Only cause it’s a part of NY history. The choice of food options weren’t appealing.
A great way to end our morning of sightseeing at the Statue of Liberty!
My favorite spot to bring out-of-town friends and family visiting NYC. Incredible history that is matched with incredible service. Be sure to arrive early enough to enjoy a wee dram (or two) at The Single Whiskey Bar before dinner. Kevin is a first-rate Mixologist and Whiskey oracle.
Ordinary pub food, try sitting four people in an oak pew, scooting to table. Could have been so much more in this historic tavern.
It’s a beautiful old tavern. Great selection of beer and spirits. Great music played in the pub. Food was very good. A wide selection on the menu. Service was decidedly slow and insufficient.
Always great food and overall cool spot. My wife’s favorite restaurant.
Loved everything about this place! We loved the variety of drinks, food, and places to enjoy it. We explored the entire venue and we were amazed at all of the different places one could enjoy a drink or a bite. We were in the back dinning room. It was nice and quiet for our family dinner. My husband and I plan on going back to try out the other areas. I had the chicken main and it was probably one of my favourite meals I’ve had in that area of NYC for quite some time. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a bit of history mixed with a whole lot of fun!
I TOOK A CLIENT TO LUNCH. THE food was not good. when my client was not happy with her
BISON BURGER THE WAITRESS told us she could not do anything and accommodate us. I insisted the client order something else and the waitress charged us for another meal. very rude and not appropriate. I would never use this venue for a business meeting again. we sat in the back. the food was overpriced, average and the service was horrible. had to track down waitress to fill drink order and bring us bread.
very disappointing. when we got there after having a reservation that said do you want drinks and apps? we were like NO LUNCH. VERY ODD.
my associate and I spent over 200 dollars for the three of us. it really was a horrible they would not take my client's burger bck and charged us. she still got a tip too. terrible shame on you
The historic surroundings are reason enough to travel downtown to Fraunces Tavern. If you are a whiskey drinker, this is your place! Basic reliable menu. Decent fish and chips, both frozen. Museum upstairs.
This was a disappointing experience. I wanted to like this place. It's historic and I always need a restaurant in financial district to take family to when they're in town. But overall the experience was poor. Right as soon as we sat down the server told us that the kitchen was at capacity and would be slow but she would try to make our experience positive regardless. Just as a side note there were about 10 empty tables in the room. When the server took our order she didn't ask us for a drink order and we had to flag her down after because she ran away immediately. Then she told us they were out of ALL their beers... which I wish they had told us to begin with. Then I asked about non alcoholic drinks they could offer me because I'm pregnant and the server flat out told me there was nothing they could offer that didn't have a little bit of alcohol. I asked about Ginger beer and she said it had alcohol in it (which I'm pretty sure isn't true) but work with me here...there's a bar that I'm sure has mixers. Then the server brought every other table bread with apple butter and did not bring us any. We asked for it and she never brought it. Then my husband ordered a second drink that never came. The food was good when it finally came. But we were never offered a dessert menu which I think I would have ordered off of (again.. pregnant). And my husband's second drink was finally checked in on before we were going to leave anyway. Overall I think the servers were NOT trying to compensate for a supposably busy night and not trying very hard to make the experience a good one.
Generally speaking, it was eh. Food was fine, but nothing to write home about. Service was mediocre. Waitress never checked on us after taking order (and they told us ahead of time that it would be a 30 minute wait for food - you would think they would check at least once to see if we wanted more bread or a refill on drinks). Also, menu online is misleading. There are a number of options on the online menu on their website that, when we tried to order, we were told could only be ordered in the "tavern" section and not the main dining room. If that's the case, write that on your website before we schlep down to Battery Park.
We sat in the "back" section of the restaurant where there was zero background music so on one side it was helpful to hold conversations it also created no ambiance at all. The server who initially took our order never came back....at all. We then had the server from the table next to us who was more responsive to our timing. For the prices charged for meals, we were very disappointed in the service.
Wonderful music in the bar area. Ambience was excellent! Such a great place.
Great historical ambiance! Very cool! Very nice menu with a variety of options including vegan. Service and food was very good. Well worth a visit
The dining room did not seem ready for guests at 11:15am even though it accepted a reservation for this time. It took 30 minutes for a cappuccino to arrive. The staff said that the machine took a long time to heat up. When it finally arrived, it was barely warm and tasted bitter, one of the worst cappuccinos I’ve tasted and I left half behind. Our food took 45 minutes to arrive. I ordered the eggs Florentine which arrived at barely room temperature. The eggs were overcooked and I felt like I was eating hard boiled eggs on spinach. I did not like the heavy dill flavor of the hollandaise sauce which does not typically feature this herb; it would have been nice for the menu to have indicated this so that I could have avoided the dish. The only reason I did not give the food one star was because my father thought the hamburger was ok and my mother enjoyed the chicken pot pie which, miraculously arrived hot when the rest of our food was room temperature. I hope you can use some of this feedback to improve the experience of your other guests. I am a resident of NYC and do not intend to return based on this experience. It is a shame because this historic tavern could provide such a wonderful dining experience and a more special menu the reflects its history.
