Never disappoints. Great food, good service and a wine list that is off the charts! And the Warhols on the wall are an added bonus..

The tiramisu was very disappointing. $14 for what essentially was tiramisu whipped in a glass and it was all air! Very lame.

I used to love this restaurant, but the last few times I’ve been I’ve noticed the food has been increasingly disappointing. The service, ambiance and bar are excellent. The food was bland. The uovo frito offers a generous serving of black truffle shavings, which had absolutely no flavor whatsoever. The prices are steep. The food should be better.

Food was wonderful. Great choices and ability to halve quantities to enable a comfortable 4 courses and try more plates. Champagne and sparkling wine choices were not great so go straight to the wines or start with a cocktail. Will definitely go back - Soooooo many more dishes to try!

Best place in New York for a business breakfast. Host was incredibly helpful. Place was busy, efficient but relaxed. The only thing I would improve is the noise level. Bit loud for a proper business discussion.

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.
