- Not intimidatingSongbirdDined on 9/14/2014It has an upscale menu without the feeling of intimidation...Special Features:
- Disaster EveningAvonHostVIPDined on 9/10/2014We arrived at the restaurant to be advised that they were not going to honor our reservation, but they would let us have a table when next available. Thank you for letting us cut the line. That is not what a reservation is for. Once seated we waited a long time for a waitress to appear. She took our drink orders and then disappeared. 15 minutes later, no drinks yet, another person arrived to take our dinner order. We advised her that we had not yet received our cocktails. She said they were made (she did not advise us why , if they were ready, they were not delivered to us). Finally dinner arrived. The food was up to the restaurants usual standards, but the service was so poor it took the edge off of the evening. Disappointing
- living from the pastitaliascottsdaleVIPDined on 9/1/2014This place was once great, now just average. And time they change the menu. Not going backSpecial Features:
- WonderfulOpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 8/28/2014Always our first stop in NY....Try the burger and tuna two ways!Special Features:
- Great variety on menuMississippiFanDined on 8/28/2014The plethora of choices caused us to order too much food....not the fault of the restaurant ! Best items were the fried oysters and the hamburger sliders. Lobster hush puppies were disappointing.Special Features:
- one of my fave spots!!!obsessedwithfoodDined on 8/28/2014the food never disappoints......always delicious! Lots of hustle and bustle but the energy is great!! So much to see and explore when you are there!! Go !!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- terrible experienceGordonVIPDined on 8/22/2014The four of us had a variety of different foods from the disparate stations. All of it, with one exception, was virtually inedible. Give it a miss.
- Major deterioration in QualitySAY24Dined on 8/19/2014This used to be a destination restaurant, with interesting, freshly prepared food, and we went there frequently. Last night, the menu was smaller and the food very disappointing. we ordered the sushi and Pizza we used to order with items no longer on the menu, and both were mediocre at best. The pizza was made with cheap commercial tomato sauce rather than the fresh sauce I remember, and tasted like fast food pizza. My companion complained that his sushi rolls were very disappointing as well. When I asked what happened, I was told the Plaza bought the restaurant from the original owner and is now managing it. Clearly other diners feel the same way as the place was unusually empty. Terribly disappointing - we will not go there again.
- Awesome Food!jml05003VIPDined on 8/14/2014We went to walk around and try Todd English at the Plaza during restaurant week and it was awesome. The food was so delicious - we had the lobster hush puppies, popcorn shrimp cobb taco, eggplant flatbread and the goat cheese stuffed ravioli. I can't wait to go back and try more dishes.Special Features:
- Great last minute findAlexDined on 8/13/2014Was fighting the crowds at the Apple store while my daughter was buying a phone and having it setup when we decided at the last minute to go for dinner and searched on Tripadvisor. The Food Plaza did not disappoint.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Judy555VIPDined on 8/9/2014Plenty of varieties to choose. We had cuisine from the seafood section, halibut and salmon... quite nicely done. Enjoyable causal atmosphere with fine food. Dessert a little lacking, better choices from the concession outside the dining food hall.Special Features:
- Always a fun experience...DcerngDinrVIPDined on 8/5/2014The maitre de could not have been more accomodating honoring my seating request of table for two and he told me menus had just been changed and I might not find my favorites. Sadly my salmon burger was one of the casualties. I opted for the veggie burger...It was very bland and disappointing. Instead of a yummy multigrain roll--the portobello mushrooms sandwiched in the red pepper and squash. If you are on a diet this is the perfect option. My prawn cocktail was delcious and my husband raved about the duck and sushi. Our walnut apple pie was decadently delicious. There is a wide variety to choose from. I would just not highly recommend the veggie burger which needs some imaginative retooling.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Todd English disappointshefroDined on 8/2/2014This is a tourist trap not worthy of Manhattan-overly expensive,poor service and the food is passable at best. I would not recommend this place to anyone
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 7/31/2014Service was slow but cordial very noisy but kind of adds to the ambiance but you need to be prepared for that noise. The food Asian Salad was not special just average the steamed duck buns were very tasty.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Never again.when2dineDined on 7/25/2014With a restaurant associated with Todd English I was fully expecting an excellent, what my party and I got was far from that. To start the restaurant must have issues with their central air. The ambience was killed by how hot and humid the restaurant was. Service was awful... Everyone in a party of four received their meals (appetizers included) at different times. When they messed the dessert order up though, they were kind enough to bring a new dessert, which after how awful everything else went, it was quite shocking. The food.... probably one of the worst meals I have ever had. The pasta "sauce" was more like pasta soup. To add to how awful it was it had zero flavor. Chicken was dry and pizza soggy.
