    The food could have been better. Serving size are quite small for the price. The menu doesn't change often enough. It could have been more seasonal. My pork loin entree with pork belly was strange. The texture of the loin was limp and squishy and there was a minuscule little square of pork belly the size of a crouton. Very I appealing. Skip the dining room and eat The bar menu!

    It was a particularly special occasion being my 22nd anniversary and my wedding night. Although I didn't expect mountains to be moved for us, I would have thought the experience deserved a little gravity from more than the very sweet and kind front of house staff. Our waiter was personable and informed but the overall service was not exceptional. I have been to this restaurant many times when everything was seamless and ran like clockwork. Unfortunately it wasn't on this special night. The food was good but not as good as times past. Maybe it was an off night. With all the other amazing restaurants in the city I really believe Gramercy Tavern needs to examine all operations if they want their loyal fans to keep coming back.

    We had a really nice evening and the service was outstanding. We had 3 desserts plus the tray of bite sized ones and found them all disappointing. We were surprised as everything else was wonderful. We will come back but will opt for the cheese next time instead of the over produced and bad desserts.

    Went this week to dine here for my birthday and was not disappointed! Food was delicious- had the corn custard and pork belly dinner. My wife had the beef carppaccio. Delicious! The best part was the service- we were not rushed and service was always ready when it was required. Would definitely go back soon.

    Extremely overpriced for average tasting food. $96.00 for a small appetizer, entre (3 small slices of lamb shoulder, 2 bites of sausage & some ratatouille) and desert. Worst of all was nothing was really special for the palate. Doubtful any of the four of us would ever return to this place which is highly rated and always sold out.

    My wife and I had the tasting menu on August 2 and we could not have been more impressed. Each course was superb. Service was friendly and non-obtrusive. Each dish was delivered with a quick (rather than long-winded) explanation. Staff had clearly tasted everything and were knowledgeable, made excellent wine recommendations and were very flexible, for example, by changing our dessert option. The food was expensive but reasonable for what you get. We left well-fed but not feeling overly stuffed as is sometimes the problem with these menus. This is a must try for anyone wanting fine dining

We had our 10 month old with is and they made sure not to make us feel out of place with the only baby in the restaurant. Of course, the food was fantastic an the service wonderful as usual. Thank you very much!

    My girlfriend and I came for a Friday lunch and both had the 5 course tasting menu in the main dining room. We enjoyed the lobster and fish courses but thought the duck was the best! I had a few glasses of wine with lunch which our waiter helpfully recommended. For dessert they brought an extra chocolate cake which was very kind. The only critical comment I would make is that the dress code is certainly not enforced. I saw a guy wearing shorts and running shoes at one table and a woman in jean shorts in another. If the reservation department calls in advance to remind you of the "business casual" dress code they should probably enforce it. Nevertheless, all in all a solid experience for a nice occasion. Will be back for sure.

    There is always something new on the menu and I have never been disappointed. The tasting menu gives you great flavors and textures at each course. They obviously care about the quality of the ingredients they use because you can see how the menu changes to accommodate what is in season at the time.

    As I have for many years, I had a birthday lunch at Gramercy Tavern. When they confirmed the reservation they asked if I were celebrating a birthday. I said I was, but had recently had a death in my family so I did not need any accommodation; I was not celebrating. However my lunch guest told the waiter something entirely different, and I was given a very nice birthday dessert (in addition to my usual cheese plate.) The food and service were wonderful, as usual, and my out-of-town guest was suitably impressed and requested to join me for my birthday next year as well.

    We are not hicks. We are from Boston and enjoy all types of food and fine dining. We were looking for something special on our 30th wedding anniversary and we found it. They asked in advance if it was an occasion - as a result we were treated to Proseco before dinner and a wonderful extra dessert (layered coconut cake with Happy 30th written on the plate. We chose the tasting menu. Each of the 6 courses was wonderful. Lobster salad, duck breast, haddock, squid ink spaghetti. Portions were appropriately modest given the number of them. Just might go back there before our 50th Anniversary.

    What a perfect place to celebrate a wedding anniversary! That's what my wife and I did. But Gramercy Tavern would be perfect for any occasion. The service was outstanding -- friendly and knowledgeable -- and the food was even better. We selected the tasting menu, which was something to remember. I'm still talking about the carrot juice with citrus froth and my wife is still talking about the duck. Oh, our server helped us pick the perfect bottle of wine ... really amazing!!! Give Gramercy Tavern a visit; I'm sure you'll have an evening to remember!!!

    My family had prix fix dinner at Gramercy Tavern. The food & service were great! Each course was as good or better than the last. From the complimentary starter to the complimentary finish everything was perfect (well maybe the desert was weird - apricot something). But it did not matter, all before it was too good.

    I took my family of six to Gramercy Tavern for lunch while in NYC this past month. I had a reservation. Because my family had split up for the morning activities, we didn't all arrive ON TIME for our reservation. The hostesses where wonderful. They sat us without the complete party. We had a glass of wine while waiting. The food was incredible! Everything we ordered was outstanding. This was our favorite restaurant of our trip.

    Entres were superb....chilled corn soup and pasta based dish. That's where it ends. Main course..fish bland with very odd accompaniments, i.e. tomato! Not asked cooking preference and pork unedible as so rare and chewy. Pork needs a sweet accompaniment and again, they didn't mesh well.. It is as if the chef is trying too hard and gathering ill fitting collection to 'make the dish' ultra a la cart! Dessert again...over kill. Why not keep it simple. Was like a pub creation. Service was sadly a little slow.. Our mistake as should have chosen the bistro. We didn't complain then.... For a $300 evening for 2.... We just laughed our way home. Sorry so harsh but really and truly....this restaurant was highly recommended and it made me very sad.

    I head to New York several times a year, leaving behind the food heaven of San Francisco. I always eat at Grammercy and have always had a great meal. My last visit was memorable for the quinoa muffins offered to me when my excellent server learned of my wheat allergy; rather than being the usual inadequate substitute they were actually tastier than their bread.

    This is my third time eating at Gramercy Tavern. The food, obviously, is delicious. The flavor combinations are exciting, and the tasting menu does not leaving you feeling hungry as it does at some other places. I will say though that for me, the thing that makes Gramercy Tavern so special is that the very, very good food is elevated by the incredible service. The service is attentive without ever being suffocating, and watching the servers is like watching well-trained dancers. In addition, they really know how to go slightly out of their way to make your meal over-the-top special.

    We celebrated our Anniversary here and it was...AMAZING. They started us off with a little bit of sparkling wine just to congratulate us and then the beautiful food and flawless service that they're known for helped us have a perfect anniversary dinner. We ordered the seasonal prix fixe as usual. We've come to Gramercy for every season just to taste all the different menus and this summer menu was really fresh and delicious. They noted that I'm allergic to chocolate and alcohol and really worked around my food allergies. At the end of our meal, we were given a beautiful little coconut and meringue cake for our anniversary. My boyfriend loved it and kept saying how much it reminded him of a mexican wedding cake and home. love.
