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.

We arrived early and enjoyed wonderful cocktails. At our table, we took advantage of the Restaurant Week menu and the optional wine pairing. Everything was absolutely outstanding. The selections reflected actual menu items and the portions were generous. Highly recommended - in fact, I already have recommended it to friends based on this experience!

We went during restaurant week to celebrate a birthday. We ordered from the restaurant week menu and the regular menu. Everyone enjoyed their selection. The service was great. Kudos to our waiter Jeff.

Tavern on the Green is a must to experience when in NYC. I love the renovations, but I did miss seeing the older rooms that were opened before. The bar area is a quaint area to hang out with friends. I think everyone should experience Tavern on the trip.

Overall this was a great restaurant. We came for weekend brunch in the late afternoon. We were seated in the Central Park room which has been very beautifully updated. It was not busy when we came, noise level was minimal and service was fairly quick. The food was very good, we had the pastry basket for an appetizer which was a little small to share for 3 people. We also had eggs Benedict and the flatbread, both were very tasty. Portion sizes were large. Drinks were good as well. Probably would have been a five star review, but it is on the expensive side for what you get. You are definitely paying for the ambiance. All things considered though, this would not prevent us from returning.

Perfect way to celebrate our granddaughter’s 10th birthday. We rented bicycles and circumnavigated Central Park ending at the Tavern. We had a glorious time that ended with a lovely birthday cake.

We were in New York for our daughter's 21st birthday and were thrilled to find out that Tavern on the Green had reopened so went there for Sunday brunch. The restaurant has been beautifully redone and our food and service were very good, but we were disappointed in the very casual way others were dressed. It seemed like it had become very "touristy", but overall we had a wonderful experience.

Celebrated my daughters 21st birthday with a lovely brunch. The food and service were superb! Even though it was a cold gloomy day, the view and setting was beautiful. We enjoyed steak and eggs and frittatas. Our only suggestion is to request a seat at a table and not at a banquet. It was somewhat crowded and too close for private conversations.

Magic place. I know and visit the Tavern On the Green Since late 1980s. Today Birthday lunch and they didn’t send a small detail. That’s the difference between a good place and a Superb one. Complementary cookies and coffee can be a big plus. The rest was Good. Service and Food. Of course was great because is my birthday. And I always Enjoy Life No matter what.

Used to be outstanding - now not so. Service was lethargic but staff pleasant enough. Starters Prawns were very average, but my wifes crab was good. Mains my beef was very good but surprisingly small portion, my wifes lamb, asked for just short of well done, turned up very pink enough to be inedible. Desserts we both had Pecan pie with Salted Caramel ice cream. The Pecan pie was tiny and lacking in taste and sweetness but the ice cream was great. We both had Mojitos but their flavour was so harsh as to be undrinkable. There is some serious work to be done to return to the previous quality but we wont be returning.

Great brunch place for large party (we were party of seven). The food was good, service was lovely, and the view of the park was a real treat. We were there for two hours on a weekend. The avocado toast and crème brulee were excellent; the carrot cake was mediocre.

Took my partner and her Father there to celebrate my partners promotion. Arranged for flowers to be sent and Champagne on the table. Filled out a form before hand and communication was simple. We arrived about ten minutes early and the table wasn't ready, fair enough. There was also miscommunication about champagne choice etc, easily solvable. it meant our table was around 10 minutes late but we grabbed a drink at the bar. I would have preferred a more seamless entry to the restaurant but the night beyond this was perfect.

We were disappointed with our experience. We made reservations but waited for about ten minutes before being seated. Then we were seated in the very noisy and very dark bar area instead of the restaurant. Our waiter was not attentive at all. Once he took our order, he did not come to check on us. We had to ask to see the dessert menu, and we had to ask for the bill. The person filling our water glasses was very attentive. We did enjoy the food, and the restaurant, of course, is iconic for New York City (even though this is not the original Tavern on the Green), but we were dissatisfied with our experience.

This was for a friends birthday and I really enjoyed the food but it was honestly pretty average, I had just expected bad from what people told me so the food surprised me. The building is BEAUTIFUL but I’m disappointed we were placed in the room in the far back despite there being tables open that stayed open in the room with all the glass. The only downside I would say if this is that you never know which room you’re going to get, which if you’re a younger woman with a group of friends be prepared for the green back room which is where it seemed they placed all people with parties similar to my own
