TGIF was at most one-third full when we arrived. Despite that the hostess attempted to seat us at a tiny table in the rear. We asked for something a little roomier and were shown to another table which would have accommodated us and our three grandchildren. Our waitress was more than pleasant and tended to every request with expeditious flair. We each had one of the new dishes and they were excellent. The noise level was low which allowed for easy conversation. We will be back.

Excellent service from our waiter. Unfortunately, the high chairs were sticky and not clean. This was the case for all of the high chairs as I took a look at them because I want the switch it out. Great ambiance overall. My only suggestion is to update the brick floors because it looks a bit cheap.

James our server is a nice guy but he is slow as molasses. He does not have a sense of urgency at all.

We decided to sit at the bar and the bartender must have been new. She did not make my drink properly, didn’t give us the right size straws, forgot to us utensils and took an excessively long time to do it. She told my wife some story about a mix up on the orders of straws so they didn’t have long enough straws for the glasses, yet further down at the other end of the bar, there were other people who had the right straw for their drinks. As a person who frequents this location, the food was not up to par nor was the service. Definitely not the best experience I’ve had going there.

I’ve been going to this location at least twice a month, decided to drop by late Saturday night after the pool, came in super hungry, order some wings, which they only damp the sauce on top & served it. The taste was horrible, the food was pretty much rushed, mashed potatoes had lumps of potatoes in it. Food was awful & that will be the last time I’m going there.

I enjoyed the atmosphere. I went particularly for the whiskey glazed ribs, and they were so juicy and fell off the bone soon as you pick it up. YUM! :)
The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5, is because as good as my ribs were, they clearly were not freshly taken from the oven, as they were so "cool", yes cool not hot, not warm, but so cool that they were completely COLD (usually they stay warm throughout my meal) by the time I had 2 pieces left. :(

Much better than last time I was here. The place just needs to be cleaned. There is always food under the tables. It is not enough to wipe down the tables. Look underneath and sweep the floor in between guests.

I didn't have to wait for a table. The waiter was excellent. The food was ok. My raspberry ice tea was gross but that's all I had to not choke on the tough sirloin. And my ribs were a little too charcoal burned. The appetizers were great.

As usual, the host had no clue as to what open table was and I had to ask to speak with the asst mgr, nancy, to set him straight. The food was tasty and plentiful and our server, Daniel, friendly and attentive. Will ask for him again

The server, Joshua, had I recognized him with his fully grown beard, would have requested a different one since my previous experience with him was less than stellar ( unfriendly, inattentive )! He served me a disgustingly charred, blackened piece of chicken which he never should have accepted from the kitchen staff and when I asked him for a replacement, he brought me different pieces instead of taking away my plate and giving new one. I had to ask him 3 times for a plastic bag in which to carry my takeaway and he totally ignored me twice when I called him over to go over the bill ( which was incorrect as he never entered the Fridays rewards code we gave him 2x for the free burger )! All in all, he was absolutely terrible and had he not had a trainee in tow, I would have made a stink . I've NEVER encountered such a bad waiter and to think he's training someone?,😡

Came here for my birthday. I love this location. It was kind of cold last night and my party was seated next to the door and the door was being opened constantly so we were kind of cold.

Requested and got Cedrick who was his usual amiable self. Very accommodating, friendly and anticipated our every need. Glad he was available . Nancy, the manager, was also very accommodating and friendly, yet professional. and helped straighten out the open table issue of which the hostesses STILL are not cognizant .

Went there and as usual, we were not disappointed. the food was excellent, the value was wonderful as was the wit service. The only problem we encountered was that for the 3rd time in a row, the host had no clue as to what open table was when I announced that it was such a reservstion and had to have a manager come over and straighten things out.

We had had the waitress before and she remembered us. She is the most vivacious person employed at that TGI Friday's. Pleasant, friendly, and efficient. The new Lemon-Garlic Shrimp Pasta could be served proudly at virtually any restaurant in the city. It was delicious. It will be my go-to dinner at TGIF in the future.

went there the other day and, as usual, it did not disappoint. Cedrick, our server, was again on point and even received a warm greeting from Kevin Morrison, mgr. all in all, it was a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon - excellent food and service .
my one complaint is due to the fact that when I entered and told the host that I had an open table reservation, he said , " dont worry, we have plenty of seats available", totally unaware of whst OT was. . I tried to explain to him but he still didn't seem to get it. fortunately, I asked for someone else to come over who did clear this confusion up.

This place is just a dump now. The bathroom and floors are filthy. The staff and managers just stand around talking and looking at their phones. Very disappointed. This restaurant does not belong in Forest Hills.

Nothing spectacular. The waiter tried hard but also seemed distracted. The smoothies are not all real fruit and mostly sugar. Food was slightly better then your average greasy spoon

Food was great, waiter...not so much. My family and I waited 15 minutes to have our orders taken, mind you there were three other parties seated next to us and it wasn’t that packed for a Friday night. Our waiter comes takes our orders and brings out our appetizer, plates but no eating utensils or napkins. Then my son’s and husbands meals come out, still no utensils. After we requested utensils and napkins was when Our waiter then realizes that my food wasn’t out and then comes up with the excuse that due to the fact that the chicken I ordered needed to be fried it would take longer instead of saying “hey my apologies, I forgot to put in your order”. By time I had gotten my meal, both my husband and son were done with theirs.

Didn't look too busy however it still took too long to get our entrees after we ordered...almost 30mins! And her entrée was incorrect (asked for no cheese on her burger & it came with cheese!) and had to be sent back to the kitchen to be rectified! Luckily, it did not take as long as the first time. There were a lot of empty tables so it may have been fault of kitchen for slowness. We also overheard a customer who had a big problem with his takeout order. Our server, Alicia, was friendly and attentive.

Our server was wonderful. The food was properly hot and brought at the proper time. Appetizers did not pile up upon entrees. I thought the steak could have been a bit more tender, but it was cooked as ordered.

I dont recommend this to anyone first of all i made reservation online using open table and when i got to restaurant I still had to place my name in a list and had to wait 1 hour. The greeter tells me that the online service is not valid. So I walked away. Bad business.

I haven’t been to a TGI Friday’s in years due to the lack of vegan options. I was so happy to learn that they offer the Beyond Burger which I ordered without cheese and Friday’s sauce. It was delicious! My vegan daughter had pasta and fries and she enjoyed her meal. The restaurant is child friendly and the staff was great. I’d definitely recommend it.
