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.

Atera is a special location. The staff are excellent hosts, hospitable in every way. The food was wonderful. Each dish was presented beautifully. The flavors were incredibly varied and interesting throughout the whole meal. The room is cozy and the kitchen and preparatory work are right in front of you. The ambiance is perfect for a special occasion.

I loved everything about this 2 Michelin Star tasting menu. From the casual bar seating around the serving kitchen, to the fun and friendly staff in the kitchen and serving, to the rock music selection, to the details and eclecticism of each dish, to the extensive wine list (who has Vin de Paille anywhere else in NYC?). A recommendation without any reservation (but do book in advance!)

Great food and service. All the dishes matched our taste. Not greasy or salty for the savory dishes, and not too sweet for the desserts. The pistachio ice cream accompanying the caviar is a bit too sweet and gives some fishiness to the caviar, but we like the concept. Ingredients are fresh and cooked right to get the best out of them. Strong beverage program as well. This us a fantastic restaurant with Manhattan vibe. Highly recommended.

Atera was absolutely spectacular as usual - the staff is impeccable the chefs (and executive chef) are precise in executing perfect seasonal dishes - to smash our tastebuds. Michael and Matthew are amazing host - every time I dine at Atera they treat me as part of the family. The menu was undeniable full of surprises and accomplished moans in every bite from my friends that joined the Atera family for the first time. Money worth every bite.

The food was diverse and excellent. The service is very personal and attentive.

The seating is at a counter where you watch the food being prepared. There is one table away from the counter that holds 4. Counter service enhanced the interaction with the chefs and the wait staff.

The food was excellent — perhaps a bit eclectic but that made the dining experience better. This tasting menu included many dishes that we haven’t eaten before. They asked if there were foods that we didn’t eat, and adjusted the menu accordingly. I won’t spoil the experience by explaining the dishes in advance.

Atera is one of our favorites.

Amazing! Each dish was creative and delicious, with clever flavors and textures. We loved watching the preparation of each course. Most of the early dishes included seafood - all very fresh and bright. I did the reserve wine pairing, while my date did the regular wine pairing. While the reserve wines were excellent, the significant difference in cost wasn't worth it to me - when I go back, I'll just do the regular wine pairing. The service was excellent, and the restaurant is beautiful.

Even though 18 courses meal, i don't find it heavy meal, yet it lights, flavorful and taste so good, it start from 1st course the meal that we had keep continued variations from meat, fish, shell fish, vegetables, bird and sweet it all amazingly light and good and the service in all is the best yet is fine dining scheme but friendly and casual feel that the one is amazing for me, because we don't feel it tight and rigid we feel comforted.
In all is amazing food and service it top of it.

Just like the last time I was there, this is a top- level restaurant in the global list of great restaurants. I wouldn't even say it's a restaurant - it's a dining experience which is essentially a 12-seat chef's table.

Every course was absolutely amazing, with creativity not overshadowing the great taste of each dish. Very well done in service and ambience (the daily- changing playlist put together by one of the wait staff is a great personal touch). We will definitely return, and would recommend Atera to anyone looking for a top-level eating experience.

Blown away by this restaurant. The attention to detail in food and service was insane. Every single person working there knew it was my husbands birthday and they all wished him a happy birthday - he was ecstatic! The food - wow. Worth every single penny. The service takes this place to another level though. You can feel the passion from everyone working there. This dining experience was one that we will never forget. This place is special.
