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.

The tartare was great. Steak was reallllllllly chewy. Worst steak ever. HAlibut was okay. Risotto was amazing.

Wonderful venue and great attentive service. The appetizers were great, tho the pork chop did not sit well and seemed a bit too pink in the middle. Should have trusted my gut.

Gotham is great and has been forever. But, it would be nice if they offered a special every now and then. Yes they have their “Market” menu but maybe a nightly special would just make it even more spectacular.

Great to be in Gotham. Really a 5 star experience which gets downgraded because of the value for the money just being a couple dollars short and the unfortunate fact that we weren't able to order some things from the bar menu to serve as appetizers (who doesn't want some deviled eggs to start the night right).

If you're looking for a splurge date then this is your place and it does deliver the deliciousness. A+ on the risotto, steak and all the sea-based appetizers that we had along with impeccable professional service all night long.

Enjoy your nights in Gotham... wish we could make it a regular versus a splurge!

First rate NY restaurant experience. The wines by the glass were all amazing. The food, while not particularly adventurous, was rock solid. To start, we got the seafood salad and tuna tartare—both were fresh and in citrus dressings that heightened their flavor. For entrees, we got the miso cod and the dry aged steak, and both were phenomenal. We paired them with a red wine, and excellent craft beer, which went extremely well. Each dish was adorned with amazing complimentary vegetables. The peanut butter Sunday was perfect, and yet so rich we could not finish.

Food was great as always. Services was not, just expected tip a shame because the busers seemed to be way more attentive they should get the tip I left

This was a major disappointment after several wonderful experiences at Gotham in the past. The signature Seafood Salad —- formerly a soaring delight —- was a shrunken shadow of its old self. Branzino entree was just average, as was Chocolate Cake desert. In no way were the current prices justified. Given the quality, prices for appetizers and entrees were at least $10 too high. Service was just “okay.” Sad to say, we won’t be coming back.

Horrible service, horrible food. Overpriced for bad food, and rude service.

The food was great. Everything was cooked to perfection. The service was a bit slow, and after we were served it took a while for waitress to check to see if all okay. Waited a while for check, too. But we really loved all our meals. Expensive, but good.

Service was impeccable- from the minute we walked in-thru our entire dinner. We had the oyster special, Washington and Maine oysters. Very fresh and delicious. Also ordered tuna tartar, kale salad, beet salad and squash salad, each was fresh and presented wonderfully. We had high expectations for our dinner entrées which fell a little short. The duck entrée and Cod fish were exquisite. We also ordered the Ranch Pork and the New York Steak. The pork was dry and missing flavor. The steak, (ordered Medium) was more med ++. They both lacked the WOW factor that would enlighten my palette. At the price per entrée this left us slightly disappointed.

Love everything about Gotham! Restaurant week is extra special to try the delicious food. They pair appropriately priced wines with lunch which makes the entire experience worthwhile from a cost perspective. The service is outstanding. Never feel rushed. We cannot wait to go back!

Another superb Restaurant Week lunch. Every bite was delicious and the service, as always, was excellent. Will be back soon.
