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.

Shockingly grumpy, slow, and inattentive service. At the very end, it even crossed into rude territory. A real surprise (and hopefully anomaly) since Gotham is usually so lovely.

Excellent lunch prix fixe. Great to be in a place again where food and service are what it’s all about. Enjoyed a more quiet environment for a change. Service was outstanding. The food was wonderful and wines were great - all excellent price value. Definitely would recommend!

I wanted to provide a special evening for my wife on our last night in New York. The Gotham was everything I hoped....from the welcome to the table, everything was perfect. The food was lovely and the wine first class. It's a warm, excellent restaurant for that special occaission. I'd recommend it without hesitation

Phenomenal service! Amazing food. The cod was remarkable. It does lack the small added perks offered in some restaurants of this caliber that help justify the exorbitant prices. Overall though, Gotham was a superb dining experience. Just be prepared to open your wallet wide.

The service and food were truly outstanding. It was a great choice for my son’s college graduation dinner. We had a child, a vegetarian, and a picky eater in our party, but all found great dishes they could enjoy on the menu.

We are lucky to be able to dine anywhere in town. This is such a lovely way to spend the evening with a loved one from out of town - or at any time.

I meant to take a picture of the miso cod but I ate it first. Goat cheese tortellini⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Excellent wine suggestion. Only Gotham can make a ‘simple’ peanut butter sundae taste out of this world.

Thank you!

This was the perfect place—-lunch w someone I hadn’t seen in about ten years. It’s never noisy, even at peak holiday season, service is solicitous w/o being overbearing, the price fixe ALWAYS a bargain, even w wine and coffee added, and we were left alone after lunch for as long as we wanted. We’d still be there a day later if I didn’t have a date w my wife.

The food wasn't bad, but just way below what we were expecting. Insanely over-priced for what you get. I don't mind spending at all to go out to dinner so this isn't a negative review just because it is expensive. Simply put, I've had significantly better food elsewhere. Left disappointed, and wouldn't go back.

We went to Gotham for my wife's birthday--an occasion. The restaurant is very beautiful, but the service was lacking. Our waitress was polite but perfunctory, and I was missing that extra touch of sincere attentiveness that you expect in a fine restaurant. My wife's pork chop was overdone. My lobster in Thai curry sauce was pretty perfect, as it should be for $54. We didn't order dessert, and were served a little birthday treat of 6 little balls of dough and a candle. Not sure what they were supposed to be, but that was underwhelming. I don't want to sound like a snob, but when I'm dropping over $200 for a light meal and 2 drinks, I expect a little more. Like Union Square Cafe-style...

Although I gave 4 to 5 stars, to food, ambiance and service I must recognized that the place is a little overprice. My family and I love food and we have try great food in many places that does not require a high end value then yet the food is as delicious as Gotham. The food is very tasty and yes it could be too seasoned, but also light to digest leaving the palate with a wonderful after taste. If I have to recommend will be the Duck. No many restaurants can cook duck so the meat can be soft and tender.

we live in LA with a place in NY, so we're in town 4-5 times during the year or more and always try to get to Gotham Bar and Grill, but, I am sad to say, I think we won.t be back. I don't mind sitting in the farthest table in the back; it was quieter. And, it afforded us to see all those who got big luscious looking lamb chops, but not me. Mine came...pretty late too, the "nut " of them was as big as a walnut...2 bites in each chop for me, tasty, but unsatisfying and with lots of gristle and fat. The female waitress came over to check. She was no oneI would hire. I didn't want to be at another dinner waiting for my meal, so I said nothing . And, the knives aren't sharp enough to cut the gristle and fat...It was a completely ordinary meal.My husband did like his tasty steak, and he had plenty of it; it wasn't as rare as the medium rare he ordered. And, you weren't so busy that night. The service was also ordinaire. The bread deliverer was incompetent. We left after a disappointing so-so dinner. I am sorry, but, I have to take you off my list. I should have taken pictures. And, BTW, at 2 tables just below us 2 men had enormous chops. One many shared his with 2 big cuts for 2 of his guests. Enough said .

I meet a friend of mine from Junior High School (that was about 60 years ago!) at The Gotham every year or slightly more often - depending on when I get to the City - where I lived for 44 years - in the West Village - but alas, no longer. We always have a lovely time . Such a handsome, sophisticated setting - restful and attractive - refined - not at all frantic or noisy. The last two visits we had the same excellent waiter - John - So attentive and friendly and fun! I personally find the food a bit too overworked - I would prefer it to be a bit simpler and more tasty - perhaps like classic French country cuisine - I don't need it to be so "fussy" - "overly cree-yay-tive" - And it certainly is pricey - though perhaps not considering the superb service and beautiful setting which can't be "cheap" to maintain. We have such a good time, each time, that we look forward to returning again, as soon as possible. Thanks for a lovely time - especially to John! - very special person.

Seafood salad is one of my favorites there. that being said, everything is good there. Was almost half hour late and they were gracious enough to hold my reservation. I did drop over 600 bucks for three people so at least it was worth the wait :)
My second time there and am sure will be back again.

Came here for a birthday dinner. I had been in the past and remembered having a nice meal. It was just bit disappointing after 2 great meals at The Mercer Kitchen and The Standard Bar and Grill. The bread wasn’t warmed or particularly special. Our starters were nice but our main courses were pretty average. I had the black cod which was drowned in sauce and not esp tasty. My husband had the NY strip steak which was v fatty and he preferred the one he had at The Standard Bar and Grill. We had chocolate cake for dessert which was powdery and not that delicious. Still- we paid our $400 for the bill and on leaving asked if we could have some help getting a cab. The maitre d’ helpfully told us ‘they would be roaming around outside’. A poor end to an average meal experience.

Service was very slow. Despite the fact we were dressed well and were very polite when being seated, we were treated almost like we didn’t belong. Seems like a place where they treat perceived insiders and outsiders quite differently. The food was good but overpriced for lunch. Approximately $260 for four people without any alcohol. Underwhelmed. More friendly places in the neighborhood.
