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.

The attention to detail and overall immersion in food, and sensory delights is truly immaculate and cheerfully dazzling. If you choose to go here, you can hand your evening over to the team at Atera and you’ll be sure to be taken care of. This is all without mention of the food but once the first plate hits the table, you’ll be in for an experience- inventive, precise, and playful. Every bite will have you grinning with joy. A true delight and pleasure.

Very special experience in a lovely and relaxing setting. The staff was attentive and knowledable, the food was inventive and exquisite without, somehow, being pretentious. There was a subtle playfulness to the meal, which I enjoyed. The meal is pricey, so only a rare treat for me, but worth it...

Service was exceptional as always, entire staff was so personable and provided such detailed service from the moment you walk in till you get you coat when you leave! Food was creative with many new dishes after dining often. Wine tasting was exciting with many new wines I’ve not tried previously. One of the best spots in New York.

One of the best restaurant of NYC ! We had an outstanding sensory and culinary experience! Each plate is a piece of art.
The wine paring was perfect as well. My daughter had a non-alcoholic pairing and each drink was a very original and creative mocktail playing with aroma and color.
The Chef and his team were very welcoming and accommodate to any allergy or intolerance. We loved the sitting around the kitchen that gives you a proximity with the Chef and a glance at the elaboration of each masterpiece dish.

I can honestly say that this was maybe the best dining experience I have ever had. Relaxed atmosphere combined with incredible and attentive (but not stuffy) service, fantastic wine and incredible food. Every course was better than the last. We chose to do wine pairings and every wine was perfectly paired, very cool and unique and absolutely delicious. We kicked off our honeymoon in NYC with dinner at Atera, and i am so glad we did. It is expensive, sure, but worth it. We will be back.

I don’t usually write reviews; but my experience here has compelled me to do so.

The food was mediocre for the price charged, though the wine selection was comprehensive.

However, whilst chatting to the lady seated next to me, who was equally enjoying the chat, a server walked up to me and said I was not allowed to talk to her. The cheek and gall of the server ruined what was an already mediocre experience. I can not recommend strongly enough to avoid this restaurant.

Unbelievable experience. The service was phenomenal. It was my husbands birthday and I put that in the notes of my reservation. Every single employee we came in contact with wished him a happy birthday. Every single one. And they printed special menus that said happy birthday as well. The wine pairing was amazing and they are very generous with their pours.

It was a great choice to celebrate my birthday with my husband at Atera. The food, drinks, and service really made it a special experience. Additionally, my husband was recovering from oral surgery and the chefs were able to accommodate the harder to chew dishes. I’ve never done a temperance pairing before and thought it made the meal even better!

Really stuffy. Why not serve in front of the customer instead of coming in from all directions? Seat at the door is awful. Some dishes work, others not so much. If I come on time, I expect to finish before the ppl that came late, I should not be penalized for punctuality.

This is by far THE best dining experience we've ever had. From the decor, the restaurant layout, the personalized service and an extraordinary tasting menu. During this trip to NYC, we dined at other fine restaurants (including 3 Michelin Stars), none came even close to the experience at Atera. Every single course was beautiful and memorable. The wine pairing was excellent, the sommelier was very knowledgeable and provided an outstanding service.
