I don't think we need to return.

We enjoyed dinner at Tavern on the Green during Restaurant Week. Reading the reviews prior to going, we knew that most likely we’d be in for a touristy experience but wanted to try it our for ourselves.

We ate in the Crystal Room, which was decorated in a fairy-tale of pastel colors and chandeliers. It was quite lovely with the trees outside festooned with little white lights, and knowing that kitsch is what sells Tavern, this suited us just fine. However, we were a bit disgruntled by the photographers standing by each table, asking for a photograph to “capture the wonderful memory of eating at Tavern on the Green”. Blech, can you BE any more hideously overt and tacky? Please, Tavern, banish this practice immediately.

My beau ordered off the Restaurant Week menu: orecchiette to start, salmon as main course, and chocolate cake for dessert. I ordered off the Pre-Theatre menu: iceberg lettuce wedge to start, herb-crusted filet of beef as main course, and creme brulee for dessert. The orecchiette was good but nothing amazing, and while I thoroughly enjoyed the iceberg wedge, it compared with the one I had at Junior’s diner. The salmon and beef were delicious and cooked perfectly. The chocolate cake looked amazing, but typical of commercially-prepared desserts was missing the depth of a good chocolate flavor. The creme brulee was a little disappointing because it tasted of torch fuel more than anything.

The service was impeccable but having eaten at Tavern, I don’t think we need to return.

the only thing this place has going for it is the decor. The good was one of the worst I’ve had. My crab bisque was on the salty side. The spaghettini with baby manila claims was bland, felt like they boiled pasta and threw in 6 clams. Go here to walk around for the view, but definitely not for the food.

Food wasn’t anything special here. You’re really paying for the nice ambience.

I went because it’s a legendary place, but honestly, I wasn’t impressed. The food was good enough, but service wasn’t too good. We had reservations, but still had to wait around. The decor is really ornate and pretty classic. It kindof reminded me of the all the New Orleans patio dining restaurants, but it shows no innovation, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

I probably wouldn’t go again…much cheaper places have much better food and seem to run better.
