Diner Reviews
  • "We had a 5 pm reservation and we were the only people dining for at least 40 minutes. Our waitress was incredibly annoying. I guess she was bored. She wanted us to order while the bartender made our drinks. I said we'd wait until we got them. She stood there so I asked her to give us a minute. This went on through the whole meal. No bread was served. She tried to take my wine glass before it was empty. Asked us if we wanted dessert while taking our dinner plates. I had a watermelon and tomato salad and salmon, my friend had lobster bisque and risotto. We shared a plate of cookies. The food is so-so. There are much better places in the area. Our Manhattans were $16 each! Sorry I picked this restaurant."

  • "Loved this charming restaurant--a little off the Theater District path, but worth the extra blocks!"

  • "This is our third visit and as in previous visits everything was very good. The food, service and ambience is very nice."

  • "The restuarant is just a block off Times Square but leaves all the glitz and lights behind. I went with a group from work for lunch. Service was attentive, bar setting was casual and food was generally good. We had burgers, both beef and veggie, crab cakes and a filet pasta that looked great. Skip the 'Maryland' style crab cake. Too much mayonnaise too little crab!"

  • "The food was good, and service was ok. We were seated quickly, but it took a while for someone to come to the table and all night."

  • "The food was very good, the service terrific and the cost was reasonable. This is a comfortable, attractive tavern. We were there on a Sunday afternoon when it was not very crowded and since it is sort of a sports bar (lots of televisions showing various sporting events) it might be a bit loud when it is filled with fans, but when we were there it was perfect. The location is great for 42nd Street theaters and you can find good discount coupons for parking on the block. We really enjoyed the risotto special (with smashed peas) and the farfalle with sirloin tips. All in all a very good choice!"

  • "I went with a group of 6 for brunch on Sunday. Although Yelp review wasn't as high as some other restaurant in the neighborhood, we selected it as we could get the last minute reservation for party of 6 and it was located right near metro station. The food was above my expectation. The blueberry french toast was so delicious. I would recommend this place to others"

  • "I have eaten here twice....brunch and lunch. For brunch all 12 people at the table had excellent meals, perfectly prepared and delicious! For lunch all 4 people had the exact same wonderful experience. The service on both visits was outstanding. I recommend the Croton Madame for brunch and the Octoous Ceviche for lunch."

  • "Excellent midtown spot for a mid-day business lunch. The food's quite good. The only drawbacks are that sound levels are a little energetic and table space can be a little cramped, but those are minor in the overall picture. "

  • "It's hard to fault a restaurant for having a blow-out happy hour. Its easier to fault us for choosing Croton Reservoir for a pre-theater dinner at 6:30 on a Friday night. The first table offered was near the entrance, opposite the main bar, which was a-roar at the time. So we asked for something quieter. We got a recessed table near the rear, but right near the top of stairs that led down to another bar whose noise level made the upstairs see like a service at a Friends Meeting House (they are very quiet). The food was quite good and promptly delivered; our delightful waitress made us forget the din with her attentiveness and infectious good humor. I'd go back anytime, but after 8:00pm."

  • "I love meeting my friends here for drinks and food after work or before theater. I've been there many, many times over the years, and they never disappoint. The food is excellent and the service friendly and efficient. The bar can be a bit noisy, but it just adds to the festive atmosphere. Have a good time!"

  • "Great place for quick meal away from the theater crush but close enough to walk to the show."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Croton usually comes to mind for after work drinks and a quick dinner. Conveniently located to our midtown work and theater district. I think friends are tired of my suggesting Croton but so far we have not been disappointed with the food and service."

  • "Great food but the noise level is horrid. Husband and I had to text message each other to talk at dinner. "
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "While it can be a bit loud early in the evening, Croton Reservoir Tavern is a favorite meeting place for friends or business. The bar is long and inviting. You can also sit at the nearby tables and enjoy the great food. A wide range of choices, we've often just had drinks and different appetizers. The whiskey list is fantastic -- I go there to try new things. Have often sat for hours enjoying drinks, eating little by little, and having wide ranging conversations."

  • "We went Friday during happy hour, the bar scene was busy. The dining room wasn't full, we sat large round booth near the door. It blocked off most of window, but my view was very off putting, smokers stood right in front of the window.The kale salad was delicious, as was the huge crab cake. My son had the chicken pot pie, but said it was more like stew, very thin sauce. He liked the puff pastry on top. Husband and I shared the filet mignon pasta, the sauce was supposed to contain horseradish, think they forgot the horseradish. It tasted fine, but when you are expecting a zing from the horseradish it was a little bit disappointing. It was a good place to go for a bite to eat, but ask to sit away from the window."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Place has pretty decent food, and if you go with a group downstairs is the best place to be as it was not loud at all. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "Went there with family for pre theatre. 10 out of 12 dishes were outstanding, didn't care for the lobster bisque so much. Someone needs to tell them to TURN THE MUSIC DOWN! I realize it was Happy Hour but I think the owner should remind the bartender that it is a Tavern not a Nightclub, that is what the basement is for. My third visit there, will still do lunch."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Very loud and noisy bar scene with no place to eat and enjoy some food. The menu is vey limited. Service was decent. Not a place to relax at all."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "My girlfriends and I were pleasantly surprised when we ate here for lunch pre-theater. We truly enjoyed our food. I had the kale salad with seared tuna on top. It was delicious, healthy and very satisfying. We were short on time as our train was delayed, and they were able to get us out in plenty of time, even with ordering two courses. The only downside was the noise level."

  • "Been here twice and both times were not disappointed. Food is great. Service is Great and we were going to a show so there was not problem with getting in and out in time to get to the show early. Love this place will be sure to go again and again"

  • "Not quite a bar, a step up from a coffee shop, this place serves a good function in a neighborhood where it can be tough to avoid chain restaurants or take-out. Their kale salad is quite delicious, and you can feel self-righteous about its being healthy. Or you can just get a burger and be done with it! Prices are not cheap, but you're paying for location."
