 (New York Area)·Dined on February 14, 2018

Came into the city to see Lion King, the food was disappointing we did the prefix menu (duck croquettes, pork shank, butternut squash/ ginger soup and salmon). The skin on the salmon was pure charcoal which ruined the first bite of my fish. I do not like to complain so I cut off the skin and put it aside. The rest of the fish was flavored well. As a whole I was not impressed by the restaurant. The waiter did ask us if we were seeing a show to make sure our food came out promptly but he would disappear when we needed drink refills. I liked the soup but it was luke warm.

Pre-theater lunch. We loved it. Companions had lamb bolognaise and I had shrimp ceviche, which was one of the best I've had, and tuna nicoise. The tuna was rare and warm and the salad nicely dressed. The meal fit right into my Weight Watchers program. Our wait staff was attentive and courteous. It wasn't crowded so hard to tell if it would be noisy.

Good spot for pre-theater dinner. This was the third time we've eaten there; however, this is the only time we considered the food to be merely 'mediocre'. To their credit, they did take the price of our two desserts off the bill once we stated our displeasure to our server. Another gentleman came over immediately to offer another dessert or taking it off the bill.
One of us had an appetizer of seared sesame tuna, which he said was delicious! However, he thought the price of $18 for four small pieces was a little high. (But hey, its NYC). I had an appetizer of crabcakes which was 'okay' but a little dry. I asked for and received extra sauce on the side for it.
Service was very good - personable, efficient and accommodating.
We will return again and hopefully we will be as satisfied as we've been previously..

I've been to The Glass House Tavern a few times for pre theater dinners and once for brunch. The food is wonderful and the portions are just the right size. I would definitely come back and would recommend it to others.

Enjoyed a pre-theater brunch at The Glass House.
The menu was very varied offering everything from eggs to salads to sandwiches and more. The portions were generous, food was cooked as requested. Any mistakes made by the wait staff were quickly corrected. Kudos for the delicious French fries which are sprinkled with rosemary, a nice surprise and a yummy touch.
As this restaurant consists of many floors accessible by stairs only. we were very appreciative that the Restaurant staff was very responsive to our needs for a table that could accommodate a person with a disability. There are several tables in bar area which is almost street level and does have a wheelchair lift.

I showed up at the last minute trying to eat prior to curtain time - the busiest time of day for a restaurant in the theater district. They were so accommodating and friendly. They managed to get me well fed and feel well taken care of in plenty of time to make it to the show. My hat is off to them and i will be back.

My wife and I dined at Glass House after seeing Waitress at a matinee. The restaurant is conveniently located two doors from thr theater. The service was excellent. We dined from the thater week menu. There were sveral choices for a three course meal. The meals that my wife and I chose were well prepared and delicious. I would recommend this restaurant especially for pre or post theater.

Enjoyed a delicious brunch with friends before a show. Arrived a bit early, restaurant was not officially open yet, but was graciously greeted and seated. Our waiter came over and apologized that they weren’t open but gave us our menus to peruse. Came by a few minutes later to let us know the specials and take our drink order.
Everything we had we had was very well cooked, including the desserts and coffee. My eggs were perfectly poached on my Benedict and the steak for the steak and eggs was cooked exactly as asked by my friends. My husbands burger was also cooked as asked and he loved the rosemary fries.
Great little place right in the heart of the theater district.

We went to Glass House Tavern before the theater. The food was delicious. Two of us had the pork shank and two of us had the salmon. Both dishes were fabulous. The meat fell off the bone. Everyone was raving about it. We enjoyed our salad which had the perfect amount of dressing. One of our party had the risotto for an appetizer which he enjoyed. The desserts were yummy. I personally had the chocolate cake and my husband had the bread pudding. This will our go-to restaurant when I visit the theater. Service was friendly and efficient. I would recommend highly.

The food was good, the ambiance was good. I've dined at Glass House before and decided to go back for Sunday brunch. This time the service was terrible. We had an 11:15 reservation, were seated promptly and the restaurant was not busy. We put our order in and it took about 30 minutes before our food arrived. It was so bad we asked for and paid the check before we received our dessert !!! It was hard to tell if the kitchen was slow or the wait staff was overwhelmed. The wait staff was pleasant and apologetic it just took way to long to get our food.

A friend and I went for dinner after The Band's Visit (brilliant) and ate on the second floor. It was Restaurant Week and downstairs, with the bar area, was packed and noisy. Upstairs, peaceful and quiet. Heaven in the middle of the theater district. We ordered off the Restaurant week menu: organic green salad (huge and good); the Pork shanks (huge and good) and the warm chocolate cake with some ice cream (delicious). We didn't drink and our bill with a 20% tip was under $100. For a good dinner and great service, I was thrilled. If the food had been great, I would have been utterly knocked out but all in all, I am returning.
