Pricey but delicious

Found it by accident since we were searching for late dinner near the Apple Store a block west.. We were a little underdressed for the restaurant. It is a dressy place. They also have a nightclub (did not realize it until we sat down to order). Would definitely want to go back with a proper... read more

Overall, I really liked this place. Good food, pretty good service and nice atmosphere. Great location right in Midtown. We did the price fixe menu during restaurant week and I was pleasantly surprised with the portion size and quality of the food. Can be a trnedy place and sometimes they are playing music which may turn some people off. Not... More

We went to a Sunday brunch at Lavo. I wanted to try everything on their brunch menu, as it all sounded extremely good, but I ended up getting the Lemon Ricotta waffles and a bowl of the lobster bisque soup. Although it is an "Italian" restaurant, nothing I tried was particularly "Italian". But that is not to say it was... More

Business dinner: The restaurant has a great "look" about it. My NY client described Lavo as a "scene". Our server, Mia, did a great job of keeping the meal moving along. I had the grilled octopus salad to start ($20): several tender pieces of octopus accompanied by a salad of greens dressed with red wine vinegar. As an entrée, I... More

This place has good food. It is loud but fun. The service was good, but we were there late and they wanted to open the club. We were eating outside and felt somewhat rushed when our dinners arrived. My dinner was salty, but the others at the table were acceptable. I would not rush back, as there are a great... More

What a fun place! We went to the Lavo Saturday brunch and this place is wild. The food menu is basic but great food and not that expensive. But you don't go here for the food...you go to drink and have a great time with the music and performances. The staff is friendly and service is prompt. The Lavo punch... More

We had rice balls there were delicious, a hint of spice with tender meat inside. My meal was pasta carbonara which is supposed to be creamy, it was anything but. It was more oily and not just because of the pancetta. Every appetizer that came out of the kitchen looked delicious and the ones on the next table smelled great.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
