In South African slang, "Tolani" means "too good," and that is exactly what this UWS gem is – an unpretentious spot of which you simply can't get enough. Drawing from the very best flavors, techniques and ingredients from each corner of the world, Tolani Wine Restaurant's menu brings a culinary adventure to your backyard, marrying authenticity with ingenuity.

"Had a groupon which made a great brunch even better but the $20 unlimited pour is a good deal at full price. The vibe inside is cozy and eclectic with dark furnishings and great lighting. Bar seating upstairs and tables down. Standard brunch fare with good portions and friendly service. I'll definitely be returning."

"Brought some guests from out of town here for authentic NYC Italian! Everything was delicious- so great in fact they went back the next day as well! It's definitely a great neighborhood place and the food is always consistent and the service always friendly. It can get crowded so make a reservation!"

"I don't usually get lobster in a steak house but their summer lobster deal was too good to pass up! The lobster was deliciously prepared and presented- cracked and split open. Service was friendly and attentive. It's a tad touristy but that's what you get in that area."

Strip House Midtown at 44th Street brings all the Strip House signatures to a brand new bi-level space for lunch, dinner and private dining. Visit the new NYC location for a classic cocktail at the bar, or a full steakhouse experience. Experience the combination of charred cuts perfectly paired with decadent sides, in a siren red interior where old world glamour meets modern style and sophistication. Named a top steakhouse by Zagat and awarded four stars by Forbes, the namesake cut isn’t the only thing to marvel upon...walls are adorned with original Studio Manasse prints of 1930s burlesque stars.

"Went for restaurant week and this place was fabulous. Great choices on the menu, wonderful service and delicious food. The tuna was divine and the filet was delicious. The signature sundae is a surprising mix of sweet and salty and worth saving room for!."

"We went for restaurant week so maybe we got the B team but..... service was slow to start - it did eventually came up to speed. The soup course was delicious and very nicely presented, nice portion. We all had the pork dish and it was a bit salty but still tasty and again a nice portion- not huge but satisfying. Dessert was actually absurd. I had the watermelon, which constituted a child's size bite of watermelon (bite not slice) and a tablespoon of lemon sorbet. I was by no means still hungy but it was so tiny they may as well have not bothered. That all being said the biggest surprise was $6 for an iced tea- no refills. Really? Really."

Bobby Van's newest restaurant is located on 45th Street between Broadway and 6th Avenue in the heart of Times Square shopping and theatre district. Two floors of dining inside with an outdoor cafe. Perfect for lunch or dinner, and before and after theater dining.

"BVs on 45th has a nice lunch menu and a diverese restaurant week menu for lunch as well. While it is a pet peeve that a steak house upcharges for a steak (petite filet)on the lunch menu- you can get the steak sandwich as part of the regular deal and it's a nice option. The salad is huge and the dessert is huge if not particularly spectacular (chocolate mousse cake- it's good- it's just not mind blowing). Service is quick and attentive. And the outside seating can't be beat for the neighborhood."

Voted "one of the Top 10 best steakhouses in New York City," Nick & Stef's is a masterful blend of ultra-stylish contemporary design and time-honored culinary artistry. Directly adjacent to Madison Square Garden on West 33rd St. at 8th Ave., it's the place to eat before and after concerts and games for succulent dry-aged certified black angus steaks, the freshest seafood and signature side dishes. <br />

"Nick and Stef's is a favorite- it's always excellent and always consistent. The summer lobster deals are a great way to celebrate summer in the city and the steaks are always perfect. Service is excellent. The rib-eye and creamed spinach are some of the best I have ever had- the wine list has some fun splurges as well as budget friendly choices making it the perfect spot for a real celebration or just a nice dinner out. Now that the scaffolding is finally down the ambience is more cheerful as well!"
