Gusto Ristorante e Bar Americano
Posted by NYC Diner on 01/21/2007
We heard so much about Gusto from friends and were excited to try it out. What a disappointment. From the start we were treated with indifference by the waitstaff. And through the meal it was tough to get service. It was as if they were doing us a favor by allowing us to sit in their restaurant. I hate attitude like that. The food was tasty but really average which normally would not have been a big issue but since it was so expensive, I really expected something more top notch. Okay, we tried it....

Gusto rocked my world last night. I ate dinner with a party of six and we enjoyed every moment of our experience. Without question, the highlight of this restaurant was the food. Inventive, creative and subtle.... I'll go back again and again.

I was strolling down the beautiful avenue and there it was: Gusto, such an elegant establishment, I had to walk in to check out the menu as my friend and I were meeting for a late brunch. After perusing the menu, debating between this restaurant and another place, where the crowd was too loud and drunk, I opted for Gusto. The pastries, fresh baked on the house: came complimentary with the brunch, and they were fantastic, with this cranberry jam on the side that was fresh and lovely. We both ordered the staple breakfast: two eggs, country bread, and bacon. To our secret glee, they messed up our order and gave us roasted tomatoes, instead of bacon. I should have seen this as a sign from the gods to stay away from the bacon, but instead we insisted on our bacon which came free of charge and with apologies. Aside from the bus boy taking my fork and knife away…after the pastries, and not providing a new fork and knife; and them not offering us plates for the pastries, the waiter was lovely, and never rushed us. The atmosphere was ideal for a three hour brunch with a good friend to catch up on the past week’s highs and lows. There was the perfect window light streaming in, as we ate… the roasted tomatoes fantastic, the country bread, perfectly toasted with a fresh basil on the side, and drank good espresso...and as I ate Everything, being I was famished, I also ate the bacon.

We first enjoyed this restaurant in the fall - the food, service and atmosphere were a wonderous thing. Throughout 2005 our praise and enjoyment started to falter - things weren't consistent. And after last night, I would not venture again to this place. This once delightful restaurant has gone downhill. It's a shame.

This is the first time I have ever took the time to write a review (negative or positive) but I felt it was necessary considering how disappointed I was. We had a reservation and still waited an hour to be seated, only to find the food to be mediocore and overpriced. The ambiance of the restaurant was really nice and super trendy (the only reason we actually waited) but not worth it.

The atmosphere and food are very good. I think the chef is doing an amazing job. However, if you value professional service - this is not the place for you. The hostess was reluctant to check our coats (not sure why) and our server was way too familiar. Finally, they ran out of red wine glasses and used the excuse that "its a packed house." Despite the good food, I won't return.
