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.

My husband and I spend a dinner at Gramercy Tavern to enjoy a special night in New York. We booked the dinner well in advance, prior to our NY trip since this is a popular spot for the weekend.

The restaurant has a more basic section with a more casual bar menu and the upscale restaurant. We chose the restaurant and I have to say we had a fantastic night. The 4 course dinner was amazing and good value for money, the service explendid and of course the wines and drinkes, too!

I can highly recommand this place!

Enjoy!

A must when in NYC. We had the seasonal tasting menu and everything was delicious. From the moment we walked in everything was perfect.

We opted for dining in the vibrant tavern area with a much more casual setting as opposed to the dining room. Different menus for both -- more inexpensive tasting menu in the tavern -- but it's also first come first served so you can expect to wait.

Tasting Menu ($48)
- fluke tartare
- duck consommé with buckwheat dumplings and root vegetables
- grilled and braised flat iron steak with sunchoke, quinoa and hazelnuts
- lemon icebox pie with chocolate hazelnut crumbs

I enjoyed all of the food thoroughly. Because we weren't too crazy about the lemon icebox pie upon reading the description, we asked if we could opt out and choose a dessert from the a la carte menu which they happily let us do. We ended up selecting the sticky toffee cake and pumpkin whoopie pies which were both delicious. Despite our reservations on the lemon icebox pie our server gave one to us anyway, gratis, because he thought it was a great dessert and that we really should try it. He was right, it was very good.

Good food and friendly, topnotch service.

The place has a nice ambient, good service, and a fixed price meal for a 3 course menu... The first of two were great... Starter flavours were brilliantly balanced.... Well combined and interesting... Main course.. Also great... Albeit a little "American sized" but good also... Our dissapointment was dessert.... Anything with a michellin star should be very careful wheputting somethign with peanut butter on the dessert menu... Sadly Gramercy Taberns dessert were not conmesurate with the rest... And frankly belonged more at Denny's Dinner.... Than here..... And certainly for the price of the dinner (125-150usd per person) ... Really not good enough and not somewhere we would go back to.

Gramercy Tavern definitely lived up to our expectations. The food and wait staff were both first class. We had the prix fixe menu for $88 a person. We also had them add one of the specialty appetizers as a mid-course pasta dish. The staff is eager to make your visit special and even helped us pair a delicious wine with our meal (the extensive wine list is a little overwhelming!) If you're celebrating a special occasion (we were there for our anniversary) make sure to tell them when you make a reservation. They gave us a complimentary glass of sparkling wine when we sat down and an extra dessert dish with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate sauce. Two thumbs up!!
