  • Our experience at Gramercy
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/4/2008
    Our experience at Gramercy Tavern was absolutely delightful. We had flown in from CA to NYC for a graduation and were looking for some NYC great old restaurants. The food was truly "to die for" and our waiter, David, was helpful, informative and made wonderful suggestions. (Including some tips on the restaurant in Brooklyn that we were going to the following night-which was also very good but not as good!!!) We travel a fair amount in the US and Canada and have been fortunate to have eaten in some outstanding restaurants and I have to say we would rate GT among one of the finest and most delightful restaurants that we have eaten at.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    While the food was good, I am not much of a fan of fixed price menus as they tend to force you to overeat. The wait staff seemed to be hovering around waiting to snatch something off the table the very second that you put it down. Slow to refill Iced Tea glasses. Portions were good sized, but seemed overpriced based on the total bill. A place I can say "been there, done that" but probably not a good enough impression to justify a return visit.

    We had a great time. Ir was our 30th anniversary. The menu was outstanding and when I said I had a tough choice to make, our waiter brought out a tasing of the entree I did not choose so I could taste it. We had drinks at the bar before being seating and they were perfectly mixed. Overall a wonderful place for a special occasion.

    a disappointing experience for such a quality reputation. first they stuck us at a table between a bus station and a serving door. once i went back to the hostess for reseating, service was not attentive even though we had a late reservation and the restaurant thinned out. my spanish mackeral was inedible and no one seemed to care. at a place like gramercy tavern i expect a high quality experience. it was just fair.

Each dish combines flavors in inventive and sublime ways. We'll be back not just for special occassions but any time we want a great dining experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 5/31/2008
    The Gramercy Tavern is excellent and will remain a "must visit" restaurant when we are next in New York. We booked in to the dining room and opted for the Taster Menu which was superb. All the staff are attentive and have a strong knowledge of not only the food that is on offer but also of the extensive drinks menu that covers wines, beers, ciders and spirits. Although a busy restaurant, at no time did we feel that we were being hurried along and we were left to take the whole experience at our own pace. We enjoyed our evening meal so much that we returned for the Sunday Lunch session before flying back to the UK. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

    We had a special occassion (two daughters who got masters degrees this month). We all had Gramercy Tavern's tasting menu. The food was as terrific as any. The setting is very nice, but not "overdone". The service was impeccable - just the right balance of extraordinary attention to detail, but at the same time friendly and "not pretentious". We had an extra person join us after we had ordered dessert - the staff had a seat set for him before he got to the table and brought a wonderful dessert without our even asking. It was just lovely. Dick Brickson P.S. - one of my daughters also has a degree from the Culinary Institute of America and she was also equally impressed and delighted)

    Absolutely spectacular! This was a truly memorable dining experience. The chef's menu is expertly paired with a selection of fabulous wines and the timing of the courses could not have been better. Each dish was delicious and the portions were not over-the-top (I did not leave feeling as though I had eaten too much!). The service was really the best I have had in a long while, and each member of the restaurant staff was knowledgeable and clearly very well trained. Highly recommended!
