    What a great treat to have some true Scandinavia flavors. I come to Aquavit every time I am in NYC and that is about once every year or so my first time was in 2006. The current chef has taken the menu to new levels. It was great before and its even better now. We did the four course tasting menu which was really good and I loved being able to choose our courses. The Aquavit is also amazing! Try the espresso can't go wrong. The staff seem pretty new. It is worth going to the restaurant just for the ambiance as the decor is really cool. I just can't say enough about this place and feel like it is a hidden gem in NYC.

    For the money, you can have better meals The herring starters and the vodka assortment were great, and so were the drinks in the bar. However, service was mediocre and the main courses failed to live up to the standards you would expect in this price range. My waitress failed to realize that a Carbernet Franc might have a sulphur precipitate and promptly poured my glass to the last drops, ruining the wine. The Beef Rydberg was barely acceptable; onions were over-cooked and the meat was not impressive. For a $$$ dinner, you can do better.

    One of my favorite restaurants in NYC. Marcus Samuelsson is amazing, and this restaurant does not disappoint. Highly recommend the Arctic Circle for dessert: light, refreshing, and not too sweet.

    Delicious meal Greatly enjoyed the Restaurant Week lunch menu at Aquavit yesterday. I thought the artichoke soup and salmon entree were sublime, full of rich flavor with no off notes. The potato and smoked shrimp brandade (mashed potatoes) served with the salmon was incredible. The only food flaw was the spice cake, which was very dry. However, the orange sobet on the plate was an explosion of delicious flavor. One more criticism was the long wait, way past our reservation time. On the other hand, it was very pleasant to wait in the comfortable lounge and the staff was friendly, smart and helpful. I hope everyone in NY takes advantage of the $24.70 three-course Restaurant Week lunches around town. Like a fire sale on the finest food in the world.
