Took my daughter for a pre-theater dinner. We were seated at 5:45 pm, and asked for our target departure time (7:30 pm). That was factored into our waiter’s menu recommendations, which were extraordinary. The service was attentive and quintessentially anticipatory. We enjoyed an unhurried dinner, left on time, and enjoyed a wonderful dance performance by the NYC Ballet, just around the block from this centrally located restaurant.

Spectacular! Second time there was as amazing as the first and brunch was reasonably priced for the amount of food. Not your typical Indian food. My family will be back but this time with friends. We try to eat at different restaurants while in NYC but this place is special.

Always great food and great service. We had a wonderful lunch all due to great recommendations from the staff. Each of us, which included some foodies and non-foodies , had a fantastic experience.

Thanksgiving dinner! I’ve come here once before and I loved the food so I came back and brought my dad. Still a good experience but didn’t like the menu as much as the normal menu.

Everything on this menu is a work of art, as beautiful as it is delicious. Tried the Smoke and Spice cocktail for this first time. If you love Scotch from Islay, this is a must. We love this restaurant and top in every time we visit New York City.

As always the food here is just astonishing good. My last visit was marred by some dismissive behavior at the host stand that made me, and guests, feel unwelcome. But having visited again, I have to say from start to finish, excellent. You are warmly welcomed entering, bags discreetly taken, and let inside quickly away from the cold. My third guest was seated already and having a glass of wine, exactly how you want to meet guest visiting in NYC. Food was amazing and inventive. And one guest, asking excessive questions, was treated to as long an explanation as she wanted. Never a hint of needing to hurry away or boredom. Superb

Indian Accent is by far the best Indian restaurant we have been to. We did the lunch tasting menu and every dish was better than the last. The depth of flavor for every dish was beyond anything we have ever had before! The service was impeccable- knowledgeable and so friendly. The ONLY negative was the $24 we paid for our sodas. My husband and I each had 2 small glasses of Diet Coke. We understand NY prices, but when you can have a fabulous meal with the opportunity to have more of whatever entree we wanted at no extra cost for $55/person, $24 for sodas seems ironic. We will be back many, many times...and we'll have water.

Too noisy. Person on next table was literally shouting in our ear. Not expected from a fine finding restaurant where you spend 200 dollars per head.

They ran out of scallops and didn’t give us a choices. They simply gave us a large portion of Cornish hen in a Kerala masala which was good but we would have preferred to make another selection.

Most over priced restaurant I have been to in a long time. Waiter expected you to have a degree in Indian cuisine and if you want to avoid dairy you are stuck with a 30.00 falafel. Hipster place that is a rip off.

In one word: spectacular. Imaginative menu, food, presentation, service, setting. Prices are reasonable for this area, around the corner from Carnegie Hall. Best Indian meal ever, and one of the best meals of any kind.
