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. Blue iridescent bulbs, sprinkled throughout, represent 12 zodiac constellations and 55 golden candle holders compl

Hands down our favorite eatery in NYC. Cozy, intimate, and so unique! We always makes sure to stop in whenever we are in the city - if not for dinner than for drinks / desserts. The food and drinks are all excellent and the service is always exemplary. Angel Campos always takes special care of us when we visit and makes us feel at home!

Went here for brunch for my boyfriend’s birthday and it was really great. Though i was hoping to sit in the trolley, it was overall a good experience. Only downside was that our table was extremely unbalanced – we had to be very careful in not tipping over our drinks. The food was great and so was the service. We got french, toast, avocado toast, and arepas. So good! We also checked in on yelp to get a free sangria, so that was cool. Would definitely come again

Restaurant charges an extra 3% tax for “Covid”
Purposes. I use think this percentage was split between the staff but it’s not. On top of that you are pretty much your own to order your food, drinks you must go to the hostess.
I will return once this Covid surcharge is gone.

Came here for my birthday the other night, and had a very nice time! It’s difficult to say anything negative, because the staff is so incredibly friendly. Service was perfect, they really were excellent in service. Drinks were to die for, we were all blown away on that! But sadly, when it came to the food, it got disappointing. The burrata wasn’t really a burrata, and more like a bug piece of mozzarella. The tacos were more like two big taquitos. And as for the white truffle pizza, we couldn’t even eat it, it was cold and just bad, like a sad ellios frozen pizza that was mushy and cheap. I suppose they are called Ayza wine & chocolate, not Ayza wine & chocolate & food... so I would come again for the cocktails and desserts, but certainly go elsewhere for eating a meal. Or anything other than the charcuterie.

Had reservations and was seated right away. The space is a little tight, but they do have plastic dividers between all the tables. I was surprised when the waiter told us we had to place our orders at the counter instead of just taking it from us at the table. Like they serve you your food and bring you your bill to the table, why not take your order like all other sit down restaurants? But besides this one flaw, this place was great. My party split several different appetizers and we got different cocktails, all of which were great. The serving sizes were good and everything was cooked well. I’d highly recommend the tuna tartare and the avocado fries. However, the truffle pizza had no truffle.

Overall, I would definitely return to this establishment.
