One of the best restaurant of NYC ! We had an outstanding sensory and culinary experience! Each plate is a piece of art.
The wine paring was perfect as well. My daughter had a non-alcoholic pairing and each drink was a very original and creative mocktail playing with aroma and color.
The Chef and his team were very welcoming and accommodate to any allergy or intolerance. We loved the sitting around the kitchen that gives you a proximity with the Chef and a glance at the elaboration of each masterpiece dish.

I can honestly say that this was maybe the best dining experience I have ever had. Relaxed atmosphere combined with incredible and attentive (but not stuffy) service, fantastic wine and incredible food. Every course was better than the last. We chose to do wine pairings and every wine was perfectly paired, very cool and unique and absolutely delicious. We kicked off our honeymoon in NYC with dinner at Atera, and i am so glad we did. It is expensive, sure, but worth it. We will be back.

I don’t usually write reviews; but my experience here has compelled me to do so.

The food was mediocre for the price charged, though the wine selection was comprehensive.

However, whilst chatting to the lady seated next to me, who was equally enjoying the chat, a server walked up to me and said I was not allowed to talk to her. The cheek and gall of the server ruined what was an already mediocre experience. I can not recommend strongly enough to avoid this restaurant.

Unbelievable experience. The service was phenomenal. It was my husbands birthday and I put that in the notes of my reservation. Every single employee we came in contact with wished him a happy birthday. Every single one. And they printed special menus that said happy birthday as well. The wine pairing was amazing and they are very generous with their pours.

It was a great choice to celebrate my birthday with my husband at Atera. The food, drinks, and service really made it a special experience. Additionally, my husband was recovering from oral surgery and the chefs were able to accommodate the harder to chew dishes. I’ve never done a temperance pairing before and thought it made the meal even better!

Really stuffy. Why not serve in front of the customer instead of coming in from all directions? Seat at the door is awful. Some dishes work, others not so much. If I come on time, I expect to finish before the ppl that came late, I should not be penalized for punctuality.

This is by far THE best dining experience we've ever had. From the decor, the restaurant layout, the personalized service and an extraordinary tasting menu. During this trip to NYC, we dined at other fine restaurants (including 3 Michelin Stars), none came even close to the experience at Atera. Every single course was beautiful and memorable. The wine pairing was excellent, the sommelier was very knowledgeable and provided an outstanding service.

I love Atera. The food is outstanding and the staff is friendly and attentive but not overbearing. Great background music as well. Because of the price, its not an 'everyday' kind of place but for a special occasion or just a great night out, it can't be beat.

This a place for foodies! The flavor combinations are complex and mature, and blend like a symphony. I have eaten my way through tasting menus at very high end establishments around NYC, and was surprised when this topped all of them. My compliments to the food and service team at Atera.

Probably one of the better $250+ meals I’ve had. Focus on each element is very high. Given the price, I’d assume most would go here for special occasions. Unfortunately it is a small restaurant with bar seating. There is one table that maybe seats 4. Total restaurant seating I believe is 18. But so worth it go to atera!

The food was delicious. The chef was rude. We were a party of 4 with a moderate noise level coming from our table. One of the waitstaff came over and let us know that the chef requested us to lower our voices. At over $500 per person with alcohol, I found this rude and unacceptable. We have dined at many top restaurants around the world, Eleven Madison, etc and have never been “scolded” at our table with our guests.
