i've been twice in the past two weeks and am so sad. the food is not what it was... the bacon-wrapped trout? fine, but nothing extraordinary. the rabbit and spaetzle? the same. the tavern room used to be such comfort. now...well, the flowers are still nice.

I've been eating at GT for close to 10 years and several months ago I went in and they advised me about Tom Colicchio leaving...to be replaced by Michael Anthony. At that point M. Anthony had not made any changes to the menu. We went in Saturday night and were confronted by what is basically a completely new menu (in the Tavern)...once the initial shock wore off from not being able to order the signature filet we set about trying some new things, and boy we are happy we did. We chose the rabbit that offered regular portions along with rabbit sausage, and then also had the brook trout wrapped in bacon - both offerings were absolutely superb. I have to say that this meal was as good or better than any other I ever had at GT, and I've probably eaten there at least 30 times. Well done Michael Anthony. GO!

My husband and I ate at the Gramercy Tavern last weekend, and we had the best meal ever! The food was such good quality. I ordered the lobster which was out of this world. It just melted in my mouth, especially with the sauce they cooked it in. The appitizers were also fabulous! I wish I remembered our waiters name, because he was so nice. The one thing we loved about this restaurant is that they do NOT rush you. We sat for almost three hours on a Friday night. All the deserts are delicious. I ended up getting gourmet ice cream. They will bring you cups of five different flavors. I am getting hungry just thinking about this place. It's expensive, but definitely worth it!

Went tonight for my birthday dinner. The servvice was excellent, we had a reservation for a party of 4 and we were seated right away. All the food was good, but not great, and then the desserts came - FINALLY, you get enough dessert in a restauraunt! Usually they are small and overpriced, barely a bite, but my cake was a real slice and there was plenty of ice cream for the tasting. Muffins for the next morning were a lovely touch, I was just expecting a little more from the entrees. Definitely, don't skip dessert, especially the chocolate peanut butter cake!

My wife and I dine at the bar often. We enjoy the food and the service. Most of all you have to love the mixologist on staff. In our opinion, Jim is the BEST mixologist in the city right now. Go for the great food, the menu has just changed and is wonderful, but also try one of Jim's creations. The bar is the best place to sit, as they make you feel you are the only one they are helping. The new menu is creative, and is just perfect for the fall and winter months, and the prices are a terrific value for the quality and quantity of the food. Try the cheese course, the new vintage beer menu, or just stop bye for a hot apple cider. You will be glad you did. See you at the bar...

I tried Gramercy Tavern (the bar room) for the first time and came away with all my expectations met. The waiter recommended the Fresh Bacon and Fish Stew as the best two entree's on the bar menu. We opted for the Bacon and Striped Bass instead (should have ordered the stew). The bacon was excellent, 3 perfectly cooked 4 x 1.5 x 1inch chunks of deliciously bacon. It is a small dish (picture 3 very small short-ribs without the bone) and probably not enough for an entree by itself, but I walked over and shared half a double shake shack burger for the meal combo of a lifetime. Unfortunately I'm about to have a heart attack. If I live to go again I'll avoid the bass and go with the recommended stew.

Wow, so many of the dishes here are so well crafted, the flavors are a true treat for the tastebuds. Service is impeccable. I asked our server to help me decide between 2 things for each course and he never let me down. I had the crab appetizer which was delicious, my husbands scallops were equally tasty. His steak was a little on the small side for the price though. I had the halibut which was superb and a more reasonable portion. The creme brulee tasted more like flan than creme brulee, but the chocolate tart was delicious. They brought out 2 tiny dishes "complements of the chef" which is a nice touch, as are the banana nut muffins they send you home with. The place is quite expensive, so save it for a special occasion.
