The Northern Italian food is as good as it gets, however the Service is why one should go! Mario, the Captain is the perfect host & the rest of the staff follows suit.

I have eaten here several times and the food is outstanding. A little pricey but well worth it.

It's a classic Italian restaurant with classic Italian food. Very pleasant surprised based on the midtown neighborhood but definitely worth a visit. I had a business lunch and it was perfect, not too loud, not too crowded, not too rushed.

The food here is consistently excellent. The service is very attentive. This restaurant is well-run and one of the better italian restaurants in NYC that I have eaten in.

I went to this restaurant with my wife a couple of months ago, and we were dressed appropriately. It didn't seem to matter since we're in our 30's and about 35 years younger than thier clientele. We were seated up front in the bar area. While I would normally be offended I didn't mind the privacy, although it was quite insulting. Althought the food is very good, it is not worth the prices. If you want to eat after 7pm and like to not eat in a morgue, try a different place.

Aside from Il Giglio on the West Side, this is the best Italian food I have had in the city. The waiters were very attentive but didn't hover too much during dinner. The fried Zucchini durinng dinner was AMAZING! We had a pasta appetizer and a meat and fish entree and all we terriffic. The pasta is all homemade and the sauce is delicious. My girlfriend had the swordfish and I had the filet. Both were cooked perfectly to our wishes. Defenitely a recomendation to anyone who wants a nice Italian meal on the east side of Manhattan without the noise of your regular NYC restaurants.

I brought two out of town guests on an early Friday evening without a reservation. The male was wearing shorts. The maitre d' was very welcoming/accommodating and seated us so that bare legs were not visible to other diners. When it became clear that we were on a limited budget - we ordered 3 pasta dishes for the main/only course, no appetizers, dessert or coffee and 2 glasses of wine - he and the entire wait staff still could not have been nicer/more attentive. They continuously filled our water glasses, brought us extra bread and allowed us to linger without hesitation. Also, the complimentary hors d'oeuvre and plate of Italian cookies helped complete a very pleasant dinning experience - the pasta dishes were excellent and plentiful. I left what I thought was a nice tip - $20 on an $87 bill that included the tax - and look forward to returning when I am prepared to spend more to sample other offerings. It has been awhile since I have dined in a very nice/elegant east mid town establishment, and I probably should not be surprised by prices of $19.50 for the cheapest pasta dish and $11 for glasses of wine, which were a very nice Chianti and Pinot Noir. My female guest meeting and shaking hands with fellow diner Chris Rock was an added bonus. Bravo Grifone, and multi bravo maitre d' and staff!
