We’ve been 3 times and each time the food,cocktails, and service have been spectacular. It is a bit pricey, but the food and service are well worth it. This has become our favorite restaurant and go every time we come to the city. Love it.

What a find! A refined, elegant, contemporary and welcoming environment, with a menu and service to match. Tables are nicely spaced apart. Despite enjoying dinner on a busy night, my guest and I could comfortably chat and hear one other speak, without being overheard, treated to our neighbors' conversation or distracted by loud music. The food, with its subtle, sophisticated and intelligent play with spices, is innovative, downright delicious, and exquisitely presented. Service is professional and friendly. The staff are clearly well-trained and there are plenty of staff, so while the timing is impeccable, it also appears effortless, creating a soothing environment in which to dine. Not least, the wine list is excellent, interesting, thoughtful and clearly well thought-out with regard to food-pairings. Anyone who doubts that wine is not an ideal match with Indian accented food -- think again! Kudos to the sommelier, who is also very friendly and approachable and ready with helpful suggestions. Not least the decor is streamlined, relaxing and unfussy, providing a setting in which to admire the beautiful presentation of the food.

Used to love this place, but something has changed. Chefs tasting should be in a timely manner, but first three rounds were rushed onto us, then we waited at one point approx 45 min. The entire evening ended up being 4 hours, which was too long. For a Michelin restaurant the staff and manager should have come to check on us or explain why there was such a long break, and instead I had to track him down and ask. We would’ve been ready to leave at that point. Too many restaurants in NYC to return here, I was disappointed.

Food was good and service was attentive despite our waiter having a very large party next to us. The tables were very close to each other and we were uncomfortable hearing business conversations while dining. We were moved to a booth and that was better even though the large party was noisy. We would had the same if we had stayed at our original seats. Noise was an issue and he did detract from our enjoyment.

Super upscale experience. The dishes were a delight as was the excellent service. Very pricey, though. Can't say I cared much for the wine pairing either, so would not do that again. The pours were too small -- three tiny pours for $45.

Menu very restrictive. Unless you eat at the bar, all diners are required to purchase the 3 or 4 course fixed menu, for $125. The portions are adequate, but you better like your Indian food quite spicy. We asked that the food be moderately spiced, but if what we got was moderate spice, you'd better bring a fire extingusher when you dont't request that they moderate the spices. We do not recommend this restaurant, in spiteof it's popularity.

Had a wonderful, special night out here ordering the pickle ribs, soy keema, and scallop/ prawn dish with black dairy dal as my accompaniment. When I mentioned I tended to like interesting gin cocktails, I had multiple staff members recommend and ask for feedback on a new drink they're testing out with curry leaves. I also loved starting out with the Pisco Rising.

At the end of my meal, after commenting on how much I'd enjoyed the complementary pumpkin and coconut shorba with blue cheese naan, they happily handed me an envelope with the recipe. (Soups take a lot of skill to make as flavorful as this one is, but I look forward to giving it a go with a friend who might not make it out here for a bit to try the version in-house. This sort of gesture—even if I could search for the recipe online—was a lovely personal touch.) The tables around me who'd ordered the full tasting menu seemed to enjoy their courses, and I noticed a few other people sitting peacefully at the bar and having a shorter menu. Great value, flavors, and ambience in an area where it's all too easy to end up choosing from the same kinds of meals at seven different restaurants on the same street.

The food was fabulous and creative. We were told the chef travelled all over India to study the food and he put those ideas into this restaurant. The server, Captain Kenneth, and bartender were funny and willing to answer all my questions. The server rolled with my sense of humor very well. The night before we went to Per Se, a 3 Star Michelin restaurant, which was more expensive, fancy and exclusive. But I enjoyed the tasting menu and experience at Indian Accent more.

Outstanding. The food is truly innovative Indian. It is light and tasty, not heavy and extra rich as some other Indian food can be. Must not miss - makhan malai. It’s a rare dessert to be seen at a restaurant - it’s actually a hidden street food available only in the streets of Delhi during the winter months. It was soooo good- we could have had more! I found the price to be worth it. Portions are on smaller end but packed with flavor
