Daughter birthday lunch
A New York classic! On a beautiful spring afternoon sit outside and enjoy the views of the park. Consistently great food!
Food was very good, the place super nice, service was not to the level I expected, the waiter was nice but kept forgetting our food and also a little bit slow.
This was my second time visiting this year. I came back because the food and service were amazing. Unfortunately, this time the food was amazing as always (I had the salmon) but my experience was ruined by poor service. The waiter was extremely slow it took 30 minutes to get the dessert menu after he asked if we would like to see one. We almost left at that point but we really wanted the Crème Brule. When we finally got our check, he left with my card for about 15 minutes.
I do love the food but am hesitant to return because of the service. For our family this was a special event that left us frustrated.
My wife and I are from Los Angeles. We had always heard of this place as a special dining experience. We were happy with the food, service, and ambiance. There were more people and a bit nosier than what we expected. Overall, it was great place to have dinner on a "date".
The service was very fast and the food was amazing. I would definitely go again and recommend to all
Beautiful out in sun. Service and food good. Had reservation but had to wait quite a while after our reservation time
I had a lovely visit to Tavern on the Green for my friends 60th birthday. Check in service was slick and we were seated outside as we requested. Food choices are good for brunch and the service was quick. We did not have dessert as our main meals were so filling although the server did bring a birthday ice cream along with candle which was a nice touch. My only complaint was that when the bill needed paying we could not see our server. I took the bill inside and a waiter took the bill and payment from me. The original server came in to the restroom and asked in view of others about the bill payment. I did feel that this was embarrassing and was the only negative overall. The bill query could have been more discrete.
Oh for the good old days. TAVERN is now a place of jogging shorts and tennis shoes for Sunday Brunch.
Where the waitstaff is much better than the Chefs. And the shorts clad patrons are at the bottom of the list.
Brunch on the porch. FANTASTIC!!!
Maple bacon was perhaps the best breakfast treat EVER!
We had perfect weather and Muriel was an awesome server.
Enjoyed our Sunday brunch to finish our New York visit. More vegetarian options would be nice. Latte was OK but not awesome.
The presentation of the French toast was stunning - almost too beautiful to eat! Nate, our server, recommended their maple bacon as a side since it was a specialty of Tavern, and after one bite, you can taste why! Tavern was even willing to make special cocktails for us, and they came out perfectly. We even squeezed in a dessert (the peanut butter chocolate lava cake), and it was to die for! Nate and the rest of the staff were friendly and attentive throughout the entire visit. It was a wonderful meal and experience.
great food, great service, amazing people
I was looking forward to dining at TOTG, primarily due to the fabulous reviews and fond memories of nights spent there many years ago.
Unfortunately, our experience was less than expected! Maybe it was because of the wedding that was going on at the same time, or just a very very busy spring Saturday evening, but the service-level was generally poor, the food was OK, and the four of us dining together all agreed it just wasn’t great!
Our server, Francesca, seemed to be having an off night. I rarely have problems with waitstaff, but in this case, the numerous bus people and bread/water servers were more attentive and pleasant.
The strangest part was having to ask three times after being seated to get drinks served! We were served bread and butter and offered to hear the specials before she relented to our repeated requests for cocktails. Not good
How dinners were OK, we skipped dessert over to his head what was described as Burnt decaf coffee.
Wonderful location, beautiful interior space. I think next time we’ll sit outside and just have drinks and appetizers
Fabulous time at the Tavern on the Green. It was my first visit, but won’t be my last. Service was excellent, food off the charts and their mixed drinks / cocktails to die for!! I was very impressed. Be sure to book a reservation early so you can get a great seat at this gem in Central Park.
We had such a fabulous time at Tavern on the Green! My daughter had her first Broadway audition so we were celebrating afterwards. The staff seated us sooner then our reservation time in the lovely chandelier room. Thank you for doing this. My daughter was so hungry! She's 11. It was a magical experience! There was one issue where her food had spinach on it that we had asked be left off but she's not one to complain so just ate around it. She loved the dish. We loved our waiter who was upbeat and friendly and truly made sure all our needs were met. You all are doing an EXCELLENT job. We will definitely be back with our whole family next time.
The food and ambiance exceeded all expectations. The outside dining added to our pleasurable experience.
Great lunch w friends at iconic restaurant! What a treat!
The food, service, and setting were all wonderful! It is overpriced, but you pay for the ambiance and tradition. Definitely a worthy experience.
Beautiful place to have brunch for my daughter’s 18th birthday!
