I was in the village and looking for some black boots for fall. My feet were sore and I wandered into Minetta for a cold beer on tap. I was a bit hungry so I ordered the French Dip sandwich and was truly elated. Totally hit the spot.

A buff, but cordial doorman, stands shifting his weight from side to side, while a pretty reservationist with almond shaped eyes shares the aroma of charred beef and uncorked Bordeaux with awaiting patrons. These are images and sensations of Minetta Tavern.

This personified ??classic steakhouse meets neighborhood? tavern by restaurateur virtuoso, Keith McNally, plays for a raucous sophisticated audience and its routine is flawless. Knowledgeable servers dressed penguin-like circulate hurriedly around the black and white checkered floors, a steadfast all-knowing manager, and a cheeky, yet comedic bartender-completes this cast of Minetta players. Like the set of a 40?s film, the stage is a grand ole tavern with faded frescos of a New York now past. Finishing??s of deep brooding oak enhance McNally??s trademark leather banquettes that are romantically positioned beneath littered charactertures of anonymous old neighborhood guys that reflect some of these past iconic patrons-nestled tightly around the room- each booth telling a story.

Co-chefs Lee Hanson and Riad Nasr team together to adequately float the now pride of McNally??s fleet-Balthazar being their maiden voyage together. The menu is a carefully constructed myriad of primeval gratification that instantly makes the diner hankering and hoggish at the mere sight of the menu-although additionally- subtlety teasing the palate with dainty flashes of hors d??oeuvres like; the Asparagus Vinaigrette [$16] with fresh ricotta, pickled honshimeji mushrooms, marcona almonds, lemon and micro shisu; the Dressed Prawns
[ $18 ] with Bibb lettuce.

On the contrast, my table stuck with the gluttonous ??Flintstone- like? bone-marrow that arrived on a stark white plate. Two large shin bones gormandized with gelatinous goodness lay before you. The diner then sparingly spreads onto crusty baguette points and can then be dunked into a shallot confit. Other omnivores that were sitting in the vicinity were gorging on other ??Grillades? menu items, like the Bone-In New York Strip [$45], and the bountiful Dry Aged Cte de Boeuf [$104] for two, with roasted marrow bones and sucrine salad.

Although all of these fore mentioned menu selections are stars in their own right, the crowd pleaser of Minetta, of late, has been the Black Label Burger. The clandestine blend exclusively created by La Frieda for McNally, has been talked about, admired, and unsuccessfully duplicated since its inception. A secret blend of highly selected aged beef cuts is molded into a patty and gently placed on a piping hot flat grill and generously mopped with clarified butter until pinkish red inside. The succulent plump patty is then perched on a soft toasted brioche.The complexity of flavor equals a brilliance and superiority against any other counterpart. At $26, the Minetta Burger may not be eaten on the regular, but should be tried at least once.

Pros: Black Label burger and Bone Marrow

Cons: a little difficult to get in whenever you want

I've gone to Minetta a few times now and have always had a wonderful time. Sure, the hosts look like they are in pain or bothered, but given New York's trend of snooty people at the door, I have become immune to it. I always make a reservation to try to downplay the beating my self-esteem takes from the host stand and so far its worked. We've sat at the bar, dining room and front room and by far our favorite seat was a cozy booth in the front room where you can watch all the entertainment at the door and bar. I love the black label burger, but have also had the regular burger and its pretty yummy too. But the black label burger is in a class of its own. On our most rcent visit we paired it with a salad with goat cheese and a pasta. The food is good but the scene is great, which is really what a trip to Minetta is about. Have a drink and a burger at the bar and it will be a great night!

After hearing all the foodie hype about the Black Label Burger, my husband and I went to Minetta Tavern to try it. Despite the $26 price tag, it did not disappoint and was delicious. The accompanying fries were also superb. Cocktails were unique and tasty (I had the Murray Sour at my waiter's reco). And our waiter was gracious, friendly and very attentive.

