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 ambiance and the service are great. The quality of the food is absolutely mediocre when taking the price into account. I was honestly thinking that an amature chef would be able to deliver better plates than the ones you get served here. This was my second visit - decided to give them another chance- but that definitely will be my last!

We went for lunch, the host was very nice and accommodating, as we had arrived a little early. Our waiter was short and rude to start and suddenly became nicer when we found hair in one of our dishes. I enjoyed the ambience and it was very nice, but not sure I’d go back again.

My husband and I went for lunch as we usually do not coming to far just from Whitestone Queens. We always loved the old Tavern, but are starting to really like this too. Food was perfect and so was staff.

Loved the view of the garden. Windows all around and up to they ceiling made it bright and good for excellent viewing.

Disappointed in NO dress code. Many people with cutoff shorts and jeans. Certainly not up to Tavern par.

Maitre d and wait staff very professional and dressed appropriately;

Best service in NYC, wait staff was incredible. Food was reasonably price for lunch (filet mignon salad and steak sandwich) and served very quickly. The views around and inside the restaurant make the meal even more enjoyable!

Food was good but a bit overpriced. It was a hot day and sitting inside was not much more cooler than sitting outside. Seating was packed in.

Sitting in the back-last room was disappointing. The chairs are awful and there’s 0 a atmosphere. Built it up to our teenage children and then sat in an uncomfortable blah room - could have been anywhere

The servers were good, both friendly and efficient. The maître d' could have been better. He was selectively nice to customers. Even worse, it was apparent. I wasn’t much bothered by this but others at my table were considerably put off by this (understandably)

Atmosphere was excellent and you come here for the location as much as the food which was very good overall

Tavern on the Green has a wonderful setting in Central Park, and the restaurant is lovely. However, it felt like one of those restaurants where busses unload hoards of tourists. Our waiter was good, but overall service was rushed, disorganized, and chaotic. Nobody asked me about wine. Our water/tea was not refilled. I requested bread and then our bread plates were picked up and after that bread was brought to the table. Our silverware was collected for no reason before the meal was served. The main course was brought and left on the table while we were eating our appetizer. Each course came out very fast. If you have a big group and a special occasion like a wedding dinner, I'm sure it would be lively and fun. Not the place to go for a nice, sophisticated, relaxed meal.

Dinner was okay. Perhaps my expectations were too high for dessert. The waiter said that carrot cake was the restaurant’s signature dessert. But it was disconcerting to see a thin hair or thread (about 1/6 to 1/5 of an inch long) on the icing of my slice of carrot cake—which was a tad dry, to be honest. Also, staff periodically swept in the dining area while we were eating. While they didn’t sweep directly around us, it wasn’t appetizing to see what was getting swept up near our table.
