Irish feeling. We mainly went in for some drinks (happy hour around 4-7pm most days). With our daughter. Who loved the atmosphere! They had a wide variety of beer and some good wines. A very nice bartender who made you feel at home. Good free wifi. We went back for a second visit a few days later and the woman... More

A group of students visiting New York for the first time, we found matts grill, and thought it looked inviting to have a drink! Was welcomed by the witty barman mark, who gave exceptional service and was just a lovely man! Only a few of us went on the one night, good drinks, there were lots of choices. We felt... More

We have been in New York for 5 days so far and have eaten at Matts twice in the evenings. Both occasions we have been impressed with the quality, portions and service. Tonight we had meatloaf and a salad as well as a shared starter and dessert. Great wholesome food at a competitive price with excellent service. Highly recommended. Thanks... More

Matt's has decent pasta and good appetizers. Burgers look good. Service is good. Lot of bar traffic. Not special, but good for fast lunch or dinner

Visited the restaurant after a concert at Jazz at Lincoln Center. We checked a few places to find food after the concert and could not find anything that was open at 11PM in the area we were looking. I ordered the burger and fries. The fries were small cut up and thin which was a new experience for me, but... More

Found this little gem of a place tucked nicely away on a stroll down to Times Square! Not the biggest of menus, however very well balanced with something for everyone. Prices here were some of the cheapest I have seen so far, and the taste of the food was incredible! I thought I would try something a little different, and... More

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.
