In the context of this being our favorite restaurant where we've eaten in the main dining room at least 2-3 times a year for over 8 years, a slight critique this time. Tasting menu with wine pairings, perfection. As always. Each course was spectacularly composed and wines complemented them beyond expectations. Halibut and squab were favorites, but again everything sublime.\n\nThis time though service a bit uneven. Server came in and out, while wait staff overtly hovered and in some instances took plates away while one of us was still eating and wine in glass. Since there were empty tables for our whole time, it wasn't that we were holding things up. Especially since the rushed service turned too slow between squab course and dessert. Server and sommelier switched randomly and it felt a bit chaotic. We've never experienced this before.\n\nBut. Again. There is no better restaurant for us in Manhattan. The service was just a bit off this time.

Chose Gramercy Tavern as our celebratory lunch after getting married at City Hall. This place had been recommended to me, and from the moment we stepped in the restaurant it did not disappoint...The staff were welcoming and attentive, and the food and wine was simply sublime, each course proving to be tastier than the previous. The 5 course seasonal tasting lunch with paired wines was exceptional value at $143 per person, and with gratuities included, even more so. A fantastic choice for that 'special' meal.

It is way over priced, I have been to all NY top restaurants, this being the only one I disliked.\nI also thought the menu was very limited , with a couple of fish , one soup , couple of meat and lamb , and one chicken. Not much to choose from .\nWe only had one dessert at the table , I'm very partial to chocolate , but this one looked very good , but not good at all to the palate.\nWay over priced for what you get.\nSorry

My wife and I are making this restaurant a must do for our periodic NYC trips. The food is incredible as well as the service. We love the 6 course tasting menu with the wine pairing. I also like to add a cheese plate after the last savory course. The staff compensation is very European now that they have eliminated tipping/gratuity. I wish more fine dining restaurants did this because , while I care about the price, I go there to celebrate a special occasion and it is nice to know that the price is the price. The next step would be for them to take my card at the beginning then hand me a receipt when I walk out. I love it.

What this restaurant lacks in service and ambience it makes up for with consistently delicious if not super inventive food. There were several dishes on the recent tasting menu that I would prefer over most dishes Ive been served at more acclaimed and more expensive restaurants in the city (11 Madison, Per Se, Jean-Georges)... The only sour note of a recent meal was a dessert course... which verged on inedible. I would happily eat here regularly if it was in my neighborhood, and I'd recommend it to friends.

We were lucky to make a reservation on the same day for my birthday celebration at 5:30 pm, a little early but grateful to get in. We were not aware of the prix-fixe menu but It turned out to be the most extraordinary dining experiences we shared (the four of us were unanimously in agreement!) We paired our dinner with wine and each was a bit more exquisite than the next. \nOur server Steven was attentive, provided wonderful recommendations and was a delight!\nThe clams were incredible and the Dessert was divine~\nWe ended up leaving around 10:30 pm, so our (5) course dinner was about 5 hours.\nA Very happy birthday and certainly grateful for the delicious food and wine (although very expensive!) but no tip required.

The food is obviously incredible and that's a given but it's the service that really sets this place apart. None of the stuff are pompous about what they do; they know the quality of the restaurant and food, and therefore can have fun with you. We were laughing with our waiter and it certainly adds to the whole experience!

GT is a classic and really holds up after all these years. However, the service had some major flaws which is disturbing as the tip is included so one really has no facility for tipping up or down depending of how it goes. They put on a good show, but the attention to detail at this level was lacking and disappointing.

The reviews were so good for this restaurant so out of all of the restaurants in N.Y C., I chose this one to celebrate my daughter's birthday. I couldn't name one thing that was good about our lunch experience while dining at Gramercy Tavern. We ate in the more formal area of the restaurant so that we could experience the wonderful service that I expected after reading the reviews and had made reservations several weeks in advance. After being seated in an area that was too noisy because of a large party nearby, we requested a different table and that meant that we had to go back to the front of the restaurant and wait. It was odd because the restaurant wasn't fully booked, many tables were empty. \n\n Once we were seated at a quieter table, we sat for at least 10 minutes before I asked a waitress if we could have water and bread. The service never improved and it was ridiculous because we also sat for a very long time between our salad and our main course. Once the main course came, the waitress said that she had held it so that we weren't rushed with our salad. Very poor service! We had been there for over an hour before receiving our main course. It ended up taking over 2 hours to share a salad and eat a main course. \n\n My daughter and I each ordered the sea bass and hers was fishy tasting and was dark in color . It tasted so bad that my daughter thought it would possible make her sick. Mine tasted fine, but the sauce and side dish of sweet potato (looked like shredded carrots and parsnips) was sweet tasting and didn't compliment the fish. The Broccoli also on the side was so bitter, that it was inedible. I sent her fish back!\n\n I have never had such a bad lunch experience from the beginning to the end. Not only was the service poor , but the food was of poor quality. \n\nThis will definitely be a birthday lunch that we'll never forget, I'm just glad that my daughter didn't get sick from the bad/spoiled fish!

Gramercy has been touted a long time by others, so we decided to give it a try. Overall, an excellent meal - we typically opt for tasting menus to make comparisons easier, as well as to have an exceptional experience - with very good service. There were minor lapses, like initially being seated near a service area, but changed after we complained, and coffee service that came after the dessert was provided, but again, complained and it was quickly rectified.

It took us a while to finally dine here and it was AMAZING! Every moment from the greeting, to being seated, dining, service... was superb. We came here for my birthday and got a great corner table. The surprise birthday cake was out of this world! OpenTable reservations gets you a table in the dining room which means pre fixe or tasting menu only but it was the perfect choice for a special occasion. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be coming back!

We have long ago discarded the notion that a 'Valentine's Day' dinner need happen on February 14th. So on the 15th we landed at Gramercy Tavern with the ridiculous expectation that we could enjoy the highly regarded dining room prix fixe three course option in 1 Hr 15 Min - in and out the door - to make a show. The staff was spectacular in meeting our time constraints; the food was superb; and ambiance was delightful. While this was our first visit, we will most assuredly return!

Gramercy Tavern is a true NYC classic. The service is impeccable and the food is delicious. It's a place where you can't really go wrong. Though they don't do a great job of advertising it, but the restaurant is very friendly and thoughtful about allergies, including gluten allergies. They have delicious gluten free bread and will try their best to make a dish gluten free (obviously within reason). Such a refreshing experience, especially when some restaurants make little to no effort to accommodate even legitimate allergies. I would highly recommend eating here for a special occasion, but if you have the budget to make Gramercy Tavern a regular part of your NYC restaurant rotation then do so! It's the sort of place that has the ability to make a random Wednesday night, or even a Monday lunch, feel like a special occasion.

