confused about gramercy

i am coming to nyc in december and read nice things about this restaurant in zagats saying its the top place there .
is this a stuffy place or a trendy cool place and is it worth the good write ups given there ?

  1. That Zagat listing at the front of the book refers to popularity, and it's true that Gramercy Tavern is very popular. There are two sides to the restaurant -- the Tavern Room in the front where reservations are not accepted, and the dining room at the rear where you can reserve. Each has its own menu. You can view them on the website.

    G.T. is definitely not stuffy, but it's not a cool, trendy place either. It is an attractive, warm, inviting place to have an excellent meal.
