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.

It was a Monday night. I had requested a seat near my he windows, there were plenty available but sat us in back by kitchen. We had to ask to move, slightly disappointed as it was previously requested and available.

Food was good, but not excellent. Waitress lacked enthusiasm. Bussers were very attentive and everything came out in a timely manner. Pastry basket was a tasty treat. My biggest complaint was that my iced coffee was practically water, but overall it was an enjoyable experience.

Return to tavern on the green. Was an occasional diner of the original. Place looks nice enough but lacking in any real ambience that made the original so special. Actually it look like they used the formula that many of the television designers are using the recreate spaces. We were not impressed with the open kitchen as we would have preferred admiring the greens of Central Park instead of viewing the kitchen staff. Food was very good. We had the bacon and egg flat bread, the eggs Benedict, and the brioche French toast was simply divine with Maple syrup and homemade whipped cream. Our server was pleasant enough but failed to ever asked us if we wanted coffee. Don't hesitate to stop by if you find yourself in Central Park for brunch but I don't think it's necessary to complete the Central Park experience.

Waiter was Brooklyn born and so funny and attentive which was a surprise. Food was just delicious and coffee was the best. Perfect Brunch experience. Lovely decor and food orders were beautiful and smelled Devine. The employee Entrance employees were not helpful. I drove in looking for parking and when asked was told “I don’t have a clue where there is parking” turning the car around there was a lot in “plain clear view” across the street. not cool!

Food mediocre. Outside seating terrible with wobbly table with hot environment due to clear plastic top which made you feel like you were in a greenhouse baking. Brunch menu boring and tasteless. Rude manager who asked us not to eat a piece of baklava out of my purse because it wasn’t purchased there yet no one offered dessert menu. Check for two for brunch $140 for a hamburger and steak and eggs which consisted of three small pieces of sliced steak and French fried fingerling potatoes. A far cry from the old tavern on the green.

Food was interesting and fantastic. Enjoyed every bite. Waiter was knowledgeable and made excellent recommendations. I was disappointed that the restaurant seemed more casual than I had anticipated. from patrons in shorts and sneakers to staff in varying styles and shades of black. Table setting was also very casual. But the food was excellent and it was a beautiful night in Central Park.

I’ve been here several times. This time the food was just ok and certainly not special.
Disappointed to spend that much money on what should be an exceptional experience. The level of service was great. However our table captain personality made us uncomfortable.

This has so much potential given the beautiful setting surrounding the restaurant: Central Park and an iconic New York building. Unfortunately, the food and service fell very short. First off, our waitress did not know the menu, which was disappointing for a more expensive restaurant. It’s important to know how the food is cooked without having to read the menu over your shoulder, and what that type of cooking means. Additionally, their should be some interest in the party compared to cold distance. Vegetables were bland. Short rib tasted quite watery. Strawberry shortcake was flavorless. I was very excited to experience this restaurant given the setting and previous reviews, and was thoroughly disappointed. Finally, the live jazz music was a great touch in the bar. It would have added to the ambiance if that music was played throughout the restaurant.
