Can't say enough good things about this place. Initially trepidatious based on the mega-size and touristy feel, the place truly over delivered. Food was exceptional and portions large (home made pasta was crazy good). Service was prompt but not fussy and expedient without being rushed. Room was buzzy but not noisy. Server provided comped pasta dish from the chef which was extraordinary and we would have easily paid for it as a main course. Wine choices solid and not crazy over the top price wise. Scene is a little Jersey, but otherwise a great choice (especially for groups) for delicious food and a nice time.

My fiancé and I went here with a few friends and family after I proposed. The food, drinks and staff were amazing. An excellent experience that I would highly recommend for all occasions.

Great for a special day! The brunch menu had some really good plates to share and their special pork was more than enough for our party of 7.

The service was also outstanding and the atmosphere led to a beautiful evening.

Leuca never fails to deliver. As usual, our dinner was excellent on all levels: service, food, ambiance, overall quality. The William Vale Hotel hit a home run with this space.

Food was fantastic!! Service was outstanding!! Not only were they highly accommodating to a woman in our party with mobility issues, they were highly receptive to or rushed timeline as we were heading to a concert immediately after. Everything from A to Z was perfect! I will be back!

The service was so bad. It was kind of shocking. They sat us 20 minutes late. Wouldn't bring bread or anything until we gave them the entire order. We had an an allergy at the table and the server didn't check in once to let us know what could or couldn't be eating. Took an hour between appetizers and entrees and they brought the pastas out with the entrees which were supposed to be a mid course. For a place of this caliber and at this price point that level of service feels kind of unacceptable to me. Food was good, but when the overall experience is that lacking its just very disappointing.

Outstanding dining experience, I can't rave enough about the duck! The Sommelier was fantastic, gave me the perfect pairing for our main course. Extremely friendly staff all around, great ambiance, would recommend Leuca 100 out of 100 times.

Everything from start to finish was amazing. Waiter was very nice & attentive. He definitely knew the menu very well. Tina app was amazing, great flavors & texture combos. Both halibut & steak entrees where solid. Well prepared and paired with tasty sides. Chocolate bar for dessert with gelato was the perfect sweet ending with out being too intense. Over all 5 stars and praises to the chef

I love the food here, it’s like I’m in Italy. Very tasty, with little details that add to overall taste. Also, It’s great that’s there’s no rush to serve you super fast and give you a check even though you haven’t even finished your desert, like in many manhattan restaurants. Beautiful interior and friendly staff, got a drink and a desert for a birthday celebration. Lovely atmosphere. Will be back many times.
