A word from The Morgan Dining Room
The Morgan Dining Room's menu draws inspiration from early-twentieth-century New York City cuisine. Guests dine in the original Morgan family dining room, located in the restored nineteenth-century brownstone

Perfect for getting caught up with
an old fried you haven't seen in while, a business lunch or lunch with a few friends after going to the museum."

Lovely alternative to other
restaurants near Grand Central Station. The food was very good, the ambiance somewhat old world, quiet and mature. And a stealth introduction to the Morgan Library."

Despite slow, inattentive service
and a server pouring water on my cashmere scarf (and no apology), my friend and I enjoyed this classy salon style dining room. Despite the small room size and closely placed tables, you don't have to worry about overhearing loud conversations coming from adjacent tables. The room was nearly full, but no party was talking in typical irritating New York volume and tones. It seemed that this restaurant's regulars are classy, well-mannered intellects, and it was my first pleasant, elegant Sunday brunch experience in the city. Food was a surprise; it was extraordinarily delicious. It definitely worth a long wait. Furthermore, you will forgive absentminded serving staffs' manners and leave here with a big smile."

You can't beat the atmosphere in
the Morgan dining room. Food is average but a nice spot to stop and visit the museum."

The room was lovely and we had a
fine table next to the marble fireplace. However, the service was inattentive and pokey. Moreoever, the food was very ordinary. I ordered poached eggs. The first batch were virtually hard boiled. I brought this to the attention of the hostess (couldn't find our waiter) who promptly arranged for a new order. They were also hard boiled. For these prices, I expected a lot more."

This beautifully decorated former
private dining room of the Morgan family is a well-ordered luncheon venue with a small but select menu of delicious items ranging from soup and salad to hot entrees suitable for lunch or dinner. The wine list is good with a middle carafe selection between glass and bottle that is perfect for a museum visit luncheon."

Not enough separation between
tables. Charming room, but jam-packed with close encounters that don't encourage private or business conversation. I try to reserve one of the few separate more private tables. One of them which is near the fiireplace has the disadvantage of being too close to the open service door so that it is drafty for the person sitting in line with the door. Had the rissoto this time. Anticipated the soft blend charater of a rissoto. But there were lots of small pieces of vegatable and cheese pieces mixed in which overwhelmed the amount of the experience of a rissoto for me. I would suggest mixing either smaller chunks into it or less of them. How about a few more reasonably priced entree dishes on the lunch menu?"

We had a group of five people and
the venue was great. An easy place to find for people coming from different parts of the city. Service was a little slow but not bad, and food was terrific. A lovely lunch-brunch option to the hustle of other restaurants. Plus the museum is wonderful."

This is the original Morgan dining
room at the J.P. Morgan Library and Museum. The service is impeccable and elegant moderately priced prix fixed brunch and lunch are available."

The quiet, simple but elegant
setting made it easy to hear one another, while the food - from appetizer of salmon carpaccio, to the main dishes of risotto and broiled salmon - provided taste, visual appeal and "comfort" on a wicked cold day. Best of all were the desserts (butterscotch seems to be the dessert chef's favorite flavor) which positively dazzled."

Elegant and cozy, this spot is the
perfect place to have a relaxing brunch and cocktail before of after enjoying the exhibits at the Library. The food, ambience and service were top rate."

JP Morgan's own dining room! What
a treat! The menu is limited but the food is fine. However, the management is totally inept, the waiters not trained at all. Don't want to know your name, just don't pour water in my wine glass or drop the roll. The menu offers wines and dishes themed to the current exhibition (as many museum dining rooms do)--but they were out of the Raven wine (Poe exhibit) and apparently failed to communicate this to our waiter. How can you run out of your best-selling item? Also, when we left I forgot my scarf and fur hat. Went to the bookstore. When I realized it and went back, the items were on the floor. No one had cleared or noticed in 15 mins. Tsk-tsk. Understaffed. Good place to go, just don't expect much."

Wonderful haven for great food and
relaxation. Our server was delightful, food outstanding, and we will go back often."
Dined on 1/19/2014
Our waiter was friendly and
efficient; the wine, a Chianti, very drinkable; the main dish, a risotto with mushrooms, squash and brussels sprouts, was unusually good, the best restaurant risotto I can recall in a while."

