    Always glad to go back over and over. Terrific service and glad to see some new adds to the menus. 4 or seven course offering should be tried at least once - with wine pairings of course!

    They obliged with a quiet table, in spite of the fact that the area was not open, and the food was delicious. When we asked why our order was taking longer than expected, (about 15 minutes) they refilled our wine glasses. Good value for what you pay. Will return.

    Went to dinner with last minute reservation. The restaurant is very large but well laid out so that the sound quality is good. My partner and I each had one glass of wine, shared an appetizer, each had the lobster and each had dessert and coffee. The bill was over $200. Our main dish, lobster in brown butter, looked positively tiny; perhaps it was the very large plate it was served on? The food was good, the ambiance was nice, the service was good. So, try it! But expect to pay at least $200 for dinner for 2, a lot more if you have more than one drink and don't share an appetizer.

    I have come to Ai Fiori regularly for the past year. I love the ambience and the service. The food has consistently been exceptional. This lady visit, I have to say the food was not what I have come to expect from my previous dining experiences. This will in no way discourage me from reserving my next dinner here. Everyone has an off night and it took a year for a slightly off night to occur. I will definitely return very soon.

    Our first visit to Ai Fiori will NOT be our last! Here's a rave review on all fronts: food was outrageously delicious in all respects (presentation, preparation, creativity, taste!), service matched the food (gracious, timely, knowledgeable), great wine list and a solid sommelier, atmosphere was just what we wanted (quiet, comfortable, elegant but not stuffy). Highly recommend Ai Fiori and particularly suggest trying the: Torchon (foie gras), Agnolotti (veal), and Ippoglosso (halibut). Ai Fiori is expensive but a great value. Far and away the best meal we had during our 5-days visiting a variety restaurants around the city.

    I ate the most perfect piece of halibut ever....ever. I took advantage of the 4 course prix fixe, starting with Vitello Tonnato, crispy veal sweetbreads. The meat was soft and delicate and cooked to just the right consistency. How could I not follow that with black pasta with tiny bits of shellfish. I hated to have my plate cleared. Then arrived the perfect piece of halibut which was moist and flakey, yet substantial in the mouth. Dessert was a lovely "peach melba". Service was impeccable and welcoming without being stuffy. Highly recommend and will return.

    The ambience and service was excellent. The food was poor to average. The snapper appetizer was bland, the tortellini pasta dish: the pasta was tough, filling and sauce were average. The steak was salty. We took guests there because of the location and the Michelin star, but, were embarrassed. With all of the choices in New York, we won't return.

    The whole experience at Ai Fiori was amazing. We wanted to do the chef tasting menu but didn't have enough time so did the price fix 4 course meal based entirely on the waiter's recommendations. My wife and I each had 4 different stellar courses to share. The food was out of this world, the wait staff knowledgeable, friendly and attentive, and the drinks top notch. It does not make for a cheap night out, but I hope to go back soon and would highly recommend trying it out!

    I had the prix fixe. The food was good, but nothing special. That goes for the amuse bouche (particularly boring), a salad and the bronzini main course. Pasta course was very good. Service was excellent. My wife loved her appetizer which involved roe on top of ??. Otherwise nothing outstanding among her choices. For such an expensive, highly rated place, I expected better.

    We decided to dine at this restaurant as we were staying at the attached hotel, Langham Place. However, we would not recommend this restaurant to any of our friends. Although happy to pay premiums for great service and food we were left reeling at the food quality and disingenuous service. New York has its fair share of great eats. Sometimes the hype does not live up to expectation and in the case of Ai Fiori this is exactly the case. Little Italy in New York is a much better bet for great Italian dining. Sorry Ai Fiori you just dont have what it takes to be part of a five star hotel...

    Our entire experience at Ai Fiori was above and beyond expectations. We had dinner here while in NYC celebrating our daughter's Sweet 16. I mentioned when booking that it was our daughter's birthday, and the restaurant outdid themselves in making her feel extra special - they chatted and wished her happy birthday, offered to make special virgin cocktails for her (parents enjoyed the wonderful wine list!), brought her complementary specially-prepared agnolotti appetizer and an extra dessert. Every food item that we had was absolutely delicious and beautifully plated. Service was top-notch in every respect. A tad pricey, but worth it; we will definitely return here on a future NYC trip. I've also recommended to friends already.
