Most New York City restaurants would consider themselves lucky to even get a review in The Times. In the 29 years that it’s been around, Gotham Bar and Grill has been reviewed no fewer than six times by the Gray Lady. Even more impressive? It has scored 15 stars — five three-star reviews (four is the best) since chef Alfred Portale took it over in 1985. You can argue about what other restaurants could better stand in for this Greenwich Village institution as the standard-bearer of American haute cuisine — yellowfin tuna tartare with miso–ginger vinaigrette, pheasant and foie gras terrine with black trumpet mushrooms and baby Chioggia beets, Skuna Bay salmon with caramelized fennel and Swiss chard and potato confit — but few would debate the merits of the classic dishes here or the restaurant's long-term commitment to innovation.

French pastry doesn't get better than this, try the Tarte Tatin for two. The best flaky pie crust of your life brushed with a burnished coat of glazed puff pastry, & inside the soft baked apples glow.

Amazing from top to bottom

The space and service is just impeccable.Worth every delicious penny.

The chocolate cake is out of this world. I would come back just for that.
A New York classic, they serve up some of the freshest, most seasonal New American dishes. I love to invite out-of-towners for a mid-day meal–their $25 prix-fixe weekday lunch is a steal!
The Food Sluts
While highly rated, waistcoat waiters & modest menu (this place was opened in 1984) seem dated. Generous portions but snooty staff.

New York Habitat
The quintessential NYC restaurant, their 3 course dinner is a must. We recommend the seared foie gras and finish your meal up with their scrumptious chocolate cake for dessert.

The tuna tartare at Gotham is legendary for good reason. Don’t overlook the seasonally-influenced pastas either. - Inspector

Order seafood salad or tuna tartare. Follow with Thai-spiced lobster or steak. And ask for help on the wine. Do prom right this time around.
Old time favorite…where my husband and I had our first date. We dine there at least twice a month. -Dina Manzo, Real Housewives of NJ
Did you notice Andy Warhol's iconic "Brooklyn Bridge" in the front window? Look around, and you may also find works by Diane Arbus, Arther Leipzig, William Klein, and Hiroshi Sugimoto. (via ARTINFO
Entering this temple of American gastronomy, take notice of Warhol's Brooklyn Bridge at the front window, Sugimoto's work on the front platform, and the large Vera Lutter in the dining room.
The Corcoran Group
A true NYC staple, dinner at Gotham Bar and Grill is a must at least once in your life. Try the black bass ceviche followed by the rack of lamb for a truly unforgettable experience.
Love the HIGH food salads. -Jill Zarin, Real Housewives of New York City

Go to Gotham Bar and Grill. Order something from the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd menus. Make sure you get the foie gras.
