Chazz Palminteri Italian Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We loved Chazz at its original Second Avenue location, which was dark and clubby similar to the great Italian restaurants of our youth (in The Bronx). While its new 46th Street location occupies a much more modern, high-ceilinged (and high style) space, it gives up a little in the way of ambience to its predecessor. At the risk of sounding like a Manhattan elitist, the new digs' proximity to the theatre district also makes it susceptible to tourists; as a result, on a recent Saturday evening, the dining room was somewhat louder than we might have preferred. That being said, the menu remains creative while authentic, the quality of the food is excellent, and the service outstanding. Recommendation: Go on a quieter weeknight and enjoy!
My husband and I stopped in for pre theatre drinks at the bar. Emma the hostess was very charming. She was able to reserve “our table “ # 13 . We then went to see A Bronx Tale. It was amazing. We then returned to the restaurant and enjoyed a very elegant dinner. We were treated very well by Ronn. Every think was perfect. The timing of the courses was excellent. The seafood special was very tasty. My husband had the ozzo bucco special and it was delicious and the presentation was fantastic. The coffee and Italian cheese cake was just the right ending.
A great pre or post theater place to eat. High end, classy and saficticated but a little costly. We went after the show Bronze Tale hoping to see Chaz but he left earlier. I suggest going prior to the show if you want to meet him. Great customer service, the wait staff was very attentive.
Beware! Stay away! The service at this restaurant is designed to cheat customers. We were twice swapped wine vintages, differing from what was offered on the menu! We were served lesser vintages, containing inferior wine. I was told that “white wines from 2013 were vinegar” and “white wines from Italy in 2013 are for salad dressing.” Im an interested wine lover and I know for a fact that the wines we were served actually cost 40% less that what we were being charged (even accounting for all restaurants’ considerable markup). The first time we inquired to the Manager, he was embarrassed and offered to adjust the check. Then were were introduced to Antin, also a Manager, who was unapologetic and told us his job “is to make money from customers”. Antin was argumentative and talked in circles, hoping he could stall us long enough while knowing we had an early curtain to catch. They could have handled this unfortunate situation SO many different ways. Mr, Palminteri should be embarrassed ... if ever he finds out! The whole evening left a bad taste in our mouth. (Pun intended!). We will never be back.
What an excellent experience! Staff at the bar were friendly and helpful, the ambiance in the dining room is upscale without being overbearing The food is excellent, there’s just no other description. Our table had veal which was delicious, the capellini was phenomenal, the lamb was excellent and I had the “Bronx Tail”, a lobster tail served with clams, mussels, shrimp and linguini in a slightly spicy red sauce- phenomenal. It’s worn a drive!! Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
Service was horrible. The waiters were not attentive. We had to ask for water a couple of times. Even had to ask to get our food cleared off the table, which had been sitting in front of us for more than 15-20 minutes. Don’t know if it’s because we were not sitting in the main dining room and ordered of the restaurant week menu. Food was underwhelming.
Went to restaurant during restaurant week for dinner following “A Bronx Tale”. Generous basket of bread prior to the meal. Soup was hot and Caesar salad was good. Entrees of Chicken Parmagiana and salmon were delicious. Parm was nice and thin and very tasty. Both dishes were nice and hot, as requested. Dessert of tiramisu and cheesecake were superb. Waiter was attentive to our needs. Only down side was no Chazz. I highly recommend this restaurant.
I tried this place out with 2 co-workers for lunch during restaurant week. We were seated right away and the ambiance was very Zen-like - I really liked the décor. The service was attentive and on point. Before we ordered I had asked the waiter about their regular pre-fixe lunch menu and he told me they don't offer it during restaurant week. I thought that since I had asked, they should've let me order from it since it had more choices and was actually $1 less!
Now for the food: Appetizers - we had the Insalata Ceasare, the Calamari Fritti and the Tomato Mozzarella. All were very good, the calamari were tender and served with a spicy marinara sauce. For the entrees we had the Tilapia Livornese and the Vitello Di Bianca. I really enjoyed the veal, however, it was served luke warm and the mashed potatoes were actually cold it also came with some julienne string beans. I happen to like my food piping hot, so this was a little disappointing to me. For the dessert 2 of us had the Italian cheesecake and the other, the gelato. The cheesecake was superb, however it was such a skinny sliver, not a wedge how cheesecake is usually served, but a sliver so thin, that I had to scrape it off the dish to eat it, leaving me wanting more, much more. I found that all he portions were on the smaller side and I'm sure it was because it was a restaurant week menu, which is a huge let down, because it is not such a bargain anymore when you are still left a little hungry.
We enjoyed an excellent, leisurely dinner recently. Service was superb, accommodating, unhurried. Octopus app was outstanding and all food was excellent. Only thing that was odd, was that my husband ordered a side of pasta with marinara and it arrived utterly bland, basically tasted like sauce out of a poor jar. But everything else was great, authentic, well seasoned and well presented. Well-trained staff. We recommend this place!
We had to 45 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. However, the food and service was excellent, and we were comped a free drink to compensate for the long wait. The manager was very apologetic for the wait. We'd go back. Potato chips at the bar were great.
My friends and I were disappointed in our experience. It was our first time there and the reservation was at 615. We didn’t get seated until 710. When we were seated it was in a small booth with a draft. I appreciate the fact that they brought us bread quickly however the wait for everything else was ridiculous. The food was mediocre.
I made a reservation weeks in advance and arrived 15 minutes early, and still had to wait 20 minutes after my reservation was scheduled for a table. I was then asked to sit in the worst seat in the house by the front door and bar. I pushed them on it and they begrudgingly gave me a seat in a normal area. Service was horrendous and food was even worse. I thought I was doing the right thing by avoiding places near Times Square before our concert, but this place was a major mistake. I also included in my OpenTable reservation that it was my buddy's birthday and that I wanted them to acknowledge him somehow. Not a thing. Thanks for a bummer of a night.
The food was good, but nothing special or memorable. The portions were on the small side, so perhaps they are larger on the a la carte menu vs the Restaurant Week menu. Most of the entrees were served with a salad vs a vegetable which seemed strange. The service was excellent.
We ate at this restaurant before seeing a show on broadway. It was very close to the theater and honored our reservation even though we came 15 minutes late. The food and the service were great and we made it with plenty of time to the show! I would definitely come back here.
