Had a lovely time, was not rushed. Food was very good.
Might be better on a sunny spring afternoon but not really worth it for dinner. Went for a Friday dinner date with my wife after having HF an enjoyable business lunch a few month before (place was buzzing at lunch, bright with great views of the park). Arrived to find restaurant only 1/2 full and the furnishings seeming a bit tired. Service staff tried hard but just didn’t have The pizzazz of a special night out.
Caesar salad was small and had tomatoes in it? Chicken Palaird was passable (huge portion) but seemed like banquet food. Save yourself the trip or wait for a sunny business lunch or spring happy hour
Food was good but service could have been better. Brought our main course with appetizer course still on the table.
Great dining experience. Service was great. We weren’t rushed at all and neither did we have to wait long—-timing was perfect. Food was delicious and nicely presented. I had the branzini and it was great
Delicious! We had the monkfish and the cod and both were perfect. Our server was great and our table by the window was really a fun way to watch NYC go by. We'll definitely be comfortable by balc to Bryant Park Grill!
I have an annual meeting in NYC and I always take customers to Bryant Park Grill. Was really excited to see it on Open Table.
The food was great but it was a little loud!
Great food, great service, great time. Lifetime native New Yorker, first time customer. Will be back.
Excellent food and service - very accommodating to us with specific food requests. We stayed a fairly long time to complete business, and there were no requests to leave. Friendly service; great food - and a pleasure to be there! Janetk
Its a great location but thats where the greatness ends. Seemed like a lot of $ for food that was average and service that was poor.
always consistently good
The lunch was excellent. The service from the waiter staff was superb. What add to the dining experience is the ambience which is light and airy. Beautiful setting.
The restaurant itself is absolutely beautiful. The exterior of the building builds a feeling of class and elegance and the dim lighting and decor of the interior creates a sense of luxury. Unfortunately, it creates a sense of false hope when it comes to the food.
My girlfriend and I are nowhere near professional bloggers or food critics, but it doesn't take that level of entitlement to know when you are paying 5 star pricing for 3 star food.
My girlfriend is a very picky eater so the only app we could split would have been the bread trio, which coincidentally they were sold our of. So instead, we requested the bread basket as just something to nibble on before the meal. When we ordered the bread we also placed our dinner orders. Some how, our dinners came out before the bread.
She had ordered the lemon chicken and I had the Beef Short Rib. Again, we are not huge reviewers so bless her heart when she said her dinner was good. I tried a bight, and while the flavor was there, the chicken was overcooked, dry and maybe room temperature. 3 of my beef short ribs (the dish comes with 4 pieces) were incredible. Perfect texture and flavor. The 4th however, was dry and tough. The vegetables that came with the meal did not taste fresh at all and were warm at best. The side of couscous that also came with it was a mixture of bland and poorly seasoned. It seemed the flavors did not pair well with the rest of the dish. Additionally, when the bread did finally come, it was cold and seemed to not have been fresh. It was also served with hard, cold butter.
One saving grace of this place was the desert. We had the Chocolate Peanutbutter Smore and it was a breath of fresh air. The flavors were so rich that it actually completely uplifted our moods from our disappointing dinner.
To finish, the server we had was very nice but not to attentive to us. To be fair I never saw him stop moving, so his lack of attention may have been the result of understaffing.
On every visit to NYC we have dinner at Bryant Park Grill. It is such a beautiful setting with the view of the park. Great ambiance and the food is delicious. Great service too. So romantic!
Lovely setting for enjoyable meal. Vegan options delicious. Be sure to ask for the bread basket!
