Mickey Mantle's Restaurant
Since opening in1988, Mickey Mantle's Restaurant and sport bar has established itself as a New York Institution, one of the city's most popular restaurants and private party locations. Mickey Mantle's is the site of several live sports radio programs that are broadcast weekly, countless gala events featuring top celebrities, sports and entertainment memorabilia auctions and viewings provided by Gotta Have It! Collectibles, Inc.
Good ambiance. Lots of sports memoriabilia. In these types of places I always feel the food is diminshed to make way for the sports themes. So I don't expect much in the way of taste and as usual the taste was mediocre. The price is high and the service is slow. You are paying for the name.
Ate at Mickey Mantle's 3 times whilst in New York as we were staying in the Helmsley Park lane next door. The food was excellent every time, the portions were huge and the staff were very friendly. Ok, so the prices are a little steep but what do you expect. This is NYC. If I end up back in New York I will definitely be paying them a visit again.
I was just in town brielfy with a frined and we stopped by. The food was really good and the portions were very generous.
I mainly wanted to appologise to the lovely young man that served us for my drunken passes! I'm sorry that I've forgotten your name.
Although the ease of getting in on a Saturday night and the very nice hostesses didn't reveal what lay ahead. The service started out well, until I hit the bathrooms, they were gross, especially for what seemed to be a nice establishment with pricey food. Then, when the meals arrived, my son's spaghetti dinner, listed on the KIDS menu for a very steep $9.95 was in a kids size bowl, just spaghetti, no apple sauce, fruit, ice cream; not even a drink included. I was beyond words that something that cost not more than 20 cents to make (small amount of spaghetti and water) cost nearly $10. When I mentioned this to my waiter I was very rudely replied back that, that was it. I felt very ripped off - like $10 ripped off, so I spoke to the manager, again in a non-threatening manner, just to mention that it's an obvious obsurdity to charge so much for something that includes nothing and is obviously not expensive to make. So, I recieved a rude reply, that he couldn't do anything about it, I was told he'd talk to Chris. No mention of who Chris was. When I further asked him for Chris's number the manager threw down a business card and walked off. I can honestly say, this is the most ripped off I've ever felt. If they lowered the price or added some included cheap sides, I would have dealt, but this was beyond what I could ever accept. All this and, they messed up on my husbands fish, gave him the sandwhich instead of the meal, afterwhich they preceded to put the exact same fish on the meal-plate and sent it right out overdone.
Everyone was rude; really I thought it was known that the bad rap about NY was just that, a bad rap, guess I was wrong.
Went to Mickey Mantle's for the first time in my life last week for an event showcase. What a great place. Fun, exciting, great food, great stuff on the walls, great service, mucho televisions. Stayed after the event to drink a few and watch the Yankees opener my only gripe is the alchohol price, but i guess to have a Central Park South address they must have to pay an over market rent. A must see for all New Yorkers, sports fans and families.
