“Delicious food. One of our best meals in NY”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

The attention was good, the thai beer was reasonably priced, short wait times, waiters were friendly. We have nothing to complain of about Lantern.

“Elegant atmosphere, prompt service, delicious food!!!”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

Happened upon this place last week. I love Thai food, and had no idea this was Thai until I read the menu at the door. It was crowded, but we sat at the bar to wait for a table and we browsed the menu. It's very pretty inside and well-laid out. We got a nice corner table and ordered right away. Our food came out in record time and was delicious! The service was quick and courteous. We loved this place and will go back when we can!

“Average Food, Indifferent Service”
Reviewed June 28, 2010

There really is nothing special about this place, other than its location on a quiet stretch of Second Avenue at 18th Street in Grammercy. The food is typical, mid-priced Thai fare. Apart from a few standout appetizers, there is nothing on this menu that is either new or different from the ubiquitous Thai restaurants that dot the NYC restaurant landscape.

Service is slow and tedious. Dishes come out haphazardly. Our waiter forgot a diet coke and had to be reminded three times who ordered what. Not worth the effort.

“Don't miss it if you're in the neighborhood”
Reviewed December 28, 2009

We eat a fair amount of Thai food and found Lantern to be unusually good - everything served hot and fresh. Some of the accompanying salads were combinations we have never seen before. Banana Tempura for dessert was sublime, and they serve real Green Tea Ice Cream - not that minty stuff you run into in so many places. Atmosphere is pleasant, service acceptable, but go there for the FOOD!
