Although I visit NYC 2-3 times a year, this was my first chance to visit Patsy's. Great, classic Italian dishes - their Caesar salad is to die for. Service is very good - it is obvious that the staff has been there for years and treats the restaurant and each guest as if they were the only one in the... More

My husband and I went to Patsy's for lunch to celebrate our first anniversary. The food was absolutely amazing! The server and the owners came by to wish us a happy anniversary and brought us a dessert with a little candle in it. They even gave us a gift of their special marinara sauce! Thank you all so much for... More

We visited Patsy's as a birthday dinner on our trip to NYC. We had four adults and two teenagers - and everybody left crazy-happy. Every morsel of food was to-die-for, surpassed only by the kind and heartfelt service of all staff members. Don't miss this lovely tradition!!!

Our service was over the top during our visit. Our server Diego, was fantastic and the owners were walking around helping us out with all of our needs as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and would return again without any hesitation. Everyone went above and beyond for us. Thank you

We were excited to try the famous Patsy's, but were disappointed . First off, prices were high. Secondly, service was extremely slow. I asked for little sauce on my pasta and it came swimming in sauce. I did not enjoy it at all. So many great places in NYC, why we wasted our time here, I don't know. If you... More

We were a family group of 12 the night before Thanksgiving. We had a lovely quiet table upstairs. Service was very good and the food was plentiful, pretty and delicious. We were a mix of adults and teens. Ordering was lengthy and our waiter patient. Food came out hot and correct. My husband and I had eaten here before. We... More

Located a few blocks away from Central Park, this a great option for italian cuisine. The staff however, is not too kind, specially when arrive asking for a table. Wait time seems to be too long, despite having empty tables where you could be located. Besides that, food is great.

Great atmosphere, food and service. We just walked in and it was packed. But they worked us in after 10 minutes. It is old school Italian with a flare. Definitely a place to get to when in NYC.

The best Italian food I've had. Service was quick and courteous, staff was very professional and helpful. Reminded us what dinning is supposed to be like. The atmosphere was cozy and comfortable-- appeared to be a local crowd. Meatballs for appetizer was 'the ticket', the chef came out and explained the dishes and answered our questions. He was not put... 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.
