My daughter and I ate here after a Broadway show and before heading back to our hotel for the night. She's 9, and loves the cheddar biscuits at Red Lobster. Our waiter was great, serving us quickly and with a friendly attitude. He made the experience great... for me, the food was just average. RL has a lot of flavor... More

Whenever we visit the US we always go in a Red Lobster. Great, tasty food and unlike any restaurants we have in the UK. The location of this Red Lobster is right in the heart of Times Square. There is a fantastic offer of a 4 course meal for $21.99 Monday - Thursday - it works out cheaper than a... More

Casual restaurant, always right. The cheese biscuit is amazing. Regular service, noisy, but... The cheese biscuit... Oh, yes, and the lobsters

I was meeting an old college friend who insisted that we go to Red Lobster. I love seafood so I thought I would be a good sport and give it a try. It was a disappointment. Everything that was served had clearly been frozen and the shrimp seemed freezer burnt. An unusual taste. It's mass produced food with limited character.

I had my doubts, especially as this branch of the New England-themed chain is huge and very popular judging by the crowds that kept pouring in throughout the evening. Still we managed to find a table despite not having made a reservation. We took the lift to the fist floor and were shown to a table by an efficient and... More

We dropped into this chain store near Times Square almost by accident. We had some good drinks with pleasant food including some butterflyed prawns and clam chowder. Service was efficient. Price not too bad. Yes it is a franchise but we found it to be pretty good.

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.
