    We had been to the Columbus Circle branch of A Voce a number of times. This was our first visit to the original A Voce on Madison Square Park. Everything was just great. Warm reception, professional and gracious service, well prepared cocktails, impressive wine list. The food was expertly prepared and beautifully presented. Of special note was the house-made fettuccine. Served with white truffles grated over the pasta at table side. Not just the pasta, but everything was memorable. We'll be back.

    I was surprised it was empty at lunch. The crowd, which filled a fraction of the room, was 1/2 business people, 1/2 housewives. The food was exceptional and the service perfect, but it felt like an either neglected spot, or one that was more dinner oriented.

    Chose A Voce to celebrate a work success and went solo. Was greeted by name, shown to a wonderful table, and received attentive service throughout the evening - not always the norm for a woman dining alone. Great selection of half-bottles of wine; perfect portion size...and the food! A gorgeous salad of seasonal ingredients, luxurious starter of pasta with butter and in-season white truffles shaved tableside; and a sea bass that was as beautiful as it was delicious. Still had room for a Bombolini dessert. A luxurious and modern setting. I was treated like a queen throughout and including tip spent about $200. A new favorite for visits to NYC.

    I have been several times to the restaurant's Columbus Circle branch and so was interested in how the Lower Manhattan version fared. It was excellent -- food, service, ambiance, decor, etc. As the host for the event, I was very flattered as the guests told me how perfect the setting was for a very good conversation.

  • Restaurant week at A Voce
    sigmund80
    Dined on 8/15/2014
    For Restaurant Week a three-course lunch menu at $25 was creative, beautifully served, and a thorough delight. For $25 it was a virtual steal. The regular menu was broad and significantly higher in price, with the (extra) charge for coffee at $5 and green tea at $6. Perhaps restaurants in this "famous name" class are taking advantage of the fact that NYC has become a magnet for wealthy tourists from all over and local financial moguls, who are willing and able to pay these very high prices.

    The restaurant week menu was a good mix from lunch and dinner menu items. The food and service was well paced and staff adapted to our needs for more or less time. Beautiful environment and calm ambiance. A definite place for future business or other more formal lunches or meals by Madison Square.

    The overall experience was very pleasant. The food was very good and each course was very good, presentation lovely. The service was excellent and very accommodating. Our original reservation was for three adults and a toddler. The toddler and his escort were held up by nap time but when they did arrive about 35 minutes later the staff could not be more accommodating. The restaurant was busy but they certainly did not rush our party. I do recommend Voce Madison for food, atmosphere and its warm, friendly and accommodating service.

    This was a perfect lunch, service, and ambiance. EVERYTHING was perfect. The service was impeccable and extremely friendly. The food was delicious and plentiful. We did not leave starving or hungry. The place is lovely. However, because the door to the outdoor dining was open, it was a bit chilly for me. The manager was constantly on the roam checking with clients as to food worthiness and if he could do anything to help. He visited our table 3 times but we had not a single complaint. We enjoyed it immensely and plan to return.

    Though we were there for a reatuarant week lunch. The host, manager and sommelier came up to Us and treated us like VIPs. The waiter George accommodated all my food needs and exclusions. The only downside was the awful scaffolding obscuring the light, and making the outdoor diners, well.... Eat under construction.

    First time RW attempt. Had skate, fluke, and ricotta mousse. Overall, tastes were flat and too mild. Especially, fluke was too oily. Cannot understand why Michelin guide gave a star to this restaurant. Service was relatively slow. No tablecloth. Tables and chairs are too casual and outdated than expected.

    Simply, very good food, well executed, though the dessert (for restaurant week: a riccotta dish) didn't live up to the appitizer and entree round. Which, for many places is the high point. (This is more good than bad. A dessert shouldn't outshine the main course.) Still, my wife and I want to go back to sample what read like great menu. [We sat outside for lunch, which as a bit noisy, what with the trucks and busses, but a georgous July day.)

    Went during restaurant week. Two of the three of us had the RW menu, which was truly just a subset of the regular menu. All had good size portions. I highly recommend the lemon ricotta ravioli: beautiful colors and flavors. Excellent service. They provide a little treat for dessert, a homemade chocolate marshmallow. Yum.

    After reading many great reviews I decided to bring my boyfriend here for what was suppose to be a romantic birthday dinner. From the start when we walked up to the restaurant there was scaffolding covering the outdoor seating. The weather was so perfect would have been nice to eat outside. In addition, it's not across from the park as noted but a quarter off Madison Avenue. The ambiance was pretty casual and not upscale as I expected. In addition, the wait staff took a while to ask us what we wanted to order for dinner. We ordered the fired ravioli and prosciutto which was good not great, lamb main course was okay, however, the donuts with caramel sauce were excellent. The wait staff were very friendly and accommodating.

    Haven't been to A VOCE for more than 2 years..after my last two visits offered food "barely passable". When I heard that a new chef had recently taken over the kitchen and was getting great reviews, I decided to give it another try. WOW! Everything my husband and I ordered was awesome! The creamy-dreamy Uovo, the yummy dried-cherry and pecan studded salad, the simple "Jersey tomato" pasta, the delightful oven roasted fluke, the dessert (mammamia!)....what an array and ALL absolutely delicious! You go Ben!
