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.

It was a lovely experience overall. Especially after having not dined out in for over a year. However, I do think that the stations you have set up for your wait staff to retrieve napkins, cutlery and plates etc., should not be so close to where your diners are sitting, it was a little intrusive.

In general the food was very good, but there was sand (or other grit) in the greens that came with the octopus and chorizo appetizer. I would have sent it back, but the server never stopped by to ask how things were. Aside from that, the dish was very good; and I would definitely go back.

Booked a table for my sister and her boyfriend to celebrate post engagement. Booked a table outside since her dog was a part of the engagement. When I arrived, they made a big ordeal about needing a manager to come outside to talk to me. The manager was rude and said no dogs allowed. I said ok and then went back and told the hostess that my sister just got engaged, I would walk the dogs home and to seat them without me and get them started with bubbly. She told me she’d have to ask a manager first. I said, “to order drinks?!?” And she said, “oh I thought you wanted them free.” The whole experience was terrible. Especially after coming from such a joyous occasion. I was appalled. Especially at all of the assumptions and the hush hush attitude involving the dogs. We just left - felt so incredibly unwelcome. Such a terrible experience with terrible vibes.

What a wonderful evening. Beautiful love music, not too loud so we could enjoy our conversations, and our meals were excellent. The setting is beyond compare. Thank you, TOTG for renovating this gem into a magical place.

Service started out good but as the dinner went on the waiter became less attentive with a number of errors. We were surprised with someone picking up our tab. The waiter was not very pleasant about telling us about this incredibly thoughtful gift. We love Tavern on the Green and will return. Hopefully we will have a more attentive waiter. By the way the supportive wait staff was very good.

I love the location, views and friendly staff at Tavern on he Green. They are just the right level of service -- not in your face, but always nearby. The willingness to allow substitutions is also a plus.

My salmon seemed to be a frozen filet. And the bed of beans and vegetables lacked flavor. My friend's burger seemed fine as did her sweet potato fries.

I have the dry age sir line it was dry tough and little flavor. The creamed spinach was lukewarm but the garlic fingerling potatoes were delicious. The cheesecake was very good but was not worth $14.00. I was very disappointed for my first visit.

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!!

The ambiance was wonderful but there was a piece of plastic in my lobster risotto. We informed the staff and they deducted a round of drinks from the tab.
