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: Smart Casual. Jacket and Tie are Not Required.
Please note: We do not permit sleeveless shirts for gentlemen nor athletic/running/jogging attire for any patrons in the main restaurant.

    Had the hamburger, delicious. However fries that came with it were cold. By the time I got new ones, my burger was finished. Nothing was offered, not even an apology and that could have been handled better. But in general a nice ambiance.

    The food was amazing. We went yet again for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We got married there as well. Although the décor is much more modern now adays the ambiance and energy still allude to it's famed history. I got the dry aged steak and my wife got the scallops. Both were amazing but my wife couldn't stop raving about the Truffle Parmesan Fries, which apparently trumped all. Our server, Madison, made our evening extra special. Can't wait to go back. Truly Iconic <3

    We arrived at our reservation time and were seated right away. The service was excellent: the server explained the menu, made recommendations, and was attentive without being cloying. The food was delicious. The price was very reasonable. The only annoyances were a bratty child sitting next to us, and that the portion sizes were so large that we had no room for dessert. Next time we will skip the appetizer and save room for what appeared to be an incredible selection of cakes and ice creams.

    The food is a bit overpriced for the value but would be acceptable if the restaurant allowed minor substitutions. Couldn’t order the entree I wanted as I didn’t care for the vegetable that came with the meal.

    We had a wonderful lunch at Tavern on the Green on Monday and we owe it all to our server, Nikolai! He is the kind of sever you want when you go out to eat. He was personable, friendly, and attentive. He made me laugh which I always appreciate. We also have to give a shout out to our patient hostesses as we were very indecisive about whether we wanted to eat inside or outside. The chefs at Tavern on the Green are skilled and talented. Our meals were absolutely delicious. I got the ravioli and ate the entire bowl! Thank you Nikolai for an incredible Tavern on the Green experience. We can’t wait to return :)

    Anniversary Breakfast! The first table was near the kitchen and the room was warm and uncomfortable. We requested to be moved outside. The patio table was unstable, and that was promptly corrected. We ordered breakfast “Eggs Benedict” and it was brought out right away! However the eggs were cold and the English muffin was tough to cut even with a knife. Obviously it had been prepared for a while and not freshly made. Next my husband ordered coffee; the cup had obviously spilled over and was dripping, but our waitress didn’t bother to provide a fresh cup….not very appealing. This restaurant is supposed to be a NY icon at Central Park, but we were highly disappointed. How does this place mess up breakfast?? The only upside is that one of the breakfast was removed from the bill. Needless to say this restaurant is overrated and overpriced…. if I have to be honest. Don’t need to visit again or recommend!

    Tavern on the Green is all about the location and the experience. If you can eat outside it is beautiful on lovely day. The only downside is that if you make reservations for outside, and the weather turns out bad, you are not guaranteed a seat inside. For this reason, we sat in the glass room which has an amazing view of the patio. The downside of our trip was the service. We ordered the pastry basket and had to ask for plates. A friend ordered soup and had to request a spoon. Another friend ordered a soda and was charged for every glass (no free refills). These are little things that did not damage our meal but if they cast a small shadow on the overall experience that could have been superior.
