Intermezzo was recommended by one of the fine staff people at the Leo House as a solid, but somewhat low-keyed restaurants in the Chelsea area. There are no shortage of notable restaurants in the area, but as it was late evening, following a long day, everyone in my group was just looking for a nice, quiet dinner. Intermezzo seemed to...

I selected Intermezzo from the many restaurants on Restaurant.com, based on previous reviews and pictures only! WHAT a delightful surprise this quaint restaurant located in the heart of Chelsea is! The wait staff treated us like family, making suggestions and was extremely attentive. The food, made to order, was delicious! We tried the appetizer of the day, which was DELICIOUS!... More

Had a great Friday night meal here. Reservations at 7:45 and the place was not very full- by 9:00 it was packed and humming. Excellent warm bread and oil started our meal. Good pasta selection. All 4 of us enjoyed our entrees. Try the sangria- it was buy one get one free night. Very reasonably priced

Had a GREAT dinner at this quaint, yet lively Chelsea restaurant. With Marcelo Mostrianni and Gina Lola Brigida (sp?) holding court from on high, and amidst myriad noisy conversations our little birthday party of three was pleasantly surprised by the attentive waiter, delicious fare, and special tiramisu birthday cake. I had the skirt steak, another had the salmon, and REV... More

The food is amazing at this place and although I have been here several times, it was my first interaction with their nasty and blatantly rude bartender. My friend wanted to sample the three sangrias that they offered and he turned around and told him he was a pain in his a**. Then I overheard him say to someone, "I... More

Went there on a Groupon on Monday night...Labor Day night. Even without the Groupon, prices were VERY reasonable. Food was excellent!! I had lamb shank...was delicious. Also had a glass of red sangria which was also excellent. I highly recommend Intermezzo!!

Overall good experience. We appreciated that they honored our reservation on time since we were going to a concert at Madison Sq Garden. Service was good as was the food. We split a risotto and seafood entree as well as a Caesar salad and 2 appetizers. Calamari was light and delicious!

NYC has hundreds of Italian restaurants. We found Intermezzo to be a cut above the rest. We went with a restaurant.com coupon, and were happy we tried it. The place looks like it could be in Italy. The decor is pleasant and the chandelier in the middle of the place looked distinctly European. The bread was delicious, served with a... More

Intermezzo is a moderately priced Italian restaurant in Chelsea. its has both inside and outside tables (on the sidewalk). The atmosphere is pleasant and the service good. The food is what you would expect for the prices, not great, but adequate. The restaurant can be recommended to those who do not have a big budget but would like to eat... More

Went here whilst visiting NY on our honeymoon, we found a few restaurants along 8th ave and decided to dine at Intermezzo as it wasn't overly crowded.. The food tasted great and till this day I still remember how delicious my steak was along with the tasty pesto type sauce.
