What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
9.3

Gramercy Tavern is an incredible restaurant. But you already know that. The bar is the move you want to make here, and you want to make it often.

Ratings 9.0-9.8:If the 8.5-9.0s are the restaurants you’ll frequent for more than just special occasions, the 9.0-9.8s are the all time great restaurants of their city. Restaurants that will be around 20 years from now, assuming the Earth is still around.

Gramercy is always good. The menu is was way too heavy on the fish choices and not a ton of varity for the main courses (they had Sea Bass, Striped Bass and Black Bass). I'll keep going back.

Beautiful restaurant. However there was a couple with a screaming crying child and they did nothing about it for over 40 minutes.

The food was delicious and the wait staff was extremely friendly and helpful with suggestions.

The Beef Tartare, Tilefish, and Bakewell Tart were all excellent dishes.

The price-fixe menu is reasonably priced for this type of fine dining restaurant, especially considering that gratuity is included (this is a non-tipping establishment).

We sat in the back room after passing by extraordinary floral arrangements. Our waiter Tyler was knowledgeable and personable. All of the staff were polite and moved gracefully. We enjoyed the spring pea soup, salad with cured artic char, and pork schnitzel. Pudding was an unexpected surprise. We took Tyler’s suggestion and we were delighted we did. We will return.

Too hot. If you can’t air condition a fancy restaurant then price yourself like a diner. Seriously. I was embarrassed by Gramercy Tavern — when I should have been proud to entertain my guests. Not OK. It’s no excuse that it’s a hot day.

We heard so much positive about GT we should have been a little skeptical. We met old friends there for brunch. The welcome and service were amazing. The place is lovely if noisy. Sadly, the food was expensive, the portions small and the taste unremarkable. Perhaps it was an off day. We were sad because we really liked everyone from the restaurant with whom we interacted. But based on this experience and the substantial cost for little food, we won't go back.

The restaurant includes the top in the price. We didn’t know who our waiter was. We ordered things that didn’t come. Then when we asked where they were, other waiters were visibly irritated. At one point, one said “oh I’ll figure it out”. But we were being friendly! We repeatedly asked what they put down, eg some vegetable with something for the table—we still have no idea what it was. All of this undercut our experience. We wouldn’t go back. Too many other great restaurants in NY!

We had a wonderful lunch, with 3 out of 4 lunches delicious (and the fourth good), the ambiance great, and the service absolutely perfect! We’ve had dinner there several times as well, and it’s one of our favorite restaurants. The prices are fairly high, but include the tip, so it’s OK. Definitely a restaurant to love!

First rate from door to table. Casual elegance with knowledgeable, warm waitstaff. The prix fixe is top drawer. Tip - somebody in your party should order the cheese course for dessert because it’s ample. Just love this place.

This was a phenomenal, quintessential NY dining experience. We had lunch, and it was elegant and delightful. The wines we had were unique varietals we had not tried before, and they were terrific. All of the food was great. The tart we had for dessert was aesthetically beautiful, and tasted like a dream. We are glad we got to experience this restaurant while in NY.

for us, this experience was very disappointing. We were so happy to finally get a table and then we were surprised by the poor quality of the food. The 3rd course was so bad that we returned it, the main course was switched from beef to duck without any upfront notice - we did not book the „surprise menu“ but the saisonal tasting for 179$ a person. The desert was not fine cuisine at all, just whip cream with - not fresh - strawberries. We really wonder how this place can be so popular, we find it overrated and overpriced. The waiter was nice though and took the 3rd course from our bill, still this experience was not worth the money and the calories.

Overall, everything was on-point w/ the Seasonal Tasting Menu w/ wine pairing, though Gramercy Tavern feels like it lost a bit of “pizzazz” from yrs past...food well-prepared (albeit several dishes were a bit salty), service (professional, though a bit “mechanical”), wines (well-paired w/ dishes), atmosphere elegant yet “homey” (though the a/c wasn’t working well, especially during pre-dinner drinks in the Tavern area!). Overall, still a great dining experience & always a NYC Classic!

Should include the burger in the fine dining area. The overall menu was a bit restrictive which is why I only gave 4 out of 5 stars. Outside of food my dining experience was exceptional.

At the time of reconfirming I was able to secure a later dinner time which was very nice. We were celebrating my friends birthday, but I had not ordered a cake. The wait staff overheard my wishing her Happy Birthday and they included a Birthday cake with our desserts. Very thoughtful. Also, I love fine dining with no tipping.
