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.

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.

Delicious food. Should be more busy but the refurbishment in the area may stop walks-ins - definitely look for it though as it’s worth a visit. The bison steak was the best steak ever according to our son!!

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.

Was noisier than normal during mealtime there was a large group with 4-5 kids unattended not well behaved in a manner befitting a place of nature. And later on a smaller group of people mostly comprised of kids and fewer adults mostly as chaperones more well behaved but still childish. This is not a place for groups of minors that are not properly disciplined by their so-called parents.

My first time at Ted's Montana Grill and I would definitely go back. Service was great, ambiance was very nice, place was clean. The food was ok, priced fairly, decent portion. I was happy to have a nice meal in NYC before a show and it didn't break the bank. Got crowded around 7 but we had a booth, so it was plenty private for us. I sincerely enjoyed.

I ordered a bison buffer medium rare and it was well done. I had to ask to have it remade and my husband was finished eating when I got my food. It was good when it was made correctly but I would’ve liked to have eaten with my husband.

The food was very tasty. The Ted's signature margarita was weak but the jalapeño huckleberry was terrific. 50 bucks for a 16 oz steak is a tad pricey but it was well prepared. The sides were all good! Asparagus, mushrooms and a bison nachos appetizer all hit the spot. The waiter and bartender were very friendly and quick.

The cedar planked salmon was done perfectly, and they are happy to let you “choose” the side you prefer—baked sweet potato rather than garlic mashed did it for me. Service was a highlight—if you’re lucky you’ll get Mariana!
Everyone enjoyed their meals and the dining experience.

We were sat in a dark corner of the restaurant where the low lighting made it hard to even read the menus. It got even darker when a cloud moved in front of the sun as if someone turned down the lights more. Once our waitress took the order, she would disappear, nowhere to be found until the food was served and then disappear again. Food (we all ordered burgers) was OK. The women in our group complained that the old fashioned "soap" in the bathrooms (powder) was making their hands dry. I thought it was kind of old school and did not mind it. Overall, no ambience, too dark, food was just OK - we will not be going back.
