    I admittedly ate here because it reminds me of my trips to Hawaii and eating at the Tommy Bahamas restaurant there. This certainly was not the same and the prices are a little more expensive than usual, but I did enjoy coming here and feeling a little more laid back about living in Manhattan. Drinks are strong. It does remind me of a chain restaurant in many ways, but it did have neat views of Manhattan and I enjoyed being surrounded by plants and mentally thinking I was in Hawaii.

    I was pleasantly surprised by my experience. I was expecting a heavily tourist/shopping crowd but found the opposite. There were many business people which made the busy restaurant a place where I would have a business lunch and not have to yell to be heard. The food came piping hot and it was delicious. I will definitely come back.

    Tommy Bahamas is centrally located on Fifth Ave. and 45th St. Great food and service. Try the coconut martini or other unique tropical drinks. Awesome dessert list from key lime pie to butterscotch pudding with choc syrup to vanilla bean/pineapple creme brûlée. This popular place can be noisy, depending how full it is. Ask to sit in the back. Also, they often have a singer near the upstairs bar. Often they are mediocre and just add to the noise level. Try to choose a less popular time or day to go, but go!

    We returned on Monday to find the restaurant a bit quieter but lively with several groups and a different music scene which we liked better. The food is always good, fresh, simply but interestingly prepared. I always get the Bungalow Salad and wish I could eat that every day. I got adventurous and ordered the veggie burger which is house-made, primarily black bean and brown rice on a lovely toasted brioche bun with perfectly ripe avocado and good tomatoes. They forgot the fries at first but quickly brought out a basket of better than average, perfectly cooked French fries. We are becoming kind of regulars here and had a nice conversation with Chris the manager who clearly is passionate about the mission of the place-great food and service.

    It was nice to find a upscale restaurant, with great food and a great atmosphere that's also kid friendly. I wanted to celebrate my wife's birthday but also bring the baby who's birthday was only a few days prior. The food and staff were great. I also liked the extensive cocktail menu.

    This could be a great restaurant - the food was excellent, the service very attentive and the decor very plesant. But it was spoiled by the excessive noise from the downstairs bar area and the band. We couldn't hold a conversation because of the noise. Also we felt a bit rushed as the staff delivered the main course while we were still finishing the starters. Please address this and then we will definitely come back!

    The food was quite good, on the expensive side, the feta cheese was missing from our salads, which was shown as one of the main ingredients...they said they were out of feta, so they brought parmasan, not quite the same. And there was also supposed to be avacado, which was not really visable, but the manager brought some extra to our table. Only one cracker was served with the salad. But all in all the taste was good, although the salad was about $20 for lunch. The desserts looked decadent, and the chocolate cake was scrumptious. The restaurant itself was very attractive, but definitely on the noisy side.

    This is a favorite spot of ours particularly pre-theater. It is close enough to the show without being a tacky restaurant row joint. The coconut shrimp were crisp, fresh, perfectly cooked.macadamia crusted snapper is sinfully delicious. Our server Anthony was friendly & professional.since we come here so often Chris the manager very generously comped our appetizers. The singer in the bar area was again a little off key, too loud, and annoying but everything else is wonderful.skews a little touristy but we live in Manhattan and can choose to go just about anywhere yet we find this place to be one of our very favorites. Thank you Chris. See you soon.

    Going to Tommy Bahama Resturant is like being on an island for a few hours. You can kinda transform relaxation in those cozy booths with the great pillows. Dine on almost anything from appetisers to main dishes, they are very good and destintive. The crab bisque is worth repeating and I have. The drinks are very good too. The bahama mama is a favorite. The service is very couteous,swift and accomodating. No problem for special requests. The ambience is low key with appropriate live music on Saturday nite. I found it very relaxing and will definately return again with my girlfriends.

    Some dishes were good, others were so so. The ahi poke Napoleon - flat bread was stale, not good enough to order again The coconut shrimp - a lot of people like it but I didn't find it to be phenomenal. It wasn't bad. The ahi tuna taco - also ok but not memorable and would not order again. The kona coffee crusted rib eye - I've had better but then this is not a steakhouse. The pineapple creme brûlée - yummy!

    We love Tommy's in Hawaii and we were cautious on the NYC location but are really happy we went. Menu and food were great, deserts were really good and service was attentive. Not quite the same as sitting on a lanai and watching the palm trees over dinner but had a great meal and glad we went to the NYC location

    Staff is always smiling, helpful, and attentive. Switched us to a quieter table away from the very loud live music. Even with this move, the live music is way too loud for dinner dining, the only negative aspect of this night there. Otherwise, the service, as mentioned, and the food was great.

    Our meal at this restaurant was a spontaneous, early dinner for my college age kids and I after touring Rockerfeller Center. It's up a wooden spiral staircase that leads to the restaurant with a nautical, carribean decor. Our waiter was enthusiastic, attentive and very knowledgeable when asked questions about the menu. The food took some time coming out even though the restaurant was almost empty. The kids liked their selections however the crab cakes I ordered as an entree were cold but I was starving so I didn't ask for them to be reheated.

    We had read reviews and thought this was a great choice for our visit to NYC with our 17 year old niece . At 9:15 on a Friday night , the restaurant was almost empty . It was so disappointing , although there was live music ! The service was fine , the food was very good but unfortunately, much of it was Just warm inspite of how empty it was. The mashed potatoes , with the very good pork tenderloin , were semi hard and getting crusty because they were sitting out at room temperature it seemed . A shame because if it was vibrant and the food was hot I would definitely recommend it

    We had a wonderful experience on Saturday night at Tommy Bahama. Girls night out with my sisters, daughter and nieces. Started with a Broadway play, dinner at Tommy Bahama's and then cocktails at a great roof top bar (recommended by our Tommy Bahama waiter and new friend Anthony). The atmosphere was perfect (bright, airy and comfortable), the food was delicious and Anthony took care of our every need. We will definitely come back again. Thank you Tommy Bahama for hiring good people who love their job and care about their customers. Five Stars!

    Nice Caribbean feel. Drinks were the highlight of the night for me with the food being secondary. Service was good. My server's dry humor was good for me, maybe not for everyone though. I asked for something not usually carried in house and they actually went out and got it for me to ensure I enjoyed my meal. I would go back just because of that and did I mention the drinks!
