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
Gotham takes itself very seriously. The food is worth it. It was rather odd to have to wait for a table when we arrived for our reservation at 5:30 and the restaurant had just opened - and as we waited other groups arriving after we did were seated first. We were a group of four older women.
One of my favorite places to eat when in NY - always ticks the boxes. This time, not so much - the food and atmosphere was great - what I expected - the service, not so much - the wait staff had zero personality - our waiter was not engaging or helpful. It really soured our experience - especially when you bring a real foodie with you - do have to say the sommelier was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. For the money that you spend at this place, the service needs to be better.
We're there at the opening on Sunday...5pm. Therefore it was very quiet but it's the way I like it.
The food is spectacular, service just perfect and ambience quiet and classy in a very comfortable way.
Of course you pay for such a meal. But it's perfect for celebrating an occasion you wish to remember .
Great food. Although we requested a table in the back we were put at a banquet in the front along the bar. Sort of understandable given we are not at this restaurant often. Great service, worth going back. Hopefully we will establish a relationship that will earn us a better table.
What an amazing experience! The service was absolutely impeccable! The food was not only beautifully elegantly displayed, but was absolutely delicious! Every bite was an experience. Even the drinks were fabulous. The dinner was not cheap, but it was absolutely worth every penny and I didn't say that about my last 2 restaurant meals.
It was all fine. But for some strange reason the host sat us at the second table inside the front door and I didn't feel we were in the restaurant. And there were plenty of open tables. I hosted three people from outside NYC and I felt bad that they couldn't get the full feel of the room. No idea why the host wouldn't ask where we would prefer to sit?
Classic New York restaurant that combines great service with great food. It starts out at a world class bar where mixologists prepare classic drinks with incredible precision. The service is warm and makes you feel very welcome. The wine list is superb and integrated with an incredible menu. We dined on the branzino that was outstanding while the 28 day aged stray was equally phenomenal. We dined on decadent desserts and in total had an incredible experience.
We had dinner with friends at Gotham on a Sunday night. We arrived early and had a drink at the bar. The atmosphere was warm and the staff friendly. It was my first visit to this restaurant, but certainly won't be my last. It was a very spacious and elegant setting and did not have the cacophony usually associated with NYC restaurants.
We ordered appetizers and dinner. The branzino was crispy and delicious. The chicken was succulent. The steak and pork chops perfectly cooked.
We were greeted by a gentleman that gave us the impression we were not part of the "A" list . The waitress was completely disengaged , and it felt like we were rushed through the meal no time to relax and enjoy the ambiance,all about the turnover. Food was delicious, but would not return for the money and the experience .
Gotham knows the business of service! They do not disappoint! From entry to exit they got it covered! The staff is genuinely nice and knowledgeable! The price point was not overly exaggerated either! The quality of the food and portion sizes and well worth what you pay!
