A word from Re Sette
A royal feast awaits you at Re Sette, transporting guests to another era with exquisite design and elegant Southern Mediterranean cuisine. Downstairs, the 1,800-square-foot restaurant offers seating in an intimate dining room, lounge and bar. Guests enjoy a grand entrance, with a vaulted ceiling and long mahogany bar that features an expansive menu of grappa, the favored drink of Italian kings. The designs regal influences are seen throughout and conjure an opulent time: jewel-toned tapestry-covered chairs dimly lit ornate candelabras and deep Naugahyde banquettes against brick red textured walls.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I met here for dinner. This cozy restaurant is staffed with attentive and professional waitstaff. Our waiter was very well-versed on the menu and the individual components of each dish. He did mind giving us his recommendations on what he thought were the best dishes and we gladly took his information. I found this place on GroupOn for a steal and was glad that I took the opportunity to buy this offer when it was available as I found out from the table next to me it sold out when they tried to obtain this deal for themselves:-) The fried calamari was delicious we enjoyed a fish and a shrimp dish and topped it off with a wonderful dessert that we shared. We will visit this place again if we're in the neighborhood."

  • "We bought a groupon to go to ReSette. We don't use groupons very often, but we were going with friends, knew we would order more that the groupon, and figured, why not save a little money? The food, and the service were outstanding. I had the tuna tartare, which was excellent, but after I tasted my husband's PEI mussels, I realized that I should have ordered them, too. Fresh, delicious, and with a fradiavlo sauce that was incredible. Dinner was delicious, too. My husband had the filet. It was tender, tasty and perfectly medium rare. Two of us had the pork chop milanese. It was incredible, tasty, and the salad the it was topped with made it so refreshing. Our waiter was amazing. No one made us feel bad about the groupon. Excellent!"

  • "We had a very nice lunch, the food was wonderful but the service was lagging. We had to attempt to flag our waitress down 4 times, for coffee and then for the check. It did not appear to be that busy."

  • "I had a groupon and was very impressed by the service, NO extra charges, the incredible food and fantastic area... It was a 10min walk to catch Pippin. I would recommend this to everyone."

  • "Lots of testosterone energy going on...good for P.E.I. mussels only, entrées were okay, nothing notable or special. would go to again for mussels and grabbing a quick drink."

  • "The food at Re Sette is exceptional and well-priced, especially if you use the dinner Groupon for 2 or 4. I have been to the restaurant many times and went back for a special birthday celebration. I would have given this restaurant an outstanding review, however, we were seated across from a table of 7 women and 1 man who were so loud we couldn't hear ourselves above their screaming and cackling. It made for a most unpleasant dining experience. The staff was well aware of it and did nothing to ask them to keep it down -- on behalf of the other diners since the ceiling is very low in the restaurant."

  • "Very close seating, not a quiet setting, moderate service. We went for fine food, not dissapointed but expected service and ambience to match the cost."

  • "ReSette is one of my fav go to spots! went to celebrate a birthday. The food always on point, consistent and the service is always good. You cannot go wrong with anything on this menu! The only disappointing thing is that they don't advertise that they have a pre-fixed menu and they don't offer it to you unless you ask. This is misleading and that practice needs to stop. Either they are going to offer the special menu or not, but hiding it isn't cool. STILL I love this place!"

  • "Pastas and sauces are fresh. The dishes were creative and cooked to perfection. The lobster ravioli was tasty and the shrimp was succulent. I tried bites of several dishes and was impressed with all of them. Dessert was disappointing. The tiramisu is homemade, but bland. As someone who makes an outrageous tiramisu with marscapone, I found this one to be nothing special. As it is, I never eat anyone else's, but my son wanted to try someone else's. He won't be doing that again. Chocolate crunch cake was ok. I found the desserts to be run of the mill and not worth the $9. Other than that, it was good."

  • "My friend and I had a Groupon for this restaurant and she had been here before and loved it. The food was very good. We had the fried calamari as an appetizer and there were so many it could have been a dinner for one person. They were delicious. I had the salmon which was pretty good and my friend had the apple-pear-gorgonzola ravioli which were incredible. Good wine. Very nice ambience--tastefully decorated, comfortable seating, quiet and intimate. Delightful experience!"

  • "I was able to get a grilled chicken pailard with salad on top...excellently flavored and considering I was on a diet, I really appreciated a healthier and lower calorie alternative. Can't really comment on the rest of the menu."

  • "I had bought this Groupon deal, which includes appetizer, 2 entrees, 2 house wines, for over $50. And when the bill came I still owed them $60 after the groupon voucher. The only extra thing I had was a dessert. It's not about the money but it's about my expectations with the food. It was horrible! I would never ever come back. I wanted my girlfriend to have a good time but it was ruined. If the food was good, I wouldn't care so much about the price but I think paying over $60/person is completely unacceptable. "

  • "I am a huge fan of Italian food. the people at Resette know exactly how to do that. The food is amazing, the staff is friendly, and the ambiance is lively and contagious. I look forward to coming back many more times. "

  • "Food was ok, a bit too spicy for my liking. My husband said the bread was awful, so I didnt even try it. Waitress was excellent. Decor was nice. "

  • "On a beautiful Saturday with every tourist in NYC converging on Times Square, Re Sette on West 45th St. offered a cozy, calming respite. The service is attentive and down-to-earth. You never feel rushed but you do get out on time for a show. The food ranges from perfectly decent to very good Italian, taken from a range of Southern and Sicilian dishes. Prices are moderate ($20-$30 entrees) and most theaters are a 10 minute walk away. Great proximity to Bryant Park and Fifth Avenue. Nice little bar up front. Dress is neatly casual (not slobby)."

