Park Avenue Tavern Ratings and Reviews
Park Avenue Tavern exceeded my expectations in every way. It was a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion as the staff was very attentive and made extra efforts to make the dinner memorable. The food is incredible. My boyfriend and I really enjoy sharing different options from the creative small plates, salads, and flatbreads. Note that they have changing specials as well. I look forward to dining at Park Avenue Tavern in the future very soon. The bar scene is vibrant, and there is also downstairs bar and dining if you prefer a quieter spot.
They got rid of the best app on the menu; the French dip. Even with that, it's a great pub with amazing food and a great atmosphere. It is by far the best place for lunch or a drink in the area and that is why it's crowded all the time.
My family had brunch at Park Avenue Tavern on a recent Saturday, and it was great! I had the crab benedict, which was one of the best I've ever had. Very light and flavorful. The bloody mary was delicious, and included the perfect amount of spice. My sons both had burgers, which they loved. And we topped off our meals with the chocolate chip cookie pie. Delicious! The service was attentive, and the location is convenient to Grand Central Station. We'll definitely return!
I enjoyed my 1st visit here - (so conveniently located near Grand Central) for a nice & relaxing business lunch. I had the tomato bisque and ribeye sliders, (a perfect combination) and quite delicious. Our table was at the front window on Park Ave, and felt super-comfy, sunny and pleasant. Overall a perfect place for a casual business lunch or a get together with friends. Highly recommended.
If only they offered happy hour.... Rating would have been higher. Food and ambiance were very good, especially for the neighborhood. Service friendly but not attentive enough and very slow on drinks. 1.5 drinks pp drove our bill over 50 pp despite that three of us shared 1 appie, had low priced meals (1 burger, 2 salads) had no dessert/coffee. Excellent cobb salad and good burger, but not 50$ worth.
This wasn't my first trip to Park Ave Tavern and it most definitely won't be my last. PAT is a standout in midtown east - a refreshing reprieve from the vast disappointment of overpriced, mediocre food in the neighborhood. It is part of In Good Company Hospitality Group ( The Bungalow Bar; Refienry Rooftop; Parker and Quinn; Trademark And others). They seem to have the authority on hospitality, like they give a copy of Danny Meyer's 'Setting the Table' out to all their new hires. It's up the street from grand central so expect a nice happy hour crowd which, nicely enough clears up a bit on weeknights after around 8pm. PAT is always consistent in both food and service. Anytime I've walked in I've been greeted by friendly hellos from security, hosts and busy servers. I had made a reservation and I was seated right away even without my other party who was a short block from the restaurant. We were given water glasses right away and our waiter immediately came over to see if I needed anything. When she sat we were given just enough time to catch up before asked what we would like to drink. Never had to wait too long for our beverages as it seemed the servers, bartenders and hosts worked in a collaborative way , ensuring a positive experience for all guests. We weren't rushed to order anything as it took some time for my friend and I to decide. Ultimately, we went with the Fried green tomato flatbread and the charred octopus. Good combination as the fried green tomato flatbread was a little on the heavier side- came with burrata and grated cheese. The charred octopus was perfect with the crispy potatoes chorizo and herb aioli. In the middle of our meal between dinner and dessert we were approached by a handsome, young man named Chris, who I assume is the manager. He asked us how everything was and made sure we were having a good time - he let us know to ask him should we need anything all. Go to Park Ave Tavern for good food, drinks and outstanding hospitality.
Food and drinks were delicious! Met my cousin on a weeknight for dinner right after work, the place was packed, so I'm glad I was able to make a reservation. The bar area was jam-packed which overflowed to where we were sitting. It was so loud in there that I couldn't hear everything my cousin or the waiter was saying and in fact had to yell or speak really loudly for most of my conversation. I'd recommend sitting far from the bar or coming later in the evening if going for a weeknight dinner. Definitely a good find in the midtown east area!
Had been to this restaurant once last year and thought it was great and needed an Easter brunch place in this neighborhood. well, loved it even more this time and so did our guest.
ate too much; but not the restaurant's fault. will definitely be back, especially proximity to gct.
Turkey sandwich (on menu) was supermarket cold-cut fare....2 of the 3 of us had our plates removed the second we put our fork down...Squeezed 3 of us adults onto a table of four befitting teens. Request to change was greeted with a "there may be one downstairs" response....conveniently located but not worth a return trip...
Was invited to go to the Park Avenue Tavern the day before for lunch, and after having a great meal, served by a very friendly waitress... I decided to book a business lunch there.
Same great service, food, and overall atmosphere to have a business lunch. Not quiet, but not too loud whereas you can't hear one another.
They have great burgers, salads, and fries. (what I had ordered so far). Will report on more fare when I go back... which will be soon.
Definitely a "gem" in the area.
