Sophisticated midtown Italian. Widely spaced tables and lots of cozy booths makes for easy conversations. Polished interior with great set of Warhol portraits.

They needed a credit card to secure charges at the bar, which the waitress kept in her pocket and took it home. When we told them to split the check, they charged the full amount on my friend's credit card "because they need to be covered". They were unfriendly and uncooperative about it.

Casa Lever is a welcoming, gorgeous restaurant. We went at an odd hour of the day, ie, late afternoon, so service was a bit inconsistent. That said, the food was beautifully plated and delicious. It’s a great location for a business meeting.

The food was good but not for $50 a plate. It just wasn't exciting. I had a more enjoyable bowl of soup noodles for $9 two days prior. The service was mediocre. Waiter was ignorant (example: "this ingredient comes from Hokkaido, China"). Bus boy was untrained (took away bread plate mid-meal). Staff was inattentive (some iSheep at the next table was using flash light on his device to see the menu, but ended up shining it for solid 7 minutes into my companion's eyes and the staff did nothing). And a lackey in the restroom?! In this day and age that's just pathetic.

Good food in a nice place and service really good. The only one problem is the cost too high if compared to what you eat.

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.

Overall this was a good meal. Drinks were great its just a bit overpriced for what you get. All had fish dishes and while they were tasty almost $50 when your not getting a whole fish seems absorbadant.

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.
