Nice and relaxing small restaurant. We did the cheese table with some wine and desserts, everything was very good, service was also very good and the ambient is cozy and romantic. If you are tired of manhattan's crowded and hurry up places this is a good place to stop and breath while sharing some platters. Very good value for the price as well.

What an interesting restaurant with a great valued brunch menu - including an interesting drink selection. We sat outside on the covered patio and were able to linger without getting harassed. Make sure to leave room for their spectacular desserts - we shared a couple and I highly recommend the layered crepe bruele.

Visited AYZA for brunch on a lovely day. We ate outside with the roof retracted. Food and service were excellent. We were able to speak and enjoy the afternoon. Definitely recommend.

AYZA is always a go-to place when visiting NYC. The owner is very friendly, and the chocolate martinis are a must. We always split a bunch of appetizers and then finish up with a wonderful dessert.

Our Ayza experience has gotten better and better with each time. We have come here on three occasions since 2015 for various birthday celebrations and have had our expectations exceeded every time! The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They went above and beyond to make our experiences fun and unique. It is now a tradition that we come to Ayza when in town visiting NYC! Whether it be a full dinner or drinks and apps their food is amazing and experience even better! And to top it all off their chocolate martinis are to die for! We love Ayza thank you for everything this past week❤️

My husband and I went to AYZA Wine & Chocolate Bar for lunch for the first time. They have lunch specials for $12.95-$14.95 and we both thought that they were very tasty and a good value. I also really liked how they give you a very small glass of sangria to start your experience. We both ordered the fried dumplings as our appetizer. I got the tofu for my main and my husband had the beef slider. We both really enjoyed what we got. We plan to return.

Ayza is a wonderful venue for novel food and drinks in a casual and funky setting. The small plates, custom cheese boards and chocolate martinis are especially good. Great place for sharing and enjoying a quiet meal for two or a fun outing for a group.

I came a bit late, so it was my mistake for not getting the table right away. They did forget to get me the warm plum wine they usually give out in the beginning — so that’s a bummer. But otherwise, i’ve always enjoyed my time here!

The food and wine are spectacular here, amazing quality, taste, and presentation! Be prepared to wait though, even if you already had a reservation. And be prepared to wait more as the service is very slow. Crowded and noisy. I have come back twice now though because the wines and cheese are 👌

I have been to Ayza many times and always for dinner. I had a friend visiting from UK and I decided to give brunch a shot. Overall it was not a good experience on many fronts. The brunch menu had just one sweet option which was waffles and they were already out. I wouldn't count dessert in this as I am specifically talking about brunch items like french toast, pancakes etc.
Our waitress was extremely absent minded. Firstly she forgot to bring our drinks order and when we reminded her, she asked which one it was so basically she never noted it down.
Secondly she completely forgot one item from our order and didn't even realize it. Thirdly, she forgot to note our reservation in the system though I explitly confirmed and pointed out my reservation on her screen.
The food overall was a bit disappointing as well. The omlette was just ordinary.
This being one of my fav places which I have been recommending and bringing many friends here, this time was a disappointing visit. I am definitely not coming back for brunch.

Ayza is one of my favorites for dinner, drinks, happy hour or lunch. The chocolate martinis are the best anywhere. I was there last night and have to compliment the staff. I had a reservation and was waiting for cousins from Europe that I had never met who were late. Everyone was nice and helpful, even saving the table for me so I could give my visiting family a nice NYC experience. We had a wonderful time - delicious food and drinks as always.

Food, wine, and chocolate were all amazing!! There was a bit of a wait despite having our reservation but the rest of the service more than made up for it. Surprisingly very accommodating to a vegan diet too!! Definitely recommend the chocolate wine and espresso chocolate martini. The cognac and cherry chocolate truffles were favorites too.

The food was amazing, next time we will have wine but we did have drinks and they were both made very well. The setting made the night even better. I'm so happy that we came and and I've be raving about it ever since. Thank you for an awesome night and I know we will be back very soon !! 😏

I love eating at Ayza. I took my new coworkers for lunch. Although I've never had an issue with service, I was surprised to wait 40 miutes for our lunch when we were the 3rd group of people to sit at 12:07pm. Patrons arrived after us and received their food first. We even received our appetizers after our pre-fix lunch. We ate our food quickly as we needed to head back to work. It was a bit disappointing after I raved about Ayza. The food was delicious as always.
