highly recommendFirst time here and will definitely go back. Good pour very good food nice setting overall had a wonderful experience.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNice as always!Good food, beautiful hostess, nice and attentive manager and good service! Bartender not too friendly though.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat pre -theater dinnerNot sure what to expect, we made our reservation for 5:30 so we had enough time for 8:00 show. Service was excellent; our meal arrived within 15 minutes of our arrival. The veal Osso bocco was wonderful. Tender and delicious. They also had several vegetarian meals for my husband to select from (which is unusual). Even with the very rich chocolate mousse cake and mixed berry tart for dessert we were finished within the hour. Plenty of time to walk over to the theater. We will definitely be back when visiting the city again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodHave been to this restaurant many times and always order the pasta. It is consistently good.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMbefore theatreThis was our first experience here. Service was great, the pre-theatre dinner was delicious as well as generous and they remembered that I mentioned in the reservation that we were celebrating my husband's birthday. It was a great start to the evening. Would recommend to anyone.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-TheaterThis is a perfect restaurant for pre-theater dining.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had 11We had eleven people in our party. They were family members from North Carolina and some had never eaten in New York City. After the initial sticker shock, they perused the menu often asking our server - who was excellent by the way - what the dishes were. Several of the men got the Filet Mignon and thought it was the best steak they had ever eaten. Several others of us dined on the various Italian seafood dishes. Everyone agreed that each meal was well-prepared and very tasty. The asparagus was a particular hit - tender and delicious! The only disappointment was the calamari appetizer. It was tough. Also, we were disappointed to discover that the prix fixe menu was not available to parties of 10 or more.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVery NiceWhile I would avoid the adjectives of excellent, amazing, etc., I will say that the meal we received was very nice and actually exceeded my expectation. I chose the restaurant because it was the only one I could find in that area, on Open Table, with 5:30pm openings for a party of 6. So I wasn't expecting much. However, we arrived a little early and were received warmly. We were seated and the wait staff was prompt in offering us water and taking drink orders. The suggestions we received were very helpful in both appetizers and assistance with the wine list. The food was served at a nice unhurried pace by our friendly server who recognized, without being told, we were in no hurry. However, he remained attentive throughout our meal.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointedI have been to this restaurant many times over the years. Food is always great and the service is wonderful. Brought friends from England who were visiting. They thoroughly enjoyed it and made plans to go back again on their own the next evening.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for business lunchHad a recent lunch here - excellent service and reasonable prices.

TheThe food was very good. The mood was great
Dessert was yummy.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was quite possible theThis was quite possible the best meal that I have ever eaten. The gnocchi practically melted in my mouth, and the carbonara was tender and flavorful. Italian is my favorite type of food, and this restaurant is cleanly at the top of my list of favorites. The location is perfect for someone who wants to walk to a Broadway show after their meal, and the food arrived about 10 minutes after we ordered! It's also romantic with the ambiance, and served as a perfect set-up before I proposed to my fiance. I don't think that I will have another trip to New York that doesn't include a dinner at Trattoria Dopo Teatro.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, as always. ServiceGreat, as always. Service is always great, food is always great.

Great place for theater goers.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I we had a greatMy wife and I we had a great time eating, and the food was Amazing!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good with some inconsistency.It was our first visit to Dopo Teatro and we lunched before a Broadway matinee. The restaurant is lovely and the service friendly. Our waitstaff was under-attentive due to the crowd. They seemed to have too many tables to cover and some of our order was not delivered. The food was good; although, my grilled branzino was undercooked - yuk! We had our 12-year old daughter who loved the Gnocci & cheese dish.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAn excellent value in Manhattan!Excellent location in relation to Broadway shows. Went after the 2pm matinee on Wednesday (at 5pm) and were seated right away. Service was prompt and courteous. Food excellent. We split the rice ball for app - v. good. Husband had spaghetti w/ marinara and loved the sauce...and being Italian, he is pretty fussy about the sauce and said it's the best marinara he's had out in years. I had the thin spaghetti with asparagus, tomatoes and shrimp in olive oil and herbs which was so light, fresh and delicious. I was pleased that it was seasoned perfect and not soaked in oil which many places tend to do. Very good tari masu for dessert as well. We will definitely go back. Prices reasonable!! Enjoy!!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a last minute findThis was a last minute find for a large group that wanted to eat in the Theater District, very nice, good authentic Italian food, would definitely go back.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat value in Times Square areaDopo Teatro was a terrific find in the Times Square area. Truly a huge step above the glitzy chains and "quick hitters" for theater goers, they do have a fairly priced prix fixe menu to get you in and out with good food but since we had time before the show, we decided to go "soup to nuts," drinks, appetizer (buffalo mozzarella ala caprese), pasta (I had their homemade spinach tagliatelle bolognese, my date had their lobster and seafood mezzelune with a side of sauteed spinach) and capping it off with pannacotta and cappuccino for desert. We felt that the $120 we spent (including tip) was well worth it for a relaxing meal, nice ambiance and terrific service in one of the most frantic tourist spots.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was an awesome surprise!!!This was an awesome surprise!!! Didn't know anything about this restaurant except it was near our theatre! The food was delicious and the atmosphere was fun and friendly!!!
