Atera Ratings and Reviews
Outstanding lunch at atera! Food was delicious and creative. Non-alcoholic beverage pairings were wonderful! Service was very professional and attentive. Great to see the Chef working and presenting the dishes. 18 courses that were each individually superb. Already made my next lunch reservation at atera.
Amazing food, presentation, service and staff. Mains in particular were terrific, as well as the temperance pairings, which were an absolute treat from beginning to finish. Laid back atmosphere and no dress code are also a plus for place like this in my books - though most people dining around me did seem more dressed for the occasion, I felt just as welcomed walking in with a generic Nike tee, and some jeans.
Lovely place, all in all - zero complaints.
Our first trip to New York from Sydney and we were recommended by friends to try Atera. It's intimate size (16 seats only) and view of the kitchen made it an outstanding event not just a fine dining dinner. Watching the kitchen work with machine like efficiency was a true delight. Ninjas appearing and removing plates with precision. The staff were amazing and happy to talk to us as we asked about all the interesting things happening around us. The food was something truly next level and we enjoyed an exciting series of courses with matching wines. I would like to thank Chef Ronny, Jimmy (good to see an australian making it big in NY), Amit (Chestnut), Kevin, Alec, Evan (Sommelier for us), Mike (Ninja 1), Yumi (Ninja 2), Justin and Matthew. Thank you for making our first trip to NY one to remember.
Second visit after a long break. Creative dishes following a great sequence and flow. Initially a bit rushed serving, but overall nice pace. Wine pairing was fantastic. Very New York City vibe, which makes this place a wonderful place to entertain a guest from abroad. Highly recommended.
An excellent concept. You sit on high chairs facing the kitchen. It's a pleasure to observe how all the 20 small plates comprising the menu are created. The ingredients are of the highest quality and the chef's creativity is impressive. Service is friendly and professional. Dinner with a view - but not in the traditional sense.
Three dishes I would call outstanding, the rest were good/ok. Disliked the "temperance" non alcoholic pairings couldn't drink most of them at all and was not the only one. Husband had wine pairing they were very good. Hate tall stools but you need them to see the kitchen, which was amazingly organized and very fun to watch! Staff was great, everyone works hard there and cares what they are doing you can tell. Don't like there is no place to go before hand, they should of kept the lounge area and this knocked off points for us too. My husband enjoyed his tasting menu more than I did.
This was our first time experiencing Nordin/Scandinavian cuisine and I believe I experienced its best representation outside of its respective country at Atera. I needed a couple days to 'digest' this experience, and I enjoyed it very much.
First off, the service was incredible and you shouldn't feel any reservations about the inclusive service fee. We received small napkin holders for our cell phones and a napkin for my camera; I've only experienced this at high-end restaurants in Japan and never in America. Servers were patient, somms were friendly and educational, and the chefs were so friendly and presented each dish with a warm smile on their face. We were celebrating an anniversary and received warm congratulations from the chefs and servers and a complimentary black tea cake, which was amazing and incredibly delicious!
Having no background with this type of cuisine I had no expectations, but I was blown away. I think the cooking highlights particular ingredients with a focus on seafood and harmony between fresh vegetables with some richness from a puree, reduction, or the protein. I wish I could have had a dialectic with the executive chef about the cuisine, but he had a very austere and focused demeanor.
Each ingredient was of the highest quality; the caviar from Israel in particular is way better than at Brooklyn Fare (I think). It's more balanced in flavor and has a creamier and fuller body with each egg. As for the food itself, it's very light and doesn't leave you with palate fatigue or overwhelming fat usage; you leave the restaurant feeling satisfied and not exhausted from many cooking fats. Each dish was extremely thoughtful and balanced in flavor and composition; I particularly loved the balance between a particular protein and some vegetable to contrast it. Even the use of purees and broths was well thought out and well executed.
Overall, while not urgent on my NY restaurant list, I'm a fan of Atera and would return without reservation.
My friend and I couldn't get a table at Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare and came across Atera. We thought we will give it a try since it's a similar concept of dining around the kitchen. The food was amazing! We really enjoyed watching the chefs putting everything together and making magic happen on every single plates. Highly recommended
About 5 of the 18 courses were memorable, about 5 were great and the rest are forgotten by now. $225 per persone before wine, taxes and tip. It's fair to say you spend around $900 per couple at the end of the night. It was good, very good...just not $900 good.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here, every member of the staff congratulated us which was a nice gesture. The attention and service is flawless.
I loved the experience, the amazing attention on little details and the food! A beautiful sensory experience. I wish people had interact more with each other since the program itself has a special dynamic but i guess it depends on the group of people of each day. The chefs were very nice and explained the dish with passion. The place very private and cozy. Thank you!! Clara and Helen from Argentina.
The tasting menu is an exceptional experience! Foodies, and others as well, will be absolutely delighted. Sitting at the counter and watching the kitchen team(!) is a delightful experience.
The music at times can be very eclectic and don't forget to bring your credit card....
We will be back!
As you walk into the restaurant your welcomed into the space with its beautiful decor and open kitchen.
The serving of dishes is like watching a beautifully choreographed symphony where each items hits a beautiful note.
Food was incredible
The chef and staff provide amazing dining experience. A+
Great Chef's Table Dining Experience
This was the perfect dinner, maybe the best we ever had. The food is simply perfect, service is exemplary, and the wine pairing as well as the temperance pairing are so well chosen! This will definitely be a restaurant to return to whenever we are in New York. The only thing I don't understand is why this gem of a restaurant has not yet received its third Michelin star.
Wonderful time at Atera. Menu was refreshing and incorporated seasonal flavours. A particular favourite is a Norwegian salmon with radish and ikura. A close second is the take on sweetbread with asparagus and umami packed mushroom jus. Atera was accommodating to a guest who had dietary restrictions. Service was attentive but not overbearing. The selection of teas (we had spring fortune from Taiwan) and the tea service was outstanding.
If I had to be picky, the music was a bit loud at times, other than that a very lovely evening out.
