    This was my second time dining at Armani and it was again a wonderful experience. Took 2 friends who hadn't been before. The food was truly wonderful! My duck was sensational. Service was excellent and ambiance lovely. It is expensive but I couldn't find a fault at all so if on a budget then it is a perfect choice for a special occasion. If you are a foodie then you have to experience it.

    WOW! Everything was so fantastic! The appetizers (tuna tartare, grilled octopus, burrata) -- SO GOOD! Truffle Risotto and Filet - both phenomenal! Great wine, delicious desserts, the best service ever! Anthony -- be sure to ask for ANTHONY! He was so attentive and anticipated every need - such a wonderful complement to a perfect evening! Will definitely return again and again - my new favorite hot spot!!!

    First visit for an early dinner and it was sensational. Beautiful decor, elegant, good food, excellent service and lovely wine. Pasta very good, fish was excellent! I was there early so I don't know what it is like at evening after 7:30. Service was impeccable and they were sincerely interested in any comments on their food. A real find and I look forward to going back!

    I'm a regular at The Armani Ristorante, and this was the first time I found a server who was not only rude, but extremely arrogant. We were a group of 5 girls, and 2 of them were late/lost their way. He refused to take our order and said we needed to wait for the other 2. Because of that, I didn't get to eat my entree and had to leave since I needed to get to some place on time!

The food was fabulous, the service was impeccable and the "Happy Anniversary" desert touch made the evening SPECIAL for the both os us - looking forward to bringing a larger group of friends there to enjyo a great evening !!!!

    This is an excellent Italian restaurant on isolated floor of the Armani store. Full of attractive people and wait staff as one would expect for Armani. Yes, it's expensive, but you don't go to Armani expecting bargain basement. It's like dining in Italy and the accents of the waiters and the various languages off the clientele will make the Euros and want to be Euros feel right at home.

    I have always had dinner at Armani, but this time took a friend for her first time for her birthday.There were two tables of six young woman who laughed and screamed and were just obnoxious, faces turning red from their hilarity.Also a woman at another table with two suited men was so loud that heads were turning. I could not stop apologizing to my friend for the ruinous lunch scene. NEVER AGAIN.

    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.

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.
