"Upstairs At 21" was closed
"Upstairs At 21" was closed when we arrived, so we ate in the downstairs dining room, which is rich with tradition. The food is very good, the decor is clubby, the service is excellent. Our waiter regaled us with stories of celebrities and politicians who've eaten here during it's long history. A fascinating place to experience.

Service was amazing
I took my mom there, and the waiters were amazing. Especially, my table waiter Nick was absolutely amazing. He gave us details about the history of the restaurant, a nice wine suggestion to pair with our meals, and fantastic service and flexibility. My mom is from out of the country and did not realize that beef tartar is not well done. She could not eat it. So, Nick and the restaurant was flexible enough to replace her meal with something else at no additional cost. They were very attentive too.
One problem is with the door boy outside who was catching the cab for the customers. He hijacked my cab in front of me to give it to the customer who asked for his help. Very rude! He made me not to give the full 5 star service rating.

Great restaurant. The seating
Great restaurant. The seating arrangement is very nice with the old toys hanging from the roof. The food was also very good and the service is exceptional. No delays whatsoever. I highly recommend anyone visiting New York city to dine at 21.

From the moment walking into 21's iconic doors, you were treated with special care and you trusted that all the culinary members of the restaurant sincerely wanted you to have a special distinctive experience. Dinner at 21 lived up to its move-star-like hype.

I have been here before, but this past time a few days ago was so wonderful! Couldn't have asked for better service and the food was delish! We had originally booked at Upstairs, but were contacted and told it was not open that night due to a private event. So we were given a wonderful table and a bottle of champagne and were treated like VIPS!
If you are in NYC, this is a must! True old New York, with updated menus. Christopher and Viviana were the best!
Will definitely go again!

A very nice evening at what
A very nice evening at what is best described as a NYC institution. We were not rushed although there during the pre-show dinner period. Good drink, crab appetizer and scallop main were excellent. A nice dining experience, all within a restaurant that is an experience unto itself.

The historic reputation of this legendary restaurant does not disappoint. From the moment you walk down the steps you are transported to the era of civility, elegance and service. This kind of dining is getting more and more rare in our society. What a breath of fresh air to know it still exists. The food, service was fabulous. Order anything, it will be great. Thanks to "21" for keeping your standards so high. You have not succumbed to the baseball cap and iphone crowd. Dont ever change.

Dinner out for birthday
Dinner and service was outstanding,went above and beyond.My dates birthday was that evening and at the end of the evening they brought out a single candle lit and placed it on the table for her, then wished her a happy birthday. They also brought out a glass of water for the long stem rose I had given to her that evening.

Enchanting Restaurant In Midtown
This restaurant is fancy. The food is impeccable and the service is outstanding, the Maitre D down to the the doorman has a very positive attitude and are there to serve you. If your looking for a nice night with your significant other this is the place to be. Upstairs at "21" offers an intimate and excellent ambiance, it is quiet but not so quiet that its like a funeral. The thing that really impressed me is that the room is beautiful as well as small-medium, by that i mean, you feel like you have slice of peace and tranquility in new york. The food was impeccable as well as the suggested wine pairings, the best part is that its totally affordable plus they validate parking (parking garage next door), Definitely will be going back

Romantic dining bliss
Dining at the 21 Club was exquisite! I wanted to surprise my darling partner for her birthday; oh yes, she was indeed surprised! Our maître d' Kyle was wonderfully courteous & helpful as was our waiter Nick. They both worked magic to make the evening of celebration a success! 21 Club will remain a great place to go for special occasions &/or a romantic rendezvous!

My wife and I were looking for a nice restaurant to go to on our anniversary. After some searching on the internet I found the 21 Club and it looked like a nice place for a very reasonable price. We did the 3 course dinner Upstairs and we had a fabulous meal, with outstanding service. I would highly recommend Upstairs at 21.

This classic dinning at it's best without the stuffiest. The Bar area is vibrant with people, the attentive of the bar staff is impeccable. The upstairs has it's separate serving room so it does not feel like the mass of people compare to other high end restaurants. This it the place where you want go for those special moments or just to feel having exceptional service.

A true gem of a place
What a fantastic place, we ate upstairs which was beautiful. Exceptional service and a really intimate dining room. We had a show booked, which meant we couldn't stay as long as we wanted but if given the choice we would have stayed all night!

The food & service were excellent but it was extremely loud and not the romantic dinner that I had envisioned.

What a special place!
This was our first time to 21 and we loved it! When we walked in we immediately sensed that this was a very special, Old New York type of place. Beautifully decorated for the holidays. Dark wood paneled walls. High,, energetic noise level and bustling bar scene. It was very inviting! We were greeted immediately by the host staff and taken upstairs to the small, quaint yet romantic dining room. Very different vibe than downstairs but for a special occasion this is the perfect setting. Our server Kyle was very attentive but not intrusive. The price fixe menu is very reasonable for such an iconic restaurant. The wine selection is unbelievable and the food was excellent! Loved the entire experience. Will definitely go back!
