Food, ambiance and service was exceptional. What a neighborhood gem! I will definitely go back in a heart beat! Hope to see you again very soon! I'm sure it's very tough on you right now with covid-19 pandemic. Please hang in there and looking forward to going back in the very near future.

All the best,
Jane

Lunch (even in Manhattan) shouldn't cost over $300.

Amazing, everything was over the top!! And the staff here are so attentive and knowledgeable. From the bartender, manager, and waitress- everyone I encountered was fantastic.
Also, the drinks were wildly inventive. Don’t skip the cocktail list!

Food, drinks, interior, exterior.. cannot get better than this.
Bonus: If you’re an architecture buff, you will not be disappointed.

Casa Lever is the best midtown location for Italian food and great service in NYC.

Mi spiace dover dire che nonostante il cibo sia sempre di ottima qualità, il servizio è diventato scadente ! Arrivi e non c’è nessuno al guardaroba, ti fanno accomodare al tavolo con il cappotto !!!! Molto scorretto il sommelier... chiesta una bottiglia di Taittenger, facendo furbo ha portato una molto più costosa di Comtes de Champagne. Buono ma non quello chiesto con un prezzo davvero fuori dal mondo anche x un ristorante italiano ! Grande delusione era meglio qualche anno fa!!!!

I had the feeling of enjoying a business lunch in the center of Milano. The aroma, the décor, the ambience were all authentic and comfortable. The food was exceptional. The chef made us a risotto that wasn't on the menu and it was excellent. My only negative comment is that artichokes should never be on any menu unless they are in season! I will be back

I’ve have been going to Casa Lever for years and have always found the food to excellence.
The service even better, they constantly clean the table and replace your forks and knives without even asking. Inaddition, the maitre d’s are very attentive there’s no attitude. Love going there plus the restaurant is just beautiful in its simplicity.

Perfect dining experience. Well coordinated service which was both personal and professional and amazing food.

I went with two italian friends and we enjoyed so much our dinner with a very well cooked pasta and Ossobuco and an amazing wine pairing.
Really good Cocktails too!

Great menu selections for restaurant week... tried the polenta with mushrooms (delicious and creamy); bolognese (very tasty and toothsome) and tiramisu (creamy and decadent) All were amazing. Service was amazing. Ambiance was great..trendy retro. Service was on point. Highly recommend. Regular menu looks amazing too. Check out the special weekend menu. Great selections

The 'farm to table' veggie soup was tasteless and blend, poorly executed. The Bolognese pasta was very salty and and sauce and texture was a bit like what you would expect in a much lower end restaurant. 3 out of 4 of us did not go for the wine pairing and our waitress roll her eyes on us.

Love the interior design, but really not much other than that.

One hopes that a restaurant in a building like Lever House will live up to its reputation, and Casa Lever does not disappoint. The food is suited to the landmark interior; every item is perfectly prepared and presented. The wine list is superb and the service is excellent. I can't rave enough!

With so many good Italian restaurants in NYC why bother with this one. Décor is relatively banal and waste of an interior decorating opportunity. Service seems to get out of sequence. Food is ok, but inconsistent and even basic pasta is not dependable.

It was our first time there. Went on a Friday night during restaurant week. Everyone we encountered was polite. The selections on the restaurant week menu were great. i had the polenta with mushrooms followed by the skate. The polenta was delicate and creamy and the skate was cooked to perfection. My husband had the mixed salad followed by the pasta bolognese. Everything was delicious. The sommelier was very pleasant and we reached a selection that we liked very much after our discussion with her. We would definitely go back to experience their full menu.
