3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 NEW

The place was very dark. I can barely see my food. The music was very loud, it's impossible to speak. The food was very expensive but average.I was expecting much better. I don't understand why it's so popular.

an eclectic high energy restaurant and bar, loud but with good food,interesting cocktails, lots of chinese kamasutra type images on the walls(especially as you go into the private party space downstairs). appetizers are great, the music is good and the bartenders quite friendly.

Good food and atmosphere is pretty cool. The music was good on Friday night and the drinks were really good. Usually drinks are sweet at most places but these were strong and delicious

we went to this restaurant on a Friday evening. It was buzzing. It would be a great place to go for a cocktail but equally the food was delicious too. The age range was probably 25 upwards so being 40ish we didn't feel out of place. The food is a fusion of Portuguese and north African and was wonderful. I... More

Went there for St Patricks day. Great food, good drinks, and a "calm" and classy way to spend st pattys. They had a jazz band and a few burlesque dancers.

MACAO such a great atmosphere such a great atmosphere in this "fusion" restaurant, the noodles are terrific as well as the extensive cocktail list! The room is spacious but don't know how you are not frustrated by the people noise and this is something so unique in New York. Staff is very professional and their suggestions can make your life...

My wife and I ate here on our first night in New York and loved the place. It was bit hard to find and we would not have located it if we hadn't been looking for it, but we were glad we did. The wine was great, the bartenders friendly (and generous with the wine), the food was delicious and... More

Headed over to Manhattan for the evening on a whim to meet a couple friends while i was working in Pennsylvania. Stopped in to have a few drinks at Macao. The drinks were pricey but great. My favorite was the Ciao Rizo. The bartenders were friendly and were giving us recommendations on where else to go that night.
