The beautifully discreet and intimate dining room at Annisa is matched by the sophistication, finesse, and balance of the menu. The chef's tasting menu is as good as any we have tried in the U.S. We simply adore this very special place.

This is a jewel box of a restaurant in the ever so chic Village. If you did not know it was there you might walk by. The interior was soft, muted and elegant like the way restaurants used to be in the 60's. It is not large. There is a small bar area in the front. They offer tasting menus,... More

We loved our recent celebration dinner at Annisa, from the impeccable service to the delicious beet salad and the marvelous roasted duck breast and confit on a corn cake. Our friend had a birthday and the chocolate tasting was pure perfection. Also a fabulous feminist wine list that always delivers. Brava!

We picked this restaurant for our trip to NY and for our anniversary dinner and all we can say is that this place blew us away. The food was creative and deliciously made, in particular the signature foie gras dumpling and the bread and butter pudding. I still think about that pudding, months after I've had it. Simply incredible.

Set at the bar and had grilled octopus with some white wine. The hummus served with the bread was fantastic. Yum. Boisterous environment but cool for Sunday afternoon.

I chose Annisa for a special night out to celebrate a birthday because I remembered it as offering both great food and, unique in New York city, a relaxed and quiet dining room. We were not disappointed on any level. The food was stellar, from a wonderfully complex chicken liver mousse amuse bouche (Say that three times fast!), through appetizers... More

There was nothing wrong with Annisa, but there was nothing outstanding. The service was excellent but food was not what I expected. For a tasting menu, there are countless other places in the city that your $300 would be better spent. Dessert was the best thing we had (& I normally rather skip dessert for amazing food)

The menu here was first warning. Sparse and heartless. Food which came while well prepared and played lacked depth and flavor. Wine list was just plain bad. Pricey and poor selections. Staff professional but detached. No one cared to ask how everything was. Sterile. I'm also concerned that their B sanitation rating for nearly 2 months isn't been corrected. I... More

I must have gone to a different restaurant than the one that's received such glowing reviews. Ambience was great. Food (striped bass and chicken) was good but not exceptional. Desserts were the best part of the meal. Wines were simply disappointing. We asked sommelier for guidance but didn't get much insight from adjectives like "bright", "elegant" and "rustic" to describe... More

Best meal I have had in along time. We ate here for a birthday dinner, and it did not disappoint. Food was creative and fresh, the service was outstanding, and the sommelier knew exactly what to do with the special bottles of wine we had brought. The spin on the soup dumpling was the outstanding course of the meal for... More
