Go around the corner to Ichabod's (15th St & Irving) and support the local merchants rather than this chain that is not part of the texture of NY. I live on this block.

Yep - quintessential american food - big serves and good service - if your non -American one main will do.

We visited this TGI's, which was ok but not as good as the UK chain. The restaurant was quiet when we visited and the food was over priced. Plates were a bit scuffed. There are better diners around.

My wife and I stopped in for a bite to eat after a day of shopping. We grabbed a couple of appetizers before getting back to the hotel.

Went there for appetizers and dessert. We had heard that we needed to check out the Tennessee Whisky Cake. It did not disappoint; will order it again.

Avoid this place. Nothing like TGI in the UK. Scruffy, dirty and they served stone cold food, seemed confused when we asked for a bottle of wine, had no chilled wine. Go elsewhere.

We were told 'yes ' we do gluten free food here, so we thought brilliant, after a packed day sightseeing this would be the perfect place for an evening meal. Tgi's in UK are of a high standard so we thought we could safely eat here!! How wrong were we! The waiter took our order quickly, I specifically pointed at... More

This place needs a major update as it looks old and shabby. Service is disorganized and it took long for the waiter to take our order. While the servers are friendly, they don't compensate for the lousy food. Spicy wings weren't spicy at all and pretty dry. Huge disappointment. Drinks are ok but taste more like a bunch of juices...

We have been greeted by a surly and unkind waitress. The place was cold (everybody was compelling). Food quality is sufficient. I do not recommend this place

After travelling for 14 hours to get to New York we just wanted something quick and easy to eat before we turned in. What we got was ignored. Yes ignored.
