Amazing service. They were so kind. Food was amazing. We will def go back. It was lunch and right before the drama happening with the virus so we were like only people there. But it was a great place and highly recommend. Drinks and food were awesome. The dessert (the bird egg one). So good.
Wished the food was better. Service was excellent. The wagyu with the black truffle supplement was cooked to perfection!
Aquavit is our favorite restaurant to visit when we’re in New York. We were excited to experience the recent remodel, and we weren’t disappointed. It is a great dining experience!
Absolutely outstanding. A perfect meal start to finish. Thank you.
It was my second time visiting . Very satisfying as always .
Looked for a reservation at 6:15 on Open Table and the site said nothing was available after 5:45. So we made the 5:45 reservation, which was a burden on us. We were there until almost 7:45 and only two table were occupied the whole time we were there. Something is wrong with this.
Excellent food, flawless service, serene atmosphere. Perfect lunch.
Food and ambiance was excellent. Really enjoyed the conversation with beverage director or wine sommelier he took care of us greatly.
Birds nest dessert was the best, everything else was just okay (very small portions)
Everything is excellent
Service used to be better
It was a great evening , spending a special time with my sister to celebrate pre Christmas dinner! Thank you. CHEF EMMA and the team. Everything is spectacular!
was much better before renovation - everything: crowd, food, decor, ambiance
The new space is beautiful and the food was fantastic. One of my best meals ever. The server was well trained and knowledgeable about the menu and made excellent recommendations. I can't wait to go back.
We had an outstanding night at Aquavit. All the dishes were good and perhaps three of them were quite memorable. Service was impeccable.
It was a special occasion so well worth the money. I really enjoyed it. I wish I could do it more often!
Fortunate that we were able to sneak in before the remodeling. Wonderful food ambiance wine selection and variety of flavors and food.
Great Restaurant. We dined at several nice places on our trip and this was our favorite. Great food.
We go to this restaurant frequently and the food does not disappoint. Usually the service is exemplary. Unfortunately this time we felt the service was not at the caliber of this type of restaurant. The first person who met us at the table was aloof and they she left us sitting for an inorinate amount of time. There seemed to be a lag between all the courses. We will always come back because the food is the best, but we were surprised at the usual great service as being so off
Very good food. Especially the duck. Very disappointing service. We ordered wine to have with the entree. Didn’t come until dessert was served.
The team at Aquavit was at their best. We went for the occasion of a law school graduation and everyone congratulated the graduate like friends and family. We marveled at the choreography as each beautifully crafted dish touched down on the table at exactly the same moment. We had the chef's tasting menu and the food was exquisite. We were treated to exotic opening "snacks" and multiple sweet treats at the end. There was a take home bag to extend the experience to breakfast the next day. This high level of dining has an equally high price tag but to mark our special occasion this memorable experience was worth it.
We went to celebrate our son's 16th birthday. The food was delicous and the in-between courses were also terrific. The food was interesting in the combination of favors and always prepared perfectly. While dessert was included in our pre-fixe menu, they also arranged for a cupcake with a candle for our son even without our asking for it. Then they also gave each of us a goody bag with another piece of cake to bring home. Service was excellent, very attentive and yet not over-bearing. This was a memorable meal for us because it was such an enjoyable experience.
Can’t wait to see the new remodel
Amazing experience. Food was creative and tasty. Everything was great. People, etc. just be sure to get the birds nest for desert
Delicious food, great service, very good wine list. The perfect place to get introduced to Swedish haute cuisine.
Haven't been here in about 5 years and was thrilled that it hasn't skipped a beat and is as delicious and innovative as ever. Service from beginning to end was awesome--one might expect very formal, stuffy service, but our waitstaff was so much fun, joked around with us, and was still expert at everything they suggested and executed. The matjes herring, fois gras and egg starters were all excellent--perfect seasoning and hit every note. The duck was perfectly rendered, crunchy, juicy with black garlic--sheer perfection. Citrus dessert was refreshing and beautiful. Chocolate dessert was a little grainy but the flavors and textures were excellent. We had the most fun with all of the post-dessert desserts--a tasty tray of bit sized morsels that were to die for. The flight of flavored aquavit's were yummy-blueberry, honey crisp, fig & cardamon. Great wine list and good suggestions from Sommelier. LOVE this place
Outstanding fine dining restaurant. Food is delicious and the chef uses high quality ingredients creatively. Good presentation and service.
Wonderful & perfect from starters to desserts.
The chef's seasonal menu was full of imaginative, delicious surprises.
Amazing meal and service
Interesting selection of food
Very accommodating with food allergies
Thank you so much for being such a great experience for my in-laws. They had the “most incredible dining experience and were blown away. Thanks!
Excellent food, knowledgeable service by caring people with a full grasp of the wines and Liquers they serve.
I was impressed how creative the dishes were based on a very limited ingredient selection that the Scandinavian cruise offers.
We did the chefs tasting menu and it was great! The service was excellent! Very attentive. The sommelier was very nice and sensitive to our likes and dislikes. The wine he recommended was perfect. Most I the courses were served with an addition poured at the table And all were well described. My daughter has a scallop sensitivity so they substituted a course for her . The majority of the courses were fish/seafood related except the last two which were squab And the dessert courses. It was a very nice meal!
Amazing. Creative beautiful food. Warm and attentive service. One of the best restaurants in nyc.
I've been coming here for decades and it never fails. Love Aquavit, especially the smorgasbord when they do it and the crayfish festival. This is a luxurious, fairly quiet spot and ideal for when you are in midtown and want a gourmet meal.
From the champagne we started with to the Aquavit that we ended with, it was impeccable. The nordic inspired cuisine was a completely new exploration for myself and my partner and we loved every last bite. The reserved wine pairings were uncanny! It was unique, unexpected, and down right cool. Best wine pairings I have ever had.
Chef's tasting menu will fill you up by end, but it is the route to go undoubtedely!!!
Thanks for the amazing time Aquavit!
Superb Christmas menu
GREAT Christmas Smorgasbord!! Everything was delicious. The staff and manager were super informative and very friendly. We will not be waiting until next Christmas to return. Do yourself a favor to experience wonderful Scandinavian food, go this year.
