Staff were great. Liam was looking after us and worked extremely hard the whole time we were there. A credit to the place. Food was great and reasonable. Drinks were in line with what you expect to pay in the centre of Manhattan. Had a good experience and would definately go back

We watched the Super Bowl here, the place was packed. We still got great service, the food was good and the drinks were great. The place is either 3 or 4 stories tall, plenty of room for lots of people. It was a short walk from Times Square. We actually ate here twice, the second time it was much less... More

It's nice and empty at 10am and they're actually serving food. Good bar food - chicken tenders done lightly. I think the bartender heard us say the drinks seemed kind of weak and suddenly she brought us another round on the house. We'd go back for sure.

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.
