Staff was friendly and attentive. Food and drinks were amazing. Just wish we could see the menu, drinks and the person across the table. It was very dark and there was no lighting on the table which made it hard to see the menu.

Delicious wine and chocolate for sure! We enjoyed the dark magic flight between 3 of us, as well as the brunch menu items that were awesome. Price isn't bad for what you get with the wine flights, considering between 3 of us we each drank about 1 1/2 glasses and got chocolates too. It was a really nice setting for our book club to meet.

We ordered the wagyu sliders, angry chicken lollipops, avocado fries and dark chocolate fondue. I only liked the avocado fries. The chicken lollipops tasted more like duck and were too chewy, the dark chocolate fondue was rather bland, and the wagyu sliders were dry and tasteless. I also ordered a raspberry martini, and my friend ordered a lychee berry martini. Both were delicious and were the best part of the meal. The indoor space is tiny, but the decor is nice.

Aside from Open Table messing up my reservation (booked me under Lincoln Lake instead of Lincoln Hayes for some reason), it was a wonderful evening. We've been going to Ayza for special occasions for ten years and had a great time.

Went for a nice dinner date with my boyfriend. I always pass by the restaurant and been meaning to try it out. The wine was amazing as well as food & service. Definitely worth going for a nice date night. Or even with friends and family.

Love this place. Sandwiches (Cuban this time) and flatbreads (Margherita) were perfectly done. Good value for lunch special. We come here for lunch quite often. One of my colleagues loves it and thinks it’s the tastiest and least pretentious restaurant in NYC - just great simple food (ok, not that simple :-)
I stay at the Hyatt across the street sometimes and keep trying to get in for dinner, but it’s impossible to get a table most of the time. I presume that it’s even better for dinner.

I saw this place on many of my friends Instagram so decided to give it a shot for brunch. It was DELICIOUS! Fresh, clean food that was simple and flavorful. Their cocktails were delicious as well! 10/10 would definitely recommend.

Outside is best if you have table in corner like us
Inside too crammed and I don’t like high toppers
Server was great
Guacamole was fab
The cheese plate yummy; prefer crackers vs bread
Sliders awesome!
Took way too long to get our pieces of chocolate for dessert; first was wrong. Should’ve comp’d us for that in my opinion.

It was a great place to chill, relax, and have a glass of wine on a romantic date night. The only issue was the air conditioning as it was surprisingly hot inside, and so we had to move our table somewhere near the air. Otherwise it was a great spot.

Here at least 5 times a month! Best happy hour for wine and light appetizers. Of course, you must occasionally have the chocolate martini! The staff always greets you and is very, very friendly. Sit at bar if you can or enjoy the outdoor tables even in dead of winter. Small plates work for me and fill me up, though they do have a few larger entrees. Yes, they have wonderful chocolates by themselves and/or to pair with drinks, cheese and ice cream.

Looks cute when you get in - super small restaurant. Right after getting our drinks the lights basically went off - as apart of the ambiance. (cool looking light structure above us that was the only light source) We couldn't see our drinks, our food or my husband sitting across the table. I asked the waiter if we could turn the lights back on - and he said no that it's the managers choice for ambiance and the over head lights don't have a dimmer. That was very disappointing as this was a special date night, and the table next to us (sitting super close to us as it's a very small restaurant) was using their iphone flashlights to shine on the menu and then their food. Super distracting, right in my eyes, and NOT NECESSARY. Turn the lights on!!!! It's not a cute look when you remember how damn dark it was at dinner. Food was fine.

07/13/19: Girls Night!!! Another night at AYZA. This little spot....When I say little it is really small but packs a punch! This place is truly one of our faves. Samantha was our waitress this time and she provided excellent service by quickly placing our orders for drinks and meals didn't have to wait long for anything ! Great food, great drinks and great deserts. What more does a girl want. The best part about AYZA for me is it's location you can take a break from shopping step right in sit outside or inside with their large wine selection you can fine something for everyone. The entire staff is super nice everyone chips in to help out a little and they always remember the magic word "another" round - yes please !

Sorry forgot to take new photo's

Here is what we had:

- classic chocolate martinis
- mushroom ravioli

Ayza is a wonderful restaurant. It is a welcome place for sophisticated patrons with upscale palates. I love the food, drinks, and ambiance. The waitstaff is kind and attentive. The management is gracious. Ayza is my favorite place in the city. The restaurant was great before. However, since the renovation it had become an absolute treasure!
