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.

                                        Great place to celebrate after a Central Park Graduation. We experienced accomodating and friendly service from the hostess who seated up 45 minutes early and our waiter, Nikoli, who did not rush our group of 8. The food is delicious. Dessert is a must!

                                        There is nothing in New York quite like Tavern on the Green. It's a magical place, from the sheepshead marble fireplace to the latticed ceilings. The courteuous and infinitely patient staff add to the old-world charm and civility. Dining at Tavern on the Green reminds one of a more civil, sophisticated time. The food is simple yet delicious, prepared minimally for maximum flavor. the somewhat seasonal menu often includes salmon, either in burger or plank form, both mmm-inducing. The burger is one of the best in New York. Our family looks forward to an excuse to celebrate at Tavern on the Green!

                                        an hour before our entree arrived. no sauce in a boeuf bourguignon, just one hunk of meat and vegetables mixed with mashed potatoes. too noisy to enjoy conversation indoors.

                                        Had an amazing experience. We started our day with a Carriage ride through Central Park and our driver graciously agreed to adjust our trip to deliver us to the restaurant entry. Had a delicious grilled shrimp salad with an apricot dressing. For my Mother’s 80th Birthday, the Chef prepared a beautiful NY Cheesecake with a kiwi sauce. We sat in the glassed main dining room which was so nice to enjoy the gorgeous day.

                                        We would describe our visit as “weird.” We ordered a cocktail and the incorrect one was made & delivered. Once we asked it was made correctly. Steak was overcooked. We received bread and butter but our silverware had been removed, so we dipped our bread awkwardly in the butter. We had expected something extra special because of the reputation and the prices, but everything was just ok.

                                        We arrived and checked in at the time of our reservation, but we were not seated for another 40 minutes. I checked with the hostess after 25 minutes, and she indicated she had not closed the loop when we checked in, so it was another few minutes before we were seated. Once at our table, we waited a few more minutes before someone approached us with menus and an offer of water. As we were seated in a busy traffic lane, I watched the staff and noticed everyone seemed stressed and no one was smiling. The customers looked happy to be there, but not the staff. There was a large private party going on in a separate area (wedding or anniversary reception or engagement party?), so perhaps there were extra demands. However, as the evening drew on into dusk, the mood lightened and the staff began to smile. Perhaps it seems like a strange thing to focus on, but restaurant staff set the tone for the dining experience. It's much less enjoyable when the customer seems like a bother. We seemed to bother our waiter when we asked a couple of questions about the menu. He did soften up toward the end of the meal, and he made an excellent suggestion for dessert, one which I enjoyed immensely. Bread and butter were brought around to the tables and we received ours mid-meal, which seemed behind the timeline. But it was delicious and worth the wait. My meal was the salmon, and my husband had the grilled vegetables. Both were superb. The grapefruit creme brulee was delightful, and thoughtfully suggested as the only option given my food allergies. The ambience was great with the outdoor seating. The noise level indoors was considerably higher. Overall, I am glad I went to Tavern on the Green.

                                        The portions were incredibly small and sooo terribly expensive. We ordered a special salad for over $30 and it was an appetizer portion. There was no bread available. The food was just so so. The setting was lovely but will not go back.

We were served on time and efficiently even though the restaurant was very busy. A memorable experience which topped off a fabulous New York Youth Symphony concert at Carnegie Hall. We plan on going when my grandson who is at Julliard has a concert this fall,

                                        Bad management. I had a guest from out of town, a vegetarian and they were out of ravioli at 7 pm . I approached a manager about this matter and he was rude and not helpful. An extremely unpleasant experience and certainly not the way the Restaurant was 15 years ago. I will certainly not be coming back. The patio furniture was cheap and no dress code for a restaurant that has such an classy reputation. The elegance is definitely gone!!!! Such a disappointment!!

                                        Wrote on reservations occasion was birthday celebration. Hostess when sitting us asked are we celebrating anything special, said was birthday celebration. Our waiter never asked and we never said anything. One advice I'd say is that they should communicate better with each other. Hostess should know when customer check in by looking at the computer what the occasion is if customer decides to write it during rsvp. And if hostess does ask, what are we celebrating, they should pass on the message to the waiter..

                                        My wife and I went to Tavern on The Green for our anniversary and had a fantastic experience. We had dinner outside, which was beautiful. We both had the Crab & Avocado appetizer which was delicious. I had the Diver Scallops A La Plancha, which was excellent and flavorful, and my wife had the Seared Sirloin Steak which was cooked to perfection. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. I would definitely recommend!

                                        Never disappoints. Classic NYC. Terrific kitchen. Doesn’t give off the touristy vibe. Just a gem. Been going there since I was 16! Now 70! These owners have it just right.

                                        Wanted to show my sister TG as it was her first time in New York. We had a great brunch. Tony was a superb server and food and atmosphere were great. Eggs Benedict and spicy Bloody Mary were wonderful.
