On accepting the invitation by someone who works there I was honestly a bit 50/50 about what to expect...plus too it was my anniversary and I had not made previous plans so this way a last resort....As soon as I saw the outside of the restaurant I knew I would be pleased but I was pleasantly surprised by welcoming friendly staff as if they knew me .....it was a blast. You have got to go. If you have a contact like I did , it over ,it's the only place you'd want to go.

The food (and drink) were excellent, exactly what I had hoped for in a restaurant of this caliber.
However, I had a 5pm reservation. We were asked to wait for a few minutes in the lounge after they confirmed the reservation . A waiter came by and offered us lounge menus. We said that we were waiting for our dinner table. He asked my name.
He offered us drinks.. we got them and then sat there as other people were seated for dinner. The waiter asked my name again and said that he would put it on the dinner bill. I finally queried the waiter at 5:30 as I watched more people being seated.
The maitre'd came over, asked my name again and we were finally seated in a near empty dining room.
Food was delicious, but there was no need for the delay and my name is not that hard to remember.

We had to send back our stake back after we already had told our waiter how we want it. The kitchen took long in preparing it took to long that we decide it to take it to go

I was thrilled to finally eat at 21 Club. The service was excellent. The martinis hit the spot. The carrot soup was creamy and tasty. The filet was cooked MR just as requested. The mac and cheese was devoured. Thank you.

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!
