The menu and ambiance looked promising, it was packed but thankfully we had reservations. The waitress was very "enthusiastic" to put our order in, we had hardly had any time to glance at the menu. Everything we ordered (calamari, steak and chicken) was extremely salty,...More

I really don't know where to begin with my review as I cannot decide what about Vinateria was the biggest miss of the dinner. Okay, so it is a restaurant so I will start with the food. Uninspired, not properly seasoned, and served luke-warm. My...More

Hanger steak was doable, veal meat balls very ordinary and the Italian wine too light and icy cold. Quick service, loud atmosphere...we decided to have an after dinner drink elsewhere.

My carnivore and pescetarian teenagers both enjoyed it. We were in a rush, and the kitchen obliged. Small plates made the sharing easy. The three of us had dinner (without alcohol) for about $100. Very enjoyable.

Wonderful place with great outdoor seating on a lively thoroughfare, just a couple of blocks north of the NW corner of Central Park. Food was all excellent: salads, pastas and fish. And a good range of wines by the glass with a very knowledgeable sommelier....More

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighborhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighborhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
