We simply love eating at Felidia! Whenever in NY, that’s our restaurant of choice, since the old days of the general Maitre D, Kennedy!
This time we went twice to Felidia in a week’s time visit!

Good welcome, but unremarkable pasta for two out of three diners. Complacent and unempathetic waiter. Incredibly high prices overall, with $200+ for three people to have a dish of pasta and eminently forgettable white wine. Very disappointing. Would not survive outside NYC?

Wonderful birthday lunch! Delicious food, beautifully presented. I had silken flavorful pasta with locally-sourced duck.
For dessert, I was presented with special seed and honey cookies, and was given some to take home when I praised them.
I had read Lydia’s memoir for a class, and this was my first time at the restaurant.
Indeed this was a memorable delicious dining experience.

I think the Felidia's was a rip off. For some reason Lidia Bastianich and Mario Batali think they can give you microscopic portions of food at exorbitant prices. I have been to all of Mario Batali's restaurants and would never rush back to any of them except for Babbo, but do not go there if you are hungry.

The dinner at the Felida's was just average. The $90 truffle pasta was tasteless.

I have had truffles all over Italy and in fact went truffle hunting last year with truffle dogs and took a cooking class with truffles so we know a bit about this delicacy.

I would save money for another restaurant. We have been to Scalini Fedeli at least 15 times for special occasions and for a Price fix $75 per person, it blows away this Lidia Bastianich institution.

Food and service was great. We had the Traditional Italian Dinner. All the courses were excellent; prepare and served with perfection. The only negative is that seating is tight.

As a long time fan of Lidia, I was surprised as we arrived that there was a B Grade Rating for the restaurant.

The sommelier was delightful and full of energy to present the pairing menu that was on point. The wines were deicious and well paired with the courses, good work! The first couple of courses on the tasting menu; the salmon, tuna and bass crudo was beautiful and spot on for taste; the Kale salad delicious but a little heavy; the first pasta course - stuffed ravioli with cheese and apple, so light and delicious, were phenomenal! The veal dish on the other hand was heavy and forgettable. I think it needed a but of light greens to balance the density of the veal.

My biggest disappointment was that Lidia was there and stopped at our table. She was cold and bothered, totally not what I was expecting. This is my third and last visit to Felidia. They missed an opportunity to wow us with the food and with Lidia's warmth and appreciation to have fans and guest. Her service was top notch, but she was not!

If it’s your first time, opt for the chefs tasting menu. It will give you an excellent array of dishes that gives you the opportunity to taste the breadth of talent the chefs have.
