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.

We had delicious meal with beautiful presentation.....But a condescending and disinterested server detracted from our Father's Day dinner. There are better choices for a Special Occasion where one might feel more welcome and appreciated.

Food was good, but not outstanding as it was in the past. I wouldn't recommend the goat cheese ravioli, it was flavorless. Portions have gotten smaller over the years. Great atmosphere and service..

While the service was impeccable, not all the food was.
Tuna tartar was excellent, as was the carrot soup and duck breast.
We found the steak and lamb chops to be no better than other top rated steak houses.
As for dessert, very disappointed in the chocolate cake, which we found to be too mushy and grainy at the same time, and also somewhat bitter.
The passion fruit baked Alaska, was excellent, however, it was only the size of a mouth full for a child!
The price for this was exorbitant, based on the serving size. Would have gladly been ok with the price if there was a decent size portion.
Bathrooms downstairs not good for everyone.

We were visiting NY to celebrate our 38th Anniversary, and what better place to do it than at Gotham? We've been coming to Gotham since 2001 and we've never had anything other than a great experience. This time it was truly exceptional. We arrived early (it's difficult to time NYC traffic) but were greeted warmly (with the Host wishing us a Happy Anniversary first thing) and seated immediately at the table we requested. Throughout the evening, it seemed as though half the staff came over to wish us Happy Anniversary at one point or another. Every staff member was personable, the service was outstanding, the food beautifully presented and tasty. Particular kudos to Sarah and Edward who took such good care of us. They even comped us dessert. There are many places in Manhattan that serve great food, but is there any place that offers better service?

It's good...but not grass fed.
They use that "oxygen" preservative on ..something...not sure what....woke up with that awful residue taste.

We went for our anniversary and asked for a private table. Everyone was very accommodating. We were welcomed with happy Anniversary greetings from the hostess, the maitre’d and the waitress. They gave us a perfect table. The food was fantastic. My halibut was juicy and delicious.

Gotham presents a quiet romantic atmosphere with muted lighting and hues. Its variety of banquettes are of cool curved stone justo positioned against billowing linen chandeliers feels like “Casablanca” with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman! Chef’s cuisine is excellent fare with surprising combinations that aren’t intimidating. The menu has varied choices to please today’s eccentric palettes. Sommelier commands a “huge” cellar, and surprised me with a delightful dry sherry with dessert. Gotham’s French service is invisibly “always” there predicting your needs, but not hovering. Gotham truly makes their guests feel “pampered plus appreciated,” and that’s worth paying for in the mist of hustling and bustling, Manhattan.

My infrequent visits to New York would not be complete without a reservation at Gotham. Superior friendly service from all. Food selections are fantastic and, despite my protestations, I appreciated the impromptu Birthday acknowledgement. My absolute favorite restaurant in the country. Worth a visit whether in NYC a day or a week. Never off my list.

Not what it used to be AT ALL. Service was very poor, they never asked if we wanted more drinks and the waiter was MIA for almost the entire meal (even though there was only 4-5 other tables with customers). Food was very “meh”.
Not coming back. Too bad, as a lifelong NYer I had always loved this place.

Transcendent experience from the moment we entered until we left for the evening. Maitre ‘d welcomed us, happily accommodated a last-minute addition to the table. Talked with us for awhile and made us feel at home. The wait staff was kind to the two teen finicky eaters at our table. Service was non-intrusive but always there when we needed something. My Old Fashions we’re spot on and exactly the same from drink to drink. Halibut was delicious and would order again. Thank you so much for a memorable evening, I will return again and again.

Simply an outstanding experience from start to finish. Our party of was immediately greeted and seated upon arrival. This was a family celebration, and the room captain and all service staff made note of it upon greeting us. Given that we are a group that likes to sample multiple items and share, we were able to experience a good part of the menu. Highly notable and recommended dishes for early courses were the seafood salad, tuna tartare, paparadelle and risotto. All were outstanding. Main courses included Halibut, NY Strip, lobster and Cod. Without question, the Halibut was the star of the evening, even among all excellent dishes. Have never had better, even in notable seafood restaurants. Service was impeccable, as were the wine selections recommended by Sommelier, Chris. Overall, a very memorable experience! Will return whenever possible!

Have dined here many times over the years and it's always a sublime experience. Be prepared however to spend. I did think that our waitress could have been a little friendlier but that's a minor point. We were there for dinner but I would honestly recommend brunch. The food, service is just as special and it will be a much less expensive outing.
