We loved the food. Service excellent. Definitely recommend Vitae
This restaurant was just simply amazing from the food all the way back to the service.
They went out of their way to make a friend’s birthday special!! Will go back for all birthdays!
the restaurant favorably located for us and is good . But advertised open table with only two $? The menu was very limited and wine and food over priced = change to $$ not two.
there are so many other better choices and would not return.
Food was good menu was over complicated in its wording for no reason. The food was great, good with food allergy’s
Fab-tastic company dinner. The personalized menus and cookies to go were a big hit. Lots of details covered. The food was beyond tasty!
Did the tasting menu. Good size portions and good variety
The service here was fine, but the food was mediocre. For all of the Italian restaurants in the city, I would not opt for this in the future, especially at this price point.
A bit overpriced and food somewhat under-seasoned.
Bottle of wine options not much under $90. I know it's NYC, but really?
Best Foie Gras I’ve had. Also had the grilled octopus which was also amazing. Service was a bit slow , .05 less star slow but overall I give this place a 5 star.
This was our third visit. It was recommended by my millennial daughter and I was very happy to introduce it to my contemporaries. We all loved it. Each appetizer and entrée was spectacular and, after not having ordered dessert, were happily sent off with a generous bag of cookies to enjoy later. The service was professional and generous as well.
Dinner was lovely. My son is away at college and came in to the city for dinner with me.
My childhood best friend and I celebrated both of our birthdays while visiting NYC and selected Vitae based on proximity to our hotel, menu and reviews. We chose to have a Chef Selection dinner w/wine pairings and all I could say is the chef did not disappoint! Not only were we warmly greeted by the staff, but they custom made the menu with a birthday celebration, card on the table and tissue paper confetti on the table - done tastefully. The food the chef prepared for both of us not only pleased our palates, but were beautifully presented: pasta, tuna tartare, fried oysters, seared sea scallops, roasted duck and a rich decadent chocolate torte. The wine pairings were also on point and plentiful. A wonderful experience!
A really a sensational experience. Coming from out of town, I had never heard of Vitae and found it via Google search for restaurants in the general proximity. Boy did I pick a winner!! Vitae is now on my go to list for restaurants in NYC! We were on a weekend get away for our birthdays and then headed to the theater. The restaurant was efficient in delivering service but we never felt rushed. My wife had butternut squash risotto and I had a wonderful duck breast entrée. Both were excellent.
Vitae gets an A+
I came to Vitae not quite knowing what to expect. Since it's in a neighborhood that mainly pulls tourists and business lunches, the bar could've been low and the prices high. While the prices were higher, the quality of the food and service was as well. It felt upscale without feeling stuffy. The staff was friendly and helpful, but not too formal. Food was great across the board. Really a pleasant surprise.
We went at 5pm so restaurant was mostly empty at that time as you might expect. Took a while to submit our order, but then food came very fast. No issue getting out on time for flight. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was excellent. My sister had chestnut agnlonotti and I had the lamb. I thought the lamb was especially good. My main disappointment was the prices on the wines by the glass seemed outrageous. I don't go out that often so maybe I'm just out of date on NY prices, but only one offering below $20. Thankfully they let my sister try it and when she did she rejected it. Other than that a nice experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. We tried the 4-course and paired with wine for each course. The wait captain was stellar, as were all the staff. We remarked that this was one of the first fine dining establishments where ALL the staff worked as a team. It was exceptional. We will return.
Wonderful restaurant! One of my favorites that I always go to when in town.
Lots of great choice on the menu and excellent service
Just visited Vitae for a business lunch. After initial concern with being one of the first diners in the restaurant for lunch on a Wednesday, the place filled up quickly. I enjoyed a beautiful and tasty roasted beet salad accompanied with a New England clam chowder while my business associate enjoyed the butternut squash risotto. The reservation was quick and easy on OpenTable.
