We had a very enjoyable experience. Our waiter was friendly and had a good sense of humor. We liked the range of meals on the menu but were sold on the salmon special by the waiter. It was superbly cooked as were the range of vegetables accompanying it. The lack of a carb was more than than made up by... More

Really liked the atmosphere - very lively on a Monday night, rustic bar with reasonable selection of CA micro-brews, herbs/garlic/ham decorations hanging from top of bar rails. In town for business and my sister & 1 year old niece came to meet me - wasn't sure if it would be child friendly but worked out great (and a few other... More

Enjoyed a fantastic lunch on a Wednesday afternoon with 3 colleagues. While the concierge at the nearby Hilton had made reservations for us, I don't think it was truly necessary as the restaurant wasn't crowded. Our meals were delicious. I had the risotto which was fantastic. Two of my colleagues had the fettucine and said it was fantastic, and another... More

My sister and I stumbled across Kuleto's after a hectic morning in a Macy's sale, and were looking for somewhere to warm up and refuel. We were really impressed - most local to Union Square restaurants seem to be occupied by chains, and this was good fresh Italian food, very obviously cooked to order. We took a seat by a... More

I've dined in kuletos many times. It's always good( not outstanding), good risotos and pasta. You should arrive early because it's always full. Simple but good restaurant if you stay near union square, not expensive

A colleague and I ate at the kitchen-front bar. We had great interaction with the cook, and he did a great job of highlighting some of his favorites. The food was rich and sumptuous... especially the "Duck Papardelle".

I read the reviews of this restaurant and it is located a couple of blocks from the Westin at Union Square so my colleague and I tried it. I tried the beef carpaccio and was a bit disappointed. It was rather thick and a bit hard to chew. The presentation was lovely. It was topped with arugula and a homemade... More

Came here with my family. We have enjoyed pappardelle with duck meat, my fettuccini were very good although we did not have reservations, we were seated quickly. Our waiter, Justin , was very friendly and attentive. Kids were hungry and the food arrived fast. My wife was not sure about her wine choice, she was offered to taste what she... More
