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

We were pleasantly surprised at the new additional space they erected - an old bus. It was nice and safely set up. The decor was chic. The only difference was that we had to order and pay online when placing our order for that space. It was seamless after that. The food was served quickly and service was excellent! We were a group of 3 and we ordered to share. We had the French toast, mushroom omelette, smoked salmon avocado toast and the short ribs. We also had coffee and Prosecco. For Brunch, it certainly was a pleasant dining experience as this was also our 1st time back in the city. Thanks Ayza!

We were really impressed with the wine selection and the truffle pizza was amazing. The sign needs to be more obvious that it’s the wine and chocolate bar. We’re deaf so there was some confusion when we placed our orders but they quickly fixed it and gave us chocolate covered strawberries for the confusion. I would go there again.

I would never dine here again. I’ve eaten here many times prior to today and it ruined my experience, I would absolutely never go back. All the workers were rude, the food was incredibly mediocre/not good, as well as the wagyu burger being absolutely awful then having to pay for it. The service was absolutely awful and the workers were incredibly passive aggressive. We were here for a special occasion of family friends visiting and Ayza absolutely ruined it. Overpriced for mediocre food. I can’t believe the included gratuity and 3% for the worst experience.

Had dinner here tonight for the first time and loved the food, drinks, and the overall ambience. We chose to sit in the outdoor trolley which was a unique dining experience. For food we tried the white truffle pizza and the seared tuna burger (which was AMAZING). I got a classic chocolate martini which was a super fun drink and strong but not too strong, with great chocolate flavors and shaved chocolate on top. It was also served with a chocolate truffle. For dessert we tried the chocolate earthquake cake which was delicious. The servers were very friendly and our order came out very quickly. Overall an excellent experience and would definitely come back here!

"Post-pandemic" NYC restaurants are complicated things, as each business is allowed a certain amount of leeway in determining how to maintain safe environments. This extends to everything from whether or not you need to wear a mask when entering the establishment, whether or not you get a paper menu, and how service is handled. In the case of AYZA as of May 27, 2021, those friction points get a little tricky. To see a menu, you scan a code with your phone. That's fine. To order, however – at least outside – you have to mask up and go to the entrance and place your order (drinks, food etc) with a host/hostess. That's not bad for two people, but I can see it becoming difficult with large parties. The server then brings your food and drinks. If you want more food and drinks, you have to repeat the process. This DOES make paying the bill easier: you don't have to flag anyone down.

Food. Shared the ahi tartare and the white truffle pizza: both were excellent. No complaints there. My companion had an almond chocolate martini and a chocolate martini, which they enjoyed. I don't drink, so I had a virgin mojito, which was just fine.

I'd gladly come back here.

Overall the experience was great. We sat inside and at about 8:10pm, they pretty much turned the lights off which was the only negative thing I can say. We were in the corner so it truly was very dark.

Otherwise, the food was great and everything came very quickly. Would recommend the prickly pear mezcal cocktail if you aren’t there for wine or their spread of chocolate themed martinis.

For food, we ordered the tuna tartare, white truffle pizza, burrata and avocado fries, all of which were enjoyed by everyone in our party.

Would definitely recommend!
