Colicchio & Sons - Main Dining Room
Amazing service, sophisticated foodWe had a delicious dinner here on June 14.
The service is lovely and impeccable,
the food delicious, interesting and beautifully
prepared. All sorts of extra little treats from the chef.
However understated and not at all stuffy. We
hope to go back soon!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWow! Foodtastic,beautiful,friendlyAn amazing experience at this sweepingly beautiful restaurant. Ashley noted that we were dining before theater and the service was incredible. The extras before the meal are a real surprise and incredibly inventive. Still savoring the cucumber panna cotta. The pig was delectable. The doughnut dessert was sublime. Don't miss this dining experience.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWild Boar FusilliMust order the wild boar fusilli. Beautiful room, great service. Not too noisy.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to dineoutstanding food quality and a fairly good service. Bravo chef!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSublime dining experienceSuperb food and beverages served by professional staff in an industrial-chic setting designed to envelop diner in an atmosphere of elegant-ease.
For a special treat try the chef's menu with wine pairings.
After dining stay for cocktails at the bar...the staff, room and beverages are that inviting.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe chose Colicchio & SonsWe chose Colicchio & Sons for our dinner to celebrate our first wedding anniversay, and everything was fantastic. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the restaurant is beautiful and the food was perfect. Our menus were even printed special to read, Happy Anniversary Ben and Nicole. Very nice touch. I would highly recommend Colicchio and Sons to anyone looking for a complete NY dining experience.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food; decent serviceI have nothing but rave reviews for the food here. Additionally, the added touches for specials occasions are really kind of cool.
However, about 1/3 of the way through our dinner, our waiter disappeared. We literally never spoke to him again until he brought our check. The manager ended up clearing our plates and taking our desert orders. We never waited extremely long, I just thought it was odd to see our waiter check up on, and take orders from the tables right next to us, but not ours.
That being said, it was a great. delicious meal, and I would return.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM1 year anniversaryWe spent our one year wedding anniversary in NY and this was one of the restaurants we wanted to get to. It did not disappoint! The service was AWESOME! So attentive. We even got personalized menus with "Happy 1st Anniversary" typed across the top. So special and made us feel important. THhe food was delicious. We can't wait to go back the next time we are in NYC to try another of the chef's tasting menus :)6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinnerMy wife and I dined at Colicchio & Sons on June 8, 2013. We had reservations for 5:00 but were seated about 5:15. Our waiter was Edward. Edward was the best...almost worth the price of dinner just by himself!
We were celebrating our wedding anniversary so they had a message on the top of the menu. The chef sent (2) courses of amuse-bouche. My wife had the palm salad ($25) for the first course, stinging nettle pasta ($24) for the second course, and finished with the soft shell crab ($38). I started with the hamachi ($33), followed by the risotto ($25), and finished with the halibut ($42). We had a small slice of tiramisu for dessert. Total bill: $225. Worth every penny.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMy first time but not my lastI came here to celebrate my birthday with my wife. We were courteously greeted and lead to our tables quickly. It helps to have reservations ahead of time but from what I noticed there was plenty of seating left if you just walk in. The decor says fine dinning but business casual is acceptable as well. The wait staff was polite and patient waiting for us to make out picks. We chose the four course menu option which turned out to be more like seven courses which I never complain about.. The food is spared out over a two hour time period and each plate is finely laid out and decorated just right. As for the taste of the food, each dish had its own complimenting flavors and textures and each dish seemed to want to melt in your mouth.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAn unexpectedly magical eveningWe live near the meatpacking district and dining can be a real hassle. I was able to get a last minute reservation at Colicchio & Sons. The setting is beautiful - spacious and relaxed. The service was unrivaled - very attentive. Not only was the food that we ordered fantastic, but there was unending stream of freebies: amuse bouches, palate cleansers, complimentary donuts in honor of National Donut Day, and they gave us some muffins to take home for breakfast the next day! I don't think I've ever been treated that well at a restaurant in New York City.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMTruely a 5 star experience!The entire dining experience is superb: service, space, food presentation, space and wine pairings. This is the first time I have ever eaten a meal that was carefully architected and executed with the customer's needs and wants in mind. Not only is Colicchio & Sons a fabulous meal, it is a 5-star experience!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways AmazingWe've been to Colicchio and Sons for every special occasion (birthdays, anniversaries, great friends in town) for the past few years and everything about this establishment keeps us coming back. The service is impeccable (friendly, efficient and knowledgable). The food is outstanding. The ambiance is warm and inviting.
We have done the tasting menus and the a la cart menus and have always been satisfied.
