    Sometimes Good Dining Is Better Than Sex

    Please understand I'm a UWS New Yorker who can be pretty demanding when I'm hungry. All I can say is that after reading the bad reviews for PJ Clarke's UWS, I was surprised to get brilliant service and wonderful food. My server from SC was Xavier and he could not have been more helpful and gracious. Even the hostess and bus boy were terrific. I had a chopped salad appetizer with Feta, chick peas, lettuces and then amazing Mussels Provencal with whole grape tomatoes cut in half. The portion was very generous and for the first time in my life of eating mussels, every mussel was open and edible. It never happened before. The fries did not come out hot, but I politely asked for crisp, piping hot fries and they arrived a short time later. The iced cappuccino I ordered was perfection. The prices were incredibly reasonable. Yes, the restaurant is noisy, but I took a seat all the way in the back on the raised balcony banquette and it was like hearing noise, but not having it bothersome, as if I was an observer. The windowed walls were open and although it was a beautiful evening in NYC (Aug. 29), it was still too warm for me & this section had great a/c going. I could not have had a better experience anywhere.

    Some New Yorkers are never happy!

    I am a Manhattanite who attends events at Lincoln Center frequently. Although obviously not haute cuisine, I think PJ's is good for being convenient, economical, and tasty. For all of you who hated your dessert, try their cinnamon ice cream. It's delicious.

    Had hopes but they were dashed

    I live near Lincoln Center and am reconciled to the fact that most of the restaurants around here are for "captive audiences," i.e. places people have to go to because their going to a performance nearby. So when I dine out, I try to avoid my immediate neighborhood. But when P.J. Clarke's moved in, I had hopes based on their seniority as a New York institution. What a disappointment! The service is poor, the food is mediocre, the noise level is high (like the prices), and the tables are cramped. I guess it would be ok for a pint at the bar; not for much else. This location has seen so many restaurants over the years. I still miss O'Neal's Balloon, which was on this site a few decades ago.

    Poor Service

    We went to PJ Clark's prior to seeing the Nutcracker. We were five adults and three children. We waited almost 45 minutes for our food to arrive. When it did, our orders were not correct.

    Wow what a let down.

    Plain and simple this place is busy, packed and it is most definitely not good. my wine glass was nowhere near an average wine glass pour. On top of that the wine glass was dirty. ($14 Pinot Noir). the burger bun was terrible and basically mushed into a paper thin tortilla. The tatar tots were completely tasteless, the side of mushrooms were even worse. I'm still in awe at how this place keeps busy. I would have to say its location + tourists is the reason why.

    Not worth it

    This please is a madhouse. It is noisy, smelly, dark and you will feel rushed to eat fast and get out as quickly as you can. The food is beyond mediocre and bland and it is overpriced for the quality. The pasta I had (baked mac and cheese with peas and bacon) was revolting, undercooked and with basically no cheese. And it was beyond overpriced for the quality. The pasta was in a puddle of oil with undercooked bacon, and although it was supposed to be "au gratin" it was not! The few breadcrumbs on the top were not even warmed up properly. My friend's burger was as bland as it could be. The appetizer we shared (fried calamari) were coated with very thick layers of dough which was super-greasy, not crispy and the calamari were chewy and tasteless. Avoid this place if you can. It will be a total disappointment.

    Are they kidding?

    I am a New Yorker. I have no problem paying for good food. I do have a problem paying for virtually no food. Three omelettes, which are accompanied by 1 slice of toast and a chicken sandwich with a pickle ended up costing $90 with tax and tip. Yes there were 3 coffees also. I know Lincoln center, but $90 cmon.
