They stopped serving before the reservation . It was explained that because of the rules in NYC restaurants stopped serving at 10 pm.

This UES legend never disappoints. Sure, it's very expensive, but there is nothing like it and you invariably see a celebrity or two. Perfect for leisurely dining and people watching. (Think of it as dinner and a show.) The food is lovely and the service is consistently superb.

Our favorite place to dine in NYC. So happy they were able to make up for the loss of space inside by utilizing a large part of the sidewalk. They did an awesome job as always.

Nello’s sidewalk service was by NYC lock-down terms all OK. As expected the food/service was not up to incident standards but they did what they could. Expensive yes/ worth the price ?

The absolute worst. I don't know how they stay in business
the prices are more than any restaurant & i've been to many
look up the prices on their menu.
There a at least six restaurant's in the area like La Charlot that the food is better the prices are %25-30 lower & has much more of a friendlier attitude
I live on the west side & La Charlot is my go to restaurant

When it comes to food and ambiance, Nello is better off competing with Olive Garden than with Michelin star restaurants.

I go to Nello when I want to feel fabulous. The atmosphere is gorgeous, classy and calming.
The service great. The food sublime.
Yes, it’s very expensive. It’s my guilty, spoil myself pleasure and cheaper than buying a Rolls.
