What Insiders Are Saying
An import from Nantucket, Sfoglia is one of the few Upper East Side joints that, if transported to downtown, wouldn’t feel out of place.
Food is delicious with good portions. The service is great. My only complaint is about the social table.. too wide to have a conversation.
Food was delicious
Both the short rib and the pasta dish were disappointing. The short rib was not tender enough, needed to be braised much longer to give the right texture and to intensify the taste, and the pasta dish was a little bit too sweet than our preference. Normally, we like everything here at sfoglia, but these two dishes were disappointing
Birthday dinner. Been here twice before. Nice and cute and good food. Good service.
One negative is that server staff comes around a bit to much to ask if you’re done when you still have food on the plate. Other than that, very pleasant experience.
Was my date’s bday and so I brought a cake, asking them to bring it out at the end of the meal.
Free of charge, candles on top, perfectly executed. The food was great, as is the hospitality here. The romaine lettuce and veal special were amazing.
Definitely coming back for another special occasion.
Bravo to Sfoglia!
Nice to see they use wine glasses now! Nice neighborhood restaurant.
New Years Eve
It is a local ues spot that continues to deliver!
Interesting seating arrangements, ability to eat at the bar and a great menu and kitchen. The menu has some seasonal variation and specials and the food and service consistently makes you want to return(which I will)
They switched their menu (unfortunately) for winter. They removed 2 very good soup and replaced it with one with a lot of cream/butter.
Also, the pasta we ordered was barely edible. It was some kind of ravioli, but was very mixed up, with too many other things added and overly greasy.
On a positive note, the kale salad was great as well as their bread pudding for dessert.
Great food and ambience. We went out of our way to dine at Sfoglia on Christmas Eve (we stayed in the Chelsea area). I would have rated the restaurant 5-stars if the service was up to par. The waiter seemed to be more interested in parties greater than 4 (we were party of 4). I think this restaurant is tops surrounding that particular neighborhood but we passed many other just as good restaurants (food wise) that would have been closer and way more attentive service.
Excellent food, too expansive for antipasti and small Pasta, 4 glasses of wine = 220 $
One of my favorite spots on the UES. Delicious food and excellent service. Not too loud. Only negative was the malcontent elderly couple next to us. I’ve never heard such complaining over the silliest things. There’s just no pleasing some people. luckily, they left in disgust after not too long. Maybe a little pricey for regular dining but perfect for special occasions and foodies who want to treat themselves.
Delicious food and great ambience. We arrived early and were seated immediately. It’s good to eat early because it can get a little loud, but it’s still worth it. Pasta dishes are some of the best I’ve ever had.
This is THE BEST italian food I have had so far. The food was super fresh, authentic and down right delicious. They paced the courses so you don't feel rushed.
The service was great, especially the sommelier, the food average and the noise level preposterous. It's the single noisiest restaurant I've been in in my life.
Although I made my reservation far in advance, Sfoglia could not seat my party of 4 in the quieter back room. My guests and I were squashed in at a tin table near the front door. The food was good but it was hard to converse with our relatives who are in the food business in Atlanta.
Just so so. The pasta was underwhelming, a few strands were undercooked. I was so disappointed that I didn’t order dessert: just wanted to get out of there. It is so overrated: take your business and go to a nicer Italian place on the ues.
Very consistent- food is amazing & Service is always consistent highly recommended on the upper east side
Love food, people and atmosphere
Lovely, stylish spot with delightful atmosphere on upper east side for the well-heeled. Food is very good if expensive and not always overly creative. The menu is unusual and limited because it is a small place. Be prepared to eat the specials or excellent pastas and pay for it. The smaller portion for pasta is plenty if you get an appetizer or side.
Wonderful ambiance, terrific serving staff and the most delicious and imaginative food..
Love the chicken and pasta with San Marzano sauce!
Wine was terribly overpriced as well as the food. It’s also very dark in there.
It's a nice restaurant and the hostess was very accomodating and found us a pleasant table, a large table that had two people at one end and three at the other, so sharing, but not at all crowded. It's a pretty room. However, I found the menu limited. I don't eat cheese or shellfish, and that is in almost every dish. Ordered the chicken, one time, and it was fine. But it takes half hour and the waitress wouldn't put the order in when I sat down, and kept trying to talk me into something else, until there really was no time to order it. Ended up with just a salad which was good but I left still very hungry. If the waitress had just put the order in when I asked, would have worked out but there were no options. So make sure the menu is to your liking and be prepared to pay separately for everything: sparkling water which appeared to be free (they offer regular or sparkling, both from the same type of big bottles), every side is separate. But the bread is good!
Food and service were simply excellent.... However, they should take care of things, perhaps less important, like their bathrooms. They were just nasty given the category of the restaurant
Very expensive given the cuisine quality. But great location for the 92nd St Y.
cocktails good but very high-priced, bartender friendly and informative
Good food, great service, and lovely cozy atmosphere.
The food was very good but we felt pressured. I was there with 2 friends from out of town whom I had not seen in a long time and we thought it would be a lovely neighborhood place to go for a nice and relax dinner. While they were very accommodating, one of my friends had health food issues, the waitress just kept on coming by and she drove my friends crazy. She thought she was providing good service when in fact, she just made us feel pressured to eat and get out.
We often come here after or before a concert at the 92Y. Though we were post-concert and not in a hurry, this time we felt rushed. Usually, even if we have a concert to get to, we dine more leisurely here. Otherwise—food was delicious. A couple pasta dishes and a salad and Italian wine from Sicily and Liguria. We’ll be back.
Delicious, original and tasty. Little too much expensive though
Great, friendly service, outstanding food and a warm, quiet ambiance.
Really interesting and creative menu - the food was delicious. All 3 of us really enjoyed our meals. The service was very efficient and the server was really knowledgeable about the dishes and helpful with his recommendations. Good wine list with very good meal pairing options. Dining area is small so tables are cozy.
Very good pasta. Our server was a little odd—hovering too much initially and then disappearing—but otherwise the meal went well.
very nice ambiance, very friendly attentive service, delicious food, a bit too dark, we truly enjoyed our dinner as a special occasion, it would be a little be too pricey to go there often, however, we plan to return. Thank you!
The waiter treated us like we were eating at a diner. She had about 10 seconds for us when she came to take our order and looked so annoyed if we even hinted at asking a question. The food was pretty yummy but I don’t think I’ll be going back
We have been going to Sfoglia since it first opened.
The food and service are generally v good but I have 2 complaints:
1. The restaurant was once better lit but is now way too dark at dinner. It is ridiculous to need my phone’s flashlight function to read my menu. Also one cannot appreciate the colors and appearance of the food in such dim lighting.
2. $18 for the cocktails is also too high for what is essentially a neighborhood restaurant on Lex in the 90’s.
US visit from abroaf

we had a great time...nice having a good restaurant around the corner.....
Never disappoints and first time ordered the special tart of the day... peach! I’m still thinking about it!!😋😋
