Had the three course weekend special and it was terrific! Great restaurant. Would return on our next trip to NYC.
Great place and
Had to wait 30 minutes after making a reservation in advance.
The food is incredible here and the service is very attentive. The pasta dishes taste like those we had in Italy. The food is definitely worth the price.
Great place, food and location.
Great breakfast business meeting venue.
The restaurant is an excellent find in midtown. The entire staff from the hosts to the servers are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. The inside of the restaurant is decorated with a beautiful assortment of Andy Warhol paintings, which just adds to the ambiance. We had two pastas and the osso bucco. While all were excellent, the recommended cacio e pepe was truly the star of the meal and is highly recommended. The selection of wine and other spirits is varied and well priced for NYC.
Thanks so much for a wonderful evening at Cafe Lever! We brought my teenage sons who have celiac disease. Everyone was so accommodating with gluten-free knowledge and options. The pre fixe dinner option was outstanding as well. We all loved the venue, service, and absolutely delicious food!! We will be back next time we are in NYC!
Casa Lever was a great dining experience. The food was delicious and the presentation was just as well done. The maitre d' was gracious and our waiter was excellent and prompt without being overbearing. My party of 4 participated in the weekend supper pre fix and it was an excellent choice. The menu is quite big and this makes it easier to choose. If you like more intimate dinners, this place is on the louder side especially on a Friday night after 8:00 but it is still cozy with dim lighting and simple table arrangements. The ambience from the music to the Warhol paintings is effortlessly chic. I would recommend this restaurant to my friends.
Outstanding and genuine italian (milanese) restaurant in midtown. One of the best italian restaurants in NYC
The food was amazing. The ambience was fantastic. They even do gluten-free, which was awesome. Lovely service, too!
Coffee was cold. After an excellent meal it was disappointing
The pasta was fantastic.
Thank you for the delicious food and exceptional service
Disappointed in dish. It was thanksgiving and I ordered the turkey breast with accompanying vegetables. It was a LITTLE ROLL UP PIECE OF TURKEY. The little sushi like pieces didn’t seem like Thanksgiving Turkey. Didn’t complain After all ..... it was thanksgiving and I gave thanks to have the luxury of being there !!!!
We went for Thanksgiving to Casa Lever. The prices were very high and the menu for a pescatarian was limited. The food was good and the wine list was extensive with an amazing lady sommelier. The problem was that there were no regular priced bottles of wine. Our wine was $125/bottle and one of the cheapest on the wine list!! The food was well cooked but there was only 2 Thanksgiving turkey dishes on offer.
Also, when leaving, my husband picked up my coat in coat check and we found, in the taxi, that my new furry hat had not been included and when calling the restaurant to go back and pick it up they could not find it. I spoke to Antonio the manager who said he would look for it and call me back the next day. Naturally, and as expected of that restaurant, I never got a call back.
Thanksgiving Day Lunch
Benchmark midtown meeting restaurant. Food is always solid if at time uninspired. Service is usually good, not great this trip but that's not the norm. It is not cheap but it never disappoints
Such an amazing place. The combination of food/ambiance/service is perfect. And you cant beat the art pieces that you get to view and discuss over dinner. And their desert is over the top!
Everything was delicious but truffle was amazing tho..
My nephew from Milano thought the restaurant and service were perfect but the preparation was not completely authentic to the original Italian preparation, but it was very good for the rest of the group.
It was an anniversary dinner, and the service was very good, and made it a memorable evening. Thank you
Fun place with great service. Good wine list. Definitely NYC prices. Had the white truffles, pricey and no flavor. Would pass on those in the future, otherwise food was “good”. Service very friendly. Loved the sommelier. Would go for a biz event.
First time, loved this place! We shared a pasta appetizer with white truffles, so good! I had the veal Milanese, to die for! Three of us, discerning NYC diners, we all loved our meals, super service, super cool ambiance. Will be back again and again.!
Good food. Attentive staff. Went there for a special occasion. Enjoyed the evening. Will go back when we visit NYC again.
Professional and friendly service and very good food
Food was excellent in terms of presentation, imagination, freshness and portion size. Service was unparalleled. Overall experience was amazing.
Wonderful experience from the minute we walked in. My wife had a special request and they honored it without hesitation. The service was excellent and attentive.
Enjoyed our meal very much. Mozzarella appetizer was delicious. Best part of meal was Branzino. Delicious as was the veal Milanese. Tiramisu was also amazing. Good service as well. Will definitely return
Creative food and very attentive and knowledgeable service.
I had to make some special requests for a table location, a birthday, a gluten allergy, etc. Casa Lever and their staff are so accommodating and helpful, truly a great experience as always!
I'm very fond of this restaurant. Never disappoints. Excellent food and service. Nice place to be.
Casa Lever never disappoints, from the food, to wine, to the people watching!
Great service - and wonderful Sommelier, Carrie. The ambience was special and eclectic.
Amazing dinner. The most beautiful restaurant in the city, delicious food. Great service
Fantastic Italian food with a great wine list, just a little bit noise, but nothing that borders.
The table was great at the back as requested and service was phenomenal! Food amazing!
Lovely experience in Casa Lever, food, ambiance, and service are excellent!
Wonderful Colum the Mau
