We had a blast! Our server John was awesome! We were in the city 18 months ago and had so much fun and coincidentally John helped us both times and I’m happy to say this trip was as fun as we expected, even with Covid restrictions. I’m only in NYC once a year or two but I will continue our tradition of making a reservation for Lavo when I am here.

Need more side dishes. But other than that the food is great.

This is by far mine of my favorite restaurants in NYC and I wanted to celebrate my anniversary with my guy here as he’s never been. We made reservations for 5pm, arrived at 4:55pm and when I called the establishment to inform them that I was outside standing in the rain they told me that the doors will open at 5pm on the dot. Ok, understood. The doors opened at 5:06pm and we were seated by 5:10pm. This may sound like no biggie but why make customers make reservations at 5pm when that time slot doesn’t even exist as we clearly had to wait outside in the rain to be let in??? All in all food was good but please be a little more empathetic to those making timely reservations. Thank you,

This place was perfect for my anniversary. The mood was set dim and beautiful, very romantic. The food was incredible! One of the best Filet mignon dishes I have ever had. The service was quick, kind, and genuine. I highly recommend especially if you’re looking to impress your date.

The team was amazing. Really attentive but not at all intrusive. All of them were very friendly. An FYI-they do have a security guard strolling up and down, again not intrusive and you wouldn’t notice him either. And I think it’s very thoughtful of them to have one. Food was really good. Street was quiet so no traffic noise. Actually I enjoyed Lavo much more that night than I did when it’s indoors and crowded and loud. You can enjoy the food and conversation. :-)

The staff was amazing, food great & safety and following protocol was done well. Oh and the bartender made amazing drinks. Perfect pairing to the food. Oysters were fresh, calamari fried perfectly, pasta was great. Had the parpadelle this time around and it didn’t disappoint. We enjoyed overall experience and would recommend.

My family and I had the most amazing dining experience because of our server Jake and Ken the manager. Because of them including Felix our bus boy, we recommend LAVO to our family and friends. The food was absolutely amazing and it was nice to get away for just one night and feel welcomed and safe from COVID. Thank you so much and we will definitely be back!!!!!

The food was very delicious and well presented. The service was excellent also. The noise level is high with the DJ playing music with high bass which makes it difficult to hold a conversation with the person sitting across from you. Overall I would recommend it to friends and I would likely come back.

Hostess was an absolute shrew, so that got things started on the right foot! Gave us a face that could stop a clock rather than just seating us (with a reservation for 8) on an otherwise slow Monday night.

Food was sub-par compared to LV location. Only saving grace was our server, who provided solid recommendations and was attentive. Plenty of other places in NYC for Italian.

This was a great place to have a NYC Sunday brunch. Cocktails were good and well priced and the variety on the brunch menu was good with something for everyone. We'll be back.
