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.

Dress Code: Smart Casual. Jacket and Tie are Not Required.
Please note: We do not permit sleeveless shirts for gentlemen nor athletic/running/jogging attire for any patrons in the main restaurant.

    The Acoustics that Friday night was beyond great. Everyone got up and danced outside. The food was not good... steak was very chewy. Potato's bland... they messed my order up. The fries were good and the wine. Other than that it's more of a Ambience place for me.

    Lovely surroundings, excellent service, good food, but the music needs to come down a notch so diners can converse without raising their voices. ‘Hidden’ speakers are too close to diners.

    The schnitzel tasted good, but it took over 30 minutes from when we ordered until we got it. We did NOT order any appetizers, so the delay was inexplicable.

    It was my husband’s 40th birthday. They made it very special with a great table with perfect views of the patio. We had an excellent server that was very sweet and attentive. We ordered the Tomahawk for two which came with roasted potatoes and mac and cheese that was all delicious! Presentation was also spot on! The birthday cake was beautiful and came with a small dollop of ice cream. All in all, it was a great night to remember!

    The Tavern on the Green is a delightful setting and provides excellent food. The staff is friendly and attentive. Unfortunately, much glass and tile flooring makes the indoor space very noisy.

    We reserved a table outside and received confirmation. Upon arrival we were seated at a table inside with no explanation that they moved us due to possible incoming rain. We were seated by a family with two loud children. We asked to relocate and moved to a table in an even louder location. We tried one more time at the original location. When we walked into the room we noticed two other couples relocated due to the loud children. We decided leave, we weren't interested in spending our last night listening to screaming toddlers and staff who didn't care. When we let the host know we were leaving, so they could use our table she equally couldn't care less. This review isn't for the food, unfortunately we didn't try it but we ended up at a local little French restaurant that was amazing and a true New York experience.

    Tavern on the GreenResponded today

    I'm sorry you felt that way about your experience. In an effort to still accommodate your party rather than just cancel your reservation due to inclement weather, we moved you to an indoor table. We do also have a weather warning notice listed on Open Table for all outdoor reservations that you can see below: Please note, if your reservation is booked for OUTDOORS, it is weather dependent and and we cannot guarantee indoor accommodations in the event of inclement weather.

    We checked in twice to be seated. Then the third time we went up they told us we had not checked in. They were seating everyone but us. Ended up at a horrible table that was in the middle of the prom line. Service so slow. Took forever to get a drink and WATER. will be a long time before I will return

    Sadly we came to enjoy an anniversary dinner at this beautiful location but they had a prom and for the majority of our nearly 2 hour dinner there was a line of kids right next to us the whole time not allowing for much good conversations the waitress said they had 16 big events this week… if they all funnel in like that be sure to sit closer to the park and not outside near the dining room. It definitely was not as nice as it could have been especially for the pricing

    We went for Father’s Day and they made us wait for our table for 20 min past the time it was booked for then gave our table away so we had to wait another 10 min and HAD to eat outside despite booking an indoor reservation. The food was ok so was the service. Would not go again, the ambiance was not worth it for the cost and the way they treat guests is really sub-standard for a place of that alleged caliber.

    Nothing like the former except for the prices. Very sadly, the magic is gone - no amazing stained glass and chandeliers, service is as meh and food was mediocre at best. The only cool and special thing is that you’re in the heart of Central Park. Glad my kiddos got to experience it but, unless something changes, we’ll spend our money on a ‘special place’ elsewhere.

    Disheveled busboys and obviously overworked wait staff is the first and last impression here. Although the guitar music was pleasant, if your table is close to the stage it can get overwhelmingly loud. The tables outdoors need to be a lot more spaced out. Everything was way WAY too tight and clustered. Also the chairs and tables wobble.

    First time in NYC and wanted to have brunch in the iconic spot in Central Park as our one “fancy” meal. It was spectacular! Hubby for the Tavern burger with gooey melty cheese and fries and I got the steak and eggs. Fantastic! Cooked to perfection, steak cut like butter, eggs scrambled lightly so they weren’t rock hard/over cooked and the burger was perfectly pink. The potato pancakes were, OMG. Reminded me of my Czech background. Salty and garlicky perfection. I salt everything! But not here, perfectly seasoned. We will definitely go back but make a reservation. I did a week in advance since we were traveling from Florida.
