Seemed a little disconnected. Staff was often bunched up chatting. Just not a locked in really good restaurant experience.
One of my favorites! Great place to go on a date or with a group. The grouper special was wonderful!
They told us we didn’t have reservations after a show.
Outstanding service, very good food! Had a late meal after a play.
Everything was wonderful! Our table was perfect, our waiter was attentive and the food was fabulous. Great wine list.
We had a tight schedule and the staff worked with us to meet our timetable.
Very enjoyable...great food and service!
Outstanding food and service. I will be going back soon and will recommend it to friends.
Love this place! Never disappoints.
As usual the wait staff is excellent, great atmosphere, the food is superb!
Always a great experience! Attentive service, nice atmosphere, outstanding food. I consider the prices very reasonable for food quality and ambiance.
It was one of the best restaurant experiences I've ever had! Food came so quick! I got a rose upon leaving from the manager! So kind!
We felt we were shunned from the moment we walked in. We had to wait 20 minutes for our reserved table; they didn’t take our coats (others were being taken); we were seated in the first table by the front door; and as we left, other women were offered roses and we were not. The food was good but we were very disappointed how we were treated.
We always enjoy our experience. Atmosphere and food are very good. Wish more fish chooses. Prices of specials very high.
Around Broadway show time it is kind of hectic and the service is good but not terribly attentive. The food is good. The portions are very large and the price reflects this. I don’t think anyone who is not extremely hungry could really finish the whole meal. I don’t know the policy on sharing entrees but they did serve a hood spinach salad to four of us. It is pretty noisy but fortunately we were in a corner. Might not seem desirable to some people but it was to us since we could mostly hear each other
The restaurant is wonderful except for the following:
We were seated at a very small table in a very tight space. It was very uncomfortable being right on top of others. It was very loud and couldn’t even talk to my wife. After dinner we told the manager about our unpleasant experience and he said that is just the way it is. My suggestion is not to space tables so close and add noise dampeners to lessen the loud sound from people trying to talk over their neighbors. We will probably try some other restaurant when we return.
Our favorite in NYC. As always everything was excellent!
Three of us had lunch at La Masseria during restaurant week. Just by chance, we all ordered different appetizers and different main courses - and everything was excellent. In addition, I ordered a dessert from the Restaurant Week menu for a $4 supplement, and it was very good; my daughter ordered creme brulee (not on the Restaurant Week menu) - I thought the $11 was a little high. Service was attentive but we did not feel rushed. We will definitely be back to try some other dishes.
Salad too much dressing.
The food was perfectly cooked my friend asked for well done which it was. The veggies on the plate where grilled perfectly.
We celebrated a 60th birthday at La Masseria, and it lived up to the reviews. Delicious food, great atmosphere, excellent service. Looking forward to returning!
We had buffalo milk mozzarella app which was really good. The tomato was fresh and ripe, plenty of prosciutto and the cheese was flavorful. Next was lamb and porcini mushroom cavatelli. The pasta tasted home made, the rest of the dish was like lamb stew and the mushroom flavor was barely there. The other dish was a veal special which I believe was saltimbocca. There were 3 veal medallions maybe 4 inches in diameter and super thin-too thin for our liking. Not enough for an entree; served with mashed potato, about a half cup. There are NO substitutions allowed for any reason. We asked for a pasta instead of the potato and veg. We were offered a half order of pasta with an up charge in addition to the potato and veg. I can understand for restaurant week menu but when you are paying top dollar for a meal it’s disenchanting. For dessert we got the ricotta cheesecake. It did not have the consistency of Italian cheesecake, more like NY cheesecake, creamy and dense with the ricotta cheese flavor slightly coming through on the back end. I would not call it Italian cheesecake for sure but it was good. Also we had the flourless chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. It was good.
Bottom line, if you don’t mind spend top dollar for mediocre food, it’s your place. We won’t be going back.
Food was good and loved the atmosphere.
Even though my friend and I went for a restaurant week, regular menu in general was reasonably priced.
Service wise, really liked the gestures from staffs. Putting freshly grated extra cheese and pepper table side was good, but would’ve been better if had knowledge on which dish needs it. Last but not least would’ve been better if the waiter was more sensitive pouring water. Splatter tiny bits on table.
Overall loved the experience and definitely will make a visit sometime soon
Over-priced and underwhelming.
As always, food very good, good palace for business meal. However, our waiter kept hovering and asking us if we were ready to order 3 times as we were in middle of conversation!
We thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience at La Masseria. The staff was cordial, service was very good, and the food was outstanding. The atmosphere was also very nice. Overall, very enjoyable.
The food was fantastic and so was the service, I’m already planning another trip here.
Delicious pre-theater lunch. The menu had something for everyone and we all loved our entrees.
Eating at La Masseria was a perfect experience. The authentic Italian cuisines were incredible and the service was excellent! I would definitely recommend this establishment to my family and friends.
Main courses were subpar. Lentil soup and desserts better
Great for restaurant week! The salmon was good
Loved the food, it was delicious. And the service was excellent!! Will definitely come back
The octopus salad was fantastic. The service was very good. I ambiance was nice, and noise level was moderate. Great place to go before a show.
Fresh mozzarella was good, salmon was fresh and tiramisu was good but a little bit on the dry side
Food came quickly and it was very good. Everyone was very nice as well.
Our favorite Italian restaurant in the city. Cozy, quiet, professional, delicious. A wonderful meal as always.
Went for a last minute lunch during restaurant week. Great ambiance, menu selection, food and service. I would highly recommend.
The hostess was with a terrible attitude, approach was terrible. I made the reservation with OpenTable, he didn't find it and assumed I did not make the reservation. Finally, we found the friend we are going to meet just sitting at the table.
The waiter speaks very fast and all the dinner was pushing us to order, to bring the next plates, to order the dessert, pffff... awful!
The quality of the ingredients was not as good as past visits I can say we have poor dishes with not a good sense of taste.
The bill was an important amount as always but this time my value for money didn't show up at the dinner.
