Unfortunately we got seated in the corner... next to the back door... cold air was coming in... I asked the waitress if they had anything else... and wouldn’t even bother to change us to another table...
I like going there... but after this... I will double think next time.
Very unfortunate....

Having been to this hotel restaurant before I was excited to stop by again on my next NY visit . I thought the potions that involved pasta were oversized and made the starter of my daughter and my main course unappetising . To be fair the server removed the main course from the bill. Overall the restaurant was quiet and lacked ambience - all in all disappointing

This was our 4th time having afternoon tea around the Christmas holiday at The Crosby Hotel. Our previous 3 visits were all great. The room is pretty, the food was always great and the overall experience was quite enjoyable. Sadly, it seems things have changed since our last visit. One of the items that was listed on the menu wasn't served to us until we questioned why it had not been included in our tea service and in general, the service was terrible. Our waiter literally seemed to disappear about half way through our meal and never returned. He came by to let us know he was getting us seconds on several items and eventually someone else delivered two of the 5 things we ordered and the rest never came. We had to seek someone else out to get our check after waiting for nearly 25 minutes. When I complained to the manager, she apologized and asked me to reach out to her on our next visit and she would make sure we had a better experience. There was no attempt to make THIS experience better, nor any real effort or explanation given to rectify the situation. Overall, it was a disappointing visit for what has always been a family tradition that we look forward to.

We were a party of 6. The waiter was accommodating to an extent but wasn’t very attentive.. Understand that it was a lunch time, but seemed like we were ignored most of the time. For a large check, I’m pretty surprised.

Whoever our host was was amazing. He was so friendly and attentive. Actually, the entire staff is extremely cordial. At the end of our meal, I was looking for our host but couldn’t find him and the bartender must have seen me looking around because he came over to our table to help us!

I came here for afternoon tea with my mom, mother-in-law and sister. Overall was happy with the tea service however, after going to an authentic high tea in London it really doesn't compare. I think the price point and ambiance is great, especially if bringing someone who hasn't been to an afternoon tea before or doesn't come into Manhattan often. The food was mediocre. The bread and some desserts seemed a bit dry, but we did have some menu favorites and left incredibly full. Great experience for those who have never been to afternoon tea or are looking for something more moderately priced.

We made a reservation and arrived early. I was told on arrival that the table would be ready in 15 minutes when our reservation was scheduled. No problem! Then I was told our reservation would be about ten minutes. Okay. Then I was told another 20 minutes. So now it's thirty minutes past my reservation time and I am finally walked to a table with my party when I am told by another employee that the empty table I am staring at is being held for some unknown party. When I asked what the problem was. I was given grief about making a last minute reservation. A reservation is a reservation! So I am walked back. One minute later I am walked back to the exact same table and told that the table is now available. There seemed to be descent among the ranks. They did make things better by giving us a glass of champagne gratis. I enjoy tea for the experience and relaxation. This particular visit failed on that front.

The food was awful. Not like the last time I visited maybe 4 years ago. It’s like cantine food with not style and over cooked. Not worth the money at all. We went there for our wedding anniversary and I still regret we spent the money there. Much much to expensive for the quality they offer.

Tuna tartare, steaks, burgers, chicken, Mac and cheese all delish as was the ice cream sundae, which arrived with a cute birthday message.

The Crosby is sophisticated and and lively, and the seating is very spacious and comfortable—a very pleasant space to enter and dine in. The staff is generally attentive and helpful, but the service can be a bit too leasurly. The appetizers and main courses were well-prepared and tasty, but the dessert menu disappointed. They have some unique drinks and a great champagne manu for special occasions. The prices overall were a bit steep.

The food was mediocre at best, and very overpriced- granted, it’s in a hotel so of course it’s overpriced. The gazpacho was boring, the warm train/vegetable bowl was undercooked and watery, and everything else was forgettable. Go to Nomo in the same neighborhood, instead.

I took a friend that i have been bragging about the afternoon tea at the Crosby Hotel for a long time and we were so disappointed when we got the trays... the place is beautiful, the tea and champagne were extraordinary.... when we got to the mini sandwiches, they were dry, old and no taste... the pastries were very small and also nothing special about them, the savory pastries were just ok.... i remember having afternoon tea there almost or over a year ago and the food was fantastic... don’t know what to say for my last experience... i just wish i wouldn’t have disappointed my friend because was his first time there...
I expressed my dissatisfaction to the waiter and she was very good about and responsive... they gave us the rose champagne as complementary drink for which we are grateful.....

I always look forward to visiting the Crosby Street Hotel for lunch and drinks. I love the atmosphere and the food and have always had a wondereful time, whether with friends, family or business associates.
On this particular occasion the service was terrible. I had to flag someone down at each stage of the lunch. - from bringing a menu through ordering through coffee through begging for the check so we could get out of there. Very disappointing and not the impression I wanted to leave with my out of town business guest.
