Absolutely – If you're going to see "The Producers" this is the pre-theatre spot ... right next door, literally, to the St. James. Good service, excellent food, and a nice atmosphere. A little crowded but the spirits are good, so who cares? Well worth a trip. We'll be back.
Great pre-theater – We dined here last weekend before we saw "Avenue Q", one block over. We had such a great experience, we'll definitely be back! The food was delicious, the service spectacular and the prices extremely reasonable, especially for midtown. For three entrees, three desserts, an appetizer and several drinks, our bill came to only about $150. Can't wait to go again!
Pre show dinner – I was disappointed in our trip to this restaurant. Although my food was excellent my dinner partners were somewhat disappointed. With no prix-fixed menu the expense jumped rather quickly as ala carte items(salads and 2 desserts) were added bringing our bill for four to nearly $200 with only three drinks. One of my pet peeves is that restaurants in New York refuse to issue separate checks to couples dining together. It would make their patron's life so much easier with so little effort on their part! Also despite assurances that we were in plenty of time(6:30PM) for an 8:30 show (Producer- next door) it took forever to get the waiter to get our check to us and paid, so we rushed out at 7:59. Lastly the table was wobbly and cramped.
What a pleasant surprise!!!! – As part of a bus group trip into the city, we chose Angus Mcindoe's based on a recommendation from someone at Joe Allen's. We needed accommodations for 50 people and Angus was able to give us the third floor of his restaurant for our entire party. I can't tell you how surprised we were both by the quality of the food and the quality of the service. This is a "great" find on theatre row and I'm so happy I found it. I now mention it to everyone I know who's going to a show.
Great find! – This place is a find within this area, or anywhere for that matter. The service was friendly, the atmosphere was relaxed, and the food was really good. When I think of Times Square I think of gaudy, touristy places. This had me feeling that I was in the West Village getting ready to see some live Jazz, not The Producers. What was even better was that it was that expensive.
Before or After Theater--or anytime! – Angus Mcindoe, the former fabulous and friendly manager of Joe Allen's, has opened up his own place, right next to "The Producers" home, and it's really great. The space is terrific, boasting three stories; two for dining and the third is a nice bar scene. The ever-smiling Scotsman Mcindoe really makes you feel like you're his best friend stopping in for a bite at his place. There is a nice feta cheese salad, a great filet and, fantastic mussels, and the monkfish I had was to die for. And it's all pretty reasonable. And you never know who you might see...Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane are investors in the place!
Nice place, saw some stars – Ate here based on what I read on this site, so thought I'd return the favor. Four of us arrived around 4:30, right after a matinee and we had the place entirely to ourselves. By 5:30 it was packed, so I suggest reservations. The great thing was our server never made us feeled rushed and he was funny.
The four meals included the risotto w/shrimp, penne w/sausage, quiche, and vegetables w/polenta. I had the vegetables and wasn't very please especially with the price. However, everyone else raved about their meals. So, poor choice on my part. It was still a nice experience and we got to see a lot of "The Producers" cast eating dinner between shows, which is always neat even if you want to be coorl and don't want to admit it!
It was a little more expensive than I expected, so just keep that in mind.
