TSQ Brasserie Ratings and Reviews
The food at TSQ was great - I recommend the Jalepeno Tuna Sashimi appetizer and the Sea Bass entree. All of the servers and staff were eager to please, and the decor is beautiful and exciting, but our experience was marred by the incredibly high noise level. When we arrived, top 40 music was playing on the stereo at a volume so loud my husband and I couldn't hear each other without shouting, despite being seated at a cozy table for two. Midway through the meal, a live band picked up the bubble-gum program at an even higher decibel level. The band actually performed their cover versions of "All About That Base" and "Shake it Up" (among others) quite well, but made dinner conversation impossible.
I read the reviews and decided it was beat to keep it simple. And so I ordered a Cobb Salad. The ingredients were of the lowest quality. Instead of slices of avocado, there was a dollop of guacamole. Instead of slices of grilled chicken, there was shredded children. The tomatoes were small pieces and were very pale. I would never go back.
We've had breakfast at the TSQ a few times, which is fantastic. This time we decided to try dinner with a Groupon. For the Groupon value, we got a great deal as it includes appetizer, 2 meals and 2 alcoholic beverages. The food was a decent meal, not bad, but nothing to crow about either. Salmon was dry, but the sides were flavorful. Server was pleasant and attentive. I think we'll stick to breakfast though...
I had an excellent Groupon and was pleased that there was no issue with accepting the Groupon. Don't get the sesame chicken app - it's chicken fingers. French onion soup was good. My daughter and I shared steak frites. Side salad was great, steak was good, fries were good - until my daughter says "what's that?" There was something unidentifiable underneath the fries. Asked the waitress and she looked concerned, took the plate to the kitchen and returned saying it was part of the bag the fries had come in, somehow it ended up in the fryer and then on our plate. They made another one. She handled it well but I expected a manager to come and speak to us at least. Accidents happen, we didn't freak out, but it sure was weird.
Restaurant was in great location, close to Broadway and in Times Square. It was 5:30p, and not very busy, but the service was slow. Waitress was busy on her phone, not paying attention to her tables. Food was good, however we were expecting a larger menu for dinner.
conveniently located right near Times Square. Nice place to have lunch with a lot of energy and all the meals that I saw looks fantastic! A friend and I shared a bottle of wine and enjoyed the fried calamari and quesadilla. Would like to go back againto try the burgers and french onion soup which looked great!
Upon arrival at TSQ, they said they did not do reservations and were not on Open Table. After some discussion, they finally found us a table. The service was very slow, and we saw our server a total of 3 times. We never received refills on our drinks and no one came to check on us. My friend's food was okay, but my burger was completely undercooked.
I had no problem with my server Anna, she was great. It was the manager that I had a problem with. When I got there I someone that I had an open table reservation and to please check me in. The manager, Jimmy, came over and said that they not have a reservation for me, I told him I did, but let it go, thinking maybe the reservation didn't confirm. At the end of the meal I went to use a dining certificate and after waiting 20 minutes for Anna to find Jimmy, he told her to tell me that they do not accept the certificate. Later on I checked my confirmation email and I did indeed have a viable reservation. I had also contacted Open table to tell them about this situation and asked to also be credited for my points.
We had 4 kids and 4 adults the week between Christmas and New Years. I was expecting to be crowded and rushed in Times Square at that time but couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. We were made to feel welcome. Service was very friendly, timely but not rushed. (and they were quick with both the hot chocolate and the wine!) Good kids menu and varied adult menu. VERY generous portions. Entrees could easily be shared. We sat upstairs which has a good view of the street action and billboards though not much atmosphere inside.
Waitress was really bad. Table was right next to sidewalk with open doors, which was fine except for the hot dog cart's smoke billowing right over our table. There were plenty of other seats available but the waitress just laughed about it when we asked to have a different table.
The service was very slow. The tables on both sides were also complaining. It took more than 20 minutes to get dessert and almost 2 hours total for brunch. The food was unremarkable to poor. The Reuben was dry and served without salad dressing. The sound on a couple TVs was turned on and music was being played over sound system. The AC was off and it was uncomfortably warm. The wait staff tried but there wasn't much they could do.
