Scarpetta Reviews List

Scarpetta

In a Greek revival townhouse on the edge of the Meatpacking District, LDV Hospitality brings a deft touch and unwavering passion to creating food that is unexpected and soulful. An Italian expression that means “little shoe” – or the shape bread takes when used to soak up a dish — Scarpetta represents the pure pleasure of savoring a meal down to its very last taste. Amongst many accolades, Scarpetta NYC received a three-star review from The New York Times and a nomination for Best New Restaurant in the country from the James Beard Foundation in 2009.

"I chose this location to introduce my Dad to my Girlfriend. Could not have made a better choice. She is a vegetarian and they have a complete vegetarian menu. Even brought the meat Stromboli in a separate basket for us. The service was great and the food was amazing. She got a lentil dish, Dad got a bass dish and I got the spaghetti which they are known for and I know why! the espresso budino was amazing. She still invited me out after the dinner and he used the word keeper so in all could not have had a better meal!"

"Creative modern Italian food. Had a great meal. The best part was the service. I had a hard time making up my mind and wasn't up for decoding the menu options. This really great manager or maitre d explained the options and helped me choose the perfect meal. My 3rd time and definitely not my last."

"From the grilled octopus appetizer that was so tender the octopus didn't need a knife to the Capretto (goat) that was tender, moist and oh so tasty, and broccoli rabe that was actually sweet and not slightly bitter as usual, we could not have asked for a better meal. This place is fit for a special occasion or if you just want a great meal, with beautiful decorating and a great bar."

"I now recommend avoiding the top rated NYC restaurants if you want to do anything but eat. If you try to talk or to listen to anyone else talk you have to be under 30 and so excited about being at a hip place that you don't care about what anyone is saying. If you care about food and companionship go to any of the zillion other excellent NY joints that may not be toptop rated but are still scrumptious and you can actually enjoy your evening. Unless you get off on all that noise and don't mind losing your hearing. And your mind."

"Wanted to try this restaurant for a long time. The food was very, very good, although I'm not sure it was necessarily worth what we paid. The total given above did not include any alcoholic beverages. Never-the-less, it was certainly a pleasurable experience! The service was very good with our waiter John being attentive but not annoyingly so. Nice location in Chelsea. I'd go again to try some other menu items."

"The food was executed relatively well on the technical side, for the most part! Textures were consistently good. Seasoning on some dishes was a bit off. There was a broccoli rabe element (with I want to say the braised goat dish). The rabe was vibrant green but also over seasoned and somehow still very bitter and astringent. The spaghetti with tomato and basil was the clear winner of the evening. Great acidity and great texture.
The panna cotta dessert was cloyingly sweet. The only thing that cut through was the delicious tuille, but I could barely get through half the bowl. Both ice creams were all base and no flavor. The caramel ice cream was almost straight vanilla.
The service was terrible for the price point. Cocktail order was taken quickly but wine was never offered with the meal or a second cocktail round or anything. (easy way to bump up an extra 38 bucks on the bill considering the overpriced cocktails.)
The tasting menu has options for both dessert and entree. The waiter never asked for options and assumed our selections for both courses. It wasn't until just before the entree's came from the kitchen that we realized.
The bill was dropped on the table while we were literally spooning dessert into our mouths. The restaurant was not full, so no one was looking for a turn. The wait staff had at least 2 chances to up our check total by about 70 bucks considering an extra round of wine or spirit and an amaro or the likes.
Overall, it was a good experience, but mainly for the company and the amazing setting. It's tough to justify that much coin for the overall experience these days considering the high number of competition doing these every day tasks well.
Best,
Dan

"My husband and I are huge fans of Scott Conant. This trip to NYC was made complete by hitting up our favorite celebrity chefs' restaurants. We decided to do it up right for our last night. The atmosphere was simple but elegant. Our server was attentive and patient while helping us decide what to eat and drink. The wine list was impressive and a bit intimidating for me a novice wine drinker - my husband is a wine snob and was in his glory. We had the warm asparagus soup which was refreshingly delicious. My husband ordered the spaghetti, initially I teased him for ordering such a basic dish, however it turned out to be outstanding and I was jealous of his meal. I had the halibut with braised brussels sprouts, the fish was cooked perfectly and the brussels sprouts were a revelation. We splurged for dessert ordering the expresso budino and the olive oil cake, both were an absolute delightful. We left satisfied and decided the next time we were in NYC we would definitely come back. We have since told all our family and friends how wonderful the restaurant is and recommended they try it out on their trips."
