Go to the front room, where they take no reservations so come as near to opening at 11.45AM as possible, and you will love the surroundings and the food. The service is impeccable, even though somewhat slow. Their fish dishes host a combination of vegetables...More

Highly recommend! Superb food, great service and an amazing setting with the most beautiful floral arrangements I've ever seen! I had the burger on special and it's possibly the best I've ever had! Pricers weren't too bad either.

The dress code is business casual. Seems black leather jacket should be fine. Enjoy your time there.

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.
