What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.2

A conveniently located restaurant in Midtown that’s more than just convenient. The food and service at Covina are great.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

We are out-of-towners who were looking for good food, varied menu, nice atmosphere, decent prices. Covina was wonderful on most accounts. Being from Cleveland, spending $26 on a pizza is a bit outrageous, but it was delicious and the service was great. Would definitely recommend to others.

Good food and vibe but service could have been better. E.g. we ordered coffees that had to be reordered since the server changed and it came after our food.

A few of my co-workers recommended Covina for dinner with my Dad who was visiting from out of town. We (mostly he) was blown away! He doesnt ever get excited about restaurants and he has decided Covina is the new go-to when he is in town or for work dinners.
MUST HAVE the meatballs (best meatballs of my life) and the honey pizza

Food portions was the only disappointment. Felt they were small, minimal and not aligned with prices. Plus, it would be nice for a small side to accompany main dishes (e.g., salmon, etc.).

We had a reservation for this past Sunday morning, however upon arrival there was a note on the door advising that the restaurant was closed for a special event. We were dismayed that neither the restaurant nor Open Table had alerted to us that our reservation would not be honored.

Really liked this restaurant and it was my first visit. The site I visited for additional information, The Infatuation, got it right. Loved the ambiance- modern with mood lighting, nice vibe and the food was great. Had a pizza- really tasty- great sauce, nice pasta and a chicken dish with sides. They do a great job and I can see why it is populr.

Lovely place, good service. Food was good but portions were almost ridiculously small for the price - and yes, even for NYC. I had the gulf shrimp. Three small
shrimp and half a cup of polenta: $28. Usually I don’t balk at the price but it felt wrong. Otherwise a peaceful and nice place.

Had dinner with my husband before a jazz show. We were seated but then no one approached or greeted us to take our order. We had to ask who was our waitress. A major turn off, especially since it was our first visit. I had the spicy honey pizza and my husband had the chicken. Both dishes were good. We MAY return on our next visit to NY, but there are so many great restaurants in NY who also have great food but with much better service.

Ein recht nettes , amerikanisches Restaurant- eigentlich wollten wir u.a. eine Pizza, live gebacken im Holzofen essen, aber leider waren sie alle etwas sehr kross geraten, so dass wir uns für das Huhn entschieden haben. Sagen wir mal so, es war nicht schlecht. Der Service war gut und so war es ein angenehmer Abend.
