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.

Dress Code: Smart Casual. Jacket and Tie are Not Required.
Please note: We do not permit sleeveless shirts for gentlemen nor athletic/running/jogging attire for any patrons in the main restaurant.

    A visit to NYC is incomplete unless you lunch in the park at the Tavern! Food: excellent, service: gracious, scenery: incomparable! Our meal was delicious, from the diver scallops my wife enjoyed, the burger and steak sandwiches the kids ordered, to the chicken schnitzel I devoured. A truly lovely dining experience!

    My wife and I had dinner at Tavern on the Green last night (July 4) and the dinner was spectacular. We had a marvelous waiter, who waited on us with professional aplomb and good humor. The crab and avocado appetizer was tasty and light, just what we wanted. The entre was the ravioli pasta dish, which was delicious and also light, just what we wanted. And the desert -- brownie with ice cream -- was perfect! The marvelous waiter was a nice compliment to the meal. Keep up the good work.

    The Food was very Subpar. The wait staff was fine. The venue was very interesting and neat. We won’t be back. The price was much too high for the quality of food. I had the steak and my wife had the lamb. I can’t remember ever having a steak that flavorless. I’d be better off just throwing one on the grill and saving the $70.

    Enjoyed as always our visit, food was great, service good. Only issue was the hostess directed us inside and line up to check in for our reservation. We arrived on time however were several parties ahead of us and by the time we got to the front of the line our table was cancelled as no shows. The hostess staff did not check the line the 15 min we were lined up. Thankfully, I was close enough to overhear the conversation and we got our table. My suggestion is to show up early and don’t assume they check for customers in line especially holiday days.

    Weather was perfect for outdoor dining; the table umbrellas were a must as to prevent the sun from beating down on us. Our waiter didn’t rush us and took care of us when ordering when we took our allergies into consideration. Very memorable afternoon.

    We were here two weeks ago and loved the food so much we went back again yesterday. Great food-- in particular the burger is one of the best burgers in Manhattan and that is saying a lot from New Yorkers of 15+ years. The first time we went here recently the service was perfect, yesterday our service was poor though. The waiter seemed to be spread too thin and was so rushed he forgot to take our drink order and went straight to our food order and when we mentioned we wanted to order the drinks he then took drinks orders from only 1/3 of the part before rushing off. When my main arrived, it was 50% incorrect. I told the server who delivered it (not our waiter) and he said he would take care of it. The waiter didn't come to check on our meal until it was finished and then I had to explain I never received the salad portion of my meal. He apologized and then everyone had to wait for me to eat my salad while they were done with their meal. I should mention our main dishes took nearly 90 minutes to get them. The waiter apologized for the delay, but we would have appreciated a gesture such as a complimentary drink for the wait. Then when others in the party ordered dessert, I ordered an espresso. Desserts were brought out, but he forgot the espresso. We were a party of 6 this time (last time was a party of 10) so we are certainly spending a lot when we go, but I just wish the service was consistent and reliable. If they are having an off day, they should comp something as recognition of the service issues.

    Looked forward to celebrating my birthday with family. After seating, we asked for glasses of ice and tap water for the table. We had to repeatedly ask for ice, refill of water and for the bottle os wine (white) to be chilled as it wasn't cold/chilled. Placed our orders and 2 asked for sirloin steak. One was cooked exactly as ordered one came out with half covered in fat. Not marbled..thick fat. A bad piece. Asked for another and 2nd try came out blue when medium was ordered. Chef came out. Not to apologize but to say this is how sirloin is. I was taken aback. I just feel that this restaurant has become more of a mass produced rather than a exemplary experience. Disappointed.

    I've actually really loved this restaurant up until now. This time our experience was disappointing. We were sat in some back side room when the main dining room had space, I had to ask three times for a second drink before it showed up, the server was largely absentee as he stood chatting with colleagues, and my side dishes took several rounds of requests to materialize. It wasn't particularly busy, so the lack of service didn't make much sense. Next time I'm in the city, I plan to go with the Loeb Boathouse instead.

    It was lovely to spend another anniversary at Tavern on the Green. We enjoyed our dinner and entertainment outside on a warm night. I only wish the dress code would be enforced. Seeing patrons in beachwear and exercise clothing takes away from the dining experience in such a beautiful New York Institution as is Tavern on the Green.

    We had a lovely dinner before our Lincoln Center performance. I had been to Tavern on the Green as a child in the late 70s and as an adult in the early 2000s, but this visit was the best so far. From seating us in a shaded area on the patio to the phenomenal drinks, salads and dessert, everything was fantastic. Unbelievably talented jazz band with an outstanding vocalist sang all the standards and made the night really special. Highly recommend!

    My plate of good was put down in front of someone at the wrong table. After discussion was picked up and waiter walked away. In just a few seconds he walked back and put the plate down in front of me. When I told him I saw him put the plate down at wrong table he denied it….several times.
