Atera Ratings and Reviews
Great service & great alcoholic beverage ...
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.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. Great food, amazing service, and no pretension: They played George Michael during our meal. The seating is mostly a U-shaped bar around an open kitchen so parties of more than 2 may struggle to have conversations, but there is a larger table in the corner.

Food and ambience at Atera were amazing. We loved every bite and the food, while exquisite is not pretentious, nor is the setting. Service was impeccable and also laid back and fun - a pleasant surprise that reminded us of other favorite restaurants where you can be yourself and enjoy the experience without it being uptight. Wines pairings were excellent (we chose prestige pairings) so I am sure wine list is also great but we did not look at it in any detail. I would highly recommend Atera to anyone who likes great food that is meticulously prepared and then presented on its own merits by a staff that seemed to truly love what they did and we loved the end result. One note - there are 2 seatings and really no place to wait if you arrive early for your reservation so don't be late, but don't arrive too early either.

My friends and I LOVED this restaurant! The food is phenomenal. Only 1 dish out of 18 that I wasn't crazy about (but my friends liked it a lot). The service was perfectly timed and it didn't seem like we were there the 3 hours that we were. I particularly loved the beer foam, the lobster bisque, the toasted hay with oro blanco and pomegranate (my favorite). Even the glass of wine they suggested was excellent. The only complaint I have are the seats. I didn't mind sitting at a bar setup but the barstool seats were very uncomfortable. I have long legs and nowhere to put them. There is a circular piece as part of the stool under the seat but to put my legs back and under didn't work at all. I thought it was only me as I kept fidgeting and trying to get comfortable but my one friend mentioned it to me later on when she got home. She had come up from Virginia just to go there. Most reviewers have given Atera 5 stars and so do I and they definitely deserve the 2 stars that Michelin has given it.

An exquisite dining experience, with food as artfully presented as it was delicious. The interaction with the staff and chefs was phenomenal. They displayed incredible attention to detail while remaining relatable and fun. I highly recommend the temperance pairing for creative and delicious alternatives to wine/cocktails.

Absolutely astonishing. We are french from Paris and then regular customer of gastronomic restaurants all over the place. This restaurant breaks the traditional gastronomic codes and is still a very high level restaurant. High end sophisticated food, perfectly mixed ingredients at tastes, and thanks, not too much. It is as well a very rock'n'roll scene and experience, and a real ballet of service and chef's hat. A real great experience.
It was a special day; 30th birthday of my wife. Great night!

Atera is the best restaurant in the Globe for us. From service to food, everything is outstanding!
This is our second visit and we felt special that all the staff remembered about us. This was unique given that our first visit was in December 2015!

This has been the worst Michelin star restaurant I have even been too. The food portions are far too small for the price they charge. You barely get to enjoy the taste before it's done. The food also lacked creativity. One course called "California olives" was a single piece of grape in olive oil. Some of the courses were very good but then again too small for the money I am paying. I know that fine dining places usually serve small portions but this was even smaller than those and lacked creativity. I went here for my birthday and regret it. With that kind of money you are better off going to a 3 Michelin star restaurant (per se, 11 Madison Ave being my fav) or a nice holiday.

We visit NYC from London for three weeks every year and Atera is always at the top of our list for an exceptional gastronomic experience. Every meal has been memorable and the combination of exquisite food and superb service cannot be surpassed.

Went to Atera for my birthday. It was absolutely amazing from start to finish. The food was incredible. Every course was delicious with little surprises along the way. Staff were professional and personable. The intimate seating around the open kitchen worked perfectly. The music soundtrack added a fun, lighthearted touch.
We've been fortunate enough to eat in some very good restaurants all around the world and Atera is at the very top of the list.

Incredible experience!! The food was very well prepared and displayed, the wine pairing was adventurous with some very good wines. This was our third find dining experience on this trip that included Eleven Madison Park, I thought the food flavors were better here. Don't arrive early, they did recommend a bar to get a drink about 2 blocks away but we really didn't have enough time to walk there and back and enjoy a drink.

Excellent. Atera exceeded our expectations. Believe the hype. The level of attention to detail, the creativity, and the professionalism were outstanding. Please don't miss out on the temperance pairing or the tea progression if those even remotely pique your interest. Such a memorable experience.

Best tasting menu so far, I have been to many Michelin starred restaurants, this one is absolutely phenomenal! The chef is out-going and really humble, the presentation and execution of the dishes are incredible!
The kitchen and the entire restaurant is quite small in size but only 16 seats per seating makes the environment very cozy and capacious.

I've lived in NYC for nearly 20 years and this meal was definite one of the best that I have ever had. The amount of creativity and precision put into every dish was incredible. Also, I must say that the music played there was the best. And they brought out an extra dessert for my girlfriend's birthday.
