I have been here before, many years ago. I remember that dinner as a memorable occation, and Gotham was a place I recommended to friends. This time something was lacking. The service was great, and the food was good, but there was a certain lack of charm. It's efficient and competent, but it's also quite pricey. And I left feeling... More

Between the ambiance, company and food, one of the best culinary experiences I have ever enjoyed. Steak melted in your month, house specialty key lime pie to die for, salads and beverages wonderful - great experience

With old favorites like the miso black cod balanced with fresh and innovative duck and lamb entrees, this beautiful restaurant never disappoints. It's comforting to know that great restaurants can make it over the long haul. With so many restaurants in New York, this is a must for tourists and locals alike.

This is a clasic, and you will not be dissaponted! Place looks good as always, service is great. The sommelier knows what he is doing and the food tastes delicious! What else can you ask for? I tried the peas tortellini, delicious and the crispy fried soft shell crabs. Very good!

Over the past 10 years, Gotham bar has been our go-to place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions. Each time we make a reservation, a perfect dining experience is guaranteed. On our most recent visit, we ordered the seafood salad and wild mushroom risotto for appetizers. For our entrees, my husband had the lamb chop while I had the... More

We decided to book a fine dining experience whilst we were in NYC, we couldn't have picked much better. The service and staff were great and the food was even better. They catered very well for food allergies and intolerance's. We never felt rushed and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

A vibrant place with a great menu and attentive service. The atmosphere was lively. It was quiet enough to chat. The menu had a lot of variety. Vichyssois was excellent. Soft shell crab appetizer was suberb. We had steaks, fish, and risotto and all were enjoyed. Wine selection made ys happy. Will definitely go back.

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
