We ate here late, after the theatre, and the food service was quick and delicious, with a good range of options. Reasonably priced wine, and a lovely heated area on the street - kept us warm despite it being freezing outside! Highly recommended.
Everything we ate here was beyond delicious. I found things that were gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free and they were awesome. Beautiful presentation. Not badly priced.
This is a great restaurant. The food and service were great. My only complaint is that we were seated next to the zippered entrance. It was freezing outside and as peopled entered, we got a blast of the arctic every time. No one zips it back either, so I got up about 7 times to zip it back before asking to be moved. We loved our experience otherwise.
Great appetizers. Excellent service.
The staff is always friendly and professional. The lunch prix-fixe is a great value. Ample wine and drink selection - raspberry chocolate martini is the best one. Great for business and personal occasions. I can’t wait until it’s warm enough to fully enjoy their outdoor space again!
Fast friendly service with great food.
Fun & delicious.
Great happy hour selection.
The chocolate fondue is amazing!
The food was incredible! The avocado steak fries, mushroom ravioli, and mint chocolate martini were amazing!
The food was delicious and the wine was excellent. The chocolate from Jacques Torres, was great. They also had a heated outdoor area that was very comfortable and warm in February. I'll be sure to return here.
Great service and food. Very accommodating host.
Loved the tapas and desserts menu. I was thinking they would spend a minute or two giving us recommendations of what paired well together. Unfortunately we had a young waitress who just wasn't very friendly. If you had another wait staff I'm sure this would be a fantastic place to grab a bite before or after a show, for a date or special occasion. Overall, slightly disappointing and with a little effort could turn that completely around.
Food and drinks were great. Had to wait almost 15 minutes after sitting to place order, but other then that it was good.
Always a great time, great drinks and yummy food.
Good food. Nice Chocolate Martinis, but a bit too sweet. Place was very crowded, seems like they should have reduced atleast 2 tables instead of packing people in like sardines...Hostess was unfriendly and stressed in the beginning, probably because our seats weren't available.
My reservation was for Valentine's Day. There was a misunderstanding between me and the restaurant. I was told a few days prior that the dessert menu would be the same, but upon getting to Ayza we were given only a course menu. So we asked the manager if there would be a separate dessert menu, and he rudely told us no and that it was our fault for misunderstanding and for not answering a call (which I didn't even receive) rather than plainly explaining the situation. I thought he could've handled it more politely and professionally. He pretty much ruined the atmosphere of a perfect date night & an otherwise decent place.
We went to AYZA for Valentines Day, which was extremely busy and it felt like the meal was very rushed. We weren't even finished with our courses, when the staff brought out the next course. I realize that the place was busy and many people needed to be seated, but a romantic meal should not feel so rushed. In addition, the food was not great, so it felt over-priced in the end. I may return to give it another shot, but not the best first impression.
Server never came to serve. I had to actively look and ask for utensils, drinks, etc. it was difficult to find my server and it was not even that busy
It was a great place to go with my date. We had an awesome time from the appetizers, drinks to the main course. I will definitely be going back.
Love this place! The staff is always great and the food is fantastic. Only problem this time was a table full of young kids who were ridiculously loud, and 3 sets of parents who were even louder than their kids. Not the fault of the restaurant and I felt sorry for the waitress. I still wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ayza - one of my favorites.
Great, happy hour wine great deals weird they do a last call at 630 for happy hour though
The employees were a little rude
This is the restaurant where I proposed to my wife 3 years ago. She and I loved it: cozy and fun with great choices of drinks and chocolates. Our waitress was kind enough to give us some anniversary bubbly on the house. We'll definitely go back more often!
A fun place to eat and stay warm! What could be better than wine and chocolate??!! And the food's good too!
Hostess was great! Had made reservation for 5 but a 6th person ended up joining us at the last minute. She occomodated our group with a smile and a warm welcome.
Our server was equally professional and pleasant.
Food was delicious and importantly: Affordable for grad students on a workshop weekend! Definitely recommend this restaurant.
Amazing!! We decided just to get apps, a cheese board and of course dessert. It was the perfect decision. No clear winner between the apps, all were full of flavor. Service was great, very quick and efficient and friendly! We finished with an espresso martini and couldn’t be happier. Will 100% be back!
Fun and exciting!
We came for wine and chocolate and ended up having cheese first. Great service, cozy tables like in Europe, which was fun! Unique choices and a really nice evening.
My fault, we where 20 minutes late for our reservation. !st time to NYC and didn't plan accordingly for the traffic. Food was excellent however because I was late, we were placed in the outdoor section. The heat lamps were so hot that we had only a drink and an appetizer. Again, food was great as was the service however try to avoid the heat lamps outside.
Love this place. The food has tons of flavor. The service is always friendly. This is a small place so it can be a bit tight but the food & service makeup for the lack of space.
I highly recommend that everyone who works here smile from time to time. I have never been to a place where every person you encounter is having a really bad day.
We had a great meal, what a wonderful place, looking forward to coming back.
We found this place serendipitously and are so glad we did! The wine and cheese selection is perfect for a relaxed snack, and the apps were very tasty (my husband raved about the white truffle pizza and I loved the chicken tacos). Our server was also fast and friendly. We will defintiely be back!
We had a lot of fun. The food comes in big shareable portions. Deff recommend the Chocolate martinis. :D
The wine selection was good, the food was very good, and I enjoyed the chocolate.
I will be definitely coming back !!! Loved everything
There is inside seating and outside seating. Yes, even in winter. If you don’t want to freeze your butt off or get stuck at outside seating (plastic that zips and unzips open) I would recommend you specify your seating location in your reservation and call to confirm. I would have been livid if we were seated outside. Mulled wine was good and not overly sweet, but the housemade hot chocolate wasn’t anything special or worth the price.
We went with our friend. Cozy outside sitting, delicious food and good drinks 💜💜
I was *so impressed* with the front of house staffperson - she knew I was there for a special occasion (best friend's b-day) and she asked if we were okay waiting a little extra time for our table (we got there early) so that we could have a more quiet corner. They also had a sparkler in the cake and our waitress Sam was a sweetheart who made some great recommendations off the menu. It was a great evening and a wonderful way to treat a dear friend. And I was so full of delicious dark chocolate fondue by the end that I had to roll myself home! (!!!)
The options at Ayla are great, be ready for a cramped restaurant though. The tables are about as small as possible, so when we both had ordered a drink and two options for food, it was nearly impossible to fit it all on the table. The waiting staff came by every now and again to check on us. The clean up staff however, tried to take our food while we were still eating over and over again. Overall, the food was good (nothing special) and the wine options were ok.
The place was a bit loud but what I disliked was this zipper door which was pretty annoying
The service was impressive. From the moment we walked in & throughout the ball, the waitress was attentive. Our glasses were always full. We ordered the cheese/meat plate & couple is appetizers. The food are of quality & very tasty! It would be hard to accommodate a large crowd but a night out with your gals is fun!
