    If this restaurant could only figure out how to have more welcoming hostesses, it would be a top notch place. Every time I have been, whomever is at the host stand (and it is not only one person), acts as if they are entirely annoyed by the fact that someone came to the restaurant and that waking us to the table is some kind of massive inconvenience. It’s really not a good vibe. Once at the table, everything is fine. But horribly chilly and unkind front of house.

    We went the day after Christmas for lunch.. we reserved a table but decided to sit at bar instead.. ordered a delicious bottle of wine- we shared their salad - sooo good. my husband ordered the yellowtail and wanted to order a second! I had the short rib agnolotti… same ; ) Lovely day! Met a cool couple who shared their bottle of wine (so I could taste a Sicilian wine and yes - our bottle got finished)

    This might have been the best meal ever. They served 3 types of bread all fresh . We order a couple cocktails that were very good. We both had the homemade pasta which was the perfect portion and delicious. Then we had a orange moose dessert. Everything was exquisitely presented and had its own twist. So worth it!

    The food was absolutely delicious!!! The portions were toddler size. $48 for about 6 bites of pasta is ridiculous. We had our grown sons and they had to hit a food cart when we left. (We did have appetizers as well)

    Very accommodating, I wasn't too happy with the table I was given, upon request we were immediately moved from the very small table of a 2 top (there was 3 of us) into the main dining room and treated very fairly. The food was amazing and the service impeccable! Can't wait to go bak!!

    The food was outstanding. My only complaint was that we felt a little rushed. Bus boy wanted to take the food we were still working on, and the waitress was advancing the courses quickly and didn't ask if I wanted more wine, which I did. Slow it down a bit, and everything will be fine. Still highly recommended.

    Had an 8:30 reservation didn’t get seated until 9 & this was the case for every other party as well so a the people waiting to get seated have to awkwardly stand around right next to people dining. Also after waiting 30 min for our table we never got a water & had to flag down a man who appeared to be the manager who took our order himself.

    Food was delicious. Octopus and yellow tail appetizers, lobster pasta and oxtail pasta and halibut dishes were all tasty. And the service was very attentive and top notch. Seats are a little close together and no offer to check our coats but fortunately there was just enough room on the bench to pile them up at the dinner table.

    Let me start by saying I LOVE Scarpetta. I have been many times and I am usually not disappointed. However, this last visit left me underwhelmed. It started when I arrived and had only 3 of my party of 4 and was refused seating. I would understand if I had a table for 8 and had half the party. But I was missing one person who was running late in midtown traffic. Once seated I tried to order a very nice bottle of wine. The so called sommelier shows up and tells me the wine I want is not available. So I order another, that one isn’t available. This goes on for 3 more times! Why even have a printed wine list?? I finally jumped up another 100 per bottle and ended up drinking 2. But really? Food was amazing as always. Don’t ever leave here without the spaghetti. Even if you just get it to share. The steak was perfection. Lastly….and this is a drum roll moment. I got the bill. I place my credit card in the slot and waited for the server to return. She returned with 2 credit cards and a split bill. I am perplexed. Is this a magic trick? I looked at the other card and it didn’t belong to anyone in our party. I tell the server and she tells me there were 2 cards in their when she picked it up. I explain it’s not mine. She comes back with 2 checks I have to sign to make up for their mistake. Now… what if I was a bad person? I could Have accepted the split bill and walked out with someone leaves credit card to go shopping. Of course I am not, but there are bad actors out there. All in all the service was not anywhere near my expectations as a prior guest. Scarpetta is better than this. I am only leaving feedback to hopefully allow them to get it right. I did ask to speak to a manager and a very nice young lady apologized and said they would make it up to me next time I am in town. Not sure how that will work out.. but she was nice and bought me a drink at the bar.

    Overall, a great experience and really good food and service. Drinks are a bit pricey. I found it odd that the bar within the establishment is not associated to Scarpetta. This is our second time there and we would go back. I also noticed an extra charge on my bill after I got home. Next time I’ll check more thoroughly.

    Scarpetta was fantastic! Expectations were seated with impeccable service, even as we walked in the last few minutes of lunch, we didn’t feel rushed by the staff. Although I remain considerate of your time, I was assured every step of the way to remind Mel to take my time and enjoy the experience. The food is good and I think that this concept is executed very smartly. It was a parent that there was a table of food critics there while I was getting ready. While the manager on duty was conferring with them about their experience, he didn’t hesitate to walk over to our table to see how everything was. I’m also impressed with the fact that they don’t charge for water. I think that’s very smart in modern day restaurant management. The food was amazing and overall a very good experience. Highly recommended!
