we ordered 4 $14 mojitos. the bill was $78. when we questioned it, the bartender said they were more expensive because we made them with barcardi. we didn't ask for a specific rum, and nowhere on the menu did it say there was an upcharge....classic scam. avoid this place if you don't want to be cheatedMore

First night in New York and we had a hankering for a cheeseburger. As reviews looked good and it was close to our hotel, we gave it a shot! Now I apologise in advance for my photos. The bar was dim and couldn’t get a...clear photo of the food, drinks or seating. This small burger joint has a capacity of around 70 and was almost totally full, so clearly popular. You can choose to dine indoors or out but with such warm weather, dining indoors with air conditioning was a must. We ordered The Little Italy burger and The Patty Melt burger. We added a serve of fries, coleslaw plus two margaritas and a sangria. The Little Italy Burger meat was 5oz which seemed a little small. It was cooked as requested. The Patty Melt which is served on rye bread was tasty and a nice portion size but nothing to rave about. My sangria was just okay. I’d come from Phoenixville where the sangrias were some of the best I’ve had travelling my around the globe. This one was a little “watered done” with no real cinnamon or brandy flavour. My only other criticism is that it is a visual and audible overload. Music and chatter of 60 people, along with multiple tv screens showing sport and lifestyle programs. All in a dimly lit space. We literally couldn’t hear each other across the table and taking any photos was challenging. However, a big shout out to the staff, in particular Adrianna who was fast, efficient and very attentive. The total bill was $112 which seemed rather steep. $17 for a margarita! They are less than half that during happy hour from 4-6pm. I hope you have a better experience than we did. We’re off to find another cheeseburger place.More

Most excellent service! Great attitudes from the whole staff! In the post vivid world where there is a shortage of happy servers, this was such a great experience! Just a few people doing all the jobs that needed to be done whenever they needed to...be done. The hostess greeted us, told us it would be a few minutes til a table would be ready for us and invited us to sit at the bar while we waited. Next thing we knew, she was bar tending for us. We noticed some tables opened up so she went over and bussed them without hesitation and with a smile the whole time. She then seated us and became our waitress adding great menu suggestions which were spot on! The place isn’t the best looking but the atmosphere and food were the absolute best!!More

This was the last dinner on our trip to NYC in early June, and I kid you not, I would fly there again (from Cincinnati) just to eat at this restaurant. We were looking for casual dining near our hotel and landed at this place...on 38th street. I am SO GLAD we went! I had the Iberico Burger and Garlic/Herb Fries. Service was friendly and lightning fast! Their house-made Sangria was also a perfect pair with the burger! Considering the prices in NYC, this place was quite affordable. I cannot recommend them enough!More

We were looking for somewhere close to our hotel for dinner and came across the reviews for this place. It has a bit of a sports bar vibe, which we enjoyed. Service was brief but good, and food was delivered very quickly. The menu has...both burgers and salad and you can also create your own burger if you don't fancy any of their options. We visited on a Tuesday and there was a lot of reservations, so perhaps worth booking on a weekend. I would recommend.More

After nearly a month in the USA we’ve just had the best burger ever. Light, beautifully cooked, great variations to meet everyone’s needs and wonderful sides too. Thank you to the team at Black Iron Burger.

We arrived in NYC looking for somewhere we could feed the children but also enjoy a relaxed evening ourselves. We’ve been as a couple a few times but this was our first time with the children (age 11 & 14). The service was amazing, and...in New York that’s saying something! The staff couldn’t do enough to make sure we enjoyed our visit. The kids say these are the best chicken tenders ever and I have to agree! The wings and loaded fries were a winner too. We loved this so much we are sat here on the last night of our holiday enjoying it once again. The burgers tonight are amongst the best we’ve ever had and once again the staff here are amazing. Can’t recommend enough. Midtown barMore

We are a family of 4, we came here on our first night tired & hungry, and we found this place to be excellent. The burgers are great as were the sides we ordered. The staff are all lovely and very attentive, and we found...the prices were quite reasonable. We enjoyed it so much we came back again a couple of nights later.More

Unfortunately really bad service. They gave themselves 18% tip without asking. The burgers were ok, but I want to decide the tip myself.

As a couple of other people have replied, I don't think reservations are taken. They seat you as table space opens up.
