Excellent Historical Dining

AMAZING! I really enjoyed the food...the crab cakes are to die for and the beef wellington is fantastic. My friend got the Beef Roast which was also delicious. The staff are very friendly and helpful with suggestions on price fixe that changes weekly. Can only imagine the the menu. We also asked to see the lunch menu which is different from the dinner to find out that every week Fraunces Tavern offers a $20.09 three... view more

Rude, Nasty, and Not Worth the Time

Forget the restaurant. Making the reservations was a miserable experience. This nasty and arrogant ""girl"" answers the phone, puts me on hold for 5 minutes, comes back on the phone while chomping on food, huffing and puffing while I am asking the latest time to get reservations because I am lecturing that night, and then when I ask her if I am being a bother because she obviously doesn't want to be on the phone - ... view more

WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!

My husband and I came to New York for a talk at the Met on Dutch Art. My husband is an artist who works in Still life and Interiors. One of our goals was to visit the Frauncus Tavern, which was presented as an elegant historical museum and restaurant by their website. \r We got to the area, after much traffic and expensive parking, only to find it closed. We were very disappointed so we ate elsewhere. On our w... view more

Needs New Management

My coworkers and I have been holding happy hours at this place for the past 2 years and have seen it rapidly go downhill until it reached rock bottom last week. The bartenders and waitresses used to be awesome, greeting us by name, never messing up orders etc but most have been replaced by inexperienced people who constantly mess up orders and ""accidently"" slip drinks on our tab. This has happened on several occa... view more

Surprisingly Classy!

I work in the Financial District and most places to eat around here are quite seedy. A friend was visiting for lunch one day and I took her to Fraunces, expecting the usual pub food and atmosphere based on the word ""Tavern"" in the name. We were very surprised to find ourselves ushered into a nice dining room full of older men conducting business meetings at tables covered in clean linen cloths. As two casually dres... view more

NYC's historical past

New York City is one of the oldest cities in what is today the United States. Yet as most NYC residents and tourists can testify to New York is also a city constantly on the move, always exhibiting the modern while keeping some essence of its past. Fraunces Tavern Museum is a source of this essence. It is the one location in New York whether visitors can get a glimpse of how New York fight alongside cities famous ... view more

This unassuming museum, tucked away above the more famous restaurant, is a hidden gem.

As you walk over creaking (unfortunately non-original) floorboards of the oldest building in Manhattan, it's fascinating to imagine what lower Manhattan, the cradle of European settlement in New York, must have been like as a skyscraper-less, bustling seaport. The museum is most striking when it plays to the visitor's visual-historical imagination in this way: the heart of the museum is the ""Long Room"" where George... view more

Hidden Treasure

I attended a rehearsal dinner at the Tavern towards the end of March 2006 in one of the private rooms. I was pleasantly surprised. The food, the service and the decor were all top notch. There is a very friendly and knowledgeable staff in regards to the rich history that the Tavern represents. I have been back twice and have not been disappointed. I would highly recommend trying it for your self. Whether it is a par... view more

beautiful experience

I went here late night with a friend and was surprised that they were still seating. The staff was kind and prompt and the food was great. I loved how historica everything was, from the seats, to the lamps, even the cultery had a flair for class. I throughly enjoyed my experience here.

A Very Old Flame Brightly Burns

Fraunces Tavern is a terrific place to spoon and dine with the same fireplace the original G-Dubs set himself afront lit warmly in the spacious, elegant, aged oldest retaurant in New York City. Washington said goodbye to his troops here, but this is a great place for an unforgettable hello! Enjoy the ale, and history!
