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.

Good food, but a bit overpriced for what we got. That said, for an experience eating in Central Park, well worth it

Steak was not good and we were given a replacement which costs less, however, we were charged full price for the steak which could not be eaten.

Food was just ok for the very high price. Service was alright as well but could have been more attentive. They did however make some roasted vegetables special for my 8 month old so that was really nice. Overall I love this place but it did not hit the mark today.

First time ever going after living in NYC for a decade. Unbelievably charming; I would definitely go back. The drinks and oysters are an easy bet to ensure you get a solid meal.

My husband and I are visiting NYC and decided to have a special lunch at the iconic Tavern on the Green celebrating our anniversary. Once inside, we were surprised at how large and beautiful it was! We ate in the lovely sunroom section. The staff was so attentive and friendly. The food was delicious. We were surprised with a special anniversary dessert. Hope we can come again someday.

This legendary restaurant can’t be beat for a special occasion. Glass walls bring the Park in and the open kitchen provides extra entertainment. Oysters were small but tasty and all our entrees were delicious.

We had a wonderful, lazy lunch on a hot summer afternoon. We're vegan, and the chef and our server went out of their way to be helpful. We ate delicious fig salads, woodland mushrooms, avocado toast, and grilled vegetables. You could not ask for a more perfect place to dine in New York City.
P.S. Be sure to visit the tiny but amazing gift shop.

Tavern on the Green is one of the top dining experiences in America. When you come to New York, the only place you can “get away from it all” is Central Park, and the Tavern is a relaxing gem inside the park…

We were able to adjust our reservation and dine right away outside. The band was playing great music and the speakers really helped. Our servers were very attentive and fun to talk to. The food was superb and we had a good time.

Great restaurant, I definitely agree with how highly rated it was on Open Table. Had my birthday here and the wait staff was all kind and attentive and the food was delicious. A little load but definitely not in a bad way.

First time to the Tavern. The inside dinning area is light and airy but noisy with tables close to together. The food was decent, but pricey. Service was quick and efficient.

Second time to eat here - last time we were outside in the beautiful courtyard. But I also loved the interior- great atmosphere and decor. I love the live music and the excellent service and delicious food. It’s a bit on the pricy side but the ambiance is really great.