Imagine a place where food is divinely delicious, the service attentive to just the right degree, the lighting is warm, the decor is easy on the eye, and the restaurant is QUIET too! You can have a conversation with your friends while you are dining. Gramercy Tavern gets it that conviviality includes being able to hear what your fellow diners are saying. We ordered off the shorter prix fixe menu. Fabulous smoked trout; ethereal. Everybody loved their entrees: arctic char (my fave), lamb, port, black bass. Great desserts and cheeses. The restaurant has a newly updated wine list with many new choices. Since we were celebrating, we went all out, but the wine list covers a lot of ground and there is something for everyone. Perfect service, friendly and attentive, but not hovering or precious.

Wonderful as ever. Gramercy Tavern always provides a great meal and the current menu is outstanding. That wouldn't typically be enough though to make me leave a review. What stood out in this visit was the service and accommodation of a current food allergy. I'm nursing a baby who is allergic to dairy, including butter, and soy. This has made dining out complicated in general, but Gramercy Tavern found a way for me to enjoy the tasting menu with a few tweaks and without the worry that by eating by out I'd be looking at days of a cranky not sleeping 3 mo old. While we do have the fortune of visiting GT a few times a year we usually eat at the bar and thus did not get this good treatment bc we are regulars, it's because they treat service as such a key ingredient to the meal. The only person who may not have liked our meal was the babysitter as everything was so nice we stayed out longer than expected. Thanks for a great night!

I've enjoyed many meals here in the past, but unfortunately, I'm finding it harder and harder to justify the cost of dining here, especially knowing I can find better values elsewhere in Manhattan. A recent visit confirmed this for me. The pork loin was chewy and overcooked. Our server forgot to put an order in for coffee (I had to finally ask where it was; he barely apologized) and the wait between courses was unbearably long. The desserts were unimpressive, especially a take on a fried funnel cake with apples that was just plain weird. I think the icing on the cake for me was the $26 martini, made with Belvedere, no less, I drink I have enjoyed in several Manhattan restaurants for $16-$18.

The wait staff are professional. Service was spot on at the table and staff responded well to requests. One can see and appreciate their quality and dedication. Execution was very slow however. The wait staff seemed distracted even though the room was not busy. The feeling one got from service was transactional and not fully engaged. \nOne of the staff was miffed (I won't describe the circumstances as he or she does not merit reprimand) saying glumly that policy prohibited tipping. It seemed to me as if they had strict orders to refuse tipping and possibly had been read the riot act by the owners. Is it not possible that hardworking staff dislikes the no tipping policy? I confess I do not.

Another restaurant we visited based on the numerous reviews and recommendations only to be disappointed! We could only get a lunch time reservation so we went with that, maybe the restaurant is more energetic during the evening but at lunch it was a rather bland, boring experience. \nStaff were friendly, food is as bland as the atmosphere! Maybe the bar is worth a try, you don't need a reservation here but would have to wait from what I could see. \nDon't waste your time if you know good food! Expectation is a somewhat upscale lunch however you are met with a dining room where you can only feel out of place and overdressed if you have made anything above the minimum effort before leaving home. On the other-hand cheap menu if you really want to try it!

Given the hype and 28 food rating (Zagat) it was disappointing. To have to resign to Steak tar tar for 1st course is weak. There were some good stuff like trout, lamb pasta, and some nice deserts yet I would have to say the main course offerings could have been better as well and they were using great things on the tasting side of the menu as a hooker, yet that was not appropriate with 2 teens. Simply put the offering and the execution of the offering did not stack up to a 28 rating or a top ten restaurant experience from Mr. hospitality. The 'Modern' was significantly better. $675 for 4 including 2 teens and we were out the door. Please make sure they receive this constructive feedback.\n\nCharlie\n315 783-0707

I went Gramercy Tavern on New Year’s Day evening at 5:30 with my son and Boyfriend with high expectations. I chose the 3-course menu, my son and BF chose the tasting menu. The maître d’ induced us to get the truffle tortellini special., neglecting to advise us of the surcharge. After we decided on 2 orders of truffle tortellini, she advised us that there was $40 surcharge for each dish. She apologized for not mentioning earlier. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!! And the truffle was not of high quality!\nOverall the food was decent, but not memorable. The dessert was a bit disappointing. As the room became crowed, the level of the service became inferior. Our maître d’ lacked warmth and was somewhat robotic.\nMy son loved the bread. I asked for 3 pieces(twice) to take home…. Sadly, there was only one piece in the bag!\nWe’ve been to some of the fine dining restaurants in Manhattan, for example EMP, Le Bernardin. Jean-Georges… I must say Gramercy Tavern is not in their league.

The food is excellent but the service was the bit that surprised us. Our waiter barely spoke to us and we had to ask to order and then is was 45 min by the time our first meals arrived.

An all time favorite as hits on all the important notes - fabulous food, beautiful yet cozy ambiance, and attentive service. Always a memorable dining experience. Flavor combinations are so well put together. Experienced service staff which can quickly sense the pace at which you wish to dine or if something is not quite to your liking. For example, the wine I selected was very good and even though I indicated it was fine to pour (which it was and would have been very enjoyable), our waiter could tell it wasn't 100% what I wanted. He brought over another selection which had that additional edge of robustness and exceeded my expectations. All hospitality services/tips are included which I quite like.

After hearing so many good things about Gramercy Tavery from our adult children, we had been waiting for our next trip to New York to reserve. It didn't disappoint. The food was excellent (vegetarian tasting menu). Most memorable: the mushroom course, the smoked leeks, & the rolls; the parsnip cake was outstanding. Service was smooth, professional, and unobtrusive. It helps to be welcomed at the door, and it made good sense to ask if we were celebrating an occasion (we wish), were in a hurry (we weren't), and are vegetarian (not). The ambiance is comfortable, beautiful, and unpretentious. We tried to get into the tavern the next day, but failed. One drawback to GT--snagging a seat. Thanks for the great meal!

Save your money! For years I have wanted to go to the gramercy tavern and finally took my wife and daughters on our last trip to NYC. We all had the tasting menu which was over $1000 for the 4 of us. The food was average but the service was awful. I paired mine with wine but the courses and wine didn't come at the correct time. I tried to order a glass of wine for my daughter who is 20 which the state of New York says I can and is legal but the staff wouldn't allow it. They made my daughter feel awful and ruined her day. The manager came over and could not have been more rude and condescending. I would never go back!

This was my second visit to Gramercy Tavern. The food was very good however, the temperature of the plate when served could have been a bit warmer. Also, I had to ask for my waterglass to be refilled frequently. The waiter was not on top of that. What was interesting was the fact that this is a non-tipping restaurant. Not even the coat check person. I guess it is built into the bill. \nAll in all, I would go back.

Grammercy Tavern did not disappoint. I was last her 10+ years ago and from those minimal visits it was always at the top of my list in terms of favorite NYC restaurant. When you look at the menu, it may not be the most exciting or innovative, but the food is always excellent! I think the service is what really sets it apart. They are there and attentive when you need them but then its like they disappear when you are talking to your dinner companions, then miraculously appearing seconds after you think about a question about the food.

