My favorite restaurant for special occasions. Excellent service and delicious food. I have been here several times and I am never disappointed. In a city with 20,000 restaurants, for me this one stands apart.

Still one of the leading restaurants in New York. Gramercy Tavern never fails to impress me. Great for client dinners.

The food here is great, the atmosphere is nice, but every time I've been here, the service has been unfriendly. It's such an anomoly. Aren't these the same people that own 11 Madison Park, Tabla and Union Sq Cafe? All those restaurants have fabulous service. I don't get why Gramercy Tavern has to be a bit stuck up. I still go there though - the food is great!

My favorite restaurant in 2001 and it still is my favorite resturant. Hadn't been here in 6 yrs, but upon visiting NY again, I just had to come here. The food, service, ambiance, remains excellent,?

The Gramercy Tavern is a landmark on 20th street. The elegant dinning room and exception cuisine have made it a favorite of mine for many years. The warmly lighting room and quite interior hides the fact that this is one of the busiest restaurants in New York. It is important that this decadence comes at a price but it is well worth it

Pros: a quiet area with mouthwatering food and intimate setting.

Cons: The high price

Excellent food and the highest of service standards without the stuffy formal atmosphere of other high end restaurants. Very relaxed setting. Would recommend anytime for special occasion lunches. Loved the baby beets with spiced nuts and the mushroom lasagna. Will definitely try to come back soon.

Simply said, "THIS IS MY FAVORITE RESTAURANT IN NEW YORK." Wow. The decor is incredibly beautiful. There are always fresh flowers. The bar is beautiful. The ceilings are high and the colors put you at rest. The service....it is the best in New York City. The food is fantastic. The drinks are terrific.

You can dine in the dining room or in the bar area. They have two different menus...depending of where you sit. I like the bar area for lunch and the dining room for dinner.

I take my daughter to Gramercy Tavern every year for her birthday because I know it is special. Try it....you will see. Adam Lipson

I have had many excellent meals around the world but I have yet to see another restaurant that combines excellent food and service in an elegant setting with a low key, comfortable atmosphere the way Gramercy Tavern does. I also think the wine list is top notch.

Pros: Excellent food and service

Seriously. This was one of my favorite dining experiences worldwide. I think because I like good food but not stuffy places, this was a perfect match for me. We sat in the front room within the buzz of the lively bar scene and enjoyed 4 courses all of which were delicious. Our server couldn't have been more down to earth and friendly even bringing a complimentary "desert bite" for me when my friend ordered and I didn't. Kudos to Danny Meyer for creating restaurants with great food without the "snobbery"!

Pros: Celery Root Soup, Smoked Trout, Seabass and Perfect Service

Cons: It's 2000 miles from my house!

We ate in the more casual dining room and found it to be a really pleasant space to eat. The bar is also located in the same space so it added some liveliness to the place. The more formal dining area is exquisitely decorated but seemed a little too dry for me. Tried the pork loin special. Beautifully cooked and moist. A really nice place to try. Lives up to its reputation. Prices are a little higher than I would have liked, but is a nice place to treat yourself or someone special.

The reservation experience is quite hostile, especially when a woman calls to re confirm and sounds like she is scolding.
Our mojitos were mostly ice
what is called steak and pork has a lot of fat.
Not a good pastry chef.
We were so disappointed and it cost so much money!
From now on I am cooking.

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and while we waited over an hour for a table the meal was memorable - we got a lot of food becuase there were a lot of things we wanted to try and it was worth every penny - i liked the pastrami, me lady liked the jerusalem artichoke soup - We got 3 desserts for 2 people and i have to point out that the tapioca pudding rocked - the waitress was super nice and they helped make the meal really special for my D's bday - At the end of the day thats what it was all about -

I'm giving it 4 stars since people only seem to be disappointed when they get hyped up about a place and inevitably are bummed out afterwards. You shouldn't be if you're just looking for a good night out - it's unpretentious, you are filled up to the gills for the amount you pay and its finger licking good, the service is great and the atmosphere can be loud but you know, I like it that way rather than feeling like the wait staff is hovering over you and watching your every move compared to other high-quality restaurants.

Went here with my boyfriend and his father. It was absolutely delicious. The service was impeccable. The ambience was elegant if not somehow oddly casual. It must have been the large steel stars on the wall, reminded me of Texas. If I could afford it, I'd go back again. If you're looking for an overall wonderful dining experience, you won't go wrong here. And I recommend the Pineapple Upside Down dessert.

