We decided to kill time by eating early as we had some attraction tickets booked. The sign at door said wait here to be served, after being ignored for ten minutes we walked in and stood at the end of the bar. The server showed us to a table quickly and brought us menus. We ordered our drinks and food... More

Dropped in for a drink and maybe something to eat. Sat at the bar downstairs for a drink, got ignored for 10 Mins whilst the bar tender watched football and talk to friends at the bar. moved further up the bar and finally got served, by the way there were only about 10 people in the bar. Ordered 2 Budweiser... More

Went on the election night and was not happy at all, the girl on the door was great got us a seat in 5 minutes. The starter was the best part omg delicious but after that it went down hill which got it the extra star. The service was not to any standard. The main was not good food just... More

We went to TGI Friday's one evening while in NYC as we had had a long day and just wanted some reasonable quality food at a reasonable price, this was our experience with TGI Friday's in the UK. We walked in and were seated straight away. That was about the only good point. The booth we were allocated was cramped,... More

We were hungry and tried and went to this TGI Fridays as close to where we were staying and knew in the UK the good standards they had. Wish we hadn't bothered. Staff seemed disorganised and unsure what was happening, even though the restaurant was not full. The place was dark and the floor was dirty. They got the drinks... More

Totally ignored when you walk in, showed ourselves upstairs where a waitress likened to Roz from Monsters Inc ordered us to sit at a place. Food was average at best ,restaurant us grubby and dirty, it's as if because Times Square is so busy they don't bother to make an effort as people go in there as an easy option...avoid

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
