Diner Reviews
  • "Our food was very flavorful. The la sagna was tasty. The branzino was filleted and prepared nicely; the accompanying risotto was very nice with asparagus and lemon. Service got slow, without the restaurant getting busy. We waited over 20 minutes from when we finished until we received our bill."

  • "Service was so attentive as to be intrusive. Everyone had the best of intentions but there was no end to interruptions."

  • "This was our first time at this restaurant and we found it on restaurant.com. Great service and the food was very good too. They took our reservation right on time which was important to us since we were going to a concert at Madison Sq Garden."

  • "We recently ate At Intermezzo and had a very nice meal. My dish (Branzino) had some sauce on it that I would have preferred wasn't on it, but the rest of our party enjoyed everything. The prices were incredibly reasonable, particularly for Manhattan. The server was very friendly and helpful, even though we chose not to order liquor or wine that evening. I found this refreshing as many times servers lower their service if people don't order a lot."

  • "We enjoyed a nice enough meal at Intermezzo- not fabulous but adequate. It did get loud and filled up between 6:30-7:30. The dining area seemed a little dark; I like low, warm lighting at dinner but this just felt under-lit. Their prices were moderate compared to many others nearby and they had us in and out in plenty of time for our show nearby. (Good for before the Joyce or Linda Gross theater, etc.) Next time we'll try 'Trois Canards' around the corner- they have a good pre fixe too."

  • "Valon is our go-to server at Intermezzo. He's knowledgeable, personal, and has a great sense of humor. The crab & fettuccini social was great. This is the spot I always take out-of-town guests for a great dinner. INTERMEZZO NEVER DISAPPOINTS!"

  • "Brunch was super fun. The food was decent, but the drinks were plentiful and the service was on point. I would definitely go back!"

  • "The drag performancer was very entertaining. My only complain is that the music was extrely loud not very conducive for carrying a conversation. Perhaps a few decibels lower may have been better. I'd definitely return and check out the show."

  • "I found this restaurant through another website as I had a gift certificate. The service was very good as the waiters were attentive. I liked the focaccia bread (wish they have more than the few square pieces) and the olive oil that came along with it. I ordered the pappardelle dish and didn't find it salty/tasty enough. This is coming from someone who prefers less salt in their food...my dish seemed to be lacking flavor, I could not really taste the cream or salmon. My dining partner had the gnocchi with the pesto sauce and I thought that was really good. The sauce was delicious and the texture of the gnocchi was perfect."

  • "A few diners were so noisy (screaming) we had to change our table twice. It was still too noisy for us to talk and enjoy our food."

  • "Thanks again to the staff, front and back, for making special celebration even better. The staff at Intermezzo is always on point. It's well managed and the wait-staff is well informed and knowledgeable. We had the octopus special, since we've eaten nearly all of the fare on the regular menu. The waiters are always great at pairing a wine with your meal, too"

  • "Had a fun time here with a group of friends before a show at the Joyce Theatre. The food, music, location and service was very good. We will definately be returning. Very small venue but this just makes it more intimate. Everyone was was friendly. Good experience."

  • "Four of us arrived from Vancouver Island after purchasing coupons on Groupon. We found this restaurant the best find, ever! The food was of gourmet quality, the ambience warm and friendly and the the incredible wait staff couldn't do enough for us. We have recommended this to anyone looking for an upscale experience at a very reasonable price. Delicious, clean, friendly, inviting. We could have eaten there every night!"

  • "I've been here for large group lunches and dinners for 2 and 4, and it's always a good experience. Extensive menu, courteous, attentive staff (waiter offered my husband club soda to clean a spill on his shirt within seconds), nice vibe (never feel rushed), and great location. Another place I love coming back to."

  • "This pl;ace has been around for years and it's new headquarters are brighter and more "done" it's predecessor . It has a ridiculously inexpensive prefix lunch which is well prepared and good for the price. Dinner also has prefix. Our foos for dinner was good straight forward Italian fare. The waitstaf was very attentive. The problem is the noise level. The place was only 2/3 full and the nose from the bar area and a table of 6 near us made it difficult to hear, can not imagine what it is like when full. If the noise is addressed this could be THE cheap and cheerful local haunt."

  • "Had a great time. Food was good and price was fair. Sam our waiter was excellent. The rest of the staff from when we walked in until we left were very good."

