We were looking for something near to the hotel and stumbled upon Olive Garden. The size of the portions were huge! The food was lovely and plenty of options. We were offered wine when we sat down and tried the sparkling blend which was beautiful, then we headed for the cocktails! All in all a nice place for you to... More

My husband and i were visiting New York from Florida and had just seen "A Bronx Tale" with a friend at one of the theaters. When the show was over, we went across the street to have an early dinner at The Olive Garden. By the time we left, there must have been at least 100 people waiting to be... More

Pleasantly surprised at the price of the food considering the location. $20 for a large pasta dish, plus salad and bread to start that was complimentary. Staff all so lovely and food was quick. Definitely recommended for anyone doing NYC on a budget!

Can't go wrong with the Olive Garden, all you can eat soup and salad. It doesn't break the bank and you have a great selection of soups. Its not a 5 star restaurant but the food is good.

Liked the location and the design itself. Nice windowed eating area downstairs or you could take the escalator up stairs to a larger dining area. We ate downstairs were it seemed to be a bit quieter and we had a good view of the streets outside. Food was average Olive Garden and we laughed at how it seemed the advertised... More

It's definitely not the best restaurant in the City or the most fancy or elaborated food, but it's for sure one of the best options to have a decent meal in TS!!! Even if the place is always crowded, there's always a chance to get a table within a reasonable waiting time and you can enjoy a drink in the... More

New discovery for us, I know the name, but went for the first time. Directly in Times Square, we really enjoy our dinner at this restaurant.

Loved the stuffed mushrooms. Could eat those all day. Our food was very good. The prices were okay. Expect a $65-70 bill easily. The staff were pleasant and the atmosphere was nice.

I generally love Olive Garden but was surprised to experience that everything at this particular location is more expensive than any of the other restaurant locations. Service was still good for being extremely busy and food was still ok. Drinks though, amazing! I'd definitely recommend another location for a more overall enjoyable experience :)

Thank Rossina R

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.
