    Great setting in Central Park. Good menu and most people liked their food. My vegetarian meal of cauliflower florets on cauliflower purée was delicious, despite concern when ordering. Service is slow.

    The Bitches say: B. Be prepared to pay a pretty penny for brunch, but the ambiance and sweet treats are worth it. Worth going to once - be sure to sit outside & bask in the glory of Central Park. Read more

    Nice hangout place.. food is awesome; service is great. Lunch, brunch, dinner.. doesn’t matter. Try their truffle fries. It’s inside Central Park with live music, ambience can’t better.

    Came here 4 brunch & requested table in the sun room (formerly the famous room that was renovated). Got the pastry basket which was worth the wait till my eggs Benedict w/ salmon arrived. Delicious.

    A must go to for brunch! The restaurant is gorgeous and the food is better. Perfect place for a trendy brunch with my girls. The bacon appetizer was the best bacon I’ve ever had. Couldn’t go wrong.

    Brunch was amazing. Wedge salad was very good, Maine lobster roll delicious, grilled steak with eggs and potatoes was splendid, tasty lemonade, salmon tartare was OK. Overall it was a good experience.

    Great food and good drinks. Pricey but very good location and love the terrace. The waiter was nice but decided to take all money instead of changing. We asked it back to give a tip ourselves.

    In the summer, enjoy live music on the huge patio. You can have a full meal out there, or just a drink at the bar if you don't want to spend the $$$.

    The scrambled eggs are seasoned perfectly, so don't be put off by its humble presentation! French toast is worth its price and scrumptious.

    Risotto, Caesar salad, salmon, Coq a vin, filet all wonderful. Apple crisp and carrot cake desserts were good, but not fabulous. Probably would skip dessert. Hostesses and wait staff were so nice.

    The outdoor patio and bar is a great place to drink wine and watch the world go by. If you are lucky they'll have a great jazz two as well.

    One of my favorite spots to snag a cocktail in Central Park especially in the summer. Sit out on the patio and watch everyone buzzing around the park.

    Love the outdoor cocktail garden overlooking Central Park especially with the live jazz on a sunny afternoon. Gorgeous restaurant space and nice indoor bar also.

    Nice brunch, and not that expensive by NYC standards. Tasty Bloody Mary but it seemed a little light on alcohol. Fun place to go given the location and history.

    At the beer garden outside you can ask for their regular bar menu which gets you more selection of food and cocktails. But it's a beer garden!

    A hip spot for a breakfast in Central Park, super cozy and tasty. Take a flatbread if you want something nutritious

    Great option for larger groups—there's a ton of space and the place is very bright. It's pricey, but you'll have trouble finding something bad on the menu.

    Pricey but worth it. If you are seating in the restaurant, try the Fig Salad. If you go to the bar, order the pretzel!

    Great beer garden, perfect place for a summer night. We got there around 8pm and it wasn't very crowded. Recommended for groups. The place is kinda overpriced tho.

    French toast was best we have ever had. Blueberry compote was excellent, not too sweet.
