The food was outrageously good. Incredible. The noise level was very high. Also, the wait to park our car was really not acceptable. 18 minutes. And the place is beautifully decorated. All in all a wonderful experience.
We got there and within five minutes the waitress started pushing us to order. We sent her away and then she came back in another five minutes and we said that is enough we are not ready yet!! She got upset and she left then they sent back another waiter that was a Little calmer. The dinner went much better after that!!
Had a wonderful dinner at Maiella. Enjoyed the Maiella cocktail! We had the linguine all’ aragosta and the short ribs. Both very good meals. Finished with a soufflé which was delicious and our waiter accommodated us with ice cream on top and extra bread for our meals. Overall great night out and the holiday decorations are gorgeous!! I would come here for the decorations alone.
We come here often, and they are always courteous and accommodating. I changed my reservation last minute from 4 to 9 ppl and they were very understanding even tho it was a holiday weekend and they were busy. We had a great table, great service. The food was delicious and they’ve done a wonderful job with the festive decorations! We’ll be back soon!
Nothing remarkable about the food. $10 for valet parking, on top of inflated prices, is gilding the lily.
Excellent as always. Bar staff is great.
The Manager Vinnie is beyond 5 stars. Vinnie makes you feel special and is very caring regarding what you order, what he recommends. Bravo to Vinnie and staff.
Food is good . On my next visit i will try the pasta as the fresh pasta that i had was excellent.
Yes, i would recommend this restaurant.
Great service and great food !
Outstanding service and food.
We went here on Sunday for my sister's 60th Birthday celebration, our reservation was for 4:30pm we arrived a little early and had drinks at the bar. I had a Manhattan, my sister had one of the specialty cocktails, both were well executed and delicious. The manager was very attentive and offered our table early if we wanted it. For appetizers we shared a brick oven Margherita pizza, the Pulpo, and the lamb shank pappardelle pasta. All were very good. For the entrees, we ordered salmon, whole branzino, pork ossobuco and duck. All were enjoyed and paired well with their sides. We had a bottle of red wine, they were out of the one I chose but their recommendation was excellent. For dessert, we each had the dessert cocktail that was made with espresso, the name escapes me now. We shared 2 orders of the flourless chocolate cake. Since it was a birthday celebration, they gave us a slice of meringue cake that was to die for! The total bill for 5 people included tax and tip was slightly under $500. I should mention the service was superb and we never felt rushed. Afterwards you must take photos out back under the Pepsi sign and capture the NYC skyline at night.
Our server was amazing and the food never disappoints!!!
Great staff very helpful and polite.
The food needs significant improvement. I got the Risotto for $28. In the menu it said it has “truffles” but when I got the dish the waiter told me that it is “truffle oil”. It was misleading at best. Then when I tasted the food, I didn’t taste any truffle. It was truly disappointing. The sad thing is I live in the apartment right next to the restaurant and I know I won’t be going there anymore.
No Chivas regal at the bar. NO DUCK available which is on the menu , as a regular dish , not a special . ( 7:15 pm reservation). Stale bread , no oil or butter given. Barren table. ONE FULL HOUR between appetizers and main course!!
Food was outstanding! Service on point!
Horrible service! Waiter was incredibly rude and intrusive. Food was OK but overpriced. I will not be coming back here!
enjoyable evening - branzino was one of the best I ever ate
Food was great, reservation on time, service fantastic. I didn’t like that it was very loud, not so much of a romantic place, too loud, it’s a sophisticated place.
Great service and atmosphere. The food was also very good. Would definitely come back!
Great food, great cocktails, great service.
Took a client partner out. Noise level was energetic yet appropriate to hold a conversation.
Pasta sauce made at the table was an experience we can also talk about at our next business get together.
Food and service are A+ at this LIC waterfront joint, highlights were having pasta made fresh at the table and the meringue cake - if you go here and don't get the meringue cake, you will regret it forever.
Celebrating anniversary with family
we were a little late for our reservation but it wasn’t a big deal, the food was excellent everyone (5) of us loved what we ordered from the drinks, appetizer and main course, our dessert is just simple creme brûlée and they gave complimentary cake for my daughter’s birthday service is good, all in all it was a good experience except a little pricey but I think that’s the running price for that kind of place
Magical and delicious!
Small pours on alcoholic beverages
En el restaurante todo perfecto! Problemas al llegar por los valet quienes trabajan hasta las 2145, pero justo en la esquina hay parqueadero público
Bad service and terrible food
Highly recommend this restaurant to any food lovers, by far the most amazing meals i've ever had. The service is incredible as well, I will absolutely be returning for future events or dates.
Start at the bar with extraordinary signature cocktails...
Then your exceptional dinner follows !
The best restaurant in Long Island City, and top ten in NYC.
Must have Bucatini "Cacio e Pepe" con Bottarga - Tableside.
Ask for Karen to serve for amazing service.
Can't wait to go back.
Love Will & Phyl of Whitestone.
Waiter was fantastic !
I loved it, it was beautiful and I would love to go back
We had a lovely dinner eating outside. the noise level was much more amenable to quiet conversations there on a lovely fall evening. Inside definitely more energetic. Food excellent and having the wonderful valet service made it easy to get to. We will definitely return with plans to stroll along the river overlooking the restaurant.
Service was unreal from the second I walked in, to the service from the waitress. The best of everything. Never had an experience in any restaurant that came close to this. The Pizza was incredible. The steak was superbly prepared. Just a tremendously enjoyable evening. Would recommend this establishment to anyone.
One of best Italian restaurants we've been to outside of Italy. Beautiful view from the patio, excellent food, wait staff are very efficient. No complaints, it's a little pricey but you get what you pay for. Highly recommended, we will be back for sure.
Great food & service & View
The food was outstanding. We had the Sea Bass and the lamb dishes. Both were very flavorful and well-prepared.
Nice place food was okay service was okay
Had a great time with service, food, drinks and ambiance being top-notch. Loved!
