Fantastic food and drinks. Went as a large group to celebrate a birthday & had an outstanding time. Loved the private outdoor seating area. Can’t wait to go back.

My wife and I needed a place to have a late lunch near Times Square and reserved a spot at Blue Dog the day before. Not only was the service exemplary, the Notorious D.O.G. burger was simply one of the best I have ever tasted! My wife had the Cheesus Christ burger w/Havarti and so enjoyed it that she wouldn't even give me a taste! Oh yeah, the drinks were great, as were the Parmesan fries! It was great getting back into the city after months of staying away, and The Blue Dog certainly helped make it an even better day!

We were very comfortable in this covered outdoor space that’s off the street and away from traffic and sidewalk strollers. Service was excellent and they did everything they could to make us feel safe. This is a great outdoor dining option for the Hell’s Kitchen area.

Best service and food!! Highly recommend. They went out of their way to bring us smoked salmon for a Benedict even though it wasn’t on the menu.

Food is great, smooth also. The table and chair though was not comfortable at all. We were 4 sitting at a high table, we couldn't even put out legs underneath the table, because the chair is too high. And no hooks to hang the bags. So, 100 points for everything that we've eaten, but lack in comfort.

The esplanade dining area was so pleasant even on a very warm evening with a wonderful breeze. It felt very European. The staff was so attentive and the food was creative and tasty and instagram worthy. It was beautifully lit, and the ambiance was so special that we could forget about the difficult times we are in. We were a table of 5 and it felt as if we had a private dinner party.

A perfect spot to dine outdoors while still retaining some sense of intimacy. And you are, for the most part, sheltered from the weather. Also, not so many passers-by. Recommended

Really nice menu, BUT THEN both my omelet and my friend's Benedict were dry and tasteless, as were potatoes that came with both orders.. Side of bacon stringy, dry, tough. And salad served with both dishes looked as if it had been dressed last night and left over.

Their outdoor seating area is very nice, and not subject to rain since it's in an outdoor mall type setting. It very much reminds me of a couple of restaurants in Amsterdam. The service was great, and they took care to make sure we were comfortable with the distance from other tables, offering us an option to move further away.

Our reservation was just the other day and during the COVID-19 pandemic. The staff were very professional, maintained all required social distancing, had their masks on, and sat us outdoors 6 feet from any other table. The food was delicious. It was wonderful to dine at a restaurant again, and this one was quite fine. Thank you!

This place is really cute...lovely lighting and ambiance. The food is good; and the service was very good. However, the tables are so close together that anytime one of our "neighbors" wanted to get in or out, we had to physically move our table ourselves. This should not happen and was not necessary. If the "powers that be" just had one less table along the banquette, guests would be able to enjoy their experience without interruption. I appreciate the fact that you want to make more money, but at what cost? Why do that to guests and risk their not coming back?

we've eaten here several times, both pre- and post-theater. Service has always been attentive and quick. The food is great - burgers cooked properly, salads fresh and seasonal. Drinks are good, too - the usual mid-town prices, though. Only drawback is that it's a small space and can feel a little cramped if you're not one of the super-thin.

Decent pre-theater option in Times Square, though our table was 10 minutes late and since the restaurant was so small we had to wait on a staircase next to the door while it was 30 degrees out.

I was dining alone while on a business trip and this place was recommended to me by the hotel. I arrived right after the theatre rush, which was perfect. I sat at the bar, had a unique caesar salad - made with kale and shredded brussel sprouts - topped it with salmon, which was cooked perfectly.

The restaurant is small which is part of its charm. It is apparently known for their brunches but I was not in NY long enough to check it out.

We found it as a last minute option nearby but it blew away our expectations! A quant restaurant with fantastic food and service. The vibe was romantic and chilled and we would definitely go again. We wished we discovered it earlier so we could have gone twice. Definitely our favourite meal in NYC. Would recommend to everyone.
