Contemporary American
Since first opening its doors in 1984, Gotham Bar and Grill has epitomized New York City dining at its finest, serving Executive Chef Alfred Portale's sublime and refreshingly accessible Contemporary American Cuisine in a dining room that is consistently packed with sophisticated diners from all over the country and the world.

One of the secrets of Gotham's success is that it is an institution that has never become institutional. The unparalleled quality of the food and service are constants, but the rest of the Gotham experience is constantly updated to keep the restaurant feeling as fresh as the day it opened. New menu items are introduced each season, the wine list is always evolving, and the dining room is regularly revamped.

Gotham Bar and Grill has been honored as Most Outstanding Restaurant in the nation by the James Beard Foundation, which named Chef/Owner Alfred Portale Most Outstanding Chef in the nation for 2006.

Gotham was recommended by a local friend and it did not disappoint. The service and ambiance were very good. The food was very good and we got out with lots of time to make out theatre performance. Celebrity sighting in the dining room just took the experience over the top (smile). Will definitely revisit when in town again.

Amazing experience. The food was absolutely delicious.
If seafood is your thing, must order the seafood salad. The lamb was perfect and the apple Tatin was to die for. Not to forget, the service was outstanding. I will
definitely return.

One of the best meals I have ever had, hands down. The seafood salad appetizer was amazing and definitely something a little different. We also had the rib eye and the lobster main and were not disappointed. Every aspect of this meal was on point from the food, to the service, to the ambiance. We can't wait to come back again!

Fortunately, Gotham is still at the top of the NYC restaurant dining experiences. Among the few restaurants left where the food, service and ambience are equally superior, and the vibe is as contemporary and relevant as it was 35 years ago when it opened!

First time at GB&G, great all around experience and quality. Service was first class and friendly. Really a great nite celebrating our anniversary. Only thing that kept food from being five stars was the over-dosing of lemon in the Risotto, beyond that the Lamb Chops were best I’ve had anywhere in the world.

Very disappointed My fish was burned. Instead of replacing it I hit and argument about that’s the way you prepare it. It was burned on top. I’ve had the dish before at Hotham and it was very much better. I had my food replaced but still Over cooked. I’ve been dining at Gotham for many years and never thought that the food would be over cooked and served burned (heavy charred black on top)

I attentive service from the wait staff we were greeted pleasantly by host and taken to our table. We waited over 15 Minutes to be acknowledged. It’s like your staff had no time for us. Sad.

Dined here last 5 years ago, and had a wonderful meal and experience. This time, however, was - for the most part - a disappointment. The four of us had appetizers and an entree, and shared two desserts. All reported the meal to be "okay" or "pretty good", but at these prices I was expecting much better. Foie gras, in particular, was underwhelming (at $37!). Service was incredibly slow, and the restaurant was not overly crowded. Would think twice about returning, which is unfortunate because this used to be one of my "go-to" restaurants for special occasions or just a nice night out.

We returned to Gotham for our Anniversary celebration. This time only for lunch. Didn’t disappoint..I always feel special there and service is amazingly attentive but not too much. Food exquisite even for off the usual path like curried lentil cauliflower soup (could have had more kick for a curried dish). The part that will always keep us coming back: the chocolate cake:
More like a cocoa powdery cake.. so amazing can’t imagine how it’s created.

From start to finish, all of our dishes were delicious. The tuna tartare was the right blend of taste and texture, the beet salad was perfectly dressed, the broth with the mushroom tagliatelle was fabulous, the bass was perfectly cooked and they even had rhubarb soufflé for dessert! Can’t wait to dine here again.

I used to frequent the Gotham Bar and Grill over 30 years ago, saw the Anniversary advertisement and thought I should give it a try again. Well worth it! Atmosphere is great, on a great street. Food is amazing. Had tuna appetizer and ravioli, very tiny and huge flavor. Just a great night.

have gone to Gotham for 30 years on special occasions. think it has become quite ordinary and overpriced. decor is lovely but should be updated. menu reads well but food has no panache. no amuse Boucher and stale donut holes which were free and hardly worth it.
