    I've been here twice now as a pre-theater (Lincoln Center) meal. The salads were very good, both times, and our wine was good, too. They could improve on cleaner cutlery and taking better care with takeout orders and doggie bags. Earlier this year I picked up a medium bison burger takeout here. Online ordering didn't work for me via my mobile device so I phoned in for it. But when I returned to my office, I found it more rare to medium rare, and too late to remedy. Two other picky notes: the silverware was not clean in my last visit. And while it was still good, the half-salad I took home with me was not accompanied by the dressing and therefore disappointing.

    It was a family affair and my fussy family just loved it. Especially the crowd and the waiter put up with the fussy people.

    I have eaten in my share of dinners....!?!? This place would rank in the middle of the list...!?!?! I'm NOT a food snob, but I'm trying to be honest...!?!? Breakfast or Lunch would be a better choice than Dinner...!?!?

    Found this place because it was near Terminal 5 where we were seeing a concert. Needed an inexpensive, unpretentious place that had great food and would be quick. This was it! Very casual, fun decor, perfect for a few beers and great munchy-food. Bathrooms were small but clean. Will definitely go back!

    I dined there on an early Tuesday night before the theatre, and sat at an outdoor table. There were a few people at the bar, and not much activity as it was early, but I had to signal several times for the waitress to take my order and bring me my food and the check...she was clearly not interested in getting things done. However, my salad was delicious and the ambiance seemed like it would be very popular later in the evening or on weekends.

    Visiting NY (from VA) with my parents (former NY'ers) and kids (11 & 13 year old boys, never been to NY before), and my 11 year old is a very picky typical 'kid' eater, while my 13 year old is more adventurous, AND my dad keeps kosher but will eat out if there are vegetarian/fish/dairy options. Searched for a last-minute place to eat that would suit everyone and Route 66 definitely fit the bill!! The food and service was outstanding. And our server was very attentive and accommodating - my iphone was in desparate need of charging and she set it up to charge for me near the bar.
