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.

My first time at any Jose Graces’ restaurants. The service staff was very friendly, waiter asked if I had been here before, & when I said no, he was very patient explaining the different parts of the menu....,tapas, charcuterie, main courses, etc. the fried artichoke amuse buche was spicy & crunchy at the same time. The foie gras appetizer was tasty, but in my opinion needed some kind of sauce. The olive oil & balsamic drizzle wasn’t enough. For a main course I had the bronzino, seared and served with chick peas & thinly sliced cucumbers. The fish was very tasty & fresh. Way too many flavorless chick peas. The dessert flan with pistachio was also tasty but a bit dry. The prices here are very reasonable. I’ll wait until the kitchen works out all of the kinks before I return.

I work close by and there is always a lively scene happening at the bar and lounge. I decided to give it a try. My nephew was in town and he is a bit of a foodie. I was not disappointed. In fact, it expected my expectations. I look forward to going again and again.

We ate at this restaurant about a month ago and enjoyed it very much. We were going to the theater very nearby and decided to try it again. Delicious food, unusual recipes, good wine selection and service. I recommend the place and will definitely be back when I am in the area.

Only a limited brunch menu. They were out of the first two things that we ordered. Not sure why they didn't tell us they were out of things before we ordered. $12 for pancakes that barely had any fruit on it. Unimpressed and won't be back.

I stumbled upon this place in my search on opentable. I have been looking for a good basque restaurant and this was great. With so many restaurants at this price point, this place stands out. The food options are great such that almost anyone will find something they like (everything looked great to me). As soon as I saw the plates, I felt the food was going to be great and it didnt disappoint. The coffee which they make themselves and the desserts were also excellent

Found this gem perusing OpenTable for restaurants nearby while having a glass of wine at the rooftop lounge at the Knickerbocker Hotel. The food was outstanding - not a bad dish of several small shared plates. A perfect way to end our conference week.

Well, I guess we had high hopes reading the other reviews online.
I have spent quite a lot of time in the Pyrenees and in the Basque region over the last decade and I love the area, I have always had good experiences in Basque restaurants and bars.
But unfortunately we didn't have a great experience at this restaurant.
There was a list of 5 french rose wines; great!
Except that only one was in stock, and none of the ones we wanted.
It went on like this.
If you are going to have a wine list, please stock at least half of the wines.
Overall a disappointing experience and I won't be returning.
I don't think the staff who we met had had much understanding of where the Basque region is, or its culture. Maybe some more pinxtos on the menu would help add some variety.

We visited Ortzi before going to theater. They serves tapas so it's ideal when you want to have something quick, but good, in a nice-atmosphere restaurant. Food was nice. It was not so crowded so we could talk without screaming. Definitely one of the option for pre-theater.
