My family and I stayed at W around corner - it's a 2 minute walk. We got a table for 3 (with our 5-year old) immediately and service was great. We ordered gluten- free penne alla vodka with pancetta, the beet salad and a plain pasta for my daughter. The one negative for us was no kids menu and the... More

The service was so slow here, we couldn't get over it. Might want to order 2 drinks at a time! My meal was nothing special as I cannot even remember what I ate that night. I actually do remember the bruschetta and meatball apps being quite good.

We were staying nearby at the Wyndham Midtown 45 and wanted to have dinner without venturing too far. So glad we went here. The service was OK--a bit slow to first approach our table with menus and to take drink orders, but overall efficient. I had the Penne Regate (penne pasta, chicken, broccoli in a garlic sauce) and it was... More

We wanted a quick dinner near our hotel so we got there. Right away service was friendly and fast, so from order to table was a breeze. We had pizza and spaghetti both excellent and in big portions with a very reasonable price tag!

Went there for a business dinner and loved the food and the service was fine. It has a very nice outside seating. Must try the aubergine dishes

Actually ordered 2 dinners to be delivered at The Benjamin Hotel. Food was delicious. Penne Ala Vodka was awesome and the rigatoni was tasty. And the chocolate mousse cake was a hit with the family. Highly recommend.

We had lunch at this place. We were there before the lunchtime crowd. Once seated, the place filled fast. It was very popular and very good. The service was good and the pizzas were excellent. Some of the dishes at other tables looked real good as well.

Located at a corner with outdoor seating in a business area, I expected mediocre food with high prices. Instead we had excellent food at reasonable prices! The pasta was perfectly cooked, salads crisp and fresh, both delicious. Service was lacking. We asked 3 times for the extra anchovies we ordered and never got them, but got charged for them. Of...

Decided to eat here on our last night on our last night in NYC, ate late around 9.30-10pm and the place was still quite busy inside. Have to say the staff that served us were not particularly friendly, there was no real interaction with is when seating us, taking our order or bringing our food. The waitress who looked after...

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.
