Horrible dining experience - had two young kids with us and we didn’t receive our food until sitting there for 1.5 hours. We were told five more minutes or less than five minutes over and over again. While the meal was on the house, the salmon came out cold, pizza was terrible, and overall was a negative experience.

Made reservations here based on prior recommendations, before seeing Hamilton. Everything was wonderful, from the service to the food to the wine. Highly recommend. We both selected the pre fixe dinner and both chose the salmon. Absolutely delicious.

The drinks were inventive and delicious. Food was well-prepared and seasoned and tasted good.
Although the bread was fresh, there was nothing distinctive or unusual about it; it was just a couple of different types of rolls in a basket.

Great location near the theatres. Really liked the atmosphere. Was cozy and relatively quiet for being very full. Food was tasty. Great pre-theatre menu! Great price! The staff was very friendly. Will definitely go again when I am in New York City.

Do not go pre theater. Took over 1 hour to get 3 simple salads pre Matinee. Almost late for the show. Food is good but give more than 2 hours for lunch.

Overall my dining experience was just ok. We wanted to do the prefixe pre-theater menu for the sake of time, but I could not due to dietary restrictions (I don't eat beef/pork),but the Waitress advised they could not remove the pork from the dish or even just plate the scallops alone. That was very annoying, so I opted to forego that menu and went with the special, grilled octopus...it was not good at all and I love grilled octopus, eat it all the time. This was very fatty and rubbery. My entree was supposed to be spicy, there was no spice at all. The zeppoli's were the only thing I enjoyed. I don't think I would ever eat there again.

Had lunch here before seeing waitress. Our reservation for 12 allowed us to have a great lunch prior to the show. Overall it was good. Our server was nice but a little anxious, maybe new. My friend had two mimosas spilled on her entire back and our server apologized. I thought it deserved more than that, perhaps a drink or lunch comped since she needed to spend the rest of the day, including seeing the show while drenched across her back with orange juice and champagne. I’m sure it wasn’t pleasant.

If you are going to a show make sure you give yourself more than 2 hrs for dinner. Service is slow, slow, slow. I frequently went to this restaurant in the past but I just can’t trust the service and having to gulp down my meal. This has occurred more than once. It is to bad because the food is usually tasty.

The sausage terrine with tomato jam was outstanding! The pear "carpaccio," filet mignon, and warm chocolate cake with berries and vanilla gelato were very good. The noise level gets a bit high when the restaurant is full, but that's to be expected.

The prix fixe menu is an excellent value for Manhattan.

Glass House Tavern's location makes it exceptionally convenient for pre-theatre meals.
