Have been to GT quite a few times over the last 10 yrs+. No question, the food is great. Four of us had the tasting menu. Two thin males ate three rolls each (great bread) and the complimentary muffin you're supposedto take home, and we were still ready for a small snack. The bill with wine was over $750. This is a trend in some restaurants where you are showered with bread types, chocolates and take home baked goods. I wish they would stop the cheap and unhealthy items and serve more food. One bite should not constitute a serving in a tasting menu.

Went to this place for first time with my grandmother. Had lunch on saturday. She had the bacon wrapped trout, which was pretty stellar, and I had the corvina with lobster, mussels, and sunchokes, which was very good. Despite the fact that the corvina dish was a fairly small portion (even for a guy who's 5'8", 160), the service and decor were both excellentas good as any other restaurant as this price level. On a side note, my dining partner said the bathrooms are particularly well appointed, with jazz music coming from the speakers and real towels hanging on the racks. We sat in the front section of the restaurant (I don't think the back section was open during weekend lunch). I'd like to try dinner in the back section when I return.

I only bother reviewing restaurants if they're unbelievable or terrible. And this is the definition of the former. Dad and I went in for lunch the day before thanksgiving, chose the formal dining room and were both blown away from the minute we sat down. The decor does not go for the overly-stuffy elegant/formal nonsense that successful retirement home inhabitants enjoy, but rather more of a country estate type of feel. The tasting menu dictated perfection in every dish. Highlights were the divers scallops with spaghetti squash and toasted pumpkin seeds, as well as the blackwish entree being out of this world. And just when it seemed life couldn't get any better... we fell into tasting an assortment of about 7 desserts between tasting menu inclusions, a house specialty coconut ice cream with tapioca and cucumber jelly, and some other compliments of the chef - all of which were delectable. To wrap it up, aside from excellent service and comfortably classy (my idea of perfect) decor, this restaurant's kitchen conjures up the best food New York has to offer.

For the money and the food this place is the best around. The service is wonderful, the food is great, and the value is the best. I had a beer, a glass of wine, and a three course meal for $60. Everytime I am in the city I stop by and they never disappoint

this is one of the few restaurants in the flatiron/gramercy area, open on sunday for lunch. we love the unpretenscious atmosphere, the casual dress code of the guests, and the high quality food & service this restaurant delivers. to start, we ordered carrot soup & farro risotto (delicious vegetarian dishes though i thought the risotto was a little bland for my taste; my husband disagreed). i had a tough time with the entrees because every one except chicken had either pork or shellfish (i dont eat either). ended up making a substitution on the trout main course and was delighted with the outcome! we were too full for dessert however. great place - definitely worth it. ps. only complaint is that our table had food remnants from the prior guests. the restaurant needs to pay more attention to cleanliness.

I would consider myself a global foodie.. Gramercy Tavern continues to perform at one of the highest levels in Manhattan. No pretension - just great food & delightful service. Two people...great bottle of wine....excellent food....perfect ambiance.... $100. What more can you ask for?
