    I've dined here previously, for both business and personal events. This visit was for a group of business colleagues that are also friends. The tasting menu provided a brilliant opportunity to sample every dish as if Armani had made them and brought to you personally. The entire staff is eager to ensure that your dining experience is exceptional. Specifically, the maître d'/hostess were very accommodating in making requested table adjustments as a result of the late arrivals of some of my friends.

    Lovely dinning option inside the Armani store - at the time we dined it was not crowded at all which I loved! Will certainly come again! Everything was the freshest ingredients you can get - only disappointment was my risotto was under cooked and a bit bland (the saffron risotto), everything else was great!

    I have been to Armani several times--including one less than acceptable food experience. This time, however, the food was off the charts fantastic. The servers were warm, charming and efficient. The scallop appetizer may have been the best I have ever had. I would not hesitate to go back to Armani and to recommend the restaurant to friends and colleagues.

    The Armani Ristorante's offerings for Restaurant Week were of very high quality and, in addition, we appreciated the spaciousness, comfort and elegant design of the restaurant The one serious negative was the design of the restroom. The rich marble counter tops did nothing to dispel the feeling of claustrophobia when the giant floor-to-ceiling door to the stall clanged shut and there seemed to be a serious lack of ventilation.

    What a fabulous restaurant! The food and the service are superb, and the view 3 floors above 5th Ave. near the park is wonderful. The word for this restaurant is elegant. Without restaurant week specials, it can be a bit pricey, but I've already made plans to return with out-of-town friends who would so much enjoy the experience. Kudos to the chef. The risotto is fabulous. And what a great place to eat during Christmas week overlooking the throngs and all the excitement of Christmas on 5th Ave.

    Our visit to NYC coincided with NTC restaurant week so we took the opportunity to dine at Armani Restaurant on 5th Ave. The restaurant is located on the 3rd floor of the shop and has a stunning black and white decor, a long bar and black marble floor. The special menu had 3 choices for starter, mains and dessert. I went for the duck risotto starter that was delicious. I selected the Dorade for the main- not my favourite fish but tasty when done in a broth with tomatoes and olives. The Taramisu was probably the best I've ever had and came with an ice cream topping. The service was friendly and well paced. The wines are a bit pricey but the dinner at the special £38.00 price was good value for noney.

    Our server was very pleasant. The bread was delicious - especially the crispy flat bead and olive rolls. Three of us ordered the the artichoke salad which was overly salted- inedible. Thank goodness for the bread. The rest of us ordered the risotto which was tasty and also salty. The steamed dorade was lukewarm,pale and not flavorful. The sirloin was dry and tough. Everyone enjoyed the tiramisu. Overall disappointing.

    I took my husband out for his birthday hoping for an upscale New York dining experience. My husband was totally not impressed with the decor saying it was very 1980s, I liked the retro black and white look. Our server came to greet us and then came back to take our order. That was basically the last time we saw him until we flagged him down for a drink at the end of dinner. My husband's glass was empty since the appetizer!! No server came back to ask how the meal was or if we needed anything. Luckily the prosciutto wrapped pork loin dinner we both had was good (but extremely small portions).

    Restaurant week and I had to come to finally try this place out. Ambiance is beyond chic, the booths were super comfy, enough to have me plot sneaking them out without anyone looking LOL Service was initially formal and rigid and towards the end were super nice Food: Amuse bouche was great, the risotto was a bit too under cooked but flavorful, the Pork was amazing so was the gelato. Stayed there a while and we never felt hurried. I would totally go again.

    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.

    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.

    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.
