Great for Special Events 12/20/2005

I planned a large formal event at La Maganette for a 5 course wait service and attended another with buffet both in Spring 2004. The ambience is beautiful, and the manager was so great to work with. I preferred the wait service food over the buffet. There is also a dance floor and a podium. Also, 5 courses (appetizer, salad, pasta, main, desert) for $30 (plus tax and gratuity)? You can't beat that deal! Pros: Private downstairs Cons: Books quickly! more

WAY TOO EXPENSIVE 7/18/2005

Wow, Paid 9.50 bux during normal Happy Hour times for a drink!!! more

god awful 12/18/2004

The food was god awful. You are far better off buying pasta and sauce at the local deli and cooking it yourself. Even more unbelievable that they charge average $15 a plate for something that tastes like cafeteria food. New york city is full of good italian restaurants, don't bother with this one. Pros: nice atmosphere Cons: , expensive more

Great After Work Happy Hour 11/1/2004

This place has great food and a after work happy hour scene. I noticed none of the other reviews mentioned the parties that go on inside the restaurant downstairs. 10 bucks gets you inside and a small buffet dinner. After you eat the party begins, I'll admit that in the beginning it was kinda slow but then out of no where the party exploded and there was standing room only! Lucky for me and my group we had a table right by the dance floor. We partied so hard and long we had no idea that it was after midnight and we were still going strong. We're planningto go back in the near future. Pros: After work party more

La Maganette Restaurant 8/23/2003

One of my favorite places in Manhattan is the La Maganette Restaurant. I try to get there at least once a year for dinner. My children also love the food here. (they are married) They come into the city with a Limo to have a wonderful dinner with great service. My son just took his in-laws there for a special birthday dinner. Everyone loved the food. I just have just one complaint, I wish the restaurant was in Long Island!! I don't like to drive into manhattan. Pros: good prices, great food, great service Cons: Not in Long Island more

Good for 30 years 12/24/2002

My wife and I have gone to this restaurant for 30 years and it is one of our very favorites. Fair prices, very good food, good portions, and a good head waiter, Guido. Reserve a table in his section which is just beyond the bar on the mail level. He only handles about four tables. more

Great Italian Food, Horrible Desserts 9/30/2002

I had dinner at La Maganette once. Their appetizers and main dishes were really excellent - I dined with 5 people and everyone loved it. The waiter has been there for 30 years, he was a little weird, but very nice. The place is nicely decorated, although it's borderline tacky. There are many tables with umbrellas outside, and it's usually packed during lunch. There were two things I disliked about this restaurant. First, there were so many elderly people there that I felt I was eating in some nursing home. It was a bit depressing. Second, the desserts were absolutely disgusting, the most awful I've ever had at a restaurant. Their tiramisu was served frozen. The cheescake was old and room temperature. Even the waiter agreed that their dessert is nasty, and that the chef is clueless when it comes to dessert. Pros: Good Main Dishes Cons: Disgusting desserts, Too many elderly more
