The food is not good for Asian unless you love cheese
Best dining experience ever. Attentive staff goes out of their way to accomodate us in every way. Great ambiance, great set up. It is a pleasure to watch chef create beautiful dishes. Highly recommended for couples
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.
Great meal and a unique service experience
It was one of our best restaurant experience ever!!!
Exceptionnel. Etonnant. Peu commun. Tres bon. Vaut son prix.
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.
Impeccable. That is the only word to describe this singularly exceptional experience. Intimate setting, attentive service, outstanding food and wine. This has moved to the top of my list for fine dining.
Amazing and creative food, wonderful service.
Excellent and creative food, smart wine pairing, overall an amazing experience.
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.
Unique experience, staff very professional and friendly. Unbelievable food!! Truly recommend!!!
The best meal we've ever had. The food was fantastic - five chefs and five waiters gave us - 11 guests- the best food experience - nothing to put a finger on and the two stars and all positive reviews are well deserved.
Fantastic experience on all fronts. Food, Service, Wine, Ambiance.
The best place in NYC
One of the best restaurants in the world!
We have been in many restaurants this one definitely deserves the third Michelin Star!
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.
One of the best meals I've ever had. Exceeded all my expectations. Everything was the best of the best. The food, the presentation, the chef, the staff, the cocktails, the interior. Everything was extraordinary.
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.
Absolutely incredible food. Exceptional service and a beautiful wine selection. The tasting menu was extraordinary, The quality and freshness of the ingredients are something you must try for yourself to understand.
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.
Deserves Michelin 3-stars. Much better than Modern or Daniel. Server/sommelier was excellent.
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.
We've done a number of similar tasting menus, at places like WD50 and Moto. This was a very good meal, but not perfect. The service was fantastic. A few standout courses were the oyster, caviar, and scallop. All of the food was good, but the meat and dessert courses were not very memorable. One of the wine pairings was quite bad; I couldn't finish it. (The rest were fine.) It was a great experience and a very good meal, but for the price, I had slightly higher expectations.
was my first time eat dinner in fine dining restaurant.
service was nice food was fantastic wish i could go next time.
