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.

It began very good the ambiance saved this location. The food was good but ive had better brunch food in my life. We ate in the molley trolley which was super cool. Now for the not so good… we told our waitress hey my husband is allergic to nuts now I believe she was confused but regardless she was informed then the food came it was not the most amazing food other than the arepa and the avocado fries. My husband goes to eat the salad and low and behold nuts.. he is not deathly allergic so he had to run to CVS to get an allergy medication.

Fun night out with friends. Love that they greet you with a small mulled wine shooter to warm you up. Chocolate martini is excellent and we enjoyed a bunch of small plates. Service was very good but it took some getting used to placing your order on line versus with a server. However placing the order via the app allows you control over spacing your meal out so that was an upside.

Super disappointing experience. Brought my boyfriend here as a surprise for his birthday and was genuinely embarrassed by how bad the experience, wine list, and food were. Aside from the food and wine being generally poor quality, the prosciutto on our cheese board was straight up spoiled. It was the first time I’ve ever sent back food at a restaurant. The bad meat completely killed our appetite. When we told the server, he offered to comp the $9 prosciutto portion of the board.

Although we were most excited about the dessert and cocktails, we decided to leave after the app and cheese board. Overall, the menu is wildly overpriced for the quality of the food and wine. Luckily my boyfriend was a good sport, but I felt mortified that I brought him here for a special occasion. Would not recommend.

Ayza exceeded my expectations! The chocolate strawberry martini was the best drink I have ever had! It was delicious! The wine flight (red wines and dark chocolate) was so much fun and it was so good! The chocolates were better than I thought they were going to be! We sat inside but honestly any location (the covered patio and trolly) is so cute and brings amazing atmosphere. Inside was beautiful. It was dark with a lit up ceiling. Very romantic. The staff were super polite and attentive, yet allowed us to sit and take our time and relax! This was mine and my boyfriend’s favorite place of our weekend getaway! We have been telling all our friends and family about how good it is! We will definitely be back!

They have contactless pay and order now so you never know who your server was. Every time we asked for something it felt like we were annoying whoever was dropping off food. I would not go back at this time with this type of experience. It felt more like a takeout restaurant and should not for the high prices.

December 9th, 2021. Was literally my first night and first meal ever in NYC. Saw this place the week before and made a reservation because it looked really good. Well… the food was. The whole ordering over the phone thing but also being waited on was confusing and was not explained but I was willing to roll with the punches. Not sure if it’s always like that with ordering but the bigger issue was, why they kept their reservations that night when they had given the entire restaurant to a private party. Everyone was squished so tightly into the bar/bathroom area that I felt unsafe, there were obvious capacity issues taking place but they didn’t want to lose out on money. I ended up upset, and almost crying because I felt terrible about the choice of restaurant I had made and I felt a panic that my entire stay would be ruined. I was very wary and anxious when we had a meal the rest of the time.

This was the worst dining experience I've ever had. First, they don't take your orders (this is fine, been to places like this) but the website you scan at the table allows you to place orders. This didn't work us, and the waitress said it typically doesn't for Mastercard. You need to let customers know that this is likely ahead of time. How do you use a system that doesn't work for a major card company like that?

Additionally, I made a reservation for 3 and they put us at a bar table obviously designed for 2. When I brought it up with management, he LIED straight to my face and told me that I picked that table, when in fact I didn't pick any table. I was seated at a bar with barstools facing a wall. I couldn't even look at the people I was eating with. What a joke. This table should not be marketed as a table for 3, but a table for 2. It's just a cheap and disingenuous way for them to get more people in the door.

Finally, when the website used to take orders didn't work, the waitress came over and took our orders and got literally everything wrong. For 3 people, they forgot two of our appetizers and one of our main course items. When we told them this, they just kept saying "sorry" but not offering to take the food back or make things right. They just wanted us to roll with it. Only when we walked up to the main desk to demand to speak to their manager did we actually get some attention. The manager did apologize and comp the joke of a dinner we had, but the seating arrangement, disingenuous description of the table we were sitting at, and the overall service left an awful taste in my mouth. I've been in wait staff, so I know when to be forgiving and when to stand up for yourself. This was definitely the latter. Food was average but way too overpriced given the quality and the portion sizes. Come here for a cute martini for a one-on-one date, but not much else.

We had a good experience thanks to the manager offering to take our order and we received personal service. I am not a fan of ordering from an app and then having a payment system set to 18%+ tip - normal menus and waiters should be the norm again. I spend enough time on the phone all day to then study menu on the phone for 15 minutes. Otherwise the wine and the food was excellent. If music was added to the outside trolley it would be even better.

Had a double date after dinner to enjoy some chocolatey chocolate. Unfortunately, the hot chocolate (the reason for going) was out of stock. Regardless, the chocolate was delicious- highly recommend the cakes and the fondue. Ended up getting 2 orders of fondue for 4 people, but 1 should be "enough," BUT THERE'S NEVER AN ENOUGH WHEN IT COMES TO CHOCOLATE!

This is my 3rd time there and I was pretty disappointed this time around. The service wasn’t great. Apparently, I had a reservation and when I arrived to the restaurant, I stood there for a few minutes and no one says a thing to me. They assumed I was a food delivery person. Not that it’s wrong to be a food delivery, but they should be welcoming everyone the same. They also messed up my drink order twice.

Chocolate and Wine delicious. Food was not worth the price. Their online system isn’t quite up and working. We got our meals, then the appetizer. Staff was very friendly. And the atmosphere was beautiful. Just wasn’t worth the $200 price tag for 2 people. I don’t mind paying that for a fantastic meal and experience but this just wasn’t and I was disappointed because we were in NY for my birthday and I chose this as my birthday dinner.
