We made reservations for 12 people and accomodated us without any problems. (other places refused). The restaurant with it's 3 floors is cozy for an intimate group setting. The L-shape of our tables was a little uncomfortable but understandable taking the room size in consideration. The wine the served was nice and so was the prompt service. The food was good considering the price. Definately good quality soups and good portions of the main course. The lentel soup was delicious. And everybody enjoyed the variety on the menu. Although it's history of the hour timed dining we stayed longer with many checks for any requests. The deserts were yummie and so was the capacino. Defenitely a place we would go back on a regular basis

After reading the prior reviews, my three friends and I ate a pre-theater dinner here on November 10, 2009. The ground floor dining room is tiny yet interesting. The upper two floors, both former apartments, were comfortable and spacious. The menu is extensive and varied. Each one of us chose a different entree and none was disappointed. There are three different prix fixe menus and you cannot go wrong with any of them. Two home made soups offered each day. On our visit, we ordered the lentil and the black bean. Both were delicious. The house salad was imaginative and substantial and the dressing was superb. I highly recommend the lamb shank and the pasta special (if available) with mascarpone, gorgonzola and chicken. The Hourglass Tavern is a little gem on Restaurant Row. The service is friendly, attentive and informative. The food is unusually good and the value is unbeatable. Four of us ate for under $100.00. I cannot wait to return. Kudos to Beth and her staff.

We truly enjoyed our dinner last evening after going out to the theater. We sat by the front window, and I couldn't have asked for a better spot. What a lovely place.

Our first time on Restaurant Row and we found the one place that felt like it was not geared for tourists. The atmosphere was as unique as any in New York. Our dinner was delicious (the Lamb Shank is a must!) And furthermore the entire staff, owners included, were wonderful and engaging. We would recommend The HourGlass Tavern to New Yorkers and tourists alike!

I took my wife for dinner last week and we had a lovely dinner at the Hourglass Tavern. I highly recommend the Lolly-Pop Lamb Chops; Fantastic Dish. The Sundried Tomato Ravioli was great and the appetizers are delicious. The prices are reasonable so dinner for two should run around $30-$50 bucks.

Our party of four ate at the Hourglass last night before the theatre. We visit NYC often, and it's rare that we have a good sit-down meal for under $50 per person, but our bill at the Hourglass was under $115 (before tip), which included a bottle of inexpensive (but good) white wine. Between the four of us we had steak, seafood, and pasta, and no one was disappointed. All meals included appetizer, soup or salad, dessert, and coffee or tea. The homemade vegetable soup was excellent. Two of our meals came with asparagus, and although neither I nor my son care much for asparagus, it was cooked perfectly, with just the right crispness, so for the first time we both quickly finished it up. The only disappointment was the stuffed phyllo dough appetizer it was cold and had no flavor. Seating is cozy (tight) but adequate. Service was attentive and courteous.
