Avoid this TGIF ! 9/5/2009

This is the worst Friday's I have ever been to. Especially at the front bar and the back bar , Please check your bar tab EACH time you order food or drink and be sure to ask what is on special(drink or food). Check your tab often to see if they charged you the regular price(often) or accuse / charge you for more drinks than you really had , especially if there is a group of you laughing and talking and not watching bartender, he makes you think he is buying back a round of drinks when in effect he is charging you. Pros: Location Cons: slow service, rude bartenders, dirty , lousy expense food, more

Not Worth the Price of Food 12/7/2008

If you go to a TGI Friday's in Manhattan expect to pay about $6 - $8 more per entree than you would pay anywhere else. These prices are not unusual for restaurants in Manhattan. However, the quality of the food and the poor service makes this restaurant a poor value. When I went to the restaurant with some colleagues from work, we received very poor service. The wait staff was inattentive and could not keep track of our order. The food also took an unusually long time to arrive at our table, especially considering that we all ordered a lunch special. The food was okay. It's on par with the food from any other national chain restaurant. My meal was tasty, but nothing to write home about. This restaurant is a good choice for tourists who don't know any local restaurants in the area, but I would not recommend this restaurant to any native New Yorkers Pros: Quick Seating, Wide Selection of Food Cons: Poor Service, Expensive Food more

Expensive rubbish 7/11/2008

This was the first time I had eaten at TGI will also be the last time I eat at TGI Fridays. Burgers served on stale buns, cold fries, dry chicken fingers, cold soup (french onion, not gespachio) and to top it off $27 each for one course with a drink. I would go next door to Annie Moores & get good food served warm! Pros: Nice array of stuffed animals on the walls Cons: The food!!! more

Terrible Service 8/10/2007

I've been to this TGIF before - I work a block away. I've been to others as well. I went with 2 coworkers for lunch on Wednesday, 8/8/07. We arrived about 1 PM & ordered our drinks & food. It took about 20 minutes to just receive water & another 20 minutes to receive the drinks we ordered. Bear in mind that we only have an hour for lunch. The waitress was new & didn;t have a strong command of the English language. When I asked if they had gravy for the mashed potatoes that came with my order, she didn't understand what "gravy" was...Hello??? I ordered the Jack Daniels ribs - they come with potatoes & a choice of soup or salad. I requested the Caesar salad, which should be served before the meal. My order was served without the salad or the Jack Daniel sauce that's supposed to come with the ribs.. When I asked for the Caesar salad, the lettuce was warm & limp, & was served WITH the meal - I returned it & never got another salad. I then had to ask for the JD sauce. I finally got so fed up that I asked for the manager - his demanor was less than entusiastic. He didn't seem to care about the abundance of screw ups. I insisted that he take money off of our bill - which he did. But that wasn't the point - I wanted to enjoy my lunch with my coworkers. Needless to say, I WILL NEVER go back to this particular TGIF's - I feel this particular location needs a complete overhaul - from the manager on down. My past experience with TGIF's has been very positive - this one seems to be an anomaly. In [2] words - DON'T GO...there's a slew of other restaurants in the area which are very good. Pros: Nothing Cons: Service, Management, etc. more

Bad food, Bad Service, Expensive. 10/22/2006

I normally love TGI Friday's but this place was the worst. We went at around 1:30pm when lunch time tends to die down and we didnt get out of there until after 3:00pm. Our waiter was non existent, the food was cold and they got our orders wrong and on top of that the prices were double what they normally are in the rest of the country. Avoid this place at all costs!! Pros: Nothing Cons: Everything more

Eat Garbage, Empty Wallet 9/18/2005

It is RIDICULOUS how terrible this place is. The prices are Times Square worthy, but incredibly overpriced for food that tastes like doo doo. The staff has been rude and impolite too many times to get another visit out of me again. The food is microwaved, I swear to it. Pros: Location Cons: Expensive, Food, Service more

pay lots to eat crap 5/26/2005

Our bill was $52 for two drinks and two appetizers. We couldn't finish any of it because the appetizers were overcooked and the drinks were straight cheap liquor. Bad idea. If you're hungry and nothing else is open in the area (as we were), go hungry. Cons: taste, service more

Awful food and service, Great drinks 7/30/2002

I've been to many great T.G.I. Friday's in my time, but this is NOT one of them. The atmosphere is fun like most T.G.I's, but the food and service was awful. I was suprised by the quality of food since I've always enjoyed dining in other T.G.I's, but so far, I don't recommend any of the one's in New York (Manhattan). Thankfully, the mudslide (which they were out of the first time I went) was amazing the second time (when they actually had them again.) I'm sorry, but how can you be "out of mudslides" on a Friday night! Very disappointing. Pros: good drinks, casual atmosphere Cons: expensive, poor food, poor service more

  • In Short
    The much-copied look of hardwood floors, decorative stained glass, checked tablecloths, brass rails and walls filled with knickknacks has been a staple at this restaurant...