This restaurant is one of the finest around.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in NYCEvery month a group of 5 friends get together over dinner and cocktails to catch up and laugh. We call this a 'Family Meeting'. This was our first stop at Collichio & Sons and we have officially set a new bar. We all decided on the a la carte menu as opposed to the tasting menus. We were all eating off each others plates as it was all 'Oh my god... you need to try this!' The wine choice was a great suggestion. The service was the best we have had at any restaurant. We will be back. Well done!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingThis was our fifth time at this restaurant and it has been a perfect meal every time. We ordered the four course tasting menu but were allowed to make changes as needed to fit our tastes. The service was perfect, never having to wait for another round of drinks or more dinner rolls (which are amazing by the way). I can't wait to come back to this establishment.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat DinnerThis was our first visit to this restaurant.. We tried the the tasting menu to sample a variety of items. All items were well prepared and nicely plated. Every member of the service staff was polite with a pleasant demeanor when assisting us. We will return.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dining experience wasOur dining experience was nothing short of the best in the last five years. The service was spot on, attentive, but not hovering. The food was creative, well presented and left us wanting more after every course. The chef's tasting menu with wine pairings was well worth the money and certainly an experience to remember. This was a weekend getaway to NYC and this dinner made it so memorable! Well done. We will absolutely recommend your restuarant and be back for me on our next trip.
P.S. It has to be said that the restuarant's choice to leave most of the architecture of the old Nabisco factory was genius, it makes the atmosphere so unique.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous DinnerWe had a wonderful evening. Great staff, very welcoming. Fabulous food. A great evening couldn't have asked for more.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe four course tasting menuThe four course tasting menu with pairings was beautuifully put together and presented. Service was precise and informative but not intrusive. A perfect celebration dinner.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAmong NYC's best restaurants.Among NYC's best restaurants. Spacious, uncrowded and elegant. Waiter was outstanding.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMaking a special day even betterMy wife and I had the opportunity to celebrate our 30th anniversary at Colicchio & Sons. It started with our menus being personalized with our names wishing us a happy anniversary.
Our captain, Eric Wirz, was a true professional. Having chosen the four course meal, with the wine pairings, we found him to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The food and service was spectacular and the wine pairings were meticulous. Finishing details like a copy of the personalized menu, freshly baked muffins for the next day and a treat for our dog were pleasant surprises.
For a true dining experience I would highly recommend a visit to Colicchio & Sons.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe servers were all veryThe servers were all very professional and easily accomodated for my partner's gluten intolerance - this was a blessing! Also the food was just beatiful and well presented.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was extremely attendantThe staff was extremely attendant and considerate. I requested a vegetable substitution when I ordered my entree. A short time later, I commented that I didn't care for the chilled pea soup presented during the amuse-bouche and my server raised a question about my displeasure, since peas were part of my entree's vegetable medley. I was touched. (As a side note, I enjoy peas, just not as a cold soup.) The octopus starter was delicious. The halibut melted in my mouth. And both of our cocktails & deserts were delightful. I love it when a restaurant lives up to the hype, fanfare and menu pricing!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best in NYCOverall excellent dining experience. Perfect in all respects.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTop of the Meatpacking DistrictWhen I'm in the mood for fabulous food without the fussiness of its neighboring restaurants, I go here. The rooms are beautiful and welcoming. The staff is friendly and highly professional. Seamless service in the classic manner with captains and a team of youthful exuberant wait staff. If you're lucky, you'll get Chase as your Captain but they are all great. The food is thoughtful, seasonal and exciting. Try the hearts of palm salad or hammachi followed by one of the great pasta offerings or main courses. I loved the pork with cheeks on the side. Those donuts on the desert menu are not your standard fare. Don't leave the restaurant without trying at least one. Oh, and don't forget the fab wines.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceI came here for a graduation celebration, and the experience was impeccable. The service was outstanding. Our waitress was highly knowledgeable about each dish and ingredient. The sommelier was great at recommending a wine to go with our meal. The complimentary amuse bouche dishes and muffins at the end were a nice touch.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy B'Day Evie!!I took my wife here for her birthday and it was spectacular. Upon our arrival the staff immediately showed us to our seats. I told C&S that it was my wife's birthday but had no idea what to expect. I won't ruin the surprise for you, but my wife was ecstatic with the personalized treatment. We ordered the four course menu with the wine pairing + the cheese plate with wine pairing. I have to say that the wine pairing was PERFECT!!! Ryan Mills-knapp is a genius!!! Thank you!!!
The food was as equally impressive with our favorites being the Monkfish w/ Escargot, Braised Beef Short Ribs & the Bucatini w/ Clams. Thank you Chef!!
The staff never left us unattended and each dish arrived with perfect precision. We can't wait to go back again!!!

