Unique setting with lots of sports & other memorabilia hanging from the ceiling. The waitstaff was very attentive & friendly and the food was fabulous. We had a pre -fixed dinner before the theater which included a three course meal for a very reasonable price. The restaurant is centrally located to many theaters, so it was no problem to get there in plenty of time.

A return visit to my husband's favourite New York restaurant. The cocktails are excellent ,a good wine list. Very busy when we arrived earlier than the appointed time but we were accommodated- suddenly the place empties- not our doing- but clearly popular for business lunches. Good efficient service. We shared a tuna starter, each had the filet mignon with peppercorn sauce which was excellent and then shared profiteroles. Not cheap but a lovely meal in ambient surroundings

We have been here many times and have never been disappointed. We have introduced many friends who feel the trip from Long Island is well worth the traffic. Sit at Chauncy and John's area for a truly enjoyable experience.

we picked this restaurant on one of our trips to new york city given it's history, location, and desirable menu. the food really was excellent, however the service was lacking on our visit. we arrived at 7pm on a friday night and the restaurant was not that busy, however it took over five minutes just to get drinks ordered, no water as we sat down or menus placed at our table. we found this interesting, as we were seated right next to the bar and being that the restaurant was well staffed and plenty of individuals standing around. once we finally ordered service did improve. for the price point, the evening should have been flawless. we probably won't go back or if we do, we'll eat at the bar in the front of the restaurant.

Top notch! Absolutely spectacular food and the 21 Club did such a nice job of making us feel like honored guests for our daughter's 21st Birthday celebration. I would recommend this as a wonderful special occasion spot for any occasion. The steak tartare was perfection! The extensive wine list is pricey, but worth it. And the waitstaff was all wonderfully attentive. A+ all around!

We had dinner at 21 Club. It was very good, but very, very expensive. You are paying for the history of the restaurant. We enjoyed going there for dinner once; we will not return simply because it is so expensive. The service and food is outstanding, but not nearly worth the high price you will pay for it. Great for a special occasion. Lunch may be a better time to visit.

We were interested to see the decor, but did not know what the background story for all the toys on the ceiling. A friend gave us the story about Howard Hughes and then everyone else wanting the free advertising. What fun! A fabulous martini and the osso bucco was wonderful.

Twenty One continues to shine as an outpost of quality, intimacy and taste. This outing was to celebrate the birthday of a prized family patriarch and the staff of Twenty One rose to the occasion. Thank you for making this an even more memorable event. We look forward to returning often.
Just What the Doctor Ordered
Debbie and I stopped into 30W44th Street as she gave me a membership to the Penn Club for my first retirement birthday, but only 21W52nd Street will do for a celebratory luncheon. From the moment we were greeted (by name, or course) until we left to face a downpour, “21” remains, in the words of Bryan Miller, “a marvelous rich man’s sandbox.” Debbie had the incomparable Idaho Trout Almondine and I enjoyed the legendary ‘21’ burger; we had just enough room left to split a decadent Saint-Domingue Chocolate Soufflé. Naturally, the service is impeccable, the atmosphere delightful, and the clientele without compare. Incidentally, Billy Seeman’s table (#11, now frequented by The Donald) is ideal to see the panorama of the Bar Room without being seen. Although “21” has never been a private club, it feels like one; today Debbie wore her Nr. XXV scarf (jockeys) and I surprised her with a Nr. XXXXX (Remington), and, to express my thanks to the staff, I left a 1950 edition of “’The Iron Gate’ of Jack & Charlie’s ‘21’” in which patrons of renown wrote and drew their impressions of the former SpeakEasy. Truly, at “21” one does not just visit an icon, one is permitted to become a part of it.

Even though our reservation at 8 pm and I was there on time (barely) but other 3 guests were late by 10-15 minutes due to downpour and couldn't get tax.
We were told that we needed to wait for 15 minutes but we ended up waiting till 9.15 pm.
More upsetting was that the group that came after us.. were seated about 30 minutes before us.
3 of the 4 people had drinks at the bar while waiting but the establishment didn't even offer to absorb the cost of the drinks.
This place has changed quite a lot (tie is no longer mandatory) since I used to frequent this place 30 years ago when my office was nearby...
Very disappointing ...
Our wait staff was EXCELLENT--bartender/waiter/sommelier/waitress! Everyone one of them. Same for the staff who greeted us at the door. A+++ all the way. Treated us like celebrities. Great drinks. Nice/thoughtful "Happy Anniversary " sign made of chocolate on our dessert. Lump crabmeat delicious! Chicken hash a slight disappointment--huge portion, too thick. But we will defintely return. Ambience was out of this world. A wonderful evening. Thank you.
Memorable - expensive, but worth every penny.
One of the most memorable dining experiences I have ever had. Good to see the ceiling. Expensive but I knew it would be. The overall experience was amazing. My friends stunned. And capped off with a private tour of the secret cellar.
The Most "Powerful" Restaurant in New York
When it comes to power, there's no place like 21 Club.
The speakeasy history of 21 Club is powerful NYC lore.
The legends, the people who dine there and hang at the bar define power, globally.
The dining rooms are elegant, quiet and still bursting with electric energy.
Besides being an amazing power spot, 21 Club is incredibly romantic.
If I ever propose, again :), it will be in the wine cellar at 21 Club...
Where established New Yorker's enjoy fine dinning with an excellent sellection of wine. There is an interesting atmosphere which feels refined, calm and intelegent. The staff interaction with other guests suggested that there were a number of regulars which gave it a slight homely tone.

Disappointing. I have been to 21 for two other special occasions, including New Years Eve about 8 years ago. Our experience then was great, this time we were really disappointed, especially for $300+. The service was mediocre. We were not offered pepper with our Cesar, and the follow up by the waiter was "you ok?" rather than a "I hope you find everything to your liking". At the table next to us, a server spilled an entire Cesar salad on a patron, and while it was cleaned up, I know her clothes were stained with dressing, including her expensive bag. Never did I see a manager apologize to the table, and the patrons were really unhappy. For the cost of this place, there are MUCH better restaurants to visit. I guess they rely on the tourist traffic so much that they have let it slide. We won't be back.

Four of us had lunch on Wednesday May 25th. Everything was great with one big exception. My wife and I ordered two glasses of Pinot noir. Was totally shocked when I got the bill that the two glasses cost $52. The waiter never mentioned the wine was that expensive. A companion had wine at $14 per glass. I feel I was totally ripped off.

Everyone we encountered went out of their way to make us feel welcome...I was treating my friend for her birthday, and I so appreciated Chauncey bringing a special desert to the table...it made her day....it was our first visit and it was everything we had hoped it would be.....thank you again!
