Each year many corporations choose Ayza as a venue for holiday parties, product launches, meetings and more.

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 complete the pictures.

Thank you for being so cautious in this time! It was a great experience to get to dine outside again. Food and cocktails were great. Fondue was a fun way to end the meal.

I randomly found the plane while looking for outdoor dining in the city. The outdoor experience was extremely beautiful and well kept with screen dividers between tables. Every dish that we ordered was beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. Definitely going back for the mango Guacamole, Avocado fries and mushroom ravioli. For dessert, the server suggested Molten Chocolate cake which was absolutely decadent. All in all a beautiful date night experience on a Friday night.

The drinks were pricey and had no liquor. The frozen margarita comes in a martini glass for $15. I had a sangria and that and neither tasted like there was liquor in them.. Food was very good and ambiance was up there.

I love this place. I’ve been here a few times in the past and I went again recently when they opened up outdoor seating. Their chocolate martinis are delicious and i had an appetizer of brie toast that had figs, berries, walnuts, brie cheese and mozzarella. It was yummy and better than expected. The wait staff here is very friendly and accommodating.

The staff were friendly and actually look at the special notes in the reservations. The birthday girl was very happy with the extra things the staff did...flower petals on the table and sparklers on the desserts. Free wine for her as well! Great experience!

This was a great restuarant to visit prior to going to see a concert at Madison Square Garden - we booked for 5:45 (to enjoy last 15 minutes of Happy Hour) and left at 7:15pm to walk the two blocks to MSG.

The food was some of the best we've eaten during our week long stay and included Filet Mignon cooked to perfection and Chilean Sea Bass preceded by a set of lovely dips and crudites sharing tray.

Would recommend to anyone visiting New York but best to book in advance.

60th birthday table decked out with rose petals, a glass of Prosecco on the house for birthday individual. Great waitress believe her name was Gabriella. Food excellent, from the guacamole to dumplings, sliders, lollipops and tacos. All great finger foods, finished with a Chocolate Martini best we ever had, and chocolate covered strawberries with a sparkler lit for my Birthday. Great experience will definitely be back and recommend to everyone!

My reservations were for 9:00 I arrived early because I was told Not to be late .. or risk losing my place . We were not seated till 9:45 and food not received till 10:25. I get it’s a busy night but NO ONE talked to me, and when I asked I felt just brushed off

Ayza is my favorite restaurant but Valentine’s Fay 2020 was overpriced. They charged $20 more per person and gave less than what was provided in years past, such as champagne and strawberries or chocolate wine. They also deducted the filet mignon, but charged more money. Very disappointed. I will not make another reservation for Valentine’s Day again.

Food was excellent! Way too expensive for a Valentine’s Day date especially for the dark lighting and not so great service.
