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

I went to Lavo to celebrate my daughter's Sweet 16 with 15 of her friends. The restaurant has a great vibe. The DJ plays music all night long. We picked out our menu ahead of time since we were a large group. All of the food was delicious. The meatballs and salmon oregonata were some of the favorites. Of course... More

Also they gave me a beautiful bag to take home along with actual silver knife for meat cutting with plastic fork. Very fancy, but they kind of loud edm music Inside the restaurant... More

I like the brunch on saturdays wich is packed with a much younger clubby kind of crowd…though music very commercial but is a great option for a party kind of place uptown. Food not the best but worth getting to know place.

Extremely expensive. Medium to low quality. Me and my wife went to this restaurant expecting something special due the comments at the Internet.... Nothing special.... 9 dollars for a common beer.... Don't lose your time....

The place is really nice and trendy! The decoration makes it even better! The bar in the middle looks nice. You should try the Maine Lobster, that's really really good! But the truffled fries where the best I've eaten in my life!!!!!

We liked the lively atmosphere in the evening. We enjoyed the good food and service. We did not have reservations and were able to get a table without significant wait. We will be going back when in NY.

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.
