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.

Birthday . We had not been to Tavern on The Green since the renovation, but it was fantastic. I can only imagine how much fun it would be if the weather were nice and we could’ve dined outside again. If you’re going to New York, put this on your list.

Batter on fish was uncooked and service was begrudging at best.

Made the meal because they presented a cake slice for my partners Birthday.

Had that not happened it would have been a bit of a washout.

We were on a girls weekend trip. The food was amazing. I had the crab cake appetizer and the burger. My girlfriends had the flatbread special of the day and the soup of the day. The cocktails were also amazing !! we will definitely return when we head back to NY.

We are visitors from the UK and have been to the Tavern on the Green twice before. I'm afraid a really disappointing experience this time - nothing like the Tavern on the Green we experienced on our last visit. More like a fast food joint than an iconic restaurant. Food was very mediocre too.

The Ambiente was lovely and the good was served as soon as we ordered it.

We first thought our waitress was funny .
But when she did the same jokes and „mistakes“ five minutes later at the table right next to us, we felt a little cheap.

And it was my bfs birthday which was in the reservation. She didn’t even mention it but did congratulate the person on the table next to us to hers. A little consistency would have been nice.

Called requested special room seating confirmed on phone Then received a 24 hour reservation confirmation I reminded her of seating confirmation She informed me Their person miss informed me they could probably not honor a seating request n suggested I arrive early. I left my group n arrived early. They said request noted They seated us Not where I requested without a word to why r about my request. When I asked they simply said they were busy. I resented the treatment. It was a special occasion n we traveled to New York n the Tavern n were disappointed with no effort on site at the Tavern

Would’ve been nice to know it was only Sunday brunch at 3:30pm. Menu was very limited at our reservation time as it was only brunch - this was very disappointing.

Food was good.

Burger was excellent.

During our short visit to NYC we wanted to do something that would create a special memory. A friend suggested Tavern on the Green. We selected Sunday Brunch and it was absolutely wonderful. Tavern on the Green will definitely be at the top of our list on our next visit to the city.

My daughter and I had brunch this past Saturday at this special restaurant. We were in town for a mother-daughter weekend and I wanted her to experience the view and delicious food at Tavern on the Green. I had been there before but this was her first time there. It was a beautiful sunny day. We sat in the ‘glass room’ and ate a lovely brunch. A happy memory for me and my girl eating at the Tavern on the Green.

Seated by the back glass wall - I’d suggest sheers or something - the sun was blinding and HOT - everyone seated in its rays asked to move.

With a reservation, we were not seated until 45 minutes after our scheduled time. This is not acceptable for a NY restaurant. We are not likely to return, even though the food was good and the decor is a lovely setting.

I brought an out of town friend to show them a piece of NY history but instead we had severe hunger pains and had to cancel our dinner out because of the late seating and food service.

I would advise the restaurant management to get a handle on this issue. Otherwise in Manhattan you are likely to go bankrupt from such treatment.

First-time for my wife and I in NYC, and Tavern On The Green (TOTG) has always been a must-go place on our list. This landmark restaurant met our expectations, though fell short on steak preparation. This was the only snag in the whole operation from the smiles and friendly faces at the front door to the sounds of delighted crowds coming forks, eating and enjoying themselves as we walked out.
FINAL GRADE: A

BUT HERE'S WHY:

The server was very amiable. I've worked in various aspects of customer service, and I'm a stickler for taking care of people. With this experience, I am knowledgeable of at least 2 things:
1) never giggle during a physical, and
2) food/drink is very personal.
Our guy was very knowledgeable of menu items..quick to make recommendations for some pairings.

The crabcake appetizer was beautifully fried, and the flavor was soooo fresh.

The lobster pot pie was on-point.

The wife got the skirt steak with creamed potatoes and a side of greens. Still needed another go on the grill, too rare. Came back seared, but still rare. ☹

Manager took care of us: ordered the birthday cake and apple crisp desserts.

OpenTable doesn't allow descriptive reviews, so... there you go.

My parents were visiting from out of town and it was the first time my father had been back to NYC in 35 years. He mentioned the best meal he had his first time in NYC was at Tavern on the Green. My mom and I surprised him with reservations for a “dinner down memory lane”. The experience was incredible for each one of us. He loved being back and seeing how it changed in many ways, but still had the same class and charm it had 35 years ago. My mom and I loved it too. I’ve lived in the city for a year now and always wanted to go but wanted to go for a special occasion. Everything about it was perfect. The drinks, the food, the service, the ambiance... it all lives up to the wild expectations I had. I recommend the tomahawk if it’s on the menu when you go.
