“The setting is cool but very romantic too (it's a great date spot).”
“Ayza is a nice place to come with a date to have a glass of wine or to sample chocolate.”
“Still the food's pretty good and that have a nice wine list.”
“the food is some of the best food I know.”
“The design is awesome - sleek and modern and though they leave the lights dimmed, there is lots of soft, flattering lighting as well. I'm a real foodie and I can't stop going back to Ayza. I love that they have a menu of staples, but change out key items ”
“Plus, it's really romantic so it's a great place to take a date - you can share some small plates and then do the whole chocolate thing.”
“No matter, though - we both really enjoyed our dinners and I'd certainly go back there.”
“The staff are very friendly, though our waitress was a little slow.”
“It may seem like a nice place, but for the prices people are paying to eat out, they could use a lesson or two on customer service.”
“The staff was super nice about how long we stayed, even joking with us by the end.”
Wine & Chocolate Never Tasted So Good. What’s better than wine and chocolate? If you go here, nothing at all. This place has a great variety of both. I was turned onto this place by a friend and the way they went on about the place, I figured they were exaggerating. Turns out, they were spot on – in fact I think he left out a few things – such as how this place has an extremely friendly wait staff, the décor is inviting and the place never gets so loud that you can’t carry on a normal conversation. I could order a different combination every time I’m in here and never tire of it. Now I just want to bring all my other friends here.
No better wine bar in NYC. No better wine bar in NYC, and I have tried many. This place knows their stuff and doesn't have the pretentious feel you would expect from guys that know this much about wine. The setting is great, they offer a small menu of tasty food. If you go in and have no clue what you like or know exactly what you are looking for, this is the place to go. ?If you have room for dessert, try the twenty layer crepe cake--amazing! Wines seem to range on average from $9-$18.
- Good food
- Good waitstaff
- Only one bathroom for the entire restaurant. Seriously?
- Terrible manager named Lea. Treated our party of 13 as if we were unimportant, especially after a worker removed a weight that was on the base of one of the 6ft tall heat lamps. Within a couple of minutes, the lamp fell forward onto our table. The lamp cover & heating tubes shattered, as well as the glassware/plates that were on the table. Pieces of glass flew everywhere and sparks shot from the lamp, burning a member of our party on her face, neck, hand and back. I picked a piece of glass out of the back of her shirt where she had been burned by it. It had fused to her shirt from the heat.
The manager was slow to respond to our needs and did not express remorse or sympathy for the lady who had been burned. She was more focused on repeating that the insurance company would be calling the victim the next day.
Later on she stated in a curt tone, and I quote "I've removed the wine from your bill, which is $300", still expecting us to stay and continue eating inside the restaurant. By this time, we were so disgusted with her attitude that all we wanted to do was leave.
She argued with the head of our group over the bill and after half an hour of arguing said "Fine, if that's what you want to do, do that." Not once did she apologize to anyone in our group, least of all to the member of our party that was burned by their equipment.
Never again will any of us come to this establishment. The manager's actions last night have tainted this place for all of us.
Wonderful. I love it! nothing is perfect but they come close. If you are looking for a great date or fun spot go, you will love it!
Funky Wine Bar That Knows Quality. There’s nothing better than a really great wine at the end of a long day at the office. This funky bar with their extravagant chandeliers is just the place. It’s not too loud so I can actually carry on a conversation with people, too. They also have a great selection of truffles which I’ve brought a number of clients to when I’m looking to impress them. They’re not the cheapest in town but they’re worth the money.
I’ve definitely been to better places in the city, but this bar is pretty nice. Decent wine
selection and lots of food to choose from. We got a meze tasting platter with the shrimp
dumplings, artichoke hearts, and the brie croutons. This is very light fare; don’t come
here on an empty stomach.
Excelent. Everything was great highly recommended
One of My Favorite Spots. Looking for a good time on a friday night?? AYZA is definitely the spot to be. Randomly stopped by the lounge looking for a good time with a couple friends.. and turned into one of those unforgettable nights. Beauitful ladies.. Well dressed and well mannered crowd. Not to mention the hostess who took care of me and my entourage.. Slowly but surely becoming one of my favorite spots.
NICE. The AYZA is one of my favorite bars, and is probably one of the best kept secrets in Hells Kitchen. They make the drinks strong and they make them well, with super friendly staff, an excellent and eclectic musical selection, and a timeless but hip ambiance. I'm not much of a drinker, but when I want to have a little sip, this is one of my top choices
