We were impressed by the food and service. Excellent Italian cuisine served hot and fresh from salads to pasta course and main course whether seafood or beef. For New York, the price was more that reasonable. Just across from the Westin Hotel Grand Central where we were staying for the weekend, we found Osteria Laguna to have been the right choice for reserving online with Open Table. We would recommend to anyone working or staying overnight in the Grand Central area of New York City.
Great food, attentive service, very good value for the money. Nothing not to like. I'll go back again in a second.
The food was very good. I had beef carpaccio and gluten free spaghetti with lamb ragu; both were excellent. The only complaint was that it felt rushed; as soon as the appetizers were off the table the meals came and the waiters checked on us several times. However, overall good experience.
We're had lunch on a Thursday. My polenta with sausage and pesto was fantastic. The noise level made conversation difficult but otherwise it was wonderful.
Service was extremely slow. Was 20 minutes before
We ordered drinks. Appetizer and dinner was served in timely manner however ordered glasses of wine which cane almost as we finished dinner.
Wonderful food, excellent service, a great dining experience!
Excellent food and attentive service
We were very surprised that after having booked with Open Table we were not in Laguna’s computer so they didn’t know we were coming.
We wondered the worth of using Open Table!!!!
Loved the atmosphere, servers were professional and the foods were tasty and right portions. I gave 4 stars bc of the desserts - preferred cheesecake a bit lighter vs dense and too sweet.
Great,, food and service was excellent
Great as always! I plan my NYC visits around a trip to Laguna!
Lugar muy agradable, la
comida rica y el servicio excelente. Si regreso
Wonderful meal for all in our party! Service was great did not feel rushed at all. We were able to really enjoy our meal and have a nice relaxing dinner. The food was delicious and so was dessert. Would highly recommend!
Great for the location. Good food and reasonable.
Excellent meal, and our server was very good - attentive, not intrusive. Disorganized on arrival, and although we had a reservation, they seated us without noting it, and then notified me that I missed the reservation.
Service was friendly and efficient, and we were greeted warmly upon arrival. The duck entree was excellent. Polenta was a disaster, to be honest. Unfortunate, as it had all the elements of being a great dish, but was poorly executed.
Food was delicious and service exceptional! Not sure how to spell our server's name...George? What a great asset and a true pleasure to meet him. Definitely a spot we will frequent again.
The most delicious food! The best lasagna I have ever had. Literally melted in your mouth. Service excellent. I have eaten at other Italian restaurants in New York. This was by far the best -Next time I'm in NYC will definitely go back !!
This is our reliable midtown Italian in a wasteland of Chop’t and Starbucks. Large restaurant but with a cozy feel. Great menu with very wide range of options, from pastas to seafood to meats to pizza. Service is friendly and attentive. Can be a bit loud. Decent value. Great for lunch or dinner.
We brought clients here for a business meal and had a great time. Our server was excellent and was knowledgable, and was able to ensure that the menu items we asked about were gluten free for one of our clients. The food was excellent, portions were appropriate, and the server was never overbearing or pushy about dessert or coffee. The dessert was presented to us with samples, so it was nice to see what was available. The atmosphere was great and with the bad weather we had, the coat check was a nice perk.
Great aesthetic - buttery-colored walls give the room a golden glow - unpretentious yet stylish, fantastic food, inventive, fresh, and perfectly cooked. Spirited atmosphere with a lot of hubbub but not at all impossibly noisy. Waiters magically appear exactly when you need them. A lot of fun to be there, and very delicious.
My colleagues and I met with some of our business partners for an in-between lunch/dinner meeting and everyone was incredibly accommodating and we were able to have a productive and very pleasant meeting. This is my 3rd time at Osteria and everytime my experience has been great! Highly recommend for business lunches with modest priced good food and noise level for meetings.
In town for business. Great service and food. Branzino was excellent
Stopped in for some italian that was close to our hotel. The food wasn't worth the price - though it wasn't terrible. The ravioli was bland, but not offensive. The cheese plate was served with no accompaniments. Overall it wasn't the worst food I've had, but I don't think the dining experience deserves the 4+ stars that led me here to begin with.
Extremely please with the service and the food was better than expected for the location. I was so happy to see unique ingredients like nduja included in their special ravioli. It was delicious as were the risottos and desserts. Would definitely go back!
fresh authentic Italian selections. Very flavorful, good portions, friendly fast service. Lovely surrounding. Highly recommend!
We used to love going to dinner here once or twice a year on our trips to the city. However, they apparently got a new chef or new management because the dishes have changed and are now subpar.
The orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe had no flavor. Instead of having the broccoli rabe as pieces in the dish it was pureed, with what must have been water due to the lack of flavor, and added as a "sauce". The sausage had the smooth overly processed texture of fake hot dogs.
They no longer have the cavatappi with veal ragu because it wasn't in season. I wasn't aware cavatappi or veal had a season. My husband ordered the ribeye medium rare. It came with varying temperatures from well done on one half to raw in the middle.
Needless to say we will not be going back.
Wonderful meal - we wanted a relaxed pace and our waiter understood and helped make our experience slow paced and friendly. Great northern Italian dishes - specials recommended were the best - a memorable evening.
The food was good, great ambiance, and the service was great, especially the manager Kami was outstanding very professional and attentive. Definitely I would recommend the place to my friends 👍👍
The specials of the day, especially when they cost almost 50 dollars, should be mentioned along with their prices.
The same server asked three or four times if we wanted more than tab water. Asking that twice would seem acceptable. More than twice, frankly, is a bit too much.
Other than this, an enjoable meal, as always.
Great food and service. Host was nice enough to hold a table in a “quieter” area for us while we waited for the rest of our party at the bar. Service was excellent and not rushed.
Good food and high quality service at this place albeit at NYC prices. Truly enjoyed the experience as did my friend who works in the area and plans to return.
We eat there often when we are in the mood for really good Italian food. We have never had anything there we did not love.
And the service is really good too.
Great food and ambiance! Location, location, location - can't be beat since it's a block or two from Grand Central Terminal. The decor and artwork also contributes much to the atmosphere. Fresh pasta, great company, what else can you ask for?
Always great food and service. The manager and a few waiters that have been there a long Time is the reason we go here
Great food and a nice environment. Love the front of house gentleman - he was warm, kind and hospitable.
Great food as usual. Quiet and away from the crowds for the most part.
Lovely experience from the welcome at the front door to our waiter.
The manager came a couple of times to the table to make sure we
