Diner Reviews
  • "Looks like an average diner, food is not great, portions are tiny, unjustifiably overpriced. Service charge of 18% already included into the bill, though we had party of four. Will not come back"

  • "Restaurant week enables us to try an expensive restaurant for a modest price and if we like it to return again and again. I was a bit surprised when the hostess called to confirm the reservation and asked if we would be ordering from the Restaurant Week menu. We came to Armani and were delighted with the room and the views of Fifth Avenue. We had the best table, on the corner of Fifth and 56th St. Then our server came over. She was clearly annoyed that we do not drink alcohol, and when we ordered from the Restaurant Week menu I felt like Oliver Twist! The food was beautifully presented and as delicious as it looked, but the glacial attitude cast a pall over the whole dinner. I don't think we will return."

  • "Don't waste your time. If you want a drink at the bar, sure, otherwise the food is really mediocre. We went for restaurant week and I wasn't offered a coffee course and had to ask for it. The waiter said, "it's not included", well, I didn't expect that it would be BUT not to even be asked? The risotto was over salted and bland and the fish was overly cooked and equally as bland. The gelati had been pre-scooped and obviously held in the freezer (no doubt as a way to save time in the kitchen) but unattractive. Call this a bistro maybe, but it is not a restaurant and certainly does not do justice to the Armani brand."

  • "The food was mediocre, but the atmosphere was quite nice. Nice interior and good service. But not sure if I would go back for that price."

  • "Went there for restaurant week, ordered the Cucumber soup and risotto apps, wild striped bass and chuck steak for main. The soup was ok, had a few slivers of grape tomatoes, was lacking a third texture element. The risotto was undercooked just garnished with micro greens nothing memorable. The bass was nicely cooked, the arugula salad on the plate was overly salted. I took one bite and thought I ate a spoonful of salt I had to spit it out. The steak had a nice presentation medium rare with a nice sauce,color and flavor, but meat was tough. Dessert was tiramisu & ice cream, which the server failed to mention the three different flavors of ice cream and walked away. Service and food might be different if we were to pay full menu price I hope."

  • "You know how some restaurants put their best foot forward during Restaurant Week to lure back people who are truly impressed, who WILL pay full price? This isn't one of them. You'll be painfully aware -- from the botched risotto to the burnt coffee -- that you're paying $38 for a $38 experience. Drinks at the bar were the highlight, and the only thing I'd return for."

  • "My new favorite NY restaurant! The food and the service, were both excellent."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We came here for the Restaurant Week menu and while the food was pretty good, the portions were tiny! Smallest portions I've ever seen at an RW week. My entree was literally just a few tiny pieces of steak. Nothing else really. I liked the food, but I'm just glad I didn't pay too much money for so little food. Our waiter was wonderful though so we didn't leave unhappy."

  • "beautiful decor, lovely restaurant but i would improve the food....not anything like armani in milan as to quality of food. But love that is was piedmonte oriented. one of the prettiest restaurants in new york...."

  • "Had a great time and got seated at time of reservation. Staff kept coming back to check and refill on water. Great job!"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "The salads were definitely a high point. I had the misticanza estiva and my husband had the spinach salad. We had an amuse bouche of gazpacho in the beginning and one of lemon tarte at the end which were both good. The wine was reasonably priced. The entrees were ok but nothing special (spaghettini and branzino). It's a classy setting and we will most probably go again"

  • "We have never been disappointed at Armani. Just to grab a delicious bite, entertain friends, or family special occasions. The level of service is impeccable and food best outside of Italy! Thank you!"

  • "Wonderfully prepared food and presentation. Quality, taste, variety among the best of any 3 star restaurant"

  • "Ever since we lost our Armani Café in Boston about 8 years ago we have been coming down to NYC on our annual pilgrimages to Armani Ristorante. The restaurant is attached to the store and a fantastic oasis of sophistication, top notch Northern Italian food and ambiance. Staff very courteous, portions small (which is a good thing) and nicely presented. Zafferano Risotto is creamy and to die for. This place is not for everyone, but those who know, love it with a passion including us."

  • "IF you are looking for a DELICIOUS lunch while seeing Central Park and the people along 5th AVE., you have come to the right place! "

  • "The service was extremely slow. I went in for a quick lunch, but it took us 2 hours to finish because the servers took a long time to bring out the individual courses."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "I have been to Armani Ristorante several times in the past. Last week my wife and I wanted to try it again. We were seated next to a table with 18 elderly men and women. Probably celebrating, but behaving like children in a zoo. Shouting, laughing and screaming. It was impossible to have a normal conversation at our table. We could observe that many guests reacted the same way. The evening was spoiled. Waste of time and money. I will definitely never go back."

  • "I've been a handful of times, and each time I'm glad I came. I needed a spot for a business meeting with two potential clients and it was perfect. Not only did they make an exceptional Vesper martini, my dish of prosciutto, mozzarella and balled melon was out of this world! Can't wait to visit again."

  • "The vegetable and spinach salads was great, the langoustine pasta was fair. The pasta was fresh however the sauce was limp and tasteless. Overall very underwhelming. The server was professional and pleasant however it took a very long time for the entree to come out. We felt dismissed and forgotten about. However, they were very gracious when we expressed our disappointment. They took the main courses off of the bill and were very apologetic. I would go back and would recommend to a friend--with caveats."

  • "3 of us came here for dinner, ordered the following: Apps: Crudita di Mare - my favorite from all of the apps we ordered, the langoustine was perfect, wish i could order just the langoustine Risotto Milanese - BLAND, nothing special, shouldn't have ordered this Risotto Nero - i've had way better and less expensive. Should not have ordered as well. Ravioli - if it didn't have the quail egg inside, this would have been just a subpar dish Scallops - no complaints, it was good (although..i am biased, i always love scallops, as long as they're not over cooked) Main: Lamb -perfectly cooked, no complaints as well Branzino -i've had better Tartara di Manzo - this i liked, loved the combination w/ the artichoke salad and parmigiano Not coming back"
