    Old school cocktails. Martini is huge--you get what you pay for. Burger good, also quite large. Bartenders super friendly.

    Classic New York spot with a gorgeous, stuffy dining room. The Cobb salad was fully disgusting, but the vehicle

    It is an institution and food isn't bad but service can be hit and miss and they come after you until they confirm that you checked in coat...

  • Lauren H.

    Expensive, but worth going once during restaurant week. Glad we checked it off our list but won't be coming back

    Dress code or no entry.

  • Ina L.

    More for the atmosphere and its legacy than its food. The Prawn for appetizer is good but nothing too special, and the Amish chicken is a little dry and very mediocre

    One of my goto places for business lunch meetings. Good service & good food.

    Ricky Sherrill · January 22
  • Theodore K.

    Ask your waiter about touring the spectacular hidden wine cellar in the basement, which was used to hide booze during Prohibition. It's this place's semi-secret gem.

    An iconic must-do in NYC

    Highly recommend the Dover Sole.

    They can provide a jacket. Fun memorabilia on the ceiling.

    The $34 burger is pretty awesome. But I mean, like yeah.

    The martini here is an unsung hero of the hip NYC mixology scene—big and dry, like Charles Grodin in drink form, it floats to you in a glass so capacious there ought to be a goldfish swimming in it. Read more

    So they shift you downstairs feel its dishonest when you book for upstairs - not experience to make you come back

    Shift women downstairs- disappointing

    I wouldn't say their food is out of this world but their customer service is impeccable!

    Try the Creme Brulee

    Come here for a memorable dinner and wonderful service! The ceiling was also a source of entertainment.

    Book well in advance. Especially for Saturday evenings!

  • WildHorses

    Food was ho-hum on Thanksgiving Day. One of my companions said their cafeteria food was better at prep school. Even the apple pie (not pumpkin - huh?) tasted like something from the grocery store.

  • Kevin R.

    Ask for a tour of their historic wine cellar. I swear...you've never seen anything quite like it.

    Kevin Rozell · November 18, 2013
  • Serious Eats

    It may be stuffy, but if old-school, Don Draper Manhattan is your thing, there's nowhere better. And much of the food is still quite good. At lunch, get three courses for $24.

    The food wasn't anything spectacular, but I was here for a corporate event so perhaps that's why

    Went in w/out reservation and they couldn't have been more accommodating. Service was great and food was delicious. Interesting crowd.

  • Mike R.

    One of the worst, most expensive Old Fashioned cocktails I've ever had. For $16 it should be made with a muddled $5 bill, not maraschino cherries.

    Mike Rugnetta · April 10, 2013
  • Hayley M.

    pricey place but stop for lunch and order from the 3 course pre-fix menu! Great value there and the place has ambiance!

    Ask for a side of 21 Sauce, a spicy blend of ketchup, English mustard, Worcestershire, horseradish and white wine, the sauce has been a signature staple for over 60 years. Via CityEats.com Read more

    $50 for a dram of Balvenie Portwood 21 year old! Sheesh!

    The cellar is Amazing, the upstairs room more romantic , but any place is a great historic piece of America

    We love the decor at 21 Club almost as much as we love the menu. Let us suggest two things. Get dressed up and see "Bethany", then come to the 21 Club Bar!

    great bar and food

    Sit under Mark Ingram's Heisman-winning helmet in the right dining room or Joe Namath's Jets' helmet in the middle towards the back. ROLL TIDE!
