Excellent Food and Service. Despite # of courses, not too much food.
outstanding experience--beautiful plates, beautiful service (both formally choreographed AND warm and good humored enough to put us at ease), exquisite tastes.
We had the most wonderful experience at Gunter Seeger. From the personalized attention, the staff caring, the beautiful ambiance, and most importantly incredible food!!! It was an A+++ experience from beginning to end, and cannot recommend this restaurant enough.
I will explain why 3 stars for ambience. We came here for our anniversary a couple of weeks ago and were able to easily book a table 2 weeks in advance. Oddly, there was 1 full table near the kitchen, another with a couple and then a bit later another couple came in, however, most of the restaurant was empty on a Wednesday evening. Seemed odd but nonetheless, we were at a lovely corner table facing towards the door and all the empty tables that were beautifully set with candles. We got the 10 course, wine paired tasting menu which was very nice, although I thought the food came out a bit too long after each paired wine was poured, but not really a big deal and we were not in a rush. At some point in the middle of the meal, they started putting out the candles at all the empty tables which kind of broke the atmosphere a bit and we started to feel a bit rushed like they were starting to close up (around 9pm at this point). Shortly after this, a frazzled looking person with rolled up shirt sleeves (no jacket) was seated at the big corner table near the door, directly in our sight line. At first I thought is was someone who worked there, just having a bite before leaving but then they pulled out a laptop, a bunch of paper notes and was just working away in the glow if his laptop, a bit sweaty and discheveled and a bit distracting. We continued our meal but could not stop being distracted from this person right there in front of the house, working away. Definately a mood changer. We found out later that it was the inspector, you know, the guy who gives you an A,B,C or worse. He had made a pop in visit apparently, but sitting directly in front of the house at a high end restaurant, working away on his laptop and flipping through papers dressed as he was, was not what I wanted to look at in this beautiful space and, in my opinion, a weird place to put this guy during business hours. Again the staff was very nice but this left us with an odd vibe about the place.
Beautiful restaurant with impeccable service. I think that if you are a fan of tasting menus and fine dining that this is a must try. Chef Gunter makes the simplest ingredients very special and I love not knowing what you are going to get. Wine pairing was on point but was heavy on the whites so if you prefer reds either ask for more reds or skip the pairing.
Three of us had the ten course tasting menu.
Service overall was excellent. One of my dining partners found the service too formal, but it was perfect for me.
We arrived 20-30 minutes early, but they were able to seat us right away.
Two of us had a full wine pairing, and I asked for a half wine pairing, which they were able to accommodate with half pours with each course. I appreciated this flexibility, as it let me try every wine without doing a full wine pairing, which is too much for me. At the end of the evening, the half pairing was charged at exactly half of the full pairing.
Our first course was quite delayed due to a misplaced ticket. The staff apologized several times and poured multiple glasses of extra wine to make up for the problem, which was an appropriate response and put me at ease.
The only negative regarding service was that when we asked what the next course was, a staff member mistakenly said squab (it ended up being venison) which left me wondering whether there was going to be a squab course.
The food was delicious, fresh, and well executed, but I wish that more courses had blown me away. For example, the egg course was unique and was one of my favorites, but the salmon and venison, although perfectly executed, were plain. The overall quantity of food was not quite enough for me, but I expect it would be just perfect for most diners.
Finally, I enjoyed the wine pairing very much, my favorite being the reisling served early on. It was heavy on the whites, but this made sense with the seafood-heavy meal.
Overall, it was a delicious meal, but given the price and value, I do not think I will return.
Great restaurant with wonderful atmosphere and superb service. Food was sublime but portions are on the small side even for fine dining restaurants. But experience can differ due to the daily changing course menu. Great wine list with many German wines.
Absolutely worth everything. Delicious, well thought out courses. Service was impeccable. Ambiance so cozy and warm.
Love the fact that the tables are roomy and facilitate conversation. This is an adult restaurant.
The food is very fresh but very light... I think I like Daniel more
Excellent food and service. Stools for women's purses might be the only thing lacking.
