About Serra by Birreria

How do you say "spring" in Italian? Answer: Eataly Restaurant Fest! From March 18–31, join us at our rooftop restaurant Serra by Birreria for a special $28 two-course menu and $25 bottles of wine. Welcome in the new season with spring-infused dishes including Bruschetta di Ricotta, fresh Mozzarella di Bufala, Gnocchi di Patate, and more! Step into the Italian countryside at SERRA by Birreria, our new "greenhouse" pop-up on the roof. The restaurant will transport you from the cold streets of Manhattan to the rolling fields of Italy. Sit down at rustic tables in the shade, and share down-to-earth dishes made with simple but quality ingredients from our favorite farmers in Italy and the U.S. and served family-style, just like in the countryside.

This is a pop up restaurant on the top floor of Eataly. It was my first time here and I'm dying to head back even though I live in a different country. As always Mario Batali's food is a 'must have' if you happen to be within its proximity. If there is any one word to sum up this meal, it would be 'Raclette!'. Melted cheese is always your friend. The pasta dishes were all insanely flavourful, there isnt anything I didn't enjoy right down to my San pellegrino. But I will say it was a pricey San pellegrino. Everything overall was delicious.

We came into NYC for my 50th birthday , a girls day trip to check out Eataly.\nWe ate upstairs at BAITA, our table was ready when we arrived (had reservation's)\nWe ordered Arugula Salads which were fine, and entrees - Polenta was very good ! if you like that. My friend did enjoy the lasagne. The dumpling pasta was tasty but nothing to rave about and just a few bites..very small portion. If very hungry and going with men, this is not a place to expect large portions at all. Drinks were good.\nPlace is fun, very crowded and loud because of the bar. It was a beautiful February day 65 degrees so they opened the retractable roof which was a treat ! Overall nice but would not frequent for a delicious Italian meal.

Late afternoon lunch on a beautiful sunny February day. The place was full of good energy, pleasant people, staff, and delicious food and wine. All around a great spot, we were served quickly but not rushed out. Vibrant neighborhood and this spot was great for all ages. Bar scene was happening and we were a family table. Everyone co-existed beautifully. Happy place.

I could not believe the lack of respect the wait staff had for me and my guests. Not only did they repeated ignore us and 'forget' we checked in at the hostess stand downstairs AND upstairs, but they also suggested we 'go downstairs' if we only wanted dessert and drinks. Meanwhile, our reservation was at 9pm and the sitdown portion of the restaurant was emptying - we were by no means taking up a table from someone who would be ordering a full course meal. We were also served the wrong wine. Terrible experience for such a promising atmosphere and restaurant concept.

We ordered our food (entrees only) and literally within 3 minutes the food appeared. It was clear that they had meals prepared in the kitchen so that they could just bring them out when someone ordered them. We were out for a date and wanted to enjoy the ambiance and each other's company and it was unfortunate that our whole meal was over in about 30 minutes. Food was good but not great. My $34 truffle pasta was not worth the price and the portion was very small.

This restaurant is ill conceived and poorly executed, from the hallway past the bins to the elevators, to the dead ficus benjamina, fern bar and pillars partly strapped with fake fur passing as decor, to the narrow polenta-based menu which had nothing any of our party of 3 wanted to eat at Sunday brunch. Despite the fact that the place was less than half full, the waitress was unbelievably slow and blissfully unconcerned about us - we ordered cappuccinos that never arrived and when we said we were leaving without ordering, she giggled and grinned and said 'alright'. I can't comment on the food as we gave up before eating anything but I did notice the plates going back to the kitchen had a lot of food on them. I have no hesitation in saying avoid this restaurant at all costs.

Good food, small portions, pretty expensive. We enjoyed our cocktails, one of which had gin and St. Germain, the other had whiskey. I would stay away from the polenta -- the portions are laughably small (you get 2 small cuts of polenta, not a bowlful). The fried mushrooms, fried cheese and mushroom salad were all tasty. The best was probably the spinach and potato dumplings -- pillowy soft. Dessert was OK -- we got the budino and the caramel pudding, which was topped with overcooked, overly crunchy crumble.

The places is gorgeous and EATALY speaks for itself. However our server was bad at communicating. After wine by the glass, we ended up ordering $16 appetizers each thinking they were entrees. Only after we received them and found tiny portions, did the waiter mention they were apps and didn't apologize but asked if we wanted more food! We were there for dinner/ 6.30PM on Wed 2/15.

Went here for a Valentine's pre fixe meal that ran me $85 per person. The portions were EXTREMELY small, but the wine pairings made it worth it. I'd be more satisfied if when I saw my statement I didn't notice that the server had stolen/over tipped himself more than I had given by $20. Had to file a dispute with my card due to this. Very poor business practice.

In NYC for our 25th Anniversary and wanted to experience Eataly by having a unique meal. They had a specialty bourbon cocktail with brandied cherries that was to die for and we had the nicest server. She was great!! Started out with cheese and charcuterie platters. Cheese platter was amazing, charcuterie was ok. They really need to add mustards and figs to the platters to compliment as they do downstairs in Eataly and they would be more than worth it. The special Prime rib polenta was AMAZING and perfect comfort food for a cold, rainy winter night in NYC. Definitely a fun place with a unique menu.

We went to Baita during the recent massive snow storm and the ski lodge ambiance was perfect for a cold and snowy day. The Alps-themed menu was the ultimate in comfort food, with absolutely delicious raclette and entrée choices like stewed pork and roast chicken. There's also a special winter cocktail menu that went great with the meal. \n\nJust a couple of things to note - even with the heat lamps it can get a bit chilly, particularly on days when it's less crowded as when we were there. I also know that noise can be a bit of a problem in this space, but with the current festive décor it's a bit more of a party atmosphere anyway.