Came with my partner to experience the institution which is the restaurant, and was not disappointed. Though we argued about an upcoming vacation through the scallops, I distinctly remember wanted to drink the green sauce out of the dish. Our conversation recovered, and we happily ate each course we talked about the decor and the old school uniforms. There was more seafood than I expected. Everything was excellent. I will say the wine pairing was a tad aggressive - we started with a cocktail prior to the meal, and I was a bit too drunk to enjoy the cheese (I'm told it was dank tho). Neither of us quite remember getting home.\n\nLovely time.

Was in NY for vacation with a long list of restaurants to try. Gramercy was by far the best. We ate dinner in the dining room. We did have a loud business party next to us but everything else was so great that they were easy to overlook. Coming from a super casual area I wasn't sure of the dress code but everyone seemed to be dressed in either their very best winter casual outfits, business or some were dressier. I didn't feel out of place in dark pants and boots more geared for rain. Not all of the men had a jacket but if not they had a nice shirt. Classic is the word that comes to mind. It was a super relaxed atmosphere with great service to make you feel like a king. The food was outstanding and I never came across anything that I did not like. Each dish had it's own set of great flavors yet all courses blended well. We even tried a 3-star Michelin rated restaurant while in town and I still had the very best overall experience at Gramercy.

Never disappoints!! This is food at it's finest craftsmanship. I was a bit ambivalent to their new no-tipping policy. It felt weird to just sign the check and go, but they went out of their way to insist. Prices have changed to accomodate. However, when the coat check also refused a tip, it suddenly came together. Never really followed what outstanding personal service a coat check provided.

This was my first experience at a Union Square restaurant and it was absolutely everything I had hoped for. As a hospitality worker, and a disciple of Setting The Table, my partner and I sat in awe of the way we were attended to. The food was wonderful. As a guest, to engage w/ servers is to instantly make a friend behind the scenes; they were bringing us spectacular wines off of the by the glass list, chatting us up about our nerdy interests, and sending us home w/ a bunch of cookies because we wanted to split a desert. Our server Carrie was an absolute pro and the perfect example of Danny Meyer's philosophies - we found ourselves a couple of days later saying 'You know who I miss? Carrie'. \n\nCan't say enough about our experience there that night - it will live up to your wildest expectations if what you expect from a space is world class service, warmth, and fantastic food and drink.

Out of all the places we ate on our trip to NYC, this restaurant stood out at #1.

The bone broth soup was just a perfect blend for a cold, fall day. I followed that up with the Black Bass and again, the flavor balance between everything on the plate was perfect. I’d even say that the fish was the weakest part. Service was pretty good teamwork affair and flowed well. We would definitely eat here again and hopefully try it for dinner next time.

What a wonderful, special dinner. From the greeting at the door, to the new server Asst to the great service by Johair--I will remember this meal for quite some time! Highlights would be the marinated scallops with heirloom beans (a pairing that seemed odd until you taste together the creaminess of both and a light goes off in your head!) and duck breast with skin that was like crispy bacon. Picking a favorite is impossible. They delight with extra surprises--a palate cleanser of green apple sorbet and chickory semifreddo would have been fine as dessert--all the way to the end with a housemate chocolate granola bar 'for tomorrow morning or the cab ride home.' Bravo, Gramercy Tavern!!

First off I would like to say thank you to GT for giving my date and I a lunch to remember. Whitney was an absolute pleasure and her recommendations were amazing. She checked in on us frequently and made sure that we were well taken care of. \n\nThe food was amazing! We started with the beet salad which was heaven. I am not a big beet person, as I mentioned to Whitney, but I could eat that salad everyday. My date ordered the Spinach Fettucchine which he absolutely loved. While I went for the Char, as per Whitney's recommendation. It was phenomenal. \n\nWe weren't drinking as we were both in the middle of antibiotic treatments, but the mint tea was really delicious. We skipped dessert as we were both stuffed but we will definitely be back for a desert only meal. Everything looked amazing.\n\nMost definitely the best lunch date I have ever had. The ambiance was perfect, the food was delicious and the service was hospitable, warm and welcoming. Highly recommend GT to everyone and anyone looking for a great meal.

I love this restaurant! There is the less formal Tavern and in the back the more formal restaurant serving the 'Prix Fixe' tasting menu. The menu changes seasonally. The Tavern's menu is 'a la carte' offering many appetizers, entrees, desserts and selection of farmstead cheese.\n\nIt seems every-time I opt for the beautifully appointed dinning room with the set menu. Given the quality of the food, impeccable service and excellent portions, the 3 course dinner at $98.00 is really not expensive.\n\nOur server immediately presented us with warm fresh baked delicious rolls along with a dish of herb infused butter. Next he brought an 'amuse bouche' which was so good I could have had that as a full appetizer. I started my first course with the Lamb Strozzapreti (a type of pasta), with sun-gold Tomatoes and Fennel Orange Sauce. My partner had the Chilled Melon Soup which included, Cucumbers, Sweet Peppers and Grilled Onions. We both could only say extraordinary!\n\nOur second courses were, for me, the Smoked Cobia, plated beautifully with eggplant, cherries and peppers. My partner's choice was the Duck Breast & Sausage served with cabbage, pumpkin seeds and blueberries. Again, we agreed our entrees were scrumptious.\n\nFor dessert my partner opted for the Raspberry, Coconut Milk Cake with a Cashew Crisp, Marigolds and Apricot Sorbet. Although that sounded wonderful, I can never turn down something chocolate. So, my dessert was a Chocolate, Black Currant Jam, Lavender, Milk Crisp and Hazelnut Brittle. It was awesome. \n\nAs is always the custom here we were presented with a plate of 'petite fours' at the end of our meal and each with a take home bag with a baked muffin for our breakfast the next morning.\n\nAs I said, I love the Gramercy Tavern and can't wait to return.

We had tried to celebrate a milestone birthday there last year but the restaurant was closed for Memorial Day but trust me it was worth the wait. \n\nThe staff is impeccably well-trained and very knowledgeable about all aspects of the food, ingredients, preparation and wine selections without a hint of pretentiousness. We opted for the 7-course tasting menu and were so glad we did. Each course is delicious and beautifully presented. \n\n I can't decide which course was my favorite but I will note the black rice risotto with shrimp, lamb tenderloin and vanilla rice pudding with pomegranate seeds and peach ice cream were amazing. We were celebrating a special anniversary and were treated to a lovely glass of Prosecco to start, an extra cheese course and a special meringue-frosted cake to accompany dessert. \n\nEach course is presented with a brief explanation as to preparation. The entire serving team is involved with the quality of your dining experience and each member is able to answer questions and coordinate requests with your primary server. This is the sign of an extremely well-managed restaurant.\n\nThank you Gramercy Tavern for a wonderful evening!

We had the smoked trout and tartar, then lamb and stripped sea bass and everything was sent back with a clean plate. \nNot to be forgotten in this review are the deserts: much more inventive and original than some other places, absolutely beautiful presentation and simply delicious. \n \nFinally, i need to reiterate how perfect the service was: I've experienced the unfortunate dinner outings to reputable (or perhaps NY 'expensive-flavor-of-the-month-restaurants) where the waiters are too intrusive and so distracting from the dinner experience (adding water when it is not necessary , topping the wine glass when there is quite a bit there still, constantly asking if everything is ok etc...) However during our evening, they were always there when needed, discreet when we were in the middle of a conversation and engaging when , i presume, from experience they felt it was welcomed. \n\nSo, in all, we will be coming back, I strongly recommend you give it a try.

