What Insiders Are Saying
Massoni is an Italian/Asian fusion restaurant inside the Arlo Hotel.
This restaurant doesn’t exist. It should be taken off the app. Not only that but when I called to confirm the reservation, they confirmed it.
I get there only to find out the restaurant has been closed and they don’t have my reservation.
After not having a place to eat I attempted to make a last minute reservation elsewhere using the app, I couldn’t do this because the app only allows one reservation per evening.
I was on a date and this was incredibly embarrassing.
Extremely limited menu - a few unexceptional pasta dishes - in dreary surroundings. Uninspired cocktail offerings.
Had the buffet breakfast, this honestly just okay. The eggs were cold, and there were not very many healthy options. Mostly bread, bacon, potatoes etc. Also very few gluten free choices.
80% of the menu on Open Table is not available due to major restaurant remodeling - very disappointing. "1000 pt" offer at time of reservation not provided upon receipt of points (100 received).
Lots of better choices in NYC.
good pasta! good pizza! friendly staff.
They are remodeling the restaurant but gave no indication when making the reservation
Their Open Table menu is not up to date. They no longer serve entrees.
Delicious Italian in a convenient location.
Absolutely wonderful experience at Massoni. I tend to shy away from Midtown, but this place has all the sensibility and ambience of any of your LES favorites. Their unique twists on Italian classics are not only unexpected but executed to perfection, such as the brown-butter burrata, curry-infused arancini, and rigatoni osso bucco that puts grandma's sunday sauce to shame. As a native New Yorker I did not expect to like "Detroit style" pizza - I ate my words quite literally. The pie w/ pickled peppers & honey as well as the mushroom & french onion mascarpone came out still bubbling and had an indescribable depth of flavor & texture. Cocktails were on point, service was fun friendly & helpful. Got tipped off to this place by a friend who raved about the talent of Executive Chef Scott McDonald, and to say we were blown away would be an understatement. Overall - Massoni is a MUST TRY. Outstanding meal, outstanding experience.
We loved the mushroom pizza most, but every dish was a delight!
Ok overall experience, nice style but slow service, food ok for a good price
Poor service and bad music. Good food but few selections.
Great food, garlic knots were insane! Squid ink pappardelle was awesome 👌🏻
This place is rightfully hot right now, because the food is absolutely delicious!
We had a great meal with a very good server. We loved our pizzas. Had the mushroom and the pepperoni. Pepperoni was our favorite. Also had arugula salad and biryani rice ball - all delicious. Server was attentive and wonderful to our little infant family member also in attendance.
Pizza was delicious. Happy hour goes til 7 even at tables. Would recommend.
Not great food at all. Greasy. Though the servers were polite and attentive.
Bartenders were awesome
Hosted a lunch with a group of a dozen business women who enjoyed the casual vibe and delicious, organic menu. The service was excellent and we were able to conduct a productive group conversation despite our large table.
Food was flavorful and a comfortable place to dine.
New Year’s Eve 4 course meal:
2 Oysters! Yes, TWO! Really!?!
Wonderful Lamb Risotto
2-3 oz strip steak- Yes, 2-3 oz on NEW YEARS EVE !!!
We saw a typical huge strip steak passing by en route to room service- at least FOUR times the size of our portion—Not Fair!
Finally- dessert was wonderful and out of this world great!
New Years eve
Food was delicious, great for sharing. Server was attentive
A modern Italian cuisine focused on quality, taste and experience. Service outstanding, menu simple yet with flair. The meatball and garlic starter a favorite.
Food was overpriced and it was extremely loud! Initially waiter was attentive but towards the end of our meal couldn’t get his attention.
Good service, wine and coffee. Food was ok but the menu limited and a bit idiosyncratic. Squid ink pasta lacked flavour.
Fun place. Great service. Tiny portions but slightly less than similar type options in nyc. Left still hungry but enjoyed the house wine. Accommodating server!
Decided to get to the restaurant early to escape the crowds and discovered free wine and snacks in the bar! Staff was friendly and helpful. Dinner was tastier and more interesting than we expected. Especially enjoyed the lamb and polenta raviolis and the warm mushroom and kale salad. Worth a repeat visit!
I was supposed to get 1000 points for going to this restaurant and in the end only got 100. Very disappointing. As for the food. It was ok. Not really great Italian, but ok in a pinch.
Amazing thanksgiving board!! We were extremely impressed. Best thanksgiving dinner we’ve ever had
Delicious food—best Brussels sprouts I’ve ever had. Very nice Thanksgiving Dinner with interesting flavors.
This restaurant was located in the hotel we were staying in and was perfect after a long day shopping. Staff very efficient and the food was so tasty and hot. Nice feel to the place... really liked it.
It was very quiet when my friend and I had brunch here, only two - three other tables occupied. The waitress pointed in the direction of the tables so I seated myself while waiting for my friend. Took another waitress maybe five minutes to say hi and bring water. The staff were very friendly and explained my breakfast pizza would take a little longer to cook than other items on the menu. The food was great. The venue and decor is fun. Would be interested to see the vibe when its full.
The food was fantastic. My only complaint was that we waited for the hostess for 15 minutes before anybody sat us. The waitress was great, but if this was Restaurant Wars, Dale would be in trouble for making us wait at the front.
The wait staff couldn't have been nicer. Good food and it was nice to find a restaurant you could actually have a conversation in.
Very good place. Perfect food
Service was friendly and responsive - they were able to make good recommendations. The pizza with Brussels sprouts and pistachio was a delicious surprise of flavor. The rigatoni was perfect for two! While there was a small selection of beer and wine they choices were perfect for the meal.
