“Dinner with friends using Bloomspot Voucher”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Went to dinner there with friends this past Saturday night. We had a Bloomspot Voucher for dinner for four. We had to make our reservation before 6:60 or after 9:00 so we ate at 6:30. We had our choice of where to sit and we were very happy with that. Basically whereever you sat it was comfortable and very nice. We were given what I believe was the prix fixe menu. We each ordered an appetizer and main course. There weren't too many choices but I think whatever you chose you would be happy with as the food was excellent. We were also offered any type coffee and a dessert. The service was excellent as well. They charged us tax and tip on full value ($294) which I still can not figure out how they got to that amount as I think the prix fixe was only $39 p.p. In any case we enjoyed our evening and thought the price of the voucher $104 and the tip & taxes (approximately $80) was worth it.

“Best Steak and Great Shell Fish”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The service and food at Padre Figlio Italian Steakhouse is very good. The owner, Tony, recites the nights specials like a poet and makes you want to order one of everything! The best nights to go, however, are whatever nights Danny Nye, entertainer extraordinaire are there, so call to make sure he is before you go.

“Wonderful food...”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The food here was wonderful, as was the service and the decor. A companion and I had a prix fixe dinner for two, which included three courses: we chose delicious fried calamari and baked clams as appetizers, seafood fra diavolo and veal parmiagiana as entrees, and chocolate mousse cake and coconut gelato for dessert (and very good coffee). The baked clams and the gelato were the two standouts, in my opinion. Everything else was still very good, though.

The normal price for the fixed price dinner for two is $147 (before tax and tip). I purchased a Groupon that brought the price down to $59, although added to that was a 20% tip on the $147 (or about $30) as well as tax, and a beverage for my friend. So the total cost for a fixed-price dinner for two with the Groupon was about $106--still a little pricey, depending on your budget.

I liked that we weren't rushed (it was a Thursday night) and the service was attentive and friendly without being overly hovering. Although the restaurant is between 1st and 2nd Avenues, it's an easy walk from Grand Central Station.

My only complaint was the ladies' room. It was not as clean as it could have been, and inexplicably, there was dollar-store off-brand kitchen pump soap, in the store bottle. Very unappealing. If the rest room had been as meticulous as the service and food, this would be a five-star review.

“Excellent Italian experience”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

This was our best meal in New York! Our hotel had recommended this place, we are so happy to have chosen it! The service was always very attentive and professional. The whole staff really knew the menu perfectly. We had an appetizer of fried calamari which was gone in a second. I ordered the lobster ravioli which were to die for! Overall a very positive experience!
