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.

Nice atmosphere and easy to make lunch reservations last minute. Portions are pricey and small though. Kids menu exists but has no side salad or greens. The green salad they make comes with no dressing and they have only house vinaigrette, no ranch, honey mustard etc.
$31 lobster roll special was tiny and came on a small toasted hotdog bun.
Check menu before you come. Server was nice but easily flustered by the salad dressing question.

Nice to visit the iconic restaurant in Central Park, however my steak was undercooked. The wait staff was responsive to get my steak fixed.

Wow, iconic and amazing. Service was impeccable. We arrived early and enjoyed mimosas while seated on two comfy sofas in the bar area. The vibe is upscale and relaxed at the same time. Food was amazing. Would go every weekend if I lived in NYC!

We loved it! First time for us. The Tavern made for a great place to go pre opera. Food was excellent and the prices inline with the quality of food and service.

Our first visit to the Tavern since it’s renovation quite a few years ago and pleased by the friendly atmosphere. Gone is the haughtiness we encountered in 2001. Even on this dreary, rainy afternoon the dining room was bright with light and greenery. The menu offered several vegetarian dishes. My grilled fresh vegetable dish was tasty but too much food for one person; my husband enjoyed his calamari salad and German lager. Don’t know why wine is so expensive in the city but I did enjoy a glass. We weren’t offered bread although I noticed it served at other tables .. just as well I guess 😊 Yes, I would return and would recommend. A lovely treat for a pre-valentine meal.

I had the special which was lemon chicken and it was good. Not exceptional. My friend had the steak sandwich and I tasted it also. The beef was totally flavorless. We ended up halting my meal. The ambiance as always was wonderful but the food disappointing.

Tavern is an icon in NYC. I live here. Brought a friend from California here this February. Bar area is quiet so we could talk. Only decided that after they sat us at a table in the main room. The windows are beautiful but the acoustics are horrible and we could barely hear ourselves talk. Menu is for tourists. Overpriced.

On that note. In the summer it's nice to sit outside (make reservations and ask for a table OUT of the SUN under an umbrella). When they have music...having a drink and the Caesar salad makes for a nice afternoon.

I thought I was coming to Restaurant week and upon arrival at the table was told it didn't participate
in Restaurant week for brunch, that was not clear on the listing. While disappointed in that, the experience
otherwise was very lovely. The staff were very pleasant and engaging and our experience overall was
very good.

I visited with a group of girlfriends for Sunday brunch. We enjoyed everything!! The bloody Marys were so good-fresh grated horseradish, everyone enjoyed what they ordered-we tried almost the full brunch entree menu. The service was on point, it was just an overall great experience!!

If you live in NYC, it's worth going to check that off the bucket list. If you're from out of town, I think it's worth going elsewhere- the food is just 'eh' and when you're in NYC, there are plentyyyy of places that are awesome food experiences with a similar ambiance to Tavern on the Green. I think this place could really be something if the menu was a bit more extensive and if the quality/flavor of the food upped their game.

Hands down my mothers 60th birthday was a success! The waitress Allison was on point with service and the staff was accommodating and friendly. Living in Kentucky I was able to pull this surprise brunch off for my mom with the help of the staff and they executed the experience for my family. They helped me design a floral arrangement of my choice and pick a bottle of wine to serve at the meal with a personalized card. I would recommend them highly and plan to do buisness with them again in the future!!!
