Iconic New York restaurant that continues to serve fine food to Broadway audieces before and after shows. It is located in the heart of the theater district near Times Square and easy walking distance to most theaters. The walls are lined with autographed sketches of hundreds of famous Broadway stars.

Extremely overpriced for quality and presentation of food. Service is mediocre and the venue is incredibly dated and dingy.

Mixed. Classic crepe, very good as appetizer. Crab cakes very good. Meatball:pasta dish, average at best. Minestrone, full of veggies but surprisingly not flavorful. Sirloin, undercooked (asked for medium but got a solid medium rare, some might consider rare), but bigger issue is that it was bland. Wine by the glass options, below average. Service was attentive.

I guess I’m glad we had an opp to take our family to the classic Sardi’s and enjoyed the caricatures, but would absolutely not come back. I’m sure there’s other good things in the menu, but we wouldn’t venture back, especially for the price. Not a good value at all for, on the whole, an average food experience.

Always wanted to eat here, challenge with gaining servers attention as he seemed to have too many tables. Typical pre Broadway show rush. Good food, but pricey, great ambiance

I went here for my anniversary two nights ago. We had a late night reservation and arrived early. The seated us with no problem. The food was great, the waiter was so nice and attentive. The place has a very cool vibe to it. I can’t wait to go back.

Service was a little slow but friendly. The place was pretty empty at 8:30 on Saturday night. The cheese board was excellent. I ordered the salmon special with ginger sweet potatoes which was delicious. The spinach was tasty but a little cold. My companion ordered spaghetti & meatballs and was not overly impressed. Wine list seemed small for anyone looking for low to mid budget wine. The atmosphere was fun- great music (Sinatra) and looking at the famous pictures in the wall was interesting.

Very disappointed with the meal at Sardi's. The New York Strip was poorly prepared and flavorless and served cold. Dinner salad consisted of lettuce and dressing only. Waiter never checked to see how the meal was.

I did recommend it to a friend. That's who I was there with.
The food was good and service was attentive.
what I liked best was the fact that we were left to chat for a long time, long after the room emptied out. No one rushed us or hinted that we should get a move on. This was great as I was with friends I see rarely and we had lots to catch up on.
I'll definitely be back, especially to see the caricature of Kermit!

It was a last minute decision to get a light dinner before the theatre. Sardis was a perfect location, right across from the Shubert Theatre. We were able to relax, have wine and split a delicious Sardis special appetizer. Couldn’t have asked for more!

My evening at Sardi's was excellent. It was warm and inviting. The service and the people were on point. My water glass was never empty. My waiter was attentive. My food was delicious and the atmosphere was cozy and perfect for my 'date night'. I will definitely recommend to a friend.

Only complaint is that the booth section was tight fitting. The party next to us had some issues getting into their table and then getting out again. The table areas did not seem to have this issue. If you don't sit in the booth section you'll be fine. Otherwise the food was great and the service was wonderful.

Feel like an old school celebrity at Sardi’s, where the food and service are both top notch. Check out all the Broadway caricatures on the wall while you dine. Or sit in the upstairs bar for a birds-eye view of Broadway.

We had a really nice time. We were promptly greeted by our host and taken to our table right away. The service staff were outstanding. Never did our drinks go empty and the food was out promptly. Our waitress was helpful to my young daughter who was fascinated by the caricatures of celebrities in the wall. The waitress took her around to find some of them from a must see list she had compiled.
The food was just okay. Nothing was bad, but nothing was noteworthy either. I had salmon, mashed sweet potato and spinach. She had scallops with risotto and mixed vegetables. My salmon was slightly more cooked than I like but still tasty. The sides were ok. Her scallops were the highlight of the meal, cooked near perfectly. Her vegetables left much to be desired. The broccoli a bit mushy while the green beans were too crunchy. I like green beans with a little crunch, but these felt almost raw in my opinion. I really wanted to like the risotto. The texture was on point. Unfortunately the flavor was extremely salty. Overall our impression was positive. My daughter truly enjoyed the service and was happy with her experience for her first trip to NYC.

It’s worth going to Sardi’s once. It’s an institution. But frankly, the food and service were both fairly unimpressive. We went at show time, figuring that with all of the pre-show crowd already out, we’d have the place to ourselves. And we more or less did. And yet, we still had a barely-attentive server. The food was not bad, but it was not worth the price we paid, and it was nowhere near as good as what you could get in many restaurants nearby.

We eat at Sardi's quite often and always enjoy the experience. The bar upstairs is great, bartenders are excellent. We never feel rushed, even at busy times. It is just a good friendly place to dine with excellent food and service. We will continue to frequent this restaurant when we are in NY for the theater.
