Ok, we had 1 hour and 35 minutes to eat which seemed a shame for a restaurant with this reputation. 1 hour 25 mins later we left after 1 hour and 25 minutes of gastronomic ecstacy, not to mention 8 courses. Not sure this is fully fledged Indian food - truffles, caviar and langoustine are not common in India but .. who cares? Mind blowing food with an Indian Accent!

Exceptional dining experience that will open your eyes to the breadth and subtlety of Indian Cuisine. The wine pairing is well worth it, accentuating the versatility of the cuisine. Sommelier is a cool guy to boot. If having dessert, the Makhan Malai is an etherial, otherworldly pleasure that is lighter than a cloud...

Some of the best high end Indian food I have ever had at a restaurant. Delicate portions, exquisitely and innovatively presented with phenomenal taste! The complimentary blue cheese naan was particularly outstanding, as was the palak paneer stuffed kulcha. All presented like I've never seen before. Desserts- Old Monk (yay!) rum ball and the doda barfi tart were both mindblowing. An experience worth every penny!

We had such a lovely time at Indian Accent. We opted for the 3 course menu and wine pairing. Food, wine, and service were absolutely wonderful! The sommelier was entertaining and the wine pairings were perfect with our food. Everyone was delicious! I absolutely recommend this restaurant.

I commend Indian Accent for the quality of cuisine it consistently maintains. This trip, however, very disappointed that the Indian digestive petit fours were being ‘reviewed’ and no substitute offered. Disappointing. I hope chef will correct this.

The place was perfect! Perfect food and perfect service. I spent my birthday with my family there. Very nice experience. Only one pitfall to point out, they have nothing special for you except saying happy birthday. May not be a good place for special events. But a good restaurant overall.

The fundamentals are outstanding. This is real Indian food and presented in a lighter way. Food portions are exactly right. My wife and I went for lunch and were so impressed that we took our daughter for dinner the same day. Neither session disappointed. Will definitely go there again. The food is not cheap but is great value compared to other restaurants in the same area of NYC.

Great presentation of the food, Appetizers were amazing, but the main course taste was not as good-the gravy of both vegetable taste was the same. Chef's choice of one desert was amazing but the saffron Malai/mouse seems beat off in tasting.

Indian Accent hits the high notes again and again. This was an exceptional dining experience — each bite was absolute perfection. Expertly prepared, beautifully presented, and masterfully served. We are so happy to have chosen Indian Accent to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. The only downside was that we were too full from dinner to enjoy dessert. Next time for sure!

What a find! A refined, elegant, contemporary and welcoming environment, with a menu and service to match. Tables are nicely spaced apart. Despite enjoying dinner on a busy night, my guest and I could comfortably chat and hear one other speak, without being overheard, treated to our neighbors' conversation or distracted by loud music. The food, with its subtle, sophisticated and intelligent play with spices, is innovative, downright delicious, and exquisitely presented. Service is professional and friendly. The staff are clearly well-trained and there are plenty of staff, so while the timing is impeccable, it also appears effortless, creating a soothing environment in which to dine. Not least, the wine list is excellent, interesting, thoughtful and clearly well thought-out with regard to food-pairings. Anyone who doubts that wine is not an ideal match with Indian accented food -- think again! Kudos to the sommelier, who is also very friendly and approachable and ready with helpful suggestions. Not least the decor is streamlined, relaxing and unfussy, providing a setting in which to admire the beautiful presentation of the food.
