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.

The waiter was absolutely delightful and accommodating of my dairy allergy. He truly knew the menu inside and out to assist me in making the right choice. This place is a must when visiting the city.

TOTG was a delightful experience. The food from cocktails, appetizer, entree and dessert receive 5 stars in my perspective. The ambiance has always been attractive and continues to be a great setting. In closing let me say TOTG is a must for New Yorkers and tourist alike.

My wife and I came to New York to see a show and want to come here because of the food, the service, and the beautiful outdoor dining!

Such an amazing time!

Our Waitress, forget her name, but short blond hair and a Celtic.
She was delightful and banter back with my silliness.

Perfect afternoon noon respite!

Thank you!

It was a lovely atmosphere however, the food was very overpriced and wasn’t very good. Wait staff was really nice and very accommodating.

Food was great. We tried, and loved, a very different kind of calamari salad. Our waitress was very upbeat and all staff was polite and cheerful. We enjoyed sitting outside in a lovely atmosphere.

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.
