Gotham Bar and Grill
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.

Slow service , small portions , expensive but good food
Don't get me wrong. A very nice restaurant. Just have to say that the service and food was not what I would expect from a Micheline Star awarded restaurant.
I had an unusual experience at Gotham on Monday night. The food was delicious as usual. But I didn’t recognize anyone on the floor, not at the front of the house or among the wait staff. Maybe it was just because different people work on Mondays, but the service was very slow, and less professional- not at all what I’m used to at Gotham.
Gotham Bar & Grill continues to excel: fabulous food, impeccable service, lovely environment. Would recommend without hesitation.
Lovely and reliable
We had a wonderful dinner at Gotham Grill. We celebrated my son’s birthday and everything was great!
We had a lovely dinner with delicious fish dishes and attentive service from the very knowledgeable sommelier Christopher Freund. We will definitely return.
The waiter was very kind a courteous, I believe his name was David. He was very expressive and was very easy to talk to.
Definitely coming back soon
It was my wife’s birthday and her request. We just wanted a little something for recognition. It was a big birthday. The Maitre d’, the seater, the server, all wished her a happy birthday.
Dessert for us is always sorbet, and it cane out w a little candle.
Exactly what she wanted and how she wanted it.
Wonderful evening and they were very accommodating and nice. Can’t wait to return!
Simply outstanding food. All the staff involved in service were excellent too.
I have been to Gotham multiple times but this time it was very disappointing. Not only was the service extremely slow and lousy, but when I asked the waiter for water many times, he only passed on to the busboy who didn’t even care. I understand that it’s a Friday night but it’s not an excuse for such poor service.
The best New York strip I ever had.
Five stars on a perfect meal.
New York strip steak Medium rare
And Halibut dinner my wife loved,
Outstanding cocktails and wine .
Service was excellent.
It is my go to restaurant when I'm celebrating. I love the innovative cooking and the consistently excellent food, service and sound level.
Service is amazing... matches the quality of the food...!!!
Had been several years ago and it is still wonderful. Upbeat, pretty restaurant. Food was excellent. There were 4 of us and all had a different dish. Beet salad, ravioli, steak.....all fabulous! I highly recommend it. Pricing is what you would expect for a fine dining experience. Ours averaged $140pp which included 2 glasses of wine. I will definitely go back.
Very tasty food nice ambiance but the place feels dated. Old fashioned and a bit shoddy. Room could use a refresh. Very corporate clientele.
Consistently wonderful and civilized. We enjoy being able to hear ourselves talk. Service and food excellent.
Outstanding food and service ! We had a party of 6 celebrating our daughter’s college graduation. Service was attentive well coordinated. Setting was simply beautiful! Perfect choice for our special day❤️
Wanted a special restaurant to celebrate with an old friend. Our waiter was charming and so attentive. He made some excellent suggestions for our lunch and a nice wine selection. The dessert we got was nicely tailored for our celebration. Really enjoyed ourselves.
The food was really spectacular. The best halibut we’ve ever had. Highly recommend
Forever glorious. A little blip in the service at the start saved adroitly by Josh Lit, the Wine Director. The meal was, as usual, amazing. I have been going to the Gotham for at least twenty years. I am looking forward to the next time.
the food is excellent but services is always a bit impersonal and uninterested. The duck was outstanding as the oysters in a half shell and halibut!
First, I had to leave a credit card number for a reservation. Then they call and leave a message that I had to call to confirm. I called back and waited a while on hold.
When they finally answered, they cut me off. I had to call again. Finally, the food and service were only average. Risotto was too salty. Other food OK, but not special. In the past, this was a great restaurant. Not anymore!
A divine gastronomic experience starting with select oysters and red wine mignonette. Shared the most delicious tagliatelle with mushrooms, goat cheese and pine nuts which was a taste sensation. The main course of roasted halibut with truffle and vegetables was beyond delicious
My favorite restaurant for 30 years. Perfection.
After 25 years of exceptional meals at Gotham, my most recent was a disappointment. Everything seemed off. There were significant delays between courses. The server did come to apologize before the main dish was served. Then for the first time, my meal needed to be returned. The steak was well done instead of medium rare. The server couldn't have been nicer and brought another steak as quickly as possible. The steak itself is a much smaller cut than it had been in the past. My wife ordered a vegetarian off the menu entree. It was delish but looked more like a side dish. Hopefully, this was just a bad night for them.
Excellent service, excellent food presentation and flavor!! The best in NY. I just found the restaurant very cold temperature wise as well as decor wise. I felt like leaving quickly bc i was freezing. Otherwise i would recommend it again!!
Luckily there is still one place in NYC that you can go for a very pleasant lunch. It will cost you and I could almost say it’s totally worth it.
Simply terrific as always. Bartenders can be surly, but I guess that is part of their shtick.
Truly enjoyed the food and service! Daniel was delightful! Hidden gem in the city!
One of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had.
The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was delightful
Great experience, made even better by our waiter Dan.
Good service except for the actual waiter who took awhile to take order
Gotham Bar & Grill is stellar in every way. I first went there, I believe, the year it opened. NYC has a "tradition" of blasting special restaurants to vaulted positions - soon, they fall like trees in a forest.
Not so with GB & G - every element of this fine establishment has remained superior and, possibly, elevated over the years. I say Bravi Tutti! Can't wait to go back.
Food really has to improve to keep up with the service, pricing and experience. We ordered a 'Reserve NY Steak' that was gristly and came with sides that had no taste. Our pasta and salad were fine - but not relative to the extraordinary prices. We'd really like to see them come back!
Fabulous dining experience. Beautiful ambience, exquisite food, attentive waitstaff. My hands-down favorite restaurant in New York, year after year. I kid you not.
