I had lunch here and my salad came in about five minutes! Not sure if it was already prepared but even the waiter was surprised when he delivered it. I enjoyed the salad. My MIL had the grilled eggplant sandwich which wasn't so good. She said "it tasted like it was made with Ragu sauce". We had a table next to the window. It was fun to look at Bryant Park and people watch.

I ate here for lunch today with a couple female friends, and we all loved it. The restaurant is beautiful and spacious and has a calming atmosphere. The food was delicious, and our waitress was very nice. If you order iced tea, they refill it during the meal as if it's coffee or water. The calamari/avocado salad was surprisingly good, and the bananas for bananas dessert was everything you could ever want. It's an expensive restaurant, but if you have the money and want a nice lunch, I recommend it.

Decided to eat here last night before the tree lighting. We tried to get a seat by the window for obvious reasons but unfortunitly those tables had been booked in advance. This was not a problem, but the reaction of the hostess was to talk down to us in a very rude manner as if we were to know in advance that this was the case. However, after that quick bad experience, everything else went quite smoothly. Excellent and attentive waitress. The food was on point , as was the price.

The Best part of Bryant Park Grill was the view. The wide windows make you a part of the parks beautiuful view with the space and decor. The down side, the wine glasses were dirty. They didn't check and they arrive with lipstick stains on the glasses. The food was average really over priced. The best part of the meal was the dessert. I won't return because I was with a guest to NYC and other than the view, there wasn't any added value.

I tried several dishes on the menu. The food was average, at best. The scenery, location, and decor are definitely top notch, however. The duck tasted a tad over cooked, however, it was seasoned well. The tuna and salmon tartar tasted fishy, and lacked any real sign of quality. The raw bar for two was tasty, but again, lacked any real sign of quality in the seafood. I would return for a business meal, but it's not somewhere I would want to take family or friends to expect a quality New York meal. It's a great place to enjoy the scenery of the park, but go somewhere else for culinary excellence.

We had spent a very long Friday, getting from Chicago to New York, during a downpour. To further compound our misery the hotel did not have our room ready! We decided to grab dinner at the Bryant Park Grill in an attempt to at least end the day on a sane note. We had not been to New York for many years. The cab driver dropped us off a block away affording us an opportunity to really enjoy the deluge which was ongoing. We were instantly seated in a corner booth with the qualification that this was a special table for lovers only(We are coming up on 40 years of marriage!). The service was wonderful. The food was fantastic. We sat there marvelling at the ambience of this oasis. We returned a number of times, during our stay, to Bryant Park. We'd alight there, sip our drinks and enjoy the city of New York, represented in all its glory, by this wonderful location

Last night my friends and I were at the outside portion having a few drinks. My other friend came with his baby and the bouncers FORCED us to leave the restaurant stating that it was against their rules and inappropriate to have a baby there. We were made to pay for our drinks that we just received, and were escorted, rather rudely, off the premises. And not only were the bouncers rude yesterday, but the bartenders always lack any personality and courtesy, and on top of that, the food is mediocre. You can be assured that my friends and I will NOT be going back and will be sure to tell everyone we know not to go there as well. It is a terrible shame as we work right across the street and we will have to patronize another restaurant/bar. Lucky them...we go out alot,!
