Not a great evening, I explain. Very good service, very nice and personable waitress however:

Calamari were not crispy, soggy and quite tasteless, steak was huge and tasty but with loads of nerves and fat, very decent chips with it, Cornish hen average and drenched in a white gloopy sauce, not very tasty - heritage carrots were real hard, fish and chips was very average and the chunky chips were not fully cooked - in summary- very poor

We dined here at 5pm before a show. We had the sweetest, most genuine server, Richard. Our hostess was also incredibly kind. We ordered calamari, filet mignon, steak frites, and the peanut butter s'mores for dessert. Everything we ordered was cooked and seasoned perfectly. We will definitely be back.

the place is showing its age . looks the same as it did 15 years ago . in a bad way . many choices on menu , that could be good an bad . most excellent resturants don't have 30 - 40 choices .quality not quantity makes it . unless your mcdonalds if they have less . the food would be better .the server just was not into being a server . I get it . but that is what you do . example . when a steak frites comes with a mountain of french fries . everyone should know the person eating that meal may want an need ketchup ! instead of me tracking down a bus boy to go get it . price are high . the rent in park .

While I love the Bryant Park Grill and it does have nice ambiance, good service and is a cool place to go for a drink, the food, however, just isn’t that great. Wish I could be more enthusiastic but everything our group of 5 ordered was just so so.

was so excited to finally visit this restaurant after walking past it hundreds of times. Staff was lovely but the food was disappointing. My chicken dish looked like it was left over from a banquet that was held earlier that day. Not cheap and not worth a 2nd visit.

Our family had an excellent time here this past Sunday. Our waiter (I'm so sorry, I forgot his name) was very attentive. We even asked for something that our young (7 years old) daughter didn't like to be sent back and replaced, and the kitchen did so quickly. Thank you!

Always a good staple for a good experience. Service is excellent, food is very good cost is higher than it should be, but the venue is partially why. If you go ask to not be seated by a large party as that's when the noise becomes too much to carry on normal conversation.

Beautiful setting in Bryant Park and a beautiful room. We were shown to a table by the window which was lovely. The table was nicely spaced & the chairs were comfortable. We ordered the grilled pork chops and the grilled chicken pillared. Literally 10 minutes later the food was served. It had been pre-cooked and then warmed up (somewhat) so dried out & tough. I am shocked that the kitchen is turning out this type of food at those prices.

Pre-show brunch, seated in the Atrium on a cold, dank day but it was bright and warm inside this tented area. I had the Artisinal sausage trio brunch special and my wife had the Mediterranean breakfast. We ordered the basket of breads as well. My meal was just okay but my wife loved hers. And the bread basket was beyond good. Coffee wasn't very hot and we had to asked multiple times for refills. Service was just good not great. They apologized for ignoring us though so that's something.

Pretheater dinner - took a chance and loved it - great waiter. Also, we were seated before full party was there - very nice since I had had foot surgery and that was not the reason.
Previously there for Brunch and also great.
