We are heartbroken that Annisa is closing soon, and had to get in for one last meal. Everything was impeccable as always. Anita Lo & staff: thank you for providing such a gem to the neighborhood and NYC food scene for so many years. You will be missed!
High prices (even with service included) and small portions, not a good combination.
Creative, delicious and unique! Highly recommend. The best dish I had was the soup dumpling and fois gras - simply delish!
Our favorite restaurant. We are very, very sorry it's closing. We have such wonderful memories eating here, and this final meal was superb, maybe the best yet.
Wonderful restaurant in every respect -- food, ambience, service. You're made to feel welcome and warmly taken care of without being fawned over. The food is extraordinary.
Inventive and precisely prepared food and a comfortable, laid back, small restaurant ambience. Best quality/ price ratio among the top flight NYC restaurants
Absolutely wonderful experience. We had a cocktail to start and it was beautifully made. We then had the 7 course tasting menu and matched wines. Every dish was delicious and the wines chosen worked perfectly. Lovely service, the servers were friendly and explained each dish clearly and concisely. We really loved everything about our dinner!
Had a wonderful time, yet again. I'll be sad to see this play close.
It was my dad's birthday. It's his favorite restaurant in NYC and he's sad that it'll close soon.
The restaurant has a good atmosphere, you can hear yourselves speak and the dining room is nicely decorated. Unfortunately however, the service whilst polite and friendly, was so,so slow. We waited over 90 minutes before our main course was served, and it had to be chased by us. And to be frank, the food wasn't worth waiting for.. Each of our seven friends remarked that their meal was not all that good and certainly our evening was not worth the $1000 bill... Sorry, can maybe see why you will be closing down...
The food at Annisa is miticulously presented and is delightful ! I love everything about Annisa. It's one , if not, my favorite place to go for great dining. Cheers!
Wanted to check this out before it closed. I'm afraid I can't recommend it. While the dishes were creatively conceived, they fell far short on execution. The famous foie gras soup dumplings were dry, dense and still hard to eat, and the pork-belly tower was underseasoned and a mess on the plate. Solid service, but weird wine program, probably as they try to deplete their cellar before shuttering. Would be curious to try the chef's food again someplace else, but you can tell Annisa is already circling the drain.
Outstanding tasting menu. Everything was delicious. The portions were extremely generous for a tasting menu, we normally expect to receive literal tastes of most courses, but we had to fight to the finish. Everything was outstanding. For goodness sake do not fill up on the bread given pre-meal, no matter how good it is.
Great presentation hate to see them go. Thanks for the memories hope you will open elsewhere.
This was my second time at Annisa. The first time I came for Mother's Day and had an amazing experience. This time I brought my family for a birthday dinner but was unfortunately very disappointed with the service. I understand the gratuity is included in the price but the service should still be outstanding. My waitress was unfriendly, rude, and very cold. She didn't smile once and didn't go over the menu at all. When the food came she didnt introduce any of the dishes. I also had to keep asking her for water and she took forever to take our order. She also had to reached over the table to pour water and pushed the table into my aunt. For an elegant place like Annisa the service definitely ruined the experience for everyone.
