Good food, real Italian restaurant with good service and nice wine.
Lovely restaurant but noise level makes it difficult to enjoy the meal. Had not been for a number of years. The place is getting a bit shabby. Needs a facelift.
This restaurant is still my favorite of all time.
Is this the beginning of the end for da Umberto? I've gone there about once a year for the past decade and it's been consistently very good to excellent every time until this week. On past visits, even Italian friends of mine with high standards have agreed that the place was top quality and authentic. But this week's meal was mediocre at best. The arugula salad: uninspired, with mealy, juiceless apple slices, hard-to-detect dressing and a shave of pecorino dead-cold from the refrigerator. My chicken breasts: overcooked and napped with a wine sauce that can only be described as sour. The brussels sprouts: hard, underdone, not sufficiently charred. My wife's carpaccio looked very good but her penne with eggplant tasted not much better than we could do at home. The only salvation was the biscotti with our coffee: spiced like a panforte, they were amazing. I fear that the kitchen has lost interest in excellence, and that often spells the beginning of the end. Or maybe it was just a bad day -- however, I'm not interested in finding out. There are too many other good places to eat.
Service was really awful. Rushed, rude, careless.
We haven’t been here for several years but decided to celebrate a special event with family members on Saturday night. It was a wonderful evening- excellent food, professional and attentive service. We will be back soon.
It is as close to eating in Italy as you can get! The food and service are especially fabulous.
We were seated at a table in the corner by the kitchen. It was loud and cramped. The service was extremely slow. I had the caprese salad which was bland and I had to ask for balsamic. There was no offer of freshly ground pepper and I could not get the waiters attention so gave up. The 2nd course was a split of pasta with mushrooms and black truffle and it was also kind of bland. They should have added heavy cream and cheese to the recipe - to make it much more flavorful. Again no fresh pepper was offered and the waiters were too busy to flag down. The fish was ok — white fish and veggies —served table-side with a brush of herbed oil when served. Needed more than a brush of the oil. Should have had had a sauce. The grilled veggies next to the fish were delicious. We had a nice time but very slow service and did not walk away feeling that satisfied by the overall experience.
We go to Da Umberto every year for a girl’s get together after one of our yearly industry events. The food is always outstanding and they have a great selection of wine. The service is always top notch.
The food was ok. We orderd the specials: Orata and Swordfish ended up on the quite expensive side for what it was $38 per dish. Swordfish was a small piece.Ambiance is nice. My husband had been there many years ago and thought it was fun to try it again.
But we will not go back. The reason why I will send in a message to the restaurant.
Excellent food service and ambience. !!
This is a fabulous restaurant. Food, service and ambiance are all terrific!!!!
I have been patronizing Da Umberto since it opened in 1987, The food was as good then as it is today. Among the 30 dishes that they recite and the other 30 on the menu, one has a lot of choice. It is all good. The service if good too -- very old world and professional. These waiters are not kids waiting for their next part off-off Broadway. The manager and son of the original owner knows his wine and runs the restaurant well. Be prepared to spend a little. Per person with a cocktail, and two bottles of wine, three courses, tax and tip the tab was $150. Given the volume of food and drink, that isn't bad.
Excellent food and service. The one caveat was that we ordered the tagliatelle special (with mushrooms and truffles) and found out when we got the bill that it cost $60 (despite a ravioli with mushroom and truffle entree on the menu costing only $29). Of course they don't tell you the cost of the specials when they describe them to you - seemed like they charged way more than it was worth and what it should cost relative to the rest of the menu. Left a bad taste in our mouths so to speak.
Delicious food - loved the specials! High energy yet romantic place. Service was good though a few mishaps I believe due to our server ending shift mid-meal. I look forward to returning.
Always a pleasure to celebrate life's events, big and small, at this restaurant. Food perfect, and they accommodate dietary restrictions so nicely.
The meal, service and ambiance were all excellent.
Great food and excellent service
Reunion of people who had not seen each other in over 40 years! Great food and never pushed us to turn table over!!!!
The food was awful!
Excellent as always
Fabulous! What took me so long to try this gem? Perfect on every level. Can’t wait to return.
my all-time favorite restaurant. The only tiramisu I will eat is here. The best ever....
I’ve been going to Da for 30 years. Many many times there. ALWAYS flawless service, and the food is perfect!
Really fantastic stable here in Chelsea/Village. The food is always excellent and the service is impeccable. The noise level really depends on the number of people there, thus the "moderate" noise level I gave was based on a Thursday evening (usually a busy restaurant evening). Expensive, but very much worth it, depending on the event.
The food was fantastic at this restaurant - but equally welcoming and wonderful was the service. Every aspect of our meal was executed well. The whole team made us feel welcome - even though our party size changed at the last minute. The waiter made excellent recommendations. We will make this a must-visit on our next trip back to NYC.
Went early so it was very quiet. Wait staff all lovely. The food was excellent. Will return
After all these years, still top notch. It ain’t cheap, but the food, service and environment are outstanding.
I love the service and the quality of the food is very good.
Remains a really wonderful place to share a meal with good friends or family. The food is a cut above you typical good NY Italian — inventively prepared fresh food. But mostly the service and ambiance are really wonderful: attentive but never rushed or obtrusive. A wonderful meal and evening every time.
Wonderful restaurant - great food and service. Expensive, but worth it.
I’m embarrassed as I picked this for a business dinner with clients of my husbands.
I won’t bore you with the details because all I have to say is
Mediocre and expensive.
Reunion among work colleagues
The food was just ok. The octopus salad was lackluster. Excellent service in that they honored a special request very delightfully. Panna cotta desert was excellent. Not a great value.
Da Umberto is a jewel of an Italian restaurant located in Chelsea. The restaurant is well laid out with elegant lighting that enhances the entire experience. The service is classic Continental, very attentive and personal. The crowd is well-heeled and don't be surprised to see a celebrity or two. The food is well-prepared and attractively presented. Fit for foodies. We dine there frequently.
The ambiance was very nice, the food was delicious with good size portions, the service was very good. The only issue I had was the price — over $100 per person.
As usual the food was terrific and service well paced
Always love coming back here - the food is amazing!
Excellent as always
