For a great steak, you can’t beat Ted’s. The service is always fantastic, the menu suits everyone and the location is great. We love coming here for special occasions and regular dinners.

Nice, generic place, can’t tell if it’s an upscale country bistro or just a tired midtown beige eatery. Tortilla soup was quite good but over seasoned. Kids Mac n cheese was inedible. Bison short rib was tender and well cooked but portion was half fat. All else was fine but unremarkable. Low value for what you get - good, uninspired American food.

The food at Ted's Montana Grill was (and always is) outstanding and professionally prepared as ordered. it is a great place for a couple and the entire family because the menu seems to meet the appetites of a wide range of people.
Whenever we are attending an event at Radio City Music Hall we always make a reservation at Ted's
The servers are aware of your plans and exceed good service to reach great service in helping you to have a wonderful night out on the town.
I recommend it to anyone

The only place in the city to get great bison burgers or steak. The meat is sweet and tender and leaner that beef. There is a nice variety of choices for the sides. The wine list is extensive with nice selections of wine by the glass also. The wait staff and service is very attentive, friendly, helpful, and unobtrusive.

We had a big group and this was a great place. A little surprised on how early it closed on a Saturday night, (10 PM) however, they were nice enough to say, you can sit and hang out, no problem. We had a group of 7 and everyone was pleased. We had one person with Celiac disease, which is why we chose this restaurant and they did not disappoint! Very attentive to the issues of cross contamination and we had no problem. Great food and excellent service from Quinn!

We always enjoy this place, but the A/C was out and it was HOT during our meal. We all still had a great time but would have expected a tiny discount or something for putting up with the discomfort. Our waiter, Lincoln, was fabulous!

Overall I had a good experience at Ted’s Montana Grill. Positives, the decor with the bison on the wall and the booths was a relaxing cozy experience. My Bison pot roast was tender juicy and flavorful. The waitress was attentive and very accommodating. The negatives the strawberry shortcake had no cake. It was a thin wafer covered with a pint of ice cream and strawberries. I recommend this restaurant just skip the shortcake.

We had a great experience at Ted's! Had a late dinner there on Saturday night and the food was delicious. Service was even better. This seems like a great spot for families or large groups before/after a show.

I had lunch with a friend here after walking by the place for months and having my mouth water from the cooking smells.
Our server was very attentive and professional and the food was mostly delicious. We both had bison burgers and were very happy with them but the sweet potato fries left a lot to be desired. They were mushy and flavorless.

We went there for gluten free menu. Unfortunately they brought out a burger on regular bun. It was apparent the waitress had no idea that if she just switched out the bun the burger still is not gluten free. At that point we had no faith in the staff to provide a gluten free meal and couldn’t take the chance of being sick since we were seeing a show. It was extremely disappointing.

I am from Atlanta, GA where Ted Turner founded the Ted's Montana Grill. We frequent the restaurants around Metro Atlanta. We were astounded to learn the Ted's Montana Grill in NYC has been there for 11 years. We have passed it MANY times during our trips to NYC, but never knew it existed. We will now make it part of every trip! Being from the south, we love the concept, the food, and especially the fact you can order SWEET TEA!

Service was quick even though it was busy and packed. Food was excellent and portions were large. Deserts were what you would expect off a regular menu even though we were taking advantage of restaurant week special. Would recommend and would return as a matter of fact we are going to book a reservation for the Atlanta location for a planned fall trip

We arrived early for our reservation and were immediately seated. Our server, Quinn, did not rush us, allowing a choice of beverages, then asking for appetizers and meal, and allowing a nice amount of time between appetizer and main course. We were not rushed at all.
The Bison nachos were exceptionally good, as were the burgers.

We will be back the next time we are attending an event at Radio City

We've eaten here several times before when going to a show - always had a great meal and service. This time it was a mid-week visit 5:30 reservation for two. We arrived a bit early but the place was empty except for the bar area. Angie was our server and made some great recommendations for us! One shared appetizer, 2 drinks and dinner came to about $60.00/pp plus the tip. The beef filet was cooked perfectly and the meat on the bison short ribs fell off the bone! No dessert this time. A very pleasant experience - again!

Met business associates at Ted's. A classic American menu with sandwiches, salads, burgers and entrees. Very happy that everyone in the group was able to find something they enjoyed. Good location for mid-town Manhattan.

Después de tener confirmación por e mail de nuestra reserva, nos presentamos a la hora exacta en el restaurante. No nos dejaron cenar alegando que estaban haciendo unas reparaciones. Todavía había un par de mesas cenando. Nuestra reserva era para las 21,45 y cerraban a las 22 horas. Tras enseñarles el mail de confirmación de opentable dijeron que lo sentían pero que imposible. Nos marchamos decepcionados después de decirles educadamente que tenían un problema con Opentable y que daríamos parte. Una pena

I went for dinner with a friend for restaurant week. So the meal was definitely on par with what I would consider a good deal. We ordered the Caesar salad which was good. I could have used a little more dressing but, it definitely was abundant enough in size. Not sure what type of greens were used but it was pretty healthy. There was a huge difference in the cut of meat that I received versus my companion which I thought was strange. She doesn't eat a lot so she didn't complain. The meat could have been more flavorful and it was kind of tough. The food, overall was just ok and it wasn't really piping hot when It came to the table. The dessert was decadent enough. We had the Brownie with Kahlua and topped with ice cream. We both enjoyed the meals.

I can't really say that I would be making a planned trip back but if I am in the neighborhood, I'll stop by for happy hour.

The service was outstanding supported by an extremely charming waitress. We, a party of five, had different dishes. All arrived within the required cooking time at once. Every dish was superb. So was the red wine. Initially it was a little loud due to a happy hour party. But we were able to get a table at the other end of the room.

To sum it up. We had a very pleasant stay at Ted's Montana Grill. We will be back!

We came from sightseeing and walking miles to discover this jewel. Although we were dressed casually we felt comfortable and were greeted warmly. The server was friendly and attentive but not overly so. The food was fresh and delicious. Bison meatloaf highly recommended if you have a hearty appetite.

This isn't Michelin star dining, but is excellent in its category. Plenty of space between tables so that you aren't listening to your neighbours' conversation. The staff know the menu well and are helpful, without pushing extra sales excessively. The kitchen cooks to the customer's order, including blue steaks, that are tender and flavoursome. If you want to try American food in New York, this is the place to go.
