American
TGA, a brand-new restaurant concept, will be unveiled on the
ground floor. The destination restaurant will serve American fare with an inventive
twist offering dishes such as salmon crudo and brisket blend burgers. 12-foot glass garage
doors create an airy and posh atmosphere to compliment a neighboring
outdoor patio and beer garden that features a second full bar and retractable skylight
roof. Designed for year-round enjoyment, scrumptious food and imaginative mixology
pair with a lively vibe to enchant travelers and lure in locals. Boasting a very unique
seasonal indoor-outdoor dynamic, TGA aims to bridge the gap of the greatest
American generations through food, drinks, and experiential dining that Midtown NYC has been yearning
for.

The food was great and excellent service! The music is a little loud if you are trying to have a business meeting but it was a great experience overall.

The service was slow. We waited about 10 minutes before a drink order was taken. My biggest complaint is that the music was very loud. It suited a bar more than a restaurant. The food was good, but there are too many other places to try. It was interesting.

Staff was friendly but short handed. Took a while to get our order for a party if 5. Food was a little on the salty side.

Cool place, very good service, food was average. We ordered flatbread that came out under cooked and when we asked to heat it again, they heated up the top (cheese) but the crust was still under cooked.

Service was slow. Took over an hour to get dinner and had to keep asking for more water. The service was not what you would expect for the cost. Will not return.

Obviously a tourist trap. The website looks great. We ordered a fried Brie cheese app that was good, but came with crackers out of a box. For a meal we ordered a seafood paella, was dried yellow Spanish rice, the mussels spelled awful, the lobster looked and felt like rubber, the shrimp was okay. Overall we took two bites and asked to have it taken off the check. Our server was great and very understanding, he noticed we looked unhappy right away and handled the situation very well. But I will not be going back.

Our waitress was excellent but that was it. Food mediocre. Decor dismal. Menu not many choices. Hostess acted like she could care less if we are there or not.

Service was some of the worst I have had in recent memory. We had to find the waitress to get drinks and the check. The kitchen did bring our food out in a reasonable time and the food was good. Tables seated around us left the restaurant because they were seated and no one came to take an order for at least 10 minutes.

We walked in the door and no one was at the hostess stand. The place was maybe half full. This restaurant is part of a Crowne Plaza,(which I didn’t realize). We walked around and the place was trashed. Was very disappointed. We ended up leaving, since no one was available to seat us, but we probably wouldn’t have stayed if they had been available.

Nice bar/restaurant, however they messed up our order. I ordered the 8 oz Beef Tenderloin, which seemed to be the most expensive item on the menu and ordered it ‘medium rare’. My girlfriend ordered the beef burger ‘well done’. When the dishes came out (eventually) after a 45-50 minute wait between appetiser and main, my steak was more than well done (even though I asked for med rare) and my girlfriend’s burger very very rare (when she asked for well done). Needless to say they offered us a round of cocktails on the house which was appreciated, on the account of the kitchen being ‘closed’ and obviously didn’t not have the decency to offer us a replacement meal, we had to end up switching meals as her dish made my girlfriend feel ill due to how rare her meat was.

Once the bill came, they also overcharged us for the bottle of Prosecco that we had. We ordered the $40 bottle and they charged us for the $55 bottle, and the waitress explained that the Prosecco bottle ‘buttons’ on the cash register were ‘the same, I had no idea because I never used it before’, which certainly did not fly and reflected incredibly bad on the restaurant.

Decor and design were stunning. Wait staff was a bit aloof and inattentive but I know that is a "thing" at some places. Food was good and kitchen accmodated substitutions without any hassle. Would definitely come back.

Food was amazing but the service was not that great. Felt like they were under staffed and it was like “all hands on deck”. Other than waiting forever for drinks etc. everything was great.

The ambiance was hip and they had a band which we enjoyed. We ordered the seafood paella and the 7oz filet. The paella was bland and the steak was very chewy. I notified the waiter that we weren’t that we were not all that happy with the food and he didn’t care what do ever. The place would be good for cocktails and live music but not for a sit down dinner.

Food was very fair, service was ok. They got the order wrong and didn't bring out one of our dinners until after the meal was over. They took that off the bill but the rest of our party ate while one of us just sat there. Food was not great. I wouldn't go back.

Drinks were fine. We ordered calamari, fries and sliders. We had to send back the fries and sliders as they were too cold to enjoy. Service was slow and sporadic, though the server/bartender was very nice and personable. He was pretty much handling everything and doing his best.

Yes, I would recommend however, I was disappointed that they didn’t not have what I came for. According to the Instagram page, they serve French toast with berries and they did not have that the Saturday morning I visited the restaurant in fact, the breakfast menu was really small, about 6 selections and they were Turing over the kitchen for lunch ten min after I arrived and that was around 10:40 because we have a 10:30 reservation. I just wished they had what is advertised on social media and on their website.

We reserved a table at the bar bc it was still happy hour. When we got there they were going to sit us at the smallest table ever, there were 3 of us. Moved to a booth. Which we later found out was right next to a band that showed up. We moved. The band was ridiculously loud-we could not talk to each other loud. And they were BAD.
We ordered apps and wine. Food wasn’t great. Shrimp cocktail with sauce that tasted like ketchup. The space is very nice, service was fine but very unlikely I would return.

The space had cool decor. If you're wanting a loud bar with decent drinks and music, this could be a good option. However, it is not a place to sit with friends or associates and have a conversation. The music was so loud, I strained to hear my companion speak. The food was fine. There were a bunch of flies (gross!) I have no plans to return.

Service was not great because they were understaffed. Once I was waited on, they were attentive. The Omelet had very little filling and the cheese was not melted. Very bland.

No soap in the bathroom and it was dirty.

Hostess more interested in her cell phone. Server was lovely and did the best she could in an under staffed establishment. The kitchen was clearly unable to keep up with demands of the dining room. Took 35 minutes to get our food. We were however given a 20% discount as compensation.
