This was an excellent meal in a nice quiet environment which can be difficult to find these days. The pork loin was a wonderful char with a great sauce and was the lamb selections and fish. Most of the dishes have an Asian influence and some a bit of spice. The service was excellent. The beignet desserts were to die... More

Very intimate place (about 12-14 tables only) and not much of a waiting area but they make you feel special, don't rush you but are relatively quick and quite attentive. Food is inspired, with wonderful presence and combinations -- and while not huge portions you find yourself quite full and fulfilled. A couple of very nice touches are some extras... More

Dishes were interestingly prepared and served. Complex dishes probably required more explanantion on the menu, so be sure and ask your waitperson to describe your choice. The lamb dish was wonderful, although a bit chewy- a different cut might be better. On the other hand, the meal included sweet breads and a mini lamb casserole that were excellent. The atmosphere...

wasnt sure what to expect when reserving but based on solid great reviews visited with colleagues. fantastic service, lovely quiet ambience, not too fussy or prim. Was feeling unwell from earlier so chef was able to customize menu even more for me. Had amazing phenomenal desserts and portion sizes were normal (not typical supersized portions like in many restaurants) therefore... More

Great tasting menu. Good and inventive food. Combo's that I've never tried nor would I think of. Love that the entire place is not too big. Nice ambience, quiet and can hear your companion or group talk. Almost don't want to tell anyone but this is too good to keep to myself. Reservations recommended.

Having read the prior reviews we decided to head to Annisa this last weekend. It was everything we expected and more. We sat at the five-seat bar and had a wonderful cocktail because we arrived a little early. The bartender (laconic) sure knew what he was doing and suggested a fabulous drink for Wendy - The Neck. A riff on... More

Another stellar meal at Annisa. Completely crappy weather outside, warm welcome within. Started, as always, with the foie gras soup dumplings, and fish after. The decor and the service complement the food, as it should be.

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!
