The best of old school NY. Everyone treated like a prince. Food is good, drinks are better, the service is better yet and the experience is the BEST

I usually get to 21 once a year. It is a very special restaurant and the staff is professional and very attentive. Other than certain signature dishes, the menu is regularly changed and it NEVER disappoints.

I’ve been going to 21 for 30 years. I love 21. I had my 30th & 40th birthdays there. And my rehearsal dinner. I love The staff, the ambiance, the history.
But Thursday night was not good. A major disappointment.
My friend & I ordered a romaine salad and out came clunky bowls with brown-ish chunks of romaine in what we agreed was a “fishy, foul-smelling” vinaigrette.
Then my friends lamb chops arrived. They even LOOKED bad. Not the large, succulent lamb chops we’ve had before but skinny and REALLY GRAINY chops. Tough to chew.
My steak tartare was so-so. Arrived without toast points and cold, limp potatoes.
All in all, a bad night at 21.
As my friend asked, Would you go back again after that meal?

Defintely a special occasion place with a feel of old NYC. The captain and waiters are lovely. The sommelier was not knowledgable at all and the portion of the wine list with remant bottles that are a good value was entirely sold out leading us to be upsold on wine. The food is extremely expensive but it was good. A nice night at a legendary place but not a go to for a regular Saturday night out.

As always, the 21 Club did not disapoint! It was as good as it was 10 years ago when we first went. It is my husbands favorite restaurant in NYC and we love when we are in town and have a special occasion to go. It is pricey,so it is definitely special. But, the food and service are phenomenal!

We took my father here for his birthday and we asked if we can get a tour of the wine cellar and the maitre d' told us after dinner he would be more than happy to show us. Well by the time we were done the restaurant was almost empty and the maitre d' was gone. So we asked to speak to the manager, he comes over and said no more tours in a rude fashion. We did not even want the full tour just for my dad to see the cellar and this manager couldn't spare 2 secs of his time. The food was great but customer service and hospitality was horrible! Plenty of other better places to go in the city where you can an overall great experience

My main dish was served immediately after it was ordered . Left me with the feeling of being rushed. My food however was very good despite the fact it was made ahead . My creme brûlée’s was a little too chilled . I didn’t get the warmth on the top cool on the bottom feeling. Was a little disappointed I. The dessert . I would however absolutely return as I have many many times .

I know it has a reputation as being a classy, New York City institution, but the downstairs restaurant was empty, the carbon monoxide alarm went off for about a full minute and no one apologized, the waiter was disinterested and sarcastic (this was the pre-theatre pri-fixe menu) and almost nasty. If it weren't for the bus staff that were helping the waiters, I think I would have stiffed him. I'll never go back. The ambience is touristy and cheap, with red checkered tablecloths that are not quaint but just dated and kitschy (and not in a good or ironic way).

An American classic that is still at the top of its game. Their soups are always wonderful. Today’s parsnip soup was superb, as were the blue cheese ravioli and the Cobb salad.

Came for birthday dinner, while there are a million more other options... I wanted something classic, while you may not find smoke machines or “modern” innovation here you do find service and the preservation of a former glamorous New York.

My children and I love everything about this restaurant. The steak tartare rivals that of restaurants in Paris. The wait staff treats us like royalty. Yes, it is old fashioned,but that’s the charm of it — a dark, cozy speakeasy where Bogey proposed to Bacall. Love it!

I hadn't been to the 21 Club in 30 years, and I'm glad some things don't change. We sat in the Bar Room, and we had a delicious old fashioned dinner, Caesar salad and a 21 Burger. Everything was good, the service friendly , and the ambience clubby and comfortable, and NOT NOISY. All in all it was a really great experience, and I'll definitely go back and not wait 30 years.

The staff were very gracious and the wine sommelier was very knowledgeable. And of course, food was excellent.
Nice to see a traditional place still be quality and not touristy.
