Good Food, Great Scene

This place has a very happening scene, full of life. Food on the other hand is not as great. Compared to other Italian options in the city LAVO is not a match. When combined with its great atmosphere you can definitely find the experience satisfying.

Terrific food, friendly service, nice setting & cool non-touristy crowd. And Scarcely a Russian in sight! A nice surprise, a cool oasis amidst the hustle & bustle of midtown Manhattan.

I got invited to Lavo on my birthday and I really enjoyed my time! Good food, amazing atmosphere! Prices are a little high but worth it. I didn't experience the night club..maybe on my next visit!

What a great place for drinks - friendly bar service and lovely atmosphere - go to the bathrooms to wash your hands - the fixtures are unbelievable. a bit pricey but worth it.

The guests in my party of 4 all enjoyed their meal. Everyone's selection was prepared as ordered. The service was attentive, and the price paid in NYC was appropriate for the level of of service and food quality. We all really enjoyed the garlic bread and marinara sauce that was brought to our table with the drink order. I will... More

We had a wonderful experience. Our server was awesome and had great recommendations for dinner and wine which was mind blowing. The restaurant is right behind the bar which was hopping the night we were there but it didn't detract from our night. Others might not think so. They have a fabulous 20 layer Chocolate cake that is to die... More

Beautiful people and good quality music. Very loud for a restaurant although this is its purpose. At least in the evenings. Food is Ok and the atmosphere is cool.

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.
