Food is always delicious; biggest change is that the restaurant has changed its policy and allows tipping; obviously New York’s culture got to the management. I have no moral objection to tipping, it’s just that, once more, we all need to remember the coat check!
Great food, and there non-alcoholic cocktails are fantastic
Service was excellent, location very convenient, beautiful venue. Food is not at one star michelin level. I have been to many starred restaurants and this one is not standing out. Presentation is pretty simple and flavors have nothing extremely surprising
Love the modern space and attention to detail. Service was perfect and food was delicious.
The food is great. You have to eat the bread and butter - it is so delicious! Great ambience too!
The food is extraordinary, the service outstanding, and to make it perfect - it’s quiet enough to talk and bright enough to see! Perfect place for a romantic date or to meet a friend to chat. But it’s not a quiet in terms of energy - there is a nice buzz of excitement in the air.
so nice to find delicious food in a quiet space where you can actually talk, in a convenient midtown location!
The food & the service were great. We just ordered the beef tartare, smoked salmon (excellent!) and potato + parsley soup (also good!). The skate and pork cheek entrées were ok.
We had the set lunch, which was a really good deal ($38 for 2-course). My only complain is that the portions are (strangely) too big. Always thought fine dining should be more of a delicate experience. But otherwise, everything else was great!
Food and service were good, and the menu was interesting (particularly the tasting menus). The a la carte menu was surprisingly limited and I was never able to shake the feeling of being in a train station. It's a good restaurant - it just didn't feel particularly special given the prices.
Excellent ,food, service , attention to every detail to make for a memorable dining experience
After dining at Franzen and Gondolen in Stockholm, and ACME in NYC, I was psyched to try Agern-but I came away disappointed. Maybe I picked the wrong 2 courses-Artic Char - perfect medallion, I sort of got the "dirt", but the buttermilk yogurt-like pool lacked flavor. The veg entree Butternut Squash medallions should have been 3 not 2 for $38, adding honey to an already sweet squash made this dish wander too far from savoury. The Quince etc rice pudding was a mistake on a plate for $18 - one note-SWEET, overwhelmed everything including the koji. The tasting menu may be a better representation of the chef's creativity.
Incredibly crafted dishes that delight visually and deliver a wonderful balance playing off flavor and texture. A wine list with undiscovered treasures and very hard to get small production in a friendly range of pricing. A gem of a place.
This was the greatest disappointment of any restaurant I ever had!
There is nothing good I can say about the food the service or the ambience and would recommend my friends not to go there even if they happen to be at central station
I didn´t succeed to get a table at Noma in Copenhagen. But this was a splendid alternative! Fantastic Scandinavian food. I will absolutely come back!
Unusual and delicious choices - always a hit with my guests. I completely rely on Agern to serve the best Northern European menu and everybody who comes here is blown away. The cuisine is unique, always beautifully presented, and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. I thoroughly recommend it for business and for meeting friends. Brilliant location - makes Grand Central that bit more special
Tucked away in Grand Central Station, a lovely food experience awaits the diner. Great food, very attentive service, accommodating to allergies.
A great restaurant all around. The food is imaginative but not strange - good flavor and texture combinations. The guinea fowl is a favorite. The noise level is mostly moderate except from a few after work groups. Table spacing is good but still expect to hear giggles from the next table watching funny cat videos.
Food is Extremely salty. Service is not Michelin star quality. Very disappointed!
Absolutely amazing. The tasting list was excellent and the service was superb.
Some tables were too close and the chair at the end where we were seated was sticking out too much. I would have asked for a different table for 2 - but did not - because I could see all were taken.
However, the food makes up for it.
The staff was very professional and knowledgeable about the food and the presentation was outstanding.
As a Dane, I was so proud to see Klaus Meyer's masterpiece and will return next time in NYCity.
Agern is truly a gem in the city with the best gourmet Nordic cuisine and amazing service. They also have incredible and impressive wine list from local winery to compliment with the international dishes. A star is very well deserved.
The tasting menu was full of surprises, and overall quite delicious. I'm not sure I would put it in the same league as Osteria Francescana or Mugaritz or 11 Madison, but it's very good. Whether it's worth the large cost depends on your income. Very expensive, but one can see where the money goes, in the beautiful ingredients and the labor-intensive presentation.
Food was excellent as was the service. Ambiance less so, given the high high price, no cloth tablecloth, none of the extravagance I expected again for a two hundred dollar meal fee and one hundred dollar wine fee.
A nice restaurant in a good location. We had the Christmas lunch special which was very good. The portions are rather small, so if you have a big appetite this may not be the place for you.
Find it on the expensive side.
Went there with my two sons loving great food. Fab food. Great tasting menu and good athmosphere.
Food was great. Service was not up to Michelin star standard.
Every single time I come here it blows me away. The cocktails are lovely, the food is incredibly thoughtful, and the price can not be beat. Will keep coming back!
Great food! Always
Agern was top notch in every aspect. My wife got the Lobster and I had the Hen. Forgive me if I don't remember all the details of every dish, but needless to say, both dishes were unique with both ingredients and presentation. I am really trying to think of something that they need to improve, but I can't. highly recommended!
Agern exceeded my expectations for creative Scandinavian coupled with robustly sized portions. It was excellent!
Excellent service; wonderful food. A must visit!
Outstanding meal with knowledgeable servers and sommelier. We had the short tasting menu. Such care taken with the food. Wow. The chocolate coffee truffle was perfection.
Nice Location, superb food and excellent service, unfortunately a bit cold at our place in the middle of the restaurant
The food was amazing; the service outstanding,
Very creative dishes. I could feel some korean, Chinese influence to dishes which is good.
It was almost impossible to find out where it is in grand central station with address and google map. Polluted air in station also some concern but could not feel in restaurant.
Agern is a solid restaurant for those in the Grand Central area and who enjoy Nordic cuisine. I came for lunch and enjoyed good portions and delicious flavors. The service was efficient and less invasive which is how I prefer things. The standouts were the warm bread, arctic Char, pork belly, and rice pudding.
The food here is excellent in its earthy flavors and fresh combinations. Very thoughtfully presented with unique drinks and careful service. The best of upscale casual.
Amazing food and staff! Would recommend to anyone.
Agern has become a favourite - near my office, easy for others to get to, wonderful food and helpful staff.
