Tomato soup was lukewarm but food was delicious. The restaurant is extremely noisy.
This is one of my wife's and my favorite places to eat in New York. We are both cheese lovers and enjoy a nice bottle of wine or a couple of craft beers. Murray's is the place to satisfy all of these. While we do see an occasional group, it seems to be mostly a place for couples to enjoy a meal together and each other's company.
Quite noisy, but good staff and lots of cheese choices.
Always phenomenal food and so I knew it would be the ideal location to celebrate my mom's birthday before seeing a show. They sang happy birthday and even gave her a complimentary dessert. They make sure to take care of their customers and it really shows!
What a wonderful meal. Great selection of cheese and wine. The vegetable dishes are top notch, and the Mac and Cheese is out of this world.
Food takes a real long time to get to the table but loved the presentation and taste and flavors.
My girlfriend and I love stopping in to Murray's Cheese Bar every time she is in town. The variety, selection, and unique nature of the various cheeses is always really fun and exciting. We strongly recommend going all out and getting the large cheesemonger's board. Other highlights include the raclette, the beer cheese soup, the fried burrata, and the cheese curds. The way the restaurant is set up is great for people watching and intimate conversation, and the cheesemongers' service is always top notch. Our waiter this time was a little clueless, but very affable, though they should probably require that their staff wear some sort of identification, we initially didn't quite believe that he actually worked there.
This is a favorite spot that we try to visit when we come to NYC. The cheese tastings matched with spreads, nuts or other enhancement s are delicious. Also pair wine and craft beer with cheese. The artichoke and Brussels sprouts were delicious as a side dish or for the vegans in your group. Mac and cheese has won awards and is delicious. Grilled cheese with tomato soup could comfort any appetite.
Unreal... great place would recommend 10/10
We tried the cheese tower for the first time and it was fantastic. Great choice of cheese and side pairings!
Excelent food and ambience. I would highly recommend it for a get together meal.
Absolutely delicious! This was our second time here, and it's definitely worth the trip. It's both fun and super tasty, but not a place for anyone who can't have milk products, hah.
I LOVE this place. This was my second time here and I can’t wait to come back. The cheese is outstanding and so is the service.
Unfortunately the sliders were extremely dry. My friend's mac and cheese was good. The waiters were awesome!
We wanted to celebrate my going off on tour with some fondue. We asked for a recommendation because the raclette looked good, but he recommended the holiday special fondue (even though he didn’t really look like he knew what he was talking about). Honestly—we should have done the raclette. I’ve wanted to try that for a long time, it looked appealing, and the fondue was really “eh.” Certainly wasn’t enough for two people, and we definitely had leftover charcuterie and additions on the plate when the cheese was finished. I will say the cider I had was delicious—but their cocktail menu is sad. Maybe they should get a liquor license. I bet that would help business. It would have gotten mine.
Is there anything better than a CHEESE BAR?! Murray's never disappoints. You can get regular delicious food or you can order a ridiculous amount of cheese (or both, bc why not?) Just let your server know your cheese preferences and let them to the rest. One of my favorite spots.
I’ve been there a few times before and always sat at the bar and learned from the bartenders who are also cheese experts. Last night I was with a larger party, so the bar was not possible. Our server seemed a little clueless and struggled with our order and didn’t offer much expertise when asked questions. The cheese and wine were tasty as always.
Amazing service and attention to detail! Great food and cocktails!
Authentic food, amazing selection, great local cheeses and wonderful service - Murray's has it all!!
Amazing wine and cheese pairings as well as a friendly and warm environment.
This was our second time at Murray's and although the company we dined with was less than desirable, the food, atmosphere, and the service was spot on. Thanks for the fabulous drinks that got us through the evening.
We will be back (without her).
We celebrated my fathers birthday at Murrays. Everything I had read about their food was spot on. The Mac and Cheese was excellent as was the Thai Chicken the Lamb Meatballs and the Grilled Artichokes. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will be returning soon.
Great location and menu. Best to make a reservation. Cheese selection was amazing and delicious! Went shopping for cheese at the market down the street afterwards.The artichoke appetizer was succulent. Nice wine pairings with cheese plate. Definitely will return.
What a great place the cheese platters apps wine was delicious . I would highly recommend it.
Have to say very disappointed in Murrays Cheese Bar this time around. My husband and I were craving one of their (usually) very good burgers, but on this occasion we were bitterly disappointed. The burger came out in a thin, stale, supermarket store bought bun. I asked the server why it is not the normal nice bun that comes with the burger, and he said "there was a problem with ordering so we had to go out and buy these buns". I am sorry, but that is not good enough. First, our burgers were nearly $20 each with the bacon, secondly there are about 3 AMAZING bakeries around very close to Murrays, one literally NEXT DOOR, and they went to a supermarket to buy old stale buns. Unacceptable. The buns fell apart from the first bite, and we had to use knives and forks to eat them. For the price, they should have tried harder to get great buns to coincide with what they charge! We live literally around the corner from this restaurant, and have bought many many friends there, but now we feel like we can't do this. Really annoyed about this. I know it is just a "bun", but the bun is the vehicle that holds all the goodness together, and if you get a stale, thin, white flavorless bun with a burger, it takes away the whole enjoyment of eating a burger! Also the burger was VERY small, WAY smaller than it used to be, and overcooked. Ugh.
Good food and service but I was still hungry after dinner
Delicious! Impressive selection of cheese and the staff is very knowledgeable about every one of them. Love that they offer a wine pairing to the cheeses. Brunch was fantastic. The Vermont Sausage was incredible quality. Croque Madame had a fantastic sharp tasting béchamel sauce on it. Our cheese plate was excellent as well, condiment pairings were spot on. I can't wait to go back for dinner, and to try the mac & cheese.
Had the Raclette. Not bad. Should have asked for some salt to add to the meeting cheese to release more flavor. Just wish they have is more potatoes.
Fabulous food, fun vibe, good service
It’s was amazing! Great food and awesome atmosphere!
We had a wonderful engagement brunch celebration with friends. The food was delicious and service was excellent!
Poor service, bartender arguing about serving me corked wine, undelivered food items (but charged for), mediocre food.
Favorite place yet! Cute atmosphere, incredible staff & the food was phenomenal.
Great service, amazing cheese selection... great first date for cheese lovers.
I ordered the seasonal Mac n cheese and it was basically inedible (huge chunks of broccoli that were too hard to chew through, gritty sauce). My boyfriend ordered the sliders and his burgers were dry (bun included). Pretty disappointing overall.
Ambiance rating was lower just because the temperature in the restaurant was too cold. Food was great but value of some dishes not great due to very small sizes.
Food used to be phenomenal but they've gone down drastically since the last visit. Menu changed for the worst and just isn't good anymore...shame as their cheese plates are amazing. Will only come back for appetizers/cheese plate
The grilled artichokes were delicious, as was the cheesemonger choice of cheese + meat plate! A little pricey, but the cheese is SO good!
i didnt enjoy the mac and cheese as much as others. i like more plain mac and cheese but my date loved it and the artichoke dip and the melt your own cheese platter
This was the first time I was disappointed at Murray's. The food, as always, was excellent. The service was a problem. We arrived promptly for our 4:00 PM reservation and were the first seated as Murray's just opened at 4:00 PM. We placed our order with a waiter we did not ever see again. After 45 minutes of waiting, we asked a passing server if there was a problem in the kitchen. Several other tables who arrived after us were being served. There was an apology and a free slice of cheese. Ten minutes later we received our orders and my burger came without the ordered bacon and onions. I hope this is a glitch and not a harbinger of things to come.
