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.
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.
The fondue was not properly melted, they don't have the right equipment - it comes to the table semi melted but because there was only a small candle, it never actually melted further... They claim the dish is for 2 but really if you want to make it a full meal, it serves 1.
We were planning on going here for my sister's birthday in November, but little did we know how advanced you have to place your reservation.
So I decided for our family Christmas gift exchange, we'd come here and reserved it a month ahead.
Not disappointed, everything tasted amazing and the service was quick/attentive.
Cheese focus was near but oh the chestnut soup! We love cheese. So many option we ended up settling on the grilled cheese. But we could not stop thinking about the chestnut soup featured for the holidays. Ordered it and so glad we did!!
2nd time back and it never disappoints. I highly recommend the Cheesemonger’s Choice and your favorite adult beverage.
Just delicious! We shared a number of plates. Great for vegetarians! You must try the fried burrata!! Insane.
We told the staff to surprise us with our cheese plate and after we ordered a bottle of wine they made sure that all the cheeses paired just right. Great food.
Such a fun litttle place! Trying out new cheeses with the perfect pairings by the restaurant. If you're overwhelmed by the cheese list, the server is great to refer a good cheese.
Food was super solid
Love love love this restaurant! Of all the options in Nyc, this is one of my absolute favorites! I’ve been here on several occasions, and everything— service, food and wine— are all consistently amazing!
There is something for everyone on the menu, but may I suggest the buffalo cheese curds or the Mac n cheese! Insanely delicious!
Best macaroni and cheese I’ve ever had in my life!!
The service was horrible and while the food was good the experience was not as amazing is it has been in the past.
Read numerous positive reviews about this place and wanted to try it over the past few years on visits to NY. Finally got there on recent trip and not disappointed. Great cheese and meat plates. Best lunch options appeared to be a wonderful BLT and an incredible baked Mac n cheese. Highly recommended.
