Tavern 62 by David Burke Ratings and Reviews
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!!
I came here with my family to celebrate my birthday. I chose this restaurant because I read amazing reviews about it and I heard David Burke is a good chef. Even so, this has to be the worse dining experience I’ve ever had. The waiter and staff were nice but the food was bland in terms of flavor. We each ordered an appetizer. The crab cake and tuna tartare we’re good but I felt the angry lobster dumplings could have been better. The main courses were horrible. We order the roasted chicken and two orders of the short rib. The chicken was bland and had zero flavor. The short rib lacked in flavor as well. We were very disappointed. The appetizers and the sides were the only things we enjoyed.We paid $200 for three people just to have bland food.
Tavern 62 really stepped up to the plate for Restaurant week!The food was great, the staff was honest on their favorite dishes and the portions were big for a typical restaurant week menu! Highly recommend it! Added touch was that David loves to work the floor and check on his guests!
Came here for NY restaurant week on a date with my boyfriend. The food was outstanding, David Burke definitely knows how to put a fun spin on some classic dishes. The services was incredible, our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. The cocktails are original and delicious, we got 2 rounds. I would definitely recommend for any occasion!
I eat at Tavern 62 regularly and this was my second time in the same week. We sat in the bar area at one of the tables and unfortunately the service was subpar. There is minimal staff foot traffic so getting salt/pepper/olive oil was incredibly challenging. The food was fine/good but not up to their regular quality. I'm not sure if that was because it was restaurant week or not but it was night and day compared to the food just days before. While I didn't taste it, my friends were terribly disappointed with the apple tart. I'll definitely be back but this trip was definitely on the less favorable side.
The candied bacon was outstanding; the pork shank was a massive hunk of incredible meat; my boyfriend’s foie gras was delicate and delicious; and the desserts, including apple tart and panna cotta, were yum! The meal was made complete with a mint marshmallow palette cleanser. Way to go to Tavern62.
Everything was good just the service needed some improvement. I had to keep getting his attention and our order was incomplete. And I had to keep asking for another drink .He was too busy socializing with the bartender.
Food was tasty. I had the crab cake covered with pretzel sticks, Bronzino was delicious. And the cheese cake lollipops were yummy .
I’ll be back !!!
A little underwhelming. I’ve been to his other restaurants (eg Townhouse, Fishtail) a bunch of times when they were still open and had great experiences, which is why I wanted to try Tavern. However the food left something to be desired and the service was cold and unwelcoming. It was Sunday night service too, so not like it was packed.
We got there on time for our reservation and had to wait 10 or 15 minutes for tables to be cleaned off, which is fine. But the entire restaurant staff seemed to be scrambling to do stuff downstairs dropping dishes and stuff, but didn’t look like they were short staffed. It’s not the ambience you want to convey to diners walking in. After we were seated, our server came and handed us the menus without even saying hi; just “here are the menus” and “tap or sparkling?” He also did not note the specials. My wife is gluten free and we asked for gluten free bread and the server didn’t even look like he knew what gluten free was and just kind of dismissed our request.
The food was OK, but not as good as I remember. David Burke was in the restaurant too and walked past us, but not sure how much overseeing he actually does in the kitchen.
We are from Connecticut and took the train to NYC for the day. I had reservations at the Tavern 62 due to the menu selection and it being restaurant week. I felt they had a little bit of everything for everyone. We ordered the lobster dumplings, pretzel crab cakes, bison rib, chicken risotto and the crème brûlée,. Everything was amazing, I only wish there were more lobster dumplings, as they only served two. The pretzel crab cakes were delicious. My husband loved the bison ribs, it fell right off the bone, no need for a knife! The chicken entree was also very good, the chicken was cooked perfectly and of course the crème brûlée, was delicious! Our server, Anthony V. was also great! When we finished eating , our plates were promptly removed. He also had a fabulous alcohol-free drink made for me. I would highly recommend Tavern 62! It is definitely a restaurant we will be going back to.
Hostess was rude, we arrived early and were basically scolded for being 15min early and asked to wait by the bar or somewhere else. Then upon the time of our res the hostess had forgotten that we were there and never came to get us so we ended up getting seated late after we inquired about the table a couple of times. Food was pretty good and our server was friendly but the rest of the wait staff were expressionless. For the price of the food and the overall experience...don’t think we will be dining here again.
The combination of ambiance, food, service, good wine made this just great. The setting is gorgeous. It's an intimate yet upbeat lively interior in a beautifully renovated brownstone. There are three eating rooms upstairs -- one of which holds a large table in a quasi private area. The food is lovely. The crab cake appetizer was very unique and delicious, not your daily diner crab cake! I was happy to see David Burke's bacon -- oo la la. It was also an exceptional beet salad. We opted for the restaurant week menu and the scallops were so good, as were the wines by the glass. We will definitely return.
We went during restaurant week and got a great deal but definitely will be back. The food was good, I got the bacon for appetizer and it was excellent. The filet mignon was a good size but the bison short ribs was a small portion. Desert was good, I had the creme brûlée which was smooth, not very rich. The service was the best, the waiter and servers were all super friendly. We were seated quickly though we probably got the worst table on the house, it was noisy and busy, but that was our bad luck.
