"My husband and I dined there this past Saturday night. I had the salmon special and it was delicious, however, it was a tad on the drier side for my preference but still delicious! My husband had the Mariscada with the blackened linguini. It was phenomenal and I plan to go back there soon so I can order that. The restaurant is a BYO and they offer sangria (made with your wine) so bring a bottle and have them make you a red or white sangria. We had the red and really liked it. If we knew this in advance we probably would have brought a cheaper bottle. The restaurant offers a great atmosphere. The ladies room was very clean and tastefully done. The manger Steven was very kind and welcoming. We definitely recommend!"

A Diamond in the Diamond district, a home away from home in Times Square NY, a New Show in the Theater District... A delicious Cuisine with the experience of a staff working together for more than 10 years, to add care and gusto to hospitality. <br /><br />

"We dined at Ceci's on a Saturday before a broadway show. Our reservation was at noon and we were the only party there until about 1:00. We had a party of 6. Our wait staff was attentive and the food was very good. They have delicious bread! We ordered pizzas and veggie sandwich. All were very good. We would dine there again! I rated the noise level as quiet but I think it would be different if more people were dining in the restaurant."

Part of what makes a dining experience special is ambiance. Now is the perfect time to enjoy an amazing meal in our quaint and charming home-like atmosphere. It’s the perfect setting to enjoy a real gourmet Italian meal. Outside seating is on a first-come first-serve basis.<br /><br />

"I have been here often and love it! On this particular occasion I made lunch reservations for 5 of us for a business lunch. We ate outdoors. It was a beautiful day. The service was great. We all had salads. They were all delicious. I noticed the waiter doing a lot to accommodate a large group who wanted the umbrellas re-arranged. The service there is top notch!"

"I have dined here several times before. It never disappoints! I had the grilled pear and spinach salad. It was a special. I will go again soon in hopes they have it again! I love the Tuscan Stew on the regular menu and the beet salad."

Lidia Bastianich & her son Joe's Theater District mainstay. Best known for the $22.95 pasta tasting menu & the great selections on the $25 Italian wine list. Loved by locals & out of towners alike, Becco has been serving consistently delicious regional Italian cuisine since 1993. Located on the famed Restaurant Row in NYC's Theatre District, Becco is open for lunch & dinner seven days a week. Enjoy signature dishes, like the Osso Bucco, as well as the bounty of fresh seasonal preparations. The Reserve Wine list has many of Italy's best known producers, as well as some more eclectic wine makers. A knowledgeable staffer will be on hand to help you make a great choice. With 18 years on restaurant row, great food & great service help make Becco the right choice time & time again.

"My two daughters and I dined at Becco for lunch Saturday before a 2:00 show. We each had the pasta special. It was fantastic. We highly recommend it and will go back again."

"We got reservations for 5 Mother's Day evening. I thought we'd have to dine indoors because they don't take reservations for outdoor tables. We were lucky and got an outdoor table (the weather was great that day). Calamari was great. Beet salad with goat cheese was also very good. Everyone had a good meal. The only, less then great, dish was my salmon. I thought it was grilled or seared, it seemed to have a coating on it and was greasy. I would have preferred a "healthier" grilled salmon but I may not have read the item well and missed something. We will definitely go back and recommend the restaurant. We also want to try their sister restaurant next door, Havana Koi."

Xanh, with its cutting edge contemporary design and a more diverse, innovative menu, is tailor made for entertaining and dining. Clearly not your typical Vietnamese Restaurant, XANH is a 21st century interpretation of that beloved culinary tradition retaining the essential elements of the classic but updating it for a new generation

"I went here for the first time with a large party for the lunch buffet. They had an extensive selection of food to pick from and it was all excellent. Very reasonably priced and the service was great. I would recommend it!"

Welcome to New Jersey's Legendary Steak House<br /><br />Rod's Steak & Seafood Grille, an area landmark and winner of New Jersey Monthly's 'Best Steakhouse' award, offers lunch and dinner daily as well as the finest Sunday Brunch in New Jersey.<br /><br />The restaurant's new design, rich wood paneling and highly polished brass, lends a classic elegance to the sophisticated atmosphere.

"Wow, this place did not disappoint. We have heard so much about it, we went for our wedding anniversary dinner. We had a very nice table for two upstairs. The food and wine was impeccable. It was restaurant week and the only criticism I had it that I KNEW it was restaurant week and had to ask for the menu. The price fixe menu was not offered with the other menu. I ordered the tenderloin off the price fixe menu and my husband ordered his prime porterhouse off the regular menu. The food was very good. It was a busy Friday night, tables were full. The service was a little slower than we would have liked but our waiter was very nice. We would most likely go back again and on another special occasion. The prices are $$$$."

The Porterhouse Brewing Co. at Fraunces Tavern, is located in one of the city's most historic landmarks in the downtown Financial District. The Porterhouse offers a large range of small batch and specialty beers, serving traditional American food with a strong Irish influence. Fraunces Tavern has been a part of our city's history since 1762. Now under new management, you can expect a modern experience in an authentic historical space while enjoying great food, drinks, and atmosphere.

"Went to the Tavern for a business lunch. I arrived early and waited for the rest of my party for the bar in the tavern. The bartender was very friendly and attentive. He shared a lot of facts about the history of the place. The lunch options were plentiful and everyone in my group enjoyed themselves. I would recommend the restaurant and will definitely go back there again."

The whole experience is paramount, when you dine at Il Capriccio, you feel right at home. Fresh flowers, gentile romantic lighting, chairs you can sink into and live pianists make for an unforgettable dining experience. Knowledgeable and attentive staff further compliment the impeccably prepared fair and carefully selected wines from all over the world. Enjoy Il Capriccio's most recent addition, (weather permitting) the Tuscan inspired courtyard thatseats up to 35 guests and makes for a truly "Al Fresco" dining experience. <br />The dress code is Elegant Casual, as jackets are preferred for gentlemen but not required. <br /><br />

"this was our first visit to this restaurant. I was disappointed we were put in the far back room where two large groups were placed. There were only two smaller tables and my husband and I were one of them. That being said, the server did a good job at accommodating everyone. We ordered seafood salad and beet salad to start. Both were delicious. For our main meal we had tuna and octopus. Both were also very good. We would go back here again."
