A Voce Columbus
Lunch with ChristopherI invited a good friend for her birthday lunch at A Voce Columbus on Monday. At 12:30 on Monday, it was far from crowded. Service was warm and attentive. We were seated near the huge front window. The view, an eye-level encounter with Christopher Columbus atop his pedestal against an ocean of blue sky. A delicious Kir Italiano to celebrate the occasion. Wonderful trumpet mushrooms with fresh greens on a smear (just enough) of delicate sauce. Beautiful ravioli with ricotta and spring-fresh peas with toasted hazelnuts (again, just enough for the crunch and flavor). We shared an amazing and beautiful cake dessert with chunks of caramel, crowned with strips of fresh pineapple. Oh, and the bread. Oh, and the cod. I can hardly wait to return.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA Voce Columbus is a gem!

Bravo!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent lunchWent for a lunch business meeting on a colleague's recommendation, and it was brilliant. The food was spectacular but it is what I would expect of a Michelin star restaurant. Didn't have a window table but still had a great view - the whole floor does, with those enormous windows. Waiter was pleasant, extremely knowledgeable, direct and succinct. We were not rushed at all and not bothered. Our water glasses were refilled without us even noticing. Very successful meeting much in part due to the fantastic food and great overall atmosphere. Certainly an excellent recommendation!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, and even better serviceI've been a handful of times and this was by far the best service, our server was exceptional on all levels. The food was priced well, and did not disappoint. We were fortunate enough to get a table overlooking the corner of Central Park.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!Thank you for another wonderful evening! The new spring menu is delicious - order one of everything.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI had eaten once at A VoceI had eaten once at A Voce 2 years ago and found it to be a fabulous experience. Unique twist on Italian food. I was nervous that it would not live up to my memory. Happily, it did not disappoint. I will not wait 2 years again to go back! I highly recommend A Voce as a top notch eating experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is bright,The restaurant is bright, enhanced by the gorgeous view of Columbus Circle and Central Park. The menu is varied and creative, but all of the dishes we tried were fabulous. There is a huge wine list with excellent wines in all cost ranges. The prices were not inexpensive, but very reasonable for the quality of the food.
Yhis is a must for both New Yorkers and tourists.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticI went for my Birthday and the food was outstanding. We really enjoyed the al la carte style menu. We started with the beets, radishes, and the pancetta dish. The vegetable sides will last all meal. The pancetta was outstanding, I could have had two. My wife and the razor clam pasta and I had the lamb sausage pasta. The lamb sausage pasta was spicy with a tremendous flavor. The razor clam pasta was superbly fresh. I then had the sea bass dish as my main. We finished the meal with the Bombolini’s. Both were very good. I would go back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!Amazing. The food was simply incredible and the service was do thorough. Our waiter could answer all of our questions and knew the menu inside out - even the origin of the ingredients. The flavored of each dish complimented one another so perfectly. The place was a bit noisy but the maitre d was so sweet and gave us an amazing table near the window as it was a special occasion for us (next time hopefully we can get one at the window)! She even came to check on us during our meal. Our cocktails were delicious and the men loved their incredible wine selection. Again though, the food - just...wow. It was one of the most excellent dining experiences that I have had in NYC recently. Can not wait to go back!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA truly delightful diningA truly delightful dining experience.

It is the best wine we had for the price.
The flipside is that Voce is really a hotsopt and reservation is a must.
In a nutshell,it was a great experience and I am coming back!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExtensive wine list, niceExtensive wine list, nice decoration and atmosphere. Menu is small but well done, good quality. Attention to small details, nice and friendly staff.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely meal, lovely positionThe kind hostess sat us at the best table in the house (direct view over Central Park) even though there were only two of us and it was a four seater! The wine list, contrary to many reviews we had read, was full of quite reasonably priced options, so our wallets weren't left too badly scathed.
Our waitress was very attentive and knowledgable - a great service and simply fabulous food were laid on for us.
The portions were generous, and if only a little bit salty, they were still very tasty.
All round, we were very happy with the meal and left feeling absolutely stuffed!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again the food was wonderfulOnce again the food was wonderful but this time the service, while pleasant, was a bit draggy. We've always enjoyed dining there3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGood view, great service.I went for the view. Though not as grand as some other eateries in the city, it was nice...had a nice view of the globe. The waiters were really nice and the food was good. Will be back soon.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful experience. Onewonderful experience. One of the best restaurants we have visited in the US and Europe. Innovative menu, and excellent help from the wait staff as to wine choice and menu items. Easily compares to best French restaurants and unusual for an italian restaurant. Near Lincoln Center. Only complaint is that that the portions are most likely too large for most people but that is not to say I did not finish the main dish. Everything was outstanding.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious, wellThe food was delicious, well presented and the service was excellent.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best chicken IOne of the best chicken I have ever tasted.

The staff was very welcoming, and did not rush us. We had a very enjoyable lunch.1/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was exceptional.The food was exceptional. One of the best branzino I've ever eaten. The service was a little off. We arrived at 5:45pm and was shown to a cramped table. While there were many empty tables, the young hostess tried to sit us in between two other cramped tables until another server allowed us to sit in a more spacious area. We also had to ask three times for ice for our water. Otherwise, a great choice in the Time Warner Building.1/19/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat choiceThird time i have dined here and it is just a great "go to" place. Wine list (Chris knows the list) is excellent. The food is top tier. View is unreal. If you can get a reservation, you should go.1/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location and views.Great location and views. Wine list is excellent and well priced. Food is good--not something you will remember the following week.
I like this place and recommend it for business dinners.12/17/2012 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant amazes eachThis restaurant amazes each time I go there. The food is simply wonderful. I had the oven-prepared mushrooms, big slices of mushrooms, just delicious, and a pasta with chiles (and plenty of butter/oil). Scrumptious. My friends all ordered steak or the pork chop or a special fish and enjoyed them thoroughly. We ordered a wonderful bottle of moderately-priced wine with the help of the sommelier. We lingered a bit at the end, and we were not rushed out. This restaurant has tables with some lovely views of Columbus Cirle and Central Park; we were five and sat in a nice corner. We had no trouble talking together and felt comfortably snug as bugs. A lovely restaurant with terrific food!12/3/2012 12:00:00 AM