- Quick and Fun VarietyParisPoodleVIPDined on 7/22/2014The place is fine--great for a quick simple lunch. I wish the people manning the registers (or monitors or whatever they're intently punching all the time and never look up from) at the front would lose their attitude. Each time I've been there, they act so haughty--as if. Really? Too busy and important to smile at your customers? Also, the last time I was there, I was told the restaurant wasn't open and to stand waiting--even though I had arrived 2 minutes late for my reservation. That's okay--I'm patient--but not a single pleasant "sorry"? Why so curt lady? Are these people mean because nobody ever tips them?Special Features:
- A sinking shipDefuniakVIPDined on 7/21/2014TE expanded so rapidly or the initial staff he hired is no longer there because the food and the service have suffered horribly. Servers are slow, forgetful, not knowledgeable about the menu. The food used to be amazing but now it's quite bad; expensive, awful tourist-fare. The ingredients are no longer fresh and top of the line and it shows - however, the prices remain the same. I've given this place so many chances and it keeps getting worse so shame on me. Never again. Please note that this is for the restaurant portion of the Food Hall - I am not commenting on the individual food kiosks.
- Wonderful way to start a NYC tripGLA2014Dined on 7/12/2014We had a wonderful dining experience for lunch. Delicious food with great variety.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not Happy!OpenTable Diner Since 2012VIPDined on 7/5/2014I chose this restaurant is that I had a very large Fairmont gift card. This restaurant is located at the Plaza Hotel, a Fairmont operated hotel. I called the restaurant weeks in advance to ensure that i could use the gift card and was told that it was no problem. Upon receiving the check, i was told i could not use the card. I asked for a manager and then was told he was to busy to meet with me as it was Saturday night. I was furious. Notwithstanding, the ambiance was neat. The food was also good. The problem here is the organization. Since the server is obtaining food from different food stations, it is extremely chaotic and unorganized. Our food was misdelivered to the table next to us on 3 occasions. Overall - UNHAPPY!
- Very averageLouisianagirl47Dined on 6/25/2014A friend recommended this to us. We had a great morning in Central Park and came here for lunch. We were a bit disappointed. Food was very average. We had to ask waitress for refills on drinks. Expected more from a restaurant in Plaza Hotel.Special Features:
- DisappointedGabyDined on 6/20/2014I have visited The Todd Engkish 5 times and the last two times the quality of the food and service have been disappointed. I asked for tacos and they were insipid, the fish was acceptable but not for the price. The service was slow, and the waiter didn't listen to me at all. I won't come back anymore.Special Features:
- TremendousRobbyVIPDined on 6/20/2014Was bustling for lunch. Been here for dinner and also very, very good. A+Special Features:
- YummersDined on 6/15/2014I've been here before with my two- year old and have always had a wonderful time, unfortunately this wasn't one- two adults and a toddler were seated at a cocktail table for dinner. At any one time we could have only one platter in front of us and that made eating cumbersome, we ultimately resorted to combining the ordered items into one plate so as not to wait for the servers to come around a second time. Either the place was overbooked (which is odd since one side of the dining space was shut) and/or under-staffed but we were left feeling like we were waiting foreverSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- UniquePhilCDined on 6/6/2014Takes the food court concept at you local mall to a new level. Clever idea with outstanding food. I was able to get sushi and my wife had tacos at the same restaurant.Special Features:
- No cheese for you!QBEBDined on 6/5/2014While I love TE because there is something for every appetite and palate on the menu...I have been increasingly disappointed that certain stations, particularly the cheese and charcuterie are not always available. On a busy Thursday night when it appeared that they were using every section of the dining room, the cheese station was not available. You would think that would be the easiest station to staff. We shared a few things including the filet salad, and all were yummy, but I was still disappointed because I went planning on getting the cheese plate.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- 1234Dined on 5/31/2014My only recommendation is to that I will ask for a table with regular size chairs - other chairs are to high....Special Features:

- Excellent spot near Central ParkRaymondDined on 5/23/2014Good food, good service and very relaxed. Its high quality, subterranean atmosphere gives it an escape-like feel. Fun.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- What a find!!!mamesbabesVIPDined on 5/16/2014What a wonderful experience from A to Z. The wonderful maitre d', the amazing food and the great service. Cannot wait to go again!Special Features:
- Noisy, uncomfortable and slow!SFfoodieVIPDined on 5/10/2014Made a mistake coming here. Seating was on barstools; noise level ferocious. Service appallingly slow. Food was just so-so, and not worth the misery we had to endure to eat it. So much for eating at the Plaza! Ugh.
