    I arrived a little late to my own reservation and they had let the rest of my party sit which is always a good sign. The server was kind, accommodated us with being able to have one person who was leaving early get a separate check and let the rest of us sit for a while after we had paid. The food was delicious, my mushroom truffle arancini was crisp and rich and the burrata with a sweet squash caponata was a perfect size, creamy and luscious. I also tried a taste of the veal & mortadella meatballs as well as the brussel sprout salad, and all were dishes that I would order again!

    Food was great and service was 5 star. I don't know how they found out it was my belated birthday since my friend swore she did not say anything and that wasn't a birthday dinner at all but the manager sent me a complimentary dessert after coming over to discuss dessert options and even the bus boy wished my friend (by mistake happy birthday). I thought that was a nice surprise and very thoughtful. they were attentive but never did i feel we were rushed. one thing that i thought was weird was that they sat us so close to another table for 1-2 (like inches) without any barrier, it felt like we were at the same table as them meanwhile there was plenty of space to sit the other party somewhere else. it's especially doesn't make sense since they asked us to wear our masks until we get to the table where im almost rubbing elbows with a stranger which defeats the purpose of the mask while walking to the table.

    TLDR- ok good but there are better experiences. Our experience at L’Amico was very mixed. The hotel bar was closed, so all guests hanging in the hotel lobby and the restaurant patrons were using the same tiny bar with only one bartender. Our waiter was rude, he said because he was “criticized” that our party brought their drinks from the bar instead of letting him take care of us. The food was great, our only saving Grace.

    Food was ok. Overshadowed by our terrible experience. Started out when we got to the bar early and tried to order drinks. They refused to serve us bc “we were not sitting” despite the fact that we had reservations and there was ample standing room at the bar. Then the hostess didn’t have our “updated” reservation from 5 ppl to 6 ppl which had been confirmed by email from OpenTable. They blamed OpenTable saying we don’t use them. They tried to “help us” and pushed 2 small rounds together. Ok fine, then we sit down and ceiling is leaking water from the rain on 2 ppl… then 4 then all of us … including extremely hot water that was dripping from the electric heater … I said we were ok with a little drip, but the scalding water was not. They finally moved us inside … we ate and then left. No apologies or attempts to make up for the terrible conditions, from the manager or hostess not even a free drink! Literally put a damper on the night and left us with a bad taste. Hate to complain, but this was bad enough to warrant a review.

    We were seating 30 minutes after our reservation. We were not only people this happened to. Appetizer was pizza, came out a little burnt on crust, but other than that very good. Entrees were delicios. It seemed like they were understaffed. Several parties hadn't been seated and there were multiple tables open.

    Great meal in NYC. Was looking for something close to Penn Station and this fit the bill fir what we were looking for. We shared two appetizers- buratta and prousitto got three main dishes plus three of us made a cocktail with dinner. Everything was very good including the atmosphere. Service was good considering how busy it was. I would go back here again when in the city. I want to try the pizza on a return visit.

    Food was good quality, not spectacular. Would recommend the mushroom pizza. Helping sizes could have been a bit larger for the appetizers but the entrees and desserts were well proportioned. The server was very friendly but relatively new so not overly knowledgeable about the menu.

    I arrived a few minutes early for my 7 pm reservation and the noise in the restaurant was so bad that everyone was shouting to their companions, and it was so crowded that there was no place to wait. They seated me in a part of the restaurant where some kind of an alarm was going off, piercing my ears. I asked to be seated elsewhere (I wasn't the only one; most of the people in that area were trying to bail out of the area). However, they were overbooked and no tables were available in the outdoor area, which was the only place that was moderately quiet. So I left without being served. It was a bad scene.

    One main complaint - portion sizes were extremely small. Ordered the scallops for $36 and received 3 medium sized scallops. It was the size of a small appetizer. Son ordered filet mignon which also was terribly small for $40. 2 very small pieces. Recommended the restaurant to friends who also complained to me about the serving sizes - they ordered pasta. Afraid I wont be coming back after enjoying the restaurant for years. Penny wise and pound foolish.

    I do not recommend this place. We booked this restaurant for our Thanksgiving dinner and it was not money well spent. We arrived and had to wait 45 minutes before flagging down our waiter to order. The first part of our 72 dollar menu was focaccia - this never arrived so we eventually had to request it ourselves, and it was not focaccia but just toast bread (a small triangle per person). We ordered our menu choices - the appetizers were very good and the mains too. Unfortunately the only vegetarian option for the main tasted the same as the only appetizer on the menu (both were butternut squash dishes). With the fixed menu came 3 family-style sides - we received two bowls of mashed potatoes and the Brussel sprouts and spaghetti squash never came. We asked the waiter and he informed us the spaghetti squash was finished and no more was available - he never informed us when the potatoes arrived that this dish was never going to come. We waited more and the Brussel sprouts also never came - we asked again and they said the kitchen was also out. After we finished our mains we were also informed they no longer had apple pie, meaning 2/5 of our table didn’t receive the desert they requested. At the end of the night we had paid 72pp for a fixed menu which was missing 3 components, and where we had to flag our waiter down 7 times to request missing or “delayed” items which were never going to arrive anyway. When we requested our wine to be crossed from the bill the waiter informed us the menu was “cheap” to begin with and that he was waiting for our whole party to arrive to take our order (we still waited for 30 minutes to order as a whole party before we had to finally request our order to be taken). Very disappointing for our Thanksgiving evening - our experience could have been salvaged with a pleasant customer service at the end of the evening, but sadly that was not the case! Good food but not what we paid for or expected.
