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.

“Gramercy never disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

This was a wonderful dining experience from the service to the food to the atmosphere. Our server, Alvaro, was just first rate. The lamb was prepared different ways. All were excellent and the shoulder was absolutely fabulous. The other entrée was the pork and that, too, was excellent. Caramel ice cream is outstanding. Actually, I can't say enough about this place. It is my favorite NYC restaurant and they treat you like you are the only customer and the food is always excellent. No question we will be back.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Went here for dinner. Booked in advance as I had read a few reviews and it sounded like it was worth a visit.

I loved it!

The service was the highlight. It was friendly and attentive but discreet and non-intrusive. I would say it was the best service i've ever experienced in a restaurant. The food and atmosphere were lovely.

I will definitely return on my next visit.

“Simply Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Excellent all-around doesn't really describe the sublime ambience, cuisine and service at this lovely restaurant. Haven't dined here before, it was a pleasure to return. Suffice to say, the evening did not disappoint in any way. Excellent wine list, too.

“prix fixe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

We love this place yet it's very difficult to get a table or a seat at the bar. We recommend the prix fixe for a delicious, romantic dinner that you can reserve in advance.

“One of my favourite bars in the world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

I review the TAVERN. Not the restaurant. It is, without doubt, my 'go to' place in Manhattan. Great ambience, staff, food, service, wine list etc.... etc.... Whether you sit at the bar or at a table in the tavern the 'buzz' is just perfect. Go there!
