Magical is a word thrown around a lot when discussing Tavern On The Green and one can’t help but feel magic in the air. Jim and David, architect Richard Lewis and landscape architect Robin Key, preserved the Victorian/ Gothic elegance of the semi-circular building; it is authentic, natural, elegant and sexy. It has been re-built to spectacular precision and the décor is of a grand farmhouse one might find on the property of an Italian Villa or a historic Hudson River Valley mansion.

Dress Code: Smart Casual. Jacket and Tie are Not Required.
Please note: We do not permit sleeveless shirts for gentlemen nor athletic/running/jogging attire for any patrons in the main restaurant.

    While the staff was friendly, the order was wrong twice. The out of town guest was very happy to see the restaurant, we unfortunately were put at a wobble table in a crowded corner. The food tasted delicious despite the location.

    My husband and I grabbed lunch at Tavern on the Green to celebrate our anniversary and our last day in NYC. It was one of our favorite meals! The food and wine were delicious, the cheesecake with all the fruit was incredible, and we were surprised with some truffles and a card from the restaurant. What a wonderful way to celebrate!

    Greeted well. Service was efficient. Simple burger order for only 3 people was brought to table incorrectly after server repeated the order to us several times over. One burger was cooked incorrectly and the other served with wrong type of cheese. Carmelized fries which we all know what should look like were served as a basic red onion charred on grill. Not acceptable for the price and it being the Tavern.

    We had a beautiful first experience at Tavern on the Green. The ambiance is wonderful both inside and out. All of our food was delicious. The best part of our evening was the service, not just from our server but probably a half dozen who helped us. They all seemed genuinely happy and eager to make our time there the best! And it was!

    All the food was very good. One of our party ordered just sides as her meal; truffle fries, garlic spinach, and broccoli, there was definitely enough to share for at least 2 people, probably 3 for the spinach. My chicken schnitzel dish was very good. Had lots of good choices for the kids meals. I had made a reservation through open table with outdoor seating as only option, but they were able to accommodate inside patio on arrival easily. Server was great!

    Our third visit here from the UK. Food lovely but overpriced. Service was adequate. Waiter told my wife that her first choice for her meal could not be modified (wanted to swap type of cheese for her steak sandwich and was told this was not possible. She then asked to delete cheese altogether and told this was not possible) Other than that everything went well, burgers and fries arrived cooked per order, but suppose when you are paying $31 for each of them its what you would hope for !

    The salmon and scallops were good, but not anything exceptional. The steak was over cooked, my son asked for medium and it was a clearly well done steak. The waitress was friendly but certainly didn’t go out of her way to provide excellent service, we were never given plates for the starters that we were sharing, so we used our small bread plates. We were also not asked if we’d been there before and there was no menu explanation. All in all it gets 4 stars for its historical significance and overall an hence. But we could have had a better special dining experience sr a lot of fine dining establishments with more elevated service. Somewhat disappointing food experience, but it was still a place to see.

    We had reservations for brunch but could not get in for 20 min. After we checked in, we were told to wait because our table wasn’t ready. Doesn’t look that staff is trained. Everything was very hectic. Finally after checking again with the hostess, we got seated. Today was 83F in NY but no AC in Tavern on the Green was working. Food wise was very mediocre. Food presentation was zero. What’s happened to this place??? Used to be tasty with a great service. Not anymore. Very sad experience.

    We love Tavern and visit every time we’re in town. Unfortunately we reserved for Brunch last weekend (June) and they seated us in the Atrium section of the restaurant. Unfortunately, they did not mention the Air conditioning had been broken all morning. The restaurant was very warm and everyone was uncomfortable. Although these things happen, the restaurant made no effort to advise us of the situation or when it would be resolved. Ultimately we had a pricey brunch that no one enjoyed considering that we were seated indoors with no air-conditioning on a very warm summer day. The situation was unacceptable for this caliber establishment. No acknowledgement or considerations were made on our bill or throughout our service for this inconvenience. Very disappointed.

    Fantastic brunch at TOTG. Booked a reservation online about 4 weeks ago per my sister's recommendation who had just visited. Wasn't sure if this would be "old and dated" but it was far from it. Restaurant is beautiful - super classy and in Central Park. We were there on PRIDE Sunday s a special PRIDE menu was provided. Wonderful service from Patricia, our lovely, beautiful server from Venezuela. I got the heirloom tomato salad with pea shoots and crispy pancetta - added salmon for protein - cooked perfectly. Teens got burgers which they said almost defeated them. One of my boys could not finish his! Cooked medium rare. This is an experience - you must go. Tried to get into the Boathouse first but TOTG is much more famous and in my opinion, this was one of the FAVORITE experiences of the trip. thank you!

    I’ve lived in NY for 5 years and never been here, which felt like a travesty given that Tavern on the Green is such a New York institution. Booked an outdoor brunch reservation a week or so in advance. You can ignore the dress code details on Open Table - there were plenty of people dining that had just run a race in Central Park and still in their running clothes and even bibs. We waited in line for 12 minutes to get to the hostess stand, but were quickly showed to a table when we arrived. The outdoor dining area is shaded by umbrellas and a large overhead canopy but we were sat at the only table that had no shade, even though there were plenty available. We accepted the table they showed us to, not wanting to be of any trouble, but in hindsight, we should have spoken up. It was 90 degrees and we very quickly got uncomfortable, even the silverware was scorching if accidentally left in the sun. We ordered drinks and entrees, which were all wonderful and large portions. We had planned to order dessert but were so miserable in the sun that we opted not to and got the check as soon as possible. For being such an iconic NYC establishment, we found our bill to be very reasonable. If we were to come back, we’d make dinner reservations for outdoors when the sun isn’t so intense. The conditions truly overtook the experience for us.

    The Acoustics that Friday night was beyond great. Everyone got up and danced outside. The food was not good... steak was very chewy. Potato's bland... they messed my order up. The fries were good and the wine. Other than that it's more of a Ambience place for me.
