The Minetta delivered a serious 1-2 dinner for all do us. First came the fantastic setting then (out of know where) came outstanding service. What a combo. As if that wasn't enough, another 1-2 in the form of great food followed by expected prices. Knocked us out! This is "Village Dinning" like it's supposed to be. It's old school and... More

If you are looking for a typical old American place, with good food and great service Minetta is this place. We had a great time there eating their fabulous hamburger and drinking mimosas. Make your advanced reservation, eat there and after this unforgettable meal, walk around the lovely neighborhood. I definitely will eat there again next time I visit NYC.

The Minetta tavern is a quintessential New York experience. I tasted a great burgher. Great atmosphere and great location, just few steps from the Comedy Cellar and the Blue note.

A friend made reservations for this place, had oysters as an app and a fish dish. It was very good, companions had a burger and they loved it. Super portions on the burger that is for sure that thing was huge. I would for sure go back.

It''s nice to know that you can rock up to somewhere like the Tavern and immediately get a table. Maybe my jetlag helped that I was eating at 6p. The place comes as an unexpected refuge from the McDougal vibe, speakeasy-ish as you enter a room with indisputable charm and class. Red banquettes, white linen, black and white tiles and... More

When talking in Boston to a couple of NY girls, mentioning we made reservations to eat a Burger for lunch, they immediately said: Minetta Tavern! So expectations were high. Very popular spot, interior could easily be a film set, you imagine a 'Goodfella' stepping in any minute... Try one of the Bloody Mary's and enjoy the burger and the busy... More

Celebrated a friends birthday and had a great time from when we walked in the door to when we left. Every course was fantastic and we ate until we were stuffed. The chocolate soufflé was sublime. Looking forward to another visit: don't wait for a special occasion, just go.

We were treated to dinner here by my husband's business associate. We arrived early and they graciously sat us at our table while we waited on our hosts. We changed tables after they arrived at their request due to the crowded seating. There just wasn't enough room for us. The rooms are decorated with photographs and art work filling the... More
