    Great addition to the Westchester dining scene. Salads and assorted apps were shared and enjoyed by everyone. Seafood mains were prepared as ordered and were excellent. Pasta dishes cooked perfectly. Wine list had bottles at every price point. While noise level might bother some, felt it brought energy to an enjoyable evening out

    Good food, but some of the center of the plate items would easily serve two. We may well splir entrees next time. Wine list covers a broad range, including several relative values. Definitely going to return.

    Great small restaurant a couple of blocks from Carnegie Hall. Not destination dining but very good. My wife had shrimp with asparagus atop risotto with a pesto infusion, and I had ravioli stuffed with butternut squash. Pre-concert dining at its finest. Our waitron was excellent. Great to have a conversation without having to scream above the din, as one must do in so many restaurants. If we’re in the neighborhood again, we’d definitely return.

    We had made reservations following a show; food was pretty good. The manager walked around the restaurant looking for open seating, gave a feeling of being rushed. Wait staff seemed to feel her vibe, we felt uncomfortable, left right after dinner.

    What a discovery! I can't believe I hadn't ever been to this place before. All of our dishes were first-rate, the service was attentive and friendly and the wine list is one of the best I've ever seen. Not that it was one of those 100 page tomes of wines you would never buy for dinner - who buys a $500 Amarone to have with pizza? But it had interesting choices at a range of prices starting in the low $40's. Salads were generous and interesting. A good range of vegetarian options for me. And a great location for events at City Center and really not far from the main theatre district.

    The food and service were good. The one reservation I have is about the physical structure of the restaurant. Like many dining spots in New York City, Basso56 is long and narrow. We were a party of four and my chair projected into the aisle, which was heavily used by wait staff and customers. No one bumped into me, but if you don't appreciate the bustle immediately behind you, be sure to request a table (there are a number of them) that is off the main aisle.
