Steakhouse
Midtown West
About the restaurant
Founded by former Ziegfield girl Helen Gallagher and the colorful gambler and sports enthusiast Jack Solomon, Gallaghers opened as a speakeasy and steakhouse in 1927. At that time, the height of Prohibition, a good stiff drink and a great steak were hard to find in New York – except, of course, at Gallaghers.

New Yorkers come for the world-class cocktails and incredible steak – prime beef dry-aged for 21 days in Gallaghers’ legendary windowed meat locker. The combination of all-natural dry aging and cooking it to perfection over hickory coals makes for a steak unlike any other found in New York.

Gallaghers’ guests are welcome in a wide variety of attire – from elegant casual to business suits. We respectfully request that you refrain from wearing hats, sports jerseys, tank tops and shorts.

It is a pricey meal but one that you will not regret. I rarely eat red meat, but the steak is the stuff of dreams: it's got a slight char on the outside, it's juicy and a bit salty, and somehow melts in your mouth. The side of broccoli rabe was the best I've ever had, and the sauteed mushrooms and mashed potatoes were perfect. The cocktail options were really fun and the selection of spirits gave us plenty of options. Dessert was another high point. Who does Baked Alaska anymore? Awesome! It was torched at the table for some extra flare. The creme brulee with the hint of orange was everything it should be, and the coconut cream pie was actually enhanced by the homemade crust which is not something that can often be said. However, the ambiance and outstanding service are equally as exceptional as the fare. It is a real experience and one I felt fortunate to experience with family.

About the restaurant
Magical is a word thrown around a lot when discussing Tavern On The Green and one can’t help but feel magic in the air. Jim and David, architect Richard Lewis and landscape architect Robin Key, preserved the Victorian/ Gothic elegance of the semi-circular building; it is authentic, natural, elegant and sexy. It has been re-built to spectacular precision and the décor is of a grand farmhouse one might find on the property of an Italian Villa or a historic Hudson River Valley mansion.

Dress Code: Smart Casual. Jacket and Tie are Not Required.
* We do not permit sleeveless shirts for gentlemen nor athletic/running/jogging attire for any patrons in the main restaurant.

Reservations as early as 60 days out through our Reservations Department at 212-877-8684 or reservations@tavernonthegreen.com

Joined for brunch on a Saturday and sat on the patio. Had a fantastic baked egg dish and all four diners enjoyed their dishes too. Rose sangria was light and refreshing and not too sweet. Would love to try for dinner and will def explore the other locations.

Food? Amazing. Bolognese was banging. Service? Also spectacular. Everyone was very nice and went above and beyond the entire time. Ambience? Amazing. Sat outside and had the best view, was so comfortable. The cocktail glasses were beautiful as well. The prices for the food were also on par with the quality and I’d say for the price you can’t beat it when coupled with everything else. And definitely a great value for NYC. This is going to be my new go to spot for out of town visitors!
