Sardi's Ratings and Reviews
Not what we were expecting, atmosphere was more like eating in a cafeteria environment. Lighting was really bright, no music or anything, just the sound of silverware being organized. Food wasn’t that good for what you pay and service was only fair. Definitely wouldn’t recommend this place to friends or family.
We went there because we both had never been. Iconic place and worth going to once.
Everything was ok, but not worth going back to. The place is 90 years old with a famous name and rely on the name for people coming in. There were mostly tourists there in sweatpants and sneakers. This is all kind of what I expected. The problems with the place could be fixed by new management.
This was a mother/adult ( 25) daughter lunch pre-theater on a Saturday in December. The restaurant is a bit of an oasis of calm in the midst of the theater district. Service was very professional but very friendly - not stuffy at al. The restaurant and the food are not "hip" and there was no buzz. It's a bit of a throw back but only in the best way. The caricatures of the celebrities are wonderful. It may not be the right spot for everybody or for every occasion but it suited us perfectly.
We have a Christmas tradition, we go to Carmine's every year, a large family party. It snowed the Saturday we were going and had reservations at Carmine's. They were unable to switch us to the following week and they were very abrupt about it. We were able to make reservations at Sardi's instead and it was perfect. The most outstanding thing was the service, we had Mike and Tuan serving us and it made the day, they were wonderful and the service was 5 star. We were served wonderful rolls and plenty of them and additionally, some wonderful bread was served a little later. As soon as they saw the bread or butter was getting close to gone, it was replaced. We ordered the Caprese salad which was ok but should probably be taken off the menu until summer tomatoes are back. The onion soup was good and had a lot of cheese. We had the hamburger, very good, cannelloni and Bolognese all were good. Everyone really loved the desert, tiramisu, cheese cake and rice pudding, wonderful!! So what was a second choice turned out wonderful and we will return.
Taking in a show in Ny City is not complete without a trip to Sardi’s.
I’m from New England and i had some of the best Clam Chowder.
My wife had the best Cannelloni au Gratin that we have ever had - the service was good waitress seemed to be in a bit of a bad mood but the service
was good just the same.
We will return next time we are in town for a show.
Sardis is Sardis - electric, NY Theater, amazing wait staff who make everyone feel as though they are a celeb. Perhaps not the gathering spot for the very famous as it once was still so NYC up scale warm - warm friendly not stuffy - exciting. I have come here over 50 years and would never think of missing a chance to draw from its signature menu. this night had the famous cannaloni ( never disappoints cheesy and creamy and oh so delicious) though table mates had pork chops tender and tasty as well as pasta bolognaise which was wonderful this is after all an Italian restaurant - though it hides it well. Cocktails are mixed with skill , yes I had a Cosmo, wine list is a something for everyone and of course you cant miss dessert - all good. Great experience !
When we are in NYC, we always dine at Sardi’s. It is ideally located in the the theatre district for dinner before or after a show. The food and wine is good value for the money. The staff are long-time loyal employees giving very cordial and efficient service.
If you are a regular visitor to New York and you haven't been to Sardi's you are missing a treat! The dining room is festooned with drawings of Broadway stars past and present. The wait staff is experienced and the food is consistently delicious! Don't miss the Caesar salad or the lovely cannelloni with béchamel sauce.
Location first !
Right across the street or on the same block from five Broadway theaters. Could not be easier for lunch or dinner . Portions huge.
Cobb salads were great. Fettechini bolognaise was served hot . Figured I would try something different . It was okay .
I really wanted a sandwich like a turkey BLT, but only came as a crabmeat BLT, but because if the rush, no substitutions. Served breads by a waiter. Tables of six got bread baskets. We were three and didn't .
Iconic restaurant for Broadway theater pre and post dining. Character sketches of famous actors and celebrities cover the walls. Conversation, energy fills the room. The French onion soup is flavorful with essence of sweet onions. The clam chowder is plentiful with clams, flavor; not the thick cream new england style. The cannelloni is classic beef and pork crepe in a tasty bechemel sauce. The Caesar salad is classic with oil, romaine, lemon, anchovies and freshly ground black pepper.
Sardi's was everything we could have hoped for and then some - while waiting for our reservation, we had excellent drinks at the bar, and took the opportunity to begin scoping out the celebrity walls - so great - which continued throughout the meal. The food was terrific, although one of our party wasn't happy with her choice. Dessert was a spectacular affair, and while everything was scrumptious, we all agreed that of our choices, the mousse was the yummiest. Our waiter took excellent care of us, and included birthday candles on the birthday girl's dessert, making the event all the more special. Highly recommend visiting Sardi's, but make a reservation - when we went, the wait time was 2 hours - but our table was ready exactly at the appointed time. It was the perfect place to celebrate a birthday, and we can't wait to go back!
Storied but disappointing iconic restaurant. We were in the city for a pleasure trip and couldn’t get into Carmine’s. Sardi’s is famous, but the key words are “used to be.” What a great place it has been, could be. It appears they are dialing it in with service food. We ordered the caprese tomato and mozzarella. The mozzarella was rubbery and the balsamic reduction poor quality. We also had the chicken soup appetizer. The soup was fair and nothing special. We decided not to waste our time or money on the entrees. I am surprised management has allowed such a great place to deteriorate in quality. Ask the locals and they will send you to Carmine’s. Sardi’s could be but chooses not to be the star of the city. If you want proof of this review, just try to book a table at each place and see how much availability there is for each. Better book early for Carmine’s. You can walk in at Sardi’s.
My twin sister and I were there on December 7 to celebrate our birthday. She hadn’t been there and really enjoyed it. We had the pri fix dinner which was very good. We both had the crab cakes which were excellent. She had cheesecake and I the rice pudding for dessert . I had spinach cannelloni and she had tomato/mozzarella salad to start the meal. The waiter heard us tell our table neighbors it was our birthday. He had a candle put on our desserts. Nice touch. Since it was a Thursday, everyone had already gone to the evening performances so the restaurant was relatively quiet. I have been to sardi’s Several times and it’s always a treat.
