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.

Food was good, but nothing spectacular. Service was not good at all. Sent back coffee and biscuit and gravy because they were literally stone cold. Took silverware after apps, and had to ask for more after main arrived. Had requested still water, and asst filled with tap as he was passing by. Really thought such an iconic restaurant would focus more on the guest experience. The atmosphere and location are the best though.

We went there to celebrate my wife’s birthday. It was a awesome experience. We had a great time. Food and wine was great. Service was really good too. We sat outside. Was a wonderful night.

This is my first visit since the remodel/re-opening and I love the ambiance of this place – very modern and chic. The sauteed garlic shrimp was delicious! However, since my last visit in 2005 and 2008, the remainder of the meal left a lot to be desired. I anticipated the same moist, tender and succulent roasted chicken that drew me in during my last visit but instead, it was tasteless and dry. The buttery, smooth mashed potatoes were just "usual" and almost non-existent under the chicken and vegetables.
The presentation was just okay. I would expect much more from such an upscale establishment and hope that improvements are made asap.

We are serious gourmands and have eaten at Tavern many times in years past. We were surprised and quite shocked at the food preparation...Garlic Shrimp appetizer looked and tasted like boiled shrimp in a watery,
totally tasteless liquid...mushroom tart was fine. A $45 Lobster Risotto was a small portion and only shreds of rubbery claw meat were included. Dish was overwhelmed with chopped mango...otherwise tasteless!
$36 Short Rib Entree was again a small portion of 2 pieces of short rib, barely tender meat.
We did not have drinks, wine or desserts. Check was $153...very disappointed!!!

My husband and I were visiting NYC for the weekend. We had concert tickets that night and our server kept that in mind. She was awesome!! She had a great personality, friendly, attentive, and very knowledgeable of the menu items. We ordered the Tomahawk for 2. It was amazing!!! Will definitely go back next time we are in town.

Tavern on the Green is my favorite place to take my friends and family visiting the area and very convenient for residents of the UES. The service was spectacular and culturally diverse, which I definitely appreciate.

Took my husband on a stroll through Central Park, as he’d never been before. Hadn’t been to this place for 30 years. Beautiful renovation, great service, terrific food. The staff was in a fun mood the day we were there, casual, funky vibe.

We were seated late from our reservation and felt very rushed to leave. The staff are ok when it comes to friendliness. They certainly could use some training. The food was ok but for the price could use some improvement. The medium hamburger was nearly raw meat. Never once were we asked if we were satisfied with our food. I stood in line for the bathroom only to hear a waiter tell the cute, young lady behind me where another bathroom was located but didn’t offer me the same information. This restaurant is in a very nice location but seems to have become lax on quality and service.

I was there for the salsa event and made reservations for 2. The event was outside but no seating available outside. I opted to wait a bit for outside seating . Less than 1/2 HR. we were seated outside enjoying food n drinks. I didn't care for the creaminess of the mushroom pastry . mushrooms have their own distinct flavor and I enjoy them simply sauteed with a lil salt n pepper. Hold the cream please. Overall enjoyed Great Salsa event with much dancing. 💃

A lovely location and a well presented dining room. The restaurant was rather noisy, but it was very busy, so perhaps expected. Fine for large groups, but lacking some of the intimacy for couples dining. Service was excellent, and the food was well prepared and presented.

I had not been to the restaurant since it reopened
. Missed the chandelier “crystal” room but the remodel was pretty. We took our son and his girlfriend. They had not been before and thought it was beautiful. Food was great and the waitress was sweet and engaging.

Great food, just seemed like the waiter was not too happy we dis not spend more money...when we declined to order desert he seemed a bit bothered. Left a poor final impression, otherwise everything else was great.

Tavern on the Green looks great after the renovation. The food was good, not great, but worth the extra cost due to the ambience. Service was good. Wish there had been a more extensive menu for the Sunday Brunch as the waiter refused to modify any of the items on the menu.

Wonderful setting for a night out. Thoroughly enjoyable, regardless of the weather, although, if the weather is right, sitting outside in the garden after the lanterns are lit makes the experience a truly magical event.
