Just a couple of comments; Good news is the wait was 5 minutes on a Friday night at 7 pm, service was very good; Bad news news is price was $144 for two adults and two teenagers (no alcohol). Actually, the entree prices weren't bad considering it's Times Square, but $23 for two desserts?? The desserts, sodas, appetizers added up... More

I think Bubba's dream was bigger than this. Staff were nice even though they served the starter after the main. The Margarita with one small Corona cost the insane amount of 31 dollars. Avoid. I didn't even get tipsy. Food? OK. Microwaved heated rice with ok tasting shrimps. My friend's burger was no way near well done as he asked... More

Jolly friendly waitresses. Lots of fabulous food though plenty of fatty options. Drinks are huge, yum and expensive. Loved sitting upstairs looking out at the screens on Time Square

Wonderful restaurant. Upmarket fast food but worth a visit or two. The staff are amazing. Fun for all visitors. Forest Gump bibs for eating and free glasses to take home. Portions are massive so don't order too much. It was my birthday and they organised a horse race round the restaurant for me and I got a free dessert. And... More

Seriously, if you come to New York, why are you going here? For the love of god, you're in one of the biggest cities in the world - GO EAT SOMEWHERE ELSE.

My family of four was seated without wait on a Tuesday night around 6:30. The atmosphere was fun, servers were efficient and friendly, food was very good, and the views of Times Square were great.

I was thrilled to visit this restaurant because Forest Gump is one of my all time favorite movies. The restaurant was pretty good, however, i did receive several nasty looks from a female waiter with a very low short hair cut...dont know what that was about but it was quite creepy. The food was ok and i really enjoyed my... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
