Very, very noisy. Fish was good, but mussels were bland and snails plain, no taste, and dry..no juice. Soufflé was good.
We’ll not go back.
Nice decor, great ambiance, very good service, unfortunately I wasn't impressed by their brunch.
Always great food and ambiance! Our server was very nice. This time we came to the restaurant it was so hot and was hard to enjoy.
Everything was perfect except for when my husband asked for some sauce for his steak they were extremely rude and condescending about it. It’s not unheard of to ask for steak sauce and when you’re paying for a 65 dollar steak you should be able to eat it however you like. When they did bring a sauce it was delicious and perfect. Just wish the rude attitude didn’t come with it
The food was great and so was the service ... I would highly recommend it.
Amazing food - had the bone marrow and signature burger. Great drinks. Sit at the bar and be served by the most wonderful bartender: Matt.
Best burger, good steak.
Excellent service and fantastic food.
Our waiter, Leslie, was fantastic and made the experience even better!
Nothing special in any way. Fun area of town, but lots of options in that neighborhood. I went for brunch, very ordinary, perhaps dinner is better. No need to go back.
Minetta Tavern always has great food.
We went for brunch the selections and the preparation were very good.
NYC Classic. Best enjoyed after seeing a show at Comedy Cellar. Highly recommend the Black Label Burger and the Pommes Anna.
Great food and service with a smile. Cannot beat this classic NYC experience.
The burgers were incredibly salty. The meat, while very flavorful, was mushy in texture, almost as if it was over-ground. The buns became very damp and essentially fell apart.
The fries were excellent as was the pate.
The cocktails were solid, but for $18 & $20 each they should’ve been.
We went just for the burgers but, honestly, they weren’t all that amazing. Given the noise level in the restaurant and the cramped seating, I think diners can have a better overall experience elsewhere.
Perfect as always
Black Label burger was overpriced (probably won't order again) but was VERY good. Fries were unbelievable as well.
Went for brunch and had the burger. Great drink list, great food, excellent service.
Love the vibe.
thanks for having us
We LOVED Hostess Mary/Maria? There was a mix up with the reservation and she IMMEDIATELY accommodated my party.(The Gentleman had flown in all the way from Alabama for business and it made quite an impression!) The food is usually very excellent however our monkfish was overcooked and immediately the waiter was able to get us a different dish quickly and effectively without a lot of fanfare! It was the Burger and it was absolutely delicious!!! I will absolutely come back with friends as well as for business for that Burger alone!!! Thx For a really great experience! xoTheDamo
Birthday - fabulous!
Excellent Food, great service, fine decor and a taste of the old neighborhood.
This is my new favorite Old French Restaurant. The service was fantastic, the food was divine and the vibe is old school solid french. It was perfect. We went back for dinner after booking for lunch - that is how good it was.
Steak Frites - the Steak was tender, juicy and delicious with the Garlic Butter. The fries were perfect.
The French toast which we had for dessert rather than starter was also fabulous.
Wonderful and accommodating service. The food was excellent and the vibe was comfortable.
Loved Minetta Tavern. The scallop crudo was fantastic, and the burgers (my husband and I split the Minetta burger and Black Label burger) did not disappoint. I'll definitely be returning.
We had the Minetta burgers. Amazing!!!
Best martini I've ever had! I love the old school vibe and energy here. We ordered one of the appetizer specials which needed seasoning, and we had the bone marrow which I cannot resist. It was perhaps a little too much with all the bread from both dishes, but the bone marrow was melt in your mouth deliciousness. For our main dish we had a fish special which was extraordinary and don't forget to order the soufflé! I will definitely be going back as I need to try the famous black label burger. I recommend this for a date night / special occasion; you have to try it at least once!
Delicious. Great service. The best steak I've eaten in my long life. Lovely, classic setting. My new favorite spot in the city.
Excellet food, loved their burger, and nice atmosphere.
Best burger in NYC but expensive. Despite the price, you have to try the Black Label burger
The Hamburg quality of meat was terrible, and we ask for “medium”, but they made rare. I showed them, and they made again, and now came very well done and hard! The flavor was very bad. Impossible to eat... Disappointed. I went there many times Years ago, and was fabulous. But now, it’s other, very bad!
We have been trying to eat here for a long time! Our luck, a table opened up this past Saturday.
Loud and fun we thoroughly enjoyed our appetizer, trout, and drinks.
Excellent service. Attentive but wise enough to allow time for us to savor our meal and each other's company.
An all around wonderful experience. We will return.
The black label burger is the best burger worldwide.
The service is always well executed at this historical restaurant.
One this visit the hostess was able to accommodate our +1 for the reservation for two. (Thanks and sorry for the last minute add)
Use open table and make a res today.
This is a place we always wanted to visit as it is one of the old New York City places you should visit at least once. It's been difficult to get a table without a reservation, so when one appeared on Open Table we grabbed it. We have heard that the best burger in NYC can be found at Mineta Tavern, but it costs $25. I have to say this is very overrated. The burger is good, but not worth $25. The bottom of the bun was soggy and it was just a burger. The fries were good though.
Our evening was made a thousand times better due to our waitress Rebecca. The food was great. She recommended desserts which were just amazing. Her service was perfect. The beef burgers were even better than the last time I was here. My favorite restaurant so far!
Absolutely amazing place for lunch or dinner! Hands down the best burger I have ever eaten! Staff was friendly and attentive. I WILL definitely be going back if I ever visit New York again!
First of all, the cocktails, fries, and chocolate soufflé here are OUT OF THIS WORLD. But the black label burger at Minetta was a huge disappointment. Maybe my husband and I aren't the most adept to fine dining, but we certainly know meat. And it seems like a sin to grind beef tenderloin to make a ground beef patty. Although the dry aged flavor was musty and wonderful, the overall texture of the burger was very mashed potato-esque. If you find yourself ordering this burger, please stop them when they ask if medium-rare is ok. We're typically fine with some red in the center of a burger, but this guy was RAW. Because it's whole-muscle grind, we weren't particularly concerned about food safety, but it still just made the whole experience feel wrong. Unfortunately, it was the biggest let down of our NY trip. If you go, order the steak frittes.
Good but not great. Solid food and service that you expect from a Keith McNally but the space is too small for the number of people they pack in. The cost is not inline with the food that is 20% less at his other venues. For the overall cost you should not be getting your chair bumped every few minutes. The Black Label Burger is good but not worth the price tag.
