“A lovely restaurant, great service, unfortunately uninspiring main course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

This is a beautiful restauarnt with great service. We started out with some complimentary bread, hot and fresh straight from the oven. We ordered a small pizza for entree to share - fresh ingredients, perfect pizza dough.

Unfortunately our main course "Roasted Chicken with seasonal vegetables" for two was a let down. I have had some amazing, juicy, succulent chickens before but unfortunately this was average at best. The seasonal vegetables were also quite just OK. The waiter asked how everything was and I replied with "it's good thanks, not amazing to be honest, but still good" he left and returned later to apologize and say that the main course was going to be taken off the bill - wow what great service - all I said was that it was good but not amazing, so was quite impressed with this.

The mains coming out at other tables looked great so definitely recommend giving this place a try - just skip the chicken for two option.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

I was here with my son and a friend in 2012 after another friend recommended it. We ate family style in order to try a lot of dishes and desserts and nothing disappointed! The food was outstanding period.

“Great food, service and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

We went to Colicchio and Sons for our Anniversary dinner. We decided to sit in the Tap room for a more casual dinner but were please to have the same upscale service and amazing food that you would expect in the main dining room. My husband ordered the burger which he said was "the best he had ever had" and I had the the vegetarian dish. You usually don't expect much from roasted vegetable but they chef had prepared an amazing and creative assortment that was very yummy. Our waitress let us sample Rees before deciding on one and even took our picture and emailed it to us when our camera died. It was a wonderful meal and a great experience!

“Loved It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We booked a table for 4 people at Colicchio but only 3 of us made on time as the fourth was arriving by bus from another city and was late. When we informed our host that the fourth person will be around half an hour of more late she simply said "No problem, we'll just take him directly to your table when he arrives!". I love restaurants that are flexible enough to understand that things like this happen! We were taken to our table and given the menus without being rushed to order anything (like many other restaurants would do, even if your party is not all there yet).
The food we ended up ordering was awesome, the cocktails were amazing and service was out of this world. Highly highly recommended.

“Relaxing atmosphere. Good value on the Prixe Fixe Lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We went on a Friday at around 11am for lunch in the Taproom, and the restaurant wasn't very busy, but it sure filled up quickly once lunch time came. The service was very efficient, although quite impersonal. The taproom area is spacious and very modern, yet warm looking with plenty of wood accents. We found it a very relaxing place to leisurely enjoy our lunch.

We ordered from the Lunch Prixe Fixe menu which is a really good value as you get one appetizer and one entree for $25. The standouts for us were the Beef Tartare and the Duck Confit. My companion said that it was one of the best Beef Tartares that he's ever eaten. The portions were a bit on the smaller side, but hey, it's Tom Colichhio food! For an extra $7, we ordered a dessert to share between the two of us. I highly recommend the Zeppole-talk about the simple doughnut elevated to another level!

If you would rather not get dessert from here, you can always walk across the street after your meal to the Chelsea Market where you will find a plethora of bakeries with all kinds of delicious goodies.

Overall, we had a really good dining experience here and would come back again when we are in NYC.
