Good location and atmosphere. Service by Kelsey was superb. The decor is similar to a fine steakhouse and the name should indicate a fine selection of steak with seafood options. However, the menu was unusually limited. Replace some of those sandwich options with more steak and seafood choices. Also, I can’t believe they ran out of their best dessert, the strawberry shortcake and ice cream tower, at 4:00 in the afternoon.

The restaurant was empty (Monday, still under some Covid restrictions) and overall the food was okay, not bad, not great. However our server was high energy and good at managing the whole place. Honestly as a New Yorker, I'm not sure I'd go back, but once the city is back to life, I imagine the quality will be back.

I've been several times and their food is always good. Yesterday was no exception. I always recommend the bison and continue to do so. I had the bison grilled cheese special and it was delicious.

Love that there is a great spot in midtown to get awesome bison meatloaf! My favorite. And the onion rings are the best.

We had burgers and this is why we wanted to try this place, because my friend recommended it for their amazing bison burger. Meat wasn’t fresh, it was previously frozen for I don’t know how long. It had a very strange taste (maybe a smell from a freezer it was in). Very disappointed but at the same time understand that during those tough times they don’t have many customers, hence no opportunity to always keep fresh meat. But won’t be coming back.
Service was great though.

The food was phenomenal as well as our drinks! The only down side, was the menu has been shortened and doesn’t match the website. But, that did not change the fact they still offered a lot of options, especially burgers. We were not disappointed. They also welcomed us with a bowl of homemade pickles that were delicious!!!!!

I love Ted’s. I’ve been eating here since 2013 and was happy to see they reopened for outdoor dining. Tables are set up off the street in an atrium so it’s more secluded and less exposed than other restaurants. The service is just as prompt and friendly as it was in the time before COVID and the steaks remain exquisite.

Good overall experience at Ted’s given the limitations of outdoor dining. I must praise our server Heidi. She was amazing. Her enthusiasm & friendliness made it a pleasure to dine at Ted’s. Service like that is what will bring me back.

Food was fine for most guests. Salad meat was overcooked. Service was nice but slow. Refills were slow in coming. Very few customers in the restaurant so not sure why this would happen. Nothing really poor in nature, just not good to exceptional when you are paying 24 dollars for a burger.

I first visited this chain of restaurants in Washington DC and whenever I see one now I have to book and always have a lovely time. The food is always great the staff are always lovely. If there’s one criticism I have it’s that the waiter who introduced himself wasn’t the one we had all the way through. We had a lad to start with who brought us drinks and took our order, then a girl brought the food out and asked if I wanted another drink, and after a little too long the first lad brought it out. It wasn’t something that spoilt the evening of anything just something that threw me. Overall I’d definitely recommend Ted’s Montana NYC

Overall a decent place. Service could be better. Place was pretty empty but service was not up to where it should be. Food was decent, had to send one steak back to be cooked to the requested medium. Good kids menu and family friendly.

Very disappointing-I ordered special fish and sweet potato and broccoli sides- everything was cold- I have eaten lunch here before and was much better- they obviously need new management- would not recommend- Capital Grille down the block much better

I enjoyed my experience but my server Melissa I believe was her name wasn't patient and proceeded to continuously ask me if I was ready to go after still enjoying my food and drinks. She came back every 5 minutes and it was distracting. I felt rushed and left soon after. I did not appreciate that, not one bit.

Our server was awesome and we were seated almost immediately with a reservation. Unfortunately, at 7 PM they were already out of the fish special and even out of the basic chicken dish that was on the menu. The food was tasty and plentiful and the price is very affordable. We will go back. It was great for my teenage son.

The hosts greeted us warmly although we were early and seated us at a lovely cozy booth but that is where the excellence ended. The soup of the day was unavailable at 5pm and the clam chowder was tasteless and as thick as concrete. By 5:30 the noise level was unacceptable and the restaurant was only 3/4 full. The hot coffee we requested to warm up was served tepid and the. Refill we asked for to heat things up was over long in coming and turned out to be equally cool. Our waitress was sweet but obviously inexperienced. The bison short rib was tender and flavorful but accompanied by sauce that lacked any distinguishing character. The bison burger was properly cooked but accompanied by limp French fries that were cold and not crisp. Also onion was put on the burger and it was not supposed to be included. All in all very unsatisfactory and we won’t be returning. They do have a gluten free menu and are careful to advise you if you let them know you have concerns.
