Basque
Ortzi is a Basque-inspired Spanish tapas bar & wine 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.

    The place is small but very attractive, modern and comfortable. Some tables are pretty close to each other wich gives it a Mediterranean vibe despite the contemporary design. I have never before had Basque food and I liked it a lot. I especially recommend the BUÑUELOS DE BACALAO and the PATACAS. Worth a visit!!

    Plumped first this restaurant at the last minute and wasn’t disappointed. Nice place and good value... went for the squid and Serrano gam for starters both of which were nice. For main my wife had the duck and I went for the Spanish octopus. Both cooked very well ... duck was very soft and seasoned well and my octopus perfect... creamy mash paired the two dishes well and washed down with a house wine as original choice wasn’t available which was a shame. Nevertheless a good value place with good food. Would recommend

    The service was excellent. The server was attentive but not intrusive. There were a number of excellent wine options. Our all around favorite dish was the Patacas. Everything cooked to perfection, flavorful, and excellent variety of mouth feel. Truly excellent. The other orders were small and underwhelming but The Cordero was also enjoyed.

    We celebrated some birthdays as a family a table of 8. We shared several plates, bottles of wine and dessert. It was a great night! The menu had great variety. Some of my favorites were the Pulpo- octopus, the Jarmon croquettes you really can never go wrong ordering these!!, the septa’s- wild mushrooms, bisteca - hanger steak. Atun- tuna. These were my favorite. Well seasoned. Cooked to perfection. Especially the pulpo.- which is hard to get right. We also enjoyed the tortilla, gambas, cochinillo, and a salad. The grapefruit gin and tonic was so good I had two! So fragrant!! We will definitely make it back.

    We went for Restaurant Week. The service was good. Only had to ask twice for sweetener for my tea, but when I did get it, they brought me simple syrup as I had requested. Perfection! The food was yummy all round. I highly recommend the risotto. Although a bit loud for me, my main gripe is those bloody high chairs. I'm not a toddler. I like to put my feet on the ground. Although you could request a different time to get standard seating, that was all that was available at our reservation time. All In all, we would probably go back again for the prefixe or the after theatre specials sometime.

    We dined at Ortzi during Restaurant Week and so had a prix fixe meal, which was quite exquisite. While I couldn't help but peak at the regular menu and wonder 'maybe I should just do that,' the prix fixe selections were ample and we left the restaurant completely satisfied. From the Serrano ham an manchego cheese appetizer to the Branzino over orzo with calimari and mussels, every dish was very flavorful. The mushroom paella was a knockout. I was suspect ... mushroom paella? ... but wow, the mushrooms had an amazing roast flavor that was out of this world. Sad story: We asked to take the leftovers home but they never came back to the table and we walked out without them! The flan. I'm not a flan fan (say that 10 times fast) but I could eat this flan every day of the week.

    Incredible meal! Everything was great from the warm welcome to the attentive service and delicious food. Random decision to have dinner with a friend visiting- I will DEFINITELY be going back for more meals. We took advantage of the nyc restaurant week pre-fixe and left with full bellies, and a little tipsy from the craft cocktails. Highly recommend!!

    I dined with two other people, one of which returned the next day, as the meal was delicious. This was my first visit and it will not be my last. We dined during Restaurant Week and even though the selections were limited, they were excellent and the choices were a great example of the quality of the overall menu. The service was excellent and the wine and cocktail selections were very good, with prices in line to other NYC restaurants of this caliber.
