Günter Seeger NY
You're invited to join us for dinner in either our Main Dining Room or at the Chef's Table. Weekdays there is the option of either a $115 4 course menu or the $178 8 course menu. On Friday and Saturday we serve the 8 course Menu only.
Reservations can be made 30 days in advance online and 60 days in advance by phone. We look forward to welcoming you.
It was a pleasure to have a delicious meal, we chose the 4 course with wine pairing, without too much fuss of servers interrupting, allowing for wonderful conversation with my son.
We went on a Saturday and there is only one selection: the 10 course tasting menu (plus additional courses if you so desire). No problem, that's what we wanted. And we were expecting an excellent wine pairing. Alas, though ambiance, food, and service certainly matched our expectations, I never had so many subpar wine matches on a tasting menu. The four German wines were all disappointing, quite a surprise given that the chef grew up in Germany and having had superb German wines on a recent trip to Heidelberg. On the plus side, a Sicilian red was a great accompaniment to what was the "main course" (squab aka pigeon). Another wonderful surprise on the food side was the Baked Kohlrabi, of which I only had bad memories from childhood. No much point to review specific items in detail, the menu changes daily, there are no house specials that you can count on having. But this is part of the fun. So, if wine matching is not that important to you, it is a great place for a celebratory dinner. By the way, there is no information about the wines on the match nor the wine list in general on the restaurant's web site. Maybe we should have followed the suggestion of our server: just pick a good bottle of wine.
Outstanding from the time we walked in.
Amazing place to have a great dining experience. They really show you the love and make sure that you know the layout of the meal and what to expect
Excellent! Exceeded my expectation. Lovely restaurant with excellent, attentive & competent staff. Very inventive cuisine using seasonal ingredients alongside an interesting wine list, mostly German that pairs well with the cuisine.
Phenomenal Birthday celebration.
Friendly and attentive staff. Elegant surroundings. Really great wine list. Impeccable service. The ambience was extraordinarily tasteful and conducive for great dinner conversations. Very comfortable overall.
Very happy with deliciously unique dishes & excellent service.
The food was fabulous and the service attentive. However, the pace was over 4 hours for 11 courses which was too slow.
Wonderful food. A bit formal, stiff.
The food and service were fantastic! I was primarily satisfied with the service, something you would expect at a Michelin star restaurant. We had a 10-course dinner with wine pairing and we enjoyed all of it. Primarily the fish dish with radish tea was very, very tasty. Thanks guys for a awesome night.
The two main courses were excellent - but the rest was fairly plane and the essence of the flavors did not fully come out. The ambience and interior design is amazing - the staff is friendly and eager but at times a bit uncoordinated.
Wonderful restaurant for anniversary!
Wonderful dining experience! Just as good as, if not exceeds any other high end dining room in NYC.
A tad pretentious but professional staff and service served outstanding food.
Really enjoyed our evening. The wine pairing was a good choice. Lovely evening.
One of the dining experiences I’ve had in years from the food to the service and the setting !!!!
Ein perfektes Erlebnis! Einfach super!! Nur zu empfehlen!
My favorite !!
The perfect spot for a romantic dinner!
I visit NYC 2-3 times every year; and I really look forward to dining out, especially at the City’s many fine dining spots. So I was so excited to rediscover Günter Seeger, having frequented his amazing restaurant in Atlanta in the 90s.
This week we visited Bouley at Home, Ayers, Marea, EMP and finally Günter Seeger. Seeger’s was easily the favorite spot on this trip for both me and my wife. His food is so delicate, the flavor profile so clean and intense, everything is as fresh as can be. It’s truly a rare high end restaurant these days that are so market driven, changing the menu almost everyday to reflect the best of what is available on that day!
The other highlight is the focus on the German wines. We have had some of the most magnificent food friendly wines I had anywhere on my visits here to Seegers.
We love it!
Had a lovely time but there were two things that diminished the experience: 1) our table was next to a very large - and very pungent - floral arrangement of lilies. The smell was really overwhelming! 2) there were two young children running around and being obnoxious. I get kids have to eat and it’s not the restaurant’s fault, but one would think an 8pm reservation on a Saturday would preclude children. Especially at a restaurant like Gunter Seeger. But maybe it’s more the fault of the parents, than the restaurant.
