"Something different and fun in mid-town. Great place to take kids. Nice selection of meats. The specials are worthwhile to keep costs under control."

"There are lots and lots of steakhouses, Shula's is not a bad choice, and in the Times Square/Theater District area probably the best choice, food-wise. But I wasn't all that thrilled with service--first, two different bottles of wine I ordered were out of stock (and the waiter tried to have me purchase the wine the restaurant was clearly pushing--which was seriously overpriced), but they did at least comp us a glass of Malbec (but not the type of red I had wanted to drink)--then the prix fixe included dessert, but we had to leave for the theater and they were seriously slow about having a piece wrapped to go, so we left."

Our original restaurant in Japan was established and opened its first door in the heart of Roppongi, Tokyo in 1970, as the traditional "Robata-yaki" restaurant. Since then, Inakaya has been loved by substantial numbers of distinguished personalities, comprising of former President of the United States, Hollywood stars, and other celebrities and the epicureans from around the world for more than 30 years. "Robata" is the Japanese term that stands for "around a sunken hearth" and "yaki" means "grilling". Families used to gather around the hearth for dinner, which evolved into "Robata-yaki" style. It is known as a type of traditional cuisine, which features fresh ingredients grilled in proximity of guests' own eyes. Foods are cooked on open-flame, its ancient but healthy grilling method of dropping excess oil has attained its popularity, and has spread throughout Japan. And now it comes to New York!<br />Please note this online reservation is for the Robata counter seating.

"Note, this is a great place for sushi; however, it is a wonderful place for robata (Japanese grilled food on a stick). Note, Open Table reservations are for the bar/counter area, not for table service--and service can be slow, so it loses a star for those factors. But great if you're seeking something different near PABT/Times Square/Theater District."

"Weekday breakfast was what I hoped it would be. I liked that I could get an oatmeal/eggs combo without needed to order each separately. Waiter was a bit frazzled, he had too many tables to properly service all of them. If staying at any of the hotels around M and 21st, this is a good spot to grab a bite."

"I like the S&W chain. It's reliable with good food no matter which location one visits. Unfortunately, the DC branch didn't offer prime rib that night--but the porterhouse for two was terrific. Large wine list--don't be afraid of the house label red, it's on the affordable side and is quite good. Join their dining club and enter the number when making reservations, you get benefits during the meal, not just points afterwards."

The Main Dining Room features a stunning view of the bay from every table. For those who prefer al fresco dining our Inside Out Room is the perfect place for a romantic dinner or get together among friends next to the cozy fireplace. A custom-built wood fired grill and a large wood burning oven serve as the focal points of Kuleto's design for the restaurant.<br /><br />The menu features an inventive combination of traditional and contemporary dishes, showcasing everything from fish to fowl, and specializing in a variety of meats and steaks. Handmade cocktails, domestic and imported beers, and a well-selected wine list complement the menu.

This James Beard Award winning restaurant with a clientele as diverse as San Francisco opened in 1979. A vibrant Parisian-style standing-only copper bar greets you as you enter on Rose Alley. Zuni's menu changes daily with dishes inspired by traditional Italian and French recipes. Nearly all of the produce, meat, and fish served at Zuni is farmed and harvested in a sustainable manner. Even without a reservation, bar tables are available on a first come, first served basis and the full menu is available. The bar also serves traditional cocktails made with top-shelf ingredients; refreshments at its best in an environment of effortless hospitality. Whether you dine early or prefer to dine after theater, Zuni is a welcoming haven. -Judy Rodgers, chef/co-owner -Gilbert Pilgram, co-owner

"I really liked the food here, well prepared, varied menu (and we did not order the renowned chicken given the expected wait time). What we didn't love was the ridiculously long time it took to get each course (even after telling the waiter that we needed to be out in less than 90 minutes and we're talking relatively early on a Sunday evening. The downstairs window seats offer a lovely view, but the adjacent bar does make it a more noisy area, and you're packed in so neighboring tables can't help but hear the conversations."

"That's not a bad thing. But I do miss the ambiance of the old place-this has a more cookie cutter feel. Good, fresh sushi and not cheap, but not horrible prices. Good menu for people who want cooked Japanese offerings as well."
