Last night was our 4th time at Aldea. Each visit better than the prior one. The food is an elegant and modern take on Spanish/Portuguese cuisine. There were no misses. Each course a surprise without being part uf the trend of Cuisine De Torture. The devoted staff brings the essence of the food and seem genuinely pleased when you are.... More

We had a dinner for10 in their private room and it was quite lovely. The room is very quiet and fully enclosed with glass wine racks along one wall. It is a great place for conversation and the service was very attentive. Our whole group was very happy with the meal- I had a green salad, the steak and the... More

Food is inventive and delightful, the open kitchen is a treat and the service is impeccable. A great and congenial place for a group of friends or an intimate dinner.

This place gets very little buzz, but it's a fantastic, chef-driven restaurant. It's one of my favorites in NY. Grab a seat at the back bar facing the kitchen...it's a great show!

We started with salad and croquettes, along with Serrano ham...for dinner I had the suckling pig and my boyfriend had the cod with roasted corn and cilantro...hard to decided what was better, both...

My husband and I had dinner at Aldea a week ago The restaurant is lovely and the service quite good. We were however somewhat taken aback by the wine service. Since my husband prefers white wine and I red, we often order glasses instead of a bottle with dinner. I ordered a glass of a cabernet, the server asked if... More

First the bad news: Middle aged couples (over 40) beware, you will be seated as far away from the main dining room as possible. Yet another restaurant that wishes it could seat its slightly older patrons in the restroom or near the wait station. More bad news: The desserts are mediocre at best. And one more bad news: The food... More

The atmosphere was very nice. We had a booth. The service was outstanding, and the food was wonderful. We especially enjoyed the octopus.
