I'm not one prone to hyperbole- The black label burger is one of the best things I've eaten in my life. Great classic atmosphere, wonderful service. Highly recommend a visit.
Minetta was excellent as always. The only surprise came when we found out that the bar and dining room are two different entities with two different menus.
If you want bar food be sure to reserve the bar. Our mistake was awesome, but very costly.
A nice upscale restaurant with a cozy feeling. We liked being there and feeling that we were in New York. Service was impeccable. My wife thought the Moules Frites were the best ever. My Croque Monsieur could have been half the size and double the flavor, but it was still OK. I have had many better ones. I asked for Dijon mustard which was delivered promptly. The Minetta Tavern is labeled a French restaurant, but be prepared that the most popular order seemed to be a Dry Martini and a hamburger. Maybe that what is they do in France these days, too...
Place is amazing. Best burgers out there!
The food is just classic and amazing!
Dad and daughter dinner. Always amazing. Love sitting at the bar as much as the dining room. Bone marrow and a black label burger with cocktails made for another memorable visit.
Order the Black Label Burger. It is life changing. It's a bit expensive but definitely worth the price!
Excellent food, the bar is very crowded, try to book a table far from the kitchen
Wonderful service and delicious food in a cozy but not cramped neo-bistro!
Highly energetic at night. Their burger is unbelievable and definitely a must.
Despite being late for our reservation (rainy night/rush hour/no cabs) we were greeted warmly by hostesses and seated at our table. Catherine our server was excellent. Food and ambiance were wonderful. This is truly an iconic restaurant!
Eat some cattle if you go, burger is obviously very good and bone marrow/steaks are all good. Fish was very weak, disappointing to say the least.
Black label burger is probably the best burger in the world
Dinner with my wife. Excellent all the way around
Stone cold class!
An NYC institution, don’t think about it just go!
I come to NYC 3-4 times a year. My wife is able to join me for a couple of those trips. We always make a point of coming to Minetta Tavern. This place is truly iconic and classic NY. The vibe here is undesirable and amazing.
The food, the cocktails, service and diverse and classy patrons just make it perfect. Until next time....
Always a favorite and never lets you down
Exceptional 1st time dining experience! Our waiter was great with explaining us the cocktails and food. I appreciated the attention to detail when I noted in my reservation it would be my bf birthday. They delivered with a candle and happy birthday written on the plate. Thank you Minetta Tavern! I will be coming back for sure!
After many years of wanting to have dinner at Minetta Tavern, we finally took the plunge and went. It is a very quaint place with a great staff - very friendly and wanting to please. The scallops appetizer was delicious but we had heard that the burgers were the way to go so we also ordered them. Although I have never paid that much for a burger they did not disappoint! If you love good food in a cool restaurant setting, definitely worth it!
Delightful! Old world charm. Great location in the heart of The Village. Varied menu with good wine list and cocktails.
Food is always excellent and the Cote de boeuf was outstanding.
Delicious old school French in a lively, loud, crowded environment
The food was really good and the service was attentive. Bone marrow and black burger are a must!!! Really good cocktails
A great place to be at the bar or sit at a table for dinner. Casual but smart.
Always great. Super-fancy pub. Wonderful atmosphere. Good beef-y food.
Outstanding and consistent, every time.
Burger was under salted. There was also a hair in our pâté. Will not be back for a bit
Great burger! Service was also great. Being one of the oldest restaurants in NYC makes the trip to Minetta Tavern worth it due to the ambiance.
ONE OF THE BEST 'LOCAL' BAR-RESTAURANTS I HAVE EVER BEEN TO; FOR A FEELIING LIKE YOU'RE IN 'OLD NEW YORK', YOU CAN'T PICK A BETTER SPOT THAN THE BAR AT MINETTA'S.
Wonderful atmosphere. Had dined here five years ago and remember much better food. For what you pay, even in NYC, it should have been really excellent. But it wasn’t.
The manager was a bit of a blow hard who kept talking at me as I was eating lunch at the bar. He kept talking about “the hustle” that was required in the restaurant business, liberally dropping the f bomb. Very unprofessional. Doubt I’ll return anytime soon.
Loved Minetta Tavern beautiful restaurant fab food great vibe. Steak was cooked perfectly also amazing cocktails
One of New York’s dining gems. A must try is the black label burger... and for dessert either the chocolate soufflé or vanilla grand marnier soufflé. Fabulous service and atmosphere.
Always a great experience.
The warmth and friendliness of the staff was obvious the minute you entered the restaurant. I had one of the best hamburgers of my life perfectly prepared. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and plan to return.
Place was jamming! Server was great we sat on the right had side on the wall passed the bar. Food was excellent duck ravioli
We started w the pate then the burger and duck. Each plate better than the last. Finished it off w chocolate soufflé. Truly an outstanding meal!! Already looking forward to going back. Waiter attentive and nice.
Always a plessure.
The servers were so friendly and the concierge made the night special with his great recommendations. Wonderful atmosphere, a fun spot that always entertains.