The whole meal was awesome. The wait staff was awesome. They were very attentive without being annoying. The reservations are always for the dining room. They do not take reservations for the tavern part of the restaurant. In the dining room has two dining options a prix fix 3 course and a 5 course tasting menu. I did the tasting menu and would highly recommend it. Every dish was delicious and the portions were right sized so you did not feel stuffed at the end of the meal.

This was the highlight of a weekend with close friends. The lunch vegetable tasting menu with wine pairing was absolutely perfect. My favorite course was the Chestnut Custard with Maitake Mushrooms, Pears and Pecans paired with an exquisite white wine (Cour-Cheverny) from the Loire Valley. My friends rated the Apple Caramel Flan dessert as the ultimate. The restaurant was beautifully decorated with fresh flowers and fruit on the harvest table. Service was impeccable, never rushed. We stayed for three hours. So nice to be able to talk in a normal conversational tone in an elegantly hushed, but not stuffy, dining room. Everything about this experience was perfect.

The service was informed, helpful, but not intrusive. The room is so pleasant and you do not sit on top of one another. Staff worked with us to take the three course and add something special to make it even better, but not as large as the full tasting menu. We enjoyed seeing David as a new manager and Jahir was an excellent server. Can't wait to come back.

The bar is set very high for Gramercy Tavern and having dined there several times over several years one's expectations are always seeking excellence and perfection on all levels. This was perhaps our most disappointing visit. To be fare, it was by no means terrible but it simply didn't meet the usual standards one has become accustomed to. And at the high end price fixe it needs to be spot on. Perhaps it was the less than desirable table we were seated at or the lighting that seemed brighter than usual for a dinner experience. Or perhaps it was the server who although was very knowledgeable regarding the menu was at times doing what seemed to be a club act riddled with wit, sarcasm and comedy that was not appreciated and bothersome. Or maybe it was the lamb entrée which seemed under seasoned and for the first time ever unimpressive leaving us underwhelmed. Yes we'll be back but not anytime soon.

We all 4 had the seven course seasonal tasting with wine pairings. Overall the food was very good except for one course (the duck breast) that was only slightly warm. Not impressed by that. Not for the price and expected level of food at this restaurant. \n\nService was very good but again, time between wine pairing and duck being served was quite long. Maybe that's why the duck was only slightly warm. A hiccup there. \n\nEverything else was very good to excellent. In terms of wine pairings, only the northern Long Island wine was not particularly good. The others were very good to excellent. We all enjoyed trying a Corsican wine - a first for all of us and we are all connoisseurs - something totally different was a treat.

Dining at Gramercy Tavern last night was a real treat and incredible experience. We were advised by our server Stafford, who was relaxed, fun, and generous with his time, to try two of the seasonal menus, so we could explore more of the menu. The food was delicious, intriguing, and easily the best meal I have ever had. We learned a lot about cheese and wine and more from Stafford and found our experience to be educational. At the end of the evening, Luciana Autilio stopped by to check in our experience. She was warm and friendly and made us both feel right at home. I told her that the restaurant and staff gave off the warm feel so often described in setting the table. I hope this restaurant is around for another 20 years. We will be back!

Well deserved reputation for fine dining. Excellent dining experience from the delicious food; the menu is prix fixe; one section is a la carte, one seasonal tasting menu and one vegetarian tasting menu. The server told us it was not obligatory for the entire table to have the tasting menu if only one wanted it which was great...even though as she warned some food would be ready before another's course; this was not an issue for us and so two had a la carte, one had the seasonal tasting and one the vegetarian. Everyone was delighted with their choices. This was the best dining experience both in terms of food and service we've had in a long time. The only thing that would have topped it would be a more cozy dining ambiance..seemed a little spartan and perhaps too well lit. The parting gift of Gramercy Tavern granola bars was novel; they are delicious by the way.

Everything Danny Meyer explained on Setting the Table was reflected at this restaurant. I mentioned about it while dining. All the personnel made an excellent job.

One of the most memorable experiences of my life! This is the first time I've been to a Michelin Star restaurant, so I might just be starstruck and my review might be biased, but anyway...My good friend and I went for my super-belated birthday (was in Aug). We opted for the seasonal tasting menu, and my friend also opted for the wine pairing. The first course was a bonus, a carrot salad not officially on the tasting menu. Delicious. Then we were served bread with goat cheese butter. I never thought bread could taste that good. My favorite by far was the last savory course: seared wagu beef with celery root and a cream sauce. Easily the best steak of my life. Worth every penny. Words honestly fail me to accurate describe the wonderfully complex and sumptuous flavor of every dish!

The last course (duck) was undercooked but at midnight, we just wanted to finish and go home!

It is a rare restaurant that combines excellent food with world class service. Gramercy Tavern is in a small group of restaurants with their overall excellence.\n\nFour of us dined in the main dining room for a special birthday celebration. Two of us opted for the vegetarian tasting menu while two others had the tasting menu that includes meat. We had missed lunch so we're delighted to find that we could add extra appetizers to the tasting menus. We ended up with delightful six course meals. All four of us were served each course in unison by two servers.\n\nOur waiter was very approachable and helpful while highly professional. I consider his level of service to be a lost art in most restaurants. Very impressed.\n\nWe all had a glass of champagne before dinner and shared wine during dinner. I thought the wine list had many very reasonably priced selections. Wine is so often overpriced in fine restaurants. It made me appreciate Gramercy Tavern even more.\n\nWe spread the word to our friends and will definitely make a point of coming back.\n\nDiners should understand that the main dining room that I am writing about is a prix fixe menu. There is another part of the restaurant which is a la carte but does not take reservations.

I was told this was one of the Top 10 tasting menus you'll experience in NYC. Without a doubt I concur! Experience is the operative word. They guided us through an exquisite trip of culinary delight. Each course quickly became our favorite after we were certain the prior course could not be trumped. When the palette cleanser arrived, we debated it because we legitimately did not want to cleanse those flavors from our taste buds. If there was a let down it was the dessert. Not because it wasn't phenomenal as well (and actually rather refreshing), but because we don't have an affinity for sweets. So for us dessert is actually an anti-climatic way to end the meal. that caveat aside, would highly recommend to everyone!

My second time here and my experience was once again superb! It all starts off with the impeccable service - I was lucky to have Mike & Corinne taking care of me this evening as we celebrated my mother's birthday. They were friendly and accommodated our every want and need, including a thorough knowledge of the ever-changing menu.\nFood was delicious, I have enjoyed the 3-course menu both times I've been here as there is a great variety offered among the 3 courses. I loved that they had pumpkin-flavored offerings to celebrate the fall season. Striped sea bass was excellent, as was the pumpkin soup and pumpkin tart dessert. The house-made yeast rolls are to die for! And I love the little samples we received complimentary from the kitchen. A shredded carrot sample and 4 chocolates as well.\nThis is easily my favorite restaurant in New York, and one I will always visit on each trip. Thank you for a wonderful, tasty evening!

