    After waiting 10 minutes for the waiter to approach our table I flagged down a gentleman who was working in the restaurant. He kindly took our drink order. The rest of our experience was good but not amazing. The restaurant is gorgeous, the staff is nice but the food was not impressive, just average.

    Tonight was our second visit and sadly we had the same experience at both visits. The food at Bad Roman is fun, creative and very good. There is a real issue with the service here, exactly the same experience at both visits. Our waiter only came to our table 4 times in just over 2 hrs. I appreciate not being rushed at a restaurant but here you can’t get the time of day. Drinks sat infilled for 30 minutes, the only attention we got was from the person refilling our water. Had we been given attention, the bill would have been much larger so I think mgmt needs to really listen to this feedback. I have to say that I doubt I will be back again. It’s not worth the money to feel ignored and frustrated, despite how good the food is.

    Food was outstanding! Service was lacking. One of my guests didn't get food until we where almost done eating. The server brought him something else in the interim versus just saying I forgot to put his order in.

    We went Bad Roman for our Son In Laws Birthday From the moment we walked in the Reception was inviting, front desk staff was enthusiastic greeting us with smiles. Our Server Don was Exceptional, Greeting Us Warmly and treating our Family with Kindness and professionalism. All of Our Food from the Drinks, Appetizers, Main Courses and Desserts were a Culinary Delight. An Amazing Evening at the Bad Roman, We will Absolutely return.

    Food was good, although the garlic babka had barely any garlic flavor and could have been hotter. Was served barely warm. Pappardelle and Chitarra were great. Filet mignon meatballs very good. Service was terrible. Our server was aloof and not friendly. She seemed to have a large section and moved at a snail's pace. We asked for a wine menu to order another round and she never brought it, so we asked a server assistant. She finally showed up about 12 minutes after asking for the menu and we were able to order wine. No checkin on if we were enjoying, and no manager table touch.

    I wanted to love this place and just didn’t. Food was mediocre at best, I had the short rib parpadelle and it was cold and oily. The service was poor… our server was absent and inattentive . we had a 5pm Pre-theater reservation so it wasn’t really busy when we got there, so no excuse. The tables on either side of us had an amazing server who was bubbly and attentive. Our server seemed annoyed to be there. So bummed I was really exited to try this place. Won’t be back.

    Amazing time! This was my first time going for lunch and I can truly say I enjoyed every minute of it. It was a smaller crowd and much nicer experience compared to dinner time. All my favs on the menu were available and I was very happy about that. Can never go wrong with the honey ricotta, Caesar gem salad and the filet with Cacio E Pepe Raviolo on top. All 4 o us shared those items and were satisfied. Thank you and we'll be back!!

    This was maybe my fifth time at Bad Roman. The food is good, the place is fun to be in…the one thing is that service is spotty…I’ve ordered the whipped ricotta multiple times and there’s never enough bread for the amount of ricotta…and the. We order more bread that never comes…and the remaining ricotta just sits there with nothing to spread it on…it’s frustrating because that ricotta is great! I had a similar expert with the tuna tartar on top of it yesterday…I was sharing it with a friend and there was one piece of toast…we left half of the tuna on the plate. Great place but please iron out these details. Either bring more bread for these dishes to start or, when asked for more bring it please…

    Terrible service. Inconsistent is the best word we can use to describe it, but they made up for their errors with some french fries on the house. (which happened to be the best thing we ate).

    So convenient, especially if you are attending a Jazz at Lincoln Center concert, and IF you can get a reservation. Food is very tasty. We suggest sharing some dishes because the srvings are on the generous side. This would let you sample more items from the interesting menu. Unfortunately, our server for our last visit was not friendly and rather haughty which took away from our enjoyment of the meal. It doesn't cost anything to smile, does it?

    Bad Roman is def worth the hype! The environment is fun and usually in my opinion that means the food is not going to be good, but the food was really good! It is not fine dining Italian or the best Italian you will ever have, but modern/fun takes on Italian dishes. I would recommend this for a special occasion/for a group night out.

    I always have a great experience at Bad Roman! The service is wonderful as well was the food. This time I order the ‘strawberry cup’ mocktail and notice there was an odd artificial sugar flavor that I hadn’t tasted before, but they were happy to take it off the bill for me. All around it was a wonderful time as always.
