Can't say much about the food since I walked out. I came in and was rudely seated. I mean the hostess just threw the menu on the table then walked away before I even came around the table to sit. Than after 10 minutes of...More

Very friendly staff and eager to assist and give the best service. I had the steak salad - yummy! And it's big - couldn't finish it. Great food!

The staff were as interested in doing their jobs as the food was edible...so not so much Awful greasy food served with as much love and attention as a butcher tending to a flock of chickens marked for the "chop" first time ...DEFINITELY THE LAST

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors

iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
