We were there to celebrate my daughter’s 20th birthday. Food was good, service was ok. Our waiter kept forgetting little things such as sugar for my, coffee, the little forks and plates for our oysters, cleaning our table before dessert. Overall a good experience. I’d definitely come back. Just know this is a busy place. Reservations are recommend. Service will just be ok.
Amazing food, great value
We lucked out getting reservations on the most beautiful Sunday morning in a long time. We sat outside on the patio and were greeted warmly by our server. We ordered just a bowl of fresh fruit, smoked applewood bacon and basket of pastries. The fruit was perfectly ripe strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries. The best I’ve had in a very long time. The bacon was thick and delicious. The pastries were soft croissants, a chocolate chip scone, a blueberry scone with blueberry jam, banana bread and a muffin. All extremely fresh. We just had iced coffee and it was better than our drive-thru favorite. Our server was perfect other than having to ask twice for Splenda. I would go there weekly if we lived in the city.
Great atmosphere, service and food. Would recommend to any NYC visitors. Method used by hosts to find waiting diners could use some refinement
Great vet I’ve and very nice restaurant. Very pricey. But we ate well. And it was our anniversary so we splurged a bit.
Just Wow! Perfect place to spend the day throwing back Oysters and Champagne. We had the Sea food tower and a nice bottle of Rosé. The service is great and the live music is wonderful!
Thank you XOXO
It is a very nice restaurant in the big park. We booked a table for dinner. The meat was nice. We had live music in the evening. The service was excellent.
The restaurant exceeded my modest expectations. My sub $10 appetizer was superb. The suggested beer, a local brew, was one of the smoothest I have ever tried, served at the proper temperature. The main dish was quite good and not at all over priced. After brunch we stepped outside just as a horse carriage appeared and off we went for a 45 minute ride around the park drives that left us at 7th Ave and CP South.
I love the relaxed feel of this place, live band and foods are delicious. Arrived in last min with large party and still get seating outdoor. Very accommodating !
Beautiful outdoor space in the evening. Great atmosphere - live jazz quartet. We dined inside, beautiful decor, but very loud. Food was above average, reasonably priced, nice seafood. Overall, a wonderful evening!!
Exceeded all expectations. Friendly staff, exceptional food, ambience was spectacular. Would love to go back.
We had an incrible time dining at Tavern on the Green! Meg, our waitress was so efficient and a pleasure! The food was fantastic! The view-perfect! The truly was a special time for my family! Thank you💕
Service was slow. Got the order wrong. Menu limited. Expected this to be a Special Place. Just another place. Nothing special about this place except the name.
Overall- great. The food was excellent except the burger was ordered medium and it was more rare- medium rare. Should have sent it back. Also the salt vinegar chips had no vinegar taste. Service was spot on.
Loved the restaurant! Great atmosphere and delicious food. Staff was super friendly! Great experience for a girls trip.
Wonderful lunch, beautiful day outside seating was perfect
Service is top notch. Ambiance is lovely. Good value for the price considering the location.
Always a favorite on a beautiful spring evening. We used to love it just for the ambience but with the new ownership the food has really ramped up and the cocktails are divine. Bravo!
Food and drink were great! It was my mothers 85th birthday and was treated like a queen. Our waiter Jose was great
I’ve been to NYC many times including Central Park yet it was my first time at the tavern, more like a garden restaurant backdropped by the wonderful Central Park. What a pleasure to find a nice place in the middle of busy city. We could relax, enjoy the beautiful ambience, good service and delicious food till we went for Lincoln center on foot, only 10 min. away. My girl friend and i’d like to return there even in the rain as it’ll offer more cost settings as well.
Were seated at table about 3:30 - server didn’t stop by for about 15 minutes. Was not attentive - never returned to refresh drinks. We wanted dessert and we had to flag another waiter down to find him. Loved the newly remodeled area. Glad you are open again after remodeling.
Second visit this trip, again stellar. Really enjoyed the steak frite and the service was great. Highly recommend eating at the Tavern.
You come here for the experience of eating in one of the most famous restaurants in the world. The food is good - not great - but the atmosphere is wonderful.
The outdoor patio is beautiful and so relaxing. We dined during the day with a nice shade above us- at night there are beautiful lights. Service and food was fantastic.
Everytime we are in NY we come here for a relaxing glass of wine etc This is the first time we were deflated with everything. Food was average and warm, took ages. We asked four times for salt and pepper and it never arrived. Mayo was a no show! Staff were too interested in one another for attentive service, artificial hugging of one another etc etc. Did i enjoy my evening? It was ok, would i rush back no not really. I would say it needs a good shake up from top down
When we are in NYC we always have dinner at the Tavern .Love the location in Central P ark, especially on the patio.
I had the morancan Swordfish and my wife had the chicken. Both over priced, but the ambiance and service more than compensated to make this an enjoyable evening.
Amazing service, amazing experience, the patio was breath taking.
Lovely experience. They were really thoughtful and made the occasion even more special!
Great place to celebrate an occasion with indoor or outdoor seating.
A special NYC treasure. Food was fantastic. Our waiter was outstanding and very accommodating.
Memories of going to Tavern on the Green and actually going to Tavern on the Green was disappointing. The entire experience was just "okay." So, the price did not match the experience. The food was good - not great. The décor is very nice - not great. The prices are very high for the experience.
Would I go back? No...Ugh! Too bad.
Excellent food and great service, a tad noisy and a tad pricey but hey, I guess this is New York.
Good food and great staff, in a wonderful venue. Really enjoyed it and the little gift shop was great too. Will definitely eat here again.
I had requested "at the glass," and we were not exactly at the glass, but it was ok. I was told there was no guarantee; this is the second time there, and this is the second time did not get an "at the glass" table... We had plenty of time to catch up with my daughter who had a layover at the airport and surprised my son for his birthday. She had mentioned to the hostess that it was her brother's birthday and our favorite was a surprise piece of cake for him at end of our lunch. My coffee was a little on the luke warm side, if I am to get "picky." I also wanted plain water, but was not offered it... We had a great time, though, burgers were good, portion size acceptable... higher priced, but worth it to dine in such an iconic place. We shall return. Thank you! Will try again for an "at the glass" table!!
Wonderful experience. Had not been here for 6 years because of a terrible experience 6 years ago. New owner...nice renovation... wonderful from beginning to end. Staff very attentive and filled with information...mother's day meal was a bit pricy but one of the best meals we have had anywhere in a long time. Never rushed... felt well taken care of. Certainly will be back to experience the regular menu soon.
My family and I had an awesome time and the food was great? Just wish the portion size was bigger since the meal was pricey for Mother’s Day. But overall nice time and great place. Also like the picture booth. (Nice touch)

We retunred to Tavern on the Green as a treat after having had a great meal there 4 years ago. The service and the level of care and food quality has totally lost it's way and the only thing this place has for it is it's location. A truly disappointing meal and I would ask all to avoid it and to go to Loebs Boathouse instead which has held onto the quality of the food over the years.
Lovely brunch in this iconic location and although not the least expensive certainly an experience and memory creation. Lobster eggs Benedict delicious.
I've been to the tavern several times and this was by far the worst. Service was terrible and we were left waiting on several occasions. The food was mediocre at best and nothing that you couldn't get at a middle of the road all you can eat buffet. It is still a beautiful spot, but I would recommend you go for a cocktail and then pick a different restaurant.
