My wife and I go often. The service, as well as the food is excellent. This time there was a desert with "white strawberries" which we had never heard of. Well, it was heaven.
it might be your best date, your very special occasion. It is one of the best in NYC

This is a unique venue in which to meet friends. I would suggest asking your server about the toys hanging from the ceiling. The menu is what you would expect; predictable eponymous dishes, priced for business expense clientele. My $26 dollar "21" hamburger was very good but one would only pay that much for either a Kobe burger (which it wasn't) or for the privilege of eating at this iconic location

extraordinary service, extremely gracious and welcoming from the moment we entered the restaurant. the food was exceptional. the mac and cheese my 12 daughter had was the best she has ever had to the filet I had enjoyed, the food was wonderful. we were surprised by how perfect the service was.
Forever 21, But Glory Is Fading
A glorious institution but the glory days are a memory. Half-empty testosterone palace now serves its classic burger hopelessly overcooked but boastfully overpriced. The stockbroker crowd munches the mediocre food, arguing about Trump and too young to know what 21 was in The Day. But the conversations were lively and the clientele, though sparse at 8 p.m. on a weeknight, appeared satisfied. It's still a great place for a drink. And If you're OK with risking sending something back until it's cooked properly, you can soak up some old-school New York glamour and imagine what it was like in its heyday. 21 still looks spit-shined and immaculate, the service is deft and confident, but with 1,000-point bonuses from Open Table, the restaurant appears to be gasping for breath. Want the real thing, circa 2016? Try Minetta.
Old time favorite.

Amazing atmosphere! Splendid steak and superb drinks. Very very good place. Like it a lot. Will definitely go back there!!
21 Club is a classic and must dine NY restaurant
Steeped in history, stories and tradition, one of my favorite restaurants with outstanding service. Get Phil the wine sommelier to help you select from the fabulous wine list, the food is great, ambiance excellent, the standards remain high throughout theirs, a real treat! Wonderful for cocktails too, just get the captain with the bow tie to help you!

Well you are never disappointed at the 21 but maybe ruined. For example, I can never have baked mac and cheese anywhere else. Truffle Mac and cheese redefined Mac and cheese for me. Thank you 21 for yet another unforgettable and lovely experience.
New York Gem
I love the 21 Club for out of town business guests especially. It is a wonderful blend of old New York, great service, style and grace. Servers and guests alike are friendly and in good spirits. This is destination dining and cocktails.
Always heard about the 21 Club, but I never had an occasion to go there. I wanted to try it out, so I used a Nephew's Bday as the excuse. The service really was outstanding; very attentative, but not hovering. The food was also excellent. I wouldn't categorize it as "foodie" level, but just really well done and tasty. Worth the special splurge.

Horrible. Crazy overpriced. Empty for lunch. Never again.
Ask for Chauncey
Since 21 Club is a new gem, I have entertained clients over 20 times but have never been remembered nor greeted with a warm welcome. Until I Chauncey was my server. He remembered and gave outstanding service. His service changed my experiences at 21 Club. This establishment maybe famous and have old clientele but for any business I think it's important to attract new guests. The food has always been good but the service makes the dining experience that much more special. I highly recommend you request for Chauncey! I'm a fan.
My wife and I celebrated out anniversary in NYC and used a gift certificate our daughter had given us for Christmas. While the wait staff and receptionist wished us a happy anniversary when we arrived, we were not made to feel special during our entire meal.....no complementary drink or small dessert. We also sat for almost ten minutes before our dinner dishes were cleared and had to ask for our check. Given the prices at the 21 Club, we felt we should have had a more positive experience. We doubt we'll go there again.
We had a great time. This was our third time dining here and everything was fantastic.
Our choice for dining at 21 Club was excellent. We were seated at a lovely table that gave us a broad view of the dining room. The ceiling was unique , historical and yet comfortable. All of our servers were attentive without being annoying. Food was delicious and perfectly served. Since we were going to a play after dinner, the location was great. We enjoyed every moment of our evening and would certainly return.
This was a trip down memory lane for me!
Seated at Bogart/Bacall's table with my daughter where I sat for lunch during a honeymoon stop-over in 1962 added to the overall thrill of being back at 21. The wonderful service was highlighted by our conversations with John who took excellent care of us. The cocktails, wines and foods were perfect and I hope to be back at 21 again before so many years go by! The warmth of the atmosphere made us forget we'd have to go back into the rain before taking our seats in the theatre!
Classy - Easy going Dining
Service was amazing, people were great . They gave us a private tour down at the cellar. Everything we ordered was just spectacular . Dessert was great too! Overall a great place to go if you want to feel relaxed and enjoy some great food and good wine! Very CLASSY .

