Food and service was excellent but it was very loud
This restaurant is the worst ever! It’s not worth for the value of your money. The pasta is so dry and doesn’t have a taste. The penne is like it was taken out from the box and microwaved like the macaroni and cheese from the grocery store. I had guests from Canada and I was so disappointed. I should have taken them to Shake Shack.
Do not come to this place if you want good value for your money.
Great restaurant and excellent place for a large party. Very accommodating. The food was excellent! The staff was friendly. The food was a little slow in coming out. Other than that I would recommend this place and I will be back.
I have been to Lavo before and this experience was nothing like my last one. There was only one server taking care of about 10 tables, so the service was off because the server was so busy that he didn’t have time to focus on his tables. The food was mediocre and def not at the same level as it was the last time I came here for brunch. When our meals were dropped off my coffee cup was cleared away and I wasn’t offered more coffee. It took about 10 minutes to get one of the bussers attentions to bring another cup of coffee. All in all I was really disappointed with this visit.
The food was absolutely wonderful. Our server was friendly and when it came time for dessert our plat was brought with a candle and chocolate celebrating our anniversary on it. Such a fun and special Place!
Outstanding italian food. Hip city vibe & ambiance. Will def return!
Food great. Very noisy. Hard to carry on a conversation
Very nice place , service was excellent
Excelente lugar para celebrar nuestro aniversario
When we arrived the restaurant was jammed with loud office parties and service was slow to the point of nonexistence. After 25 minutes we had still not placed our order and nothing, not even bread, had arrived at our table. We decided they were just too busy to take care of us and left. We were followed out to the sidewalk by the General Manager, Brian Hudson, who had noticed us leaving and he begged us to give them a chance to make amends. We reluctantly agreed and Brian showed us to a quiet table in the bar area. The meal that followed was outstanding, service was impeccable and Brian comped us a bottle of wine and dessert. It is clear that Lavo management not only knows what is going on, but is prepared to make a significant effort to take care of ALL of their customers. Well done! Brian’s actions turned our dinner from a disappointment to a delight!
1st. Time diners and we enjoyed ourselves. We will be back!
My favorite restaurant in NYC. Pleasantly satisfied
Fabulous experience with amazing customer service
Nos trataron pésimo, llegamos temprano y nos dijeron q esperáramos a q diera l hora de la reservación, una vez q dio l hora nos dijeron q una disculpa q no guardaron nuestra mesa , sin ninguna explicación y nos hicieron esperar 1 hora y media mas!!
DELICIOSO PODRÍA VOLVER ES AUTÉNTICA COMIDA ITALIANA
Nice birthday spot.
Nice Place For Dinner , The Food was Very Good The Server That Took CARE Of Me And My Wife For Dinner was Great But Don't Remember His Name Tall Guy Bold Head With A Beard Very Nice To Us With Great Services! The Only Down Fall Was The Hostess Where Not Pleasant as I Check In For My Reservation For 930pm-Even Though I Was Early And The Young Lady Check My Name And Grab To Men u And Keep Walking as We Where To Follow Her But She Just Keep Walking so We Assumed To Follow Her ( I Wish I can Remember Her Name but Not A Nice Person at All-Also When I made The Reservation For The Open Table I Put In The Comet Box That I Was Celebrating My 23 Anniversary which No One Even Said Anything To US in Re guards To My Wife and I Celebration! May Be I Will Get The Manager On Duty Involved If I Have an Issue. Thanks You For Your Time!
+ High pulse
Nice tune tartare
- Too noisy
Served food little fast. Got the feeling that they tried to rush us out and clear the table
For the money I expected a little better. $19 a drink and bad chicken parm. Which is pretty much the easiest dish you can make.... just though the food wasn’t good.
If interested in a bar scene then this is the place to be...
The food was amazing as always, service today was not up to par.
Great service had John as our waiter outstanding job one of the best service !
Food was very good. We were a party of 6, had a bunch of apps, octopus, tuna tartare, calamari, the Meatball. Everyone seemed to enjoy them. The main courses were good too, filet mignon, chicken parm. The room was nice but we had a bad rectangle table, we felt a bit squeezed in. We should have asked to move. Not cheap. Roughly $100/person with wine, no desserts or coffee.
Sunday night out in city. Me and the lady grab a table at 5:30. Sat in back corner by bus station and squeezed between a 14 top party speaking politics........ when there was ample seating....That’s enough to make for a bad time. Other than that food and service was great. Would go back , but no rush.
Very pleasant. Always enjoy dinner at Lavo
Upon being seated the hosted told us we must leave by 8:30pm because they had another reservation!! I found this extremely rude. Because of this reason I would not go back.
A little bit loud when we got there but quieted when some of the lunch crowd left. Prix fixe was delicious!
Love the food. Great service. Just wish it had the Tao group stamp on it. Like when at tao you felt you where eating in Asia, details were everywhere. LAVO just needs a little more detail in the decor
Great service! Food was amazing!
Been there a few times... I'm over it. If a place like LAVO is going to put a NY Strip on the menu it better be worthy of the name! It was not. I dont mind paying $60 bux for a strip but not this one... was it even "prime", anyone's guess. Pasta came out COLD, Steak was not worthy of a spot on the menu. Caesar Salad was a big disappointment.... (take a lesson from Carmine's...) No need to return.
If you want great food, excellent music, awesome service and lots of fun GO HERE!
I took my daughter and several friends for her birthday and it couldn’t have been better!!! Loved it all!
We were celebrating my husband’s birthday. He thoroughly enjoyed himself, along with our guests.
Our waitress Abbey was exceptional. Her meal suggestions were right on, and attention to detail made our evening even more enjoyable
Excellent customer service, great selections of wines, good food. The noise level was too much but other than that it was GREAT
The best birthday ever
Workers seemed rude and stared like you were poor and less than them
The food and value was good but the wait staff and the service is less than desired. Seems they want people to order bottles of wine during lunch when people are just stopping by for lunch. If you don’t want people ordering from the lunch menu, don’t offer it.
Fried Oreo dessert is a MUST, along with the sea bass
I love Lavo for any occasion. I even order it on seamless.
Great staff and management. The peanut butter chocolate layer cake is Amazing. Food is also great !!
Food was pretty good. Brunch fare. Nothing spectacular. Coffee service was slow as was service in general. Bloody mary could have been better. Beautiful space though.
