Glass House Tavern is a neighborhood favorite of mine. The corn couscous alone is worth it. I have never ordered anything here that wasn't delicious and beautiful. And the service is friendly and attentive.

My hangar steak was terrific. Pieces of fish served seemed small--for the price. But Glass House Tavern in the THeater District is packed before Broadway shows. Active bar scene adds to the appeal of this restaurant.

We went here for the first time last Wednesday for the pre theater meal because we were seeing a play across the street. We were very impressed with the staff, especially our waiter. The food was delicious and the courses were perfectly paced. A great find!

As in my ratings, the food and service of the Glass House Tavern was exceptional. They had a delicious pre-theatre menu that was a great value, and the waiters were very attentive to us. We had a nice lunch and just a short walk to the theater. Highly recommend.

Everything was excellent. Requested a window table way in advance We were put way in the back by the fireplace. A very private place. My five year old was disappointed we were not seated by a window as this is where we always sit for our special occasions The children can look at all the people,passing and the theaters, which is what Broadway is all about. However another nice family memory.

We had a great lunch on a Saturday afternoon. There were very attentive to seating us on time. We were not going to a show so we weren't pressed to time but I could see that they were sensitive that some people may have that issue. We had the prefix brunch which was both delicious and a good value. The service was very good as well. This was my second time at the restaurant and my first experience was equally good. All in all a very positive experience. I am sure I will be back.

Our meal at Glass House Tavern was quite enjoyable. I enjoyed the house cocktail (pumpkin martini), and my husband's choice of the trout special was incredibly flavorful. My son's salmon over risotto was superb, as were the two appetizers (tomato/mozzarella salad & crab cake) I enjoyed as a main course. The only negative was the speed of a, I assume, new waitperson and her mishap with some glassware. Luckily we'd budgeted enough time before our 8:00pm show that we were able to enjoy the meal without fear of the extended time spent. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we will return to Glass House Tavern next time we're in New York.

Went for Thursday night pre-theater dinner at 5:30 prior to 7:00 pm show for Hamilton.

1. Prices are reasonable for Manhattan.
2. Good location , close to main theaters.
3. Service is adequate and earnest. Not easy to get everyone out by 6:40 or so pre-theater. I thought they could have used a few more waiters as it appeared the waiters had more tables to handle than would have been optimal.
4. We sat upstairs at a nice table. However, the chairs have been among the most uncomfortable I have ever sat on in my life; coupled with the fact that they are WAY too low for the height of the table !!!- ERGONOMICS MATTERS - as does comfort.
That alone would be reason enough for me not to ever return.
5. The food is ok...nothing more. Uninspired? Perhaps...but you are not going for fine dining; you are going for a fast , light meal before the theater so your stomach doesn't growl during the show, and you don't want to eat a heavy meal so you fall asleep.
7. Had a glass of wine with dinner; reasonable choice at reasonable prices.

I arrived on time, but my friends came by chartered bus and were delayed. (nearly half an hour.) I was able to be seated and wait for them. The wait staff couldn’t have been more accommodating & pleasant!!!
The food was great and they offer a fixed price meal for theater goers. All in all, it was a great experience. The restaurant also leads itself to host an intimate party on the second level. .

This was my 2nd time. My first visit was really wonderful which is why I picked it for last Sunday's special occasion. I was very disappointed. The service on my 2nd visit was terrible. They gave us the wrong food, we had to ask other staff to find our waitress numerous times, coffee came after the check and long after our desserts were finished.. and the restaurant wasn't overly crowded so there was no apparent reason for the bad service. I'm not sure how quickly I will be to go again, which is a shame since my first visit was completely different.

Quiet when we were there, though I've heard it can be loud before shows. Food was fantastic. Great hit with the whole family. Surprised it was relatively empty on a Saturday night, though we arrived after the shows had started, so perhaps many patrons had left by then. Service was a bit slow, which was surprising given that it was relatively empty, but we were fine with the pace.

Had pre fixe dinner before seeing Springsteen on Broadway. The menu for this was very nice.
Was very quiet but we had an early reservation due to show. Really filled in.
We both had the same meal consisting of organic greens salad which was delicious & a nice sized portion. The salmon was exceptional with the couscous blend & the panna cotta was yummy too!
Good cocktails and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience!

We chose the Glass House Tavern for the good reviews and proximity to Broadway theatres.
It was our first visit (pre Theatre) and arrived towards the end of the lunch seating. Our table was on second floor with window view of all the action on the street. We pretty much had the place to ourselves and so the noise level was low for conversation. Our server was attentive and personable. I went with the lunch pre-fix menu and my spouse went with the ala carte menu. The food was delicious. Only minor complaint was the scallop appetizer (while delicious), it was just 1 single scallop on the dish! Wished our server had let us know... But our server was right on with a dessert recomendation. Yummy!

We've dined at the GHT over the years since it opened. Executive Chef Craig Cupani keeps getting better and better. The tuna tatar starter was excellent. The crab cakes were devine - velvety, tender, flavorful and full of crab! The duck main and vegetables were perfect. The sommelier recommended Duckhorn's Golden Eye Pinot Noir, which paired perfectly with the duck. The service was responsive and courteous. The GHT caters to the pre/post theatre crowd, and had us on our way with time to spare. The complementary glasses of Proseco for our Anniversary was a nice touch! Highly recommended!

We usually rave about this restaurant. However, this night, there was a large, noisy party in the down stairs area. We sat pretty far from the noise so that was OK. The service was only fair - I guess the kitchen was too busy with the party. It was slow and we had to ask for the dishes from each course to be removed. We had a 7:00 p.m. curtain (which they were told) and actually left the restaurant with 5 minutes to spare.

Because we have a long history of fine dining in this venue, we will return and hope for the best.

We had been to the Glass House once before and it was good but this time we had a problem with their food. My wife and I ordered the special of the day which was a red snapper and her snapper came out uncooked and with a funny taste. They did replace the snapper but I had finished my dinner by the time she got her dinner. The meal was a disappointment.

A very nice multi-level restaurant in the theatre district offering both a la carte and prix fixe menus. Justifiably very popular so booking in advance is advisable. Gracious host. The food was well prepared , particularly the fish entrees, and the service was patient and pleasant. Recommend highly for pre-theatre.
