Ortzi is a Basque inspired Spanish restaurant from James Beard award winning chef Jose Garces located on the lobby level of the brand new LUMA Hotel Times Square. The forty-five seat dining room is built around an open kitchen focused on a rustic, yet elegant approach to the cuisine of the Basque country and Northern Spain. In the lobby of the hotel, Ortzi offers a more casual, first come, first serve bar and lounge serving the same menu as the dining room and centered around a beverage program inspired by the wines and spirits of Northern Spain and Atlantic France. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner are served daily and reservations are for the dining room only.

Been here several times whilst staying in Lima Hotel on a long weekend to NY. I’m gluten and dairy intolerant and the waiters are knowledgeable about how to adapt meals to be safe. All the food we have had has been truly delicious . The paella is AMAZING, the best ever, but it’s a share size . Well done to all. Keep up the good work.

The restaurant is well located and decorated.
There's a kid's menu, which helped in our case.
The menu was ok and the food was good. The paella wasn't great, but the octopus was very good. The "lechugas" (salad) was delicious. The chef sends a few bites to taste that were good. Nice experience, nothing extraordinary.
Would go back gladly.

My friends and I went to Ortzi last Friday evening (11/1) to celebrate a birthday and I have to say that the service, the food and the ambiance were all 5 Star! I called ahead to let them know about the special occasion and they offered a party package that included balloons, a polaroid camera and film and a bottle of Cava for the table. It was set up so pretty and my friend was so happy. The food (tapas) were amazing and the service was wonderful! They also have happy hour at the bar which is difficult to find in the area. I will most certainly be back with my friends!

Great meal. Three of us shared 6 plates. All were quite good. Portion sizes were modest. Nice wine choices on the menu as well. Only criticism was they served the food too fast - our wine hadn’t even been brought to the table and two of our plates arrived.

We all did the tasting menu at Ortzi and it was fabulous! Great selection off the menu and definitely more food than we expected - you will not be hungry afterwards. They have some of the classic tapas you'd expect - albondigas, tartare, mushrooms. Even if some dishes were expected, they did a great job of making them their own

I have dined at Village Whiskey in Philly a few times and LOVED it, but unfortunately, was disappointed in our experience at Ortiz. The hostess was very kind and friendly as were the other servers. The food, however, was not up to standards. My husband's omelette was very small. (Perhaps only 2 eggs, instead of the expected 3?) I ordered eggs over medium, but they were barely over easy with runny whites. (I did not send them back because we had waited a while and I needed to eat. ) After the meal we asked for the restroom, were sent down a small, thin staircase to the basement where it smelled of dead fish and the restrooms were filthy with no paper towels. (Side note: this is in a hotel so perhaps the maintenance of the restrooms are on the hotel, but.......)

We had some cocktails and small plates in the lounge, which had good selection of cocktails, wine, a couple of beers and food as well as really nice service. Despite having a relatively full Lounge, we have no delays and service and our food came really quickly. They also have a pre theater dinner menu as well as post theater option. And they have happy hour until 7. Definitely recommend trying this place out before or after a show

Food was fine and worth tasting. Cider was in fact very overpriced "apple vinegar". Units of measurement confusing 1/4 or 1/2 of bottle, but looks bottle was small itself - 1/2L?

We ordered the Tasting Menu and what a wonderful choice. Many many plates of incredible food. My husband and & I had spent 15 summers in Spain, and wanted our friends to taste good Spanish food. This was superb. Our waiter even had the chef accommodate my friend who couldn’t eat shellfish. You must dine here.

As usual, Chef Garces does not fail to create a menu that is filled with unique and thoughtful combinations that bring big flavor, a myriad of textures and balance all combined into beautifully presented plate after plate. The drinks did not disappoint either and the staff were all well trained and welcoming. This is a new favorite place

I always love the ambience here; prices are super reasonable and you get what you paid for-the food is good quality; also the service is top notch; they’re always asking you if everything is good but not to the point where they come to your table all the time; one day of my favorite go-to places;

Location is great and we loved the modern feel of the restaurant. Food was just ok at best. Much better Spanish restaurants elsewhere in the city. If you’re looking for decent food and don’t have high expectations or you’re staying at the hotel, it’s not a terrible choice. We are locals and with all of the great restaurants where we could drop $250 for four people, we expected food to be good. It’s more about the place than the food here.

I have never been disappointed, so there is not much more that I can say, except go and enjoy.

I really enjoyed the food and the ambiance of the restaurant and will make another reservation for next month. However, I came from the theater and was returning to the theater for the 2nd part of a play. The restaurant was not opened yet so I went to the bathroom. It was not really clean, and that was my first impression. I understand it is also in a hotel but there were about 15 weary travels taking up the seating area with all the luggage. It seemed sloppy.
