Anita Lo, the founder and owner of Annisa, is a culinary genius. This is our favorite fine dining spot in NYC. The cod is delicious prepared in a very special broth. The service excellent. And the highlight of the meal is the bread and butter pudding for dessert. The restaurant also has a very knowledgable sommelier. The decor is very... More

We enjoyed ourselves. The room is pleasant and not overly noisy, and the staff are quite attentive, pleasant, and helpful. The cost is typical of an upper-end New York restaurant. I personally did not judge my food to be as excellent as it had been in this restaurant several years ago, but my friends liked their meals better than I... More

We enjoyed our evening in Annisa very much. The design is simple, yet warm, modern but not minimalist, the tables are not far apart but still offer some privacy. The food was absolutely delicious, we loved our starters and main courses ( black cod and striped bass) but unfortunately did not try the desserts! Service was very good and attentive,... More

We were surprised when we arrived at the restaurant to see that the city has awarded it a B rating for its cleanliness and other health practices by the city of New York. We hesitated at the door Should we go in and honor our reservation made on Open table or to just cancel it. It was late so we... More

Brilliant, Brilliant food. My better half and I kept trying to get in here on our trips to NYC and we finally made it in March. The food was quite stunning--if you don't have the foie gras soup dumpling, you might as well just turn around and walk back out the door. This is truly a hidden gem in the... More

Annisa is a very small difficult to find interesting fusion restaurant in west Greenwich Village. The service was perfect and the main courses not exactly generous, only slightly larger than the tasting menu. My wife and I did not have the tasting menu as we have different food allergies and can almost never have tasting menus if they are for... More

We had another amazing meal at Annisa. The restaurant has a calm warm interior with only a few tables. Must make reservations. The service is professional, friendly and not rushed. We did the 5 course tasting menu. The portions were not so large to leave you too full. All plates were well presented and delicious. I loved the soup dumpling... More

My wife and I had the Five Course Chef's Tasting Menu. We really appreciated the delicacy and harmony of tastes and textures of each of the courses. In the delicious Black Sea Bass Sashimi, the trout roe and yuzu pearls burst like tiny fireworks of flavors, perfectly complimented by the shiso. All the dishes were superb, the staff were very...
