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.

“A Perfect Anniversary Treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Gramercy tavern and it was absolutely perfect.

The food was fantastic and the service impeccable. In my opinion, you won't find a better place for a lunch or dinner experience and that won't cost you the earth. This was my second time at the Gramercy and the same level of style, sophistication and service was there.

I had mentioned in booking that it was our anniversary and they went all out to make it a special occasion. Thank you again!

Very tasty food in a great setting. The clams were delicious and the burger on special was just what I wanted. Well recommended.

“finally”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

After several attempts to dine here, we finally made it, and it was worth the wait. It`s pre-fixe and pricey, but worth every penny. We had a 10:30 pm reservation on a Friday night(reservations do not come easily or early) and were seated a little earlier than that and then were treated to one of the best meals we have ever had anywhere. Service was prompt, polite, and knowledegable and the food was outstanding. The courses were extremely well presented and very imaginative, and of course delicious. A few extra touches with unexpected food additions made the night just that much better. It`s no secret why this restaurant is so popular. Make this a definite stop on your next dining out.

“Has never let us down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

We have been lucky enough to visit New York a number of times over the last years, and always try to fit in a visit to Gramercy Tavern. The food is always excellent and imaginative, the service always friendly - on our most recent trip the waiter providing us with an additional dessert as he wanted to show us his recommendation was right ! Our meal here is always a highlight of our trip.

“Incomparable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Absolutely incomparable. The place is idyllic and the food and service were near perfect. My wife and I enjoyed a lovely romantic dinner at the bar, where we were treated like regulars.
