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.

Tavern on the Green is one of my favorite NYC spots! It’s perfect! And with the exception of a glitch in the timing of our order, we loved everything! Started with the breakfast flatbread to share — simple and delicious! And then chose two appetizers for my entree — potato pancakes and yogurt.

We arrived early and our table was ready for us. We actually picked an indoor table at the window glass with a terrific view of the inner garden area. Lovely! We had drinks at the bar before we sat down and the bartender Stephanie made a mistake on our beverage bill. I get the feeling if I didn't look, I would have been over charged. She also had some attitude about how I wanted my drink! Sheesh. Once at our lovely table, our waiter, Earl, took excellent care of us! We ordered the crab cake and the octopus which were bland but attractive. She had the seafood special which was also bland. I had the NY steak which was excellent. They gave us a delicious slice of cake for dessert. Not a bad experience, but certainly not as good as we expected for spending $250. We will try it again in the future.

Sunday night. Empty restaurant. Sat next to kitchen despite being asked to move to the several open tables by the window. Led to table which was not set up. Asked the hostess to keep quiet that we wanted to pick up the bill as a surprise/present for my parents 46th wedding anniversary, and yet she came over asking the table whose card she had, ruining the surprise and letting people know we already paid. Took the server ages to take our drink order and subsequently our food order. Not worth the $1,000+ we spent.

The building is historic and beautiful. The outdoor patio was enchanting. We had a lovely evening and the wait staff was professional, charming, and efficient. I don't regret going and spending a lovely evening there to celebrate our 30th anniversary. The food was well prepared and came out quickly but it was just bland. I had the salmon and it was perfectly cooked and salmon is tasty enough to hold its own but it wasn't special in any way. The same with the chicken. I'm impressed that this historic establishment can serve so many people very efficiently and it had a lot of charm but I was underwhelmed with the food.

Return to tavern on the green. Was an occasional diner of the original. Place looks nice enough but lacking in any real ambience that made the original so special. Actually it look like they used the formula that many of the television designers are using the recreate spaces. We were not impressed with the open kitchen as we would have preferred admiring the greens of Central Park instead of viewing the kitchen staff. Food was very good. We had the bacon and egg flat bread, the eggs Benedict, and the brioche French toast was simply divine with Maple syrup and homemade whipped cream. Our server was pleasant enough but failed to ever asked us if we wanted coffee. Don't hesitate to stop by if you find yourself in Central Park for brunch but I don't think it's necessary to complete the Central Park experience.

Waiter was Brooklyn born and so funny and attentive which was a surprise. Food was just delicious and coffee was the best. Perfect Brunch experience. Lovely decor and food orders were beautiful and smelled Devine. The employee Entrance employees were not helpful. I drove in looking for parking and when asked was told “I don’t have a clue where there is parking” turning the car around there was a lot in “plain clear view” across the street. not cool!

Food mediocre. Outside seating terrible with wobbly table with hot environment due to clear plastic top which made you feel like you were in a greenhouse baking. Brunch menu boring and tasteless. Rude manager who asked us not to eat a piece of baklava out of my purse because it wasn’t purchased there yet no one offered dessert menu. Check for two for brunch $140 for a hamburger and steak and eggs which consisted of three small pieces of sliced steak and French fried fingerling potatoes. A far cry from the old tavern on the green.

Food was interesting and fantastic. Enjoyed every bite. Waiter was knowledgeable and made excellent recommendations. I was disappointed that the restaurant seemed more casual than I had anticipated. from patrons in shorts and sneakers to staff in varying styles and shades of black. Table setting was also very casual. But the food was excellent and it was a beautiful night in Central Park.
