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. These items are permitted at Tavern To Go Outdoor Seating Area.

Great atmosphere located in central park. Service was really good, food was also great. Enjoyed the rack of lamp and short ribs. Mac and cheese was excellent too! For apps we enjoyed the chopped salad and cold watermelon gazpacho soup. Excellent birthday cake for dessert. Would highly recommend.

We ate many times at the old “Tavern” but this was our first visit to the new and improved version. The space is magnificent, the food superb and the service beyond excellent. Our server, Omar, was attentive and friendly. He made the already lovely experience even more enjoyable.

My friend and I were going to a show and had late night dinner reservations, so we chose to order only apps at TOTG. The food was good, and except for the (1) crab cake she got, the portion sizes were excellent for apps. My drink, Green on the Green, was refreshing and enjoyable. But unfortunately, you are paying for the name. The food was good - not excellent. The drink was good - not amazing. The ambiance is upscale and indulgent, but not decadent. We were dressed appropriately, but when there are men eating in dingy white undershirts and shorts, it takes away from the atmosphere. I wish it wasn’t so exorbitantly priced because I would like to try dining in a different section and for a larger meal. But the price will keep me away the next time I’m in NY. I’m glad I at least tried it.

The glass area we were seated in for lunch was hot and so bright you needed sunglasses. They need to have some type of shading for this area. With all of the innovative options they have now I don’t understand why they haven’t addressed this issue. The people near us felt the same way.

We were celebrating the bday of our friend who is undergoing her treatment for breast cancer and her celebration was made special by the excellent service that the staff provided to us. The food was delicious and the service was efficient. Thank you for making her bday special.

Ordentliches Essen in nostalgischem Ambiente. Leider nicht besonders kreativ und ohne besondere Raffinesse. Der Nachtisch war aber sehr lecker! Ansonsten aber excellenter Service, auch mit Kind.

Thank you for reopening your doors! I had always wanted to go to Tavern on the Green, and what a delight it was. I think there's a little something for everyone -- from the food to the ambiance of the different rooms. I look forward to returning, perhaps seated outside next time with the beautiful overhead lights above.

Located in Central Park, this place delivers a beautiful ambiance as well as top rated food. If available, sit outside or inside the atrium. Oysters were fresh, the chicken under a brick delicious as well as the salmon. Nice wine list. Will be back!

The vegetarian dish was bland, just a pile of roasted veggies. With the growing number of vegan diners, you should put more effort into a delicious meal for those who don’t eat meat!

Tavern on the Green is a beautiful restaurant. Beyond it's beauty, I find it to be overpriced and I would more gladly accept that if the food was outstanding but it really wasn't. Our burgers (beef and salmon) lacked flavor. The sides, fries, sweet potato fries and truffle mac and cheese were delicious.

As a New Yorker with out of town guests I was hesitant to go to Tavern on the Green as I know it to be a very touristy place with not particularly outstanding food. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food for brunch and my guests enjoyed themselves.

Tavern on the Green was the perfect spot for a beautiful brunch with my mother & sister. The staff is incredibly friendly and the environment is welcoming! The food was good but could definitely use some upgrades. Due to the name and of course beautiful location the restaurant does not disappoint. However, I wish their food menu items lived up to the hype of its name.

Tavern on the Green is always a quintessential New York experience for those initiating to the city. We enjoyed dinner on the gorgeous patio right before the lights went out! Fortunately our server was a pro and able to check us out with an "old school" card runner. The food is a bit drab; the kitchen could certainly be more liberal in their use of salt, herbs and spices.

We arrived early for our reservation but were still seated immediately, asked for indoors but changed our mind when heard how loud it was inside and was moved to the outdoor garden which was PERFECT! Great service, great drinks, great food, great little band. Thank you! Nice gift shop, too.
