The restaurant was lovely, but I went home hungry. My entree was presented beautifully, but it was cold as was my daughters, and they reheated it for us. Maybe I ordered wrong, but as nice as the restaurant was, I was not impressed with the food.

We saw this restaurant on Food Network and the episode was about the Sunday meatballs with spaghetti. The meatballs were outstanding and so huge that we could only eat one and took the rest home for lunch the next day! So good!! The wine selection was nice too! We would go there again the next trip we make to the city!

My partner and I had dinner this past weekend. We made reservations for two. When we arrived they sat us in the aisle only inches away from the couple next to our table. The noise level was close to defeating. The waitress was delightful and polite, though not very experienced. The wine and appetizers came out fine and normally paced. When they cleared the table following the apps, we expected dinner to some soon. It did not. More than 45 minutes passed before the next course. We called over the Maitre'D to inquire and he made some weak excuse that the kitchen was overwhelmed. All this seems to pull our experience down. However, both the waitress and her manager came by to apologize for the long wait. In addition, when we declined their free offer of desert (we really did not want to wait any longer for food), they removed one of the entrees from the bill. We appreciated their consideration and feel that it was an abnormal situation. But, they made up for it and, given their food is very good, would recommend Extra Virgin to family and friends. We do plan to return.

Food wasn’t that interesting. Ordered salmon and while it’s temperature was cooked well, it lacked flavor and was pretty bland that evening. Service was mediocre at best but the ambience of the restaurant is lovely!

I could recommend Extra Virgin to some of my friends, but not to most of them. The service was quite good. Our waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable. And while the food was pretty good, it was originally served at room temperature and had to be sent back to the kitchen. My biggest complaint was the loud music. We had to ask to sit outside because the volume of the music inside prohibited conversation.

This has been one of my go-to neighborhood staples for years and where my mom insists on going for brunch every time she visits. Sadly, we won’t be going back or recommending Extra Virgin again.
Unacceptable would be an understatement. The 40 minute wait on food, coupled with no acknowledgement by our waiter or apology made for a very unpleasant experience.
However, the attitude of the host cemented this as one of the more disappointing dining experience I’ve experienced in 10yrs of living in New York.
What has happened to Extra Virgin?

I have dined there multiple times with a great experience which is why I decided to bring a group of international friends to the restaurant. Unfortunately and embarrassingly for me as I had promised a great restaurant- we had a terrible evening.

_staff were rude. When we asked for something it felt like this was an effort for them.
_when the food came it was slammed down on the table, again, as though it was an effort to serve us.
_our mains (the short ribs) were terrible. The meat was hot but the polenta and everything else on the plate was completely cold. When we informed the server, she asked someone to take it away and replace it. When the meal came back it was missing all of the garnish, appeared half the size of the first one, and had clearly been microwaved. Again, this was thrown down on the table as though we had inconvenienced the staff.
_the remainder of our order was also sub par compared to what I have experienced in the past and didn’t appear or taste fresh.

This was a birthday dinner. The food and service were outstanding. The only negative was the noise level. When the restaurant filled up, because it’s relatively small, it got very loud. Otherwise, everything was wonderful.

I’m so surprised by our terrible experience, especially because this restaurant came with a personal recommendation in addition to being so highly rated. We felt rushed through each disappointing dish and didn’t even care to look at the dessert menu (on my birthday). So glad Grom gelato was close by - we won’t be returning to Extra Virgin.

I'd recommend this restaurant only if you sit outside. Unfortunately, it was chilly so we decided to eat inside, which is very pretty. However, they blasted the music as if we were in a club. We could barely talk. I had a headache when I left.
As for food, I had the branzino, which was very dry - overcooked. I couldn't finish it. We also had the artichoke salad which was stringy. On the other hand, the goat cheese salad and the chicken were delicious.

Nice restaurant, food was good but service wasn't as expected, we remained unattended for a while and they didn't have some of the items we wanted from the bar. The bloody Mary wasn't good it was watery and flavorless. I've been to this restaurant before for dinner and I think it's much better than brunch.

Food was awful, the shrimp salad had 1 shrimp only, the croque madame was soggy, the fallafel salad bland and tasteless and the avocado toast was served on cold soggy bread. The waiter Denys was inept never once checking on us. We got our drinks minutes before the main course arrived and we had to call him over to ask for coffee and dessert. We were crammed in the corner where it was hot, no a/c and one couldn't move in or out. Dessert arrived after we were done our coffee. Waste of money

Fantastic food, great people watching. If you have a 10am reservation on Sunday, arrive on time because the restaurant will have you sit outside until it hits 10am. We arrived a little before at 9:50am and walked around the streets. Highly recommend the artichoke egg dish!

My go-to anytime I’m introducing friends and visitors to great food, drink, service and ambiance. Sit and eat at the bar if alone or with a friend. Daud, JR, Joseph are my favs- everyone there is great and you’ll always get the smiles that make you feel welcome.

It was a cute place but the music was way too loud for a while until they finally lowered it. I might guess they dont normally put it this loud for what its worth. 40 minutes of loud music is enough to sour the overall experience though. Food wasn’t bad, it was average. I got bacon scallops which had a tangy ish sauce that paired bad and my lobster pasta wasnt too good either, but edible. I think I would go back during the day with a bigger group bc I liked the outdoor seating, or, it would go good for a cocktail.

Food was very good, but I was surprised that they were still on a Sunday Brunch only menu at 2 pm.