I am in love with Gramercy Tavern. I've been there 2 times and I can't get enough. It's very hard to get a prime res but worth the effort. Do what you must! All staff starting at the front desk make you feel like a very special VIP - I know no other restaurant that does that. The ambience is exceptionally warm, inviting, and relaxing. The food is among the best I've ever had anywhere in the world and I've tried it all. The service is a dream, they don't miss a beat, they read your mind and know what you need and deliver it smoothly, quietly, perfectly. We have done both the 3 course prixe fixe and the 7 course tasting menu, both are excellent. We had paired wines with the 7 course which made it very special. The house cocktails are not to be missed - the peach basil fizz is a delicious original. If I had 1 itsy bitsy complaint it's that the people who deliver the dishes don't always speak clearly enough, so if you're doing a tasting you might notice it. Otherwise, I would describe this place as what all other restaurants should aspire to. Danny Meyer is doing things right. I feel so happy and relaxed when I eat here due to the magical chemistry of all the elements coming together seamlessly. Did I mention the food? Spectacular. Even the bathrooms merit praise, they are cozy, elegant, and offer privacy. The faint smell of the wood burning oven fills the dining room and makes you feel you are at a resort somewhere in the mountains. It is expensive but worth every cent. When the meal is done they give you a little bakery item to take home and enjoy the next morning. I always feel like I want to stay forever when I'm there! Gramercy Tavern is an enduring NY icon that never wears out or misses a step.

Have been to Gramercy a few times, and every time I am blown away by everything, from the mind-blowing food to the incredibly smooth service. I've even dined at the bar and had the same kind of service as in the dining room - including a free appetizer just from having a conversation and not being able to decide on one thing. have spent unbelievable amounts of money here but don't regret a cent. The vegetable tasting menu is, in my opinion, the best option on the menu, I order it every time - Michael Anthony knows his veggies. Just wish they'd hurry up and change their menu so we can try some new things after 5 months...I'm impatient for more new masterpieces :)

If you haven't tried this NYC institution, I feel bad for you. Though the main dining room can be tricky to get rteservations, the Tavern is the best place to wander late afternoon...any day really. Awesome food, ridiculously careful and comfy service, and great martinis. Sit at the bar, eat the meatball, and watch them all work...Poetry in motion.

I come to NYC every 6 weeks or so and when I do, my friend loves for me to get totally rocked out and outrageously dressed in full leather to take me out to dinner. We like to do more than just fill our gullets or be "seen", we like to make it an event because we love food and see it as an adventure. We have gone to the Gramercy Tavern several times now because while we have tried a lot of other nice places, Gramercy is the one place where we are always treated with grace, a welcoming smile, and perfect food and service. The staff seems to really appreciate people who appreciate the food and their efforts to take it from just a meal to a real experience. The sommelier has always chosen the perfect wines for every course and we always feel we can put our taste buds in their skilled hands. The last time I was there I had a mouthwatering pork with this incredible parsley sauce and the duck terrine was amazing and had a nice, rustic texture peppered with pistachios. I can't stop thinking about it. My favorite dessert is the coconut tapioca with cilantro syrup and I almost always order it if it is on the menu. I think the best part of it besides the food and wine is that we always are made to feel at home there. It's elegant but cozy. They really seem to get the whole concept that return guests are what keep you in business and return we have, and always will!

My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary and WOW talk about attention to detail our server Mathew was awesome. He noticed everything, my boyfriend spilled some wine on me and like superman he showed up with club soda and salt. I really didn't enjoy the duck, and i didnt like the lobster, Mathew noticed and instead I try something else. He recommended a black pasta with seafood, yummy. The desert was good but Mathew was the highlight. I think the food is for a more sophisticated pallet.

i went here for my 21st birthday and the food was amazing and the cocktails delicious--the cranberry daiquiri especially. the service was outstanding as well; the hostess told the kitchen it was my birthday and they brought out a chocolate brownie sundae with "happy 21st birthday" written across the plate. perfect night out!

This review is long overdue~ Gramercy Tavern is my favorite restaurant in NYC. The service, ambience, food...everything is great. I've been here on numerous occasions and we always get the tasting menu (changes with season). On one occasion, the waiter was concerned because I didn't even eat half of the second course and offered to exchange it for something else. This is something I rarely find in ANY restaurant. His attention to detail and genuine concern for us to have a wonderful night was just simply....amazing. This restaurant definitely lives up to its standards!

