Fantastic brunch experience in a charming, country family style setting. Met with friends, one of which had her 2 year old.. Loved that they had seating for the baby as well as fun drawing activities. Definitely still an upscale experience and the servers and hosts were attentive. We actually were flying out that afternoon to Miami and had some small luggage pieces with us. We were seated at a table that had a wonderful space for our luggage so that it was not in anyones way. Classy yet friendly environment.. I would not hesitate to come back! Bloody Mary's and all drinks ordered were impressive.

Enternaing with a menu that covers all tastes and tasters; kids to discerning adults. Very good but way short of great.

The service was slow, and our waiter seemed distracted— the layout was a bit disorganized. But our food was amazing and the environment was upscale and buzzy; it had a great “New York” feel. Don’t miss the dumplings.

Food has gone bad compared to previous years.
Don’t get the chicken, so dry and bland.
No more lobster sliders in menu. Pretty bad.

The food, honestly, was mostly fantastic. Our paella only had a single shrimp, but was otherwise delicious, as was the pasta. The serving sizes were perfect for us, and wonderfully prepared. The service was a little slow considering how empty the restaurant was, but what ruined our experience was being seated at a shared table with a loud party when there were several empty tables around us. We’d definitely be willing to give it another shot and hope for a better experience.

I've not been a fan of other Todd English restaurants, but we had good food and service. Nothing fancy, pub food type menu. Very good sliders, though the full burger ordered by a tablemate was overcooked. Disliked the communal table seating and noise level, but to be expected at this sort of place (located in a food court type area). I would go back.

Very energetic atmosphere (read:loud), but so worth it. Casual, come seating, 6 kitchens provide a great variety. This does mean your meals won’t all come out at the same time. But it worked out our surprisingly well. I had the most incredible hamburger (the Food Hall burger). Huge & cooked to perfection: medium, juicy & so flavorful. I almost was able to finish it. My husband had the chicken & Ginger dumplings- My daughter & her BF shared veggie sushi & sautéed broccoli. Clean plates all around.
Wish I lived closer!!

My wife and I shared the CHINESE CHICKEN SALAD and the SHRIMP NOODLE dishes. The shrimp noodle dish is no longer curry, contrary to the online menu. Service was very good, and the two dishes were surprisingly good, verging on excellent. We wanted a relatively quick, but not a "fast food", dinner, and this filled the bill nicely. My wife had a glass of the Newton Chardonnay and I had a glass of the Villa Antinori Toscana Sangiovese -- both were very nice.

My husband, two 13-year-old daughters and I made a reservation for lunch at Todd English while staying at the Plaza. We were surprised when we were directed to be seated at another table at which 3 men were dining. I requested a private table as the restaurant was virtually empty. We were refused by the hostess who explained this was a “communal dining” restaurant and they had to save tables for larger parties. Of course, no one was there to be seated. We were there, with a reservation, but they were more interested in the potential future patrons who weren’t there.

We explained that we required privacy. We were there with our two children and did not know whether the men they were proposing to seat us with would be having kid-appropriate conversation. I don’t think those men should have been forced to eat with two teenage girls and likewise don’t think we should have to eat with strangers who might not be good dining mates for us. Totally absurd, especially in an empty restaurant, with just two or three other tables occupied.

The manager grudgingly agreed to put us at another table but said he could not promise that he wouldn’t seat someone with us. He explained there would soon be a 1:00 lunch rush. We ate quickly (service was fast, food was adequate, and frankly we wanted to get out of there). When we left just before 1:30, perhaps two additional tables had been seated. No big rush. Again, the preference for customers who might come in, over customers who were there, with a reservation, is baffling. We won’t be back. If you want to be treated like cattle, this is the place for you!

We ordered pork buns and Gyros. The meat was inedible. All FAT. Also the gyro had
some sort of inedible leaves on it. Had to take all of that off. I have had Gyros many times
without fat. This fat was stringy and inedible.

20 minutes later no one had ever approached the table to pour water. Waiters looked right through the table. We got up and left.

Bad experience for a place located in the Plaza which evokes all kinds of thoughts of hospitality.

Great place the food is really good and yummy...ISSUE the food was NOT served at the exact time to everyone in the party. Everyone got their food at different times which made it a little bit uncomfortable. The reason why - It's a food plaza (open kitchens) so the meals are cooked at different stations so there is no communication with the waiters and food staff at the various stations. When something is really they simply walk it to your table, there should be someone to coordinate everything.

I went here for a birthday dinner with daughter and spouse as it was convenient to where we needed to be and was recommended. I reserved a table for 3 hoping that being a restaurant rather then the food court we'd get a table to sit at so we could talk. The hostess saw my reservation and then put us at the bar which is not where we wanted to sit so I asked to move and she moved us to one of the high tables begrudgingly. We did not realize there were no regular height tables and chairs, so unfortunately my husband ended hp having back pain after dinner which he still has 2 days later. The alcoholic drinks were way to expensive for us so we didn't order any. The waiter was very nice and attentive at first but once we got our food, which was very fast, we didn't see him again until time to pay. The food was tasty but many choices were overpriced in our opinion so we were limited in choices due to that and my gluten free concern. The one dish my husband was planning on getting was the ahi tuna and he asked for it without the scallions or onions but was told it was already in the tuna, so he eneded up choosing the fried chicken sandwich which is not what he wanted but did say it tasted good. Therefore, we had mixed feelings about our experience and would only recommend it to some individuals based on what they were looking for.

VERY OVERPRICED FOR THE QUALITY! Located in the Plaza Shops on the lower level of the PLAZA HOTEL- cute place BUT there were other resturants that might have been alot better! We had the burger- which was OK not great with limp fries- bill was $75 for 2 burgers, 2 fries, 1 beer and a coke! We are willing to pay for excelltnet food but in this case go get a burger somewhere else in NYC- other food look ok also- Waiter was really nice and gave good service-

Overall decent, but we picked this based on the seemingly good kids menu. The kids menu is good as far as options, but a paltry 2 chicken fingers are not nearly enough for a kid (6-10y) after a day in the city, maybe a toddler. Same feeling on 2 sliders. If I'm really reviewing this, from an industry insider eye, they should also know that 2 is not ascetically pleasing. There needs to be more food on the plate, with few apple slices, and more options for kids desserts, other than the $13 Eloise Root Beer Float, aka tummy ache. Fun to go 'to the Plaza', but probably will not go back.
