We had the seasonal tasting menu. Every single bite was sensational. GT shines on.
An absolute must if you are visiting the city. The food is outstanding and the service. Worth every penny!!
LOVED our birthday meal of the vegetarian tasting. Wonderful ambiance, no detail too small. Service was top notch. Food was delish! Hadn't been in years and won't let that happen again!
$500 for 3 people for a bad meal. So disappointing--ugh.
I have had amazing meals at Gramercy Tavern over the years: anniversary dinners, birthday meals, business dinners. In years past, I have loved the wines, the incredibly attentive & expert service, & really inventive food.
Wow, have times changed. I had an important meeting with a Chinese business contact, and wanted to wow her. But we had to wait 15 minutes just to get a drink order in after we were seated. Then another 10 minutes for drinks! Amazingly, though, despite long waits for drinks and courses, other members of the waitstaff asked repeatedly "are you done" when my business contact was obviously not done. One actually hovered behind us! But it wasn't that surprising, because much of the waitstaff seemed harried and disorganized. I witnessed at least 4 bickering.
The wines used to be available in 2 or 4 ounces, so you could try a few. No longer. Just an overpriced 6 oz., generally at $20. My albarino was too sweet. I then ordered the Gargegna (sp?), but somewhat brought a Soave instead. The wait was so long I just gave up and took it. Another friend at the dinner waited endlessly for a pinot noir after his martini.
The amuse bouche was delicious, and the wheat biscuit good--but they used to have a wonderful bread basket. No longer. Just: "here's your biscuit."
The baby lettuce salad was uninspiring in presentation, but had a good, hearty finish. The black bass was terrible--tough, on a bland green sauce. The ice cream dessert was also awful...all three were sickly sweet, and half melted upon arrival.
And here's the final disappointment. At all past meals at GT, I got a little bag with delicious muffins in it. It was a great breakfast. Now they ply patrons with a hard, bland, granola bar. Almost as if to say, "you should diet after a meal like that." One of the servers commented to me that she had 6 at home and ate them for breakfast. Maybe they should just give out PowerCrunch protein bars.
Fun night out, visiting New York for the first time
Fabulous service and amazing food!! You feel welcome at every turn in the dinner process! Hidden extras make it a truly special night! Love coming here every time!
Excellent restaurant with great food and service. A classic NYC eating establishment.
It’s really expensive but they make it worth it.
Great service and food. The price was high for two person meal. Overall a good experience.
Amazing food and service !!!!!
We celebrated our anniversary and were showered with great hospitality and received some great champagne to toast
Wonderful service and food.
Food was exceptional as was the service! Our server, Allison, and her support did a top notch job.
It was an amazing experience with attention to detail on the atmosphere, delicious food, well balanced cocktails and stellar service. I really enjoyed how they did some research on me as a guest before I came in. It was a nice personal touch to the entire vibe and experience.
Fabulous. They were very accommodating of our large party. Would definitely go again
Stellar service, food and experience. Never disappoints. I only wish they opened up reservations further out.
Great value lunch tasting menu with wine pairing! The service was impeccable.
As with every Union Square Hospitality Group restaurant, Gramercy Tavern was perfect. The service is top notch, and the food is innovative and delicious. I cannot recommend it enough.
Food was outstanding - service was a bonus. Our server Toni was knowledgeable and friendly and super patient with us. She gave excellent wine recommendations and went above and beyond to make our evening smooth, stress free and enjoyable. Every server was smiling when they brought our dishes out and explained what was in each dish thoroughly. We recommend to anyone visiting New York to experience the food here. You will taste the chefs intention with every bite and walk away with an elevated dining experience and a truly unforgettable meal.
We went to the dining room on a Friday night and it was extremely loud. The shouting and behaviour of the guests on the neighbouring tables ruined the atmosphere. I could see that it bothered other diners also. I expected the place to be a bit more classy. Great food but not as good as I had anticipates (maybe my expectations were too high). Overall not worth it for the price.
The experience met my expectations.
Hard to justify spending as much as my wife and I did on any meal, but our experience at Gramercy was well worth it! Service was outstanding and the ambiance was exceptional. My beef tartare was excellent, along with the lamb and the little of my wife’s bass I tried was excellent. The pecan cake was a little dry but the chocolate dessert we had was awesome. We also received several “compliments” from th chef throughout the meal, which made he experience memorable. Thanks!
A wonderful last-minute lucky reservation. 3 of us marveled at the Seasonal Tasking Menu with wine pairings. Every course and glass hit the mark with one small exception. Only slight knock was that the deserts were fun and creative, but 2 frozen courses made us pine for some pastry.
First time to Gramercy and excellent meal. Service was exceptional. Very relaxed but attentive service. Especially as it’s included. Food delicious expecially the pasta starter. Outstanding nice options for the main course and good wine list with wines at various price points. I was worried with the set menu at $129 but it was well worth it for a beautiful delicious dinner with a good friend. Made for a memorable evening all around.
Gramercy Tavern once again earns its rating as a top NY restaurant.
Excellent food, Excellent service. Look forward to trying for dinner.
Visit to NY. Always the best restaurant in Manhattan. Service, ambiance, and food were impeccable.
it was really amazing, they have wines from everywhere, and the food was unexpectedly excelent
We have been going for 15 years. Outstanding as ever.
Every one was super nice! We attended in between the two showings of Harry Potter part 1 and 2. We were slightly pressed for time, but they were still able to do the 6 course tasting menu, which was outstanding. Each course was very well presented and amazing. The cheddar cheese ice cream was definitely a highlight. They were extremely accommodating to our dietary restrictions. We could not have asked for a better time. The whole staff was absolutely fabulous.
We could not have had a better experience. The food was spectacular, the wine pairings spot on and the staff professional and engaging. The sommelier took a particular interest in explaining the different wines offered and made changes based on our discussion. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for an upscale but not stuffy dining experience.
Between the food and service it was an all round wonderful experience.
Wonderful lunch on a Sunday afternoon in New York .
REMARKABLE! Had my 60th birthday party (16 guests in the party room) here 9 years ago. Better than it was. A wonderful reminder of top quality service, food, décor and wine. There was not a single thing that could have been better. Experience, concern and real people doing their very best to please. One of the BEST in NYC.
We had a fabulous lunch on Saturday. They were rocking, service and food amazing!
An absolutely perfect place for a celebration. The service is on point and the tasting menu was delicious. The beef course and grilled cabbage amuse were true stand outs. The sommelier is also a wizard at pairings. Highly recommend!
For the volume and quality of food Gramercy Tavern cranks our, quite impressive. Dinner was a 3 hour service. A bit long. Think it’s better with a night out with friends and Family where you plan on staying awhile. There’s a few more fine dining experiences I’d rather have for the $175/person but overall good.
Incredible food. We did the seasonal tasting with matching wines.. could not fault anything.. was perfection.
It was my friend’s birthday party, and our first time at Gramercy. The food was amazing and everything was good, but the service was rather weird for the Michelin star restaurant. We felt as if we were rushed all the time( we wanted to enjoy the birthday and the food, but constant asking like are you done? Are you done? Are you done? Was sooooooo annoying and unprofessional. It’s not some food chain restaurant where people are rushed so other people can dine for 30 bucks, it’s a rather expensive establishment with the expected better level of service.
