Pleasant surpriseI truly loved this restaurant. The servers were very attentive, the food was wonderful true Italian and much enjoyed. I will definitely come back on our next trip to NYC and I highly recommend that those reading this look at the menu to see for yourself! This is a place for a romantic dinner and yet it is open and fun for those that wish for a place that has some energy, thus 4 stars versus 5. It all depends on what you are looking for. I could almost give it 5 stars6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat findWe stay at The London when in NYC and have walked by Remi several times. It always looked good but we had never tried it until this last trip. It was terrific! We will definitely be back. The service was friendly and not overbearing. The food was so tasty. We had the burrata, arugula & nectarine salad to start. My husband had the pasta bolognese & I had the agnolotti with truffles. YUM! all so good!! The complimentary bread was also very good as was the olive oil served with it. For dessert we had the ricotta cake with cherries. It was warm with a oozy center & to die for! Also, I have BIG criteria on a good restaurant - it's the ice tea. Freshly brewed, properly, is not always easy and Remi has delicious ice tea.
Go here!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing service and foodEverytime I'm in the city I have to stop at least for a drink and an appetizer at this place. I dont only love the atmosphere but also the food is delicious and the service is outstanding. The moment I started to plan my wedding I thought of the Rialto Room (in the back of the restaurant) as my #1 option, and now I am excited to find out that my reception will be done at such a beautiful place, definitively I am convienced that my event will run smoothly and just as I plan thanks to the help of the General Manager and his amazing staff.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. Waiter serviceExcellent food. Waiter service a little slow and there were not many customers.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHad been to Remi many timesHad been to Remi many times for lunch. Menu selections are numerous and the food is always of high quality. It is solidly in my lunch venue rotation.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat date restaurantExcellent food - the ricotta/spinach ravioli and scallops risotto were prepared perfectly
Great service - my date and I shared the two dishes. We asked the waiter to split them, but he went a step beyond. Each was presented, in sequence, mid-table with separate plates for each of us to allow sharing (also, a new plate and dinnerware for each entree).
Quiet ambiance - great for conversation on a first date (the great dining companion didn't hurt).
We didn't sit outside, but the outdoor seating area looked comfortable.
The vibe was upscale, and we dressed up (suit and tie for me). I didn't feel overdressed, but a sport coat and jeans would probably have fit in, too.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSensitive waiters and yummy foodI have been eating at Remi since the 1980s, when I worked at Town & Country.
Now I'm there far less often, but still pick it for the food, decor and a certain comfort I feel about my history there.
The recent dinner, among best friends, was to plan a memorial service, so it took a long time before we got to the business of ordering the food. The waiter could not have been more sensitive. Drinks came and went and then, finally, we ate, famished, happy.
As always, it was very good (except for the sardine appetizer).
A delicate, happy-sad evening, but we were perfectly served and well treated.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a Gem!My initial impression when entering was how could they possibly run a restaurant in this small space? But the environment proved to be intimate and relaxing. The wait staft was superb and the food was out of this world.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Restaurant in Midtown NYThis was the first time we ate at Remi. It was right next door to the Hilton at 53rd St. so it was very convenient since we were staying there. The ambiance was great. Staff from the young woman who greated us at the door to the wait staff were professional and courteous. Food was excellent and presented nicely. Great find in a great area in New York.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDown the BlockThis is a fantastic restaurant in midtown. The food is prepared with such care & always comes out perfectly.

Pretty setting, civilized space between tables makes conversation possible, convenient location, good menu choices and delicious food. We had a low key and helpful waiter who made our out-of-town guests particularly pleased with our selection of REMI.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian with some polishThis was a nice restaurant off the main bustling streets of New York. By no means was it red-checkered tablecloth but the food was true to the spirit of regional Italian cooking. The dishes were balanced and thoughtful and sizes were perfect for sharing. Some ingredients might not have been in the prime of season but the chef's delicate touch made everything quite tasty.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness DinnerI took two clients to Remi for dinner.

My friend had the salmon dish which was very bland and unfortunately, she had a glass of Chardonnay that was likely old, and not good at all. It was replaced however. Looking forward to Remi each visit I was sorry her experience was not as good as mine. It's a lovely restaurant with several special occasions being celebrated!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways SolidEnjoyed Remi again. Solid choice for mid town west.

Although this was a Thurs. during Restaurant Week and the restaurant was busy, we found the service and food to be excellent. I ordered from the Prix Fixe menu: tasty polenta with wild mushroom appetizer, salmon served with sauteed escarole, tiramisu. My husband ordered from the regular menu: a generous portion of very good spinach salad with pecorino cheese and raw mushrooms. The waiter complied in serving the dressing on the side. As entree, the signature Remi spaghetti with spicy red peppers had more sweet peppers than hot peppers, but it was still good. We also enjoyed the red wine and hot coffee. I would highly recommend Remi.1/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a lovely restaurant.This is a lovely restaurant. Was really nice that we could take advantage of restaurant week prices. Just the right amount of food. Is a place I would look to revisit.1/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA taste of Venice in the middleA taste of Venice in the middle of Manhattan A good place for an outdoor lunch on a summer day.
