Bachelorette dinner

Went here for dinner on a Saturday night. Waiter was great, attentive and made good recommendations. The price was very reasonable too, less than $250 for 7 entrees and 5 glasses of wine. Would definitely return.

We enjoyed a dinner at a table just outside of the restaurant's opened front windows, at one of 5 sidewalk tables. Wonderful service, delicious fare, inexpensive food and wine and a lemon cello on the house to wind up the meal. Wonderful! this little gem is a bit noisy inside, but our half-in-half-out spot was quiet (as quiet as any... More

Just went there last night. Appetizer and sangria were quite good. Food? My g/f asked that her salad have dressing on the side. They still put the dressing on the salad. I ordered pasta with a lamb ragout. The taste was dull...had very little flavor...AND, there were bones in the sauce. 4 of them!! I had gone to Intermezzo before... More

The food and menu here are simply not worth the price. For brunch, you're paying for the show, and not the food. Eat before and just get the $25 unlimited drink deal. Reservations HIGHLY recommended/required for a good spot.

I wanted to really like Intermezzo, as it's in my neighborhood, but I found the food to be mediocre. It actually made my guest a little sick. It's doubtful I'll return.

I have dined at Intermezzo several times over the past year and this last visit was the most disappointing; dning on New Years Eve. First of all the atmosphere is tastefully done, re splendid in color and crystal and with a gorgeous wood bar. Second the service is impeccable and attentive- the Maitre De, Jonathan knows how to treat clientele... More

I came across this place through Groupon, read several good reviews and invited friends to join. What could go wrong right? Well the level of rudeness was apparent from the moment we walked through the door. They squeezed our reserved party into a corner that could barely fit 2 people and then didnt even give everyone a chance to sit... More

I've been here many times and never had a bad meal. The food and the service are both consistently good. On the rare occasion that we have asked, they have dealt with special off-menu requests with grace. I think the prices are reasonable for what you get, and the wine selection is very nice too.

Came here for a family visit on theater night and it was an ideal atmosphere - quiet enough to talk at 5:30-7:00 when the crowd started becoming more lively. Staff was friendly. Nice atmosphere, without being haughty. Saw some fixed price specials posted (was not reminded about them when menus were passed around so did have to ask), each of... More

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...

Staying in Chelsea

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.
