Last time I had this fantastic of a gastronomical experience was at Noma, Copenhagen . Chef Emborg meticulously crafted each dish with attention to detail for taste, texture and presentation. Every course was a culinary delight.
Hats off to the service crew & staff, bravo! Cheers to Chef, for a brilliant execution and the best evening of 2020, yet. Thank you
I was rather disappointed with Atera. The food was fine; it is Michelin star grade. But the atmosphere was too uptight, the chef looked angry and unhappy and one of the Scot servers was rude. I am not able to enjoy food in a tense ambiance and for the price I paid I expected the entire staff, starting with the chef, to have minimum charm. Some dishes were rather heavy: I wished I had seen more creativity rather than the usual suspects: caviar, uni, foie gras and truffle oil. I enjoyed the opening cocktail, the dumpling and the passion fruit mochi. I am a bit concerned by the level of cholesterol that comes as part of the entire tasting menu. Sadly I will not be coming back, nor will I recommend Atera to others. Good luck.
It is truly a top restaurant and deserve three Michelin stars. Very creative delicious elegant artsy and pleasing menue.
Amazing meal with 16 courses that ranged from very good to amazing. Service is perfect. Love sitting at counter and watching the chefs prepare the courses. Also enjoyed the music selections that play and keep the atmosphere pretty casual.
They charged us 1,000 for a meal for two. We are not going back to this restaurant.
Very unassuming location but lovely relaxed dining room with guests dressed from relaxed to smart casual. Special mention must go to Messrs Abbick and Manka at front of house who genuinely provided some of the best service I’ve ever experienced at any restaurant - the entire team is incredibly friendly and personable.
The food was of a very high standard as you’d expect and immaculately presented. The team were happy to explain more about each dish and their passion for their work was evident.
If you have the funds to go (it isn’t cheap, we saved months for it), enjoy food and you’re looking for a fine dining experience in NY, I’d happily recommend this place.
this was an extraordinary experience. the entire time we were there was incredible. from the food, to the service even down to the music selection....it was all great. the chef is creative, the staff is attentive, the restaurant is intimate and comfortable. with only 14-18 dining at a time you are wanting for nothing. you do pay a price for all of this but it was all worth while!!!!
Everyone made a birthday memorable and delicious
Second visit to Atera. Still my favorite fine-dining restaurant in NYC. Just perfect!
Atera was a highlight of my recent trip to New York. The food and ambience was amazing. Jordan who took care of us was a superstar. I was lucky enough to score 2 seats over the new year holidays at this super intimate place and the overall experience was definitely deserving of its 2 Michelin stars. Just go and be dazzled and oh, get at least one member of your dining party opt for the temperance pairing. Just do it! Xoxo
Each course was impressive
As a foodie and a 30-year hospitality professional, this experience was absolutely fascinating! It felt a little "Eyes Wide Shut" when I first arrived; a very small, intimate dining area (there were only 17 guests for my seating), and the staff was completely silent in front of us to begin. Service was flawless, and the team moved effortlessly among each other for 15 courses. A great ballet, and amazing to watch. The cuisine was creative and flavorful (think Kaluga caviar paired with a quenelle of pistachio gelato and IPA), but I can't honestly think of a single course that I would request again. This show was all about the ceremony of the service and plate presentation. I opted for the coursing paired with wine, and I enjoyed several varietals I'd never tried before; Bosco (blended with Vermentino) from Cinque Terre in Northern Italy, Mencia from Ribeira Sacra, Spain.
One of the best fine dinning restaurants in NY, had an amazing night there.
Atera is exceptional. The food (about 17 courses!) was amazing. Very creative, with combinations of food one might never consider yet they all blended beautifully. The U-shaped table facing the chefs turned out to be a wonderful addition. All the staff was very attentive, friendly and as interactive as you wanted them to be (or not!). The service was noteworthy. Everything you would expect from a Michelin 2 star...and more. I have never been to a restaurant where so much attention was given to your personal comfort and interests, in addition to proper and timely serving and removal of food and drink. I would highly, highly recommend Atera. True, it is expensive, but given the amount and type of food, it was truly worth the money spent, as no expense was spared by the restaurant in the selection, preparation and delivery of the meal.
Best dining experience I’ve ever had. Staff and food were absolutely phenomenal.
Absolutely love Atera and about to book another reservation!
Fabulous experience. Food, service were impeccable.
This was one of the best dining experiences we ever had: food, service, wines, ambiance..everything was top notch without it being 'over the top'. Just perfect. Highly recommend!
One of the best restaurants ever. Simple like that!
WORTH EVERY PENNY. From the service to the exquisite menu, everything was top notch. The flavors will BLOW YOU AWAY and truly I don't think my water glass ever even got close to below half full as there was always someone there to make sure we had everything we needed. It was like going to dinner and show being able to sit at the table and watch the preparation. A MUST attend if you're in New York!!
Great restaurant. Innovative food, different textures, tastes. Everything was exquisite!! Staff very friendly. Spectacular night!