Had a wonderful experience here. The Danny Meyer service reputation is certainly well deserved; I think "Good evening" and "welcome" were said to us by five different people on the 10 second walk from the hostess to our table. Service was always there as soon as you needed it but out of your way when you weren't. Elegant and warm inside without being pretentious, this exemplifies Grammercy's biggest strength; a graceful, upscale restaurant that retains soul. The food was overall fantastic: smoked trout tasted like PERFECTION, sweet and buttery and simply melted in your mouth, veal was similarly exquisite. Quail and dessert were a bit disappointing, but they couldn't overshadow the high points. Had two fantastic bottles of wine for about 80 each, very reasonable prices for the quality. Given a pastry at the end of the night to bring home and eat for breakfast the next morning to top it all off. It is extraordinarily rare, especially in NYC, to have a dining experience where you feel fully taken care of and truly fulfilled. Grammercy is one of them.

There were 6 of us and when I called for last minute reservations I was politely told that there was nothing available in the dining room but we could take our chances in the tavern. Caveat: only one table in the tavern could seat 6, so we were taking a big chance. So instead of heading there on Sat, we sauntered in on Sunday at about noon (I might mention that it was snowing outside, so the crowds may have decided to stay home), and were immediately seated at above mentioned table. The restaurant was lovely, with beautiful Christmas decorations of fresh arrangements and hanging baskets of ribbons and vine and nuts...so rustic and welcoming. The cocktail menu was nice, prices at $12 per and I ordered the Gin-ginger something...fresh ginger and gin with some soda...tasty and subtle. We ordered from the wine list, a very reasonable red blend from Spain and it was very nice...fruit forward, as they say! The winelist was actually reasonable, with many bottles under $60. Ours was $28!!
The food was really good, wonderfully presented and the service was perfect. I ahd the Our waitress brought me the wine label on a beautiful card from the restaurant (remember, it was only $28!) and took our picture in front of the main Christmas decoration...corny, I know, but it was my birthday weekend. I had the "risotto" appetizer and stuffed meatball entre...all yummy.
I recommend the Gramercy Tavern on the ambinace alone, food, service a close second. Price was average...$68 apiece before tip with wine and a drink.

My fiance and I celebrated our last weekend dinner together before our wedding at Grammercy Tavern. We decided to celebrate the date last minute, so we called Grammercy Tavern and asked if we could make a last minute reservation based on a cancellation. Luckily, there was a 10 PM dining room reservation available. When we got to the restaurant, we were seated promptly, and we enjoyed a sumptious meal with excellent service. At the end of the meal, we received a complimentary desert with "Congratulations" written in chocolate across the plate. It was a very nice and thoughtful touch. The only drawback was that the meal was expensive. The 3 course menu is $82. There is also a bar area with a much less expensive menu. It seems that reservations should be made for that area too, as it was very crowded there. However, we really enjoyed the privacy and relaxing ambience of the dining room and would recommend splurging for the 3 course menu.

I was visiting NY and the gramercy tavern was one restaurant that everyone kept recommending, I thought there'd be no way, on such short notice that I'd be able to get a reservation. I was in NY for a week and was very flexible since i was looki ng to eat out every night. Well, i got a 9:30 for a friday, and was told that they had open resv for anything during the week at either 5:30 or 9:30. Since I'm on westcoast time, I didn't mind a later dinner.The food was exceptional! My husband, and son decided to do the summer tasting menu. $98. per person. it was fresh, creative, and elegant. Check out the menu on their website. I hate large portions, or small portions that are too rich that by the time you get to the third course you're feeling too full. This tasting menu was perfect. The reason I like to eat out is so that I can eat things that I can't make myself or would even want to take the time finding each special ingredient. Their menu is just that. Coconut tapioca, w cilantro puree, or smoked trout over fava bean puree, veal w morrell mushrooms..each course was just so well orchestrated! lots of extra treats from the chef are also thrown in during dessert! Service was great! Attentive and did not skip beat! Loved this place. I'd come back again on my next trip, but wouldn't go twice in one....remember don't get discouraged about getting a resv. It wasn't that hard...and it is a great place.

I came here for lunch. I have heard this place referred to as the best restaurant in New York. I'll be honest, I would not rank it that high, but I will say that it is very good. The food was tasty and with a touch of flair. I had the mushroom risotto appetizer, and the streak and ravioli entree. The steak was tender and perfectly done. The risotto was a bit unusual but quite tasty. Another item to note is the grape juice. The restaurant offers several kind of juice from wine grapes (i.e. pinot noir and gewurztraminer). Still, the most memorable aspect of the meal here is the service. The server quickly remembered people's preferences and was extremely knowledgeable about the food. Overall, the food here is not quite great enough to make this the best restaurant in the world, but it is worth a visit, especially because the prices are reasonable.

