We dined at 6pm prior to going to the theatre. The restaurant was surprisingly quiet. We enjoyed the prix fixe menu which was a surprisingly good value ($44) for a three course meal in the Theatre district.

Father daughter day in the city - brunch and a show. Many visits to NYC but our 1st time dining at the Glass House Tavern. Very conveniently located less than a block off of Times Square. Sat us promptly at our reservation time, with a nice window table on second floor. Staff (Vanessa and others) was attentive, pleasant and wonderful. Food was great - daughter had the pancakes with fruit and I had steak and eggs. Warm baked goods were fresh and hot! We dropped the pepper shaker and it was very quickly gathered and replaced. Didn’t feel rushed at all. I thought pricing was more than appropriate for the level of service and delicious food. So much better than going to the name restaurants in Times Square which are pricey and serve low grade food just because they are in Times Square. We will definitely be visiting this establishment again. Highly recommended.

Had early dinner on a Saturday nite which began pleasantly enough but it soon became very crowded and noisy. Also service very slow - had to ask for drinks etc. However, once the food arrived, it was very good - we had the apple/spinach salad, scallops, salmon and branzino.

Food that was ordered was very good. There is a problem with the insufficient selection. There is bacon in so many dishes, including the fish of the day that one of us would have ordered if it didn't have that.
The soup of the day had bacon. many other entrees had bacon. one of the salads had a type of ham.
In addition, one of us ( a group of three)is a vegetarian and there were insufficient options.
Also, pre-theater matinee there are no 12 PM reservations allowed . they insist on 11:30. That leaves way too much time to kill before the performance. 2 1/2 hours is way too much time before the theater. Theaters don't allow you in until 1/2 hour before curtain.

This was my second dining experience at the Glass House Tavern and I look forward to going back. The choices for lunch and dinner are good and the prix fix option for both meals brings real value to a lovely NYC setting. The salmon melts in your mouth and the open range chicken has a nice mushroom sauce to top it off. With all the choices to make in NYC, this one you can safely make and have a good experience.

As usual Glass House Tavern did not disappoint. When we go to the theatre we also go to GHT.
The food and ambiance are wonderful but what sets this restaurant apart and above other restaurants is
the wait staff. They are simply the best. Knowledgeable, professional, personable and friendly but not
annoying. Our server yesterday was just perfect and made our dining experience delightful.
Any other times we have dined at GHT our servers have been memorable adding to the great food.
We left feeling more than happy.

Had a reservation for post theatre meal. We were greeted quickly and seated promptly. Our server was the best! I wish I recalled his name. Very efficient and kind. We never felt rushed.
We opted to share several small plates and each was delicious and presented nicely. The fried calamari was tender and just lightly breaded which was perfect! The sesame encrusted tuna was sliced and barely seared as it should be. It was served on a bed of carrot and papaya noodles that were pretty and delicious! We also enjoyed the beet and goat cheese salad that was a wonderful mix of sweet from the beets and slightly tart from the balsamic dressing and creamy from the goat cheese. This was plated beautifully as well!
The Glass Tavern was a great find and I look forward to visiting again next time I’m in New York!
