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
This was our first time at this restaurant. The staff was pleasant and attentive; we never felt rushed or put off with any question or request. The food selection was good and the meal was delicious.
We had the halibut and the pork chop, both excellent.
The desserts were small, but the raspberry soufflé was not only fablous, but an ample portion.
Would definitely eat there again!!!
Wonderful ambience and food. This is my second time at Gotham. Their Foies gras is the best I have ever had and did not fail to delight again. The presentation of the food was glorious and the food was delicious. However, we found our waiter to be smug, indifferent, and at times rude. In an extraordinary restaurant like that, it is all about service, and it was clear our waiter felt that he was " above his job" and couldn't seem to get rid of is quickly enough... frankly ruined our evening.! Will be back for all of the above but will never be served by him again.
There was a large table with 6-8 young children that destroyed the bathroom and were quite noisy in the restaurant. After several attempts to use the restroom and being pushed out by children, I spoke with the manager. He didn't seem interested in doing much but apologizing. It was late in the evening in a very nice restaurant. Who in hell brings their children? We dropped $300 on a meal, including a $100 steak with which we were very unimpressed. I would NOT recommend this restaurant. The manager made several visits to our table, mentioning how he's had to comp several tables because of the children. Did we get anything comped? No.
A four-hour meal that was wonderfully paced. We were given the time to enjoy the creative cocktail selection, very good wine list, and of course, delectable dishes. We couldn't decide so each of us got the First, Second, and Third plates -- all of good portion. The plating was beautiful and cooked perfectly. Oh, and we got dessert, too. The service was attentive, neither haughty or overbearing. And, the maitre'd happily took our picture! A perfect evening with friends. We will return.
We were visiting my daughter in NYC. A friend recommended Gotham to us for a fine dining experience. It is a beautiful place with awesome food. I had the duck breast. It was so very tender with a great tasting sauce and side dishes that complimented the duck. My daughter said her Salmon was the best she has ever had. Service was wonderful. We will be back
Our waiter had a terrible attitude and did not care whether we were happy or not. Three orders of lamb had so much fat on them that there was barely 3 or 4 bites of meat. We have been going to Gotham for years and have been happy every time. We will not be returning!
Wonderful meal. Food was prepared, tasted and served perfectly.
Celebrating Grandson's 21st birthday.
My branzino was superb. And, we could actually talk to each other! What a novelty in NYC restaurants. Lovely round table toward the back was a perfect location.
As with so many restaurants these days....the only disappointment came with the uninformed, unprepared, unappreciative people (mostly tourists) who have no sense of decorum. Between their t-shirts, sneakers, shorts, AND cell phones, they must think they were dining at Denny's!!
Shame management would rather have the dollar$, then the decorum!
Our meal was wonderful!
This is absolutely one of the very best in the City.
The menu is creative without being over the top.
The food is perfectly prepared, even with the adjustments I asked for
(the lamb chops pink inside and charred on the outside.)
Friendly service people.
ready to go back immediately.
