We recently went to Dave and Busters near Times Square and it's so not worth it. We have two small boys ( 7 and 2 years old). We didn't want to bring them to a fancy restaurant because we knew they wouldn't sit and be well behaved. ( at least the baby wouldn't be) we went to Dave and Busters... More

Granted, they were busy but my guess is that it's always busy on an NFL Sunday in Times Square. Food was okay but poor service more than offset decent food.

We visited here a week ago with our 2 children. They are ages 15 and 12. The food was good, and the children had lots of fun with the games. It was a bit pricey, but we expected that.

We had 3 adults and 6 kids and all of us were very happy with our food. The boys had wings and then they each had a burger, mac and cheese burger and the philly cheese steak burger. Each burger had a very large burger with generous amount of toppings. They were 6 inches tall. The presentation was good and... More

We took our 8yo here. He LOVED it. Lots of fun, small in space so it gets crowded quick. You can order food and/or drink at the bar around the games and walk around with your drinks. People were friendly and free wifi. Good time.

had a birthday party there today. my daughter was thrilled and so were all of her guests. As a parent, I was pleased as well--the party service was great and very attentive. At one point, one of our child-guests had lost points on a machine that wasn't working. she was super upset (they were her last points . . .)... More

After leaving Madame Tousaud's, went to have something to eat. Have to go up 3 floors, for NYC, this is not unusual. We did have to wait in line and when we got to the hostess station, we were informed that there was a $5 cover per person. We immediately left and went downstairs to Applebees. Seems like there was... 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.
