My wife and I celebrated her birthday with dinner at Atera, and everything was fantastic! The food was top notch, with a few standout courses being the Waffle with Tuna and Summer Truffles, the Halibut with Cauliflower and Brown Butter, and the coconut sorbet. Equally as impressive was the friendliness of the staff. Throughout the entire night we felt welcomed, and the staff was very attentive. The service and food were both tremendous.

Incredible! Attention to detail as well as incredible food and interiors are so hard to do well and they hit it out of the park. The wine or tea pairings were great, the service is personable and almost invisible. The cooks are right there for you to see and ask questions, very interactive. Would always go back. The street out front is under construction, so you might have to walk a bit.

You know the moment you settle in to the intimate u shaped bar seating area enveloping the “eclectic” kitchen the meals not going to suck.

While the food was outstanding, the most impactful memory of the experience was the teamwork of the staff. Barely a whisper could be heard as the team scurried about with every movement seemingly choreographed down to the countless tweezer movements plating each dish. A refreshing scene compared to the chaos and stress observed in so many Michelin stared restaurants.

Three of the eighteenish courses were among the top five dishes I’ve encountered.

The succulent squid noodles served in a brown butter white miso sauce with raw egg yolk may have been the best bite of all time. The sauce was so rich and layered a shoe may have been edible enrobed in this yellow nectar.

I’m not a huge fan of fennel on most occasions “but” the fennel confit with white truffles had a lasting sweet and savory warmth that lingered in the most positive. Of all the dishes served thus would be the most complicated to replicate, for me anyway.

Lastly, but not least of my top three of the evening was the oxtail wrapped in cabbage. Imagine fall apart beef, in what must be a sauce made from the reduction of an entire cows bones, yes it’s that intense wrapped in a cabbage leaf with just enough acid from the lime to set off an explosion in ones mouth.

Chef Emborg and his team should receive their third Michelin star!

A very pleasant experience. I would have liked more of a clear journey through the courses, and the middle meat courses were a bit simple after what had preceded, but otherwise I enjoyed the combinations of flavors and textures. Service was impeccable, to the point where a server was ready with a Tide pen when my companion thoughtlessly spilled red wine on my pants!

Atera was such an amazing experience. Everything was exceptional here. This deserves 3 stars michelin and is one of the few restaurant experiences which I thought broke new ground on multiple levels including the service, the food itself, and all the small elements that make an exceptional experience.

We went for our anniversary and had a truly extraordinary experience. We dine out in NYC frequently and this was among the best experiences we can recall. The food was fresh, inventive and perfectly seasoned and prepared and the service exceptional. We opted for the wine pairing, which was a wonderful addition. A terrific choice for celebrating a special occasion.

Well it's been my 2nd time in a short period of time at Atera, as I was impressed on the first time and want to make sure about this place, that's why I came back in less than 2 months.
I believe and I bet Atera will be Michelin 3 stars very soon, the food, the service, everything is perfect and fantastic, the restaurant works like an Orchestra.
I love good restaurants and I've been to many and also to all the Michelin stars in NYC, and my favorite was a 3 star one Le Bernardin, but from now on, in my opinion, there is a tie between Atera and Le Bernardin, they are the best restaurants in NYC.

This is one of the best restaurants I have eaten at. Fantastic tasting menu with every detail done to perfection. Probably the best cooked fish I have ever had. Very expensive but you’re getting a dinner and a show with this chef’s table seating set up.

I’m not sure how to say how incredible the entire experience was. It was wildly expensive but worth every penny. We don’t get this kind of culinary experience every day but when we do we should celebrate. The service was equal to the rest. I can’t wait to save up and go back. Thank you Atera!!!!

Exceptional experience: the food is outstanding as is the wine list. The service is flawless, the attention to details is unbelievable - for example getting the menu at the end of the meal (not unusual) but with the date and the wishes according to the event we were celebrating. The chef is present the entire time watching and making sure everything is perfect.

There was but one minor, yet very important detail that the team might wanna take a look at, the bartender. Interestingly, up until the 3rd or 4th amuse bouche dish, we were not offered the beverage menu until we decided to ask for one ourselves. Secondly, the bartender did not seem to have the so called “service mind” at all. This gentleman did not seem to get compensated enough to smile or be the least friendly. Lastly, the thing that amazed us most. We have ordered an ala carte drink to accompany our dessert course; yet, the bartender seemed to forget and did not make it until the very end when we asked for the bill. He, then, dispite his ignorance, did not even show any courtesy to apologise. Normally, I do not make a big deal out of these trivial incidents, but the combination of actions done by just a particular restaurant team could really taint the whole positive impression of Atera.

They do not care about you as you do not fell relaxed at this place. They do not ask the basics questions for a star restaurant which is if you have allergies, or if you do not eat something like meat for example which is very common those days, and etc.. they just bring what they prepared, and you have to tell them after you receive the food, which is embarrassed and them the dinner has a break. Well the food is really good, the menu is well prepared, the ingredients and the presentation are really good, but for this kind of pricey restaurant something is missing, maybe one day we'll be back but not this year and next year definitely, there is nothing special that make you want to come back.

My husband and I really love the chef's counter tasting menu concept and especially at Atera. This time I had the premium wine pairing and was exceedingly pleased with the selections and how well they complemented the food. The entire menu was sublime and the team is delightful. It's expensive but not out of line with the quality and we consider it a good value. It's a bit out of the way, but definitely worth a subway or taxi ride for an exceptional dining experience.