We enjoyed the food at Gramercy Tavern but we were disappointed with the service. First, we had a reservation at 5:30. Two of our party had arrived and the other two about 5:20. We asked if we could sit and start with some wine and they would not let us, even though the table wasn't taken. There seemed no point. We advised the team that two of the party had another appointment at 7 so they knew of the time constraint. There seemed no impact on the pace of service. One of the fish entrees was underdone (the fish would not flake - it was still raw and stringy) and had to be sent back. They returned with a complete new piece after the other diners were finished with their entrees. No sense of immediacy to allow all parties to eat together (in the end, that new piece went uneaten - who wants to eat alone). Finally, they took their time before asking about dessert (which we had not realized was included) - by the time they brought it, the two people with the time constraint had already needed to leave. \nWe were overall disappointed and while we would recommend someone to go, would warn them about the service.

The food is amazing, I did the vegetable tasting menu and they helped me substitute the squash lasagna for Eggplant and I am so glad I did. I feel like I would have gone home hungry had I not done that. The portions are all pretty small so beware of that.\n\nThe food was truly american cuisine and I loved the plating. I didnt give this an excellent because I felt like they were very much within the boundaries of 'acceptable' food, there was no experimentation that made me go 'WOW'. The decor also, is very pleasing but also very safe.\n\nThe service was excellent, I would do this again specially if I have someone that likes to stay with the familiar.

My wife and I spent a long weekend in New York taking in fabulous restaurants, entertainment, and generally enjoying the city. We went to several new hot spots that were wonderful. But in the end, Gramercy Tavern is still the best. The food and service were fabulous as always. Our outstanding waiter (Michael) guided us through an unbelievable sequence of taste sensations accompanied by superb wines. We were joined by a few friends (party of four) who were recently married and this was one final step (post-honeymoon) in the celebration. So to wrap it all off, Michael brought us all the deserts of the day so that we could taste everything. It was simply amazing. \n\n I've come to realize what makes Gramercy Tavern stand apart from other top notch restaurants. They deliver the highest quality of food and service, second to none, with a complete absence of pretense or stuffiness. Everything about this place is geared to your comfort. From the abundance of flowers and art work, to the comfortable seating, to the rich smells in the air from the open (wood-fired) cooking area .. it's an unsurpassed experience. I love Daniel, Gotham, Chef's Club, Bouley, etc. And the East Village hot spots are great too. But Gramery Tavern is still the best ....

My wife and I were in New York last weekend to celebrate a milestone anniversary and had been told by friends to try the Gramercy Tavern. The meal and service were exceptional.

Love Gramercy Tavern, always. I'm a die-hard old timer. But, yesterday...the service was very slow , forgetful and sloppy. A first for me. We still really enjoyed revisiting GT but really thought the service was off. The food was so seasonal, contemporary and delightful. The wine selection very up-to-date and well curated. But, our server forgot my guest's wine order twice. The food came and the wine by the glass didn't. The rhythm was off for sure. I just had an amazing meal there in AUG and found the service (as usual) to be well above and beyond. This was a one-off, but I hope it won't happen again! #StillLoveGT

This was such a disappointing experience and honestly a waste of time given how much we were looking forward to dining here. The service overall was ok but generally just failed to impress considering all the raving reviews here. The sommelier frankly just frustrated us. Kept trying to suggest super over priced barolos and barbarescos even though we clearly asked for a suggestions of a light to medium body red. Seriously? The dood itself was all right though we did have to send one dish back as it tasted like they had accidentally dumped a salt container in it. Bottom line for a place to be this hyped either it has to be super fun or the food has to be phenomenal and this was definitely neither.

Been trying on occasion to get here for over a year.

I loved when I got up to use the rest room that every employee stopped and let me pass first. It took a second to realize that was the level of service and attention they were trained for. It was impressive\n\nNo doubt it was one of my more expensive meals but was well worth it, the food was great, we got several off menu tastes, our server and the sommelier were all very helpful, attentive and we never felt rushed.

On our first night in town for a long weekend, we dined at Gramercy Tavern, having walked over from an afternoon at the Whitney. It had been a long time since we had eaten at Gramercy Tavern. We were greeted warmly and seated immediately in the back of the main dining room, which was much more attractive and inviting than we remembered it. (The front bar area was noisy and crowded.) Our waiter quickly greeted us and the service from start to finish was perfect. From the menu (3 courses, $98/person), we selected the pole bean salad with plums and burrata; corn and crab salad; flounder with scallops and shrimp; and smoked copia (like swordfish) with eggplant and peppers. Every dish was great in its own way. For dessert, we sampled the raspberry with coconut milk cake and the blueberry with lemon meringue tart and buttermilk sherbet. From the wine list, we selected a reasonably priced Spanish Pedralonga. It was reasonably quiet so we could hear each other as we dined. We enjoyed it very much and regretted that it had been so long since we had last dined at Gramercy Tavern. We’ll definitely be back on our next visit to New York.

Being a foodie, I had extensively researched restaurants before a recent visit to NYC. We selected four at which to dine, and this one was one of them. This was by far, one of the most memorable meals and evenings of my life. It was a special occasion (my 40th birthday) and I don't think they could have made me feel more special. The quality of the food, the presentation, the flavour combinations, the textures, the colours, the planning that goes into every detail, the knowledge of the staff - everything was superb. Jaws dropped, lips smacked - the vegetarian and the regular seasonal meal, one as good as the other. The server was so thoughtful, considering my dairy sensitivity without me having to remind her (like in most restaurants), so pleasant and so attentive. The whole service team was so well-orchestrated - it was ridiculous (in a good way). From the food delivery, to the plate clearing, to the explanations - amazing! The decor and atmosphere is awesome. Comfortable, wordly, a bit traditional, a bit modern - and definitely beautiful! This was by far the most expensive meal of my life. But hey, you only turn 40 once!

Food and wine were outstanding. The service was best in class however when we made reservations they did not explain that we needed to all have the same choice for the seasonal or the tasting menu as one is three courses and one is six. This threw us off a bit but ultimately we decided to have different options because we are paying. Secondly we were offered a tasting of a wine selection by the sommelier without the knowledge that we would be charged. For three 3-oz tastings it cost $25. This was not made clear up front. Not that we can't afford it but it would have been nice to know since we were presented as if it was complimentary. Lastly the restrooms were not impeccably clean which is an expectation.

Lovely restaurant in Manhattan with beautiful flower arrangements and very attentive service staff. \nThe food is of high quality, however, take the time and go for one of the tasting menus which, at $115, only costs $17 more than the three course meal ($98). The international drinks menu was impressive, although predominantly European. As we live in Vienna it would have been nice to see a few more non-European wines on the list.

