I took my niece here for dinner since she just started attending college in NYC and thought it would be a nice place to go . We love NY restaurants and enjoy fine dining . I have to say the biggest disappointment for me was that the service was not at all what I expected . We felt that since it was two women that we were not really attended to , ( even though my bill was close to $500 ) .
The table next to us where two men sat were given their menus right away while I had to ask for ours , the men came after us and were having their appetizers and I still only had my martini and no menu . When I asked for it I was told I thought you would want to sit and have your drink first , that’s ridiculous especially since my niece is 18 and not drinking .
Over all the food was very good and we did like the atmosphere but if I go again I’m taking my husband !

The service was wonderful but the food is certainly overpriced. I expected an amazing food experience because of the price of the dishes but what was served was dishes I could have cooked myself. Nothing as extraordinary as I was expecting unfortunately which was quite disappointing and we left $400 less from the experience.

An awesome experience! The service, and food were amazing! We also got a tour of the famous wine cellar and were blown away by the detail and personal attention from the staff. This is a meal and an experience I will remember for a lifetime.

I used to like Club 21 and it has a history. Dined with my son and we were both ill next morning. Portions were small and my wedge salad and crab cake were drowning in too much dressing and sauce, respectively. My son's escargots and lamb chops were ok but the meal was overpriced, had to signal a waiter every step of the way to get service. Overheard they are usually closed last week of August but not this year- maybe that affected the situation, but I won't be going again.

When is 21 EVER a bad idea? New York's hottest club is 21 and it's got EVERYTHING. Coat check, a dress code (men, please wear a jacket), boxes of matches, oh...and it's got iron jockeys: it's that thing, you know, where you take an iron midget and use him as decor. Had a great time w/ my S/O: 21's consistency is why I go there. Chicken hash was the comfort food I needed – along with 750 ML of Pol Roger – and the profiteroles were there to close out my night. My S/O had the burger, the cheesecake, and, of course half of the aforementioned champagne. Shout-out to Simon. The only thing missing was The Reverend: place just isn't the same without him.

I've been coming to the 21 Club for over a decade and there is nothing quite like this place. Whether I'm meeting a client to close a business deal over drinks/dinner or just entertaining friends and colleagues, I'm always very pleased with the exceptional service, wonderful cuisine and the unique setting at the 21 Club. A New York iconic establishment!

The quality of the food, principally the taste has not recovered since the place reopened following closure for repairs. This is especially true for my favorite steak tartare.
And some of our tux clad servers were indifferent and never smiled.
Sad.

We went there for restaurant week and I am glad it was for restaurant week. I don't think the food worth the regular price and the hype. The lamb Bolognese is tasteless and the chocolate is very dry. I am not sure if it will be better with the regular menu, but if it's the same quality, it's kind of sad. The bread is good and, the service is excellent though.

It was everything I hoped it would be. The location is classic, the decor is charming, the food is second to none, the wine list is to die for. True New York history.

The 21 Club is an awesome place for lunch and on Restaurant Week it was on the top ten for sure. I had the Coq A Vin (chicken dish and the housemade salmon for the first course.

The only drawback is men MUST wear a jacket and if you don't have one they will provide you one. I think they should reconsider at lunch, at at dinner maybe.

I will return to this five star in a future visit to NYC.

The 21 Club is a historic restaurant. The interior has both a traditional lounge area and an unusual downstairs dining room with hundreds of items hanging from the ceiling. It's spacious and comfortable. The food and service are very good. Jackets are required for men. It's a unique dining experience. We were able to take advantage of their Restaurant Week menu which was a good deal.

After doing extensive research on this location, I learned about its history throughout the prohibition era. I was immediately enticed to see what a renowned establishment with such background history had to offer.
The overall setup and ambiance was nice. I appreciate the lounge/bar area. The service was great. However I was very disappointed with the quality of food. My guest and I had the smoked salmon, lamb, truffle Mac and cheese, cream of spinach and the strawberry sundae.
The truffle Mac and cheese had the most flavor which was actually very good. The main courses were sub par. I expected something better from such an establishment. But for the price of restaurant week ($42), I cannot complain but I would not recommend or return to this place.

I could be guest of the restaurant during a summer Restaurant Week, in the bar room.
I loved the table facing the room for both the guests; the ambiance is particular, given by the custom ceiling and the old style furniture.
Lamb bolognese was very well done, said by an italian, and also desserts were amazing. Correct portions, accurate service; I would like to come back again if only it was not so expensive during the rest of the year.
Jacket required for men; air conditioned at a decent level (not too cold).

21 Club is worth viewing alone. The restaurant is stunning and it feels extremely prestigious, but the food did not meet expectations. Dishes were cold and tasteless. I was very surprised by the lack of attentiveness from the wait staff as well. I was in good company so I had a good time but for the money that you are expected to spend there, it was not worth it.

Went for restaurant week lunch. Had a good Manhattan. The Caesar Salad wasn’t bad but I’ve had better. And the rest Is pretty much uneventful. The staff was very helpful and pleasant and made you feel very welcome. I will definitely come back for the ambiance.

We went for Restaurant Week Lunch. The service was impeccable and interior decor was worth visiting by itself. Food was very good and the pricing of wine by glass was $9-10 which was extremely generous. I recommend this place.

We went expecting a special time and we had to wave down the waiter multiple times to get menus, drinks and to order. It was very strange. Wasn’t that busy either. Kind of disappointing over all experience
