Got together with the ladies for dinner. We were so happy to be in a dining room where we could enjoy conversation. We were greeted by Chef Seeger as soon as we were seated, he welcomed us to the restaurant and talked with us about the menu. We felt as if we were at a friends dining room, a very beautiful dining room. The room is filled with gorgeous flowers it smells good and being able to see into the gorgeous extremely clean kitchen as the chefs work preparing our food was special.
The crystal is the most pleasing delicate stemware, they sell it, one of my friends bought a set. All of the china is unique, very eye catching tableware. The meal was over the top delicious and we didn’t feel too full but certainly had enough to eat. The sommelier Rashi was so great we didn’t do the wine pairings but Rashi chose two wines that we all loved, that paired perfectly.
This was my second time eating at Gunter Seeger in NYC and I plan to go back soon.

A singular dining experience. Each course was exquisitely prepared and presented. The staff-to-diner ratio (only a limited number of guests are seated at a time) allows for exceptional personal service (it is practically a show!).

Having dined at the chef's previous location in Atlanta many years ago, we were expecting a great experience. He is still firing on all cylinders; food was great! The service was uniformly excellent. If I have one small criticism, it is that they do not serve diet cola. This is a popular and very common beverage in restaurants for those under 21, and my daughter was disappointed. Apart from this, I recommend this restaurant enthusiastically.

We have been to Seeger's once a year since it first opened and each experience is a dining revelation. Seeger's food is simple and elegant. The integrity of the raw ingredients shine thru the beautiful presentations. Nothing seems elaborate or cloying. All is clean, fresh, simple and spectacular. The wine list is a special treat, the german selection is not to be missed. This restaurant has really found it's rhythm, particularly front of the house. An exceptional experience.

Gunter Seeger was delicious! We did the 10 course tasting menu with wine pairing and we LOVED it! Each course was new and creative. The service was outstanding. They were attentive without being overbearing and they anticipated our every need. We celebrated our anniversary and they did a special cake surprise and put a card on our table. It was lovely!

I went to Gunter Seeger this past Saturday for a birthday dinner with 7 people. We had the 12 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Overall, the experience was totally underwhelming: the food was inconsistent (egg dish was the best), the staff did not have sufficient detail about the dishes (for example, they served caviar but did not know the type or provenance and had to go back and check - it was from China!), and there was no sommelier present to describe the uninspired wine pairings. I most certainly will never go back and I recommend that anyone looking for a special occasion venue avoid Gunter Seeger.

The only positive thing I can say is that the decor is a beautiful fusion of rustic boho and modernism.

The service was impeccable and the ambiance was great. They were extremely accommodating to food allergies and we really enjoyed that and all of the dishes served. Two small things - 1) need a more reasonable champagne by the glass on the menu [$35 is very expensive, more than the cocktails, and the only choices] and 2) all of the 4 diners who went to dinner were still VERY hungry after the 6 course tasting menu. The portions need to be a little bit bigger if you are spending $300 on a tasting menu and food pairing - we shouldn't need to grab pizza after the fancy and delicious meal.

Beautiful, calming setting. Professional, warm and knowledgeable staff. Enchanting tasting menu. Strawberry gazpacho and black bass with fresh cardamom were the highlights for me. My wine connoisseur friend was pleased with his selections. Longest meal I've ever had, but I had nowhere else to be and was enjoying my dinner and conversation, so no complaints. I requested food accommodations in advance and the chef gave me wonderful alternatives to the evening's tasting menu, all printed on my own menu.

This is an extraordinary restaurant. My wife and I like to explore the tasting menus of Michelin star (1-2 stars) restaurants for special occasions and this is easily the best. Each of the 10 dishes was incredible and we are still talking about them 2 days after our visit. Chef Seeger is a genius.

I found Gunter Seeger a welcome oasis in the NY food scene. There are many classic touches and the decor is muted but lovely. The food is wonderful--subtle and precise flavors with a consistent feeling of freshness and innovation, while never overly "clever." It felt to me more like some of my favorite restaurants in Copenhagen that way. The wine selections were perfect and eclectic with a slight emphasis on fine German wines which of course makes sense. The service was warm, friendly, and efficient throughout. I really liked this place.

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.
