“very good”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

we ate here twice as it was close to our hotel, the first time we had burgers which were nice and the service was excellent, the second time we had steak and again had no problem with the service. on both occassions the place was pretty full, and the prices were quite reasonable

“Expensive and dirty with poor service.”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

We stopped here for lunch expecting a nice clean restaurant with reasonably priced food. Even the appetizers were twice the price of any other Fridays. The restaurant was dirty and smelled foul. We had to walk up three flights of stairs with little or no direction from the waitstaff to figure out how to get served. We then waited over an hour for 4 plates of chicken fingers and 4 sodas (three of them were kids meals) and a Jack and Daniels Steak. The bill was over $100.00. Had we not been starving and tired we would have walked out.

Also, the employees were sitting at tables eating McDonalds which someone brought in for them and chatting. Way to represent yoru restaurant. At least eat your food in the back if you aren't going to eat the food you serve.

“This is a horrible, horrible restaraunt”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

I normal like TGIF. We were in NYC and ate here because we were tired and it was close. The prices are marked up to a ridiculous degree. Way past what other chains do in NYC. But the real complaint is the service. We waited 10 minutes to even be greeted. Another 10 to get our drinks. After we got our food after another 20 we were never checked on & never received a drink refill. And I was thirsty from walking all day. The waitress complained about breaking up the check & took forever with that too. I really wanted to complain to management but even more so doubted that they cared since they obviously ran such a poor place. We overhead tables around us complaining to. Its not as if they were packed. It was around 2pm on a weekday & we were seated right away. Just poor service all around & overpriced. Might not ever go to ant TGIF again. But stay away from this one at all costs!

“Thank god I only went once!”
Reviewed 30 May 2013 via mobile

Went there on a mid -week evening and unfortunately it was busy. Showed to a table in a corner just off the rear of the bar. Ordered our meals and then waited and waited and waited and then thought about leaving. Our server stated the kitchen had made a mistake and our meals were coming. When they came they were not as we were promised but we weren't going to complain as we were starving. And heres a tip on the suggested gratuity -dont ask for it when your service is below standard.
