Numerous staff and not a smile in the house. The bad hotel-lobby decor alone should have sent me running, but I reminded myself of the rave reviews in Zagat's and Citysearch. At ...

Elegant and Excellent 3/23/2006

Simple but wonderful italian. The service is impeccable. And since it took a while before appearing on most surveys, I would say it's a hidden gem in the Wall Street/Financial District area. One caveat: Expensive, a comparable Italian meal may be had for less elsewhere in NYC (including the boroughs). Pros: Quiet and low key, Service Cons: Pricey more

Nice...I like 10/8/2004

Very nice restaraunt way downtown. Food was delicious although portions were smaller than I would have liked for the price. Service was great from our waiter average from support staff. Recomend for an after work date downtown. Pros: excelent wine list, cordial service more

""Undiscovered"" for good reason 11/5/2003

Numerous staff and not a smile in the house. The bad hotel-lobby decor alone should have sent me running, but I reminded myself of the rave reviews in Zagat's and Citysearch. At the table, only one place setting included a napkin. When our waiter finally came to take our order he disgustedly asked us if we were doing the prix fixe - which we were. We politely asked for napkins, which arrived much later, without apology. We never saw our waiter again. The appetizer, a salad, came right out of a bag. The glass of wine I ordered never came. Once I had the opportunity to ask about it (after my main course had arrived), there was no apology and a sloppily poured glass was plopped down. This went WAY beyond just being an ""off"" night - surely there was a mix-up at Zagats. more

What an experience! 11/3/2003

I've been to this restaurant a dozen times now for both business and pleasure, and not once have I been disappointed. The service has been wonderful, and each time I've been greeted by the overly gracious host who makes the visit even better. Not to mention the food, which is excellent! There is plenty of room downstairs for large business lunches and cocktail parties. more

What a let down!!! 8/12/2002

The absoulte worst way to fork over $150 for an unedible meal!! I dined at L'orto in December 2000 and was so impressed by them that I went back on last Friday evening, for my boyfriend's birthday, no less. Dissapointed does not begin to say it. The portobello mushrooms in balsamic vinegar tasted like it had been drowned in A1 sauce. My entree of chicken with italin sausage tasted like a chinese take-out. I could not eat more than the inital one bite and the waiter did not even ask me what was wrong with the dish!!!! Once an absolutely fabulous place but now you couldn't fina a bigger dump! You have been WARNED. more

Best Italian Downtown 7/24/2002

Everyone I take here loves it and makes it their favorite Italian restaurant Downtown. The food is always excellent. Service is top-notch. Good wine selection. Never noisy. A bit pricey, but you're on an expense account ... so enjoy! Pros: Excellent food, Good wine selection, Nice decor Cons: Allow 2 hours plus more
