ANGUS is a theatre district
ANGUS is a theatre district favorite. Unpretentious, wonderful staff, with a fantastic variety of food. Have been there many, many times through the years. Never disappointing.There is something for everyone, and the prices can fit into any budget. You can always count on seeing someone famous dining there. A must try.

I really liked the after-show
I really liked the after-show menu and the "Late Night Snack." Angus was not very busy but still seemed cozy and welcoming. The waitstaff was great and laid back. The menu and drink prices were reasonable. I plan on returning, it was perfect for after enjoying a musical, will recommend to other Richmonders who enjoy a New York weekend.

Great pre theater choice
Went with group for a pre theater dinner. Everyone loved the food and the desserts were excellent. Definitely will return.

We wanted to have a special
We wanted to have a special brunch nearby the garage and the Booth Theatre before seeing Bette Midler; one of us has difficulty walking far, so Angus was in a perfect location.
The menu was unusual and intriguing, and we made good choices. My selection was not as exotic as I'd expected, but it was tasty and well prepared. Service was excellent. One disappointment: The advertising said there was an elevator, which was one of the reasons we chose Angus; we had hoped for a second-floor table--maybe overlooking the street scene--but were told the elevator goes only to the third floor, which was not open at the time. The ad should have been more detailed re elevator availability.

Angus is always good food
Angus is always good food with great service and always an enjoyable experience. Great for B4, after or during theater time. I have never left there without complete satisfaction.

Consistently Good, Fast Service
Another nice meal at Angus's, this is a reliable place for pre-theater dinner, the service is quick and your waiter always is aware of the time constraints. It is a 'pubby' atomosphere and quite lively, you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I went to Angus' before seeing Phantom. I chose this restaurant for the historic value. It's just an iconic Broadway destination, and still draws a crowd and caters to the Broadway elite. We were actually sat in the upper room next to the window, so we had a great view of the street and the Majestic. It was also quieter up there. I had the Salmon Prix Fix dinner. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. The portion was definitely on the small side as well, but I understand this is common for the Prix Fix menu.
Overall, I enjoyed the experience and would go back.

Liked the variety of the old menu better, but this is still a handy place in mid-town and the food is good.

Excellent theatre neighborhood
Hard to find a good restaurant in the theatre district, but this one is wonderful. Helpful, good food, reasonable prices, and efficient service. Mussels are especially delicious.
5/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
great pre theatre
We went there before a show and the service was so fast we had time to spare. The food was good and reasonable prices. Would not hesitate to go there again pre-theatre
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great before the theater.
The food was delicious and the service was spot on. We will go back!

Good after theater restaurant
Not as well known as some of the other theater favorites but highly enjoyable and recommended.

Went to Angus Cafe pre-show. Very attentive staff, answered questions, unhurried. Got out with plenty of time before show. Excellent food. We had the 38 oz porterhouse steak for two with 3 sides...$79! Delicious! Recommend reservation.....not many diners when we arrived, but it was almost full when we left.

Tasty/Convenient Pre-Theatre Eatery
The menu has a wide range, from burgers to steak and seafood. The have great desserts and espresso. The service was efficient and very good. Smack, dab in the middle of the theatre district... there are must be more than 15 Broadway Theatres within a 5 minute walk of this establishment
6/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was great and the food was tasty. It was steps away from our theater. The pre-show meal is the perfect option!
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
I was able to find an organic entree option as well as an organic beer on the specials

a rare neighborhood gem
I love tourists, primarily because NYC's financial health heavily depends on their active presence. But, at times, living in a touristy area here could also mean it is hard for us to find "neighborhood sanctuaries" where we can just throw back and relax--particularly over the summer months.
Luckily, Angus' offers such an atmosphere. Despite the location, it isn't a tourist trap and it offers a calm and relaxed environment in which to dine. The food they serve is actually quite good, the menu is sufficiently interesting and varied, and the service, too, is rather consistent. This is among the best places for weekend brunches.
All in all, I am very happy that Angus' exists in my neighborhood.

The food was tasty, normal sized portions. Good price fixed menu choices. French fries were delish. Friendly wait staff but seemed a little disorganized.

Sat by the open front- very pleasant! Nice for casual lunch before theater.

I chose this off google maps as it was close to the show we were going to see... Matilda. I really enjoyed the place and the food. My daughter had fish and chips and it was yummy. Great batter. And I had the minute steak and frites. Delicious. And might add the sticky toffee pudding was great as well. Attentive service and fun menu with lots of choices. Tablecloths upstairs. A little more casual down. Great ambiance. Would go back for sure.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The staff was outstanding and personable. I remmend doing the price fix and try any one of the entrees for a small up charge. It's in the heart of broadway, lovely space, great eye candy.

Perfect choice for pre-theatre
The Open Table reservation was perfect. Our table was ready with a waiter available immediately. The service was prompt and friendly. The beer selection was good, and wines by the glass were reasonable. The best dish was the roast chicken with mashed potatoes, tender and delicious. We sat in the back dining room, where it was quiet. If you want more of a bar atmosphere, there are tables in the front.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for pre-show
Had a nice dinner before a show. Convenient location. Food was great and affordable. Wine was $10 per glass, so if you're having more than 2 glasses buy a bottle! Other wise it was great food, excellent service. Small but cozy and not too loud.

