    It was a quick lunch with a business associate. I reserved for 12 noon, was seated within 10 minutes of my (timely) arrival, after a party of 8 (or larger) which came before me. We promptly received the menu, were offered beverages. The orders were taken right away. Food arrived soon. The bill took some time, the server was very busy hopping from one table to another. You can sense they were short-staffed. We were out of there within an hour.

    in the middle of a bustling and busy store is a charming restaurant with views of the beautiful architecture surrounding the building. Our server Jordan could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. My friends and I enjoyed negroni’s, wine, grilled octopus, an array of cheeses and cured meats to start. A funghi pizza, eggplant parmigiana and fresh pasta with roasted tomatoes and ricotta for dinner. We ended with a delicious chocolate dessert. We asked Jordan to introduce us to his manager Krystal Perez so we could tell her how much we appreciated his attentiveness and warm personality. Krystal gave us her contact information for any future reservations. We will absolutely be back and recommend others to visit.

    Food delicious. Not enough servers caused a wait to order, but servers were nice. A bit expensive because there is no bread or pasta with the eggplant dish. Good selection of cocktails.

    service was awful server was so rude and the manager was even ruder. when the customer returns a dish, you don’t proceed to take the dish back to her, get in her face and ask her if the dish was okay. obviously it isn’t since she just sent it back. everyone was served before us who arrived after we did. do not go here it’s so overpriced it’s actually disgusting.

    Delicious food with amazing views. The eggplant parm and Pasta Paccheri we’re excellent. We had the fruit lemonades to start and they are creative and refreshing. The Cesar salad was a well made with anchovies. We made a reservation with open table and I believe that’s why we got a nice window table. You can see the Empire State and other cool midtown structures. Def a good lunch spot or for families.

    Beautiful views! Nice service. Thought my eggplant parmesan dish would come with pasta but it didn’t, and yet was still delicious. We did feel a little rushed since we came close to closing time but that was our fault.

    Disappointing. I took a team of work colleagues for a team celebration based on an excellent review from someone in the group who had eaten there a few times. Several items on the menu were unavailable, and there was a section that appeared on the dinner menu with items -- none of which were available after 5 p.m.! Frustrating, because they were on the menu, but it didn't make clear they were only lunch options. Several of us had planned to order those items, including myself. My next selection wasn't available either. The whole ambience was generally tired, and while we were there at 6 p.m. on a Saturday, leaving before 8 p.m., they already had a sign up saying the restaurant was closed (perhaps because Macy's was closed?). For the prices, did not live up to the recommendation, unfortunately. I won't return.

    Lasagna Bolognese was good, Lemon Rigatoni was great! Nice selection of Italian wines by the glass. Attentive service from everyone, not just our server. Wish we'd left room for dessert, just to stay longer with a kind and friendly group of young people.

    This was a good location in Macy's and looking out at the Empire State Building , but the food and service was just "meh". I had an otherwise very tasty pasta, with a lemon sauce, except ALL the pea pods were stringy and undercooked. And the decorative raw pea shoots sprinkled too heavily on top, were just messy to eat. Our "Fancy" Kale Salad had a tasty dressing, but inappropriately large leaves that were difficult to eat, and for $19... the large one, was WAY out of line. Disguised as fine cuisine, this missed the mark, seemingly prepared, not by professionals. Our waitress, was quick to remove our napkins and $19 salad that we were still eating , wiped the table crumbs onto the floor, between myself and my client/ guest. This place fell short

    Service was horrible. Staff was rude. They close early (8pm) so keep that in mind because they will let you schedule a reservation for 7:15 and then rush you to order and eat. Staff sneezed in hands and contined to serve food.
