  • Great Summer Brunch Spot

    Beautiful outdoor dining on the roof of The Gramercy Park Hotel, yummy food & cocktail list. My only complaint is that they were out of a few of their main options by our 2:45 pm reservation.

    The service was amazing, especially Sky who was our server. The view, ambience and artwork incredible. The food on the other hand would have been so much better but ever dish, my husband and mine, all came out with something burnt on the plate. The food for us was disappointing. Thought it would be better at the GPH. Cocktails on the otherhand were flawless.

  • A relaxing breakfast
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 8/19/2013
    After a long trip from Japan and a restful evening in our rooms at the GPH, it was a pleasure to go to the rooftop Terrace for breakfast. The ambiance is perfect for a nice family breakfast though everyone in our family was over 20. The food was very good. And the staff seated us at a table that allowed us to enjoy the early morning but avoid the direct sunlight that shines on some tables. It was a very enjoyable time.

    After seeing the picture of Gramercy Terrace, I expected a formal experience with a lavish Sunday brunch buffet... that it is not. I could have had a better breakfast at my hotel for free, but not with quite as much ambiance. The food is fine, but very simple. Think artsy Vermont, not classy New York.

  • semi-fancy rooftop brunch
    dbd2109
    Dined on 8/17/2013
    The hotel's decor is eclectic mid-century with interesting pop art choices which adds to the ambiance of the terrace. The food was great for the given view/atmosphere and prices but portion is quite small as some reviewers may have mentioned. If you want to sit and chat for awhile, go with the buffet brunch option instead. The bar looks amazing and would be ideal for a romantic lunch date. The experience is not enough to bring me back again but I'd definitely recommend to others.

  • Awesome Lunch Experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2002
    Dined on 8/15/2013
    Had a great time at Gramercy Terrace. Even though the Chicken Andouille Sausage was taken off the menu, the rest of the menu was great. Wine selection was a joy too. Has our waitress allow me to take a picture of the bottle so I can purchase it when I return home to Atlanta, GA. Speaking of waitresses, Skyy was a gem, she knew the menu, helped us to make our selections by providing recommendations, and was very attentive. She added to our wonderful dining experience. The ambiance and decor both added a warm feeling, we felt so apiece and it really went well with our light lunch. Overall, it was superb!

  • An Unexpected Find
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/13/2013
    My lunch companion and I usually go to well-known (but attitude-laden) places during Restaurant Week. The Gramercy Terrace turned out to be a wonderful surprise. The menu was varied and interesting. The chilled corn soup was well-spiced. The generous portion of grilled fish came on a bed of delicious squash and tomatoes. The berry shortcake dessert, a mash of berries, small slices of pound cake and some whipped cream, was fine, but unexciting. Our server was friendly, helpful and patient (no attitude here). Though the day was cloudy, the restaurant seemed sunny. We explored the venue after lunch and discovered an art gallery and a huge ceiling fixture made entirely of light bulbs. This is a place to which I can't wait to return.

    We had brunch on Sunday. Since we are not from NY we did not know that you cannot have a mimosa or Bloody Mary until after 12:00. Not that it was a show stopper, but we were looking forward to sitting and enjoying a brunch cocktail on such an amazing terrace! The menu we felt was pretty limited but what we ordered was good. Eggs benedict or omelets would have been a nice addition to the menu. I bet the terrace is awesome at night - lighting looked pretty amazing!

    WAK2013VIP
    Dined on 8/9/2013
    The food was nearly as good as the oasis-like atmosphere of the rooftop atrium. The red snapper with its melange of veggies was cooked perfectly. The chocolate cheesecake was light enough not to induce a 30 minute "quick walk" to rid the extra calories. Now if only the 2 Russian 20'something model wannabies would have taken a breath or two from their yakkathon, I would have experienced near bliss.

    The outdoor terrace is very nice really well designed and decorated. The atmosphere is very peaceful and cozy. However the menu is a little bit poor for a Brunch and finding the classics would make this place amazing.

    This was my wife's breakfast brunch and I asked the restaurant for help in making this a special visit. My wife was treated fantastically! Buck's Fizz on arrival, many of the team wishing her happy birthday, as well as a treat from the chef! Fantastic service, a great setting and lovely brunch! Thank you Gramercy Terrace, we will be back next time we are in NYC, you ensured my wife had a great start to her special day!

    Dined on 7/31/2013
    We enjoyed the ambience of the garden. The food was excellent and imaginative and the service was wonderful. The only reason we didn't give it an excellent for ambience is that you would not want to have lunch on a very hot day because you are totally outside on the 18th floor. On a pleasant day , it is really charming.

    JAVIPE
    Dined on 7/24/2013
    I had the Summer 2013 Restaurant Lunch Week Menu. For starters, the Chilled Corn Soup was quite tasty: creamy and with a touch of sweetness. The Red Snapper was just okay; the fish was a bit dry, and the varied layers of flavor on the dish didn't really marry very well with each other. The Chocolate Cheesecake dessert more than made up for the second course. The Gramercy Park Hotel location and 18th Floor position of this establishment is a unsung find in the neighborhood.

    I took my Father here for lunch to celebrate Father's Day and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the service at Gramercy Terrace. Tyler, the GM, was exceptionally personable and welcoming. The red snapper and bison burger were to die for and the hand cut rustic style steak fries are worth going back for alone! Thank you for an awesome lunch, Gramercy Terrace! I will be back again soon!

    We visited this place at my friends suggestion (she lives in NYC) for a Father's Day breakfast. While the menu is somewhat limited, the food was fantastic and service even better! The ambiance was equally great (even though we had a forecast of rain that morning so the overhead glass "ceiling" was closed) and the terrace offers great view of the surrounding Manhattan (and the Empire State building). What a great little gem in NYC. I cannot wait to be back another time when it's all open and perhaps stay at the Gramercy Hotel (the terrace is the top floor of the hotel). Three thumbs up!
