Contemporary American
Since first opening its doors in 1984, Gotham Bar and Grill has epitomized New York City dining at its finest, serving Executive Chef Alfred Portale's sublime and refreshingly accessible Contemporary American Cuisine in a dining room that is consistently packed with sophisticated diners from all over the country and the world.

One of the secrets of Gotham's success is that it is an institution that has never become institutional. The unparalleled quality of the food and service are constants, but the rest of the Gotham experience is constantly updated to keep the restaurant feeling as fresh as the day it opened. New menu items are introduced each season, the wine list is always evolving, and the dining room is regularly revamped.

Gotham Bar and Grill has been honored as Most Outstanding Restaurant in the nation by the James Beard Foundation, which named Chef/Owner Alfred Portale Most Outstanding Chef in the nation for 2006.

Gotham Bar and Grill never disappoints--Ive been coming to this amazing restaurant for over 20 years. The setting is gorgeous, the kitchen is consistently stellar and the service is sublime. A special spot for a special meal!

Worst problem was the oysters. Why have them if they are $1.00 oysters that are served at bars. Not acceptable

have gone to Gotham for 30 years on special occasions. think it has become quite ordinary and overpriced. decor is lovely but should be updated. menu reads well but food has no panache. no amuse Boucher and stale donut holes which were free and hardly worth it.

The food is less satisfactory than our experience in our past visit. The service is much worse than the past. Disappointing because we told our guests about our pleasant experience.

One of the best restaurants in NYC from front of the house to the bar to the table. Expert bartenders; table service was superb. Attentive with not being overbearing. Probably one of the best staffed places in the city. Steak arrived perfectly cooked. oysters were delicious and as clean as can be. Baked Alaska for dessert was fantastic.

A perfect, almost magical experience. Incredible food, excellent service and suggestions, beautiful space. That evening, they recommended a special - an Indian lentil and vegetable dish - which was sublime. I'd had something similar a decade ago and have never found those spices or that flavor elsewhere. The other courses were great as well.

Sarah our waitress was great. Place was just a little dry for our tastes. Lacks a soul in our opinion. The 4 bite gourmet entree approach is a kitty90’s.

It was a special anniversary and we decided to celebrate at a special restaurant. Gotham Bar and Grill was an excellent choice. The lovely, spacious room was wonderful for conversation and the atmosphere was lovely. The food was extraordinary. The Foie Gras and fig appetizer was silken and rich. The tuna tartare and seafood salad were subtle and perfectly seasoned. The duck was delicious, but a small serving unlike the surf and turf, which consisted of butter poached lobster and braised short ribs, both perfect. Our server was helpful, knowledgable and professional.
The sommelier, a charming young man, took the trouble to spend time to help us choose wine by the glass that perfectly suited our food choices.This doesn't happen in many restaurants.
Overall, a lovely evening. My only slight disappointment is that although they acknowledged our anniversary, the only recognition was a tiny Happy Anniversary sign on the dessert we ordered.

The steak we ordered was hard like a rock and was served room temperature rather than warm. I was disappointed because the restaurant was highly recommended and we were there for my friend’s birthday dinner. Also, the waitress was not very cheerful or accommodating. This was far less of an experience than we were expecting.

I brought my son and his wife for a late lunch and spent over 2 hrs savouring every bite. As foodies, we were impressed with the attention to detail, the artistry of the presentation, the imaginative combinations and wide variety of elements. The finale of the visit was finest chocolate mousse cake that any of us had ever experienced.
As it was almost empty, the staff were available but never intrusive. We felt wonderfully taken care of.

Have been going to this restaurant for 30 years. The food is consistently excellent, the service better than good. The noise level is perfect. Just the right amount of buzz. My only criticism is the decor is sort of tired. The art is great but it all needs an update. Still when in NYC, will try to make a reservation.

I was a bit disappointed in the slovenly appearance of a couple of the waitstaff. Looked like McDonadl's employees. Not the head waiters or maitre d' (one of the best in NYC). Wish the menu expanded a bit.

Has really gone downhill. Food was fine - nothing to write home about, but no big complaints. Service was AWFUL. Our waitress was surly and rude. The bus people (in charge of keeping waters filled, etc.) were lovely, but main source of contact should not be in service industry.

I am a regular patron of GB&G. My wife and I were having dinner there and were given a bill containing someone else's bar tab. An innocent mistake? Possibly, but the waiter didn't seem at all surprised when I pointed it out to him, nor was he the least bit apologetic about nearly stiffing us for $60. I mentioned to the manager on the way out that we had been over-billed and that the waiter had not apologized when the error was pointed out. The manager's response was, "you want an apology? Well, I apologize. Now you have one." Churlish. The whole exchange left a bad taste in our mouths, even though the food was as good as usual. I wonder whether a patron walked out on a bar tab and someone at the restaurant added it our bill thinking we would not notice. I hope that was not the case because I have always liked this restaurant.

We are out of towners who discovered the Gotham several years ago and make it a regular stop during our visits to the city 2-3 times a year. We always look forward to lunch at the Gotham and always enjoy it.
