Felidia was incredible. The service was attentive, polite, and welcoming. The food was beyond delicious. An expensive restaurant but the food is well worth it, especially for a special occasion. Worth the splurge!

Felidia never disappoints. The food and service are amazing. This time we noted the parking validation. That's a great point, it discounts the $50 parking (3 hours) to $20. Don't think about skipping the pasta course, you will never have the opportunity to have pasta this amazing. Every course brings something to the experience.

After watching Lidia on TV, we just had to try one of her restaurants while in New York.
We were just being seated when, serendipitously, Lidia herself walked in and said Hello.
After a wonderful meal, she was gracious enough to allow a photo opportunity and, as much
as the meal, we will always enjoy our group picture with her.

We ate at Felidia for Sunday night family style dinner. The food was outstanding, as was the attentive nature of both the servers and the sommelier. We chose to have the wine tasting along with the dinner, and although a bit pricey, it was well worth it. The sommelier matched different wines with each course, and they would repour when your glass was empty. I would definitely recommend anyone who is interested in a high end Italian restaurant to eat here. Great food and wine.

Wow! This was my first time back in 10 years and sad to say, I will not be back. I could always rely on this restaurant for amazing food served by elegant and understated waiters. I don’t know what has happened to it. It has become a haven for loudmouthed over-served tourists and the waiters treated us accordingly. Rushing us to order, hurrying us through courses, and pushing The higher price on trays. They clearly thought we were tourists and although we are both from the south, we have have lived in New York for over 30 years. Obviously Lydia has not been on scene in quite some time. Her staff used to operate at Danny Meyer levels. Where did they go? They must’ve taken the chef with them because the baranzino was tasteless and kale salad unexceptional. What a loss.

This restaurant came highly recommended but I found the vibe to be outdated and stuffy. While the actual quality of the past was amazing, I did not enjoy the sauces or the meat that came with the pasta. Maybe I just ordered the wrong stuff? The deserts were quite good especially the panna cotta. However, the nutella tiramisu was a bust.

Felidia used to be our favorite restaurant but it is definitely slipping. We were told to wait while they checked on our table even though the restaurant was half filled. We waited about 10 more minutes until someone else came and asked if we wanted to be seated. Then they tried to give us a less than desirable table when a much better table was free. When we asked to change tables they reluctantly told us to wait to see if they would permit us to move. They did but the mood was already dampened. Waitress couldn’t pronounce the food and ended up bringing the wrong dish. Food was mediocre at best. Usually in the past the chef would serve an amuse bouche or bring cookies, etc. Cost was very high and not a pleasant experience. Won’t be returning.

This was my first time here and it did not disappoint! My appetizer was amazing! The shrimp salad with artichokes and pistachios was excellent and presented so beautifully that I had to take a picture of it! My truffle pasta entree was also excellent. The food was seasoned perfectly. Unfortunately I did not have room for dessert, hopefully next time. The staff was terrific and I would love to go back for the Sunday dinner menu!

Food, ambiance and service was good. But very expensive. We saw the pre-fixe lunches to be valued at $34-$39 but most of the dishes that we wanted had a supplement charge. A bit disappointing. For was good though but with that kind of pricing, I was not sure it was that worth it. The scallop was awesome but at 3-4 pcs. (can't remember how many) at $34 was I think a robbery. Then the salad of $23 was just too much. Dining experience was great because I was with my best friends. But the after feeling of spending $144 per head for lunch was just way off.

Haven't been back to Felidia in a few years and I'm happy to say that it's lost none of its charm, food quality nor service expertise. The table ordered the Prix Fixe Italian Tasting Menu and every single item that we were served was superlative. From the cannellini dip and outstanding bread that greet you -- to the grilled octopus, Pear and Pepper (house special) ravioli, rigatoni with wild boar ragu that followed -- to the main offerings of whole roasted duck (a special for the day) -- we were all more than pleased. The final dessert course assortment that we all received along a side of with home-baked Italian cookies topped off an excellent dining experience. From the captain to the entire wait staff, the service was not fussy, but attentive and expert. We love Felidia -- I don't see how anyone could not -- except for the exceedingly high price tag that accompanies this level of dining.

That Lydia was at the next table eating with friends says everything you need to know about Felidia. We have been enjoying Felidia since 1988 and served by Pepino almost every time. The complete package of outstanding food complemented by wonderful service is why Felidia has been so successful for so long. Lydia has achieved celebrity chef status but still presided over her namesake with love and affection for the diners. In a business filled by trendy places, Felidia has stayed true to its original vision and mission, and creating memorable experiences along the way.
