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.

So even though I request a table on a window with a view I was sat outside. No problem, it is just that we were not asked if the alternate seating arrangement was acceptable. Also it was a special occasion, but no one inquired to the occasion to bring attention to it. Oh well, such is life.

We celebrated my husband's birthday here on Monday. Everything was perfect from our welcome, to serving service, to delicious food, to our departure. The staff was impeccable, seating comfortable, food delicious, view special!

It is not only the food that makes this a "standout" but the ambiance created by a recent spectacular historic restoration (look up and around inside and out.) The Sheepfold was built to house sheep and their keeper from the 1870s to mid 1930s. After the sheep were removed, the building was renovated into The Tavern on the Green Restaurant.

More recently the outside and inside, were again, meticulously renovated. It is a beautiful "trip" back in time. In addition to dining indoors, there is a lovely outdoor space for cocktails and appetizers. The overall inside decor is a delight and when combined with views outdoors: a wonderful dining experience, hard to match anywhere in NYC.

We took our daughter to lunch after her graduation. Service was outstanding, food was fantastic. They made my daughter feel extra special and surprised her with a slice of their confetti cake and ice cream.
The only negative would be that there weren’t any designated places to park for the restaurant, only parking on the street. We were fortunate however to park across from the entrance, probably because of the time of day that we were there. (2:30 during the week).

Livig in NYC for almost 11 years without trying Tavern on the Green was just not my intent. Like everyone around the world, the pandemic made me more an intentional person. I had a feeling it was going to be a special dining journey when we arrived at the host stand. A kind-voiced woman had asked if she could join her friends inside the restaurant whom were all already seated. I was floored to see that it was none other than....NOPE, not gonna tell. Let’s just say she’s tennis royalty. I blurted out a short but ecstatic ‘Hello (insert name)’ and she began to reply back! I was tickled pink!
Anywho, temp checks later we were whisked to our table for an indoor request. Let me tell you when I say the table was 5-star table!! Location, sunlight quality/quantity, privacy and the vantage point of a panoramic view of the patio... let’s make that 10-stars!!
Shortly after being seated this bundle of joy named Sharon F was to be our server and we were delighted! From the moment we gathered ourselves till the the last sip, Sharon F was so attentive, bubbly, easy-going and superlative!!
She guided us to some perfect dish recommendations that turned out to be what the doctor ordered! It’s like she knew what we wanted!!!
I started with the Fig dish and my boyfriend had the potato pancakes.... blew our minds! So tasty without being so overpowering. The potato pancakes were eerily reminiscent of the way my own mother made them when I was a child so that really got me in the feels!! Needless to say, get them STAT!!
For the entrees I had the brioche French toast and my boyfriend the Tavern burger.... excuse me?!?!? The flavors, the presentation and the perfect balance of each bite had us dancing in our bellies!!! Again, order these STAT!
Thank you to the entire staff for such a lovely and memorable dining experience!! If you haven’t gone to Tavern on the Green since their re-opening... you’d be cuckoo not to!! Next time we go it will be for dinner!!! We can’t wait!!

Very disorganized. I understand that it can be hard to accommodate everyone. But they left us on a sofa inside promising a table when none were available. They could have just told us that it was too busy, it would have been totally acceptable.

Restaurant is very nice and overall we had a nice lunch the only issue was at time we arrived to restaurant. We had reservations but we still had to wait in line and it took a while to get seated (well past our reservation time). They should do a much better job organizing tables matching with reservation schedule... this is a pretty basic ask.

My family went on the first night of reopening. Lovely atmosphere with live performance and the service was very attentive. My young kids loved the bamboo straws for their water. The fig starter and the shrimp was very nice. The steak was delicious and the portion was very generous. The lamb chop was a bit stringy.

Despite the reservation it took a while to be seated. Food was really good and server Zhanna was awesome. Ambiance wasn’t so special - expected a lot more but it was still nice. Haven’t been there in about 20 years and was expecting more from an iconic landmark place. Food made up for it despite the price.

Sadly this was our last night out to dinner in NYC in March. I am sad to see how many places are still closed and.at least can hold on to the memories of our night there for my husbands 50th.

We had a lovely afternoon dining in the glassed-in area, with a view of Central Park activities nearby. The restaurant was not crowded, the servers attentive, my hamburger was huge, messy, and delicious. A thoroughly great experience! And we split a piece of key lime pie to celebrate Pi Day.

We visited Tavern on the Green for brunch on Saturday morning on the weekend where all Broadway shows were shut down due to the Coronavirus. My daughter and I had flown in from Atlanta to see Hamilton for her birthday which unfortunately didn't happen because of the shut down. We were leaving on Saturday afternoon but decided to try TOTG to see if they were still open. They were, and while they were relatively empty, the service was no less impeccable and the staff no less friendly. In fact, they went above and beyond to give us a wonderful experience, even with everything going on in the world. They even brought out a birthday cake for my ten-year-old! Bravo to everyone for helping turn a bad situation into a memorable experience.

The food was outstanding, presentation was very pleasing, and the servers were attentive. The serving sizes are adequate--portions are neither too big nor small. The prices are high, but it's worth it for a special meal.
