    Dined on 4/10/2012
    As a regular for the last several months I have experienced a steady decline in the restaurant. The food has declined to basically a step above a diner, the service is slow at best and overall value for the dollar has dropped markedly. The initial buzz and experience was that of a high energy, interesting dining experience. Now it is just a more humdrum, quick stop for dinner - a good alternative to home delivery, but not by much. Disappointing to say the least.

    Dined on 4/1/2012
    How disappointing. Food was thoroughly mediocre; risotto and brussel sprouts both tasted reheated without any depth of flavor. All dishes came out at different times, so it is impossible to politely wait for other members of your table to get their food while still being able to eat yours while it's warm. I've had better meals from a package. As a New Yorker, perhaps I'm not the target audience for the Plaza Food Hall, and people just go there for the experience of being in the Plaza? Either way, Todd English should be ashamed to attach his name to this place.

    This is the third time we have been at the Food Hall and the first time we have been in the new section. We were seated promptly and the new section was pretty sparsely seated and not too noisy. The food was very good, as it has been during our previous visits. The main issue was the service. It took 10-15 minutes before our waiter made it to our table to offer drinks. Fortunately, it seemed to go better after that, but for a restaurant of this caliber which seems to be adequately staffed, that is just too long.

I had to wait another ten minutes, tofind out they were out of clams. The maitre d'h then proposed a cheese plate. He did not charge me for it and gave us two glasses of wine. It was a bad evening.

    Not what I had hoped though the food was good. We had an open table reservation and when we tried to add two more people to it (my daughter telephoned), they said they were booked. When we got there they had a completely open room because they had just had a big party and werent certain when it would end. So, they lost lots of bookings. Silly on their part. Too noisy in the end but the service was good and food interesting. Not sure I would go back.

    There always seems to be a problem when getting seated. Even now with a reservation always disorganized at front. Can't seem to figure out where to seat people. Now even more confusing with the new section. This just starts what should be a good experience on a bad note. Joe your cheese professional makes the best cheese platters of all the staff.

    I enjoyed it. It's a nice setting. Warm and cozy. We had a reservation and the hostess said she would go get us a good spot. It was very early and empty. She sat as at the side of the raw bar next to the sink. A chef was chopping seafood with a huge knife and it was a bit scary. We should have moved but didn't. I'm not sure why she would make a big fuss about these great seats and then give us obviously the worst seats in the house when it was empty. (And we had reservations).

The space is beautiful and lively and the fiod delicous however they've expanded the space and the staff seem to get a little overwhelmed at its busiest. That said I may not go back again on a Saturday night but will absolutely be back!!

    Great location in the basement of the Plaza Hotel, a little bit claustrophobic, but high energy. Good prices on food, especially for midtown. The menu was interesting, but the food itself not as tasty as we were hoping. All in all a good experience, but not sure I'd go back.

    The Plaza Foodhall is one of my favorite NYC food spots. The atmosphere is casual and energetic. It's great to go with picky friends since they have something for everyone! Some of my menu favorites are the TE Sliders, Greek Salad, Two Way Tuna Roll, and Shrimp Dumplings. Although I don't find most of their desserts as outstanding as the food, the CurlyCakes (cupcakes) are amazing and rival any of the cupcake shops in the city. Service is always great and the food is consistently good. I usually share things with the people I'm there with but always try to order one new thing each time! Bravo, Tood English!

    Better food and less commotion than Eatlay. Because the servers are constantly running the length of the room, service is slow and intermitmant. Still don't like sitting on bar stools for hours but overall it is very good food and since we had the time we could relax about the service. We ahd the mushroom pasta and the foie gras, as well as the tuna tacos and an argula salad. The carrot cake dessert was very nice. We will go here again.

    What a wonderful and cheery place to eat. There is tons of selection in terms of food and much of it is delicious. You have the benefit of having many different kiosiks but there is no need to get up. The restuarant has a knowledge staff who encourages sharing to make the most of the diverse selection. Think Eately but without the zoo.

    I've been here 3 times and the service is abysmal. Slow and fairly inattentive. There were 3 of us and our food all came out at different times. The 3rd person in our party was served about 10 minutes after the rest of us. They have some major kinks to work out here. None of the employees seem happy to be working here. The waitress didn't know the price of the specials she described.

    Overall this place is very disorganized. We had a lovely and hard-working waitress, but she had too many tables and so we were constantly looking for her before she was available to us. Drinks arrived slowly and were almost overrun by the arrival of food that arrived quickly and slowly, so the three of us we constantly out of sync as to what we were eating or drinking. There were several guys walking around wired for sound but it was never clear what they were doing - they were definitely not really helping - make'em waiters!! Food was good but we probably won't go back. They did comp a glass of wine that arrived AFTER I finished my main course. TOO LATE!

    Who would have thought there would be such a dynamic, well-run, enjoyable dining experience at the Plaza? After three visits, it is still a fun and exciting venue. Most recently had the duck gyro, which was superb. Flat breads are great, though the center can be soggy. Will keep going back.
