Delicious meals. The house salad is amazing. The atmosphere is friendly and authentic. We were very fortunate, we did not have a reservation and they were totally booked. They made accommodations for us anyway and we sat next to a lovely couple that had great NYC tips for us.

Patsy's has all the Italian favorites on their menu and they are EXCELLANT. The restaurant is located in one of the most accessible areas of Manhattan, a short walk or Uber/taxi ride from most of the City. Not only will you enjoy their food, but the restaurant has the ambience of a fine Italian restaurant. Great for family dining and... More

We attended this restaurant while visiting New York. It is a short walk from Times Square. The calamari appetizer was very good. There were four in our party and we all ordered various items from the menu. We were all pleased with our meals.

I made reservations months in advance anticipating a delicious meal based on the all the prior reviews I read. However, what my family experienced fell short of even great. It was fine, not terrible, but not fabulous either. I would say it was on par to an Olive Garden. First off, the bread that was brought out was stale and... More

I really hate to do this, but I feel obligated to tell the truth. As of last summer this restaurant was one of my favorite Italian restaurants. In my last review I almost considered one of the best. This has all changed as of my last visit of the place this spring. It restaurant experienced a large decline in the... More

A totally New York Italian restaurant that has all the traditional dishes. Waiters attentive, drinks generous and a fun time.

Family, Food and Fellowship were still alive and well this Easter at Patsy's. In NYC's ever changing, glass and steel over commercialized canyons, it was comforting for my wife and I to find a familiar City landmark that is still going strong even after well over 70 years of continuous operation. And no wonder,three and soon to be four generations... More

My family and I, 9 in all, had an early dinner here on Saturday after my daughters recital at Carnegie Hall. I was looking for someplace close and with good ratings. I found the listing on trip advisor and took a chance. From the host to the bartender to our waiter, the service was impeccable. The food was absolutely outstanding.... More

Patsy's is our favorite stop on visits to NYC. The ambiance and the service is top notch. And the red sauce...! The calamari was perfect. Get the gnocchi, ravioli, chicken piccata. It is all delicious. The owner, Sal, has to be one of the most sincere people I have ever met in a restaurant. When you see the same staff... More

Very nice italian food nearby Times Square. It did not look at much from the outside, but a spacious nice room is inside. The food is very good and in the italian way (which means they do not serve pizza). The disses are big and meant for 2-3 persons. A bit noisy but pleasant serving. I can fully recommend this...

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.
