I have eaten at Aquavit on several occasions over the years and have always found the quality, service, and ambiance exceptional. The aquavit selection is outstanding (my favorite being cucumber)! I know that I will continue to return to this quiet, delightful restaurant for how ever long it is there.

From the moment we arrived we had an amazing experience. The food was beyond exceptional, service was impeccable, and the vibe was relaxed. Honestly, I was expecting a dinner of this caliber to be much more expensive. Well done Babbo

Another incredible dinner at Batard, the fall menu is exquisite and the service wonderful as always. My favorite is the GM Paolo who works the room making sure we all feel special. They de-bone the DoverSole table side - is the best show in town. Highly recommend.

Put simply, this was the greatest dining experience I have ever had and probably will ever have. It is of course extremely expensive, but if you love food and fine dining Chef's Table is the peak of the art form.

We had the best time. We did the tasting menu and let the chefs cook for us. It was such an amazing experience. The Chefs are amazing and everything was so perfect. The service was out of this world. Everyone was so amazing. The somm picked out wines that were exactly the tasting notes we asked for. Our server was so welcoming and made our whole night. She was so class, and honestly the face of the whole experience. We will be coming back for sure. This is a must try.

This was likely the most romantic delicious dinner my wife and I have ever had. Service was superb. Food was fantastic. View across the river with the city in the background was riveting. Nothing more needs to be said. However, you do pay for the experience.
