    I used a Groupon for dinner and the place was virtually empty. The benefit was getting a large banquet. The food was definitely decent and I would imagine a better spot for lunch. It was sort of dreary at dinner time. Our server was very nice and although my steak was undercooked, it came back fine and not overcooked. Wine is on the pricey side.

    I have been here twice now for lunch, and have tried a number of the appetizers as well as two entrees. The portions are very generous, and the food is simply delicious. This is quickly becoming my new go-to place for a quick, satisfying business lunch. Service is great, everyone is very courteous and attentive. I'm already thinking about what I'll order the next time I go!

    I arrived ten minutes early for my reservation and was told they were too busy to seat me. My lunch date was ten minutes late. i asked two more times to be seated and was refused. I was not offered a seat at the bar and the chairs and couch in front were occupied. This is unacceptable and I will not return to the restaurant. Too bad because the food is good.

    I was meeting a friend near Bryant Park to catch up and decided to try the Groupon. We had the tuna ceviche for appetizer, hanger steak, and grilled salmon. The food was cooked to perfection and the staff was competent and friendly. A relaxing great night out...what more do you need?

    We chose LT Burger to celebrate with friends. Unfortunately it had become LT bar and grill and we did not notice the change, until we saw the menu and sadder still, when our food arrived. On previous visits, the hamburger was the best ever and the other day it was tasteless. They were offering sushi and had a raw bar and everything we were not interested in. We're back on the hunt for a delicious burger and will step lightly in to LT Bar & Grill, if ever again.

    Only been for lunch, but it's great food for reasonable price near Bryant Park -- now my go-to place near the office. Had the falafel salad and the Asian chicken salad -- both inventive, delicious and very satisfying. Service quick and proficient. Prices good. Only complaint is that the banquette seating is low, so you feel like a 6-year-old...

    Brought my family including two kids (10 and 8) and this was the perfect spot to entertain my sister in law who was visiting from Japan. We were going to go to a steakhouse, but stumbled on LT and glad I did. Food was amazing and had eclectic selections that made everybody happy. We got sushi, steak, fish and chips, burgers and milkshakes. Quite a range and selection which is why I chose it and was not disappointed in the least. Great music and atmosphere for many different types of people. Great bar downstairs and seating upstairs was energrtic with music playing at the perfect volume to keep conversations going and still hum along to some favorites.

    I used to come here for lunch and dinner when it first opened. I had realized their name changed from LT Burger to LT Bar and Grill...I came here for dinner after almost an absence of a year and found that they pulled burgers from their dinner menu except the main LT Backyard. They added sushi and real entrees for dinner (sushi? really? This was never a sushi joint!) and I was really disappointed to see that burgers were removed from the dinner menu. We still had the LT Backyard burger which was good but I wanted another burger. The fried oreos, oreo milkshake were amazing - and I'm not even a dessert person. The fried pickles; thank god they still had these on the menu! My only comment is BRING BACK THE BURGERS ON THE DINNER MENU PLEASE!

    We were disappointed with the food. Everything needed more flavor. We had one strip steak and one fillet mignon. Would not reorder either. The fries were too well done, dried out and almost burned. We were there early on a Monday night but the restaurant was almost empty. People do not return, if they are disappointed.

    I have never written a review, but I still cannot believe I paid so much for such terrible food. My lamb burger was black and burnt. I asked our waiter what could be done and he whisked it away and apologized. Before he did, I said I like lamb burgers that are pink. He nearly finished my sentence, but still brought me a second burger that was over-cooked.

    Don't let the name fool you, this is far from just a bar; love the feeling inside, upscale but not "white tablecloth" stuffy. Menu short and sweet with tons to choose from. Unique dishes and beautiful presentation. The Chicken salad was ordered by my uncle and when it came it was a masterpiece! Nothing like what I expected! My daughter had the fish and chips that were cooked to perfection and I had my usual salmon that had a perfect crispy top on a bed if wonderful couscous! Definitely recommend to anyone in area for lunch or dinner!

    Food good, but not outstanding. Not a place I would choose for a "classy" full relaxing dinner in this price range due to atmosphere -- lacks the warmth, coziness and ambiance that I seek. Also too noisy, although not too bad when upstairs away from the bar.

    Food was great, but our server had a terrible attitiude. My Aunt is allergic to cilantro, and asked several questions about how the food was prepared. Our server was rude, had an attitude, and seemed very annoyed to be asked questions concerning the food preparations. My Aunt had to ask several times to make sure there was no cilantro in her dish, and instead of saying "let me confirm with the chef", our server just said "I'm pretty sure", and didn't offer to confirm at all (leading my Aunt to ask if she would!). When it was time for dessert, she came over and instead of offering us menus, had our bill tucked behind her back. When we asked about the desserts, her annoyance was palable. Love this place but wow, what awful service.
