Great food ! Waiter excellent. Hostess poor. We had a party of four, we two were seated and told the hostess to tell the others to be shown to table. They were told we had not arrived and had to call us on our mobile to inform us they were waiting for us. Poor follow though!

Service and food were both very good. Menu provided many nice options. Restaurant was comfortable and welcoming. It was busy and a little noisy early on, but not so much that it bothered us.

Had a business dinner scheduled and we ended up running late. I called the restaurant to move our reservation and add a person. They were very accommodating. Food was great! There was so many people taking care of our table, all of our needs were met instantly.

Our second time eating here. The first time a a pleasure which is why we returned, but not this time. The difference was the outrageously poor service. It started with the drink order. There were 6 of us : 2 bar drinks and a bottle of wine. The 2 bar drinks came in good order but we had to ask 2 times over 30 minutes for our bottle of wine, which was served warm and was not cold as it should have been. After a while we had to ask a busboy to get our waiter so that we could order our food. He told us the specials and I asked the price of one and was told the quote. When the bill came, it was priced $5 higher, but I digress. We then ordered and within an appropriate while, 2 of our appetizers were served. It took 10 minutes for the other four to be served. What happened to all diners get served at the same time? The mains came out together and with one exception, all were excellent. One, which was not on the menu (chicken marsala), was tasteless with no marsala flavor. As the evening drew to a close, our original waiter disappeared and another took over. Because of him, I gave the SERVICE 1 star. I would like to believe that this experience was the exception and not the rule. I'll report on our next visit.

Skip the menu and let the waiter tell you all the specials and order from him. Very accommodating to share family style any dish although that's not what they're known for. Great food but don't expect a lot of pasta just becuase it's an Italian place!

Went to see a broadway show and this is a great replacement for Carmine’s . This place has better food and better service than Carmine’s. I highly recommend this as a great dining experience while seeing a show or visiting midtown Manhattan.

 (Las Vegas)·Dined on December 16, 2017

My wife and I recently ate dinners at Arnos Restaurant last Saturday. We decided to splurge on a meal before attending the theater. We decided on Arnos due to the relative closeness to Times Square. It was less than a ten minute walk to the show.

We booked only a day before the show which usually is a problem. However, we got a perfect dinner slot of 6:00 pm. Upon arrival we were greeted at the door by the hostess who immediately took care of request to sit in the main seating area.

Our waiter was more than gracious in walking us through their large menu selection. The appitizers and food came out promptly ensuring us of making the theater on time.

The Italian food was excellent along with the entire ambiance of the venue. I would highly recommend Arnos for anyone looking for an upscale dinner experience near Times Square. The food and drinks are a little pricey but how many times do you get a night out in Manhattan.

Arnos is worth the money for pleasant evening of fine dining.

Party of twelve got ripped off by a creepy waiter and by extension the owner. He padded our bill. He brought vegetables "for the table" which no one ordered. At $13.00 per plate that was steep. Then he brought 6 snifters of sambuca. When I asked who ordered the sambuca the waiter said "I take care of you." Showed up as an $80.00 charge. We ordered coffee and dessert. Dessert came out. No coffee. Fifteen minutes after the dessert plates were cleared they brought out the coffee. $1200.00 for 12 people! This is not a hundred dollar a person restaurant. They're disorganized, dismissive, and dare I say criminal. It was our holiday dinner and we really didn't want a scene. Well I wanted to call the police but clearer heads prevailed. We are locals and I can't imagine what they do to tourists. Stay away. If you don't believe me and go please check every charge. They are slippery and creepy. Food wasn't bad. Although someone said the steak was like a salt lick.

The food was delicious but the noise level was worse than sitting next to DJ at a wedding-unable to speak, tables so close together waiters and patrons bumping into chairs constantly. Wait staff flying around at a race pace. Not relaxing at all.

While we were seated as soon as we arrived for our reservation by a pleasant hostess, the service turned for the worse after that. It took 12 minutes for our waiter to bring us a menu and another 5 minutes before we were asked for a drink. The food was very good, we both got different veal dishes which were excellent. We didn't get the waiters name, but he appeared to be bored and at times rude. Would go back for the food and ask for a different waiter.
