The chef’s six course tasting was AMAZING. We also chose to do the wine pairing, and it was so worth it. The service was excellent, they were attentive and helpful. HIGHLY recommend. We had one of the truffle pastas, and I actually want to be buried with that pasta. It was to die for good

The food is fabulous and extraordinary in every respect. The quality, knowledge and preparation invested in the food is without question superb. The staff is terrific, patient and extremely knowledgeable. This is a terrific restaurant for people who love cooking and creative food. Be prepared to post your first born child as collateral for paying the check when you receive it.

The service was excellent. Unfortunately, the food was not. I ordered the special, veal parmesan The waiter described it as covered in a tomato sauce with melted cheese. Although abundant, the meat and sauce were dry. The cheese was hard. It seemed like the dish had been sitting around for a long time. My husbsnd’s dish, zucca e romanasca, was bland.

Felidia has an enticing reputation that interested us. We took friends to celebrate and occasion together and were ultimately disappointed. The staff was initially attentive. As one of the four guests dining I requested well done veal and was convinced to have it done medium-well. When all four dishes were brought to the table the veal was rare and had to be sent back. The remaining three guests ate cold food by the time the veal was returned. Then I, along with another guest, ordered tea. Tea was brought for one. Three servers had to be asked to bring the additional tea. I felt ignored and embarrassed to have yet something else go wrong. The other three guests had very good meals but to avoid being rude, as previously stated, they waited for me to eat. This took away from the enjoyment that we had looked forward to,

So disappointed! We dined at Felidia in May of last year and were blown away...in a good way. Everything was top notch. We recommended to friends that it would be the perfect place to start our NYC weekend. A special, veal Milanese, was unappetizing in appearance, tough in texture, and flavorless. Likewise, the liver, although palatable itself, was served with a smattering of pickled red onions...unappealing and discordant in their pairing with the liver. I may be a rube, but when I think of liver and onions, I think of loads of carmelized onions...with bacon too.

The quail and steak choices were, however, a big hit with those who ordered them. And the chocolate dessert was perfect for sharing with its many types of chocolate types and flavors.

Possibly my 100th visit to Felidia over 30 years, I have dined again with friends and staff at this great upper east side classic of italian cuisine. The menu is always fresh and invigorating, curated by the exec chef Fortunato Nicastro. The team is superb. Allow Furtunato to cook for you and do not order. You will be elated at the end of the evening.

Been to Felidia several times. The food is always well prepared and served efficiently. Wish it would give more green choices on salads and sides. We also wish that they r more accommodating to customers who prefer to split the bill and pay separately . New York City is full of non-corporate sponsored foodies who enjoy elegant dining. The restaurant should not expect one person to pay for the total bill as the customers requested, and not to make it difficult in order to suit its own convenience! This is discrimination towards non corporate individual foodies. We met Lidia on several occasions. She always presented a genuine friendliness towards people who appreciates her food. I am sure this is not Lidia’s policy towards bill splitting!

Wonderful experience at Felidia the other night! We had spent the day in the city doing touristy things and went to the restaurant early for a drink. We were welcomed warmly at the bar. Our table was ready shortly after and the staff was extremely nice to our 7 year old daughter. We had the beef carpaccio and chicken livers appetizers and both were phenomenal. I had a special with pasta and lobster and my husband had the pear and pecorino ravioli. Amazing! We loved the fresh pasta and inventive sauces. They made fresh spaghetti with pomodoro sauce especially for our daughter (it’s not on the menu) and we really appreciated that. We will certainly return. It was a very special evening!

The waitstaff (Louis) in particular was Superb! Food was memorable and would gladly re order the pastas and apps. The grilled seafood was ok -not great. Same for the Tuna. Unfortunately there was a diner at a nearby table who didn’t know the term “indoor voice “ and was distracting. Manager refused to address it. Waiters tried to no avail.

My wife and I made a dinner reservation for Christmas Eve as soon as we booked our trip to NYC for Christmas. We arrived a few minutes early but were immediately seated and wonderfully accommodated for the duration of our meal, which was amazing! We ordered several things a la carte, including the shrimp salad, octopus salad, sea bass and quail. We also split one of the truffle pastas. Everything was delicious and cooked to perfection! It was a truly decadent, enjoyable experience!

Food is delicious and the ambiance great. Service started out ok but by the second course it was clear they forgot us and the main course arrived cold. Took a while to get it rectified but once they did it was excellent and they gave us an appropriate break on the bill. Still a most enjoyable restaurant and experience. We will return.

I would have ranked this lower, but the food was great. I think if you aren’t from NYC the servers think you arrived on a turnip truck. Dismissive and condescending. Nonetheless, the food was very good. Just wish the servers had better attitudes.
