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.

ai fiori ? well in Italian that means "amongst the flowers" So I presume that is Italian right? barely. The place was beautiful and the service impeccable, maybe over the top. the food not so great. We were four with my wife and son and his wife and we debated what to have at length settling on octopus as appetizer which was tender, tasteful and delicious and was barely eatable because it was extremely over salted, but because we were so hungry we at it. Italian? bread was ok but not quality of what it should have been. My son had a lobster or fish soup of a sort which was tasty but too watery more like a bisque, no body or character let alone lobster. I wanted what was featured on the menu fois gras and my son said "in an italian reataurant?" and my response was if the feature it it must be good. to my surprise when it arrived it was pate, like a slice of liverwurst. I was expecting real fresh cooked fois gras, and certainly it was overpriced exponentially. My wife was craving pasta and she and my daughter- in- law ordered angioletti pasta which were only fair, minuscule portion and certainly of insufficient quantity to quell the disease of hypopastemia. When I was ordering I was inquiring about several things on the menu, dover sole, duck and halibut and how they were cooked, and everything the matre di described extensive seasonings and nuts on them. pistachio, pine. or other unnecessary condiments sometimes distorting and overwhelming the primary ingredient. Nuts? really? italian rarely cook primo and secondi with nuts. Check it out. I settled on the halibut which was delicious and about to redeem all other comitted sins, until discovering it was barely warm and almost stone COLD. They were kind enough to not charge for the octopus which after a kitchen conference concluded that it was indeed over salted. Despite this the bill approached almost 400$. It was good but doubt there will be an encore.

When You're Looking for a WONDERFUL meal

I chose this restaurant right after reading about a New York restaurant reviewer and admiring
her ability to identify fine preparations and distinctive flavors. I was worried that we "country mice" might get a bad table or less than stellar service, but I had nothing to worry about. My husband and I sampled each other's choices and were so impressed. The fois gras was melt in your mouth perfect. The spaghetti with blue crap a marvelous melange of flavors with perfectly al dente pasta, the lobster in butter sauce melt-in-your-mouth delicious. What can I say? It was such a perfect meal in a lovely room with quietly attentive service. If you want a special meal, choose this place.

The serving staff were top notch and personable- as a single diner I truly appreciate that they were very attentive and observant. Since this restaurant just won Wine Spectator Award for 2018 I let the server recommend/choose my wine selections to go with each dish. She was phenomenal. Her choices were delicious. I loved the Torta de Ceci and the Tagliata are scrumptious as are the Pommes Dauphin- yum, the Pommes Dauphin... Then desert- the Affogato with a few dram of Amaretto was perfection.

Ai Fiori has a great atmosphere. A very classy restaurant with an elegant bar area. The duck and risotto are recommended! Pre-main course: there are several breads offered. I would recommend any of them. Small dessert bites are offered at the end of your meal as well. Great for groups or intimate dinners.

My Husband and I went to Ai Fiori for our wedding anniversary, the restaurant has a nice ambiance but it is not as romantic as we hoped as it reminds us of all hotel restaurants. The wine selection is excellent so we enjoyed a wonderful bottle of wine, however we did not enjoy our food it was very bland and my food was cold when it arrived at my table which left much to be desired. Although we did not have a good food experience I will give the restaurant credit for the excellent wine menu.

The veal is a bit Americanized in flavor and size with a slight over abundance of fatty tissue. However, the lobster entree is commendable.

To my surprise, the famous blue crab pasta was not as good as I thought. Maybe I was trying to compare it to a red prawn pasta and the taste of blue crab is not as strong as red prawns.

The lobster appetiser was good with a taste of lemon and it’s refreshing for summer

The burdino chocolate dessert was good but I don’t like the sticky texture of the chocolate.

The place still delivers excellent service. However, the restaurant week menu was disappointing. I had chicken for main course, and it felt undercooked and underseasoned. The portion was genereous for chicken. My partner had salmon and it was tiny and underseasoned too. He had to get something else when we got out of the restaurant.

One star down for stiff main server lady for our table whose head/neck barely moves, no smile, curt tone, has a catholic school headmaster feel - the rest of the staff were exceptional, as expected for a restaurant inside a hotel like the Langham. Another star down for the ridiculous pour for the wine by the glass, just slightly more than wine tasting portions, at least for prosecco. Food and ambience were great. Would come back but if I get that server again I’d ask for another, she was so irritating.

Underwhelming - nothing bad but uninspired, fairly plain food served elegantly but in stingy portions and very high prices. I’m afraid this fine place has turned into a high end chain in a hotel venue in NYC. Service was fine, professional but apparently the JV on jury with earnest but clumsy servicing of our Table. Took 20 minutes to cocktails, just as they were serving the entree so they finally brought over the cocktails and the wine at the same time. This was despite frequently coming over to say rye cocktails were on way. Presenting the courses was sincere but as stated clumsy, nearly silly.

In all forgettable.

Ai Fiori, with its a cool, open, spacious dining room, was like an oasis on a hot summer day, with a perfect view overlooking Fifth Avenue. The Restaurant Week offerings included a cold seafood salad as an appetizer, which was very satisfying, and a small but tasty portion of roasted salmon over sautéed barley served with a green bean puree - an interesting way to dress up a very simple dish. There were some momentary lapses in the otherwise attentive service, including waiting too long for the waiter to serve bread, and providing a large soup spoon for a dessert of orange spongecake. I would come back again to sample some other items on the menu.
