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.

We were a family of 6. Two children one of whom was in a high chair. We went for Saturday Brunch. The server and other staff were exceptionally nice. Food came out promptly which is great when you have kids. They have a nice children’s menu. We weren’t rushed. As an added bonus there was live music. It wad just a perfect day weather wise and being outside was wonderful. I had remembered the place being a little stuffy but that’s no longer the case. Just an overall great experience.

We had an amazing experience. The food was very good and the service stellar. We enjoyed our dinner outside with live music. A great way to celebrate a birthday. We were treated to complimentary creme brûlée as a birthday treat.

Food was tasty but small portions and expensive. The service was very friendly and attentive. The reason most people go is for the ambience snd yet they were seating everyone close to the building and not on the periphery where one could enjoy the park views. I would not go back. Too pricey for what you got.

Arrival was great but then down hill from there. Bar staff seemed to be put out to take care of us while waiting. New server - 2 weeks on the job seemed to be scattered. Asked for bread service 3 times to be served stale bread. Food was mediocre at best for the price we paid. We are from out of town and had expected better food and service. Also menu on website does not match what is offered on site.

We had never been before, so this was extra special for all of us. I would definitely recommend and would go again.

Here is a very classic NYC restaurant TOTALLY riding their history. The server was lovely but the orders were completely mixed up by her or the kitchen, and everyone ended up eating essentially alone as the food slowly crept back out to the kitchen as it got fixed. Felt like the cheese on the burger (which was ordered no cheese) got wiped off with a rag, the raw lamb got microwaved and the veggies and potatoes turned to mush...this is for sure a restaurant to avoid if you appreciate good food and the prices are so not in line with the quality... this place is on its last gasp.

Having traveled from the west coast with my granddaughter for a very special birthday, it was underwhelming. The waiter who brought the cake with lit candle had zero enthusiasm and left after the first line of the song! Not impressed

It was awesome. Dined at Tavern several years ago. Love the ambiance. My waitress Kat was outstanding. Thanks for such a lovely evening. Have only one issue. My table was changed as requested. However, I realized that during the transfer my linen scarf was not moved and I was never able to locate it. This was very sad for me as I got this scarf in Ethiopia

Our inside table for 5 was half in the shade and half in the sun (due to the beautiful open room. Unfortunately, it was very warm in the restaurant. They could increase the air conditioning. We were warm from the moment we walked in. The food was good, if not on the small side. I think we all agreed that we enjoyed the ambiance and food better at the Loeb Boathouse. We did however greatly enjoy a broadway concert outside at Tavern on the Green a few days prior. Beautiful setup outside!

We had such a lovely Sunday Birthday Brunch in honor of Sean Lane! We started off with the bread basket for an appetizer. My son James and Sean had scrambled eggs and steak and loved it. My cousin Christina and I loved the Chicken Paillard salad. We all had delicious desserts! Tavern on the Green brought out a complimentary slice of cake decorated with Happy Birthday for Sean. Our server was so nice. The ambiance was warm and inviting.

We were seated very close to another table & it felt like we were in the middle of their conversation. There were several other open tables, so I’m not sure why were seated so closely.

Our waiter, Max, was AMAZING! The food was very delicious. We sat outdoors as we had our 5-year old daughter with us who is not vaccinated. As a parent, I felt safe as the waiters were wearing masks & were taking all Covid precautions. I highly recommend Tavern on the Green!
