This restaurant is a favorite of ours as we live in the neighborhood. In our opinion it's good value for the money, and it's a nice place to take company and out of town visitors. We have been there several times, and have always had a great experience. The staff has always been attentive and friendly as well. MoreOpenTable Diner -
I went for a nice dinner before a show at The Beacon theater juts a few short blocks away. always enjoyable. the pre fixe Hanger Steak, Winter salad and Lobster Spaghetti are standouts. Nice wines by the glass and very friendly service. There's a Bansky graffiti painting on the Broadway corner! MoreOpenTable Diner -
This place was amazing. The service was excellent from start to finish. The food was delicious. My son has several food allergies and they were able to accommodate us without making us feel like it was an inconvenience. The menu has so many options. My husband was able able to get his steak and I had a vegan curry dish while the kids had burgers. Highly recommend. MoreOpenTable Diner -
I often go to Vino Levantino before a performance at Symphony space. The wait staff is lovely and there is a superb happy hour menu. The atmosphere is cozy, quiet and friendly. This is a wonderful restaurant for vegetarians, as there are some innovative dishes to try. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Arte Café never fails to please. Made a last minute reservation, and even though they were hosting a large party, we still got a seat (granted we got there early) before the place filled up on a Thursday night. Great food, very nice staff who work hard to make sure the customer is happy. MoreOpenTable Diner -
We have a tradition of going to Parm every December before we go to the Nutcracker with our son, daughter-in-law, and grandchildren. It is within walking distance to Lincoln Center. They have good food choices for the children as well as for the adults. The staff are very patient with restless children. We plan on going again next year. MoreOpenTable Diner -
I ordered the tacos (shrimp, salmon and hanger steak) and all were amazing. I think the salmon was my favorite. My husband ordered the chimichangas and he said it was some of the best he's ever had. Service was excellent and sangria was delicious. We have found our new favorite Mexican place. I knocked them down for ambiance b/c they have a large bright obnoxious Corona sign on the wall. It casts a horrible light on the diners. MoreOpenTable Diner -
All three of us enjoyed the Le Monde Burger, served on a brioche with Bernaise Sauce and crispy French fries on the side. The best Burger I had, cooked to perfection. One of us had the French Onion Soup, which he praised and we all shared the tarte tattain, again excellent. Our waiter was polite and efficient. The busboy required some training since he made an awful lot of noise clearing the tables. Our nice waiter took care of this too. MoreOpenTable Diner -
We visited the Grille while we were in NYC over the Thanksgiving break. The hostess was very friendly and the our waiter was polite. If you are a fan of Trump then it makes the visit lots of fun. My son couldn’t wait to try the famous taco bowl. I mean the food is not the best we ever had but, it was good and not over priced. We would visit again. MoreOpenTable Diner -
The staff and food were great. My partner is on a low carb diet, and despite being an Italian/pizza focused restaurant they accommodated with a wonderful steak and broccoli option (while I still got my past fix). I had the house made pappardelle with porcini mushrooms and truffle cream sauce. Also, the wine is very reasonably price. Great place to go for a nice meal out that won't break the bank.

My chicken tikka was on the dry side. Our waitress acted as if she wanted to be doing anything other than waiting tables. The other service people seemed good and attentive, and they let us sit and talk without rushing us (it was a quiet night), and I like that the restaurant doesn't use ghee. I gave 4 stars to give them the benefit of the doubt, since I only tried one meal, and maybe our waitress was having a bad day. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Once again, a great dining experience in one of our favorite neighborhood spots. Friendly, efficient service, everything came as ordered. Nice wine selection by the glass. The pizzas from the wood fired coal oven are really spectacular. Great choice of other entrees and pastas, too. MoreOpenTable Diner -

It all started with the love for Pizza and Art! Paola inherited the love for great pizza from her father Gino and named the restaurant in his honor; then combined it with one of her favorite paintings from Raphael's “ La Fornarina” which means the baker’s daughter! Father & Daughter used to go on culinary trips to Naples and Rome (the Eternal City is the style of Pizza in Gina: Thin and Crispy!) and eat pizza every day.More

Discover Upper West Side
Although it was home to Seinfeld and features other cultural cornerstones like the Lincoln Center, the “Upper Best Side” has long been passed over for other cooler neighborhood when it comes to the food scene. It’s no longer an afterthought, as some of the city’s most exciting new eaters have set up shop above 59th Street, creating more attention for the decades-old uptown institutions. Jewish fare like deli sandwiches and challah French toast are staples, but now you can also find the city’s best dan dan noodles. Grab a cheap Gotham hot dog, class it up with easy and reliable French, and save room for dessert at one of the countless cafes. Just remember to stay intellectually hungry—some of the city’s best museums are right nearby.
