The service was better than the food . The food was good. However, I did not consider it worth the price. We went for Mother's Day brunch. The chicken & waffles were good; not great & not better than Maiden Pickles. The steak & eggs were fine. There were 3 of us. Prefix menu was $50 per person 3 courses (appetizer, main & dessert). Dessert was ok as well. I think I expected more in regards to the food because it's David Burke's restuarant.

This was my third visit to this restaurant . It was nearly empty but I was seated near five screaming women who never seemed to have heard that indoors it is actually more polite to use a speaking voice . The waiter was very friendly but there was the usual battle of how many times the glasses could be topped up in the course of one dinner. The bacon was as good as always . The steak for 60 dollars tasted mostly of salt which means there was no chef but a cook. The chicken was a boneless pile that was not light and crisp but a mass of chicken meat with an uninspired gravy. The short rib dish could have been a joke. Two shrimp on top of a one and half cubic inches of meat. A real deal at 39 dollars! It was my last time there I bet. And since the restaurant was nearly empty on Sunday night at 8pm, it obvious that other guests in the past feel the same way. I would go somewhere else. It is now uninspired and expensive pub food.

Brought work colleagues from out of town. They are in the hospitality industry and difficult to impressed. But the bacon cloths line started off their experience either sweet, Smokey and salt flavors. The Jersey short rib, seafood and chicken entrees were all a home run. Great friends top off the dinner conversation with delicious cocktails... Mohetos and Manhattans oh my! All made for a delicious and fun evening, thank you!

Food, service and overall dining experience was outstanding. Visiting from out of town but will definitely return. Was there on Sunday night, which was half-price bottles of wine. Gives you an opportunity to try some nice bottles of wine for reasonable restaurant pricing. But even without that dining experience is wonderful.

Hasn’t David Burke been in the restaurant biz for decades? Seems his front-of-the-house could be completely polished and excellent by now. Not so.
We had a 7:45 Friday evening reservation. Cocktail order arrived misunderstood. Food OK, some garnishes clunky and heavy. But it was really the overall service that was less than smooth (our assigned waiter was attentive and had to run interference for the rest of the staff). He quickly rectified the old-fashioned order that came only as bourbon. Back waiters cleared bread plates and butter knives, leaving the bread and butter? But what really puzzled and peeved us was the floor staff collecting the table votives, (not terribly late for a Friday eve, 9:30, perhaps) essentially extinguishing ambiance with new tables recently seated and others still attempting to enjoy their meals, signaling everyone to ‘amscray’. Tacky. Restaurants are in the hospitality industry, aren’t they? I’ve been in cheap chains with better attention to detail and consideration to the diners. When I’m forking over a lot of dough to eat in your establishment with your name on the plates, please give customers the experience they expect and have paid for.

I have been eating at Burke's restaurants for more years than I can count. last night was a disaster on many levels. prices are ridiculous. $22 for a martini. really?? wine by the glass $19? really, portion size of tuna tartare was tiny, but I mean tiny. and then there was the duck. 5 or 6 miniscule slices of overcooked duck with some rock hard side that I think was promoted as foie gras. all I can say is don't go. save your money. btw, burke was there last night. obviously counting his money and not monitoring the kitchen. too bad. I sure adored your restaurants up until now.

This was my second visit to the beautifully redecorated space that used to be known as Fishtails whose brightly painted walls have been replaced with warm dark wood paneling. As the names indicate the new menu leans much more towards land based dishes than those of the sea and beef, pork and lamb selections were delicious. Fortunately for piscators, oysters, angry lobster and black pasta with ocean critters also adorn the menu. Delicious cocktails and desserts bookended the meal.

We had a warm greeting and were quickly shown to our table. The menu had many selections that would satisfy any pallet. We chose the hearty 22 oz. bone-in rib eye to share; way too much for one person. The brussel sprouts were a bit on the sparse side, but delicious. The star of the night was the pork belly cooked into the brussel sprouts. Awesome!! Profiteroles the size of a child's head were scrumptious and had a cheesy accent. The sommelier helped in selecting a red wine that held up well to the heavy dishes. A stellar evening; thank you staff at BLT NYC.

Don't bother. This restaurant looks great but is trying to punch above its weight. Our waiter was nice but didn't have all the information about the specials. The Cesar salad was the equivalent of two pieces of lettuce and 1/2 a soft boiled egg with a lackluster dressing...for $18 it's almost comical. The salmon dish is fine but really the best part of it was the cauliflower steak and not the salmon so I'd skip that. The pork dish is right out of the Flinestones and the exact opposite of the salad in terms of size but still not really anything to get excited about. Perhaps it was an off night - it was a Monday but for the rate they are charging they need to up their game.

We felt rushed by our waiter and the staff who continually came to our table to take the order and to clear up the table. I had been to this restaurant previously and absolutely loved it. This time, I found my meal practically inedible and the wait staff quite annoying.

I like this place and have eaten there several times. That said, I took my partner for a nice dinner and we both got the black pasta w/ seafood. It was so one-note hot—like someone had dumped a lot of cayenne pepper in—that it was pretty inedible and a complete disappointment.

Fantastic food, incredible service. My wife and I went to celebrate the Anniversary of our first date. While the may seem strange, we got married on Xmas Eve, so we really have a hard time celebrating it as we're normally too busy wrapping presents - hence why we celebrate the first date.

We were sat at our table and were immediately greeted with 2 flutes of Champagne and wished a Happy Anniversary. This set the tone for our entire visit. We did the 3 course brunch prix fixe for $50 - well worth it in my book. Also got an order of the Candied, Clothesline Bacon (A must!) along with multiple Mimosas. The Pretzel Crusted Crabcake Benedict did not disappoint, but wait - there's more... Order the Baked Alaska, it's incredible to look at as well as eat.

We'll definitely go back and do this again - just not going to wait until next year.

After reading reviews by girlfriend and I were excited to try this place.... unfortunately, the food and service were absolutely horrible. Neither of us would ever go back to Tavern62. It took well over 10 minutes to get menus once seated at the table, my girlfriend ordered the pork as her main and it was literally all fat - so after sending it back and changing to salmon the dish came back very undercooked (asked for medium, definitely got rare). I had the chicken dish and it was nothing special, chicken you could argue was slightly dry and flavors were rather bland with no unique aspects. Overall, save your money and spend it elsewhere, plenty of delicious places in NYC I would rather go.

We went for restaurant week dinner. The best part of the meal, by far, were the appetizers. The lobster dumplings and octopus chorizo skewers were both delicious - wish there had been more than 2 for each! The short rib was largely flavorless and the salmon was a muddled entree that wasn't any better than a home cooked version. The creme brûlée was great but the butterscotch pudding was blah. What really ruined the meal was the horrible service. Way worse than local neighborhood joins where you pay a fraction of the cost. We won't be back!!
