Convivium Osteria Ratings and Reviews
I have been dining at Convivium for many years and they are always consistent. Although spirits are no available, their wine list is great. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a place with good food, wine, friendly staff and good ambiance.
Delicious, savory Italian food in a rustic, authentic setting. The wine cellar was a bit noisy--the laughter of one large party bounced off the brick walls--so if you are going for quiet conversation you might want to choose your seating carefully. Also, many of the appetizers were quite heavy--liver, sautéed garlic shrimp, etc.-- and could almost serve as a small main course. For a cozy autumn or winter meal, though, this is a great choice.
We had a great experience at Convivium. The burrata was soooo good - melt-in-your-mouth fresh. Two of us had different pasta dishes and one had short ribs on polenta - all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. For dessert we shared a blueberry pie with coconut in the topping - a unique and tasty combination. We shared a bottle of white rioja that was exquisite. The atmosphere is cozy and the service knowledgeable and just attentive enough. I look forward to a return visit.
Meal started with 2 salad selections (Farro and Endive and Kale)
Both nicely prepared and served with good bread and olive oil.
Our diners were Ravioli w/ Duck Ragu and Red Snapper.
The ravioli worker oh so well with the duck sauce...Red snapper fresh and pan seared.
Apple tart and coffee....
Very nice staff, plenty of attention, out the door for less than $100 excluding tip.
my niece was in town, and I wanted to take her out to a lovely dinner, in the area. Our dinner was delicious, we were able to stay for 4 hours, and the service was wonderful all night. I asked for a very quiet spot , and it turned out they had multiple rooms - all nice, and I think they opened up a room for us. All in all, it was a perfect evening, and I will definitely go there in the future.
My wife and I have come to this Osteria four times now, each time before a show at the Barklay's center. We've always been impressed by the super fresh and delicious seafood. My wife had the Bronzino this time and it was superb. I had the lamb and it was also excellent.
Our usual wine, the Polvanera, was unavailable but the waitress suggested another Primitivo, the Feudo di Santa Croce. An excellent full bodied red that we thoroughly enjoyed.
Thanks again! We will be back!
I rarely write reviews on Yelp but after having such an unbelievable experience yesterday I felt compelled to write one. I hosted a casual engagement dinner with both families and we had reserved the back area; intimate setting that can accommodate 10 people. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel special, service was impeccable, especially Angel who is the host and makes sure everyone is happy. He recommended great wines from Tuscany ( it was a chianti-wine-like and a great sangrantini) can't beat their delicious Italian food, especially the pastas. We had people ranging in ages (1 year old to 90 years old) and the place couldn't have been more accommodating. Highly suggest this place if you're looking to host a larger family dinner! They also have a private wine cellar for larger parties that is truly spectacular. Great homey, intimate, spot; felt like I was in someone's home in Tuscany. I will be coming back in a regular basis.
We went before a concert at The Barclay's Center. Arrived at 5:30 had to wait to be seated as the only waiter was to busy talking to the only other person in the place!! Just ordered appetizers as we were in no rush but was told no you have to put the whole order in. We did but asked for a leisurely pace to dinner. Food came hard and fast despite asking three different waiters take it easy!! I complained and was told but it's the kitchen, we cant do anything!! Horrible service, only interested in getting you in and out. No apologies.
This has been a place I like to frequent when attending a gig at Barclays. I have been very pleased with just about anything I have ordered in this restaurant. The food is fresh and very tasty. Most recently I ordered the rabbit for my main and found it to be tender and delicious. I only wish the portion was a bit larger. Wine list is credible with a 200% markup on the Rioja I ordered which sadly is better than many NYC restaurants.
I always get the rabbit and as usual it was fantastic. The special appetizer was a combination of spinach chick peas and calamari. Sounded interesting so I gave it a try. So glad I did. The flavor was amazing and it was cooked to perfection. Convivium Osteria is very consistent and you can always rely on an excellent dining experience.
The lovely owners saved our evening and we had a wonderful and delicious birthday meal for our uncle. OpenTable messed up our reservation. I had a confirm for 6, but OpenTable sent a reservation for 2 to the restaurant. The owner scrambled to make it work even though the place was filled on this Thursday evening. He and his wife were very warm and caring.
Many dishes were distinct from the usual Italian fare, and all were tasty. The burrata was creamy goodness. My wife and I had an intriguing variation on gnocci, and a delicious sea bass. The desserts were yummy as well.
