    Very good except for the couple sitting next to us. The young man, in his early 30’s, had no filter and no decibel monitor. I realize it is not up to staff to intervene or intercede but he and his dinner mate made our experience a bit shy of wonderful.

    They don't actually honor requests in reservation. We specifically asked for an indoor table and we're forced to sit outside by a draft in December. And then the waiter was hard to catch and even disappeared when we finally gave our credit cards. It took almost 10 mins for him to return with them.

    Lovely pub within walking distance of Grand Central. Attentive staff and welcoming atmosphere. Old world atmosphere that isn't stuffy but more comfortable to be within. I will definitely return.

    I wondered why this place was always crowded and after eating here, I know why. The menu is somewhat limited, but what’s on it is done very well! Best burrata I’ve had in years. Cobb salad fresh & tasty. I wish they would expand their menu, but This is a very satisfying neighborhood go-to.

    Park Avenue Tavern is my favorite restaurant in NYC. They have a terrific selection of seating: dining room, bar, patio and street. They have a wonderful menu, with something for everyone: burgers, salads, sandwiches, flatbreads, small plates, assorted entrees, specials and side dishes. And they're all amazing. The kitchen is exceptionally accommodating, and will always prepare a dish any way that you request. The entire staff is absolutely phenomenal. They go out of their way to provide every guest with the perfect dining experience, whether you're a regular or it's your first time there. And they have the best dessert in the New York City - their signature chocolate chip cookie skillet. They open at 11am and serve all day, always making it a convenient option. I just can't say enough great things about Park Avenue Tavern. I could eat there every day!

    Our server was phenomenal—I wish I could remember her name. The food was great. The spinach dip was a huge surprise. I'm not usually a fan, but this was way more than your typical spinach dip. It was full of spinach, artichokes, parmesan and served with a delicious flatbread. Every time I go here I get one of the burgers. It's a safe bet and always a good choice. The location, the service, and the quality of food and drink make this a perennial winner for a nice, casual meal.

    We were seated promptly. The waiter took our order quickly as well. The tables are spaced closely together making normal conversation tones impossible during a busy lunch time. I was overcharged for my drinks and pointed this out to the waiter who responded by giving me a corrected bill showing the $8 subtracted from the total. The food was well-prepared and showed creativity although the outside of my salad bowl felt sticky as though it was not probably washed or someone’s hands were not clean.

    Unfortunately I didn’t really enjoy my experience here. To begin with, my sandwich was cold and not warm like I expected it to be. I hated that the bun was warm but meat and cheese were cold. I also asked for sweet potato fries instead of the side it came with, which ended up being extra. It was upsetting when we got the bill and noticed that we were charged for water and extra for the fries. I wouldn’t have cared if the food had been good and if the additional costs had been stated earlier.
