Diner Reviews
  • "This is our favorite restaurant in the city. We always celebrate happy events there."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "We are not hicks. We are from Boston and enjoy all types of food and fine dining. We were looking for something special on our 30th wedding anniversary and we found it. They asked in advance if it was an occasion - as a result we were treated to Proseco before dinner and a wonderful extra dessert (layered coconut cake with Happy 30th written on the plate. We chose the tasting menu. Each of the 6 courses was wonderful. Lobster salad, duck breast, haddock, squid ink spaghetti. Portions were appropriately modest given the number of them. Just might go back there before our 50th Anniversary."

  • "This is an excellent restaurant in food quality, service and ambience. We enjoyed the prix-fixe menu with a bottle if good Italian wine. The price was close to $200 per person (including tax and tip). This was definitely too high!"

  • "What a perfect place to celebrate a wedding anniversary! That's what my wife and I did. But Gramercy Tavern would be perfect for any occasion. The service was outstanding -- friendly and knowledgeable -- and the food was even better. We selected the tasting menu, which was something to remember. I'm still talking about the carrot juice with citrus froth and my wife is still talking about the duck. Oh, our server helped us pick the perfect bottle of wine ... really amazing!!! Give Gramercy Tavern a visit; I'm sure you'll have an evening to remember!!!"

  • "My family had prix fix dinner at Gramercy Tavern. The food & service were great! Each course was as good or better than the last. From the complimentary starter to the complimentary finish everything was perfect (well maybe the desert was weird - apricot something). But it did not matter, all before it was too good."

  • "waited a little bit of a while for meals not as good as i thought it would be and very small portions for the price had better"

  • "Had a reservation but had to wait to be seated and didn't get our favorite table, which we had requested a month in advance. Fourth visit but left us with bad taste in our mouths. Expensive restaurant and you expect great service and attention to detail."

  • "Great service and beautiful presentation on the food. The snapper was excellent! Attentive staff and very nice atmosphere for a special dinner. We chose the 3 course menu and it was perfect. Would definitely recommend!"

  • "I took my family of six to Gramercy Tavern for lunch while in NYC this past month. I had a reservation. Because my family had split up for the morning activities, we didn't all arrive ON TIME for our reservation. The hostesses where wonderful. They sat us without the complete party. We had a glass of wine while waiting. The food was incredible! Everything we ordered was outstanding. This was our favorite restaurant of our trip."

  • "We erred; thought it was Rest. week but the service and food were more than a mere mistake; just poor.l Stick to hamburgers Mr. Meyer"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Entres were superb....chilled corn soup and pasta based dish. That's where it ends. Main course..fish bland with very odd accompaniments, i.e. tomato! Not asked cooking preference and pork unedible as so rare and chewy. Pork needs a sweet accompaniment and again, they didn't mesh well.. It is as if the chef is trying too hard and gathering ill fitting collection to 'make the dish' ultra a la cart! Dessert again...over kill. Why not keep it simple. Was like a pub creation. Service was sadly a little slow.. Our mistake as should have chosen the bistro. We didn't complain then.... For a $300 evening for 2.... We just laughed our way home. Sorry so harsh but really and truly....this restaurant was highly recommended and it made me very sad."

  • "I head to New York several times a year, leaving behind the food heaven of San Francisco. I always eat at Grammercy and have always had a great meal. My last visit was memorable for the quinoa muffins offered to me when my excellent server learned of my wheat allergy; rather than being the usual inadequate substitute they were actually tastier than their bread."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The place is the greatest New York has to offer, great service, laid back, excellent food, great choice of wines to choose from. You will be lucky if you have Steve looking after you. He made our dinner very special."

  • "This is my third time eating at Gramercy Tavern. The food, obviously, is delicious. The flavor combinations are exciting, and the tasting menu does not leaving you feeling hungry as it does at some other places. I will say though that for me, the thing that makes Gramercy Tavern so special is that the very, very good food is elevated by the incredible service. The service is attentive without ever being suffocating, and watching the servers is like watching well-trained dancers. In addition, they really know how to go slightly out of their way to make your meal over-the-top special."

