Came here with a few friends at night for drinks and dessert. We shared the twenty layer crepe cake brûlée! It was melt in your mouth delicious! Place is a bit small but definitely has a great vibe and a nice way to start or end your night out in the city.

Needed to find a quick bite before catching train. Ayza was perfect. Food and drinks were well prepared and staff were very friendly. The only complaint was how close the tables were.

Everything was pristine from the food to the service to the location. Couldn't have asked for a better dessert location

White truffle pizza, Asian chicken lollipops, chocolate martinis, chocolate truffles. I had to visit twice during my short stay in the city. The chocolate martinis with shaved chocolate and a truffle on the side was heaven. The white truffle personal pizza was very yummy. I definitely recommend this place for a date or get together with friends. Very intimate space.

My husband and I have been in New York a few times; always looking for somewhere nice yet affordable. Ayza was it. The location was great, close to hotel. The service was fantastic; especially comparing it to other restaurants that have very indifferent service. The happy hour wine was nice, even suggesting that if we wanted another for the Happy...

Close to Penn Station, very good food. Very good wine list including an extensive list of wines by the glass. The chocolate was interesting, but I'd suggest a tapas style dinner and peruse the various very tasty menu items - including sharing some of the "main courses."

My husband & I stopped in here on a Sat night in early Dec. We did not have reservations and the place was busy but the hostess seated us after about a 20 min wait. This place is very small and dark. High top tables & stools inside. It also has outdoor covered seating with heaters. You are practically sitting... More

We found this place by accident across from our hotel and went two nights in a row. They have outdoor seating with heaters so it's quite comfortable regardless of the weather. The desserts were great and the signature chocolate martinis worth the cost. We were advised to get the truffle pizza which was very average at best so I'd say... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
