We just jumped in here the other day to get out of the cold....the irony.....the waitress was made of ice. Although we didn't have any grief from her, she had 3 very loud shouty arguments with customers over practically nothing while we were there. I wonder if she knows what she's like and just plays to it? Either way, the... More

The service at this place just keeps getting worse. Since they have expanded this location, the price has gone up and the service has gone down. The food is average but based on price it's below average. I will not order from this place anymore. The food was delivered cold and took over an hour to get 3 blocks. The... More

We hit UM every time we visit NYC - the food is very tasty and the inside has a nice homey atmosphere. Carmella the host made us feel welcome as usual. There are a lot of negative reviews on here citing a "rude host/waitress", which I presume would be Carmella. Folks should just enjoy the upbeat banter with a genuine... More

Absolute rip off, 3 pasta dishes & pizza, they charged $121.00, might as well of gone to Hard Rock Cafe, scruffy place, and then they want $21.00 tip, what a joke

We'd been advised to visit 9th avenue to dine like a local and so were excited to try it out! The food was ok but the service was BY FAR the worst we've ever experienced. The waitress was so rude, didn't greet us as we walked in and yelled at us to sit at a table. She snatched the menus... More

Spaghetti Carbonara and a Tony Roni pizza had - both were exceptionally good. The atmosphere here is good with the servers continually shouting orders back to the counter. Small tables, we were here at 6pm and it was nearly full, but quick service. Will be back!! Note - water is served bottled and you are charged!

Being in Hell's Kitchen, there is not an expectation with Uncle Mario's for it to be superb Italian, but it was good. The establishment looks a little like what one would expect in Italy, though, with simple tables and chairs surrounded by bottles of wine, and brick walls, plus the expected brick pizza oven. Perhaps we would have been more... More

The pizza was really delicious and sangria was good. Family pizza and salad easily feeds family of 4. The service provided by wait staff was poor, very rushed and quite rude. Not friendly or welcoming. Disappointing as food was nice.

Great selection of traditional Italian food. Host was great and looked after us brilliantly with a great sense of humour and character. Food was excellent. Will certainly revisit.

This place probably has the best lasagna I've ever had! Our other dishes were good and the lady who was our server (forgot her name - sorry) was very friendly and helpful in picking out dishes. Loved her honesty. Would highly recommend this place!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