  • "We celebrated our Anniversary here and it was...AMAZING. They started us off with a little bit of sparkling wine just to congratulate us and then the beautiful food and flawless service that they're known for helped us have a perfect anniversary dinner. We ordered the seasonal prix fixe as usual. We've come to Gramercy for every season just to taste all the different menus and this summer menu was really fresh and delicious. They noted that I'm allergic to chocolate and alcohol and really worked around my food allergies. At the end of our meal, we were given a beautiful little coconut and meringue cake for our anniversary. My boyfriend loved it and kept saying how much it reminded him of a mexican wedding cake and home. love."

  • "We went for a Friday late lunch and had the tasting. The lobster, with the egg salad, and pickled haricot verts is an incredible dish. The flower display with veggies incorporated sets a beautiful ambiance. One of the best dining experiences in NYC, even at the bar."

  • "I am never dissappointed by Gramercy Tavern! It is amazing how the combinations of food and flavor can be married in such a way that a whole new taste experience can occur. Dining here enables you to wake up your palette and really embrace the fresh flavors of the season. Definitely a foodie spot. Anytime I'm in the city I have to eat here!!"

  • "Having gotten married that afternoon we chose Gramercy Tavern for dinner as we had been there on a number of previous occasions and knew it would be a great place to celebrate. We had the seasonal tasting menu and all of our requests for exchanges were no problem as substitutions were professionally and courteously met with ease. The service for the tasting menu is comparable to a well rehearsed dance performance… the timing of the presentation of the dishes is precise as each of the wait staff complete their task as unobtrusively as possible. A remarkable and well-trained staff in each and every way imaginable."

  • "This is a restaurant that knows how to make the customers feel like old friends. The service was very friendly, extremely professional and efficient. We had a show to attend and they made sure we were able to enjoy our 3 course meal but make our show (and they seemed to genuinely care!) we were even given a muffin for after the show! The food was even more amazing. The recommended trout appetizer and lamb loins were exceptional. The cookie tray was delicious and plentiful. The kale salad was good (although I had better) and the pork loin was cooked to perfection. A truly great meal recommended by a New Yorker who said it was the place he always takes guests. Beautiful room and very elegant setting. A real treat!"

  • "All the food we had was very good. Great job kitchen. Our server was ok, but nobody seemed to care we were there. There was a follow up server( a small young girl) who was extremely unfriendly and when we asked for a cocktail in a specific glass she copped and attitude like we were hillbillies. We spent way too much $ to be treated that way. Better we eat at Starbucks, at least they say hello and thank you. LE Bernardin,Peasent,Del Posto...much ,much better for the$."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Every aspect of our 3.5-hour evening was thoroughly enjoyable. The special touches from our server and the kitchen made us feel regal. We particularly loved selecting our own 3-ounce wine pairings for our seasonal tasting menus. The table next to us, who had apparently stopped at the cocktail page of the drink menu, was envious. We will certainly return!"

  • "I'd heard of this world-renowned institution for decades, I've never before been in the neighborhood at meal time. When the opportunity arose, I made a reservation for the dining room (the grill does not accept them). Everything was excellent. I've never had better service - anywhere. This is one of the most professionally-staffed establishments which I've ever visited. I was a bit put off when a confirmation call came to me a couple of days before the reservation; "proper attire is business casual," I was told. Most New Yorkers think that the rest of the planet is populated with hayseeds and hillbillies, but "business casual," itself, is an oxymoron. I nearly cancelled on the spot, but I'm glad I didn't. Fabulous service; excellent food."

  • "Gramercy Tavern never fails to live up to my high expectations. From the minute you're greeted by the hostess to the yummy muffin at the end of the meal, everything is delicious and service is warm, welcoming and seamless; every year the food and service remains at the highest standards. After all these years, Gramercy remains a very special restaurant."

  • "Gramercy Tavern continues to offer one of the best lunch settings and menus in the city. Friendly, attentive service with a farm to table menu. Memorable flower arrangements. Dessert menu is a bit too deconstructionist for my taste. Prefer traditional dessert sizes with a bit of a twist. Always make a stop here when visiting NYC."