One of my all time favorite restaurants! We cannot wait to go back! The french toast is something dreams are made of!
Great location and good food. The rack of lamb was sublime
1st time there. Have always wantrd to try. Wondrrful experience service was top
The iconic name of Tavern on the Green came up when we planned our stay at a nearby hotel. I saw some mixed reviews but if you know what to anticipate I think you will enjoy your evening there. Several reviewers noted the change in dress code over the years. Their website suggests smart causal. We saw patrons dressed in everything from suits and nice dresses to jeans. I think the recommended smart causal is appropriate. We were seated in the glass atrium area with a beautiful view. However, as some had noted, it was quite chilly. I saw a senior aged couple, dressed to the nines, and the woman put on her winter jacket as her meal was set in front of her. We had the delicious cream of asparagus soup and the chicken which was fantastic! When our serve came to ask how our dinner was I told him the food was great but it seemed overly chilly and I pointed out the lady with her coat on. Within a minute a woman came over and asked the same question and I gave her the same answer. She said they had turned the heat up and it should warm up quickly. It really did. The noise level is substantial. We opted to sit in the bar afterwards. There was a good jazz band and people were dancing. I don't know that I'd go again but it was overall, a good experience and I appreciate the prompt response to the heating issue.
This is a New York institution - we were here for a large family dinner with out of town guests. Lots of tourists. Our poor waiter apillled the wine, so they gave us a free appetizer. I recommend the tomahawk steak for two and the garlic shrimp appetizer. You are paying for the unique location.
We are out of towners and we’re taking our daughter on a special trip to nyc. We were early to our res but ended up being seated 20-25 mins after our booking. We were seated for lunch in a very cramped and confining space with no view. Service seemed slow but friendly and seemed to have too many people to attend to. Not worth the visit.
We returned to the Tavern after more than 10 years with mixed feelings. It looks good but it lost the impressive touches of the past. The shop is more like a Times Square tourist trap, nothing like before. The food was great - loved the grilled octopus and chorizo - but our friend was vegetarian and his options were very limited.
Too crowded. Literally felt as if the diners on either side of us were part of our party? In fact, a patron at the table next to us jokingly turned to ask what we were having. We all felt extremely close.
I was told this was a cliche place to eat, but I must disagree. The food was great, the dining room lovely, service was perfect and it seemed to be full of locals, rather than tourists (well, except us). I must rave about the vegetable salad I had. Vegies were blanched to a perfect crisp but not too crisp perfection. The caper dressing was light and just right. My colleague had the spinach flat bread and we both agreed that it needed a sauce or something to provide more moisture. Our cocktails were very good. I would return for sure.
It was a nice experience, everyone should do it once, but unless sitting at a window table it is way to noisy. You can hear everyone's conversation sitting in adjoining tables and it feels like your intruding on them. Food was ok, not outstanding. Gorgeous interior. Had my husband's favorite beer.
Beautiful lunch...It felt like summer at our table even though it was cold outside. Surrounded by glass with park views of trees and flowers coming into bloom & sunshine. Couldn’t have been more perfect.
Wonderful experience with our teenage grand children!
All around great experience.
In town for a week, wanted to do something special for dinner. We arrived earlier than our reserved time, on a Tuesday, we were seated immediately. Place had plenty of empty tables.
We had a table with a great view of the park.
The chef's special was the Tomahawk bone in rib eye for $129 (for 2). I had the salmon and the bass. Salmon was excellent and my wife's bass was so-so. We shared an order of garlic wedges, (excellent), no wine, and our bill came to $110 with tax/tip.
Mom’s first visit to NYC and the short rib at Tavern on the Green came highly recommended. It did not disappoint, it was excellent, as was our service and entire experience right down to the kind doorman who walked out to the road in the rain to hale a taxi for us!!
In fairness, we attended brunch at 3pm on Sunday. Maybe it would have been a different experience during an evening dining time. There were only a couple of items that were not breakfast fare. My mother had steak and potatoes, and she could not cut the steak, and she did not enjoy the potatoes. My husband and I had the burger. I ordered medium, and it came out red. They did take it back and let it cook to medium. We were looking forward to an "experience"; but we felt very hurried and had little time to have any kind of experience you would expect from the famous Tavern on the Green. We were very disappointed.
I was not happy with the service. It was slow and the staff did not clean the table immediately and I had to keep calling the staff to place the order. Drinks were late...I was done with desert by the time we got the coffee. There was no nice music as a background.