I was looking forward to an
elegant dining experience but I was very disappointed for a number of reasons. One colleague arrived first and was seated at a low, lumpy banquette. There were many tables open so, she asked if we could have one with chairs. She was told that you needed a reservation for that. When I made the reservation there was no specification that I should request a table with chairs. We were never served bread although other diners received it. I asked for a side order and the waiter said he would check on it but never did. There was one table with chairs open the entire time we were there. All of this led me to believe that the Morgan dining room is not really geared to the public but rather to its own wealthy donors."

and friendly service. A great
place for brunch, or a special occasion. The crab cake topped with fried egg is special, and the frittatta was even better. The Morgan is a wonderful, open, beautifully designed building. The waitstaff throughout the Morgan are outstanding people."

The Morgan Dining Room is a lovely
setting for lunch with friends. Our waiter was very attentive - and even knew the subjects of the portraits that hang on the walls of the Dining Room. His service was unobtrusive and not at all rushed. I felt that my guest and I would have been welcome to stay and talk all afternoon had we wanted to. I dined on a Butternut Squash Risotto, which I would recommend highly."

Salad was supposed to have
arugula. We were the first diners at noon and they were out of arugula. Ordered the lentil soup which tasted like it was from a can. In years past, we have very much enjoyed the Morgan dining room. However, the menue left a lot to be desired."

The Morgan Dining Room's brunch
service is my favorite in NYC. The dining room is refined, quiet -- a nice respite from the noise and energy of midtown. The food is always delicious and reasonably pricing, the service is very good and you can enjoy the company of your tablemates without the buzz of others at their tables. Perfect way to get a slower paced weekend started, especially during the bustle of the holiday season. Will be back as often as I can be."

service makes it one of best museum restruants in city."

We enjoy eating brunch at The
Morgan before seeing an exhibit there (Morgan Library.) Most recently, once again, we were not disappointed. Eating there before viewing the collection is not only very convenient, it's a very civilized way to spend an afternoon in the city."

Lovely restaurant in a nice
setting. Very limited menu with inattentive service. Would not divide the bil as requested (in thirds) which was rather annoying!"

Well done venue.better than
average "museum" food. I would recommend. a couple of more choices on the menu."

Your ambience, service and food
did not justify your price."

What a lovely experience dining in
what was once Morgan's original dining room. The atmosphere is tranquil, the service is wonderful and the menu features a nice variety of meals. The brunch menu included Cinnamon French Toast (which I had), chicken salad, soup and much more. As for drinks, the menu offers plenty of options. The apple cider margarita was one of the best cocktails I've enjoyed. There were even new cocktails inspired by the recent Edgar Allan Poe exhibition. The menu changes slightly with the seasons. Great way to round up a morning spent perusing inspiring art! Cheers!"

An elegant dining space In JP
Morgan's old house gives a great atmosphere. Food is good, service attentive. A great place to bring your out of town visitors to show off a very stylish side of Manhattan."

The dining room is very pristine
with its white table cloths in the small, intimate setting. The brunch menu was wonderful, and my husband and I ordered from the prix fixe menus. I had the Maryland crab cake and he had the farmer's frittata. Both were excellent. Even the cream for the coffee was was warmed - you gotta love that. My only disappointed was with our waitress. She didn't seem to know what went with the prix fixe meal, and we had to ask for our mimosas, which should have been brought right away. Other than that little blip, I would highly recommend the Dining Room for a special brunch. It's the frosting on the cake of a visit to the Morgan Library."

The Dining Room at the JP Morgan
Library is a hidden gem - tucked inside the gorgeous museum/library. Lovely seasonal menu and cocktails!"
Dined on 10/22/2013
Very relaxed environment and what
makes it unique is that you get to eat where the J P Morgan family had their meals. Classic early 20th century decor, silent and with a reasonable price for an exclusive museum dinning. The brunch is not elaborate with all the sophistication of prized chefs but it is planned with creativity and different touches on the recipes adding a surprise to our palate. Third time that I have been there and did not regret."

Un cadre exceptionnel : davantage
une salle à manger privée qu'un restaurant. Le petit inconvénient : un peu bruyant quand la salle est pleine. Un accueuil très sympa et aimable. Beaucoup de gentillesse ( nous étions avec un bébé) Une cuisine exceptionnelle de justesse . La carte est courte mais les produits sont frais et remarquablement préparés."
