Erminia Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
Yes, it is a very romantic restaurant! For some that alone might be enough, but even if romance is not on your mine Erimina is worth. The visit. The food was expensive but worth the price. Excellent choices and well prepared. The service was attentive without hovering. They were friendly and informative and made the dining experience very pleasurable. Oh, and did I say it was romantic!
Very cozy and romantic. The entire restaurant has only 12 tables, all candlelit, for a very intimate experience. The service was excellent, the staff very attentive. Although the menu is a bit limited, the food was excellent. Gnocchi in a white truffle sauce....amazing!
This is a charming restaurant with excellent food, attentive service and moderate noise level. We especially liked the seared duck and pear salad specials and look forward to returning soon. Our out of town cousins loved it.
This is a remarkable restaurant hidden in the UES. The dining room is small. The service was excellent and all three courses were just outstanding. The setting is cozy and rustic with candles on each table and subdued lighting overall. It is a perfect couples spot. We felt we were in Italy or Spain. Erminia is delightful.
We went here for my boyfriend's birthday for the 2nd year and were again very impressed. The restaurant is intimate and we got the feeling that we were in Italy rather than NYC. The servers were very friendly and gave us amazing recommendations. Food was delicious, we've already been spreading the words to friends about this hidden gem. Will definitely be back!
Great little cozy spot out of the way on the UES. Restaurant is tiny, but has great ambiance and outstanding service. Perfect for a romantic dinner. The food is very good and reasonably priced. They did make one mistake on our order, but corrected it swiftly when pointed out to them with no fuss. I would highly recommend.
Located on Manhattan's Tony East Side, Ermina is worth seeking out. The restaurant is small so consider reservations a must. The service is crisp, the food is good, the room is subdued and is rightly called one of Manhattan's premier romantic restaurants. The wine list is pricey, but it is after all the upper East Side of Manhattan. Not particularly easy to get to via public transportation from the West Side but so worthy of your dining dollar.
This was the perfect place to meet with an old friend i hadn't seen for 2 years. The right mixture of busy and quiet - we could talk. Very good service and the specials were incredibly fresh and delectable - fish and seasonable vegetables.
I can see why Erminia was voted the most romantic restaurant in NYC. The ambiance was very quant and the atmosphere was quiet enough to hold a conversation.
The food was excellent as was the service.
I would definitely go back there again.
The service was wonderful! The staff was attentive and friendly, very available due to the size of the restaurant and constantly engaged. They offered superb recommendations around both the wine menu and the food menu. Could not recommend more for a traditional Italian feel on a romantic night, or really any night you want amazing Italian.
Really cozy place, food is fantastic with a great wine list
The staff is really great as well. I have come to Erminas a few times for business meetings as well as for a romantic anniversary with my wife you will not be disapointed
