We had the pretheatre three course meal. Food looked like it was carelessly plated. Kale salad was ok. The chicken dish was bland. The bacon mushroom gravy was salty and pooled in one section of dish. Rice pudding looked like gruel and was not cooked. Carrot cake was good. Wine list only offered high priced wine. Glad I did not... More

We have been coming to 21 for 10 years and every time we visit NYC we come there for drinks and dinner. We have become friends with some of the staff and we are always warmly welcomed. Upstairs at 21 is a romantic spot and the food and service are excellent.

The 21 Club is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always outstanding, delivered hot and beautifully presented. The entire staff is friendly. They even participate in New York's Restaurant Week, if someone wishes to give them a try and be able to take advantage of a 3 course meal at a discount - $29 for lunch and $42... More

To be honest: from a noble place like this good service(lot of servants), very pricey you simply expect better food. We took the menu during the Restaurant week ( tuna Avocado appetizer,lamb as main & Icecream as desert) The Appetizer was very delicious but the lamb was way too small. Half of the piece served was containing bones and the... More

I always try and have a meal at the 21 Club if possible when I visit New York. The ambience in amazing, food always impeccable and if you want an early supper the pre show fixed price menu is incredible value for money

I was there for a private function dinner. The ambience makes you feel that you're in the early 20th century New York. It was a fixed host menu, but the steak and desert were great.

Attended during restaurant week - setting has lots of character and history . Food as good and service excellent. A dress code is enforced - jackets for men - fun place to dress up and dine in a classic venue.

Visited at lunchtime for a bar snack and drinks. Lovely bar/club with loads of history and great decor. Don't arrive in jeans if you want to go through to the restaurant, friendly service and very tasty light bites.

Have been several times over the years. Great food great service. We gave then our company logo to mount in the bar area-had to search to find it again but it is still hanging. Took my daughter and her 4 month old son. The staff was very considerate and helpful with our situation.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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 store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