Tried Baira out while friends were in town. We originally made the reservation because online it said it was still restaurant week. When we got there it wasn't but the food was still good. The arugula salad was overpriced considering it was literally just the lettuce and some parmesan but everyone loved the special they had that day. The spot is great! Very bright and open. Overall it was a very nice experience and we would definitely go again!

Someone with a managerial interest in Sabbia should really take a closer look. Hard to believe with such a beautiful location that the restaurant could be this bad on several levels. First, the service was rude and rushed (this could be just my experience and other waiters not so bad), second, the food was disappointing (started with the shrimp which were way overcooked and tough, and then had the steak salad which was salty and tough) any my friend did not fare any better. Wine selection not great, and the waiter could not explain the differences between two of the wines I asked about. Lastly, when my wine came the glass was dirty and when I asked for a switch he seemed annoyed - no apology whatsoever. Just awful. Shame, shame.

We loved Baita at La Birreria! We had an 8:15 reservation and had to wait a couple minutes but enjoyed hanging out at the bar and getting one of their unique cocktails. The ambiance was so incredible and a toasty getaway from the chilly NYC winter. My boyfriend and I aren't big foodies so we weren't familiar with a lot of the items on the menu. Our waitress was amazing and walked us through the entire thing! The food was upscale but not so much that it was unrecognizable or stuffy. We had a meat tasting and the filet mignon appetizers and for the meal, my boyfriend got the lasagna and I got the pork shoulder. We split each and both were absolutely wonderful!! Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant for a nice night out in the city. Great ambiance, food, prices, and experience!

I was somewhat disappointed by Baita given the dinning choices on the main floor more satisfactory. I ordered slow roasted duck, to my surprise was a bit lukewarm. My husband ordered the Raclette, but the cheese hardened throughout dinner. It's meant to be served 'gooey and hot' throughout your meal. They should find an alternative way to serve the cheese to maintain how it is originally served . The service was great, very efficient. Bread and olive oil were my favorite. You're in Eataly, how can it not be.

Beautiful as the ambience was, this was a huge culinary disappointment. Everything was fine at best (the duck) or utterly tasteless at worst (the strangolapreti). Two cocktails ordered - both very watered down. The service was genial. When we asked for a plain pasta with cheese for our 6 year old, it was easily accommodated. But when she got it there were literally about 10 pieces of plain pasta - to which we were expected to pay the full price of $16. We politely said that it was ridiculous and were kindly brought another bowl of ten. My daughter ate it in no time and was left wanting more, but we didn't want to keep playing this game all night. It's one thing if this was some complex pasta with truffles, but plain pasta? C'mon, guys. And the adult orders were pretty skimpy as well. (We are New Yorkers, so we are not expecting TGIFriday heaping portions.) The pop-up theme is a clever idea, but it is little more than a Potemkin village hiding the emptiness behind, an emptiness you will feel in both your stomach and your wallet. I am used to dropping $150 for a family of three dinner, but not at this quality. There can be no other explanation than it is simply a tourist trap. The evening was a huge disappointment and I regretted that of all the excellent restaurants in NYC, I chose such a misfire, especially for our Xmas Eve dinner.

I've been to eataly a number of times, and also to the rooftop restaurant which changes from time to time. This is the first time I was really disappointed. The decor was less than impressive, the food was just ok (lacked seasoning and flavor...wouldn't order what I ordered again), portions were small, and I practically had to do a handstand to get our waitress's attention. She was friendly enough, just never bothered to look our way, and never asked how our food was (maybe she knew). I realize this is a tourist attraction, but the rest of eataly is so fun and delicious (albeit super crowded), I expected a little more. Would not bother going back, except maybe for a drink during daylight hours....because there wasn't much of a view at night. I will go back to eataly, though...just not the rooftop restaurant.

we ordered the bread soup. The waitress brought us the soup of the day, winter squash bisque. we flagged her down and told her she had brought the wrong soup. She said she would comp it if we wanted to eat it. We told her know we did not like the soup. She never offered to bring the right soup, so we just ordered our entrees. She did not offer a soup or dessert for serving us the wrong item. Service was very spotty. We love this place and Eataly but the service was not up to par this time.

Very disappointed. First of all I tried getting a dinner reservation a week in advanced and they could only offer me 4:30 PM. Well let me tell you, we were there for about N hour and half and 50% of the tables were empty. Would have been better to eat dinner at a later time not 4:30. Food was just ok, very small portions, pricy and not friendly to altering menu options to accommodate dietary restrictions. So let me tell you what my kids wanted to do after dinner on the way to the hotel, stop for a couple slices of pizza. This place is a tourist trap, don't go.

I expected views of the city being this is a rooftop. The area was sunken down so there really is no view. Also .. I don't recommend going in August. It was about 95 degrees up there and the fans did very little to cool us down. We wound up only doing a drink and appetizer up there and then went downstairs/inside for the meal and luckily they were able to accommodate us without a reservation.

So this restaurant is in the flatiron. You need to walk through Eatily to get to it. Just enter in to what looks like a spawling deli and go to the back left. You will see a check in for Baita and then you take the elevator up. This is a rooftop setting that they have decked out seasonally. It is an italian menu but with a good mix of things so if you don't want pasta, you can avoid it. I had the polenta with pumpkin. It was surprisingly light. I also had the most ridiculously small appetizer of beets roasted. That was a joke. So all in all, it was fine but I would not go back again.

