Been to all the top michelin star reataurants in Manhattan on more than one occasion (Eleven Madison Park, Le Bernardin, Masa, Per Se and many others) and Atera blew them all away from the service, food, drinks and everything inbetween. This place is UNBELIEVABLE!

Wonderfully inventive tasting menu in an intimate, comfortable setting. Relative to other expensive high end restaurants, Atera isn't stuffy and has a great vibe, good music and an interactive, welcoming staff. Amazing to watch the kitchen in action and the dishes they come up with are both fantastic and memorable.

I went to Atera with my husband for his birthday. Dinner was excellent with creative, jewerl-like dishes and top notch service. They served more seafood than expected, which was pleasent surprise. Most memorable dishes: Sea urchin with egg, truffles on ricotta and bread, scallop with caviar (my husband’s favorite). The most pleasing dish to my eyes was the one with potato, cucumber and snap peas. The grand finale was ice cream wrapped in a crepe (before our eyes). Restaurant staff was ready to answer all of our questions. Very professional and friendly at the same time. Overall, one of our best dinner nights.

Amazing place. Amazing food. 2-year wedding anniversary and everyone was on top of everything to the last detail. Food-wise, it was a great experience, with subtle and bold flavors. 18 courses that wowed my wife and I, one after the other.

Food and service were outstanding but the seating was uncomfortable. The stools are okay at first but not great for a 2.5 hour tasting menu. A foot rail would help immensely also.

Had one of the most amazing experience here. Service was exceptional and so enjoyable, food and wine stimulated me from every senses, feeling of nature but with such sophistication. Made me feel alive and so glad to be a human, to enjoy such time on our planet. I would recommend to bring anyone special; as this place will make you feel very special.

The service and food were absolutely amazing! We did the wine pairing and it was outstanding. Chef Ronny was personally overseeing the kitchen and it was a great experience to be able to see the rest of the team working, just wish he would’ve been more interactive with the guests. Will definitely come back!

I can't say enough good things about my experience at Atera. The waitstaff was so attentive and genuinely kind. The fifteen course meal was delectable and the atmosphere so intimate. I especially loved the caviar, IPA cream and pistachio gelato dish. I would never think to combine those ingredients, but it was absolutely delicious. The lime juniper starter drink and the mandarin dessert were also awesome. To have food and service like this, the $285 is really a bargain. I would go again in a minute.

Wow!!!!! I honestly never take the time
to write reviews. We’ve been to many Michelin starred restaurants around the world and honestly Atera blew our minds. We did not have one bad thing to say about the experience. Everything was perfection from beginning to end. From the food to the service to the wine pairings. The bar has now been set from herein out.

Atera made my birthday evening truly unforgettable. The food was stunning, but the experience stretched beyond culinary excellence. The ambiance and intimacy of the restaurant along with impeccable service made for an evening that seemed impossible to replicate. The dinner in many ways seemed meditative. Watching the chefs work deftly behind the counter, the team was in a dance between preparing and serving bites of heaven. The wine glasses filled, the courses swapped, the senses perked. We were thrilled and delighted.

I’m a New Yorker living in Memphis but manage to fly in frequently to enjoy things you can only find in NY. All I can say is that I ate at Eleven Madison Park earlier in the week, had an excellent meal, even toured the kitchen.
But Atera blew me away. So much so that I ate there again 2 days later. Every dish is an explosion of flavors in your mouth. In fact they had just made changes to their menu; the previous one was outstanding as well. The Reserve wine pairing is expertly arranged and hits with every dish.
The staff is perfection and they make you feel like your home. The rock and roll music playing in the background is a special added touch. Every detail with a purpose, created to give us the most exceptional dining experience. I walked away both times very content and happy; reminiscing about each dish and the great people who work at Atera. I am looking forward to the next time. Since the advent of virtual reviews, this is my first. Enjoy.
