We’ve been selling cheese at our Bleecker Street flagship store since 1940, and in 2012 the team behind Murray’s Cheese decided we needed a place to host our friends and neighbors for cheesy brunches, dinners and spirited celebrations. Murray’s Cheese Bar was born, and so was a world of fine cheeses made locally and abroad, selected and arranged by expert mongers or cooked into divine dishes by our seasoned chefs.

We love cheese, but our menu also features seasonal specials, high-quality meat and produce and fantastic happy hour specials during the week. Join us for dinner seven nights a week or weekend brunch next time you’re passing through Greenwich Village and see why we’re so in love with what we serve

Disappointing visit to Murray’s which I usually love, service was so slow and it wasn’t even a full restaurant. They had run out of the baguette bread, and no longer serve the skin on fries, instead we got frozen fries tossed in some rosemary.

Only reason I didn’t give them 5 full stars is because we ordered the fondue and the two meats came in bowls each with a rounded bottom; over the course of the evening when trying to skewer a piece, the bowls rotated onto their sides and dumped their contents onto the counter and into our laps.

The restaurant wasn't very busy but we still waited for a while before the waitstaff came over to speak to us. The food was good, but the portions have gotten a lot smaller! They made a mistake on our check (they added two additional entrees) and on top of that, my reservation was marked as a no-show even though one person was there on time and was seated at the table.

Food was good as always but the waiter only took orders for half the table leading 1/2 the group to get food much earlier.

The staff were all really nice and very accommodating and polite (we were late to our reservation and they didn't say a word about it). All of the food was very bland with an odd spicy taste. Perhaps it was the meals we selected, and, had we selected the racclete or Fondue or other featured dish it may have been a different experience.

Have eaten here several times before. This time the small plates we had did not have quality level of past meals. Maybe it was just our choices. Wine & service were good. Overall for the cost the meal was not memorable.

Murray's is a unique place for people who REALLY like cheese. The menu is diverse, the staff is nice, and the cheese is amazing, no matter what you order. The service was a little slow and the place wasn't even full, but we really enjoyed the place and will definitely go back.

Came here Friday evening for a light dinner -- the grand fondue was everything we wanted it to be and was the perfect size for two people. If you are looking for a full meal I recommend also getting a starter. It is a bright space during the day and as it turns to evening it gets a little bit more of an ambiance.

The service was a little slow. It was nice because we did not feel rushed, but it also became difficult to get our check when we were ready to leave. This was strange because they had plenty of staff and it wasn't that busy at the time we were there.

Absolutely the best place for a cheese plate in New York City. Wish it wasn't a dollar more to choose your own cheeses off the a la carte menu though.

The fondue had little thought put into it and was messy. Service was poor and slow made us feel unwelcome. Very disappointed

Overall, I really enjoyed my time here. Its cute and pleasant inside and the food is very good. The one issue was our food took a very long time time come out, but our server apologized and sent us some free cheeses in the mean time which seems the best way of handling this situation in my mind and made up for any inconvenience.

A MUST for the cheese lover when in New York. There are few chances in life to have selections made by a CHEESE MONGER and pairings with wine. Exceptional Quality. Sometimes a little to noisy for my ears.
You also must visit the cheese shop next door...ever more than you can impagine

The cheese plate was excellent. The main courses were just ok. The music was so loud, we could not hear one another.
