Me and my daughter came in for a quick dinner before heading to our Broadway show. It would’ve been a nice sit down dinner for me and her however, they were having happy hour at the bar and it was extremely loud. Kylie was our waitress. She checked in on us once after our food was served. I had to flag another waitress down to get our bill and at this time, there wasn’t a lot of patrons in the dining area.

I asked where the buffalo was coming from and our server said “Albania” She’s funny good sense of humor.

A nice & quiet 1st anniversary with my love.. first time for her to taste a “bison”.. but not the buffalo 😉 we’ll be back🤙🏽

Great steakhouse option that is a better value with as good or better dishes than some nearby alternatives. Great wines by the glass options with relatively good prices as well.

Very good bison burger, good service. Nice and quiet restaurant.
Unfortunately the bar was closed 20 minutes before closing time and I couldn’t have a whiskey.

Asked if the bison chili was gluten free, the answer was no. No offer of the gluten free menu.
Bison ribeye had quite a bit of fat on it. Mashed potatoes were very dry.

When I got to Ted's, they didn't have the reservation that I made through OpenTable, but they seated me at the bar for dinner. So they did try to rectify as best they could. I had the pot roast which was pretty damned good (the side carrots were a little watery, but that doesn't discount the quality of the pot roast and mashed potatoes). So all-in-all, not a bad meal, though the fact that my reservation was messed up left me a little uneasy. So yes, by all means, give Ted's a try (the steak that the guy next to me was having looked delicious and he definitely seemed to be enjoying it).

Hostess was great so great first impression. Table not ready because we were early. Went to bar for happy hour. Seated at time of reservation. Server didn't not introduce herself. She was attentive but quick to leave us mid sentence. It was noisy but we got a booth which was nice. Food was ok. Coffee was luke warm even when asked for hotter coffee.

We are big fans of Ted's Montana Grill in other states., and we expected this one to be as good. The NYC restaurant was a big disappointment. Our table cloth was very dirty., it was like they just threw the brown paper cover over a dirty table cloth., very disgusting. Waiter wasn't sure if he had another cloth (really!)but came by and replaced a few mins later. Service was very bad., the waiter was not very good., so rushed with little attention. We saw his finger dip into water glass, top of the water bottle hit our straws.., just very gross. Funny thing, other tables were being taken care of much better with much more attentive (and friendly) staff. We must have gotten the second string.., food was OK., burgers were overcooked and lacked flavor., a little mess up with our order, but that was just because waiter was rushing. As the bill came, the waiter tried to make up for lame service, in a predictively shallow "tip time" fashion). Normally we would have stayed for dessert, but figured we go someplace else.

My husband loves this place and loved his Bison fillet with baked potato and excellent green bean. And my sister in law enjoyed her turkey burger (odd place to order such a thing but apparently it was good.)
I ordered the MacMurray Pinot Noir and was delighted when it was good. My salad with a bison burger was good except the burger was way overcooked.
Am told they had a staffing shortage, but our waiter was great.

Our first visit was a good one. The food was very good, the service was sporadic as the full house seemed to have the servers overwhelmed. This being said, we had a great time and enjoyed our meals. I would recommend this place.

Our annual Christmas Eve pilgrimage to see the Rock Center tree always ends with a tasty dinner at Ted’s Montana!

Killer bison burgers, nicely presented with yummy shredded lettuce and fries. Best bacon bison cheeseburger I have all year!

All the food is great, the service also great. Prices are even reasonable (for NYC)!

Food and atmosphere are good and key being close to radio city music hall for pre-Christmas show meal. negatives were (1) waiter who seemed to be overwhelmed by a larger table that was demanding his attention to our detriment and (2) hostesses. We asked for a booth when we arrived and the hostesses told us they were all taken. We asked how long the wait would be for a booth and they said "until they are finished eating". Professional hostesses should always know how long a particular wait might be - wouldn't they know if a booth had just asked for a check? Had just finished dessert? They were very young ladies - and obviously not well trained.

We ALL had a GREAT burger - different specialties - delicious - filling, and just enough. Our waiter (From Tennessee) was awesome - fun and energetic and gave great reviews on items on the menu - We went in for a quick bite after Radio City - had a reservation which we got on line - not expensive - great bang for your buck!!!

Food was not very good, less flavor. Salmon was super fishy and the Brussel sprouts were burnt, steak was undercooked...bad experience. I’ll go back to Atlanta for the original flavors before tying it in NYC again.:(

The steaks, both bison and beef, are great! Cooked perfectly, tender, and tasty Clearly not from some industrial factory farm. Only downside was that they were very busy and seemed to not have enough servers for the tables. Then somehow, my companion was served a steak that she did not order. Ted's staff quickly offered to replace it, but rather than wait she kept it and found it was to her liking, just not a lean as what she ordered. There were some other minor inconveniences, but overall the food was delicious. I would definitely go back for another meal.