Impeccable service and efficient service, austere decor but with very good taste. Absolute respect for the original taste of every dish, enhancing the taste and not mixing it with sauces or ingredients that literally kill the flavor of the dish. Highly recommended.
Amazing! Get the 10 courses
Service, food, cocktails, atmosphere was all impeccable. I was amazed at servers attention to detail. I thoroughly enjoyed the separation of flavors in every dish.
Food was incredible!!
Everything was spot on for a weeknight 10 course tasting at Günter Seeger. The chef himself was present in the open kitchen and dining room, the staff was friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable, and the food was truly exceptional. No pretension or stuffiness whatsoever.
Altogether perfect from the brilliant food, the exquisite service and the amazing wine list. All in all a wonderful evening. One of us has food allergies and was perfectly accommodated.
I was very much looking. Forward to dine here however wasn’t very impressed with the beef dish and the apple tart. The scallops wrapped in grape leave was very salty as well. The overall produce freshness wasn’t what I expected.
Great food and perfect service
Excellent all around! The food was creative and the wines amazing. The service was top class.
AmAzing food! It made me so happy being there. The smell of flowers when you walk in is toxic. The open kitchen concept allows you to see the chef cooking. Def recommend it! I’ve been to most Michelin star restaurants in Nyc and this restaurant was so different and refreshing!
Always one of the best places in NY. Stellar experience
Amazing display of culinary genius coupled with great service and a beautiful setting.
Extraordinary service meets fantastic ingredients with imaginative dishes.
We scheduled Gunter Seeger for our wedding anniversary on a Saturday evening. The only option on that night is the 10 course tasting menu (4 course menu is an alternative on weeknights). The staff greeted us warmly and was very accommodating but could not honor our request for face-to-face seating; all the tables for two are set at a perpendicular; I have a hearing deficit which makes this awkward. But the room is fairly quiet so it worked, even though sub-optimal. The website and the telephone confirmation call stress that jackets are required for men; I wore one but for some reason half the men in the dining room were permitted to dine without them. We ordered the wine pairing, which is $125 per person. This was a mistake. The wines (all German) were heavily weighted towards whites (something like 6 out of 8), several were mediocre and none were outstanding. We would have done better ordering a bottle of German white and a non-German red of our choice, and gotten better quality for close to the same price. There were several outstanding dishes among the 10 offered that evening (the soup was very special, there was a terrific raw fish, and the filled egg was inventive), a couple of decent ones (the abalone and the quail dishes were enjoyable to me but weren't to my wife's taste), and the rest were forgettable (the cooked beet and the shrimp were both pedestrian, the cheese course was good but you can do as well at Murray's, and the desserts, which aren't what we want anyway, were not unusual in any way). The service at Gunter Seeger is impeccable and the ambience very comfortable, but at $365/pp, tax and tip included, this is a very poor value when the meal doesn't really blow your mind. I think there are better choices in terms of cuisine and cost if you are celebrating a special night. We don't expect to return.
Very high scale restaurant with good service, but no gluten free breads or cakes. You would think with this level of cuisine that they would cater to GF people. Luxurious, slow presentation of delicacies, but hard to get veggies and other basics of healthy food. European (German) style with stuffy old world values. Let's modernize folks with vegetables and GF options.
Wonderful! Details were everywhere and staff was exceptional!
Phenomenal experience. The food was exquisite, the ambiance was lovely, and the service was impeccable. We opted for the wine pairings, and were in the very excellent and capable hands of Rashi, who guided us through the menu and pairings. As reviewed many times over, the menu and restaurant can be characterized as simple elegance. Everything was wonderfully prepared and presented. Both the food ingredients and design elements spoke for themselves.
It was the longest meal I've ever had (they were kind enough to serve at our pace), but the hours wiled away easily in the beautiful setting. The meal was pricey, for sure, but the service and quality warranted it. I was caught off guard that the champagne we were offered as we sat down was $35/glass, and that the tea we were served at the end of the meal was $10/each; but the overall experience was wonderful enough to warrant the overall cost. Thanks, Chef Seeger, Rashi and everyone, for such a memorable evening!
