The New York Times says that Bryant Park has become one of Manhattans loveliest public spaces, that has open air Bryant Park Cafe for casual dining and Bryant Park Grill for serious meals.

My wife and I had a great time while celebrating our anniversary. We had a variety of selections for food that were reasonably priced. Additionally, our waiter surprised us with an anniversary dessert which was delicious. This is great place to dine in on for an occasion. We look forward to coming back in the spring/summer to sit on the deck outside.

Service was quite disappointing. Unfortunate since it is a great location and the ambiance is so inviting. It is a shame that restaurants at this level do not have trained staff to service patrons.

We were able to be seated earlier than our reservations, the show we saw ended earlier than expected. Our waiter was so polite and very friendly. The food was excellent and came out quickly too. The whole experience was fantastic. I’ve already recommended to friends and will definitely visit again.

The food is expensive, and I get it's New York, so that I can stomach. But there is no way that the bottles of wine should be priced as they are. You guys have to be making a ton of profit off of drinks/wine, and I think that is a little scummy. I know that the cost of living is different, but there were bottles of wine on that list that I have seen in Texas for under 15 dollars; there is no way that the amount of taxes you guys in NY pay for liquor could possibly end up making you price the wine that way. Just astounding. I mean, if it's your liquor taxes, then maybe...I don't know, call your state reps or something. My god, it's absurd.

The service was poor. I mistakenly thought that going to a nice restaurant near epic Bryant Park would be fabulous and the service would match. However, the server was not pleasant, we felt rushed and it was disappointing all around (in regards to service). We had an 8 o'clock reservation and arrived on time, or 5 minutes early. We were seated quickly and began our dining experience. But the server was so rude and off putting. Even when I asked for the bathroom, one of the servers did not even turn around to speak with me. Made me think that they did not like our presence. The hostess was great, and the food was good. But you interact with the servers more often then note and I was not pleased, personally.

We had a 6pm reservation and had hoped for a quieter atmosphere to catch up with our elderly friend. Quite loud inside even for our native New Yorker friend which was a bit disappointing. Food was good overall but pricey. My short ribs were not falling off the bone kind of tender which was what I was expecting. Decent wine list and attentive service. Just on the loud side.