Im shocked that people think it is outrageous to have to make reservations! Of course you do! Yes, you have to make reservations in advance. (i made mine 1 month in advance) Yes, sometimes they can be hard to get. HOWEVER, this is true for many great things in NYC. And Gramercy is that, GREAT. My boyfriend and I went to celebrate my graduation from law school and his bday. It was perfection. The service was superb, the food was amazing, everything was fantastic. It is definately pricey (this was a big splurge for us) but I tell you now that it was worth it. I have been to many high end restaraunts in the city and this was by far and away the best meal I have had in NYC. If you are able to get reservations and have the money to spend, there is not a better place to spend it. Period.

My boyfriend and I called to make reservations but they told us it was a walk-in basis. Upon arriving to the restaurant, they had told us there were two separate sections, the classy dining in the back, and the casual in the front. We wanted to dine in the classy area with a romantic setting in the back but they told us reservations had to be booked 28 days in advance. They could have informed us of this over the phone yet they failed to mention any of it. What bothered us most was that the host gave us two menus, one for the classy area, one for the casual front dining area. We asked if we could order from the formal menu for the classy area even though we couldn?t sit in that section and he told us that it would be possible but it would be up to our server. What happened was, we ended up waiting an hour and forty-five minutes for the ?casual? dining section and when the server came to our attention, she told us we couldn?t order from the so called ?classy? menu. It was very disappointing that they gave us erroneous information not only at the front hostess counter, but they also failed to mention anything over the phone. We ended up leaving after we were told we couldn?t order from specific menus and such because the casual menu did not have much to offer. The casual menu seemed to only have appetizer-like entrees and the classy menu had the good stuff, such as lamb, steak, etc. I was highly frustrated that they could not accommodate our needs, had such poor service, and were horrible in the manner in giving us correct information. The whole 28 day book in advance thing was also pretty ridiculous. I was very upset and would never recommend such a horrible restaurant to anyone. It is completely overrated and not worth the money OR the wait!

Pros: Its great if you book it 2 months in advance

Our party of six exited the theatre and drove to this 20th Street Landmark. We were told that this past February the "new" chief (formerly from Blue Hill) started to put his own touches on the menu...we were not disappointed. The first course of sweetbreads melts in your mouth. The smoked lobster entree was incredible, and the sturgeon and roasted venison were note worthy. During the course of our meal the restaurant filled to capacity but there was never a drop off in service. Mid-way through the meal two friends stopped by our table to say hello. The waitress managed to squeeze in two additional chairs, so that our friends could join us for a mid-meal cocktail...while we were served our main course. Many other establishments would not have been so accommidating. An absolutely lovely dining experience.

As a peripatic San Franciscan used to terrific dining experiences, Gramercy Tavern has been at the top of my list of NYC restaurants for several years. Service has always been outstanding; food sublime. However, making a reservation these days is like trying to get a private audience with the Pope. Come on folks, it's a restaurant, not the Vatican. Lose the attitude. What's happened?

I took my fiance here last night for his birthday and we were both delighted. We each had the three course menu. (Me: tuna tartare, poached halibut, cheese plate; Him: broccoli soup, beef short ribs, cheesecake.) Everything was delicious and the wine list had choices at all price points - we had a very reasonably priced bottle and loved it. The service was nearly perfect. Ranks with Babbo as one of the best dinners I have had in New York. Highly recommended.

One of my favorite restaurants in NYC...an old one but a good one, always. The tasting menu was incredible and the flavors were diverse but extremely coherent. My boyfriend and I chose this spot for a date and not only was the food perfect, but so was the service and the atmosphere. I have been here many times and my most recent visit was the best one yet!!!!!

My husband and I had a grand experience here for our 19th anniversary. We had the tasting menu and asked them to add a wine tasting with each course. Really great. By the way, the former pasty chef, Claudia Fleming, still has a dessert on the menu which is over-the-top good. It's the tapioca and passion fruit dessert with cilantro syrup. We got a some of it in the dessert tasting and thought it was so good that we ordered an additional taste of it. The service is excellent. The only improvement I might ask for is for better lighting. The lighting is rather dim and glaring. Go have a good time!

