About Gotham Bar and Grill
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 Ratings and Reviews
We visit Gotham for lunch every time we are in NYC. This was the first time Gotham did not meet our expectations. Menu choices were limited and not to our liking , restaurant was only 1/2 filled (a first for us), the waiter, while efficient, was abrupt. The food was excellent.
We go to this restaurant on every trip to New York. It never fails to be one of the best if not the best every time. We love the foie gras and all their fish dishes' the duck is the best in the USA. The desserts should not be skipped, sharing is a great way to go. The service is also just right ,not too much and always there when you need them.
Took our new Columbia grad for a celebratory lunch and were treated like royalty right down to the congratulatory note on his dessert! The prix fixe Greenmarket lunch options are delectable one and all (yes, between the four of us we tried them all but the assorted sorbets), and a great value. Favorite items were the pea soup and the branzino. We will be back soon for dinner!
Said it before and I'll say it again: For quality of food and overall experience, The Gotham has the best deal in the city for lunch. It's not cheap, but it's not expensive and it is one of the best values in this or any other city, including Paris, London and Rome. An old friend said, "This place is underrated. The food is so good, as is the presentation, and yet it's so understated that it's easy to take it for granted. But one never should. It is simply a great restaurant offering a great lunch deal. It's memorable for dinner, too, but the lunch...." He's right.
We got the date mixed up and arrived on the wrong day, they couldn't do enough for us instead of turning us away they found a table after 5 mins. All staff were delightful, we had the black cod and the pork chop both cooked to perfection. Would recommend the shell fish bisque which was also excellent. I have visited many restaurants around the world gotham is one of the best.
One of NYC's greatest restaurants. It stays true to its heritage yet always staying present and fresh. From the maitre d to the servers everyone seems to genuinely re care about giving you a unique and special experience. It will remain one of my families most enjoyed respites in a world where there are few.
We went for Mothers day Brunch .Everything was terrific .the food was exquisite and the service was impeccable under the watchful eye of the manager .The staff anticipated our every need before we even said a word .The presentation was wonderful and the frittata was the best I ever had .
Gotham was great, as usual! I dine there often and it's consistently amazing. I've been going for 25 years and they've never once disappointed me. That is quite an accomplishment for a restaurant. I can't say enough good things and of course, I introduce everyone I know to Gotham.
The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable but holy moly was it expensive. It was our anniversary so I knew it would be, but it still felt expensive.
Our server was personable, but not too irritating. He gave wonderful food and drink advise and they even gave us a little treat for our anniversary.
If you want to splurge a little or have a date night this is the place to do it. Our waiter John was excellent and had some great recommendations for drinks and food. We had the fish and 28 days aged steak which was both cooked to perfection. The manager even came over and made sure everything was good and we were satisfied. I like that they don't rush you out or hover over you for anything.
Excellent food, albeit expensive, with a very pleasant setting. Service very good, but, after dropping dessert menus, our waiter vanished for way too long. A downer on value is very few reasonably priced wines out of a large list. Found a good St. Joseph for a fair price, but shouldn't have to search that much.