My husband and I celebrated our 1st anniversary dinner there. It was great environment and pretty romantic. We ordered 3 courses pre fixed and 6 courses seasonal tasting.

This has been our second trip here within 4 months. On both visits the meal was outstanding. On arriving in the dining room Jahir, our head waiter, from our first visit greeted us warmly. We felt appreciated by the staff. We commented about their superb training and attention to detail. Noting our appreciation of one starter that we passed on was picked up and added for us to taste. Well done Gramercy! At the end of our visit our penchant for one of the treat desserts was also picked up by the staff and we each received one extra taste. The tradition of presenting Gramercy Tavern muffins at the close of the dinner was again appreciated the next morning. In terms of a well run business in customer service...the Gramercy is simply superb.

Such a relaxing space! Although the room furthest back from the bar can feel a bit dated- they try with fake windows!\nThey let us order an xtra app from the bar room which we saw going to our table which wasn't on the dining room\nMenu-a delicious lamb sausage with Parmesan cheese- yum! Delicious apps and then we were so full we couldn't even finish our entrees! Though we ordered our own dessert, they thoughtfully brought a complimentary extra dessert with a candle for my husband's birthday. A nice touch. Unfortunately, the dessert options are limited to things with fruit which is sacrilege for some chocolate lovers like me. They brought me something from the bar menu, but it was drowning in condensed milk. So dessert was the only real weak spot.

What I Ordered: Smoked Arctic Char w/ corn, shishito peppers, and peaches.\nDetails: perfectly smoky - it's the first thing you notice when you take a bite. The corn is creamy, the shishito peppers are really just slivers (think chopped up chives), and the peaches were heavenly.\n\nOne friend ordered the Lobster Salad, which was delicious (or so I heard) BUT ...it. was. TINYYYY. It's what you get at a great restaurant, I suppose? Where as you can order a salad-- even a starter salad-- at many restaurants as your entree, this one didn't cut it. I'd say the full salad covered about a 4'x1.5' area on the plate? So if you're going for it - just beware that you'll need something else to accompany.\n\nMy other friend ordered the Sea Bass, and it was yummy. More food on the plate too ;)\n\nDesserts - we ordered 3 cheeses: the Brabander (goat), Harbison (cow), and Casatica (buffalo). STAY AWAY FROM THE HARBISON! It was bitter and left an aftertaste that was not very pleasing, even to a mid-level cheesy palate. Unless you know what you're going for there, avoid. The others were good though. We also ordered the Chocolate Cake(?) and Goat Cheesecake - the cheesecake amazingly soft and had that chevre taste to it. Phenomenal. The chocolate came with little bubbles of liquid - can't remember what they were, but if anything, they were fun! I'd order both again. \n\nAtmosphere - the Tavern is much more my vibe, but the dining room was nice because it was quiet and private. Seems like two totally separate places even though they aren't even totally separated by walls!

I'm from St. Louis and have long wished to experience Gramercy Tavern. I finally got the chance on my recent trip to NYC. Everything about this restaurant fulfilled my highest expectations. The restaurant is upscale casual, not pretentious, which I loved. Our waiter, Rob, was very friendly and knew everything about the menu, including the wines and beers. He effortlessly answered all of our questions about the menu, and gladly gave us suggestions.\nWe all did the 3-course dinner. I knew the portions would be smaller, and I was prepared to be a little hungry afterwards, but I was wrong. The courses were so rich and full of wonderful flavors that I was quite full at the end of the meal.\nI started with the broccoli soup, which was unlike any soup I've ever had. Wonderfully creamy and warm, it was the favorite at my table. My friends got the grains salad and lobster app and loved it too. For main entree, I got the seafood chowder, my friends got the bass on risotto and chicken & sausage. All delicious, but couldn't beat the apps. \nFor dessert, I ordered the milk & cookies and received several good-size cookies with a cute glass of milk. The blondie and sammie were my favorites. My friends chose the carrot cake and chocolate cake desserts, We were also given, complimentary, a coconut cream cake for my friends birthday, which was a great suprise! We managed to eat most of it too in addition to our other desserts. Delicious!\ntheir 'angel' rolls at the beginning of the meal that were comprised of two different flours, rye and maybe wheat? Regardless, they were warm and delicious with the goat cheese butter. (I even took a few extra home. Couldn't help it!)\nAt the end of our meal, they came out with 2 different types of one-bite chocolates, complimentary. We all managed to try, and were not disappointed. One was a type of truffle with passion fruit inside. Wonderful!\nI can't say enough about my experience here! Will definitely go back next time I'm in NYC!

Based on other reviews, I was expecting the food to be much better than it was. There was certainly nothing memorable about the appetizers or entrees, except the appetizer (Lamb Strozzapreti) was a bit too salty. The entree (Red Snapper) tasted like it had been steamed rather than grilled, so the delicate fish flavor was kind of muted. The dessert (Mango, Pavlova...) looked nice but was overly sweet - I tasted several others and all were excessively sweet. Overall experience was a bit disappointing...

We have been meaning to go for 10 years and regret not doing so sooner but it is 'down town' and that has meant an extra twenty minutes journey each way. When we lived nearby Kerry Heffernan was running Eleven Madison for Danny Myer and we went there regularly appreciating the food, the room and the natural light so there was no need to go past Union Square. On this first foray there we regretted taking so long. The food was first rate in the Dining Room and while all tables were full by the end of lunch it was not noisy and there were no lulls or lapses in service.\nWe ordered al a carte but saw the table behind us work through the vegetable tasting menu with wine pairings with great relish and pleasure at the portions of food and wine and the knowledge wine commentary that was not intrusive.\n\nExcellent lobster salad to begin and a very flavorsome lamb topped pasta to begin. The chicken main course with chantrelles and corn with the chicken presented in three different forms lifted the bar for the inevitable chicken entree. First rate. \n\nGood sea bass, scallop and shrimp dish, although it is 'scallop' singular and a twosome of shrimp which makes it look a little scant for the price. \n \nThe pavlova dessert is really a meringue cookie - not light and still slightly chewy inside which is the standard for a good 'pav.' Still well done.\n\nFirst rate cheese offering and the Van Trapp from Vermont was excellent. The sour cherry jam accompaniment was good.\n\nThe warm bread roll with goat milk butter that was offered while the appetizers were being plated is a must try.\n \nThe Dining room has no natural light a byproduct of the building's initial purpose. If that really matters you can always sit in the Tavern which is fine if a little noisy.\n\nWhatever - go a see a team that delivers excellent food in a casual but stylish manner.

We really wanted to go to here and so took the earliest time available which was 10pm, probably too late after a long travel day and which probably coloured our reaction. Restaurant was beautifully designed, feast for the eyes. First course of watermelon/pepper soup was brilliant as were small wholewheat loaves. Main courses slightly disappointing: bass was a touch overdone, lamb loin on a spicy oddly tasting barley layer at odds with the lamb. Desserts redeemed the meal. Black pepper, corn and strawberry ricotta ice creams were sublimely delicious. Long list of Gruner Veltliner was a welcome surprise. Service outstanding.