What a treat. So nice to step into the past, and we really appreciated all the love that went into the traditional dishes and the gracious and fun service.

Fun place, with all the funny stuff hanging from the ceiling!
From the moment we walked in the door we were treated very special. We were 2 couples celebrating anniversaries and we thought 21 club would be a typical New York experience and we were not disappointed
My husband and I celebrated his birthday at the 21 Club; it was fabulous! We enjoyed our dinners, and our servers were very attentive and professional. We're looking forward to dining here again soon.
A great meal with comfortable ambience
We enjoyed the pre-theater prix fixe menu. The salads and appetizers were excellent. We had both vegetarian cavatelli and steak entrees, uniformly praised. The desserts were equally fine. The Charles Krug cabernet we enjoyed was a hit with all three of us.

21 is one of the few remaining bulwarks of the kind of legendary and historic New York fine dining establishments that haute cuisine dreams are made of. Beautifully executed classical American fare (aged bone-in rib-eye, crabcakes, wild mushrooms, corn chowder) with a keen update here and there; impeccable old school service from all levels of the staff; a vibrantly nostalgic main dining room and elegant front bar area; and whimsically crafted and presented desserts (21 Express) are what I expected and got on my visit to 21 this past weekend.

The decor is odd and quirky which adds to the old world charm. The service is impeccable, we were well taken care of but never rushed or hovered over. The staff are the most professional in the business. The food is pricey but worth every penny. The classic menu sections were exactly what we were looking for the the execution perfect. Wonderful experience all around.
A lovely place for a birthday celebration. It was perfect.

No service for 25 minutes. We ordered a bottle of wine, which they didn't know was on the menu. Never tasted the food, or the wine. Left after 30 minutes, when a glass of water was spilled on us and wine still not served. Clearly an establishment that people revisit due to nostalgia sake, not because it can compete in this foodie city. By he way, we never walk out on meals. We just couldn't fathom paying $300 for a meal with such poor service.

No longer featuring a prix fixe at lunch so it is rather pricey. Wine is of high quality. Also expensive, even for NYC prices. Food is great and service is timely without being rushed.

It was fun to go to the famed 21 Club. Great service and loved the ceiling decor! The food was adequate but not necessarily good enough to bring me back. Might consider going with friends for drinks though.
I think that this is the best restaurant in New York City.
Cold and missing
Entrees were cold. Wine course with entrees was forgotten and delivered with desert. Cool place that needs to refocus on being a restaurant.
My wife and i had drinks and dinner at the bar. Eddie K. Dinner was great, and service as well. Thanks to all! Doug Thomas
Great food/ great service alway!

Mixture of an Experience
Great location, ambience & setting. Service was cold & not overly friendly. Good expensive.
21 keeps getting better and better
Lunch with friends at 21 this past Monday was superb, as usual -- outstanding fare, superior, unobtrusive service, and that oh-so-cozy and charming and most intimate setting -- a true oasis in the heart of mid-town Manhattan -- an absolute favorite of mine -- 38 years and counting!
Classic New York experience!
We loved this NYC iconic spot for our pre theater dinner! The food was fabulous, the service was excellent and the cocktails were delightful!
