"Clearly a lot of attention to the use of a large variety of spices and ingredients but the result is not satisfactory for the most part."

"Food was terrific, and their wine recommendation was on point. The restaurant was not filled to capacity (we had a reservation for 9 PM) and it was quiet throughout the meal. There was a slight snafu when it came to splitting the bill three-ways, but the staff was extremely apologetic and quick about correcting the error."

"It was my second time there and I liked it even more than the first time. Again, we have ordered the 7 course tasting menu but this time with pairing wine. The food was absolutely delicious! Every course was unique and what made it more interesting, we got different dishes! Wine pairing was perfect match to every dish. Service was very pleasant too. If you want to spend a pleasant evening with amazing meal it's certainly place to go."

"Three of us had a very nice dining experience. The service could not have been better. The prices were a bit high but included the gratuity. We had no idea what percentage it was so we left an extra $20 because the waitress was so good. The portions were a bit on the small side, but we did have appetizers and dessert so we were not hungry. The good was very good, but not great. I think the best dish we had was a barbecued squid appetizer."

"This is the first time that I am writing a review of the many restaurants that we have gone to through Opentable.
Though we have been to Annisa quite a few times we try to save it for special occasions because it has such wonderful food and such a quiet, lovely, intimate atmosphere. That was our experience again on this visit except that our server was so disengaged, disinterested and clearly not cut out to do what she was doing that her attitude put a damper on the entire dining experience. It was not that she was overwhelmed with too many tables- it was just very obviously a job that she had absolutely no interest in.
The experience made us wonder whether the new no-tipping/tip included trend in several high quality restaurants will be to the detriment of the dining experience that one is hoping to find.
If so I would much rather leave a tip that is in accordance with the service. Though I don' t think that the kitchen should be punished for bad service on the part of waitstaff (nor do I feel that waitstaff should be tipped less because the kitchen is at fault.)
If it is true that the waitstaff feels no obligation to perform their jobs professionally because they are already assured of a good tip (though it now needs to be shared) maybe the no-tipping policy should be reconsidered.

"Great food, service and price. I had the 7 course prix fixe. The chef did a great job in selecting each dish for me throughout. Each dish is a like a piece of artwork, looks very fancy. As far as the price, I think it is a good deal especially tips are not accepted and refused. As far as the taste goes, VERY DELICIOUS. This was the second time I dine there. I would go back from time to time. The best chef will always be the best chef. Thank You Anita Lo. Good Job!"

"The food here is exquisite without being fussy. Everything done with a light had, and with interesting sauces and spices. Sort of a West meets East approach. My wife and I had entirely different meals, and we were both delighted. The cheese course, which we shared, was also excellent, and the wine list is superb. No real bargains on it, but the prices are not bad. One of the best restaurants in NYC, and truly pleasant to eat in. Quiet, muted colors, small but not crowded dining room. Attentive and friendly service."

"We went to Annissa on a dead Monday night. Everything was off. Blaring music to cover the dead room, awkward service. When we asked for a minor change to cheese plate dessert ( two pieces of blue in lieu of a different cheese!), we were told "chef" doesn't allow changes. Too impudent to deal with on a dead quiet night. Then they tried to charge us for coffees we didn't have! Just a Hugh disappointment-- never again."

"The room is so simple yet so elegant and stunning. The tiny bar sits in the big picture window and is so cute. Eric the bartender is a savant making spectacular cocktails. Dinner started with a bristling amuse bouche of a variety of peppers reduced to a delectable bite in a tiny pastry shell. The mandatory dumplings with foie gras and broth inside the dumpling exploded in your mouth. The flavors weren't quite as fabulous as I had expected, but it was still very satisfying. The grilled squid appetizer with Thai basil and peanuts had hidden flavors revealing themselves with every bite and was a huge hit. The Pakora fried oysters arrived like a painting and were delicious. The broiled mackerel with garlic fried milk came highly recommended and was a revelation--the mackerel perfectly cooked, skin crisp, and a trip to Flavor Town. The pan roasted chicken with sherry, white truffle, and pigs feet was simply amazing. It looked like it had been molded into a large breast shaped brick with the bone sticking out at one end....very different.....but the flavors were sharp and on point, with a cozy, luscious 'gravy' almost like a home cooked meal, but somehow elevated to upscale restaurant faire. Fantastic! For dessert, the beignets burst with bourbon upon each bite, and the bread pudding was comforting. They brought a complimentary dessert as well--the tasting of chocolate and malted desserts. Fun and inventive! Absolutely loved this place and will definitely be back. Anita Lo is a genius!!"
