Living in Manhattan, maybe im spoiled. My wife and i eat out about 4 nights a week at all good restaurants. Last night we decided to go to Bice because we knew it would be quiet due to the 100 degree temp and being a Saturday night people would be in the Hamptons or elsewhere. The one thing that really irks me is when a restaurant microwaves my food to warm it up. We ordered some appetizers and a appetizer sized eggplant parm. after that we ordered the cold poached salmon to share. after sending the eggplant parm twice for being cold in the center, yet in a fire hot nuked plate we decided to cancel our Salmon. Pretty place, decent service but a lot better places to go in NYC for a LOT less money.

We had been to Bice's Orlando branch several times - it was quiet and classy. Went to the NY restaurant Saturday night - noisy kids were all over, including one running around the tables as the staff just watched. Nothing against kids - but for the prices they charge, the place should feel like an upscale restaurant, not a playground. (One couple came in, looked around, then left.) The food wasn't disappointing - the veal & spinach ravioli was pretty good, but charging a whopping $17.50 for a glass of California cabernet left a bad taste in my mouth - I mean, that's just outrageous in this economy. You got us this time, but we won't be back.

My wife and I went for a late lunch on a Saturday, dissapointed there wasn't a lunch menu. She had a soup and salad and I had an Italian dish as an app. With 4 glasses of wine the bill was $120. The soup was home made and excellent, as was the salad. Maybe we'd go back for dinner, knowing it's just pricey. Hey, it's New York.

Food was well prepared and delicious. Ambiance more than acceptable. But the wait staff was indifferent, "snooty," inattentive and generally inadequate. Have had much better service in a diner!

Overpriced with fair food. Too pricey and not great service. We would not go back. Little Italy in Soho worth the ride. Much better food.

We had dinner at Bice during Restaurant Week 2010 and from the getgo were made to feel like second-class citizens. The waiter brought us the regular menu; when we asked for the RW menu, he said he'd find one. We ordered a bottle of (grossly overpriced) wine--which arrived after we were halfway through our appetizers. Service throughout was rushed and perfunctory; the food was clearly pre-prepared and reheated. Portions were microscopic--three average-size ravioli for a main course. Considering that the check for 3 people, even with the $35 dinner, came to well over $200, thanks to the wine, I was really peeved to be treated like someone's mildly embarrassing relative. The food was okay, not great, but the attitude--boy, they have perfected that!

We were referred here while standing in a taxi line during our last trip to NY. Food is excellent. The gnocchi is fantastic and hearty portions- you will not go away hungry! Ambiance is very romantic and visited with one of the chefs both times we ate there- very friendly atmosphere. Yes, we picked Bice twice with all the choices in NY! Weekends are a little more crowded so reservations would probably be a must if you plan to dine at prime dinner time. We will go back on our next trip there this year!
