    Our service was super friendly and attentive. The food was good, perhaps a little overpriced, but servings were large and, to be fair, prices were comparable to other restaurants near Times Square. Fun atmosphere.

    We were seated right away - service was good - not over attentive. Food was good too - not many healthy choices but still good - the other 3 people in my party were very pleased. Funkin Pumpkin ale was outstanding.

    i was kind of excited to try Guys American Kitchen. Absolutely love the man a chef and a t.v personality and was interested in the restaurant. I know it was located in Times Square so I was prepared for the tourist driven atmosphere. The food on a whole was bland and defiantly prepared from frozen rather than fresh. I sampled a large verity of the menu because I was with my family and no one was satisfied.

  • Surprised Guy puts his name on it..
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 10/26/2014
    I'm really surprised Guy puts his name on this place. With Guy's restaurant, I thought that it would be good food. The staff was very nice and pleasant, the menu sounded delicious. However, when the wings came out less than 5 min after ordering it, and the meal came out 10 minutes later, I knew there was a problem. While I don't expect them to smoke ribs when I order them, I also don't expect them to serve the same ribs from lunch either. My wifes chicken was precooked and then covered with sauce when we ordered it. My daughters garlic mashed had been sitting around for a while. The only thing that was made when we ordered it was my kids chicken strips. If I ever end up there, I may try a burger but that's it. We ate dinner at 6:30pm.

    We ate here for lunch before seeing a show. I ordered the half rotisserie chicken which came served in a flavorful gravy with mushrooms, potatoes and seasonal vegetables that were cooked perfectly! The other two dishes ordered (pork sliders and a hamburger) were delicious also! My only complaint was that the music was very loud and we struggled to hear each when talking. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a relaxed atmosphere while visiting the theater district.

    My party and I had a hard time choosing our meal because the menu looked so good. The Huli Huli Chicken was delicious. A friend ordered the meatloaf and loved his food as well. We all shared the calamari as an appetizer, which was one of the best I've had with just the right amount of spice. I was excited to see that it included the entire squid (both tentacles and rings). For dessert, we tried the fried ice cream which was also very tasty. My boyfriend said it was the closest thing to real Mexican fried ice cream he's had since he lived in California. Service was excellent and the ambience was fun too. Overall, a great experience and I would definitely go back.

    We booked here as we enjoy Guy on his Diners, Driveins and Dives programme. We live in the UK and thought it would be fun to eat in one of his restaurants during our short trip to New York. To be honest, the food featured in his TV programme was far better to anything served here. The ambience was ok, very open, sports bar type feel, the place was big and at 5.30 pm not busy at all ( we want early as had young kids with us). Food arrived way too quickly for me to feel like it had been cooked fresh to order. Husbands pork shank just looked "pink" and we didn't want to touch it for fear of it being uncooked. Complained to server and they offered anything else, we just took a portion of fries. Even then, average. Wouldn't recommend.

    Great for watching sports with all the TV's...we enjoyed the food as well. We just ordered several appetizers but they were all really good. Our waitress was very friendly and the overall atmosphere was great! We didn't go here expecting fancy dishes but more casual, spiced up bar food.

    Believe the hype! This place has food worthy of Celeb Chef status…. What a treat to taste some of the great food seen on tv… Best part is the vibe inside is not like most big Times Square restaurants… It is not deafening! Great music payed in the background and our server was perfectly attentive! I can't wait to brave the lunacy of times Sq to come back!

    We are such fans of Guy's and we thoroughly enjoyed his food. The nachos we're delish and we now understand what he means when he talks about building layers of flavor. Service was great and we felt special which was nice because we were there to celebrate my daughter and her two year cancer free anniversary. So thanks it is a great memory now which we will cherish for all time! We will recommend to all when visiting NYC that Guy's restaurant is a must do!!!!!!!

    Guy's restaurant is a typical themed restaurant in times square. The food at these type of restaurants are never great. Guy's restaurant had good food. Not great, but better than most other themed restaurants. Food and drinks will cost you about $50 per person.

    This restaurant was a total disappointment. Very limited menu selections. Quality of the food was less than average especially considering it is a Guy Fieri "joint". Pork BBQ was too sweet and definitely not enough meat on the sliders, did not taste like it was barbequed or even cooked in their wood oven, probably roasted in the oven. Fries were good but you can't run a restaurant on Fries alone. Would not recommend this place and will not be back!

    This was our second time at Guys. We loved our choices from our first visit, but tried some new entrees. Once again, the food was great. Our server was wonderful, made some great suggestions and was very attentive. We go to Broadway shows often and this be our "regular" spot to get dinner from now on.

    The perfect place for a great meal after spending a beautiful day in NYC. Located in the middle if the theatre district is just so convenient and easy to find. The food was delicious and there's whether you choose from whether you want a light salad , which was great especially since I added the grilled chicken ..yummy..or a full dinner like Guys meatloaf..not just any meatloaf.. There's shrimp specialty sandwiches with that New Orleans kick too. Just a great place with plenty of space and excellent service from the moment you enter until the time you leave, everyone is extremely polite, courteous and helpful. Enjoy.

    I had read mixed reviews and still wanted to try it. The service was very very slow and it wasn't that busy. We both ordered the ribs. They were good. The fries and slaw were less so. Below average. The fried ice cream was recommended. Awful. Would never order again. I expect more from Guy since he is supposed to be the food perfectionist. Two people, ribs, one fried ice cream and one beer each was $90. Only in NY.

    We had a 6:00 reservation and arrived at 5:40 after our play. We were seated right away....great! Took forever for the waitress to come over although the lower level was only half full and she wasn't alone. Finally got drinks then she disappeared and we waited and waited to order. Finally order appetizers and main course. Got appetizer rather quickly and asked three different people for silverware...really?!? By the time we started our appetizer the main course arrived. Food was good, but we weren't happy to have so much on our table.

    Started of good. Buuuut, our server disappeared after the apps. I managed to flag him down for a second beer, but that came after I was done eating and my wife never got a chance to order a second one. Disappeared again and I just went to the host to pay. Felt like a prisoner. Also. Don't order the ribs. You will regret it. Sorry Guy. Big fan though.

    This is the place for American classic diner food taken to a different and often better place. It is not fine dining. It is not gourmet. It is burgers and wings and chicken fingers, Ceasar salads, mac and cheese and fries - great, garlicky cheesy fries. The basics are shaken up, added to, and all for the good. Nothing is going to blow your mind, but we came with a group of 4 adults and 4 kids, which included 3 vegetarians, 2 insanely picky people and one major carnivore. We all left full, happy and with doggy bags. The salads were fresh and not all outside/dark/limp leaves such as I have had at high-end super expensive restos. My only complaint was the salt level but that is always an issue for me. Free drink refills!

    I watch Guy's grocery games and decided to look online for a restaurant of his. When I located one in Manhattan I decided to go for my Birthday. The reservation a party of 4, provided us the privilege to walk right in and be seated. The staff and waiter were all friendly. There was a variety of food to try. The food along with the dessert was great. My 16 year old took pictures of everything that was placed on the table. This was the first time that my kids and I had Fried Ice cream and it was delicious.

    This restaurant was okay. The food was okay but nothing memorable. There are many restaurants in NYC and this was a destination restaurant for the name only. Upon our arrival, service was mediocre and unenthused. I put in reservations which I thought was helpful being NYC but there were very few people in the restaurant during dinner time; therefore, a reservation was a mute point.
