Sistina Ratings and Reviews
Was absolutely impressed with everything at this restaurant. It is set in a beautiful space, refined . elegant with ample space between tables to maintain a great level of intimacy. Wait staff was very attentive , informed and helpful without being intrusive. The daily specials were outstanding and really provided additional options . Food was simply outstanding. Prepared simply but elegantly with great craftsmanship and care. Excellent wine list. If you want to celebrate a special occasion or person or simply want a fine meal in a beautiful setting you must go here.
We have the privilege of dining often at the finest restaurants and feel that Sistina is at the top of their category for both food and service. They are also the most welcoming. Although we are almost regulars it is our observation that everyone is treated warmly.
A charming restaurant in a Townhouse on the UES. The service was well above average, very attentive, but not stuffy. The food was excellent. Yes, some of the dishes were expensive as you might expect in this neighborhood, but several of the pastas were quite fairly priced. The wine list was expensive and extensive, but there were some at a more affordable price. Many locals were call it a nice neighborhood spot, but I would say for many it would fit into the category for a special occasion.
From the ambiance to the food to the service, Sistina gets an absolutely outstanding rating. The wait staff is friendly and available to make recommendations. The food was amazing. The place is beautiful. We had a wonderful time and would return in a heartbeat.
Sistina offers some of the best food on the upper eastside. Tucked away in a townhouse the dining rooms are beautiful, service is excellent and everything we ordered - from the appetizers, to pasta, fish to desserts was great.
Wonderful afternoon having lunch at Sistina,Service, food was excellent we used to come to this location when was crown our first time on here and we love it we ordered things that where not in the lunch menu our server told us that was possible he was very attentive we had octopus for appetizers and I ordered spaghetti with clams delicious definitely coming back our new favorite restaurant
Service, which is generally good and unobtrusive, was marred by a supercilious maitre d’ who recited the specials as if he were speaking to someone who just drive in from the farm. Then the sommelier refused to acknowledge that a wine was off. We used to love this place but there are too many other choices to waste another visit here.
Our anniversary (Jan 28) dinner was excellent!
Service very good and considerate. the ambience and atmosphere of Sistina is beautiful.
Add to that the kindness and consideration of the staff that presented us with a delicious and beautifully Anniversary cake designed just for us!
Sistina is on our list of repeat culinary experiences!
I requested, and received, a quiet dining location, for a birthday date. We were given that and more. The service , food, ambiance and helpful wonderful staff made the night A wonderful experience. We were literally the last diners to leave the restaurant at midnight and we would have stayed longer if allowed, though no one asked us to leave! Thank You Sistina and all staff!!
I shall return! Doug
