Delicious and creatively presented food, and incredible service to boot! Came with my family, who thinks that this is the best fine dining restaurant in New York so far. Would highly recommend for a special occasion.

Had one of the most amazing experience here. Service was exceptional and so enjoyable, food and wine stimulated me from every senses, feeling of nature but with such sophistication. Made me feel alive and so glad to be a human, to enjoy such time on our planet. I would recommend to bring anyone special; as this place will make you feel very special.

The service and food were absolutely amazing! We did the wine pairing and it was outstanding. Chef Ronny was personally overseeing the kitchen and it was a great experience to be able to see the rest of the team working, just wish he would’ve been more interactive with the guests. Will definitely come back!

Despite having 2 Michelin stars, Atera is severely underrated. I can’t emphasize enough how enjoyable the experience is here and how good the food is. Chef Emborg is awesome and the service is impeccable.

Atera used to be my favorite fine dining restaurant in the city. I went there several times a year, including the rent of a whole restaurant for a private celebration. After my last visit it felt like they just got lazy on all levels- food wasn’t as innovative, and service got much worse. Sad to see that!

I can't say enough good things about my experience at Atera. The waitstaff was so attentive and genuinely kind. The fifteen course meal was delectable and the atmosphere so intimate. I especially loved the caviar, IPA cream and pistachio gelato dish. I would never think to combine those ingredients, but it was absolutely delicious. The lime juniper starter drink and the mandarin dessert were also awesome. To have food and service like this, the $285 is really a bargain. I would go again in a minute.

I travel from New Mexico to New York twice a year, primarily to dine at great restaurants. Atera is always the first reservation I make. I consider it the greatest restaurant in the U.S.

Wow!!!!! I honestly never take the time
to write reviews. We’ve been to many Michelin starred restaurants around the world and honestly Atera blew our minds. We did not have one bad thing to say about the experience. Everything was perfection from beginning to end. From the food to the service to the wine pairings. The bar has now been set from herein out.

Atera made my birthday evening truly unforgettable. The food was stunning, but the experience stretched beyond culinary excellence. The ambiance and intimacy of the restaurant along with impeccable service made for an evening that seemed impossible to replicate. The dinner in many ways seemed meditative. Watching the chefs work deftly behind the counter, the team was in a dance between preparing and serving bites of heaven. The wine glasses filled, the courses swapped, the senses perked. We were thrilled and delighted.

I’m a New Yorker living in Memphis but manage to fly in frequently to enjoy things you can only find in NY. All I can say is that I ate at Eleven Madison Park earlier in the week, had an excellent meal, even toured the kitchen.
But Atera blew me away. So much so that I ate there again 2 days later. Every dish is an explosion of flavors in your mouth. In fact they had just made changes to their menu; the previous one was outstanding as well. The Reserve wine pairing is expertly arranged and hits with every dish.
The staff is perfection and they make you feel like your home. The rock and roll music playing in the background is a special added touch. Every detail with a purpose, created to give us the most exceptional dining experience. I walked away both times very content and happy; reminiscing about each dish and the great people who work at Atera. I am looking forward to the next time. Since the advent of virtual reviews, this is my first. Enjoy.

The attention to detail and overall immersion in food, and sensory delights is truly immaculate and cheerfully dazzling. If you choose to go here, you can hand your evening over to the team at Atera and you’ll be sure to be taken care of. This is all without mention of the food but once the first plate hits the table, you’ll be in for an experience- inventive, precise, and playful. Every bite will have you grinning with joy. A true delight and pleasure.

Very special experience in a lovely and relaxing setting. The staff was attentive and knowledable, the food was inventive and exquisite without, somehow, being pretentious. There was a subtle playfulness to the meal, which I enjoyed. The meal is pricey, so only a rare treat for me, but worth it...

Service was exceptional as always, entire staff was so personable and provided such detailed service from the moment you walk in till you get you coat when you leave! Food was creative with many new dishes after dining often. Wine tasting was exciting with many new wines I’ve not tried previously. One of the best spots in New York.

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.
