Visited this TGIs for lunch. The restaurant looks like a blast from Friends with the bar at the entrance. It is in a bad need of a reburbishment as the decor and furniture is very old and dated but helped to give it character. The food was ok but not the best and to be honest not what you would... More

Disappointing! We assumed it would be the same as we have experienced in the U.K. - far from it! Decor shabby. Food arrival slow. Over cooked and cold fries that could not be eaten so nearly $20 for a burger!!!

We love TGI's but this is definitely not to their standard, there was 5 of us eating and they got 4 meals wrong, took them away 20 minutes later came back and 2 were still wrong, the toilets were a total disgrace, in fact the whole restaurant had a funny smell about it and was not very clean, i wish...

I had one meal here during my stay in New York, very good food, the service was good also. I would recommend TGIs if you are visiting NYC.

Food was ok. As mentioned by others the toilets are not very good-lock was broken on door. steak was overcooked. Server was ok and we didnt wait too long. although it does make u feel uncomfortable when being pushed for tips. Overall wasnt too bad, but could have been better. Also i was surprised to see how much salt is... More

We had a short 10-hour stay in New York on the 24th of December and after visiting The Rockefeller Center, we decided to find something to eat. Unfortunately, TGI was the first thing we stumbled upon and having had previous good experience with TGI in both Copenhagen and Prague, we thought it would be okay. However, I really regret that...

Don't be fooled by the location, the restaurant upstairs is a far contrast from the lovely looking bar downstairs. Too many tables upstairs all packed in too close together. Staff pushy for tips - Brits are not used to this so it is very off putting. food was pretty average - i've eaten better at home in a TGI in... More

Having recently eaten the great burgers at Shake Shack, the burgers at TGI seem pretty average. There was something off about the dressing and the buns. Not sure what though...

Horrible place. Dirty. Staff are rude and never smile. Food is over priced and cold. Avoid this place and spend your money else where.

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.
