    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.

    Had a great dining experience at Parker & Quinn. We went on Saturday nite and it was pretty quiet at 6pm. Many of the reviews i read said that the noise level was too loud. We had the ribs stuffed peppers and flatbread pizza and the caramel salted cheesecake for dessert. Everything had a gourmet flare which made for a delicious meal

    The restaurant was very spacious and not too crowded (but it was Monday night). The loved the interior design with the elevated booths and leather chairs. It sort of reminded me of the Smith but a little more exciting. The food was great - we got the stuffed peppers and meatballs as apps and hanger steak arugula salad and lamb pasta for entrees. My steak was perfectly cook to medium and it was delicious. I felt like it was a great value too. Highly recommend for the area!

    Great food great service we had a great table..up some steps towards the hotel ...went with parents and a nephew...trouble was, we had to repeat every conversation so person on the other side of table could hear... The noise from the bar was so loud. Our food was delish ..mom raved about the lobster roll I loved my lamb burger but noisey noisey noisey even for early dinner at 615p.with the folks and a kid...p&q might be best for the bar crowd or a stop for lunch? I may still go back for lunch the lamb burger is that good!

    I was excited about eatin at Parker & Quinn because I've stayed at the Refinery Hotek a few times an have enjoyed the Rooftop with beautiful views and also the music and cocktails in the Lobby lounge. However the restaurant disappointed. Our waitress was fine - friendly and attentive enough - but the food was very mediocre. The lamb meatballs were the best item we ordered but nothing special. The octopus was well cooked but was served lukewarm and didn't pack much flavor. The fig and prosciutto pizza was overwhelmingly swee t be issue of way too much fig preserves and the dough seemed like it was store bought pita bread. The watermelon salad was not good. Mealy watermelon, overdressed and wilted greens and included julienned carrots. Ugh.

    Me and my friend had a reservation at 6:30. Sat down no prob. Ordered drinks and food which was good. We paid the check and left a nice tip. Then, my friend left and my boyfriend decided to meet me for a drink. But the waiter said we couldn't stay at the table and would have to go to the bar which was crowded. I wasn't very happy about this and left. Their loss!

    Finding a good casual, tourist-free restaurant in midtown (especially the Times / Herald Square area) might be a tough task sometimes... a few blocks south-east you get Parker & Quinn. Having had dinners and lunches there I can certainly attest to the quality of the food, the casual (but excellent) service, and overall ambiance (on the louder side, but not atypical for NYC spots). Menus change so I won't go into specifics, except to say that we were always happy with pork and chicken entrees, seafood appetizers, and the choice of wine & craft beers. Will revisit soon...

    Our visit to Parker & Quinn was quite nice. They could easily be missed in the busy Times Square area where we are always looking for something other than a chain restaurant. We also have a vegetarian and a meat lover in our party so the menu has to fit us. Had the rotisserie chicken - really the best... crab cake sandwich - very nice... mac and cheese - excellent. The French fries were the best - just what fries should be and plentiful. Our server was attentive and food came quickly. A reservation is a must even on a Monday at 6:00. Quite a bar crowd. My only quibble would be it was very very loud. It's a place for a fun time - not an intimate dinner. We would go back.

    Super-friendly and charming hostesses, good service, very good food, comfortable environment. The 2-tops are pretty close to each other, which is typical of Manhattan restaurants, but a little more room would be nice. Had the lobster roll - fresh, tasty although a tad bland. My friend had the soft-shell crabs with some asparagus, plus a Key lime pie - he really enjoyed both. As a West Village local I actually don't eat in midtown a lot - but this place has a nice clean, professional atmosphere, possibly due to it's being in the Refinery hotel.

    Went there by accident - will return because I want to - despite the steak tartare being smothered in sauces and too salty (they changed it out at once - and it was good). Everything else was absolutely perfect - love the bartender, and very very well ltrained staff. Love the seating, the music, and I am so glad I went.

    The food here was very solid. The place was decorated in a very half-rustic, half-modern manner. I wouldn't take a date here as it's more of a really good hang-out spot. We had the pork chops and the lamb ragu pasta, and both were good. We were seated on high bar stools, which was a bit inconvenient, as both my friend and I were wearing dresses. The inner part of the restaurant was quieter, but any louder and it would have been difficult to have a conversation.

    A beautiful, Art Deco setting just off of Bryant Park, NYC. The prices are very reasonable for NY fine dining. We brought our two small children, and they happily ate kid friendly food without needing. "Kiddie menu." There is a happening, vibrant bar scene, but we had an elevated booth which protected them from the crowd and let us watch it all. The staff was wonderful. The food was unique and very well done. This place is a must.

    This was my first time to the restaurant. I was there on a Thursday night.. It was very crowded and very loud. The ambiance was very eclectic which I loved but it was difficult to have a conversation with my date as it was to loud to have a conversation. I would go back for drinks during peak hours with a group but not to eat

    Unfortunately chose this for a business dinner. The noise level made conversation impossible, and the crowded space contributed to a chaotic atmosphere. Not a calm or pleasant experience, although individual wait staff were pleasant and helpful. The food was alright, although I'm not sure that foie gras really enhances scallops. I probably would not choose to go here again.

    Really enjoyed our dinner. Our waiter made several recommendations that happened to coincide with what we were considering anyway. We split the fig flat bread, scallops and lamb ragout. All were very tasty--we were definitely happy with our selections. The service was attentive. Some reviews said the restaurant is loud--we ate early and did not have any problems with the noise level. We both said we would recommend P&Q to friends and would return on another trip to NY.
