We spotted this restaurant in the hotel guide. We booked our table for 7.30pm, were seated promptly and served with drinks soon after. The service was really good with attentive waiters. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Very Italian, very...More

Patsy's is the best in traditional 'been there, done that'. Like Harry's Bar in Venice or Brandi in Napels. It's not a night out, nore the most spectacular food or the spic&span interior. It's all about tradition, looking at the waiter, seeing people's behaviour. It's...More

Good food. Fun place. Waiters a little snooty but friendly. Excellent place to dine before or after theater.

I was especially impressed with the service, as we drink A LOT of water, and every time we got close to the bottom of the glass, someone was there to refill it. 99% of the time at other restaurants we have to ask for a...More

The very first thing we do when planning a trip to NYC is call Patsy's for a reservation! The food, service and atmosphere are just what we are looking for in a dining experience. I particularly like the veal dishes-I think I've had them all,...More

By far an Italian Cuisine Masterpiece that has been amazingly consistent since I was a kid. In Manhattan, there are tons of red-sauce joints, of course, which are mostly Italian/American, but none that have the Neopolitan flair that the Scognamillo Family have brought to Midtown...More

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

Save yourself from an overpriced average quality food restaurant. There are so many great authentic Itslian restaurants that will serve you better. The staff are not even Italian.

It depends on what time & what day of the week. For Weekends at say, 8p, I'd say 1 month. For earlier times or weekdays (exc. Friday), say 6pm, you should be fine reserving in a weeks time. Why not simply reserve asap then... More

Yes, if you let the restaurant know ahead of time, I think they'll make a fuss. It is a very good restaurant, and the management and employees are very nice people.
