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.

Absolutely loved the service and happy hour! Would recommend as an outdoor dining experience as it is pretty warm with the heaters and felt completely safe. Would definitely recommend the tropical sangria! For food, we had the white truffle pizza, avocado fries, Wagyu burger, and angry chicken lollipops - all were tasty and would revisit to try again. LOVED the chocolate molten lava cake with the ice cream - the best I have ever tasted.

We had brunch outdoor on a December Sunday during COVID times. The outdoor heated seating was really great. We were comfortable in the outdoor area and didn't need our jackets because the heating was so nice. The tables were separated by hanging dividers and it felt like they made the most of the space that they had, while being safe and distant. It was a little weird that you had to order your food from the hostess area, even though they would still bring everything to your table, but we didn't mind doing that. We had a great time and I'd definitely recommend this spot, especially for outdoor dining in the winter. Just to note, the brunch portions were a little small, but we each got a dish and then shared something and it was perfect.

Oh so where should I begin.... First of all we had reservations @ 9 and had to wait at least 15 minutes to be seated. Keep in mind that ALL dining shuts down at 10pm due to COVID. Well we ordered all of our food at one time, and did this quickly as we were pressed for time. It was getting close to 10 and we reminded the lady who was taking orders that we still had not received our chocolate fondue. She told us no worries that we would get it shortly. At 10 pm our check was brought to the table. We again, stated that we had not received our fondue, which was listed on our check and would not settle our bill until it was brought to us or removed from the total. She stated no worries we will get that right out. We received our fondue @ 10:15. Someone who appeared to be the manager came to our table and rudely stated that we needed to finish in FOUR MINUTES and leave. Excuse me, what??

This has to be the most unprofessional establishment I have ever been in, COVID or not. Maybe you should not take reservations beyond 830 pm to ensure your patrons receive their food and are treated with courtesy when dropping $200 for your food and NO service which was what we received.

I apologize for not getting this right. Clearly, this isn't our norm, and not what you hoped for. We've already held a meeting and taken precautions to better ourselves as a company and to improve our customer experiences in similar situations. If you allow me I'd like to extend you a gift for your next visit. Can you pls email me at zaf@ayzanyc.comm. I'd appreciate if you give us another chance to make this right. I wish you and your family health through this pandemic Happy holidays

Disappointed in the order process. Instead of walking to the ENTRANCE and placing you order, you should be able to order from your table. Also for a crazy expensive espresso martini it could have been a whole lot better. I've had way better ones elsewhere. The pinch of coffee grounds was kinda stupid. I won't be be back.

Made a birthday reservation here this past weekend and was greeted with a delicious glass of sparkling white wine. The place itself was beautiful with the lights set up like constellations. We only had truffle fries which were pretty good. The drinks were a little bit expensive. I'd recommend the chocolate martini on their happy hour menu - it was delicious. We also had a lychee martini which was okay in my opinion. This is the only restaurant/bar I've found to have the Boschendal from South Africa and if you would care to pay 3x its price for a nice night I totally recommend it.

I was thoroughly pleased with the food, cocktails and dessert. The atmosphere however was disappointing for the price point. I felt like I dined in a small dark cement rectangle with Christmas lights. The tables were wobbly and the chairs were ragtag. I'm not sure if this is only because of COVID but the atmosphere was very disappointing.

Food and drinks were great especially value at happy hour. Made a reservation and they made us sit inside so couldn’t even enjoy the ambience. The table was weirdly positioned that we were just watching everyone in the garden. There were 2 open tables that seated 4 people located in the garden that was open the entire time but still they made us sit inside. I noticed later they let a 2 person group sit in the 4 person table. Manager felt a bit rude and avoided eye contact with us.
