The Morgan Dining Room
My daughter and I had a great Sunday brunch in the Morgan Dining Room on a cold Sunday afternoon. The atmosphere was peaceful and quiet, and, unlike some other restaurants, we could easily hear each other and talk together. I ordered French toast followed by cinnamon gelato--both delicious. The service was considerate and unobtrusive. I hope to return soon.
Loved the Frankenstein tea - great idea - and we had two additional lunches!
Also we sat there happily for quite a while and the service was wonderful !
We had a very nice, delicious lunch in a beautiful space, attentive service. Staff very good at keeping a relaxed atmosphere and also meeting our fairly quick departure time for a matinee. Highly recommend!
For a museum restaurant, one of the best. The seating is a bit tight, but other than that, everything else went well. The food was nicely presented and very good. My wife had a glass of prosecco and I had a generous glass of red wine. DIdn't manage dessert but it was a good selection, including after dinner drinks if you desired. Service was attentive but the room could probably use a third server to keep things moving. Portions and prices were akin to a fine-dining restaurant, so if all you're after is a more "normal" luncheon menu, stick with the cafe seating area. Same kitchen, so everything should be just as good.
We went to the Morgan to have lunch with friends. We each had salads and soup, and while tasty the portions were ridiculously small given the prices. I would not return.
Great lunch! Excellent service, delicious food, and pleasant ambience. Noise level low to moderate, which made extended serious conversation possible. Wish I lived close enough to come often.
Lovely food with good ambience! Sadly we were rushed out because they had booked our table for another party at 1.30pm—but overall great experience!
They were severely understaffed. Every table was dirty and had not been cleared. Bizarre.
Nice place with a friendly staff. Good food in a quiet environment. Will definitely be going back!
Contemporary ambiance, tables with place mats, fireplace, in a wonderful location in the gorgeous Morgan Library and Museum. Good food, reasonable prices and a lovely place for lunch
My egg/ lobster omelette was terrible. It was tough to chew and not tasty.
VERY small portions
The Morgan Dining Room is an amazing place to visit! The food was very good, and my drink was well worth the price - and the service was impeccable and topnotch! All in all we had a very pleasant visit.
Great atmosphere; wonderful waiter, and fabulous food.
Like a secret gem.
always a classy place for a business lunch. The food is good...the waiters could be a bit more attentive
Brunch on a previous occasion was excellent. Today's lunch with a business client was very disappointing. The pasta special was tasteless and the chunks of prosciutto were hard to chew and full of fat. My client's salad was primarily lettuce and a few small shrimp.
I dined for lunch. Food was delicious - I had roasted chicken & my guest had the Branzini. This is always a great place to have a quick business lunch if time is an issue. However, I was disappointed as I requested in my reservation that it was a business lunch & typically I am seated at a table that is off to the side. We were seated tightly between two ‘2 Tops’ & then after we settled in with our menus we were asked to move one table to the right. That put us right on another2 top that had patrons at it & then the tables to our left with set for a large group. This made it difficult to talk with my guest due to noise level & proximity of others dining
The Morgan Dining Room is my favorite place to go for an elegant lunch in Manhattan.
Perfect place for a leisurely, elegant lunch with friends. The meal was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was excellent. I highly recommend it.
My best friend and I meet every year at the Morgan for a great lunch where we can sit for 2 hours. Plus, there is always an interesting exhibit to enjoy afterwards.
We had the Afternoon Tea, which was a good deal overall. Just wished that it came with real tea sandwiches vs getting savory bites that seemed more appropriate as appetizers.
We enjoyed our lunch in this tastefully decorated and intimate dining room. A nice place for lunch or brunch with interesting menu selections. We enjoyed our choices - the shrimp salad and the salmon tartines. The chocolate cake was disappointing, however. It was dry and was served without any sauce or ice cream, which it needed.
Service was very good at the start but should have been more attentive later on.
Lovely space. Food was original without being trendy. Waitstaff was efficient and polite. Kudos to the entire team. Hint: it was not crowded the day we were there but you never know, so make a reservation! It’s not a large room.
We enjoyed our visit and plan to return.
Great place for mid town lunch and especially with out of town guests
Kind, attentive, but not intrusive service. Lovely atmosphere, where you can actually have a conversation!! Food was delicious.
Very beautiful room. Nice service. Cocktails were only OK and food portions rather small, but tasty. Probably best for brunch or light lunch.
Great location with good food and atmosphere. A regular place in NY
Lovely atmosphere in the dining room. Food and service excellent. Unique location inside the Morgan Library.
Our waiter was delightful. He made great recommendations and made us feel welcomed and comfortable. He recognized that we were there to catch up and did everything to make that possible. He refreshed beverages and checked in to see if we needed anything else periodically. He also took our photo without prompting.
We were very disappointed - two of us had the shrimp salad and it was very disappointing. There were 3 or 4 tiny shrimp that were tasteless. The desserts too were disappointing. The only good part of the meal was the wine and the bread.
Next time we will try the cafe.
My birthday luncheon with friends...
The portions were the smallest! Especially the chicken. Supposedly homemade cookies. I don’t think so!! Very disappointing
Whenever I go to the museum I lunch in the Morgan’s dining room. It is elegant and comfortable. The food is always high class and service 1st rate. This time the exhibits were magnificent.
I enjoyed the Summer Menu for restaurant week. I ate the fish entree with cannelli beans and arugula. The portions were small but quite tasty. I enjoyed the country bread and had chocolate gelato for dessert. The waiter was pleasant. I had eaten at the cafe but enjoyed eating in the dining room.
The food and ambiance were quite good. Service, sadly, was quite slow. We were not waited on for nearly a half hour after we were seated, despite several inquiries.
We often visit Manhattan and are members of the Morgan Library. We always reserve a table for 1:00 after enjoying the wonderful special exhibits and visiting Morgan's incredible library room. Service is perfect, the chef is extremely creative, the food is terrific and the ambiance is also perfect. Chef's daily specials offer a wide range of options including vegetarian selections. Sensibly selected and priced wine list as well. Highly recommend this fine restaurant.
I’ve been here severla times before and the food and drink has always been of incredible quality. I was a little let down on my latest visit. Nothing was exceptional and my dish was less than inspired. For the price I expect very fresh and delicious food with impeccable and attentive service. It was just ok and I regretted choosing it to celebrate a special occasion this time around.
I was so excited to have lunch at JP house. It was perfectly elegant. The food was very good the service attentive and eating with a white starched tablecloth is probably way JP also ate every day. I will definitely go back.
This is a lovely place to meet a friend. It is elegant, quiet, and tasteful. The menu is extensive enough for anyone, but not overwhelming. The service is inobtrusive but courteous. The location is perfect, and before/after, one can explore the library and museum. This is my go-to place for lunches with special friends.
My family and I were there for Fathers Day Brunch. We had a wonderful time. The food was delicious, and the service was attentive, the waiter was lovely to my husband--the Dad. We had such a nice time. My son and his girlfriend both 26 thought it was great. So thanks for a home run celebration. We will be back !!
