I had a reservation, so I didn’t expect to wait for a table. Even with my reservation, I had to wait over 30 minutes to be seated. I think that defeats the point of making a reservation. My friend and I were upset that we had planned our night around this dinner and then still had to wait. The food was amazing, I jus wish the service was better.

Exceptional. Food, service and ambiance were all stand-outs, as well as the extensive wine list. I've rarely been to a restaurant where waitstaff and the kitchen have cared so much about their guests.

The overall experience was fantastic. The food was absolutely delicious, from the cheese to pasta. I’d love to try some entree and dessert next time! It’s an ideal place for a date or every day dining, and I just wish the reservation can be easier to take!

The appetizers and chefs amuse were the best food. Our entrees weren’t great. When we arrived for our reservation they did not have a table for us so they sat us at the bar instead which was disappointing at first but the bartender was great and made it a good experience.

The ambiance was cold. The staff seemed uninterested in working there. The service was like in a caffeteria. We were rushed thru our dinner by people removing our plates too quickly. The place seemed empty but could not get a table!

The restaurant was full and was WAY loud, not only due to a large table of bro’s next door, but they weren’t using inside voices. We had excellent service; creative cocktails and mostly outstanding food - one pasta dish, orecchiette with sausage, was disappointingly ordinary.

Every time I thought to look for a reservation here, the only times were 10pm and that is too late for me! When I finally saw an earlier slot, I jumped on it. We came to celebrate my husband’s birthday and it was an amazing meal! We ordered the mushrooms (recommended by everyone we asked), gnocchi, trofie, and octopus - and we had the option of the octopus coming out as an app (which we selected) or as 3rd course. The chilies were definitely noticed but not overpowering. The gnocchi was perfectly done and the rabbit ragu with it was so hearty. We had the olive oil cake for dessert and a complementary honey lavender ice cream with pignoli cookie as a birthday surprise! If we weren’t so stuffed, we would have ordered another cake. With the meal we had a delightful nebbiolo and the server was very knowledgeable when making the recommendation. We will be back, and I don’t care what time it is!

Ok. I know everyone LOVES this place. It’s meh. The drama of having to stay up until midnight to book is not justified. It’s good but it’s not mind blowing good. I think Lupa far surpasses and we don’t feel the pressure of “move it so we can turn your table”. Prices are reasonable but it’s too competitive in the City.

Lovely, cozy, chic spot serving delicious food and with a remarkably good wine list. It’s been discovered by more corporate types (was inevitable) and can be a scene on weekends and later at night, but that small aggravation couldn’t keep me away.

L’Artusi has become one of my go to restaurants in NYC. Dining at this establishment is not only about an amazing meal, the service and ambiance make you feel like you are a movie star.. I could not believe the waiter, Abdul remembered my very specific drink. The prices for a restaurant of this caliber are very reasonable and the portions are large.

Reservations are tough to get, but so worth waiting for. I had the octopus and the chicken and both were phenomenal. I can’t say enough positive things about this restaurant.

I chose this restaurant because it had gotten so many good reviews for food and was described as one of the most romantic restaurants in New York. We arrived on time and were immediately seated at a table along the wall opposite the bar. At first, I thought it might not be a great table, but actually it was as good as it gets. The bar, where many patrons eat, extends almost the whole length of the downstairs. My husband mentioned to the hostess that we were celebrating our anniversary. Our server, who was charming, brought us each a sip of Prosecco to celebrate. A nice touch. I went to the rest room to wash my hands. Upon entering the very, very dark room, I looked in vain for a light switch. After a while, I realized the lights were on! The room was black. I had to grope around and finally found the hand dryer. Back at the table, we quickly became acquainted with the couple next to us because the tables were so close. The place was noisy, making it easier to talk to the stranger sitting next to one than to one's partner across the table. The menu is interesting. I ordered a chicory salad and gnocchi with rabbit ragu. My husband ordered mushrooms and charred calamari. We ordered wine by the glass. The bottles were expensive. House-made sparkling water was free. Another nice touch. I enjoyed my food. My husband did not enjoy his. Both of his dishes had too much hot pepper. We didn't have dessert.
