Tout étais parfait sauf beaucoup trop bruyant, impossible de se parler.
Definitely not a date type. It’s super loud.
The pizza was small and chewy. The salad was tiny. Last time I ate at LAVO the food was great. This time was awful. Service was Ok.
Great food and lovely ambiance and beautiful people. Took forever to get water however....
Food was amazing!!
Good food but too noisy- the music is too loud!
Service should have been nicer and more attentive but did provide what needed. Food quite good and ambiance nice!
I love Lavo. I frequent the Vegas restaurant and I have been to the NY a few times. This time was different. Our table was as far into the dining area as possible. We were stuck between multiple tables celebrating birthdays. It was much more noisy and crowded than expected. The food was still great.
A 5 star Italian restaurant!! We started with the Calamari and Giant Meatball, both outrageous. Then we moved on to Penne Seafood Alfredo, Margarita pizza, mushroom truffle gnocchi, chicken parmigiana, the wedge salad and of course an order of truffle fries! Would do it all over again tomorrow!
fantastic! always delicious every time i dine there
Excellent food in a great location on 58th Street right off Fifth Avenue. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. The only thing was that the restaurant was too loud. Great for an evening out with friends. A business dinner, less so. Would go again though.
Good food as usual, polite service, excellent wait time for food.
Waiters come back and check on you which is valued.
The decibel level made it uncomfortable to dine. Turn the music down. It is a restaurant, not a dance club.
The food was so good, great lively atmosphere. Awesome music!!
We were seated immediately since we had a reservation and our waiter was very attentive. I ordered a steak that was over cooked but the flavor was very good. The broccoli rabe was actually broccolini, not good. We also ordered the mashed potatoes which were delicious.
Overall, my experience was positive. I was expecting the food to be a little better but it was good.
First class upscale experience, staff is so on point. Food is beyond deliciously prepared , don’t miss this NYC gem !
The food and service was excellent at lunch. Will definitely go for dinner on our next visit.
Food was OK but noise level was deafening. If you don't want to talk to your companion/s go there.
Delicious food. Huge portions. Great service. Trendy loud crowd. Had a fun evening.
Great place in the city!
Very slow service, for the price the host / wait staff needs to do a lot more
Not business meeting friendly
Entire restaurant was available and they put another big group right next to us and they were loud
Lavo never disappoints me! The food and ambiance always on point.
Annual Lavo lunch with my daughters. Food, service and overall experience never disappoints. Glad to see the lunch menu evolves each year. Our experience eating, laughing and enjoying the time together at Lavo was priceless.
Highly recommend the Lavo lunch experience
DJ was on point
A bit pricey but that’s to be expected.
Excellent food service selection
Delicious Italian/American restaurant but very noisy, very loud, hard to have a conversation.....
Celeste was AMAZING. Fun, attentive & made sure we got to our show on time. Food came out super quick so even our late-arriving guests were able to enjoy.
The Lunch Special 3 Course Meal is Great Price and Food was good. However, bad experiance with the steak over seasoned and meatballs to much parm cheese. However they complimented me with another dish of my liking.
Excellent and attentive service during lunch. Well-prepared food. My two dining partners got the prix fixe lunch which looked delicious and ample. The restaurant is beautiful - a soothing and open-air feel was welcomed on a hot humid day in the city. Would happily return.
Use to be my favorite Italian spot. Food and service going downhill!
Basically when you go to an italian restaurant you feel like eating pasta. Well I ask for spaghetti with meat balls. The spaghetti were swiming in a tomate sauce, not very hot (I like the pasta to be hot, logically) the meat was overcook and the meat was spreaded. I was very very hungry so I ate, but I did not enjoy the meal. Sorry I should have complain but I was very upset. Maybe it was my fault not to complain.
Everytime I went to NYC I came by Lavo, I may not do it again.
Great!! Everything was wonderful
Asparagus was a little under cooked. Our waitress wasn’t very amicable. She was chewing gum like a valley girl during her shift and while she took our order. Also she expressed the entree we ordered only came with a protein and suggested a side. We ordered a side, and the entree came with spinach and mushrooms... so that was weird.
All done very professionally. Food was excellent. Waitress was excellent
It was a energetic happy hour crowd. We ate in the dining room which was quieter than the bar scene. The menu is thoughtful and not difficult for anyone to find something that they would enjoy eating. The portions are ample and well prepared. The Prix Fixe menu is a bargain and looks amazing. All of it well done.
Great seafood tower
Food is excellent as usual. Great value for restaurant week. The like this place for it’s a quick and casual lunch place with excellent food at a good value. The waitress we had however was a bit absent minded (forgot our iced tea) and seemed in a rush to wrap us up when the restaurant has plenty of empty tables.
Everything great but too noisy! Restaurant Week dinner portions were terrific. The waiter was very attentive and accommodating.
