About

Seven is a rare find in the neighborhood, located in the heart of Manhattan, steps away from New York’s Penn Station, Madison Square Garden & the Fashion District offering a modern twist to classical dishes, warm hospitality & personalized service.

We’re ‘casual dining’ rather than ‘fine dining’ but that doesn’t mean our quality & service should be any less. We believe we’ve found the right balance with a passionate kitchen team & a charming front of house team along with a service ethos centered squarely on ensuring your experience with us is a great one.

Beautiful setting (love the big chandeliers) but casual. My friend and I just had burgers, which were great! Service was quick and friendly and the booths allowed for quiet conversation. Great place by Penn to meet up that's a step above A pub

I normally score this restaurant much higher but o the rigatoni was cold and tasteless. Ordinarily this is a surprising gem in a neighborhood without many great choices.

My husband and I returned a second time to Seven Bistro because it was convenient to our hotel and we had such a good experience the first time. Except for the noise level at the beginning of our meal, we were not disappointed. I had the rigatoni with sausage and roasted red peppers in a basil cream sauce while my husband had the grilled roasted chicken accompanied by vegetables and potatoes. Both dishes were delicious and it was nice to share a sample of each. Happily, the noise level went down as an earlier crowd drifted out and we enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant and a quiet conversation. We will make it a point to come back the next time we are in New York.

I made a reservation for 6 for a late afternoon lunch after my commencement ceremony. I requested to be seated on the main level due to the fact that I would be with my elderly parents who have trouble with stairs. There were able to accomodate accordingly which was greatly appreciated. One member of my party arrived about an hour in advance of the reservation and they were still able to sit her at the table to wait for the rest of us.

The restaurant's main level is relatively small and the 3 larger party tables are right by the open kitchen, but this was not a huge problem at all - not overly smokey or unbearably warm like you would expect. The waiter was extremely patient, accomodating, and friendly. The food was tasty - we ranged from the french onion soup to the Seven burger to the cod and potatoes - it was all good.

I would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for something in the MSG area!

Nothing really special about this place. Weird happy hour hours from 2-5pm then after 9pm. Plates are very expensive and, as usual in NYC, very small portions. The chicken was unflavorful and bland. Service was inconsistent. It is very hard to find a decent meal near Penn station.

Good restaurants in the neighborhood of Penn Station (NYC) are very rare. This is always my choice when I am coming to the city by train just to meet friends for lunch or dinner. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is pleasant, and the waiters and waitresses don't rush you if you want to linger. I particularly recommend the burrata (spelling?)--the best I have ever eaten.

We dined at Seven Bistro, in part, due to its proximity to Penn Station, where options are limited. We had a 7 p.m. reservation and were seated promptly in the upstairs portion of the restaurant. Unfortunately, it was on a night when the Rangers were playing at MSG (they happen to be playing the Islanders). Until shortly before game time, the restaurant was crammed (I think they stuck in an extra table or two) and way too noisy to have a conversation. By 7:45, it was appreciably better. Be forewarned.

I found the place to be clean and inviting. The appetizers and main course was delicious. I would not recommend the chocolate cake. We ordered the cake to celebrate a birthday we found the cake to be dry and tasteless. It was not made that day. But the whipped cream was delicious. Nice drink menu and friendly staff. I would go back for dinner and some where else for desert

We made a reservation and went to the restaurant only to find out that they decided to close without notifying us of their decision. I traveled to New York City to dine at this restaurant for a special occasion, and it took this one bad customer service experience to never make me want to go to this restaurant ever in the future.

Place was very convenient to the gardens but service was slow, the food was inconsistent and below average and worst part was that we sat upstairs and with the kitchen below with fumes and smoke rising, we left with our clothes/coats smelling like an greasy grill.
