Went to Glass House Tavern for the first time. Went for lunch before theatre. We walked in and it was very crowded, but we were seated right away. They offered us a full menu as well as a pri

The Host at Glass House Tavern was wonderful! He made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Service was great and the food was delicious. It just became quite loud when it started to fill up.

Overall my dining experience was just ok. We wanted to do the prefixe pre-theater menu for the sake of time, but I could not due to dietary restrictions (I don't eat beef/pork),but the Waitress advised they could not remove the pork from the dish or even just plate the scallops alone. That was very annoying, so I opted to forego that menu and went with the special, grilled octopus...it was not good at all and I love grilled octopus, eat it all the time. This was very fatty and rubbery. My entree was supposed to be spicy, there was no spice at all. The zeppoli's were the only thing I enjoyed. I don't think I would ever eat there again.

Had lunch here before seeing waitress. Our reservation for 12 allowed us to have a great lunch prior to the show. Overall it was good. Our server was nice but a little anxious, maybe new. My friend had two mimosas spilled on her entire back and our server apologized. I thought it deserved more than that, perhaps a drink or lunch comped since she needed to spend the rest of the day, including seeing the show while drenched across her back with orange juice and champagne. I’m sure it wasn’t pleasant.

If you are going to a show make sure you give yourself more than 2 hrs for dinner. Service is slow, slow, slow. I frequently went to this restaurant in the past but I just can’t trust the service and having to gulp down my meal. This has occurred more than once. It is to bad because the food is usually tasty.

We had Sunday brunch at the Glass House Tavern. One of the guests in our party was late but our waiter was so accommodating. He was very attentive and was very friendly. Our mimosas and our brunch were all delicious. Great service, great food, great experience. I will be back.

The sausage terrine with tomato jam was outstanding! The pear "carpaccio," filet mignon, and warm chocolate cake with berries and vanilla gelato were very good. The noise level gets a bit high when the restaurant is full, but that's to be expected.

The prix fixe menu is an excellent value for Manhattan.

Glass House Tavern's location makes it exceptionally convenient for pre-theatre meals.

Reserve seats upstairs! Fabulous passion fruit sangria, but potent. All three entrees got good reviews; my pasta and ground lamb (really a portion for two) was exceptional. Lovely prix fixe w/good selection for reasonable price. Super convenient for theatre.

I was honestly surprised how bad the food and service was... wouldn't go back... food was salty and tasteless, the place was not busy at all, service was literally as if no one was there. Management was sitting down literally doing nothing.

This restaurant is an outstanding find! We had a party of six for brunch and were very comfortably accommodated, with impeccable service from the moment we walked through the door. It's located in the heart of the theater district and we were worried that it could be a tourist trap, but it was far from it! We will definitely return for dinner, as well, when taking in a show. It's now a top brunch choice, too.

Ever element of our late lunch was perfect - food , derive, ambience. From the moment we entered until we left, two hours later, It was as good as I had hoped, and better than expected. I’ll definitely be back!

I was thirlled to introduce a new young Broadway Theatre colleague to my favorite haunt. He promises to make it it his own. Best part of coming to the Glass House Tavern is the diversity of people and and the joy and revelerie that takes place around the bar. While you can stillhave a meeting dinner or lunch in the other sections of the resturant.
