P.J. Clarke's - Third Avenue
Very good experience - thank you!
It was awesome
Everything was fine except for the male host that evening. We had a reservation and still waited nearly 30 minutes for a table. My husband showed his agitation and the man proceeded to get in my husbands personal space, yelled at him in front of quests and then told us GOOD LUCK GETTING A TABLE (thankfully we were sit) I literally had to get between him and my husband because it looked like the guy was trying to physical and by physically intimidating. I was shocked. Thankfully we were eventually sat I wish wish it hadn’t involved a public scene from an employee. I would recommend PJ’s but I would tell people to watch out for the older male host. He is horrendous.
Had an open table reservation was told by Manager can’t sit you till your time go get a drink at bar ... bar was loaded with drunks so decided to wait it out . Was able to get a table shortly there after. But manger didn’t seem to be that accommodating at first then came around . Kinda spoiled it
The customer service experience was demoted because of they way we were treated. Funny I have been a customer for a good thirty years ! Just thought he could have bit nicer!
We enjoyed our dinner at P. J. Clarke's. Especially the waiter, I wish I could remember his name.
My seven year old granddaughter said dinner was the highlight of her trip to NYC. And we went to FAO Schwartz! She has a keen sense of humor and was amused by his enjoyable attention to her. Food was great also.
First visit since the 80s and enjoyed a great burger lunch with friends. Nice service, good patron vibe and fab food. What more could you ask for? Do not hesitate. Enjoy, enjoy.....
Thanks for the great review Bill. Happy to have you join us again after all those years.
We had a fabulous experience. We always try to keep an evening free on our annual NYC stay, to dine at PJ CLARKES. Food, atmosphere and service are always top class. A huge thank you to Anthony our waiter, who really looked after us. Surprised us with a lovely treat at the end, with a delicious birthday cheesecake. Thank you.
Thanks for always making time for us. Happy to have you in. I’ll be sure to to share your kind words with Anthony.
Dinner was delicious! And the service was fabulous.
Thanks for the great review!
Pancakes were soooo good!
Glad you enjoyed them. Hope you finished that whole stack!
Love this place. And Pat was the best waitress we could ask for!!!
Thanks Owen! I’ll be sure to share your praise with Pat.
Thanks Helen! Hope to see you again soon.
Great food and ambiance. A little too loud and we were kinda kicked out after 1 having been there for just a little over one hour because they needed the table. That kinda sucked since I was catching up with an old friend after a long time. Anyways, overall good.
Very happy to hear that you enjoyed catching up but I definitely want to apologize for you being asked to leave the table. That’s definitely not something we ever want to do. I would like to hear more about this and make it up to you. Please reach out when you can. -Michael Long General Manager
Excellent food, reasonably priced. Pleasant environment and great service.
Thanks Andrew! Hope to have you back again soon.
Fun, pub-like atmosphere with above par, food. Nice selections like the deviled eggs, for appetizers. Will be back!
Thanks Janice! We’re looking forward to your return.
Manager went above and beyond for my daughters. It was our first time here and the food was very good!
Always happy to provide a little extra chocolate sauce. Hope to see you and the family back again soon.
Great neighborhood place. Delicious food at a reasonable price.
Thanks for the great review!
Restaurant and bar were busy but we were seated promptly. Service was excellent - cordial and attentive but not intrusive. Quality of the dishes ordered were consistent with my prior visits. Don’t usually order dessert but the s’mores Sunday was a pleasant surprise
Thanks for the great review! That S’mores Sundae is one of my favorite desserts anywhere.
Packed, loud and overpriced. The best item was the sour cream mashed potatoes but not worth $9. Ordered the New York medium rare with the bernaise, not memorable or enough flavor. Got the wedge, shrimp cocktail and the shishito peppers, all were just ok. The drinks were not very good either. Try Valerie instead, that place is amazing and similar fare.
I will be back. The place is cozy and busy. Buzzing with good atmosphere and pleasant service. Burgers to die for and huge appetisers to share. Thoroughly enjoyed it!
