Permanently Closed - Betony, named after an herb in the mint family known for its healing qualities, is a Modern American restaurant overseen by Executive Chef Bryce Shuman (the former Executive Sous Chef of Eleven Madison Park) and General Manager Eamon Rockey (formerly of Eleven Madison Park, Atera, and Aska ).

Waited and waited for drinks. When my wife complained to the waiter, to his credit, the drinks arrived shortly thereafter. Beautiful setting, servers mildly friendly. Entrees excellent. Would certainly come again

Between the innovative cuisine and the insightful stewardship of Anthony Arvin, our meal was a brilliant end to one of the most unusual and creative places to dine in NYC. A memorable evening!

Betony was incredibly disappointing - overly contrived food that was tasteless, and service that was over-wrought. I am not surprised it closed.

So sad that this great place is closing; I had a most heavenly meal there this week.

One of my dishes (cauliflower) was undercooked. The kitchen made up for it as did the server and apologized many times. Some good dishes and unique dishes. neat space.

Impeccable dinner with first class service and amazing food! It's a shame that this place is closing. Every inch of the interior is decorated with unique decor and lighting, including the bathrooms. The four course meals for our party of three (which actually turns into a 6 course with the amuse-bouches) was perfect. Between the trio, we sampled a bit of almost everything. Standouts: labne app, lobster mid-course, prime rib main course, truffle tea amuse, pretzel dessert, milk punch with gin. Thanks for an amazing dinner and fantastic service... we will miss you!

I am so sad that Betony is closing. We had a fantastic meal, from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. The food was delicious, interesting, beautiful to look at on the plate. The service was impeccable. The room is lovely and we had what we thought was the best table in the corner. Altogether a meal I will never forget!