Now with its reinvention, it is truly one of the best food experiences in the city.. Every detail from the well-informed staff (even the busboys can speak to the dining experience and details) to the multitude of amuse bouche surprises, this is a first-rate affair. The flexibility and good-natured attitude is rare and welcome.Great service, magnificent food, casual atmosphere...the perfect restaurant.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat TimeFood was fantastic and the Service was exceptional. The wine steward came over without having to be asked and he was both very approachable and knowledgable. Our waiter was great, asking our names and using it every time he came to the table, making the service very personalized. The food was interesting and top notch.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timeI took my wife here for our anniversay dinner. This was our first visit to Colicchio & Sons and we both enjoyed the experience.The the food was excellent as was the service. Overall a very good restaurant.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA perfect anniversaryWe made a reservation for two at the main dining room
As we were visiting New York and didn't know what to expect we were rewarded with the most amazing surprise
The place is cosy yet elegant and the food is beyond magic
We have loved and enjoyed EVERY bite.
The chef is an artist and the pastry chef is amazing
It would be unfair not to mention the absolute kindness of our host and the whole crew, they customed the menu for our anniversary and have made this diner memorable
ONE WORD: EXTRAORDINARY5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the price - No corkage SundayAbsolutely try to take advantage of no corkage sundays, where colicchio & sons will waive the $45/bottle corkage. They allow one bottle per person, max of three for the table. An amazing deal that enables you to go big on their incredible food menu.
The foie gras was out of this world, the risotto was flavorful intriguingly textured, and the pork shoulder was easily the best I've ever had. The two amuse-bouches as well as takeway treat were a re-affirmation that you were at hands down one of the best high class restaurants in NYC.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was spectacular.The service was spectacular. While the food wasnt "elite" there were a couple of dishes that were wonderful. I thought they could have done better with smaller amouse bouches with better quality, but it was very nice of them to bring out two free courses with 6 bites of food.
The bread was fresh baked in a cast iron pan and was refilled upon request. All of the dishes were good, but only 2 were "Excellent".
Overall i would definitely recommend coming here for a special occasion or with a group for a nice business dinner, but its a little pricey for just a normal night out.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGourmet delights.We were seated in the Main Dining Room, Tap Room also lovely but slightly more casual.From beginning to end our experience was beyond expectations.I booked as a celebration for hubbies 60th.Greeted by Ed and Jackie, offered champagne,which was a kind gesture and it didn't stop there.Birthday wishes offered in a very unassuming way.Personal touches right through the evening.Won't say too much as wouldn't want to spoil whatever kindness they offer. Very knowledgeable about the menu, service was perfection and discreet.Friendly,happy and professional, these are people who love what they do.Food delicious and great atmosphere.Sommelier knew his stuff too.Only problem with recommending this place is that it will make it harder to get a table!!!!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded ExpectationsGreat meal. I've sat in the bar room before and found it unmemorable. But the food in the main dining room was creative, deliberate, and delicious.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing findOne of the best places we have been to in New York for a while. Very nice interior, a large warehouse space but very warmly decorated with decent sized tables and lots of space in between! The atmosphere was very good and relaxed. Our waiter was absolutely lovely and the food was delicious, upmarket Italian/Modern European food.

The waiting staff were friendly and helpful, and extremely attentive. We chose the four course tasting menu with wine pairings, and everything was very good and beautifully presented. We would definitely come back on our next trip to NYC.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic anniversary dinnerOne of the rare dining experiences we've had where the food was spectacular and the service was equally impressive. So many times a restaurant achieves one without the other. This place was perfect.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAttentive service and absolutelyAttentive service and absolutely delicious food. Love this restaurant. It's my second time here. My guests were important out of town clients and they were very impressed.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood but not GreatThe staff were so friendly, attentive and not at all condescending with questions. The food was delicious and presented beautifully. We also received two amuse bouches; fun and a nice touch.
The dining room is open, busy and VERY LOUD. Unfortunately, some of the wait staff had heavy accents making it difficult to understand/ hear our questions. Not a place to go for an intimate dinner.
We had the 4 course menu. It was all delicious except for rubbery clams in my Bucatini with Clams. The manager apologized, offered another dish but I declined as my husband was finished. I had expected to have something comped.
$300 for 2 with 1/2 bottle of wine 2 cocktails & tip. There are so many Restos in Manhattan that we will try somewhere else next time5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect in every way!Both me and my husband said: this was the best dinner we have ever had. And thats true!

I informed the restaurant in advance about this being our anniversary in hopes that they would arrange for us a nice seating. Well they went beyond that by printing a special menu with the date and a congratulatory for our 2nd anniversary, it went a huge way for wifey and the reaction on her face was priceless. The service was great and attentive, they provided a lot of samplings for food and the main meal was excellent. There was no rush as we spent almost over 2 hours. At the end of our meal we were provided with a small cake with "Happy Anniversary!" written on the side with chocolate and the special menu was handed to us in an envelop to remember.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ExperienceWe went for my husband's birthday and it was such a wonderful experience.