The restaurant was immaculate in every detail. The dishes were perfectly paced and tantalized the taste buds. The staff was pitch perfect. Chef Seeger is a master of his craft and clearly on top of his game. Our new favorite fine dining spot in NYC.
Good restaurant with great tasting menu. Nice decor and ambience. Wine pairings were great .Food was a little light but all very good.
Really wonderful. A gem in the heart of the West Village.
Soft pink and grey decor. Open kitchen. Carefully prepared and presented food. Helpful and knowledgeable service.
Excellent food and beautiful ambiance.
OMG. We absolutely couldn't have had a better meal, better service, better ambiance. terrific terrific meal and experience. if you want something special and delicious, go to this restaurant. you will NOT be disappointed. we will most certainly be back.
Celebrated my wife’s birthday - Most fun we’ve ever had eating dinner! Everything was perfect - the greeting, the service, the wine pairings, the creativity and certainly the food. We expected a lot, and were not disappointed.
Thank you Günter Seeger team!
Delicious and precious food served with grace in a comfortable dining room. A truly special restaurant!
Always wonderful food and immaculate service. A must in NYC.
I have lost count of how many times i have dined here at Gunter Seeger. He always puts so much care and thought into every single plate and the results are always exhilarating and delicious. Cannot wait to be back here again in the new year!!
I had dined with Gunter in Atlanta, several times and always been pleased and impressed by his talent and execution. His new incarnation is even better! Wonderful six course tasting menu matched very well with wine. Food is prepared perfectly and brought at great temperature. China, utensils, serving ware and stemware all grand and glorius. Staff was eager to engage and lovely service ensued. Nice quiet atmosphere with pretty people all around made for a terrific experience. Definitely will return!
great atmosphere and service, food was excellent and well executed though could be more adventurous. very comforting and delightful meal, will def be back
Excellent creative cuisine. Attractive ambiance in a setting where you can have a conversation and hear each other... a rarity below 34th Street
Celebrated the Birthday of my Girlfriend!
Fantastic experience. We had a wonderful evening. Not only great food, exceptional good Service.
Will be back again!!
Wonderful atmosphere. Comfortable and considerate. Highly recommend.
Impeccable service and food
Gunther Seeger is a modern version of a throwback - a small chef driven restaurant with world class food. We used to have a number of restaurants like this in NY but not anymore. Bouley is gone, Daniel is for the tourists and awful, Per se is weak, only Bernardin still shines. But Gunther Seeger is that good, and that rare in NY today
Stunning resturant with beautiful decor and intimate seating arrangement. Service was attentive and impeccable. The tasting menu has a perfect flow and each course highlights fresh ingredients with exquisite precision.
The best restUrant I have visited this year. We will definitely come back.
Outstanding foods! Beautiful atmosphere! Never cease to amaze me
very good food
Amazing place with everything you expect the greatest is here!!
Great and attentive service!
Good services all around, food is good, solid. My major complain is the space for the restaurant, feel cramped, it definitely need a bigger space to feel comfortable. Overall decent value.
Great food, nice waitresses, nice decor, quiet, good beer and wines
The presentation and the flavors at Gunter Seeger would best be described as very precise. The chef and his team clearly set very high standards for them selves and dinners will be pleased and occasionally amazed. The service staff is a well oiled machine without ever appearing mechanical. The chef rotates the tasting menu around what is at its peek while keeping certain standards as anchors in his rotation. He a grand master with eggs and all things that swim or fly. The courses are appropriately sized and once leaves happy satisfied but not bursting at the seams.
The kitchen's thirst for innovation and seasonality is evident in a carefully curated menu. Their "batting average" is exceptional although one may occasionally find an experiment that is not quite ready for prime time. For example, an Oyster and Beef Consume dish was expertly prepared but the choir never quite achieved full harmony.
Its clear why Micheline honored this restaurant with a star.
Can not speak highly enough about Gunter Seeger.
Truly inspired food in a beautiful setting. Generously spaced tables provide an excellent opportunity for conversation.
We did the 6 course tasting menu and actually had to add an extra course because the portions were small. Overall the experience was great, beautiful ambiance, staff was extremely friendly and accomodating
