I've always loved Chevy's, and in other cities I'll go to them - but Time Square area and Chevy's was not a winning combination. The food was reasonable (even though the server messed up the order twice), but way too pricey. For two of us the bill (before tip) was about $90 for 2 entrees, a soda, a water, and... More

First of all this place was out of cheese dip, I mean how does a Mexican restaurant run out of cheese dip. Service was slow, food ok, for the price should be a lot better. Top shelf Margaritas were not top shelf, very sour. Chips and salsa were good. Will not eat here again.

Ate here prior to seeing a Broadway show and didn't have a lot of time to shop around in the cold weather for something more enticing. The Mexican food was good and decent, but way overpriced. But that's Times Square.

After reserving a table as there were six of us, we still had to wait over an hour for a table. We were not offered a drink or a menu to look at while waiting. Instead just told to wait on a bench. Had a young child who was getting tired and hungry as well as grown ups who could... More

Service was very good, I had a yummy margarita, My Partner had a Quesadilla and I had a chimichanga and an enchilada which were delicious. A nice touch for when we sat down was a bowl of tortilla chips and some salsa while we were waiting on our food and drinks. It was a nice send of to our time... More

We came here right after getting to New York because it was close to our hotel. It took a very long time to get any kind of service. The margaritas were just ok, not the best (although I might be spoiled coming from Dallas where all of the margaritas are great). We split the nachos and they were quite tasty.... More

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.
