Delicious old school French in a lively, loud, crowded environment
The food was really good and the service was attentive. Bone marrow and black burger are a must!!! Really good cocktails
A great place to be at the bar or sit at a table for dinner. Casual but smart.
Always great. Super-fancy pub. Wonderful atmosphere. Good beef-y food.
Outstanding and consistent, every time.
Burger was under salted. There was also a hair in our pâté. Will not be back for a bit
Great burger! Service was also great. Being one of the oldest restaurants in NYC makes the trip to Minetta Tavern worth it due to the ambiance.
ONE OF THE BEST 'LOCAL' BAR-RESTAURANTS I HAVE EVER BEEN TO; FOR A FEELIING LIKE YOU'RE IN 'OLD NEW YORK', YOU CAN'T PICK A BETTER SPOT THAN THE BAR AT MINETTA'S.
Wonderful atmosphere. Had dined here five years ago and remember much better food. For what you pay, even in NYC, it should have been really excellent. But it wasn’t.
The manager was a bit of a blow hard who kept talking at me as I was eating lunch at the bar. He kept talking about “the hustle” that was required in the restaurant business, liberally dropping the f bomb. Very unprofessional. Doubt I’ll return anytime soon.
Loved Minetta Tavern beautiful restaurant fab food great vibe. Steak was cooked perfectly also amazing cocktails
One of New York’s dining gems. A must try is the black label burger... and for dessert either the chocolate soufflé or vanilla grand marnier soufflé. Fabulous service and atmosphere.
Always a great experience.
The warmth and friendliness of the staff was obvious the minute you entered the restaurant. I had one of the best hamburgers of my life perfectly prepared. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and plan to return.
Place was jamming! Server was great we sat on the right had side on the wall passed the bar. Food was excellent duck ravioli
We started w the pate then the burger and duck. Each plate better than the last. Finished it off w chocolate soufflé. Truly an outstanding meal!! Already looking forward to going back. Waiter attentive and nice.
Always a plessure.
The servers were so friendly and the concierge made the night special with his great recommendations. Wonderful atmosphere, a fun spot that always entertains.
We were very disappointed in the food. The Minetta burger had no flavor and was not juicy. Probably made with yesterdays left over meat. I expected to taste the best burger, but this was not worth $31! The fries were delicious but nothing to rave about. I have no reason to ever return to Minetta Tavern.
The black label burger is what it is cracked up to be
One of the best burgers in NY
Great burgers, good service, soppy and salty salad
high end place, good food, not spectacular.. .
worth the price of the overall experience, just don't expect a Wow experience!
Black label burger = one of the best burgers I've ever had and one of the best in NYC. a masterpiece and a must-try for any quality burger enthusiastic. I'll be back for another one every time I'm visiting the big apple! :)
I went to this restaurant when it first opened and was blown away by how great everything was. I tried to go back and couldn't get in. This time, the place was almost empty. The server was very nice, but was hurried. He didn't tell us that the appetizer was small but could be ordered as an entree. The hamburger which the first time I was there was the best I'd had was good, but not extraordinary. The food came within minutes of ordering as if it had been sitting around before we got there. Everything was hurried. Not an enjoyable experience.
I thought the wait staff was pushy, we were waiting for our final guest to arrive and the staff was asking for our order. I asked them to wait until we were all at the table. They were more interested in turning the table for the next reservation. We arrived early so there was no need to push us. The food was mediocre at best. My son had the $31 burger, when comparing it to another burger he ate at Covina, his reaction was the Covina burger was far superior and much less expensive. This is a tourist trap, there are far better dining experiences to be had in NYC. Extremely over priced.
Amazing, simply amazing. The staff at the Minetta Tavern? world class.
Prices are outrageous and don’t measure up. Sorry ☹️
We had a fun evening at Minetta Tavern. The service was excellent, and with the exception of the seemingly random 90s alternative songs that intermittently interrupted the jazz standards, which give the tavern its classic New York feel, the ambiance was quite nice. The steak-frites were peppery and the béarnaise sauce bright and pungent. Though the kitchen could not nail a medium cook on the steak or the burger, both were delicious if doctored up with enough salt, pepper, and other provided condiments. The star was the chocolate soufflé however, which was worth the trip itself.
Thank you for another memorable evening! Great food and most gracious staff.
Very good burger !
Wonderful experience at Minetta Tavern. The staff was excellent and attentive and the food was delicious. The bone marrow appetizer and duck pâté special were both very good and the Black Label Burger really is worth all the hype. It is hands down the best burger I have had in my life. I would go back again just to have that. If you are a burger fan you absolutely owe it to yourself to go try it at least once.
We were celebrating our 10th anniversary and had a great time! Very lively and great people watching. The food was excellent, especially the bone marrow.
Exactly what you want, exactly how you want it
Vacation with my family and I wanted to take them to my favorite place to eat in NTC.
Went for the famous black Angus hamburger, which turned to be the best piece of meat ever! Special mention for the buttered oysters, simply sublime. Warmly recommended to anyone looking for quality food and great taste. Thumbs up!
Wife and I went for anniversary. Waiter and staff very friendly, informative and spread everything out perfectly before our comedy show. Bone Marrow with a salad was a great starter. Wife had Filet Mignon paired with spinach and mashed potato which were excellent. I had the Bone in NY Strip which was also excellent. Old school New York feel only adds to the experience. Great way to celebrate our wedding anniversary! Minetta is always a delicious meal!
The food was great, and the staff was phenomenal. Everyone worked as a team to support all/any needs. We took a while to decide on our food choices, but as soon as someone recognized we were ready, they came over to check and took our order. This was the same for filling water, replacing a drink, helping to move the table to get in/out, etc. They really catered to us to make it an enjoyable experience. We left full and happy.
Too noisy, too much crowded
Steak was too salty
Both the food and the service were excellent.
Amazing service and the Black label Burger is the best that I have ever had. Would definitely recommend this place.
