I enjoyed my experience but my server Melissa I believe was her name wasn't patient and proceeded to continuously ask me if I was ready to go after still enjoying my food and drinks. She came back every 5 minutes and it was distracting. I felt rushed and left soon after. I did not appreciate that, not one bit.

Our server was awesome and we were seated almost immediately with a reservation. Unfortunately, at 7 PM they were already out of the fish special and even out of the basic chicken dish that was on the menu. The food was tasty and plentiful and the price is very affordable. We will go back. It was great for my teenage son.

The hosts greeted us warmly although we were early and seated us at a lovely cozy booth but that is where the excellence ended. The soup of the day was unavailable at 5pm and the clam chowder was tasteless and as thick as concrete. By 5:30 the noise level was unacceptable and the restaurant was only 3/4 full. The hot coffee we requested to warm up was served tepid and the. Refill we asked for to heat things up was over long in coming and turned out to be equally cool. Our waitress was sweet but obviously inexperienced. The bison short rib was tender and flavorful but accompanied by sauce that lacked any distinguishing character. The bison burger was properly cooked but accompanied by limp French fries that were cold and not crisp. Also onion was put on the burger and it was not supposed to be included. All in all very unsatisfactory and we won’t be returning. They do have a gluten free menu and are careful to advise you if you let them know you have concerns.

We got to the restaurant early and were seated right away. The waitress Mel took our drink order and then came back with our drinks and took our appetizer and dinner order. The appetizer came out and two minutes later our waitress comes over and says our food is ready. So we said okay and received that as well. I ordered my burger medium and got well done. My husband ordered a veggie burger. Mine was overcooked and tasted blah and my husband said the veggie burger was bland as well. An hour later our waitress comes back and we ordered dessert. Dessert took over 20 minutes (a brownie with ice cream on top). Suffice it to say we left late and got lucky our show was running behind as well. Overall the food was fair, the service okay, but we will not be going back. I expected better.

That sat us immediately upon check in arriving at our reservation time. The waitress gave us suggestions and accommodated our need to make an 8p show by getting our order in. A nice, unrushed meal. The bone in bison steak special was excellent! Crab dip app also! Both recommendations from the waitress!

Valentines dinner with my wife before a show. I searched google maps to find a restaurant near Radio City. The info and reviews and pictures convinced me to try it. I loved the art-deco style design and the old school bison head on the wall. We shared the homemade potato chips and ranch dip. Great. And the food was good as well. I had the bison filet with spiced coffee rub. Very good except that they put their traditional lemon butter on top of it. Wish I knew ahead because I would have told them to hold that because it didn’t pair well. I had a side of fries that were unfortunately killed. Over fried. The wife had the beef filet and baked potato. No complaints. Overall I would still go back as they had other menu items that I would love to try. A nice place and it’s close to all the action. And for Valentine’s Day it wasn’t really crowded.

Mel was an excellent server. We arrived earlier than expected and the restaurant was very accommodating. The food was delicious. We were steps away from Radio City Music Hall where we were headed to after dinner. The restaurant got packed 2 hours prior to showtime. The servers and bussers were working hard. Drinks were slow from the bar but I think it was because there were so many orders. We will definitely be back!

We ate here twice during a recent trip to NY. Following good reviews we gave it a try and were not disappointed. Within easy reach of Times sq, Central Park, and many of the cities hotels the location is ideal. We booked both times and glad we did as it was busy (Sat night & Thur night). The menu had a good selection, the Bison Nachos to start with are a must! Serving all there burgers in either Bison or Beef, I had Bison both times and my wife had beef, the burgers were exceptional, portions were good and everything was cooked to perfection - the fires and Onion rings were delicious!

We had our 4 year old son with us and he was well catered for along with the place being family friendly (which not all places to eat in NYC are). The bill both times for the 3 of us was around $100, not cheap but nothing in NYC is - Highly recommend and will return next time we are in the city.

Used to have a Ted’s Montana Grill in my town but it went out of business... when my family saw there was a location in NYC we booked a reservation right away for the same day we would be in town for a Broadway show. Our show ended a bit earlier than anticipated and TMG was able to seat us for dinner ahead of our scheduled reservation (much appreciated bc we were hungry lol). Our server was super friendly and on top of everything. Food was amazing, as always. It was super quiet, not many people, but it was a Sunday night. The location is great too, never realized how central it was to so many of the tourist sites around Times Square/Broadway. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good meal.

We celebrated my cousin Christina’s birthday here at it was really quiet and lovely. My mom loved her chili and hamburger and fries. My cousin and I both had the Chicken Caesar salad and it was very good. My cousin’s fiancée enjoyed his meal too. We celebrated with a dessert (Brownie sundae) for my cousin and they enjoyed it! The female waitress was very nice and accommodating. Nice ambiance.

From the moment we entered until we left was a great experience. Asked for a booth and with a little rearranging that’s what got. Our server was very attentive, we ordered drinks while looked at the menu. Our food was fantastic and steaks cooked perfectly. (my wife is very fussy with her steak)
Restaurant ambience was great.

Took the family for dinner (9 of us) after Radio City. We were seated immediately, served quickly and accommodated for a birthday that was in our group. The waitress was good with the kids & also helpful with the adult beverage selections. Definitely recommend for a reasonably priced out in NYC

Ted’s has been a personal favorite for years, and this last dining experience was the one and only time where the service was off—significant wait for a reserved table, an inattentive waitress who made numerous mistakes with the food order, am usually long wait for the food, and an unusually long wait for the bill. The restaurant was not busier than usual, so I was surprised about the dip in service quality. That being said, the food was still very good, and Ted’s remains a go-to place.

the booth seating was very comfortable and felt very private, which was really nice. the lighting gave it that romantic touch, which i loved. the food was also great, the waitress just didn’t come around as much as we needed (understandable with how many people were there) but overall great experience! would go again.

we got
- naked burger
- cheeseburger (both beef)
they were great and cooked perfectly, and most of all very filling!! for dessert we got cheesecake and a fudge brownie which were not really worth getting.

I have been debating whether or not to call the general manager....but that being said here’s why!
The waiter was drunk....yeah drunk....screwed our food order because he had to be retrieved from the bathroom! By the time we got our main course they were closing the restaurant and rushed our eating experience! The sides were cold or Luke warm at best (garlic mashed skinned over).....my family has a tradition on Christmas Eve and look forward to a happy experience with good food! Did not happen. Just in case you think I’m being unfair...I still tipped the drunk guy 24%.....on a $450.00 check....you do the math.
And open table could have told me they closed early instead of taking my 7:30 reservation!
Yeah not happy!

Best burger I’ve had in a long while. Service was excellent but a little slow. I would definitely recommend.
