“Went for lunch and the serrvice was appalling”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

My colleague and I were staying at the Hilton and went to Remi for lunch. The service was the worst I have experienced in New York. Nobody on reception, ages to place and order and a long wait for the food. For the price it should have been better than this. Wont be returning!

“Wonderful Italian”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

What a surprise, really nice Italian food in such a touristy area. As I walked over to Remi, I passed numerous hotels and started to worry that this was going to be just another tourist trap. I could not be more wrong. The atmosphere is classic and the food was wonderfully prepared.

To start they brought a bread basket and some delicious ricotta and tomato sauce dip to the table. It was a nice change from the regular butter or olive oil and vinegar that you usually have at Italian restaurants. It was warm and flavorful with some of the lightest and fluffiest ricotta I have had.

For entrees, we had the calf's liver with polenta, the garganelli with lamb ragout, and the endive salad with pear, walnuts and gorgonzola cheese. The calf's liver was a bit underseasoned and the polenta was a bit on the drier side. The salad was very nicely dressed and very refreshing. Definitely a fan of this dish and nice to start dinner with or enjoy as your entree if you have a lighter appetite. The star of the entrees was the garganelli. It had just the perfect bite to it and the sauce was so flavorful. I wish that it was a bit of a bigger portion since it was quite a small serving. It still was a great dish and I am definitely a fan.

For dessert we had coffee and the panna cotta. The panna cotta lacked the custardy creamy consistency that I look forward to, but it still had a nice flavor.

Service was a bit spotty, we were surprised to get our drinks with our entrees and not before them for us to enjoy as we waited for our dishes. Also the coffees came a bit after our dessert was brought to our table, not sure if the bar was backed up or something. Other than that it was still a wonderful meal and having 30% off from http://savored.com definitely made it worth it!

“Disappointed”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

We have told of the excellent food. I had the Ossobuco with risotto and was very good but my wife ordered the bransino that was in the day special and the waiter brings the Chilean SeaBass that was in the regular menu. When we claim that this wasn't the order the waiter argue with us. The waiter argued that the menu appointed for the bransino (Mediterranean SeaBass) but the only offer the Chilean SeaBass. We have to show him that the menu have written Mediterranean SeaBass. Once he go to change the dish the bransino was unavailable.

“Fine Italian Dining”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

We had the Crab Cakes as an appetizer and Spaghetti entres. We wanted to keep the Italian flavor rather than try the Filet Mignon. The food was very tasty and the service was excellent.
