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.

The place is beautiful and they gave us a great table for my daughters bday. The room was quite noisy when we arrived but it got better. The service was great but the food not as good as our last visit years ago. They did a wonderful surprise bday cake for my daughter. We definitely enjoyed our brunch.

This is a charming restaurant in Central Park where we had a Brunch. The vegetable frittata was flat tasting but the Eggs Benedict and berry yogurt plate were excellent. A very nice experience.

The only reason I wasn't super happy with the experience was because of the quality of my food. The service was great, the atmosphere was nice, the cocktail I got was good. My main (the steak and eggs) was rather bland. Not a ton of flavor in any part. The steak was pretty bland and very chewy, the eggs were unseasoned, as were the potatoes. It certainly left something to be desired. Especially for the price and the amount of food I got, I was expecting more flavor, and a higher quality steak.

This was a dream restaurant week meal - such a creative menu, well designed, beautifully designed, and the service was extremely friendly and thoughtful. The Tavern always treated guests well, and have kept their humor and sheer niceness through Covid. The lobster bisque was fabulous, the grilled chicken sumptuous, and you can't go wrong with any of the desserts!

We had a lovely time at Tavern on the Green. You just can't miss with the waitstaff! The room is also lovely.
They did seat people really close together, though there was a great deal of seating available when we arrived.
The fish was just okay but the chips (fries) are delicious!
Overall, still one of my favorite stops on a visit to NYC, just not quite as good as the last time.

I got a reservation for 11am. It was my daughter's first trip there. When we asked if we could have a seat by the windows overlooking Central Park, they were able to accommodate us, no problem. Andrew, our server, was excellent and had a great wine recommendation. Tavern on the Green is a lovely place to eat and the food doesn't disappoint.

I was at Tavern on the Green nearly 35 years ago. They have truly taken a historic location and brought it to the next level. The food, the staff, the ambience, were all top notch. A great place for a nice romantic dinner for two or a family dinner. Can’t wait to go back again.

The whole experience was average. The service was good but very underwhelmed by the food. Three of us had the 20 day aged sirloin and it was not very favorfull and a little tough.
We have had better steaks and service at other high end restaurants. But we have a good memory.
