Atera Ratings and Reviews
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.
Excellent and solid 2-star dining. Several of the dishes were very well executed, the aebleskiver starter with beet, and the apple and shaved foie gras was accompaned by an excellent wine pairing, where the aroma was on point. Dry aged duck with Togni cabernet was also a very well executed wine pairing. All in all a very enjoyable dinner, and I can heartily recomment the higher-end wine pairing.
A must taste in nyc. The food the fusion the music the stealth ninja staff. Relaxed but everything taken care of to precision including what your phone sits on so you are ready to take photos of the delights the young chefs place in front of you. The wine list - the up most to die for - such a selection let Evan decide for you. But bring deep pockets - worth every thousand dollars. We go every season cause the menu changes. Mike and Matt are supurb. Thank you for such a treat!
Incredible. I have dined at La Bernadine, Jean Georges, Masa, and several Michelin 1 or 2 star restaurants like Aquavit, Bouley, etc., but Atera, to be honest, wins out among these restaurants. I don't really understand why it has only 2 stars; from my view, it should definitely be a seven-star restaurant (Michelin 3 ⭐️ and NY Times 4 ⭐️). I have also dined at Alinea in Chicago, which is so-called best restaurant in the U.S., but I think Atera is the best molecular gastronomy restaurant.
Truly wonderful experience! The temperance pairing is definitely worthwhile, it is very thought out, creative and interesting. One of the best tasting menus. A lot of very creative bites/courses. The citrus dessert was exceptional as were many of the savory courses. Wonderful environment, and service.
The tasting menu is outstanding. The only dish that didn't blow my mind was the quail eggs with cream cheese, kind of boring, but everything g else was just incredible. Everything is assembled in from of you, the service is impeccable, the wine list excellent (I went with an amazing 2007 Cedric Bouchard Blanc de Blancs and then went for a glass of an ok Napa Cab and a glass of outstanding Sauternes). About 16 courses, create a fantastic journey of perfectly assembled flavors, textures and tenperatures that must together amazingly. Much more interesting and vibrant cusine than the various Per Se and Le Bernardin. I venture to say, except for the view it's worth a third star, I compare it to Meadowhood in Napa. All in all one of the best tasting menus in the city. I hope they will keep it up.
As an Australian on holidays we wanted a special meal to remember, after doing our research Atera did not disappoint . The four of us were seated on the only table in the restaurant which was perfect . From the moment we entered the restaurant until the time we left our experience was outstanding.There was not one thing that we could fault. Each course was explained in detail as well as the accompanying wine . The "icing on the cake" was that the chef was a Melbourne boy.
We would recommend Atera for foodies and wine lovers who like to indulge in something special.
Great service & great alcoholic beverages. Food however lackluster in the flavor dept. Did not meet our expectations for such high end dining. To many cold plates for this time of year. & most dishes just not that pleasing to the palate. It wasn't just me, my entire party of 5 felt that way. Positive desserts were extremely tasty and the culinary artistry demonstrated in presentation of dishes was outstanding. Would I ever go back sadly no. Also ive had 8 course meals that were more filli ng, by the time I arrived home I was hungry again. Ended up eating a P&J.
This is my new favorite place to eat. The service was impeccable and the food was even more so. Most notable was their catering to my no finned-fish request and the temperance pairing. The temperance pairing was an incredibly unique feature and just as good if not (dare I say it??) better than an alcoholic pairing. My partner had a salmon dish that he said was the best salmon he had ever tasted. I can't wait to come again!
Went to Atera recently - was INCREDIBLE. Every course, the service. Loved the wine and temperance pairing. Also got a really interesting caffeine free tea. They print out menus for you to take home. So incredible!!!! Staff was lovely, service was immaculate, and didn't feel stuffy in the slightest. Would defintelh return.
