The food is excellent, the prices are some of the highest in the city. Friday night still had a lot of open seats too. It's a cold atmosphere although the service was impeccable. It was more of a French style serving v Italian style (larger portions). It was Ok but to justify the superbly high prices, it needs to be... More

Casa Lever has an interesting menu and I have had very interesting appetizers but not as good entrees. Don't get me wrong, the food is super good, I have had recently the Veal Milanese and the Bacalao, they are good but I felt they were missing something. Despite that the polenta with calamari is great and the deserts too. Be... More

Casa Lever is a textbook classic, fabulous sophisticated urban expense-account Italian dining experience in New York. The modernity and uniqueness of the space and the fabulous food and service to match the prices. Every bite was delicious and luxurious. The duck breast is served with chunks of seared foie gras and is amazing. The wine list is great and the... More

Where do I begin? This is the art of restaurant that all should aspire to. From your opening greeting, cocktails, and on...everything was exquisite. Next time I must try the truffle menu. We decided to go with a tableful of apps for 3 couples & then entrees. My pasta with sea urchin & crab was sublime. Everyone's meals and desserts... More

Excellent food. Prices reflect New York COL $40 for a salmon entree. It was cooked to perfection. The bread that came with the dinner was also excellent. Service was a bit slow. We had to wave down a server any time we wanted anything. Restaurant has a buzz to it, and it is very very noisy. Do not plan on... More

Perfectly located in mid-town Manhattan, Casa Lever is a solid choice for an after work drinks or a business dinner. This place screams Mad Men and is indeed dominated by advertising and financial types. It certainly has a cool vibe although somewhat manufactured. The food is good and relatively standard fare; however, this place is about the scene and the... More

Obviously, Casa Lever is highly rated, located in the iconic Lever House off Park Avenue, with a retro 60's interior, modern Warhol's, and a slew of comfortable banquettes. On weekends the restaurant is less full, and arriving at 6 PM, we were able to get a spacious corner booth. The food was from beginning to end wonderful, with the drinks... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
