forty2West Italian Bar & Chophouse (fka AJ Maxwell's Steakhouse)
Discovered new tastesI liked the relaxed feel of this restaurant - lighting was not too bright therefore allowing you to feel as though you're alone in the restaurant despite other customers - gives you a sense of privacy amongst others; can actually enterain a conversation without having to shout. Tried their burrata as an appetizer and they serve a cool new twist on caesar salar ... grilled! Excellent! They had an Ivory Salmon dish on the menu; outstandingly prepared, much more delicate taste than the regular pink salmon.
Overall great dining experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMfun placemet up with friends from out of town place was packed had a fun nite food was so good loved it5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI guess I'm now a regular! CameI guess I'm now a regular!
Came by again after work and had a few drinks at the bar.
I'm starting to recognize people. Guess that's a good thing.
The weather's getting nice and they had the big windows open.
I had a great meal at one of the window tables.
Having fun now experimenting with different menus items.
I hear the Chef like to change the menu.
The Veal Chop was awesome. I was tempted to start chomping on the bone.
The bar was happening and they had some dollar oysters at happy hour.
I recommend this place. It's going to be the next hot spot...mark my words.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI went back to Forty2WestI went back to Forty2West again last night with some friends and had another
great meal. The same familiar servers now remember me which makes me all the more comfortable, coupled with a new Spring menu with creative options and wonderful steaks.
After dinner we enjoyed a few drinks at the bar.
They started a happy hour which I plan on going to after work.
Great food and comfort now make me a regular diner.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Service and attentionGreat Food, Service and attention detail. Our waiter and support staff were all knowledgeable of the menu. The Tuna Appetizer & Shrimp Cocktail were a perfect start. The fresh made pastas were outstanding. Everything that we had from dinner to dessert were fantastic. We chose this restaurant based on the reviews from opentable and they were completely accurate on describing this restaurant. Thank you for making it an enjoyable evening before we went to our show. We will definitely come back again.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFeels like HomeHad dinner again at forty2West.
I like a restaurant that is consistent and the food and service were just that.
I also like being comfortable. The staff recognized us from our previous visit and treated us like family. Everything was top notch.
We were told the Chef likes to mix up the menu with the seasons.
I'm looking forward to sampling the Spring menu.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food at 42 west ItalianThe food at 42 west Italian bar and chophouse was fabulous!!!!the ambience and decor are perfect for a romantic night.an impressive bar.the staff was friendly definitely we will be back and roasted chicken was out of this world3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMService, Food and Location = WINNERThe service was outstanding. The waitstaff overheard a comment about a birthday in our party, and we were immediately treated like royalty. The evening ended with a complementary dessert, complete with candle and a song. The food was top-notch Italian, and one of the appetizer specials for the evening, the tuna crudo, was the best ever tasted. Attentive staff and excellent food made this a place to return to often, especially given its fantastic location right in the heart of the Rockefeller Center zone in midtown Manhattan.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat fooddinner was great we love the food that executive chef John DiLemmme put out. the service was at the of there game. loved the upstairs for pivate parties (p.s. very petty resturant )3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood ReturnWe had a groupon from AJ Maxwell which is now 42 West. While the offering changed somewhat, we were very pleased with our meal. We had the Porterhouse for 2. It was cooked perfectly, seasoned well, and delicious. We were pleased, because our last few times at AJ Maxwell were not very good, but we thought with the groupon it was worth trying again. IT WAS. It was back to "steakhouse quality" and we will return.2/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
