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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!
