We had a meal and drinks here while we stayed in NYC. The service was fantastic. Our waiter was brilliant and also a big 'thank you' to Jonathan (from Clare, Ireland) who gave us wonderful suggestions and tips. His knowledge was superb. Our food was very good and drinks were too. I would definitely recommend this place.

Had lunch at the bar. Friendly bartender and very good service. If you want to sit at a table it would be hard to get at lunch time.Casual food was very good but pricey. Good beer choice.

We stubble across Jacks as it started to rain. We had lunch at the bar as they had no tables available. Food was an easy 8/10! We decided to give it a try that evening, the place is a lot quieter after 9pm and we sat and enjoyed the evening in comfort! Price wise for New York it was very... More

I had pre-theater lunch here with a girlfriend. The place was attractive and busy, but the noise level was awful. We were yelling to hear each other. Neither of us were crazy about the menu. We couldn't find a simple, basic salad that we could top with either chicken or shrimp, etc. The salads were beet, or cauliflower, endive, etc.... More

Jacks is a great little gem just off Broadway. The menu has many delicious choices and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. I have had the Chicken Pot Pie which was delicious,a great choice during winter. The fish and chips is outstanding, hot,crispy and a huge portion. I recently had the salmon special which was just delicious. Perfectly cooked... More

This came recommended by the Hilton Times Square staff. It is a walk right around the corner, very quaint and fantastic food. No flashing lights to get you there but the food will make you never forget it :-)

We came upon this place on our way to see a Broadway show. They offer a reasonable before show dinner (appetizer, main and dessert) for $35. We really enjoyed it. Service was good. A busy place, nice atmosphere, good food. My husband loved the cheesecake and my tomato soup was delicious. Would recommend for sure.

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.
