About Tavern on the Green

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.

We had a wonderful brunch for our son's 40th birthday with a small gathering, of family and friends ranging in age from under 1 to over 75. Everyone was very happy. The service was relaxed, very flexible and altogether charming. The champagne is reasonably priced which was a treat, The dishes varied in quality, Eggs Benedict with lobster was great but French Toast was too sweet for our taste. Altogether a great place to celebrate -- and afterwards to take the grandchildren on the carousel!

Went to a Brunch before a show on Broadway. Service was very good and we had a table overlooking the outside courtyard and the park. The wait staff and all the staff were very professional throughout our time. We were not rushed at all. The menu is a bit limited but each of us found something which filled our needs. I would have liked to see a broader menu and the ability to order some eggs on the side. Overall, a very good experience and happy we went there.

Always enjoy the food here when we visit Central Park. It's always busy so reservations are suggested. We arrived early and the staff set up extra seats at the bar for us while we waited. The waiter had several restaurant recommendations that were spot on. We will be back!

We stop here for brunch every time we visit the city! It’s so cozy and romantic. The brunch is so tasty and makes us crave more. It’s our favorite brunch spot. I highly recommend their French toast. I’m not into blueberries but I eat them all with this dish. It’s just delicious. Also, their bacon appetizer (I get it on the side of my meal) is by far the best I’ve had. Wow! This place is great!!

We went for brunch on Saturday morning. Husband got eggs benedict, which is his meter for rating breakfasts. On the brunch menu, the tavern burger! Yes, it was 10 am, but the BEST 'breakfast' sandwich I've ever had! Perfectly cooked to your order ( medium) and so well seasoned you don't need to add ANY condiments! Attentive service rounded out the meal perfectly.

Went to have dinner before a show and it was amazing! Food was great and our server even better. Menu was enticing and reasonably priced for NYC. We look forward to returning for another great meal and to spend more time in the Bar area which was quite inviting!

We where excited to try this establishment as we had not been for since the previous owners over 20 years ago. WOW the service was atrocious; the food was bland and mediocre; and the dining room was extremely loud. I would not recommend this establishment to anyone.

We went to Tavern on the Green for brunch with family. It was quite lovely. I know it is a major tourist spot but I was pleasantly surprised. It was very cozy, food was good and we had a lovely brunch. Would like to come back in the spring/summer. I bet it is quite beautiful when things are in bloom.

 (New York Area)·Dined on January 13, 2018

Hoping they get a main course that’s edible. Grilled lobster risotto was lobster and rice at best. Waaaay too salty (had to cleanse my palette with water before I could drink my wine). Note to chef: arborio rice is supposed to be cooked and stirred in broth in a pan until creamy, not boiled or whatever else they do. For $44 this should have been a luscious meal rather than a total miss. High rating for service as the server removed this disaster from the bill. Such a waste of a great venue. Apps and deserts were good, but main courses need lots of help (probably new exec chef).

Service when you enter was fine. Appetizers were very good. Waiter seemed annoyed with having to serve us, even though the restaurant was quite empty. Best sweet potato fries I've ever had. That says a lot because I generally don't like sweet potato fries. The dipping sauce for the fries was delicious. I wanted the recipe. The bread of the day was prepared exquisitely. Main course was okay. I had the steak and potatoes. My wife chose the salmon burger. I expected it to be Tavern on the Green, steak and potatoes. It was not even as good as Peter Luger's. My wife left the salmon burger on the plate after two bites. She said it was very bland.
Dessert could have been good but someone was not paying attention. The Crème Broyle was iced cold inside. It had a nice, crispy top and it was tasty but it was like biting into iced cream. That may go over well in the summer months but it was fairly cold outside and I did not order iced cream. I've been to the boat house many times but this was my wife's fiftieth birthday and I wanted something memorable. I purchased champagne glasses from the gift shop to remind us that we did go there.
