Had a great experience at Patsy's. The good was great, one of the best dirty martinis I have had. The food and service were exceptional. I would highly recommend.

We were taken upstairs to a drafty corner table and then hurried through our ordering by a snobbish head waiter. We decided to split orders as we viewed very large portions being delivered to other tables. I was not impressed w/ the manicotti but the tricolored salad was refreshingly good. We finished off our meal w/ tiramisu, but the $24... More

Consistently a great Italian restaurant that offers classic Roman Italian dishes. Be sure to make a reservation - the place is busy because it's great. It's been a top choice for the Manhattan area for many decades.

Great food, service. We had the penne ala vodka, cheese manicotti and the tiramisu. If there on a weekend, reservations are a must.

Although I visit NYC 2-3 times a year, this was my first chance to visit Patsy's. Great, classic Italian dishes - their Caesar salad is to die for. Service is very good - it is obvious that the staff has been there for years and treats the restaurant and each guest as if they were the only one in the... More

My husband and I went to Patsy's for lunch to celebrate our first anniversary. The food was absolutely amazing! The server and the owners came by to wish us a happy anniversary and brought us a dessert with a little candle in it. They even gave us a gift of their special marinara sauce! Thank you all so much for... More

We visited Patsy's as a birthday dinner on our trip to NYC. We had four adults and two teenagers - and everybody left crazy-happy. Every morsel of food was to-die-for, surpassed only by the kind and heartfelt service of all staff members. Don't miss this lovely tradition!!!

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.
