Success! Thanks for posting your review of Pete's Tavern. You’ve done the world some good today.


Though it's been a while, i'm sure not much has changed at pete's. The food is good, and so is the staff and patrons. And every once in a while you see a celebrity. Dan Akroyd gave me $20 once for bringing him a martini. You gotta love Pete's! Oh yeah, in response to BillFrisk's review, c'mon Bill, give them a break! You know the kitchen staff work really hard to put out good food. and the mangement is n... view more

A Classic and Great NY Bar

This is bar is listed in the great BEST BARS OF NEW YORK book-- and it deserves it. The front of the bar was packed. It certainly isn't a hidden gem. But a gem it is. Pictures, notes, plaques from Pete's 100 year history cover the walls. The wood paneling in front stinks in the best possible way... of a long and proud antiquity. \r All the servers were great. Willing to have a conversation... on anything... at the d... view more

Hadn't been for fifteen years

I moved from beloved NYC to Atlanta over fifteen years ago, I used to live in Gramercy Park and Pete's Tavern was always one of my favorite spots. After fifteen years, I returned with my husband and two children..I must say my experience was FABULOUS!!! They were so helpful with high chairs and booster seats for the kids, and even had items they could order off the menu!!!!! My husband and I both had Prime Rib which ... view more

The worst restaurant experience

Besides getting sick from the food, the wait staff was horrible. We actually thought our waitress was stoned or drunk. My friends and I will never go back there again.

After 4 decades, I still love it!

I started eating here in the early 70's, and every trip back to New York includes at least one dinner and one brunch at Pete's. The bar is terrific, and the food has generally been very good. My kids [adults now] really enjoy the pasta ala pete. You can't beat the atmosphere, and the staff is always attentive and efficient. And a walk around Gramercy Park after dinner doesn't hurt either.

My friend and I went there after work for drinks outside and some appetizers. Drinks were fine, service was slow and at best unorganized. I ordered fried calamari, very basic. The order came out half cooked the batter was doughy and raw, COMPLETELY tasteless. I sampled a few disgusting bites and waited almost a half an hour before our waiter came back to our table so that I could express my dissatifaction. I showed h... view more

not interested in party of 1

I left the restaurant I work at in search of outside seating, a good beer and burger....My GM reminded me about Pete's Tavern...I've been to Pete's before and enjoyed I was pretty excited to go and get some good food, relax after a day at work at my own restaurant...unfortunately, it didn't quite happen as I had imagined...I was greeted and ceremoniously dismissed by the male host who said ""we don't sea... view more

we were let down

The Bartender was very nice and helped us as soon as we came in. Our waitress didn't seem to care whether or not we received good service. In fact, she made us feel as if we were a nuisance when we ordered our food. This led us to believe she must be in some way related to the owner. We gave her the benefit of the doubt after our first encounter. But when she messed up several items in our order, we asked for he... view more
