·Dined 3 days ago

Food was delicious as always. Three of us had the salmon, the fourth had the pumpkin ravioli that he couldn't stop raving over. Same for his salad with pears and bacon. This is our "go to" theater district restaurant. Very surprised it was so crowded and noisy for a post-matinee dinner. Felt more like a Saturday pre-theater. Sunday usually has a nice, laid back vibe, conducive to catching up with friends and discussing the play. We had seen the 3 hour long, The Present (right across the street!) , allowing us to stay long enough for the tables to start to empty. Perhaps I should stop singing the praises of Scarlatto!

We took our granddaughter to Scarlatto after seeing a Saturday 2 Pm matinee of the revival of Cats. We had a 5;25 reservation but were early and the hostess seated us immediately. We order two appetizers for the three of us and the Calamari and fried Zucchini was enough for all. I am not a Salmon lover, in fact I hate salmon, but my friend Ann had Salmon with caramelized onion on n a bed of Spinach which she had me try and to my shock it was wonderful. I had their homemade pumpkin Ravioli and it was just as good. my granddaughter had the Striped bass which was good but would have been great if the skin were a bit more crispy. The service was excellent and all in all a great play and a really good meal at Scarlatto.

I realized upon entering that I had been to Scarlatto once before. Lovely setting with great food, and a great price point. I would absolutely return for future get-togethers. The one disappointment that I had this go around is that I specifically requested a table good for people watching since it was to celebrate the birthdays of two people in the party. They gave us the very rear corner table next to the kitchen. Better luck next time!

It is unremarkable Italian pre-theater. Maybe we should not have ordered off the menu and stuck with the pre-theatre menu. It was ok, the room was very cold and the food did not arrive very hot and got cold very quickly. It's just ok, if you want something to eat prior to the theater, but I would not go back.

Most of the staff here was incredible. The gentleman who greeted me at the he door was kind and efficient. The waiter I had was awful. He spent most of his time standing at the front of the restaurant doing nothing. He only came to take my order, to try to remove my food while I was still waiting, to deliver my check, and to make change. The only time he was in any hurry was to try to take the tip away. He never once asked if I wanted another drink or a refill of water or how my food was. There was a waiter who was taking care of a different table who was incredible and took care of me. He was awesome, attentive and when the first waiter took my plate with food still on it, he noticed and took the plate back from him and delivered it to my table.

I had the lasagne and it was delicious! Just incredible.

·Dined on 7 January 2017

Unfortunately, our reservation for 7 was squeezed into an uncomfortable table for 6 in the back of the restaurant where we were continually bumped into by waiters and busboys. Certainly not the fault of the servers but the fault of the management for placing us there. Some of the food was quite tasty, but the halibut special that two of our diners ordered was dry and overcooked as was the chicken scarpierllo. The branzino was good, as was the gnocci but our evening was just not enjoyable due to being overcrowded, banged into and some below par entrees. I would not return.

Enjoyed a pre-theater dinner here before seeing "Falsettos" at the nearby Walter Kerr Theater. Great service, drink order / three courses out in timely fashion, plenty of time to dine and relax before heading to show. My second dine here, both times were great. If time permits, check out the Swarovski crystal jewelry-maker at the outdoor market (at 46th/8th ave, 1 block from Scarlatto); My friend got a lovely handmade necklace before the show. The artisan is usually on site, and is a gem herself!

My only complaint about Scarlattos is that the price they state online for the Prefix meal doesn't stipulate before 4PM. They state $18.95 and when the menu arrived it was $29.95. Our reservations were for 4:30. I would have made the reservation for before 4PM had I known.

·Dined on 4 January 2017

My friends and I came to Scarlatto's after a Wednesday matinee, and overall were very pleased with the meal. The service was perfect, and most of the food options were very good. The mussels appetizer was terrific, one of my friends had the asparagus soup and didn't like it very much. Two of us ordered the veal and found the slices too thin, not appetizing looking, and there were no vegetables on the plate. The salmon dinner was excellent however, and came with vegetables...so we shared. Our 4th friend ordered the gnocchi and it was awful, pasty and bland so she sent it back and it didn't come until we were almost ready for dessert but it was very good so she took it home. The pannecotta dessert was yummy, however! Just be careful what you order and that it's freshly made.

Have been to Scarlotto's restaurant a few times now. Everytime it has been very good. Whether it is a small crowd or a party of 14,the service is up to par. The menu is on the smaller side, which I appreciate because anything you choose will be delicious. Try to order the potato Gnocchi for just a taste to share, or a meal. This dish is very light and fluffy compared to other Italian restaurants! Yum!

Food is good here, but the service is rushed (we did say, when asked, that we had theater tickets, but had plenty of time for a leisurely lunch). We ordered five dishes to share among four of us, assuming we would start with salads and appetizer. However all dishes arrived simultaneously, leaving hot main courses to chill on the table while we attempted to distribute portions on very undersized plates. Have had good experiences here in past years, so this was disappointing.

·Dined on 3 January 2017

My wife and I went to Scarlatto for a pre-theatre dinner. As we arrived we asked the hostess if we would be able to finish our dinner in time for the show. She stated that it would be no problem. We arrived approx. 1 1/3 hours before the theatre performance ( the theatre was right around the corner). We had made reservations on Open Table well in advance since we were from out-of-town and weren't sure how busy this restaurant would be. When we arrived, the hostess told us it would be a few minutes before we could be seated. As we were standing there, three other couples who did not have reservations (they asked and we heard) were seated before us. When we finally got seated we were in the same vicinity of these other couples who had already received their drinks. The waitress came in due time and we ordered our dinner selecting the fixed- price menu. The drinks and salads came within a reasonable time. The other couples had already finished with their salads. We waited and waited for our main course. We kept asking the waitress where the entrée was and she said it would be a few more minutes. The other couples around us who arrived after we did got their checks and began leaving. About 15 min before we had to be at the theatre, we decided we couldn't wait any longer and asked for the check (we had only consumed our salads up till then). Still even then the check didn't come. We decide to leave the restaurant entirely and met the waitress in the hall with our check which we paid in cash (the bill was pro-rated for consuming 1/3 of our dinner). In the stairway, she apologized for the problems saying that they had new kitchen help and that other guests had problems with their orders also. She said she was totally embarrassed and apologized repeatedly but the damage was done. We marched out of the restaurant hungry and had to wait until after the theatre to get something to eat. Overall, dining at Scarlatto was upsetting and a real turnoff. Never again!

·Dined on 1 January 2017

I wouldn't recommend this place to my friends or family and don't ever plan on going back. They were either short staffed or do not train employees well because the service was not great. In addition, apparently they will not add anything to a salad (i.e. grilled chicken, which is on the menu so they definitely had available). Finally, we requested a drink that was not brought to us until we requested that it be cancelled, which was well after we were done eating and therefore did not want it anymore, and then we were still charged for it - rather than correcting the bill, the waiter told us to take it out of his tip. All of these made for a very strange experience, and the food did not make up for the service.

I was hosting a group of friends whom I haven't seen for over 30 years. Picked this restaurant because it was right next to their hotel and had opening for a large party of 9 for dinner at the time of booking. It was a great experience, better than I expected given it is at the center of the theater district. The place was cozy and comfortable, the food was fresh and flavorful, the service was attentive and accommodating. We stayed longer to talk after the bill came in, didn't feel rushed. Everyone was happy and had a great time.
