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.
Please note: We do not permit sleeveless shirts for gentlemen nor athletic/running/jogging attire for any patrons in the main restaurant.

    I felt rushed: dishes were taken away before every on e was finished. The server was rushed, spilled drink. The noise level was very high. Servers and staff did not know the ingredients of the specials. Servers and staff were friendly. The restaurant was lovely. Don’t need to rush back.

    Our third visit here from the UK. Food lovely but overpriced. Service was adequate. Waiter told my wife that her first choice for her meal could not be modified (wanted to swap type of cheese for her steak sandwich and was told this was not possible. She then asked to delete cheese altogether and told this was not possible) Other than that everything went well, burgers and fries arrived cooked per order, but suppose when you are paying $31 for each of them its what you would hope for !

    The salmon and scallops were good, but not anything exceptional. The steak was over cooked, my son asked for medium and it was a clearly well done steak. The waitress was friendly but certainly didn’t go out of her way to provide excellent service, we were never given plates for the starters that we were sharing, so we used our small bread plates. We were also not asked if we’d been there before and there was no menu explanation. All in all it gets 4 stars for its historical significance and overall an hence. But we could have had a better special dining experience sr a lot of fine dining establishments with more elevated service. Somewhat disappointing food experience, but it was still a place to see.

    We had reservations for brunch but could not get in for 20 min. After we checked in, we were told to wait because our table wasn’t ready. Doesn’t look that staff is trained. Everything was very hectic. Finally after checking again with the hostess, we got seated. Today was 83F in NY but no AC in Tavern on the Green was working. Food wise was very mediocre. Food presentation was zero. What’s happened to this place??? Used to be tasty with a great service. Not anymore. Very sad experience.

    We love Tavern and visit every time we’re in town. Unfortunately we reserved for Brunch last weekend (June) and they seated us in the Atrium section of the restaurant. Unfortunately, they did not mention the Air conditioning had been broken all morning. The restaurant was very warm and everyone was uncomfortable. Although these things happen, the restaurant made no effort to advise us of the situation or when it would be resolved. Ultimately we had a pricey brunch that no one enjoyed considering that we were seated indoors with no air-conditioning on a very warm summer day. The situation was unacceptable for this caliber establishment. No acknowledgement or considerations were made on our bill or throughout our service for this inconvenience. Very disappointed.

    Fantastic brunch at TOTG. Booked a reservation online about 4 weeks ago per my sister's recommendation who had just visited. Wasn't sure if this would be "old and dated" but it was far from it. Restaurant is beautiful - super classy and in Central Park. We were there on PRIDE Sunday s a special PRIDE menu was provided. Wonderful service from Patricia, our lovely, beautiful server from Venezuela. I got the heirloom tomato salad with pea shoots and crispy pancetta - added salmon for protein - cooked perfectly. Teens got burgers which they said almost defeated them. One of my boys could not finish his! Cooked medium rare. This is an experience - you must go. Tried to get into the Boathouse first but TOTG is much more famous and in my opinion, this was one of the FAVORITE experiences of the trip. thank you!

    I’ve lived in NY for 5 years and never been here, which felt like a travesty given that Tavern on the Green is such a New York institution. Booked an outdoor brunch reservation a week or so in advance. You can ignore the dress code details on Open Table - there were plenty of people dining that had just run a race in Central Park and still in their running clothes and even bibs. We waited in line for 12 minutes to get to the hostess stand, but were quickly showed to a table when we arrived. The outdoor dining area is shaded by umbrellas and a large overhead canopy but we were sat at the only table that had no shade, even though there were plenty available. We accepted the table they showed us to, not wanting to be of any trouble, but in hindsight, we should have spoken up. It was 90 degrees and we very quickly got uncomfortable, even the silverware was scorching if accidentally left in the sun. We ordered drinks and entrees, which were all wonderful and large portions. We had planned to order dessert but were so miserable in the sun that we opted not to and got the check as soon as possible. For being such an iconic NYC establishment, we found our bill to be very reasonable. If we were to come back, we’d make dinner reservations for outdoors when the sun isn’t so intense. The conditions truly overtook the experience for us.

    The Acoustics that Friday night was beyond great. Everyone got up and danced outside. The food was not good... steak was very chewy. Potato's bland... they messed my order up. The fries were good and the wine. Other than that it's more of a Ambience place for me.

    It was my husband’s 40th birthday. They made it very special with a great table with perfect views of the patio. We had an excellent server that was very sweet and attentive. We ordered the Tomahawk for two which came with roasted potatoes and mac and cheese that was all delicious! Presentation was also spot on! The birthday cake was beautiful and came with a small dollop of ice cream. All in all, it was a great night to remember!

    I wasn't blown away by any of the food! I love mashed potatoes so I ordered a side of them and after my first bite all I could think was they tasted like instant mashed potatoes. Very bland and boring. The steak I ordered for $78 was on the tougher side and in no way worth the money I paid for it. The three sauces that accompanied the steak were the best part of the meal.

    We reserved a table outside and received confirmation. Upon arrival we were seated at a table inside with no explanation that they moved us due to possible incoming rain. We were seated by a family with two loud children. We asked to relocate and moved to a table in an even louder location. We tried one more time at the original location. When we walked into the room we noticed two other couples relocated due to the loud children. We decided leave, we weren't interested in spending our last night listening to screaming toddlers and staff who didn't care. When we let the host know we were leaving, so they could use our table she equally couldn't care less. This review isn't for the food, unfortunately we didn't try it but we ended up at a local little French restaurant that was amazing and a true New York experience.

    Tavern on the GreenResponded 3 days agoI'm sorry you felt that way about your experience. In an effort to still accommodate your party rather than just cancel your reservation due to inclement weather, we moved you to an indoor table. We do also have a weather warning notice listed on Open Table for all outdoor reservations that you can see below: Please note, if your reservation is booked for OUTDOORS, it is weather dependent and and we cannot guarantee indoor accommodations in the event of inclement weather.
