We love the BPG - it offers many options - indoor, outdoor, all delightful. For me personally, I love the relative quietness; here you don't have to strain to talk in a normal voice and hear what your dinner partners have to say; this is an increasingly rare find in today's very noisy world. The spacing and size of the... More

I had an informal business dinner here for two people. We sat out on the terrace in perfect conditions, which were matched by the food and service. We ate simply - starters and mains only but both meals were good and provided what we were looking for. We were left alone to talk business by the serving staff, but they... More

I think the biggest appeal of this place is the location. Sitting outside, in Bryant Park, with people around and great atmosphere really was the highlight. The food was good, but I wouldn't say it was great for the price. Staff were friendly, but just kind of left you alone. All in all a great experience, but I didn't think... More

We sat on the roof terrace around 3.30pm on a beautiful sunny day!! Only had a couple of appetisers and cocktails but we were not disappointed at all !! Tasty food , reasonably priced, friendly staff , lovely views over the park and when dusk set in the twinkly lights around the bar set off the ambience with great effect!!... More

The location was very close to our hotel and the lights and outdoor setting were lovely. BUT, For what they charge the food and the service should have been better.

Decided to stop in for lunch before heading home. I ordered a glass of wine and the Tuna. Tuna was cooked perfectly and the portion just right. It was a bit pricey, but I thought it was worth it. We sat outside and enjoyed watching all the people coming in and out of the park. Great lunch!

I have enjoyed lunch at Bryant Park Grill 3 times in the last 2 months. I've dined outside & inside. My favorite spot was a table inside near the windows, overlooking the park & people walking past. My least favorite was seating inside under the overhang where it was quite noisy. Depending on the time of lunch, the wait can... More

After a day of walking the city, it was a delight to enter this restaurant. Brightly colored, COMFY chairs, with a lovely view of the park through huge windows, the ambiance was cheerful and just right for the two of us. We were treated to attentive service and great seafood. IF ever in NYC we will go back.

Every time I am in NY I have dinner here one night during my stay. I often dine alone and I really like the central location, the relaxed atmosphere and the great food. the service is good and fast, and when you are on your own they look after you very well. I happened to be there during December when... More
