Tre Otto reviews from OpenTable diners

    Dined on 7/24/2013
    Went to meet a client for lunch. Experienced a longer than typical wait. The wait staff had some trouble communicating, as English possibly wasn't their native tongue. When the food came out, the portions were rather small, but the food was seasoned good. The atmosphere was rather dark and rustic. I'm not sure that I would return, but overall my experience was mediocre at best.

    Tre Otto gave us everything we wanted. The staff was super-pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was delicious. It's a favorite of a friend of mine, but it was my first time. I can definitely see why it's a neighborhood go-to spot.

    This is a Carnegie Hill gem that is worth traveling to. I had a lovely dinner there -- everything was quite good: wine list, food and service. Prices are reasonable which is very nice for that neighborhood. They make pasta ala Norma very well > and I know about this dish as I learned to make it while taking cooking class in Sicily. I look forward to going back!

    Husband didn't get wine. When reminded, and after food was already served, no one brought it. Waiter spent five to ten minutes allowing another couple to taste wines, and only after that brought wine. Also the so-called wild mushrooms tasted like they came out of a can.

    I know the menu by heart & was upset that I could not get lasagna at lunch. How can you say its only a dinner item. The food is suppose to be fresh so why should I have to wait 2 more hours for dinner. Bad customer service. The food is just ok. The pasta at island is much better

    The 2 pastas we tried were excellent. If not for the pasta, the experience would have been sub-par. My daughter's salmon was dry and overcooked. The artichoke and calimari appetizers were mediocre. Desert was merely acceptable. The "garden" could use a bit more greenery - it is suprisingly unattractive. The wine list was adequate. Thank goodness for the excellent pasta ragout!

    We had previously eaten at Tre Otto and had a good meal and satisfying experience, but this time it disappointed.Most of the food was just okay, nothing special at all. But the Rigatoni alla Norma was not good, much to tomatoey and very little eggplant. The spaghetti ragu was a little better but not much, a bit on the bland side.The salmon en croute was reported to be average and the pizza with broccoli rabe a little better than that.Service was very slow and we had to keep asking the waiter for drink refills (none were offered or solicited) which he seemed only to be able to manage one at a time.The bill seemed on the high side ($195, incl tip for 4 people with one shared appetizer and no alcohol), but maybe I'm just not used to NY prices.

    great for the neighborhood - charming server, good menu choices and food fresh and tasty. just too too cramped and small - felt like we were eating in a hallway with waiters and bussers constantly at our backs - especially carrying plates, trays, etc. would be great if they could have bigger space!

  • Time for a tune-up

    Dined on 4/27/2013
    I've been eating here since Tre Otto first opened, and while it is a little gem in the neighborhood, their service and their plating needs a little tune-up. We sat in the back "garden" (which could use a little added greenery, like potted trees along the outside perimeter maybe?) and while out server was great when we first sat down, as soon as we received our food, he disappeared until it was check time. He didn't check-in to see if we liked our appetizers, and when when our main courses arrived, there was no check-in to see if we wanted fresh pepper or cheese on our pasta. The kitchen should take note that their entree plating left a little to be desired. The pasta looked thrown onto our plates & not really finessed.

    terrific italian place - the welcome is as warm as the pasta. eneough choices to keep everyone happy - salads, pizza, pasta, meat and fish dishes - specials are all interesting. standout dishes were the burrata, arugula salad, the lasagna, and the pizzas. wines are reasonably priced (with a focus on italian wines). desserts were all crazy good.

    Three of us were there for lunch. The Margherita pizza was very good. The seafood salad was fresh and well presented. The meatballs did not meet my expectations and the fresh mozzarella was a bit runny. Overall, a good lunch and we plan to go back.

    Front of restaurant is small; tables are tiny and you practically need a shoehorn to fit in if the tables on either side are occupied. The garden, which is enclosed in the winter, is more spacious, although shorter on atmosphere. We went only because our favorite neighborhood places were booked, and while the food was all right (other than the bread, which was on the stale side), we will not be returning.

    I had to ask for menus after sitting at my table for at least 5 min, the non-advertised BYOB cork fee is a surprising $25, never saw a server unless they were delivering our food or the bill, which I had to take to them to run my card after again waiting for 5-10 minutes. The food was actually pretty good, but the service killed the experience. I would like to believe that it was just an isolated mishap, but with the options of restaurants available, i am not willing to give them a second chance to prove my theory.

    Very ordinary and overpriced for what you get. Ordered the salmon for entree and it was absolutely indelible. First off it had a fishy taste and it seemed like it was precooked a couple of days before and reheated. Secondly it was completely dry and tough. Better off eating at home.

    Decor and ambience are welcoming and attractive. Food was fair but two main courses did not match the menu description. A substitution was made by the kitchen without checking first that this was acceptable to the diner. Response from the server over the miscommunication was, " we will not charge you for the wrong dish that we had to throw away" The acceptable replacement main course arrived after the other diners at the table had finished eating. Resolving the error did not appear to be a priority for the kitchen. The desserts were delicious.

    Have been there many times - often bring people who have never been to the restaurant, as we did this time. Asked to be seated in heated, enclosed garden area. Waiters were nowhere to be found - slow on everything, including getting a check. Bad leak in dining area from pouring rain which they were trying to clean up while we were eating. Found out as we were leaving that there was also a leak where we were sitting - handbags on floor all wet. Mentioned to man (manager?) at front of house as we left - didn't seem too interested. Food is always very good, service is generally adequate. Disappointing.

    Love a great neighborhood gem and food here is EXCELLENT. great wines. However, they could stand to have more waitstaff as its slow! When we asked for a few more minutes to make menu choices the waiter dosnt come back for 15+ and required us to summons him many times. He then comments by saying "we'll you did ask for more time". Food worth it but only if leasurly evening is in order.
