On the second night of a trip to NYC, we thought we'd go to T.G.I's - we wanted a 'standard' option and we figured that it might not be too pricey, although annoyingly there were no menus on display.
On the plus side, a table was ready for us straight away - something hard to find at peak dinner time in NYC. However, when we got to the table, we were only seated about 2 minutes before we looked at each other and confided that we didn't really want to stay. The table was sticky and had some food debris on it. The floor was covered in crumbs and looked very unclean. I think I would have put up with it if the menu was cheaper - but I was shocked to see that it was very costly for a T.G.I chain , most meals were $19 or more. The restaurant was also very noisy - there were lots of children/families in, which I don't mind (I was a 21 year old on a fun holiday with her mum, we weren't looking for a quiet, romantic meal) but the claustrophic atmosphere made the noise particularly hard to bear!
I think if it was more affordably priced, it would be a good restaurant for families. The choice on the menu looked good but I can't obviously vouch for quality. Hate to say anything bad but sorry T.G.I., you might be worth a miss for other travellers looking for a standard affordable meal in basic but clean surroundings.
