Almayass offers a distinguished culinary experience which consists of the infusion of authentic Lebanese cuisine with the exotic flavors of traditional Armenian dishes, to make for a very unique, one-of-a-kind type Mediterranean dining experience.

Our story began in Beirut in 1996 by the Alexandrian family, third generation Armenians, who had a passion to share and serve their culinary delights. The restaurant has since been featured in NY Times, New York Magazine, Food & Wine Magazine, LA Times and the Michelin Guide as a ‘must go’ destination for an Armenian-Lebanese dining experience.

Great mixed meat plate, but pricey. The service and ambiance were perfect, but I couldn't hear anything from across the table as it was so loud.

Booked 7:30 reservation. Restaurant was supposed to be open until 10:30 (could even book a 10pm reservation). By 9:30pm they stopped serving drinks and began closing the restaurant, rushing us out. Had to go across the street to Cosme to get dessert and a drink at 9:30.

Food was good though.

Absolutely the best Armenian food anywhere on the East Coast! Authentic, fresh, well made, excellent ingredients, very well prepared. Excellent service. Full menu. Wonderful choices at bar. only thing is it is VERY expensive. For two people having a normal dinner, it was over $210.

Came here with a large party for dinner on Saturday. It was quiet starting out, but got louder as it got later. The service was attentive and had recommendations, which was great since it was our first time. A couple of our orders were messed up, but the server took responsibility and handled it gracefully. Overall, I'm pleased with the service. The food was amazing, we ordered 6 appetizers and hummus and shared them. We also split an entree and dessert between two and it was the perfect amount of food. It's a bit pricey for me, but I would definitely come back for special occasions!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the world -- not merely in Manhattan. It has spectacular Armenian cuisine, beautiful ambiance, a great wine list and bar, and the nicest people on the planet seem to work there. I love bringing friends and business associates to Almayass and introducing them to the place. Also? It was where I wrote the opening to my novel, THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT.

Almayass grabbed us as soon as we walked in the door. It's charming and artsy and rustic and totally inviting. Our server greeted us with a series of recommendations and we took most of them. It was a great choice - the food was uniformly delicious.

Almyass is always a great treat. I have been there several times, and the food and service is consistently outstanding. The food is very fresh, beautifully prepared, with both classic dishes and wide variety. The service is gracious and friendly without any touch of being overbearing. The ambience is very enjoyable and energetic without being overly loud and unpleasant. I highly recommend it.

Excellent food BUT when the waiter keeps kicking my chair every time he is in the vicinity of our table... and the people at the table behind me keep knocking at my chair every time someone needs to get up... and I can not hear a word that is said by my friends because of the incredible noise level... what is the purpose of good food? This is no longer a place to visit on busy week-end nights. When I miss their excellent food, I will visit them during a weekday for lunch. A pity...

I love this restaurant. I would say it's the Best Armenian restaurant in NYC but it's the only one. However, it offers an authentic Armenian cuisine. I'm Armenian, so I know. Every time I've gone here, food, cocktails and red wine are always consistently amazing. The service is very pleasant. I have had my birthday here twice. The staff is great with large groups as well.