We go to Eatily once a year around Christmas for dinner and were excited to get in at Baita. The two men on the first floor were friendly, however the girls up on the 14th floor, not so much. They weren't rude, but very stand-offish and didn't seem to want to be there. However, Monique C. and the gentleman taking our plates and giving us water were FANTASTIC! Monique was such an amazing waitress, very friendly and knowledgeable. We never felt rushed or stupid for asking questions. The food...OUTSTANDING! From the appetizers to the main dishes right down to the dessert and coffee. The portion sizes were just right, the food cooked to perfection. My friend and I left very fat and happy! This is easily our new favorite place to eat over at Eatily and we are planning to come back this spring/summer to see the menu change. If I had more than two thumbs, I would use all of them to describe this experience. Bravo, Baita!

asked for a window table in reservation. Instead we were seated in the center between loud groups of drunk people. tables so close the girl's hair behind me hit me on the head every time she flipped it. appetizers came out immediately and were terrible as was the cold bread they practically threw at us (even though it was wrapped in brown paper..what is the point if not warm?). Entrees came out 2 minutes after the appetizers were served. Couldn't we even have the illusion that the food was made to order? All 4 entrees were terrible..like they had been pre-made and sitting out all day waiting for someone to order them. also the food was incredibly salty. no one took more than 2 bites. people were playing soccer in the middle of the restaurant and the staff just gave them dirty looks but didn't stop them. go to this place if you want to party at a hefty price but definitely not for the food. also, people were adjusting their tables around us and when we got up we were landlocked. Had to physically move tables to leave. Leaving was the best part. Finally, they advertise a view of the flatiron building.

Service was very attentive, but the food came out almost too quickly, as if they wanted to turn over the table really, really fast. But, we still enjoyed it.\n\nSo, if you do want a quick, good meal, this is your place.

One glass of wine was horribly corked, smoky and disgusting. The pasta cost $35 and was a tiny portion and not very good. The sausage and mushroom polenta was also tiny and the ingredients were not tas table. We lived in Veneto for three years and that stuff was not northern Italian. Would never go back.

Love Eataly and the whole experience. Walking through the market I found myself excited to experience Baita. \nThe roof top dining left much to be desired. The room was great the bar area had good energy, the restaurant side was quiet yet fun. Service was good and my guest and I were excited about the menu. \nUnfortunately the food was not as exciting. The salads we ordered Meh.. dull and unappetizing and our entrees was the same route, again presentation was less then appetizing and the seasoning.... meh.\nThink eating in the market would have been more fun and the food and presentation would have been better. Not high on my list.. won't eat there again. But will definitely enjoy the market and restaurants there. ** 2 stars for Baita at La Birreria ( that's generous)

Really neat seasonal restaurant located on the roofdeck of Eataly. I felt like we walked into a ski chateau in the Italian Alps, complete with a little log cabin to wait in for our table to be ready. The food was delicious, but not the best for anyone with dietary restrictions (aka gluten and dairy intolerance). Creative Italian and winter inspired cocktails, polenta is their specialty, have unique high altitude wines that go along with the theme. All around great ambience and experience.

The rooftop has been transformed to represent the alpines and after ski atmosphere. It is charming however crowded and noisy, (tables are quite close to each other). If you are looking for an energetic atmosphere with good food (polenta bar, flat bread pizza's, high altitude wine list and great selection of beers) than this is the place, we were lucky to be having lunch on a mild sunny day in November so the roof was open. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. Some tables face walls of neighboring buildings so the inside tables offer better atmosphere. If you are very lucky you can eat inside a wooden 3 sided ski hut or have drinks in the alpine Adirondack chairs. We were glad we had made reservations, the wait for walk ins was quite long.

The restaurant itself was nice, ambience was excellent. The food was very good, but portions were very small for the prices. The major problem was the service. We ordered champagne and appetizers which arrived promptly and where delicious. After our entrees were brought to the table our waitress came to ask if everything was okay before disappearing for almost 20 minutes. We wanted dessert menus, but she was nowhere to be found. We finally got the attention of another staff member, presumably a manager of some kind who was very helpful and apologetic. She got us our menus and we ordered coffee. Another 10 minutes or more passed with no service and no coffee. At this point we gave up and asked the same manager for our check. Our waitress finally made an appearance after the manager went to find her. She printed out our check. We paid for our food and left. The manager was very nice and apologetic which we really appreciated, but our disappearing waitress and the lack of service soured our visit.

Would give this closer to 3.5 stars, but the service here bumped it up to a 4. Huge fan of most Batali restaurants, but Sabbia missed the mark for me with some of the food. Portion sizes are rather small for the price of the dishes, but the quality didn't match the price for me. For example, I had the gnocchi, which were good, but could be found at so many other Italian restaurants in the city for a larger portion and similar taste for the same price. My husband had the tagliata di manzo, which was shockingly small, although he did enjoy the flavors. I do recommend Sabbia for the unique setting and the delightful wine and antipasti, especially the cheese and salumi plates. I enjoyed the beachside scenery during the summer, but I vote for the ski lodge they turn this place into in the winter! Above all the else, the service was exceptional - our waiter was attentive, friendly, helpful and comped us desserts after a random guest walking by spilled beer on our friend. For dinner, I'll try another restaurant (Batali's Otto, anyone?), but would come back for the fun atmosphere with friends.

The food and wine was delicious. The gnocchi was extremely fresh with homemade red sauce and fresh basil. The wine was good however they ran out of the bottle that we wanted. It took 25 mins for the waiter to let us know they were out of the bottle. A little ridiculous considering they were not busy. Instead we got a more expensive bottle and they waiter did not offer us a discount. After waiting a long time without service we asked for a discount on our bill, and were given 10% off.

Perhaps I just expected something really different. Birreria is obviously great for people who like beer and the bar scene is vibrant. The space is absolutely beautiful. The service is fine. But the food was really underwhelming to me. We ordered the chicken and the salmon. The salmon was tasty but with very little in the way of sides. The chicken was not good at all--rather tasteless but the couscous was good. The olives were good--I liked the variety. Because the space and the view is the best part, I'd recommend going for a drink and having food downstairs among the variety of choices where I thought the food was much more tasty. This opinion on the food probably also has to do with the region of Italy that the food represents--northern Italy, where I have not traveled.

