One of America’s most acclaimed and popular restaurants, Danny Meyer’s Union Square Cafe serves robustly flavored, seasonal American cuisine.
At this much-loved American eatery, the eclectic paintings, drawings, and collages assembled over many years are favorites of superstar restaurateur Danny Meyer.
A v. good red wine value: Beaumes de Venise Chateau Redortier's '01 (Rhone Valley). A rich, complex, and earthy grenache-based blend achieves its best, most complex profile in this fantastic vintage.
Don't hesitate--indulge in every course. You really don't want to miss a thing. Lunchtime? Get the tuna burger.
Skip the reservations needed months in advance and pull up to the bar at USC, where the staff is warm+knowledgable about Danny Meyer's excellent food and wine. Fellow diners and environs are friendly.
The half-bottle of Krug for $64 is a real bargain (the BevMo pro is $95). The lemon infused vodka and inspired cocktail menu make brunch here a real win!
The chicken milanesa here is like none other. The chicken cutlet so delicately crumbed and perfectly fried, with a salad on top and salty notes from pecorino, it can't be beat.
Get the Grilled Beef Sirloin & Arugula Salad with mushroom vinaigrette and parmigiano reggiano
Definitely eat at the bar. Great conversations, great crowd.
Consistently delicious - come for lunch (amazing chicken milanese) or for dinner, where you must get the heirloom tomato salad, followed by the gnocchi. Menu changes daily based on what's in season!
The service was incredible! I would aslo reccommend trying the Roasted Pork Dish, it was delicious!
N-Sider favorite: Make sure and order the Banana-Pretzel Cream Pie with Calvados Caramel and Milk Chocolate Ice Cream. It will blow your mind!!!
Make sure to ask for the bone marrow mashed potatoes. You'll shed a tear.
Great seats at the bar early.
I love eating at the bar. It is so much more lively.
Very good place in Union square. Ambience is cosy. Highly recommended. Try the USC Burger with french fries, lamb and goal cheese omelette and for dessert, Banana Pretzel Tart, Macaron Platter
Danny Meyer's original Union Square restaurant, still a very fine place for a meal after 25 years in business.
Sit upstairs. It's nice and cozy. The wild salmon (medium rare) is absolutely delicious. Highly recommend!
We were in the mood for seafood and were simply delighted by the food. For starters the oysters on the half shell were super fresh, and the grilled tuna for our entrée was equally as fresh.
A NearSay Restaurant Week Pick! We recommend the Roasted Berkshire Pork Sandwich followed up with a Raspberry Crumb Cake with Raspberry-Lime Sherbet. Yup, we're in love with Danny Meyer too.
Polenta ravioli. Insane.
ricotta gnocchi omfg
The Wild Mushroom Sformato is a MUST -- it's like foie gras for vegetarians. Delicious!
This burger is what Shake Shack burgers want to be when they grow up. Heirloom tomato salad and chicken Milanese were also fantastic options.
Had a wonderful dinner here with corn soup first. I had the pork and my wife the scallops. Finished with Key Lime Pie and coffee. Nice sparkling wine to start.
Perfect for dinner!
Grab some warm garlic chips! ...Oh, and everything else too :-)
Do yourself a favor and get the chocolate chip bread pudding with Grand Marnier ice cream. Oh my!
order one of the many amazing desserts on the menu!
try the bar, great place to eat if you have not planned ahead
There's a pasta dish there that is still my absolute favorite--even after my trip to Sicily. It's got a tomato-anchovy sauce with breadcrumbs over angel hair, I think. Yum.
Ok, after loving their chocolate babka so much, I now fall in love with their pecan caramel popover!
Their chocolate babka is the best ever I have had in my life!! Strongly recommend this pastry!
Good, very good. Typical NYC restaurant.
Danny Meyer's first restaurant, opened in 1985, and ranked the #1 Most Popular Restaurant in the Zagat Survey an unprecedented nine times.
I hate this place! I wanted to eat on the table but they said that we had to sit on the counter!
Try the Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sundae - Caramelized bananas, whipped cream, hot fudge, caramel popcorn. (via @Foodspotting)

Great food and service right in Union Square. Go for brunch and you'll be back for dinner! Can't miss with anything on the menu but you must try the mashed potatoes!
Blueberry pie might be the best I've ever had, waiter says it's a cult favorite.
Lovely food, unwelcoming rushed service.
Еда неплохая, но обслуживание чудовищно!!! Вина ждали полвека((( Горячее принесли и норовили поставить мне прямо в тот момент, когда я несла устрицу от блюда ко рту, тарелку под эти устрицы не дали
