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.

Lovely iconic restaurant in Central Park while sitting outdoors under twinkling lights or under a glass terrace. I recommend dining in the outdoor patio if the weather is nice. Our server was wonderful, food was good (although my husband did not care for his lobster risotto). A good place to celebrate a special occasion.

I had the best time celebrating my best friends birthday in the courtyard! The music was incredible, food was tasty and the drinks were amazing. Shout out to our server Omar for making it great & guest relations manager Becca for making sure everyone knew we were celebrating! I highly recommend coming to TOTG for special occasions. You won’t regret it!

This was my second dining experience this month. I had lunch on Memorial Day & was
very pleased with the entire visit. This Saturday they had a brunch menu with good options & pricing as you would expect, but not outrageous given its location & reputation.
An added benefit was a 3 piece band & talented singer. A great benefit & smart on their part. I look forward to dinner there and also plan to take advantage of the outdoor bar.
Its a very welcome addition to the neighborhood.

Tavern on the Green is a great New York staple that is worth checking out. It’s at a great spot in Central Park and whether you choose to dine inside or out on the patio, it will be a beautiful and classic atmosphere. The brunch menu is great - I had Lobster Eggs Benedict and my husband had the Scrambled Egg & Bacon Pizza - both were phenomenal and we would order both again. We finished with the Chocolate Peanut Butter Lava cake which was so so yummy! The service was excellent. Definitely recommend.

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

This restaurant is an iconic part of New York history, but it is also a gem for luncheons or brunch. The food is consistently good, the service is outstanding and you cannot beat the view and ambiance.

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.
