    Sardi's still maintains that old school, elegant fine dining experience, in its singularly theatrical and enchanting dining room. The entire staff from Maitre'D to the wait staff are genuinely caring, hospitable, and kind. The food (after not having visited for a while) was really fresh - in presentation and taste. For a really great meal prior to the show, Sardi's still delivers a top-notch experience. Thanks, Sardi's.

    We loved our first visit to Sardi's. From the moment we arrived for our reservation, the staff took excellent care of us. The meal was delicious especially the appetizer for two with asparagus, mellon, olives as well as the steak -- so tender. We arrived at 6 and were done by 7:30 -- on time to get to our Broadway show next door. Thank you to everyone for a wonderful dinner and evening.

    The French onion soup was one of the best I ever had, chock full of onions, sherry and melted cheese - perfect! The highly praised spinach cannelloni left me disappointed. It was very rich and completely overwhelmed by the sauce. The martini was perfect, as was the coffee. But the best was our server (I’m sorry I forgot her name, maybe Donna, part of team 6) was superb! She timed our courses perfectly and even gave us a brief history of the restaurant and the caricatures. She really made our visit special as did all the attentive staff making us want to return very soon! Thank you! And two of the stars from POTUS came in (Lea DeLaria and Suzy Nakamura) and we clapped for them (as we just saw the show). They came over to our table to take pics with us. And Vanessa Williams was dining upstairs. That’s the beauty of Sardi’s. Stars and commoners sharing life with a respectful and grateful celebration of good food, drinks and laughter!!! Here’s to the next 100 years Sardi’s!

    For any musical theatre fan, Sardi's is or should be, or was a must. I believe even though they continue doing the artist/performer cartoons and unveiling them, the restaurant, as well as the menu, is super dated. They take a while to bring the food, the flavors are not there and as with everything in New York it is just as pricey. The lighting is dull, the design is dated...Sardi's should be an unforgettable experience like it was back in the 80s and 90s. The restaurant feels abandoned practically. I will take my dining experiences elsewhere.

    I took my 20 year old daughter to a place I had been treated to as a high school student in NYC. I had remembered the place as an iconic theatre standby for the RatPack. While the room was busy with diners we were lucky to have a small table under the Kristin Chenowith caricature which delighted my daughter. Food was excellent, service impeccable, and we had a very happy evening. It’s a relief to know that the elegance I had recalled is still in force. Bravo to all at Sardis.

    The place would be so much better if the food was reasonable. I would say that it was very bland overpriced and outdated. The only real advantage of going there is that it’s right in the heart of the theater district but don’t expect good food it’s very mediocre at best

    12:15 reservation to make a 2:00 theater curtain a few doors away. At 1:00 there was no food and had to speak with host. A few minutes later first course arrived, then second course while we were eating our first course. Tried to put down second course while we were eating . Of course no time for dessert that granddaughter was looking forward to. A shame this classic historical restaurant has come to this.

    An iconic room in the Theater District. Sadly no longer open for post-theater dining, when Broadway regulars used to fill the room, but the pre-theater tourist crowd was lively.

    Service was excellent- Polite- not rushed- attentive. Washroom attendant, ISA, was exceptionally attentive. When asked how long she had been employed at Sardi’s, she said- 20 years! That is a loyal employee and she was an excellent representative who was cordial and polite to all! Please tell her that she is appreciated.

    The evening at Sardis started out just fine. We had a fairly narrow window of time between a matinee and an evening show—which we made clear. The evening went south with the waiter’s inexperience or ineptitude. Salads were served to half the table but not the other half. The worst was waiting for the check—much too long and when it finally arrived was totally mixed up. We were very disappointed. Sardis has been a favorite over many trips to NYC.

    Been to Sardi’s scores of times pre theater going back to my childhood. Had many a late night at the bar after theater. Of course that was all before Covid. What returned is not just a shadow of its once glorious past, but a mockery of it. The menu is pared to maybe half of what it once was and devoid of favorites like Steak Tartare. The “Jumbo” shrimp are at best large and more likely mediums, the venerable crab cakes are now shrimp cakes. The appetizer for two has removed the truffle pate and other delicacies. And yes, I know that for years before Covid Sardi’s became a pre theater Meca for out-of-towners, but it still had class. Today it has an instagram posing spot right in the entrance. We saw a couple sit down next to us, never pick up a menu, snapping pictures of themselves at all angels, and then get up and leave - napkins never unfolded; men wear shorts and tank tops. As for the food - pedestrian at best - thousands Greek-owned diners in the tri state would definitely excelled over Sardii’s in the food department. Might be time for this once-grand intuition to stop embarrassing itself to move to Orlando.
