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.

I had the best birthday at Glass House Tavern! The staff was so kind when I had a few more friends show up than I had anticipated. Great service!!!

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.
