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

- ImpeccableNYCRunnerBeanVIPDined on 11/19/2014Service, food, atmosphere all A+. Service very efficient without being obtrusive.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food, Great ServiceLauraVIPDined on 11/12/2014I have been to Re Sette on my last 3 business trips to NYC. I have had the exact same thing each time. The Colorita salad (Argula, radicchio, endive, and parmigiana cheese shavings) and Ravioli Con Mela (pear and ricotta cheese with proscuitto, roasted pistaccio, in a cream sauce) both are outstanding! They make their own Mozzarella, too. I like this restaurant so much the last time I went I took 3 colleagues, including my boss and her boss. We all had a wonderful meal. Also, Eric and Mark are outstanding servers. They make great suggestions and are very attentive. The location is great as it's near the theatre district. Re Sette will continue to be a restaurant I look forward to returning to on a regular basis - and I will branch out and try other items on their menu - my colleagues loved the snapper and veal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- FabulousCnm19Dined on 11/2/2014From the service to the wine and finally the main dish it was by far one of the best meals I have ever had. We had the pumpkin ravioli and it was absolutely delicious. The decor and overall atmosphere is impressive as well. I will definitely return whenever I'm in NYC.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent food at a good priceOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 11/1/2014This was our third trip to NYC and third time at ReSette - it was busy due to the NYC marathon but the food was hot (which is very important to me). Our party of four all raved about their meals. Entree prices are reasonable, especially for Midtown Manhattan. We'll be back!!!!Special Features:
- SURPRISE SURPRISEMADYMVIPDined on 10/30/2014We chose this restaurant because it was on 45th Street and we were going to the theater nearby. What a delightful surprise! For us anyway, obviously others knew about it, because it quickly filled up! The pastas, house made, were among the best we've ever tasted [including a class in Italy with a pasta chef!].... We'll absolutely be back!Special Features:
- Dependable ItaliandavectDined on 10/28/2014There are few dependable Italian restaurants around Grand Central. This is one. The food is good and the prices are good too for midtown NYC.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/22/2014Very yummy although pasta was a little salty. But I would still come back!Special Features:
- Wow!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/19/2014Had a wonderful experience here. Food was incredible. Filet and ravioli were out of this world. Everything was just tops. Highly recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Was OKSandyDined on 10/19/2014Ordered the pork chop on bone. Nowhere on the menu did it say it was breaded ( I am gluten intolerant) and it didn't say it was pounded so thin to a weiner schnitzel . Service and ambiance were great.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food, Bad AmbianceDanielleBDined on 10/10/2014I went to ReSette with my boyfriend for a special date. We absolutely LOVED the food. It was so delicious and the service was fantastic. The only complaint we had was that the tables were SO close to each other. We were very cramped and actually had to move our table just to let the people next to us out. We found it very awkward to talk across the table to each other because we were just so close to the people next to us. However, the food definitely made up for the awkwardness, it was fabulous!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tasty Tasty TastyLauraVIPDined on 10/7/2014The restaurant is set up in 2 sections. Seating behind the bar and then a separate dining room Both times I've gone to Re Sette, I've been a party of 1 and have been seated at a 2 top behind the bar. The service is great (I had the same server twice) He made great suggestions for both food and wine. The pasta was delicious. The serving size just right. I can't say enough about how good the food is and would highly suggest it. It's near the theater district so would work well if you are going to a show.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ITALIANDIVADined on 10/3/2014THE SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD. THE WAITERS WERE VERY ATTENTIVE AND NICE. THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS. WOULD DEFINITELY GO BACK.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing ItalianomNomDined on 10/2/2014Our party was seeking restaurants in midtown Manhattan with good vegetarian options, and this was one of a handful that came up on OpenTable. We chose "Italian" because it seemed like a safe bet, but our expectations were significantly exceeded. The food was amazing, both veggie and non-veggie options alike. Would definitely recommend to any lover of authentic Italian cuisine.Special Features:

- Grate PlaceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/15/2014Food was excellent and the menu was very nice with lots of good options. They prepared a dish thta was not exactly on the menu for me, as I preferred a fra diavolo sauce as opposed to an olive oil and garlic sauce. Very accommodating without any hassle. It was an excellent dish.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very dissatisfiedRhondaDined on 9/14/2014The food was lousy. My meal was salty. I sent it back. It came back tasteless and watery. The wait staff never checked in. I couldn't even get my water glass refilled. Don't go to this restaurant if you want a good meal and a nice time.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/13/2014Great and different pasta dish.....homemade ravioli with apple and pear and gargonzola cream sauce. Very good.Special Features:
- Good pre-theaterPatKDined on 9/10/2014Prix fixe was a bargain for NY. Excellent service, aware of the time and very nice selection. Coffee and a glass of wine included for a nice touch. The addition of a coffee bar at the entrance detracts and doesn't set a fine dining tone.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Jasminex3Dined on 9/7/2014The place was nice at first I was excited ate the complimentary bread with an amazing dip.. Had mussels. The first one was disgusting with a weird taste the rest were better but the first one turned my friends and I off. Then had the entrees I had the lobster ravioli it tasted okay..... UNTIL I FOUND A HAIR IN IT. Left as soon as I saw that it was done for me. CHECK PLEASE. Never again.
- An off night, this is not PeoriaOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 9/6/2014Eaten at ReSette 20 times in 10 years. Restaurants can have an off night. The staff was not professional. The restaurant was nearly empty at 5:30 on a Sat. Waiter did not time our courses properly. My wife abandoned the salad and began her entree. I finished my drink, for the remainder of the meal, no waiter was in sight. Only 3 tables were full. At the end of my meal the waiter asked if I wold like another drink. Too late it arrived. The busboy cleared without permission while my wife was eating, she didn't finish.. I asked for half and half with my coffee. Waiter took orders & delivered drinks to 2 other tables, bringing my half and half after my coffee was cold. Other staff around. After 10 years dining there, we will never return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing FoodCarandarDined on 9/5/2014I love going to Resette - one of my favorite local haunts. The preparation and presentation of our dinners was perfect. Always ask for the specials. The mushroom risotto was the best I ever had. The rack of lamb was perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious.Special Features:

- Great Food and Outstanding ServiceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/15/2014This is the fourth time I have been to Re Sette within the past six months and each time has been a wonderful experience. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and accomodating. The food is wonderful from the Calamari to the Tiramisu and everything in between. If I lived in the area this would be my go to place.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A nice placesidneymDined on 8/14/2014The food was very good and the service was equally good. I would be happy to return. I did think the quantity of wine by the glass was skimpy considering the price.Special Features:
- ReviewLuv2eatVIPDined on 8/11/2014The food was just ok. It smelled fantastic but the taste was not great. The service was not very good. From the waiter to the bar tender not being able to make a virgin drink. The hostess was very nice and accommodating.
- SuzanneVIPDined on 8/2/2014Cocktails were quite good (though it took quite a while for one guest to receive hers) and the food was excellent as were the dessert and coffee selections....we would definitively return.Special Features:
- Dont botherTEngalDined on 8/2/2014I wouldn't go back. This restaurant was nothing special and there are so many better restaurants in the neighborhood. They served me frozen potatoes and called them roasted?? UGH...
- Post Theatre DinnerPat1VIPDined on 7/31/2014We arrived after the theatre, less than an hour before closing time for the restaurant, but it was a lovely meal. Food was wonderful.Special Features:

- Delicious and promptTheatreGirlDined on 7/26/2014I had a Groupon for this restaurant and was thrilled with its location in the Theatre district. I thought we would be treated like second-class citizens but the service was prompt and courteous. Our waiter also had great recommendations and even helped us to maximize our Groupon as it was a deal for four and we were a party of three. The appetizers and entrees were delicious but we were too full to try any desserts! Great dining choice.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great Dinner!JLS1VIPDined on 7/14/2014My family and I really enjoyed ourselves on Monday night. The food (we all agreed) was delicious. The wine was terrific--and reasonably priced. We will return--frequently!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A favorite spotketnycDined on 7/3/2014This is my 3rd visit to Re Sette. This time I took my daughter for her birthday celebration. Great food, and outstanding service.
- I don't understand the bad reviews!amanda45VIPDined on 6/29/2014We 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!Special Features:
- Cozy Date Night SpotGr82eatVIPDined on 6/25/2014My 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good foodcatnycDined on 6/24/2014We 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.Special Features:
- FantasticOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 6/21/2014I 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Too loud!NYCBobVIPDined on 6/17/2014The 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.Special Features:
