I have no complaints about the staff/service (everyone was actually very nice) and the space itself is ideal. Nonetheless, the food fell well short of my expectations and gives me the sense that people go there primarily because of the impressive list of celebrity investors that own it. I have yet to encounter a restaurant that makes a less appealing blue cheese endive salad (how can someone make that un-appetizing?) The braised short ribs were stringy and the goat cheese ravioli might well have come from a frozen bag. It was almost insulting the way parmigiano reggiano was sprinkled on the top and it seemed that the chef saw fit to simply blanch a handful of spinach and toss it on the plate. Dessert was pretty good but nothing to write home about. It's really a shame because that neighborhood deserves a better flagship restaurant. Don't bother (unless you're only interested in stalking celebrities).

My husband and I went to the Tribeca Grill last week to celebrate his birthday. We had been there several times before so we thought it was the best place for a special night. The evening before I called the resturant and spoke at length about my wish to surprise my husband on that night. I was assurred they would have a cake ready and that making the evening special was their specialty! I took this at face value! I was convinced I communicated the evening I was trying to create. I was, therefore, shocked when we had our dinner, the waiter asked us if we wanted dessert and when both of us declined he presented our check. No cake, no mention this day was special. Upon getting back to our apartment I called the resturant and explained how disappointed I was that something went wrong. I was informed I was speaking with an evening manager who "understood" how upset I was and that indeed the resturant had "dropped the ball with my husband's birthday". Although she spoke the words I felt she was basically unsympathetic to my situatuion.

Fantastic! Definitely the best meal I had in NYC. Loved the atmosphere! The wine selection is very impressive. Will definitely return.

Went to NYC this past weekend and for something different my friend, her daughter and I decided to try the Tribeca Grill and are we ever glad that we did. It was AWESOME! The service was superb - we were treated like celebs, the atmosphere was great, the food was great - everything was just perfect! I will definitely go back!

Took my sister and husband here to eat. They enjoyed the food and thought it was well prepared. Waiters were attentive. Served delicious rolls. However the portions are a bit small. The atmosphere was pleasant without being pretentious. We took advantage of the fixed price dinner but not many choices! Overall it's worth a visit.

We started with a mushroom soup topped with black truffles stuffed with foie gras. Steaks and salad out of sight.

We went here on the Saturday night of our stay and thought it was excellent. Had a lovely bottle of wine for 30 bucks! The food was splendid and the service cheerful. It was quite busy as the film festival was on whilst we were there but service was still prompt. Would definitely recommend it and would go there on our next trip too.
