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 staff is very accommodating and professional. They sat us down but made a mistake and asked us to move, which was odd but they were very accommodating in picking out a table we liked. The outdoor patio is an oasis inside a bustling city and the food was very good. The breakfast pizza is great and the biscuits are some of the best out there…. would like for them to be able to sell just a basket of those. It’s not your fathers Tavern but the newer version is every bit as enjoyable, maybe more.

Had a lovely brunch here, outdoors. Food and drinks were excellent. Service, once someone showed up, was friendly.

We sat for 10-15 minutes without a server and watched tables that arrived after us being served promptly. When I flagged someone down, he was very friendly and took care of us right away.

It was also awkward when we were seated (with a young child and a very pregnant woman in our party) at a full-sun table when many shady tables were empty. When we asked to be moved to a table about 10 feet away (or ANY table in the shade), the staff, although not impolite, acted like it was an extraordinary request. About 4-5 staff members hemmed and hawed and considered all kinds of options while we stood there waiting. The hostess told us a couple of times that she could not move us. She definitely put protocol and red tape ahead of customer satisfaction in that moment. The staff seemed paralyzed to make a decision until a manger (presumably) stepped in and finally seated us at a table in the shade.

Overall a great experience with perfect food and ambiance. Just more awkward than what you’d expect from an upscale restaurant. We still plan to return.

Tavern on the Green is an experience!! We loved eating outside at night and the live music was just lovely; it all made for a wonderful time. The food was also enjoyable and the creme brulee was my favorite of the evening!

I hated giving only four stars for service as our waitress was excellent, but whoever was working the bar was extremely slow. It took quite a long time to get one glass of wine. The manager did notice and comped our dessert.

The jazz group performing made the evening even more special. We asked for a specific song and they played it. Tavern on the Green is certainly a place to go for a special occasion.

One cannot believe that you are in the middle of Manhattan. The patio, dining outside is a treat. Atmosphere, food and especially the service is outstanding. The band and the singer is such a treat and so is the dancing. One could not ask for a better dining experience anywhere. We were celebrating out anniversary and the staff make it extra special for us. Cannot wait to return again. This is a neighborhood restaurant for us.

We sat in the courtyard. The noise level is low when they don't have live music. Live music puts the noise to moderate but we could still talk and be heard. We are all vegetarian, and had the cauliflower steaks, which are large slices of cauliflower char grilled. They also have a seasonal roast vegetable dish which isn't on the menu so it's worth asking the server if it is available. It comes with a miso sauce. The outdoor setting is magical. The service was perfect. We thought the food was pretty good value for money.

Favorite place to eat while in N.Y. Service is always top notch and always happy with the food and drinks. The atmosphere is what draws us here. Quiet, relaxing, and elegant. They even brought me a special birthday treat for the table to share. Will definitely be returning!

I suggested seveal excellent venues for the occassion. Tavern on the Green was the unanimous choice. We could not have made a better choice. Initially, there was some confusion related to when we could be seated, and the first seating was far from exceptable, but once this was taken care of our experience was an enjoyable one. Our server, Nicolai, was great - as was the gentleman who took efficient charge of unraveling our initial seating dilemma and who provided a complimentary favor by way of apology.

Very special place. Ambiance was great, service was e exceptional, and food was gourmet. Only negative was table was tight for our party of four, especially when we ordered a bottle of champagne and the waiter wanted
to leave the bucket on the table which would have left little room for entre plates. So we put the bucket on the ground which took away from the dining experience. In saying that I would go, back.
