This is a fun little find. We went Sunday for lunch, which turned into their Brunch menu. the menu was limited compared to what we'd found online. We sat in the back and could hear the music, but couldn't see it. A pancake was $16,...my burger was $18 and $5 for fries. I'd call it a bit pricy. The kitchen staff was prompt, but our service probably fell into the less than attentive/poor category. The pancake my son ordered was probably one of the best I've ever had. The fry portion was small, the beers were $11. I didn't expect to drop $200 for lunch, but that's what happened. It was a very cute place though.More

My wife and I have been coming here for years, and after a long, covid-related delay since our last visit came back and of course still love Tanner's. Faves? Buffalo chicken spring rolls, THE BEST BLT!, mac & cheese and just about anything else. The...folks here are also the coolest, and we just met Monica our server (and manager) who was soo nice, fun, friendly & attentive. LOVE THIS PLACE!!More

I came in to this place once or twice just before lockdown hit! Clare was our bartender she was so positive about the whole thing and just so lovely. She made us amazing cocktails and just made us so annoyed we couldn’t come straight back...to this bar!! A hidden gem in midtown New York. Ask for Clare.More

We had brunch at Tanner Smith's before seeing a show at NY City Center. The atmosphere is lively but not too loud, just a lovely buzz.....there was a jazz combo right in the bar area. We sat in the back of the restaurant and had...a delightful brunch. The waitress was attentive and very pleasant though she was busy. The food was delicious! We have already recommended the place to people and will definitely go back....More

A very lively place that allows you to sink back and relax while you have a great and inventive cocktail and casual fare. It's billed as a speakeasy but the decor and atmosphere aren't indicative of the 20's. Great service and go for the cocktails.

We had a great Saturday morning brunch in this place. We were seated in the back, which was quite quiet compared to the front. Try the duck confit, absolutely delicious!

This spot is so visually stunning I couldn’t stop admiring all of the decor touches. Even the bathrooms were spotless and so very pretty. We enjoyed cocktails in tiki cups, Sauv blanc from NZ and beer. Pretzels and a lovely dessert to celebrate my friend’s...birthday. The service was so efficient and professional. To our surprise some fantastic live music started up. It was the perfect experience.More
