Wonderful food and caring and personal service! It was really enjoyable. We had a late reservation but were not rushed. Dying to go back!
very cosy small restaurant serving great italian food
Excellent food with attentive service
Very cozy!! Very nice ambiance, service and food!
It’s just the best. Our favorite in New York City. And that is quite a feat.
We had an amazing time at Erminia. Beautiful place, both inside and outside. Greeted when we arrived, they took care our jackets, made some jokes and sat us down. The feeling was very authentic.
The food was great, service was great. This is a quite place but great for a date.
I would really recommend this for couples on date night.
The food, service and ambiance were all exceptional. Came with my gf for a date night, and it felt really romantic
We celebrated our anniversary with friends at Erminia and agree with all the reviews — it's truly a lovely romantic setting and the food is perfectly prepared authentic Old World Italian. Service is efficient and friendly and never rushed. This is just the sweetest spot to have a quite, cozy romantic dinner!
Great food, excellent service & incredible ambiance!!! Go every time I’m in NY. Highly recommend!
We heard this was a mainstay on the UES and we were not disappointed, The service was terrific as you felt you were a customer for decades. The food was good not exemplary which is why I gave it a strong 4 stars. Would go back. Thank you for the hospitality.
Wine only - no beer available - food very flavorful with good sized portions.
I thought the food was very good, but not great. The octopus was a bit too salty, breading on the clams was way too much. Everything else was spot-on. I was here just a few years back and recaal the food being a bit more dialed in. Not a major hit as the service was exceptional and the ambiance perfect.
Staff was fantastic. So gracious
A real dining experience of the first order. Terrific atmosphere - small and intimate - experienced, thoughtful staff - delicious meal - nice wine list. A real gem!
Always excellent. A special restaurant in every way.
Great ambiance and delicious pasta.
I cannot say anything bad about Erminia. My girlfriend and I have been there twice, and it has become our little spot! Both times it has been a phenomenal experience all-around. Perfect for special occasions and VERY romantic. I love this restaurant and I hope to be back very soon!
We loved the sense of a family owned service with great food.
This has become my husband and I favorite restaurant. It’s very cozy and romantic. You feel like you’re in another world. Service is always great. The food; OMG, where do I start. We’ve been there a few times and I’ve Never been disappointed. Everything is fabulous, on or off the menu.
Perfect as always. Great food, service, and wine!
Food was great, decor was cozy and service was excellent! I will be back
This was the place that I went on my first date 3 years ago. Friday night was the evening we celebrated my proposal. Ambiance is perfect. It's a Charming place.
If you’re looking for classic, “cozy by the fire” romance with extremely attentive service, this is the place.
Amazing experience; the food and service were great.
It is our special
place. Old school, gracious service and a quiet gem in a sea of NY foodie hype.
The Food, Service, and Overall Experience were fantastic I would highly recommend
Great food and great service. I have been here a few times and have recommended it to a few people and they have all enjoyed the experience. A perfect spot for a special date.
Second visit, love this place! The food is delicious, hearty Italian.
Definitely a 10 in every way!!!!!!!!! A jewel that will assure a very special intimate evening..... service was incredible and welcoming!! Looking forward to returning!!
Another enjoyable dinner at Erminia Ristorante. Service was prompt and courteous. The food was prepared very well. I have nothing but good things to say about this restaurant.
In a word, spectacular. Warm, friendly service, great food, great atmosphere, great dinner.
The restaurant was romantic and the perfect setting for a valentines date with my girlfriend. The staff was welcoming and personable, and we felt very valued. The food was delicious - both of our meals (veal and chicken) were great and I would also highly recommend the octopus appetizer and crème brûlée for dessert! Everything tasted fresh and authentic, and the restaurant itself was brilliantly decorated. Loved it, highly recommend!
Always wanted to eat here and about a month ago we did, and it was delightful. We brought our daughter and her friend back about a week ago, and it was a different experience.
The lasagna was overcooked and salty. The clams oreganata were filled with breading and salty. They brought my wife the wrong dish and when they finally brought out her bolognese, it was over salted, nothing like the first time we had it here. Everybody was done with their main course by the time hers arrived. They didn't so much as offer to take the item off the bill for the inconvenience or offer desserts or after dinner drinks for the table.
You would have thought the host was an amateur, though we know he has been here for years.
To top it off they started shutting off the interior lights while we were still exiting the dining room.
Just a warning Erminia has good nights and some very bad nights...
Very solid Italian food in a nice room. Not at the "foodie" level but very enjoyable. Some of the tables are very close together, so it's tough to have a private conversation.
this was one of the most beautiful restaurants I've ever been to! We had such a wonderful experience. Best atmosphere I've ever had dining, and incredible food. would love to come back!
We were in town for one night only and decided to check out this tiny Upper East restaurant. Food was quite good, but service was slow and restaurant is super cramped. Only one tiny bathroom which could have been on an airplane.
Predictable and uninteresting. A cliche of what used to be considered Italian food. The salad and burrata were quite good, everything else, from the glass of red wine to the pasta, was not up to par. I don't like to give a bad review, but this was a disappointment.
Food and service are consistently excellent. Staff was very knowledgeable about the menu and able to give good suggestions.
I have been there a number of times and The food and service has always been good. It also has a charming cozy atmosphere that is quite romantic.
Food, service, ambiance, wine, all very good for a small “cosy” neighborhood restaurant.
Have and will return!!
