The diner was right close to our hotel and we looked at the menu and saw loads of things that we liked. We did not have reservations for dinner but as it was 6pm we were quickly allocated a table. Server was friendly and helpful. That's went things went a bit wrong. There was nothing wrong with the soup as... More

Went here twice whilst visiting NYC. First time we sat in the bar as restaurant was 20mins wait. Stafff really friendly and took our order promptly. 5 of the 6 meals arrived quick enough but had to remind them twice about the 6th meal, not so great. But apart from this little hiccup, the food was very good, typical American... More

Was looking forward to the burger after the picture and description looked so appetizing but it was far from the picture showed, served with cold fries, and slow service, so very disappointed needs to do better.

Food was so-so. Service was not the best. One of the servers accidentally dropped one of the chips that we ordered but acted as if it was nothing. She said something like "Oh, it's okay, it's only 1 piece." Didn't apologize, didn't even bother to offer a replacement. We were given the wrong food as well. Food portions were big.... More

We went to Applebee's for breakfast with a large group of friends, the staff seated us promptly. The breakfast (pancakes) was great and the service was good. It's great for a traditional American breakfast

We were looking for a traditional NYC breakfast - Applebee's was fine but quality suffered a little under the weight of quantity. It was a busy morning so the staff were trying to serve everybody - this meant service was a little slow and our server did not register our food & drink requests fully. Had to search for someone...

Although it was quite crowded. The atmosphere of this establishment is inviting. The service was good and the restaurant is clean and stylish. I would return again

If you are about to visit Applebees for breakfast be sure to be there when they open and not a quarter later. For some strange reason they can not handle many people at once which results in delayed food and when it finally arrives it is cold! I would not recommend it.

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.
