    There was no music which made the ambiance seem strange. The restaurant was silent when we arrived and only grew louder because it got more crowded as our time went on.

    Beautiful room. Great ambience. Good simple food. Pretty good wine list, but a bit too much noise. All was well from the point view of noise until a large party arrived at a nearby table and had a wonderful time at maximum decibels.

    A sophisticated dining oasis away from the crowds with beautiful views of Central Park. The food is creative using fresh ingredients and cannot fault the service.

    Agonizingly slow service. My daughter waved her food allergy card at the waitress, who wouldn't take it, and brought my daughter her burger with cheese, which she'd strenuously asked not to be served. Nobody cleared plates; I had to walk to the waitress and ask for my check. Love the met; love that space, but won't go back.

    Delicious cauliflower appetizer and wonderful crab cake, but the overcooked smash burger is terrible. My husband would not have ordered it if it was noted as a smash burger, and made a point of requesting a rare burger. But we'd go back for the crab cake!

    I have been going to the dining room for years; love the view of the park. This was probably one of the best meals I have had so far. My server was great.

    To dine here you must be a member or a guest of a member of the Metropolitan Museum of Art as this dining room is for members only. Reservations are required. The space is beautiful with large windows looking out on Central Park, white-cloth tables set spaciously apart and an attentive wait staff. The atmosphere is classy without being pretentious. You could anticipate spending ~$60 for an appetizer, main course and a drink. It's a treat to eat here, relaxed and enjoyable.
