What you would expect of an old time NYC classic. Pre Fixe Dinner is the best deal in town. They went the extra mile for my wife’s birthday after simply leaving a OpenTable note about it. Will be coming back again and again every time we are in the City.

My wife and I chose 21 to celebrate a number of special occasions that all happened within a month of each other, and we decided to treat ourselves. All I can say is excellent meal, service, atmosphere, ... everything. It was our first time, and we were treated like long-time patrons by everyone up to the manager, who came by at the end to see if everything was up to our expectations. If you want the experience of dining at one of a very small handful of well-known long-time NYC icons, the 21 Club does not disappoint.

Always love the atmosphere and the treatment here. The drinks are always very well made and huge, but expensive. We had the prix fixe again. It was good. The Caesar had a little too much dressing on it. The salmon was an adequate sized portion. The wild rice was a lovely base and very tasty. The cheesecake and the chocolate tart were a good size and very smooth and delicious

Like the Statue of Liberty belongs to New York City, so does a visit of mine to 21 Club every time I come to town. Needless to say, every time I enjoy this most iconic club it reminds me of the good old days when 'Wall Street' was my favorite movie. Having the waiter remember my favorite drink, even though my last visit had been three months ago, is just as awesome as the food and the whole environment of this remarkable venue. Way to go, Club 21, and see you again soon!

The head waiter was not very friendly, I guess because we were tourists but the rest of the wait staff was wonderful. The food was delicious and the restaurant was very classic and what I expected. I had always wanted to go to the 21 club and I’m glad on my first NYC visit we tried it. The noise level was louder than expected but still pleasant.

It’s a very expensive special occasion restaurant for me and I loved it. I had Filet Mignon and friend had Dover Sole. Perfectly cooked and tasty food with a friendly and helpful waiter. We were going to a play and food came promptly giving us time for dessert. I gave it 3 stars for value because it was very, very expensive but I would go back again.

We were seeing Harry Potter parts 1 and 2 and needed a quick meal. I was a bit stressed as to whether we had enough time, but the staff were wonderful and served the three courses very quickly.

Food was beautifully prepared - good plain food, rather than pushing any boundaries. I had a salmon on a bed of wild rice - beautiful. The tomato soup was good as well.

It was interesting to eat at a place with a long history and staff were friendly.

This icon of New York has seen its best days. I was kind of shocked that the restaurant was empty at lunchtime on a Monday. The reason I had selected this restaurant was I was taking a dear friend to lunch for his 75th birthday. Despite being notified ahead of time of the special occasion nothing was done to make it feel special, no free cocktail, no free dessert basically nothing. And because the restaurant was so empty we felt uncomfortable with so many wait staff standing at attention staring at us. So disappointing and so expensive. I would not recommend going here, especially to celebrate a special occasion.

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.
