    Sadly the neighborhood lost Cafe Falai to be replaced by an ordinary, run of the mill restaurant that one could find anywhere in NY. The food is uninspired and the decor has been done.

    This is my regular lunch place and my favorite table is always ready. Pasta dishes are delicious and well prepared. They can be made gluten free. My favorite appetizers are salmon and yellowtail tartares along with pulpo ie. octopus appetizer. They are always delicious. Octopus used to be salty but I complained and the issue has been fixed. Coffee service is superior. Breakfast is also available with abundant selection of hot dishes and Italian pastries. Heaven! Service is warm, friendly and speedy. I'm usually served by Irene, who is a warm, sweet Italian lady. This restaurant has a UES branch with stuffy, upscale clientele. I prefer the more relaxed, down to earth Soho vibe.

    Some business colleagues and I had a business lunch there, the ambiance is nice, fresh and uncomplicated. Service was good, although when they got busy we had to wait for the waiter to help us. Food is good, interesting flavors, combinations and options, however the portions are small for the price, I think we all stayed hungry after lunch... The waiter was very nice and accommodating.

    I have been going to St Ambroeus for so many years, either uptown on Madison Ave, West Village or Southampton, and have always loved it. I am so happy that it is now in my neighborhood of Soho. The food is always great, and the service is beyond reproach! Thank you SA.

    Visiting NYC for the weekend. Made reservations for Sunday brunch based on a recommendation from a local friend. Was not disappointed. The coffees were elegantly served, Mimosa was excellent. Eggs Benedict was close to the best I've ever had. The server was friendly and gladly accommodated us with Gluten free bread. The decor was modern and cute, only comment would be the not so comfortable couch seats. We actually asked to switch tables and were easily accommodated. I would happily recommend and return.

    Some of the chairs are fancy designer's stuff. Obviously the designer did not seat for one hour on them, or he or she would have realized how bad the chairs are... Food is really excellent, service is top notch, italian wines for a reasonable price, great ambiance and low noise which is a very precious thing in NYC these days. Change the chairs and you get a 5 stars !!!

    Great food, gorgeous interior, & possibly the best waitress in nadiia that we've had in YEARS. I had the branzino: excellent, if a bit on the smallish side. Starter was a fantastic grilled zuchinni & mozzarella crostini. nice to taste a change from the typical tomato & mozz combo. Sides: Brussels sprouts & pancetta (tasty!) and the roasted cauliflower w/ mustard (good, but a bit over-sour). My fiancée had the pappardelle special w/ ceci beans & english peas in a white sauce...exceptional. Drinks: a tasty glass of rose for her. Don Julio chilled, with fresh lime and a peroni on the side for me. Dessert: some of the best tiramisu I've ever had & a decadent chocolate cake. Nadiia our server was fantastic. Will definitely be back!

    I was in NYC with my three good friends celebrating our 40th birthdays - I called the restaurant two days prior letting them know we were celebrating and asked for a corner table - when we arrived, they put us in between the two only other groups in the restaurant - I told them we had called and requests a corner table, they said they could not accommodate - I also told them we were celebrating (again). The meal was OK and the service was random. At the end of the meal, we ordered desserts, not only did they not do ANYTHING special, they just ignored us after dropping them off and then just brought the check. My advice, with the amount of amazing places in NYC....Don't bother!

    I often went to go to the UES Sant Ambroeus when I lived in NY, so we decided to try this one. They are known for their very good Italian kitchen, but I had never tried the gluten free pasta before, which I was really impressed with - it was even al dente. It was a weeknight, but the (hugely famous artist) JR sat at the table next to us, and across the way were Olivia Palermo and Johannes, so I guess that says everything about this being a hotspot, understated as it is. The waiter accidentally bumped our table and caused a crash of water glasses (no one was hurt), so the kitchen sent us a huge plate of tarts and other sweeties on the house. Overall it was great...maître d and staff were all so friendly. Perfect NY evening.

    I was a bit disappointed in the Soho location. It was less friendly than the location in the West Village. With a dining room open of seats, and I had a reservation, I was seated in the bar area at a table near the bathroom - not ideal when I had called ahead to share I would be there for a business meeting. The service was Ok but nothing special and overall the experience was completely bland.

    We love the new S.A. Bigger than the West Village, but the same food quality. I had their famous centocolori salad and was as tasty as it is in the other branches, the salmon was great and my husband enjoyed his veal. The fact that they make their soups with only vegetable stock is great and vegetarian friendly. The staff is the best, specially Julia...she is the most professional manager we've ever met...always attentive and checking out that every single table got great service. This is the best restaurant in Soho.
