Caravaggio New York Ratings and Reviews
This is an elegant restaurant with prices and atmosphere. We had a lovely time here and we both ordered the Stuffed zucchini blossoms to start which were fried and served on a tomato puree cut with cream. They were beautiful and crunchy but the ricotta stuffing need something to zip it up a little bit - it was like where was the punch? My date felt the same way about the linguini with clam sauce - not enough garlic! The waiters could not have been nicer, however, even though the specials took longer to recite than the menu. BUT I would return!
The restaurant was an impromptu choice - we were visiting the Met and looked up nearby restaurant choices ( there weren't many). We didn't expect to walk out $330 later for 2 people - having ordered 2 starters each. It is a VERY expensive place- especially the wine. Whilst the service was excellent, the customers were outnumbered by the wait staff- there really wasn't a fun buzz....it is probably a fine dining establishment for the quiet crowd. Having said that, the food and everything was good- but it was just way too expensive. If I am paying such prices, I'd be looking for views, ambiance, glamour and something a lot more edgy.
I can't recommend this restaurant as I would not go back. My dish, linguine with clam sauce was fine, but my two friends had the Chicken Milano which was very unappetizing, a pancake of flattened chicken without any garnish. We should have asked how it would be prepared and didn't, so perhaps it was partially our fault, but a restaurant of this is quality and price point should consider visual aesthetics. I asked for grated cheese for my pasta and the waiter
brought grated cheese which was most likely from a jar, and which had an aftertaste. Again, the pre fix of $38 for 2 courses indicates fresh grated cheese should be served.
Service was slow and not particularly attentive.
Great service, excellent menu specials, quiet ambiance, accommodated a party of 7 without any problems. I ordered a good wine that they had run out of and the sommelier substituted with an excellent small vintage Super Tuscan. Recommended for anyone that wants a good meal.
Everything was generally outstanding. The only exceptions were two average desserts--tiramisu and doughnut. The size and location of the round table was perfect for the 6 of us. The service and its attention were outstanding, and our waiter was very personable. The pacing of the meal was also as we requested; i.e., comfortably slow.
Offering a numerous and unique selection of plates Caravaggio demonstrates an ability to satisfy everybody's appetite. In many instances their selection of fresh ingredients is unique. Everything is prepared to order and accords to the diner's requests for ingredients, seasonings, etc. The atmosphere in the restaurant is consistent with the care taken to offer fine cuisine.
The waiters at Caravaggio must have the world's best memories, because they recite an exhaustive list of specials before you even think about looking at the menu. And between the two, Caravaggio covers the waterfront of innovative and upscale Italian cuisine, expertly prepared and attentively served. It's not cheap, but worth it, and the wine list covers a similar range of tastes and prices. This is the rare New York restaurant that is worth leaving your neighborhood for.
