Located in the heart of the theatre district in Time Square, Palm Restaurant has become a hotspot for theatre-goers, celebrities, tourists and Palm Restaurant regulars alike. Loyal Palm Customers include Andy Cohen, Don King, Kathy Lee and Hoda and the cast of Book of Mormon to name a few.

"The Times Square is a sea of people, lights, and madness. But the Palm Restaurant is a familiar and welcome oasis. The interior is what you'd find in other Palm Restaurants, the food has the same great quality and taste, and the service is ... New York style. A little more rushed and tough than elsewhere but equally efficient and helpful. Go there and enjoy what you're used to in other cities. It's all good."

"Tucked into a nice room on busy 8th Ave is this "neighborhood" feel Italian restaurant with good food and great prices. We booked this place for a quick dinner before a Broadway show and were very pleased with the quality of food and service. Don't expect table cloths and fancy dishes. This is good "down home" Italian food that will leave you satisfied."

Located in New York's landmark Helmsley Building, Bobby Van's Steakhouse has been serving the best porterhouse in town for the last eleven years. Upon entering, one is greeted with the sight of a credenza groaning under the weight of large bottles of wine. A bar full of regular customers is on the left and looking into the one-hundred seat dining room, one sees the thirty foot high ceiling and windows overlooking Park Avenue. To complement our Prime Aged Steaks our Sommelier has created an award winning wine list. Whether you're looking for a big Cabernet, a Pinot Noir or something in between our comprehensive list is sure to please. "

"Everything was just "eh" here. Service was spotty with multiple waiters confused about whether we had already ordered drinks or food. Food was just OK. Very small table. There are so many better places to go in NYC that you can skip this one and not be missing anything."

Waterbar is a seafood-centric restaurant located on the waterfront with spectacular panoramic views of the bay and city skyline, exceptional design, and a menu of the freshest sustainable fish and seafood. Featuring stunning outdoor (dog-friendly) dining on the waterfront patio, a relaxed atmosphere and floor-to-ceiling circular aquariums filled with an eye-catching array of fish and marine life from the Pacific Ocean Waterbar is not to be missed.
