It's not very big restaurant, but cozy, with perfect food. It's in the center, not far away from Empire State Building. And prices are very regular. Not expensive, but food is very delicious. I was in love with their burgers and French fries! You should try at least once it there! Best French fries ever! And their pepper-sauce is amazing!... More

We were staying at the Dumont just a short walk up the road and this place looked welcoming with great menu choice. You can sit both inside and out on the sidewalk. The staff give a warm welcome and drinks come quickly whilst you are deciding what to eat. The menu is quite varied and everything is cooked fresh so... More

Good atmosphere in a busy part of the city. Menu is ok we had tuna salad and a seared tuna with fries, both very nice and a generous portion of salad as ever. Not really a destination venue but great if you are in the area.

We went to Cinema Cafe for lunch - they had a really good lunch time menu. I had the fish tacos which were amazing. There was a good choice on the menu. The waiter we had was really friendly as well. I would recommend if you are in the area!

We stumbled upon this little open-air patio gem while in the neighborhood on vacation. The waitstaff were really friendly and awesome. The lychee martinis and Mac n cheese were delicious. We loved it and would love to make it back sometime.

Visited on our first night in New York as it was next to our hotel who use it for room service & recommended it. I've given it 2 stars because my daughter's vegetarian meal wasn't great but it was okay. My husband & I had burgers which weren't - quite tasteless & greasy. We waited nearly half an hour for...

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.
