Just right! – I was recently on a business trip to NYC for a convention and staying at Ink48 (across the street). TheFeastdotcom had some excellent reviews for the Landmark Tavern which I would have to concur with; the Shepards Pie was excellent, the music was great, and the upkeep of this historic tavern was truly impressive. You won't be disappointed!
YUMMY! – Our group of 8, ages 12 to 68, went on the circleline cruise & walked to the tavern after. We had lunch and everyone's order was yummy. More than enough food portions, fish & chips had 2 BIG slabs of fish. Mash & bangers was tastey, red fish was very good, steak wrap had LOTS of steak. Although its a "tavern" the food was more than bar food. Manager was very friendly & helpful.
Bouncer and Mgmt are HOT MESSES – This was my first time here and my last. From the moment the bouncer ID'd my BF. He was annoying. My friend wrote a review below and all is extremely accurate. The only thing is I don't regret telling the bouncer he was being extremely over bearing and that we were not in a club so he should BACK OFF!. I didn't call him a name. But, i was very stern with him and asked him to stop harassing paying customers. I also mentioned I complained about his behavior to mgmt. Which I did and to be honest i truly believe that the bouncer's behavior was because of the Mgr request. So 2 were playing at this game.
The bouncer most definitely over reacted by my words of truth and would not let me in again. I had my CC at the bar. All i wanted to do was get it and close my tab. Which turned into him grabbing me forcefully and pushing me out. I called 911 got my CC back with nothing charged on it (the least they can do).
As big as this bouncer was i felt sad for him. I wasn't afraid of him in anyway. The fact that he took what i said and made it into a big deal was sad. Especially since all NYC bouncers adore me. It was as if i was talking to challenged person. He deserved to hear it and just MAYBE this 5'2" lady speaking up and standing up to these guys can help other patrons wanting to spend a nice ngt out drinking without being harassed a chance to enjoy themselves.
peace n love always
Not going back until the bouncer is on medication – Before last night, I went to Landmark Tavern on a Saturday afternoon and really enjoyed it. The bar was not crowded, the bartender was friendly, and it was a great place to grab a drink away from the midtown crowds.
Last night my opinion of the place completely changed. We arrived with a group of 13 people and, even though the bar was relatively empty, the bouncer made us wait in a line outside as though we were at a club. Once inside, one of my friends noticed that everyone who came in after us also complained about the bouncer; she decided to report him to the manager when she saw him threaten to make 1 man leave because he thought the man was there by himself.
At some point in the evening, I became aware of a commotion by the door. I looked over and saw this same friend who reported the bouncer being screamed at by him (he is 6'4'' and at least 290lbs; she is 5'2'') and blocked from coming back into the bar. The next thing I saw was him grabbing her and shoving her into the street. At this point the manager came running over and screamed at anyone in our group who was standing nearby. He yelled at me "You need to get the f*** out of my bar!" I calmly told him my husband was settling his tab and then we would leave. I also explained to him that a lot of people had complained about the bouncer, at which point both he and the bouncer started screaming at me.
All of this was witnessed by the 13 people in our group (the population of the bar dropped significantly once we left) as well as the 10 people remaining in the bar, including our friend who is a lawyer who tried to explain to the bouncer as he was grabbing and shoving that this was assault, to which he answered, "You're not allowed back in either!"
To be completely fair, apparently my friend called the bouncer a rude name and told him that she reported him to the manager, which is what caused the commotion. I wish she hadn't done that, but the bouncer completely overreacted and did so in a way that is both inappropriate and illegal.
The manager also treated a crowd that made up the majority of his customers that night very poorly. I was not using profanity when I told him that a lot of people complained about the bouncer, but he reacted to me as though I were a 20 year old frat kid. My husband tipped the bartender because he was courteous and professional all evening, but he also told the manager on the way out that it is not a very smart financial decision to lose 13 customers in 1 evening.
I am not sure if they plan to keep this bouncer or not. He gave an awful big club vibe to what is actually a nice neighborhood pub. I would not recommend this bar at night because that's when they have the bouncer. He is the only reason I am giving this place 1 star.
Great out-of-the way bar – What a find! If you want to get away from the B&T crowd, and leave the big-chested-some-thing-to-prove-business-casual crowd back on Third Avenue where they belong, this is the place. It's an out-of-the way Irish bar where people come because they like it. No foot traffic. No tourists. Just a bunch of friendly folks who look like they've grown up with each other. They have their own beer (probably contract made) and Smithwick's on tap. They've got the usual bar food, with the Buffalo wings less greasy than in most places. It's a great unpretentious pub... the kind of place you don't want to write about because you're afraid other people might find it and spoil it! --Drink Club is a roving group of NYC drinkers
The Landmark Tavern is a hidden gem! – I've found myself entertaining business clients here an awful lot lately. It's just out of the way enough to have a quiet, thoughtful meal and meaningful conversation without being overrun by the 'pre-theater' crowd. The bar is fantastic! It has to be seen to be appreciated. It's the best place to sip a single-malt scotch in the entire city!!
Dinner service has been 'attentive', 'friendly' and 'professional' and the kitchen has been overly accommodating, even with the riff-raff I've been bringing in. I've tasted most of the menu at this point and have always been satisfied. The portions are huge, everything tastes like a fantastic home-cooked meal!
My favorites are the succulent steak with a killer bordelaise sauce, the tender pork and the overwhelming chicken breast. The appetizers are also excellent from the salads to the scotch eggs to the scallops.
They also have a Tavern menu with fantastic fish n chips, shepherd's pie, and burgers. If you're looking for a huge bar to hang with your work crowd and nosh on finger foods, look no further!
Horrible Food and Service – Landmark is very much that because the food is horrible. The steak was fatty and pork chops were bland. The bread was stale and the service was not too far off from the food. The food took 45 minutes. When the server was asked as to what happened to the food, her comment was "Oh Yeah" I forgot, she then laughed. What a ditz. Wouldn't go back.
Beautiful old pub with good food and very friendly, attentive service – This is a beautiful bar with incredibly friendly service. The food is thoughtfully conceived and well-prepared. It's quiet, romantic, and intimate. I actually prefer this to nearby Druid's, as it's more comfortable and less crowded. Definitely worth checking out despite its far-out location. This part of town is exploding, so it will, no doubt, be in the thick of things soon.
Great Tavern! – I have been there for lunch and dinner. The food is incredible and the atmosphere is great. The old wooden bar is incredible. It has a high class tavern feel. The Landmark burger is great, don't let the eggplant jam scare you. It's delicious. My girlfriend and I enjoyed a romantic dinner there. After dinner we walked over to Broadway for a show. Perfect night at the perfect place.
Amazingly Yummy & Wonderful Experience – Landmark Tavern's westside Restaurnt/Pub is delightfully delicious. My boyfriend & I explored it because it was built over a hundred years ago. The decor was wonderful, the antique bar amazing, the food scrumptous, the service respectful and the woodwork throughout was handsomely lush.
We ordered the Fettuccine Irene and Sirloin Steak, over the backdrop of Harp beers. All were mouthwatering wonderful.
And, we discovered that Monday nights host live Irish Bands. We live several miles away. But we will definitely return in the near future for another fab night of entertainment in such a warm and cozy place.
Thank you, Landmark Tavern! Ky & Rob
