  • Jen MWhile many other great burgers have been born in this city (Shake Shack, Burger Joint, etc.), this luxe is the one that best encapsulates the things New York loves—quality, decadence, and money.

    55555 by Jen M

  • Basheer B.Bone Marrow was incredible - the steak for two is one of the best steaks I've ever had!

    55555 by Basheer B.

  • Atil JI got the burger - nothing special.

    22222 by Atil J

    55555 by Nick T.

  • Trae F.One of my favorite dining experiences in the city. Great service and the Black Label burger is worth every penny. These guys know how to run a restaurant!

    55555 by Trae F.

    55555 by Kathryn I.

  • Prasid KGreat but expensive burger and good drinks

    55555 by Prasid K

    55555 by Pablo S

  • Emily SI order my burger rare. Those who are like me, trust me when I say you want the black label burger cooked medium rare, at least.

    33333 by Emily S

  • Khalid N.Go with a friend and split a black label burger as an appetizer and a bone-in strip for the main course. Finish it all off with a chocolate soufflé with vanilla ice cream.

    55555 by Khalid N.

  • Ruby A.That burger 🍔.... be careful cause medium rare is way more on the rare / raw side, but it is delicious nonetheless.

    55555 by Ruby A.

  • Staff PicksMinetta Tavern was one of the more wished for places throughout 2015’s I Want Somewhere holiday campaign. Where’s your somewhere? Enter to win a bucket list experience.

    33333 by Staff Picks

  • Victor S.Minetta Tavern is a classic and the Black Label Burger is one of the best burgers in New York.

    55555 by Victor S.

  • Matthew H.Definitely the Black Label burger

    55555 by Matthew H.

  • Josue CQuite possibly the best meat in the city, from their Burger to their Bone-in Strip. Pricey, but worth it!

    55555 by Josue C

  • Lydia BBoth burgers were amazing.

    55555 by Lydia B

  • Paul CunninghamHad both the Minetta and the Black Label burgers. Save yourself some money and get the cheaper one; I thought it was just as good.

    33333 by Paul Cunningham

  • Alexandra RO Black Label Burger é imperdível, um dia melhores burgers que já provei. Não é exatamente barato, mas vale muito a pena.

    55555 by Alexandra R

    33333 by G R

  • Mallory M.Get the burger medium rare. You will not regret it.

    55555 by Mallory M.

  • Natalie V.IMHO the Minetta burger is better than the black iron, but you can't go wrong with either. :)

    55555 by Natalie V.

  • Jenny KirschOverpriced and overhyped. I get the 'signature' black label burger at $30, but $6 for an iced tea put me over the edge.

    22222 by Jenny Kirsch

    55555 by Dan D

  • Michael S.Black Label Burger

    33333 by Kyle Hughes

  • Charlotte ScarfWhat a special space, cozy and intimate while absolutely buzzing. We went with the black label burgers but the marrow looked incredible.

    55555 by Charlotte Scarf

  • William N.Sit in a booth in the back, order a glass of wine and some roast beets, and imagine convening with the heads of the other families.

    33333 by William N.

  • Robert J.The burger !!!

    33333 by Robert J.

  • Eddy C.Black label burger is good but would say spotted pigs' burger is better. Bartender was VERY rude as I was waiting to get seated, told me I couldn't have a seat, I didn't want a seat, only a drink.

    22222 by Eddy C.

  • Simon LeungHome of the "black label" burger - supposed to be best in NY.

    55555 by Simon Leung

  • Athena C.Try the Terrine of smoked pork hock and foie gras - Heavenly combination (via @Foodspotting)

    55555 by Athena C.

  • Tom W.Still the best meat in NYC. Also the old man and the sea cocktail was pretty great. Last price hike make this place pretty expensive.

    55555 by Christian A

  • Amy R.Sometime a good quality cheeseburger hits the spot

    55555 by Amy R.

  • drew t.Go when seating opens at 5:30 p.m., you have a good chance of getting a table even without a reservation. The Black Label burger is good but not worth $25 or better than Shake Shack.

