Came here for a birthday dinner with a whole bunch of friends, and were seated at 930pm, didn't get our meals till after midnight, by which point everyone had lost their appetite. The staff were rude and the place was very pretentious. They took us down to the club after dinner which was also terrible! Would never go back!

Had lunch here sitting out on sidewalk - great atmosphere and went back next day. The 16oz kobe meatball "appetiser" is wonderful - rich ragu sauce and whipped ricotta with loads of basil. I had with side of lovely truffled fries both days - more than enough for main course. Service friendly but not attentive. Had live music on Sunday.

This is the second time I visited this restaurant, the food was very good, the atmosphere is very vibrant, and happening! The service was attentive and I would absolutely come again, and recommend to others. Mid town fun!

This is a busy district during lunch time, it is easier to find a table close to reception, the great room is usually crowded. Nice options for salad, pasta and from the grill. Some dishes are really huge for just one person (unless you are starving)

Lavo is amazing and I adore the Sunday night dinner party that continues all night with a theme. The servers and managers are always so pleasant.

Came here for a special occasion. We were two couples and all of us had a great time. You can dance in your seat while eating dinner while the DJ spins. Great for people watching. Food was surprisingly good for a restaurant with a club. We had oysters, fish, men had steak. Everything was delicious. Can't wait to come back!

We dropped in to meet a pal for a drink. Got a nice glass of wine and a yummy flatbread pizza. It was casual, not fussy but quality.

Fantastic food and great service. Probably the best pizza I ever had. Also tried the pasta with Kobe meatballs which was great. Will definately come back.

If you are older than 30 something and want to have a dinner with pleasant conversation in a quiet venue suggest you head elsewhere. However if you are looking for a cool vibe, excellent tunes, a menu with great dining options and first class (really excellent) service this is the place to dine.
