    Our group of 6 had a reservation and they were ready for us. The service was good, the food was exactly what we ordered - everyone was happy - and we didn't all eat lasagna! We wanted to sit for a long time and they were fine with it. Price was right. Would go again.

    I brought a group of coworkers here for a hastily arranged group dinner while in New York. I had walked by the previous evening and noticed the menu, which has a great range of italian dishes and reasonable prices. Lasagna did not disappoint. They were very accommodating in getting enough space for us at a reasonable time, the guests all found several items on the menu which they liked, and the service was attentive and friendly. Because it was summer the windows were open, which helped make the climate nice inside, but allowed the bustling street noise to dominate the room - so not necessarily the quietest place but that was completely understandable and we were fine with it. The food was great! Lasagna exceeded our expectations.

    In a city where food is supreme, this is not the place to eat! Lasagna's meals were very ordinary, not well presented, and some things were served cold!! There is nothing I could recommend from a group of 6 main dishes and appetizers. The Caesar salad was just a few bites, so can't even tell you about the taste. The fish filet dish and the veal dish tasted the same (although they were different preps). Guess the lasagna goes into the micro before it comes to the table (but one lasagna dish did not get nuked, it was cold). Wait staff were not attentive - water glasses weren't filled, we couldn't get more bread, didn't get to order a second glass of wine, etc.

    Dined on 5/16/2014
    I grew up in NYC. I've been to many restaurants in each of the 5 boroughs. When I wanted a taste of lasagna, what better place than a place called "The Lasagna Restaurant"? What a flop! I and my wife ordered the meat lasagna with extra ricotta in her lasagna. I could not taste ANY ricotta in my dish. When a restaurant is named "Lasagna Restaurant", then the last thing they should screw up on is the lasagna. The only reason ricotta would taste like that is if it is expired. I looked for the Dept of Health's grading card and it is not displayed. For dessert I ordered the tartuffo. I tasted freezer burn as if the dish the cut open and returned to the freezer without being re-wrapped. OpenTable should have them removed that as a referral.

    I found the hostess and staff very nice and acommadating. I was just disappointed in the lasagna not being hot enough. I was in a hurry to see a jazz show so I didn't send it back to warm it up but I'm sure it would have tasted better had I done that.

    I work in midtown and most places are fairly overpriced for a sit down lunch in the area. This was great, $13.95~15.95 prefixed appitizer and entre. The food wasnt amazing but it was good enough. My favorite part was the outdoor seating. We were able to walk right up at noon and grab a table right in the sun. Usually in midtown you have to make a reservation or get there very early. This is a little walk from the center of things but well worth it if you have the time.

    Very happy with the menu for food and wine. We arrives on time for our reservation but it was packed so we waited at the bar - good sign that it was a good restaurant. We ordered a glass of wine and were quickly seated a few minutes later. The staff was friendly but not overly attentive. We would have ordered a bottle of wine but no one ever asked us if we needed anything. While I might not go here again anytime soon, I would order from them for take out and it will be on my list again after we have tried some other new places.

    Wonderful food and delicious lasagna. Wine list could be improved as there are not a lot of choices. Additionally, the corkage fee is $26 which is quite steep for a casual restaurant. The food more than made up for the wine list as their sauces, pasta, and everything else was great.

    What can you expect from a place called Lasagna? Yup ... LASAGNA. They make all different kinds of lasagna. I had a crabmeat lasagna in a spicy fradiavolo sauce. It was fantastic! My wife had a grilled chicken lasagna. It wasn't as good as mine, but she enjoyed it. We both had Caesar salad. It was a bit on the small side, but VERY good. If lasagna is not your thing, they also have other dishes as well. We had a wonderful time and spent less that $60 for the two of us (glass of wine included!)

    What can you say about a restaurant that serves mostly lasagna? Nothing special. I would, however, recommend that they get rid of the double pasta leaves with no filling in between, they don't make me full faster they just make me feel like I am being ripped off... Other than that, it was ok.

    Both my boyfriend and I ordered lasagna. His was sirloin which he really enjoyed. I ordered eggplant which was ok - there didn't seem to be as much eggplant as I would have expected. I also had enough left overs for a full meal the next day. We also ordered coquilles st jacques as an appetizer. It was decent - the scallops could have been cooked a little longer. The staff was friendly. The restaurant seemed a bit warm temperature wise. I thought it was ok overall but my boyfriend enjoyed it and loved the portion size.

    I enjoyed my dining experience here. The food was great and they serve large portions so we ended up taking a great deal of food home. The manager was nice and attended to our table himself as the 1 and only waiter there didnt seem to know much or be very helpful with anything. Of course the manager has other duties so you gotta give him a little slack for having us waiting a while for him to come around in order to ask for something additional we needed. Also, we dined for lunch so you gotta expect better service as far as more waitstaff in the evening right? I would hope so. However, thats not what I heard. You decide as the food is still well worth the trip.

  • For a place called "Lasagna,"
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 12/20/2012
    For a place called "Lasagna," one assumes that you are going to experience a mind-blowing, life-altering, Lasagna that is fit for an Italian Princess; however, the "Lasagna" that I personally had, was small, underwhelming and didn't possess much flavor. I ordered the sirloin lasagna and while it was fair, it wasn't anything to write home about. What's of more concern is the lack of an area for Hostesses to occupy, thus, we were surrounded by chatty staff lingering by our entryway table. The staff also forgot we put in for an appetizer, but after receiving our entree and tasting it, we let it go and decided to get real food elsewhere. The staff were also more engaged in personal endeavors than an interest to ask if we needed anything...

    This restaurant is one of my favorite neighborhood gems in mid-town. My husband and I have been going there for years and have taken many friends with us and have never been disappointed. I orderered the veal lasagna which was outstanding, hot and cheesy and melted in your mouth. My vegetarian husband has ordered the mushroom and 4 cheese lasagna and couldn't find anything to complain about. It's just that good. As for dessert, we can always tell a good italian place if they have great tiramisu and once again it was great. Overall a great experience.

    The service was very nice. The maitre d' gave us a very warm welcome and accomodated our needs very well. Our server was also a very nice person. However, we were quite disappointed with the food itself. Considering that the name of the restaurant is lasagna restaurant, i expected the lasagna to be really good. There were layers of pasta without anything, no salt, not enough cheese. the menu said that the penne alla vodka was hot & spicy. it wasnt. it was tangy. although we did like the bruscetta. overall very disappointing food.

    Nice ambience, and pleasant wait-staff. The menu was ample, obviously heavy on lasagna choices. The food was excellent, and the lasagna was a treat. The only complaint-a very MINOR one, is the service was a little slow. However, the food and atmosphere made up for that. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, and I plan on returning to try other items on the menu!
