Love this place! Venue is amazing, both inside and outdoors. Staff is best I’ve ever seen. Incredibly responsive. Food is delicious. We go here for any special occasion we can and to show out of town guests the best of NY.

Food and service were very nice. The staff was on point and the food delicious. A bit pricey for lunch but then if you're dining there you already know this.

We are frequent diners and were never disappointed, until now. Food was only okay when it is usually exceptional. The room temperature was hot. We asked the waitress to raise the AC, but it never really got cooler. Perhaps, because it was a Monday? It will be awhile until we return.

I love Casa Lever ; it my dinner of choice for Fridays & Saturday evenings .
Last Friday was lower energy & less of a chic crowd .
Our waiter had an edgy and ungracious manner .
NONE OF THIS IS TYPICAL , THIS PLACE USUALLY TOP NOTHCH ON ALL SCORES .

While the food was AMAZING and of the highest quality and character, the ambience outside on the patio was like a cheap frat party. The band was also AMAZING but drowned out by the raucous sounds of the rowdy drunken frat boy-like patrons. Abhorrent that such a fine establishment would be so grossly out of step with pricing and food.

Most impressed with Casa Lever. Came early before a show, had the weekend supper and were blown away by the choices, and both quality and quantity of the food. Loved the salads for appetizer and the chicken paillard and the skirt steak entrees, with an amazing chocolate hazelnut gianduia for dessert. All of this was definitely a great value. I would commend the service too, professional and friendly without being overbearing. Also, who wouldn't like looking at a couple of dozen original Warhols while eating? Looking forward to coming back.

A bit pricey, they get you on the liquor, great food, loved the gazpacho soup, excellent food, portions could have been larger.
Ask for a private booth. Ideal for intimate​ private conversations. Upscale.

The reason I did not give them five stars is we had an overly aggressive waitress pushing drinks.

Excellent mixture of classic and innovative Italian food, and completely classic NYC power-broker ambiance except for the unusually friendly and welcoming staff for such a venue.

The maitre d greeted us like we were the tax collector. Our waitperson was uninformed, uninspired and not particularly talented. The gluten-free pasta was overcooked angel hair, the worst kind. The service was iffy, the room was noisy, the art was pretty neat.

On the way out, the only person having fun in the entire restaurant gave us a warm goodbye.

It's hard to imagine why anyone would return. Overrated, underfun.

Always a wonderful time at Casa Lever - even if the rain closed the outdoor patio bar, forcing everybody into the cramped indoor bar. Great food and attentive service. One of my favorite restaurants when in NY for business.
