Delicious food and lovely menu. Very good service.
The food was fine but slightly insipid. The service was lovely and the venue was comfortable and pleasant. For the price the food really should be better. The rolls that came with the burrata were not a good match for the cheese, they were too soft and too sweet, making the dish lack nuance and texture. I wanted to like it better because it really is a pretty place and I love the museum. Even so, for the convenience and the ambience, I would not rule it out when visiting the museum.
Food was fine, if not inspired. Service was ok, friendly if a little slow. At bit on the pricey side for what was on offer.
I went with a group of seven people. Everyone loved their food and the staff could not have been more helpful. Service was also very efficient and timely. What a pleasant lunch!
Wonderful restaurant-comfortable-nice relaxing atmosphere. Food was excellent
Waitress was welcoming and happy Mushroom pot pie was very good
Food was terrible
All was very good except for the small worm in the salad. The meal was then complementary, but ....
Always lovely here. Came for my birthday brunch with family. The service was good but a bit too attentive, even. Food is nice with good options for most everyone. Will go back again.
Nice place to have a meal before taking in the art.
Good food, pleasant room--but very noisy if full of diners. Excellent service.
The right place for lunch before going into the Guggenheim Museum is Wright’s. Named for the famous architect, the food and service was museum quality. The parsnip soup was hot and creamy and garnished with diced apple and pomegranate seeds. Yum. For lunch I had the 50/50 burger, half meat and half mushrooms—so much umami. Served with fingerlings, the “museum” version of the French fry. My husband had the butternut squash raviolis. They came with large arcs of roasted squash and shavings of cheese. So good.
Sadly, they didn’t have my drink of choice, Dewars, at the bar, so I ordered a glass of wine. Despite the busy lunch rush, our server Deena scoured the upstairs stockroom and procured a bottle to pour me a sorry-for-the-disappointment shot. Not necessary, but so memorable and hospitable. This was definitely the “Wright” way to start our mini vaca in NYC.
Service was really poor. Staff needs training on order taking and wine service
For what it is, essentially a place to sit down, relax and dine while visiting the museum, The Wright is wonderful. Because the reviews are mixed, I was hesitant to suggest the restaurant to an out of town friend with whom I'd planned a visit to the Guggenheim. As it turned out, The Wright was the perfect spot to meet and to have lunch while we caught up. We both agreed, the food--the mushroom pot pie and the quinoa bowl--and the service were excellent. As for the ambiance, the space was in keeping with the modernity of the Guggenheim itself.
Great resource when you at immersed in a Guggenheim Museum exhibit and need to break for lunch. Creative menu and atmosphere, not too pricey and great service. I definitely recommend it and would visit again!
Unfortunately there were a huge number of children, perhaps 30 or more loud and quite boisterous. I realize we should not have stayed, but I had a special out of town guest and we had looked forward to it. I realize this was an anomaly but wondered if this was an isolated instance or regular thing. We tried to make the best of it, but the adult tables all around us were a bit aghast.
For a James Beard award winning restaurant we expected a lot more. Our reservation was for 12 noon, thirty minutes after the restaurant opened. The floor was dirty, only three tables were occupied and the service was slow. The restaurant is small, crowded and no view of the surrounding Central Park area. In NYC there are far better choices for lunch!
Great place to relax and enjoy a meal after the museum
We had a lovely time on a Saturday afternoon. Our server did not rush us. The space is bright & quiet. I enjoyed the ravioli & wonderful house salad!
Salad was tasty but very skimpy and I’m a small eater. But it was still fine and very convenient if you’re visiting the museum.
Very tasty food. We really appreciated the excellent vegetarian choices. Service was pleasant, helpful and thankfully non-intrusive.
I’d recommend this restaurant for convenience on a museum outing and for vegetarian options. It is small and does not have much ambience. I got the Quinoa bowl, and found it unappealing. I generally love quinoa bowls. My friend seemed to like hers. Another friend got the mushroom pot pie, which looked like a better option. Wine portions are small, and they game it by offering different size pours..
The burger was delicious, but small if it were for a man, but we two women found the size ok so we had room to share a dessert. Chocolate cake also excellent.
Waitress was very accommodating & good at her job so we made sure by our tip that she knew we appreciated her aside from us telling her she did a good job.
Good wine selection
Service very good
I liked the quiet
The food was good but skimpy. For a $26 Restaurant Weeks prix fixe lunch, I got a bowl of soup and one shirred egg. You couldn't shir a couple of eggs maybe for $26? Both dishes were excellent, however--no complaints about flavor or originality or presentation.
id' eaten there several times before - food not nearly as good as before -
generally very satisfied,
ravioli portion very small
Food was especially good with creative ingredients to what could have been a “run of the mill” meal. Never been before. Went with a friend at recommendation of another friend. Was apprehensive about suggesting unknown place. It was a wonderful and a beautiful setting.
It looks and feels a bit like a cafeteria and is priced like a special occasion spot. Since it was restaurant week, the price was right. But the regular prices on the menu are too high for what you get.
We had a superb meal. It’s not inexpensive but well worth the splurge! The parsnip soup with apple compote was delicious and typical of the unique (and delicious) flavor combinations that make this worth a trip.
Me and two friends had an enlightening tour with the curator of the Hilma af Klint exhibit and then a delicious lunch at the Write.
Perfect place to eat if you are attending an exhibition at the museum.
Wait staff were excellent and the decor is lovely.
I think the Wright could be a lot better than this. The ambience and furniture were cafeteria style although the prices were more upscale. The entrance to restaurant, connected to museum, was shabby and not clean. The food was palatable, but really not fabulous. We had the chicken salad, mushroom pot pie, and kohlrabi fritter to start - fritter was soggy, not crisp. Entrees were okay, but there are plenty of nearby restaurants where you will get better food, ambience and similar prices.
The portions are remarkably small and way overpriced. The atmosphere is very cafeteria-like so the price point of the menu items doesn't align. The food's ok and the service was fine, but I would not go back given the price - not worth it.
The food and the services were remarkably good, and what a wonderful nourishing meal after spending a few hours in the museum. We will be back!
Disgusting, ugly, overpriced!! I’m a member of the museum & I will never go again!
The Wright is a great choice if you are doing something at the Guggenheim. If not, there are terrific eateries a block away. Frequent them.
Quality has gone down
We waited 45 minutes for our order - which was only deserts. We watched other families come and go that had been in the same show as us. Restaurant was cleared by the time we finally got served and we’d been the first family to walk in after the performance. Then they brought the make your own cupcakes out to only 2 of our 3 kids. My 3-year old had to wait an additional ten minutes for his - near tears. What a drag. Spent an hour there with lousy service.
