What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation

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.

Had been looking forward to an anniversary dinner. Ordered a nice bottle of red but when it arrived it was freezing. Was told all wine is served at cellar temperature! Waiter and waitress nice but sommelier needs to go back to school and drop the attitude. Food just average. Very expensive and trading on fiction not fact.

Gramercy Tavern has long been my favorite restaurant in nyc — where i go for very special occasions. However, they seem to have slipped badly.

Terrible service by lead waiter, left our whole party hungry. At 135 per head pris fixe, you shouldn’t feel ripped off, and i did. The food was average, the waiter was snarky and the value proposition was a disaster. I won’t be returning.

One word - WOW!

I’d dined here some 14 years ago and back then it was the best meal I’d ever had, I had the highest hopes and Gramercy Tavern delivered on all fronts.

I chose the tasting menu along with the wine flight, expensive but well worth the money.

Every dish was pure perfection, each getting better and better. Portion size was ideal even for a big guy like me and I opted to take the additional cheese course.

My server, Lara, was exceptional, her manner, knowledge and nature heightened the whole experience and made sure it was the best you could imagine, thank you Lara.

The Sommelier is off the scale also, the wines matched were superb and this chap is worth his weight in gold, put yourself in his care and he will look after you.

Gramercy Tavern remains my best dining experience across the world and I will definitely not leave it so long to return.

Food was excellent, but not special and certainly note worth the prix fixe. Noise level made it difficult to have a conversation. Very different experience than our last meal here a couple of years ago. Unlikely to return. Not sure what has happened.

We went for our anniversary. Everything was fine, but not exciting. Our server was very nice, but brought our first course when we had just gotten our cocktails. Obviously, our wine came right after, and we were forced to slurp the cocktails quickly without truly enjoying them . While she was very nice, the service did not seem sincere. She had the same spiel for every table, and was loud enough to be heard by all patrons. Truly takes away from feeling special on a special night. The food was meh. It was my first time there, and was looking forward to a pampering experience with excellent food, but received neither. Will not be back. There are so many more interesting restaurants around with great food, service and ambiance.

We truly enjoyed our dinner at the Gramercy Tavern. We ate in the main dining room and had the fixed price three course meal. All of the items were very good, no complaints per se. However, the dishes also were not special- in many regards, somewhat ordinary food, although prepared very well. By chance, we had the three course lunch the next day at the Modern (the Danny Meyer restaurant at MoMa). The food and presentation at the Modern was much more refined with exquisite taste. From a service standpoint, the service at the Gramercy was certainly attentive and friendly. That said, there were almost too many service people in the room, and they were often standing around talking to each other.

On every level it simply doesn't get any better. A Danny Meyer standout of perfection from the moment you walk in the door until the moment leave and feel the need to thank all that contributed to your experience on the way out. After many visits it never disappoints as the ambiance, the outstanding cuisine and exceptional service always lives up to and often surpasses the previous visit, if that is even possible.