This was our first time to Gramercy Tavern for dinner. The restaurant is very beautiful and is perfect for a special occassion or evening. Service was outstanding! The winelist is extensive and has a great selection. We chose 2 brunello's that reminded us of our trip to Rome. We both selected the 3 course prix fixe. I enjoyed my lamb but my boyfriends was slightly disappointed in his fish. Portion sizes are smallish and I recommend you go elsewhere if you want a heartier meal. Next time we'll try brunch!

I had no idea I was getting myself into when I made the reservation. I realize there rarely is a bad review on this restaurant but I'm very happy it lived up to it's reputation. It was my boyfriend's birthday so I encouraged him to get the tasting menu. I did as well but got the vegetarian tasting menu so we could share and have the best of both worlds. I highly recommend this decision- everything was amazing...one dish that sticks out in my mind is the mushroom tart served with an espresso glass of mushroom soup..my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Our server also suggested the perfect wine. Of course the chef threw in a few things and even gave us blueberry muffins for the next morning. Once in a lifetime experience...don't miss out.

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to have my wife take me here as a surprise birthday dinner. I have to say that all in all the experience was very nice. Reservations were for 6:00pm and we arrived at 5:45pm. The hostess was extremely nice and we were seated within five minutes. I was surprised that they actually gave us a table ten minutes early.

When we were seated we noticed that the waiter assigned to our table was talking to someone else. After a few minutes wait with no menus the bus girl brought our menus over with an apology. At first I was bothered that they had us wait but after seeing even the attention to detail that brought even the bus girl over to help made me feel more at ease.

Due to our constraint on time (we were off to see a musical after) our waiter recommended the three course meal. I have to say I highly recommend the lobster salad. The 10$ supplemental charge was well worth the added money. I tried the Quail stuffed with Fois gras while my wife had the lobster salad. Both dishes were very good but I will get the lobster salad next time we go. For entrees we went with the Lamb with Fig sauce and the Monkfish. The lamb was absolutely wonderful and melted in my mouth.

In addition to your meal they give you a small appetizer (ours was a scallop with pumpkin chutney on a clam shell), Petite four desserts, and a muffin for when we left. Our silverware was changed out five times and drinks refilled promptly.

On my dessert plate they even wrote out happy birthday in chocolate... That was a very nice touch.

Total price with two entrees + supplemental fee for the lobster and quail dish + two glasses of wine = $243

I wouldn't say it was the most expensive meal I've had in the city but it wasn't exactly cheap. All in all I didn't feel bad about the price given the meal and the service that was provided and I would definitely go back again. Next time to try the seven course meal when I have four hours to spare.

My favorite thing to do is to indulge in a delicious meal at a fine restaurant...my least favorite thing to do is to look forward to going to a hyped up restaurant, only to be disappointed! We arrived in the late evening to the Tavern, and were able to get a table pretty quickly in the bar area. I was so excited to get to experience this restaurant as I had seen so many rave reviews. Unfortunately, I was extremely disappointed....from my first sip of my horrible (and hard to mess up) dirty martini, to the dry, gravel-like pear cobbler, to the way-too-bitter, instant-pudding-like, chocolate pot-de-creme. My martini was undrinkable, so I ordered a glass of red wine, which was "franzia-esque"...(aka..like boxed wine), but I drank it because I paid a pretty penny for it. The filet mignon was good, and very salty (I'm a salt-aholic), but those not liking salty foods should stay away. The bar area was lovely, cozy, and warm. Service was good, and we were happy to see our uneaten desserts were deducted from our bill. Three girls in their thirties NEVER leave two desserts uneaten....it was obvious we didn't like it.

I have never, ever, ever, had a better restaurant experience. My husband took me here for my birthday, and I was in 7th Heaven. The service, the food, the ambiance, the drinks... it really doesn't get any better than this. It almost felt like everything just magically appeared at our table. The staff was there for everything we needed, from a dropped knife to a wine glass refill. Words are inadequate to describe a meal here, so all I'll say is save your money (for years, if necessary), and treat yourself to this experience, because it's quintessential New York. It doesn't get any better than this.

Read all the reviews before I went to the Gramercy this evening. Was prepared for small portions and good food.
The meal from start to end was terriffic. They serve you many "extra" appetizers that are small yet delicious. The cold lobster salad was more than I could eat, and my girlfriend's corn chowder was the best starter ever. The lamb was tender and well prepared.
The scenary is carrige house beautiful. The crowds were all well taken care of and everyone seemed to be having a great time, I know I was.
It was my girlfriend's birthday and I'm glad I chose this classic.
