I love this place. I used to meet my friend here once a month because it was close to Grand Central and super convenient for her. Hands down, I come back over and over for their cookie skillet dessert. It’s the best. Their tavern burger is delicious as well.

The limited menu was great, but the servers needed to be a bit more involved. I think they have very few working due to the circumstances, but we still need to feel the appreciation for supporting the business.

We were disappointed with the drinks, specifically the white Sangria and the spicy Margarita.

Here we go again. The Tavern is the regular lunch place for my friend and I, so no surprises re the noise, atmosphere and reliability of good food. This time, we ordered the grilled chicken sandwich which was delicious - would have preferred the 'bun' be either a baguette or a ciabatta roll rather than the soft bun given (is it a pretzel bun?) It's served with kettle chips, so what's not to love? Confess to another restaurant's fries - at the Pret Mediterranean nearby - which were among the best I've ever had. But kettle chips here hit the spot.

I had an early dinner at Park Avenue Tavern, and it was such a treat. I had the crab cake, the house-made quinoa-veggie burger with mashed potatoes, and the skillet cookie. Everything was delicious, especially the dessert. The service was terrific and the place has a terrific, energetic vibe. One of the best dining options near Grand Central.

I accidentally made a reservation for lunch at 12:30 am (not pm), which was totally my fault. but why did the site allow me to make a reservation at 12:30 am????? why didn't the restaurant notice? when i got there for lunch at 12:30 pm, they didn't have a reservation for me (obviously) but were so nasty. I would never go back.
