Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I were celebrating our Anniversary. From the moment I was greeted by the door man, till we walked out the door, I felt everyone there, cared about our dining experience The service was the best. The menu is simple, the choices are not eclectic, but the preparation was perfect. The wine list was more up scale than I am used to, but I was able to find something in my price range that was perfect. Even the gentleman in the men's room was a pleasure, you didn't feel he was just there for tips. At the end of dinner, my server made arrangements for us to take a tour of the wine cellar, which I highly recommend. There is a lot of history here, it's not like just just going to dinner, it's really an event."

  • "We asked if we could take a sneak peak of the wine cellar downstairs and we were giving an amazing tour and learned so much history about the restaurant and building itself. It was truly an experience."

  • "My recommendation is to come here for a bit of nostalgia. The 21 club offers a classic upscale dining experience. The dining room is a dark and smoky atmosphere. The ceiling in the dining room is lined with toy trucks, cars, and space ships. Did not really care for this as this seemed as a distraction from the experience. If you go make sure that you wear a jacket or you will be provided one. That little note of traditionalism somewhat lost in today's casual work and personal attire is warranted. The pre-fix pre theater menu is a well balanced 3 course meal that provides adequate sustenance without feeling unfulfilled."

  • "21 Club was on the short list of "must visit" restaurants in NYC and it does not disappoint. We were treated to great service, delicious food, and cozy ambience. We visited before going to see a play and highly recommend the pre-theater grouping which offered an appetizer, entree, and dessert. We will definitely be returning in the future."

  • "21 Club offers diners a memorable experience. The service and attention to detail is impeccable. Your are welcomed with enthusiasm and genuine appreciation. You will find dinner entrees delectable, perfectly proportioned and beautifully presented. Charming memorabilia in the Bar Room, combined with vintage leather, linen and fine china, creates a delightful balance of whimsy and elegance. You will leave the 21 Club looking forward to your next visit there."

  • "The 21 Club, was all I expected to be; from the doorman to the Maitre'D, captain, waiter, bus-person, etc., it was a great dinner experience. I love the location, too. The food was delicious. No rushing, relaxing, in other words, more than just dinner, a culinary experience at the 21 Club. I know we will return. Thanks."

  • "My college roommate and I always go to New York for restaurant week. Our two choices were The Monkey Bar and 21. We decided that everyone should try 21. So we went to the Monkey Bar for drinks amazing-atmosphere. At 21 We were jammed next to the waiter station. The good news is that despite the fact that my roommate and I are in our late 50's we were by far the youngest people in the room by ten years. When they seated an older version of the golden girls next to us I realized this place was past it's prime. I had the braised lamb shank that tasted like mutton,while my friend had the roast chicken. She described it as nursing home food. What a disappointment! We should have stayed at the Monkey Bar!"

  • "Upon entering the 21 Club, I felt as if I had walked into a very elegant club, which is exactly what I had expected/hoped for. I did see one male customer who did not have a jacket on (nor did it appear to be on the back of his chair), so I wonder if they are inconsistent in enforcing their jackets required for men policy. When we were seated, we were taken into the back area of the restaurant, which was not at all what I had expected. The fancy club atmosphere gave way to a noisy room with lots of toy trucks and football helmets hanging from the ceiling. I may not have done my homework properly, but I was expecting the restaurant area to be just as elegant and romantic as the bar/lounge area. Food was excellent, as was service."

  • "Enjoyed the NYC Restaurant Week dinner prix fixe. A great value and a chance to sample something other than the world famous 21 burger. Looking at the standard menu, with judicious ordering, regular dining is NOT out of the question! Will definitely come back!"

  • "We went to 21 Club during restaurant week and it did not disappoint. The restaurant is a very classy, old style institution with top notch food and service. Everything we ordered was delicious. We had a carpaccio and grilled calamari for starters and both were superb. The lamb for main coarse was fall of the bone tender. For desert we had a peach tart and ice cream sundae. I did not care for the tart but my husband thoroughly enjoyed it. The ice cream sunday was outstanding. This place is a winner and we would love to come back. Bar service was also great. We ordered two specialty drinks and they were excellent."

  • "My experience at 21 Club for lunch was great! The service was superior in every way. Food was delicious and served promptly. The watermelon and heirloom tomato salad was perhaps the most interesting and delicious salad I've ever eaten. Salmon was perfect."

  • "we dined here last year for a 21st birthday gift and it was great. this time we took our 21 year old twin nieces and it was nowhere near as good. one chair was broken. waited over 30minutes just to get a menu - and the restaurant was not busy. I booked the table on line and filled in the special occasion section advising twin nieces 21st birthday so they could prepare a cake or similar as they do for birthdays. we got nothing! and had to tell two waiters it was a special occasion and finally received 2 hats for the girls. menu special of cod was too salty to eat. sad to see the level of service has gone down so much in one year - and sad to say we won't go back again"

  • "Have wanted to have dinner at 21 since I first heard of the place years ago. Finally, a birthday gift gave me the opportunity. Not at all disappointed. Fabulous and memorable experience. Particular thanks to Vivianna (server) and Nic (sommelier), who went far above and beyond."

  • "We had a wonderful pre theatre dinner at the 21 Club. We sat in the Bar Room at reputably Mick Jagger's or Ivan Boesky's table. The maitre d related to us some of the storied history of the 21 club's speakeasy days. I enjoyed the prix fixe menu which included Murray's roast chicken which was excellent and my wife had the signature Chicken Hash with bechamel and gruyere which also was excellent. Next time I want to try the 21 burger which legend has was so liked by Howard Hughes that he served it on his airline. If you go to 21, don't forget to wear a jacket for men."

  • "The requirement for a jacket irks some, but the exceptional food and attentive service make it worthwhile. Pricey, but worth it. Almond sundae to die for, lamb shank tender, falling off the bone and flavorful."

  • "we know something on the menu is not for restaurant week. this is the first thing waiter tell me while we are sitting. But we also wants to try something different. When we are asking waiter about a food name on the menu. He is not going to talk about the food or taste but told us that this food is not for restaurant week menu and waiting for our response. When we said we know then he told us this is fish and it taste good without detail."

  • "Rare to find with all the foodie hype a place with history to have a classic meal. Classic cuisine does not mean old cuisine. Club 21 prepares innovative dishes but understands classical techniques of preparing its food. We were fortunate to have Nick as our waiter. An elegant gentleman who knew the menu, helped advise each of us - a diverse party of three. Their wine list is a challenge just to choose from it's impressive directory. Not to worry though, their sommalier is there to help both with your wine tastes and price. Impressed with the kind recommendations for wine from this gentleman who never made us feel ignorant about how little we actually know about wine. Club 21 worth visiting during restaurant week and any time."
