One of my favorite NY restaurants!! The menu keeps changing according to what's in season, the food is creative and soo delicious!! If you don't want to do the formal tasting menu the tavern is more casual food is still excellent but be there early because the don't take reservations and the line can be long!

Wonderful birthday dinner for a friend, one of the significant ending in a 0 birthdays.
Our server Danielle was friendly and knowledgeable. Gramercy Tavern always makes you feel welcomed and comfortable. Wine pair your courses, always a pleasant surprise and introductions to wines you may never have tasted.

Gramercy Tavern is consistently listed as one of New York City's favorite restaurants, so I wanted to love it. I didn't. I felt lost in the center of the spacious dining room and rushed throughout dinner. An off night? Most likely. I'd happily return to reconsider.

One of the best restaurants in Manhattan. The space is beautiful, with abundant fresh flowers. The service is first-rate. And the food is delicious. You will have a memorable experience here.

I may have lost track of how many courses we ate, but I didn't forget how incredible it was. Gramercy Tavern is a sophisticated spot where you feel like royalty and eat like a king. Every nibble of food seemed to have a purpose to it, and the delicate little tastings were perfectly orchestrated course after course. Truly an experience.

I know that this place is on the top of many lists ranking NYC restaurants, but it really is that good. I enjoy sitting in the tavern room and trying something off the vintage beer list while eating the smoked kielbasa.

I have such fond memories from working at this restaurant and the smell of the wood-burning grill in the front room. This is an amazing place for a drink at the bar or for catching up with old friends over a delicious dinner!

One of New York's best restaurants, and a serious class act. Great wine list and really top-notch service.

Amazing food and cozy atmosphere. Great place to sip a glass of wine with your honey, or have a soup before heading home after a long day at the office.

Designed by Bentel & Bentel with beautiful murals by Robert Kushner, this restaurant is truly the hub of history in Gramercy. You will find beautiful antiques in every room to complete the overall feel. Though it may seem like a splurge to dine here, it is a memorable experience that your kids will talk about for years. The classic American cuisine that is served with a contemporary twist is worth every penny!

Well worth the hype. 3 tasting menus in the dining room, starting at a very reasonable $88 per person. (I'm told that the lounge area has an a la caret menu) Service was flawless. Complimentary bread and yummy amuses. I enjoyed everything - in particular, this complimentary dessert that tasted like a creamsicle. Would definitely go back!

love going here when it get's cold in New York.. so cozy, lovely area -no tourists and sometimes its even quiet ( i know, hard to find in NYC).. expensive drinks but they have seasonal cocktails and they are oh sooooo good. Nice staff, food goes without saying- exceptional..make sure to make a reservation!

Pricey, very. But, if you're in the mood to splurge or it's a special occasion, I HIGHLY recommend this place. Service is impeccable, all the foods are masterpieces and the ambiance is perfect for a romantic night. Go, now!

Amazing food, amazing service. Doesn't have the stuffy suit and tie feel, comforting and welcoming. Whether you get the coursed or tasting menu, make sure to get the smoked trout! The best thing on their menu, never had smoked anything like it, melts in your mouth. I personally prefer their coursed as it's plenty of food and you have choices, where the tasting is set. Their cocktails are delicious, even the non-alcoholic ones (and only 5$??? that's the price of a coke at most nice restaurants). Oh and their bread.... mmmm

Reliably great and always a good pick for out-of-town visitors, Gramercy Tavern is a solid, if not thrilling bet. Crowded and loud at night, this might not be a great bet for those who have trouble hearing, but lunch is more quiet and is also a bargain.

American fare to make you sleep soundly (food coma). The Gramercy is a famous NYC eatery, and for very good reason. There’s a price fix or you can order off the menu--either way you’re in for a real treat.

sublime, consistent, and not stuffy.. the staff earns their keep, when in doubt, be honest of what you like and put it on cruise control. They know better than you... especially for all the "wine experts" their sommelier or ones in training have it covered. eating in the front room is one of the best kept secrets in NYC, convience and value - trevor vaughan
