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.

Did not live up to its reputation. The butternut squash soup was very good, as was the chopped vegetable salad. The grilled lobster and pea risotto was more like lobster crumbs and raw pea risotto. The short ribs were average. Ambiance was beautiful.

This place is magical... perfect for something special. Food was over the top delicious. Service was very friendly but slow. The biggest issue was this was my daughter's 13th Birthday. I sent numerous emails regarding a Birthday candle in her dessert. Was responded to that all would be taken care of. There are many Celebrations at this gorgeous spot and she saw a lot of Birthday songs and candles go by during our dinner. When her dessert arrived there was nothing...
she was crushed and then me running around trying to find out/fix what went wrong just made it worse. They finally showed up with a candle and a slice of cake. Just a flat ending. It was still beautiful and we are Blessed to have visited.

I cannot begin to express how fantastic the staff is. It was my birthday and they went out of their way to make it special. The manager came by to wish me happy birthday by name and they gave us a great table. I will be making this a yearly tradition.

We were greeted warmly and immediately shown to a table. The food was excellent as was the ambiance - tho the noise level was very loud. Only negative was initial service. It took a while to be waited on and the water guy forgot to bring our water and never offered bread. Once our waiter got involved things moved much more quickly.

So disappointing. I was there few weeks ago and it was a great experience and made reservations again when friends were visiting. Too slow to sit us down. Initially our table was in full sun which we refused. Took 1:15 minutes to get our food! Super slow service my brother asked 5 different people to bring his drink! My cousin had to leave before dessert to pick up her kid. Pity. I had hoped it would become my go to place but we don’t have time for 31/2 hours long lunches on a Friday .

Waited more than 20 minutes to be greeted for drinks. It took 45 minutes to receive our appetizer. The Cobb Salad was much too heavily dressed and limp. The price tag is too steep - $125 for lunch for two - to have anything but exceptional food and service.

Dined in outdoor patio for lunch. Food was great (pea risotto and cobb salad); South Africa wine good value; service superb (no obvious staff shortages). Much better experience compared to prior visits pre-pandemic. Highly recommended.

Beautiful, magical setting outside. Menu is way too limited. It would be nice if it offered pizza and more pastas at dinner. Live music was a bit schmaltzy for my taste. Jazz or old standards would have been much better.

You’ll never make a mistake in dining at Tavern on the Green. The hostesses and waiters are friendly and quick. The manager Jordan is welcoming and keeps things running smoothly. And the food never disappoints. Ask for the specials - they’re the best. Thanks guys.

We had such a beautiful evening. Our server was wonderful, the food was outstanding and The musician was so talented. We had The fillet mignon special, and the short rib dish, both were very good. The shrimp appetizer and garlic butter was also excellent. . Not only was the restaurant absolutely wonderful, but they surprised me with a dessert for my birthday. We will definitely return.

Beautiful location and ambience is outstanding. Servers are very courteous if a little busy. Food needs some work to justify the cost. That said the pasta special, although small, was great. French onion soup was ok, but too sweet. Cobb salad was rather tasteless. It was romaine lettuce with a few topping. Although there was 1/2 an avocado, there was so little chicken I’m not even sure there was 1 full ounce. Deviled egg on the salad was good, but truthfully for $28 it was incredibly disappointing. The burgers served around us did look good though. They cost about the same. So go fit the ambience, but skip the soup and salad.

I had a very memorial 25th anniversary lunch at Tavern on the Green this week. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was romantic, and the staff was courteous. I highly recommend this restaurant for an anniversary, a date night, or event a romantic lunch.

My daughter and I ordered the fig appetizer which was a delicious mix of savory and sweet. Our waiter suggested the special lamb shank with polenta and spinach and it was melt-in-your-mouth good. And since we were splitting everything, we finished it off with creme brulee and cappuccino. We didn't order the weather, but who doesn't love NYC in October? It was a lovely lead-in to the ballet at 7:30.

This is a beautiful restaurant with great big windows and great outdoor seating. Too bad they sat me in front of, and facing, the kitchen. All I heard was banging pots and pans, and all I was able to view was food prep. This seating would be better as outward facing booths. Be sure to assist the host in picking your seating when coming here.

Our tradition on Birthday weekend is to have Sunday Brunch at The Tavern on the Green. They’ve never disappointed us and this time is no different. The Eggs Benedict and French Toast as always amazing! Peach Bellini is a delight every time. Great friendly staff and ambience and Central Park make this our favorite place in NYC

We were spending the weekend in NYC with our grandchildren and wanted to treat them to a special breakfast at an iconic Central Park restaurant. Our brunch was simply delicious. The service and setting were outstanding. We started with a pastry basket with a wonderful assortment of goodies. For our main meals we had Brioche french toast, Eggs Benedict and Steak and Eggs. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals and my grandson also enjoyed a Shrimp Cocktail with delicious hot chocolate. All in all a very memorable meal.
