Casa Lever is beautiful inside and currently has five painting by Damien Hirst on view. We had the Cacio e Pepe, the best I’ve had since I was in Italy. We had the luscious eggplant appetizer, made with ten layers of thin sliced eggplant, which melts in the mouth. The crostata with berries was a sweet finish. The service is impeccable. We just went for lunch before an afternoon at MoMA one block away, but it would be great for a special occasion too.

Exceptionally lovely room with great design aesthetics and art with food and service to match. Expensive but with good reason. Outdoor dining option looks very nice as well but we went inside because the space is so cool.

Love that the Bellini is made with a real, homemade peach purée.

Food was meh but not for the prices they are charging. Asked what they recommend as it was my first time there and was told the Pescato del Giorno. I said ok and was served 3 day old stale fish, my fault I forgot never order fish on Mondays. However also had the artichoke salad, part of it was inedible. The outer shell of the artichoke wasn’t fully trimmed inexcusable for the price level they are serving.
Great for power lunches not for foodies, noisy tables left and right trying to share how many million their last biz deals was.

We went for a wine date. Just wanted to have a nice bottle of Bordeaux and enjoy the atmosphere. The sommelier was great. She knew everything about the wine list. Casa lever has become our favorite.

Demasiado ruido, mucho viento, pedimos cambio de mesa y tuve problemas con la comida. Uno de los dos platos de pasta carbonara estaba extremadamente salado y tuve que pedir cambio. Sin embargo el nuevo plato tardó, como es lógico 15 minutos y mi esposa ya había terminado el suyo. Esto afectó en lo que a mi respecta, en la experiencia general del restaurant.

The turbot was excellent. The Sicilian white wine recommended by a knowledgeable female wine expert.
Our waiter was not on top of service for our table. I had to point out the need to refill water and wine glasses. Once should have been sufficient, however I had to flag him down for refills. This really is not acceptable service when you charge $76.00 for your fish special. And we had three! I don’t know where the disconnect came from. I asked about a wine, he admitted he didn’t know about wine and said he would get someone who did. We sat for almost 10 minutes with no service. When a lovely woman arrived to advise she was knowledgeable and helpful.
It’s tough to think of returning because of the mediocre service from our waiter. As I said, I don’t know where we lost him, but obviously we did.

It’s a great place. Service is impeccable. Hostess are really efficient. Food it’s amazing. Is one of best Cacio e Pepe in town. The ambiance it’s so elegant and nice. Wine list very good. This time we try the anchovies with bread and butter, very good. All pastas. But the best , the real turbot, is one of the place they have it. Perfect size. We love this restaurant.

My memories of past diners were great. So, it is with anticipation that I returned to this old favorite of mine. Alas, from a cold to inexistent welcome, the great Andy Warhol painting replaced by low class commercial art that would not even sell on Ebay, to a tasty Vitello Tonnato where the sauce was dominating a microscopic amount of veal, nothing was preparing me for the disaster of the Pasta Carbonara. A grey sauce made mostly of flour, without any hint of bacon or guanciale, utterly tastless and even repulsive made me thing that this dish was the worst I ever had in an restaurant. Maybe they should hire a chef, and this is the nicest thing I could tell. Very sad letdown for what was once a happy and refined restaurant.
