Evening meal with cocktails

Great food and good sized portions. A good fine dining experience with fast service and attentive staff. A good recommendation to go but do book ahead.

I know this is totally me, I'm a balding middle aged man, but still... When the restaurant isn't full, when it's a lunch service on a holiday weekend, why seat me and my party next to the service station? It's always like that. Either the table near the bathroom or the one near the service station. Two hours later, the... More

I may be a bit harsh with my overall mark but I didnt enjoy this as much as I could have. Perhaps it compared badly to other excellent restaurants which is unfair as on its own, back In the UK, I d rate it a 5. But it was a bit pricey for what we got and they have crowded... More

My daughter along with her friend and I had her post commencement dinner here. I ordered the halibut and my daughter ordered the Atlantic cod. Both dishes were excellent and "different". They were not your typical fish dishes and had a lot of flavors, yet still very tender. The service staff was attentive and the wine was good (though on... More

My wife and I had a great experience, we decided to sit at the bar as we usually like to and were very impressed. All the food was superb, they even split the dishes for us. Bartender was spot on and very professional. We will return.

Gotham is a quintessential classic New York restaurant. The moment you step into the entry gallery, there is an air of grander which immediately tells you, this is going to be a great experience. The food and service lives up to your expectation. If you don't have time or a reservation, step unto the bar and just enjoy a quick... More

Joseph greets you at the front desk and is so welcoming which makes you feel comfortable. Our server Lexie was excellent and very knowledgable. Heidi the wine director is wonderful and will steer you in the... More

I knew that if I called to make a reservation for today, Wednesday, for an hour from the time I wanted to eat, they would tell me that they were completely booked. What I did was, I looked up some other restaurants in the Zagat guide that would be a good second choice in case the bar at The Gotham... More

Went with friends to celebrate the departure of a good friend back to Michigan. Mentioned it to the waiter. As always food was superb, service seamless and elegant without being overbearing. They have it down for professional friendly attentive service with great food. Not cheap but worth every cent. Case in point with service. We only ordered one dessert and... More

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.
