Went there for dinner based on the
good reviews. Service was extremely slow and after waiting and waiting, they brought the wrong order. Finally got my correct dish and it was poor, at best. Don't let the crowd fool you."

Great atmosphere, incredible food,

We received a recommendation to
try this place in mid-town, and it just didn't live up to our expectations. The wine was great and the food was just on- nothing exciting. Good service."

We have lived here in Manhattan
for decades, and it is hard to find a good reasonably priced place for brunch near city center. Came across bistro milano, where the ambience looked great and there were good food reviews. It is true that it was beautiful sitting outside, but after waiting at least 20 minutes for our order, the waiter came back to say one of the entrees we ordered was not available! The other 3 of us were given our food soon thereafter, and the one who had to re-order waited quite awhile longer. All of our food was delivered cold (was supposed to be hot). I'd try it one more time, given the ambience."

We had a great dinner at Milano
Bistro, and the service was very good, too."

Food was delicious as usual though
my favorite the mezza luna pasta with veal was no longer on the menu. The waitress assisted in finding another selection, a ravioli which was quite good. The white sangria was very refreshing. Wait staff are great. Go there, you will enjoy!"

Had early dinner before
performance at the Palace Theater. Food was excellent and very good size portions. I will return. I asked if the Chef would do a veal milaanese and it was done to perfection with a very tasty salad on top."
Dined on 6/15/2014
i recommend the scallops capesanti
which was delicious. My wife enjoyed the pizza margherita. The vodka sour was also very tasty."

Bistro Milano has always been a
favorite of mine I brought a friend this time from London the service was only average we both ordered but they only brought one meal the server then asked wasn't I eating they were all surprised by the fact two people one order. They did try to correct the situation by giving me a free glass of wine not much of a treat when my friend was finished before my meal came. Will have to think before I go back."

I was disappointed with my most
recent visit to Bistro Milano. For starters, they jammed 6 of us into a table for 4. We asked for the 'round ends' to be popped up to accommodate everyone, and they obliged with one, leaving two diners very cramped. Next, the wine I ordered was 'out', so they suggested a cheaper bottle, but tried to charge me for the wine I originally ordered. Overall the service was not what I remember from previous dinners. The service was slow and sloppy yet the waitstaff was very rushed. The 'runner' asked the table if they wanted pepper. When one colleague said 'no', he left...(what about the rest of us. 2 soup starters were delivered without spoons. Food was good, but poor service was a real distraction."

Interesting menu, great food and
ambiance. Wait staff was a bit slow but very charming. Leave yourself time to enjoy the experience. We have put this on our go-to list in the city."

The best restaurant in town !! I
was served by Ben. He was the waiter who served us and recommended the best dishes. He is perfect !! And the food was delicious !!"

This was our second visit for luch
and we were very pleased. Service was attentive and the food was nicely presented and delicious. We will definitely go back."

Food is fresh,service is
good,however this restaurant is more expensive than $$$. As long as you are aware of this you will enjoy your lunch or dinner.I would return to this restaurant and the wait staff was very professional."

We chose Bistro Milano because it
was Mother's Day, I wanted to have a reservation for dinner, and I wanted it to be close to Le Parker Meridien where we were staying. I had read some reviews on either Yelp or TripAdviser (can't remember which one) and it sounded pretty good. Well, we all enjoyed our meals and appetizers. We had the crab cake appetizer, the beet salad, and the caesar salad and they were all delicious. For entrees we had the halibut special which was so delicious, the lasagna, the Branzino and my son had a delicious rich pasta dish (had a bite, but not sure what it was). The pasta was perfectly al dente. It was a beautiful evening and we enjoyed sitting outside under the large umbrellas."

Bistro Milano has a wonderful and
unusual menu and a very friendly accommodating wait staff. Many times we have wandered in at the last minute and they have always found a way to fit us in. They have a superb pappardelle alla telefono which I almost always order. Elegant but very warm and welcoming. "
Dined on 5/11/2014
We couldn't make our original
reservation, so I used Open Table and stumbled upon Bistro Milano. It's absolutely fantastic. There were 4 of us, and we sampled each other's food -- it was all absolutely delicious. I am so glad I found this place. Modern and bright, with street-side dining. Attentive staff. Wine by the glass, mezzo-litro, or bottle. Amazing food, mid-priced. Great midtown location near the Park. I would recommend to anyone who loves great Italian food."

We have been passing this
restaurant for a few years now on our way to other eateries -- not sure why. When, finally, we decided to have dinner here, I wondered why we had waited so long.....it was excellent -- food, service and ambiance. One small quibble was the mixed berry sorbet following dinner, which was pretty bland. Everything else was delicious and the service was spot on. We will definitely be back! "
Dined on 5/9/2014
This place is extremely good. It
is quiet, the service is competent, and the food is very good and consistently so. The menu has excellent variety for people on various diets and budgets and the wine list is good and reasonably priced. When the weather is warm, one can sit at a table outside without being check-to-check with people on the sidewalk."

