    Everything was great. We came in earlier than our reserved time, and was able to be seated. Our special seating request from the original reservation was also honored. I'm so glad Rowland's is back!

    It was a cute restaurant. The hostess was marvelous, however I did find that I had to track down a server if I wanted a refill of my drink or order something. I waited a good 15 minutes before anyone saw me after the hostess sat me. It was a bit disappointing. Two different waiters helped me..... the second - much more attentive - and ended my experience on a good note.

    Solid lunch choice in the Macy’s department store basement . Rowland’s burger was a very fine burger - medium rare with the egg. Group also had very nice salads.

    The host was slow. We stood waiting for about 20 minutes even though we had a reservation. His movement was very inefficient. The food service was slow. We ordered, and waited 30 minutes for our food. The waiter was slow. We had to ask for the check, then snag the manager to actually get it. She immediately brought it and took 20% off for our wait. So that and the fact that the food was tasty were the only redeeming qualities this restaurant had. To top it off our waters never got refilled. Needless to say, I doubt we will be returning.

    The food was okay, nothing special. You are in the city so expect to pay a little more than average for a meal. Had the burger, was over cooked. Fries were good. Kids had chicken fingers, average, edible. Convenient place to eat because right inside Macy’s

    As the menu was limited one would expect each item to be well made. Extremely disappointing. The food was mediocre at best. Salad was way over dressed. The “falafel burger” was dry and tasteless with not enough sauce.

    Had never heard of Rowlands before I went. And for good reason. It's tucked inside Macy's lower level. But now that I've discovered it, I'll be back. The food was terrific, and varied. I had the falafel burger. Which I would now eat anytime over a hamburger. My guest had the chopped crispy chicken salad. Judging by how quickly she finished hers, I'd say she liked it. The restaurant is tucked behind the food court on the lower level of Macy's. Worth the effort.

    Food and atmosphere were good, service was a little slow considering the dining room wasn't very full. Prices were a bit expensive for what it was. Probably better if you're have a Macys employee discount.

    Rowland's has a nice ambiance and its uniqueness is that its in the Lower Level of Macy's iconic store in Herald Square. After a busy day shopping all the 7-8 floors relax downstairs with a nice glass of wine. Hamburgers looked good but I'm a vegetarian. Don't be in a hurry to go anywhere, service is slow.

    It took over 30 minutes to get a medium rare burger and it came raw. We could not wait to have it cooked better. They did take it off bill. Right before leaving a woman next to us got a burger too. She sent it back too for being raw. Will not go again and would not recommend.

    Great food especially the pull-apart bread. Service was fantastic, it's waiter service but they get you in and out super quick. My one gripe is the plate the 'small' salad (the small is gigantic!!!!) is served on - it should come in a bowl. The plate was so full I had a hard time keeping food from sliding off! But highly recommend nonetheless.

    In the basement of Macy's. Place empty, sat for 10 minutes until someone came over. Ordered what I thought was a unique NY deli sandwich, ended up being 2 thick pieces of bread and a little bit of pastrami with other stuff. Not an enjoyable meal!

    The Food is great in this restaurant , you get a good size portion and the prices are on the affordable side , You get tap water and they keep refilling your glass which is also on the plus side as I only drink water with my meals and in most places you have to buy bottled water
