Loved our mail. Basil popsicles - unbelievable! Three of us did full tasting plus two of us did reserve wine pairing. Wonderful meal.
The service was outstanding. The food was delicious. I can’t complain anything at all! Awesome meal!
We celebrated our wedding anniversary with some friends of our. One of the best meal we have had in a long time! So innovative, perfectly sized, served by an excellent and knowledgeable staff! Why haven’t we celebrated here before?
One of the best restaurants in NYC. Always a treat to have dinner here.
Great food and team. Thanks for making my parents 45th Anniversary celebration a great one!
Gold standard. A perfect pitch on every level. Knowledgeable, articulate and attentive staff serving food that prompts oohs and aahs at every fork and spoonful. Tell the warden that this is where I will take my last supper.
Loved this place - great service and excellent food and ambience. The sommeliers know their stuff very well. Must visit!
The wait staff and food were all excellent.
Wedding anniversary celebration. Greeted with a glass of champagne, nice touch. Food and pared wines excellent.
Ambience? Surroundings somewhat dull, could do with some colour, interesting detailing, just a tad bland.
Service first class, staff pleasant and very knowledgeable.
SO GOOD 👍🏾 GREAT SERVICE 👅🤗🍷
We brought a friend to celebrate her birthday. The staff was warm and friendly, extraordinarily knowledgeable about the food and wine, and we were treated with respect and appreciation.
Food was amazing. However, the waiter promised to get us a copy of the tasting menu we had on that day, but eventually forgot about it. Also, I had to pull my own chair.
Outstanding but at a high price
We had a fantastic experience at Aquavit. Their attention to detail and creative menu thoroughly impressed us. It was a culinary experience we won't soon forget!
Impeccable service with outstanding food! Staff was friendly & extremely knowledgeable. A NYC classic that never disappoints
This was a very odd lunch - not in terms of the food, but the service. The fixed price lunch menu is very nice. The herring assortment for a first course is excellent. My two friends were happy with their meal. Service was thoughtful until the server accidentally spilled a glass of water between courses - it made quite a mess of part of the table and me. Accidents can happen. It was only water, so my clothing wasn't ruined. The issue was how ineffectual he was. There were many empty tables. The server could have simply moved our table to another table. Failing that, he could have grabbed napkins from adjoining tables to sop up the dripping water and sent a busperson for more. Instead he went away to get a napkin while the water dripped. I took napkins myself while he was gone to cope with the drips. I think when he came back he returned with a single napkin, which was not going to do much. Then, at the end of the meal, we were all charged full price. I was very surprised. Any reasonable restaurant would have written off at least part of my meal. I paid without demur. I'm still wondering about what the restaurant could possibly have been thinking.
Fair price for a good good and service. Music a litle bit loud.
Loved our experience. We’ll definitely be back!
Each course impeccable. Great service. Highly recommend.
it was great experience! service food taste all good!
The food was outstanding and the service impeccable. A very enjoyable experience!
Exquisite albeit somewhat limited menu options. Between-course amuses-bouche a delight in themselves. Duck breast perfectly cooked with crisp edges and pink interiors. Service impeccable. Prices very high but worth. It fora special occasion.
Wonderful meal and enjoyable setting. We had the seasonal menu and loved everything. A wide wine selection as well.
Simply the best dining experience we’ve enjoyed.
Everything was fantástico. The Reserve sine pairing, Mamés the difference!
Excellent food, but that’s about it. Never had such a crappy service and unfriendly waiters. Definitely not worth 2 stars in the Guide Michelin.
Food is great both in terms of creativity and taste, but the service needs to be improved.
Great Service and Food
I got overcharged 1600 dollars and several courses were late. Food was good but not worth the hassle.
A disappointing experience at Aquavit. Had high expectations after an excellent dinner in Spring last year but the set course menu was rather unimaginative and completely lacked the stunning visual presentation we had enjoyed the previous time. It was a pleasant meal with well executed service, but completely lacked the “wow” factor - yet the price was still up there.
I do not see how Aquavit will retain its Michelin 2 star rating based on this performance. I am wondering if there have been changes in the kitchen. Based on this experience and price/performance we will certainly not return.
I cannot imagine a better meal. We chose the Chef's selection. Multiple courses each one inspiring and delicious. The waitstaff are attentive but not intrusive. The wine selection was extensive and excellent. The place to go for an unforgettable night out in NYC.
It was an absolutely fantastic experience! I was incredibly pleased with everything and I would recommend it to everyone I know.
It is a great restaurant. I got wonderful gluten-free cuisine experience and excellent northern-European beverages. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Exceptional Restaurant with Amazing service
I have been to quite a few michelin starred restaurants in the UK and i have to say Aquavit has to be one of the best I have been to. We had the seasonal tasting menu with the paired wines.
The food on the menu was traditional to scandinavia and was put together exceptional well. Not only was the food superbly tasty but it was also extremely tasty. The paired wines matched the food perfectly and we were told about the orgins of each wine and how it matched the food.
In addition to the excellent food and wine the service at the restaurant was exemplary. We had 8 waiters/sommeliers serving us and the service was attentive but not intrusive. Each and every individual was knowledgable, professional and attentive.
I can not recommend this restaurant highly enough and I would not be shocked to see that they get awarded a third michelin star in the near future.
Excelent restaurant, had high hopes when I booked the dinner and Aquavit fulfilled them. The service was amazing and the food was extremely good.
This place nails service - food - ambiance.
Best restaurant in the city. Great service and incredible food.
Everything and everyone at Aquavit was absolutely amazing
.....except our main waiter...we have had better service at a chain restaurant then what was given to us my him.....his support team were fabulous and the food was sublime but for a two star restaurant you really need to observe your staff to make sure they are up to par for that two star rating. If not for the support staff I think we would have given him a zero for his tip so he can thank them for the 25% tip that I hope he has to share with them because he truly did not deserve it.
