We were at the table for at least 40 mins before anyone took our food order. In fact we had ordered and drank nearly a full bottle of white before the waitress took our order. I asked for some bread and was told the bread would arrive once the menus were removed...... I shared salmon carpaccio and squid with my... More

If you like Italian food, you must go while in NYC. Antonio, the GM is a total pro. His gracious manner and service was outstanding. The risotto was executed perfectly. It was so good that I went back for lunch the next day and ate it again. The wine program is also fantastic. They know how to pour a great... More

The weekend price fixed dinner is s great deal. Otherwise it is ridiculously expensive for what it is. Charging sky high prices doesn't make a restaurant an in place. The food is good and nicely presented, but not great. An eggplant app was cold. Entrees were over "sauced." Had the steak and chicken. Both good but nothing to write home... More

My wife and I had dinner at CL on a Thursday evening for a special occasion. We picked it because it is reputed to be among the city's top-tier restaurants. It did not meet our expectations. The space is classy and beautiful. Our waiter was a real professional. The food was great. So, why won't we return? The prices are... More

Very chic space (used to be called "Lever House" restaurant since it is in the famous Lever House architectural landmark). Took a friend from out of town who has basically unlimited funds . . . and even she was shocked at the prices. Food was fine, service was fine, the Warhol prints on the walls are cool -- but, honestly,... More

We were here yesterday for Valentines Day and we had a great experience. Service was excellent, very professional. Our dinner was late so they let us choose our own table and that's exactly what I like. Food was amazing and their recommendation on wine and drinks was very well worth. Elegant design, great restaurant, we will come back here!

I decided on Casa Lever as it seemed a great place to try for Restaurant Week. Extremely high prices,scaled down to a reasonable $42 for a 3 course meal. This place is a WOW. Loved the vibe as soon as we walked in - a happy place. Amazing art that will keep you guessing. The service was impeccable and charming.... More

The food is delicious although very rich. The walls are lined with Andy Warhol paintings, which alone is worth the trip. The house made chocolate at the end of the meal was a nice touch. Save yourself for the desserts...

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.
