Giggles is closing down! 4/21/2008

It is my regret to inform you that Giggles restaurant is closing. Friday April 25th is the last night Giggles will be open and it will be the best party it has ever thrown! If you are down for salsa dancing and great drink specials, I advise that you check this place out before it closes for good. more

Absolutely terrible 1/30/2007

This place is horrendous; it's like walking into a creepy dungeon. No atmosphere at all and very cramped quarters by the bar. This place is definitely not recommended, even as an after work venue. And what's with the 'no sneakers' policy on Thursday's and Friday's? If this place were more upscale, I could understand enforcing such a silly rule but since it's your middle of the road bar & pub, I can't fathom a credible reason for this rule. Also, they close EARLY! If you want to hang out with friends for any length of time this is not the place for you as they literally kick patrons out by 10pm. Besides, there are plenty of other more interesting places in the city to eat, drink and be merry. Cons: Tight space at bar, early closing, bad ambience and decor more

Hmmm... 10/25/2006

The only reason I had fun at this place was b/c I got drunk. Other than that I wasn't impressed with it at all. Pretty much is just a restaurant that later on turns into a ""club"". I think the crowd was obnoxious, seriously and not a good atmosphere. I went with my coworkers so I didn't have to interact with the rest of the weird creatures there. I don't know if this place really had 3 floors or if it was more like half of floors. Very weird setting. One place i will definitely skip in the future. more

GREAT FOOD, FRIENDLY STAFF, GREAT ATMOSPHERE 6/30/2006

I was introduced to Giggles by a couple of my co workers, i had reservations about going, but one thursday nite a few of my co workers convinced me to go...IT WAS GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!.....I had a wonderful time, i ate, drank, danced....the service was outstanding, the crowd were very friendly and always smiling! the food took abit too long to get to the table but after it did, it was worth the wait..do i reccomend Giggles?, let me put it this way...i was back on friday nite! my hat off to this gem in midtown! Pros: great food, friendly staff, nice crowd more

NOT FOR THE STUFFY HARD TO PLEASE CROWD 6/4/2006

EVERYONE DOWN TO THE COOK IS DOWN TO EARTH AND VERY FRIENDLY. THE FOOD AND THE GREAT DRINKS ARE WELL WORTH THE BUC. BECAUSE OF THE DOWN TO EARTH FREINDLY STAFF AND PATRONS, STUFFY GROUPS ARE OFTEN INTIMIDATED AND CONSIDER THE CROWD LOW-CLASS. TRY TAVERN ON THE GREEN FOR YOUR GROUP. BTW EVERY THURSDAY AND FRIDAY THERE IS AN AFTERWORK PARTY! FYI PARTY = MUSIC Pros: Drinks price, Food Selection Cons: close early on thurs more

very very very bad 4/14/2006

Although there were about 25 empty tables, it took the waitress more than 20 minutes to seat us. After waiting a lonnnng time for her to come back for our drink order, and then food order as well, our meal finally arrived. Our burgers were overcooked, our fries were undercooked, and my other friends meal was served practically cold. I did not like the vibe of this place either, music way too loud, very unfriendly staff, rather all around cheesy place. I would not go back! Cons: slow staff, bad vibe more

HORROR SHOW! 4/14/2006

Went with a group of co-workers for a birthday celebration. Staff couldnt seat us, then they moved us, til finally our group of 20 left. Also, wouldnt allow sneakers. Something they certainly dont tell you until you are there. If you want to hang out in a cheesy restaurant and be treated like your money is worthless, this is the place to go! They must of forgot the golden rule of, the customer comes first. more

ABSOLUTELY HORRENDOUS 4/13/2006

I am not sure I can describe in 150 words or less how HORRENDOUS this place is. The atmosphere is horrible - Latino music blarring so deafeningly loud (and it was only 6pm when I was there) that you cannot even speak to the person next to you. The crowd is unattractive and extremely low class, and so is the staff. The service is horrendous - the waitress who helped us was nasty, rude, and lacked interpersonal skills, and the manager is even worse. If you are looking for a laid back cool place to go for a drink after work in midtown, this is not the place. This place is extremely ghetto and does not belong in Midtown. It is absolutely horrendous. My friends and I left after 30 minutes - I would not go back if you paid me. Cons: Rude Employees, Music too loud more

Worst Bar in NYC! 4/13/2006

This bar is the worst in Manhattan. Very unattractive crowd, the hostess and manager are downright rude and nasty, the service is slow, the salsa music is so loud it is deafening, and the atmosphere stinks. I would not go back to this bar if you paid me. Pros: none! Cons: unattractive crowd, nasty manager, nasty waitresses more

WORST BAR EVER 4/12/2006

This bar has the most low class crowd, the worst music, and the most unprofessional staff I have ever encountered. Stay away. It is a joke. Pros: none Cons: low class, unprofessional staff, jawdroppingly patheti more

Great after work place! 4/11/2006

Giggles is a great after work place, great location. I enjoyed the music, atmosphere and prices for drinks. Me and my friends have gone after work and had a great time. More of a Latin group, which was great. The guys were very polite with gentlemen manners. After 8pm it did get a little crowded, but it didn't really matter since we were having a blast. Bathroom was a bit small. And if you want a dinner table on a Friday night, you should get there early or reserve. more

Best Fries I've had in NYC 3/10/2005

Great place for lunch if you're in the Times Square area. Reasonable prices, good service and everything on the menu tastes good. Plus they have the best fries I've had in NYC. Pros: Food Cons: Sometimes cold more

Every Thur 6/8/2004

I've been there 2 Thursdays so far and it has been a blast. About 10 of us showed up after work and were promptly seated. The wait staff was friendly and helpful and after their shifts several waitresses partied along with the rest of us which should show you how cool this place is if the staff stays after work! Thursdays seems to be Latin night, but the DJ did mix it up a bit for the rest of us. Catch the GT crew on Thursdays for a great time(were the loud ones) Pros: cheap drinks, dancing, staff more

After work oasis 10/15/2003

Inexpensive bar and restaurant with great food, strong drinks, nice music, and comfortable atmosphere. It's never been crowded after work and the staff is friendly. Pros: Atmosphere, Strong drinks, Inexpensive more

great for meeting spot for after work 1/17/2003

i go here on friday nights after work with a crowd. always have blast, the people and staff are all very nice. the drinks are worth the price ( nice and strong) and the dj from 6-10 plays a good variety of music from disco, hip-hop, house to latin. food is good, get there early though otherwise you might find yourself on line. when the night is over you it's early enough tko just go home or go somewhere else. Pros: great for after work, good service, good crowd Cons: bathroom is small more