Upon leaving, we explained to the hostess that we would like a menu to take home. Sure she said, and she went to check with the Maitre D'. While she was away, we noticed the Jerry Seinfeld was in the reservation book--due to arrive at any moment. The hostess hurried back and informed us the Maitre D' said no and that we should print one out online.

We explained that we have collected only a few menus from memorable meals framed in our dining room and that we'd be honored to add Minetta Tavern to our collection.

Again, she said no, sorry, and that we should go print one ourselves off of their website.

Come on! I guess Minetta Tavern will not be joining Per Se and Taillevent on my dining room wall. It was an ungracious end to an otherwise enjoyable evening.

I tried to make a reservation after reading this article entitled "The Minetta Tavern Burger Review."

I went to their website, saw they took reservations 30 days in advance and called. "Tommy" answered and nastily advised they were only taking reservations 2 weeks in advance. I pushed up my date and he gave me a few times, none of which worked for me. Halfway through my sentance of thank you but those dont work...do you have X date available, he hung up on me.

Needless to say, I have had amazing burgers in the city with great service. There is no need to ever frequent this establishment.

Cons: Attitude of the Staff

Food was ok, with a decent non-standard selection, particularly the specials and mixed drinks. What was crappy was being rushed out by the maitre d RIGHT after we signed our large bill ("I'm sorry, but we have a lot of people waiting" --> translation: "leave"). That was completely classless. I understand the place is popular, but that's no way to treat customers who just spent a small fortune. If you must, try it later, but nothing like spoiling a decent night with that ending...

DO NOT GO HERE.

My husband got the Black Label Burger, Medium Rare, and was vomiting all night from food poisoning. And it was his birthday! He had been looking forward to this dinner for a month.

When we called, ARNOLD, the manager, was completely unhelpful. Not to mention he never called back when he said he would.

He didn't even offer to refund our burger. We had a very large bill for the night, it was my husband's birthday, and Minetta Tavern didn't even have the decency to refund the price of the burger which made him vomit all night. They didn't offer anything. In fact, they weren't even that apologetic, because "they serve 40 of these burgers a night."

The place is waaaay over rated.

Both of us will never go back again.

We love going out in NYC for dinner and have never once posted a negative review on a website since we know restaurants have their good and bad nights. This is our first negative review because we feel so strongly people need to know how over rated this place is and unhelpful the management is.

Minetta is great if you are looking for a bar with a lot of scotch options! The bartenders are incredibly professional, personable, and make the experience a very pleasant one.

Made a res 1 mo. ago. Showed up tonight w/ husband and were told we weren't on the list. I made the hostess look through her list and found my name on the "unconfirmed list." I got a new phone # 3 days ago and therefore did not receive that call. There was NO mention that there would be a conf. when I made the res. I know that for a fact b/c I am anal and write everything down - would've made note of that. Hostess said "no tables, wait 30 min." OK, wait 30 min, still no table. Asked for manager & woman whom I thought was hostess claimed to be the maitre'd and said "physically there are no tables. We will call you as soon as something comes up. maybe 30 min" We left. Guess what? It's 7:40 and I have not received that "call." Furious. Husband and I worked our schedules around for this. Then read this article on ny eater re: owner McNally (July 1, 2009) about how no one is ever turned down. Too bad McNally wasn't there himself.

Pros: Best Burgers , Great Drinks, Phenominal desserts

Cons: none

why not just close it to the public and make it a private club for friends and celebrities? if that is all you want in the restaurant, then please stop insulting the public by making people call for reservations that don't even exist. that's right, they don't even take sat. night reservations for those not famous enough to know the code word to get in. Ridiculous. maybe if us common folk just stopped going to any McNally restaurant, they would ge tthe idea.

