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 miss the old Tavern on the Green. The renovations do not compare to the old magical ambiance. The food was very average an extremely overpriced. I don’t mind paying for atmosphere, but it is gone. No more lights in the trees or covered dining area. We will not return.

Wonderful atmosphere. We started at the outdoor bar which overlooks Cental Park. Great way to visit Tavern on the Green. We were then seated at a nice table for two just inside , closest to the window. Absolutely beautiful. We had a steak special for two at $125.00 for the two of us. This was pretty good, but I wouldn't order it again. Carrot cake was hearty and moist ,but not the best presentation. It looked like a mini meatloaf. We originally booked to dine in the bar area. I don't recommend doing this. Service was wonderful. Food was good. I've had better and worse. It's really all about location, location ,location. You need to go at least once.

Went to dinner with my sister and my son. It was a magical evening, and one we won't forget. Service was excellent, food was excellent, and the setting was lovely. My son said it was the best meal he'd ever eaten. We loved the truffle mac&cheese, the roasted fig and goat cheese appetizer, and the creme brûlée.

We haven’t been to Tavern on the Green for years and I’m sorry we’ve forgotten about this gem. Everything about it was fabulous - the atmosphere, the service, the food... in fact we plan to go there again before we leave town. For starters I had the Chopped Vegetable Salad with Caper Dressing...it was perfect! The vegetables were diced in small pieces and an there were an amazing variety - the dressing was light and tangy and perfect for the vegetable selection. My husband had the Manhattan Clam Chowder which was light and delicious. We couldn’t resist the Maple Glrilled Smoked Bacon and that was truly to die for!!!! We were debating on our entrees, trying to decide between the Grilled Trout Amandine and the Maine Lobster Pot Pie. Since we had eaten 3 appetizers, we decided to share the Lobster Pot Pie - which was a heavenly decision!! It is a huge serving - more than large enough for two people to share (in fact, we couldn’t finish it, even though we tried!!!) In our opinion, Tavern on the Green is a MUST!!

We were seated in the all-white area which is newly remodeled compared to 10 years ago and the hard surface floors get a bit noisy but still OK. A rough / un-even surface wood floor would reduce the noise.

We spent a long weekend in NYC doing a foodie weekend and ended it with Sunday Brunch here. I had the Eggs Benedict Florentine and my husband had the Shrimp and grits. We had started with the roasted figs. Everything was delicious, served at the right temperature in warm plates(except the figs on greens) and great portion sizes. The weather was nice enough to sit outside. It was worth making sure we had tried this iconic spot at least once as Boston residents.

We had a great time at the bar. Great atmosphere and overall venue is beautiful!
We had drinks before dinner and were then seated.
The restaurant was also beautiful. The bar area is classic. Our waitress was nice and we ordered drinks and 4 appetizers. We decided we were not hungry enough to get entrees since we had eaten our way around the city all day. When we told her we were going to stick with the appetizers - the whole attitude and feeling changed. They quickly started clearing areas of the table. Even took one of the drinks away prior to us finishing. Felt rushed out - interest was in turning the table. Spent plenty of money since we had drinks and 4 + appetizers.

Life long New Yorkers and it was our first time there. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and it was
an amazing experience! The food was delicious and perfect and the service was outstanding. Our server, Santiago overheard us talking about the occasion and brought us over their house-made birthday cake without us even asking. A rare and special gift for whomever dines there.

Four of us had a lovely brunch in the glass enclosed garden room on Saturday. We were there to celebrate one of our special birthdays on our visit to NYC. The room was so pretty and very fresh looking. We had a great waiter, Daniel M who was sooo nice and really added to the good experience we had. He was so patient about explaining ingredients and preparation of food. He refilled coffee and water quickly upon request. He checked on us often and smiled a lot. Food was very good, especially the molten chocolate peanut butter birthday dessert.
Recommend going at least once on a visit to NYC. Make reservations ahead of time. It was very busy.
