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 was amazing. Service very poor…took 2 1/2 hours for a party of 2. For the price…the food was just “ok”. Some items were very good…watermelon salad & the desserts were amazing! Entrees were acceptable, but we expected better. But…then again, we were there more for the experience than the cuisine- and in that, it did not disappoint!

The food was not good. The service was not good. And the prices were expensive.
The ambience was the only thing that was good

Had an outdoor table. The music band was way noisy that it was hard to talk each other.

Noise level was way too loud to enjoy anything else about it, much less to enjoy an anniversary.

We were on the separate small outside terrace near the Central Park bicycles and it was a delight. If you want a garden with great food where you can easily talk, this is the place!

2nd time this month at T on the G
Truly enjoyed this meal with friends. Everything about it was great.
Missed the combo and vocalist I enjoyed at brunch a few weeks ago. That was marvelous. R-instate it.
I do remember when people dressed for a meal out. No longer. I miss that.
Now young people in jeans and t- shorts looking sloppy at best. Unfortunate.
I guess a dress code would be bad for business.

For my granddaughter's 11th birthday my family came to Tavern o.t G - which was new for us, unusual, historic, delicious, festive, classy, and very suited for celebrations. Perhaps we will return. We had a great time.

I have dined here several times (pre Covid) and this experience was disappointing. We were initially seated in the furthest room and with a view of a wall next to us. I asked the hostess if we could sit in a room with a view. The hostess changed our seating and right next to a very loud party of 30 high school kids celebrating a party. My guest and I could not hear each other to have a conversation. The bar was backed up and my wine I ordered as I was seated did not come until after my dinner arrived. The food was cold and with zero presentation. This was an extremely disappointing experience.

Great ambience, relax atmosphere. Food and drink were delicious. love the decor, the seating was great under the glass roof, feel like you are in the garden but with AC. :) love the seating. Came here to celebrate a friend's birthday, the waiter was very pleasant and delightful. He has arranged our dessert and make it on the house to help celebrating the birthday. We received superb service. Would come here again for sure!!

Such a beautiful setting.....a bright, happy, spot in Central Park. Super accommodating, very pleasant server who listened and completely honored dietary requests. Good food and a very good value for an iconic NYC restaurant. Even the host checked in to make sure all was well. Tavern on the Green aims to please and wholly succeeds!

The food was mediocre at best. Our waiter was very friendly and gave good service but the prices were not commensurate with the quality of the food. Probably won’t go back…
