Dive restaurants??

I was thinking of taking my parents for dinner to Fish and Arturo's. Then I read somewhere they were dives. My parents like new adventures, but I don't want them to feel uncomfortable. What's your thoughts?

    i haven't been to fish in several years, but i used to go every now and then and definitely wouldn't call it a dive. there were some complaints on this board about the service, though i never had a problem.

      In my opinion, there is no way Arturo's is a dive.

      Classic NY, probably. But a dive, definitely not.

        You can go to a lot of adventurous restaurants without going to dives. Why don't you go to a cool ethnic restaurant in the east village? How about cafe mogodor for amazing cous cous? or caracas arepa bar? or dim sum in chinatown that's not on canal?