    33333 by drew t.

  • Tom HalleranCame for drinks, must return for dinner. This authentic New York saloon is Old School in a good way. They don't make 'em like this anymore.

    55555 by Tom Halleran

  • Dunash IAt the end of the day its anothet burger place with fancy prices. When trying their steak it was uneatable, the oxtail foi greue was terrible. If all you want is to have a good burger its a good place

    33333 by Dunash I

  • Christine L.Classic old school New York spot. Good burger/ claimed to be the best in town.

    55555 by Christine L.

  • ShahI mean, wow. The Norwegian salmon, the marrow, the beet salad, the burger; all phenomenal. Plus, beautiful classic atmosphere. Love this place.

    55555 by Shah

  • Claire J Songthe luxurious dry aged burger lives up to the hype, it's the tavern's marrow bone-crowned côte du boeuf for two. excellent lamb saddle, as well as New York strip and Roquefort-smothered filets.

    55555 by Claire J Song

  • elizabeth LThe smoked pork belly is TO DIE FOR! Service is superb and the atmosphere is lovely for a night out with friends or a romantic, candle lit evening.

  • Aly OradyThe Black Label Burger and the bone marrow. I ordered both. Used the bone marrow to top the burger. Mind blown.

    33333 by Aly Orady

  • Christopher J.Don't split the burger. Don't listen to any of the reviews. This burger is so good you will regret sharing half. If anything split the fries and enjoy a whole mouth watering burger to yourself.

    55555 by Christopher J.

  • Kaoru FujitaThe greatest steak joint in all of Manhattan. The meat, the service, and the wines are unforgettable.

    55555 by Kaoru Fujita

    55555 by Andrew P.

  • Chris L.We resisted the hype, scoffed at the wait, and fell promptly in love w/ the Black Label, and the marrow dish. Oh, to be a carnivore...

    55555 by Chris L.

  • Andrew J. L.Great burgers if you want to spend $$$

    55555 by Andrew J. L.

  • Mell P.Black label burger lives up to the hype

    33333 by Mell P.

  • MichelleBeside the obvious meaty delights, get a whiskey and the mushroom side. Great compliments to the smokey meats!

    55555 by Michelle

  • Olof CarlsonThe Black Label burger is more of a meat experience than a regular burger. The onion and the sweet bread compliments it perfectly. Great interior and location as well.

    55555 by Olof Carlson

  • Jane DongBlack label burger lives up to the hype. Not a fan of sitting super close to the table next to you though - you can hear every word that they say...

    33333 by Jane Dong

  • Lori L.Reservations are necessary at McNally's famed restaurant, but the $26 Black Label Burger is more than just a touch overpriced.

    33333 by Lori L.

  • Michael S.The salmon gravlax is a revelation. Criminally under ordered

    55555 by Michael S.

  • amNewYorkThe chefs at Minetta Tavern tested many different burger blends before deciding on the Black Label blend from Pat LaFrieda and recommend NOT adding cheese.

    55555 by amNewYork

  • refinery29The crowd at this Keith McNally might be slightly annoying ("Tod, you just got a fingerprint on my silver tie-clip!"), but the exquisitely-beefy Black Label burger is worth it.

  • Andrew H.If it's your first time, you pretty much have to get one of the burgers, full stop. If you've had the burger before, be sure to listen to the specials for the day, they're hard to beat.

    55555 by CM S.

  • ThrillistThe gold standard of funky, pungent, caramelized onion-topped, dry-aged, more-a-steak-than-a-burger burgers, it's somehow worth every one of those 26 dollars.

    55555 by Thrillist

  • Elsa S.Black label burger and chocolate souffle, service, lighting, decor: all great. Table layout: unfortunately, horrible. Waaay too many people seated too close to each other, and deafeningly loud.

  • Jennifer D.Of course, you must get the black label burger. But beware, it's rather salty. And if you usually like a medium-rare, you'll want to opt for medium here.
