    My mom first took me to Sardi’s and the theater when I was five years old. I am now retired. I have taken many people for their first Sardi’s experience through the years and they always love it. Tonight was no exception! I have to have the cannelloni at least once a year! Again last night, delicious food, fantastic Broadway ambience and the best waitstaff!

    Sardi’s is the quintessential Broadway theater dining experience - - a great start to an evening of theater. The place is also dripping with drama and musical Broadway. The famous caricatures of famous celebrity actors adorn all the dining rooms. The mayors of nyc going back to Jimmy Walker shine over the main dining room and the intimate Sardi’s bar, where you just might meet one of your favorite actors - - or critics. The food, service and drinks are excellent, delicious and reasonable.

    Dined at Sardi’s years ago and had a great meal. This time around it was the complete opposite. Bread was cold and dry. Butter cold and hard to spread. Onion soup was good, chicken soup was fair. My husband’s pasta entree was bland and my salmon entree was mushy and tasteless. We ordered an apple crumb cake for dessert that was dry and tasteless. The only positive thing about our dinner was it was across the street from the theatre we were going to.

    This is a perfect pre-theater spot. They know exactly what they're doing, the service is excellent (Madeline, you made our night), and the food is very good. It's not a hot spot and you will see an older, more touristy crowd, but I also don't think you're in Times Square for the hot spots.

    Hadn’t been to Sardi’s in 20+ years. Love the atmosphere, the food is very good, and the service - attentive. That said, with so many other choices, other than being that traditional place, there are other places just as good.

    Reliable, albeit pricey, pre and post theatre restaurant. The food's not the most exciting, but never terrible. $9 for a coffee is a bit ridiculous. Regardless, we are likely to return. Service was quite good.

    A great preshow meal. A fabulous iconic setting and location that also shined bright in food and staff. Our server Ellie was the best and took great care of us. They are very attentive of timing for patrons to make it to their shows without being obnoxious or pushy. As soon as I told friends were were lucky enough to get reservations, I knew I had made a good choice.

    Sardi’s is venerable. For pre-theatre dinner or for a matinee the food is calibrated for quick preparation. We had lovely oysters, cannelloni stuffed with beef and veal with a delicious white bechamel sauce, and an appetizer platter for two which brought Bruschetta; Prosciutto and Melon; Asparagus Rolled in Smoked Salmon; Roasted Bell Peppers; Mozzarella, Capers; Grilled Shrimp with Green Olive Tapenade. Heavenly, especially when cocktails are perfectly chilled. The caricatures are funny and bring smiles to all patrons. Great spot, Sardi’s. We’ll go again!

    We have eaten at Sardi's many times. The food is always good and usually the service is excellent. But this time we were disappointed. Our waiter seemed distracted. The table was not bused properly. Dishes were left behind; my empty beer bottle sat until the meal was over. We ordered dessert and immediately the waiter brought our check and left it on the table before he even brought dessert. We understand that the prices are a little high because you are paying for the name, good food AND excellent service. We left disappointed and are not sure we will return.

    I honestly wasn't sure what to expect, it seemed like reviews alternated between "loved it" and "what a disappointment"... Fortunately, we had a great experience! Sardi's is just steps away from the St. James Theater on Broadway, where we saw a matinee of Spamalot. I'd made reservations for 4:30, and the timing worked out perfectly. Our table of 5 was seated in a great corner table, where we had fun trying to identify the many caricatures near our table. Service was prompt and friendly, and our meals were delicious! I'm so glad we opted to dine here!

    Was hoping to LOVE our dinner here - since it’s always hyped up as such a famous restaurant. Sadly, the decor was more of its appeal than the food quality. For the price it was very average and honestly I’ve had better food at the Marriott. Service was good and they did every thing to make sure we were out on time before our Broadway show. Probably would not recommend this for a return again.

    Sardi's is always a wonderful way to start an evening of theatre in New York. The food is fresh and delicious; the service is first-rate, hospitable, genuinely caring, and friendly; and the atmosphere really can't be beat with Sardi's iconic portraits and caricatures of Broadway's finest through history. Being a native New Yorker, Sardi's stays high on my list for a great night out on the town. Thanks Sardi's Team!

    The service was good but the food and drink were bad. We got a few different cocktails. All were very poor quality. The espresso martini was probably one of the worst I've ever had. We got a variety of dishes. The kale salad and oysters were good. The French onion soup was ok, not good exactly. The filet mignon was gray in color and - no joke - literally unseasoned. I was stunned. Bolognese was also very bad, microwave quality. I'm usually not this harsh but the prices were very high.
