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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

The best part of the Gramercy Tavern (the dining room) is the service. They are extremely attentive and responsive. The ambience is also excellent. The food (lunch) is very good but not superb. The daily prefix lunch included a grilled calamari plate but had very little calamari in it. The dessert, blackberry sorbet, in contrast, was fantastic.

As expected, it was fantastic. Food was divine, service was cheerful and informative. They turned it into an experience.

Is any meal $200 fantastic? Probably not, and neither was this one. But if you're going to pay that much, you might as well get the best food, service and experience, and Grammercy Tavern delivered.

Celebrated our 38th anniversary at Gramercy. They gave us a great table in the corner, greeted us with 2 glasses of champagne, and we ate the best food ever. We had the seasonal tasting menu and each course was fantastic. Just a lovely night...

Was a beautiful evening but must say for the expectations, not as up to par as I'd hoped.
Initial seating seemed to cause a moment of (unexplained) confusion at host station, wasn't ecstatic about where we were seated as it was a first experience and didn't have much to look at from our vantage point, had to wander to find restroom, but was eventually led by someone on floor who noticed. Even got served entree without appetizer plates being removed (we stacked them ourselves.)
Other than that, our main server did his best and was pleasant and the ambiance was still worth partaking of (you feel a bit of history being in the space). Will return to perhaps try the Tavern and maybe even give a second go and try a full tasting menu.

We were looking forward to eating at Gramercy Tavern for the first time for our son's 21st birthday. We sat in the dining room. Nice corner table (#200) and not crazy noisy in the corner. They have a lot of staff...maybe too many. The appetizer and main courses were really on the small side. Food was good, but not great. The desserts were very large in relation to the other parts of the meal, which really took us by surprise. Some desserts were great...others were very odd tasting. For the birthday, they delivered a very small cake with a candle and Happy Birthday written on the plate in chocolate, which was a very nice touch. The restaurant is very pricey. Price fix included the tip, but still very pricy. May be worth trying the tavern part of the restaurant and their menu. No reservations taken in the tavern.

For all the hype it gets, I've had way better meals for way less money. We did the seasonal tasting menu in the dining room. It was simply average. Sometimes the food was cooler than room temperature, which just felt like poor oversight by the kitchen.

The male host was really rude and obnoxious, he treated us like dumb tourists for making the reservation the same day ...as if that makes a difference. Then in a very condescending way informed us that it was a tasting menu only in the dinning room where we made our reservation and if we wanted to eat off the menu it was a hour and a half wait. We had the tasting menu food was good but not memorable in the least. It was loud and crowded not in a fun way. Will not be back .

Great service and great food. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and couldn’t be happier. My wife loved her dessert but the main course was a little too salty. Extremely nice gesture for a complimentary champagne and dessert. I highly recommend to anyone who wants to experience fine dining and service.
