The food was quite good. However our server was not quite on top of things. We went without drinks and then waited on the check for about 20 minutes. Would definitely go back for the food. Maybe luck out on a day she isn't working

Ridiculously close to Times Square, in fact, you can see it from the street in front of the venue. And yes they do accept reservations 😊
