    My wife and I had dinner at Parker and Quinn and the experience was very pleasant. My wife enjoyed the braised short rib stuffed peppers. I had the pan seared sea scallops with froie gras. Again this was excellent. The atmosphere is pleasant and the service was excellent. I recommend this to any one.

    They need to work on their front door reception. When I went to check in for my 6pm reservation there were no less than 3 "hostesses" with their backs turned to the customers staring at the bookings machine while the line of people continued to grow at the front door. Not paying attn to anyone and talking amongst themselves. Otherwise the service and food are good once you actually get seated.

    Food was excellent and service was great. Our appetizer of chicken meatballs came out not hot (lukewarm) - I (politely) sent it back. They brought out a piping hot order and moments later the manager came by and apologized, and took the meatballs off of our bill. I thought that was very generous and a nice touch! Our waiter was very friendly, the restaurant has a lovely, vibrant, buzzy atmosphere and the food was really outstanding. The only caution I would have is to be sure to add some sides to your main meat dish as they don't really come with any sides (or substantial sides). Otherwise, top notch.

    Parker Quinn was a great dinner spot for my girlfriend's 21st. The people working there were very friendly and helpful but most importantly the food was great. The stuff peppers appetizer stands at the top of any appetizers that I've had. The ribs fell right off the bone. Overall a great meal. Would recommend with no hesitations.

    My two friends and I were visiting NYC from the UK for my birthday weekend. My cousin and his wife who live in Washington were also meeting us in NYC on my birthday to celebrate. That's why I booked dinner at Parker & Quinn. We were immediately seated in a fantastic booth table near the back of the restaurant. The service was quick and friendly and my meal was delicious (if a little different than I was expecting). The prices were reasonable too. The best thing about the restaurant was by far the atmosphere. All around us were smiling faces which really made the evening special. I will definitely be going back there the next time I visit NYC.

    Good American Bar food. The Plate and portion sizes are small of both appetizers and main dishes for the price. Food tasty and made with fresh ingredients . Order sandwiches or multiple courses if hungry. All sides are sold separately . We tried many entree's and sides and shared. Great tasting desserts!

    I found this place by accident as the door does not stand out much from all the other shops on the same block. It's a good option for the neighborhood for either lunch or after work drinks. If you are more than two people they have cool booths that are a few steps up from the rest of the restaurant which I really liked. The menu is pretty large with plenty of option and everything we ordered was good.

    Had a great, non-fussy dinner. Food was good (great mac n' cheese, arugula salad), and service was attentive. I travel frequently, and am always looking for dining locations where I can dine alone or with others. I like an ease of access to the menu, to the servers and wait staff, and where there is a nice buzz and ambiance. I'll be back!

    This is usually a safe pick yet I was disappointed with my last visit. The chicken was a little bland and the mashed potatoes were watery. The chef needs to bring back the asparagus and corn as side dishes. Service was MUCH better than during the last 2 visits.

    What a great place...Except for the noise level! There were four of us, and we were seated in a u-shaped booth, but it was one of the booths in the front bar area - definitely crowded and loud, so much so that we were basically yelling at each other at the table to be able to hear one another; not ideal for us because we hadn't seen each other in a while and wanted to catch up. Food was good, and so was dessert - may try it again, but will definitely make sure that we ask to sit in the back -

    Made an online reservation for lunch one day ahead with a special request for a quiet table and place for a wheelchair as I was bringing my elderly handicapped aunt. We were greeted at the door with enthusiasm and escorted to our table, which was arranged for wheelchair access and nicely surrounded by a half wall. It was still noisy but better than other lunch places we've been. Waitress and staff were overly attentive and made her feel like a queen. Food was great and reasonably priced for midtown; good menu choices for people with visual and swallowing issues. Exceptional value. VERY pleased with everything but will time the next lunch for 2pm-ish after many patrons have left for a quieter meal.

