 (San Francisco)·Dined on January 1, 2018

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Three of us diner on Thanksgiving 2017. 7:30 reservation. Had to wait and additional 50 minutes for our table.
FAIL.
The food was a set three course menu no beverages for a very high price.
The issue was not the price but the quality of the food. Burnt stuffing and mediocre dry turkey?
FAIL.
Frankly I expect much better from this venerable establishment and have had many wonderful meals here.
I might go back but there are many, many, many other wonderful places in NYC to dine at this price point that actually seem to care what about their customers are eating and plenty that will burn stuffing and dry out a turkey for much, much less$$.

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.