My guests' pasta was flavorful, but clearly had been sitting for awhile before it was served . They are big eaters, but didn't finish. My chicken was meh.

Service was so slow and uninspired--might as well have eaten in a cafeteria. We had reservations, but the hostess seemed unsure where to seat three people despite the plethora of tables.

I read on Yelp that Sabbia previously lost reservation, won't seat people, was not particularly friendly. I thought it was just a fluke. But it happened to me word for word.\n\nI made the reservation well in advance. Sabbia even called to confirm my reservation the day before. I answered the call and confirmed that my friends and I will show up. \n\nHowever, when I actually got there, they can't find my reservation. They could not find it under my name, the time, the number of people in my party, the email address. The OpenTable.com confirmation e-mail means nothing. I showed it to them on my phone and they still have a hard time figuring out what name the reservation is under, even though it's right there in the middle of the e-mail.\n\nThe host outside the lower elevator entrance almost refused to let me in, because she can't find my reservation. After she finally lets me through to go 'check with upstairs', I have to go through the same thing with the host upstairs. Again, name and e-mail yielded no result. After I reminded them that they have called me the day before and confirmed my party of six, they found my reservation by looking up my phone number. \n\nAt this point, of course they refused to sit us until our entire party is here, because they never prepared a table for us in advance. The whole place is so crowded and packed with happy hour people that there isn't even room for those of my party who're already there. What is the point of a reservation if they are not expecting us even though they confirmed that we would show up?

Though on the roof, the 'view' was nothing to get excited over. The prices were high compared to other Batali/Bastianch restaurants. My veal chop was pounded paper thin, dry, and the melted cheese merely a drizzle, with a few cubes of prosciutto cotto to sprinkled around. My wife's braised pork with apples and cabbage was excellent however. Appetizer of 'sciatt' (battered and fried liable cheese) was pretty good but my prosciutto app contained several small slices of bone. Wine at $15 a glass, was one of the cheaper ones.\n\nThe waiter was nice enough but not attentive, more likely to speak to the other wait staff than scan the room. Had to wait very long to get and then pay the check.\n\nMaybe the beer garden at this local is great but the pop up Baita no so much.

Our appetizers arrived and were delicious down to the very last bite just in time for our entrees to arrive (the restaurants/servers timing was excellent). My husband had meat and each bite was juicy, tender and full of flavor. I had a fresh homemade pasta dish with mushrooms and cheese ragu - a great combination of creamy, nutty flavors with fresh pasta!

We had a great time and first rate meal at Sabbia, the pop-up restaurant at Eataly where the theme is the Italian seaside. The place is festooned with beach paraphernalia: umbrellas, signs ('spiaggia nudista -->'), lights and such that create a festive atmosphere. Although I read some negative reviews about the service and wait time, I decided to take a chance and I am glad I did. Our reservation was for 6:15 and since we arrived early, we went to the bar and the hostess said she would send a text when a table was ready. We were seated within a few minutes, twenty minutes before our reservation time. The waitstaff was attentive and informative. When we were through with dinner, the waiter told us not to worry about lingering and just have a good time. The meal was perfect from charming cocktails through dessert. As appetizers, we had the escarole salad with shaved fennel and parmesan, grilled shrimp and fritto misto. Dinner included pasta with broccoli rabe, gnocchi and fussili with seafood. Each dish was excellent and portions were neither skimpy nor over done. Dessert included gelato and house made cannoli with espresso and after dinner drinks. The meal came in at $262 including the tip. The only warning is that although Sabbia is a rooftop restaurant, there is really no 'view' in this part of town. And, afterwards you can shop at Eataly for a few things to take home!

When I persisted, he gave in, but told us we wouldn't be allowed to order food. Fortunately, the waiter didn't get that memo, and he was quick to bring us drinks and appetizers while we waited for our third who was stuck in rainy-night traffic.

If you want good, authentic Italian food, this is your place. And the outdoor setting is pleasant, though not particularly scenic. The service was good, and the prices right in line with NYC fare. But the bar was a mad scene. I could not even get off the steps to get through the crowd to my friend, who was waiting for me at the bar; I had to text her to work her way out to me. It was also quite noisy. But the three of us were led to a table across the room and seated at a nice table for four that was a bit sheltered from the cacophony. And when the food came, all was forgiven.

Went to Sabbia's to top off a weekend trip to Times Square. Food was very good although the service was spotty at best. I attribute this to the place just opening in May and suspect it will improve as the summer goes on. Sabbia is on the top floor of Eataly-NYC which you must visit. If in the area and looking for lunch in an Italian villa seaside setting I would definitely consider Sabbia.

Although at the top of a reasonable high building, the views are almost non existent. You can see somethings, but only if seated in certain places and then only 'upwards'.

Overall, Sabbia is a fun, lively outdoor restaurant on the roof of Eataly - Flatiron, but when we ordered a 'side sallad,' a plate of only iceberg lettuce with light dressing was served. It was disappointing that it included nothing else. No tomatoes, no onion, no cucumbers, nothing more. Quite surprising with the fantastic selection of produce in the store below. When we got the bill, we were shocked to see the price of this sallad: $14! We feel this was quite overpriced. \n\nAlso, tea was on the menu, but we were told no tea was available. Quite surprising, since the grocery store is just downstairs.\n\nAfter complaining to the waitress, we got our espresso, decaf coffee and dessert deducted from the bill, which was fair.

Having made a reservation weeks in advance was worthless. We waited an hour, repeatedly checking in with the host who said she would send a manger to check on our table, but was clearly not the slightest bit concerned about our wait. She suggested we wait at the bar, oblivious to the fact that the bar was so crowded you could not physically reach it. We were only seated after we said we were leaving. Then they took our party of 9 and crowded us around a table that had previously seated 5. The food was unremarkable. There is no view. The entire experience was horrendous.

