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 !
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
A little bit loud when we got there but quieted when some of the lunch crowd left. Prix fixe was delicious!
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.
The music selection was disappointing, very bad DJ
Excellent Luncheon Special with wide choice of delicious food.
Wonderful service, meal and decor! Staff is clearly expertly trained and knowledgeable. Lunch special is an amazing deal and soooooo yummy! Great wine selection!
Crowded bD made it hard to find the host table. Half full the restaurant was noisy once the rest of diners came it it was impossible to have a 2 person conversation
Extra friendly service and wonderful food.
It was a celebrity for my daughter’s 17 th birthday and they did it right ! A night to remember!
Service was great! Love the energy and vibe!
Octopus appetizer was great, fresh and great flavor.
Spaghetti and tomato sauce was also very good.
Will definitely go back.
Outstanding! Our server, Ricardo was warm, welcoming & professional! We arrived for lunch, and we were given a pre-fixed lunch menu & regular menu! Ricardo recommended items on each of the menus!
We decided on pre-fixed, because we wanted specialty cocktails!
Our starter Grilled Octopus was excellent & plentiful! My husband had the ample delicious pizza and I had the encrusted Parmesan salmon, on a bed of zucchini! Delicious!
LAVO didn’t skimp at dessert... I highly recommend the Oreo zeppolli and cheesecake(paired with a dry Riesling)
Thank You, Ricardo for your wonderful service & Brian , the manager for making our first experience at LAVO, a true treat!
Looking forward, to returning soon!!!
Slow service and WAY too noisy, but wonderful food and good location.
Amazing food and trendy atmosphere
The service was wine inexperienced but friendly.
I enjoyed the food and experience but I’d expect better service especially with serving wine.
Food and table service was amazing. Hostess had a bit of an attitucould have been nicer and
It was extremely loud for a restaurant. I understand that it doubles as a restaurant/nightclub but my guests and I assumed that the nightclub space was separate. We could barely hear ourselves over the ridiculously loud dj music. They didn’t give us any bread for the table until we asked for it and that was approximately 15+ mins after being seated. There was also stuff floating in my friend’s water glass and they didn’t have the bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend bottle of wine. Their tables are positioned too close to each other. The family that sat behind us, kept bumping into my back and my girlfriend’s. The only positive of this place was the food. I would not recommend this restaurant/nightclub to anyone.
It’s our first
Good food and service, but very loud. Hostess did not seem to be overly happy, but waiter was attentive and pleasant.
Excellent server who made the evening along with great food
I haven't been to Lavo in a few years and it is still a top notch restaurant. Excellent food, wine, service and ambiance. We were there on Yom Kippur so it was quieter than normal, which we liked. I had the small portion of spaghetti and meatballs and it was the perfect size. My husband and his brother had the crispy chicken and it was outstanding. The fried calamari was cooked to perfection. It's a bit pricey but no more than any other midtown restaurant. Our server was attentive and friendly. Lava is an excellent restaurant with a lively atmosphere.
Great place for a large group, great food and awesome service
Anniversary. We only seen our waitress twice. To take our order and collect our bill. Food was excellent. Was really really loud. We could barely hear each other siting across the table.
Such a great ambiance! And the DJ was perfect .. the pasta wasn’t the greatest I’ve had but also not the worst .. def could have been better..
