Just a little underwhelmed.

My wife and I dined there at 6:00 pm mid-week recently and I'm sorry to say, that based on all the glowing reviews, I was expecting the experience to be somewhat more than it turned out to be. The atmosphere is pleasant enough. However the tables for 2 are parked closely together, perhaps too... read more

We have been to GB&G twice in the past month. After 31 years of operation we are pleased to say they have not lost a beat, and appear as popular as ever with an eclectic audience of devoted fans. A warm greeting from Joseph and the team at the door, a talented and unobtrusive service team, seasonal menu that is... More

The Gotham is a great experience. We ordered a six course meal, and it came full of excellent surprises. Mind it, though, they CHARGE for their excellent food and service, so be prepared to spend good money. If you can, you'll be more than pleased with it!!!

Gotham grabs you from the moment you walk in with a warm and professional staff that greets you. We were seated right on time per our reservation. This place is NOT cheap, but the food is superb and served in a beautiful manner by servers dedicated to service. Our waiter was a bit reluctant to suggest for us, but was... More

We visited this restaurant with high expectations and they were exceeded. The drinks service and food were all amazing. Food presentation was fabulous and our party of four all thoroughly enjoyed every one of our 3 courses. The wine selection was huge and with the help of the sommelier we had a fabulous Pinot Gris and a Nebbiolo. I would... More

Arrived for dinner at 530. Got there early and sat at the bar for drinks. Let them know that we had show tickets at 730 so we had to be out by 700-ish. For appetizer, we got bass cerviche and beet salad- vet good and above average. Bigger portions than Gramercy Tavern so satisfying. Dinner was black cod and soft... More

i must have contributed over $2M in sales at the Gotham since I moved next door in 1985. For the past two years, I have been living in the center of Firenze, with a fiancé who has cooked for the great Florentine Nobility, those very ones who are selling thousands of bottles of their Tuscan wines world wide.

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.
