Went here due to the reviews on tripadvisot and we weren't disappointed. I would suggest making a reservation as we walked in at 6pm on a Sunday and they were still rampacked. They did all they could to get us a seat. Wine was lovely, pasta and prawns large, go here when starving just so you can savour all of... More

No visit to New York City would be complete without a visit to Patsy's! From the stuffed calamari, to the clams casino and cannoli cake, everything is perfection! Sal never misses an opportunity to be sure that you are happy and pay your table a visit. ❤

Very nice italian restaurant family owned since several generations. No stress, very good food, top hospitality. Situated between Central Park and Times Square, so easy to reach from lots of hotels and touristic highlights.

The best thing about this place its he decor and the staff. Ask for a table in the downstairs room which is decorated with pictures of famous people who have visited the place. Our waiter (I think his name was Tony) was very helpful and also entertaining. The food was ok, but nothin to write home about. I had pasta... More

Every time I am in Manhattan and have the chance to eat at Patsy's, I am never disappointed. First and foremost, the food never fails to please. Combine that with excellent service, a great location, and reasonable prices, and you simply can't lose. If you grew up in an Italian home, and are used to eating great Italian food, then... More

We went for brunch and there basically was not a Sunday brunch. We arrived as it opened on Sunday morning about noon. Attentive wait staff. Nice atmosphere and a gazillion photos of the famous people that have eaten there. No half portions so there was a lot of food leftover. Sue and I split a caesar salad with a bunch... More

Food and service is the best! Everything about Patsys is perfect. It is very romantic because of its history and charm. Every item 4 of us ate was delicious. The wait staff is exquisite and perfectly attentive. The kitchen staff checks to see if things are going well and are concerned with quality. Great experience!

Patsy's is obviously an institution in NYC and for good reason. Intimate, attractive dining area and excellent service. I ordered an appetizer and the waiter recommended adding meatballs - smart move as they were delicious.

Although I was raised in north Jersey, for the past 25 years I've lived in the Austin, Texas area. This week I was on a business trip to NYC, and was looking for an authentic Italian restaurant that tasted just like my Italian parents and grandparents' food. I found it when I visited Patsy's for my first time. When I... More

Nice menu, decently priced. The Caesar Salad was one of the best I have had. The egg plant parmigiana was very good and so was the salmon. Service was excellent. Not far from Broadway and the theatre district.

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.