    I found this restaurant on Yelp, looking for a place to go before attending a concert at Town Hall. I had half of a lightly smoked chicken and my girlfriend had a pan-seared pork chop, both of which were delicious. We also shared an order of bacon-cheddar grits and sautéed broccoli rabe. The menu is very flexible offering an array of small plates, meat dishes, entrees, sandwiches, etc. YOu could come here for a casual lunch or a fancy dinner. I will definitely return.

    Had a meal here before seeing a Broadway show; had a salad and 1/2 order of pasta which was perfect and filling. I had lamb ragu and my dining partner had the procini pasta - both were served piping hot, freshly made, and delish! Service was pretty speedy and friendly. Definitely recommend trying this gem.

    I'm always in search of someplace decent to grab dinner near Penn Station. Despite pretty good reviews, I was nervous about P&Q b/c I haven't had great experience w/ restaurants near Penn - and at hotel bars/restaurants. However, I was really surprised. It's incredibly loud, so definitely not a great date place or a place for quiet conversation, but the menu has a great selection and the food was very good. Will definitely go back.

    Looking for something close to my hotel to have dinner and a drink. Food came five minutes after ordering and was so hot you could touch it...never a good sign, and as suspected, the food was dismal at best. Service may have been worse. Was rushed, literally in and out in less than 30 minutes, after having been given a table right next to the kitchen door. Will NEVER return.

    The menu is thoughtful and well executed- the food is great. The bar attracts a robust happy hour crowd and the noise level is such that you have to scream to have a conversation with your table mates. The service here is smug and hurried. During my last visit, the waiter stopped by our table about every 2 minutes to see if we were ready to order. I ordered a salad as a starter and they brought everything out together nearly 5 minutes after we ordered. We had been seated and fed in less than 30 minutes. They took our glasses from the table, delivered the check and I saw the waiter tell the staff not to refill our water glasses. I expect that when I reserve a table, I can sit there for 60-90 minutes and enjoy my company. I will not go back.

    This place has the vibe of an upscale Irish pub. Very welcoming. The menu selection was good. The service was friendly....and quick! The roasted corn side dish was absolutely delicious and the BBQ sauce on the chicken breast dish was just the right amount of spicy! This is a place I will visit again and again.

    There are many restaurants in NY city selling the same thing; Parker and Quinn is not one of them. The restaurant is full of decor, very comfortable booths, it is lively and has a unique menu. Many reviews on Google said the restaurant was loud; this is not the case, it has an energetic atmosphere, which one wants when out in NY city. We will frequent Parker and Quinn.

    My wife and I had some of the best steaks we've eaten in a long time at Parker & Quinn. According to our waiter, the steaks are smoked, and that imparts a wonderful flavor to a quality piece of meat. The vegetable sides were done to perfection. Everyone was very attentive, and seemed to enjoy working there. The place looks like something out of the 1920s, but the music was '50s and '60s; the soundtrack of our lives. (Sorry about that!) We'll be back!

    This was our first time there, we planned a working lunch and all was OK until the clock marked 12PM, the music was very very loud and that forced us and everybody else to yell at each other to be able to have a conversation. Service was good, food was excellent and prepared to order. Menu options are good enough without being overwhelming, so something for everyone's taste. I am celiac and my needs were easily accommodated It is a good place but they need to control the volume in the music....

    I came here with my boyfriend and had a nice time. The food is EXCELLENT! I loved everything we had. We came at 8pm on a Wednesday night. It was a bit louder then I would have liked, but it's definitely worth it! There are beautiful raised booths along the walls that I have sat in before. None were available, so we had a table at regular floor level. We ordered the boneless ribeye, pork chop, collard greens, and asparagus. The food was cooked and seasoned perfectly! Our cocktails were well made and the service was good. It can be a little pricey depending on what you order, but you definitely get excellent quality and preparation, so I feel it's worth it. Try to get a booth space if possible.
