A NYC Gem, with some of the best cocktails in this side of town
The food was amazing especially the octopus. Our host was so kind and and attentive. The waitress Chelsea was so sweet and on point. This is definitely a place I would return to especially when the drinks are amazing !!
Excellent food and service always!!! Highly recommended!
I didn’t enjoy my vegetable fried rice and fried shrimp and scallion dumplings, very mediocre.
The decor of this restaurant is beautiful. The service was great, the food absolutely fabulous. The dumplings are to die for. The croquettes, melt in your mouth and bacon/shrimp and vegetable fried rice was heaven.
A beautiful night out.
Highly recommend the ribs and lobster noodles- amazing and cannot wait to go back!
The service was incredible and so are the cocktails.
I used to drink and dine at the bar quite a bit years ago, and had my wife’s birthday celebration in the basement area over 10 years ago. So lots of great memories. It had been at least 5 years since I had been to Macao and was great to go back - such a great restaurant and bar - will be back again soon as the city opens up !
Really loved the dishes I ordered here—the crispy fish, brussel sprouts (a special), ants climbing the tree, and malasadas. Also appreciated that our server took out the spine of the fish for us! Next time I’d love to try indoor dining.
Great spot. High quality and interesting drinks. Creative menu, relatively small, but everything is top notch
I was expecting better quality food for the price, very commercial vibes
Reservations are a must for weekend dining. We were seated immediately upon arrival and service was excellent. Our waiter was attentive and very familiar with the menu and the dishes being offered. The ambiance was upbeat /friendly and the background music was perfect.
We had kale salad, dumplings, steak, black rice, several types of noodles as well as fried rice. Lobster with noodles was particularly good.
Would definitely return next time in Tribeca.
Perfect place for Friday night gathering!
Fabulous place. So happy to be back after a fifteen-month gap.
First time visit Loved the place, service, food and pace of service was excellent. I look forward to going back.
Tasty familiar food !
Macao is the best place in TriBeCa !!! We are regulars and live nearby so we are thrilled you’re still here and we can come back!! Thank you for your consistency, excellent quality of food, and stellar waitstaff - primo dining experience. Our waiter was especially efficient kind and on top of all of our needs... especially my 4yr old.
We came here pre-pandemic for happy hour cocktails, we had a great time at that time and I made a mental note to come back for dinner. So that night was last night.
They only cater for 50% capacity and also offer outdoor dining. They do contact tracing and temperature checks. The waitstaff sat us for the table for 4 even if we are just dining for two (we thought that was a nice touch, we appreciated that).
We started with shrimp and pork steamed dumplings with our favorite alcoholic beverages. Nothing special with the dumplings if ever we probably had a better one elsewhere.
For our main entree, we ordered char siu bbq back ribs (which is listed as an appetizer), bacon and shrimp fried rice and crispy whole fish served with wok-fried coriander long beans.
As soon as the fish was served our waitstaff started removing the middle bones at the table making it easy for us to navigate on the dish (that was another nice touch).
The dishes complemented each other, it was so flavorful and perfect for a couple. This is one of those restaurant dinners that blew us away.
We both had a great time dining, thanks to the wonderful staff with awesome customer service and good food, this place is a must if you happen to be in NYC!
Cool vibe, good food and drinks, friends/date, maybe too loud for parents
Their menu & cocktail drinks are exceptional, top shelf bar is extensive with a plethora of options. Great place for date night or a special occasion. Ambience was wonderful vibe as well. Thank you for an amazing night.
I'll be back! Every single thing on the menu is divine and the cocktails — oh my god, the COCKTAILS — went down a little too easy haha! This is my new go to spot for a date or girls dinner
The kurv was leaving so we had to celebrate! The hostess was nice we made her laugh a lot. Food and the drinks were amazing! To start off we had the shrimp and scallion dumplings. Our entrees included the skirt steak and lobster noodles. We finished it off with the coconut Panna cotta (dairy free which is a plus). The waiter Dan was very attentative and made us feel like we’ve known him forever! He definitely made our first experience at Macao one to remember.
Amazing food and service as always. Great ambience and a really fun experience! Highly recommended!!
Transporting atmosphere, well crafted cocktails and unusually tasty cuisine make for the perfect date night.
Amazing food, great service
We ate outside on a cold rainy evening. It was cozy and warm and nicely decorated. All our entrees and appetizers and drinks were delicious and service was perfect. Not too much bust just at the right times. This was my fourth time there and it’s always been perfect. One of my favorite restaurants And all the people I’ve brought have felt the same.
Stacey was a pleasant and fun waitress. Wine etiquette could be improved, food was amazing, dessert was delicious. Ambiance was fun, very cool, nice vibe for date night, friend get togethers. Support staff was super attentive. Great Covid protocols being enforced, and followed, felt safe and comfortable.
Overall great experience, great staff, positive experience even with covid regulations.
Service was poor, they forgot our dinner order and it took 1.5hr to get it. Then it took them 30 min just to get our check
Macao has the most wonderful staff in the city. The food is fantastic, the drinks are beyond- something you should experience for yourself. Having just re-opened after a brief hiatus it was truly a pleasure to see their lovey familiar faces. Amy, Damiano, Dinel and the rest of the staff deserve all the accolades for working their behinds off to make sure everything’s running smoothly and that you can have the closest thing to a normal dining experience (while still maintaining all safety precautions). Macao is a gem but what truly makes it so is the stellar staff.
Macao is my old stomping ground. This restaurant has got so much character and charm. I love this place. I can't wait till it fully reopens. And our server Donnie was fantastic!
Tried virtually every cocktail on their "Fancy Cocktails" section and loved each one. Food was incredible and they were very accommodating of dietary restrictions.
Macao is able to maintain its good vibes, relaxed service and good food from a limited menu in those difficult times, while having built a beautiful covered terrace outside and a spacious dining experience inside. Great cocktails! The crispy fish delizzz. Can’t wait for the bar/speakeasy to open again! We had a great evening.
Nice spot. Delicious cocktails, awesome menu, great vibe!
I love this restaurant ! The service is great, all of the food is delicious and the cocktails are so amazing and creative! Damiano and his Bar team have such amazing talent!!! This is a go-to restaurant that never disappoints:)
This was an average place for over expensive food.
The overall experience was terrible the service was bad they put our food on someone else’s table and tried to serve it to us, everything took a long time I had to go get the manager and sever several times to get service, wouldn’t go back, the fish was really good aside from everything else.
The food and service were amazing. We will be back for more great dining experiences in the future. Highly recommend: Macanese Lobster Noodles.
Place has decent food but over priced. Waitstaff were friendly and did a great job.
Italian bartender is bizarrely aggressive and rude.
No patio heaters so expect to be pretty cold.
Great place to enjoy dinner with friends. Must order the dumplings!
