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.

Sadly, we came here for for husband’s 40th birthday brunch and the food was awful. We went to tavern 15 years ago when we were dating so I thought it would have been nice to go back and bring the kids. While the ambiance and service were excellent, the food was awful. I ordered the chicken Caesar and the chicken was greasy and the dressing had 0 taste (like eating oil.) My husband had the shrimp and grits and said it had no taste as well. The only decent food was the potato pancakes and the birthday cake they brought out. We sent back our meals after a couple bites and decided to just leave after that and will not be returning.

We always make sure to dine at Tavern on the Green when we come to NYC; we sat outside and the weather was perfect. The brunch was delicious (I had the flatbread eggs/bacon) and a delicious berry sangria. We will be back when we are in the city in the Spring!

Food was good, but nothing spectacular. Service was not good at all. Sent back coffee and biscuit and gravy because they were literally stone cold. Took silverware after apps, and had to ask for more after main arrived. Had requested still water, and asst filled with tap as he was passing by. Really thought such an iconic restaurant would focus more on the guest experience. The atmosphere and location are the best though.

This is my first visit since the remodel/re-opening and I love the ambiance of this place – very modern and chic. The sauteed garlic shrimp was delicious! However, since my last visit in 2005 and 2008, the remainder of the meal left a lot to be desired. I anticipated the same moist, tender and succulent roasted chicken that drew me in during my last visit but instead, it was tasteless and dry. The buttery, smooth mashed potatoes were just "usual" and almost non-existent under the chicken and vegetables.
The presentation was just okay. I would expect much more from such an upscale establishment and hope that improvements are made asap.

We are serious gourmands and have eaten at Tavern many times in years past. We were surprised and quite shocked at the food preparation...Garlic Shrimp appetizer looked and tasted like boiled shrimp in a watery,
totally tasteless liquid...mushroom tart was fine. A $45 Lobster Risotto was a small portion and only shreds of rubbery claw meat were included. Dish was overwhelmed with chopped mango...otherwise tasteless!
$36 Short Rib Entree was again a small portion of 2 pieces of short rib, barely tender meat.
We did not have drinks, wine or desserts. Check was $153...very disappointed!!!

My husband and I were visiting NYC for the weekend. We had concert tickets that night and our server kept that in mind. She was awesome!! She had a great personality, friendly, attentive, and very knowledgeable of the menu items. We ordered the Tomahawk for 2. It was amazing!!! Will definitely go back next time we are in town.

Tavern on the Green is my favorite place to take my friends and family visiting the area and very convenient for residents of the UES. The service was spectacular and culturally diverse, which I definitely appreciate.

My wife and I had brunch here last Saturday while celebrating our 45th anniversary on a trip to New York. The last time we had eaten here was on a previous trip about 15 years ago. The restaurant has gone through a renovation since then. The atmosphere, the food and the service remains a very pleasant and relaxing experience. Tavern on the Green is truly an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city. To really appreciate the setting, a table on the outdoor patio is a must. Tavern on the Green will certainly remain a destination restaurant on future trips to New York.

Took my husband on a stroll through Central Park, as he’d never been before. Hadn’t been to this place for 30 years. Beautiful renovation, great service, terrific food. The staff was in a fun mood the day we were there, casual, funky vibe.

We were seated late from our reservation and felt very rushed to leave. The staff are ok when it comes to friendliness. They certainly could use some training. The food was ok but for the price could use some improvement. The medium hamburger was nearly raw meat. Never once were we asked if we were satisfied with our food. I stood in line for the bathroom only to hear a waiter tell the cute, young lady behind me where another bathroom was located but didn’t offer me the same information. This restaurant is in a very nice location but seems to have become lax on quality and service.

I was there for the salsa event and made reservations for 2. The event was outside but no seating available outside. I opted to wait a bit for outside seating . Less than 1/2 HR. we were seated outside enjoying food n drinks. I didn't care for the creaminess of the mushroom pastry . mushrooms have their own distinct flavor and I enjoy them simply sauteed with a lil salt n pepper. Hold the cream please. Overall enjoyed Great Salsa event with much dancing. 💃
