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.

We loved this restaurant. The wine list is incredible. I started out the octopus and it was wonderfully cooked and I paired it with a Rose. For the main course I had a veal chops prepared medium rare and was so tender and juicy and paired with a Pinot noir. Excellent dinner and highly recommended. The staff was wonderful and they know the menu well.

Impeccable service. We order the five course menu and was devine. Starts with crudo and caviar, next house made Spaghetti, then Lamb (the best), manchego cheese and Chocolate dessert. We love and recommend the experience.

El ambiente está bien, pero las mesas están muy juntas y son muy pequeñas para un restaurante con estrella Michellin, uno se esperaría estar más cómodo y no tener que escuchar la conversación de sus vecinos. La comida está muy rica, aunque los champiñones estaban salados. En el tema de los vinos se les fue la mano, tienen una gran lista pero los precios son muy altos para los vinos que ofrecen. Un vino que otro buen restaurante te cuesta entre $80 y $100 usd, aquí lo tienen en $160 usd por ejemplo. Uno sabe que va a pagar caro en un restaurante así, pero no se vale: que ofrezcan mejores vinos por $200 usd ó que le bajen 40% a sus precios. Saludos.

One of the best restaurants in the city. Food ranges from very good to superb. Wine list is excellent and the sommelier is even better. Bar scene is quite noisy for a restaurant of this quality and the tables inside the restaurant near to the bar are unacceptably loud.

Food was very good as was service, but a bit overpriced in my estimation compared to other high end restaurants. Enjoyed Ristorante Morini, part of the same restaurant group, more at less cost, although a more traditional menu. Thought the wine list was quite overpriced. Many of the labels are not well know so hard to compare prices with other restaurants. Still, we did enjoy the meal, as well as a breakfast we also had there.

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.

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.
