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.

My partner and I came here as an impromptu date night.

The lighting in the evening is gorgeous and, if you get to sit by the glass walls, it feels like you’re dining outside but with the comforts of indoor dining.

We were serviced by the wonderful and attentive Laine.

With her recommendations, I tried the Truffle Mac & Cheese and Sautéed Mushrooms which were TO DIE FOR.

My partner tried the 28 Day Dried Sirloin Stake and his mouth was watering all the way through as he ate it with the best Whipped Potatoes and Spinach Cream we’ve ever tried.

Our experience was one we will always remember and Laine was vital to making our date night into a Dream Night to share together, talk, and enjoy amazing food.

Laine even helped my partner surprise me with cake to celebrate my birthday!

Thank you to Tavern on the Green for such a great experience.

Thank you to Laine, for bringing us such amazing and unforgettable service.

P.S. Laine deserves a raise!

Went for restaurant week. We were seated right away. Table was not next to the window even though all the seats at the window were open. But we could see the park. Our server greeted us, took our drink order and seemed to take her time delivering them. We then sat there as our disappearing server was no were to be seen. We asked someone to find her so we could order.
Our meal was very good. The atmosphere was lovely. It was just the service that was a disappointment.
Still I would recommend it for the lovely atmosphere.

Please note that they do not do Restaurant Week menus on Sundays.... service was great, but the food was abhorrent. Sparkling water, one appetizer, two soups, and one entree ran us $130 with tip. We couldn’t finish our food because it was too gross to eat. Beautiful place, but not worth it.

Eating at Tavern on the Green is an experience all should encounter at least once during warm weather and during winter. It's so picturesque. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by a friendly staff. Our server was also friendly and attentive. The only reason I don't give it a 5 star is because it took a while to get our entrees at 5:00 on a Sunday. If in a rush, this won't work for you. If you have 2-3 hours for your meal, this is PERFECT. A lot of architecture and sunlight to enjoy.

Once again, Tavern on the Green hosted a glorious friend&family celebration to remember. The double-birthday-lunch-bunch was seated at a lovely table, with plenty of elbow room and a low noise level allowing for gracious conversation. Food was delicious, drinks were at the ready, and the complimentary slices of birthday cake were much appreciated. Thanks again for hosting another cherished memory!

Ambiance was amazing, as usual. Good quality was very good. Service was prompt. The sparking Riesling I had was nearly flat though but it still tasted good. Food and beverage were pricy, but that’s what you’d expect for NYC and this restaurant. Overall a good experience.

Very personable staff from the coat check to the host staff to the servers and waiters. What a wonderful place for brunch on a Sunday in glass covered court yard; can see the runners, carriages and strollers in the park! Food was very inventive, tasty and filling. Coffee service was served by the gallon and they noted our anniversary with a slice of celebration cake!

After reading the reviews we were looking forward to our dinner. We hadn’t been to the Tavern on the Green for almost 15 years even though we live in the neighborhood. Unfortunately it was a disappointing experience. The chopped vegetable salad was very good but the entrees were just average. The service was perfunctory. I would suggest going there for a drink at the bar as the restaurant is beautiful especially the front room and the bar. Not a place we would return for dinner.

Service was great, ambiance was spectacular but the food was subpar. Their seafood options tasted frozen and the dessert has an aftertaste. Can’t say I would go back.

My friend and I went to Tavern on the Green for NYC restaurant week. I can say it was one of the best meals I have ever had. Only complaint is that they brought out each course too fast. I had yet to finish my first course before the main course arrived. Otherwise, service was excellent. The restaurant’s atmosphere was much needed after a long day at work. Would highly recommend!

We made reservations and when we arrived there was a couple that did a walk-in in front of us and there were only two more couples waiting. It took 15 minutes and the place was not busy. So, the couple that did a walk-in with no reservations were seated ahead of us. They were obviously tourists and excited and taking pictures which is great but they lost our $800... Why would you make people wait that long with no apologies and seat non-reservations guests ahead of reservations? We've been to much better and they really need to get their act together... All the staff seem to be barley moving with no expressions... so odd. Wonder how they are doing compared the other high-end high service eateries in midtown?
