Description: One of America’s most beloved restaurants, Gramercy Tavern has welcomed guests for close to two decades to enjoy seasonal American cuisine, warm hospitality and unparalleled service. The restaurant is perennially ranked at the top of Zagat Survey’s ‘Most Popular’ list, and has garnered eight James Beard Awards including ‘Outstanding Restaurant’ and ‘Best Chef: NYC’. Chef Michael Anthony’s highly seasonal menu consists of elegant dishes with a rustic influence that showcase the restaurant’s relationships with local farms and purveyors. The Main Dining Room serves prix-fixe menus starting at $92 for dinner and an a la carte menu for lunch, and accepts reservations 28 days in advance. The more casual Tavern serves an a la carte menu centered around the wood burning grill, and welcomes guests on a walk-in basis. The restaurant also features an acclaimed wine list, and thoughtfully selected beer and cocktail offerings.

We recently booked Gramercy Tavern for my husband's birthday. Because of the high demand, we had a really early dinner reservation (5:30pm). We arrived on time and were immediately greeted and seated. We chose the 3 course menu and were very happy. The selections were interesting and the plating was really pretty. Also, the service was excellent but relaxed and... More

Any restaurant that calls you several times to get you to reconfirm on the phone an online reservation is very annoying since having to call back (if you happen to be busy when they called) to reconfirm a reservation is defeating the whole point of online reservations. If they have such a problem they ought to ask for a ccard... More

Difficult to get reservations for dinner so we went for lunch instead. Promptly seated and served. Smaller menu for lunch but still some amazing offerings and excellent cocktails. Will be going back.

Gramercy Tavern is my wife's favourite restaurant of all time. The food served here is simply divine. The service is relaxed though efficient and always utterly courteous. It's expensive but then you get what you pay for, and the money spent on this meal was worth every penny and more. I had the steak and I will never forget it.... More

This is a wonderful restaurant that offers such a creative blend of fresh ingredients. My husband and I went with our 12 year old son. I am a vegetarian and a celiac. They both had the full regular tasting menu while I enjoyed the seasonal vegetable tasting menu. Substitutions for gluten free and a shell fish allergy was no problem.... More

We finally had dinner but in the grill section (no reservations). The restaurant is difficult to get reservation. We were extremely happy with the grill. We had the 4 course menu for 48 dollars which was a bargain for the quality. We had a cucumber salad, followed by pan seared sea bass, then duck meatloaf and dessert. All courses were... More

This was the finale of our Columbia daughter's 21st bday weekend in the city - the end of a long day filled with shopping and eating. It did not disappoint. We were a party of six with one picky eater, age 13, and they worked with her until she had as good of a time as the rest of us.... More

I'll book a table for a 50th birthday lunch with four friends from Australia. We arrived early and enjoyed a nice drink at the bar. When our friends arrived we sat down to a memorable lunch .... Good food, great wines and service that was attentive and relaxed. We were treated to individual birthday cakes and the staff were quite... More