For all the 7:00PM curtain
For all the 7:00PM curtain times at the nearby theaters this restaurant is a real find. The service is excellent and makes every effort to get you to the show on time. The food is hearty and good.

Great pre show meal
Best Fish & Chips I've ever had. Came back after the show for the Sticky Toffee Pudding. Delicious!
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time there for lunch and it was excellent. Food was great and we had a pleasant time as always.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed a perfectly timed lunch. Eight women had a pleasant meal around a table, a variety of food was ordered. Salads, burgers, chicken all presented well, tasted fressh and very tasty. Coffee was hot enough, wine selection nice. Waiter was attentive. Will go back.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a great restaurant with terrific fast service. If you are seeing a show on Broadway, it is ideally located for ease to all major theaters.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was delicious!
We ate dinner here before seeing a broadway show, and it was a great find! We just happen to eat there on half-price steak night, and the 38 ounce t-bone was great. Sides were great as well. We will be back when we visit NYC again in the future.

Great lunch at Angus' Cafe Bistro!
We had a great lunch at Angus' Cafe Bistro. The service was excellent. Our waitress was pleasant and very efficient. The lunch was very good, and the desserts were excellent. The pecan pie and chocolate pudding with shortbread cookies were superb! Everything was served in a timely fashion. We were not rushed, and we still had plenty of time to make our matinee performance at a theater on W 41st Street. The ambience had a true "New York City" feel.

My one and only complaint
My one and only complaint in an otherwise stellar experience was the inexplicable wait for the check at the end of the meal. We had to eventually get up, put our coats on, and walk up to the bar to have the waiter notice us and go get our tab. This is a restaurant that caters to the theatre crowd so I was surprised they weren't more mindful of the time. That's never happened to me there before. Hopefully it was a one time slip up. Up until that point everything was perfect. The service, food, and the bartender, Rick, who is a treasure!! I've been coming there for years and will continue for many more.

This restaurant was perfect
This restaurant was perfect for my group of nine theater goers. The location was great for us to quickly enjoy a meal together and walk to the show. The food was delicious! 2 of us had the mussels, several people had burgers and other enjoyed the $19 prix fix dinner. Everyone said their meal was good. I would go to Cafe Angus Bistro again during my next visit to Broadway!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
$19 pre theatre is very good value for money although a bit skimpy.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for out or patio dining
Great selection of food and drinks, very friendly staff and enough privacy for your group.
10/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Find in Midtown Manahttan
With out a doubt the best place in Midtown to grab a quick bite before your show. Frendly service and great food. What more could you want.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Nice restaurant- good location
Pre theater special= very small portions.
From sit down to dinner served= 10 minutes. Bill paid and out the door in 45 minutes.
Upstairs dining room was loud and crowded.
Bottom line- location is close to all theaters, but we were rushed.

I'm a frequent patron of Angus' Cafe Bistro. I like the casual atmosphere and the food. Whether I'm there for a drink at the bar or for a meal, I've never been disappointed. The staff is friendly and accommodating and I've always been satisfied with my choices from the menu. I think I like the cozy atmosphere as much as my meal--I feel at home there. The restaurant is right across the street from Phantom of the Opera (one of my favorite shows) and I just enjoy the location. A dining experience is more than the meal--it encompasses the location of the restaurant and its ambiance plus the services of its staff. I think Angus fulfills all criteria for a pleasant dining experience.

Dinner at Angus' Cafe Bistro -
We've eaten at Angus' many times over the last
10 years and have never been disappointed.

Mussels & salad, my husband had the salmon & our

GreaLocation and not a Tourist Trap
Very convenient to Times Square and the theatre district. Menu was relatively limited but the food was good as was the service. We went for after theatre dinner and liked it enough to return for lunch the next day. The Spicy Conch Chowder is splendid!

Great service, great food,
Great service, great food, very accommodating. Had a birthday party of 13, everyone was very friendly & helpful. Food came out quickly and was really tasty. Brought out dessert with a candle so we could all sing happy birthday. I will recommend your establishment to my friends in NYC and to the many people I know who travel down to see a show!

Great theatre district location. Not crowded. Awesome burgers.

Wonderful dinning experience
I chose this restaurant for my niece's birthday because she is a big fan of the Phantom of the Opera and the restaurant is across the street from Majestic Theatre. The restaurant is an absolutely beautiful place and that staff most professional and friendly! I asked for a table overlooking the Phantom and they gave it to us and, later, our waiter brought the dessert with a candle for my niece at the end he sang with us. The food was great and the service impeccable. What a wonderful experience. Highly recommend to all.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
This bistro is tucked into a small alley on 46th Street. Food was great. We sat upstairs so noise was not a factor. Everyone was congenial and pleasant. Great Market Salad and great fun.

NYC Theatre District Ideal
Located right across the street from "Phantom," Angus Cafe Bistro is an unpretentious little restaurant with a lively ambiance and a very good casual food menu. Their "Midtown Picnic" on the Special Menu was a delight: a big plate of tasty pate, ham, olives, crusty bread, melting butter and more. Young, cool theatre-wannabe staff is friendly and effecient.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great location central to theater district. Reliable, interesting menu; superb service makes the experience enjoyable, and if you're headed to a show they make sure you get out on time. Excellent, friendly and efficient service, beautiful decor and ambiance. Our favorite for large & small gatherings in theater district.
