We hadn't been to Campagnola in a while and for the life of us we can't say why. The meal and service were excellent in every way. Just as we had experienced in the past the food was fresh and delicious and there were enough options to make everyone happy. On top of that the wine list is excellent and our cocktails delicious. Lastly I must mention the service, it was exceptional. Our waiter was fantastic, he kept things moving but didn't rush us. He made excellent suggestions and was always there when we needed him without being intrusive. We will be back soon! More

We always go to Sfoglia as my parents love their food! I’m not sure if it was an off night (but it was Saturday) however our server was not engaged at all and borderline rude and we were so disappointed! The food is still great but service for us is just as important. Our normal servers weren’t there but it definitely made me not enjoy my dinner as much. More

This food is the real deal. I've been traveling to Italy on business for years and Sandro's food is as good as it gets. I was introduced to this restaurant by my Italian vendors who always go there when they are in NYC as it's home cooking for them. He offers some of Italy's traditional dishes plus some that are uniquely his own. The Cacio e Pepe is the best I've ever eaten and I get this often in Rome where it originated. You have to try the Pasta con Melone...wow! Who knew? Lot's of great extras after dinner like grappa and delicious orange cookies hot out of the oven. Such a great find. More

One is $32 for salad, pasta, and gelato and the other is just over $40 for appetizer, entree, and dessert. I selected the former and was very satisfied! The lemon mint sorbet is worth a trip by itself! More

we had a reservation for 7 and were not seated until 7:30pm. The maitre'd kept saying the table was paying the check. Noise level was very loud. Food was very good and tasty. We wanted to sit in the garden but due to the weather we had to be indoors. It was quite busy for a Monday night but the staff did their best to serve us. we had 4 salads to share and the sole Di Capri was very good. Once the restaurant quieted down it was more pleasant for conversation. When waiting over 1/2 hour for a table, the host should have extended a drink or a dessert for our waiting. Overall, a good find in the neighborhood and def better in the garden when weather permitting... More

None compare to Imli. It was simply superb. We shared 4 dishes ( lamb, pork, beef and chicken) between the four of us, and we all marveled at the complex but distinct flavors and the tenderness of each wonderful piece of meat. It may have been the best Indian meal I’ve had. Go and enjoy. More

We were doing Museum Mile and wanted a fun Saturday brunch spot. This restaurant came up on several lists of brunch on the Upper East Side and my niece recommended it as well. I made reservations. We were placed at a table closest to the door on a sweltering day. There were other tables for 5 available. That said, the Bloody Mary’s were great, the lobster roll was very much enjoyed and the egg and other breakfast dishes were very good. This is not an ambitious restaurant or something that screams NY, but when you want bottomless brunch on the UES on Saturday, it fit the bill. More

We’ve just arrived from Brooklyn and are searching for a new neighborhood Japanese restaurant. We brought our best friends with us to try Ichiro. It did not disappoint. The menu is very creative and met our expectations. Since we are sashimi lovers, the basic test is the fish itself. Here we felt that the taste was a bit bland (freshness?) and uniform amongst the various varieties. However, the rolls were very creative (“Sex on the Beach”) and tasty, so the meal was successful overall and we will be back. More

Contemporary French | Upper East Side, Manhattan

Decided to check Pascalou since it’s cross the street from my hotel. Restaurant is small but very cozy, food was delicious and service was great. We ordered the melon, mango and prosciutto to start with, dinner we had the short ribs and rotesary roasted chicken and for dessert ice cream with some type of pie. I would definitely recommend if your in the area. More

We hadn't been to Campagnola in a while and for the life of us we can't say why. The meal and service were excellent in every way. Just as we had experienced in the past the food was fresh and delicious and there were enough options to make everyone happy. On top of that the wine list is excellent and our cocktails delicious. Lastly I must mention the service, it was exceptional. Our waiter was fantastic, he kept things moving but didn't rush us. He made excellent suggestions and was always there when we needed him without being intrusive. We will be back soon! More

Service was warm and attentive. Warm towels were much appreciated since we ordered several messy dishes. Food was great. My husband and I shared everything. Wines were tasty though a bit pricey. Unfortunately they were out of the soft shell crab which sounded amazing and they were out of the Lady M dessert. More

The omakase was a decent value at $130 or so for 12 pieces of nigiri and a couple of amuse bouche, but only a few of the pieces truly stood out in terms of freshness or inventiveness. 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.