The history and the ambiance make this a worthwhile stop if you are in lower Manhattan.
The staff was ready for our arrival, and we were seated immediately. The server was attentive and responsive without being overbearing. The food was very good, although the French Onion soup seemed a little lacking in flavor.
overall, our experience in this historic establishment was wonderful!
Perfect biz lunch spot
We loved the old world charm and history!
One of the highlights of my son’s and my NYC visit! Really worth taking time to make this happen! There is also a museum above the tavern. Open table made it happen!
Food, bar, ambiance... all around great experience!
The museum and the history make the Tavern a "must visit" place for anyone interested in American history.
It's a place you visit once if you're interested in a restaurant in this historic area of town. Kind of touristy. I took family from Europe. But the food, while pricy, was merely OK. Service slow. But glad to share a bit of early American ambience with my family on their first trip to NYC. We had a great time. Great strudel!
Go for the ambiance, history, comfortable dining room, and the food. Our waitress got our order wrong on every course! Still, we'll go back and enjoy the place, and be more careful about the service (have the wait staff read it back to you). My husband had oysters and strip steak, I had the pate appetizer and the chicken pot pie. Our dessert order never came, but it is probably delicious. Next time!
We got our table right away with our reservation. Fast, friendly and very efficient service. Our server even explained some of the history of Fraunces Tavern to my visiting friends from the Pacific Northwest. Delicious food and the beer were awesome. We had fish and chips, chicken pot pie.
Historic charm with a modern menu! Love the history of these dining rooms and how they update the offering to be seasonally appropriate. They even had a German Oktoberfest menu when we visited!
Had a terrible experience.
My wife, children and I went for lunch. My wife ordered Buffalo chicken strips on her salad -- it was raw. Not sort of cooked, but raw. I suppose accidents happen (but is it ever acceptable when its chicken?!) but its how the restaurant handled the situation that made me write this review.
The manager could not be bothered to come out to apologize or try to make it right. The waiter offered us a free coffee. At the end of the meal, the chicken was taken off the bill (obviously, right?) but nothing else offered.
I ended up asking to talk to the manager as I was very unsatisfied with how this was handled. The first thing said was that she wasn't the manager -- just the team leader and that she comped us the chicken (was it even a consideration that we would have to pay for the chicken?!). Given their response, I told them I would be writing a review as it was the only thing I could do -- they couldn't have cared less.
Wife left hungry, I left angry, and it sort of ruined the afternoon.
Amazing combination of history and good eats in a comfortable but elegant tavern. I wish the entrance had been slightly more informational about the options for the museum as well as the tavern, but overall great brunch and lunch environment.
My wife & I had a great time. We took the ferry from Rockaway and the brunch made the day.
Loved soaking in the history. Had chicken pot pie and fish and chips. Very good. Great service.
Great historical environment and the best chicken pot pie
I was a BIG fan of this place. Raved about it, considered going back alone for the salmon. Told my dad about it for months. Finally I got to take him when he was in town, so I made a reservation a week ahead of time. We showed up and there was not a table available for two in the dining room, and they asked if they could seat us in the bar. I asked if the menu was the same, and it was, so I figured whatever, it’s fine. IT was NOT fine. We waited over an hour for our meal and it was cold and gross. The service was awful and we were clearly forgotten about, whereas my previous experience in your dining room was amazing service. I’ll sadly think twice before coming back and just wanted you to know.
Visit for the reputation, stay for the experience! Great food and ambiance! Enjoyed a wonderful relaxing lunch and then visited the museum.. Would definitely return!
Went for the history and loved the building. Food was ok. Service was terrible. Took almost 45 minutes for brunch food to be tabled. Then the order was wrong. It put us in a rush. I’d go just for a drink if downtown. Great looking bar.
We went to Fraunces Tavern after seeing Hamilton on Broadway because we loved the historical relevance, but we were so very pleased with the entire experience! The food choices were interesting and unique, and we loved everything we ordered. Service was excellent, the pace was perfect, everyone was warm and friendly. I hope to return again someday and explore the museum!
Cute. Quaint has an old historic vibe. Service was very good and nice. Food was ok. I would definitely go back
I liked the ambiance of the restaurant. The menu was varied and the service was excellent.
Enjoyed a wonderful lunch with a colleague. Too bad we did not have time to take a look in the museum. Hopefully next time.
Had lunch here with a friend. We both had the chicken pot pie which was delicious, Lots of chicken and vegetables with a light pastry. Then we had the apple strudel with ice cream. I felt they could have given you a bigger scoop of ice cream for 13.00. The strudel was good! It's unique that you are eating in a tavern that George Washington was a part of!
Such a nice brunch
