The place is small and the tables are way too close to each other (even for Manhattan standards). The food is nothing special. I like the cheese and meat plate the most. Chocolate martinis are delicious!

I went here with about 7 of my friends as part of my birthday celebration. I would highly recommend making a reservation as the place is not too big, and does always be full. The food, drinks and desserts was really nice (few options but I think they need a bit more to cater to vegetarians (who also does not... More

My friend and I went for some dessert and ended up getting the truffle pizza and shrimp bruschetta!!! Amazing!!!! Loved it so much. The hot chocolate was delicious and their warm wine was so good. It's a perfect girls night or date spot. It's small but very intimate and cute! Can't wait to go back.

Liked the atmosphere a lot here. Have to zip up the plastic deck area to get in and it has a very cozy bar area with a nice ambiance. We enjoyed the chocolate selections and some of the cheese and charcuterie. Not a lot of options but that's not always a bad thing. I expected a larger wine list that... More

Great snacks however its strong point is its deserts! Small selection for a "dessert" restaurant however very good quality. Would recommend the cheese and deli selection for a light dinner...

We took our 16 year old for a private night on the town with just the four of us. We concluded the evenings festivities at AYZA. We arrived for our 9PM reservation around 8:30. The hostess was apologetic that they were not able to sit us early. The restaurant was extremely busy with a private party out on the outside... More

My wife and I went here for a quick dinner before seeing a show in NYC. We wanted to get away from Times Square a bit and this was a great choice. Overall we loved this place from the wine to the service and the food. I thought it was reasonably priced for NYC. This restaurant is a bit small... More

I'm defiantly a dessert person so I had lots of high hopes when I was recommended this place from concierge desk at the hotel I stayed at. I wouldn't say it was disappointed but I did have high expectations which weren't entirely met. * Ordered the Chocolate molten cake which was delicious about 3 spoons in, but became very rich....

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
