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.

Dining at Gramercy Tavern is always an absolute pleasure. It is the trifecta of service, decor and food. It's not easy to keep this incredible level of service for 24 years, but Gramercy Tavern continues to delight all. They understand their guests and they continually challenge themselves with respect to service and food.

While leaving, I ran into the Executive Chef Michael Anthony and had the privilege to speak with him about our meal. My wife and I are huge fans of his food. While we did not see the General Manager, Scott, his presence is always felt in the perfection of the experience.

Lastly, while we were leaving, I noticed out of the corner of my eye, Michael Anthony started to "bus" (clean) a table in the bar area. It's that type of incredible teamwork that makes the experience so special for all of the guests. We'll be back.

Thank you Scott, Michael and Danny for another great time with the Union Square Hospitality Group!

I wasn't really impressed. Did not live up to the reputation. Food was fine but certainly not worth the price or hype. Service was trying very hard to be 'fancy' but just came off weird. Had dinner at a Pub up the street the next day and had a much better experience at 1/4 the cost.

Gramercy Tavern, especially the Tavern, have been a favorite for years. This last experience, unfortunately, was quite a disappointment. Saturday lunch, 12:15 seating, party of five. After being seated we were never asked if we would like a drink. In fact, it was only after the waiter had taken our orders and we pointed out that we had never been offered a drink that they took the order.

My meal, the bass, was disappointing. The fish was tough and dry on the outer layers yet felt undercooked at the center. For reference, I tend to prefer my food on the rare side. It was a bit of worse of both worlds.

Otherwise, the setting, as always was perfect. The flowers beautiful, the ambiance could not be better. Just fell way short of my expectations, especially having experienced so much better on other occasions.

The food was fantastic! When we come to NYC from Santa Barbara we always try to eat here especially for special occasions. Every one at the table loved their food. There were 4 of us and the one person that had not been there thought it was a fantastic meal and evening. We were celebrating my mom’s 85th Birthday. They brought her a delicious small coconut cake with a candle. I was kind of surprised that they charged for that since they did not tell mention that it would be extra. Otherwise we will be back soon.

I was excited to try their seasonal tasting menu and we really enjoyed all of our courses. I was expecting molecular gastronomy, which it turns out this place is not, but the dishes were still delicious and they were able to accommodate some requests since I’m expecting. The time between courses was a bit too long, but that’s really the only complaint.

Service was over the top amazing. Loved the angel rolls!
I had a yogurt mousse dessert with Concord grape sauce they was outstanding.
Is there any chance I could get this recipe? If it’s in a cookbook I’ll buy it. It was on the seasonal vegetarian menu so I’m assuming not......??
Happy Holidays.
We’ll be back again when we return to the city.
Thanks

We went to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We picked Gramercy as it’s been a favorite over the years. They treated us to a glass of bubbly to start. We ordered the fall tasting menu with wine parings and it was perfect. I had to switch one item and they even brought a different wine for it. The attention to detail is amazing. We love the low key atmosphere while eating amazing food and drinking excellent wine! But I can add, it’s a great place even without the special occasion!

I visited the Gramercy on my holiday from Scotland as I look forward to doing every time I come
Unfortunately on the day of the booking my friend had a bug and could not come with me I decided to go alone and had a great time staff knew my predicament and paid me extra attention
Food and wine was excellent and I left with a carton of broth for my friend from the chef - how kind !
This place is truly special

Food was fantastic. Similar to the many reviews I read, the service was impeccable. We very much enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to friends for a special event/date/birthday type of celebration. The bar also looked like a great spot for a slightly more casual night out. Cocktails were smooth and well-crafted.

We had British friends visiting and they asked to go to a 'very American' place for dinner. The experience at Gramercy Tavern was spot on perfect. Wonderful focused selection of interesting dishes, prepared to perfection, and a wait staff that simply couldn't have been more pleasant.

The food and service were very good to excellent. The back room, however, where we were seated, was bland and resembled a diner from the 1990s. The art was similar to that which one would find in a dentist’s office. All the effort to create a lovely ambiance was placed into the front of the restaurant and no thought whatsoever went into the rest. Due to this neglect, we felt that the price tag was way too high and plan never to return.
