I stopped here after dinner as it was right across the street from my hotel. I was in town for business and traveling by myself so I sat at the bar. It wasn't too crowded so I was able to have a nice conversation with the bartender. He served me 2 drinks and some calamari (dinner didn't fill me...). It... More

I went for lunch and got the chicken quesadilla. I would not recommend it. The flavor was lacking. The waiter was nice and there wasn't hardly anybody there at lunch, so service was fine.

Chose this venue last minute as it was close to our hotel. If you like a vibrant sports bar vibe, then this will suit. We were seated upstairs (not sure why), but by the end we wish we'd been seated downstairs, as it was quieter. We had sliders and loved every bite of them. Has a selection of craft beers... More

We were staying opposite in the Residence Marriott and popped in for a couple of drinks and some snacks. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. The beers were great and the food (we ordered calamari and chicken wings) was just the right thing to accompany drinks (the blue cheese sauce was great). Recommended, highly.

We had a great plate of nachos and some other typical bar food. all good and they had a nice selection of beers. The bloody mary was good and spicy, but a little small. However, since it was included with the brunch i'm not complaining at all.

First night in New York and there is a decent pub right opposite our hotel. My wife fancied a burger and I fancied a beer. We got lucky and got taken straight to a table. Beer !! Wow !! The IPA was fantastic. And the medium rare burger with added blue cheese ........fantastic. A couple more beers had to be... More

We were going to a show on 47th and 2 members of our party were going to a show on 57th, so we picked the Three Monkeys because it was between the 2 locations. Staff was very nice and we had small plates which we enjoyed along with some craft beer.

We ate here after seeing Hamilton. It was right next to the Ameritania, where we stayed. First of all, the drinks were TO DIE FOR. Jonny, from Scotland, made us hot apple cider with fireball. It was the best drink I've ever had. He said they made it right in the kitchen. Our food was also fantastic. The price for... More

We stumbled across the three monkeys while looking for somewhere else. Very reasonably priced compered to the majority of other paces in and around Times Square/broadway. We ordered the nachos they were very tasty and large portions. They also have a really good selection of bottled beers. Staff are very friendly and welcoming.

Love coming here, as it's across the street from my preferred hotel, the Marriott Courtyard. I haven't experimented much with their menu, but the quesadilla and Cubano sandwich are both very good. My preference is to come here later in the evening to unwind after a long day, and I usually head to the upstairs bar, as it seems a... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
