Since discovering Frank Sinatra this restaurant is Mecca and I finally had the privilege to dine there- it did not disappoint. The aura, the professionalism and friendliness of the staff, and the food! A NYC institution you have to experience!

I think Patsy’s is living on its past reputation. My husband’s veal was delicious, but my cannelloni was not good.

I don't know off hand, but go to their website and check the menu, which I think is posted there. You can also e-mail them and ask them. They have a facebook page too
