I recently traveled to NYC and had my South African boyfriend with me and it was his first time and there is no better restaurant to take someone for their first time. The restaurant was cute, clean and the staff was very attentive and friendly. Its located in the Renaissance in Times Square and we were given a table looking... More

The view on Times Square down below is just exceptionnal, even though this place is only on the fourth floor. Drinks are normally priced - margaritas tasted good. The waiters are not very welcoming - the first thing they tell you is that you have an hour, not more - but you can live with it and after this strange... More

Booked the exclusive and pricey NYE party - but we were treated to everything we wanted. Seated one row back from the window and saw the ball drop - wonderful. Great atmosphere, with delicious food, drinks till 1 am, professional dancers, photo booth, fun, fans, and the view you cannot drag your eyes from. It is everything it promises to... More

My friends and I came here to celebrate my birthday while in the city. It was late when we got there, so we only had about an hour to really enjoy it. Beautifully decorated, and the view can not be beat. We had fun with Dawson, who apparently is not a fan of our Patriots, but sent over a dessert... More

Bitterly disappointed ! Emailed a few weeks before and booked a table for a weekend visit for my partners birthday and asked if possible for a seat with a view. The hotel replied and said they would 'try' which I understood. We arrived on time and explained the booking, the waiter didn't even listen and ushered us to a seat... More

The views were amazing, and the food was pretty good as well. I would definitely say the food is fairly priced.

You really cannot beat the view in this restaurant especially if you get a window seat which we luckily did. It's such a nice place to sit and have a drink. You pay for the view through the drink prices but it honestly is worth every penny. The only thing letting this place down MASSIVLEY is the staff. I think... More

R Lounge. Write it down and make sure you go if you are a goody tourist like us. It's a cool hotel bar that overlooks Time Square with a 180 degree panoramic view. Food is OUTSTANDING! Just appetizer type food. Price is moderate. Family of 4 with drinks looking at $100-$120, about $20-$30 a person. Have to make a reservation.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
