    Wonderful Dinner!

    This is a very comfy, warm restaurant with very attentive service and great food! The menu is quite creative and the portions are just right. Definitely recommend.

    food is poor, skip this place

    We live a few blocks away and have always seen this place crowded and have heard good things from friends who dined here years ago. We weren't sure if it, like many other places in the hood now, was just a scene or actually still served decent food. So, we decided to try it on a whim and were grossly disappointed. Unlike others, we found the service okay, but the food ranged from mediocre to horrible. We decided to share several apps and skip the fish/meat entrees (chilean sea bass, really?) The extra virgin salad and fritto misto were halfway decent (arugula, cucumber and avocado were fresh and nicely dressed. the fritto misto was hot and crisp). Sadly, the other items we ordered were actually borderline inedible. The crab cakes had no taste whatsoever, were horribly overcooked (their exterior was a crispy dark brown), and the sauces that came with them resembled baby food in both taste and texture. The scallops were gummy, the bacon wrapping them was rubbery, and the potato latke under them was a lead bomb. Both of these dishes actually made me think of something one would feed a pet, and not necessarily their own pet. The truffled mac and cheese tart lacked any composition- it was as if someone took kraft microwaved mac 'n cheese, sprinkled truffles on it and then stuck a pastry in. Overall, the food was a failure. With so many better restaurants in the neighborhood it is perplexing why so many people dine here night after night. It is a sad testament to the neighborhood.

    Comeback!

    What a wonderful meal! Thank you for the attention to detail. We had a great meal and good time with friends we hadn't seen in years. We will comeback!

    Just alright.

    was 3rd time at EV. 1st time was a knockout, but it was summer, we brought the dog and were able to score a seat outside. 2nd time with OOtowners and they would have been pleased with just about anything. 3rd time was a total drag. service blew. atmos was pretencious and my coffee was cold. and why is it so hard to find cream rather than milk for coffee? Basically a standard brunch spot- nothing wildly outrageous. just overpriced eggs benedict that are served over pieces of bacon, instead of Canadian Bacon... lame. Get the french toast...

    Dramatically Downhill

    I like some of the other reviewers have been dining at Extra Virgin for many years. Recently, we noticed that the quality and the flavor of the food was declining, but we held out hope that they would right the ship. Nothing prepared me for the disaster that was our last dining experience. After seating two parties that seemed to be her friends before us, even though we had put our name in first, the hostess/manager begrudgingly seated our party. I mentioned that I have been eating at Extra Virgin for years and I did not appreciate the flagrant favoritism. She disrespectfully replied that this has always been the seating policy and if I did not like it I dont have to come back...which I won't. The service was mediocre at best and the artichoke appetizer that had always been delicious was virtually inedible. The entrees came and were not much better. So long glory days of Extra Virgin

    Great place to feed adult children when visiting NYC

    All three of our children (20-somethings) reside in NYC. Our favorite place to dine when visiting them is Extra Virgin, especially on a Sunday night. Love the meatballs. Ate there last night. Delicious!

    Extra Good!

    We all had excellent meals (six of us) and great service. The only complaint is that it is very loud and a little too dark. I would definitely go back. They did their best to save our table while we waited for the rest of our party to arrive which we really appreciated.
