Only reason the restaurant receives a few stars is because of the bartender and the waiters. We ordered a Caesar salad on the food network was touted as the best thing I ever ate along with the cheese burger. For $21.00 is was served as a regular our if the bag chopped Romain with tiny crotons which were bagged in China. Some of the Romain was wilted with a sub par dressing. For $21 I expected something much higher in quality not from Walmart.. ohhh Walmart would be better! I asked for a burger medium came out well done and if I tell you there was no flavor.. well for $36.00 they should have at least added salt!!!! The bun was soft a small burger for the price with little cheddar surrounding the burger let us on the side with wilted fries. Save your money, go to Burger King get a whopper and side salad and save $50.00 my recommendation the manager should sit down with the chef and cooks and all do some taste testing and make this $0.99 burger into a truly amazing $36.00 meal! Now when your in a restaurant like this after your appetizer bread or salad and before you serve the main course. I have an idea! “Clean off the table” all and all they probably don’t care as it was full with one time tourist along with business men but we will never go back! Total cost over $200.00

21 Club is my favorite place to eat in NYC. The old school ambiance cannot be beat, the wait staff is always on point, and the food and cocktails never disappoint! Love the Dover Sole which is a staple on the menu. The people watching is also a plus!

My wife and I always drop him into 21 during the Christmas season and enjoy the worlds greatest burger. We have always had Chauncey as our waiter and he is the finest gentleman ever and I am so happy when we see he is helping us. I enjoy his service but mostly his friendship. He is the high standard that makes 21 what it is. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon!

Chicken hash standard always excellent. Lobster disappointing. I love the venue. Maybe just a bad lobster night....

We both ordered the lobster and the food came out ice cold. The amount of time to prepaid the food was longer then expected and clearly the plates sat for a while in the kitchen.

The food was very good indeed, and our waiter was nice, but expensive; we had dinner the following night in another restaurant that was less famous, and yet the food, service, price and ambiance were better.
There is a bit of a snobbish attitude at 21 Club, and although we made a reservation several weeks in advance, we were given a small table for 4 people, with uncomfortable seats and we had to squeeze in a small place, with the table pushed to our chest to leave some room for the waiters to be able to serve.

Great classic food. Caesar salad; chicken hash; tortellini; and filet were all great. Servers are a little pushy, but not too bad. Nice dinner crowd. Was a good pick for anniversary dinner.

We had to get to the theater at 8 across town and had dinner reservations at 630pm. I was concerned that we were cutting it too close but we were seated and served with time to eat by 715pm. The food was delicious, the staff were friendly and attentive. Definitely would recommend. Got to Cyrano at Daryl Roth with time to spare.

Lovely old NYC establishment. A great experience overall. The management needs to take down pre fix pre theatre menu on website. Waiter said they do not do the pre theatre menu during the holidays but we were not the only guests to ask about it. But would definitely return.

Had dinner there before theater. They knew and took great care of us. EXCELLENT service. Have eaten many places in midtown including 2 Michelin 3 stars. 21 Club, one, if not our favorite. They nailed it. A must go to for anyone. We'll be back

We had a disappointing exerience. We have been here before, and always enjoyed it. This time however, it took 25 minutes to seat us, with a reservation! An additional 10 minutes before being greated by our server. Expensive dinner for fair service.

This was our fourth time dining at 21 and once again we were not disappointed. The wait staff is attentive without being overbearing, the atmosphere is lively, and the food and wine are outstanding. We live bringing friends who have never been there before. It’s always a fun evening!

We celebrated a wonderful evening in tribute to my father’s 95th birthday. The service and food were impeccable and we could not have asked for a more celebratory evening filled with nostalgia for the many former special occasions spent in this venerable establishment. While Jack and Charlie are long gone, we think that they would have been pleased with our evening there. Bravo 21.

We enjoyed dinner at 21 Club before a play. The waiter asked if we had time constraints and assured us we would be fine, which we were. The service and food were outstanding! I love the atmosphere of the old things hanging from the ceiling. It was my birthday and they sent over a small desert complete with candle, which was very nice.

May have been the culinary highlight of the week in NYC and we dined at Le Bernadin as well. First visit and we were disappointed only in the much-ballyhooed Ceasar salad. While perfectly fine, it lacked any discernable anchovy-garlic-parmigiana magic we were expecting. Foi Gras terrine was excellent, the tortellini good but ungenerous (we did the Theater Menu) the Coq Au Vin wonderful as long as the too dry chicken meat was scooped up in the gravy/jus and mushrooms. The dessert was wonderful as well.

The dining room and the crowd in attendance made the experience memorable. Chaunce paid attention to our table and those around us and as an unobtrusive, reassuring and extremely pleasant presence.

Good service, and food was good. A bit tight space to eat for us. We were so close to people we could hear their conversations and it was hard to have an intimate date night.

21 remains one of the best experiences in New York dining. The clubby decor and friendly service are great complements to the reliably good food. Don’t go here if you’re looking for anything trendy. Go here for a memorably classic experience.

Unfortunately there was some confusion concerning the availability of our table. Doubly unfortunate was the decibel level of our "neighbors". Your staff took care of the situation immediately and gave us another table.
