The food was excellent, flavor, portion and presentation were all on spot. However, mind the terrible service. The team dropped the ball serval times. The bread accidentally fell from the table. A waitress who was nearby picked it up but didn’t offer or ask if we needed a replacement. Then while I was still eating the last few bites of the 1st course—yummy mussels btw—the server surprisingly took my plate away WITHOUT even checking and asking if I was done. The last straw was the bill. After we put the money in, our waiter took our bill and never came back to check with us if we needed any change back, let alone a very simple, basic thank you. Disappointed.

This restaurant experience was superb. We started with the mushroom consommé. Beautiful presentation and delicious. The beef short rib was so tender and flavorful. We tried four cocktails and each one was lovely. Service was outstanding. We each had dessert - the pineapple upsidedown cake and the banana split. Overall one of my favorite meals ever.

The food was cold. I repeat, the food was cold. This ruined otherwise very tasty dishes. My mushroom consomme was tepid at best. My venison wellington, which I was told by the waiter was the reason the wait between the appetizer and the main course was so long as it had to bake, was also luke warm. This was also the case with my dining companions food. Furthermore one should not have to ask 3 times for bread in a restaurant such as this. At this price point and in a restaurant by Tom Colicchio no less this was unacceptable. I would not recommend this restaurant and this is a chame as it has so much potential in such a beautiful setting.

I've been to Temple Court and the Cocktail Lounge ii Beekman Hotel more than a few times. Last time, I took 2 of my close friends who were visiting from abroad. We ate at the Temple Court and had cocktails at the lounge and had great service in both sides. Tayfun, the manager helped us in every way; with the reservation, our food selection, and the wine selection. Also, gave us some bar recommendations for the next part of our night. Would definitely recommend this place to my friends, and would definitely take my guests here, again.

It was so nice to get to try Tom's restaurant, after having him watched discuss food on television for so long. Everything was exquisite. Flavors are well paired; presentation is finessed; the staff was attentive, friendly, and they took great care of us. We left there well satieted and hoping to return at some point in the future.

A beautiful venue for a restaurant but lacking the sophistication you would expect from a chef of this caliber. The management will need to step up their game a little and train the auxiliary staff. Having a plate slide in front of you mid conversation without acknowledging you is amateur. The dishes lack the presentation you would expect: pasta drowned in its sauce, steak soaked in its juices and mushrooms on the side that looked day old, desserts that looked like what you would get in a diner.
As for service, although my waiter was attentive, there are just too many people just running around without a goal. The focus should be on the tables so that the dining experience is enhanced, not on means to an end.
Nothing about my second dining experience here stands out to return again.

They have made our anniversary so special! We were greeted with menus printed with our names on them; seated in a nice corner table and served complimentary prosecco and appetizers. Tayfun- our service manager and our waitress were both so nice and courteous and kept an eye on our ends throughout the evening without being overbearing. Steak is to die-for and everything else we tasted deserved the price. It is pricey but I wouldn't trade the ambience, food and excellent service with anything else downtown! Will definitive be back.

- Beautiful Art Deco meets English library atmosphere
- Atrium table is a must
- Short 2-4 minute walk from Fulton St subway hub.

Cons
- Table busers were a little too overeager and didn’t communicate with each other about which tables to cover.

Went for weekend brunch. Reserved table with live music. Table offered was a four-top for five people. Really upsetting that they took the reservation, but did not have an appropriate table. We moved into the main part of the restaurant. Menu is very week for a Sunday brunch. Service was slow, appetizer was not served, entree came and we had to ask for appetizer. Food was good, but significantly overshadowed by the significant service flaws.

I am mindful that reviews on Open Table are more often than not provoked by extreme experiences. In that tradition such is mine.

First the food: Fish (Hake) was not fresh. It had the mushy quality of 3-day old or previously frozen fish and was prepared with way too much salt. Inedible and sent back to the kitchen. Replaced with sea scallops which were remarkably unremarkable.

The wine: After the cork was removed from the bottle and the first tasting pour, the rest of the evening was self-service with respect to the wine service.

Unnecessarily expensive wine list. Del Posto has more offerings of wines under $150 which makes me wonder why Temple Hall struggles to assemble a list with a robust offering of wines under $200. Huh?

The ambiance: If they are going to host birthday dinner parties of 30+ people then they should have a private dining room to accommodate such events with the requisite dedicated wait staff. Instead they were seated less that 10’-0” away and consumed most of the wait staff capacity.

To be fair that party probably started one hour before our arrival so we were well aware of their presence and they did not hide their celebratory mood. We could have taken the opportunity to leave immediately upon being shown our table rather than muscle through an unpleasant evening. Our bad.

I am also mindful that there are many reviews from other patrons that include such exclamations as “best meal of my life” for which I have no doubt is likely to be true. However not for us and far from. I can think of at least one dozen or more other NYC restaurants where I have enjoyed much better food, wine, ambiance and service for equal or less money.

Lastly, professional food critics rarely (if ever) write reviews based on a single dining experience. This was my only dining experience at Temple Hall so if I were a professional I would have held this review until my third meal and perhaps had a very different review to offer. Sadly can not afford to

We went to Temple Court for brunch. The Bar room is beautiful, like stepping back in time, elegant and warm. Jazz band gave an extra touch to the atmosphere. Food was very good, nice presentation. The service was a little too slow, but that is the only complain I would have about the place. Highly recommend it!

We were celebrating a friend’s birthday. Temple Court knocked it out of the park. We were seated at a large table for 8 that felt semi-Private and had plenty of room for us to enjoy the night. The food was absolutely delicious, and the staff was very accommodating of a friend with nut allergies. I was also very impressed that Temple Court printed menus with Happy Birthday even though we were ordering off the normal menu. Well done! It certainly felt special. I will be back.

They made our dining experience very memorable. The main area “bar room” was packed with lively people on a Friday night. The dining area was much quieter. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and the attention to detail that they put forth didn’t go unnoticed. The hamachi, scallops, lobster and baked Alaska was ALL delicious! Very satisfied.
