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.

I arranged to take a dear friend for a special lunch at Gramercy Tavern. She’d never been and is about to move to the other side of the country. We had the tasting menu with matched wines. Wonderful meal and service from start to finish - with the added touch of a completely unexpected Bon Voyage cake at the end. Really kind and friendly wait staff who take pride in providing excellent food and service. I love the fact that Gramercy Tavern includes the service in the bill. This policy, along with delicious food and delightful people, helps make it, along with Sushi Yasuda, amongst our favorite restaurants in NYC.

As ever, dining at Gramercy Tavern is a pleasure for your taste buds and your spirit. The food is...crisply (pun intended) divine; cooked to perfection and simply but elegantly presented. The wait-staff is friendly and attentive, and the restaurant extends itself (in our case, with sparkling cider--we do not drink--and an adorable cake inscribed with celebratory wishes for our anniversary) in a generous and lovely way. Gramercy Tavern has been "our place" to celebrate for a number of years, and we expect that to continue.

We had an amazing and magical evening at The Gramercy Tavern. While the food was incredibly succulent and superb, the atmosphere and hospitality was over the top. We felt loved and cared for the entire evening. They lavished us with one of the best experiences a customer could have at a Restaurant. Thank You!

Lovely dinner! Chef Michael Anthony does not disappoint, vegetable tasting menu was delicious. Slightly unimpressed with the sweet potato course and the carrot salad but the other courses were out of this world. My menu was modified to accommodate a vegan diet. The dessert was sorbet with sliced almonds, it was good but not what I expect of a michelin star restaurant. I love this restaurant and rank as one of my absolute favorites but hope, one day, a proper vegan dessert will be served.

Well, My wife and I were celebrating our 5th year wedding anniversary and I have heard about Gramercy Tavern but our experience was simply amazing. The food was excellent and they were so gracious and they even brought us a little desert and wrote Happy Anniversary on the plate.

We had an outstanding experience there and I would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone..

Really amazing first anniversary dinner. Very attentive service. We were greeted with prosecco upon arrival since we noted in our reservation that we were celebrating. We did the tasting menu which is by far the way to go. I am not a huge seafood eater, so they actually let me do half of the vegetarian tasting menu and have the traditional which was really nice. Every course was spectacular. They even brought out a complimentary coconut meringue cake at the end with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate. The atmosphere was sophisticated and special without being pretentious and overdone which was really perfect for us. Really special evening that we'll never forget!

A very sophisticated environment yet very casual. In other words, you’ll feel comfortable dressed up or right at home in your t-shirt (ideally have a collar). Their food is definitely worth many visits. I would say, you can go wrong with any choice you make. Special touch of a cupcake some specialty dessert was offered to help us celebrate our special day. Lastly, I favour the no tip policy that they have adopted.

You really pay through the nose to sit at a linen-draped table in the spacious dining room. The three-course prix-fixe is $129 and many of the selections are bizarre. Cocktails are $25. The vegetarian tasting menu is, believe it or not, $159. For a bunch of carrots! It's all very sedate and patrician barring raucous tables nearby.

Gramercy Tavern is the restaurant we return to the most often in New York because it balances incredible food with a welcoming atmosphere, and punctuated with professional yet friendly and engaging service. My partner and I were celebrating something special, so we sat in the dining room after only eating in the tavern area previously. The experience in each room is different and unique, but you will have a wonderful experience either way.

First of all, we were thrilled to see that our favorite amazing server from the tavern area, Emily, was assisting in the dining area that night and we got a chance to catch up and share some good laughs. It is always great to see her and she is singlehandedly one of the main reasons we keep coming back.

As for the meal, it was one of the finest we have had at the restaurant, which improved on its already high standards. After a few years from shying away from tasting menus, the new seasonal version with the wine pairing sounded too good to pass up. We started out with the marinated Wellfleet scallops with strawberries, and the buttery texture of the scallop was enhanced by the sweetness of the fruit. The next course was the lobster with asparagus and tarragon, and the sweetness of the lobster paired so nicely with the floral notes of the herbs. Next up was the sea bream with pumpkin seeds and a curry sauce that was delicious. The pasta course with guanciale, clams, and favs beans was wonderfully executed and loved how it fused the tastes of both spring and early summer. The main course was the duck breast and confit that was paired with Swiss chard and quinoa. The balance of flavors here was incredible, and the duck fat penetrating each component of the dish made me wish I could have more. Finally, dessert was a marvelous deconstructed strawberry dessert with angel food and cheesecake.

If you have never been here but are thinking of trying it, I cannot recommend it highly enough. You won’t be disappointed.
