Famous tourist attraction. Fun viewing all the caricatures. However, food was terrible and there was a musty odor about the place.

My wife and I arrived early (it was raining, so we figured we'd sightsee after we ate) for our 6:00 reservation and were seated immediately and politely. We were met immediately by a gentleman serving our choice of bread and filled water glasses. The menu...More

The bar is upstairs not convenient if you are unable to attack the stairs. However, once you're at the bar - bartenders are wonderful, bar has a good selection of food. And it's perfect pre or post theatre.

We visited as a pre-theatre dinner so we had a time constraint. Service was excellent and quality and value were also adequate, but the vibe and environment leaves a very sterile and non-friendly feel. Definately a perfect place if you want NO interaction friendly or...More

This restaurant is a NYC staple. They serve delicious fish dishes, and their service is impeccable. Highly recommend this true gem in the city before or after a broadway show.

Visited after viewing 'Wicked', we went to Sardi's. Saw Judge Judy there. We enjoyed taking pictures and identifying all the celebs that hang on Sardi's walls. The wait staff were kind and even stayed a bit longer to accommodate us. You MUST try the Boccone...More

This venue has an old world charm. The menu is somewhat limited, and they struggle a bit with gluten free options but they do make an effort. The food is very good. Do not buy the wine by the glass...the glass is tiny, and better...More

I'm not sure if there is a step,or two at front door but I do know that the restrooms are up a steep flight of stairs. Best to call restaurant and check if any special accommodations are on first floor.

Only the downstairs not the bar upstairs Unfortunately. That is where the action is. They might have a lift available but I do not know if one for the bar. Sorry
