We live out-of-state but visit Sardi’s on every trip to New York. My 12-year-old granddaughter has been coming for 6 years now and wouldn’t miss it. The Manhattan friends we had join us exclaimed over the wonderful food and service, and they said they forget what a special place Sardi’s is. The food is so dependably excellent, the service gracious and accommodating — very old school. Our waiter said he had been there 20+ years, and his dedication showed. With the decades of caricatures of stars on the walls, there’s no better way to celebrate Broadway or to dine before a show.

Wonderful- I was worried since it's in such a tourist spot and has been around so long it wouldn't be good but we were pleasantly surprised!
We had a 5pm reservation through open table which I got that morning. 44th street was a mad house with people getting out of matinees as well as people trying to dine before the 8pm, like us.
We have a severe shellfish allergy and vegetarians in our group and the server was attentive and accommodating.
(We've often found in tourist areas the staff gets super annoyed about this, but they were very nice and reassuring). There are interesting entrees as well as traditional and reliable spaghetti and tomato sauce. Family atmosphere but still felt upscale and fancy.
Great dessert too. It’s expensive but you should expect that everywhere in Times Square.
Excellent Pre-show dinner and drinks!

Haven't been to this iconic spot in years. Took a "theater" person from the UK. We went on Saturday during matinee performances so had the whole place to ourselves--nice and quiet. Food was good, not great, but good. I knew that would be the case. Went for the atmosphere and the history. Didn't disappoint.

We came to Sardi’s for my daughter’s birthday before seeing a Broadway show. Our early afternoon visit was moderately busy yet the service was very attentive. The caricatures were great fun to discuss over our lunch. Our meals were wonderful. The salmon with ginger sweet potatoes was a big hit. The baked Alaska for dessert was a showstopper. Everyone in the restaurant stopped to watch the show. The menu says it serves two people but it suits four best. Our waiter brought a tiramisu with a candle for my daughter’s birthday which surprised and delighted her. Our visit will be a wonderful family memory.

Dining at Sardi's is always special. My husband and I attended a Broadway matinee of The Girl From North Country, enjoyed a delicious dinner at Sardi's, and attended an evening Broadway performance of Jagged Little Pill. A fabulous and delicious day.

Arrives @ 12:30 for our reservation- one table in restaurant. The interior & ambience very worn & dreary. The staff seemed tired and disinterested.
It took 45 minutes for our food to arrive- burgers & salad. I get a better salad at the grocery store in the To Go pre packaged area.
We would have had a better meal at corner pretzel stand.

The only server that was any good was the busser assigned to our table. He was very helpful every time we flagged him down. Otherwise, the service was AWFUL. The waiter came to our table once the entire dinner. Never checked on us. We sat with empty drinks for most of the meal and never got the opportunity to order more. We waited 45 minutes between apps and entrees. The cheese plate looked cheap and was served with nothing. All the food was super bland. Risotto was way undercooked. Overall, such a bummer. We spent a good amount of money and left with such a horrible taste in our mouth. Would not recommend.

We arrived at 5:30 and were promptly seated. Our waiter was very attentive. Our only complaint was that we ordered 3 different entries from their specials menu, only to learn that they were out of all 3. This would be understandable late in the evening, but not at 5:30.

It's a iconic spot, but the food was nothing to be desired and the overall establishment is in need of a face lift.

Wow. Just wow. It is like a time capsule back to an era when real
Service mattered. Just an outstanding experience. We took our 23 year old son with us and it was his first experience with real old waiters and how things are supposed to be at a fine dining restaurant.

Is it me, or is Sardi’s slipping a little?

The food is still delicious and main dining room is still the best place to eat while soaking up Broadway ambiance, but...
Our dinner felt rushed - we were bombarded with bread, menus and waitstaff the minute we sat down and we were badgered until we ordered. That may be appropriate for reservations close to curtain time, but we specifically made an early reservation to allow for sufficient time to digest our dinner.
There is no longer a wine list! Seriously? A little card with 10 wines to choose from! Seriously?

Was very disappointed in this restaurant!! The food was mediocre at best. We went there for my birthday needless to say they were very overpriced. Food had no taste and over priced. I pick this place because I saw the menu on line. Unfortunately the menu on line and in restaurant different. I asked if they could make it they said no!! Total waste.
