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 wish that the servers didn't refill our water glasses quite so often. Otherwise: perfect.

I envy anyone who lives close enough to Gramercy Tavern (and has enough money in the bank) to eat there regularly. The atmosphere is attractive, the noise level civilized (especially if you go early), and the food reliably delicious.

Had not been here for a number of years. In fairness, my guest found our meal "memorable." I was disappointed that the tasting menu didn't offer options. I found the several courses effortfully inventive at the expense of flavor. The service is wonderful.

I have been going to Gramercy Tavern for pretty much every special occasion for over 20 years, and this last visit was the only one I recall where not one dish on the seasonal menu (tasting menu) made me moan. It was all good; very good, in fact, but that is below my expectations. I loved one of our servers (not the other, primary one), and we had to wait a bit for our cocktails (a first!).

We'll go back again and see if it pops back up to the level we have come to expect. But we were all a bit let down, and that makes me sad.

Gramercy Tavern almost has the perfect formula, especially with 2 tasting menu options: One vegetarian and one conventional. The missed opportunity is when they "veganize" the vegetarian menu. That is, they remove non-vegan ingredients, as opposed to replacing them with vegan ones. This results in very mundane courses, bad value for $160 pp. Considering the size and growth of the vegan population in NYC, making this change would make this restaurant unparalleled in NYC.

I have been trying to get reservations for a long time and it was definitely worth the wait! Gramercy Tavern was very accommodating to our dietary needs and restrictions. They also offered flexible menu options and recommended which dining my husband and I could substitute. The cocktails were amazing and left with a nice buzz! We will definitely be going back 🤗

It was an AMAZING lunch - everything from the crushed concord grape cocktails through dessert was perfect, and the service was fabulous. On a side note, I am now convinced that arugula makes everything taste better - they put it on my dessert and it kicked up the overall flavor to perfection.

Ristorante trendy ma nettamente inferiore alle aspettative sia per quanto riguarda il cibo che è ordinario e presentato in quantità minima, che per il servizio, reso in maniera efficiente ma fredda.
Sono dell’idea che sia salutare una dieta leggera ma tre fettine di carne in un grande piatto vuoto sono davvero poco gratificanti! Oltretutto per prezzi così elevati.......

Food, if you LOVE salt was great. Salt was the only thing you could taste. Otherwise food not memorable. Most expensive meal of our NYC trip and worst food. Not a good combo. Very,very slow service. The wait in between courses was unbelievable. We figured they wanted to make sure we drank lots of the overpriced wine. The restaurant is beautiful - very charming.

This was my third time at the GT and the second time in the dining room, all for lunch. I appreciate the imaginative food preparations and the interesting wine selections. For example, we were given a semi-sparkling Italian desert wine (Braida Brochette, d'Acqui) a wine I had never had before with our desert corse. This is one of the main reasons I come to the GT - to experience unusual pairings.

The values on wine by the bottle are not attractive, however. I see selections from my own seller that I bought at retail for less than 1/3 the price on the wine list. Since you are buying a less than retail, this looks like a huge markup. It pretty much keeps me from order any wine by the bottle.

We are moving to North Carolina. We have been to GT many times but wanted our last meal in NYC to be the best and so we headed for GT. They NEVER disappoint, from the nice selection of wines to a fabulous meal. Oysters briny, cold, and delicious, the pork schnitzel was tender and delicious, and burger as expected, but with the raclette chees topping it made it over the top. The cheese selection was also a treat. They never disappoint, wish I could already go back......

Gramercy Tavern:
We stopped in New York on our trip home to the San Francisco area to visit and have dinner with good friends.
The food and service were excellent in the main dining room. The front staff was welcoming. The general ambience, including grand flower arrangements was charming & delightful.

Disappointingly, very crowded table arrangements and a high level of noise from a very large number of nearby diners was not what we had planned on. On our last visit to the Gramercy Tavern, a few years ago, my wife, adult daughter and I had a very different experience in the dining room. The tables were well spaced and allowed for quiet, thoughtful dinner conversation. So, that is why I planned over a month ago to have a special, quiet dinner with close friends repeated at the Gramercy Tavern. Perhaps Mr. Meyer, given his ability to provide a fine dining experience, could suggest another of his venues which suits us on our next trip to New York ?

Thanks for the opportunity to express our experiences.
Sincerely,

James and Christine Bohar
