When wandering around NYC Bryant Park is a must and no reason not to include a glass of wine at this lovely outdoor bar.

Went to Bryant Park to see the rink and the little stores around. It was a very cold afternoon so we decide to have a glass of wine and rest. Great ambience, server were very courteous. My daughter have the mac and cheese and love it.

I just experienced the worst moments in this place. I asked the manager if it is possible to swap the table? the answer was "yes but only if we order food", I asked why she is saying that? she responded these tables was reserved for people who orders food which it's not true. So the moral of my experience is... More

Nicely located in Bryant Park, this place is great for a relaxing lunch in the middle of the city. Burgers and salads as usual, nothing really incredible, kind service

This is quite a place to visit in the park. My family just had drinks here. When they finally got the order right, things were great. The price of just ordinary well drinks are pricey but it is NYC

Would have been chilled, except the gentleman who seated us was exceptionally rude and really ruined our day. Serious attitude problem; completely uncalled for. Plenty of more polite options nearby.

Just arrived in New York and went to what looked like a nice bar for a beer. After sitting down my partner went up to the bar to order and came back with our beers. (No obvious waitresses around when we sat, so assumed this was a self serve). He was swiftly followed by the guy from the podium who... More

I went there for drinks on a Friday night. The place was packed. There were people standing, because there were no more seats. I had my wine in a plastic cup which was disappointing, but I guess it is a security measure. Prices are outrageous, I guess because of the location. The place was too noisy to me since I... 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.
