A high-end bucket list restaurant that lived up to expectations on every level! Perfect for special occasions, we chose the tasting menu, selected from the menu with our waiters guidance and enjoyed every bite. It was a great deal for 2 appetizers, 2 pastas, 2 main courses and a gorgeous shared dessert! Visiting on a late Sunday night was also the perfect choice, it was quiet, we came at the end of a rush, got a great table and closed the place. It was unhurried and elegant, we were given complimentary Grappa to finish off a perfect evening. De Luxe!!

Just wonderful. Friendly professional service. Great food (albeit a bit too much; we had the Italian Dinner. Pasta Everywhere!!!) and a very comfortable table. It all added up to a great night.

It was our first time at Felidia. We were anticipating a great experience and they exceeded our expectations! We all enjoyed the Traditional Italian Dinner which included a first course (Carbonara was exceptional), followed by 2 pasta dishes (delish), a main course and dessert (by this time we ate and enjoyed everything they brought to the table!). The restaurant staff was incredible. They skillfully orchestrated a lovely atmosphere while paying close attention to every detail. Can’t wait to go back.

My Christmas present to my wife along with the cookbook. The restaurant was wonderful, food was excellent, waitstaff were attentive and polite. My one complaint happened when I received my entree. One of the staff came to the table with a bottle of balsamic vinegar. He said that the chef recommends the steak should be finished off with some 25 year old balsamic vinegar. So I said sure. He drizzled about a teaspoon of the vinegar on my steak. Little did I know that teaspoon of vinegar would cost me $18.00. I guess I should have figured everything has a price. I know for next time.

My husband and I get to New York 3-4 times a year for a long date weekend. Felidia was our hallmark destination this time with the musical. The food was delicious beyond expectations and very well plated. The food was hot and did not show it sat on a heating shelf for an extended period of time. The depth of the herbs and other spices in each of the courses was what we were searching for at this restaurant. We are gourmands and have a blog. We love Lidia seeing her life challenges, efforts and successes. It is so nice to see her be so humble and gracious which is not seen in other chef of her status. I truly would have enjoyed meeting her personally and thanking her for the inspiration she gives us.

Thank you and looking forward to experiencing her other restaurants in the country.

All aspects of our dining experience at Felidia were excellent! I look forward to dining there again and will request, if it is possible, to be seated downstairs in the main area! We had a wonderful evening/dinner at Felidia!

Never fails to be exceptional. Had dinner with my daughter and did the Italian tasting menu. Such a great deal and the wines by the glass were well thought out and wines that I would also buy by the bottle.

I made a reservation for two for dinner, just two women for dinner, and I arrived first to check on our table location. I was entertaining a business client, and obviously wanted to please her (and impress her.)
Just as I arrived the phone rang and the hostess answered. After waiting for several minutes I started walking toward the dining room to see if my client was already seated; she was not. Went back to the hostess and when she finished her conversation she offered to take me to our table. It was in a tight corner, and I knew my client would be unhappy with it. I was offered another table for two, also less than desirable. With so many empty tables for four, I asked to be seated at one on those. Thje hostess left, then came back saying they could seat us upstairs at a table for four. I agreed, but knew it was not a preferred location and my guest would not like it.
I feel we were discriminated against, and not offered the full experience I expected at Felidia. I had eaten at the restaurant several times before (admittedly, quite a few years earlier) and expected the same excellent service, ambiance and food.
The food, in fact, did not disappoint, but the ambiance was not as expected. I don't frequently entertain my clients at restaurants of this caliber; it represented a bit of a "reach" for me, but one I was more than willing to do in this particular situation. To be completelt candid, at the end of the evening I had second thoughts about choosing Felidia.



BTW, this was not a 'corporate' dinner, I was paying the check.

The menu has changed, it isn't as classic Italian as it used to be. The white wine was warm and the general service was a little strange.

This is a personal favorite restaurant. However, I must have annoyed someone there as I have now been seated twice at the worst table in the house. The first four top on the right as you pass the coat check. It intrudes into a busy walkway and is directly across from the food prep table. You are literally in the kitchen. Plus, on New Years Eve we were in unpleasant earshot of the bar conversations that were not only inappropriately loud for an establishment of this type but used language more appropriate for Marine Corps basic training. My recommendation for management is to 86 this particular table and gently remind your bar patrons that the F word and S word are not to be shouted at full throat as forms of verbal punctuation. That’s unacceptable even in New York.

New Year’s Eve . Menu was superb as were the dishes. Service was very good until we finished our main course and the service staff who had waited on us went off duty and we were never informed and no one took their place.
After about 30 minutes we hailed one of the staff and asked for dessert and service
The maitre did apologize and compted is grappa and a sparkling dessert wine

Though we were there to celebrate the New Year holiday and made a reservation, we were completely rushed through dinner (though there were several available tables throughout the restaurant). Many times the staff attempted to clear our plates while we were still eating from it. It made the evening very uncomfortable and disrupted. Will not return- not worth the high price to be rushed through a “fine” dining experience.

Poor service. Waiter didn’t know the menu, brought wrong meal, then blamed the menu for being wrong, then wasn’t helpful or empowered in any way to resolve the situation (simply said “we don’t have what you ordered, Do you want me to talk to the Manager?”... umm, yes). Manager offered to have a different meal prepared “right away” and provided a free glass of wine (nice and appreciated). Meal came out after the other three guests at the table were done. To top off the meal, the bill came with a fraudulent $27 charge on it that I had to catch and point out. This was corrected with only a quick cursory “sorry”. Wow.
