What Insiders Are Saying
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.
We both had the lunch pre fix and all of it was absolutely delicious , the waiters were very attentive we were never rushed .
Excellent all around
Everything was good except food is a bit salty
The food was excellent, the service was the best I have ever experienced. Tge atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming.
There is a reason why Gramercy Tavern continues to be one of the top dining destinations in NYC. In addition to great food, they have a wine list that includes plenty of great bottles for under $100, as well as bottles for much more. The hospitality included policy is also very nice and takes the guesswork out of that part of the experience. The service is on par with any restaurant with the usual tipping policy, which suggests that their approach hasn't hindered the servers' work ethic. An all-around wonderful night out.
Overall dining experience was great. One thing I would like to comment is that the staff was more like robots. I don't see the hospitality like Danny Meyer mentioned in his book. Hospitality focus on 2 way between guest and staff where both parties connected each other. But I just didn’t see this time.
Very good service and an incredibly high price tag for very average food.
My new favorite
Loved every part of it including the differences from front to back. Great staff, service and food.
Everything is so well put together! Great food service, welcoming vibes! Will definitely come back!
We had a delightful experience. Having been to Gramacy Tavern previously quality, innovation, excellence was expected and delivered. My only complaint was that the wait person assigned to out table could have been more attentive. He seemed preoccupied. Otherwise, everyone who serviced out able was fabulous. Looking forward to my next vist.
Unusual and delicious tasting menu and extremely helpful staff and sommelier. Our favorite restaurant meal this year.
I went to celebrate a birthday and the waiter was very attentive, entertaining and took excellent care of us. He went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect wine to go with the perfect meal!
We were back for my wife's birthday. Even though we are at Gramercy Tavern several times a year (dining room and tavern) this was treated by your staff as a special occasion. Elizabeth Eubanks came over to our table shortly after we arrived, and returned several times to check on us. She made sure that everything was perfect. All food was outstanding, as were our drinks. The birthday desert with candle was a very nice touch. Gramercy Tavern and Union Square Cafe are our "go to" destinations for special occasions and often without a special occasion when we just feel like being in familiar surroundings and knowing that food and drink will be outstanding.
Excellent service, food outstanding as were the adult beverages. Waiters were friendly and easy to talk to. We were there for my wife’s birthday and enjoyed our veggie dinner.
Went for lunch. The food is still pretty great! I think the appetizer options were more exciting than the entrees. I really enjoyed my taglatelle appetizer. The service was friendly and welcoming, but not as ridiculously great as the last time I was here a few years ago for dinner. Would definitely still come back though.
The most fantastic meal at the most fantastic restaurant. We are foodies, but this surpassed all of our expectations. We were here to treat our friends from Italy — they request coming here every time they are in NYC. We love this place. And we especially love the server: Moma!!!
Very lovely restaurant. I like that there is no tipping. Waiter was extremely pleasant. Food was well-presented. Expensive but a nice experience.
Meets expectations only. Nothing spectacular or surprising about dining here. The food was well balanced and tasty (although the cucumber soup lacked punch).
Amazing Food!!!!!! The entire wait staff was knowledgeable and attentive. My husband dropped his knife and seconds later a member of the wait staff turned around and said what fell, now that was beyond stellar and immediately replaced it.
The heat service anywhere!
We loved all of our food and the staff was wonderful. It has been our top food experience in our month in NYC.
Always excellent service. Food selection, preparation and presentation all top notch. Wine pairings interesting and delicious.
We went to Gramercy Tavern to celebrate our daughter’s graduation from medical school. From the moment we walked into the restaurant, we experienced outstanding service and the food was amazing! Thank you Gramercy Tavern team for a wonderful experience!
A great evening celebrating life, right before going to see the Lion King. Everything like always was spectacular.
One of the best restaurants in NYC. The food was exceptional. Service was excellent. One of the best dining experiences in NYC. Will definitely be back.
This restaurant is perfect for all occasions. You can’t help but feel like you are in the most beautiful space. I cannot wait to return.
This restaurant is fantastic! The food is amazing. The mix of flavors and creativity in each dish is superb. The restaurant is so beautifully decorated. The staff is very attentive and professional, couldn't have had a better dining experience. I absolutely recommend this restaurant and will certainly dine here again.
Make a note that it’s is a special occasion for birthday, but in the end they forget about the birthday day cake thing until I reminded the waitress.
4 out of 5 of us wanted to do the tasting menu and we learned that everyone at the table would have to, so all courses can be served at the same time. This was a dining experience. Every dish was like a happy party in your mouth. Fantastic food. We were still thinking about it days later. Some things were unexpected but welcomed for instance the tomato flavored sorbet as a pallet cleanser.
They get their food from local farms and they butcher their own meat. Two of us had the vegetarian tasting menu but we were able to substitute one course for a wild caught fish. We never had to ask for anything. They offer flat or sparkling water as part of the experience.
It’s not inexpensive but it really is an experience rather than just dinner.
This was our second time at this restaurant and it did not disappoint. Making a reservation before we left home in Seattle to NYC was part of our vacation plan. This recent visit to Gramercy was even better than our first based mostly on the perfect food and over-the-top service. The food was created artistically with every item excellent without the normal overuse of salt and butter in many restaurants.
Went for lunch with our 12 year old and her friend. We all had a wonderful meal. The girls had burgers and they raves about them the whole way home. Our server was so friendly and knowledgeable. There were no vegan entrees on menu but server helped me “create” something that was fabulous.
Gramercy Tavern is as solid as they come. The best of the best. It always has an innovative menu that rotates around the seasons and never fail to be a home run. Perfect for those that want to impress people for business or for that special date. I appreciate the simplicity of having the tip included in the price of the meal. I would also recommend Chef Mike Anthony’s cookbooks which are the perfect gift for those that love to cook.
Fantastic - exceptional as usual. The best flounder I have ever eaten.
Gorgeous as always - both the place and the food. Even nicer in August when the rest of Manhattan is away.
Another great meal at the Gramercy Tavern. Lovely food and attentive service without being in-your-face. Good wine and cocktail list. Relatively child friendly, although no kids' menu. Expensive but worth it for a treat.
First time experience! Was a great time for both my girlfriend and I. Service was exceptionally amazing and the food was amazing too!
i don't wish to write a review..................................................................if you don't accept this i am going not submit....you're wasting my time with your demands open table
It was everything I thought it would be! Having been in the service industry for 25 plus years, I read “Setting the Table” years ago and tried visiting here for the past five years in vain. Plans fell apart on my end every time, not this time! The service was the best I have had any wear, making my girls birthday one we will never forget. The food was exactly the way it should have been, unique, fresh and carefully executed to perfection. Thank you Kathan and the whole team who exceeded long thought out expectations! Emotional hospitality at its finest.
Haven't been back for dinner in nearly a decade, and Gramercy Tavern still has that magic. The staff was even friendlier than I remembered (shout-out to Emily and Morgan), and it was more than worthy of celebrating our niece's 21st birthday with her first real "adult" NYC dinner. I think she will remember it for decades to come.
The food? What can I say? It's just straight delicious. We didn't feel like we had room for the tasting menu, but the prix fixe was plenty. The desserts were killer. And that coconut meringue birthday cake was sublime.
Funny enough, I didn't think I would miss tipping on the bill, but I did. I hope the staff knows how much we appreciated their effort to make it a special night for us.
