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!

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.

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.

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.
