Fraunces Tavern Ratings and Reviews
The historic location was great, and the ambience had a real tavern feel. It was cold inside the restaurant as the door kept opening. The food was "okay" and not very warm. I can see how the back rooms (the bar area) would be a lot of fun, but the front room wasn't as cozy as I would have liked. We did enjoy the museum upstairs.
Everything at the restaurant was amazing except for the waiters. Maybe it's because we had a shift change, but we told our many waiters 4 times that one of our party needed a sprite before it arrived. All of our mixed drinks arrived long before his drink showed up.
I love this restaurant and the history too. I love the fact that General George Washington eat at this restaurant. It’s such a beautiful building and I also love the museum. My boyfriend and I went this restaurant because we were attending the “Washington Farewell Address” in the Museum.
We were on a girls trip to see Hamilton and decided to eat here after the matinee due to its significance in history. The food was great and service was wonderful. The menu was varied but mostly comfort food with some upscale choices. We were pleased!!! I also left a bag there and didn't realize it for 3 hours or so. When I called, they had it and kept it for me until the next day. THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!
It is always a pleasure to introduce friends and family to Fraunces Tavern. Steeped in history. Part of the pleasure is also discovering all the different dinning rooms, each with its own character. Food and service are wonderful. It should be a must for anyone visiting the Financial District, or even coming off the Ellis Island/Statue of Liberty ferries.
We celebrated my mom's becoming US citizen at Fraunces Tavern. The ambiance was outstanding. The service was great - fast and efficient while also very personable. The food was hearty, likely better for non-vegetarians. The selection is somewhat limited for vegetarians but the salad was very fresh. The special status of Fraunces Tavern however makes the food less important. The setting is definitely more interesting and just walking around the restaurant was fun! The waiter also gave us 4 passes to the museum, which was very nice of her. The museum is definitely worth visiting - it feels unreal to think that in the same building George Washington frequently dined and Alexander Hamilton had his office!
First time in NYC & had a family Thanksgiving meal here. Very well looked after. Reasonably priced and very tasty well presented 3 course set meal in a relaxed and atmospheric setting. A historical tucked away gem surrounded by skyscrapers just off Wall Street. Drinks prices not the cheapest with quite an expensive tab at the end though.
Fraunce’s Tavern is one of those old institutions that is conveniently located in lower Manhattan and is a wonderfully warme rustic experience. The museum portion was not open on this busy thanksgiving day. But was the perfect place to take family while visiting my old home town. Service was better than most restaurants even though they were probably going to do five or six seatings.. and although it was in the restaurant’s interest to get us through our meal for the next seating, in no way did we feel rushed.
Thank you Fraunce’s Tavern
We went for thanksgiving. The ambiance was nice and what we expected. All of us ordered traditional thanksgiving meal. It was mediocre. Two of us had to send it back because the turkey and potatoes were barely warm. The spiked apple cider was excellent and desserts were pretty good.
Historic building with colonial interior in the midst of modern Wall Street buildings. We entered after walking the windy streets. It was cozy, warm and welcoming with real candle lit lanterns glowing on the deep window sills, wide oak board floors and oak paneling surrounding the fireplaces and throughout the dining room. You could envision yourself back in the 1770's! Extensive lists of liquors and beers. Excellent salmon and roast chicken dishes with simple presentation. Friendly staff. Casual and relaxing.
I met some friends for lunch at Fraunces Tavern and was extremely happy with both the food and the service. I had the Bison burger and my friends had the rib-eye steak sandwich and the Cobb Salad. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal and my friend declared the Cobb Salad the best she had ever had. Service was attentive and friendly and we were not rushed at all even though we stayed for quite a while. I will definitely visit there again.
Wonderful place for lunch. So very comfortable with authentically historical feel. The museum upstairs is also very interesting if you're at all interested in Revolutionary War period, and George Washington in particular.
Would definitely go again on next visit to NYC.
