“Nice place great hamburgers and happy hour.”

“Walking into Moran's during the week it would seem like your average restaurant/pub, but looks can be deceiving. My husband and I visited several catering halls and researched a few restaurants for our wedding, but nothing seemed like the right fit until we saw Moran's. The restaurant is very warm a... ”

Nation Restaurant & Bar

 5 star(s)  (10/05/2010)
“Now that summer is over we are heading back to our spot Point Break on 45th St. Very laid back and the staff very friendly. Prices and specials are good which is a rarity for midtown, which lends itself to rip-off tourist spots. We even have gotten some of the girls in our office to dance on the bar... ”

Nation Restaurant & Bar

 5 star(s)  (10/05/2010)
“We recently discovered a fun place in midtown called Point Break. We probably head there once a week for the fish tacos. Very laid back atmosphere and love the pic of Patrick Swayze. Very casual and prices are reasonable which is a rarity for midtown. They have some fun drink and food specials that ... ”

Nation Restaurant & Bar

“My office just had a great party at this place called Point Break on 45th St in midtown. They have a few different floors and rooms but our function was on the 2nd fl. Nice to have a midtown spot that isnt so fancy and formal, Point Break was fun and seems to cater to younger professionals who still... ”

The Overlook

 1 star(s)  (12/29/2009)
“Uhhhh, don't know who wrote the description, but this place is a bar, not a culinary destination. A very good bar with great specials, but still a bar none-the-less. Someone has delusions of grandeur.”

Mars 2112

“Very bad service. Dirty dishes left on surrounding tables for a long time (until we told them to clean it up). Bathrooms are filthy. Totally over-priced for cafeteria food. Alien at door very nasty to little boys that were touching her/his alien costume (what do you expect when you're dressed li... ”

H2O Bar & Grill

“The view was amazing and the food was good. The waitress was very pleasant and accomodating. You have to go and sit out on the deck; perfect date location.”

Miss Mamie's Spoon Bread Too

 5 star(s)  (01/16/2009)
“For my first visit to New York and Harlem, I wanted a true soul food dining experience. Miss Mamies was that. We had the good fortune to sit with a couple who ate there every Sunday and had recommended the fried chicken. With both of us loving comfort food my girlfriend and I chose it with sides of ... ”

Miss Mamie's Spoon Bread Too

 2 star(s)  (04/15/2008)
“I have lived near Spoon Bread for over 10 yrs. From time to time I have have dinner there, mostly because it is convenient. The service is always average, the food nothing special and the prices are a bit high. Last Thanksgiving, with family visiting, I made advanced reservation for my group o... ”
