It was fine. Food was ok. Service was slow and the restaurant was empty. I'm not sure we'll go back. It got great reviews which is why we were disappointed.

We went after the theater crowd went to their shows and had lots of privacy. Food was very good and the price fixe theater option was welcome and taken advantage of by several in our party. Shrimp risotto app was very good, as was both the hanger steak and filet. Roasted corn soup was positively reviewed by others in our... More

Went with a party of 7 for a lunch. Glass house came highly recommended by our concierge.. it did not disappoint as we were all famished.. chicken Milanese was enormous and delightful.. shrimp risotto was divine, salmon was cooked to perfection. We would not hesitate to return.. service was great as it was a quiet Tuesday for lunch

Average at best. Very loud; very rushed - and most sadly, the fish had no taste! Nice to be convenient to the theater, but Starbucks would have been better.

Glass House is a must stop place after a night at the theatre. They have a great bar menu, good cocktails, and a lively atmosphere. The staff is always accommodating and we always have a great time when we stop in!

We often go to a Saturday matinee and are always looking for somewhere near the Theatre District for a relaxing cocktail, lunch and/or brunch. We had tickets to shows 2 Saturdays in a row and both times, we ate here. We were not disappointed, I don't think you will be either. Happily, we found The Glass House is convenient, cozy... More

The waiters were alerted that we had theater tickets so everything popped. The food and drinks were wonderful and everyone in our party of 8 were totally satisfied. There was even a separate vegan menu with superb choices. Floating to the nearby theater after a great meal and wonderful show made it a night to remember.

The ambiance comfortable, but unremarkable. We were a party of four and no one had a complaint about the food. I enjoyed a sliced duck breast breast that was done to perfection and the accompaniments were very good.. Service was efficient and very pleasant. Would go again.

After an evening at the Schubert Theater, we wanted a nice dinner, and found it at the Glass House Tavern. While the downstairs bar is lively and loud, the upstairs dining room is elegant, well-appointed, and relatively intimate. The wait staff is professional and very charming, and the food is wonderful. And its location, only a block from Times Square... More

You feel a great energy when you walk into the Glass House Tavern. The decor is soothing and warm and truly makes the customer feel welcome. The prompt, friendly service is delightful and the food is incredible. Executive Chef Craig Cupani has created a contemporary American menu that sets this restaurant apart from the other choices in the neighborhood. Fresh, seasonal ingredients are the emphasis here and the results are fantastic.

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.
