I was very warm being sat close to the door. It wasn’t a great experience. I love the restaurant and ambiance pre-covid. I still love it! But, being seated by the front door for a lunch meeting was disappointing.

Very slow in getting bill—very. Prices are tad high to high for portions (depending on order). Lunch for two c$100 when it should be less than $80 (based on portion and only OK quality).

Conveniently located near the hotel and Grand Central, it is one of the few places open late during Covid (until 11pm), so we went here. Everything was delicious: cocktails, burgers, dessert. Lovely service and clean bathrooms. Will revisit.

Menu items: Pimm’s Cup cocktails, Park Ave burgers (delicious caramelized onions), and skillet Apple pie w/ ice cream.

I usually go to Park Avenue Tavern for lunch, but went there for a late dinner. It's one of the few places in NYC still serving food after 9pm. They had steak and scallops as a special, and the kitchen was extremely accommodating and prepared a special shrimp and scallops dish for me because I don't eat meat. It turned out to be the best scallop dish that I've ever eaten! Served with mashed potatoes and green beans - beyond amazing. Kelly and Ellie were there and took such great care of me as always! They and the entire staff are just the best. You just can't go wrong when you choose Park Avenue Tavern.

it was a very nice place. we made our reservation on the fly but they were able to seat us. it was outdoor and they have heat lamps but the cold air still blew through. it would have been better if they had alcohol there to sort of take your mind off being in the cold. the servers were nice and friendly. the food was okay but it did kind of take a long time to come in. i definitely would return hopefully having indoor seating or in the warmer months.

Another delicious meal at Park Avenue Tavern, as usual. They have a terrific menu with something for everyone - including several great vegetarian options. My servers Oscar and Ellie were just so wonderful and took such great care of me and everyone there. The chocolate chip skillet cookie just the best dessert in the world. I could eat there everyday!

Another AMAZING meal at Park Avenue Tavern. Great selection of outdoor seating with lots of heaters. The salad, Brussels sprouts and salmon were all excellent. And the chocolate chip skillet was just heavenly. My server Ellie was absolutely awesome and the hostess Kelly was so friendly and welcoming - the two of them made certain that I was taken care of at all times. Can't wait to go back!

Park Avenue Tavern is my new favorite restaurant in NYC - especially with their fantastic heated outdoor seating! I started with the Brussels sprouts - which were simply amazing. I then had the quinoa burger with a side of mashed potatoes - just terrific. And I finished with the chocolate chip skillet cookie - the best dessert ever! My server Carter was an absolute rock star! He was super fast, friendly, and helpful. He took such great care of me and everyone there. I plan to go back this week!

Food was excellent - we ordered the Buffalo Dip and French Onion soup as appetizers. For dinner we had burgers, steak frites and grilled cheese w/ tomato soup. All our meals were well prepared and flavorful. Outside was a bit chilly but that’s ok since we were looking for a venue that wasn’t totally enclosed. Had umbrellas and propane heaters. Extra bonus was a big screen TV on the sidewalk to watch the football game!

The food was very underwhelming for the price. We got the wings, tortilla soup, burger, Buffalo dip (I think my friend liked this), and a chicken sandwich. Overall, the food was disappointing and I probably won’t be back.