My wife and I had dinner here in mid-August 2016. We ate once before in the dining room back in 2002 and twice in the tavern, most recently in April 2015. This time the two of us decided to splurge and try the tasting menu -- the omnivore version.\n\nThe service was off that night. We arrived promptly for our 5:30 pm reservation and found the front waiting area jammed with people. The reception staff appeared flustered and overwhelmed. It took over five minutes before I got the attention of a receptionist. She asked my name and I said 'Mark Lee.' Searching the computer screen, she said she couldn't locate my reservation. I looked at the screen and pointed out my name, listed as 'Lee, Mark.' She laughed and said she thought 'Marklee' was my last name. After being seated in a dining room still only a quarter full, it took an unusually long time before anyone paid us any attention. Our waiter eventually made it over, apologized for the wait, gave us the wine/drinks menu, and apologized again saying it would take a few more minutes to get us menus. Strange. When we got the menu he went away and came back later to take our order without asking whether we had any questions, which we did concerning the tasting menu. At one point a server began explaining what he set before us and our waiter rushed over and literally bumped the server out of the way before taking over the explanation. Weird. Mid-meal I was running out of water so I scanned the room looking for any service personnel. Lots of people were on the floor, but for a long time no one looked over my way. As the room became busier we saw our waiter less and less. We did see him attend personally to four other tables around us, but he let his assistants and servers deal with us.\n\nFood was very good with one major miss. A halibut in kombu foam looked bland -- a blanket of white foam smothering a white piece of fish. Worse, it tasted exactly as bland as it looked. If white-on-white had a taste, this would be it.

Absolutely amazing. We can't fault the whole experience... From being seated at the bar for pre dinner cocktails (with a barman who really knew his stuff!) to a lovely booth in the dining room. The whole place is beautiful and the food and wine sensational. That said, the thing that really sets this place apart from other similar restaurants is the staff and their fantastic good humour and attentiveness. The restaurant is impressive without being stuffy or pretentious - which is very rare. Each and every member of staff made us feel special...and we will definitely stop by for dinner again when we are back in NYC!

When I made the reservation the receptionist asked if we were celebrating an occasion. Although our purpose was to have dinner with out of town friends, I realized that our anniversary was two days hence, which is what I told the receptionist. We were treated with complimentary Proseca for a toast when we sat down, then later with an after dinner toast and with a lovely mini occasion cake with dessert. The service was extraordinary. Our server recited in detail the contents of every dish in which we expressed interest; each course was perfectly timed and water was poured continuously throughout the evening. One of our dining companions was not entirely pleased with her dish and it was whisked away and replaced with another choice. This is a special restaurant for any occasion but especially nice for a celebration. Our reservation was for the dining room but we will return soon to try the less formal bar room which was packed on a week day evening.

Totally overrated. Foremost the service was terrible. Our server had no recommendations, poor manners and was disrespectful / may be had a racist proclivity. Instead of recommendation, would say you think we will serve anything bad? The food was worse than an average restaurant like say cheesecake. We had the tuna, lamb, bean salad, tartare in apps and scallops, chicken, lamb entrees. Only the beef tartare and chicken were bearable while everything else was bland and bogus. Deserts were like having frozen ones from a grocery store. Over all experience was 3/10. Max.

Hands down, this was the best dining experience I ever had in my life so far. Exceptional service and food. It was our wedding anniversary and Gramercy was the only one that allowed us to dine with our 2 year old. We prefer to take our little one to enjoy the dining experience with us and a double thumbs up for Gramercy for accommodating us. People went out of the way to seat us in a good spot where our kid will feel comfortable. The team was regularly checking if we felt comfortable and we were impressed.\nWe also loved the fact that there was a vegetarian tasting menu with wine pairing. The portions were perfect and the food tasted great. The wine pairing was top notch and the staff was very patient in explaining the dishes and wines to us. The filler food in between the courses also kept our palates dancing with joy. Overall, it was an awesome experience and I highly recommend Gramercy. \nGreat job and keep it up !!

We had an appointment later in the day and let our server know when we sat down. He helped make sure we were in and out within 45 minutes so we could get to our appointment on time. We had salads to start, I had the long bean and my friend had the lobster, both were really delicious. For our main course we both had the pasta, unfortunately the pasta dish wasn't very good the sauce was bland an edit had a weird combination of corn and shishito peppers that sounded great but neither of us really thought tasted very good.

Wonderful food, service, and ambiance. I am consistently impressed by the meticulous attention to detail and high level of service one finds in Danny Meyer's restaurants. Meals at Gramercy Tavern are always a treat. \n\nWhen I confirmed my reservation over the phone, the reservationist inquired if we would be celebrating anything, and I responded that we were celebrating our friends' anniversary. As soon as our party was seated, our server brought over a bottle of prosecco, wished our friends a happy anniversary, and poured each of us a complimentary glass. This set a lovely tone for the delicious and elegant meal that followed. I appreciated the personalized touch and that the restaurant remembered it was a special occasion for us. At the end of the meal, we were presented with a tasty, complimentary dessert with a candle and, again, wished a happy anniversary by the person serving it to us. These two acknowledgments at the start of and finish to the meal really added to our festivities.\n\nI am struck by how often upscale restaurants ask if it is a special occasion but do not follow up in any way. I wonder why they bother to ask. It was refreshing and touching to have a restaurant take the information seriously, and add some small touches to make the meal even more special. This was not an inexpensive meal, but the experience was worth every penny.

The staff was wonderful and accommodating, the assistant manager even inquired about the comfort level of the restaurant temperature when he say that I put my jacket on mid-meal. Everything that I ate was beyond delicious, with the exception of dessert. I think I should have opted for the seasonal dessert, because the carrot and apple cakes were not the best.

Once again I learned the lesson about expectations.\nIf you have dined in a spot where everything is 'just so' and it's not then your experience is ruined.\n40 minutes from ordering until first course arrived without explanation.\nDessert took a search for a captain to order; arrived in odd sequence (coffee done before cookies arrived) and one cappuccino was delivered as coffee and no milk for four coffee's delivered. Eventually had to search for someone to just take my credit card and give me a bill because we had been there for two hours and the room was emptying.\nLesson? \nSpeak up and ask for attention even at the best spots.

I certainly describe myself as a foodie. And because I can get around a kitchen pretty well, we seldom go out to eat at nicer restaurants. It seems that we spend a lot of money and leave saying, 'we could have made this better at home.'\n\nThis was not the case at Gramercy Tavern. It was the best meal that I ever had in my life and the most I have ever paid for a single meal. But I don't regret spending one penny. They get it right. The ambiance, the food, the impeccable service...all carefully choreographed and executed to perfection. The six course tasting menu ended up closer to nine courses with palate cleansers and 'compliments of the house.' \n\nThe service was to perfection. Never rushed. Always relaxed but attentive. Ideal in every way.\n\nI hesitate to ever go out to eat again because no one will be able to measure up.

