"This was a very disappointing meal. From the start, the service was woefully out of sync and the pacing of each course was a mess. When dishes did come out, the servers were nearly unintelligible. Most importantly, the food was simply average at best. For a tasting menu restaurant, this was terrible value. I strongly recommend Alinea or others over Spiaggia."

"Great weeknight dinner spot. Pre-fix menu is larger than you would think. I had trouble finishing my 7 courses and had no room left for dessert.
Charcuterie plate was the highlight of 7 courses.

"We dined at Spiagga about 22 years ago when it had a conventional a la carte menu. We did not realize it had converted to fixed menus. And we were unprepared for how expensive the fixed menus are. It was something like $165 per person for the full menu and an additional $165 per person for the wine pairings. The short menu is a mere $95 per person plus, of course, an additional $95 per person for the wine pairings. Unless you're a serious foodie or just have money to burn, I would look elsewhere."

"We loved every course in our varied and beautiful tasting menu. The dishes were beautiful and they tasted as good as they looked. Each course was unique with special flavors that blended perfectly. My favorite may have been the foie gras served with a unique frothy soup that was the perfect complement to the elegant pate. The service was personal and warm throughout the meal and our wine balanced excellently with every course. It was a romantic, luxurious evening out. We went to celebrate the holidays -- it was the PERFECT choice."

"Great presentation, high quality and delicious food, top service, and good ambiance. Only thing missing is character, and it can come off as slightly stiff. Great to try once, though I don't think I would go back."

"We visited Spiaggia again with our usual anticipation of a great experience. Unfortunately, apparently in pursuit of a second Michelin star, they have changed to a format of tasting menus although a limited (VERY limited) a la carte was available. The tasting menus had duck as the only meat and were rather fish oriented. We opted for the "Sette", seven courses, although I substituted the duck for an excellent risotto. Although the wine pairings were recommended, I wanted to choose my own wines from the list although, with the dishes now served, anyone with wine knowledge will be hard pressed to order e.g. a good (and expensive) Barolo, since I don't believe it would pair well with the flavors on offer. It's a great pity that such an excellent, Italian-dominated wine list will, I think, be less utilized by many people. For our meal, the dishes themselves were very flavorful and even innovative but the portions were small (maybe to be expected) and, if the chef insists on having each dish described tableside, he'd better train the staff to speak more slowly and learn to pronounce the various items properly. It seemed to us that they were "going through the motions" like flight attendants giving the safety briefing and I certainly wouldn't award that kind of service a second star! I'm sorry but Spiaggia is not what it was and we, at least, do not like what it has become."

"I was excited to try this one-star rated restaurant with my French friends. I was disappointed. It was good but not that creative, and chocolate dessert wasn't up to our expectations.
Also, a bit over-priced. Finally, the service was kind of hesitant, which has no place in a one-star.
