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 took a while to be seated, but the host came over to apologize and check on us. Our server was lovely and surprised me with a piece of birthday cake and a candle on the house! Second time eating here and can’t wait to go back again!

Wasn't bad , but the magical experience and old school hospitality wasn't there . Waited too long for food , had to ask for bread, only given 1 roll , and a portion of our food was forgotten. It wasn't busy at all . Online the dress code said dressy casual, there were people with shorts and sandals on and parents with kids just coming in the use the bathroom off the playground. Kind of a disappointment.

First time to eat here and it was nice. We ate outside and got to listen to a little live music. The food was pretty good; I had the shrimp and grits. The shrimp was a bit dry and the grits were just ok. My husband had French Toast and he said they were great. A very nice place inside and out though.

From the entrance to the bloodymary for Sunday brunch, everything was beautiful! The weather was fabulous and we sat in the glass room overlooking the outside terrace. Our server Joshua S was extremely in-tune to service, and great with the history of the Tavern. Will definitely return on the next trip.

We arrive in time for our reservations but we had to wait 15-20 minutes for a table. In my reservation we requested inside but gave us a table outside. We had to wait again for another table. Our waiter was way to aggressive for us. He asked if we wanted another drink while we still had half in our glass and there were other issues but you get the idea. Each appetizer and main course were good. I mentioned it was a birthday and they provided a slice of cake and a candle which was thoughtful. We were also “compt” on our coffees

We had a delightful brunch at Tavern on the Green. The scrambled eggs and smoked bacon flatbread was delicious and my husband enjoyed the shrimp and grits. Gorgeous day in Central Park so siting on the patio was perfect. It was packed so having a reservation through Open Table was great! Our Server Benjamin was terrific too.

Bloody glorious is how I would describe the two brunches we enjoyed here.

On day 1, we arrived at 9:45 on Saturday and were greeted by a lovely host. We waited in a sitting room area, until our server escorted us to our table next to the large glass windows at the back. Our group ordered Bellinis, appetizers, entrées and a dessert.

Appetizers consisted of figs with assorted greens, honey and goat cheese: perfect way to start a meal. My buddy had the thick cut bacon, which would best be ordered to share and to enjoy at the same time as one of the entrées. Finally, one of us had the biscuit and gravy: not the best I have ever had, the other appetizers were definitely better.

We moved on to entrées and had the eggs Benedict, one with smoked salmon and the other with lobster, and a third person had the brioche French toast. All were smashes, but you can skip the lobster which was out of season. Each of us were delighted with our choices. We even ordered a piece of carrot cake to share, also delicious but definitely over priced.

We had such a good time, we reserved a table again the next day, Sunday at 9:00. Booking was very easy online. Again, the host was lovely, this time a woman who made us feel welcome without being overly bubbly as hostesses can sometimes be. We requested an outdoor table upon arrival and she accommodated us.

We shared 2 appetizers between 3 diners. The potato pancakes (pretentious for latkes) were simply great. Flavourful, fried perfectly and served with sour cream and apple sauce. The portion was just right for an opener but can you ever have enough of a good latke? I ordered the mixed pastry basket which was good but not great.

Our entrées were the shrimp and grits (not bad), bacon & egg flat bread and the avocado salad with poached eggs served on toast (both amazing)

Service was pretty on point, but felt our Saturday waiter started strong and then stopped caring after our entrées arrived. Still a memorable experience.

We visited for Sunday breakfast on our last day in NYC and wanted to book a table for 6, but were unable to, so booked one table for 4 and another for 2. When we arrived, we asked if the tables could be next to each other/put together, which was accommodated without any issues. Our server was Madison, who was friendly and attentive.
The food was excellent.
The half marathon was being run on the day, so there was some noise from that, but it just added to the atmosphere. Overall a great experience and one we would recommend.

Overall dinner was lovely. It took our waiter sometime to come over to the table after we were seated and it was very loud for a Saturday evening, even in the dining room. The food came fast, and our waiter was very accommodating after a slow start, given we had a concert at 8 to attend. The soft shell crab special was amazing...and a big portion. The lamb for one diner was cooked very unevenly, but all other dishes were cooked well and to our liking.

Overpriced tourist trap, extremely disappointed, underwhelmed, did not come close to expectations.

Food was fair, considering the price it was terrible. Best the shut off the sound system, unintelligible noise.

This is the third time we have been to Tavern on the Green in the past three years and each time was equally delightful! This time, on a lovely Spring day, we were able to sit outside, adding to the ambiance. The menu is varied but not extensive; there is something for many tastes. One thing that definitely has added to our pleasurable experiences is the extremely friendly and helpful staff. Everyone we spoke to was smiling, attentive, and accommodating. Our waitress, Sharon, was exceptional.
We look forward to going there again, bringing along some friends!

Had a late lunch on a Friday afternoon. Weather was perfect for sitting outside, which we did. The food and drinks were outstanding. The service was average at best, not what you would expect at Tavern on the Green. The server forgot to bring us our drink order, our food came out from the kitchen before our drinks arrived. We sat next to a planter that had a speaker in it, so the music was a bit loud. Overall we had a very nice time.

Very good environment. Nice food. Friendly staff. The hosters was rude and put us on a bad place, too warm and noise. We asked her to move but She said no. The waitress came to serve US and we asked her to move to another table. She gently moved US to another table, quiet place, beautiful view from The garden.
