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 had a lovely experience here. The server was helpful and so eager to make our experience lovely. She didn't rush us, made excellent recommendations, and delivered a big piece of birthday cake to top off our birthday celebration. Overall a great experience.

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.

Celebrating our daughters' birthday, beautiful location. Food was very good, it was brunch. The reason I can't say outstanding is my husband and son ordered the steak and eggs. The steak came with no options, and was quite rare. The eggs were only available as scrambled. Maybe offering a few vegan options would be great! My daughter had the salmon, and she said was delicious! It was so fun being there and getting to have drinks, and brunch in such an iconic place. We will definitely return. They also brought out a huge piece of birthday cake for our daughters' birthday, which was awesome!

We LOVE Tavern. Service, ALL THE SERVICE, from the hostess to waitstaff to chef, is always wonderfully accommodating, attentive and polite. Dietary restrictions are remembered and respected. The food is quite good (salmon, salad, grill pizza) and the ambiance is, well, glorious. It is an excellent value for the level of service, location and lovely ambiance. Tavern is such a joy to visit!

I give the staff and decor 5 stars and the food 3 stars. Came here for dinner on a Thursday night. The vibe was cozy, the music was great and the staff amazing. The lobster mac and cheese was just ok. It actually tasted funny to me but my date said it was good. The garlic shrimp was cooked perfectly but the flavor was a bit underwhelming as was the shortrib which was in desperate need of salt. The creme brule tasted good but it was cold. Service was great food and drinks came out pretty quickly. All in all a good experience and Id give it anothe

Had dinner at the iconic Tavern on the Green to celebrate my wife's birthday after a Broadway matinee. The ambiance is beautiful and inviting. The staff were very attentive and accommodating as we made a few requests for changes. My wife was lavished with encouragement for her birthday. Only wished we could have gone during the day to see Central Park.

Our server, Maitland, for table 133, was Phenomenal! He let us relax, which is what we were looking for. He was there if we needed something and let us enjoy our Tavern experience!

The Tavern is a true New York treasure! The food was fabulous, cocktails were fabulous, atmosphere was fabulous! All being while being serenaded by soft 80’s music. We retired to the bar and had a wonderful time!

Thank you for keeping this NYC destination a must visit if you love a relax atmosphere with great service and food! LOVE us some Tavern on the Green!

We did NYC for my fiance's birthday and this was by far our favorite out of the six restaurants we visited during our mini vacation. The attention to detail to the level of personal knowledge of the waitstaff in relationship to the menu to the presentation and taste of the food itself - simply outstanding. What sets Tavern on the Green apart from the other fine dining experiences in NYC? It is simply its staff. Every customer is valued and made to feel welcome. Amazing time and we will be back.

This was our third time celebrating our anniversary at Tavern on the Green. Everything was excellent as usual. We had a wonderful server named Delaney who provided excellent service and also gave us a history on the history of the establishment . We look forward to having many more dinners at Tavern on the Green in the future. Please let Delaney know how much we enjoyed the service she provided us.

Sincerely,

Daylon and Lynda Brock

I frequented the previous Tavern on the Green and loved it, Since the restaurant reopened, I have enjoyed dining twice in your Tavern on the Green. The first time was on a warm spring day and I had brunch outdoors with a jazz band playing. Yesterday, I had brunch indoors but had a beautiful view of the outdoor space. Once again, I had an excellent meal. The staff was friendly and the service was meticulous.

We got there and asked for a table in the main room. We were offered a table at the back room twice until they finally understood we wanted to be in the main room, which is the nicest room in the restaurant. Service is very good overall, they were very nice and patient with us and we even had a complimentary birthday cake. Desserts are awesome, food is average and definitely overpriced. Overall I recommend to go for some casual drinks and have desserts, the place is awesome but if you’re looking for a good lunch/dinner there are way more convenient options to make the most out of your money, here it’s not worth it.

Gorgeous setting! We enjoyed drinks in the bar before being seated in the atrium. Our server, Lijun, was very kind and attentive, and our food came out promptly. We ordered the chicken paillard and the frittata. Both were delicious! It was a great spot for lunch and we will certainly return!
