It was a birthday celebration. The Staff cold not have been more pleasant or helpful. Sitting under the installation was energizing and fun. Would have preferred a flute for the Prosecco but one need to be flexible Was really great hearing people talk and laugh after a grueling pandemic quarantine.
THANK YOU EATALY FOR BEING OPEN AND BEING SUCH A TERRIFIC HOST!!

when we order Diet Coke and you come to the table with Italian cola, don't be surprised when we send it back and just stick with water - the opportunity to upsell is gone.

Our experience dining here was excellent! The food was high quality, portioned well, and fresh. However the true differentiator for us was our server. Javier added to our experience by taking the time to walk us through our wine flight and answering all of our questions as we went along. You could tell that he was very busy but that did not impact the quality of our service or his presence. Very impressed and cannot recommend enough!

Over all very good, the hostess was very nice , the ambience was great , food was good, waiter was the only downside and that was just because he was not as attentive as he need to be and did not follow up with us as much and took a long time to check back in
Otherwise it was a good night

Food was very salty. Ordered the calamari and risotto nero. Both were very salty. The risotto was really disappointing. It only had a half raw scallop on top. It needed something else like seafood or veggies. It was plain other than the squid ink which was not tasty at all. The drinks were good. The ambience was nice.

Great food, horrible service. Sat down for 21 mins till a manager showed up and said our waitress is busy and she instead will take down our order. 10 mins went by to get the pizza, trying to flag down our waitress asking if she was our waitress, she said yes and she sent her manager to take our order and asked if we want to order something else. I said we just want to know if we do have a waitress. No apology nothing. May be it’s a hot or a miss. But our bus boy were polite and efficient.

My Lasagna was very good and a decent sized port. However my wife ordered Black squid ink risotto and scallops. The portion for 29.00 had one smashed poor excuse for a scallops and just one. Terrible dish! Service was pedestrian and ok. I am not fond of this caliber of food. Desert was better with the cream puffs. The waitress was helpful. I did leave a too and did not complain to the manager. I live nearby and have had meals here before, but this was not good.

The pizza was decent but the starters and the pasta were very bland. It also took them a very long time to give us our food.
The portions were not very good and the taste was not great either.

the man at the front of the grocery store/security guard didn’t say hello or welcome us the first thing he said was to cover our noses with our masks.
when you’re going to dinner you should be welcomed and said hello to, not immediately told to cover your nose. there should be improved social etiquette for the security guards who are the first people you see when walking in and set the mood/tone for the night.

The service is good and so is the supporting cast. The ambiance is good. We were there on a Saturday afternoon. Food arrived fast and our waiter was good. But it was too overpriced and the amount of food you get is too little. One time experience only.

We were able to get a table next to the window where we could see the 9/11 memorial reflecting pools. The ambience was lively, they had a live band performance. The service was a bit slower than expected but staff was friendly. The food quality was good, we tried the cheese platter that was on the new color factory theme menu and a vegan pizza.
