My daughter and I went for
My daughter and I went for a late dinner, and really enjoyed the Greek salad and the mac and cheese, a perfect combination which we shared. There was a bachelorette party going on so the noise level may have been more than usual, but it was a Friday night. I went again for dinner a couple of nights later by myself because it was close to my hotel, and again was very pleased with the food and the service.

Not a great place for a business
Not a great place for a business dinner due to the "vibrant bar scene". Should request table downstairs.

BEST TAVERN ON THE TOWN
Park Avenue Tavern sits squarely between a great pub and an excellent restaurant! Warm, inviting, informal pub atmosphere, creative menu, delicious food and superb, caring and attentive service. Good choice for a reasonably-priced meal, or a quick, yummy lamb burger. If bar scene is too "energetic", there's a quieter and more private section at the back, also great for a group.

One of my favorite restaurants
One of my favorite restaurants in New York City. It looks cosmopolitan, the food is excellent, the service impeccable. But there is also a feeling that you have arrived home. And only steps away from Grand Central. Do not miss the tables with taps downstairs, which may need to be reserved in advance. So much fun!

Very nice place to get a casual
Very nice place to get a casual brunch or lunch while in the Grand Central area.
The food was very nicely presented and cooked to our choice.

Not just a neighborhood spot
Park Avenue Tavern is a great spot for those in the neighborhood or staying at the nearby Hyatt but food is worth traveling for. The lentil and pasta soup of the day was delicious but wished it had been hotter. Southwest chicken sandwich was a daily special. Very good

a great dinner
We found this place on yelp while in town for vacation. Everything was fantastic from the ambiance to the food. We had the mussels, the roasted bone marrow and chicken pastilla. I cannot recommend this place enough!

Second time around
The food is always great and the service was wonderful. It was way too noisy for a dinner with my boss though on a Thursday night. When I had gone for lunch a few weeks before it was much quieter. Just be aware of timing. Great for friends though.

don't order tomaoto soup if
you don't like goat cheese. the taste was too overwhelming. grilled cheese was good, but not the best. a fun place, though. I'd go again, just order differently.

Great spot in neighborhood
One of my favorite hunts in midtown; great food, service for food is generally good even when the bar is PACKED. Unfortunately, the night we were there the AC wasn't working well so it was pretty muggy in there.

Grand Central Crowded
The place was packed with people having a good time. My friend and I had a good dinner here. Service was excellent. Was louder than I usually care for, but it was fine.

We've been here twice and we found food very good, outstanding service, price in range. The ambience is really nice. Suggested!

Love this place
We're staying at the Kimpton 70 Park Avenue across the street and they've shut down they're restaurant, much to our dismay! We found the Park Avenue Tavern though and it's great! The people are super friendly and food is very good :)

Worth the price
It's a little pricey, being on Park Avenue We went for Sunday brunch ad it was eeverything one would imagine brunch on Park Avenue to be. Mimosas and bellinis, sausage and white bean casserole with a sunnyside egg on top, but fluffy pancakes for the traditionalists.

Went here with friends because of proximity to Grand Central (they were returning to CT that evening). Lobster roll was fresh and delicious, spinach salad was excellent and super-sized. Don't remember what everyone had but all were pleased with selections.Staff was very attentive. Ed, the manager, came to say hello; our server, Elizabeth, was gracious and helpful. Only drawback(to us)was the noise. Bar is situated in a ring in the center of the room, creating a problem for diners who sit at tables surrounding it. It was impossible to hear each other above the racket of the bar crowd. They weren't out of line--just enjoying themselves. Ed assured us that it was a lot more quiet at brunch. Brunch menu looked great. We plan to give it a try.

Lots of energy here and a solid menu. Place is usually packed. Two levels of dining. Very friendly service. You will have fun!

Good local spot
This is a good local spot we eat at when in NYC. Close to grand central and the east side. Basic with special food menu.

What a find!!!!
Great food. Super friendly service, even got great advice from two waitresses on finding an apartment in NYC - we were helping our son move to NYC. Sat/Sunday brunch is not to be missed. Potatoes served with brunch are to die for - never had any like them. Fabulous cocktails.

Great for dinner and happy
Great for dinner and happy hour. Food was delicious however the noise level was a bit too loud. I had trouble at times hearing my boyfriend across the table. The service was excellent!

Great place for after work
Great place for after work drinks & dinner with friends or co-workers!

great farm to table restaurant!
Felt like everything was unique to this restaurant. Everything from the drinks to the food is their own delicious creation! Prosciutto hash and sundried tomato and goat cheese quiche were to die for!

Found a new gem
Had business dinner here as it was convenient from my clients hotel. This is a great neighborhood tavern with a lively bar scene and great food. Had their mac n cheese (with pancetta and gruyere) and their chicken entrée (marinated in tequila). Both were excellent. Our server was very friendly and attentive and manager came by and made sure all was good. Drinks were well done. They are doing it right and would highly recommend the Park Avenue Tavern!

My favorite spot in NYC!
Stayed at 70 park right across the street... i wish i found this place sooner because the food is amazing! For brunch they have $5 custom cocktails and mocktails... delicious!

The hostess was great....very
The hostess was great....very welcoming upon arrival and reconfirmed the details of my reservation. The restaurant is pretty loud so it was challening to have a business conversation, but the food was great.
8/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
Nice neighborhood diamond in the rough. Stuffed chicken, mussels, Filet, Soft shelled crab all excellent! 50% off bottles of wine on Sundays makes it well worth the trip. Good energy!

Great Place, Great Owners, Great !
This place is always a winner with owners who are there and engaged. Food is always good and reasonable (it is on Park Ave). Have a reservation, it is aways full and the bar is always alive with locals and 30's somethings after work.
Go, its a winner

A great spot near Grand Central
One of my favorite places in the neighborhood; only criticism is the chef is heavy handed with salt. Not for the noise-sensitive during the week.

One of my very favorite restaurants
One of my very favorite restaurants. Great food and reasonable prices ! I have loved every meal I have had there !!!

This is an awesome place for drinks. If there for business dinner ask for corner table as it is noisy. The spinach artichoke dip is to for for
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love Park Avenue Tavern. The food and drinks are always great. They also deliver excellent service. It's a very popular place for happy hour so can be crowded and loud.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food. Relatively quiet with football in the background (which was fine for us on a Sunday evening). Service is very friendly and makes you feel like a regular guest. Will definitely return.

Consistently Good & Enjoyable
I have been to Park Avenue Tavern many times for lunch. I have never had a complaint, and have always appreciated the service, ambience, menu and food quality. This is a well-run, special and especially nice place for lunch.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
fun and cozy
This was a comfortable restaurant, pleasant employees that made it obvious they enjoyed there job. The food was excellent and plentiful, the self taps in the lower level was fun and enjoyable. The decor makes all customers feel at home. This is and will become a favorite when I make my visits to new York City in the future. Excellent ambience and noise level is acceptable.
