Everything was great!
Everyone's food was way too salty. it is very loud you can not carry on a conversation across the table without having too scream.
8 ladies for a pre-show dinner at 5:30. Food was great, the service was awful. To start off our waiter got one of the drink orders wrong. The person who brought the drinks had no idea which drinks went where and didn’t know what a dirty martini was. My friend had to fix the drink herself by requesting olive juice. The apps came out and were good. By 6:30 our main dishes hadn’t arrived so I reminded our waiter that we had tickets to an 8pm show. He then tells me the kitchen lost our order. What?! They open at 5 and we are there at 5:30. The dining room was mostly empty when we ordered. I ask if we need to re-order and he says no, they have a ticket copy. The food finally arrives and again the server has no idea who ordered what and the waiter got one of the main dish orders wrong. He told my friend that this is what she ordered and she told him there is no way She ordered this pasta. Due to the time crunch, she took the dish anyway even though she really didn’t want it. We inhaled our food without any time to really enjoy it and had no time for dessert. The bill comes- is there a comp for the wrong drink-no, is there a comp for the wrong dish-no. Will never come back here to eat. With so many choices in NYC I don’t know how they survive.
This is my third visit in as many months. Lavo's food and service never disappoints. The Prix Fixe menu is an incredible find for Midtown. They start you off with garlic bread, olives, good parmesan cheese, and a little giardiniera. I would come for that alone! As a starter, the tuna tartare with avocado is outstanding. So fresh and delicious. The Salmon Oreganate is so good I can't convince myself to try anything else. The fish is perfectly cooked, and perfectly seasoned. The Zucchini noodles are just the right complement to such a rich fish. Best of all, the staff are well trained and let you eat in peace. They are there when you need them and in the background when you just want to be left to enjoy your meal. Lavo is definitely my go-to place when I want a nice lunch.
Everything was very good, they raved about thier “Big” meatball, thought it was just ok
The food and service were outstanding. Recommend the clams oreganato and a seafood fredo.
Seating by hostess has improved but food not as good as usual
The whole experience was fantastic and I shall return over and over again.
Extremely loud, food was good, but the noise was too much!! You couldn’t speak to your spouse!! Not sure I’ll come back!
Poor in terms of food quality, ambience, service
Really great food and amazing service.
Went for my lady’s birthday and we had a great time. Food was on point Service was quick and it was just an all around great time. Atmosphere was incredible. Def recommend for a good time out in the city
Great service we love the food we love the vibes and we will always come to celebrate thank you see you soon
Nice spot for a sit down lunch in the area.
Food was excellent and reasonably priced. The eggplant parm appetizer was incredible. Almost a meal by itself! Service was mostly good with a couple of blips. Desserts were awesome.
Perfect great food and service
A little bit stress from the service but great food
This is the third Tao Group restaurant that I have tried & once again I am disappointed. While the staff was wonderful, the food was not. The chicken parmigiana was bland, the pasta (claimed to be made in house) was definitely from a box, the roasted beet salad was supposed to have citrus in it but didn’t. Lesson learned, the third time was not the charm.
This is s a great restaurant with a wide variety of Italian style food.
Food and atmosphere excellent.
One of the best meals I have ever had! Thank you!!
I loved this restaurant and will make it a stop on all my future trips to NYC. The food was wonderful. See my pics and descriptions on “Facebook @ “Road Warriors Guide to Excellent Food.”
Great food. Good service.
The lobster Fra Diablo was delicious
This was my 2nd time here. The food was not the best this time. My filet mignon was salty
Server was really cool, but it is a busy restaurant and you feel a little bit rushed. Everything else is above expectations.
We will come back
Great food music atmosphere
Lavo has a nice diverse menu, but is a classic Italian if you ask. The portions are generous. I had a red snapper dish and my wife went Italian. Salads were very fresh and excellent. The Lobster Bisque was excellent. The "meat ball", their house appetizer is supposedly great. We passed because its pretty big.
Perfect date night!
Lavo has excellent service, food and great atmosphere! Wonderful restaurant
We went to Lavo for a special lunch. The food was excellent and the service was very professional. We had an excellent meal and a wonderful time. Thank you
The food and service was excellent but the noise might prevent us from going back for dinner. We've had drinks in the past. This is by far the most noise we've ever had to try and co exist with.
Celebrated my 7 year anniversary.. Good food, strong drinks, nice staff.. We had a great time
Lavo was a great experience! The ambiance was trendy and energetic- DJ music for a vibrant crowd. The food was excellent- great portions for the price and great bar and waitstaff. I definitely recommend Lavo and also a great place to dance the night away after dinner.
They ruined my birthday
This was my first time back in a few years and it was even more delicious than I remember! The chicken parm was AMAZING! And the carbonara is something I need to get everytime I'm there. And don't get me started on the Oreo zeppoles. Also our server was absolutely fantastic. She seriously rocked and I wish I could remember her name to give her the props she deserves.
Always great experience - good food, service, and ambiance. Great drink selection.
Lavo was amazing food is very good and the staff is incredible. I will be back
Great experience the food was excellent and the service was impeccable
