The staff and food at Gramercy Tavern were wonderful! The noise level made it a bit difficult for me to hear since I wear hearing aids. The restaurant has a lively busy feel so if you are looking for intimate dining this may not be your best choice. That being said...the food and staff were so delightful that I would chose Gramercy Tavern over many other 5 star dining experiences.

The service was awful. This is the second time that I’ve had inattentive waiters here. Nobody even came to clean our table. We paid the bill with dirty plates still on the table, because we couldn’t wait any longer. I am sure I can find another place to pay $36 for a fried chicken sandwich, so you should offer better service.

I have dined at Gramercy Tervern, but that was several years ago. I was disapointed this time. It may be the no tipping policy that has driven away the seasoned waiters, because our service was amateurish at best. The food was decent; clearly the best part of the afternoon, but nothing exceptional. I would not go back. There are much better places to spend one's money; the Gotham Bar and Grill for one.

Three of us dined here on Saturday night before the theatre, we had a 5:30 reservation. Service is included in the quite steep fixed menu pricing. After waiting about 15 minutes to order our first drink and then another 15 minutes just to order dinner I let the server know we needed to leave by 7:15. It was just after 6 at this point so we thought that should be ok since the service was only 2 courses and dessert. The food was ok, we all ordered different entrees and none were very good, which is nothing I’ve experienced in nyc. It’s expensive for fine dining there but it’s usually amazing. The desserts were all pretty good but didn’t arrive until 5 after 7. We didn’t finish them and had to ask for a check to get out of there by about 7:25. We did make the show with about 3 minutes to spare. I had heard this place was wonderful, so maybe it was just an off night, but it was a huge disappointment for us unfortunately.

Given that we ate or drank there five times in 48 hours, a reader might wonder about the ratings. The only issue was service at dinner. Lunch (3 times) and drinks(once) at the bar were extraordinary experiences, as always. Bartenders were engaging, informed, pleasant, funny and highly competent. At dinner, the waiter seemed mostly disinterested, except for a brief conversation about his native Turkey, and food runners generally just dropped (sometimes literally) the plates with no announcement of what it was nor good wishes to enjoy it. The sommelier (lady in glasses) was excellent, and also attentive. Having been longtime patrons and fans, we immediately wondered if the no-tipping policy has impacted the dining service. If so, please ditch it. Happy to tip generously to resurrect excellent service!
