Gotham Bar and Grill
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.

Food was good, but not outstanding as it was in the past. I wouldn't recommend the goat cheese ravioli, it was flavorless. Portions have gotten smaller over the years. Great atmosphere and service..
Great place to celebrate occasions. Always treat me like a regular even though I am there only a few times a year. Remember my table preference too.
We were visiting NY to celebrate our 38th Anniversary, and what better place to do it than at Gotham? We've been coming to Gotham since 2001 and we've never had anything other than a great experience. This time it was truly exceptional. We arrived early (it's difficult to time NYC traffic) but were greeted warmly (with the Host wishing us a Happy Anniversary first thing) and seated immediately at the table we requested. Throughout the evening, it seemed as though half the staff came over to wish us Happy Anniversary at one point or another. Every staff member was personable, the service was outstanding, the food beautifully presented and tasty. Particular kudos to Sarah and Edward who took such good care of us. They even comped us dessert. There are many places in Manhattan that serve great food, but is there any place that offers better service?
This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. Alfred Portale is gone and along with him, everything that made the restaurant great.
Great service great food
Beef is NOT grass fed as advertised.
It's good...but not grass fed.
They use that "oxygen" preservative on ..something...not sure what....woke up with that awful residue taste.
Service is impeccable.
What a wonderful place the tables are comfortably spaced so you can have a conversation and not hear the people next to you!
The food and service are wonderful. I recommend the chocolate cake for dessert it’s delicious
Superb in every way. Great service, food, wine and atmosphere. Can’t be beat.
We went for our anniversary and asked for a private table. Everyone was very accommodating. We were welcomed with happy Anniversary greetings from the hostess, the maitre’d and the waitress. They gave us a perfect table. The food was fantastic. My halibut was juicy and delicious.
Clearly, one of the TOP 5 restaurants in all of NY CITY. Always Superb and the CHEF mixes flavors like no other
The food is consistently good as is the service.
There is a reason that this place is an iconic NY restaurant,
As always excellent never disappoints .The food was outstanding best halibut I have had in recent memory.
Always a fabulous meal with excellent service. An ultimate New York experience.
Lunch is a terrific value. Burger is spectacular and presented beautifully.
Excellent venue for any special occasion, including treating yourself to a great lunch.
Was an incredible and fun time thank you!
Gotham presents a quiet romantic atmosphere with muted lighting and hues. Its variety of banquettes are of cool curved stone justo positioned against billowing linen chandeliers feels like “Casablanca” with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman! Chef’s cuisine is excellent fare with surprising combinations that aren’t intimidating. The menu has varied choices to please today’s eccentric palettes. Sommelier commands a “huge” cellar, and surprised me with a delightful dry sherry with dessert. Gotham’s French service is invisibly “always” there predicting your needs, but not hovering. Gotham truly makes their guests feel “pampered plus appreciated,” and that’s worth paying for in the mist of hustling and bustling, Manhattan.
My infrequent visits to New York would not be complete without a reservation at Gotham. Superior friendly service from all. Food selections are fantastic and, despite my protestations, I appreciated the impromptu Birthday acknowledgement. My absolute favorite restaurant in the country. Worth a visit whether in NYC a day or a week. Never off my list.
My husbands birthday
Deserving of the star. A New York gem.
Wonderful anniversary dinner
It’s good, but the server left 1/2 way through the meal - and did not explain.
The staff is uniformly excellent. The ambiance is lively-sophisticated. Not stuck up. Food is good; but, rarely inspired. Josh the sommelier is great.
An ideal venue for lunch with an interesting menu, reasonable prices and a calm ambience.
I thought it was outstanding!!!
Lovely cuisine, fine service by Robert and staff.
Transcendent experience from the moment we entered until we left for the evening. Maitre ‘d welcomed us, happily accommodated a last-minute addition to the table. Talked with us for awhile and made us feel at home. The wait staff was kind to the two teen finicky eaters at our table. Service was non-intrusive but always there when we needed something. My Old Fashions we’re spot on and exactly the same from drink to drink. Halibut was delicious and would order again. Thank you so much for a memorable evening, I will return again and again.
Eating there for 20 years. Great place. Quiet and the wine list if quite good.
I went there for a restricted time cap for lunch and they made it happen all within one hour, even after we finish the main meal, my friend and I still had time to enjoy. It was such a seamless service and super nice !
Will defiantly be back !
Simply an outstanding experience from start to finish. Our party of was immediately greeted and seated upon arrival. This was a family celebration, and the room captain and all service staff made note of it upon greeting us. Given that we are a group that likes to sample multiple items and share, we were able to experience a good part of the menu. Highly notable and recommended dishes for early courses were the seafood salad, tuna tartare, paparadelle and risotto. All were outstanding. Main courses included Halibut, NY Strip, lobster and Cod. Without question, the Halibut was the star of the evening, even among all excellent dishes. Have never had better, even in notable seafood restaurants. Service was impeccable, as were the wine selections recommended by Sommelier, Chris. Overall, a very memorable experience! Will return whenever possible!
La comida no estuvo de acuerdo a mis expectativas. La última vez que fui el Manu era más completo
Have dined here many times over the years and it's always a sublime experience. Be prepared however to spend. I did think that our waitress could have been a little friendlier but that's a minor point. We were there for dinner but I would honestly recommend brunch. The food, service is just as special and it will be a much less expensive outing.
One of the best steaks I've ever had, coming from a Nebraskan.
Top notch service, best foie gras in the city.
All food and drink were beautifully presented and really tasty. Service exceeded expectations as I had to eat quick to catch a show. Was not made to feel uncomfortable dining alone. Was worth every penny.
Nicely done, good service. Pleasant atmosphere. Hate cafe seating though. I didn't go to dinner with the people next to me, but it feels like it with cafe seating when it is too close...
Gotham Bar and Grill lived up to its stellar reputation when my wife and I celebrated our 38th anniversary there earlier this week. Our server, Sean, could not have been more attentive and the food was exquisite. This was one of your very best dining experiences in New York -- which says a lot. We look forward to dining at the Gotham whenever we are back in town. Overall, an exceptional and very memorable dining experience.
Gotham has been one of my favorite restaurants for decades, and it continues to be one of the best in NYC. I and my guests have loved EVERYTHING we've ever eaten here, so there is no specific suggestion. Everything about this restaurant is first-rate.
Superior in every way. Outstanding food made better by superlative service,
The Gotham Bar and Grill is at the very top of many people's favorite NYC restaurants. I have been eating at Gotham for years, and the elegant room, service, and gracious presentation are still going strong. However, the kitchen has dropped a notch in its culinary preparation. Everything is good, but not great. My risotto was runny, tasting fresh, but not delicious. Fish dishes were good, but no one exclaimed great. In fact, the best dish at our table of five was the steak, surprising for a gourmet restaurant.
Gotham Bar and Grill has been a "grand dame" of NYC restaurants for decades. It's still going strong, but like many of us, has lost a step or two. A refurb in both space and kitchen may be necessary. We all need a little "lift" when the time comes.
