Restaurant was closed. Has been for weeks. Yet reservations were still able to be made on Open Table. A Valentine’s Day that went really wrong!

I would love to give a review of this restaurant, however, despite having a reservation and arriving on time, we were shocked to find out that the restaurant is PERMANENTLY CLOSED. So we were left standing on 2nd Avenue in New York on our 35th anniversary with no place to go. Thankfully we found Sandro’s (also on Open Table). They took pity on us and gave us their last table obviously with no reservation. Open Table, you blew it. I have been a member for years and have previously had nothing but positive experiences using this app. I would suggest that you UPDATE YOUR INFORMATION so others are not left in the cold (quite literally). And don’t even try sending me a message that I no showed for my reservation.

Food generally good; tables were small for 4 people waiter was inattentive. We had to get up & walk over to him to ask for a 2nd bottle of wine. Restaurant space is in need of some updates.

I specified it was our anniversary on the reservation and they did nothing but give us free lemoncello which they give everyone. I really don’t care Just saying. why have an option to request a special occasion and then not acknowledge it. food is always good service is decent but its just annoying seeing as we’ve been there many times and had our wedding celebration there 12 yrs ago.

Excellent place for dinner. Food was delicious. The waiter was very attentive. It was excellent that we were able to converse without ambient noise. Our reservations were early at 6:30 pm though, so this might change later during the evening.

As a family of 4, we are always looking for new places to eat. We actually live in the neighborhood and did not know that this gem existing. Food was really good. Our first wine choice was not available but the waiter recommended another brand and it was excellent. We look forward to returning.

Food was good. Been there a few times. Not since last year though. Seems a bit run down. Also, AC was not adequate, but it was a very hot night, so maybe that was the problem.

Very busy for 7:45 res, choice of two tables, one cramped in front corner the other next to loud B'day celebration.
Made the best of it, after consulting complicated wine book, had nice, reasonably priced bottle of red.
Dined on salad and veal picatta and paparadella, tasty.
Pleasant young waiters.

We have been going to Firenze for many years. We are very familiar with the original restaurant & now the new location. It is larger & more attractive than the original. The food is vg but not gourmet.

Overall a very pleasant dining experience and we plan to return during a future vacation. The veal sauteed in parmesan was especially flavorful, the calamari appetizer very generous, and the service was cordial and efficient.

They need additional staff to bus tables. Waiter was nice and competent enough....along with Manager.
I just don't understand why they don't hire some kid to bus tables, fill water glasses and serve bread. Your asking your limited staff to do too much! Won't be back.

We love Firenze. We usually have dinner and bring friends and everyone always agrees--it's a wonderful restaurant in every way. This time we had brunch and it was fantastic. My french toast was outstanding--copious serving with delicious fruit and whipped cream and syrup. Yum! And the soundtrack (Tony Bennett) was divine. A place of elegance, charm and delicious food at fair prices. with seamless service. Thanks Firenze!

We have been going to Firenze for 20 years. We won’t be going back. Our waiter stopped at our table only once without having to be summoned after long waits. After 45 minutes we still hasn’t ordered. The food itself was mediocre.
