    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 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.

    Choices range from salads, sandwiches & burgers to full entrees. My friend had bbq ribs & I had the bbq shrimp wrapped in bacon. There were 6 jumbo shrimp. Portions were large, the food was delicious. Tables spaced to allow private conversation. Music not blasting. Will definitely return.

    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.

    We just love to watch Guy on the Food Network so we were very excited to eat at his restaurant. What a waste of time and money. The food and beverages were so over priced for what they were. The calamari was EXTREMEMLY spicy and over cooked. Our expectations were high but with good reason based on Guy's reputation. What a shame that it didn't come close to meeting them. That being said, our server was great!!

    I guess I expected to be bowled over by Guys American Bar and Grill but I really was not. We ordered the Ri Calamari and the rotisserie chicken dinner. We are from RI so I was not expecting that the calamari would be so spicy and hot. The rings of calamari were also cut a little too thick. The chicken dinner was good but certainly not great. The breast portion of the chicken actually bordered on dry. Our server Michael was personable and pleasant. Michael our server suggested the fried ice cream for dessert so we went with his suggestion. Again it was ok but not really great. Overall the food is not terrible but not really what I would expect from a food channel chef. I would say I would not hurry back.

The menu has many unique items so we may be back to try more. We enjoyed the food we did pick and dessert as well. The food was well seasoned without leaving an after taste. We caught a Broadway show before this meal. It is located within steps from many popular theaters. Will return again!

    With all his shows and emphasis on flavor his restaurant falls way short. Common bar food. No real flavors to speak of. Servers were nice. Bar was adequate and was probably the only reason we stayed because honestly the drinks were good. With so many places to eat on NYC there is no reason to eat here. He needs to improve his restaurant or close.
