a month ago Sardi's is fine: It is an awesome fixture on Broadway. The history is deep, and the caricatures are absolutely stunning; they tell the story of theater's history. My three stars is only because, for everything there is to do in NYC, you...More

Book early because the primo times are usually taken. We had an 8 pm show and had a 5:15 reservation. The food is excellent and the service was wonderful. We were given a corner table and glad for two reasons: the room was noisy in...More

A NYC landmark and a pre-theater tradition! The service is excellent, with someone always filling your water glass or bringing you bread. We had the Frech Onion soup which was very good on a bitter cold night. Also had the mozzarella and tomato which was...More

Seriously, having been in existence for nearly 100 years you'd think they know something about cooking and serving, they don't! Inattentive, no smiles or personality and aloof! The food is awful! Just awful!

We had matinee tickets to see Kinky Boots and were early and wanted a pre-show cocktail. We hadn't been to Sardi's in 20 years or so. And guess what? Still the place we remember. And that's a good thing. The upstairs bar was busy but...More

Sardi's is one of those iconic restaurants that you must do to say you've been. There is nothing to complain about here, although I cannot say I was overwhelmed by the food for the price here. Staff was very knowledgeable and polite. Food was very...More
