The location is very nice in Bryant Park. A nice 'quiet' spot in the busy City. The Grill lacks a decent wine menu and the wines per glass ($14,-) are not special at all. Had a Ribeye which was well prepared however finished with a...More

Bryant Park Grill is located in a great scenic setting in Bryant Park in the middle of Midtown Manhattan. This is a high end restaurant and all of the food was great.

Except for the view and the rooftop exp, there was nothing good about this place. Probably once of the worst entrees I have ever had. It was raw onion, raw tomatoes and some cold chicken in it. Horrible!. Would never return!

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors
imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like
the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is
a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of

According to OpenTable the restauarant only schedules bookings 30 days in advance via its app. Why not email the restaurant directly or call them on (212) 840-6500 during their NYC opening hours (11:30 am - 11:00pm)
