"First, the food was very good (but all be were served were appetizers). We arrived on time at 6:30, told the receptionist we're going to the theater at 8 (90 minutes is usually more than enough for pre-theater dinner). Appetizers, drinks and main dish orders were taken fairly quickly. But then weren't served the appetizers and drinks until 7pm and at 7:45 we still hadn't received the main dishes. As we were in the upstairs back room (which has lovely decor) we couldn't get the attention of any server. Finally, we got worried, asked for the check--and naturally the check and the main dishes arrived at the same time (of course we sent those back, paid and left). I'd give them another chance, when not on the clock because of the decor and food; but if a restaurant offers a pre-theater menu, the assumption is they'll serve everything with sufficient time to get to the play. [Offering me a doggie bag with the main dishes was insulting, not a solution.]"

"Not many worthwhile Japanese restaurants in the area. This is an exception. Fresh, very good quality sushi/sashimi and a large menu to satisfy anyone who's not a raw fish person. Nice selection of sake as well."

"I had the bison short rib. Wonderful, far less fat than beef. The other bison cuts are equally excellent. A very good choice for someone craving meat, but without all the fat of beef."

Korean Restaurant & Bar, BarKogi specializes in Korean Fusion Cuisine & Korean Fried Chicken. Full Service Bar & Lounge with 20 Craft Beers on draft.<br /><br />BarKogi’s enticing menu of Asian fusion fare entertains taste buds with a tantalizing spread of fresh local veggies, juicy cuts of chicken and short rib, fresh seafood, and eclectic cocktails. The restaurant's signature Korean-style fried chicken dances across palates with the wholesome flavor of vegetarian-fed poultry free from hormones, antibiotics, or opinions about whether the egg preceded it. As guests sip specialty soju cocktails or frosty draft beers, they can admire BarKogi’s ultramodern décor, which showcases onyx-black tabletops and pristine white furnishings.

"Large, eclectic menu. Korean specialties done well. Lots of TV screens to watch ballgames so it can function as a place to watch sports without the noise and bustle of a sports bar."

Holsteins is an exciting burger concept from Las Vegas restaurateurs Billy Richardson, and Chef Anthony Meidenbauer of Block 16 Hospitality. This concept was tailor-made for The Cosmopolitan with an emphasis on fresh, natural and organic ingredients. Holsteins brings better burgers and a funky, homegrown attitude to The Strip. The menu features specialty burgers, house-made sausage, riffs on traditional American snacks and appetizers, as well as a wide variety of shakes and sides. All items are custom crafted in-house, creating burgers unlike any other. Put an adult spin on the traditional shake with a “Bamboozled Shake”, unique flavors infused with premium liqueurs and spirits.

"It's comfort food, but jacked up to the next level. Nice touch of spice off-set with other flavors. Went for lunch, the 'blue plate special' is a bargain at the price."

"Well, I'm from Brooklyn and real Brooklyn diners aren't trying to be this 'upscale.' Food is just ok, but portions are large. If a family or tourists are looking for someplace to grab a meal, this is a good choice. For someone wanting 'real' comfort food, it's kind of like Times Square itself, overdone and artificial, but still fun to visit once in a while."

Established in 2010.<br /><br />You could be sure to expect the best when you come to AnTalia, As the owners are a part of the daily operations. Service is being taken care of a manager who owns the restaurant, food is being deliciously prepared by a cook who also owns the restaurant. How can you go wrong?<br /><br /><br />AnTalia Restaurant serves authentic Turkish dishes in the midtown area. The pre-theater crowd loves there Prix-Fixe menu that serves 3 course meals for only 24.95. This lovely restaurant serves its guests in two floors. Second floor is a great way to have a private party or dine quietly.

The latest member of the Heartland Brewery family of restaurants, HB Burger is the only full-service burger-oriented restaurant in the Times Square area. It features comfortable and spacious seating, wrought-iron chandeliers, two bars and a compelling menu. Expect to find prime Angus beef burgers, a sashimi-grade tuna burger, specialty salads, “Must Fry’s” like tatter tots stuffed with bacon and Jack cheese, and homemade sodas on tap.

"Not well advertised compared to it's Heartland siblings, but the burger selection here is first rate. Wonderful juicy burgers, with a choice of meat types (including a very good veggie offering). Personally I think there's no need to splurge for a Kobe burger, but if you want to say you tried one (for a not-ridiculous price), this is the right place."
