    Great experience. Brought my work team here to celebrate. The 15 of us deserved some appreciation, so we went to Ted's for lunch. The service, the food and the overall experience was great. Heidi also did a great job setting everything up and was accommodating to our needs. We'll definitely be back!

    I vie been there a few times and the service was horrible. The orders were wrong, the waitress never came back to the table during the meal so we couldn't ask for drinks. Then she had an attitude when we asked for water. The restaurant was not busy during this time so there was no excuse for this behavior.

    I was looking for someplace in the Times Square area that wasn't going to "break the bank" before my movie - what a great find! The staff is friendly and accomodating; the menu is manageable (not 50 pages long) and had enough choices to make my party totally happy - the food was wonderful and the cost was great. Not much more I ask for in a resturant - they knock it out of the park

    Ted's used to be a reliable place for good burgers and large portions, but it has made some hard-to-explain menu changes in the past few weeks. The service has always been spotty—food is very slow to arrive—but it just seems to get worse; you have that terrible feeling once you've ordered that you've been completely forgotten. Requests like asking for water or condiments are happily accepted but never fulfilled. And good luck trying to find your waiter once the food has arrived...you become an afterthought the second that plate hits the table. Finally, here's a weird thing about Ted's: It's always cold—temperature-wise. A waiter told me that it's because they don't control the heat, but when it's cold outside, it's cold inside.

    I try and visit Ted's when I am in the city from Philadelphia. The beef is the best cuts but I love the selection of Bison that is on the menu. The sides are always top notch and fresh. Servers know how to make you feel at home. Also ask for the Theater Prefix Menu. It's a GREAT deal

    Look, it's a chain. A nice one, but still a chain. Our food was good (far from great), and the setting kind of old school clubby with lots of wood. Our waitress was indifferent, and the noise level was maybe a bit loud for a less than half-full restaurant on Monday at lunch hour. If you need a relatively inexpensive place for a business lunch, this is a good bet.

    We have choosen this place by random seeking for a different steak experience - the bison filet was very tasty, grilled to perfection (medium) and came with a delicious farmer salad! Although the place was a bit noisy and not fully booked our waitress took truly care of us and made a true difference! Wine list was good, mid price range a bit too short. A place of great experience and definitely worth to be recommended.

    Bad experience. Our server was rude, did not refill our drinks or check on us. My steak was medium rare when I had requested well done so had to send it back. My baked potato was cold on arrival so had to send it back. Potato was still cold the second time. Will not ever go here again.

    Everything about our experience at Ted's Montana Grill was awesome. The food, the hostess, the wait staff, the pricing, and the ambiance was excellent. My sister and I were in NYC for the weekend and Ted's Montana grill was the best dining experience of our entire stay. This was our first time eating at Ted's Montana Grill and we will be sure to return on our next visit.

    Love Ted's; one of my favorites for lunch or dinner when I am in Midtown but on last visit had relatives in from Italy and our Filet Mignon's (Beef) were a bit fatty. Not what I expected from Ted's. A bit of a disappointment.

    This was my third visit to Ted's and the second time this year. My past two visits were great but this last one left me disappointed. We had a 5 o'clock pre-theatre reservation for a party of six. Upon our arrival we were the only diners there. The host asked if we had a reservation to which I told him we did. He began to go to the reservation log but then changed his mind and proceeded to seat us. He never asked the name for the reservation. I later learned that Open Table had my reservation listed as a no show which obviously wasn't the case.Although the restaurant was empty upon our arrival,we were seated by the Servers station and we were in earshot of staff hanging out at the station using some profanities and other colorful language.

    This is the second time I've been to Ted's. The food was great, but our waiter was just okay...not that attentive, and the maitre de had a bit of an attitude. I'd definitely go back because my second experience was very different from my first experience and the food is really good. The prices are reasonable, too.

    Due to traffic we had less than an hour to eat before the Broadway show we had come to see began. We explained our situation to the hostess who relayed our concerns to our waitress. She guided us through the menu to choose items that could be prepared quickly. Our drinks and meal came very quickly and were absolutely delicious. Great food and great service!

    We have been to Ted's Montana Grill on several occasions and the food was always good. We took advantage of the "pre-theater" menu for a set price of $29 which included everything. Was surprised though, when our waitress said she had to see our tickets for the play. But the food and service was great and we were done in plenty of time.

    Food is quite good for what it is. Bison short ribs and bison burgers are very good and healthier than beef. Veggie burger is excellent (although despite the menu saying "choice of cheese," they charge extra for blue cheese). Service was efficient. Good pre-theater spot.