I have had dinner at Minetta several times at the bar and it was always a great experience. I especially praise the bartenders. However my last visit was quite Kafka-esque and dated - as in back to the civil rights era. We were two "women of a certain age" having a few drinks and dinner at the bar early in the evening. After the third drink, we ordered another and waited ...a very long time. Then the bartender informed us that we were "cut off". Apparently, the source was the two managers. My companion questioned both and was not given a reason. She then asked to speak to Keith McNally. He came out of the restaurant, already fuming and shouted that it was his restaurant and he could decide if 3 drinks is enough. I can only assume that had we been young model type females or men of our age or black, this would not have happened. It's shameful in this age.

My wife and a friend went to Minettas on Saturday night and had a great time. I entertained our daughter and her boyfriend on Sunday, 15th, at Morandi. We left and my wife suggested that we mosie over to Minettas. We arrived at 4:30 and saw someone being let out the door and the door being locked behind him.. We went over to the crepe place across the street and waited. At 5:10 we, and several other people tried to gain access only to find the door still locked. Posted on the menu were the hours......Brunch 12:00 to 4:00 and open at 5:00PM. What gives? This is supposed to be another of the McNally's list of hot spots. I work in the restaurant biz and find that in these hard times you can't off or discourage potential biz.

Unfortunately, this old-timer??a speakeasy during Prohibition and for many years home for poets and writers??is closed. But for years is charmed me and many others, with its time-warp dcor, featuring murals of MacDougal Street's Bohemian past along with antique photos and yellowing celebrity caricatures. Authentic New York accents emanate from the wistful locals at the bar in the front room, while the wood-paneled dining room attracts tourists, celebrating groups, and the occasional celebrity regulars. And the food was good to. Oh well...

The Minetta is an old friend. It doesn't change, but it gets a little more frayed around the edge. Just like the waiters. Nice and comfy in the back dining room -- they set up with starched tableclothes and make you feel welcome and don't push you. Wine list great. Beers are good too. Good pasta, just nothing exciting. You can spend 3 or 4 hours here, and emerge into the night of the village as if you've come back from another era. Much better than Chumleys or that horrible white horse tavern.

If you want a very classic Italian-American meal (focus on the pasta, seafood and the veal), this is the place to go. Though it's been through a few owners, the Minetta Tavern is still a home away from home. The key to this place for me is that it is incredibly versatile--if you're with a date, it's perfect. If you're with a group, it's perfect. And even if it's just you, you can post up at the bar and have a great meal. The service is unparalleled, and if there are any issues just ask for Taka (the owner/operator) and he will take care of you! Despite it's location in the threshold to the drop-down-drunk part of Greenwich Village, it's a place you can take your significant other, business associate or family member and they will leave with a great impression of the restaurant and at NYC service as a whole!

I lived in New york most of my life and frequented this restaurant over the years since the 1950's. I now live in the south and while visiting NY I went to my ol standby and was disappointed. The atmosphere was the same, the food tasted good, but for what I got I think it was over priced. I had pasta with sausage and while the taste was there I had trouble locating more than two very small pieces of sausage. Pasta and greens are cheap it would need more sausage to justify the price.

Although it looks a little shabby on the outside Minetta Tavern houses one of the best Italian menus in the city. The staff is very kind and the homemade ravioli is to die for. Everything on the dessert cart is amazing. I make it a point to go at least once a month. On Valentine's Day the host gave lady patrons a red rose! Just a wonderful place.

I loved this place. I am origanally from Jersey and now reside in Denver. My sister Peggy and brother-in-law John took me here in December '03. They are regulars here. Everything was awesome for the time we walked in the door. The owner made me feel like we had known each other for years. The food,wine and atmosphere was wonderful. I ended the evening with a glass of Sambuca w/ a coffee bean. PERFECT. Thank you John and Peggy. Tink

My friend surprised me by taking me here to eat. We had wonderful wines, the appetizer of mussels was excellent and the entree was magnificent. It's a very cozy and friendly place and you don't feel crowded.

We spent a little money but it was well worth it. Will definately be eating at Minetta again soon!
