    Very odd reception service. Hostess stand was empty when I arrived and finally someone came and told me my table was not yet ready and directed me to the bar. Standing at the bar, I wasn’t acknowledged, no menu, nothing. My other party arrived and when we went to check back in, again, empty hostess stand. We were again told the table wasn’t ready and we were directed back to the bar. We stood there for at least five minutes, no acknowledgement, no menus, nothing. Very confusing and off putting. Really dampened the mood. The rest of the service in the dining room was excellent.

    After initial confusing greetings by host and several other employees we waited close to 10 minutes to receive our actual menus. We did get water and the wine list, but not the dining menu. If you can allow yourself to have a wine pairing with your dinner, it is excellent. Intuitive pairing and lots of good conversation. Som did a great job. Place really picked up with energy as the night went on. By 9:30 pm it was close to packed. We went upstairs for jazz at Barretto. If you’re coming to dine here definitely make time to go check out the jazz club upstairs after dinner.

    We didn't expect this restaurant to have such a high level of service, but my wife and I were very impressed. Every member of the staff was very professional and prompt, and the young sommelier (the one that moved from Dubai) that helped us was patient and a joy - we saw him interact this way at every table. While we didn't opt for the pre-fixe menu, we found the food elegant, yet sophisticated. The menu has something for everyone so you will definitely have good choices. Overall, this is a very good dining experience.

    I always enjoy Fasano as the surrounding are perfect, the noise level is relatively low by New York standards, tables are usually distant enough from one another and for the most part, the food is good. My experience yesterday was not as good. My burrata appetizer was "pretty" but whoever sliced the prosciutto "missed"...little pieces if not bits of inconsequential meat with no taste and disguised by walnuts sauce...burrata was fine. My main course, steak was cooked to perfection (medium rare) but the steak was very tough. I thought the service was timely but indifferent. I could not get the attention of the waiter to get a spoon. Maybe this was a one time thing. I will be back as I hope this is not a trend.

    Very sophisticated restaurant with exceptional food. The steak was cooked to perfection and extremely tender. The artichoke risotto was great as well. The drinks are a bit pricey but also very strong. The bread basket is very delicious as well. All employees and waitresses are very friendly and accommodating. They gave a dessert with candle for the birthday. A lot of foreign in the restaurant: Brazilians, Spanish and Asians. Definitively recommend to a friend. I can't wait to go back and visit the piano bar as well.

    I’ve been to Fasano many times and, as has always been the case, had a fantastic meal. The reception is warm, the service is attentive but not overbearing, the wine list (and Kaps, the sommelier) is top notch, the food is delicious, and the room is beautiful. Highly recommended!!

    As someone who travels for work and has a lot of body modifications, Fasano was one of the only places I’ve been to that welcomed me without hesitation and treated me without judgement. The menu, the staff and the chef all delivered far beyond the reviews even on GuideMichelin. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to have a thoughtfully delightful dinner and cocktail or wine.

    WOW! How to stand out in a multiverse of "high quality" Italians? May be one of the best restaurants I've eaten in regardless of cuisine so it goes without saying, they are stomping out the native competition. The food is on another level. The scallops were cooked perfectly with just enough edgy char locking in sweet and shiny succulents in a sauce so elevated it rose off the dish and could be a meal unto itself. An osso bucco so tender and rich, it's hard to believe it started on the bone. The service. Tableside Spoon served risotto and pomodoro sauce to maintain heat and texture during the dining experience. The price. Don't ask but who cares. In a world where you rarely get what you pay for, I am walking away full and ecstatic... and this was lunch! Can't wait for dinner.

    Old-fashioned elegance; perfect for a Christmas season near Rockefeller Center. Food quality was hit-or-miss. Watery, tasteless lobster risotto was followed by tasty striped bass. Special dessert of the day was holiday perfect and delicious: moist panettone with zabaglione. Cocktail choices were uninteresting, lacking sufficient variety, but choices of wine by the glass are rich with well-selected offerings. Table service was inconsistent, although hospitality from the front door through the extended rooms was consistently warm and welcoming. Prices are sky-high. And in a city full of better Italian restaurants, Fasano fails to capitalize on the uniqueness of its Brazilian background. Nevertheless, can be a fun, holiday evening.
