From the moment we walked into the restaurant we were treated like royalty. The hostess was pleasant & seated us on time. Our waiters were very attentive during the entire meal. The selections on Chef Enco's menu are always top shelf. We had the Linguine Nero, which was amazing. After dinner we stopped by the bar and had a drink with Anita who was tending bar. She is a lovely young lady with a great personality. I would highly recommend Chaz Palminteri's if you are looking for good food & good service. Stan

I must start by saying that from the moment we walked into the restaurant, we were greeted with exceptional service. The hostess and I believe the manager (in the tuxedo) immediately greeted my 6 year old daughter and told her they had a reservation that included her doll from American girl. She was thrilled and the entire night the waiters were so attentive to all of us, but especially to my daughter. That, to me, makes a restaurant stand out among the rest. Most have the perception that a high end, classy restaurant is not meant for children but this was not the case at all. In addition to the exceptional service, the food was phenomenal, as well as the dessert and cappuccinos. I would like to thank the staff for such a wonderful night. The only thing missing was Mr. Palminteri himself - which really would have completely topped off our night, as we are big fans of his. Well Mr. Palminteri- we missed you but your staff and restaurant were exceptional so we thank you and we will definitely return and recommend to all.
P.S. I was born and raised in the Bronx!!

Well, I was very much disappointed. The restaurant was very dark and it was hard to view the menu. I know, from the website, that there is a Pre-Fixe and a Bronx Tail Pre-Fixe and neither was offered to us. The pricing is extremely high for the amount of food you receive, left hungry. The food was adequate at best and nothing was HOT, luke warm, which I mentioned to the waiter but he did not do anything about it. The crepe desert, one of the most expensive, was absolutely lousy, I could make better myself at home. The staff was wonderful and attentive but, unfortunately, it does not make up for the expense and the low tasting quality of the food. Chazz you need to do better, I would not go back, not worth it. There weren't many in the dining room Sunday evening so maybe the reviews have not been good and I probably did not pay much attention, very disappointing to say the least from one Italian to another.
Thank You,
Regina.

Great setting at a good location in midtown Manhattan. Food was great! Ordered a grilled octopus as appetizer and it was amazing! One of the best I’ve ever had in New York City. 80s rock music seemed a little weird for the restaurant but overall experience was great! Highly recommended.

This hit on all cylinders. Amazing food. Great service and we had a great bottle of wine for about $80. My wife had a spinach pasta with seafood/lobster tail and fra diavolo sauce-fantastic. The tiramisu was some of the best we ever had. Highly recommend.

Classy place with good food and a really attentive wait staff. We were there during Restaurant Week and took them up on their offerings, which were excellent, plus the wine was very nice. The serving sizes were perfect for me, a little much for my wife but not excessively so. We still managed to finish our desserts! I really enjoyed the cannoli. Our waiter was great.

Our meals were very good, and portions were ample. I particularly liked the kalamata olives and chunks of fresh Parmesan cheese that accompanied the bread basket/ olive oil dip. The restaurant had a diverse Restaurant Week menu which is great when you have a group of people with different palates. The A/C did not seem to be working very well, so dining was a little uncomfortable, but OK. My biggest complaint was that I had a reservation for 3 @ 6:30pm, but was not seated until close to 7:00pm. However, the maitre’d was very apologetic, and upon seating us, immediately told our waiter to give our table a round of drinks “on the house.” I would definitely recommend dining here, and I would return as well. This restaurant is affiliated with the Empire steakhouses in Manhattan, and Empire is another top pick for RW or anytime!

After an hour and a half our entree was not delivered. Waiter needed to be reminded to bring the wine order. They knew we had a curtain to make and the excuse was they are busy.
We left to make a show, unfed and not pleased.

I have eaten at Chazz Palminteri's other NYC location during a previous Restaurant Week and so wanted to take advantage of this summer's RW to partake at the West Side establishment. It is located next door to the Cambria Hotel and, in fact, has an entryway from the hotel into the restaurant. Street parking is challenging during the week so it is best to use public transportation or walk. There are a few table outdoors and a few more just inside the main entrance but otherwise you are seated in one of two dining areas left and right toward the rear; these areas do not offer any outside views but gives you peace and quiet away from the traffic.
This Midtown West CP restaurant is much more modern in decor than its other location but the service is otherwise impeccable and the waitstaff anxious to please. Our special menu allowed us to try the Caesar salad and golden fried calamari for appetizers (both very good) and the rigatoni and breast of chicken entrees (the chicken was a little dry and perhaps left on the grill a little too long). But the presentation was nice and the food served at the right temperature. Our server did check in on us once to make sure we were set with our meal.
All things considered, a welcome respite from the rigors of the workday, a great place to have lunch with my wife and a fine dining experience at Chazz Palminteri's.

We chose this restaurant for a restaurant week/pre theatre dinner. The choices in the pre-fix were many more than the typical restaurant and that was an attraction. The restaurant is very nice and the servers were very friendly. We started with the fried calamari which was so tender and delicious. Also the pappardelle with veal ragu, also very nice. My friend had the skirt steak with salad which was very good. I ordered the St Peter's fish which the waiter recommended. I actually took a couple of bites and left the entire thing. Our server came to check on us after I had taken only a bite and was still deciding so I didn't say anything. I never sent it back because I had pasta to begin with and I wasn't starving...and I just wasn't in the mood to deal with it. I thought it tasted slightly off (perhaps why the server recommended it) but it wasn't blatantly terrible. It was borderline and I didn't like the flavors anyway. The only thing is, when our server asked if I wanted to wrap it up to go and I said no I was surprised that he didn't ask if anything was wrong with it. He probably felt guilty that he recommended it and didn't want to deal with it either. We had a nice tiramisu and cannoli for dessert. I will say that compared to a few other restaurant week meals over the years the portions here were much more generous. I would still recommend it and would perhaps go back again, regardless of the fish. I know that sounds surprising but I still think the restaurant did a good job with everything else.
