Went here as a post Valentine’s Day dinner. The UES townhouse venue was beautiful, food was delicious, service was impeccable. I don’t know how this place doesn’t have a Michelin.
A beautiful dining experience. Lovely floral arrangements, dining rooms - we sat by the big window overlooking the garden - added to a great evening. The staff was extremely attentive and efficient. The food was wonderful - from preparation to presentation. It is pricey - not an everyday place. But for a special occasion, it can't be beat. Can't wait to go back!
Best food in ny
This restaurant only cares about their regular customers. We were greeted very puzzled when we said we were early for our reservation and would have a drink at the bar which every restaurant always encourages. They told us we had to sit at the very end. As we were closing out our bar bill we had to witness a fight between the barmaid and a waiter. She never said Thank you, I am sorry I tipped her. The food was okay but over priced. I never mind paying for good food and good service but the service was not good. Most of the time they forgot about us because they were all over two or three tables of regulars. We live in the tri state area and frequent NYC restaurants all the time. We were treated like we crashed a private party. We ordered apps, an expensive bottle of wine, entrees and desserts. After we finished our dessert and the table was all cleared, we timed that we sat with just waters in front of for 20 minutes with no one acknowledging us. We finally had to ask for the check. Never again.
Incredible dinner. Food and service were the best!
extremely professional and friendly staff --from our greeting at the door to staff clearing the table and everyone in between. Food was outstanding. A little noisy but that may have been due to a large party behind us.
Amazing! One of the most enjoyable meals I've had. New twists on familiar dishes help (e.g. sea urchin instead of clams) prepared to perfection. Terrific service and a huge wine list helped complete the experience. A fabulous date night or special occasion restaurant (both tables next to us had birthdays), I loved it. I plan to go back soon.
As always food excellent, service excellent..dinner at bar so good with B, the bartender and server..make sure to dine here
Restaurant Forgot the two birthdays we had told them about 😢. Never asked, never brought candles, anything. Was with my Dad ( turning 93) and my husband ( turning 71)
Lovely spot near the Met that is a neighborhood restaurant with authentic food and many great choices. Everything was very fresh and the specials were delicious: artichoke soup, veal stew and wild striped bass w spinach and mushrooms. Don’t miss the profiteroles with pistachios and homemade chocolate sauce! Professional and warm service. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch.
Great service. Delicious food. More selections than I expected. Amazing flavor,Another good experience from the start to the end We really enjoyed
Very elegant dining room. Service superb. Food is good but not superb given the price. However, I would return because it was such an enjoyable experience.
Try Sistina and you will feel yourself back to Italy. Very tasty and authentic food, beautiful place, good service.
perfection Great food, great service
The ossobuco was outstanding. As was the gnocchi . The pasta is made in house and was
Cooked as perfection Can’t wait to go back
Restaurant was great with wonderful service and great food but very expensive.
The dining experience overall was very good. The food was superb, although the waiter attending us was a bit rude when we asked some doubts regarding the menu.
New Year's Eve is always fun and festive at this lovely upper east side restaurant..food is always amazing..try the risotto with truffles or the osso bucco
There aren't many places you can go to get quality Italian food. This is one of the Best.
Sistina is the perfect place for any occasion. The service is impeccable. The food is outstanding… Beyond outstanding. You are made to feel like part of the family when you dine there. Such a beautiful and special place! We cannot wait to go back!
They always have outstanding food, outstanding service and a great ambiance. Their Christmas decorations were very tasteful. One of the top restaurants in NYC and UES
Beautiful setting and excellent service. The list of specials is endless. It was hard to pick what to have because everything sounded wonderful. A foodie friend recommended the zucchini flower appetizer. It was perfection. Overall, an excellent place for a special dinner worthy of a special celebration.
Over the top dining experience. A not to be missed NYC treat. Giovanni was delightful in serving us. One of the most beautiful dining rooms I’ve enjoyed worldwide and the food is over the top. We will be back!!!
What a surprising Discovery for us! Amazing
Absolutely an amazing experience. The food was only out done by the service. All around incredible, we will be back! A must!
Overall a superb place. Classy. Excellent service. Great food. A delight
A sophisticated experience from start to finish.
Truly delightful experience.
An excellent dining experience, unfortunately we were
pressed for time or we could have stayed a little longer.
Love Bellarina at the bar and the food is always wonderful.
Sistina is an oasis in the city. Delightful surroundings, wonderful food and attentive service make this a place for any occasion.
Always amazing overall dining experience. Incredible wine list!
Took a good friend to dinner. Excellent experience.
Lovely ambiance. Food very expensive for good but not spectacular quality. Nice extras like taste of soup and little cookies at the end. Surprisingly bread not warm and butter cold.
Beautiful decor, delicious food (and ample portions!) and attentive waitstaff 650 ft from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We will return.
One of the best Italian restaurants in NYC. Always excellent. While a bit pricey, portions are very generous. Service is professional but friendly.
Excellent service by Cuhangir! Well done
Our first time experiencing Sistina , extremely impressed
Classic Italian fine dining with a comfortable atmosphere. Food was spectacular and well worth the price
If your looking for a upscale experience with a relaxed environment in a beautiful spacious upper east side townhouse , this is the perfect place
Five stars from start to Finnish
Excellent food and wonderful service (John was great!)
Our second time having dinner here. This is a gem and should be taken quite seriously. The level of cuisine is amongst the city’s best. Ambiance is enchanting.
