Shrimp and crab enchiladas were outstanding. A little expensive but in Times Square so understandable. The queso was pretty good too. Fast service.

Visited today as our tour picked us up outside so decided to go in and wait and order a drink. The guy who served us Sammy was brilliant didn't push us into ordering and suggested drinks. When I said I wasn't that hungry he brought out some amazing cheese and nachos for us to nibble, great service and lovely food... More

I visited here after attending the AMC across the street. Great fresh Mexican food. Happy hour running 4 - 8 pm daily ! Well worth a visit. Great food at a very reasonable price. Strongly recommended, especially if addicted to good chicken fajitas !

We had about a 45 minutes to an hour window to waste before we saw a movie across the street, so we decided to run in and grab some chips and queso. Our waiter didn't take our drink order until 10-15 minutes after we sat down. Then it took another 15 minutes to bring out queso. And another 10 minutes... More

Four of us went to to Chevy's on a Saturday evening before seeing Aladdin. I made 6 pm reservations, but that was really unnecessary. Reserved seating is upstairs and it was empty! I assume it has something to do with the weather - it was snowing a LOT that entire day into the night so the city was not overly... More

Hopes for an early lunch with quick service dissolved into a pregnant pause! New Year holiday period and apparently, on our visit, only one cook! Waitress was attentive and apologetic but other staff were very distant, uncaring and completely unresponsive. For what is no more or better than a fast-food chain, the food was typically uninspiring, underwhelming but painfully slow... More

As near to a fast food joint,as you can get,but still be called a restaurant ! Food was tasty and plentiful. Service was very quick and friendly. Prices were reasonable. Sadly,sticky tables and grimy looking floors.

We dined at this restaurant again just before leaving New York. The pictures of the breakfast menu lured us in. The pancakes on everyone's plate looked amazing but sadly to say we had just missed breakfast and they were now on lunch. I am not sure if anything was going on upstairs but downstairs there were very few customers so... More

This place is a shambles! We arrived at 10am for breakfast and was placed in the doorway despite the restaurant only having about 3 other tables in. We asked for orange juice, they had ran out, we asked for chorizo, they had ran out. The tables that then come in after us got orange juice? Not sure how that one... 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.
