Everything was fabulous with the exception of our server! Our party are all in service driven careers and have extra empathy and sympathy for wait staff ... but our server unfortunately was not a good representation of the restaurant. That said, otherwise we enjoyed our experience!

Not quite what it used to be. Not very lively for a Friday post theatre experience. Prob in need of a “rejuvenation” project. I was surprised and saddened.

Sardi’s is a “has been” restaurant that is coasting on it’s reputation from a bye gone era. The food is not Italian as one would suspect - it is a hodgepodge of different cuisines that obviously cater to the tourist who most likely makes up the majority of their clientele. We dined on the first floor where there is zero ambiance and the lights are bright. The waiters are brusque, the food is mediocre at best and the prices are high. Save your money and go somewhere else.

A classic, fine dining experience that sends one back to a time when it was the norm. This is the place to dine before a show on or off Broadway. The service is impeccable, the attention to detail is fantastic, and the entire staff will treat each patron as if they are a VIP.

The shrimp cocktail, as well as the lobster/shrimp cocktail, consists of huge shrimp, tender lobster, and a red sauce wuth just enough heat. Entree options are all fantastic. Having dined here several times over the past several years on every trip to NYC for a theatre production, many items have been tried. Favorites include the beef/pork cannelloni, seared scallops, chicken breast, and spaghetti. Everything is fabulous and the dining experience out of this world.

Like a Broadway show that has stuck around too long, this restaurant is simply hanging on to past glory. Completely forgettable meal. Food, service and “ambience” were all subpar for our family pre-show meal.

Having grown up in New Jersey in the 50' and 60's, "Sardi's" was synonymous with NY THEATER, and when I was old enough, I HAD to go to Sardi's. I wasn't disappointed. But, over time and with changing tastes, I didn't return for years, having moved to California. I recently had the opportunity to return to this venerable, storied classic of NY dining, and was blown away with the food, the ambiance, and the impeccable, incredibly gracious service. From the comforting basket of bread, to the generous and delicious salads and house specialties offered in appetizer portions for lunch, you will be so happy you "came home". I especially recommend (for a pre-theater lunch) the homemade mozzarella & tomato, the crab cake, and either of the canneloni (sp?) offered...the spinach just a little bit better than the meat-filled. Sharing is just enough for 2 if you plan to see a matinee and then go to dinner afterward. With age comes appreciation for the venue and decor itself, which must be seen. I love this place!

This is an old and well known restaurant catering to the theater crowd. It is dated and the food is only so so. Service was slow and erratic even though there were seemingly many uniformed attendants . I would recommend the restaurant to anyone who has heard of it in "the golden years" but will not return myself.

Sardi's is the iconic pre-Broadway theater meal. Our group of six had diverse dining preferences, yet we all agreed that the food was fabulous, the service was flawless and the atmosphere set the mood for a memorable evening. Don't go to New York and not go to Sardis!

We went to Sardi's before seeing Phantom of the Opera. We were looking for an iconic NYC experience for dinner and we got it!! Loved looking at all of the caricatures on the wall while we dined. Service was INCREDIBLE. Food was INCREDIBLE!

Sardi's extended us a courtesy as well. The rain caused us to run about 10 minutes late for our reservation, but they were kind enough to hold our table after we called. Would absolutely recommend!
