Our experience at Casa Lever was top notch. We were there to celebrate my mother’s 75th birthday and this restaurant did not disappoint. The space itself is beautiful, welcoming, spacious, and relaxing with its comfy seats and booths and timeless decor. The service was warm, helpful, and impeccable. The food and wine was varied and delicious. It’s pricey, there’s no denying that, but in our estimation it was entirely worth it. We wouldn’t hesitate to return or to recommend. Thank you so much for making a special day even more special!

Casa Lever was just ok. The service was fine, but impersonal. I let them know ahead of time that we were celebrating a birthday and there was no acknowledgment. The food was average. One of us finished our meal. The other two did not because we really didn’t love it. They didn’t do anything specifically wrong. I just wouldn’t rush back.

Casa Lever is a cool looking restaurant with great modern decor and Warhol portraits covering the walls. Loved the vibe of this place on a Friday night. Good looking crowd. The drinks are good and strong. They start you off delicious bread choices. We had sunflower and foccacio. You can tell a restaurant by its bread and it was great. The food is fresh vibrant and nice size portions. The service was great. I will definitely be back.

Based in the recent Winter RW menu and several previous dining experiences here, the food and service were fine but the noise level made conversation impossible.

The room is amazing—like being in a 1960s Fellini film. The food is lovely and the wine pairings are outstanding. Can’t wait to return for the octopus primo and the monkfish preparation. Fantastic Negroni!

Two of my friends and I had dinner at Casa Lever during the NYC restaurant week. After a number of disappointing meals I have had during this semi-annual event, my expectations were not very high. I couldn’t have been more pleasantly surprised. The food choices and it’s quality were wonderful, none of the microwave rewarmed gummy, chewy food. Our waitress couldn’t have been more inviting, accommodating and informative. An all around very pleasant experience. This is what going out to dinner should feel like. I will definately be going back.

Some restaurants use Restaurant Week to showcase their menu, and then there are others. Casa Lever uses the occasion to haul in customers to eat pasta. No secondi on their RW dinner menu were actual meat courses, they were primi pretending to be secondi. Stick to lunch in the bar.

Pretty mediocre food. My pasta was unremarkable but a friend's steak was inedible and we had to send it back. (How can an established restaurant not know how to do steak????)

Lovely pictures on the walls..but that really doesn't make up for the shoddy food.

They offer their restaurant week menu every weekend year-round, nd it's a steal. Excellent food reflecting notable efforts to make every dish special for one or more reasons.

We loved Casa Lever - it is in a beautiful, classic yet modern space with delicious food, very good wines, and attentive but not intrusive service- a real gem!

Among everything else that is so nice, their fresh take on tiramisu is heavenly. It would be very hard not to love Casa Lever.

Lovely Restaurant Week experience. We added the wine pairing which was very fairly priced and excellently chosen. One of us had the veal meatballs which were too bready for our taste. Our female server was consummately classy. The décor shows its age!

Not over impressed with the food. Felt they were churning out dishes for restaurant week. This is a great way to experience restaurants and where one would like to return and keep that venue on their rotation. We just weren’t terribly impressed with the food.
