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.

I came here with my fiancé to celebrate our engagement. We have been very much looking forward to going to Tavern on the Green for years. We live close by and would frequent their outdoor bar before Covid but had never had the opportunity in enjoy their food. Today we finally got that chance!

I will say their food is okay. It’s not the most exciting food in the world but it was enjoyable. We got the breakfast pizza (yum) and eggs Benedict. They also had great aperol spritz (tis the season!) The food was pretty generic - not much of a difference between here and any other restaurant but it was fine.

I think next time my fiancé and I will just sit at the outdoor bar and have a more casual experience. Although the indoor area was beautiful it was relatively warm and super loud. It wasn’t the most relaxing atmosphere for us to celebrate. The food was also brought extremely quickly. I think we were in and out in a total of 35 minutes. Haha

All in all our experience was fine. Will we go back for an “official” meal? Probably not. But we will 100% be back to enjoy the outdoor bar area and some bar bites.

Who knows maybe we’ll try dinner and my review will change.

Live Music Friday evening was boisterous but fun. Lots of older couples up and dancing to the big band swing music. Ambiance was fantastic and the light early summer breeze was great. A bit cramped for space on the patio but great to see NYC starting to return to some normalcy after a year+ of Covid restrictions.

Beautiful restaurant, amazing environment, wonderful music live, but our last experience the service was very poor. We wait for 1 hr and half for a drink and so on for the rest of the dinner.

Great ambiance, especially with the live music. The food was pretty good too, but not worth the price. But, think about it this way--you are paying for the food & the experience! Overall, 4/5!

We wished Tavern on the Green would put the French Toast and Maple Bacon on their everyday lunch menu. My friends were just visiting until Friday so they missed the delicious French toast..

First meal out since February and it was definitely worth it. Great ambiance as ever. Friendly service from when we walked up to reception to the end. Attentive staff. Food was fantastic!

Come back to NYC and enjoy one of our most enjoyable venues.

Beautiful atmosphere as usual. Food is expensive but good, except for the bread which was surprising. They but a half of some sort of roll on your plate and that’s it. Not up to par given the price of the restaurant.

Best outdoor bar/dining experience on NYC. Legendary in the park location makes it a favorite for wedding parties, engagement dinner and the like, though just dandy for a higher end gathering of friends and/or family. Just a great vibe on a nice afternoon/evening, though be warned quite touristy as recommended by all the hotel Concierges. Professional staff from hostess to bartender to wait staff (though our waiter a tad busy thus our dinner took a while but we did not mind because of the ambiance and great evening weather. Food solid throughout the menu; we always find time for a meal ‘in the park’

Lovely iconic restaurant in Central Park while sitting outdoors under twinkling lights or under a glass terrace. I recommend dining in the outdoor patio if the weather is nice. Our server was wonderful, food was good (although my husband did not care for his lobster risotto). A good place to celebrate a special occasion.

We were seated at the only table in the sun.... very hot to sit there. Only two choices for the herbal teas. Service was lacking and the initial interaction with the attendants at the entrance was snooty and snarky. The gift shop attendant was glued to her iPhone - no customer service training... never wasting my time to come back there again.