  • "i had used groupon and the deal was 2 dinners .appetizer.and two house wines. i had not been told when waiter asked what wine i would like that i would b charged $29 for the wine. i should have been told instead of asked what wine i wanted.i was surprised i had a choice when he asked. he should just bring the wine that was part of the deal to the table. very miss leading."

  • "Found them on Groupon, and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. The food was delicious and the service very attentive. The manager even offered a complimentary glass of Grappa at the end of the meal. I will definitely go there again."

  • "We took our soon to be wed son and fiance to Re Sette along with her parents the night before the wedding. Since we are from out of town we relied upon online reviews for our retaurant choice. The food and ambience were very good and the wait staff was pleasant and prompt. We enjoyed the experience very much and our son and now daughter in law were thrilled."

  • "Tasty italian cuisine, unfortunately staff seems too be bothered by the presence of customers. Visited on a Saturday night, perhaps they are less rushed on week days? Picked the place for the chicken limoncello from the internet menu, but was not available anymore, had been taken off the menu. Overall a good place to eat but would not visit again."

  • "Charming restaurant with great service. Food is very good but nothing spectacular. Definitely worth a try if you can't decide where to go. "

  • "Came for lunch with family that was visiting me at work for the first time. The food was excellent, we all ordered our own meals but ended up sharing because it was all so delicious. We ate the pepperoni pizza, lobster ravioli, filet mignon, and resette burger.. all great picks. My only complaint was the service. Being on my lunch break, I found it to be a little slow (we had to flag down our waiter after sitting at least 15 minutes so we can order) and felt like we were always searching for someone to help us. I would definitely come again, but not while on a time crunch."

  • "My husband and I have been to this restuarant twice now both times with friends and we have very much enjoyed our meals. Nice Italian Restaurant perfect if going to the theatre district, short walk to the shows, white table cloth restaurant, great food, good wine and waiters are very friendly and helpful. Service was also good, no complaints!!"
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "I was expecting flavorful italian food. The food was mediocre at best. I had the fettucini with shrimp and scallops while my boyfriend had the ravioli. Both dishes were bland, tasteless, and boring. Would not recommend."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "The service was spectacular. Two people in our party had the spicy seafood special, very good. Another person had the chicken special with mozzarella and mushrooms, very good. I had the pork chop on the bone of the menu, unfortunately I didn't not pay attention to the whole description but it was breaded--milanese style--I ate it all but would never order it again. For appetizers we had the portobello mushroom, calamari, beet/goat salad and all were very good. And I close with the fact that the service was spectacular. It is worth a visit but it is not for foodies."

  • "Went to Re Sette in NYC with a Groupon. The food was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It is a little off the beaten path, but that wasn't a bad thing considering the mobs of people around Time Square during the Easter break!"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Re Sette is a fine restaurant. We ate there on a Groupon. The food was excellent, but we are not convinced that without the discount it would be a good value. The full price for dinner for four (2 appetizers, 4 entrees, and 4 glasses of wine) came to $190. While each of the entrees were substantial, there are many other restaurants in the area where one can eat as well for considerably less."

  • "We had dinner there at 5:30 for a 7:30 curtain . It was nice to be away from the crowds and traffic in the theater district, but we were in short walking distance. We were seated promptly in the upstairs dining room. It was small but comfortable . Our table of five thoroughly enjoyed the food. My daughter and I had the fish special- it was worth the price. We will certainly go back to Re Sette again!!"

  • "First let me say that the staff was very friendly which went a long way. However the food was just mediocre, not bad, not really good and the service was not too attentive. This is NYC where the bar is really high and most restaurants live up to that but this one kinda failed that bar."

  • "The pictures of this restaurant do not do it justice. Very intimate and perfect for pre-theater. The food was wonderful and I have been there many times. The main courses are all great and nicely served with vegies and potatoes -- not just a piece of meat on a plate like so many other restaurants. This visit my date and I ordered the same pasta dish -- the lobster ravioli served with shrimp -- and the waiter suggested we order one lobster ravioli and one seafood fettuccini and share. He was right -- the kitchen split the very generous order of the seafood fettuccini filled with scallops and shrimp and then served the lobster ravioli. Both were superb. Our starter was a very nicely prepared fried calamari."

  • "This was an amazing experience. The restaurant was beautiful and the ambiance was great. The only complaint was that it got really crowded as our meal continued. My partner and I were wedged between the cash register station to our right and a busy party of four to our left. The wait staff and service was impeccable. They made sure we were well taken care of. The food came promptly and was absolutely delicious. We came starving, but the portions were so big we had to take some home to finish later. I am glad we discovered this place. Our dinner was wonderful!"

  • "Came using our groupon for 2 & it was a great deal! Everything we tried, including the house wine, was very enjoyable. For an Italian restaurant the filet was delicious & cooked perfectly! The only problem was that the restaurant is rather narrow so there are a lot of tables that are right on top of each other. It was very difficult to have a conversation as we were sandwiched between 2 other tables that were very loud & distracting. I would recommend this to others, but not sure I would go back."
