  • "The service was great, the food was delicious, and of course, it's a New York legend."

  • "I have always wanted to go to Sardi's and I was not disappointed. I had a lovely lunch with my friends. Our salads were great and the accompanying bread was excellent!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "the food was good and the price especially for New York was reasonable. it was good. now that i have been there I never need to go again which is probably a lot of their business. If i am looking for a special night out there are a thousand other places to go. if i need a quick bite and i am next to it i might stop by again but i doubt it."

  • "We had dinner before going to the theater. We shared the sardi's special appetizer. Everything was great. I had cannelloni, delicious. My husband had surf and turf . A little small but delicious. Friends had crab cake, full of crab. Delicious. All in all, wonderful!"

  • "What a way to get into a theater mood. Sardis surrounds itself with autographed characatures of present and past actors. The food was delicious and served very quickly. They know their crowd. Overall a great night."

  • "It is a cool restaurant to see but it is expensive and food is not good. I had a $15 tomato and 2 slices of mozzarella. The wait staff was great- very professional. Cool building and history. The food needs work."

  • "Good food and service at a reasonable price. A classic that has stood the test of time."

  • "Sardi's is a great spot for supper after a broadway show. It is close to the theaters and easily walkable. Good food, good service, and good ambience"

  • "Food was tasteless and steak was raw. Waitress and creme brulee were the only saving grace."

  • "Our party of 4 was seated promptly (we had reservations) and we were out in time for our 7:30 show. The waiter came and took our order and then we did not see him again until he brought the check after I asked another waiter to get him. He did nothing for our meal. It was served and cleared by a bus boy. He never asked if we needed anything or how our meal was. We saw him at the beginning and at the end. Interesting! I left a minimum tip due to this. As for our meal, it was very good. The bread served was excellent also. I had the shrimp in garlic sauce which I enjoyed. This is a legendary restaurant. There are caricatures of famous people who have dined there, all around the walls."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "it's exactly what it's always been - a piece of history - pre-theater, do at least once - we do it occasionally - as they always get you out on time for the show. (it's the show before the show - you're not there for foodie food)"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "First time at Sardis and would definitely go back. Great menu selection and fast service before seeing a play!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Took our 20 year old Granddaughter to Sunday Brunch at the legendary "Sardi's". It lived up to its reputation. She was impressed and so were we. Haven't been here in over 20 years"

  • "Went to see Kinky Boots at a Wednesday Matinee and had a 5PM reservation at Sardi's. We were there at 4:30 which was not a problem and we were seated immediately. I had an endive salad which was mediocre, and the sea scallops special, which was good. My MIL had the Sardi shrimp with garlic sauce, which she gets every time we go there — it's her favorite and she loved it. The service was very good as it always is."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "My wife and I came into the city to see the Phantom. Selected Sardi's on its reputation and closeness to the Majestic Theatre. Had read reviews that said it was touristy and that staff was not customer friendly. Did not find that to be the case at all. We were seated in a corner with booth like seats with an enjoyable view of the dining area and the caricatures. Our waiters, Adam and Elvis, were friendly and attentive. We had the evening dinner specials, my wife the scallops and I had the salmon. Both of our meals were delicious. One of the ladies at the table next to us asked if I would recommend the salmon and based on my comments ordered it also and she was just as happy with it as I was. We enjoyed our time at Sardi's immensely."

