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.

Definitely! I wanted to treat my daughter to a special dinner and Gramercy Tavern exceeded our expectations in every way. Michael, our waiter, was fantastic and his wife, Carolyn, a joy. We definitely will be back for our special occasions.
I have already recommended Gramercy Tavern to a friend for a private event.
Thank you.

Truly hospitable staff, delicious food prepared by people who know how to cook and blend flavors rather than just throwing trendy ingredients together, and a comfortable ambiance with a noise level that allows you to converse in a normal tone of voice. This place is a delight.

Restaurant was beautifully decorated for Spring/Easter weekend. Dined with my family and had a wonderful meal, food was great all around. As a vegetarian appreciated the chefs allowing me to select off the tasting menu and pub for additional options.

Excellent service. Even though we got the tasting menu, the restaurant was able to accommodate my wife’s pregnancy diet (i.e no raw fish). The ambiance is excellent and the food was fantastic. Definitely pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

It is very disappointing to witness the gradual deterioration in the quality and quantity of food served at Grammercy Tavern. The atmosphere remains excellent and the service quite good, but the absence of beef and higher quality fish dishes, combined with very small portions of lamb and pork, make the $134 fixed price inappropriate. This restaurant is surviving on Danny Meyer's reputation and marketing skills. I am sorry to write this, but it has been a long time coming.

We celebrated my brother’s engagement at Gramercy Tavern and had an amazing night. Stephen from the wine team couldn’t have been kinder to my 18-year-old daughter, bringing her sparkling cider so she could join into the toast to celebrate a couple. The food was incredible and they even gave my brother (who is a chef) a tour of the kitchen. We will definitely be back and it is my favorite new special occasion place in NYC.

We love, love, love Gramercy Tavern. Our server (Kelsey) was wonderful, offering a slew of information about the food, drinks and other information. Our lunch was fabulous -- we were celebrating our 20th anniversary and were greeted with champagne and seated in a perfect corner booth. Champagne was followed by a lovely meal. The garlic soup was outstanding (just the right balance of flavours); we each had fish for our main (black bass and striped bass, respectively) and it was flavorful and delicate. We finished with a rhubarb fool and cheese plate (the cheeses are amazing!). We were then treated to what I can only describe as a delicious concoction of cheesecake with a creme brulee crust topping.

A huge shout-out to Kelsey for making our anniversary lunch delightful. Thanks again!

We were there to celebrate my wife's book release and they made it very special for her. The food is amazing and the service is some of the best in the city even though it is a non tip establishment. Our server Ayesha greeted us with a complimentary glass of Prosecco to celebrate the book launch and was so welcoming and attentive all evening. The rest of the staff did a great job backing her up. Since the menu is constantly changing I will not review each course other than to say that the 3 course menu was well prepared and perfect portions. Dessert was fun and different and they treated us to an extra dessert that was out of this world. This is a top rated restaurant that deserves all of its accolades!

Enjoyed a drink in the busy and attractive bar first and then had diner in the main dining room with a prix fixed menu. They offered five nice choices in each of our three courses. They also offer a chef’s selection prix fixed with more courses. Excellent food, service and decor. Very relaxing fine dining experience. Comfortable seating and able to hear our conversation in a lovely and immaculate setting. It’s no accident that it’s a winner year after year.

Service has severely declined over the years.
Impossible to get help because staff (who share the tips) avoid eye contact when passing your table.
(They have this act down to a fine art.)
They've also been trained to come out of the kitchen with plates in their hands looking like robots.

Expectations ran high for a repeat engagement to NYC ‘s top dining experience.

We were welcomed with complementary Prosecco for our special occasion. And service was impeccable.

Perhaps because we have dinner here before it seemed a bit formulaic in how all was rolled out. The three course menu seems to lack the drama and pizzazz I was used to from previous dining there. Now , I am using very high standards but I left somewhat disappointed.


The first course Hamachi was tasty but overwhelmed by the accompaniments and was a small tasting portion-while
my wife’s tagateille pasts was perfectto.

The mains flounder, was dry and too salty while my striped bass really hit the mark.

Desserts were disappointing-chocolate cake did not deliver even with a scallop of vanilla ice cream and the lemon sherbet had no zing.

A complementary coconut meringue with the occasion noted was off the charts.

The staff as attentive and nice as could be with hospitality at every stage. But the dining and food uneven and a bit disappointing for New York’s finest.

And I am a huge Danny Meyer foodie.
