We completely enjoyed ourWe completely enjoyed our lunch. Food was faultless and the service was terrific. I would be a regular if I lived in NYC!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways fabulousUntil my meal at SD26, Gramery was at the top of my top special occasion restaurants. It still beats SD re the ambiance of the main dining rooms, but in my book, it has serious competition. Still, the food is excellent American cuisine - a great experience!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a special experienceI have eaten at gramercy Tavern many times. The food, presentation, decor and service are always exceptional. It is one of my top two favorites.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionI have always heard great things about the restaurant so I took my daughter for her 25th Birthday. It was very nice. Service was great and they treated her special - candle and all. It is rather expensive but worth it.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time dining at thisOur first time dining at this restaurant. We had a great experience. The food and service were outstanding. We plan to go back!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMStill Operates at a High LevelWhat I like best about Gramercy Tavern is its consistency from one visit to the next. The high level of food and service have been maintained over the years. The food is creative without being overly fussy.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMImpeccable as always. My favorite!Exquisite food served exquisitely by a very experienced, warm staff. It's always a treat to dine at Gramercy Tavern. I had to restrain myself from licking my dessert plate! That is not something I'm normally tempted to do!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThree happy foodies from StockholmWe went here for my husbands 50 birthdady and we had the lunch tasting menu and it was great! As an extra bonus was the recomended wines went very well together with the food. We got some complimentary sparkling when we came and the dessert was decorated with happy birthday on my husbands dessert. A appreciated touch. We do understand all the positive reviews after enjoying the lunch. Staff was very attentive, professional and service minded with an elegant touch. We would love to come back and can highly recomend this restaurant.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMVery accommodating. WonderfulVery accommodating. Wonderful in every way. Remains one of my favorite places6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMInventive, flavorful, worth it.You don't need to come here with a conversational friend, because all you will want to do is concentrate on the intricate flavors and textures of your food, pause, close your eyes, and moan with pleasure after each bite. My colleague and I both had fish (I had the arctic char) and we were beyond pleased with the quality and inventiveness of the flavors. Cocktails and dessert were also fabulous. I thought the decor was very beige, but my colleague thought it was beautiful. Doesn't matter anyway, I was plenty happy gazing lovingly at my food. This place is well-rated for a reason.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific; Excellent food (lamb,Terrific; Excellent food (lamb, lobster sada, etc.); Terrific waitress.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the $25 Cab ride!What a gem!
Very interesting innovative menu.
Beef tartar with pistachios, Yum! My green salad included very small sunflower seeds and other small chopped nuts, equally
Tasty. Maybe a little more cheese on it. The Red Snapper, from the gulf, (which we can't get on the West Coast) exquisite! Perfectly cooked, still translucent inside.
Can't wait for a return trip to NYC, and Gramercy Tavern, Thanks6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen in NY, do Gramercy Tavern!When I sought out online a place to have lunch with my BFF (best friend forever) while on our first trip to NY, I found Gramercy Tavern. My godson and his wife (who had flown all the way from the Philippines to NY for their anniversary dinner last year) highly recommended it!
