Travertine’s seasonal menu celebrates the crisp, clean flavours of the Italian Mediterranean. Open only a short time, Travertine has already caught New Yorkers attention. "New York Magazine"’s “Where to Eat 2010” singled out Travertine as one of the top new Italian recommendations for the year; Metromix has rated Travertine’s Garganelli as “one of the most memorable pasta dishes of 2009” and "Time Out New York" describes the Monkfish Tail Entree as “technically flawless”

Travertine is a “casually elegant space featuring vintage-leather banquettes, reclaimed-maple floors and crystal chandeliers”("Elle Decor Magazine", “What’s Hot!” 2010). “The decor is sleek and the ambiance is warm and candlelit. Hospitality is reflected throughout every staff encounter" ("Quintessentially Concierge").

After dinner you might like to stay on for the vibrant late-night atmosphere. Have Travertine’s award winning mixologists craft a bespoke cocktail to suit your individual tastes.

    This was my second time going to the restaurant (first was back in Oct/Nov). I remembered it being a bit of a scene with good food and good enough service, so I went there with a buddy of mine last week who was in from out of town. The food was mediocre, the service was pretty decent but we were one of only three tables in the entire place. The menu was limited and there were no specials. My beef carpaccio tasted cooked (kind of roast-beefy) and my paella was very average. All-in-all I thought it was utterly mediocre when I was hoping for a cool and fun place with good food. Very disappointing given my first experience there. I will say, it was the Wednesday before Easter so maybe some folks were out of town but I see no reason to go back.

    The ambiance at Travertine is top-notch and is an ideal spot for a romantic date or intimate get-together with a friend. Our server was excellent and eager to recommend items as everything on the menu sounded delicious. Their drinks were excellent and smooth. The only thing I would say negative was that the Cod was a bit flavorless. Though it was lite, it tasted solely of thyme and could have used a bit more flare- a detail you'd expect not go overseen with a restaurant of it's kind.

    The food simply wasn't good. Wasn't horrible, but you could probably cook the same dishes as well, if not better at home. Plus all of our courses were almost cold - luke warm at best. Aesthetically, its a cool place, but when they can't come through with quality food, you have to question why you're attending.

    The tables in the front of the restaurant are freezing. We asked to move to a warmer area that had just opened, and the manager would only offer us the table in front of the door, which is the coldest in the restaurant. We had ordered a bottle of wine, and asked them not to open it until we changed tables. They kept stalling, asking us if we wanted some wine while they looked into the table move, which took 15 mins. They were very manipulative and rude. We walked out. I expect much better service in a restaurant that has +$30 entrees that don't include +$10 sides. Don't waste your money.

    We enjoyed the food but I feel that it was over priced. The restaurant is nice inside, but the neighborhood is a bit questionable. The service was very good. The pasta dishes from the tasting menu were good- 2 of them were realy good. I simply think it is over priced.

    Went Jan. 20. Threw me off because they didn't have prices listed on their online menu but it's not too bad. Coatcheck girl was too cool for school and needs an attitude adjustment but the servers were great. The menus is not big which isn't a problem except that they were out of at least half the mains and half of the desserts. But, everything I ordered was absolutely delicious. It was a very hip little joint that borders pretentious but I loved it.

    I don’t write many reviews but felt like here I had to. The first time we came to this place was in the summer - loved it. Decided to go back with some friends. Despite having a reservation we waited 45 min. Menu selection is so slim we barely found things to eat. Come here if you want pasta, that’s basically all they have. Was way too noisy - badly mixed top 40's music. We asked the waitress to turn the music down a bit because it was late and the restaurant was getting empty ... they turned it up. Really not please. Def won’t ever be going back. Shame that another good restaurant bites the dust.

    I went for my birthday with a group of friends. We initially booked the table for 4 people but had 2 additional guests. They were very accommodating. The food was excellent. We sat down at 7.30pm and were served our main course around 9.00pm. It had a nice atmosphere with great music and a friendly service. I would definitely recommend it.

    Was a wonderful dinner at travertine. Would absolutely go again. Food was delicious. I felt the food was a little too quick to come out and you felt a bit rushed. We just ordered a couple of appetizers and then decided to order a pasta dish which gave us more time to sit and talk and enjoy what we had.

    I called beforehand to make sure that Travertine could accommodate a vegetarian diet for the pasta sampling and was told that they could. I reminded my waiter of this upon arriving. At this point, he said he thought that the chef could accommodate my request. The first course was vegetarian and our waiter explained the dishes to us. However, when the second course came out, our waiter didn't come over to explain the dishes, and both pastas were meat dishes. So he had a plate of food (which I paid for) that I can't eat brought out to me. He then didn't come to our table for 15 minutes, and when he did, I had to ask him whether it was vegetarian and he simply said 'no, sorry.' Completely unprofessional and rude. And the pasta was mediocre.

    We were very unhappy with the food. Ordered a pasta with brown butter sauce. Sauce was a thick cream. Very different from description on menu. Asked specifically for the dish to be described and never did anyone say thick cream sauce with butter in it. It did not help that my dinning partner cannot eat cream sauce.

    Great cocktails :) The service was excellent. The only detraction was the fact that my date and I were seated so that we were separated by the rather high arm of his chair. Makes for awkward hand holding. Otherwise, a great experience!

    The food was generally good with nice sized portions. Unfortunately I ordered the cod, but it was undercooked. My dining companion enjoyed the gnocchi. The calamari is excellent. The prosciutto wrapped figs should be warm. We didn't order desert so I can't comment on that.

    Travertine impressed from the moment we walked through the door. We received a red carpet welcome and then were promptly taken to our table. We were seated in a fantastic spot overlooking the entire restaurant and bar which is just spectacular! Our gorgeous waiter Ioah introduced himself and from that moment on treated us like royalty and made us feel very special. Dazzling cocktails, an extensive wine list and an exciting menu didn't dissapoint. A true highlight of our time in New York. Just Fabulous!!!!

    I know there has been much hype about the late night scene here. We didnt stay for that, but did have a terrific meal. The layout of the place leaves a lot to be desired. It's a suprisingly small place upstairs in the restaurant area. The bar is much too cramped. There were only about 8 people waiting on tables but they jammed up the whole bar and it took forever for us to get a drink while waiting for the rest of our party to arrive. The food though was very impressive. Overall we had a great meal, and good service. The hostess had a bit too much attitude for our taste, but maybe she was getting ready for the hipsters soon to descend.

    Our evening got off to a shaky start, since we had to wait over an hour for our table, despite having a reservation. This is a very small restaurant, and I really wouldn't recommend it for parties larger than 2 (we were 5 people). In any case, our waiter was very nice and once the food came, it was so delicious we almost forgot how long we'd waited!! We each had different appetizers, which we all shared, and pastas for the main course. Each dish was wonderful in its own way. The setting is beautiful, and very dark and romantic. So leave the groups for another place, take your date here and enjoy!!
