This was an unexpected highlight of our trip. I had planned on going here because it sounded like a fun novelty and something the kids would like. I expected it to be fun, but it far exceeded my expectations. It was my 12 year old's number one favorite part of our entire five day trip to NYC - she liked... More

Music awesome, our waiter Courtney was amazing and sings so beautiful. I would probably focus a bit more in the cleaning but I totally understand the concept and that is not a fancy restaurant. Perfect place to visit while in New York.

Go late in the evening for cheesecake or another dessert and watch the fabulous show by the waiters and waitresses without having to wait in a very long line outside. Very comfortable diner and friendly staff.

This is my third visit to Ellens! It has changed so much since 2013! I remembered the amazing singers/waiters who seemed to love their job, well what a down fall! It is a very sad show and the meal wasn't too good either! I was disappointed for the friends I brought with me... That was the last time for me!

The staff was energetic and... More

Went here one morning for breakfast with my boyfriend. The place is great, great atmosphere the minute you walk in the energy the staff have so early in the morning is unreal! It's defiantly worth a visit while in New York and food is great

The food was fantastic and reasonably priced. The speed of service was great, and the waiters/waitresses were very friendly and chatty. The singing waiters and waitresses were excellent and very talented. The only problems were that the tables were really close together and it was so loud you couldn't really have a conversation with anyone. But it didn't spoil what... More

Our 3 teenagers and my wife and I enjoyed the singing and entertainment. The food was good too. The line was long outside, but remarkably it moved quick and our wait was less than 20 min. I was surprised that it was non-stop Broadway show tunes--some classics, some current show songs and some Disney too.

We went to dinner here just because of the menu at the front door only to find out that the menu items had changed. We were accommodated with the choices we requested and the singing of the waitstaff was pleasant to listen to.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