My BFF and I were not disappointed: the food was to die-for, every dish a feast for the eyes and the taste buds; the service was impeccable, especially our wait staff Aexandra who was very attentive without being obtrusive; and the ambience added to the whole dining experience!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGrammercy Tavern - OutstandingJust excellent. Had the 3-course menu, food and service and ambience was perfect. A delightful evening.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGrammercy GreatEverything you would expect a fine New York restaurant to be. Wonderful ambiance, great food and attentive, not intrusive service. Spaghetti/seafood sauce appetizer outstanding. Sea bass entree brilliantly prepared. Desserts delicious and the surprise intermezzos appreciated. Great dining experience. Expensive but the value is there.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful first experienceI went for lunch at Gramercy Tavern and had a wonderful experience. The food was exciting (snap pea custard... on the house as it was my first time), excellent service (Rob B. was warm and attentive), and an overall sophisticated atmosphere. I'll be coming back.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!!We came to NYC for our honeymoon and the staff at Gramercy Tavern were fabulous with us! We had the perfect romantic meal! It did cost a lot but was perhaps the best meal we've had and we do like to eat out at restaurants! We went for the seasonal tasting menu which I'd definitely recommend! We got a free sparkling wine and desert as they knew it was our honeymoon! Food was great, wine was great, perfect evening!!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNot your neighborhood tavern!We went to New York for a visit with our daughter and picked Gramercy Tavern for our farewell dinner together. We chose the tasting menu and paired it with a wonderful, and reasonable, wine suggested by our waiter. It was probably one of the more expensive meals that we have had as a family, but worth every penny for the experience. Every course was outstanding and the service was superb. Five stars all the way around!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFlawless Food & ServiceDined Sunday, June 2nd. Two of us had the regular tasting menu, one had the vegetarian tasting menu. Every aspect of the meal was perfect. The presentation, flavors, service, ambiance - simply flawless. The service at Gramercy Tavern is excellent without being pretentious. The server was relaxed and friendly without being overly familiar. The evening could not have been more enjoyable. This is the third time I've enjoyed the tasting menu at Gramercy Tavern. I very much appreciate the reliable quality.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMNo Pretension, Great FoodThis is what a fine dining experience should be. Danny Meyer's staff, from the folks in the kitchen to those in the front of the house, know how to make a night unforgettable. It goes without saying that the food was exemplary. We will always return to the USQ Hospitality Group restaurants!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMwe had a vegetarian in ourwe had a vegetarian in our group and he found his options very limiting.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food for this lunch wasThe food for this lunch was outstanding - fluke escabeche and arctic char.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely.....We always love Gramercy Tavern. The only slightly less fabulous thing this time was our waiter who was competent and nice but came across as incredibly superficial - as in faking a smile. His English wasn't as good as it could be which I'm assuming may have been the cause or may have complicated the situation.
Other than that, wonderful evening....5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAhhhhAs always, we enjoyed the creative, seasonal cuisine and exceptional service. The intriguing 5 course tasting menu, from fluke tartar with hot radish to chocolate pecan cake with butter pecan ice cream made lunch a delight. We never miss a chance to visit.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply superbI selected Gramercy Tavern for a get-together lunch with a college buddy who was visiting from California. What an excellent choice. Service is first rate but friendly. Food is excellent and unique. Excellent wine choices both by the glass and from the cellar. And at the end of the meal, I must say that the bill was less than I'd expected, so I consider it a value for the money. It isn't cheap, but you truly get what you pay for and then some. I'd be very surprised to read a negative review.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was prepared to perfectionThe food was prepared to perfection. The desserts were to die for and they kept coming. My only complaint is that there was no beef or veal on the menu. When you think of Tavern, you think of steak. I ordered fish and it was prepared perfectly and delicious.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding dining experienceThis is a wonderful dining experience. Every course was special and the service was warm and friendly without being intrusive.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectionThe best food, the best service, a lovely experience in every way. Bravo to everyone at the Gramercy Tavern!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMService and foodBe prepared for waiting to be seated. Service is indeed noticiable. Waiting for your table and main course shouldn't be that long. That is the only caveat I found.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA NY classicYou can't go wrong with GT. Fresh ingredients, impeccable and friendly service, everything goes smooth and all you have to do is enjoy the experience. I dined there for my sister's birthday, we chose the a' la carte menu, I had the tartare for starter- pleasantly seasoned with pistachios and olives and herbs, and the pork loin and belly as a main, all delicious. And perfect sized portions.
For desert I recommend the lemon meringue.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat New York diningWe had the seasonal tasting menu for lunch along with wine pairings.
It was a fabulous New York dining experience!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!The food was absolutely amazing, the service impeccable and the overall experience was excellent.