So I guess they've change the name from Birreria to Baita for the winter, and had also changed the menu. La Birreria used to be a great place with great food and that's why I'm a regular there. Today I found a menu that lacked variety, the waitress messed up our order, brought dishes that we didn't ask for, and the ones we ordered never really arrived until we had the check already signed. The food we were served was just ok, but our cocktails were great. Today was a big disappointment and sadly it took away my interest in coming back (at least for a while or until they change their menu again).

This was my fifth or sixth visit to Birreria. It could well be last, at least for dinner. (I went for lunch not long ago and it was fine then.) The menu and beer list are just as imaginative as before, the meal very tasty. Our server was great. So what's the problem? Crowds and noise. I've had more relaxing subway rides. There was a deafening alt-rock soundtrack and the place was mobbed with young people unaffected by it, their eardrums apparently transformed by growing up with earbuds plugged in all the time. Lots of people seemed to be having a good time, so if you're young and want to dine at a place that will remind you of recent frat parties, go and enjoy. This is not, however, the spot for a memorable meal with friends, unless you like to shout. We went on a weekday evening, would hate to think about what it's like on a Friday or Saturday.

I was excited to bring my foreign colleague here, not only to see the market in Eataly downstairs, but also because in the past I have had such good culinary experiences. This time the experience was a bit of a let down. The music was so loud we were hoarse by the end of the night, and it even got turned up louder during the meal even though people were leaving the bar area and the din was lessening. \n\nThe appetizer was fine, the cask wine good, but my meal was an even bigger disappointment. My duck was good at first, but the fans everywhere and over the bar that were blowing directly on our table caused the meat to be cold by the time I started eating--especially since none of the dishes arrived at the same time. The carrots were fine but flavorless, while the pureed carrots tasted like freezer burn. All in all it was not the experience I have had in the past and I was not impressed. \n\nFine for a nice afternoon of basic but uninspiring food, but by evening when we are cooling down the extensive fans make the restaurant uncomfortably chilly.

The bar area is amazing and our bartender was fabulous. It is definitely worth going for drinks. Dinner service was very slow. It took our waiter at least 20 minutes to come and greet us. I got a pasta dish that I would have made at home. Maybe better at home. Nothing special. my daughter got a fish dinner that was over done with potatoes that were soggy. Not up to Mario Batali standards for sure. I have to say the tiramisu and cappuccino was the best part of the meal. Very good. Would not go back for dinner. Drinks definitely! Sadly disappointed.

This is my second time back and my friends and I had the worst experience. From the moment of check in to getting our check was terrible. They were very in accommodating and it's not just us. The table next to us also were having difficulties w the host and seating process. Our waitress was polite but not attentive. The only people who were really nice were the bussers and another waiter who actually took out order. After we paid our check, we were asked to leave so another group can be sat. My friend conveyed out dissatisfaction w the manager on duty and he did not really care. I don't think we've ever dined anywhere where you are asked to leave after you have had paid.

Not worth the money. Overpriced for very small portions. Ordered the three cheese plate appetizer. Each cheese was about a tablespoon. Didn't come with any kind of crackers or bread. Had complimentary bread at the table but we had finished it by the time the cheese arrived. We were not offered additional bread and our waitress was no where to be found to ask for more. Shrimp appetizer was good. Dinner gnocchi again , was a small portion. Would not return.

We came for the raclette (melted cheese dish), mulled wine, and alpine ski lodge decor at the end of March when a blast of cold air put us in the mood to enjoy winter flavors one more time before spring.\n\nWe got no alpine decorations (taken down several weeks before the restaurant transitioned for no apparent reason), no mulled wine (taken off the menu several weeks before the transition as well), cold raclette, and a sever who could not be bothered to visit our table until we asked another waiter to find him for us. The most annoying part of this experience is that I had checked Eataly's website that very day to ensure they were still doing their alpine seasonal restaurant, but the online menu (and pictures of the decor) had not been updated to reflect the fact that Eataly had totally given up. That was a lovely surprise we got upon arrival.\n\nDespite having enjoyed rooftop drinks here a few times before, I don't think I'd ever come back after this experience.

While I was initially unsure about the Italian Seaside-themed Sabbia restaurant that's replacing La Bierreria this summer, it was delicious and easy to get a reservation. They do not serve a brunch menu, just the same menu for lunch and dinner, but there are plenty of options. We had to ask multiple people multiple times before we were finally given bread, though every other table seemingly got bread immediately when they sat down. The cheese plate consisted of exactly that, cheese, and a plate with jam, no crackers, no bread, just cheese, so keep that in mind. Otherwise, my wife loved her seafood pasta, and I enjoyed the broccoli rabe pesto on mine.

Not sure where to start. My son turned 21 and wanted to celebrate at a beer garden/rooftop restaurant. We selected the beer garden at Eataly for 6 people. Let me say something nice before I say the not-so-nice. The food was decent. Expensive and small portions but tasty. 3 out of the 6 entrees came out room temperature or cold. These were all meat dishes. We flagged down the waiter who called over the manager and made new ones. The white wine and rose glasses that we ordered were not very cold so we resorted to ice cubes. The portions were small and expensive. \n\nWhen it came time for the bill to come, we were not even comped a glass of wine let alone a round on the house. When I mentioned to the manager that we were not tourists and expected something off on the bill he was in shock. He said that he immediately made us 3 new meals and that he did something for us. \n\nI guess the bottom line is they want to act like a bar but when you are charging $25-$32 for an entree, you have to act like a real restaurant. We were not impressed. We were comped a few drinks. We all left disappointed. We should have went to a steakhouse. That was the consensus.

