Once went to Glass House Tavern years ago and enjoyed it. Sat downstairs, and it was pleasant. This time, we sat upstairs, which they said was quiet. Int wasn't. Hard surfaces reflected every sound, and once a private party started behind a curtain and they started having fun, it was unbearable. Not attractive surroundings, either.

food: salad was generous and , my husband reported, good. My burrata with a salad also good. Seafood paella, on the other hand, was not. Shellfish had been cooked in advance and were dry. Fish was s out of overcooked, too. The sausages were cut so small that it was hard at first to determine what they were. We are not going back.

Our show ended earlier than we had expected so we went to the restaurant early and they were very accommodating and sat us right away. We were a party of 8 and everyone loved the food, the service
and I think you will have some return customers who were there for the first time. Some of us chose from the Pre-Fix menu and it was great and a good value. Always love this restaurant.

Finding quiet mature restaurants in theatre district is not always easy and the Glass House Tavern is a good find ....our server Rufara was a delight and made sure we left in time for our theatre performance.

Sat upstairs, very attentive service. Food was so-so: I had quiche which was undercooked. 2 other guests had cold shrimp salad, 1 liked it and the other did not.
We weren’t rushed which was nice. After ordering dessert, it took some time for it to arrive (pie and gelato) but both were excellent!

Glass House Tavern is our GO TO ... ALWAYS for going to the Theatre. Service is ALWAYS great and the food is ALWAYS and consistently wonderful. Is it the most creative and forward cuisine?... no... but it is always delicious, cooked perfectly, and never disappointing. Cant say enough about how consistently wonderful Glass House Tavern is.

My friend ordered the salmon and was very happy. I found the red snapper special disappointing. The fish was over-cooked with skin present on top. Vegetables were also over- cooked, and pineapple in sauce was distracting. The peach pie we shared was marvelous. Service was fine. Would not return.

My husband and I were visiting NYC and after doing a quick google search we thought we’d try The Glass House Tavern as it was close to the theatre. We loved it! They had a full gluten free menu with a variety of choices. Both our meals including desserts were fabulous! I got to have French fries and dessert, which is rare when you cannot eat gluten! The entire staff could not have been any nicer and more accommodating! Overall, it was a very satisfying experience and we will definitely be back the next time we’re in NYC!

The food was delicious, but it is a bit pricey for a nice meal. Very convenient location! We went after a show on Sunday and it was pretty empty.

THE FOOD WAS DISGUSTING. THE CHEF’s SALAD TASTED AND LOOKED AS THOUGH IT CAME FROM THE SALAD GARBAGE BIN. The icecream selection was limited to cinnamon, chocolate and strawberry. Chose strawberry which arrived with no garnish. Altogether a very disappointing experience. Previously visits had been a positive experience.

I took my daughter and her best friend for brunch before a matinee. This was a pre-birthday gift. Our waitress was amazing and on top of that, arranged for a warm piece of chocolate cake served with vanilla ice cream and a candle! Perfect experience!

We had a pre-theater dinner. Food was good and service was average. They gave us a very small table in the "casual" part of the dining area with 4 additional tables smack up against us. The more formal side of the restaurant was close to empty. Wine list is limited and they have a selection of 3 375ml bottles only.

We had time to kill and possibly spent some time there and ordered a full bottle of wine if we had a better table but decided to eat and get out of there. The positive takeaway is the food is decent and you are a 5 minute walk to Broadway.

An Excellent night out

Our last night in NYC we wanted a nice restaurant with wine, not fast food. This fit the bill. Surprisingly they only offer half bottles of wine but this worked out as we shared a half bottle of the $70 Stag's Leap Artemis we never would have had otherwise.

They offer the $42 prix fixe even when the theaters have started and it's great. Watermelon salad and sausage polenta for starters. I paid $9 more for my filet mignon which was excellent. The spaghetti seafood was too. Desserts were ok, with chocolate cake and bread pudding.

Service was a bit slow and we had to ask for water and bread but we were the only table in our quieter area. The bar is very noisy.

Pre theater dinner with 8 people. Everyone thanked me for picking this restaurant. Food was excellent, ambience was comfortable and elegant. Service could have been a tad better. People who ordered pix fix really didn’t have time for dessert.
But definitely going again and so are the other guests.

We reserved the Glass House Tavern for a pre show meal. The dining area was very chic and added to the ambiance. It was a quiet oasis away from the madness of Broadway. Food was equally good. Crab tempura then filet mignon cooked to perfection and perhaps the best meal we ate whilst in New York. Would definitely recommend.

Five family members ate pre-theater lunch yesterday, during restaurant week! One in our party was newly disabled. The management quickly adjusted our table and accommodated our party without a problem. Moreover, the food was outstanding, the service was friendly, professional and very timely. We simply had to walk around the corner for the theater, which topped it off. It started our day at the theater on the best foot! Can't rave enough...highly recommend!
