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.

Food, Service and Ambiance all excellent. We were there to celebrate a birthday. It was a very special occasion and it all turned out very well. The salmon was the best.

Everything was great except I was disappointed in the lack of dress code enforcement. I insisted that my grandchildren 12 and 15 wore suit coat and nice dress others were in jogging clothes Only other issues was to be seated in full sunshine when plenty seats with view available with better shade

Long aware of TOTG, I had never been there. Went to NYC for a trip with my daughter, hit open table for brunch and it was close and available. Great treat! Got the poached eggs on avocado and it was great. And the maple bacon is must-have.

Dinner before the ballet. Timing was perfect, didn’t feel rushed and steak was cooked just how I like it. Portions solid size.

We had a great table for a special birthday brunch with a beautiful view. The crab cake was the best we've ever eaten- delicious! Service was attentive, personable and professional! We'll be back!

I have been looking forward to bringing my family and friends to this restaurant. I was sadly disappointed.

First the menu choices for vegetarians is very slim and if you are a vegetarian that doesn't eat eggs, there was nothing, also no vegan options. When we asked our waitress what she would recommend, she first said French Toast...which has egg in it, then she said she would normally recommend the biscuits with gravy but they didn't have any sausage gravy. We were very surprised as we expected the caliber of service to be spot on for this price point. We then had her ask the chef to make a vegan dish. Then a waitress who was passing behind us saw that there was something on the floor and put it on our table...it was a face mask/hat that was NOT ours and we were a little grossed out by this, as not only was it on the floor, not ours, but it had hair and dust from the floor on it. Thankfully we had already finished our food. Needless to say my next visit to New York will not entail a visit to this restaurant.

Our server, Allyson, was wonderful. She recommended a cocktail to me (where there’s smoke, there’s water) that was fabulous. The lobster roll special was delicious. All around, it was a wonderful experience. We look forward to our next visit and another great meal.

This was my second time at the Tavern. The good was great and ambiance perfect, the first time around. This time however only the food was great. The service was absolutely terrible! Our waitress upon refusing dessert service even though we racked up a 200 hundred dollar brunch bill... told us to go to Dairy Queen on the way home... wow very insulting and snobby!!’

Everything was perfect. My favorite dining experience in NYC. We have eaten there for Weekend Brunch on a previous trip and it was wonderful. This was our first weekday lunch and my first time to try one of their cocktails - “Queens”. It was perfect as was my entree - organic Scottish salmon.

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.

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!
