I was looking for a bar and grille scene but away from all of the tourists in Times Square. I found this location in Hell's Kitchen part of town. The waitress immediately told me that she is here to serve me and make my dreams come true. Very odd opening, it would have been different if I were attending a... More

The food was good, flavorful. It was NYC Times Square prices. The service was fast and the food servers were quick. They were a bit short staffed on waiters but in the end was a good meal.

Stopped in here for breakfast. Was just ok. Pricey for breakfast. Omelet was $13. They were out of orange juice which seemed odd. Felt like I was eating in a bar. My husband and family liked the breakfast apt though. Food was prepared food. Waitress and staff were wonderful and friendly.

Stopped by for a quick bite to eat during happy hour. Ordered the chicken parm with salad--it all came on one plate. It was forgettable. Atmosphere was great and happy hour prices weren't bad--but wouldn't eat there again.

Hmmm well it was ok. The food was decent enough and the portion sizes varied. The drinks were expensive and didn't taste as nice as other places. It's a nice place for dinner, to socialise and to meet people for the evening before heading off out. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Probably won't return but I wish everyone there the... 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.
