Food was ok, a bit on the heavy side (a South African problem, the country starts to struggle with obesity). Place is a bit kitschy-american, trying ro be chic, but still small town.

The interior is really not good the chairs are very uncomfortable. The service was very good. But the food was not great and looked horrible when it came out.

“Surprising Find - Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We'd been recommended to the New York by a couple of locals and we are very pleased we took up their recommendation.

We travelled by taxi so we might drink, the restaurant has some glitz and glamour on the outside and on the inside is a very nicely appointed area. There is a smoking area, we chose the non-smoking. The service from the waitresses was excellent, efficient and the food arrived perfectly. We did not take desert but the menu was very comprehensive.

On leaving the restaurant we did ask if they could call a taxi, which they did but 20 minutes later it still hadn't turned up. The manager apologised and explained that Bloemfontein Taxi's are not that reliable. To our surprise we were then informed that one of the waitresses would drive my colleague and myself to our hotel..

Amazing service and we were overjoyed with not having to walk back. This is a restaurant which clearly cares about its food / reputation and customers well being.

Highly Recommended

My wife and I had a kind of tradition to go to New York every year on our anniversary, everytime we have been there the service was good and the food even better, the whole restaurant also sets the atmosphere for a romantic night out. Everytime the vegetables and starch that came with the main meals was also very good.

The food is great. Service has always been good. I have visited this restaurant whenever I am in Bloemfontein. I have introduced others to this restaurant and I have only had good reviews.
