First i would come back here for lunch or dinner in a heart beat. We met another couple here for a pre-broadway brunch. My husband and i had the pancakes and french toast. One friend had the pasta dish. His adventurous wife had poached eggs, which she deposited over polenta. The coffee was great. There were some private rooms off... More

Our hotel receptionist recommended A Voce to us and we tried it. It was an altogether pleasant experience. The decor is modern and clean looking. The restaurant was quiet enough for us to converse in a normal tone of voice, something we particularly value. The menu was large and very interesting with a variety of Italian specialties. Some of it... More

We just happened upon this restaurant when looking for a good place for lunch in the city. We were pleasantly surprised by the experience. The food was great, and the service couldn't have been better. We will go back when we are in town.

I had dinner at A Voce Columbus Circle and was a bit worried when I saw that we had to climb three stores to reach the restaurant. It is the kind of place that has as much soul as the mall where it is located. Clean, cold, efficient but you could be anywhere in the world. It has no New... More

But the food is really very very good. I found the waiters to be very pretentious. But the food was outstanding. Portion size was inconsistent. I had the squash tortellini, while others had meat dishes. Their portions were large, while mine was tiny. But it was about the best tortellini I have ever had.

We happened on this restaurant by accident. A very fortunate and happy accident. We ordered scallops with white truffles which was spectacular. The service was excellent and the ambience wonderful. My daughters' first taste of White truffles. A great success!

The food was fantastic, and the service was friendly and very quick. My only complaint would be that as a vegetarian, I wasn't given a lot of choice. Thankfully the dish I chose, agnolotti minus the shrimp was a taste sensation. My fiancé had the roast chicken and couldn't have been happier with his selection.

We ate at A Voce during a 5 day trip to NYC and I was surprised at how unimpressive the food was. We ordered two pasta dishes and they were flavourless. Overpriced and underwhelming. We would never return. There are SO many better restaurants. A pretentious restaurant does not guarantee good food.

I have nothing but high praise for A Voce-- but you also need a high dollar amount to go along with it (or at least a mid-range budget-- this is not a cheap eat, folks). For a lovely night out or for a special occasion, this place delivers. Everything from the elegant decor, the attentive service, and the plating was... More

There are not many "last second" meal decisions that turn out well on a Friday night. But dining at A Voce last night worked out great. There were understandably no tables available (a good sign) so we sat at the bar and enjoyed an excellent meal, adding truffles (and major expense) to a couple of courses along the way. The... More
