Service
 
“Reliably superb” French–New American cuisine “as modern as the art” is the deal at Danny Meyer’s “effortlessly chic” eatery inside MoMA, where the “tranquil” dining room boasts “lovely” sculpture garden views and service is “impeccable” ( “refreshing” no-tipping policy notwithstanding); such “high-end sophistication” is unsurprisingly “pricey” , but the “more casual” front bar area is “easier on the wallet.”

Very good food - perhaps great, but not exceptional. The truffle didn't quite stand out, but overall, the meal was pleasing. It's a great place for a serious date or business dinner. I'd prefer to sit in the bar area as it's less formal, since it's awkward being split between a super formal venue and a fancy restaurant. As for the service, it was top notch, which is what you'd expect at a Michelin. They kept refilling waters, bringing drinks, and serving us wine. The food came out decently quickly, which took about 3 hours. I'd return here again for the bar area, but unlikely the restaurant. My pictures show a lot of the food we ate - the main thing that stood out was the pretzel bread.

My wife and I had lunch in the kitchen at the chef's table. I highly recommend it. The meal was outstanding and the service was top notch . We were presented with 7 course meal and 2 desserts. Each course was a delight to the palate. The chef and his team were outstanding in delivery and personal. The lunch was a memory that my wife and I will remember for a long time. It is well worth it . Don't hesitate , you will not be disappointed.

The food was amazing. It's a tad pricey given what they serve but overall a very pleasurable experience. We spent a little over an hour touring the museum looking at art and then went straight to dinner. Makes the experience better imo. Great art and great food.
