    Best Dining Experience in Manhattan!

    My best friend, who is Armenian, was visiting me from California, and I read about this place and decided we had to try it. It was hands-down one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. The food was absolutely delicious and authentic - we were so excited to see so many familiar dishes on the menu that her mother and grandmother often prepare at home (like bereg and soujuk). The service was amazing and all of the food was absolutely delicious, but the highlights were the Soujuk Almayass (Armenian sausage topped with quail eggs), Mantee Traditional (Armenian ravioli), Moutabbal Almayass (beet spread), and Dzadzek Almayass (cucumber yogurt spread). One of the managers, Mario, came to our table to check on us. He was extremely friendly and personable and made sure that we were taken care of very well.

    Beyond gourmet food

    Dining at Almayass has been a unique experience on all levels. I would travel back to NYC just to eat the incredibly good food and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere created by an educated and caring staff. The array of plates was endless, the wine selection top notch, and the succulent desserts made for a memorable and enchanting evening. I would highly recommend it for any gourmet connaisseur looking to have an authentic and wonderful meal. Thank you Mario for your hospitality and generosity, and special thanks to my friend Houry for that recommendation.

    unbelievable middle-eastern

    this place was a find. we went to a party there as a fundraiser and got to taste so many dishes. top of the list were manti (i loved the spinach and my husband loved the beef), sou boreg (a kind of lasagna without sauce), an eggplant mash with infused beets, and another eggplant app with yogurt drizzled over it, and finally a cured beef called basturma served with a quail egg over crostini. hands down the apps win at this place. the kebobs were really good too but the apps blew me away. service was also quick and courteous. the decor is a little frumpy.

    Get the mezze

    This is not an ethnic dive but a surprisingly elegant restaurant. One piece of advice: get the mezze. There's nothing wrong with the main course kebabs, but they're a bit same-old same-old while the appetizers are fantastic. We had yogurt, dumplings, lentils, kibbeh and warm feta and there wasn't a dud among them. I think they have a lunch special of appetizers only, which would be a great introduction to this place.

    Fell short

    Reading the menu was exciting & mouthwatering but eating the food fell short. The Samkah Harra (spicy Red Snapper) was beautifully served but utterly bland. The Subereg (pastry filled w/cheese) was undercooked & tasteless. In general the food was insipid & characterless. We did enjoy the lemony Tabouli in spite of the raw(!), teeth-cracking bulgar-wheat in it. Restaurant noise is a non-issue for us but at Almayass we were continuously aware of the loud & outdated European music. I feel that some exotic Middle-Eastern music would have been much more appropriate and helped create an atmosphere. Another unfortunate ambient issue was the bright lights throughout. It cheapened the experience and missed an opportunity for sensuous ambient, as you would hope from an upscale Middle-Eastern venue. The service was friendly.
