A word from Pennsylvania 6
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.

    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!

    Dined here before a New York Rangers playoff hockey game; restaurant is less then one block from Madison Square Garden. The atmosphere here is good, with an upscale seating area combined with a sports bar from the multiple televisions over the bar. Unfortunately, they were not up to the task of getting us out within an hour to catch the game. The servers were very nice, but apparently they have some problems in the kitchen and / or were overwhelmed with such a crowd on a Monday night.

    As the location is close to Penn Station and had a friend in for the weekend heading home we stopped in to catch brunch - Arrived a little after 11:00am only to find out that they did not open till 11:30am - but were more than accommodating by allowing us to sit at the bar while they continued setting up and served us a beverage while we waited - were seated at 11:25 - and had a fantastic brunch - service was top notch and the food was great - had the blue crab mac & cheese (a must) and the smoked salmon omelet - both outstanding - will be back soon for more of the mac & cheese!!!!

    In an area that is hard up for dining choices, Pennsylvania 6 is a stand out. While not exactly a dining destination itself, it's your best bet if you need to eat while near Madison Square Garden and Penn Station. The room is spacious, the red seating gives a visual boost to what is essentially an upscale sports bar. Service is friendly, competent and unharried. Food is definitely several notches above a typical sports themed restaurant and the burger made with 40% dry aged sirloin is well worth its price. Their beer and wine selection is also a cut above what might be expected.

    Food was really good, maybe a little pricey. But our server was very attentive and accommodating, especially because I have a dairy allergy. The cooks were also very accommodating with that. My mom ordered the best salad with no cheese and the waitress asked if she wanted her to add some greens (I guess the salad was just beets and cheese) at no extra cost, so that was nice. The only problem I had were the tv's that are in the restaurant. There was one giant tv made out of 9 screens at the bar and then two tv's by our seats in the restaurant and I found them a little distracting. Otherwise this place was great.

    Had a pre-game meal here before going to MSG. It was excellent! The Beer-braised short ribs were divine and the Crab macaroni & cheese was fantastic. Excellent service that even catered to my 7-yr-old. The only shortcoming was the flat bread was too salty. Overall, a great place to watch a game AND to grab a nice meal before a game.
