“Can't Find This In Los Angeles”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

This restaurant was exactly what I was hoping for (authentic Italian cuisine). We saw this restaurant when we were taking a walk, close by our hotel. My husband and I had drinks at the bar waiting for a table - there were celebrities (pleasantly) having pictures taken with tourists (don't recommend this is LA). We had salads and the cannelloni. The desserts are enough for four people to share. Our bill for two with drinks and tip was under $100.

“A Meal? Better, A Food Experience!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Patsy's was recommended to us as an authentic, New York Italian Restaurant. The fact that it was once frequented by Frank Sinatra and a number of his friends and guests, only added to the charm.
We were lead to a second floor table for five, and from the moment we sat down the service, ambiance and enthusiasm for the food showed through. We had a variety of appetizers, which were all excellent. Prosciutto wrapped asparagus, calamari were perfect and quickly disappeared. The main course included beef, pasta, Arctic char and again, not a whimper of complaint. Everyone was in food heaven. During the main course, the owner and Chef, Sal visited with us and talked about the restaurant and the food. His father created the restaurant and is still alive, but it is obvious that the son has just as much passion for the food as his father did. We ended up buying two of his cookbooks, and looked at several personal photos.
All five of us normally refuse dessert, but not this night. The Neapolitan cake was out of this world.

Everyone left, fully satisfied and expressing enthusiasm for the whole experience. Dinner for give, including three bottles of wine was just under $900.00. Worth the money? Absolutely.

“Exceeded Expectations”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We asked the hotel to recommend an authentic Italian Restaurant and they both stated Patsys. I asked if they would recommend any others and they said NO!! Called and got reservation that day for 9:00 reservation. Our hotel was just a few blocks from here so we had a quick walk over. We sat at the bar and had a few drinks taking in the atmosphere. Bartender stated he had been there 30 years.My wife and I got the Veal dish and Spaghetti and both were fabulous. We wanted dessert but were too full! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting NYC. I don't believe they take reservations online so make sure to call ahead and get reservations. The place is small but I would recommend getting there a little early to have a drink and view all the photos that cover the walls.
