Overall, food was really good. Nice cool ambience with great upbeat music playing. My only complaint was that I felt that the waitress did not check on our table enough (no biggie) HOWEVER a patron came into the restaurant with a dog that was not a service animal (biggie for me). That maybe fine for some but I’m not big on pets and food. I was so aggravated by it. I didn’t know that pets were allowed. Had I known, I’d probably skip out.

This was our first time back since Covid. The food and drinks were amazing. Our server’s suggestions were on point. I forgot his name, but he checked in on us often to make sure we were ok. I left satisfied.

I had the most amazing experience dining at LAVO. First of all, the restaurant is so spacious and the tables were all spread out - so I felt extremely safe. I started with the mixed green salad with apples, which was fresh and delicious. I then had the branzino with a side of the truffle fries. The fish was light and flavorful and the fries were fantastic. I finished with the fried Oreos, which were delightful. My server Christina was wonderful - she was extremely friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. She made certain that everything was perfect - and it was. I look forward to going back to LAVO very soon.

Love LAVO! The food was amazing and great customer service. It was my first time here and I loved it. We had the cheese platter which was amazing and pasta. We finished our dinner with the 20 layers chocolate cake. The bartender gave me two rounds of shots and a frozen drink. We definitely left tipsy 😂 I had a great time and will deff go back

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.

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!!!!!
