A word from Pennsylvania 6 - NYC
Pennsylvania 6, is a new restaurant that is changing the landscape of the Herald Square neighborhood. Bringing with it the feeling of Old New York and a new taste of classic American dining, Pennsylvania 6 is a 21st Century cross between the Oak Room and the Oyster Bar. (The name is a tribute to Pennsylvania 6-5000, the phone number of the nearby Pennsylvania Hotel, made famous in the song of the same name performed by the Glenn Miller Orchestra.) Born of casual American roots with a sophisticated culinary twist, boasting a raw bar stocked with the finest oysters and shellfish, and an artisanal cocktail bar, a craft beer list, and an eclectic wine list, there could be no better time for its introduction, as the neighborhood continues to evolve and the bordering NoMad neighborhood becomes a burgeoning dining destination with The Breslin, John Dory, the Ace Hotel and NoMad.

    Catching up with a friend we hadn't seen in a while. Server was very understanding when we hadn't looked at the menus right away. Told us to take all the time we needed and was very nice. Hostess checked the 2 small bags we had with us. Food was good. Everyone enjoyed the beverages. 2 of us got dessert and really liked it. Nice location, good food, friendly service, not too noisy (we could have a decent conversation).

    i am always looking for a place to eat dinner before Rangers games and may have finally found the perfect spot. Four of us went for the first time and all commented that we would definitely go back. The bar was packed and very loud but the restaurant was much more subdued. we had an excellent waitress. The items ordered from the raw bar were fresh and delicious. i had short ribs that were prepared perfectly. others had steak that came out cooked as ordered and good quality meat. my only complaint was that the wine list was very weak, especially for a steak house.

    We were seeing a show at Madison Square Garden, so this place was perfectly located. It was loud, no doubt(especially from the happy hour crowd at the bar), but the food was really good and service was prompt and friendly. I would recommend for a pre-show drink or meal. We were all pleased with the experience.

    First of all their bar maid should learn how to pour a DECENT glass of wine! $9 for a glass of rose which was a paltry serving. In fact, I challenged her on the ridiculous amount and she claimed she couldn't see the amount!!!! I will never return -- food was okay. Looks like a place for lunch for workers nearby.

    We were recommended this place by a friend and it did not disappoint. It is a block from madison Square garden so brilliant for pre/post show dining or drinks. We had our 8 and 9 year old children with us and the menu was great for them also. Steak was very nice. The burger was great . We also had the tuna tartare which was good. The service was excellent. Very friendly and quick. Loved the red booths! We would definitely go back.

    Went to Penn6 w/a group to watch the USC game. Great service from hostess to bartender to wait stafff - Excellent! Unfortunately can't say the same for the food. Pulled pork nachos were average at best, $19 Penn6 Burger is NOT WORTH IT! Absolutely Boring. The Mezze Flatbread w/hummus was ok. Best part of the night was the excellent Cosmopolitan (pink, not sweet in a beautiful martini glass), good bar scene and again...Great Service!

    We were a party of 8 for a pre-Luke Bryan show at MSG and were served quickly by a pleasant staff. The cold seafood shellfish appetizers were fresh, and the Burger (top with a fried egg) was special. Met up after the show for a night-cap. Great choice near MSG!

    My daughter took the train in from Long Island, she wanted to eat close to Penn Station. Found this place through a New Yorker article, grabbed a reservation on Open Table and gave it a shot. Excellent service from a very knowledgable wait staff, fresh Raw Bar with a good selection of oysters (East and West Coast), shrimp, and clams. Single-page lunch menu with a simple selection of fish, pork, chicken and beef, with a very nice appetizer and pizza selection. I had the Corn Soup as a starter, it was puréed and delicious. Comfortable seats, lots of room in the restaurant and a very nice bar w/ a white marble top. A bit pricey but not out of line for mid-town places like this. Will definitely be back, for Sunday brunch or dinner next time.

    I have traveled the world and I never thought I would be able to say that I finally found the perfect burger and rye Manhattan. I rank their burger as high as I rank the steak at most top steak houses. It was perfect black and blue as requested. So flavorful that I added NO condiments. And when the waiter by accident picked up a slightly unfinished Manhattan the Manger came back with two perfect rye Manhattans on the house

    My wife and I had dinner here before the Michael Buble concert at the Garden. When we walked in the noise was overwhelming as the World Cup semi finals were underway. Once the game ended the screens were shut off and the noise returned to a more comfortable level. The dinner itself was great. We enjoyed the blue crab mac and cheese appertizer, a wonderfully prepared monkfish entree and a tasty almond cheese cake for dessert. The delightful and cheery service provided by our waitress added to the entire experience. We will definitely go there again when we return to the neighborhood.

    Dined on 6/21/2014
    As stated in the title, we came here for the first time before the Billy Joel concert on Sat. June 21. We did not know what to expect as for once I hadn't looked at the menu prior to coming to the restaurant. We came for shared appetizers, as we did not want to have a big full meal having to go and enjoy a concert afterwards, which was totally fine for us. So we did not experience the full menu, but can maybe do so on a future visit. The service was really good as the main server along with anyone else helping out was very attentive to our needs. The one thing that will not say that I was not impressed with their drinks at all...my martini was lousy & the specialty drink that I tried was too sweet and tasted crappy.

    We usually go to Penn 6 for work related activities, either a team lunch or dinner, or a after work drinks and apps. Overall, the large restaurant, and great location near penn station makes this place a great choice. Food is very good quality, and service is typically very solid. A good departure from the typical lame places around Penn Station.

    Just down the street from Madison Square Garden and Penn Station in NYC, Penn 6 had good food and drink. We had drink coupons which made the bill more reasonable, I found the food and drink prices high. The food was good and the service was excellent for our sit down dinner. The bar was quite crowded with the World Cup on, I suspect that any sports event especially one at MSG would create a crowd at Penn 6.

    Penn 6 was a perfect place to watch the USA world cup game. awesome TV's (although it would be great if the big screen tv did not shake), nice selection of beers, fun energy at the bar and the pizzas were delicious. we were a work group and it was a perfect way to mix business with pleasure. i have been to Penn 6 a bunch of times and it is always a great place to have good food and drinks in a cool atmosphere while watching a game.

    We were so impressed with how great everything was at Pennsylvania 6. The service was beyond professional and exceeded every level of excellence. The food was hands down one of the best I've had. The menu offers a little bit of everything and it is one of a kind. Each dish was cooked perfectly from the Blue Crab Mac and Cheese to the center cut and the beer braised short ribs, we were beyond impressed. The highlight of the whole night was the AMAZING dessert. The warm chocolate tart was to die for and so worth it. I will most definitely be returning to try out their lunch and brunch menu. Please do yourself a favor and try this place!
