I will return and would only recommend this... More

We went to Sofrito for my friend's birthday Celebration. The view of the Hudson River is beautiful. There was nice music and some people were even dancing. The food was average, nothing stood out and we had to send the sangria back because it watery. The parking was $15. I am not sure if I would return again in the... More

I went to the new location at 679 Riverside Dr, New York, NY 10031 for drinks and appetizers. The place is big and really nice compared to the old spot on 57th Street which was narrow and small. However, we ordered a bottle of wine and as usual the waitress gave us a taste of the wine once she opened... More

This place has an awesome view, good drinks and nice Latin cuisine. When they have a DJ playing live music do not sit outside near the speakers. They blast it abnormally loud and you can't hear the person sitting next to you. They turned it down after our first request but pumped it back up. We talked to 3 waiters... More

Went here for our anniversary, the food was delicious and the portions were huge. I had the grilled chicken and it was tasty. The menu caters to Puerto Rican cuisine so you'll find a nice array of selections. The portions are massive, I had to bring some back home with me. The atmosphere is nice and the staff was friendly.... More

After a receiving a high recommendation on this resatuarant at Riverbank State Park I decided to gather a few friends together for an impromptu birthday dinner. I tried reserving a table for 8 people online and recieved an email attachment for a prefixed menu and a request for credit card information instead. Since this was a simple dinner I emailed...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
