    Took my team for a birthday celebration and we had a great time - from the moment we walked in the staff made us feel welcomed. The manager was very gracious as we were celebrating a team member's birthday provided us with a complimentary dessert with candle and also sang along with us. Well done, Tommy Bahama :)

    I love going to Tommy Bahama. This is my second time at the NYC location, and we have also dined at the one in Honolulu and the Big Island. Our server was outstanding and very attentive. My only complaint was that the restaurant was too noisy, and we couldn't really hear the live entertainment very well, which is a feature at all the Tommy Bahama restaurants. Our meals were outstanding. I had the mac nut fresh fish, and my wife had the salmon bowl. For dessert, I had my staple -- pina colada coconut cake. Excellent dessert.

    Tommy Bahama is consistent no matter where you go. I always have a great meal. From fish, to steak, soup, salad and dessert everything is good. The portions are nice size and although prices have gone up the quality is there and enough food. The restaurant is beautiful and live music is a nice addition.

    Dinner at Tommy Bahama was lively and fun. There was a corporate event and Restaurant Week was happening, but you would never know it. The staff were attentive, friendly and pleasant. Food and drinks arrived quickly and our server checked on us several times during the meal. The noise level was louder than normal, but conversations still could be heard and it did bother us. This is a great place if you want to escape the stress of Midtown. It is especially fun in the summer when you can lean into the tropical and beach vibes.

    Went for a business lunch. I admit it was more crowded and noisier than I expected and tables were a bit close together. Our server was very friendly and helpful. And the food was very good and reasonable (for this area in midtown). I had the Chicken Mango salad, which I really liked. Service was quick, so we were able to stay on schedule.

    Got to my reservation right on time. They said the main dining room filled up and they needed to sit us downstairs in the bar. Not acceptable. Took 45 minutes for food to come that was ordered very quickly.

    The noise level was the only negative in my experience. It was way too loud. The entertainer was over-miked, encouraging some very loud clients to outshout it. Otherwise the food, service and decor were lovely

    Not sure if it was our waiters fault or the bar. It was a business lunch that I was hosting. We ordered drinks - 2 beers & 2 wines - and they never came. Advised that they were "working on them" and after about 10 minutes, we gave our appetizer order. The appetizers arrived and they were still "working on our drinks." The drinks did not arrive at our table until the appetizers were nearly finished. All at the table agreed that they had never had to wait that long for a drink. The food was delicious and it was, otherwise, a nice lunch spot but I would never again take a client to this restaurant.

    This was a hidden gem we found by searching Open Table when we were starving and shopping on 5th Avenue. The atmosphere was very calming and the service was excellent. There was live music being performed which was a very nice surprise. The guacamole was very fresh and delicious. We enjoyed the mahi mahi tacos, grilled shrimp salad and the pulled pork sandwich (which was a daily special). Everything we had exceeded our expectations. I will definitely return.

    We were there at 5pm which is smack in the middle of their happy hour. A little noisy and a lot of people moving past our table. Not a place for a quiet dinner conversation. Food was quite good and service was great.

    We've eaten at a number of Tommy Bahama restaurants but this is the best! We celebrated my wife's birthday here and Juan did a great job as our server and made this special occasion even better. They have a great wine list and the fish sandwich and Mahi tacos were superb. We tried their special creme brulee that is served in a cut out pineapple and I highly recommend this. The atmosphere is very comfortable and we will certainly return here again.

    We decided to come here for dinner before a concert at Radio City. We have always shopped at the store but it was the first time dining here. I must say it is an absolute escape from the City. This is for sure a hidden gem. The service and food were outstanding. There was a lady who sang beautifully and played guitar. The setting was elegant and felt very much like a lovely vacation without the kitschy decor. I would return in a heartbeat. For apps we had the Cauliflower, my husband had the tuna entree and I had the halibut. My son had the sliders. Drinks were fabulous, desserts were great as well.
