We recently had dinner on A Voce. The view of Columbus Circle is lovely. The food was absolutely delicious. Our very knowledgeable and friendly waiter encouraged us to try a new wine, which we did hesitantly, but he was spot on. The wine was superb and no more expensive than our usual glasses. The only odd thing about this restaurant are the number of "managers" that constantly circulate through the restaurant interfering with the waitstaff and seeming to constantly admonish the supporting waitstaff. The expressions on their faces are miserable and it literally made me uncomfortable. At one point, our waiter was just chatting for a few minutes with us, not long at all, and I could see one of the "managers" approaching the table with an angry expression because the waiter had I supposed lingered too long. Next to the food, one of the most important aspects of dining is the ambiance. These constantly circulating guards need to chill; they are a real buzz kill in a nice restaurant. It is strange to feel you got your waiter in trouble just by talking to him.
