Visited the restaurant after a concert at Jazz at Lincoln Center. We checked a few places to find food after the concert and could not find anything that was open at 11PM in the area we were looking. I ordered the burger and fries. The fries were small cut up and thin which was a new experience for me, but... More

Found this little gem of a place tucked nicely away on a stroll down to Times Square! Not the biggest of menus, however very well balanced with something for everyone. Prices here were some of the cheapest I have seen so far, and the taste of the food was incredible! I thought I would try something a little different, and... More

My wife and are always on the lookout for well prepared, basic fare at moderate prices around the theater district and we ate here last week. I got the burger, she got the chick wrap and both were quite good and both come with a mess of good fries (although I got a side salad which was much better than... More

My wife and daughters and I ate dinner here before seeing an 8pm showing of Wicked. The food was amazing, fresh, and surprisingly economical. The service was excellent. Our waiter was very friendly, and we waited about 5 minutes for our meals from the time we ordered until the food arrived. My daughters and I had the French dip sandwiches... More

Great food - excellent service with a friendly atmosphere. Deserved the tip unlike some other establishments. I would recommend this grill for anyone wanting good food, at a reasonable price with good service. I would visit again.

A bit over the Lincoln Center area, we walked a few blocks down 8th avenue and stumble on Matts. The service was quick and efficient. the chicken BLT wrap was very good. They give you the option of having a salad instead of fries - great for me. The French dip was so-so with flavored but quickly remedied with a... More

Took my two daughters there after a matinee Saturday show. I will say it was not our first choice but everywhere near Broadway was packed. We passed it on our way from parking our car to the theater, so we walked back to get a bite to eat. We were immediately seated. The menu is the perfect size, enough choices... More

During one of our days out around the city my husband and I stopped off here for a bite to eat. It doesn't look much from the outside but it is like a "local pub" from the UK when you step inside. Staff were really welcoming, but then from our visit most Americans have been - think customer service in... More

I'm sometimes a little dubious of 'hole in the wall' places but I have to say, the service and the food here was great. My steak was tender and juicy, as it should be.

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.
