The instant you walk into Italianissimo Ristorante, you are overcome with a feeling of romance. When you arrive, your hosts for the evening sits you at a table adorned with gorgeous fresh flowers that evoke a certain elegance and charm. The maitre d' presents to you the nightly specials that Chef Luigi Campoverde (who is no stranger to the Upper East Side, with stints at Il Nido, Il Monello and Portofino Grill) is about to prepare in the kitchen. Diners who choose to pay with cash shall recieve a 20% discount on there entire check.

"This was our first time at this restaurant. When we walked in we got the feeling of a good neighborhood restaurant. It was beyond that. The service was great, the food was great. Our waiter was attentive and very helpful with our selections. They made us feel like regular patrons. We are looking forward to returning and becoming regulars."

Vivolo, the family name, long associated with fine dining and Italian cuisine, is located at 140 east 74th street, New York. Vivolo, established in 1977 by owner Angelo Vivolo, is nestled in a charming 1875 townhouse occupying two floors. <br><br>You enter into a rich English redwood paneled dining room and antique oak bar with a working fireplace. Ceilings beamed with dark wood create an overall intimate, friendly and romantic atmosphere. A "café" alcove offers several secluded tables or the perfect setting for dinners for 10. <br><br>The second floor of Vivolo has the look of a turn-of-the-century parlor with a gold leaf trimmed ceiling and working fireplace. The parlor floor is also a favorite for private parties.

"This restaurant has been in business for years with different owners. However, the quality hasn't changed. There is always attentive service and the food is delicious. They treat you as family when you dine. I would highly recommend this restaurant."

Morgans Fish House is a casually upscale restaurant in a contemporary space that is warm & sophisticated. The newly transformed bar is a great place to meet for a drink or have a bite to eat, & the spacious dining room is comfortable & inviting. Our Chef will be preparing the freshest seafood in a classic style as well as a style that is all his own. For those who are not seafood lovers don't worry, there’s more. How about a delicious Filet Mignon, expertly prepared by our chef or Herb Roasted Chicken with magnificent Rosemary Garlic Pan Sauce. If you are looking for a quick bite to eat during the week, or you are just in the mood for something lighter, the chef has prepared an entire section on the menu devoted to just that. Enjoy the chopped salad, Ahi Tuna Wrap or Maine lobster roll, just to name a few.

"We were looking for a casual brunch on a Monday. We liked the online menu at Eats so decided to try it. It was a little early for lunch for us and we were initially disappointed that their brunch menu is only available on weekends. There was an omelet on the menu which we both tried. It was delicious. We liked the menu selections for a later lunch and plan to return to this restaurant."

"After watching a segment on tv about barbecue, my husband and I had a craving for barbecue. We were planning on having a late lunch so we hopped on the bus to go to Neeley's. we have been to this restaurant numerous times, often with friends. We were pleasantly surprised to see a price-fixe lunch menu. Everything was delicious. We are looking forward to going back."

Husband-and-wife co-owners Michael Susy Glick welcome you to their contemporary steakhouse. Conveniently located only two blocks from the 92nd Street Y, Parlor Steakhouse features the type of elegant, stylish interior that Upper East Side residents have long desired in their neighborhood. Both the restaurant’s menu and its décor appeal to a broad range of diners: from young couples meeting for a drink and solo guests grabbing a casual dinner at the bar, to foursomes and business diners looking for a delicious meal in an attractive setting. Parlor Steakhouse’s menu offers items at many price points and encompasses both steakhouse classics and a wide range of creative preparations, particularly seafood dishes, courtesy of Executive Chef Lucas Billheimer, a veteran of Lure Fishbar (and Park Avenue Café). What’s more, Parlor Steakhouse features a 40-seat private event room downstairs that includes its own bar and a working fireplace. We look forward to seeing you soon.

"We are never disappointed at this restaurant. Since it was the end of restaurant week we invited friends to join us. They had not been to the Parlor before. While the restaurant week menu was attractive, three of us ended up ordering off the main menu. The food was delicious, as always. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. The food was delivered to our table without a long wait. We always have a good experience here."

Le Colonial is a truly delightful culinary experience. Like stepping into French Colonial Southeast Asia, this two-story restaurant, designed by Greg Jordan, consists of a main dining room with louvered wall panels, colorful tile floors, and vintage photos of Vietnam. Upstairs is an elegant, but lively, lounge serving a full dinner or just appetizers and cocktails. The lounge serves as an ideal setting for private parties and business dinners. Chef Ronald Wingwee Hsu serves an authentic Vietnamese menu with an emphasis on fresh seafood, meats, and vegetables.

"This was our fifth visit to this restaurant. We took friends with us. No one was disappointed. The restaurant week menu is varied. The portions are not skimpy. The specialty cocktails are always interesting-and delicious-like the food. We look forward to returning to this restaurant."

In addition to being the venue for countless Private Parties and Special Events, Hi-Life's award-winning 1930's decor, and casually elegant atmosphere has been the back-drop for numerous fashion shoots, movie scenes and television shows. (Including the 1998 film "Hi-Life" starring Eric Stolz and Darryl Hannah.) <br />Hi-Life's diverse menu and extensive booth and banquette seating make us a great choice for groups and parties of 10-200! Whether for a sit-down Dinner Party of 10, a Buffet Brunch, or Cocktail Party with passed hors d'oeuvres for 200, Hi-Life will customize a package that suits your needs and budget.<br />

"Hi-Life is a neighborhood place that is reliable. The menu variety is good. Going for appetizers and a drink in the summer is very relaxing-as long as the "entitled" people aren't there ignoring the other patrons and doing whatever they please."

An original pioneer of the casual upscale dining scene on the Upper West Side since 2003. Chef Craig Wallens’ contemporary farm-to-table Italian-American cuisine ‘explodes with flavor and freshness’. ‘Cesca features hand crafted pastas, wood-burning oven, artisanal cocktails and an Award Winning wine-list, all complementing this warm rustic environment<br />

"Cesca is one of those rare restaurants that makes you want to return again and again. The food is outstanding. The service is impeccable. The chef does some unusual things with common foods. The warm mozzarella with peppers and toast points was delicious. The carrot appetizer was outstanding. The fried cauliflower appetizer was like nothing we had ever eaten-so light and tasty. The entrées were also outstanding.They are sensitive to food allergies. I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation."
