Average food, friendly server but very slow! Also was more concerned with her conversation with other servers than picking up our check so we could leave. Not the worst, but I wouldn't eat here again.

The service was awful, the food was cold, and the building was hot. Definitely a waste of time and money.

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

For anyone who has ever celebrated New Year's Eve here, are you actually able to watch the ball drop outside or can you only watch on the tv inside the restaurant? Just curious. I know dave and buster's provides a space outdoors for their guests to view at midnight. Don't want to drive all the way to new York to watch the ball drop on tv, when I can do that back home in SC.
