Ordered 2 dishes 1 hamburger with fries and 1 salmon dish with lobster on top. We waited 1hr from sitting to getting food. The hamburger we had from McDonald's earlier in the day was tasty but this TGI Friday's burger was low grade. The French fries were good. The salmon was really gross. I bit into the broccoli and it... More

Travelled to NYC with friends and after a day on the open top red bus was looking forward to chilling out in a "typical" city fast food restaurant. The waitress was a real character and looked after us very well. The food was not so good nothing bad enough to complain about but not very well presented or cooked. The... More

This 2 star ranking is by TGI Friday's standards. This was the worst food I have ever had in NYC. Dirty, smelly restaurant. Waiters were polite enough but looked very unkempt. Service was slow. Food was just a mess.

We have two local TGIS in the U.K. Close to where we live, the food here is piping hot, the food here arrives warm, and the fries are not twice cooked. My burger bun just broke into crumbs (old) .. The only thing that saved this place from a complaint was the young man running the bar, behind their on... More

Glad I wasn't in a hurry! Waitstaff really didn't want to be serving customers in our section. I (and others) waited almost twenty minutes for a menu (I was about to walk out). People next to me waited even longer than that to have their order taken. I only got my order taken because another table got fed up, dragged... More

If you want a cheap thrill this is not the place to go. On arrival we were met by a grumpy waitress who sat us down and abruptly reminded us that food was going to be about 40minutes - now didn't know if this was the New Yorker attitude or whether or not she was having a bad day, whilst... More

Good food... Poor service and even after all the ignorance they had the audacity to highlight the highest tip value. I expect a lot better for my money just off NYC. Chefs deserve some credit as the food was tasty

We visited last evening. Our expectation was it would be like TGIs in Glasgow which is nice to sit in. Nice decor. Decent food for the prices which are on the steep side. Here in NY it was not like that. No nice decor. Place was like a canteen or school dinner hall. We were shown to our table. Order... More

Pretty much what you'd expect from reading the reviews here: food is ok, but way overpriced. Drinks and food came late. Waitress didn't much seem to care. This place got its location going for it, but that's about it.

Waited long time for food. Disorganised. Food average and expensive. Toilets a disgrace. Staff lovely just seemed chaotic and understaffed . Had feeling was more of a management issue as the staff were lovely. Wouldn't recommend any one to go specially if close to seeing a show .

Thank Gaynor T

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.
