Wait staff was very good. Ambiance was very nice. However the food was not so great. Not worth the amount of money spent.

It was amazing !!! The service was 10/10.
What I really notice is the guy with the navy suit. I’m guessing he was the manager, but he made sure everything was running smoothly. He was amazing!

It was loud and busy but that was the charm. It was vibrant and this created a great atmosphere in the restaurant. Food was authentic and tasted great. Tried a Long Island iced tea and it was the best cocktail I have had in New York City.
Would recommend for those looking for a lively bar and restaurant.

I made the reservation almost a month in advance for the last night of restaurant week (February 9). I had made the reservation for 9 PM. We ended up deciding just to order off the regular menu instead of using the price fix menu. The food was amazing. The only thing I will complain about though is that we were not seated until 10:15. I understand that restaurant week means places will be more busy and crowded, but I believe an hour and 15 minute wait after even having a reservation is slightly ridiculous. Besides that, the food and experience was good.

I went during restaurant week.
I made reservations for 8:30pm, we arrived on time and didn’t get seated until about 10pm.
We all opted to do the Restaurant Week’s Prefixe. When the bill came, each order was about $12 over the amount stated for the prefixe. I didn’t even bother to argue of question it. It was my brother’s birthday day and I didn’t want to further be annoyed

The food was good

I don’t know if i would return here, i just wont go back during restaurant week.

The food was excellent as always, but they definitely rushed us, even at the late hour. We had to wait an hour to be seated, even with a reservation. However, our waitress was extremely nice and accommodating.

This was my fourth time at Lavo. We had an 8:00 reservation and waited over an hour for our table to be ready. The waiter we had barely checked on us and refilled our drinks. I was disappointed in this experience.

Good booth, fried calamari frsh and lightly fried. Pasta dish hit the spot and the hamburger was tops. Pity, they had no coffee ice cream.
