A word from Seven Bistro
Seven is a rare find in the neighborhood, located in the heart of Manhattan, steps away from New York’s Penn Station, Madison Square Garden & the Fashion District offering a modern twist to classical dishes, warm hospitality & personalized service.

We’re ‘casual dining’ rather than ‘fine dining’ but that doesn’t mean our quality & service should be any less. We believe we’ve found the right balance with a passionate kitchen team & a charming front of house team along with a service ethos centered squarely on ensuring your experience with us is a great one.

    Descent place to eat in the middle of the pub district. It's so hard to find a nice restaurant to eat normal food when you're not in the mood for finger foods and/or a burger. The wait staff was courteous and attentive, while at the same time friendly. After reading some negative reviews I was pleasantly surprised and would go back to Seven anytime.

    I met a friend here for dinner after work and was pretty disappointed by my main dish; however, the service and drinks were lovely. The bar/lounge area was really the only interesting part of the restaurant. We were seated in the back by the kitchen which wasn't ideal. We ordered the lamb appetizer and I was pleasantly surprised with it. It had great flavor and I really enjoyed it. I ordered the homemade cavatelli as my main course which was unfortunately one of the worst things I have ever eaten. The bacon in this dish was too thick, tough and it just tasted old. The sauce was also a lot heavier than I expected. Maybe I just ordered wrong, but I won't be returning, unless it's just for a drink at the bar.

    Will definitely go back to try other options on the menu. It's a small and intimate setting so dinner was a relaxing and enjoyable experience. The wait staff were polite and unobtrusive and knew just when to stop by. I would highly recommend this place.

    This was the second time visiting Seven Bistro. The first time I had an amazing meal but this time the chicken in my Bistro Chicken Salad was so dry it was inedible. The Tuna Scallop burger was good, but not as good as the first time. The service was good but my friend and I wanted to share the two dishes and the kitchen wouldn't split them for us. How hard is it to cut a burger in half in the kitchen? It is certainly easier to do in the kitchen with a big knife than at the table but they wouldn't do it. Seems like a minor thing they could have done to make us happy. I would go to this restaurant again though, especially since it is near my office which is in a neighborhood with a dearth of good places to have lunch.

    This was a sweet find in the Fashion District that has a nice selection of appetizers and drinks and date-worthy ambience; quiet and comfortable. The lamb popsicles and potstickers were especially good as were the moderately portioned desserts. Service was attentive and very helpful.

    I though the French Onion soup and Veg Risotto were ok but the Bang Bang Shrimp and Calamari both had NO flavor. I was impressed the restaurant held our reservation for a half hour because we were stuck in traffic. The location is great for a drink if you are going to a show at MSG.

    I did expect more tapas offerings They have almost no gluten free options if your vegetarian The kale salad that I looked forward to on the menu was not presoaked at all just hard kale on a plate with dressing. For the price of it I expected it would have been prepared correctly My daughter did love the fries Small portions for price. Should definitely offer more tapas type meals and do a two for a set price

    I was excited to try Seven Bistro, as I'm often looking for a decent restaurant near Penn Station/MSG. I was disappointed with my visit. The food was average in quality. We enjoyed the chicken potstickers and the salmon and tuna tartare, but our entrees of cavatelli and a steak sandwich were nothing special. Perhaps it would be best to stick with the small plates. We were seated in the upstairs dining room, which I found to be cramped and incredibly noisy. Our server tried very hard, but there were a few service miscues. I wonder for whom they keep the intimate booths in the front of the restaurant reserved? Had we sat there, our experience probably would have been entirely different and much more enjoyable.

    I ordered the steak salad...I got a pile of arugala and 5 tiny slivers of steak. Even everyone at the table was confused as to why this $18 salad was so limited. I was pretty hungry and had to order an orange juice because my sugar dropped so much during the lunch meeting.

    We were looking for a place close to the Penn Station to meet a friend from out of town who was going back that night. We went for dinner on a Monday night. The place was not noisy which allowed us to talk. We ordered small plates (not tapas) to share and a bottle of wine. Food was ok and wine was very good. Overall, we enjoyed this place.

    A cool spot in a surprise location. Loved the chandeliers and champagne decor. Despite delays getting into the city the hostess accommodated us right away even though two members of our party arrived 20 minutes later. Delicious & light calamari appetizer, wonderful Mango Martinis, I think our party had one of very menu item and it was all very very good. Pan chicken especially good as was a great steak with a Lincoln log house o fries. I asked for a quiet table because we had business talk & got a perfect tucked away table that made it easy to hear & be heard. Desserts were tasty and the food was really very good. I loved this place and it's good for meat eaters and veggies alike. Good for lunch or dinner and location is excellent.

    I love this place. Nice menu, awesome white wine, ambiance is perfect and also a perfect location for upper chelsea/midtown lunch in a place that's not packed but conveniently located. 2 minor complaints: the hostess seemed like she could care less that there were people standing there waited to be seated - didn't even make eye contact - and it was difficult to get the attention of waitstaff to get drinks or refills or the check. On the other hand, the maître d' was really attentive and super nice. I feel like his employees need to get on the ball a little more.

    When I got to the restaurant, I was seated in the upstairs part of the restaurant at a table in the back corner with no light over it. I felt like I was a child being punished. I asked to move to another unoccupied table nearby with a light over it so that I didn't have to use the LED light on my iPhone to read the menu. I ordered the grilled swordfish entree and it was excellent. The rice and sauteed spinach that accompanied the seafood was delicious also. The service I received was pretty poor. My original waiter was slow to introduce himself and ask for my order. Another waiter brought out my entree, filled my drink, and gave me more bread. The original waiter ignored me until he asked if I wanted dessert and presented the check.
