Todd English at The Plaza Food Hall Ratings and Reviews
Not what it used to be. My husband and I used to live in the neighborhood and this was one of our regular spots for Saturday lunch. We have been going there since it opened and it was fab! We moved but still like to come here a couple of times a year. It used to be pristine with lovely stations of various cuisines throughout. Now most of the stations are bars. The menu has been dumbed down and the service is sub-par.
To say we were disappointed is an understatement. One of the most difficult things to do in the restaurant industry is keep a beautiful, well- run restaurant just that. The folks at TE Food Hall have sadly failed.
We were 10 min early for our reservation waited 15 and we were told with a baby we had to sit at the seafood bar or not get a table . Jeff the manager was nice but would do nothing for us . So much fo our $ 500 holiday family meal at the bar. Pizza was soggy and my pasta had a funny odor. Make your plans somewhere else trust me
The Food Hall is a favorite stop on my trips to NYC. I've never had a bad meal. It's not exactly inexpensive, but if you order well you can enjoy great food without breaking the bank. Hard to beat the atmosphere, even though it gets a little noisy. All in all, one of the best spots in NYC for good food reasonably priced. ALWAYS MAKE A RESERVATION!
The food, although flavorful, was served room temperature...that was unappealing and our waiter, whilst pleasant, was not very attentive. It would have been nice to include dessert with the pre fixe menu.
I did enjoy other merchants in the Hall !
After we sent back a rice dish because the rice was crunchy and undercooked, we overheard the chef stating that it was ‘al dente’. I’ve never in my life heard of al dente rice. Also, $6 for a glass of fountain Diet Coke is outrageous. Our server was very friendly and efficient and did take the unacceptable entrée off of our tab.
Todd English is a must EVERY time we are in NYC! It is a lunch place for us with superb bites. I had their 3 gyro dish which was 3 very small gyros served on a small piece of a kind of bread with superb flavor and excellent Tsakziki. I loved it! My husband had an excellent flat bread. their wines by the glass are well chosen and very good. Can't wait for my next visit!
We made our reservation about one week in advance. When we got to the food court area and found the restaurant's location, we couldn't figure out where the entrance was. We went to one opening where there was what looked like a hostess stand and were ignored. We circled around and found another opening that seemed like an entrance. We were ignored. I finally went into the restaurant, found a waiter and asked where the entrance was. He described it. It is through the Todd English MARKET. How would diners know that? When we got to the hostess stand there, the hostess took several minutes to finish a conversation with a colleague, then asked what we needed. We told her we had a reservation. She and the colleague stared at their restaurant map and discussed where they would "put us" for several minutes (really!) We were about to say never mind when she told the staff person where to sit us. Turned out to be the end seats at a bar where the view was of half opened boxes of cellophane, empty beer containers and other operations-type things. After we were seated, we received very attentive service from a waitress who said many people have trouble finding the restaurant entrance. The food was very average. I rarely write a bad review but the ambiguous restaurant entry and lack of signage is a known and very fixable problem.
The attached photos were taken from our seats at the bar.
We were very disappointed! Our reservation for two was not honored, we were sat in a community style table and were told that the tables they had empty were reserved. The gluten free prosciutto and fig flat bread was brought and no side plates to eat from were brought until ten minutes later. The Todd sliders were brought much later. Our water glasses were never refilled. To top it off a lady in our shared table decided to breast feed her toddler right there in front of us! Food and service left a lot to be desired!
My niece, sister in law, and I came here after seeing a show. We originally came for restaurant week, but decided to order from the menu. It was an upscale, casual dining hall. We all enjoyed our food. My niece, who is 6 years old said, "On a scale of 1 to infinity, the pizza was Infinity." It was the best pizza she ever had. The Caesar salad and beef sliders were great, as well as the sweet potato fries. The service was good. This would be a great place to come for happy hour. I would recommend it, especially to experience The Plaza.
