Annual Christmas trip with party of 12 from 11 to 63. Brunch after the Rockettes on Sunday. Typical French Bistro menu beautifully executed. Nice wine list by glass or bottle. Croque Madam, lobster roll, large hamburgers, and lobster bisque all very very good. Great service; nice atmosphere sitting in large room at right angles to the main room. Our tenth... More

A sandwich board champagne offer enticed us off the street, being in need of a sit down and drink after a lengthy 7 mile walk around Central Park. The ambience was friendly and warm, and whilst enjoying the bargain bubbly, we decided to stay for a bite to eat. We both chose burgers, which were delicious, but all the other... More

Its proximity to the Rockefeller Christmas tree made this restaurant the perfect place to enjoy small plates before taking in the Radio City Spectacular early in December! The food was delicious and the wine was fine. It was unfortunate that the host disrespected our guests, who had to educate the host with regard to his well-behaved service dog. NYC restauranteurs...

Stopped here for a drink in between shopping. We sat outside as it was a lovely day. The place is in a good spot in the Rockerfeller Centre. We never had food. I had a Bloody Mary. It was poor, bland even. The staff were friendly.

We enjoyed the people watching while eating. Seemed to be a different crowd then what you see on Times Square. Maybe more business people?it was lovely sunny day ate outside and had wine and onion soup and salad. Service was average. And I think you pay extra for food for the location.asain salad is a definite recommendation

I love this place. The service is excellent and the food selection is fabulous. I had the grilled octopus salad which was superb for the appetizer and the skate for entree. The skate was so flavorful. I had rose wine whispering angel to complement this superb lunch. The service as always was fantastic. I can't wait to return.

Everything on this menu is worth trying and I doubt you will be disappointed in anything you order! The wine list will include something for everyone's taste and the desserts are divine. The atmosphere is quiet and refined and the view from the patio dining could not be better.

The food was devine! The service impeccable. The care they took in preparing the dishes they serve was obvious. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. The desserts were as good as the meals. The prices were a bit high but not unreasonable or out of line for New York especially for the service and quality of preparation.

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.
