My nephew from Milano thought the restaurant and service were perfect but the preparation was not completely authentic to the original Italian preparation, but it was very good for the rest of the group.
It was an anniversary dinner, and the service was very good, and made it a memorable evening. Thank you
Fun place with great service. Good wine list. Definitely NYC prices. Had the white truffles, pricey and no flavor. Would pass on those in the future, otherwise food was “good”. Service very friendly. Loved the sommelier. Would go for a biz event.
First time, loved this place! We shared a pasta appetizer with white truffles, so good! I had the veal Milanese, to die for! Three of us, discerning NYC diners, we all loved our meals, super service, super cool ambiance. Will be back again and again.!
Good food. Attentive staff. Went there for a special occasion. Enjoyed the evening. Will go back when we visit NYC again.
Professional and friendly service and very good food
Food was excellent in terms of presentation, imagination, freshness and portion size. Service was unparalleled. Overall experience was amazing.
Wonderful experience from the minute we walked in. My wife had a special request and they honored it without hesitation. The service was excellent and attentive.
Enjoyed our meal very much. Mozzarella appetizer was delicious. Best part of meal was Branzino. Delicious as was the veal Milanese. Tiramisu was also amazing. Good service as well. Will definitely return
Creative food and very attentive and knowledgeable service.
I had to make some special requests for a table location, a birthday, a gluten allergy, etc. Casa Lever and their staff are so accommodating and helpful, truly a great experience as always!
I'm very fond of this restaurant. Never disappoints. Excellent food and service. Nice place to be.
Casa Lever never disappoints, from the food, to wine, to the people watching!
Great service - and wonderful Sommelier, Carrie. The ambience was special and eclectic.
Amazing dinner. The most beautiful restaurant in the city, delicious food. Great service
Fantastic Italian food with a great wine list, just a little bit noise, but nothing that borders.
The table was great at the back as requested and service was phenomenal! Food amazing!
Lovely experience in Casa Lever, food, ambiance, and service are excellent!
Wonderful Colum the Mau
Fabulous Italian classic cuisine, very attentive service and great value when you choose the weekend dining prix-fixe.
Very pleasant and low key restaurant serving classic Italian with excellent ingredients. There is not much theater or extravagance to the dished, just an excellent simplicity and depth of flavor.
Lovely evening! Great food, great wine and Great server!
Casa Lever has become our new favorite restaurant this summer. The quality of the food is consistently high! We especially like the buffalo mozzarella, urchin linguine and the new York strip for 2. All of the pastas have been fresh and tasty. The only warning is the markup on the wine - choose carefully. The service is fantastic.
The cramped and noisy scene takes away from the quality of the cuisine--although there's room for improvement there too. the fish starters are hashed into obscurity within other ingredients. The pastas were tasty and the staff was very responsive and energetic. the decor could use a rethink. The Warhol-inspired art seems like an afterthought, albeit a fun one, but the cool architecture is a forgotten stepsister to that pop gesture.
The wait staff have to contort over one another to get to the tables like they're in a laser tunnel. I felt bad for them and their 90's uniforms that were strangling all of them.
Always a nice to place to visit with great food and friendly people.
I would absolutely recommend this restaurant. I have been several times for breakfast, morning coffee and lunch. The food is excellent as is the service.
Calamari, Veal Milanase, and Citarra pomodoro all fantastic
Everything great. I definitely will come again. Upscale Italian reataurant
This is a true perfection dining experience and a beautiful resturant.
A consistent performer - a NY classic - terrific food and service.
Very good food. The pasta was superb, the brussels sprouts were one of the best i have had in New York.
Fish expertly prepared and very tasty.
Superb sommelier, Carrie. Knows wine, knows the list, great and appropriate recommendations.
Not our first visit, confirmed again that Casa Lever is a pleasant experience!
We were there for a special occasion. Our server Cesko was excellent and the manager Antonio was very personable and attentive, as was the sommelier.
We had a party of 6 and each one of our dishes from appetizers to desserts were delicious and beautifully presented.
Looking forward to going back.
The one element of our business lunch we felt lowered the experience was the server who was ly dismissive in the beginning but warmed up and much nicer towards the end. We think all customers should be treated equally from the very start and warmly welcomed--not based on the spend as the meal progresses.
Great food and atmosphere
Service was good
Not being familiar with Casa Lever, lunch was a very pleasant surprise. From where I sat at a four-top at the very front of the restaurant, I had an unobstructed view of the attractive bar area. Although the restaurant was busy, the noise level was discreet.
Parmigiana di Melanzane was rich, flavorful and filling.
The seven grain bread served before and during the meal was excellent.
The Baccala with olives, capers, pine nuts and olive oil was the best execution of that dish that I can remember.
Crudo “Ricciola” was fresh and attractively plated.
The Steak was tender and served with a delicious sauce.
My compliments on the tiramisu, my favorite desert. Your interpretation was superb and beautifully served in white porcelain.
I will certainly recommend Casa Lever and look forward to future visits.
The meal was sumptuous and mock-Bellini was coutured to order- a peachy spritzer, without the overindulging sugar- just perfect.
Here's the Fluke Appetizer
Very fresh raw fish flavor on skin is crisp orange & fresh flavor loaded cherry tomato with sprigs of dill & lemon-mandarin slices. The entire dish was filled with the white tasty Fluke. The beetroot salad also looked delicious.
Main course of Flounder is light and gets gentle hint of flavor from broiled baby tomato accompaniment.
Dessert of gelato (Hazelnut&Pistachio) was rich & creamy nuts, for me, but the chocolate cake with mouse looks soooooo good. As does their rich Tiramisu, which the two ladies beside me were having.
The food, the service, the decor were all excellent. The wine pairing with the meal was outstanding. The whole dining experience was memorable.
Great food. Excellent service.
We had a great table booth as we had asked for a quiet table
It was a nice crowd and the food was really good
Nice welcome from the maître D
Our waiter was good but he insisted a bit too much about offering another drink or other extras.
Weird vibe - music at outdoor happy hour very loud and off-putting. Tables too close together inside resulted in awkward encounters. Food & service excellent although very pricey. There are so many outstanding Italian restaurants in NYC that it’s unlikely I will return to this one.