  • "We decided to go with the price fix menu and were very satisfied with the food quality and taste. For NYC, it was a very reasonable dinner option with a variety of entrees from which to choose. We had 4 people in our group and everyone was pleased."

  • "The setting is festive, elegant and pleasant. You might need a flashlight to read the menu, or ask the waiter to turn up the chandeliers. This would be a great restaurant for a romantic date or a business dinner (in my case) because unlike so many cacophonous Manhattan bistros, one can actually carry on a conversation without a bullhorn. The waitstaff was attentive if helicoptering, but took the hint and followed our signals. Portions were ample. Food was delicious. We were happy to pay $50 for two prix-fixe dinners including a glass of wine apiece. For anyone visiting Chelsea galleries or attending performances at the Atlantic Theatre or the Irish Rep, I would definitely recommend Intermezzo."

  • "I was looking for a restaurant near the Atlantic Theatre Company's theatre on West 20th Street - Yelp reviews for this place were fairly good (esp for the drag brunch on weekends, which I *will* be trying). The restaurant is spacious and airy, in yellow & white, the don't shoehorn in the tables, and has a vibrant bar on a Friday night. A $15.95 prix fixe menu is offered Mon-Fri, and it's well worth it. The service was friendly and attentive without being annoying, food arrived quickly, was well presented, and quite tasty. I was too full, after the Caesar salad and pork scaloppine piccata to get dessert!!"

  • "The food was average, but that's not what brunch is for!... we had an AMAZING time. It was SOOOOOO MUCH FUN!! The drag show was SUPER offensive, but VERY VERY VERY FUNNY and entertaining."

  • "Enjoyed a great show during brunch. Really energetic and entertaining. Very crowded and loud, but it worked. Food was kind of an afterthought."

  • "Asked for a quiet table and were told it should not be a problem onSundays, but there was a band and the nosiy was incredibly loud. Of course, we were elderly with three people wit hhearing problems. Nonetheless, good value and food portion."

  • "Our party of 7 was very pleased with our dining experience at Intermezzo. We have only praise, no complaints. Would heartily recommend it to anyone."

  • "Be warned this place is not for those who get ticked off by noise easily.. the music is LOUD.. as in very loud! They do try to turn it down a little when requested but honestly the music makes the ambiance of the place therefore as patrons we should respect that too! But as our waiter (I believe his name was Miguel) said once we knock back a few of the peach bellinis we'll be asking him to turn up the music . The $20 AYCD is def worth it. None of our cups were ever empty, it was always refilled before we were able to even take the last sip of our glasses. The food isn't anything to really rave about, but it wasn't bad. The best part besides the AYCD is the drag show. She (Tina) was not only hilarious but she had amazing dance moves!"

  • "The restaurant gave outstanding service, better than average food and threw in a cross dressing show to boot. I went there for dinner with friends on a Sunday night and the bar crowd dominated with a show and music going on. So we were a little worried about the fit of our choice but then the excellent table service and good food kicked in. I will definitely return to this happy and fun place."

  • "It is a fun and colorful group and high energy at the bar, or tables of large parties. We were 4 and had to request the music be turned down. The food is so-so, and the service haphazard. Unfortunately, we had gone to see people we wanted to hear speak, and the chaos broke the intimacy of our dinner."

  • "Ordered the polenta and eggplant to start which were both very good. Polenta was not what I was expecting but was pleasantly surprised. Both of our entrees were very good. Service was very friendly."

  • "We go there often and always take our friends and family from out of town, as we live in in the neighborhood. One of us always orders one of the specials. They never fail to disappoint! I had the lobster special on this occasion, but I've never had a bad meal off the regular menu! Quite the contrary! Everything is amazing. Generally, the service is outstanding, too! Valon is my favorite!! If your in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, make a trip to Intermezzo! If your not in Chelsea, make a special trip, as it's only 2 blocks off the C & E trains at 23rd St.! Try any of the dishes served with their homemade pasta or risotto! After dinner, try the tiramisu and/or the creme brulee. And don't forget the wine and vodkatinis!"

  • "Great drag show along with food and people. You will make friends no matter what. Due in the evening it's very mellow total opposite of brunch. Great food and service no matter time of day. Love the pre- made sangria"

  • "Octopus appetizer excellent. The pan-seared bronzino was served with just risotto was tasty but lacked presentation- serving a vegetable as well would have added color and improved the entree."
