Had dinner here to end a perfect evening seeing Steve Cohen chamber magic. A little sad the restaurant is closing for three years. We hope it will reopen after renovations. Excellent prime rib, shrimp cocktail, French onion soup and chicken dish. Not cheap, nostalgic.

It's such a shame that this restaurant is due to close with the refurbishment of the Waldorf. For starters we both had a Waldorf salad- it was beautiful! Very refreshing. My husband and I shared the chateaubriand steak. Best steak of our lives, hand down. Had with creamed spinach and gratin potatoes. So good we're going back tomorrow on our... More

Lovely old world style steakhouse. We enjoyed the restaurant week menu. Service is excellent. The regular menu is quite expensive but if you have an expense account, go for it.

Had the buffet breakfast one morning during our stay (which was quite expansive) only because as HH members we got a 25% discount. Everything I tried was very good save the scrambled eggs. Don't think the value is there even with the savings as one could never eat enough to justify the price. Also had drinks at the bar which... More

Food good. Prices astronomical. Excellent for millionaires. Middle class folks go elsewhere. Service good but call a cardiac specialist before you open the bill.

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.