Thanks for the great review Mark! Looking forward to your return.
French fries were terrible and fir that price they shouldn’t be !!!
So sorry to hear that Linda. Was it that they were too cold, overcooked, undercooked? Normally our fries are delicious (its a struggle not to snack on them all day).
Fantastic food and fun atmosphere at this iconic bar and restaurant, great service and very enjoyable lunchtime visit.
Thanks for the great review!
I loved the restaurant and the food.
Thansk for the great review!
Always a pleasant experience when we visit- the staff is awesome!
Thanks for the great review!
Food is good but not exceptional. The place is hopping and cheerful but also very, very loud. Service is great.
Thank you for your feedback Kate. We are currently working on solving the noise issue. I am glad to hear that our staff was attentive and helped to improve upon your experience but I'm sorry to hear that you were not wowed by the food. Hopefully we get another chance to impress you.
Look, a restaurant doesn't stay open for 130 years if it's mediocre. P.J. Clarke's consistently rocks my world. They have a gluten free bun for their famous burger, which is so appreciated. I love this place!
Thanks for the great review Thomas! Folks like you will help us go for another 130.
another great evening at PJ Clarkes. everything was perfect the food, the ambiance, the table cloth, and especially the wonderful staff particularly the lovely Pat and Victor. Cam't reccommend this place enough
thanks again and be back soon
Thanks Sean! I will be sure to share your praise with Pat and Viktor.
Great food and atmosphere, our waiter really made the meal for us!
Thanks for the great review! So glad you had a good time. Would you mind sharing the name of your server so I can share with them your feedback?
Great busboy Renee!!
Thanks Rachael. Rene is a great guy and an excellent busboy. We love having him as a part of our family. Glad to hear you think so too.
Food good but impossible to talk.
I’m glad you enjoyed the food. We are currently working on ways to lessen the clamor of our busy dining room.
Ok burger.. very fast service. Very dark and loud.
We had a delicious brunch! The atmosphere, the food, the service were all wonderful. I can’t wait to go back!
Thanks for the great review Elizabeth! Can’t wait to have you join us again.
Delicious burgers and fries!!
Good, professional service & elevated classic pub food.
Thanks for the nice review!
Wonderful lunch! Great hamburger and chicken sandwich. French fries are amazing!!!
Thanks Kathi! Hope to see you again soon.
Solid burger. Classic place.
One of the old "classic" NYC pubs. Good frite-style fries and basic pub food. Excellent burgers. Oysters are clearly an upsell. Nobody at our table ventured toward seafood or salads. Service was exceptionally fast, noise level required shouting to be heard. Bottom line: come here for good burgers and other bar food, but not a place to bring a date for conversation!
I’m glad you enjoyed the burgers and the service. We are aware of the noise level in the dining that has been exacerbated by some recent renovations. We are in the process of finding a solution that will not disrupt service or the decor of the dining room.
Excellent service. Burger was outstanding as was calamari.
Thanks for the great review Bill! Hope to have you join us again soon.
Loud but interesting crowd, so-so food but pretty good, attentive service.
Glad you found our crowd interesting Dave, we certainly can draw in the wide array of folks into the dining room. We do have some cozy nook tables available for you on your next visit if you are looking for a quieter experience.
Seating arrangement was awful, sitting in the aisle outside woman’s room. Was not comfortable for two 75 year olds who come every month after visit to Sloan
I apologize for the table you were given during this visit. I’d be happy to get you a better spot upon your return. - Michael Long General Manager
Too dark could not read menu
Was told to use the flashlight in my phone
I would Food was very good portion size was small for example I had a $20 hamburger it was good but a $20 hamburger really
I’m glad you found the burger tasty. We try to remain competitive in our pricing while offering top quality product. As for the lighting, we are exploring options to improve the lighting in the main dining room while continuing to keep the ambience and decor true to our roots as a 19th century establishment.
