The restaurant was virtually empty, yet service was still incredibly slow. The food was delicious, but very small portions.

Food was very tasty. Service a bit slow. Ambiance a bit lacking. Place pretty run down, really. But everyone was very friendly and accommodating.

Food was small portions.
Appetizer with beets = a joke.
Gnochi with a not so tasty sauce.
Salads limited presentation.
Falafel were cold.
Seriously over priced.

Great food and great customer service. Loved the staff's recommendations and the meals brought. A bit pricey (5th Ave) and the the ambiance was an interesting space.

The service was excellent. The ambience was minimalist, Very white, and empty to my eye and experience. The food was very expensive and the presentation was blah. The burger arrived on a white plate with fries next to it, some dressing, and a notable blank space on the plate. Then came a notable sized check...for an average lunch...

Food absolutely underwhelming. Chopped chicken salad was bland although there was an effortless to put vegetables in it. I couldn’t tell you what the salad dressing was. The server (also the bartender) would talk about the dishes but was contradictory and misleading to the point of making you wonder whether she knew what she was talking about. My coffee cup had more coffee splashed on the outside of the cup than in it. I didn’t mind the small venue but it is not inspired especially within an art environment.

Brunch before visiting the Guggenheim. First thing first: service was hands-down the best part. Big smiles, friendly, good vibes, just like service should be. Besides that, a grim note: I was the only one in the room, 11.45 in the hype of Nyc brunch on Saturday morning, moreover inside one of the most popular museums in town. Should this be a red flag, given that prices are affordable and menu can easily suit all dietary preferences and restrictions? For a restaurant, yes definitely. I can’t really complain, got a vegan bowl that filled me up for 25$ and did nothing more. Ingredients perhaps were first-quality who knows, but overall it Tasted rather bland and was as cold as the wide, empty, white room I was sitting in, alone. Thank god for the cheerful service!

The food was excellent and our waitress was terrific. She was accommodating, friendly and helpful.
However, we needed to be completely finished by 2 PM in time for our tour and it took too long to get the bill for 9 people settled. We were late for the tour which was extremely disappointing.

The lobster and grits entree was delicious. The service was very good. The room was less than I expected, but it was in style with the building. I would return and I would recommend to my friends. Thank you.

La meilleure option pour démarrer ou clôturer la visite du musée Guggenheim. Le service est avenant et rapide, la nourriture fraiche et simple. Le décors est arty mais pas trop. Reposant et frais.

The Wright restaurant inside the Guggenheim Museum is a lovely space with some delicious food. In particular we enjoyed the asparagus appetizer and the salmon main course. Our waiter (don't know his name) was quite wonderful. His recommendations were good, including his wine recommendation. The space is "spare" but very nice, in keeping with the Frank Lloyd Wright esthetic. My only negative comment is that the menu is very limited, and I think the prices are a bit high for what one gets (and, yes, I live in Manhattan -- I know things are expensive here). However, overall, it was a great location to meet for a friends dinner, followed by a visit to the museum.

It was open for dinner and it was convenient so we went. But dinner was an afterthought for restaurant and really a disservice to diners. Only a few tables were in use. Forget about something like bread for table. Server was friendly enough and food tasted fine but the presentation left much to be desired. To top off, we tried to get a burger to go to bring home for our son, and they said the kitchen was closed and chef had left. It was 8:15pm. Maybe a different experience at lunch but why bother for dinner.

I love the service. The food was outstanding.
I ordered the shrimp salad with rhubarb. Vegetables were fresh and crisp. My son ordered the asparagus caviar salad. He is not a salad eater. However, he enjoyed his salad.
I will definitely come back.

We had a terrific lunch. Highly recommend the 50/50 burger. Our server was delightful and concluded our celebratory lunch with a piece of cake and a battery operated votive candle to "blow out" for one of our threesome who was celebrating her birthday.

The food was fine but slightly insipid. The service was lovely and the venue was comfortable and pleasant. For the price the food really should be better. The rolls that came with the burrata were not a good match for the cheese, they were too soft and too sweet, making the dish lack nuance and texture. I wanted to like it better because it really is a pretty place and I love the museum. Even so, for the convenience and the ambience, I would not rule it out when visiting the museum.
