Visited with friends, one of whom was last here more than 15 years ago. Was expecting very formal. The welcome was extremely friendly and although the restaurant setting is fairly formal I still felt very relaxed. The service was impeccable and food was top notch. The seafood salad appetizer was perfect and the lamb chops beautifully cooked. Wine selection was... More

For a premier restaurant to have its service fall as badly as this one, management must have changed. This "was" our favorite NY place to dine. The food is still off the charts, atmosphere tops, and if you are willing to put up with I attentive waiters this is the place for you. If not go to Marea or better... More

Was that Bruce Wayne or was it Woody Allen sitting reposed in elegance? When you journey to Manhattan Gotham Bar & Grill is a choice you must make! Exceptional fare...inventive...delicate...Service mirrors the classic interior...subtle...engaging...joyful...Time is a Thief...Be the Master...Not the Mastered...Tick Tock...

We came here on a Saturday evening to celebrate a birthday. The location is great, the decoration is classy. Their menu is flexible meaning you can combine three courses to your liking or just two courses or one course. I was surprised they only had a vegetarian preset tasting menu. I would have expected at least one additional non-vegetarian preset... More

Wow! Haven't been to Gotham in two years. What a mistake. We had a great lunch. First, our complements to our server Dash, he was terrific. The food is wonderful. They have a $34 green market menu, but we opted for a la carte. Tuna tartare (sound familiar?) but this on is delicious and light, perfect lunch fare. Risotto with... More

This is one of NYC's gems. The service staff was amazing. The food was over the top. We will be back again and again.

We went here this summer for a special sister's night out to celebrate a birthday. It was a very special evening. The room is elegant and lovely, the service incredible and the food delicious! I would go back there in a heartbeat! The bar was also quite nice. I would plan to have some extra time to sit at the... More

My friend had the prix-fixe lunch and I had the soft-shell crabs, which were wonderfully crisp just as I like them. My friend was satisfied but not exalted. The place is elegant and airy and relatively quiet. Tables are far enough apart that one can have a civilized conversation. Service is friendly and elegant. I plan to go back soon.

we had a reservation at 14:00 for lunch. We seated without any attention at all (standing around) at 14:35 and we left at 16:25 after waiting more than a quarter for every course of the meal. The food was good but the service not acceptable

There is a prix fixe $34 three course lunch available here which is a steal. We really enjoyed our lunch here, although the waitress mistook my wife's ravioli order for skate fish. I am really glad we came here before joining our group tour. In my opinion everyone who visits NYC should at least have lunch here once.
