Great Place, Great Atmosphere, Great Service – Stopped in for a few drinks with coworkers, it is a great place and the service at the bar was friendly and prompt. Great cocktails. My new favorite place to visit when on business in NY.
RIP OFF!!! – The nicest things I can say are that they were able to seat a large party on short notice (perhaps because they've scared away so many people?) and they had decent salads. The rest of the experience was not pleasant. First of all they pulled the classic "what kind of water trick". If you said still water they brought you a bottle costing $7, and if you said sparkling it was $8! We were horrified and angry that anyone would still try to pull this kind of nonsense! Add to that the waitress was snotty when she deigned to make an apperance. The food was mediocre, and they forgot my mom's order entirely. Not a good experience. I would never go back.
Awful service – My friend and I went here & were told that there was a party that was about to start but we were welcome to stay. Before our server took our drink order she told us that the prices on the menu were going to be higher that night because of the party. We wondered why because the party hadn't started yet and we weren't even a part of it. She never apologized, never changed her facial expression. Just told us that was the way it was. Then they hovered over us and brought our check over to say that they were closing soon. This was my first time. It seemed low-key, casual which is what appealed to me. But in the end, the service turned me off.
Ok small portions but overall decent – Went there with 3 friends. To be honest with you the appatizers are bigger than the acutal main dishes. Buffalo mozz app is out of this world. Had seafood ling. Very good!!! Good food, super service Waiter was the man, fast seating, great place. I would go back but there are just so many to choose from in NYC.
Just Plain Awful – Filet comprised of membrane and sinew, roasted duck primarily fat and bone, undrinkable over-priced Chianti Clasico(screw-on top?). Waiter all but demanded a 33% tip...which she didn't get. She didn't make the food but she was rarely seen. Surprisingly, the desserts were excellent.
fantastic for parties – I threw a birthday dinner on Friday night at 8pm for about 13 people. The beautiful blonde hostess was extremely friendly to us (despite the crowds of people waiting for tables outside), the service was quick and efficient, the food was excellent (nothing cold!), and the manager was very very accomodating. The tab was about $650, which included an appetizer and entree for each person and 4 bottles of wine for all of us. The manager even threw in a huge home-made birthday cake for all of us. It was really a great night.
pleasant surprise – My friend and I stumbled upon Diva on a Thursday night when were starving. Great martinis, very good food (try the tuna tartare), nice atmosphere and great service. I'll definitely go back.
More a Mandy than Mariah – This place is no real Diva, while the bread was outstanding, the one piece given to you was a pathetic tease. All the food tasted great but was a feast for Kate Moss not someone with a real appetite. The goat cheese in filo dough, the grilled calamari and the hamburger were outstanding tastes, but again just "tastes"- go for a light bite if you have the money to spend, and look at the beautiful people to remind you why you're barely eating.
Good hangout. – Diva has a good personal-size pizza and a creative martini menu. Great location.
great lobster ravioli's!! – the only reason i go to diva is to get their AWESOME lobster raviolis. They really are the best ones i have i ever tasted. a little pricey but worth every last penny. diva is in a great location and is always crowded. if you later on in the evening, you will be crammed side by side with people, just so you know, but the lobster raviolis are worth it. great crowd.
