Excellent value, great service, good food for the price!

Aside from good location (right on the park), this restaurant doesnt really have that much to offer. The food is bland and, most of the time, totally sub-par. We've even had corporate parties here and the event management people are not so great at customer service. The most this restaurant has going for it is the location (and outdoor space).

We are in NYC 4 times a year mostly on business and stay 3-4 days each trip. We walk past Bryant Park several times each trip and always say that we will eat there sometime. Well, we went for lunch there on our last day and had a great meal outside on the patio. The service was a tad slow but it was lunch time and they were slammed. Now I wished that we had taken the time to have dined there before. It will definitely be on our list of dining establishments to vist on our trips.

Requested a medium rare hamburger, came back medium well. When I asked why my burger was medium well, the guy told me they don't know how to cook medium rare. Girlfriend ordered seared tuna and the tuna was ice cold. Doesn't the word sear imply that it was heated up? What is the deal with that place? Nice location, good beer, but the food is outrageous in price and barely edible.

I really want to love the Bryant Park Grill. It's next to my job, has reasonable, inventive and delicious dishes, and the people watching is second to none. It's a real shame that the service is so subpar. You have to beg for water, and forget about a refill. The waiter is completely inattentive, and if you're lucky, you'll be able to spot him long enough to tackle him for the check. I go back, yes, but every time I get more and more frustrated by the completely inadequate service. They're just lucky they have everything else going for them.

This is the first time we ate at Bryant Park Grill on 4/20/07 and cannot wait to return. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. We had the special which was "pink salmon trout" with mushroom risotto. Everything was fantastic. They also had little buttons of vegetables which we cannot wait to duplicate for the kids. The fish was so fresh there was absolutely no fishy taste, it was very light and delicate. The risotto was very good along (very cheese-y). We plan to make this a must do for our next trip into the city.

I'm from Philly and go to NYC several times a year with two picky kids (age 9 and 12) to visit their 94 year old great grandmother and take in the museums/sights. It's been a challenge to find restuarants that we can all agree upon. We went to a very early seating (we arrived at 5:30) and had a *lovely* time. We got a kick out of walking there amongst the 5 o'clock foot traffic and past the Library -- the boys got a kick out of noting it's situated nothing like in the movie "Day After Tomorrow" and that there was no way a huge ship could've floated past... Because of the early hour, we were seated straightaway at a table near the windows so we could look out over the Park and people-watch. The service was surprisingly prompt and the staff were quite nice! There was a small basket of chunked breads and rolls (tasty!) to nibble on, and cocktail service as we awaited our meals. While there is no "children's menu" per se (as we had read on another website), the boys had the grilled chicken (and no to-do from Mssrs Picky about the lovely rosemary flavoring): one with the paired homemade fries and one with whipped potatoes. Their plates were *clean*! Gram enjoyed the penne pasta and shrimp, and I had the Timbale of tuna and salmon tartare appetizer as my entree, which was served with just a bit of cilantro throughout and topped with red and black caviar and little dollops of sour cream: my plate was cleaned too! Desserts were ice cream, strawberry crepes with rhubarb compote and a creme brulee with a rich pudding and a generous layer of caramelized sugar on top. Delicious and relaxing, a very nice family option with a very "New York" feel for a mealtime before the later-evening rush.
