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.

Love the Tavern 2.0. Everything from the quaint gift shop to the inviting bar room and elegant dining room was perfect. Our server was delightful, a beautiful redhead too. The food was well plated and delicious. We can't wait to go back and enjoy a night in NY in a not so typical NYC way. By the way, we are New Yorkers and Taven on the Green was not a Tourist mecca, we loved it!

Overall our experience was good except for the maitre de who for a 5:45 pm appointment would not sit me at 5:30 pm since my guest had not arrived. I therefore, had to wait standing for 15 minutes for my guest. Meanwhile, the restaurant was EMPTY. Very discourteous to a patron who used to go there often. The bar seats are a little raggedy and need replacing.
It is NO longer my first or second choice as a place to dine.
The waiter service and the food were fine, nothing really great for a high priced dinner. We believe the Tavern is losing it charm and surviving on it’s past reputation. Too bad seeing a nyc institution slowly failing.

Always a very nice experience. We were there for lunch and our waiter was perfect. He frequented our table and made sure we had what we needed. The food is wonderful and the portions are quite large. The Birthday Cake on the menu is one of the best I have ever had!
I try to go here every time I am in New York!
Thank you!

We had a wonderful meal. Smoked trout appetizer was so good. The main courses, beef short rib and duck, more than enough as a main course. Great wait staff, and drinks.

Just ok. Waited a very very long time for a reserved table. When I asked the hostess what the problem was she said she thought I was waiting for the rest of my party I explained that I had told her 20 mins, 10 mins, and 5 mins before— for a total of 3 times. We were seated at a horrible table in the full sun against a glass partitioned wall where the diners at the same table were partially separated by those partitions. It was hell to get in and out of those seats


The food was decent. The wild mushroom toast was fabulous, but overall I don’t know why this restaurant is considered a big deal. It’s okay but pricy

My boyfriend and I had dinner here for his birthday. The service was outstanding, the staff were great and extremely attentive. I loved the service and ambiance. The appetizers were really good, we had the garlic shrimp and the lump crab cake, both very tasty. Then for main courses I had the rack of lamb, I asked for it to be well but not too over cooked, it came out still pink and I had to send it back to be cooked some more. It came back better but still pink. I think if they cooked it better I would’ve been more satisfied. My boyfriend had the pork chop and he said it was good just could’ve used some more flavor(gave 4 starts on food simply because of the main, the apps and dessert make up for the rest). I also had the guava margarita which was really good. Then we had the birthday cake slice which our server gave to us complimentary since it was his birthday, we really appreciated that. This place is absolutely worth the visit!

It was a beautiful day, contributing to a very nice brunch. We felt the brunch menu was limited, and the regular dinner menu looked preferable. The food presentation was nice, two of three of us felt taste was fine, one loved his. The appetizers were very good. Service was ok, the server was polite, but not particularly attentive or warm, almost a little snobbish.
We'll recommend Tavern on the Green to others because it's a lovely environment, and service will likely be better next time.

My husband and I were visiting from Texas and we both had the best experience at Tavern on the Green. From the atmosphere to the staff, the entire visit was exceptional and we will definitely tell others about this establishment. We ordered off the brunch menu on Sunday and our choices were delicious. We reserved a time and were seated fairly quickly even though they were quite busy. We never felt rushed and enjoyed our time there. The decor is absolutely beautiful!

How great to Dine alfresco in the middle of October. We did some research on the dress code and adhered to it. Too many of our dining companions did not. Food and service were exemplary

We visited for Sunday brunch. The food and coffee were excellent and the service friendly and prompt. Our only complaint was that they were quite keen to get our table back when we had finished, whereas we would have liked to have taken a bit more time.

This timeless and classic restaurant was a massive disappointment. We had an early-Sunday morning breakfast, and its reputation and location were the attraction for us. The food was simply either bad or nondescript. The potato pancakes were so significantly overcooked (extremely crunchy and dry) that they laughably couldn't even be cut with a fork. The French toast was adequate but literally not as good as what you'd find at Denny's (sorry, no offense to Denny's...). The Tavern seems like it is trading on its past reputation and a steady draw of tourists visiting town and puts little-to-no effort into actual good food and quality. Go to the Tavern if you want to say "you've been there" and if you want an iconic Central Park location with outdated and aging ambiance - do not go to the Tavern for good food, friendly staff, or a fulfilling dining experience.
