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.

We loved our experience here and the staff was amazing! They went above and beyond to make our brunch perfect and were very attentive. The atmosphere was lovely and the location couldn’t be beat. A must do in New York!

Despite the reservation it took a while to be seated. Food was really good and server Zhanna was awesome. Ambiance wasn’t so special - expected a lot more but it was still nice. Haven’t been there in about 20 years and was expecting more from an iconic landmark place. Food made up for it despite the price.

We had a lovely afternoon dining in the glassed-in area, with a view of Central Park activities nearby. The restaurant was not crowded, the servers attentive, my hamburger was huge, messy, and delicious. A thoroughly great experience! And we split a piece of key lime pie to celebrate Pi Day.

We visited Tavern on the Green for brunch on Saturday morning on the weekend where all Broadway shows were shut down due to the Coronavirus. My daughter and I had flown in from Atlanta to see Hamilton for her birthday which unfortunately didn't happen because of the shut down. We were leaving on Saturday afternoon but decided to try TOTG to see if they were still open. They were, and while they were relatively empty, the service was no less impeccable and the staff no less friendly. In fact, they went above and beyond to give us a wonderful experience, even with everything going on in the world. They even brought out a birthday cake for my ten-year-old! Bravo to everyone for helping turn a bad situation into a memorable experience.

The food was outstanding, presentation was very pleasing, and the servers were attentive. The serving sizes are adequate--portions are neither too big nor small. The prices are high, but it's worth it for a special meal.

Beautiful but a very different look than our first visit to the original Tavern. However the front bar waiting area is comfortable and the time flys with one of their delicious custom cocktails. The pork chop was perfectly cooked and the wine reduction sauce I could have just had a cup and a couple more crusty French rolls and called it even. The extra rich carrot cake was full of flavor praline walnut pieces and a especially tasty cream cheese frosting. And my daughter enjoyed a huge slice of a festive slice of fun fetti birthday cake and ice cream. The staff was articulate, knowledgeable and friendly, graciously taking requested photos and patient enough to continue until we were happy with the right shot. A very pleasant experience and the little gift shop tucked in the corner at the front full of unique toys, gifts and mementos.

My daughter and I enjoyed celebrating our birthdays at Tavern on the Green. It is a special place, the service was delightful, the lobster roll “special” was good, not outstanding , but good. We enjoyed our time there.