  • "Had a lovely dinner with my daughter on our last night in NYC, before our last Broadway show. We had called ahead to say we might be a bit late because it had started POURING and we were told 'no worries, get here when you can'. From moment we entered the restaurant, The service was welcoming, attentive and fast without feeling rushed. I had a wonderful deconstructed seafood salad and delicious New York cheese case, an daughter had pasta bolognese. Food was delicious. It was fun checking out celebrity caricatures on the walla and waiter offered to take photo of us. Was a fun evening and will definitely return next time in NYC."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Sardi's is a NYC legend. Caricatures of all the famous patrons line the walls. The food and service are also legendary. They served the finest scallops I've every had in my life. The food for the rest of the family was equally great. Service was fast and friendly. Overall a great experience before a night at the theater."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "We are infrequent guests to the city, and decided to treat ourselves to a "late night dinner treat" with a bit of history in a restaurant we had only observed stories of over the years. The food and choices were wonderful, excellent service, and a formal, but friendly elegance."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "We dine here several times during the year and have always found it to be a great restaurant for excellent food and service and very convenient for pre-theatre dining. We have never had a bad mean or bad service at Sardi's and look forward to continued visits there in the future. The staff, from the person at the front desk to the bartenders upstairs to the wait staff couldn't be nicer. We are always greeted at the door and generally given a table that we like. I can't say enough about the venerable dining institution. I know it is no longer in the immediate Sardi family, but the service has remained the same as has the food. You can't go wrong here."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "It's always fun to go to Sardi's for people-watching and checking out the celebrity drawings on hanging all around. The food is consistently the same and the service always New Yorkie. We had a good time."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Sardi's remains an excellent spot near the theater district for dinner before the show. Service is excellent, food is great, if you make a reservation the table is always waiting, and if you don't have a reservation they will get you in anyway, and out in time for the show. I have brought visiting friends there for years, and Sardi's has never let me down."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The food was okay. Our server seemed rushed and was very inattentive. He forgot to offer bread. Only took two dessert orders. I had to stop him to tell him I wanted dessert also! There are ao many great places to eat in NYC; however this is not one if them."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "About the only things left of the "old" Sardi's are the wonderful celebrity caricatures. The food is mediocre at best and the service indifferent. We took out of town guests thinking it would be a treat to dine at such a well known landmark. What a disappointment. I would imagine, if not for tourists and the occasional opening night party, Sardi's would close its run. Very sad."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We have eaten at Sardi's before a show in the past. Once again, we were seated promptly and enjoyed a wonderful dinner. The food was good and the staff was friendly and helpful. We are from out of town and left our camera case at the table. The staff pulled our reservation, looked up our phone number and called to tell us they would ship it to our address. Many other restaurants would have thrown it away (or perhaps the staff might have kept the contents?) or would have charged to ship the item. We had already enjoyed our visit, but knowing this level of service will certainly make Sardi's high on our list again for future visits to NYC."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Did not think you would be able to make a reservation at late notice. Pleasantly surprised. Had a delicious pre-show lunch. Had the vegetarian curry dish and the Sardi's shrimp house special. Will visit again soon!"

  • "Lunch time was a bit more relaxed than dinner, but with the same excellent service and delightful menu."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "A visit to NYC is incomplete without a Sardi's reservation! It's a reminder of years and stars of the past and present. You could be seated next to any number of celebs. The menu is a cross section of wonderful!!!"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "We ate here b/c my husband has many fond memories of the place. Food was extremely expensive and rather bland, except for the gazpacho, which was suffering from an overly heavy hand with the garlic. There are so many better places for lunch for much less money. The service, as usual, was subtle and very very good. "
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "We have been to Sardi's many times even if we are not going to the theatre. It is one of our favorites and they have the best Steak Tartar in town!"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Sardi's is resting on its laurels. I expected the quality of food to be much better. It does not deserve a four star rating. Too many people, too many dishes to prepare, lousy tomatoes, poor quality filet mignon, overly warmed up, stale cannelloni. I wouldn't return. Tourist trap. "

  • "This restaurant was as expected. We booked at table for 3 on open table 2 days prior to our requested date. We arrived at 5:50 PM and needed to make a 7 pm broadway show on the next block. We were attended to and served promptly and even with appetizers and entrees we had the check paid by 6:45 PM. The food was as expected for quick service. It was good with decent portion sizes. The service was professional and our waiter was attentive, but not intrusive. I initially tried to get a reservations at Carmine's, but my time slot was not available. Open table suggested other restaurants in the area that had my time slot available. This is an excellent feature of the website."

  • "We were in NYC celebrating my daughter's high school graduation. We were seeing a matinee and an evening show so knew we would need dinner in between and made reservations for Sardi's because of location and reputation. We were not as dressed up as others in the restaurant (since we were doing a TON of walking) but they still treated us so well. They were super nice. The food was fantastic. The service was great. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who will be in the theatre district."
