Really enjoyed Jack's. Have been there for after show drinks before but this is the first time we've eaten there. A nice casual menu. Clean and bright.

Having heard many rave reviews about Jack's, when I was lucky enough to be in NYC for the marathon in November Jack's was definitely one of the top spots on my places to visit. Went in with my parents & had one of the best meals we had during our visit to the big apple. My dad would be one... More

Met two friends for lunch. Waitress was great. Attentive but not pushy, she got that talk was more important than food. We had two pot pies - very large but lacking something. My vegetarian friend ordered the Brussels sprouts without bacon. Bacon was delivered. Waitress immediately saw the problem, and got another order in minutes. Good correction. Would eat there...

EI found Jack's on a web search looking for places to eat Thanksgiving Dinner. While we had a prix fixe menu - the meal was delicious. The hostess was friendly, and our server Collette bent over backwards to make our experience the best. Even moving us when weren't completely comfortable - her suggestion and noticed immediately. Helped with some particular... More

Really really bad. I had nothing to give thanks for after this meal. Everything on my plate and my wife and children's was cold except the turkey. And then the cheque arrived and it was $250.

Went to Jack's on Black Friday after a long day of walking. Our server Fabricio did a splendid job with us! We had the Crispy Fried Spring Rolls (just the right amount of crisp with fresh ingredients inside), the Fried Chicken Sandwich (done to perfection!), the Jack's Burger (excellent) and Roasted Brussel Sprouts (oh, the bacon!). Plus, a top notch... 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.
