Atera Ratings and Reviews

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.

Outstanding dining experience and service! The chef Ronny Emborg is brilliant creating innovative food combinations! Caviar, foie gras, black truffles, oyster, lobster, no exquisite ingredient is spared, and they're all surprising and delicious!

Wonderful experience. Service was outstanding - very attentive and kind and accommodating. Good selection of wines. And of course the food, it was delicious. Especially enjoyed the mackerel dish, the lobster tail dish and the dry aged beef. Good choice of teas too. Overall, a pleasant and enjoyable evening.

My husband and I met friends for dinner at Atera this past Friday and all of us were thrilled with the choice. Our friend said it was the best meal he'd had in a long time. Couples are seated around the counter facing the open kitchen, but because we were a foursome we had a lovely table to ourselves which made it easier for us to converse. The table was raised a bit so we still had a view of the kitchen, and the chairs were very comfortable. The chefs came over to present each course so we didn't miss that experience or interaction. We're no strangers to this dining format but we have to say that Atera is truly among the very best. There were 18 small courses, some no more than a single bite, so while it sounds like a lot of food we were satisfied without feeling overstuffed. The dishes were creatively plated and totally scrumptious. Rather than get the wine pairing we ordered wine from their excellent and extensive wine list that complemented the food well. There was not a single bite we did not enjoy and I even saw my husband eat and enjoy food he normally does not prefer to order. One of their courses is housemade bread that was simply perfect. I'm not a great fan of squab, but their version was exceptional. I won't catalog the entire menu but among my favorite dishes were the "waffle", the caviar served with pistachio ice cream and India Fine Ale foam. (I dislike beer and adored that combination. Unorthodox? Oh yeah. Amazing flavor? Yes, yes, yes.), oyster, lobster, summer vegetables, squab, beef and rhubarb chocolate popsicle. Service was flawless and charming. The room is simple and elegant without being too austere. The price is wholly justified for the quality. If you have not had the chance to dine here, it's time to seize the opportunity. Very highly recommended!!

A amazing dining experience that is difficult to describe. Great service, great atmosphere and amazing food worthy of the 2 Michelin stars. Well worth a detour and a must for foodies.

simply a fabulous experience, from the food through the wine pairings and the service. The non alcoholic cocktails were over the top. Perfect amount of food on each dish, and one left not feeling stuffed despite 18 courses
