Caravaggio is our "Go To Place" when we want to join friends, or take guests out, for a reliably delicious meal in an attractive and fun environment -- which is also one where one can also have a good conversation without straining to hear. The service is always warm and attentive -- and it is impossible not to "find one's pleasure" via the menu or the daily lengthy list of specials: the only issue is having to make a choice! Yes, we often recommend Caravaggio to friends and visitors alike in addition to sharing meals with them there. More

Our go-to place since its opening in 1998. The food is great, the wine list better, the service warm and efficient, the ambiance most pleasant, and the overall experience as good as it gets. On this visit, we had the foie gras terrine and a new addition of prawns and swordfish brochette in broth and vegetable, then pasta with white truffles, then perfectly roasted duck with chinese eggplant, and lamb two ways-roasted and rogan josh. All outstanding. Babka and molten chocolate cake for dessert. This place never disappoints. More accurately, it has always been a lovely and satisfying experience and among the best place is the country. More

Excellent service, probably I would say outstanding service. I will come back for the service. Food has flavor. However they have a “Chiles rellenos festival” and i was disappointed. The original Chile relleno is breaded and this one doesn’t. So, i ordered the Chile en nogada instead and the Chile they used is green pepper instead of poblano pepper. It was not good at all. So, don’t order Chiles rellenos if you are from Mexico or you traveled to Mexico and you know how an authentic Chile relleno taste. The tacos de carne and the queso with chorizo are super yummy The green enchiladas salsa taste like a salsa from a can. Green enchiladas and corn on the cob are not good . They have good tequila and only Mexican beers! More

Having lived in Rome and Naples for 3 years, I'm very demanding on Italian food. This place serves authentic Italian dishes. Menu is extensive, quality of food served is excellent. It's a small restaurant so noise level is not high. Ambiance is lovely (white table cloths which for me is a must). And service is very good. My only disappointment was that they were out of two lovely dishes (one of which I would have ordered) because they had sold out the night before (I was there with a friend for lunch). The place is pricy, which limits how often I go there, but the quality of food makes it worth the cost. More

$$$$
Contemporary American | Upper East Side, Manhattan

Lovely ambiance, delicious tea and food, friendly service, not too noisy. The only big negative (and the reason for dropping from 5 to 4 stars) was the tea-serving method is just simply incorrect in my opinion. Tea pots are served with the loose leaf tea inside, which is all well and good for the first 5 minutes. The pots are quite large and are placed on a reheating flame, and the waiters will refill the water upon request. However, the tea will continue to steep, with no way to remove the tea leaves, meaning your second cup will be strong, and your third, depending on the speed you drink, may be completely over brewed and bitter. I asked if the water could be replaced and was accommodated, which I attribute to good customer service, but for a 5 star rating I would want to see this issue considered ahead of time and taken into account by waiters. I've been to much less expensive tea houses where the tea is brewed completely and for the precise correct time given the type of leaves, then leaves are removed, prior to the tea pot being brought to the table, ensuring every pour exhibits the best quality, which is what I'd have hoped for at this price point. Hopefully someone sees this and it's addressed, because other than that it is the best afternoon tea I've been to! More

Indian | Upper East Side, Manhattan

When we first arrived at 7pm there were no other customers in the restaurant, which worried us a bit, but the room filled up soon. The service was friendly, attentive, and kind. All the dishes we ordered were very good, fresh-tasting and well-prepared—the samosas were especially delicious, crispy and thin, and not at all greasy. Good prices on decent wines by the bottle, too. Throughout our meal, the appealing aromas of Indian spices wafted into the dining area from the kitchen, which were quite enticing and added to the ambiance. Would definitely dine here again. More

The service, wait staff knowledge and food was as good as it gets. The Dover sole with mustard sauce was amazing. Oxtail was intense and very tender. Floating Islands and soufflé were wonderful. Among the best in NYC. More

Discover Upper East Side

Just a few years back, the stately neighborhood near Central Park was mostly stale, white-tablecloth spots with very little to attract the foodie set. Well, times have changed, and the area has a slew of fresh places to experience. Not-too-fancy French brasseries include favorites without the stuffiness, California-inspired fish tacos bring a golden glow to winter afternoons, and creative tavern fare undo the top button. But since this is the UES, there are still high-end sushi institutions. Uptown is still refined in its inimitable way, it’s now just a bit more accessible and vibrant, just like a foie gras mini taco.
