Minetta Tavern was opened in Greenwich Village in 1937. The Tavern was named after the Minetta Brook, which ran southwest from 23rd Street to the Hudson River. Over the course of its long history, the Tavern was frequented by various layabouts and hangers-on including Ernest Hemingway, Ezra Pound, Eugene O'Neill, E. E. Cummings, Dylan Thomas, and Joe Gould, as well as by various writers, poets, and pugilists. Since its renovation, Minetta Tavern has best been described as "Parisian steakhouse meets classic New York City tavern." We hope — and believe — that's a somewhat accurate description of the place.

    We had a terrific brunch on a beautiful Greenwich Village chilly winter afternoon. We enjoyed delicious Black Label burgers and French Dips with crisp French Fries. We will be back!

    Just a great dining experience, the bouef for two lived up to its exalted reputation, the service was impeccable, but personable and helpful. The back room is warm & historic. Hopefully, I will return soon.

    I wanted to like this place but perhaps my dishes were off. The burger named the best burger in NYC was really soggy by the time it was served to us. The steak was overpowered by the duck fat they use to keep the steak tender. Service was great but the food was a let down

    I've been before and really enjoyed it, but this time around it missed the mark. The meat was cold and the salad's fruit components icy. The place is a classic, but I wonder if they had a complacent evening. It's a really expensive meal and it was a special occasion, really wish they performed better.

    It's very busy and quite small. The tables and chairs are old and rickety on the tile floors. The booths are old. The atmosphere is very New York. The crowd is a mix but mostly New Yorkers. The food is amazing, incredible, and satisfying. Always leave feeling a sense of a buzz (I don't drink) from the food. It's delicious, clean, and the textures are perfect. Great restaurant I just wish it was bigger and was more comfortable. The usual NYC gripe.

    Minetta is my new favorite restaurant in the city. The black label burger is now what I would order if I had to choose a death row meal. The service is extremely attentive, my water glass never was below half full. It is pricey but definitely worth every penny. I love the ambiance of Minetta Tavern, you feel important just being in there.
