We booked this last minute, trying to find a restaurant near Madison Square Garden before a concert. We wanted a date night feel, but had to rush. This was perfect. Really neat, tiny spot. We shared a bunch of the appetizers and loved all them. Wine list was great. Wait staff was so nice. We will definitely come back!
Loved the chocolate martinis!
Really good food, good service. The only downside was that it was a little noisy.
Everything is always delicious here. The mushroom ravioli is incredible, and the peppermint martini tasted like a minty milkshake! Amazing!
Great food, convenient, outside seating is quiet. Staff is accommodating
Excellent restaurant my girlfriend and I came here for our 2 yr anniversary and 3 yrs later we just had to come back and what a lovely 5 yr Anniversary date we had we love ayza!
I wasn’t to thrilled with my food. It wasn’t horrible but not great. The pannis were ehhh. Pork sliders were okay. I had to choose from the appetizers because there wasn’t much to choose from the entrees. I would say it’s more a lunch spot.
Food was pretty good, nice Atmosphere. However our sever was practically nonexistent, and they served red wine cold, not chilled but like out of a refrigerator cold.
Love Ayza! I always have a great time here. The service is great, and the chocolate martini's are fantastic. I didn't get food this time but they've expanded their food menu over the years and it's really tasty.
Included a note asking for quiet-ish spot with my reservation. Turns out, there was no such thing. There were three women two tables away that were there when we arrived (already tipsy), and were there until we left. There were not just talking, they were scream-talking the entire time. Brought a friend out for her birthday, catching up before I move out of town. Really frustrating. Service was exceptional. I think they should have charged us 1/2 price, or just gotten the women out of there. It was like some drunken bar at 2am.
Fantastic food and even better service, it was busy and sometimes slightly slow which is understandable however the waitress we had was fantastic. Would definitely recommend and come back.
Took a while to get our drinks and to order our food. Service was kind of meh.
A must for us when in New York....a hot spot for the younger crowd and active older folks like us but enjoyable...My wife's beef skewers were very good and I have to say my lamb chops were the best I have ever had...but the real reason we always come here is the Chocolate Martini...absolutely the best on the planet!!! Thanks for a great dinner/evening.
Excellent spot to chill and have appetizers and a glass of wine. Superb happy hour.
I have a severe shrimp allergy and the staff were incredibly attentive to it. I had put it into my reservation note, and our server asked about it before even taking our order. Much, much appreciated.
Not a good spot for brunch. Great for after work dinner and drinks
If you love chocolate and wine this will make you smile. Food was excellent but chocolate martinis and desserts were AWESOME. Great pairing options as well as many sweets to discover. Perfect for girls night out, date night, or pick me upper! Charming patio.
Great casual/intimate place for a catch-up with a friend.
Original, nice and enjoyable the 20 layer crepes cake is outstanding!
Loved the food and the wine! Chocolate molten lava cake was a lovely end to the night!
We had a party of 3... excellent waiter, very friendly and positive. We had drinks, appetizers and dinner... again, excellent value. A real find. Highly recommend.
Good vibe every time we go to Ayza. Great healthy food, music, drinks etc.
We went here for a birthday and it was great! They put petals on the table and brought chocolate covered strawberries with a candle in it. It was above and beyond and we really enjoyed the experience! Great happy hour, great staff. Definitely going back to this place often :)
It's fine. This is a first date spot and girls night out spot for people coming in from Jersey. The wines they offer by the glass are mediocre ones because they assume their customers will not be able to tell the difference and the cheap wine increases the profit margin. Wasn't bad but nothing was particularly good either.
Our server, Tiffany, was splendid and very helpful with menu and wine recommendations. The food was superb, no rush either. Plus, was moved under canopy when it started to spit with rain in case of a downpour. Would definitely recommend.
Place is packed Friday night and there's only one bathroom. Food is excellent as is the wine and chocolate menu. Service spotty because they're so busy but really nice. Prices are fair.
This is a very interesting place. . . . . The service is quite poor while the food is exceptional. If you are patient enough to work through the slow service (and they don't seem to care as everyone we saw had the same challenge) the food and wine are worth it. The seating is tight so you get to know your neighbors, but it has a great atmosphere to enjoy a bite.
Absolutely love this place. Their chocolate Martinis are to die for. Great service, nice staff. Food is amazing as well.
Took my friend from out of town for a girls' night out and we had an absolute blast. The food was amazing and we both left with major food babies. Highly recommend the fondue and chocolate manhattan. Be sure to make a reservation for Thursday night - it was packed! Would definitely do again, maybe with Lactaid next time.
Cute lunch special !!! But be aware, they are very small portion and that if you want to add the add ons— you must do it while you order the lunch special. You can’t do it after you’re done with the meal and want more food. Adorable chocolates and many options !!
Eating ourside is great. The terrace had fan’s keeping it cool
Great pairings of wine and chocolate, with good wine flights, chocolate margaritas, and fondue. Cute spot for a date, but service felt a bit rushed.
Always one of my favorites. The avocado fries are soooo delicious. Twenty layer crepe brûlée cake is my all time favorite dessert.
Service was amazing! Food was phenomenal. The waitress helped choosing drinks, and attended to the table very well and professionally. It was a 10/10 experience, would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for good food, and loves chocolate! It’s great for all occasions as well as casual everyday dining!
We booked a last minute table for a bachelorette for some wine and a small bite. The food was delicious. We all loved the White truffle pizza and the cheese selection was excellent. The food portions were on the smaller side for the price. The wine list is lovely. At the end of the meal they brought over amazing chocolate covered strawberries for the bride and the rest of our party. Would definitely recommend this cozy place!!
Amazing for chocolate lovers
I love this place.. the chocolate Martinis are to die for... food is great!! Very nice and welcoming place.
Che bel posto! Cocktail eccezionali e cibo molto originale e sfizioso. La cameriera che ci ha servito era un vero tesoro professionale e cordiale!
Went for a post birthday dinner celebration. Service was terrible had to flag down the one waitress working at least 10 times. All the food was brought out like-warm and tasted terrible. Almost like they microwaved it for a minute and gave it to us. Overall, terrible experience will definitely never go back and will write a more detailed review on yelp later tonight. Definitely just go to a place like max brenner instead. Same prices, way better food and quality.
We have been here about ten times and it never disappoints! Food and service are always excellent! It gets crowded, so always make reservations. Perfect for foodies and wine connoisseurs.
