Delicious food. Friendly servers. Great historical backdrop.
Nice and quiet restaurant for business meeting.
Took my daughter for her 13th birthday. She just loves this place as she loves history. Good and service is always amazing. Drinks are good and strong.
Wonderful service, pre fixe brunch with mimosas was delicious and a fantastic value.
The description on their website and the actual tavern are completely different. The food was adequate, the drinks (if they were available) was poor, hardly anyone in the dinning are (only two) and when I asked if we could dine earlier than our reservation (7:15), the hostess acted as if it was an huge inconvenience. We only stayed for a partial drink and cheese. If you are thinking this is a casual tavern, it is not.
Great drinks, great food, great service
Had brunch with my boyfriend and parents in a quieter side of the restaurant and it was awesome! We split a bunch of appetizers including the chorizo flatbread, goat cheese salad, chicken liver pate, and pintxos. They were sooooooo good!
We also stopped past the whiskey bar and museum after, and it made for a lovely experience for my parents that were visiting from out of town!
My husband has a theory that you should only order what a restaurant does best. So what did I order at this "Contemporary American" restaurant (which was actually better described by our excellent server as "American with some Irish")? No, not the filet mignon served on a hot stone (which my husband said was fantastic) but the Lobster Pappardelle. He thought I was nuts, but quickly changed his mind upon sampling a taste. This dish is worthy of the best Italian restaurants in the city. Wonderful meal and highly recommended.
Always a must - nice to be back in the 18th century - wonderful service.
Beautiful, historic place. We had the seasonal goat cheese salad, which was delicious and perfectly-dressed, and the amazing chicken pot pie, which was actually much lighter than expected, and just crammed with perfectly cooked chicken. If you're looking for something special to eat, this is great. Cute little museum upstairs, too!
Went here for my birthday looking for a quiet spot. They have fine dining area & bar area. Both sides were amazing!! Quiet romantic ambiance with candle light & so historic! Fun bar side! Food was AMAZING. Cooked to perfection ! Loved every bite ! Thank you so much for making my dining experience special!
Good pub food and obviously a historic building, which made it an interesting place for a meal. The Tavern is cramped and loud, but the burgers were excellent and the setting is great if you are interested in history.
A very nice restaurant with a pub like feel. Pretty historic place too. We had a couple of very nice folks serving us.
Nice restaurant, good bar scene. Make a reservation if you want to eat in the bar area.
Great historic tavern with varied contemporary menu.
Went for lunch as it is close to Wall St., Trinity Church and the 911 Memorial.
Food was great - I got the beet salad which was served with candied walnuts that nicely balanced the Gorgonzola.
My husband got the rueben which was big and delicious.
There is also a museum in the building which for seniors is $4.00 and worth it to see some historic artifacts along with the room where Washington said his emotional goodbye to his troops at the close of the Revolution.
I had ordered salmon for my main and specified a temperature. It cam somewhat overcooked and I was dismayed that the server never checked back with me to ask if it was cooked to my liking. I thought the service could have been more attentive. My colleague did enjoy his chicken pot pie very much though.
okay for me
The ambiance and flavor of the place was nce. The food was great. We will most likely return there. Felt rushed because our table had a shift change. Others around us did not.
We went for lunch after a Statue of Liberty tour. It was the perfect place to learn a little history and enjoy some good food with four grandchildren and a daughter and her husband.
This was a good experience - the food was reasonably priced and was actually good for a kind of touristic place. The decor was interesting, and of course the museum is upstairs to see.
Plenty of colonial atmosphere here with well above average pub fare. Huge selection of whiskey. On a fun street a few blocks from Wall with many traditional pubs. Worth a crawl followed by dinner here.
The fish and chips were poor. The breading was thick and heavy and the fish was under cooked. The pot pie was delicious as always.
It was charming!
The main dining room (to the right of entrance) was quite chilly. I had to keep my coat on for the first part of the meal. Suggest period-type French doors to close off the cold from the front door but still see the dining room. Also suggest period costumes for waitstaff and music of the 1770's to make the experience complete. Furnishings and food were great as was the waitstaff!
This has been on my list of restaurants to get to for awhile. We really enjoyed our meal here. It is such a quaint, charging restaurant. The food was delicious and service very good. If you can get there to check out the museum upstairs, definitely do so.
We really enjoyed chatting with the bartender at the Dingle Whiskey Bar. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and absolutely charming.
Cheese platter was great along with a nice stout beer
Fantastic....probably the best meal I had while in NYC. One of our favourite places to visit!
Great simple food affordable in a really authentic decor the bar room is cool too!
We first thought about Fraunces Tavern because of the museum and when we realized it was still a working restaurant thought it would be nice to add that on for brunch. The food was very good and the atmosphere quaint and interesting . Added bonus is that if you eat there the museum is free. Museum was very interesting and nice way to learn a little history for an hour or so.
The food was great and the waiter was great! Definitely will be back!
Great source of wonderfully prepared comfort food - New England Style- in a warm and historic atmosphere
We were celebrating a dear friend’s birthday and her minor request to swap poached eggs for scrambled was messed up. It is all about the details.
It’s a fantastic historical place, it’s cozy and warm and new and festive at the same time, great place for any occasion.
My wife and enjoyed a memorable evening at Fraunces Tavern. I am a retired US History teacher and have satisfied my desire to visit the Tavern. We did not get to tour the museum, but definitely will on our return.
Thanks for the experience!!
Great atmosphere and service. Dining area dinner menu a little challenging if looking for staples...should have gone the pub side.... will be back
My sister and I both had Reuben sandwiches. The meat was so tough that it was difficult to bite though the sandwich. Usually Reubens are open-faced. This was a regular sandwich. Not good. The burgers the people on each side of us had looked great.
Mediocre food, even worse service. Very simply, you’re paying to be here. If you’re just going to drink beer, it’s probably fine.
We loved our visit to Fraunces Tavern. We were so excited to visit based on the history and the food was an added bonus, everything was delicious!
We have not been to Historic Fraunces Tavern in many years and the interior/ exterior still holds it's own plus the food and service were complimentary to the atmosphere. Open Table made this all very easyto reserve
