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.

Ambiance and service was fantastic. The food was very good as well, but you’re going to pay a fair price for such a nice place, especially in Central Park.

Still a beautiful setting for a special occasion. All things being equal, it's pretty average. A tad overpriced. But lovely to eat in the park setting.

Lobster Roll was ridiculously small for $39 and was the worst lobster roll ever. Had a very weird taste from some unknown herb. Cobb salad was more greens than anything else.
Cheesecake portion was tiny and also did not taste like any NYC cheesecake. Ambience was very nice and service very good.

Decided on Tavern On The Green for a birthday dinner & it did not disappoint. Everything was great from the moment you were greeted at the front. The waitress we had was indeed a Queen her name was fitting. The food was as great as the service.

Beautiful place. Unfortunately service was very slow. We had to ask for silverware and had to find our own napkins. Never did receive our bread. With that said...food was amazing. Our server was very personable and loved the ambience

Tavern on the Green is an iconic NY restaurant -- wonderfully re-imagined. The decor is gorgeous; with floor to ceiling glass walls that look out onto the garden, a beautifully landscaped garden; and a cozy and elegant bar, and gorgeous kitchen the opens to the restaurant. The menu is limited -- few healthy options, one vegetarian choice - no vegan options, and the food is fine. The service at the restaurant is excellent. Reservations and noise are both issues. We could not hear each other over background MUSAK; and we asked to shift our reservation forward, and was told it was impossible -- but the restaurant had plenty of available seats. A solid choice; better for small parties who can hear each other across a small table.

Tavern on the Green is a vast space with many different seating areas. Be careful to ask for a specific view. We were seated at the back, and it was too late to change tables by the time I arrived from parking the car. We ended up in the blazing sun, away from other tables and away from other people. It was fine, but reminded me of eating on our own at home. Next time, I will book inside as that space is really lovely. If I am seated outside, I want to be seated where I can see other patrons and the band. Also, there is no valet parking so be sure to park before you arrive.

It was my daughters bday. I let the waitress know and she didn’t do anything special for her. The French toast was good…but not worth $23. My daughters chicken fingers were good. The non-alcoholic strawberry/kiwi spritzer was gross. The mimosa was nothing special. Not with $$90 with tax and tip. Won’t go there again.

I always remembered Tavern on the Green as a beautiful restaurant with mediocre food. This time, the food was top-notch, service was very good as well.

Prices are a bit steep but worth it for the quality.

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.

We’ve been visiting Tavern since they re-opened in May 2021 on 6 of 8 Friday evening for jazz night. Beckah, the Floor Manager and her team are awesome, efficient, polite and helpful. Food is good but prices have gone up in recent weeks. The outdoors bar staff are great but understaffed and overworked serving at bar and the bar tables. The atmosphere in the courtyard garden at night is wonderful, relaxing and lovely

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..
