'21' will be closed through the end of February for unexpected building maintenance. We plan to reopen the main restaurant and lounge bar in mid-March. If you have a reservation or private event booked with us, we will be reaching out shortly to you to assist in rescheduling and finding an alternative venue.

Attentive service, fine American cuisine, a Grand Award-winning wine list and unique, historical surroundings set ‘21’ apart. Once a glamorous speakeasy, today '21' is one of the most celebrated restaurants in New York City. In addition to our two restaurants, the Bar Room and 'Upstairs', this four-story townhouse features ten private party rooms ideal for celebrations, meetings and banquets, including the legendary Prohibition-era Wine Cellar.

Reserved this restaurant months in advance so that I can celebrate my mom's birthday. She was traveling to New York from Korea. What I got in return for my early planning was an abrupt email that the restaurant will be closed on the day of my reservation. No compensation for the inconvenience caused whatsoever. They should have at least provided some kind of discount for future visit, etc. I already told my mom that we will be going to this restaurant where almost all former presidents have dined and that it will be fantastic. Mom's birthday has been ruined. Very disappointing.

After 10 years, we traveled from SF to NYC for the old classic school historical experience of 21 club. Starting from the matridees, who had three different staff asking us what is our name and our reservation without communicating to each other at all, then the 6 feet white hairs likely middle eastern in charge matridee finally told us there is nothing he can do. We asked if he got any change to read our special condition in Open Table, he shuck his shoulder and said there is no opening except the bar, or upstairs. I truly want my husband have a special experience after such a long recovery, so I paid this “ white hair” 6 feet Charge matradee cash under the table, so he is willing to arrange a table against the bar for us. It is really sad how we try hard to fly cross the country to bring some of nice old memory for him and 21 club become so commercialized and unhumanized ....

Another fantastic dining experience. Service was efficient and attentive as always and food was delicious. Particularly notable dishes include tuna tartare, crab cake, chicken hash, burger and truffle Mac n cheese. Looking forward to a return soon.

We knew we were in trouble when the doorman couldn’t find the door and the waiter asked if we wanted to be seated after waiting 10 minutes. We didn’t get the specials just what do you want to drink? Bread came with something strange to put on it and it was several days old. For starters my wife had smoked salmon which was not cooked or smoked and sent it back. I had the worst escargot which wasn’t. My wife had a salad for the main course an I had the duck which was under cooked, cold and I would say not a duck or if it was it was a very big one per the large slices. Service was slow and sloppy, but we eventually got desert which was ok, hard to mess that up. Living in NYC this is the worst we have seen living on maybe their fame for making a movie there and all the junk on the ceiling. Cheers and Happy New Year 2018- never again at the 21.

Meal was disappointing. Caesar salad offered without anchovies. Realize nobody does tableside Caesar anymore but the presentation was poor. Table bread was grilled sandwich bread. Porterhouse for two should be sizzling on the platter - was just warm. Soufflé was presented but I had to explain to the adjacent table how to open the top and pour in the sauce - same issue with mine. Service was attentive without being sophisticated. Granted it was New Years Eve and I expect they were trying for three seatings in lieu of two but sadly wasn’t worth the price.

I love 21 Club. It has a feel of country club and city sophistication. Indulging wine list and can't go wrong with the menu.

It was my first time at 21 Club and I have to say it lives up to the hype. I went for the classics, a Caesar salad and their creamy chicken hash, which were both lovely and flavorful. I was too full for dessert but I do hope to come back for what looked like a mouthwatering tomahawk or some other choice beef cut to share---or maybe this burger I've heard so much about. The service was excellent and the staff attentive. I especially liked how each person I asked had something to add to the story of this historical establishment in the city.

We were visiting NYC for our wedding anniversary, and we went to lunch here, since my bridal shower was held there, thought it would be nice to revisit. I was disappointed at the service, the waiter never came by to check on us and never even asked how things were, very disappointed.

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
