    Had dinner saturday night. We sat down at 5:45. There were 3 other tables seated the rest were empty. It took 15 minutes before we could order drinks. My wife and I both ordered an appetizer and main course. Her main course came out first with my appetizer. We thought it was strange but went with it. So now were are 40 minutes in. At this point with no entree and the long wait I asked for the check. 15 minutes later we still had no check. My wife went to find the waiter and ask for the check again. He said that the food was being prepared and on the way out. It was now after 7:15. We ended up leaving. Keep in mind we were 1 of 5 tables at this point.

    The restaurant providea a nice outdoor experience but the service was abysmal and that view was shared by others. No attention. Food came late and the check too more than a half hour to get. There weren't even explanations as to what the issue was Wouldn't go again

  • best business lunch spot in area

    Dined on 5/20/2014
    We're always searching for lunch meeting spots between the east side and west side in the 20s and 30s. In the midst of the food desert that is Penn Station and Herald Square, we found this oasis. The way the street entrance is set up, you hardly notice it's in a hotel. The food is extraordinarily well-prepared and -presented and compares well to any business lunch restaurant in Manhattan. Starting with the delicious popovers (one per person) and continuing through appetizers and main course, everything was flawless. We didn't try dessert this time because we ran short on time (our fault, not the restaurant's), but definitely will next time.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    This was the first time dining here after walking by it dozens of times. The restaurant is part of the Eventi hotel. They have a very nice menu although limited. The food was very good. I had a table for 2 and we were the only ones in the restaurant. I had a burger and my partner had the turkey club. Both delicious. The only thing I have to say is that the bar should always be open which it was not and we could not get a cocktail. They were serving wine or beer only. The restaurant décor is dated and has a cafeteria look. Definitely not a romantic or hip happening place. Would I go back? Yes. After all it's all about the food and it was delicious.

    This is our second time here and for us a beautiful setting for dinner before Broadway. The ambiance with the greenery makes you feel like your having dinner in the park. We both had salads which were interesting and very filling. The popovers to start are a very nice touch! We brought friends and they loved it.

    We ate dinner on New Year's Eve and was surprised to find there wasn't a special New Year's Eve menu in place as indicated on the website. The restaurant had a great outdoor-indoor feel but was dimly lit. The staff seemed to be busy as the night progressed and more tables became occupied. The food was fantastic until we got to dessert. The Apple Tarte Tatin was served cold as was the Choclate Lava Cake. The waiter made no attempt to offer coffee with dessert which we had to ask for. Overall a good meal. The menu needs a little spicing up.

    Humphrey's has a very limited menu that is a poor value. The wine list doesn't have a bottle under $50. Perhaps it works for out of town guests but for someone who is local there are so many better choices. Service was silly as they were training a new server who obviously had never done this before. I don't expect this type of service at a restaurant at this level.

    Dined on 10/6/2013
    The menu prices are about 25% higher than mentioned online, and beyond that somehow our one plate each and alcohol-free (I was there with my parents) brunch cost $40/person. The atmosphere was nice and rather empty, but the glass cover was down and it was quite warm. There was a nice view of a brick wall, an electronic billboard, the top of a hedge, and the sound of jackhammer nearby. Service was nice and the food was pretty good but not nearly worth the price.

    There are so many little places in and around Penn Station but I think Humphrey's is often overlooked because it is in the Eventi. The restaurant is in a side atrium the lounge and bar area are vibrant on different nights - but when I went they were both quiet. I have been here twice and both times the food was delicious - once I had a beautifully prepared NY strip and the second time a lovely grilled cheese and tomatoe soup! Nothing like comfort food. The menu is nice; the staff attentive. My only compliant is that the lighting is very dark. I don't want bright lights, big city but I do like to be able to read the menu without my phone flashlight app. Overall a nice dinner.

    Super fresh, great menu. Been here a few times...brunch, lunch and dinner. Every time was exceptional (REALLY love their brunch buffet). But food aside, I must say this is an exceptionally well run restaurant. From greeting to service, everyone was warm and welcoming. When I had a question about the menu, the manager (who later introduced himself as John) came over and cleared things up himself! Very hands-on and personable, you can tell the whole staff is passionate about what they do. Cannot wait for my next chance to stop in.

    Really enjoyed the food -- the fresh berries were wonderful, as was the omelette and the preserves that came with the toast. The only downside was the omelette came with a side salad and none of us could eat it because it was drenched in dressing. But everything else was delicious. And our server Syretta (sp?) was AMAZING. Excellent, excellent service. Plus, the patio is beautiful.

    be careful with your credit cards!!! I was here with a friend for lunch. we asked for the bill to be split with 2 credit cards. the waitress charged my card for the entire amount, and for the split amount TWICE!!!the worst part she NEVER told me she did this. This place had about $200 hung up on my card. When i went to management about this they responsive but there was NO follow up, i had to physically go back to this place to get any action. The action they provided was a "Sorry and we are looking into that terminal" the customer service and appreciation is extremely poor, there really is no reason i would EVER go back

    The day I was there was very rainy. I imagine it's nicer on a sunny day. The air conditioning was on full blast and it was freezing. Also they had loud music playing and I would have preferred that it be way toned down so we could have a quiet conversation. I didn't complain about that because I had already complained about the a/c. The food was very good and so was the service. It's really convenient to Penn Station and that is why I chose to go there. Would probably go back if I am ever in that neighborhood again.