We were able to get a table at the
last minute on a Saturday at 8:30. The staff were very friendly though we had to ask them to leave some time between courses. Salads were delicious and substantial while my veal was tender with a truffle sauce. Our waitress brought us complimentary glass of dessert wine to top of an excellent evening. "
Dined on 5/3/2014
I chose Bistro Milano because it
was close to the Hilton Hotel, where I was attending a conference. The staff was welcoming on our arrival. We sat at a table in the corner, which was quieter than the rest of the restaurant. The Caesar salad was phenomenal--the best I've had in years. My husband had the chicken Milanese which was cooked perfectly, very moist and delicious and I had the pasta and crabmeat which was very good. We were not disappointed and would highly recommend this restaurant."

Classy service, nice ambiance.
Perhaps tables are too close together to call it intimate, but tables on either side offered interesting conversation with interesting classy people."

Food is consistent and service
impeccable. Conveniently located right downstairs from office."

We've been looking for a long time
for sumptuous cuisine near City a Center which we frequent. Stumbled upon this restaurant in your list. The food is dazzling. I had a special - pan seared red snapper cut into fourths and layered like a "cake" with alternating fish and vegetables . A delicate orange sauce was drizzled over the structure. So creative! So sumptuous !"
Dined on 4/5/2014
Chose this retaurant becuase it
was close to City Center, where we had tickets that night. And rain was in the forecast. We arrived at our reserved 6:15 time to a VERY NOISY room with the entry area crowded with people apparently hoping to be seated. We found out why. When the hostess finally made her way to the check-in stand, we were informed that we could not be seated for "at least 40 minutes" because there was a convention at the adjoining hotel. This was followed by "sorry" in a tone that said she was anything but. Will never go back. Suggest all who value a restaurant honoring its reservations seek dinner elsewhere."
Dined on 4/4/2014
We wanted something near our
convention hotel and before the theater. I narrowed it down and then read the reviews. Other folks raved. They were right! this is a terrific restaurant. All aspects: food, drink, service, were authentic and wonderful. Next time we're in NYC we'll put this restaurant on our list for return."

mediocre pizza, skimpy drinks, not
a place to revisit"

Went to well known, crowded
restaurant the night before, not a very relaxing dinner. Had we hone to bistro Milano the first night, we would have been back for the second dinner. Felt calm as soon as we walked in. Service was great, food delicious, and reasonable. Who knew you could find such a restaurant in NYC?"
Dined on 3/22/2014
My friends and I very much enjoyed
the experience of dining at this restaurant. The food and the service was extremely good and the setting was perfect."
Dined on 3/10/2014
The food is the star here.
Delicious filetto di manzo. osso buco, and orchietti. We particularly liked the carpaccio. Atmosphere was subdued, which is sometimes a very welcome thing. Great if you are going to City Center."

Mezze Luna con vitello -
stupendo! Minnestrone soup - divine."
Dined on 3/5/2014
My husband and I wanted a light
pre-theater meal. The menu looked great, but the food didn't live up to its description. Mushrooms and beets tasted canned rather then fresh, and everything was too heavily salted. Definitely not worth the price."

My fiance had just finished
visiting the Top of the Rock and were looking for somewhere with a good lunch menu that wasn't too far. This was a great little find a few blocks away. With the cold and it being the post Valentine's Day hangover, it wasn't very busy for lunch. The food was good, especially the calamari and shrimp fritte as an appetizer. The bread was fresh and warm and delicious as well. With only a few tables being seated, the food took quite a while for all the food prep, so not sure the cause of that. It was very nice also that on weekends, or at least Sunday, they have the brunch and lunch option you can order from."
Dined on 2/16/2014
Particularly appreciated the
northern Italian food. All was quite good. As was the service and ambience."
Dined on 2/15/2014
The Caesar salad was one of the
best I have ever had. Squash soup delicious. Everything was very good and I will definitely eat here again when I am in New York."
Dined on 2/15/2014
We chose this place because it was
right across from our hotel and menu looked good. We were very pleased with our choice. The food was very good, the menu extensive, and were able to talk and visit with our friends without too much noise. Service was good. Wine was good, not great. Overall a very nice place. I would definitely go back."
Dined on 2/14/2014
Growing up and frequenting Italian
restaurants, Bistro Milano is exactly what it is supposed to be. You expect great service, great bread, good wine and a nice experience. Bistro delivers all that. I have had better food, so I can't rate it higher but I certainly didn't leave feeling disappointed.I would definitely go again next time I'm back. My guest enjoyed it as well."
Dined on 2/12/2014
Had a business lunch here. Staff
was attentive, food was food and the restaurant ambiance was good."
Dined on 2/12/2014
We happened on this restaurant
from a hotel recommendation and were especially delighted about the choice. Everything was excellent-- the food, the service, the ambiance, the wine, and it was quiet enough to have conversation without distress! We recommend it highly and would return without question."