Baita is located on the rooftop of Eataly. I had the good fortune to be there for dinner when it was a clear, warm day and one of the ceiling windows was opened up to give me a nice view of the skyline.\n\nThe strongest parts of the restaurant are its beer selection and food. The restaurant has beers from all over the country (and a few from abroad) with a consistent Belgian and Italian theme to them. The restaurant also brews its own cask beers which switch at the beginning of Fall and the end of Winter. Their cask beer is actually very good and well worth having at least one while you're there. Their food is also pretty good and have a variety of appetizers and cheeses to go with their drink selection.\n\nMy top two criticisms are that there does not seem to be enough room to have both a bar section and restaurant, and the price. Their cask beer is $10 a pint, which is absolutely outrageous when the beer they buy from other breweries is cheaper. The food is also pretty pricey where a single entry ranges in the $20-$30 range while the other ones never go below the $10 range. The place is also a bit cramped. You have a bar and restaurant but there is a divide between the two that gobbles up a lot of space; you have people crowded in the bar section with very little place to move.\n\nOverall, it's probably worth going to this place if you're a beer fan and want to try their cask ales or find a few things you won't normally find where you live if you're on vacation.

This rooftop bar was buzzing when we arrived Friday evening. It was absolutely packed but we were still able to get a table immediately because we had a reservation. \n\nThe cured meat plate was the highlight of the meal. The other appetizers and entrees were good, but not great. The wine selection is good but limited to a handful of bottles but the beer menu is amazing. We did not order dessert from the restaurant because their menu was underwhelming but we did order dessert in their ground level marketplace. Be sure to visit the marketplace--it is amazing. \n\nOverall, I loved experiencing this restaurant once but will likely not return.

An awful experience. So HOT on the top floor in Manhattan. Open air, but the roof panels only go back so far and the fans are situated above the umbrellas so not even a breeze---serious lack of consideration here. Food lukewarm or cold although they were hot items. Over 45 minutes until we were greeted by the waitress---had to ask for drinks 2 times and then the bartender made the wrong drinks. 3 hours into the dining experience and we just received main courses. Food was appalling for a 'celebrity' chef. Very disappointing. I suppose if you were just going for drinks ( and you weren't in a hurry) it could be quite pleasant.

My date and I felt really nauseous once we had been seated for 10 or so minutes. We ended up just ordering a few apps and a specialty drink. \n\nWe think it might have been the air quality since the cover was up and there weren't any fans blowing in our section. It was certainly a bizarre instance since we both felt this way. This definitely ruined our experience, but everything else was nice. \n\nMight have to try the bar on a clear night to give the whole thing one more try.

We had a party of 5 and ordered family style. There was nothing that was outstanding. The seafood pasta was terrible, I think we could have had better from Olive Garden (it was that bad). The waitress was not the best. We ordered sparkling water and since we had a large group, we always order the large bottle. She said they only have small bottles, which is fine. While we were waiting for our food, we noticed several other tables with large bottles. I point it out to her and she didn't know what to say. I also pointed out the cost of two smalls vs one large and there's a price savings on the larger bottle per ounce--even though she said they are the same. I think the lower level restaurants at Eataly are much better. Best to avoid Sabbia's food and maybe just go for drinks.

Food was fine, nothing special. Service was mediocre. Place is dirty. And no one downstairs in Eataly can tell you where this place is or how to get up there (elevator). The address is 200 Fifth Avenue but it's actually on Broadway. When you find it, if you enter #200, that is a high rise building and the restaurant is not in that building. You have to enter through Eataly and make your way through the mob scene to an obscure elevator in the rear corner. I asked 3 employees where it was and how to get up there and no one knew. There is signage but it is sparse and not obvious except for one large sign on a back wall. But there is so much sensory overload it is actually easy not to see the huge sign on the back wall. Anyway, there is a surly girl sitting behind a desk near the elevator who reluctantly waves in the general direction of this crappy elevator. When you exit the elevator, there is no one to direct you. You climb another flight of stairs to the restaurant. Food is average at best and very expensive for what it is. When I called the day before for a res, they play a game I despise which is: 'we are completely booked but we can take you at 11:30am.' When we arrived, the place was empty. When we left after 1pm, the place was half full at most. I wouldn't be bothered to go back.

i have shopped at eatly for my provisions for the past five years but this was my first , and most likely last visit to one of their restaurants.\n\nthe appetizer portion sizes were extremely sparse, to the degree that they generated conversation amongst the diners at the table and i would say it was an embarrassment to the establishment. they were tasteful but way undersized for the price. for example..5 $, US, for a single slice of green zucchini with a house marinade...8 $ US for six slices of cappy..etc etc...just ridiculous and the poor service made the experience difficult to bear\n\nthe main course was tasteful but again way way overpriced...28$ ,US , for a very very small portion of grilled octopus and a handful of cannelloni beans.\n\ndinner was accompanied by a reasonable priced bottle of sicilian white wine at 42$ US.\n\nthe lack of service was abysmal to the point of being comical\n\nSo ..i would never recommend this establishment at all to anyone looking for a night out for a quality dinner

Had the cheese tray, which was just 3 small bite size pieces of cheese on a large plate. No fruit or crackers, bread or jelly. Just cheese...on a plate. Waited a long time for waiter to get to us. The veal was terrible, over fried with what looked like canned soup on top that was rubbery at best. Couldn't even eat it. Also tried the pork which was presented well, but very fatty. Left half of it on my plate.\n\nOverall very disappointing, not worth the money in an area with a lot of much better places to eat.

Upstairs from busy Eataly, this restaurant is amazing! It was very busy, so always make a reservation. We loved the staff, even the table bussers who were of such great help in choosing cheeses to try. Their rich, decadent beers, meats, cheeses, & other food dishes were out of this world. There is a softened, melted cheese appetizer that nobody should miss while dining there. The ambiance is outstanding. It is a rooftop set up like a greenhouse so it does get warm during the day - wear layers even if it's cold out. We loved our experience at Baita. Bring your appetite!