If we lived in New York it would be our favourite restaurant by far.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceHad a great afternoon at the Gramercy Tavern where we had the tasting menu. Everything tasted superb and our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent mealDelicious seasonal tasting menu. Varied and delectable. Service was great, and the price was not too bad. Went to celebrate a friend's birthday and it was a great experience.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely food and great serviceWe had a special lunch here after our elopement to NYC from England! We enjoyed the lobster salad and sea bass and we were made to feel extremely welcome and the service was spot on. We were not rushed to order when enjoying our cocktails and everything was just perfect!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMsuperlative all around....oursuperlative all around....our second courses (sea bass / pasta) were a little on the salty side but otherwise great dining experience5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal I've eaten!This was my second time at Gramercy, was celebrating graduation from a Masters program. Top notch, high quality, attention to detail, incredible food and service.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways superb! Our waitressAlways superb! Our waitress was so wonderful!
Love Love Love the special touches!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAs good as it getsSuperlative food and service, done with grace and refinement, while being able to comfortably converse with ones table-mates, is the mark of the few that are truly the worlds best restaurants. Gramercy tavern is on that very short list, and is so deserving of its longstanding reputation. The tasting menu showcased the chefs prodigious talents, and I would suggest it to anyone who wants to experience inventive seasonal flavors. I waited several years to come here...I will not make that mistake again.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMone word reviewGlorious! But I guess this needs to be fifty characters so I'll just say it again. Absolutely gloriously delicious!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMterrific lunchI had a terrific lunch with an old friend. The food was superb but the service was quite slow and not typical of the attentive service we both remember from past visits to Gramercy Tavern. The man passing out bread to a neighboring table actually elbowed my friend in the back of her head! The service was much better in past visits!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb experienceIdeal choice for lunch in this neighborhood. Food was excellent, but I'm not a foodie. I care most about ambience, comfort, having a relaxed and enjoyable time. This is a lovely restaurant, very comfortable. Service is consistently helpful, courteous, not intrusive, with a just-right attitude. Phone confirmation was friendly and accommodating of date and time uncertainties, and rescheduling via Open Table was not a problem. We were seated immediately upon arrival, at a quiet table as requested. For some reason our main course (at lunch) was delayed. There must have been a problem in the kitchen. Nevertheless, the service was so good I forgive them.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExtraordinary dining experienceExceptional food and service done with grace and a smile. One of our favorite restaurants in the world. It couldn't have been any better.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMStill wonderful after allStill wonderful after all these years. We had a lovely lunch. The lobster appetizer was light but loaded with taste and the sea bass dish looked so gorgeous I wanted to take a picture (it tasted good too). A wonderful experience from start to finish.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the very bestWe had the seasonal tasting menu and it was fantastic. The food was only surpassed by the service. Our captain made excellent suggestions for wine pairing by the glass. It made for a wonderful culinary adventure.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFood Fit for RoyaltyWe have been trying to eat at this restaurant for some time and finally we did. The atmosphere is only surpassed by the creative and delicious food and excellent service.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experience!Loved Gramercy Tavern - was my first time being there and wow, had such a wonderful time and enjoyed the amazing selection of food. I ordered the seasonal tasting menu and had such a great array of delicious food. Bill came to be a little over $400 which is fine for a restaurant of this caliber. Would recommend to anyone keen on some fine dining and great ambience in NYC.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly enjoyableVisited for lunch. Had 5-course tasting menu, and our waitress put together a wine pairing from wines-by-glass. Everything was inventive and well executed. Wines were well matched. Service was friendly and ambience was comfortable.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNo wonder it wins awardsI absolutely loved my lunch at this restaurant. Fresh ingredients, knowledgeable wait staff, beautiful atmosphere, and presentation will bring me back when I return to New York.. I even took a picture of my entree (sea bass) which I never do at restaurants.
Fabulous.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently excellentEvery course was superb as were the wine recommendations. Very good ambience and would recommend to anyone5/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
