I was supposed to dine with my sister, but her train was delayed. I decided to go anyway. My food was good, tho not great. my eggs were slightly undercooked, as were my potatoes. Even the fruit in my dessert crisp could have stayed a little longer in the oven. Lynette, the hostess, was absolutely charming. She chatted with me upon seeing I was dining alone. We spoke about the museum and the exhibit. The overall experience was actually made better by my chat with her. Service was excellent. The restaurant was nicely done - very modern and clean. I would dine here again.
A pleasant place to have lunch before or after a museum visit.
Excellent place, food was good although portions were small based on price. Beautiful setting.
This was a wonderful culmination of our visit to the galleries.
Love the Guggenheim's restaurant's new menu! Sunday brunch was delicious - and I enjoy the new makeover. Don't forget this Upper East side gem!
Good neighborhood place, especially for museums. Food and service are good.
Nice service, food was OK and room was nothing special. The thing we noted the most was that portions were TINY, especially in relationship to the prices charged.
It was a real treat to be treated to lunch at The Wright! Highly recommended! Simple menu, great food and plenty of time to see the Art at The Guggenheim!
In a nutshell, the place is worn and looks like it's going to close. You have to ask for bread, salt, pepper, etc. — assuming you can find someone. It's understaffed. The menu is small and quirky and high priced for what it is.
Before the holiday concert at the museum, we enjoyed a lovely, low-key dinner with friends. Service was warm, thoughtful and professional. Food was good, not amazing and a bit pricey but worth it to be in the well-appointed and elegant space. Will return for sure.
The Wright was a good way to break up our visit to the Guggenheim. Food was very good and service excellent. We ordered the prix fix brunch and it was way too much with a drink, appetizer and entree but very tasty. Would go again next time we are in Manhattan.
We enjoyed the meal from start to finish. The food was excellent, the service was great, and the ambiance was just right. All in all, a very pleasant experience before visiting the exhibits at the museum.
Went for brunch and the place was empty. For a museum restaurant, there wasn't a great feel. Felt like a college cafeteria.
Great place for a large group
Been here twice after visiting Guggenheim and always find quality food and good service.
The food and service were excellent, but the overall design and ambiance were poor. This restaurant has no business calling itself after the world-famous architect. The table settings, wall décor and general "look" need serious and imaginative renovation. As set up now, this restaurant does not really belong in the Guggenheim.
Some of the best lunch food and worst service in NYC
A lovely lunch at the Wright for 6. The food was excellent and the service professional and very friendly. Having the opportunity to enjoy such a good meal after touring the museum exhibitions was a really good experience.
What a disappointment! For the $45 prix fixe, we expected much more.
The flat bread and squash soup were good.
The salad, filled with frisee was mediocre.
The 50/50 beef/mushroom burgers were much too small for the bun.
The "shared desserts" were insulting: 6 little pastries, 2 of which were cheese cookies.
We visited NYC for our anniversary and followed a recommendation to have lunch at the Wright. Glad we did!
- Creative atmosphere - designed to fit in to the artsy Gugenheim
- Great wait-staff
- Delicious food - they split up entres for us to try different choices
We enjoyed a delightful lunch at the Wright .
The food was excellent, the service was faultless - thank you Deena.
This is an oasis in the rush of New York and although the menu is limited, there was something to suit everybody's taste in our party of four.
It's always better to have an excellent short menu than an average more extensive one.
Stylish spot for lunch while at the museum. The food was surprisingly good for a museum restaurant and the service was attentive although it was quite busy.
Enjoyed a quiet and delicious lunch before a museum talk. The restaurant wasn't overly crowded so we were able to talk easily and linger over our dessert. Wait staff very accommodating and attentive in just the right amount. Great burger!
I went for NYC restaurant week. After reservation was made I got e-mail saying that the restaurant decided not to participate for restaurant week. I had prefix brunch. Nothing special: omelette, yogurt & berries, & Bellini. The place looks nice, the food was nothing special. A total forgettable experience... Service was good.
