What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.7

We typically love ourselves some Michael White. Though his new hotel restaurant Ai Fiori is a sprawling space with more room than they know what to do with. Set inside The Setai, this is a bit of a cookie cutter hotel restaurant - one that isn't bad, but just isn't quite our style.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

I had an excellent meal (Italian fare) but my wife was disappointed in her choices. It is expensive but no more so than any good restaurant in NYC.

23rd anniversary dinner, and the experience was amazing. Each course was beautifully presented and tasted delicious, service was top notch while understated. We got a wonderful gift with a card signed by all the staff, it was beyond our expectations. A true Michelin star experience!

The table seating was a little crowded with a table for 2 sitting between other tables. The larger tables seem to have more room. Ambiance was very nice and service was good although for the price I certainly expected a little more attention. The tasting menu was delicious and 7 small portions was just enough to be full. The pasta course was by far the best. Regular coffee was not included and certainly was not worth the price. I would say overall the value was less compared with other similar restaurants. Dress was classy to business casual with only 2 men wearing jackets and no one with ties. So despite the little picky items noted, overall it’s a great restaurant with delicious food if you’re willing to pay a little extra.

Overall Place is great and worth coming back although I’m not sure I’d give it the MStar rating they’ve accomplished based on our experience.

Don’t get me wrong, place is nice and food was good, but the expectations I believe one should have for a place achieving such high marks by the industry itself lead me to feel when I leave, it should be memorable enough that I clearly recall all the servings and more importantly, am going to tell everyone I know they should check out this place for an amazing experience... neither of which holds true for myself nor my 13 year old son (who does in fact have a pretty stellar pallet).

If your local to this spot and looking for a fantastic date night, business dinner and dining experience, your not going wrong by coming here. But if your considering a special trip, I’d probably consider other options.

It was just ok. It’s supposed to have gotten a Michelin star. The food was cooked ok, just not that exciting or imaginative.

My experience: I arrived was greeted and sat at my table. They give me bread that is not warm and a bit dry. Meh. Butter is at least spreadable. Good. Amuse bouche. Wonderful! I had high hopes at this point. First course soup with 4 “coins” of lobster. It’s ok. Second course veal tortellini. Sauce is good. Otherwise unexciting. Third course meat dish vitello. Bleh. So boring. Kind of tough meat. Nothing whatever interesting. For dessert the Budino. Acceptable.

Overall. Not really worth the price. That being said, the waitstaff and service in general was up to standard for this caliber of restaurant. The ambience pleasant. The food presentation, somewhat thoughtful.

We had 7 course tasting menu. I t was really amazing. Every course was delicious. huge wine list, too big for most guests. Very impressive to say the least. Service was very good as well. Only negative about the service was that they did not decant our wine. We didn't ask for it but others had their wine decanted.

We all ordered the 4-course Prix-Fixe menu. The antipasti were good, the pasta was terrific, and both the entree and dessert were fantastic! The only letdown was the service, which was wonky (for lack of a better word). For 3 of the 4 courses, our plates were mixed up (the right items were ordered, but the wrong plates were served to the wrong people). The sommelier was terrific, but the front waiter for the table kept hovering and apologizing for the plating mishaps. I wouldn't normally be so critical, but when you're spending upwards of $300 per person, these kinds of things throw the dinner and the occasion off balance, and can make things a bit awkward, pausing conversations, and making us, the diner, focus on what the service staff is doing, instead of enjoying the meal and our company. We were only 5 guests, so I would be wary if coming in with a large party of say, 10 or more.

There for my daughter’s 16th Birthday. The staff was wonderful; making her feel so special. They brought out a beautiful dessert for her with her name written on it, and she received a gift bag at the end of the meal. It included homemade Carmel corn, chocolate nuts, a copy of the menu signed by the chef, and a card signed by the staff. Truly first rate service!

The food and service were excellent, but the wine list could be better for those who don't own hedge funds or want to take out a home equity loan. The veal chop was the best I've eaten, and the squid ink pasta was very tasty but skimpy on the seafood.
Our servers were delightful.

IT was ok at best. The food was good. But the attitude of the main server was not great and that caused it to be a poor experience. As someone who travels the world and dines in all kinds of places, restaurants are defined by food and service - needs both.

Not what is used to be. The service has really deteriorated. No recognition from the serving staff even though we have eaten at this restaurant no less than 30 times over the past several years. Surely they keep records of this. A simple welcome back would have been nice.
We did not get the usual bread sticks in olive oil to start even though they were given to the tables around us. The food is too salty now and yet also somewhat flavorless. I had the gnudi which tasted like paste. The pea soup did not have the taste of fresh peas. The overall quality of the ingredients has slipped. We cannot return as there are so many other excellent Italian restaurants in NYC.

This was my second time at Ai Fiori, and the first time that I did not order off the tasting menu. Everything was excellently prepared - from our starters to our main courses, we were in awe of how the seasonal flavors were so expertly highlighted. The service was impeccable. A very well curated experience from start to finish.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I have already been there 4 times in 5 months and every time it has been fabulous in every way. The food is amazing and the service is impeccable. And it is a beautiful dining room with lots of space between the tables for privacy. Lastly it is quiet so you can hear each other even when the restaurant is full. I cannot say enough positive things about Ai Fiori. I look forward to going back soon!
