Our flagship location opened its doors on First Avenue in 1984. From the moment you arrive, old world charm permeates your dining experience through authentic Mexican colors and rustic folk art. Traditional amate gods greet you at the front entrance and brightly colored papel picado hangs from the ceiling. Corn tortillas are made on site and an exposition grill further seduces your senses. With its warm ambiance and outstanding cuisine, this Rosa Mexicano location has remained a perennial New York favorite for over 25 years.

"Took a large group here for a work event (some were visiting from out of town) and everything was handled well from the service to the quality of the food with no complaints or issues. This is a great place for events like this based on the variety of menu items and the fact you can count of them to get things right. Overall, quite pleased and will continue to go back either on my own or for work events."

There's beef, and then there's Kobe beef, which is served up by 212 Steakhouse. Head to this chic Midtown East eatery for an unrivaled dining experience featuring authentic Japanese Kobe beef or seafood, complete with fresh salads and delicious sides, fabulous desserts complimented with an extensive wine list from all around the world for affordable prices.

"The 3rd time is supposed to be a charm but not here. Each time we've dined here there has been a service issue and it has gotten progressively worse. At least the Kobe beef is done right. It takes forever just to get water and menus after being seated and even longer to get drink orders. They dropped off a plate with vinegar and oil for the bread, except they forgot the bread. Generally, I have to flag them down to order something and follow up with a reminder that I ordered something. Once you order the food you wait forever to get it and then something is wrong. This time, the wrong side was brought out and I was done eating for a good 15 minutes before they brought out the correct one (mushrooms which were bland by the way-devoid of any flavor or seasoning). At least I wasn't charged for it after making a comment about being done with my meal already. We ordered the Arugula salad as an appetizer and it took about 30 mins to come out to the table. For dessert we ordered the Creme Brulee and Chocolate Souflee along with tea and another beer. After getting the dessers (probably 15 mins) they forgot the beverages again so we had to start without the beverages. Not sure if it is an understaffing or competency issue but there is no excuse for this poor of service at these prices. Maybe they are deliberately slow to make the place appear busy. A dinner for 2 shouldn't take 2.5 hours. A real shame since I enjoy the Kobe beef."

This world renowned prime steakhouse is conveniently located adjacent to the King of Prussia Mall at the corner of Mall Boulevard & North Gulph Road. Known for serving only the finest USDA prime beef & the highest quality seafood, Ruth's Chris never fails to please! <br /><br />

"Was in town from NYC for a corporate training and stopped by here for Dinner. Always a solid choice since you can never go wrong at Ruth's Chris. The Cowboy Ribeye isn't cheap, but was cooked to perfection and delicious. I still felt full the next day. The Sauteed Mushrooms are a good side dish as they are large cut in half, not slivers or little pieces like at other places. The Banana Cream Pie was the perfect way to end the meal. Every aspect of the meal was absolutely delicious and Brett provided excellent attentive service without rushing us or being obtrusive."

In the early eighties, Filiberto and Genoveva Arias came to America with a dream. Arriving from Putla, Oaxaca, Filiberto obtained a position in a local restaurant and Genoveva worked as a seamstress in a nearby factory. To make ends meet, Filiberto would cook “crispies” and sell them to the factory workers at lunchtime. From these humble beginnings, Charrito’s Restaurant was established on July 19, 1992, in Union City, New Jersey, offering a cuisine that is primarily inspired by many traditional favorites from Oaxaca. Charrito’s also offers a wide variety of rich plates native to Mexico’s adjoining 31 states. Although, its menu and its appearance has often changed in the past decade, the quality of Charrito’s cuisine and our dedication to providing an authentic Mexican dining experience remains the same.

"The good: Food is excellent Mexican cuisine and the portions are huge. We should have paid attention to other diners that were sharing entrees and just ordered one. The view of Manhattan is spectacular.
The bad: Service was pretty much non-existent after we were seated. We sat around for awhile before flagging someone down and asking for chips and guacamole and then placed our dinner order so as to not wait another 20-30 mins. About a minute after getting our food the server checked to make sure everything was fine but then vanished and again I had to reach out to order another beer well into the meal. I've never heard of valet parking being "full". Luckily, I found a spot practically across the street which begs the question why they couldn't have parked the car but at least I saved on the valet expense. Also, I found the chairs very uncomfortable.
I would only recommend this place after pointing out the service/parking issues since there are tons of other options available that I don't need to leave the city and pay a bunch of tolls for. A shame since the food was so good."
