The Bryant Park Grill is the crown jewel of New York City’s Bryant Park. Located just behind the New York Public Library, this secluded oasis offers a lush and luxurious setting for lunch, dinner, brunch or drinks.
A classic New York City spot, great for business casual lunches. The atrium makes for a great dining experience! The Cobb salad and the calamari are great. Pair with the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
The Grand Marnier Marinated Duck Breast & Confit Leg was sublime. The duck was succulent & filled with a delectable orange flavour. The crepe had hints of cinnamon & complemented the duck perfectly.
A scenery restaurant in the city's heart. Sitting outside in nice weather and inside in rainy/snowy days are both gorgeous. I did pay much attention to the food, you shouldn't, should you?
Great for brunch or dinner, and it's always worth it to grab a table on the patio if it's nice out. If you're dining here for dinner, definitely order the sea bass.
7.21.13 Great restaurant in my favorite park. We had dinner after seeing "Forever Tango" - blue crab app, mushroom ravioli, baked strozzapreti pasta dinner, chocolate tart dessert & of course Mojitis!
Restaurant has a pleasant ambience with seating for parties of all sizes. Menu has wide range of options priced reasonably. Char grilled tenderloin was excellent as was service. Will go again!
Great outdoor bar. Just close enough to the public library to feel like you're getting some culture and intellectual stimulation while downing vodka tonics out of plastic cups.
They have couscous salad with lobster on the menu, but the better idea is to order the vegetarian quinoa cherry wheat salad, and then have them add the lobster!!
Please emphasize more how much I'm supposed to tip you. Jesus, can you be more passive aggressive? Good outdoor seating, lackluster service and food.
The food is excellent. Haven't had a bad meal. However the service has gotten pretty bad the last couple of times here. Service seems to be heading downhill.
Better avoid it. Been on january 1st, very slow service, average food, the men's bathroom run out of water and lot's of people waiting inside the restaurant (bothering sitted ones).
Went at 2pm: Lunch staff didn't know who ordered what, & served the entree while I was still chewing my app (probably because the kitchen was closing at 3). Do not get the steak. Ravioli was meh.
Definitely recommend it for business meeting. Great service even for lunch time. I've had the salmon and the chocolate cake both delicious.
If you come here, it's for the atmosphere. Food is pretentiously unspectacular and the service honestly leaves a lot to be desired... Even by New York standards.
Very average and way over priced. Nice view of the park though portions are very small. Fish tacos were tiny and the bbq pork just tasted like bbq sauce.
Great fare, cocktails and ambiance but beware the aggressive vultures that like to swarm, then attack. Pretending to speak another language usually helps.
They open for brunch at 11.30 👌🏼 nice terrace seating area .. Shakshooka is very good.
Decent place for lunch in the area. I was, however, surprised when my chicken Caesar salad came out as a salad and a side of chicken.
The nearby outdoor public restrooms are the nicest in the city. Lines are often long with tourists, but worth it. So clean.
Protip: get a table on the roof. It's a great view of Bryant Park and can be less crowded than inside or the patio.
A respite from the armpit of Manhattan. Great menu and super friendly bartenders. This is not a tip..just sayin'
Nice stop after walking/studying in the NYC Public Library. Beautiful 4-season view of Bryant park in summer and ice skating in winter
delicious food! we had the lamb kebabs and a salad to start, the seafood tartar was excellent
There's outdoor seating facing Bryant Park, so a great place to go for outdoor brunch if it's nice out.
For dessert try the Bananas for Bananas. Incredible! I also had the quinoa salad that I don't recommend.
Tremendous venue with a view of the park. Great place to meet for a drink. Food is mediocre unfortunately.
All lunch sandwiches are served with watermelon which really add a nice touch for the summer!
The Grilled Hanger steak has really good flavor! Frozen margarita is made with just enough kick. Enjoy!
Jumbo lump crab cakes, persimmon frisée salad, sashimi tuna tacos are all solid choices! Yum!
Good food, classic New York ambiance, next to the NY public library. Beautiful winter here!
One of the amazing venues in NYC for a wedding or event celebration. The food, the service and the attention to details.
Getting a reservation you're not easy and help is not always great
Very clever Foursquare special at this NYC landmark. Learn more about Foursquare and mobile marketing in The Power of Foursquare
Go for the roof - a bit more laid back than downstairs. Food was better than expected.
The newbie special needs to be taken off. The server denied the request when we showed him the special.
A table on the roof is my fav. Less crowded and nice view of Bryant Park.
The oysters were orgasmic. I was pleasantly surprised. Great place for fancy lunch.
Some places specialize in farm-to-table. This place specializes in freezer-to-grill-to-table.
Get the panko crusted chicken panini! Amazing! Perfect lunch spot on a nice day.
Quinoa salad was awesome!!!! Also must try tomato and mozzarella appetizer!!!!!
The free dessert with a pic of a bird was a nice treat. Beautiful restaurant, reasonably priced, great dinner.
Vincente was our server & his service was awful. If you get him, ask to move to another table.
Lamb Burgers and Crab Cakes. Order as your entree. TI DIE FOR
Really nice, relaxed atmosphere. Both waiter & self serve bar.
Great place for drinks. Only negative is the public bathrooms= long lines.
Awesome place to have lunch, relax, enjoy friends and people watch!
go to the roof for drinks and the view, but definitely not for the food.
Their burratta salad is like heaven in your mouth 👌
Nice rooftop bar atop of the restaurant with views over Bryant Park.
Had a spiritual experience while eating the seafood salad. Perfect compliment to a beautiful day.
