"Like many others, we have been trying to get to Gato since it opened. The front room is dominated by an enormous bar that surrounds almost all of the front room. And the restaurant is dark, very dark. The waiter asked if we had eaten there before and when we said no he explained it to us --and he rather oversold what should be ordered). He was helpful with suggestions, although we had already made our choices. Between the appetizer and the main course, over an hour elapsed. (What was that about?) A woman in management came by several times to say the food was coming which it eventually did. She made an adjustment on the check, not necessary but gracious. The food is good: we'll return-- if we can get a reservation."

Experience the new db bistro moderne! Chef Daniel Boulud's contemporary French bistro has undergone a complete renovation. With the addition of a handsome new cocktail bar, and a newly-crafted menu db bistro serves updated bistro classics with a modern twist and market-driven French-American cuisine. <br /> <br />Located one block East of Times Square, db bistro is the perfect spot for pre- and post-theater dining, a Midtown business lunch or breakfast 'L'Express' of cappuccino and viennoisserie at the bar. A $48 pre-theater prix-fixe dinner menu is available in addition to a full a la care menu. The Lunch Prix Fixe menu will have you back to your desk of off to a matinee quickly and affordably.<br /><br />DB is happy to host large parties and private events from 14-165 guests.

"Shortly after DB remodeled, we ate there and were disappointed; this time we had a much better experience. I had asked not to be seated in the walkthrough as we were before. Although an attempt was made to seat us there this time, we asked for another table and received one. The service was a definite improvement: efficient and available when needed. The food is good, not great, but certainly adequate. The many suits both male and female who walk the room constantly seem to serve no purpose--except to be obvious. I'm sure when we are in the neighborhood we will dine at DB again."

This classic French American Bistro has been a landmark in Tribeca since 1980. Friendly service with great food!

"A perfect restaurant to recover from a day of moving! A welcomed cocktail began the evening. I was interested in the daily special oysters and the mussels. The advice I asked for from the waiter was spot-on and in fact I have ordered them again-=though they were not as good as they were this night. A special soup and the tuna burger always cooked as ordered by my companion completed a lovely meal."

Opened by Jimmy Bradley in October 2001, this Tribeca favorite is a restaurant remarkably in tune with its neighborhood and the city at large. Featuring seasonal contemporary American cuisine from Chef Bradley and Executive Chef Ari Bokovza, and sincere hospitality in a handsome and casually elegant setting, The Harrison instantly makes you feel like you’ve come home. The restaurant also boasts a private dining room housed in its award-winning wine cellar, and outdoor café with Hudson River views and a bar that begs to be dined at for a less formal meal. Since April 2011, Harrison diners have been enjoying the cool, casual vibe of The Harrison at lunchtime. Lunch at The Harrison is suited for business meetings, a quick bite, and special occasions alike. Whether it’s for lunch, dinner or a special event, The Harrison offers rustic, soulful fare, continuing owner Jimmy Bradley’s vision of bold, seasonally inspired cooking with sincere hospitality.

"We haven't been to the Harrison in a while and it was pleasant to be back. When we arrived, fairly early, it was quiet, but by the time we left, that could no longer be said. We began with sharing the grilled octopus, not to be missed. Our main courses were fish, well cooked and nicely plated. With reasonable expectations, the Harrison will not disappoint."

"On a miserably windy, rainy night, the Odeon was just the place to seek refuge. Drinks as always are good and so is the food though I have written before and write again that the entire menu needs an update. The few specials of the day, listed, described and with prices, are a choice from the limited main menu, but inadequate for those of us who are now bored with the food. I understand not tweaking a winner, but still...."

We are located in the Woolworth Building directly across from City Hall and two blocks from Ground Zero. We are a local favorite for City Hall people, lawyers, and the developing Art and technology crowd in the building and the surrounding area. Despite our large size, people tell us they find the place warm and cozy! We also have Private Dinning!

"Lunch time at the Woolworth Kitchen is generally busy. The menu has something for everyone and I have never been disappointed, though I have never had unreasonable expectations. The food is nicely presented and is reasonably priced. For the majority of business people who eat there, it is no doubt fine."

"I don't know why it has taken us years to get to Mont Blanc, one of the few theater district restaurants that still seems to be a mom & pop operation. A gracious woman welcomed us; I would guess she is the owner. The waiter was helpful with a menu whose food we are not familiar with. The food was tasty and generous. We will return."

"Every once in a while we return to Red Eye Grill, a large, flashy restaurant which is someone's idea of what a New York restaurant (not an elegant one) should be. The host station was manned by a suit who without his glasses could not find our reservation; fortunately he was saved by an elegant young woman whose grace made up for his myopia. Everything on the menu always reads as wonderful, but the food, no matter what is ordered, is surprisingly ordinary tasting. The prices would be easier to accept if the food were better. No doubt we will return but not for some time."

Opened in 1983 by Theatre District restaurateur Joe Allen, Orso serves regional Italian cuisine in an intimate, trattoria-inspired setting. Out-of-towners, locals and Broadway regulars can all be spotted enjoying Orso's outstanding preparations of classics like rigatoni Bolognese and sautéed calf's liver with grilled onions and sage. In addition to these standbys, Orso also offers smaller plates, antipasti, thin crust pizzas and half orders of pasta, which are perfectly suited for lunch and late evening dining.

"Our dinner at Orso this time was rather anxious, as we made a 5:30 reservation for a 7:30 curtain--and arrived at 6:00. The host and the waitstaff were super about getting us out on time, a greatly appreciated effort on their part. The food--soup, Treviso salad, liver, chicken and pasta--was good, as usual. A restaurant that never disappoints."

Provencal cuisine in an intimate, cozy setting. A zinc bar, banquettes, flowers, and an attentive staff ensure your comfort and satisfaction. Seasonal ingredients and simplicity of preparation distinguish our food.

"When we don't go to Le Gigot with some frequency, we miss it--and our last evening there is a good reminder of why. What some call cramped we call cozy and we never have to shout in order to speak: so civilized. Oysters, calamari, a seafood salad main course special and hanger steak (all just the right sized portions) were complemented by a Cote de Rhone. Everything was excellent with the exception of the wine which was good enough but began to flatten too soon after being opened. Service as always, friendly yet professional. Without a reservation most are turned away because the restaurant books up."
