    We had to most wonderful dining experience at Gunter Seeger. It was my wife's birthday and Angie called to confirm my reservation and helped me make her experience extra special. Every member of the team is there to make your meal a memorable one. From the moment you walk in the door every experience is superb. We had the 8 course menu but with all of the additions and extras we received it was 12 courses. The menu is orchestrated beautifully. Our favorites were the Foie Gras and Sugar Snap Pea Veloute. The table side cheese course was heavenly. We loved the open kitchen and being able to watch the chefs prepare our dishes. The wine list was excellent with many exceptional choices. To end our night my wife received in addition to the rhubarb gratine, a birthday dessert of raspberry chocolate mousse with a candle to make a wish. Every step was well thought out and executed effortlessly. Our 3 hour dining experience could not be beat. With their outstanding service, along with the value and cost of the meal, you will not find anything better in fine dining in the city. They are well on their way to more Michelin Stars!

    What a wonderful evening! We came to the restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday. We did the 4 course tasting menu with an added item. The courses were perfect. We did ask for a substitute for one course and they did with no qualms. The highlight of the evening was being guided to the immaculate clean kitchen and being introduced to Chef Seeger. Such a delightful man. We are definitely coming back!

    We had a great experience at Günter Seeger. The dining room is beautiful,with tables spaced so that it feels very private. Every person who works there is a joy to deal with. They were very flexible on alternatives to the fixed menu. Two of us did not want veal tartare; they replaced, it without a moments hesitation, with a perfect egg dish. The soft shell crab and the steak both had extraordinary flavor. The wine pairings were very well matched to the food. They only need to fill the most beautiful wine glasses a little more!

    Trust is perhaps the one thing New Yorkers are most reticent about giving up, we have good reason to doubt almost everyone and everything. Trust is the underlying driving force behind a tasting menu, so it is most important that a truly great chef earns your trust immediately so that you, as the customer, can enjoy your experience to the fullest, the way your host, the chef, planned it. Gunter Seeger succeeds early on, and once your reticence is gone, you can truly bathe in the dining experience of a lifetime, which the chef does deliver. Service was spectacular. Your first instinct may be that these dishes at these moderate sizes are not going to fill you up and you may need to stop for pizza later, but trust me, the chef knows this is in your mind too, and does not disappoint. Do not miss the opportunity to have the greatest culinary night of your life at Gunter Seeger. I guarantee it will exceed your expectations !!

    Very nice experience and meal. The reason why I’m giving it a 3/5 is that the service was incredibly slow and the meal was just way too long. Four hours for just eight courses: that is really excessive, we were almost desperate after all the waiting. The waiters and sommelier were very nice though, and the food was delicious.

    My husband and I chose Günter Seeger as a destination restaurant to celebrate my birthday, making a reservation for the 8-course tasting menu offered in the dining room. Before arrival, my husband inquired about the wine menu and the sommelier replied straight away. We decided to add the wine pairing, which did not disappoint, in fact I would say it definitely added to the overall experience. Our meal at Günter Seeger was nothing short of superb, start to finish, with impeccable service, a thoughtful, well-executed tasting menu, and a thoroughly elegant setting to enjoy it all in. The kitchen is open so you can see the staff at work, as well as Chef Seeger. The dining room isn’t all that big, so it feels quite intimate to be so close to the kitchen like that. You can see the kitchen from nearly every seat in the house although they also have a Chef’s Table. For the food, each dish was a delightful celebration of the featured ingredient, like the Four Sensations of a Farm Egg and White Asparagus Velouté. The dessert was a simply perfect expression of a wild Strawberry. Every detail of our experience was spot on, and it was a lovely and memorable birthday celebration. I can’t wait to come back.

    My wife and I are fortunate enough to have happened upon Gunther Seeger when it opened and this is our 8th or 9th visit. The chef and staff care about the food and your experience. It has met or exceeded our expectations on each occasion. The last included some wonderful venison, salmon tart, and sea urchin. The cheese course and dessert brought the meal to a satisfying conclusion.

    Some of the best food in New York with a menu that changes daily and only allows you to choose a short or a long menu. But we have hardly ever had a dish that was less than perfect. A seeming simplicity masks a complete mastery of French cooking technique. Add beautiful flowers, well-spaced tables and calm friendly service and you have as close to perfection as can be found in New York.

    The decor and ambiance was just perfect. We were greeted with such warmth. However, the timing of the service was just not there. We took around 3.5-4 hours for just 9 courses. A couple came in 1.5 hours after us but still finished at the same time. We were often left waiting for the next dish with little wine from the pairing. Additionally, often times they were plating food while also trying to change out wine glasses and pour at the same time. Instead of pouring the wine first and then plating. By the end of the night we were left yawning and waiting for the meal to be over. The food was good, but the timing left us not remembering much of it.

    Lovely 4 course plus 2 dessert set menu for Valentine's Day dinner. Pace was a bit quick (makes sense since it is likely one of their busiest nights of the year), but the servers slowed down when we mentioned it. The ambience is perfect....comfortable yet elegant at the same time. Our seat in the front corner gave us such a great vantage point to enjoy the beautiful room and open kitchen. Looking forward to our next visit.

    Food was pretty good. Nothing blew me away. There were some service related issues that they could improve upon, like not taking one person's plate away while the other was eating. They gave me the feeling that by course 6 or 7, they were anxious for me to leave.

    This was our second visit to this outstanding and creative addition to the West Village. Service is personal, authentic, and friendly. The sommelier shares her deep knowledge and joy for wine with every pairing, adding to the experience during each of the eight course on the tasting menu. We added the caviar supplement, which was delicious, though the underlying mouse, which served as a base, was slightly overpowering to the delicate flavors of the caviar generously layered on top. Our favorite course was the Oasis Farm Egg, served in shell with a subtle complement of bottarga and sherry flavors. The best surprise was the tenderness and flavor developed in the braised fennel course. Outstanding overall, though quite pricey when supplements and wine pairings are added. But worth it for special occasions.

    We went on a Saturday and there is only one selection: the 10 course tasting menu (plus additional courses if you so desire). No problem, that's what we wanted. And we were expecting an excellent wine pairing. Alas, though ambiance, food, and service certainly matched our expectations, I never had so many subpar wine matches on a tasting menu. The four German wines were all disappointing, quite a surprise given that the chef grew up in Germany and having had superb German wines on a recent trip to Heidelberg. On the plus side, a Sicilian red was a great accompaniment to what was the "main course" (squab aka pigeon). Another wonderful surprise on the food side was the Baked Kohlrabi, of which I only had bad memories from childhood. No much point to review specific items in detail, the menu changes daily, there are no house specials that you can count on having. But this is part of the fun. So, if wine matching is not that important to you, it is a great place for a celebratory dinner. By the way, there is no information about the wines on the match nor the wine list in general on the restaurant's web site. Maybe we should have followed the suggestion of our server: just pick a good bottle of wine.
