The service at Gramercy Tavern in New York is in a class all its own. Upon arrival, we were properly greeted and kept informed on the status of our reservation and notified exactly when our table would be ready. Once seated, our waitress was not only patient, but also impressively knowledgeable. She was happy to suggest wine pairings for the courses we selected from the three-course prix fixe menu, and when we were indecisive about what to order, she gave spot-on recommendations that helped us make the right choice. She was conversational, too — and genuinely interested in making sure that our dining experience at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant was what we wanted it to be. She checked in after each course was delivered, but didn’t pester us while we dined. Despite managing a number of tables, and maintaining the pace of our meal, she still made us feel like we could sit there all night, rare for a restaurant with reservations booked solid.
