I had a burger, fries and a beer for around $26. Food, beer and service were all good. I would recommend it.

Great food, and not a bad price (considering the location.) I got the 3rd Ave Chopped Salad with skirt steak...excellent choice! Our waitress was very friendly, we did not have to wait for a table, and the food came out pretty quickly. Overall enjoyed the experience and would recommend it! Great location too, but only drawback is that it can... More

The food was great I had the tuna carpaccio and the Clark burger . The tuna was a perfect blend when you mix the garnish with it. We ate by the window in an intimate part of the restaurant loved it I will be back.

Nice small restaurant in historic building. Have made this a stop on every Manhattan trip. The food and the service are great!

If you want to sit at the bar and enjoy a bloody Mary and a cheeseburger with a couple of roaches by all means go there. The bartender smacked and killed the roach and we were treated to a couple of drinks. But two cheeseburgers cost us $38.00. Enough said.

One of our best meals in NYC. The cuisine is good (not outstanding, but very tasty) and the place and the service is just great. It makes the whole dining experience very pleasant. Definitely not the place for going with children (although we did it) but very enjoyable in any case. Have a cocktail while you wait at the front... More

Touted as one of the city's great historic restaurants, patronized by city's glitterati, Clarke's is not any place I would go out of my way to go to. The old building sticks out like a sore thumb surrounded by new construction, and the interior ambiance is not that much different than a TGIFriday's. The food is good and the service... More

Man they really pack 'em in here! It's one of those places where you're right on top of the people sitting next to you, but that's NYC I guess. If you're claustrophobic I wouldn't recommend the place. The food was decent, not great. Their burgers were way hyped up so I got one but I wasn't really that impressed. It... More

Very good onion soup. Great friendly service. Enjoyed the prime rib sandwich and chips. Very quiet for an early lunch. Good for people watching

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.