My husband & I always make a point of going to Gramercy Tavern every time we are in NYC. It is always the most amazing meal experience; it never disappoints us. This was the first time we had gone for lunch. We dined with two other friends, and we decided we would try the tasting menu, along with a wine pairing. One friend chose the vegetarian tasting menu, while the rest of use chose the regular fall tasting menu. We had to convince my husband to participate (If you choose the tasting menu, everyone must do it. Its a timing thing for things to be brought out from the kitchen at the same time) He has less adventurous tastes and love Gramercy for some of their simple, yet elegant and delicious meals. Some of the items listed on the tasting menu were not things he was comfortable with but we bullied him into it, and it was a great success. We started out with a lobster salad, moved onto a fish (I can't remember what it was anymore!), duck, then lamb. Everything was heaven the moment you put it in your mouth. I also coveted all the fabulous looking vegetable dishes my friend had presented to her. Additionally everything was presented beautifully on the plate. Our waiter, Steven, was wonderful, explained in detail about the wines we had with each course, and why they were chosen to be paired up with the various dishes. Our other friend mentioned that he was more of a beer guy than a wine guy, so Steven quickly mentioned that he could do a beer flight with his meal. Our friend was thrilled, and Steven knew just as much about the beer as the wine. Our last course was a dessert course and we lamented that we would all get the same dessert, and just like that Steven instead brought us a mini dessert tasting of several different desserts. It was the best three hour lunch I've ever had. I can't wait to go back there again.

A true New York gem. My wife and I were visiting Manhattan in July and were told this place was a must. We frequent dinning establishments of this caliber throughout the country and Gramercy Tavern left nothing to be desired. First off you need to know what you're getting into. A Michilin Star restaurant with a seasonal tasting menu (wih wine paring) will cost you a couple hundred bucks a person, so be prepared. \n\nThe atmosphere was great. Lively, fun and elegant but not too noisy. The service was top notch and the staff made us feel at home. The food was exactly what you would expect from a such a place, unique, flavorful and full of surprises. All we had to do was sit back and enjoy the show. I would totally recommend this place and plan to go back next time we're in New York. \n\nDress to impress, make a reservation and come early so you can enjoy their vibrant bar scene.

Our server was AMAZING....as in, she knew every single thing about every detail of our meals. We did the tastings menus with wine pairings. (I chose the vegetarian option and it was fabulous.)

Our appetizers (pork bolognese and lobster salad) were absolutely delicious and we wished they were our main dish to be transparent. We had the sea bass with kombu and the flounder from the pre-fix menu but we were not over the moon about it. Out of the two, the flounder tasted better but both were missing that special twist or unique flavor and to be honest, were kind of bland. Maybe we are use to the current food trend of bold flavors. Desserts: we had panna cotta and the chocolate dessert. Panna cotta was not great and very soupy, the consomme made the panna cotta lose it's natural thickness texture. The chocolate dessert was excellent and very well presented, gold star on that. The cocktails were solid and excellent as well. Throughout the meal, they surprised us with special treats and a muffin to take home as well, which was extremely thoughtful. The bread was really good but the chive rolls were super salty, could cut back on the salt on that one. The sourdough bread was extremely delicious and chewy though.

The three of had the tasting menu. While it was prepared with the finest touches the flavors didn't resonate. It was six courses and I can say nothing was memorable to the taste buds. The marinated scallops with watermelon didn't bring out the taste of the sea. There was a lobster with seasonal corn infused with cilanto that was interesting, but not great. A pasta with shell beans with too a small amount of black truffle to create the aroma needed for the dish was fine. The halibut with seasonal tomatoes was just okay; the fish was perfect but the tomatoes weren't the flavorful. Two preparations of pork (shoulder and tenderloin) were fine but not great. The chocolate cake was rich and the ice cream was lacking depth.\n\nWhile the restaurant was fine there are many one star Michelin restaurants in NYC that I would prefer to go to. I wished I could have ordered from the three course menu, but there was nothing that caught my eye.

Given that we booked our reservation for the dining room almost a month out, we had high expectations going in. Gramercy Tavern did not disappoint.\n\nFirst off, the service was impeccable and our meals were well-timed. For food we each chose from the 3 course menu. We started with the beef tartare and pork bolognese, then smoked char and the chicken/sausage, finishing with the cherry goat cheesecake and chocolate... plus they threw in a free strawberry old fashioned doughnut since the table next to us had a small child, even though we weren't bothered at all!\n\nEach of the dishes were almost too beautiful to eat, and the flavors were incredible. I would recommend any of them, however we both felt we should have done the tasting menu after seeing all the scrumptious dishes brought to another table. The desserts were most memorable, I wish we could have had them all!

Had late lunch in dining room. Parking two blocks from Gramercy Park where it's two hour meter. Chose two wines by the glass, they gave us the burgundy glasses which do make a difference.. Moric Blaufrankisch which is a wonderful Austrian somewhat heavier red that went well with the lamb three ways.. and a Ruche from Piemonte Italy which was floral scented and lovely red that matched the ancient grain pappardelle with nice mushroom sauce. The shrimp and pancetta salad starters were really nice too. Server even wrote down the wines for me!

A great restaurant for many years ; this time food was outstanding as usual, but service was a bit disappointing. The waiter was not very friendly and as the night went on we couldn't find the waiter, we had to try to wave someone down for help. He seemed to be taking care of too many tables. We had the tasting menu and the speed of service really slowed down at the end. After our last savory course we waited probably 25 minutes for our first dessert. Overall I hope Gramercy Tavern going to a no tipping policy doesn't hurt service even more.

Gramercy Tavern was everything they said it would be. After reading Danny Meyer's book, I had to experience one of his restaurants. We arrived on a stormy weekday night early. We were seated right away. We did a 3 course prix fix. The cocktails were amazing, the food a feast for the eyes and for the mouth, and the service like no other. The waiter had humor, knowledge, and pride in his work. The customer service manager stopped by and chatted as we had many questions ( a business experience as well as a dining experience). I have told many people about this restaurant, and can't wait to go to another of his dining ventures. Go there!

Great special occasion to try. Food was impeccably prepared with lots of finesse but a few dishes lacked a little flavor for me. I was most disappointed I. The pork belly, which should always be the star of the meal. Also, did the wine pairing but instead of sommelier the waiter served all the wines. He didn't seem that educated on the wines and didn't talk at all how they should complement each of the courses. Very disappointed to do a wine pairing and not hear about the intersection of the wine and the food. Overall great experience but a tad over-rated for me. I've had better and more flavorful food in NYC but the service and teamwork here is amazing to experience.

My wife and I split a tasting menu and an additional 3 courses (two starters and a main) - we like to try lots of different dishes wherever we go. We also had 3 wine tastings (3 oz pours) each to pair with the food. Every dish was visually beautiful and tasted fantastic. In addition, the service was impeccable; attentive, but not overbearing, and highly professional. Lastly we shared a great dessert and an awesome Ximenez. Couldn't have been a better lunch, and the price was extremely reasonable for the quantity, quality and experience of the food and wine. One of my favorite Manhattan restaurants.
