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.

    Had it not been a gorgeous September Sunday, it still would have been a wonderful experience! Hesitant to be surrounded by tourists, we took a chance and were more than pleasantly surprised. The outdoor space was beautiful and quiet. Everything was impeccable and we weren’t rushed. Would definitely dine here again!

    Waitress, Serena was good but not available consistently. I wanted to order a glass of wine with my dinner which was delivered by another person and Serena didn’t return until I was almost finished eating. Atmosphere was beautiful outside. Both my husband’s and my dinner was delicious. We shared a dessert which was the chocolate peanut butter lava cake. Ice cream was amazing! Lava cake was dry and tasteless. I think it may have been sitting around too long.

    First time visiting this iconic establishment. Food was above expectations but the service from our server was less than top notch. I eaves dropped on the table next to us and their server was much better. While that table’s server explained the food and didn’t rush his guests, ours didn’t really offer explanations of the dishes and seemed to want to machine gun our dishes out to us even though they didn’t seem to be very busy on this early Friday (5:45p) dinner. I’m glad I experienced this legendary establishment but doubt I’ll be back based on the service alone. At this price, there are so many other options in NYC whose service level matches the quality of food. When you spend this kind of cash, you really want the whole package and when just one of the many components of the experience is lacking you just don’t come back.

    Service and ambience absolutely fantastic. My wife had the salmon burger which she enjoyed thoroughly. I had the beer batter fish and chips which, while the fish was very good, the batter was limp and undercooked on the inside instead of crisp and firm which I would have preferred. For desert I had the chocolate peanut butter lava cake which my wife wanted to share. After one bite she had to order her own. Definitely a must try!

    As a native New Yorker, I’ve watched this place change over the years. It’s back like a Phoenix! Insider best kept nyc secret. Old school swank. The tourists are underdressed but there are few and good for them for sliding in. Thank you to lovely Kelsey & Vanessa for making it a memorable luncheon.

    Atmosphere, food, and service are excellent. The one caveat is that Thursday-Sunday there is apt to be music which makes conversation difficult. The other days are better for that reason. It's really a lovely place to eat!

    As we arrived early we sat at the bar for a drink. The surroundings are lovely. When called to our table we were seated outside in a courtyard with another bar and music playing. Service was first class and the food great. Spending a night eating and drinking is recommended.

    I found it very strange that when there were plenty of free places in the shade I was offered a place in the sun. I also found it very strange how untidy some things were, such as the furniture, the presentation of the tables and the hurry of the waiters to get you out of the place.

    The food was over priced and mediocre - we waited an hour to just get water that we had to ask for. Wouldn’t recommend. This place seems okay for tourists that don’t mind over paying for bodega level food.

    This must be the most disappointing dinner experience in NYC of my lifetime. Reheated bread to start, bland butter, following by a 20m wait for appetizers. Appetizers were ok but the crab cake comes with a pre-packaged salad! Then, another 45m wait for the main. I got the $59 NY Sirloin, asked for medium, got a burned steak instead that was inedible. Server offered to replace it but by then it was too late to cause any good impression. Service was poor, food was actually bad and by the end of it we were just thinking about never going back. Save your money and spend the same to get an unforgettable experience at Peak for example, same price, a world apart in food quality and experience all together. (fair point, restaurant didn't charge for the steak but still, we didn't go there to save money, we went there to eat proper food and celebrate an anniversary)
