We bought a Groupon because we wanted to try a steak house in NYC, while we were there on vacation. The service was terrible and the food was average at best. I'm glad we didn't pay full price.

Shame on the owners, They were originally AJ Maxwells Steak house and couldn't cook a steak. Now they have moved across the street and changed their name to Forty2West. But nothing has changed. Still over price, service is ok and the food still SUCKS.

One of the interesting problems with using a groupon is that one is given the penny stinker menu and you and must watch the real menu be served at the next table. I ordered filet mignon for one course and a New York strip the...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
