Our server was less than interested, couldn't get a refill on water until we asked and then the look like we wanted something special. Food was nothing special and a bit over priced. More a bar than a restaurant, server made it less than good time.

Partner and myself went for lunch yesterday. Food was cooked great, and was rather quick as well non excessive wait times. Waiters --> minimal interaction Included service charge was sneaky but apart from that okay..

I have always tried something different every time I have ate here and the food has always been great! Saying that I would only ever get lunch time meals like a burger/wrap/sandwich. I wouldn't get pasta or steak as I do think there are better places to go (looking at previous reviews). The food I have had though has always... More

My wife and I recently sat down for a meal at this so called (restaurant), service was ok at the start, we both ordered the steak- medium, was way over cooked and in saying we ordered the steak it was more like a piece of meat that you might serve to the family pet! That's if there was no normal... More

I'm always wary of bad reviews on trip advisor but in this instance I would agree with most of them. The waiters are indeed rude, not very accommodating and get aggressive if you do not agree with the 20% tip that's added to the bill. The menu is misleading so be careful to find out what is included in the... More

Bland nothing special and over priced drinks including 10 usd for a virgin mojito, nachos with cheese only on top, no raw sugar in the mojito and not even available to add. Waiter just argued when asked about this.

When we walked in, we questioned if we should stay with all the choices in NY. We were hungry, and they had tables for lunch. Pleasantly surprised. Good burgers and good portion. Waiter was attentive, if not friendly. They do state they add 18% automatically to the bill, though they did not do it when we were there.

Had dinner and drinks here on Christmas Day and overall we had a really fun night especially chatting and laughing with Ray Ray behind the bar. Food was pretty good and they are big servings. We arrived at 4pm not knowing what to expect and we left when the restaurant closed at 11:30pm. We were in New York on our... 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.
