    The clocktower is a NYC gem. They serve Beef Wellington every day! Which is amazing if you are a steak lover. They have a beautiful dining room with dark wood and a cozy fire, next to the dining room is a cute pool table and next to that is the bar. I highly recommend this place for great food and service.

    The Michelin star is well-deserved. Low-key, excellent service, excellent food (the sourdough bread and lightly-salted butter alone is worth the reservation!) and great value for the quality.

    We had a great experience at The Clocktower. The food, drinks, service, and environment were all amazing. We were celebrating our anniversary and they gave us complimentary champagne! It was unexpected but very appreciated! We will be back!

    As always, the food and ambiance were great. The service was extremely slow- they are definitely under staffed. After 15 minutes of sitting unattended, we finally asked if we could place a drink order. The busboy took our drinks order , but then after another 10 minutes we had to ask where our drinks were. I suppose restaurants are having a difficult time staffing but…?

    The menu consisted mostly of old classics reimagined and new favourites done with a twist. The mushroom risotto and shepherds pie were both delicious and well-presented. Service was outstanding. The sommelier got the recommendations bang on the money too. Would definitely recommend for a meal with friends or a date night. Very good value for money. The free-to-use billiards in the bar room is a perfect touch!

    Venue is amazing but staff need some help. Manager's were great but service staff over serve and make it a stressful experience. They don't seem to enjoy the job and the timing was awful. Menu needs a few more expansive options. Its ok but the venue atmoshphere is what drives the experience otherwise I would not go back.

    Chips were delicious but portion too small for proper chips even at a fine restaurant. Could have had another seafood offering. Sticky toffee pudding was just ok, the pudding could have been softer and sauce warmer… otherwise very good food, service and ambiance .

    We were in NYC for our honeymoon and decided to go out for a nice meal on one of the nights to celebrate, the clock tower was a perfect choice, food was incredible (have the Mac and cheese starter-it’s sublime) service was second to none, they couldn’t do enough for you, the dining halls are well presented and feel very welcoming and warm, I would visit again in a heartbeat and make sure I could get a game of pool in this time!

    Overall the food was solid with the exception of the fish and chips which were poor. Quality of the fish was good but terrible batter and soggy, bad chips. Given this is meant to be a fancy pub, pretty disappointing that what should be the crown jewel was a fail. Overall it was good but not good enough we'd return or recommend in a city of great options.

    The menu is weirdly very simple for a 1-Michelin Star restaurant. The food is good, but does it deserve a Michelin-star? I doubt. Pricing is reasonable for NYC standards. Hotel guests don't receive a discount whatsoever.

    Buttermilk pancakes were raw in the middle and we had to send them back (they didn’t charge us for them in the end). The English breakfast was meant to come with fried bread - it didn’t and it came with white toast instead. I am British and the English breakfast was not remotely like any English breakfast I have ever had. The one piece of mushroom was odd - shiitake perhaps, but not something I would have expected with breakfast and it was one small piece. No salt or pepper (for our eggs). We asked for English breakfast tea which came without milk. The service was strange also - not bad just off and awkward. The dining room is small and dark. Overall, very disappointing for a milestone birthday celebration.

    From our first moment indoors, we were greeted by warm smiles and a gorgeous candlelit room. The service was exceptional and the food was plated beautifully and the flavors, amazing! We enjoyed the scotch egg, diver scallops as a appetizer and the fish and chips and beef Wellington as our entrees. The dessert was the baked Alaska, served table side and the execution was masterful.
