Dress code is enforced. Service excellent...Food terrific somewhat pricey...glass of Pinot Grigio was mediocre...waiter spent some time giving us the history of all the memorabilia and toys on the ceiling...it was fun.

Loved it. Yes it is a pricy place but compare to some other places it was definitely reasonable. Food was delicious, the service was perfect, the actual place was so interesting and unique. We had a fantastic time and will definitely come back. Oh one thing, you need a jacket! I didn't know and they gave me one, which i am not a fan of but there are rules and this is my fault for not knowing

We booked a table online at OpenTable, couldn't get in till 10:15pm at night. We happened to be close to the restaurant so we popped in & asked if they could get us in sooner & they did! Very accommodating! Great people watching, warm cozy feel! Great wine and after dinner drinks! It was a fun atmosphere at the bar following dinner! I would highly recommend.

Overpriced, overrated and unimpressed. The “famous” 21 Burger was average. The apps of Foie Gras, Octopus and Smoked Salmon were small and bland. Never again

Waiting for over 30 minutes to be seated while entertaining out of town guests is not cool. When we arrived at the restaurant we were told that there would be a ten minute wait, but that morphed into better than 30 minutes with no apology. Sad, because it's a restaurant that my wife and I frequent from time to time.

As a big fan of the movie WALL STREET I finally got the chance to see 21 for myself. And it did not disappoint. Instead, having experienced its unique flair first hand makes it a sure thing that I will come back as soon as possible.

This past Saturday, my girlfriend and I went to 21 Club for dinner. Although I had gone once before and really enjoyed it, this time was even better. The food, drinks, and service were excellent. The 21 Club is particularly unique in that the staff goes out of it way to make you feel comfortable. It's an experience I definitely recommend.

21 survives long after most of its competitors at least in part because of its high standards. No element disappoints—great food—iconic decor—PT 109 is above the bar—fantastic service. Here I can eat where not only my parents one ate—but also my grandparents. And 21 is not remodeled into unrecognizability. Highly recommended.

Easy to see why 21 occupies such a unique place in the New York restaurant world. The food is competent, the service knowledgable and friendly, and the ambience is electric. This is a place which will somehow adapt to everyone's needs in an upper-end establishment - good for business, for talking, for looking, for a date, for a celebration.

 (Richmond)·Dined on November 11, 2017

One of the "old guard" restaurants in NYC, it's one of those restaurants and bars that I think everyone should go to at least once. The bar was very clubby and quite busy, and when we arrived for our dinner reservation, we were given the option of taking the table right way, or having a drink in the bar, which is what we opted for. The staff was extremely polite and attentive - my only complaint that turned me off upon arrival was the strong smell of Lysol at he entry and throughout the bar that really didn't dissipate the entire time we were there. But, the martini served was a very substantial pour, and the waiter continually brought out servings of bar snacks when depleted, so we quickly forgot the smell. Once at our table, the waitstaff was accomodating to our needs and the food delish - the only complaint was the wine I ordered was not the year the sommelier brought, and had I not noticed it, he would not have mentioned it. When I did, he quickly made an excuse about the bottles in stock keeping up with the printed menu, which I totally get, but I do expect to be informed when a change in vintage occurs rather than just assuming I'll accept it (perhaps because I may not be informed??) Otherwise, it was an expensive, but lovely dining experience.

21 Club is totally overpriced. The least expensive item on the menu is a $36 hamburger! We had a lovely time with friends who we hadn't seen in a long time. The ambiance is really nice. The noise level is conducive to quiet conversation. The wait staff were friendly and helpful. The food was above average. But don't go to 21 unless you are prepared to spend. The bill was $300 for each couple. Definitely not worth it.

Nothing not to love at this restaurant. Old NYC. The fun toys hanging from the ceiling keep this place from being too uptight. So much history and our amazing waiter Philipp filled us in on a lot of history filled stories. The tartar was perfect along with the chocolate souffle. They sat us next to each other, which we prefer vs face to face. It was a beautiful night. More of a mature crowd, there were some families, but not any strictly young adult groups, which we were fine with, you can find that at pretty much any other location in NYC and this place is definitely more about old NYC, socially, service , quality, etc. Loved it

We were served in a timely manner and all staff were kind and courteous. The meal was delicious. We had the pre theatre pre fixe option, deviled eggs were quite good, so was the soup of the day (minestrone). The short ribs were delicious. The rice pudding was different than I'm used to but also quite nice but bigger than expected. Overall nice experience.
