Artist Sinem Disli invites you to dine under the stars. We are bringing the starlight indoors with the help of 33 handmade iridescent yellow light fixtures, arranged artfully with a gentle slope of the night sky. The yellowish-white color has been declared to be the average color of the universe in 2009, after the scientists had analyzed the light from 200.000 galaxies, formed by stars individually indistinguishable by the naked eye. The artist captured that warm beige shade with yellow LED lights in 6 different sizes, which are then arranged in the shapes of 33 constellations.

Ayza was a great choice for our weekend brunch in Manhattan. The food was good, portions were generous, chocolate martinis were tasty, and the service was excellent. My wife and I had visited Ayza years ago and will likely visit again in the future.

A first but not the last experience.
Option presented to sot inside, outside or in the trolley.
Brunch with options for me and my vegetarian sister. I savored the French toast and she had an omelet.
I had a glass of Sangria and she a couple of strawberry chocolate martinis.

Absolutely loved our experience. In a time when service is limited and we need to remain more patient, my group found the staff to go above and beyond in every part of our 2-hour brunch. They were so accommodating, fast, and wonderful. Then add the amazing cocktails and dishes and the beautiful ambiance and we had a wonderful time. Thank you!

The food was awesome and the wine was great. However there is no real interaction between waiter/waitress and customer. I did see other staff checking on customers but I did not receive that same service. The restaurant is small but very nice. They also have outdoor dining and a cute trolley. I probably would not return due to the customer service which is something I am very big on.

This is an experience. I recommend getting a lot of small plates and ending with a chocolate plate. Perfect place to have small bites and have conversations. The trolly outside seating is so unique i would ask for that for my table again.

We ordered the house salad and the description was completely different from what we got. I send it back but didn't get a refund since with the new system we paid in advance. Also the new system to order is great when friend are ordering in but not that friendly to request modifications (ie. sauce on the side, no basil, etc). Also no information about allergies or gluten free foods!!! This was very important for us!!

Honesty not a fan of these order yourself applications. if the customer has to do all of the work in ordering and then pay out before anything begins, service better be impeccable and in fact it was just okay. I understand COVID precautions are important and other restaurants have adopted similar systems, but in my opinion the system takes away from the dining experience.

I've been to Ayza numerous times over the years. I scheduled my most recent visit on Sept 16th to celebrate the birthdays of three family members, who's birthdays are all very close together. I knew Ayza would be a special treat that would make their birthdays feel special, and I was right. The food, wine and cocktails were amazing, and we were treated to the best service! We all had a wonderful time.

I've loved coming to AYZA for years and supporting their return from the pandemic, and I'll definitely continue to returning! But, FYI, there is a new system for ordering though is a little frustrating: you order your food through an app, but you can't start a tab for your table. For example: for you to start with drinks, you'd order the drinks and/or appetizers, fully pay and close out the tab, then have to go in again to order entrees or dessert, pay fully again, etc. If you're with a group, it either causes for multiple charges to your payment method, or you take tons of extra time to have everyone decide upfront every item they want and guess how many rounds of drinks you'd like for the evening which doesn't feel as organic when catching up with friends.

We love going to AYZA and have dined here several times. This time the food and drinks were great as always but we had a bug in our red wine issue. Four glasses of wine, 4 bugs! The manager said it happens with the red wine since one of their walls is plants. Not sure of the reason but was disappointed that after 4 bugs the Manager didn’t even comp us a glass. Only exchanged each glass that had 2 sips out of it with a much less pour. It was almost like he was annoyed this kept happening to us. Either way he could have handled it better and it wasn’t out fault nor were we going to drink with with bugs!

First and foremost, the food and drinks were amazing, particularly the Peppermint Chocolate Martini. My date expected it to taste poorly, but almost chugged it down after the first sip. But the service was also great. Arriving 15 mins ahead of our reservation, the hostesses were extremely accommodating if finding an available table. And when we ordered more drinks at once (two) than allowed for one person at a time, the server did't make us feel bad. She instead brought out the drinks (ordered and paid for through an app that allows you to access the menu and payment system via QR Code from a cell phone), and very gently reminded us of the policy (which she ascertained we didn't know). The lime marinated tacos were amazing. I would definitely recommend trying this place to anyone seeking a cool outdoor vibe with great service.
