Vino e Grano - Eataly Downtown NYC
It’s a ‘food court’ type restaurant. Ambiance is not really their thing! Very good food and attentive service.
We tried 4 different items to share and everything was excellent: calamari, pizza topped with buratta and anchovies, penne pasta with rabbit ragu and bistecca with pomme frites. I had a glass of moscato.
The service was excellent. The ambiance felt homey. We’ll be happy to come back!
This restaurant is near our office and we brought a business guest there for lunch. It was a very nice experience and we will return in the future. The food is great and the service excellent and nonintrusive.
Poor quality food. Burnt chicken dish was overly salty and inedible. Waitresses filled glass of wine and charged for 2nd glass without asking. Is in a mall and didn’t have a great ambiance. Would not recommend to anyone besides my worst enemy.
Very nice place to have lunch with friends and/ or family. Waitress was adorable, food a little pricy but excellent and don't forget to raid the Italian market before or/and after you eat!
I have been twice in the last 2 weeks. Delicious food. Hostess is extremely rude. Both time. The second time she lectured me that it was Open Tables fault for over booking and despite a reservation we waited 20 minutes. Food is worth it but she is clearly in the wrong line of work
Food was not as good as usual - over salted. The menu has also changed from what they used to have and very limited in options. I miss the old menu.
Food and drinks came promptly, but server never came back to refill drinks or check on food. Great place, though. Would return.
Incredible food. Just okay service. Would definitely go back. It’s not cheap but worth what you pay.
Cibo italiano al 100%, come mangiare a casa.
My friends and I decided to take advantage of Happy Hour at the Vino e Grano. We were seated at one of the high top tables, next to the bar, and loved it. Their meat and cheese platter is definitely worth it for sharing. We were planning on ordering a pizza to split, but opted for more red wine instead. Our waitress was very attentive, answered all our allergy-related questions, and was very quick. Thursdays are usually busy but noone hurried us out. We would definitely come back!
Service was great and the vibe was cool!
Muy escaso el plato. Nos quedamos con hambre
We shared three plates and each of us said that each plate was the best of that item we had ever had. The server was helpful and friendly and didn't try to oversell. Pricing was a bit high for the wines, but overall a very nice meal and worthy .
Food was delicious as always. Because we made a reservation we got a great window table and while the day was gloomy, we appreciated the attention to detail of giving us a good seat. The service was slow, for two people with 1 app and 2 entrees we were there for almost 2 full hours. We appreciated not being rushed through our meal, but when we wanted to order more or get the check would could never find our waiter. The delicious food and wine more than made up for it and we weren’t in a hurry or watching the clock so all-in-all, we had a great meal.
We had a great time at Vino e Grano at Eataly. The food was great, atmosphere was lively and fun but not too loud, and the food was reasonably priced. The reason that I won't give the restaurant 5 stars is for allergy related reasons.
My brother is highly allergic to peanuts and tree nuts. Upon ordering drinks and an appetizer he mentioned this to the waitress, who simply told him about a general cross contamination of the complimentary bread that was served. He proceeded to not eat the bread, and when the waitress came back he ordered his meal. He ordered the Chicken Milanese. The waitress came back a couple of minutes after he ordered to tell him that the chicken Milanese was fried in the same oil as the calamari. We were confused why she was telling us this and asked for further explanation. All she could say was that there is a cross contamination. We said that calamari wasn't a peanut or tree nut, and asked again what the cross contamination was about. She told us that all of the bread products are made off site, and are made along with nut-related ingredients. The bread that is cross contaminated is also used for the bread crumbs in which the chicken was breaded.
We almost got up and went to a different restaurant for dinner. It's continually frustrating to go out to eat to places that aren't mindful of allergies, and to have wait staff who is vague and clearly confused about the ingredients of the food. The waitress said they "can't guarantee" any of the bread products haven't touched nuts. I know they say this for the restaurant to cover themselves in case something happens, but it's really frustrating to sit down at a restaurant and have no options of what you can eat or order.
Our waitress finally told us that he could order any "gluten" dish - meaning the pasta was fine to order and that was just about it. With the waitress being so clearly confused about what had nuts and didn't have nuts, my brother was then nervous to order anything at all.
Came for lunch; wish we selected anywhere else. The obnoxious people next to us were either watching YouTube videos or FaceTiming people at full speaker volume. Every table around them were completely bothered, but no one from the restaurant said a thing to them to advocate for their other diners. We asked twice for it to be addressed. Food was fine, but nothing we would come back for. Caesar salad was not dressed consistently, and pizza was a bit soggy.
Very nice italian food, but in a relaxed atmosphere
Sucks never get there prefix menu sucks I waited over an hour for my fish && it was over cooked dry dry dry yack
I have eaten at the Vino e Grano bar and loved it.
I wanted to take advantage of their November special, and reserved a table in their restaurant. Great food and lovely experience.
A must if you are in NYC!
We frequent the restaurants often but this time was a clunker. We decided to go with the promotion menu for this visit. My soup was very salty and the main dish of chicken was so-so. I'm not one to complain or make a scene so I kept quiet. The service was mediocre as I had to constantly ask for items: salt, oil. It was their best effort.
Nice servers but seemed overwhelmed - sevice was slow and second course came out before first course.
Really enjoyed dining here. Food, staff and atmosphere were great.
Food was special and the overall ambiance is fabulous.
Salad had no dressing. Tasteless.
The food was just not good. It tasted as though it was rushed out of the kitchen.
Depending on the time of the day and the crowd, this could be a very nice place or a very crazy one. Wednesday night the service was slow, the waiter pushed bottled water over tap a bit too hard, and the noise was way too much. Mostly loud music. Food and wine were good though
Set in a market and fun to see all the Italian cheeses and food. I’ve been here several times with out of town guests. I wish they had better salad and/or veggie items.
Nice and airy, service was timely, everyone's friendly, good food.
The service was excellent, however the food was so so,
Would have liked to be at a high top near the wine bar, was sat in the back more like a restaurant feel
Great food. Enjoyed the wine too! Great to be able to shop after dinner. 😎
The food was absolutely delicious and the staff was excellent! Sergio was our waiter and he was incredibly accommodating. Thanks for showing our visiting family and friends an amazing dinner experience!
Amazing amazing food! Polpo was perfectuon
Good spot to stop in while visiting the area. Food was good. The $16 glass of Rose was not even a full pour. That was very disappointing.
We had a great time, the staff was wonderful and the food was amazing!! Don't forget to walk around the area and get some gelato or a cannoli after dinner!
Always a good time catching up with friends at Vino e Grano.