I had been to La Birreria once before, but only to sit by the bar with friends and experience new beers. It was a good experience. We didn't have food then. This past Friday, we experienced some decent weather for the first time in a while here in NY, so I thought the girl and I were due for a rooftop/outdoor dining experience. Baita/Birreria sounded like the perfect venue. \n\nHaving lived in Vicenza, Veneto for 4 years, I was excited to get some Northern Italian cuisine, as Baita is billed (Yes- I get that Veneto isn't 'Northern Italy' but traveled, hiked, skied, et cetera extensively in the region). That's probably where I went wrong- my expextations too were high (Secret to happiness: low expextations). How could I possibly expect Baita to deliver? I shouldn't have set my expectations so high, yes, however, I didn't expect food worthy of a rest station on the side of the Autostrada - which, btw, for the price, is actually very good. However, the food at Baita - not so much. Calling it autostrada-rest station food would be giving it a compliment. What I had is what can be described as American high school cafeteria veal cordon bleu, and my girlfriend had a weak gnocchi dish with piss poor pomodoro sauce. I don't mean to be so scathing, it's just that I expexted better. I don't think I am exaggerating; I welcome feedback/criticism of this review. \n\nAll that said, however, their cheese plate was quite good. Their lavender honey (or was it hazelnut? I forget...) is pretty on point. Their beer selections is excellent - one of only a few places that I know of in the city which offer Baladin.\n\nAlso must be said- the service was great- although, it must be noted, that we were seated late, the restaurant did not mark that we arrivedfor the reservation, so OpenTable assumed we were no-shows. No bene.\n\nDon't go expecting a great experience. However, if you want a decent view whilst having a few beers, La Birreria is decent - though the crowd is stuffy and a bit bro-y.

My visit from out of town lined up with the last few weeks Baita is expected to be 'popped up.' As a huge fan of all things Italian, living in a place where there is no such thing as an Italian Alps themed restaurant, we had to give this place a try. Alpine decor was super fun. The room is loud, but not unbearably so. Staff were friendly and knew how to pronounce everything on the menu (yes, I am picky about this), although service was quite slow the night we were there. We tried Raclette (must have!!), Salmerino, Cotechino con lenticchie, Casarecce ai funghi, all of which were delicious. Everyone liked their drinks (Bloody Margarita, Flip Ale, and Vin Brule'). Closed the evening with some heady Grappa di Moscato, which you can't get where we live either. All in all, I'm very glad we got a chance to have dinner at Baita.

The ambiance was great, as it is an enclosed rooftop with twinkle lights and a super cozy comfy winter lodge feel. That was the best I could say about this 'restaurant'. The food and drink menu seemed interesting but certainly disappointed with high prices and small portions. In addition, the wait staff couldn't be bothered with doing their job and we had to hunt them down to place our orders. Even when we were ready to leave and asked to have the table cleared, we waited for our server to give us the bill, when we glanced over at the next table, he was eating and socializing. We seriously could have walked out on the bill, which of course we did not. And when we had another waitstaff ask him for the bill, he dropped it on our table and left. Just so rude and disappointing but you can't expect much from a pop up I guess. Unfortunately we won't be returning to Eataly either.

We both had different sausage dishes that cost almost $30. Mine had a good-sized portion of polenta on the side with two medium sausages and a small amount of sauerkraut. His was a pork sausage that seemed to have been split and grilled with a small portion of lentils. All the dishes we asked about the waitress told us were small. For the money I was not happy.

Unfortunately I went to Baita with great expectations, since it is inside Eataly and therefore associated with quality and personality. However, they have 2 or 3 raclette machines and the cheese arrives at the table already melted. In the Alps it is customary to bring one machine per table and for people to make their own raclettes... That was what I was expecting, since the restaurant calls itself Baita. A little ball of gooey cheese in a petit Le Creuset-inspired pan is such a weird serving. Very disappointing.

We had a terrific lunch for 8 at this inventive space atop Eataly, the foodie shopping haven. Service was attentive and everyone had a great meal. I'd lured everyone there with the photo from the restaurant's web site, which shows the restaurant very dramatically and romantically lit with strings of glowing lights and warm tones. For lunch in full daylight, however, the effect is much different-- more industrial and plain than ski hut chic. Nonetheless, I heard not a peep from my guests who still found the rustic touches (fur covered columns and tree branches overhead) and naturally lighted open space delightful. Me? I'd go back again for sure, but I'd like to enjoy my dinner amid the heightened ambiance of strings of softly glowing lights around me.

Unfortunately Baita falls victim to the same fate as many 'celebrity' chef affiliated restaurants. The 'Pop-Up' restaurant is little more than a tourist site and the food falls short in taste, look and service. \n\nThe space is bright, airy and quite pleasant on a sunny day, but go for one of the many beers and ciders and be on your way.

I expected more from this restaurant. We went there for lunch. The dining room was about three quarters empty, but we were placed at a table where the sun was glaring in my eyes and asked to be moved. We were then seated at probably the worst table by the kitchen door. Our server was not interested in us at all and my fish was very salty. Not a great experience.

This space really can't be beat. In the dead of winter it is lovely to be able to dine on a rooftop enclave in the Flatiron. The Italian apres ski decor is really fun and festive. The bar is also very lively and has an impressive selection of beers (averaging about $10 each). I came for lunch during restaurant week, though, and was quite disappointed with me experience. It was one of the coldest days of the year and they sat me by the OPEN window with no heat lamp. My first course arrive boiling hot but my second course arrived stone cold. When I ordered a cocktail they said they were all out. When I ordered a beer instead they came back to say they were all out of that too. When my third choice drink arrived, a Mulled Wine - it was stone cold and served filled up about 1/2 way in a tiny glass. When you order a HOT cocktail you expect it to actually be hot! The service was extremely slow despite them not being very busy, kept me waiting for each course and the bill. The waitress was pretty unapologetic about having to give me my third choice beverage, which is often something other restaurants would offer to take off the bill. This place is great for drinks and an appetizer (my app, the polenta arrived hot and the raclette looked good) but I definitely wouldn't recommend it for a proper meal.

