"One of the better choices for a meal at Roosevelt Field. It's a chain, good for steaks, a little more upscale than the other choices at the Mall. They do a happy birthday table decoration and a card, which is a very nice touch."

The cuisine is a mix of comfort food, prime steakhouse staples, and seafood dishes with a fine flair. The juxtaposition of old design and modern food add to the ambiance that makes Hendrick’s Tavern a unique dining destination.

"Not anything to run out to. This restaurant is run of the mill, nothing spectacular. I ordered a beef carpaccio which was drowned in balsamic vinegar to the point of choking me. The fish dish I had, off of the menu was plain tasting filet with plain spinach and a little leek. (The leek had a taste!) Our server was very pleasant and the gentlemen kept our water glasses filled. I would go back to try other dishes. Perhaps I just picked the wrong things to eat."

A royal feast awaits you at Re Sette, transporting guests to another era with exquisite design and elegant Southern Mediterranean cuisine. Downstairs, the 1,800-square-foot restaurant offers seating in an intimate dining room, lounge and bar. Guests enjoy a grand entrance, with a vaulted ceiling and long mahogany bar that features an expansive menu of grappa, the favored drink of Italian kings. The designs regal influences are seen throughout and conjure an opulent time: jewel-toned tapestry-covered chairs dimly lit ornate candelabras and deep Naugahyde banquettes against brick red textured walls.

"Needed to eat after theater (on 47 Street) and found ReSette on 45. We had a very friendly waiter who was not on top of us, and even though it was late, he told us to take our time. He did not bother us to get the next course, finish our wine, get out. We ordered appetizers because it was late but specials were still available. The tuna tartar was very good and fresh. It is plated with sauces done very artistically. The Caesar salad was another good choice. Not overdone on dressing, and yet tasty with fresh Romaine. We also had a shrimp, endive salad with a lovely lemon vinaigrette. The ambiance is very relaxing, and makes a special atmosphere."

"Giardinetto is a nice restaurant in an area that has few and far between nice restaurants. People want to please. We had the beef carpaccio that was probably very good, but the taste was overridden with balsamic vinegar. The Caesar salad had a tasty, creamy dressing, and the lettuce was very fresh. The pasta fresco was overcooked, but the sauce and seafood was good. The whole bronzino grilled with herbs was amongst the delectable and freshest we've had."

Set in the sleek W Hotel Times Square setting, Blue Fin oohs and aahs its audience with a prominent raw bar, extensive sushi menu and much more! Unwind at either of Blue Fin's two bars and sip a seasonal cocktail or glass of wine from the 400+ bottle wine list. Up early for a matinee or just on your way to the office? Blue Fin gets the early riser going with smoothies and fresh squeezed juices, in addition to power-packed breakfast offerings featuring farm-fresh ingredients. To create this two-story, 400-seat dining spectacle in the epicenter of the most exciting city in the world, design firm Yabu Pushelberg provided original features as an expansive sparkling wall of highly polished mirror, glowing resin tables, and a floating staircase that leads to live music upstairs.

"When we visit Blue Fin after 10PM, it seems the server takes forever to get to the table. Following this, it takes a long time for the wine to come. Then we sit with at least two glasses of wine before the appetizer comes. Get this gist? Food is good. Portions are not over sized."
