Sardi’s is just as it always is. Food good. Service fair as they are always rushed with the theatre crowd. But it’s convenient to Theater District and still good for celebrity spotting.

Amazing historical location and we had the absolute best service. Our waiter was phenomenal and went out of his way to help not only us, but a fun group of older ladies next to us. Food was also great. Can't beat such an iconic New York establishment.

My sister and I enjoyed Sardi’s so much! We both ordered the chicken breast with mashed potatoes, a delicious meal. The servers were friendly and efficient. We had been to NYC only once before, so we were quite happy to have made this excellent choice for dinner.

Nice pre-theater dinner. Had a specialty , Spinach cannelloni as an appetizer, I like that several of their specialties you can order appetizer or main portion,
Then had a daily special ,scallops with veggie risotto for the main.
Both excellent. Bread selection is good also and service good old fashioned service!

The food and service was good. My only complaint is when we were paying we were told they do not accept a gift cards. They waiter was very rough when he gave us back our Amex gift cards and said sorry we don’t accept gift cards. So I don’t think I wound return to the restaurant.

I have been enjoying Sardi's since the 1970s. Sadly, it is no longer a fun elegant special place. We were the only 2 men with jackets on. Shorts and t-shirts were the norm. Thought we had walked into McDonalds. The menu was mediocre at best, the food served so quickly we thought we were at McDonalds. I guess they wanted to rush us out, although we were not in a hurry. Out in one hour. So many little kids too.
Sadly, Sardi's is surviving on its name only. Would we go back, NO!
But will go back to the bar. We miss Jose but its still a nice room for a drink or two.

There is no better place for a post-theater supper than Sardi's. The ambiance is classic New York and the people watching can't be beat. The food is just ok and expensive but go for the experience. You will find no better service in NYC. The wait staff is attentive, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Yes, famous people do still go there, so you might get lucky and spot someone you recognize, We did.

Nice traditional restaurant, food enjoyable and service first class. Had cocktails in the upstairs bar, they were really good and the bar had a busy atmosphere, the restaurant was quiet but started getting a bit busier as the evening went on.
Would return but probably pre or post theatre.
The famous caricature drawings were a talking point and our waiter told us some great stories of the stars.

We went on a Sunday after a matinee play. Wonderful service, delicious food, history, and atmosphere. The food was excellent, including desserts. They were able to expertly handle one in our party’s life threatening food (peanut) allergy. All around an excellent Theater District experience. Unlike many legacy locations we have visited, Sardi’s food was excellent.

Sure you may need advance reservations and may pay a small premium for the fact it is Sardi’s, but for us it was all well worth it. Party of four, two with alcoholic beverages, two desserts (one was a dessert for two)- $200.

I know some people avoid Sardi's because of its "touristy" reputation, but this New York institution should not be missed. We are part time New Yorkers and go there regularly. The service and food are good. Prices are reasonable for the Theater District. Go for the history and caricatures. This is New York equivalent of Grauman's Chinese Theater or the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Good grief! This place needs a makeover. The vinyl banquets were ripped, the ceiling tiles are stained. I'm good with old school but this place lacks any charm - I thought it was supposed to be an institution?

Food was fine but overpriced for what it was. Had the endive salad, a very very sad tricolor salad with tasteless tomatoes and mozzarella. The steak tartare was good but came with some stale pumpernickel. Had to ask for different bread.

Wouldn't recommend. You can do old-school in a much nicer way (Raoul's).

Not resting on their inarguably iconic status, Sardi’s continues to provide delicious food with exemplary service. We sat under the autographed charicatures of Bob Fosse and Jerome Robbins among numerous others, absorbing both the singular history and old-school dining experience. Treat yourself before an evening performance at least once.

The restaurant is rather dated, but that seems to be part of the charm (era). The location is spot-on when attending a Broadway show. The food that we had was phenomenal! I had the chicken curry, which was the best that I have ever had. My husband had the scallops and he raved about them. I will definitely eat here again.

Its SARDI's! Have known of this restaurant since the 1950s. Often mentioned on Ed Sullivan Show, Gleason Show, and known as THE place in central Manhattan to dine. Wife and I celebrating 40th Anniversary with "Carousel" at the Imperial, Lunch at Sardi's and several days around New York City. Finally get to visit a legend in fine dining and was not disappointed. Arrived early with a reservation and seated quickly. Staff was attentive to everything and friendly. Server was knowledgeable about all of menu. French wine and a cocktail came shortly after order. My chops/sliced potatoes/asparagus were perfect, with a
stewed pepper garnish that set off the flavor beautifully. My wife's steak was cooked to a
perfect level of almost well. She shared her delicious mash with me and we talked about the full grain bread's freshness and taste. Dessert was surprise for our celebration and photos taken like a pro by our server. Another staff member alerted us to an acting legend in the back corner of the dining area: Bruce Willis, his wife and two young daughters! What a treat to see one of our favorites from "Moonlighting" and "Die Hard with a Vengeance." We got to see him walk past us to the door. We never bothered him or tried to get the cheap selfie. We were later told we were now like true New Yorkers: respectful of celebrity space as we see them all the time! Of course we saw hundreds of other stars on the walls of caricatures past/present. We got some of there pictures and left with a rush of "Boy, did we choose the right place for memorable dining experience."

Sardi's is our go to restaurant when we are in the theatre district. I have reviewed it several times and nothing has changed. The service is always excellent and we have never been disappointed in the food. The bars, both upstairs and down, are great places to relax and have drinks. Bartenders on both floors are great and even after only a few visits, the will remember your favorite drink
We have always found it a friendly and comfortable place for dinner.
