The decor and ambiance was just perfect. We were greeted with such warmth. However, the timing of the service was just not there. We took around 3.5-4 hours for just 9 courses. A couple came in 1.5 hours after us but still finished at the same time. We were often left waiting for the next dish with little wine from the pairing. Additionally, often times they were plating food while also trying to change out wine glasses and pour at the same time. Instead of pouring the wine first and then plating. By the end of the night we were left yawning and waiting for the meal to be over. The food was good, but the timing left us not remembering much of it.

Some restaurants offer excellent ambiance and or excellent service or excellent food, very rarely you find all aspects at a level of excellent. This is a very unique experience that we should treat ourselves to.

Lovely 4 course plus 2 dessert set menu for Valentine's Day dinner. Pace was a bit quick (makes sense since it is likely one of their busiest nights of the year), but the servers slowed down when we mentioned it. The ambience is perfect....comfortable yet elegant at the same time. Our seat in the front corner gave us such a great vantage point to enjoy the beautiful room and open kitchen. Looking forward to our next visit.

Food was pretty good. Nothing blew me away. There were some service related issues that they could improve upon, like not taking one person's plate away while the other was eating. They gave me the feeling that by course 6 or 7, they were anxious for me to leave.

This was our second visit to this outstanding and creative addition to the West Village. Service is personal, authentic, and friendly. The sommelier shares her deep knowledge and joy for wine with every pairing, adding to the experience during each of the eight course on the tasting menu. We added the caviar supplement, which was delicious, though the underlying mouse, which served as a base, was slightly overpowering to the delicate flavors of the caviar generously layered on top. Our favorite course was the Oasis Farm Egg, served in shell with a subtle complement of bottarga and sherry flavors. The best surprise was the tenderness and flavor developed in the braised fennel course. Outstanding overall, though quite pricey when supplements and wine pairings are added. But worth it for special occasions.

We went on a Saturday and there is only one selection: the 10 course tasting menu (plus additional courses if you so desire). No problem, that's what we wanted. And we were expecting an excellent wine pairing. Alas, though ambiance, food, and service certainly matched our expectations, I never had so many subpar wine matches on a tasting menu. The four German wines were all disappointing, quite a surprise given that the chef grew up in Germany and having had superb German wines on a recent trip to Heidelberg. On the plus side, a Sicilian red was a great accompaniment to what was the "main course" (squab aka pigeon). Another wonderful surprise on the food side was the Baked Kohlrabi, of which I only had bad memories from childhood. No much point to review specific items in detail, the menu changes daily, there are no house specials that you can count on having. But this is part of the fun. So, if wine matching is not that important to you, it is a great place for a celebratory dinner. By the way, there is no information about the wines on the match nor the wine list in general on the restaurant's web site. Maybe we should have followed the suggestion of our server: just pick a good bottle of wine.

The food and service were fantastic! I was primarily satisfied with the service, something you would expect at a Michelin star restaurant. We had a 10-course dinner with wine pairing and we enjoyed all of it. Primarily the fish dish with radish tea was very, very tasty. Thanks guys for a awesome night.

The two main courses were excellent - but the rest was fairly plane and the essence of the flavors did not fully come out. The ambience and interior design is amazing - the staff is friendly and eager but at times a bit uncoordinated.

I visit NYC 2-3 times every year; and I really look forward to dining out, especially at the City’s many fine dining spots. So I was so excited to rediscover Günter Seeger, having frequented his amazing restaurant in Atlanta in the 90s.

This week we visited Bouley at Home, Ayers, Marea, EMP and finally Günter Seeger. Seeger’s was easily the favorite spot on this trip for both me and my wife. His food is so delicate, the flavor profile so clean and intense, everything is as fresh as can be. It’s truly a rare high end restaurant these days that are so market driven, changing the menu almost everyday to reflect the best of what is available on that day!

The other highlight is the focus on the German wines. We have had some of the most magnificent food friendly wines I had anywhere on my visits here to Seegers.

We love it!

Had a lovely time but there were two things that diminished the experience: 1) our table was next to a very large - and very pungent - floral arrangement of lilies. The smell was really overwhelming! 2) there were two young children running around and being obnoxious. I get kids have to eat and it’s not the restaurant’s fault, but one would think an 8pm reservation on a Saturday would preclude children. Especially at a restaurant like Gunter Seeger. But maybe it’s more the fault of the parents, than the restaurant.

Impeccable service and efficient service, austere decor but with very good taste. Absolute respect for the original taste of every dish, enhancing the taste and not mixing it with sauces or ingredients that literally kill the flavor of the dish. Highly recommended.

Everything was spot on for a weeknight 10 course tasting at Günter Seeger. The chef himself was present in the open kitchen and dining room, the staff was friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable, and the food was truly exceptional. No pretension or stuffiness whatsoever.
