Diner Reviews
  • "This is a nice find on CPS. As the hotel type restaurants, this is a fun place. Good energy and good food. Desserts could use some updating as they were pretty basic and not as tasty as they sounded. The bar is uusual and made a note to visit later in the evening sometime. Sevice was very attentive and polite. The decor is great very mod and appropriate which adds to a fund environment."

  • "The decor is tacky, the food is average, and the prices are sky high. South Gate can charge the way it does because it is right on Central Park, but the view doesn't make it worth the price of admission. I went for restaurant week and I still thought it was too expensive."

  • "Love the atmosphere, good location, very good food, delightful service, I bring people here that come in from out of town. It's relaxed and not "Fussy" but very pretty interiors, visually appealing, been here at least 5 times so far and recommend it to friends looking for a place that is not a "Scene" but delivers enough of the upscale "hip" experience without it being obnoxious and filled with wanna-bes......"

  • "We were staying at the JW Marriott and did not want to go out, so ate at their restaurant. It was restaurant week, so menu was a prix fixe. Food was good, though limited in choice. It was convenient. Service was acceptable. Room was attractive."

  • "South Gate should be a foodie heaven, but it's not. Went there with a colleague during restaurant week. But good for business, tables far apart. There are lots of great-sounding things, herbal this and heirloom that, but when push comes to shove, it was good, but overpriced (except during restaurant week). This is a hotel restaurant. It's convenient, and you can charge guests whatever you like. We had the prosciutto salad, which was terrific, the fluke sashimi (didn't know it was sashimi, but it was very tasty). The flank steak really wasn't too good. Meat a bit grisly, had to send it back because "rare" wasn't. Nice sauce and purple fingerling potatoes, but nothing to write home about. Tasty creme brulee, tarte tartin COLD!"

  • "Pretty much what you would expect from a restaurant in a hotel (JW Marriott Essex House) located right on Central Park. The space and the view are lovely, but the food and presentation are just average and at a high price point."

  • "The food was very good. The cocktail actually contained alcohol. Went during restaurant week for the first time, but will be back."

  • "We have been to this restaurant when Kerry Heffernan was chef. It was wonderful. Now, it's just a Marriott hotel restaurant with no personality or creativity. Food is average. If you are looking for quality cuisine, keep looking."

  • "My first gripe will seem silly: my wife and I had club soda instead of still water, and when the bill came that cost us 26 dollars. ($6.50 each). My wife then asked how much a bottle of Pellegrino is: $10. That they charge that strikes me as a symbol of what the place aspires to be: a place to detach visitors from as much money as possible, not a place that wants regular New York visitors. The service, with that point top of mind, was mediocre. We liked the food, but nothing struck us as extraordinary."

  • "Great surprise. We were tight on time and decided to eat at the hotel and made reservations at the South Gate. Great wine list and the food was terrific. Gem."

  • "Although the hotel was very nice, the restaurant really wasn't too good. The grilled romaine appetizer was good but the entries were entirely regular and not even close to being worth the price charged. The service was entirely average. The scallops were OK but a bit undercooked. They supposedly came with grits but the grits were barely even enough to call the a garnish."

  • "Food is fine - I had halibut which was great, but tried my husband's caesar salad and would definitely pass on that (he agreed). He had the pasta which wasn't very good either. Their cocktails are great, but don't order a cup of coffee! $9 for a cup of coffee is really ridiculous."

  • "What happened to the price fixe lunch menu? I was unpleasantly surprised to see it gone."

  • "We found the South gate Restaurant disappointing. The food was just ok, nothing special. What was special were the prices, which we expected in a hotel in NYC. What we did not expect was that the food would be average, especially at a Marriott Hotel. Still looking for that perfect spot in New York."

  • "This restaurant used to have a really lovely menu. the look is still beautiful but the food is not as good since Kerry left. and the decor is starting to seem a little worn. Feels like any other hotel restaurant now. Location/park still nice."
