What Insiders Are Saying
A new restaurant from the people behind Estela, in the Met Breuer museum.
We loved this place. We went for my husband's birthday. It was really lovely inspired food. A bit cashy - small plates - the idea is to have lots and lots of little plates - but they are priced like full meals. We left starving since no one explained this to us. It's in a museum on the UES but we were still a little surprised since we'd eaten at Cafe Boulud the night before for less money - and only had appetizers (basically) at Flora Bar. Go to this place - go with lots of money - and order everything! It's worth it - but was a splurge for us. It was clearly not a splurge for the other patrons, and how to order seemed to be a closely guarded secret.
So the food was remarkable. I have been jonesing for the croquettes all week. In general I can’t say I’m impressed with most NYC dining but this place is the real deal.
Delicious food in a great and casual serting
Seating is very close to your fellow diners. You have to compete to talk over their conversations. The chicken was almost raw. Have coffee in the lounge, better value for your money
A downtown gem on the Upper East Side with gracious staff and delicious food.
Bread is amazing as usual at all there restaurants. The endive salad is the star of the show as was the shrimp/uni bite. Some gripes about the tuna tartare sadly and the ribs!
Spectacular setting, outstanding service and engaging and knowledgeable wine waiter. Flora Bar exceeded expectations of an eatery in a major gallery.
Perfect, delicioso y trabquilo
The quality of the food is not as good lately
Presentation has slipped
Cooking and atmosphere are the best! I had a wonderful lunch date.(^ ^)
Attentive, genuine, expert service. Warm and welcoming. Food gorgeous and delicious. Bartender sent over a cocktail for my birthday! A TEN!
Awesome experience and meal. Service was top-notch all around.
More than one hour waiting for the food and when it arrived part was cold ( burger).
Delicious food with excellent ingredients like chanterelle mushrooms or Japanese beef, that make your dinner a little pricey. If it’s worthy or not, it depends on you. Excellent for a restaurant inside a museum.
It's hard to leave a real review because the food took FOREVER to come out. We ordered 5 plates at the waitresses recommendation for 2 people. We got 1 thing at the 1hr20min mark, then another 20-30 minutes later, the crudite arrived. Crudite was a bowl of ice with small raw veg stuck in. Does that take almost 2 hours? And a plate of sliced ham. Very bizarre. They did give us 2 little hush puppies to apologize at about the 1hr 15 minute mark, but I had to beg for bread and butter. So you want to savor and enjoy the experience, but when it takes that long, it's hard to appreciate the delicacies, when you are starving. For the price, service should be outstanding.
Waitress ( that looked messy) made sarcastic remarks and when my Husband called it out ,she couldn’t handle it and disappeared ,for long periods of time,(almost ignoring us)
The croquettes were greasy and tasteless
We asked for medium well for the steak ,and it came beyond raw.
They took some things from the bill at the end , but this does not compensate for the terrible service and the bad experience.
New York has great restaurants ,and it doesn’t need one more mediocre ,pretentious and unprofessional venue.
Service was slow and not well organized: e.g., main courses were not served together. The service was otherwise attentive and polite.
Flora Bar is always a pleasure. The food and service are impeccable. And the wine list is outstanding!
We ate at Flora because we were at the Breuer, and the food is good. Unfortunately, despite my confirming the booking the previous day by telephone and checking in at the hostess table, I was later notified by Open Table that I hadn’t showed up. Seriously? Not what one should expect from a good restaurant where one spends upwards of $100 at lunch,even in NYC.
Fod timing and attention to detail could benefit from improvement
Flora is a pretentious place with a limited menu of overpriced food. In spite of having a reservation and arriving to an empty dining room, we were seated against the only brick wall in the place, rather than looking out at the garden. We asked for a different table, but were told they were all reserved. When we pointed out that we also had a reservation, we were told that nothing else was available. It will not surprise you that when we left two hours later, the restaurant was still 2/3rds empty. So much for customer service.
Very over-priced. The dumplings "entree" was good, but it was more like an appetizer, except for the $32 price. Our waitress was very slow and forgot two items, although we were there early, at a time when there were few customers.
We had a bad visit.
Stunned to see the beer I ordered came in a can. Appetizers were fine but my wife and I ordered the same fish entree, which came out together, with one completely undercooked. Sent it back, took so long they obviously forgot about it. So both people ate their entrees alone. Food is minuscule at very large prices. Staff knew that they had messed up and comped the entree without asking.
So very refined that we both ate the dollop of puree that had so little flavor neither of us could identify it. Had to ask to find out it was pureed nettle and parsley. Who knew?
Lovely atmosphere and inventive dishes. Highly recommend.
Matthew has put together an interesting wine list and the food is terrific!
We love this restaurant, the food is delicious, bread outstanding, drinks perfect. Excellent service. We were hoping to sit outside the other night but it wasn't possible.
Great get together place after visiting the museum
Always love the food - check out the menu. One can carry on a conversation. Pricey but I've never felt it wasn't worth it.
Flora Bar never misses a beat. From the moment you walk in until you leave, everything is seamless. The Hosts are friendly, the service polished, and the food amazing. Every dish is thought out and finished perfectly.
A neighborhood gem! Great food in a very pleasant setting.
We need more restaurants like it in the upper east side.
A little disappointing on this visit. Service was competent, if (very unusually) a little snarky. The dining room is a pleasure at lunch with light pouring in and high ceilings. The food was good but not exceptional. As one person remarked, the tuna tartare on another table looked like Spam. Not a good look!
Outrageous prices for tiny servings. Wagyu burger looked only slightly larger than the size of a silver dollar, dwarfed by its bun. $24. Embarrassing for a serious restaurant.
Room very attractive, staff attentive, wine list nicely curated with helpful sommelier.
Food well prepared but a tendency to go overboard with some flavour elements, like the broth for the lobster ravioli, which was a trifle fishy for my tastebuds.
Flora is one of our favorite restaurant in the entire city. The food, space, and wine program are all so artfully composed
Wine pour was stingy— 4oz— should have been 6oz particularly considering the price
Flora never disappoints! Best place on the UES.
Far, far better than the week before when we waited more than an hour to be served after ordering.
Do NOT go in the evening where the music is deafening.
Every dish from start to finish was fantastic. Excellent cocktails and excellent service as well. Loved the ambience. Will definitely be back
Dishes were excellent -- perfectly prepared, presented. Comfortable table spacing, good acoustics and lighting. Climate (room temp) just right on a hot/humid evening -- cool, but not freezing, as many places don't seem to be able to regulate room temps. Wait staff was flexible, well informed about all dishes, and always available, but not, thank you, doting.
The shrimp in our shrimp cocktail were mushy. The lobster and crab dumplings were tasteless
