Utsav Indian Bar and Grill

Saturday evening. Food was delicious. Room was NOISY. Service was inconsistent/ slow at times. Husband received his beer, but took 5-10 more minutes for my wine to arrive. Would give 3-4 stars for overall experience.
The price fixe menu is a very good value. However, the service leaves a lot to be desired. The servers have no idea who gets what and they deliver the dishes before they clear.
Food was delicious! Esp fish tikka, cauliflour appetizer
We really enjoyed our dinner. Food was very good as was the service.
The food was good but took too long.
Wonderful to be back at Utsav! Never ceases to amaze. LOVED LOVED LOVED it!! The food preparations, taste and presentation are superb. We ordered a variety of starters and mains and they were all so unique. Lamb chops, tandoori broccoli, hariyali kebab, stuffed potato, baby eggplant, daal, poori were all to die for! And topped off with the yummy creme brûlée gulab jamun and rum infused rice pudding! Planning the next visit already!
We enjoyed the ambiance, good service and good food especially the appetizers, coconut shrimp and spinach and ricotta cheese patties! We also enjoyed the rice pudding - delicious with coconut sorbet!
Our go to place for Indian food when in New York City.
Service is slow and appears disjointed but makes up for the quality of the food.
It is pricey but the food was excellent. On thing that bothered everyone - they charge extra for rice! Really, what Indian restaurant doesn't provide rice with their food? Charging for a small bowl of rice seems
Enjoyed our family dinner ... great elaborate menu ... lots of choices ... good spaced out tables for family chatter n privacy !
Professional staff...well trained. prix fixe dinner a can’t be beat! Delicious food.
Great food and great service, perfect for group lunch.
Attractive room; good Indian food but could be spicier; attentive service.
Margin food and horrible service.
One of my favorite Indian restaurants. I like spicy food and my wife likes milder aromatic food and they satisfy both of us. Last night we had a vegetarian in our group and two meat-a-tarians who do not like Indian food and everyone left happy. We have had large groups a few times and we eat there just the two of us about 5 times a year because it is next door to one of the Roundabout Theater Company locations. My only criticism is that their corkage gets a bit expensive when we bring in a bunch of wine collectors for a big dinner and we each bring two bottles, but that's not a problem for normal sized groups that do not BYO or that only bring one bottle per table.
Great pre-theater option
Always so yummy. Great service. Delicious drinks!
This is my new favorite restaurant in NYC. I heard about this place and have been looking forward to dining. I went with a friend and we ordered a bunch of items off the menu. I’m not too familiar with Indian cuisine and the waitress really took time to explain each dish and offered up recommendations.
Bombay Butter Garlic Crab
Chicken Malai Kabab
Crispy Quinoa Aloo Tikki
Vadouvan Spiced Scallops
Very good dishes Personal very kind A very good place to be and try a wonderfull kitchen
We went to the restaurant at 5:30 p.m. to grab a bite before heading to a Broadway Musical that starts at 7pm. We told the staff about our show then he arranged to bring all food promptly, appetizer, salad and entrees altogether. We could finish our dinner and could get to the theater 30 minutes before the show started. Nice service. Food was excellent!! Very good place and I would recommend to my friends.
The place was good and the food was amazing. The pakoda kadhi was my favorite
A diversity of menu options! Crispy cauliflower and corn and mango bhel for starters -- served hot with good flavor. I tried the Nawabi Prawns while my daughter had the Dal Makhani (simmered lentils) over saffron rice. Felt like a home-cooked meal. Service was attentive although not overbearing; pacing was brisk but not rushed. Perfect pre-theater meal. We will definitely return!
Met or exceeded every expectation. Staff was very solicitous in helping one of our party who has celiac and must eat strictly gluten free. Food was delicious we will return. We saw many families, excellent for large groups.
Outstanding in every way, excellent food & service with lovely decor & welcoming atmosphere.one of the best restaurants in new york highly recommended!!
Nice surprise near the theatre district. Ample buffet, attentive service and nice, but worn furniture . Would go again and recommend to others
good food, quiet ambience and closer proximity to mid-town
Excellent sea bass, crab appetizer was best blue crab and a large amount
A very classy nice restaurant. A warm welcoming, followed by an excellent service, with a lot of attention to details on order to please you. The food was great. Lamb chops was mind blowing. Don’t forget to ask for their chefs special. The service always with a smile and very patient with us. Conclusion, if you have the opportunity to go eat there, do not hesitate !
I love this place but....we went on a Saturday night. Tooooo many screaming misbehaving children with parents who completely ignored them. Talk the kiddies to McDonalds NOT a nice upscale restaurant! The children really ruined the evening.
Delicious as usual, perfectly prepared and served with a gracious manner. Overall ambience is really nice - the price fixed is a good value. I highly recommend this restaurant.
The service was great, the food was great and the price was very reasonable for NYC. What more could you want?
We came from a matinee and walked over. It took us a bit to find the restaurant, but was well worth the search. Would definitely recommend Utsav and hope to return!
A friend was visiting us. We visited Utsav. There was stale smell in the restaurant because the AC was not proper. Food was also not great. Paneer masala was very poor. Dal makhani was okay. The garlic naan was not hot. Overall did not enjoy the experience. Felt I paid too much for below average food.
All around, a great experience. Friendly staff, beautiful and roomy restaurant. My drink was a little on the light side (not enough "screw" in my "screwdriver"), but that would be my only complaint. Above all else the food was AMAZING and fairly priced!!!!!
Loved the lunch buffet here , best Indian place to eat near Times Square.
The buffet is outstanding and allows for very time-efficient meals. Desserts can easily be overlooked in Indian restaurants but they shouldn't be here.
Not organized at all ( bazar )
Great place to be! Good food and Excellent Service
The experience here was amazing! Service is on point. The servers know how to help out a customer. Been around the area many times and finally decided to go here. The food is amazingly delicious. Can't wait to be back!
I love the food at Ustav. Tasty and great variations in the menu.
Its a bit disappointing to arrive at the downstairs bar and see holes on the wall. Not a nice sight
We thank you for taking the time to write a review. Yes you are correct about the holes, the railing was dislodged from the wall late last week and the handyman was unable to repair it over the weekend. It's being repaired as I write this.
