Diner Reviews
  • "Love this place - always great. Ambiance is terrific and so is the food. Owner and staff top notch every time."

  • "For several years now Glass House Tavern was my 'go to' restaurant when I was entertaining client/guests before theatre but they really dropped the ball this time. While the bar was packed, the dining area was only about a third filled and yet the servers were still no where to be found. Even after complaining to the manager about not being able to send back two undercooked meals, I still had to get up and pour water for my guests. Dinner plates stayed on the table until we paid the check and left. Perhaps a change in management or ownership but this place has definitely lost its sparkle."

  • "Enjoyed a very nice dinner with my girlfriend. We originally were going to eat there before seeing wicked on Saturday but decided to book a reservation for the next night. It was a pleasurable experience and the food was on par along with the ambience. Our server was friendly and gave us great service!"

  • "Went to the Glass House Tavern because it sounded good and was within walking distance to our theater before seeing Motown the Musical. We really enjoyed the food. We could hear each other well for a good conversation. Our waiter was attentive and asked what time our show was so that he ordered our desserts when we ordered our entrees. Everything was delicious . I am looking forward to going back."

  • "I've been here for drinks before and always happy. We went to restaurant week and had a less than stellar experience. the appetizers were great (sweet pea risotto) but the entrees were terrible. both my brother and I had the filet and it honestly tasted like old meat. Not spoiled, but not a great cut of meat. was really surprised. the waiter forgot my brother's extra side of veggies, and my brother told him not to worry about it. the desserts were ok-chocolate cake was good but nothing you couldn't find anywhere else. for the price, i would have much rather gone somewhere else."

  • "Food was very good. Quick and easy place for pre theater dinner. Atmosphere was good and restaurant was nice. Not a memorable experience or menu."

  • "What a nice restaurant in the heart of Times Square. Good food, good service, reasonable prices. I work in the area and this kind of place is hard to find. I'm going to keep it on my list of restaurants to go to when I want a nice sit-down lunch that's not rushed or overpriced."

  • "Restaurant has very good midtown location, especially if you are seeing a Broadway show. Nice ambiance and lovely atmosphere. I was there on a Monday, so it was especially quiet. Not rushed at all and stayed to chat even after the meal was finished. A little disappointed with the size of the appetizer and desert. I ordered from the $25 lunch week menu. My mushroom ravioli was tasty, but there were only 2 small pieces. Main course of a poached shrimp salad was very good, lots of large fresh shrimp and a very tasty dressing. My desert, pineapple bread pudding, was the size of a postage stamp. Whatever there was was good, but the chef certainly could have added another spoonfull or two. I think I would go back if I was in midtown."

  • "We found the restaurant listed for NYC Restaurant Week and chose it for its close location to our hotel, and its promising menu. We were surprised a wine/drink list was never provided; I chose a meal only to find out I was given the wrong menu, and had to choose again. Our food was very good, the atmosphere nice, and the restaurant was very clean. Our window seats overlooked the street, so we had a nice opportunity to people watch."

  • "We celebrated a birthday with brunch here. The menu has a little of everything, so it was perfect, even for our two-year-old. Our server was terrific. While he didn't know the menu perfectly, he had a great attitude and sought information from the kitchen when he did not know the answers to our questions. He was very attentive as well. The space is also great. The décor is rich and comfortable, and we did not feel crowded or cramped at all."

  • "We visited during restaurant week, which was an unexpected bonus. Delicious three-course meals for $38. Service was very gracious, but a bit on the slow side during this visit. Will definitely visit again."

  • "I was looking for a theater district place to dine post theater and this restaurant was recommended to me. Our soup and salad were both tasty and delicious and our main meals were presented beautifully. My son ordered the filet minon which was definitely a great choice. I ordered the free range chicken, which I found somewhat dry. Our accompanied potatoes were both great. We split a warm chocolate cake with berries. A mite on the small side and a little stingy with the berries, but a decadent dessert. I would most definetly return to The Glass House Tavern as well as I highly recommend it.....it is a new theater district favorite restaurant!"

  • "Snuggled in the middle of the theater district this restaurant out performs. The menu is diverse without being overly complicated. The cuisine is well presented and the taste is devine. The wait staff was very attentive and in tune with the quick turn around for you to make that next show but they are not pushy. Two thumbs up on this performance."

  • "My boyfriend and I went to Glass House Tavern for restaurant week. We had a 5:30 reservation and were seated right away. Our waiter was friendly and personable and made us feel right at home. We both started out with the crab and goat cheese stuffed shrimp which was delicious. Our filet mignon entrees were my favorite part of the meal. For dessert I had a warm chocolate cake which was rather disappointing. I thought the cake was dry and was hoping for warm chocolate oozing out of the middle. My boyfriend had the pineapple bread pudding and he loved it. Overall, I was pleased with my choice for restaurant week and extremely happy with the service we received."

  • "I enjoyed my Dinner at the Glass House Tavern. The price fixe menu was unique and a good value. The portions were very accommodating and I was very satisfied. The filet mignon was cooked perfect, the risotta had a hint of mint to it that was unique and delicious. The pasta and eggplant dish had a sweet and spicy taste that was also very enjoyable. I would recommend this restaurant to my friends."

  • "Visited the Glass House after the theater. The restaurant area was quiet but we enjoyed the private feel for our dinner. Food was enjoyable and we had a very nice wait person. The bar area was very crowded when we left so I would return to visit the bar for a late night drink. Very pleasant experience."

  • "Sunday brunch. My friend ordered a peach bellini. Usually that's champagne with peach nectar. The waiter brought us a glass of champagne with peach schnapps. What?!? Sent it back. The waiter acted like we were hassling him. Then he read off the specials. I asked if I could get an omelette with spinach and tomatoes. It wasn't on the menu but, hey, most kitchens have spinach and tomatoes. He literally yelled "NO!" at me. My friends and I were taken aback. His style was totally gruff, unfriendly, and way below what you'd expect at a restaurant like this in a neighborhood like this. The whole experience was unpleasant and bizarre. Will not go back."

We were pleasantly surprised to find this place in the heart of Timesqure with nice ambiance. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for decent food/decor without paying top $."