Food Fair, service atrocious. Roast chicken dry and over salted. Wait staff brought dessert to our table as we were eating the entree, and stood there waiting!! Maitre de sat at the bar much of the time -- When asked where ladies room was she pointed back to her stand and said 'theres the key - its down the hall.' Restaurant was empty and I am not surprised. Guggenheim deserves better
Great place to have conversation. Beautifully designed. Excellent choices for lunch, brunch, and dinner. Side street entrance means you dont have to go inside the museum.
I think the key thing is the location. Wright is right in the museum and so its a good link for us as we were going to a show after that. Location location location. The service was extraordinary and the food was good. I had the burger and while it was small it was tasty. Wife felt the same way about the pasta. Kind of pricey but this is NYC after all. I would recommend it if you are at the Museum.
Not a huge menu but the food was prepared very well and on a Sunday for lunch it was empty at noon but picked up as we left.
Lovely, quiet and delicious. Great meet up space for friends. Afterwards a stroll through the Guggenheim's collection= awesome.
The Wright is a smallish adjunct to the Guggenheim with a harmonious design. Very convenient and reasonable (by NYC standards) option for a satisfying lunch. It was quite pleasant on this visit, but might be a little noisy if completely filled. Definitely worthwhile.
Our reservation was 11:30 a.m. on Mother's Day-a brunch menu. My friend and I did not choose the fixed price menu ($50) but ordered only from the selections we wanted. My friend ordered the pastry basket and the quiche. I ordered a salad and the quiche. The pastry basket was nondescript. A waitress (not our original one) was kind to take it back to the kitchen to warm the croissant that looked old. The salad I ordered was very tasty-fresh-appropriate dressing amount. Then came the quiche, which was very tasty. However, it was accompanied by a salad on the dinner plate (also very tasty) that was not mentioned on the menu. Had it been, I would not have spent an additional $14 for the salad I ordered. The quiche was very small, perhaps 3 inches in diameter and dry.
Lovely space and great service. Gluten-free options very limited - in fact, the worst of our trip in NYC. Thankfully, my salad with grilled chicken was particularly good. My husband thought his burger was more the size of a meatball compared to the bun, and he would not order it again. Generous pour on the mango margarita! We were there because we were at the museum, but I would not cross the street in NYC just to eat there due to the gf options being quite slim.
The Wright is the restaurant attached to the Guggenheim museum. Situated in a Frank Lloyd Wright designed part, it is obviously a convenient place for lunch when visiting the museum. I went in the evening special hours prior to a Works & Process program. They had a special limited but ample menu, my friend had Salmon, I had Pasta, both very nicely prepared and presented. Full bar and adequate selection of wine. Wonderful service. Highly recommend it, at the moment a best kept secret!!
Open in the evenings for Works and Process events. Excellent service and very good food. A pleasant place to dine while visiting the Guggenheim.
SurprisIngle disappointing experience. The space is lovely, the staff pleasant BUT... We waited well more than half an hour to get our cold 1st courses after ordering, with no bread, even, offered. (And, btw, the restaurant was half empty.) When the beet salad (which 3 of the 4 of us had) arrived, it was very poor. The cheese was microscopic, the beets tasteless with virtually no dressing. When 2nd courses arrived, after another very long wait, the salmon came well done when our friend was specific and adament that it be medium rare, erring on the side of rare. My pasta dish was muddy, no real taste, with the pasta as far from al dente as humanly possible. On the other hand, we had a lovely looong visit with our friends with no one rushing us out!
The Wright is a good pick when visiting the Guggenheim. However, while the service and ambiance are pleasant, the menu is disappointing, with a narrow range of choices.
We were going to the works and process event
"come from away"
the food was unacceptable, service poor as they only had 1 waiter for 25 people.
Terrible experience, would never recommend or go back there are too many other restaurants to have better times.
The food wasn't great, and was certainly not worth the price.
The Beet salad was perfect. We enjoyed the whole experience.
The Wright was a convenient and decent place for lunch while visiting the Guggenheim on a blustery day. I recommend a reservation. Since the museum was crowded that day, having a reservation meant we got seated at a table right away (though in a drafty area near the door). Luckily, once another table was available, we were able to move. The cold draft and crowd were negative factors, but a function of the season and holiday. The service was good and the food was good, if not exceptional.
