We visited The Counter on our first night in NY when we headed to Times Square to enjoy the buzz and were looking for somewhere handy to eat. The Restaurant was very busy but we were quickly found a table. We both opted for the burgers which were very good but probably could have been a bit warmer. There was... More

This was a wonderful eating experience after spending the day sight seeing. It was fun to go through their order form and build your own burger and choosing your sides to go with it. The hostess and waitress was both friendly and courteous. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was fun but very busy.

A very pleasent surprise! Great atmosphere, great service. You select the size of burger (and YAY they have a vegan burger), type of roll and toppings. The topping selection is amazing! Organic greens. Yum. The fries were crispy and hot. I will be going back.

Found The Counter walking by, stopped to read the menu in the window and was presented with a coupon for "free" french fries. Service was prompt, food was very high quality, and the choices are plentiful.

We were looking for something that was close to the Sondheim theater 🎭 and would be pretty quick and not super expensive (remember this is Times Square). My husband and I both had turkey burgers and enjoyed them. We were handed a coupon for fries when we walked up to the door and they were very good - shoe string... More

The Burger was tasty and the service couldn't have been better. The surprise I got days later... they charged me twice for a single burger and I realised when I checked my credit card... $50 for a burger and some fries...

The self built burger had been the most delicious ever according to my partner. I had a vegetarian burger that was not too good and very difficult to eat, falling apart and bits all over the plate. Had the fresh limonade which was not fresh but made with syrup... Too expensive for what it offered compared to other places similar... More

The food and service here are very good. If you're in the mood for a good burger, this is a great choice! Always busy, but I enjoy sitting at the bar and we've normally been able to find a seat there.

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.
