    New York, New York. If I can make it on hype...

    Nice energy and good looks. A Danny Meyer expectation fulfilled. But a quarter-sized pasta dish, tasty but so precious it stressed me out to finish it with only yummy bread and a la carte decent side dish left. I did not expect family style of course but such little value proposition for food which is not amazing - is simply not right. Worse, my stylish New York grown up, well-ordering table of 8 foodies on a night with no wait and then the un-asked for check gets dropped by the server and then no more service? No way my friend. That in a first class place is a cardinal sin. Will not be back unless for a drink on someone else. Meyer places have long relied on an underpinning of loyal customers. This seems cynically designed for only the trendy and hotel visitor crowd. They may enjoy if if they eat lots of bread but otherwise, pastas, which, I'm sorry are entree options in this town are spa teasers and the pleasant but perfunctory service made you feel anonymous all added up to another over praised place. We had a lovely time sending off a colleague but the restaurant needs much more.

    Real-ly?

    Good meal, fine service today at 1:00 p.m. but (slightly paraphrased for space): 1. Request for any of two major (Bombay or Hendricks) gins: "not stocked." 2. Meal ending request for limoncello: "We ran out." (Exact quote). 3. Meal ending request for espresso: Not available as "we are preparing the beans."

    Disappointed about Maialino

    Expected great food, great service, great everything from another Danny Meyer restaurant. Service was lacking. Apps were fine, pastas were overwhelmed by salt & pepper, and the portions tiny. Sorbets were the star of the meal. Bread was good, but it was our first and last visit.

    Not Recommended

    I agree with all the other reviews re: miniscule portions. I am not a big-portion person - in fact I usually complain about the opposite: too much food. But this was plain ridiculous: $23 for a 1-ounce sliver of trout and small handful of salad greens? It wasn't even good, just okay. My husband's smoked swordfish was even smaller - the size of his thumb. Especially disappointing after we waited 1 1/2 hours to get served. What was up with that? Seems the restaurant is more interested in preserving its hipster vibe than in satisfying its diners.

    Just OK.

    Ate dinner the other night. The pasta portions are miniscule. Pasta did not taste fresh. Could have been Barillo. Staff is nice and so is atmosphere but, food is lacking in portion size, freshness, and innovation.

    Awesome place, now figure the food out

    Love the atmosphere, overlooking Gramercy Park, and I want so badly to walk away saying that food was worth the price....but I just can't. Dedicating half your menu to app. portions of pasta and then having a few even more expensive dinner entress is a good way to make a lot of money, but not leave a customer satisfied. I know it's not trendy and I know the chefs that visit Italy insist on small portions...but it's just not practical given the market. If you want to charge me double and include a full size dinner pasta fine, but don't force me to get a few pastas, order dinner, than dessert, and a bottle of wine for $350 or suffer the alternative of leaving hungry.
