Absolutely amazing experience with, what felt like, a chef's table dining.
Each course unique and different making a favourite different to decide on.
High levels of attentive staff pacing the 12 course tasting menu.
Not cheap, but much better than some long standing higher Michelin rated restaurants and worth the money.

The service is sensational and the food is just as incredible. The combinations of flavors and textures are wonderful. They use the foods and flavors that are in season to keep everything fresh. You get personal one on one attention from all the staff that really makes this place stand out and above from all the rest.

The entire team led by Matthew and Rachel (along with another gentleman) did a superb job in helping us celebrate our special night out. We enjoy returning every so often to see what changes have been made to the menu and were sad to hear that the tea ceremony/show was no longer available. Excellent service and very good food.

Outstanding best restaurant I’ve been to in a long time! Same food quality if not better than Le Bernardin, Per Se, and definitely Eleven Madison Park. Plus the atmosphere is much less stuffy and more fun. Can’t wait to go again! Side tip for ladies: staff is hot. 5 stars!

Celebrated my friend’s birthday and it was the perfect place to do it. Fantastic food and very welcoming crew! It’s like going to an opera and you get front row seats! You get to watch all the performers up close.

We went there for our anniversary. They were incredibly accommodating and we had one of the best dinning experiences ever. The food was impressively high quality and the service was nothing short of perfect. We’ll definitely be back.

Dinner here wasn’t just a meal, it was an experience of a lifetime. From the depth of flavors, different textures, and presentation, every detail was that of art. If you’ve ever been curious to know what poetry would taste like, Chef Ronny can plate that for you lol Big thanks to everyone at Atera for welcoming me and providing me with memories that I will cherish forever.

3rd time at Atera and it was great as it always has been. We were celebrating my wife’s 40th birthday and I isn’t want to take a chance with another restaurant that we hadn’t been to. Every dish was great and the Uni/egg/truffle dish was spectacular.

Little touches like them remembering it was her birthday and the fact that they played the song I requested were also greatly appreciated. Would recommend Atera to anyone looking for a really top-notch dining experience!

Well deserved two stars, perfect execution, creative and delicious. Just fantastic. The wine list is superb, and not badly priced for NYC, do seek the advice of the sommelier.

Had great seats. Wine list for American reds was limited. Chef was able to accommodate our food preferences. No real bread course. Since I don't eat beef and a veal course was served, I was given a vegetarian course instead of being offered another protein, which should have been substituted. Came away satisfied though not full. Service was impeccable. Staff were all very nice.

This was pretty much the best foodie dining experience I’ve had and that includes some pretty spectacular Michelin-rated dining we’ve done in Europe and Asia.

Not cheap but well worth the cost. We tried the “temperance pairing” mocktails and ordered one pairing to share and sipped our wine. The mocktail pairing was super interesting and also, definitely worth trying just for the presentation and it’s nothing you’d get anywhere.

Will be back!

The food was great. The waiters and chefs were really nice. They remembered my friend's birthday and brought her a nice desert and gave us a personalized menu. Really nice touch which I appreciate. Also my friends liked the ambience and soundtrack they said it reminded them of "Billions". The counter seating was nice everyone was quiet and respectful with phone usage. Very high end experience. Thanks!

Amazing place, worthy of 3 michelin stars. Having dined at Marea the night before, the two restaurants are in a different league (though both are great).

We had 15 courses, spaced out over about 3 hours. Kaluga caviar with pistachio ice cream and beer foam, king crab with chicken skin, waffle with trout roe and arctic char, ricotta with truffles and balsamic, cedar veal, duck, all outstanding and well portioned.

Wine list was exhaustive, with plenty of good choices in the $80 - $150 range, which isn't always the case. Ended up going through two bottles.

Service was top notch. The only restaurant (out of dozens of Michelin starred ones we've eaten at) that noticed that my wife is left handed and offered to setup cutlery accordingly...
