    Not Too Impressed

    After watching the construction of the hotel and the restaurant for MONTHS, I was very excited to eat there, especially considering the people involved in the operation. The atmosphere is great. The space is absolutely stunning. The service was great- a few mishaps, but nothing that really influenced our impression of the venue. The wine service was impeccable. The only downfall of the evening was the food itself. The diver scallop was a bit fishy and overwhelmed by the truffles. The chicken liver puree was topped with cheese- rich upon rich was too much. And, the topper was cherry tomatoes with the burrata caprese- a BIG no no. The pasta with broccoli rabe was okay- a little overcooked, but not too bad. Maybe after a few more weeks under their belt the food will get better. I hope so!

    Gemma's no gem!

    Went here last night, the wait for a Monday night was over an hour. There are some really cute things about Gemma, the fact that their entire staff is Italian, obviously makes it authentic. However, the servers are pushy and inexperienced. The prices are decent but the food is mediocre. I hate when tuna is soaked in oil, it defeats the purpose of trying to eat healthy. Personally I think Morandi is a very similar atmosphere with better food.

    Yummy!

    We stopped in here after an afternoon of shopping in SoHo. We were seated immediately and received the warmest service throughout our meal. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the menu and seemed genuinely concerned that we have a great dining experience. We tried many small plates (the goat cheese and olive crostini is a must), cheeses (La Tur...yum!) and pizza. Everything we tried was delectable. The gelati (strawberry was especially flavorful) was a delicious way to end the meal. I can't wait to go back to try the pasta and entrees. They looked wonderful!

    Too Cool

    My family and I went to Gemma after hearing all of the buzz surrounding its opening. The sceney, rustic Italian atmosphere made the restaurant. The service, on the other hand (mostly the hosts and hostesses), were snarky and abrasive. We arrived around 8:00pm and they told us we wouldn't be seated for at least three and a half hours (and they weren't even taking reservations)! They were definitely playing the "we're too cool" card, because we were sitting at our table about an hour later. Food was good, wine was reasonable.

    Exceeded My Expectations

    I walked by on the fourth day of business to a manager who was friendly and promised great fare. Three days later a friend and I were treated to attentive service and truly great Italian flavor. The zucchini florets are not to be missed and neither is the plum cobbler, highlighted by an inventive olive oil ice cream. Our atmosphere was warm, inviting and left us wanting to make this a favorite new eaterie.
