The Sunday Night Roast prix
The Sunday Night Roast prix fixe dinner (where kids under 12 are free) is a fabulous deal and great way to experience the restaurant. We came early and received a lot of attention from the staff, who were very patient and attentive to my 11 year old. The food was superb and beautifully presented. A great opportunity to introduce a yound child to the fine dining experience.

Best oysters that I've had in many years

Crown is a true neighborhood
Crown is a true neighborhood gem. Definitely "clubby" but not in a pretentious, UES way. This restaurant was relaxed with a definite style. Met and seated promptly in the glass garden room, our table was lovely. Food was fabulous and a great place to take out of towners or for a special occasion!

Self conscious but successful
Crown serves very good food. Between us we had cote de boeuf, steamed bass and an artichoke starter, good puddings so Crown doesn't need to try so hard to be posh and most certainly doesn't need the unctuous service I hadn't met maitre d'hôtel before so there really was no need to greet like I was his benefactor. That aside, a very enjoyable dinner (particularly icons enjoys the so ily anxious sockless men of the UES trying too hard).

I was surprised by how quiet
I was surprised by how quiet Crown was on a Sunday evening. The lack of other patrons did not impact the ambience, the quality of the food or the always attentive and professional service.

Upper east side elegance
My husband I shared the silk sheet pasta w white bolognaise & pine nuts, followed with a cote de Boeuf for two. It was served with a memorable jus and bernaise sauce. Romantic and understated elegance. The large length-sized window overlooks neighbors' back gardens. I can't wait to go back.

great experience at Crown
We really enjoyed a lovely evening at Crown. The entire staff were very attentive and couldn't be nicer. The ambience is warm, dark, cozy and romantic. The food was very good except my NY Strip was chewy, but they offered to take it off the bill - no questions asked! Will definitely be going back.

My #1 restaruant in NYC
I've been going to Crown fairly regularly since last autumn and it is always a wonderful evening. I love the bar - which has a dark, right bank of Paris feel to it and James the bartender is great. Crown is sophisticated and elegant and the two parts of the restaurant have a different feel - the atrium is open and airy - a great spot for dinner with clients or a good friend. The darker interior is romantic - perfect for a date with someone special. The menu is inventive and delicious and the wines are superb.

Great little spot for a romantic
Great little spot for a romantic evening and the food is amazing. The steak was perfectly done and the chocolate soufflé was incredible. This would be a great spot for a business dinner as it is quiet and is a very relaxing atmosphere where you can actually talk.

My husband and I went to Crown after having several friends recommend it. The setting is beautiful and the food was excellent. We started with oysters and tuna tartar - both were amazing. We then had salad and each ordered fish for dinner. Everything was spectacular.

Love this place
The ambience is cozy and sophisticated and the townhouse location makes you feel like you're dining in a privileged spot. While it was not crowded on a summer Friday evening, I imagine that even when full, I will be able to hear my dinner partners converse. The hamburger was outstanding and my friends all seemed to enjoy their selections, including the beefsteak tomatoes. The private dining room downstairs is perfect for a group dinner.

There is nothing bad to say about Crow! It felt like an old money, glamorous NYC restaurant. Perfect in every way with a cocktail menu the best I have ever seen.

Outstanding Upper East Side
This was an outstanding dining experience from start to finish. The menu and wine list are both very well done. There are excellent choices for beef, fish and chicken. The setting is in an old brownstone on the upper east side. Beautiful room with stellar service. All this and NO ATTITUDE FROM THE STAFF---only warmth and genuine smiles. Where can you find that anymore. Dress up for the occasion.

Superb service from arrival through departure. The cuisine was exceptional. Couldn't ask for more!

another DeLucie masterpiece
Great UES spot-- his most beautiful location, more airy and roomy than the other restaurants. Wonderful lighting and spacious bar. Great and meticulous service..... both at the bar and at dinner-- had drinks at the bar pre-dinner and they didn't rush to seat us or take our order. Delicious "new american" menu-- everything from the grilled octopus to the lup de mer to the french fries and tuna tartar were fantastic, full of flavor and perfectly cooked. Nice wine list. Have been there twice and look forward to going back.

The food was absolutely amazing! We had crudo of the day (raw sea bass), berkshire pork chop and scallops with amrican caviar and for the desserts we had sorbet and gelato sampler and creme fraiche cake. More than the outstanding food, the service was amazingly great. Also the noise level is just right to have a nice chat with your friends! I think Crown became my favorite restaurant in nyc (-:

Great food, great service.
Great food, great service. Nice ambiance at the bar, a little loud in the dining room. Overall, a very nice place. We would definately go there again.

Only Steps from Metropolitan Museum
Excellent in every respect, a quiet oasis with New York's bustle outside and old world charm inside its townhouse doors. We experienced Sunday brunch with the lightest of Ricotta pancakes, a beef burger as well as a steak sandwich, all of which was expertly cooked. Even the Bloody Mary with horseradish was a perfect balance. Highly recommended. We'll be back.

Excellent Upper East Side Eatery
The Garden Room is really special and besides excellent food and service the crowd is well dressed and mannered..no phones nor small children..at least when we were there..

Fine food in spectacular surroundings. The Maitre D' is engaging and pleasant. The wait staff, however, were a bit inattentive. The culinary offerings were supberb!

Excellent all around
We arrived early and had drinks at the bar to start - it has a great ambience and a good selection of high-end liquor. Then we were seated and had a fabulous meal. The recommendations from the waiter were great - we had the burrata to start and a half portion of the pasta carbonara which was to die for. For the main course, we had the pork chop and the halibut - both very flavorful and nicely presented. The food was outstanding all around, and the service was impeccable. Will go again.

Crown delivered on a great night out. From the first course, and then the second, it is truffle season you know, and then the third everyone was prepared and served to perfection.
Service was extremely professional and attentive. Andrea did a wonderful job of taking care of us. And Scott at the front of the restaurant was an excellent host.

Crown is a perfect experience
I have eaten at pretty much every five star restaurant in New York. Crown is something extra special. It goes without saying that the quality and presentation of the food is perfection. The room is warm, dim, gracious and inviting. The maitre'd is welcoming and knows you by name after only one visit. The staff is attentive and courteous without hovering or bothering. It is the perfect evening and culinary experience. Every time I dine there I feel like it couldn't get any better---and then it does!

Arrived with no expectations except the hope of an early seating which was graciously granted with a precious romantic corner location. Atmosphere was cosy and festive without being ostentatious. Dim lighting overcomes rather close-knit seating. Service was attentive, precise, unencumbered, quick. All food courses were savory, freshly prepared, exceeding all expectations. Wine selections and special drinks were excellent. Friendly, inviting staff that engages a return visit. The bar appears to be a quietly superb asset.

Dining at Crown on Thanksgiving was just the delightful experience we had envisioned. The brownstone decor provides the lovely, wood panelled, Manhattan east side residence ambiance that was perfect for a special occassion. Service was welcoming, friendly and eficient, even on an evening crowded with what seemed like neighvorhood locals, but without being overpowering. The fixed menu was delicious, wondefrul agnolotti starter and of course, turkey and stuffing like the home made must we had expected on the holiday. Look forward to visiting again next time in NY.
