The wait staff were outstanding!! The restaurant was beautiful and the food was fabulous. It was truly a "find" for us. The tasting menu was absolutely amazing. I can't wait to go back!!
I came here with a friend because I'd walked by some time ago and noticed this beautiful spot with a lovely decor. On that nice summer early evening, it felt a bit chilly and darker on the inner part of the restaurant than the outer part. Still, I love the design and architecture.
We had monkey bread (with chicken wings, potato, and artichoke barigoule), crab, shrimp mandu, and crispy poussin. We weren't blown away by anything, and only the crab was memorable because it's so hard to get fresh pacific crab on the East Coast.
The service was well intentioned, and everyone was polite and had personality, but the team was very forgetful. Several times they had to be reminded to bring our drinks. One took 30 minutes to come. This affected our flow of conversation and the experience.
It turns out my friend was documenting her culinary experience for New York Magazine. We struggled really hard how to put a positive, or at least neutral spin on this experience but it was hard. All in all, I regret picking this spot for us to meet up, and generally feel we didn't get a good experience. In the write up, she was neutral, but I would not recommend this place.
In retrospect, a quick drink at the bar may have been a better deal.
We had a really great night! Service very attentive, food super seasonal and surprising (we took the tasting menu) and the decor is stunning too. From a European perspective we were a bit surprised by the fast pace (hardly any time between the first 4 courses), but we asked them to slow down a bit and they were happy to accommodate.
Amazing food but service was not very attentive
Great service and food was delicious...made our anniversary extra special....highly recommend
Everything about Piora is incredible. The food, the wine, the ambience, the service. One of the best meals of my life.
Piora is a hidden gem. Everything is understated. The food is top notch, and you almost get the feeling that the chef is still striving to make it, and doesn't realize he's arrived. The service is attentive, and unpretentious. It is obvious that the people at the restaurant care about the experience of the diners. Highly recommended.
Get everything but the fried chicken. Bucatini is really good.
Delicious food, perfect service highly recommended
The service was excellent. We also enjoyed the food but found the portions were a bit smaller than we expected. Overall, lovely and what we expected.
