Had a meal, food was very average and expensive. Be careful of the extras being offered. We were offered calamari only to find out it was $16 on the bill and it was shocking!! Never again lesson learnt....

After a 1 hour's wait, was left fairly disappointed in the quality and atmosphere of the place. Considering it was in the heart of Times Square, felt like I could have been anywhere. Food and service was nothing to rave about and feel like this was a wasted choice to have spent any time here!

Great experience, joined wait list online (brilliant feature especially for Times Square) as we were sightseeing all day and didn't want to sit and queue. We were seated within moments of reaching top floor and were served by Michael W who was fantastic 10/10, food was awesome too!

I could eat here my whole visit just for the view. The food and service is always good. There is a wait sometimes. We went to their website and got on the waiting list. It will let you know how long your wait is and you have time to site see without having to wait in line. We have always... More

Had dinner here the food was okay. The service was very fast as if the wanted the table. Chose a starter and main meal. Because you ordered a starter they gave you a free salad. Before we finished the salad the starter arrived. Before we finished the starter the main meal arrived. No time between course to digest each course.... More

You can always rely on a good salad with any entree chosen here whether its seafood or meat. Glad its still here in this really busy location.

Ate here in New York and it was one of the restaurants I was especially looking forward to. We were told there was a 45 minute wait (I suggest booking ahead!) which was fine we just sat at the bar. However, a high gratuity was already ordered on our tab which we weren't aware of when told of the amount... More

So we went here our last day in NYC and all I can say is that this OG is consistant with the rest of the franchise BUT this was the most unkept of any Garden I've visited in over 10 states. There was white streaks on the walls, the table had a strange film by the bottles of salt and... More

Service was great and made up for the OK lunch. Knew it was not going to be gourmet however the food really is pretty bland. Had a lunch size pasta which would not have fed a 5 year old. Thankfully the salad was fairly large. Good place to take kids but really pretty bland.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
