This was the best pasta we have ever had. Highly recommend the tortellini bolognese! Service was wonderful. We never went without water. Dropped a fork and there was a new one by my plate in 0.5 seconds. Strawberries and cream are to die for! Tony is the best server ever. If there were 6 stars we would give it 7.

We stumbled across this little gem by chance! From a distance the glowing restaurant sign looks similar to a regular NY diner but on closer inspection you will be greeted by the endless photographs in the window of celebrity diners including the likes of Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez...the list goes on...and on! We didn't have a reservation but were able to... More

If you want a very tasty home cooked type Italian meal in an elegant setting in the middle of Manhattan, there is no other place like Patsy's! First, as you walk in, they make you feel at home and treat you like family. The owner is always going around the tables making sure everything is alright. It could be George... More

We found Patsy's on Trip Advisor and decided to go there after seeing so many great reviews. I'm so glad we did, as we loved everything about the restaurant. Patsy's has a warm, cozy ambiance. There are lots of photos on the walls of celebrities who have eaten there, and I understand that many of them are return visitors, I... More

Sal and Lisa are mesmerizing people--they make you feel like you are family! Dinner was exquisite, so delicious! Next time we come back to New York and every time after that we're definitely going back to Patsy's. We were short on time given that we were going to see an early show and we had a wonderful and relaxing dinner... More

First time for us at Patsys tonight.the restaurant has a lovely feel about it, waiters look fab in their uniforms and the menus is extensive with something for everyone. We were there pre-theatre and it was quiet with more waitors than diners however the food was amazing and good value for money.

The place has a good vibe about it. I suggest dining a little later (after the pre theatre crowd has left) because it can be noisy if your on the ground level. Excellent waiters and the food is very good. I love the Italian cheese cake made with ricotta cheese!

This was by far the worst lunch or dinner experience I've had in NYC! Patsy's is a well know institution with a great reputation ... well until now. They have lost there touch with reality of what good service and atmosphere is in modern times as well as food trends. It's wonderful to be old school and stick to traditional... More

The food at PATSY'S is excellent, service, the people and seeing the pictures on the walls from all the famous people that ate there. The food is outstanding, if you want to eat Italian Patsy's is a must. This is a NEW YORK landmark.

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.
