Agern is located in Grand central and is great for lunch, you can literally walk off the train and into the restaurant. I was shocked that this place was in grand central. We had a nice tasting menu. It was not extremely expensive and the...food was really good. The service was impeccable! Hats off to a great staffMore

Being a Danish couple in NYC on Valentine where else to go. So booked the valentine menu with paring wine, so we only had to show up, and 5 min early we arrived , greeted by a hostess she guided us to the Checkin counter..., where we handed in our winther jackets and a new hostess seated us , the arrival was so perfect , at least four staff had asked us “how are you tonight “ and we where fine dressed elegant but casual and blended in, and then it started fantastic food with great wines , some choices I would newer had dared “red carbonated wine” to a whit fish superb - and the sourdough bread with lobster was more than fantastic, the Danish cherry wine for the dessert was maybe not the best choice , there are better Danish dessert wine to choose from. All in all a fantastic valentine, THANKS.More

One of the best restaurant in NYC I’ve ever visited. Very tasty food and good service. Amazing interior. Recommend ✅

We took the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Almost $800 with tip for 2 people. I have to say this was bland and unexceptional food. And the wines, all domestic and largely from NY, were not worth the $100 for the paring. The decor...is Ikea meets TGIF. No complaints in respect that each dish was OK, but nothing memorable or noteworthy. For $100/person maybe. But $400/person? Really not worth it.More

In case you are looking for something special to have for lunch or dinner- here we go. Nicely located a little bit hofieren in GrandCentral, the Agern offers innovative dishes prepared with local produce. Wine is largely all American (NY state; California admittedly is still...4 flight hours from New York). The waiters wear fancy „farming clothes“ and are quite eloquent. I enjoyed the bluefish followed by the lobster - really nice and a good price as well. It gets a bit noisy when busy - but this is perhaps specific for the city. I know Denmark quite well - this is not genuine Danish kitchen, but resembles that a bit, anyway, enjoyable.More

My husband and I and our friends have only had wonderful experiences at Agern, which serves unique and refreshingly prepared food. The prix fixe menu for week-day lunch is a relative bargain for a one-star Michelin restaurant. Servers are attentive and friendly. The ambiance is...calm and the location is central and convenient in NYC.More

I am a native New Yorker who enjoys dining out and Agern is my pre theater, in the neighborhood go to place for outstanding and flavorful food served by a very welcoming staff. Dining dining with no attitude. Delicious fresh baked hot bread and homemade...butter greets you at your table followed by the freshest flavorful ingredients perfectly prepared. Worth every dollar. A NYC GEM, I always take guests and they fall in love.More

Everything triple AAA. Unbelievable food in terms of the dish conceptions and gorgeous executions. This is a hidden gem with extraordinary cocktails, wines, service and unexpectedly delicious food that is brilliantly conceived and absolutely delicious. A place for a special experience in all ways.

One of the best spots in the City - try the vegetarian options, really exceptionally good (not saying the rest is not)
