Post Covid: I went here for lunch on Thursday, August 13 at around 2 PM. I have been coming to Utsav for years and absolutely love the food. I had a wonderful lunch, outdoors of course. I started with a glass of Prosecco. And then...I ordered tandoori Cornish hen. Along with that, for a vegetable, I ordered tandoori broccoli from the list of appetizers. And to accompany all of this wonderful food I ordered garlic Nan. Everything was absolutely spectacular. The service was so accommodating and pleasant. The seating is wonderful because it is in the Plaza area so that there is an overhead. Therefore, it’s always cooler here than it would be out on the street plus you are totally protected if it rains. I plan to come back many more times and highly recommend this restaurant.More

Having enjoyed Utsav before the COVID closure in NYC, our group of 5 friends were there when Utsav opened its outdoor dining on July 6,’20. The covered patio space felt quite roomy to accommodate tables with safe distancing. Starting cocktails with crisp broccoli & spicy...chicken appetizers, our main courses included fish tikka, Chilean sea bass grilled to perfection, marinated lamb chops that melted in the mouth, chicken, dals, raita, assortment of naans & paratha . Each one of these was flawlessly done to perfection. Service was courteous attentive as always - under the watchful eyes of owner Nandita... It all meant for a memorable get together after months of covid isolation ....More

Not only Convenient but welcoming with great service and a delightful menu if you enjoy authentic Indian food located next door to the theater. They never disappoint. The only criticism - it is very popular with Indian families so large parties may be noisy. But...- Good food, service and value.More

Went for pre-theatre dinner. Told server at 6:00 we had to be at a show by 7:00. Even without dessert, we did not get our food in time to leave. One of the orders was wrong, but we did not have time to get it...replaced. That said, the food itself was very good.More

Party of three on December 23rd for dinner. Three courses were ordered but the third never was delivered. Tried to get the attention of any staff members unsuccessfully. Dishes remained on the table for very long time after we had finished the second course. Then...the bill was presented before the third course. We gave up.More
