Get the avocado toast - thickness of bread and consistency of avocado (as well as pepperoncini addition) make it memorable. So much better than the trend.

Went to Casa Lever with friends. Had a nice artichoke and rucola salad to start and the Orata special as a main course. The fish was cooked to perfection, deboned tableside and served with a buttery lemon, caper and shallot sauce that was divine. After the main course, instead of dessert we decided to have an after dinner drink. I asked for limoncello and was pleased to hear that even though it was not on the menu, they had it. We were served 4 limoncellos and while my husband and our friends’ limoncellos were a lovely slightly cloudy pale lemon yellow color, mine was a more egg yolk yellow with the look of syrup. I tasted mine and it was indeed too sweet and room temperature. I tasted my husband’s and it was chilled, tart, delicious and exactly what good limoncello should be. I immediately sent mine back and was given a new glass that was chilled and similar to theirs, but the waiter made no apology for the mistake and no adjustment was made to the bill. At a restaurant of this caliber one would expect superior quality from start to finish. And to try to sneak a substandard product to a customer is not just underhanded, but not smart given that it was so obvious as we all had the same thing. Left with literally a bad taste in my mouth.

This is the second year in a row we celebrate thanksgiving at casa lever. Amazing experience overall. Delicious food and great service. Jeovana was our server both times and made the experience more special. Thank you. We’ll be there again next year for sure and if we’re in NYC again in the future.

We had an excellent dinner. Drinks and wine selection is good. Osso buco is prepared in the traditional Milanese way, and it was delicious. We also had fish that was fresh and delicate. They are doing a very good job, will go back!

This was my second time eating here. The food quality is superlative, as was the service. My wife is gluten-free and the kitchen handled her food sensitivity without any problems at all - in fact, she was able to enjoy dishes she does not normally get to eat because they used rice-flour instead of a gluten-based flour. Very cool space - modern, to be sure, but not too much. Sound level was reasonable for Saturday night dinner. My sole "knock" on the restaurant is some of the pricing on its dishes. It was not crazy expensive by NYC standards, but I would be lying if I said the pricing was reasonable. That being said, the price should not dissuade you from eating here. The wine list is extensive if that's your thing. The bourbon selection is also very good (that's my thing). Cannot go wrong eating here. Mangia.

Sat at the bar, attentive service, friendly and knowledgable staff. A sample taste of a nice white was offered before selecting what to drink with the melanzane & parmigiano garnished w/basil. Nice. Next a Agnolotti del Plin made with veal, rabbit, boar and sage drunk with Sangiovese. Excellent. Pistachio gelato and mocha coffee. All good. I'd come back.

Food was great! Service was amazing! We drank water only (tap). I drink a lot of water. Not once did I have to ask for more water. The service was proactive and on top of everything. Plus they have great value menus, which keeps me coming back for more!

The world’s largest collection of Andy Warhol paintings is gone! Nowhere to be seen. Apparently it’s on an Asian tour. Thankfully it’s been replaced by a collection of Damian Hirst works. Not so good for the butterflies.

As always, the food and service was over the top.
