    I went a couple of times, once for drinks and once for dinner. Yesterday I went for brunch and the server was rude. Barely answered any of our questions and her responses were and facial expressions were unfriendly. I understand when one has a bad day at work or elsewhere but there are standards that this restaurant has to live up to.

    I chose Locanda Verde for my husband's birthday dinner. The food was, for the most part, incredible. Our waiter was really kind and knowledgeable - so much so that my husband and I talked about how the service was really good. However, between our pasta course and our entree, we waited 55 minutes. After waiting 30 minutes, the waiter told us the food was coming out in just ten minutes. After waiting another 20 minutes, the manager came out to tell us that she's sorry and the food is coming out 'in 90 seconds.' It came out a few minutes afterward. My husband and I were furious and the long wait ruined the birthday dinner. We enjoyed the food, but waiting that long - with no solid explanation - was unacceptable. Especially after spending $$$!

    With much hype I went here. I am quite picky with my Italian food. The food was delicious and think that the non-pasta dishes were actually the best. Try the duck entree and start with the Fois gras.

    i found this restaurant by searching "small plates near MSG". There were 4 of us, dining before a concert. The service was excellent; pleasant, knowledgable and accommodating. The food was delicious and the presentation was impressive. We enjoyed 2-3 plates each and some of the specials, as our server suggested. The amount of food was just right. The sangria was excellent. All of the plates were delicious. There was a pork sandwich that was off the charts. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.

    We had dinner here a few weeks before and loved it but we're SO disappointed when we returned for breakfast. It took 20mins before anyone even took our drinks order and then the food came out before the drinks (which was just coffee!). The waitress was very average. Food was ok but nothing to rave about like dinner. We also got out into the tiniest corner table that had chairs knocking into my wife's back when the next tables guests moved around. Next time will be going to Buddy's!

    This was undoubtably the best restaurant experience I have ever had in Manhattan (and I've eaten in a lot of places). The food was amazing. The staff were absolutely fantastic and the atmosphere was spot on. It's also very reasonably priced for such beautiful food. My perfect restaurant and Italy is my most visited holiday destination.

    I returned for breakfast because I enjoyed my meal so much last year when I was in NYC. I ordered the ricotta blueberry pancakes with lemon curd and they were slightly overdone. Slight burnt taste to it and dry - disappointing...The sausage was good though. Also, after ordering the waitstaff didn't really come around again until I was almost done. I would have preferred some honey with my tea that I ordered. Kind of an anti-climatic trip this time.

    Had brunch at Locanda Verde with a dear friend. We ate outside and watched the world go by while we sipped our really good café Americano and enjoyed delicious fare, he the ricotta blueberry pancakes, me the oeuvo modenese. We even split a pastry. The server was amiable and efficient (although it took several requests to get really hot coffee!) and we never felt rushed. Would go back in a heartbeat.

    I had been here before for drinks and always wanted to come back based on the great reviews, so I decided to try it for brunch with friends, but left pretty disappointed. Hostess was nice and our server was super friendly, the problem was the food. I had the uovo al forno, which were two baked eggs with a few greens on top. Period. It was flavorless and not good at all. My friends had the frittata, and said it was under seasoned as well. It was three of us and we had one drink each, shared the ricotta cheese (the best part of our meal, really good!), one egg entree each, two shared desserts and one coffee each, and we ended up paying $70 each, which in my opinion is way too much for brunch. Especially a meh brunch. Not coming back.

    Fun, bustling place to have a nice brunch! Inventive menu! Waffles, poached eggs with hash and herbed eggs with salad were all great. Green fresh pressed juice phenomenal! Coffee good! Cheddar/ olive biscuits love love love! Service so-so. Waitperson had to be reminded a few times to bring us things. When reminded, he did come through and apologized though. He seemed overloaded and there seemed to be a lack of communication between team members. I will come back. Food is Superb!

    NOT LIKE THE FIRST TIME, that's why I went back. Really annoyed me that for a $14.00 bottle of wine retail, they had the nerve to charge $60.00. I'm not cheap but this is chutzpah. I brought a party of 6. Mistakes happen, so they dropped my entree plate, apologized and went to make another one, But did they offer a glass of wine, on the house while I had to wait. No business sense.

    From the crab crostini to the funghi misti and the pasta special-- with a particular shout out for the peach and fig crostata-- which gave me a whole new respect for herb flavors with dessert. My mother mentioned in an offhand manner while we were waiting to be seated that it was my birthday, but we didn't say anything else about it. After a really delightful meal with wonderful food and service they brought out a dessert with a candle-- just a little something that was so festive and nice. From start to finish it was a flawless meal and fantastic time.

    I recently took some clients here for dinner and it was a hit. Excellent wine selection and great atmosphere. I ordered the Halibut as my main which I thought could have used a bit more flavor but was definitely still enjoyable. The standout dishes for me were the pastas; I cannot recommend the Squid Ink Linguini enough. I definitely plan on going here again, next time with my fiance for a romantic dinner.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of this restaurant. Lots of people. Lots of hustle and bustle. Great menu. Wine is all Italian but we took their recommendation and had a wonderful bottle of wine (or two) for $75/bottle. The food was delicious. So many things that really appealed to us and it was hard to make a decision. Most everyone got fish. The waitress was very nice about splitting things. We would highly recommend it and we will definitely go back next time we are in NY.

    Went to Locanda Verde for an anniversary dinner. Staff was friendly and happily reseated us after our request (it it very bright on one side). Everything was ok, but it wasn't particularly noteworthy, except for the wine, which ever very nice. The starting salads were "ok" but a little basic (same as in many other places), and the main course was "over-spiced" (too much rosemary). Our waiter was fine, maybe she could have been a little more present (or higher energy). All in all, the experience was fine, but not a must-go restaurant, and lower ranking on my value for money list.

    The first three tables we were shown could barely accommodate 4 people. They crammed too many tables in a tight space. One table was wedged in a corner and 1/3 of the table surface couldn't be used. One could easily talk to the people sitting at the next table and unfortunately hear everything they were conversing about. Service was good, my water glass never was half empty. The server was knowledgeable about the menu. There was no bread to start the meal with- apparently one has to order from the "crostini" menu. Entrees and dessert were very good. I am not sure I would go again, too many other fantastic restaurants in the city to yet discover. Great meal, not a lot of room in this restaurant.

    It really doesnt cost much to give a few more strands of linguine. I have eaten at many italian restaurants, in italy and here (marea, morini, michelin starred and not) but i have never ever seen smaller portions anywhere!! Not anywhere. Certainly not in Italy. Not even in france! I am not a huge eater, but frankly, I think it is an insult to give portions so small. On another note.. The art work of Bobby Deniro's father is beautiful.

    I made reservations well in advance to have an opportunity to dine at Marea. After all, Frommers and Fodors gave the restaurant high marks. We were not disappointed. While the tables are bit close, we could easily carry on a conversation. The lighting and overall look and feel of the place prompts the word "lovely." Our server kept us on her radar, and made great recommendations. Our dinner was superb--we shared an appetizer and enjoyed our own beautifully-prepared entrees. Marea was, in all aspects, the perfect place for our special occasion dinner.
