Description: You feel a great energy when you walk into the Glass House Tavern. The decor is soothing and warm and truly makes the customer feel welcome. The prompt, friendly service is delightful and the food is incredible. Executive Chef Craig Cupani has created a contemporary American menu that sets this restaurant apart from the other choices in the neighborhood. Fresh, seasonal ingredients are the emphasis here and the results are fantastic.

“Good choice for pre theater dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We stopped in here between going to Cat on A Hot Tin Roof and Peter and the Starcatcher. It was an excellent choice. The price fixed dinner was good and a value for the quality and quantity offered. One drawback was that as the restaurant filled, the noise level became uncomfortable.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Met some friends for drinks/dinner after a 2pm show. Everyone loved the place. The atmosphere is contemporary lounge area with very welcoming dining room. Food was outstanding, service was wonderful. They had a pre-fixed menu which had great selections and a nice selection with moderate prices on the regular menu. We will definately go back next time we are in the Times Square area.

“Decent Meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We were really looking for more of tavern type setting but there was no wait and very close to the broadway show we had tickets to. When we first looked at the menu outside we all found something that suited our interest; then we sat down. The menu they handed us was different than the one we had looked at. We quickly realized there were 2 different menus and, the downstairs menu (more of bar menu) and the upstairs menu (upscale meals). We asked if we could see the bar menu and they were very gracious about it, no problems and very accommidating. We ordered basic meals, burgers, fries, chicken, cuban. There were 4 of us and not a one had a complaint, very tasty and nice service.

I would however make sure you have a flashlight app on your phone. It was pretty dark and to actaully read the menu was a bit difficult!

“Great meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Selected this restaurant based on location and reviews. Great food and service. For the theater district the price was as expected. The portions were huge. We both ordered salads and could have shared one and still not finished it. Same with the entrees. We would definitely return.

“Very good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We went to the Glass House Tavern prior to going to the theater. The food and service were very good, and was a very good value considering it is located in the heart of the theater district. We will definitely go back.