- A Secret at the Plaza !gourmetgoddess1VIPDined on 5/2/2014Love this place. So many choices, so many decisions. The duck appetizers were to die for ! And, don't forget the Filet Mignon Sliders ! Fun ! Fun ! Fun !Special Features:
- Poochie1Dined on 5/2/2014My Sister was here on vacation I thought it would be very exciting to take her there. I was very disappointed with the food and service. Very expensive for what we ordered definitely would not return.Special Features:
- Maybe for lunchOpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 4/26/2014From the moment we sat down for our evening reservation, they were cleaning up the place and shutting down. It was a terrible customer experience, and they should stop taking reservations well before the clean up needs to begin. I have also been here for lunch and did not have this same experience which is why I think there may still be hope during that time. Food is delicious but if you feel like you are being rushed and cannot have a cappuccino with your dessert because they already cleaned the machine and shut down, you do not want to come back no matter how good the food tastes.
- Excellent Food!njsmfoodiesDined on 4/19/2014Our Todd English Food Hall experience was terrific! The menu offers many choices for all and our waiter and server were great! Depending on what you order, items do come out at different times, but this made our dining experience more enjoyable! The various foods that we ordered were delicious and some of the items were perfect for sharing. We would definitely return here in the future!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Terrible spotHard2pleaseVIPDined on 4/18/2014After much research, we booked Todd English for our first Mel in NYC. I'm not sure by we even booked as we had the worse table in the house, by the sushi bar where the servers picked up the food. Service and food was lacking. Our server didn't see us for over 15 min and seemed uninterested in our questions. We had the linguine vongole, Parmesan fries and kale salad with plans to eat again elsewhere too. The pasta was underdone with l,ost no flavour. That was promptly returned. The salad over salty. The mos unforgivable part was the incredibly shoddy service we received from the hosts and servers. Will never go to a Todd English restaurant again.
- Great experienc but...LisaNYDined on 4/18/2014...watch the wine prices. Imagine my surprise when I was chargred $21 for one glass!Special Features:
- Great no fuss place for dinnerAustin143Dined on 4/15/2014We went for dinner here as we had just gone to th food plaza tha opening for breakfast and it was great. We sat at the bar for dinner and both had burgers but there was a huge check of different foods. So would definitely go here if everyone wants something different to eat. Great service and different cocktails.Special Features:
- Great group experienceLindaDined on 4/13/2014Went with a group while in the City. Chosen for it's menu-something for everyone. Service was great and very responsive to requests. We would go again just to be able to sample more of the menu.Special Features:
- Service without a smileMunchmunchVIPDined on 4/11/2014What would have been a superb time was marred by the surely condescension of our waiter. He also neglected to add the Parmesan cheese to our meal, was slow to come by the table, and lacked the personal welcome and attitude we'd have expected of this delightful food hall. We shall return, hoping that we get a different wait staff person.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The food hall has been a favoriteOpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 4/10/2014The food hall has been a favorite of mine for several years. The menu is always changing, with delicious choices, the wine list is superb and extensive. However the past serval visits the service has been poor. The waiter forgetting to bring drinks or food. Clearing the table prior to asking if we were done. Rushing us out. If the food wasn't so good not sure I'd go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
