The waiting system appeared very unorganized. Once seated we waited for a very long time for just appetizers. It was super crowded and maybe understaffed. Prices were reasonable.

We went there about 8:30 pm on a Saturday night. They said 30 minutes to be seated. During the course of waiting one hour, we heard the greeters gossip non-stop about some malfunction in the kitchen and they were not allowed to seat anyone- but they weren't going to tell the whole story to anyone waiting. Interesting approach. I get... More

We stopped in on ST. Patrick's Day, needing a bite to eat before a show. It was busy, but not packed. Service was OK, food was acceptable. Seated right next to the kitchen, which was not great. But considering the options, it wasn't that bad.

This restaurant is located in the fantastic Times Square region, enjoyed our Fajitas so much the first time we went back for a second time even though we were only in NYC four days :-) We had the Steak Quesadillas the 2nd visit and there were just as nice, so would recommend either. Will definitely visit Chevy's again when we... More

First, we were promptly seated. Sat there 15 mins & got the attention of the hostess who was seating another table. I asked who our server was. It was one guy who had around 9 tables in this area & saw him numerous times walking around but never acknowledged our table. He finally came around & took our order. He... More

It's s chain restaurant, okay, so expectations are low. That said it took 35 minutes to get food order when it wasn't busy (not the first time this has happened) and the bill was over $50 for four enchiladas and beans and rice. Two people, average food at best and so over priced if you eat here you are lost... More

Had breakfast at Chevy's Fresh Mex this morning. Hostess was pretty rude in getting us to our table. Waiter was courteous and efficient. Food was a different breakfast eating experience.

Went to Chevys for breakfast one morning during our recent trip to New York. The breakfast menu looked great and the staff were very welcoming. We both ordered orange juice and I ordered the ABC omelette which was delicious. My husband ordered the Full Pinata breakfast which was disappointing as it was supposed to come with pancakes. Instead my husband... More

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.
