Such a crappy experience. Service was atrocious. Food was overpriced and not good at all. We went here because it was across from our hotel, and we wanted something close. No Bueno!

Table side guacamole? Yes, please! A wonderful place to enjoy a great drink before or after a show. Staff isn't the friendliest but we weren't there to make friends. We were there for food and drink, which were fantastic!

My boyfriend and I were looking for a place to go Latin dancing and found this one (of many). Iguana was well worth the visit! The building itself is cool, centrally located, and has 3 stories! We didn't try the food but I loved the feel of the restaurant as we went up to the 2nd floor. The dj was... More

Met some friends here while on business with my wife. The restaurant was across the street from the hotel we were staying at. Not my first choice, but this was a place they decided on. When we walked in the place it was crowded. We were met by the hostess who was nice enough to seat us even though we... More

Had an early dinner there after a show, we ordered from the prefix menu, lots of fun! Waiters were very attentive and food was good. Guacamole was delicious and was made table side.

Visited with my friend last night. Nice atmosphere and great guacamole. BUT my Margarita was undrinkable, the burritos were tasteless and the steak was tough. The waitress was great but I would never go back. All in all a disappointment

Great welcome and service, order taken promptly and starter arrived within 5 mins which was very good, but before I got to the end of the starter, the main dish arrived and starter plates removed. Felt very rushed. Think we left the restaurant before an hour was up!

If you're a fan of Boardwalk Empire, The Aviator or just hooked on the classic, quirky american jazz orchestra era, you'll adore being transported back to the roaring 20s every Monday and Tuesday night at Iguana. That's the night when legendary Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks Orchestra transport guests back to the world of high society and prohibition, a stones... 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.
