    A friend of mine went to the restaurant in ATL, said the burgers were good. So we tried the one in NYC and the burger did not disappoint. The waitress (Elissa) was super sweet and the food was on point. The burger (Red Rock) was packed with so much flavor. I will be back for seconds!!

    I frequent Ted's in NYC and Atlanta when I travel. It's perfect for a business lunch, and an occasional biz dinner. But, the locations I frequent have very comfortable bars where I can eat SOLO. The food is always excellent and the service attentive. I only wish there was a Ted's in Ft. Lauderdale.

    The food is delicious and the service is excellent and friendly. Last reservation which I made was 10:30. I thought the theater would be over by 10:00. They close the kitchen by 11:00 but took great care of us. If you go, you can't get there later than 10:30. Wished that we could've gone before the theater! This was my second time there and will definitely go again!!!

    I have been here several times and I have never been disapointed. I really think this is a neighborhood gem because its neslted between rockafeller center and times square. There are several steakhouse located around and Ted's give you the amazing food for really half the price. The night I had a reservation they were offering a steak sauce with bourbon and bbq, simply delicious! I highly recommmed Ted's, go for the Ted's signature margarita!

  • Best bison burgers
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/28/2014
    I love this place. The location (near Times Square) is really convenient. I have been there several times for lunch. They offer high quality burgers for a reasonable price. I highly recommend the George Cadillac burger with bison meat. Yummy ! The service is good and the waiters always nice. It might take a while to be served though, and the restaurant can be loud at peak hours. But if you're not in a hurry and enjoy lively places, these might not even be negative points !

    The best part of the experience was the bison steak, it was trendier, moist and delicious. The specialty drink, Bufflo Run, I think it is called was also very good. Our server was excellent as well. The only complaint would be about the sides, the potatoes tasted like they came out a box and the brocolli was cold and flavorless.

    This place is worth your time and money. Great service and great food. The Bison is excellent---that's all we've sampled, but I can't recommend the place enough. Slightly more casual than some of your Manhattan steak houses, but still great food and atmosphere.

    I needed a place to host a business meeting for 10 people during lunchtime amid a national engineering conference offsite but close to the conference location. I chose Ted Montana's using Open Table because I've eaten at their Colorado Springs location several times and never had a bad experience. In midtown NY City, they nailed it. We were seated in a small room that fit the group size perfectly, and we were treated very well by the wait staff. Service was prompt and unobtrusive; the food was really good; and the cost was lower than expected. The whole experience was very enjoyable, and I'd like to thank Ted Montana's for taking the time to do it right.

    We visited this restaurant on a family weekend trip to NY. Food was very good, standouts were the meatloaf and bison burgers. Steak was well cooked but I've had more flavorful rib-eye. Staff was very friendly and very accommodating to our 9 and 4 year olds.

    Ted's Montana Grill is always a great choice for drinks or dinner in the Midtown area. Most other options are extremely expensive or pub type places. Sometimes the bar area can be a bit crowded after work; but once you're seated at a table it's spacious and the service is great.

    Other than the salad not being fresh, and the butter on the 14oz steak being salted, the food is very good. That's the only reason I rated it very good and not outstanding. It is kid friendly if they are well mannered. Great for special occasions and groups as they have a secluded family room. Great wine list and last but not least, they serve beef and bison! Definitely worth a try....

    Joined a former co-worker in town on business here on a Tuesday night. We were in the mood for steak but didn't want to spend a lot. He had the Bison Rib-eye and felt that it was slightly over cooked and a bit tough. I decided on the bison burger and enjoyed it. Drinks were good as well as salad and sides.

    I went to Ted's on a very cold day. We were seated in the main part of the dining room, not really near the door but in a path to it. It was very cold outside that day. For reasons I can't explain the door seemed to be open all the time, and the cold air just came rushing in. It was freezing; in fact, it was so cold that by the time the check came, my hands were shaking. Ted's is a good place, but I will never go there on a cold day again.

    Our family went to Ted's after a friend's recommendation to celebrate our daughter's 10th birthday. We were looking for something a little more upscale for the special occasion, but something that the kids would enjoy and would also not break the bank during their first trip to NYC. From the grilled shrimp appetizer to the Bison Ribeye, Crabcakes, Ted's Filet & Kids steak, everything was great! We topped it off with Wildberry Cheesecake, Hand-made Shakes & Sorbet. Our reservations were early enough (7:30pm) that the crowds were not bad at all. The service was very good and staff was friendly. The experience was great and the kids really enjoyed their "fancy" dinner!

    My wife and I dined at Ted's before taking in a recent performance at Radio City Music Hall. We shared onion rings and each had an entree salad that we could have shared, they were so large. The menu is not extensive, but I've enjoyed everything I've ever ordered at a Ted's. Our service was the best we had during our recent trip to NYC. Finally, it is literally around the corner from Radio City Music Hall, making it an ideal choice if you are attending a show there - no more than a 2 minute walk. And after having paid $94 for two cheeseburgers the previous evening at a local pub, this bill was significantly easier on the wallet!

    The place is very inviting and I saw a lot of people at the bar. We had such an amazing waiter and the food was not only yummy (I hadthe steak frites and my boyfriend had the bison) but it wad also big in portion. For dessert he had the brownie and and had a coojie and ice cream -so good!!. The only problem I had was the everytime the door opened I would get a burst of wind hitting me while I ate, which was chilly. Otherwise great restaurant.

    The restaurant is one block from the famed Radio City Music Hall,. This was our first experience at the restaurant and found it to be a reasonably priced steakhouse. We were fortunate to get a booth which added an air of romance to our special night. Our waitress was very pleasant and the service was excellent. I had the Bison Strip and my wife had the Filet of Beef. The sides were also good I recommend the baked potato and mushrooms. All I can say is that the restaurant was a pleasant surprise and made our night special. Thanks for a great experience

    Order was messed up twice. First we were served the wrong items. Second, we were charged $16 extra for mediocre wine that was supposed to be "featured". Finally, we didn't get one of the deserts we ordered. Had to get the waiter's attention to bring items that were standard on other tables, such as bread, butter, etc. Needed to have server adjust the bill for incorrect charges. Intentional?????

    Great food, cocktails and service. The little ones loved the sliders and the big people loved the bison burgers. It's crowded during lunch so get there noon sharp or u will have to wait. Love the ambiance, dark wood panel walls, enormous bison head and tin ceiling tiles set the tone for a relaxing visit. The servers are super friendly and the food came out within 10 minutes after our order.

    We went for my birthday after a show. The place was empty, but we were there fairly early. It was like 4:30-5:00 pm. The service was slow and not very friendly at all. I had the chicken and it had no flavor at all!! My daughter had the burger and said it was very good. My husband had the filet and said it was ok. They didn't have much of a dessert menu. It was my birthday and we were hoping for a little piece of chocolate cake to share, but no luck. As we were getting out coats to leave a man came over to ask the hostess if someone was ever going to come to take their order. He said they had been waiting for quite some time and no one had been over to even get a drink order started. Will not go back when in NY.
