    This place is always a winner. We had the Restaurant Week dinner, which was terrific. I especially loved my braised chicken, which came in a huge portion in its own ceramic casserole. Every member of the staff was unfailingly charming, attentive, and kind; treating us like we were regular customers spending far more than we actually were. I intend to go back, possibly for a special occasion.

    Although dining on the Restaurant Week menu, the food was delicious and service fine. The dessert -- a dish with four flavors of geleto -- was abundant and decadent.

    We recently celebrated our anniversary at Casa Lever which incidentally was our first visit to this restarant. The food, service, and ambience were simply outstanding. We had a lovely corner table which offered a quiet setting and a nice view of the dining room. The Maitre d’, sommelier, and our waiter were all very friendly and extremely solicitious attending to all our needs and helping to make for a lovely evening. The food was superb and served at a leisurely pace allowing us to relax between courses. We were extremely pleased with what was a wonderful experience and look forward to returning.

    Great service but food had ZERO flavor. No seasoning, not even salt. Didn’t bother to staying for the main course after having three tasteless appetizers.

    Amazing dining experience at Casa Lever. My misticanza salad, skate fish and chocolate hazelnut dessert were all so delicious. The service was superb, and the prices actually quite reasonable for the quality, portion sizes and location. I look forward to returning soon.

    This was our second visit, several years apart. Everything was as good as the first time. The service was excellent from every single person who took care of the table. Every dish we had was outstanding. The gazpacho soup was a real treat as an appetizer. Pastas and veal as main courses were delightful in every way. We look forward to our next visit when we are in the City.

    Dining at Casa Lever means living in an interior design set--it is so beautiful, chic, cozy, with magnificent art, and cool. My daughter's pasta with black truffles was her favorite meal ever and we enjoyed a lovely bottle of Delamotte champagne.
