Fresh salat and other toppings, tasty sauces, perfect made 100% beef burgers and crispy fries. Great and welcoming serving :-) We were 4 adults and got the "build your own burger" + fries. Three beers and two (large) sodas that were refilled for free! Total price including 20% gratitude: $ 135 which is very reasonable and good value for money... More

We visited as 2 adults and 3 kids under 12. We hadn't booked and stunned up at 6.40pm and seated straight away in a very busy restaurant. Service was helpful, friendly and without delay. Prices were very reasonable and we happened to be there during happy hour so drinks were $5 (pints of Stella/ale). The kids' milkshakes were to die... More

Burgers customized or order off menu. Burgers were good. Had a coupon for free french fries to go with burgers, glad they were free because they were cold and hard. Midnight stop and it was relatively busy. We had a little wait but food came out pretty quick. Good place to grab a burger, when you need some food after... More

My wife and I were trying to decide what to eat for dinner when we came across this place. The place was pretty busy so we thought it's got to be good. We both had the Counter Burger with Fries and it was really good. Cook to order the way you like it plus our waitress was super nice and... More

I've eaten several times at The Counter in Palo Alto but didn't realize there were any East Coast locations. This was an unexpected find for a delicious burger and great service.

Recently tried The Counter and I am now a convert! The "build your own" option can soon become a herculean task, but one that is well worth it. Great Happy Hour prices on drinks and nibbles.

We came upon "The Counter" by accident on our way to see a matinee yesterday. We were looking for a lighter lunch since we were going out for a special dinner. The Counter was perfect. The 1/3 lb build your own burger was exactly what I was looking for. The restaurant was very crowded but we were seated right away... More

We had a very good meal at The Counter. Custom burgers are delish and we loved sweet potato fries. Service is very rapid and good. I recommend big Turkey burger. Thank you!

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.
