Great food, pricy booze

Its great to eat here i love sitting outdoors. The food is good and well priced. The drinks are a bit pricey all in all at the end your bill comes to an average dinner price, just wished they spruced up the place a bit. Super friendly service

My wife and I stopped in at the recommendation of a friend. The lunch portions on the Prix Fixe menu were more than substantial and the prices very good, especially for food of this quality. The service was attentive, the wine selection was very good, and the atmosphere was bright. Oh, the dessert was phenomenal also. We really enjoyed our... More

I can echo the experience of the Groupon users here. Once you say you have a Groupon, they know you're not a cash cow. That said, we had an okay experience. We were not told of any limitations to what could order, so we got two of the pricier entrees, the branzino and the lamb, both of which were pretty... More

One of our favorite places for brunch (Gay Brunch) 25$ for 90min bottomless mimosas/ bloody mary or sparkling wine, the food its italian with modern touches. The best part its the music (a little loud) and the shows with drag queens really funny

DO NOT come to this place if you are willing to enjoy any food. If you want a night club which happens to serve food then you are fine. Ridiculously loud music blasting through the speakers. REALLY REALLY LOUD! I suggest you close the restaurant and open it as a night club. You just want to eat ASAP and leave... More

I visit a lot of restaurants and it is very rare for me to rate something so poorly, but after my 'short' visit to Intermezzo they deserve nothing more. I will try to keep this short, but basically if you plan to use the most recent Groupon that has been advertised (beer/wine/cocktail, 1 appetiser 2 mains) then good luck because... More

We were staying in Chelsea and looking for a "boozy brunch" to enjoy on a weekend get away. Intermezzo was a fun experience, but definitely not what we were expecting. It's a good thing we called to make a reservation as the place was packed and our seating was delayed by 30 minutes. We'd passed this place several times during... More

We went on a living social deal on a Sunday. When we walked in the place was loud and crazy. The waiter came over and told us they were finishing up Sunday brunch if we wanted to wait until after five it would be quieter. We decided to sit any way. We started with delicious Sangria, I'm not really a... More

Great to sit on the street on 8ave. Their food prices are really reasonable, where you end up spending a lot of cash is on the booze. 1/3 food 2/3 booze. Still love to eat here lunch was always good i love early dinner there. Excellent and friendly service. It is clean and nice, a bit old looking and needs... More

We discovered Intermezzo simply by strolling down 8th Avenue whilst looking for a local restaurant. We managed to get seated by the sidewalk and were able to watch the world hurry by as we dined and drank well at reasonable prices - well by New York City standards anyway. The menu was decent and the service was delightful - the... More

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
