Absolutely loved our waitress Kelsey. Best experience for my grandmas 99th birthday lunch! Delicious food, and great value. It was a little salty but we enjoyed everything especially the Arctic Char and strawberry scallop ceviche. Love the idea of supporting sustainable fisheries with their daily catch menu!

Utterly incredible. We had gotten married two days before, and when we reserved we let them know we were celebrating. They made us feel like royalty and threw in so many complimentary items, which, on top of the exquisite six course seasonal tasting menu, made this an unforgettable experience. Rob, the captain of our service team, was the personification of perfect service. By the end of the meal he felt like the friend you like to go out with because you know he’ll have the best recommendations of anyone you know. This restaurant has everything you’d expect from a Union Square Hospitality Group venture and more, and while the price tag is enormous, it’s worth every penny.

I came to Gramercy Tavern for my wedding anniversary and it was the perfect spot to celebrate. The food and it’s presentation were works of art. We couldn’t believe how delicious and flavorful each course was and the seasonal tasting menu was the best I’ve had in terms of quality and taste. Highly recommend!!

I've lived in NYC for 27 years and go out to eat a lot but have never been to Gramercy Tavern in spite of having it on my list of top restaurants to try for years. I was so looking forward to eating there but have to say it was disappointing. The food was good, not great, and our waitress wasn't so attentive.

Overall, a very good dining experience. Food, ambiance and overall service were a high. My only negative comment is that I was very disappointed with the main server regarding a couple of her beverage suggestions. More specifically, I had ordered a Bourbon Manhattan (with Makers Mark bourbon). The server recommended another bourbon that she said was exceptional, if I wanted to try it. When I looked at the price for the bourbon she recommended, it was twice the price from Makers Mark (approx. $34)! I informed the server that I did not want to pay that exorbitant a price for a drink. She then recommended another bourbon that was also significantly more than my choice.

Then when ordering two glasses of wine to accompany our food, the server commented that the wine I chose might not be the best choice for my specific meal. I honestly don't think a server should ever comment on a guest's choice of wine, unless the guest specifically asks for recommendations.

I honestly don't know if my experience with this server was following policy of Gramercy Tavern, or simply her own motive for attempting to raise the overall bill or attempting to showcase her perceived knowledge.

Fantastic culinary experience for a birthday celebration. One of the best meals I’ve savored in a while, last one was probably Gordon Ramsay Steak. Each course of the meal was perfectly balanced and complementary to one another. Loved the tagliatelle bolognese, Arctic char and caramelized cheesecake dessert. My partner loved the pork loin as well. We will certainly come back again!

Gramercy Tavern is our favorite restaurant and never misses a beat. We usually go for dinner, but decided to go for brunch on Sunday to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. We received glasses of Prosecco on the house and were seated at our favorite table. Scallops, oysters, hamburger and pork schnitzel were spectacular. Although the food was fabulous, what added to the incredible day was the service and warmth of everyone. We have never had a bad experience.

Prepare to be "Wowed", we were in town for a long weekend and ate at several of the newer well reviewed places, and I have to tell everyone - this place is incredible! One of the best meals I've had in a long time. Everything was fresh and perfectly seasoned, innovative and interesting! The service is outstanding, could not have been better. This is a not to miss restaurant and I for one can't wait to come back and try it again.

Love Gramercy Tavern. We got there as they opened on Sunday morning so it was quiet. It is quite a bit more vibrant in the evening when people are lined up to get into the bar area where they don't take reservations. Also, they are a tipping free venue which I like. Service was spectacular from all staff and management.

Loved: the ambiance, the wine list, the dessert, the biscuits, the service
My husband and I were both underwhelmed by our entrees (and somewhat underwhelmed by our first course as well). Don't get me wrong, it was good! But we were expecting phenomenal. We live in Chicago and like trying great restaurants everywhere we travel, so we are maybe being tough critics

We had the six course tasting menu. It was outstanding! Every course was a delightful combination of flavor and texture. Our server was also outstanding -- Ayisha did an incredible job of describing each course, answering questions and coordinating the pace of the entire meal. The wine pairings truly enhanced each course. My guests from out of town were overwhelmed by the entire experience.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. It has a really nice atmosphere, vibe, service staff, and food. I feel more at ease too with the no tip policy knowing that everyone that works there is getting a good wage and there is no up sell mentality.

We had a long and extremely delicious lunch right before catching our flight to end our vacation. We each had the seasonal tasting menu and I had the wine pairing. The wine pairings were perfectly matched. Everything we ate was worth a lengthy discussion and we couldn’t have been more pleased with our choice in our final NYC dining experience.
