My boyfriend and I dined at Tribeca Grill on Saturday night at 8pm. Oddly, we walked right in without reservations and got a two top table near the bar which was great. Our waiter had zero personality and almost looked aggravated that we were sat. He took our order and we didnt see him again until the bill arrived. For an app, we shared the tomato salad which was great. For our entree's we both ordered the filet mignon. Portion wise, it was great. It came with spinach, mashed potato and onion rings. It was a lot of food for $33. Sadly, my steak was way overcook and butterflied (They didnt ask if I wanted it butterflied). My spinach was room temp and the onion rings were cold. If we could have called over our waiter we would have, but like I said, he vanished.

Dined there about 3 weeks ago. I came in with very high expectations as I've heard friends and family rave about it. I ordered the softshell crabs which were cooked superbly. They were very fresh and very meaty. Prices aside this meal probably ranks up there in one of my top ten meals I've experienced. Now prices considered, it doesn't come close to ranking anywhere in my top ten. You can get the same quality food cooked just as well at places all along the tri state area. Now i know you're paying for the name, location, atmosphere, and the executive chef's salary. But all things considered, I feel you can get better value and equally as satisfying food at other places in the city. Just my opinion! =)

My husband and I eat dinner here most times we're in the city. Neither of us has ever had a bad meal (from appitizers to dessert), and keep going back........in a city of thousands of restaurants......we know the dinner will be satisfying here!

Bartenders were very friendly. Waiter was subpar. Felt like we were doing him a favor. We were given a crappy table, despite reservation made a month in advance. Loved the atmosphere. Lighting was warm and art was interesting and complimentary to the rest of the decor. Beet salad was outstanding, with perfect touch of goat cheese and herbs. It was the highlight of the evening. Green salad was just a big bowl of lettuce with 2 grape tomatoes hidden somewhere in all that greenery and blah blah blah dressing. The scallops in the scallop and risotto dish were tasty, but the risotto was bland. The one thing that can be said for it is that the rice was cooked to perfect texture - not mushy or crunchy. Striped bass was overpowered by the bean, swiss chard and red wine "stew" it was sitting on. Finally decided to eat the bass alone, and found it tasted "fishy". Perhaps that's why the bean/chard/wine glop was so spicy....to hide the less than fresh fish. Our waiter didn't offer coffee or dessert, and we didn't ask. We just wanted an end to the mediocrity and practically ran out of the joint. Extremely disappointing.

We woke up on Saturday morning and wanted a place to go for dinner. After a few calls, we were lucky enough to get an 8:45 reservation at Tribeca Grill. The main room is lively and inviting. It's a mix of tourists and locals. After a lousy margarita and a belini martini, we moved on to an enjoyable dinner. The roasted beet salad with goat cheese was excellent. The colors and flavors were superb. I had the braised short rib and it was tasty and tender. I would give the side of "autumn root vegetables" a two. It consisted of carrots, celery and parsnips....all practically raw and tasteless. It was more a stack of crudite on the side of the plate. My husband had the lamb. Thankfully he ordered it medium, for it came very rare. He liked it, since he can do rare to medium. I would have sent it back. The chanterelle and potato puree he substituted was a bit salty, but flavorful. Vanilla creme brulee was velvety and a great cup of coffee finished the evening. The service, though friendly, was a bit MIA at times. We did enjoy the evening. Main courses were much better than the sides. Overall, it was a nice night. Just what we were looking for tonight.

I'm not sure what all the people below are moaning about. I've been here a dozen times and have enjoyed every meal. It's a bit overpriced, but not so much as to keep me away. Try the burger... it's one of the best in town, and that's saying something in NY.
