Same quality as Marea but without
We visit NYC two or three times a year and always look forward to a fine meal with excellent service. Lucky to have Xavier again as waiter, though all are terrific. Broiled fish was tempting based on past meals, but we were happy with orichette special with tuna and olives. Calm, quiet, friendly, professional and always delicious.
A very pleasant experience. Just one issue, a bit too noisy at the peak hour. I am a person of certain age so you must take my comment with a grain of salt. Next time I would ask for a more quiet table.
Staff knocked themselves out.
We enjoyed a most wonderful anniversary meal. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. Great job!!
Excellent food and very attentive service. It has now become my first choice restaurant when dinning in mid-town.
Just what an excellent restaurant should be. Great good. Spot on service. Quiet, talk level atmosphere. .
On the evening that we went, the service was very slow for some unknown reason, whether they were short-handed or there were a few large parties before us. The staff apologized profusely and they gave us complimentary desserts. The pastas has good taste but were all undercooked — we were expecting al dente but all 3 pastas were under. The bone-in ribeye and the Dover sole were both excellent. All in all a good experience and we will go back but I’m hoping the pasta and the timing will be better next time!
Branzino perfectly done. We had a table in the middle of the restaurant, I would opt for one around the back or on the side. The wait staff is professional, attentive, and the food is really great. A wonderful experience.
Food was very well prepared and service terrific!
Have dined here many times of the years, and it is always a fine experience. Service was a bit slow this time, but they seemed busy and perhaps they were short staffed. Always friendly and welcoming, food is great, and a nice wine list.
It was fabulous. The restaurant setting was great. The service was slick and friendly
The ambiance was fabulous with the live Jazz duo
We had the specials and the food was just out of this world.
Next time we come to New York we will be booking ahead
As you can tell we loved it
The food and service were good but the noise level was very high and iwe we’re almost shouting to hear each other.
Marvelous food and impeccable, low key service.
Fab - very Italian chic
We ordered all three of their specials for the evening: appetizer, pasta and main course. Every bite was fantastic. The waitstaff were extremely attentive. There wasn’t a minute that went by with my water low, wine glass under poured or a dirty plate uncleared. There’s a lot of Italian places to choose from in New York, but this one is worth returning (over and over again).
always a great experience- food is fabulous- had the branzino which was one of the best we have ever had, great wines by the glass if you do not want to order a bottle. Service is always warm and welcoming.
We haven’t been here for some time, for no particular reason. The food and service have maintained their quality and it remains a civilized dining experience.
The food is great and the service excellent. But it tool them almost 45 min' to bring our starters out and another 45 minutes to get the mains out (and we repeatedly asked them for both). What should have been a 75-90 minute dinner, turned to be way over 2 hours, of mostly waiting. everything was slow, even getting the check. At those prices, it is just not worth it. Not my first time there, not the first time i am disappointed for similar reasons, not going back again. Food is excellent though, albeit very expensive.
Has never been less than excellent in over a dozen years of regular attendance.
Outstanding food and service. I highly recommend this restaurant
Three of us for dinner, all was excellent. In addition the restaurant had read my special request made through the open table app and had thoughtfully accommodated us.
Most authentic Italian food, service.
Gracious welcome and attention to special requests.
Great place for a business or romantic dinner. Service, food and selections including vegan options are incredible.
The food is always good but the noise level was too high. My guest asked me to choose another restaurant next meal together
Nice staff! Wonderful food!
One of our all time favorite spots. Always have several dinners here when visiting from Seattle.
Always a enjoyable dining experience.
As always excellent curteous friendly service. Wonderful atmosphere. Food beutifully presented
Great location and very nice room. However we thought it was very costly for average food. 34 for ravioli that was just fair left us unhappy
Nice environment, great service and food, perfect!
It is our favorite Italian restaurant in New York.
Lais was amazing. She created wonderful cocktails and provided excellent menu recommendations. The entire staff took great care to make certain we had a wonderful evening
We've been to Il G many times and it is always wonderful: welcoming, fun, excellent food, terrific location. It may be the best place in NYC to have lunch if you're visiting MOMA.
Excellent Italian in a city with many choices. Great location near Central Park South.
It was great.
Amazing meal, like being in Italy. Wonderful service, attentive, great wine recommendations and helped us create a wonderful 3 course meal we could enjoy as we celebrated a friends birthday. We had the special salad (like a chicory) with the meatballs and a great special pasta. Fish is excellent as are all vegetable. The service is exquisite attentive and also provides space.
Amazing food. Best service I’ve experienced!
I love this restaurant every time I visit, delicious food, great wait staff/team and wonderful owner in Jean Franco. Can't wait to get back there soon.
Excellent service and food. We had the daily specials of turbot and filet of sole. They were prepared and served tableside perfectly.
Food has deteriorated from the last time we were there. Great Service but appetizers and main courses awful
