Magical is a word thrown around a lot when discussing Tavern On The Green and one can’t help but feel magic in the air. Jim and David, architect Richard Lewis and landscape architect Robin Key, preserved the Victorian/ Gothic elegance of the semi-circular building; it is authentic, natural, elegant and sexy. It has been re-built to spectacular precision and the décor is of a grand farmhouse one might find on the property of an Italian Villa or a historic Hudson River Valley mansion.

Dress Code:

We arrived early for our lunch reservation. So glad we did. It gave us a chance to enjoy some wonderful cocktails and meet the nicest, friendliest staff members. Our first trip did not disappoint, food and all staff was amazing! Will plan on going there every time we’re in NYC.

It was beautifully. Decorated. My daughter and friend had celebrated their 13th birthdays there. This was their 50th. A beautiful reunion and fond memory revisited. So much has not changed except all of us.

I made a reservation for lunch on December 10. The restaurant was decorated very tastefully in Christmas decor. I was greeted at the door immediately by a friendly staff member. I had a short wait because I was early. I ordered the crab cake, creamed potatoes and sautéed spinach. Each item was prepared deliciously. Presentation was excellent. I did not order any alcohol. The ambiance is lovely. I ate there 20 years ago and had an equally wonderful experience. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are a NYC visitor or resident.

The ambience was romantic and festive. Our waiter was knowledgeable and prompt. We had a nice time visiting with the patrons around us. The food was delicious! We had the bone-in ribeye and it was cooked perfectly. Tavern on the Green never disappoints!

Service for the dinner was outstanding. Food was phenomenal. Noise level however was high. For a person like me with hearing issues it was a bit painful. But no issues with food or service

We were sitting at a table where there was a bit of a draft. When we mentioned it, the manager came over and offered to give us our desserts for free. The waitress was very friendly an£ helpful.

One of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. I had a reservation for two and waited 20 minutes after my booked reservation before I was finally seated. The restaurant was so loud and dark. Both of us were seated in the bar area where we made our reservation for, becuase we looked at the bar menu ahead of time and liked it best. Once we were seated, our waiter Max M, told us the specials and gave us our menus. After looking over it, we still liked the bar menu we saw online better. When Max M our waiter came back we asked if we could see the bar menu. He told us "No, you can not have that menu here". We were so disappointed so we settled on just an appetizer since the menu really didn't have a good or wide selection of things. Then, an older couple was seated next to us. They happened to be the parents of the singer that night. She came and said hi to them and told them to order off the bar menu. When Max M returned to take their order, they asked if they could have the bar menu. Max M said "Certainly, let me go get that for you". We confronted Max M about this situation when he returned to pick up our tab and said he was "unaware". What a lie. He was trying to get us to spend more money by ordering off the more expensive dinner menu. What an atrocious thing to do. It was so unacceptable and I will never have a good word to say about this restaurant because of his actions. He should be reprimanded by management. I don't recommended this restaurant to anyone.

Beautiful and fabulous location, Central Park. Ambiance was great! Tavern feel in the bar but with some awesome class. Dinning area was beautiful, all the holiday decor added to its appeal. Food was delicious! Best NY Cheesecake we had on our trip!

I've always wanted to try Tavern on the Green and it did not disappoint. When we first walk in there is a lounge area crammed full of people. Don't let this foul you; when they take you back to the table area its much calmer. Everything is decorated beautifully for Christmas and really puts you in the holiday spirit. The service was wonderful and the food was amazing. Definitely worth the price!

Tavern was amazing, the waitstaff was super nice, and the food was great. I had requested to be seated near the windows as it was my husbands first time in NYC and it was birthday, and Tavern delivered. We had a beautiful table and everyone told him happy birthday. Definitely a spot to visit during the holidays and for fun!

Definitely a bucket list 'must do' at least once when traveling to NYC. Located in the middle of Central Park it has an unparalleled ambiance. The food and drinks are what you would expect from a 5 star restaurant. We had the prixe-fixe Sunday brunch. A bit pricey for 3 course meal, but we were NOT disappointed!

There are no words for this experience. We had the most delicious Birthday brunch for my husband. The food was delicious and service was outstanding. TOTG exceeded our expectations and the Christmas decor was perfect !! Five stars seems inadequate . Such a beautiful place in Central Park.

I love attending this brunch every year..the atmosphere is great the service is always attentive and the food is phenomenal. The only negative I would have is the price, I think if you're going to charge $70 a person for this meal, I think would make sense to provide one drink, including alcohol should be included. I believe in the past a mimosa was offered, why was that taken away? I suggest bringing that back, add in a Bellini as a choice. Something would be nice. Other than that a great time was had by all, thank you!

Great place to eat. High end, traditional dining. Wait a minute. It's New York. Probably considered typical (price) dining. Will be back, but sparingly. Cost 2 to 3 times what a typical dinner costs us.

When we made reservations we were told we would be sitting at the bar, and we were seated it was in the main restaurant! That would’ve been fine if we were told prior that it was a prix fixed menu at $70 per person. Not what we wanted!
