The prix fix menu on Friday and Saturday evenings is one of best dinner values in Manhattan.
3 course dinner for $42 with the menu choices being items on their regular menu.
The ambiance and the service is outstanding as well. Hope you appreciate Andy Warhol!!

While the service and the ambiance are very good, the food was mediocre at best. Dessert was excellent. If trendy atmosphere is a priority over quality food, this place is for you. The real foodie will be disappointed.

Romantic ambiance and modern elegant surroundings. Fantastic wine list and delicious food, although the gnutti portion left me wondering if they left half of it in the kitchen. I had noted on the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. However we were not offered dessert at all at the end of the meal, much less anything special for the guest of honor. Waiter asked if we wanted coffee - all declined but did not offer dessert at all which I thought meant they don't serve it. Would have been the perfect ending to the meal considering I was still hungry from the small portion of my entree.

Even for New York standards the maitre d was exceptional. Having a great restaurant is one thing, having a maitre d who can accommodate last minute changes (we went from 2 to 4 people right at 12:30) without missing a beat (whining is common place) is what truly makes the difference. Bravo.

I hadn’t visited in several years then returned in the summer, when 4 of us were very happy with the food, so I took a friend to see if it held up. We loved our meal. And the service could not have been better.

I know why the bar was totally empty and the restaurant was not full at 8:30 PM on a Saturday night. The "management" is lacking. I asked for our party of four to be seated at a table where no diners are facing a wall. I saw 2 available in the main dining room but we were put in a corner table for six in the back. We were dressed beautifully and that was not an issue. The food is excellent but to say the service is slow would be an understatement - a 3 hour meal. Our party was the second to last to leave the restaurant but it still took 1/2 hour after we ordered 4 geloto deserts. There are too many good restaurants in Manhattan to go back to Casa Lever.

We had an amazing lunch here. We were lucky enough to be there when they had their white truffle menu and I got the risotto with white truffles. It was so amazing that I couldn't stop talking about it. My husband got the arrabiata pasta and it was equally wonderful. It was just spicy enough and toped with delicious garlic chips. The waiter recommended the perfect wines to go with our meals and he also picked their signature chocolate dessert out for us. The menu is pricey but worth every penny!

"Power lunch" with charm and grace. All-female group treated with a warm welcome and attention to detail; this should be a no-brainer, but often isn't.

The food never disappoints.

I requested a table for private business talk and never at those table on wall side as it’s quite close to the next tables. That was noted at reservation and confirmed a few times even when I received a call to confirm my reservation in the morning, the table was the one of those table along the wall side.

It should be kindly mentioned at least if there’s any chance not to accommodate as it wasn’t pleasant to be seated in the crowd for that particular situation.

Not guaranteed your request for business finding is quite a challenge.

Looking forward to returning. The restaurant is beautiful. The service is welcoming and professional. The food is absolutely delicious. Appetizer of prosciutto and burrata was mouth- watering. Entrees of pappardelle and rabbit ragu, and tortelli with buffalo ricotta, eggplant, and tomato transported us to Milan. A fabulous dining experience.
