Great Neighbourhood Restaurant

We enjoyed our time at Lavo and would recommend it to anyone else. It was also close to our Hotel Elysee.

Dinner with friends, who enjoy new and trendy places. So on a Friday night, off to the restaurant and nightclub that shares the same name. My friend is Lebanese so I am used to later dinners - but as we left around 11, CROWDS of people were coming in. Beautiful young women in groups, having a bite before moving over... More

Dont miss this superb Italian try the meatballs they are delicious. Service is fantastic and it's always busy so you need to book. Perfect location too. Portions are big so you may want to share! Try the carbonara, bolognaise, and meatballs plus the lemon meringue was to die for! Forget the calories and exercise tomorrow...... My hubby had the 20... More

Luckily, our waiter shared that they do offer a "Prefix" dinner, and cost was only $38 which includes: --APPETIZER (choose 1) Tuna Tartare (portions on this one was huge. I highly recommend) Vegetable minestrone soup Classic caesar salad Roasted beet salad... More

I went to LAVO for dinner last night with a party of 4. We decided to give this place a try since they had a great 3 Course menu for NYC restaurant week that cost $38 per person. Normally the items on the menu for LAVO are overpriced for what you get, (so it wouldn't be my first choice as... More

That's the best sunday dinner you can have in NYC. LIVE PERFORMANCES! Belly dancing performance was my favorite. Food is good. Evening we ordered was delicious. Their customer service sucks big time when you call to make reservations. Every time we called we got different answers over the phone. It was such a hassle to get a table together for... More

I absolutely love this place, when I go back to New York I am going straight back to this place! The atmosphere was lively and the food was simply amazing. I had the steak and it was cooked to perfection. I was recommended this place by a friend so now I want to recommend it to everyone else!!

Staff was helpful. Waiter was knowledgeable. Food was first rate. Meatball appetizer is a must. Do not leave without having the fried oreo desert.

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.