Most of the ingredients are my favorites, including caviar, sea urchin, foie gras, truffle. The taste of yuzu and lime in appetizers are also my loves!
We visited our daughter in New York and booked this restaurant about 3 weeks in advance. We had chef's tasting menu and I also order the wine pairing. From appetizers, there are lots of creative dishes - egg custard, uni and truffle ... combination of textures made them very enjoyable. For main dish, halibut with dash tapioca is tasty, beef with mushroom is perfectly cooked and duck breast with pear is also well prepared. The atmosphere is great, you can see the preparation in open kitchen and waiting staff is responsive. Overall noise level is moderate.
The food at Atera was amazing, the service friendly and attentive. Great degustation menu.
It was a great experience!
Food was excellent, every dish was like discovering new flavors through every bite. The wine pairing was also great, the wines were different, and complex, good choice for the food.
I will try to comeback to have the experience in another season!
The dining experience was intimate with 6 couples seated around a U-shaped bar that bordered the kitchen. The entire evening was a production, like watching a play, where the waitstaff’s movements were choreographed to perfection. The food was definitely worthy of its 2-Michelin stars. However, the specialize in cooking meat exceptionally well, so the vegan experience is far less impressive. Highly recommend to anyone marking an occasion worth celebrating. We paired dinner with wine and temperance and landed at just over $1000 for 2 people.
Extraordinary food and service - highly creative food - simply excellent.
Unbelievably fabulous- service, food, ambiance, attentiveness, taste, flavor, attention to detail, responsiveness and anticipation of staff- can’t stop raving about the Atera experience
One of the Atera’s team members described Chef Ronny Emborg as a mad genius and being wowed by him over 17 courses, I have to agree. The Danish born Emborg has managed to put together a tasting menu that never repeats itself and has no single style. It is indescribably delicious and surprising and presented in an unique manner. The restaurant is small with no more than 18 seats per serving. Mostly everyone sits at a bar that surrounds the kitchen where all the food is prepared for serving. The cooking team is relatively small and supervised directly by Emborg, who provides a quiet, dignified yet exacting presence. There is no where to hide, no way that a service flaw will go unnoticed and that adds up to a perfect meal, or as close to it as you can get.
The food is among the best we have ever eaten. It is right there with Chicago’s Alinea and Joel Robuchon’s Mansion in Las Vegas. Who would combine Kaluga Caviar with pistachio sorbet and beer cream or place foie gras and quince on a waffle. Every inspired combination worked perfectly. This is 3 Michelin Star food at every turn, paired exquisitely with wine by the glass or a pairing, however you choose. There is no one style, with courses borrowing from across the world. Even the desserts pleasantly surprise with the sweet tones augmented by herbaceous elements. The meal is expensive, even by NYC standards, but worth every dollar. When you have an opportunity to experience the absolute best, you go for it. Give this restaurant their third Michelin Star!
Amazing food, unique choices, service that was incredibly attentive.
18 bite-sized courses which ran the gamut from caviar to foie gras to beef tenderloin to 4 different desserts left me feeling fully satiated. Service was top notch in every respect. Highly recommend.
The overall experience made for a wonderful evening out, especially to celebrate a special occasion. The ambiance was pleasantly unexpected, as you're seated with a front row view of the full kitchen and it's staff artfully crafting each dish as it's plated and served to you and each of your fellow diners (18 seats in the whole joint keeps it intimate!). The playlist was on-point with an amazing lineup of 70's & classic rock, covers and surprises that added to the ambiance. The service couldn't have been more warm, welcoming and on-point with their level of detail and attentiveness. And all that before I get to the food - it was a surprising, refreshing and dare say simple menu that featured the flavors of the fresh ingredients, perfectly prepared and with unexpected pairings that left you wanting to lick the plate clean. The chef's Danish heritage and influences certainly came through in the simple & clean yet artful & delectable dishes he masterfully crafted. We had quite a lot of dietary restrictions to accommodate and they didn't hesitate to address every single one of them, to ensure we had both a delicious evening.
Amazing. I will Definately visit again.
Top class food , every dish was as good as the last couldn’t choose which was my favourite. Service was faultless made to feel right at home and not a stone left unturned. A special meal
The food is impeccable as is the service and ambiance. It is well worth the time and money.
Amazing friendly service, the best langoustine and tenderloin ever, and great music! Had such a great time with my friends! Can't wait to go back again.
A truly great meal
We spent about 2.5 hours at the 9:30 seating last Saturday night. Food was amazing -- highly creative cuisine, absolutely delicious with lots of contrasts in flavor, texture, and temperature. My wife and I each had our individual favorites, but there were no duds anywhere on the 16-course menu. Presentations were beautifully composed, and the restaurant operates like a finely tuned machine. Hard to imagine a better coordinated team.
This is arguably one of the best meals that we have ever had anywhere in the world. We will definitely try to return next time we are in NYC.
Atera’s experience is always outstanding, warm and memorable... it’s what 3 michelin stars should be but even better... by far the best restaurant in NYC