Being a family party of ten in New York for New Year we wanted somewhere special for lunch on New Years Day. We searched the internet and came across Baita. Booking a table on Open Table was very easy and we requested a round table at 12 midday and that is exactly what we got. The pop up restaurant was 'alpine' themed and great fun and situated on the roof top above Eataly an italian deli/specialty market with view of the Flatiron building. Was a great fun experience for my 12 year old niece and 16 year old nephew. Would definitely recommend.

The interesting thing about this place is its being perched atop the building above Eataly; and as I understand it, the ingredients for their meals come from the Eataly market below. So if you liked what you ate, odds are you'll find the components as you leave through the market. Our waitress was excellent and our food was served very quickly! The food was good and the portion sizes adequate to slightly small. The entrees were interesting northern Italian fare. The tiramisu was excellent...atypical of other versions I've had. The wine list was more extensive than I expected from a casual restaurant...and I presume I would have found the same wine below in the market had I taken the time to look and buy. With all the other fantastic Italian restaurants in town, I'm not sure I'd come back; but I'd definitely recommend it if you're going to be in the neighborhood. They are not open year-round, and they appear to fill up their tables when they are; so get a reservation!

I have been here before several times in the summer. We went here again Jan 2nd 2015 with a group of people and ordered the cheese plate (which said it came with honey) when we got the cheese sampler it was so small and there was no honey. Had to ask the person several times and it never came. The table next to us got the same exact thing (and there were only 2 of them) and their cheese hunks were almost double the size of ours (and we were 4 people). I leaned over to ask what they got and it was the same. For spending over $100 on food that was so incredibly small and someone else to get the same thing only a much larger size is very upsetting. I most likely will not be going back and not have good things to say about it when people ask me how it was. Total rip off this time around!! The pasta was a joke...the drink were good but lets be real. You cant mess up pours on beer and glasses of wine.

My friend and I had come for an early drink and charcuterie plate. We ordered bresaola and a selection of 3 cheeses. We received a plate of bresaola and 1 cube of the hard cheese, and maybe a tablespoon of the soft goat cheese. If that's all that was included in the price, the waiter should have let us know, or suggested a suitable substitution. (Apart from this shortcoming, our waiter was otherwise attentive.) We ended up having to order 2 of everything, bringing the bill (including one cocktail per person) to $100. The centerpiece of their menu is raclette with a choice of 3 accompaniments. We chose the 'pickled vegetables' accompaniment, which turned out to be raw potatoes. It's a nice enough room, flooded with natural light and decorated to look like a ski lodge in the Italian Alps. The website describes a view of the Flatiron Building, but you can't see it from this room.

My boyfriend and I loved the cheese plate at La Birreria, so we decided to stop in Baita this winter and try some more small places. The cheese plate with hazelnut/Frangelico honey is delicious. We had the robiola, taleggio, and gorgonzola dolce and they were all great, especially the robiola. We got speck to eat with it, and it was by far my favorite cheese-plate-meat. The seemingly beer-battered funghi fritti with garlic aioli was flavorful - the aioli very garlicy, but good. The mulled wine was yummy. Everything we saw and smelled looked great - we didn't have main courses, but everyone's food looked delicious!

A couple of things didn't work out too well: our fried mushroom dish was very salty. The first cocktail my girlfriend got wasn't mixed correctly. If you order a single raclette, the cheese was melted and put directly on the plate with fixings, which the cheese would congeal up immediately. Only if you order 3 you'll get a little crock pot to keep cheese warm and melty .

I came here on a Friday night following a few less-than stellar reviews I read from opening week. We decided to give it a chance regardless since the photos looked so holiday-esque and festive. \n\nBeyond the ambiance and drinks, everything else was very disappointing. The food was not of the quality we were expecting. For example, I had the veal entree which our server likened to a schnitzel. This was a large portion of rather tasteless veal on a plate next to arugula. Conversely, my boyfriend ordered the dumplings which were very light and served in a very small portion...unfortunately the taste did not make up for either aspect. Across the board, I would describe everything as bland, other than the mulled wine which I did enjoy.\n\nI would recommend going here for a drink at the bar, but definitely wouldn't recommend ordering even appetizers, as those too were underwhelming for the price.

The veal was a BIG disappointment. It's a 'Schnitzel', I had to search to find some Veal and that for $29! I could only taste the breading. The pork shoulder was good. The cod was very blend.

... I've been twice now and on both occasions I was quite disappointed. Mainly with the service or lack of it. The first time I went was for lunch and there were not many people yet it took ages to get any ones attention. The veal I ordered was tough and chewy and cold. The second time it was a little more busy but not so much. Regardless, everyone else seemed to be getting served except my friend and I. We went with our toddlers and asked for their food first but then no one came to take our order so we ended up not eating at all as by the time our little ones had finished (they bearly touched their food) we had to go so we left hungry. Also the waitress was quite rude. She never came to ask if we were ready to order, had any questions or anything. We had to ask her for things ... If we could find her that is. \nI was really looking forward to both times I went both in terms of surroundings and food but both times was highly disappointed.

We have been to a number of Eatly restaurants and have had great food on each visit. Unfortunately this was not the case at La Birreria. The appetizers were average, but a number of the entrees were sub standard. The pasta was served warm but the temperature of the dish was ridiculous. To the point that it wasn't edible. The server didn't notice that two of my guests didn't eat their meals. I had the pork and it came out raw from the kitchen. It took an extraordinarily long time to finish the cooking and even then it was still undercooked. Leaving me to finish my meal last. Very unfortunate. And we spent over $475.

I was looking for a rooftop gem to enjoy the New York sunset when I found this place on some google search. At first, I kept getting confused between Eataly and La Birreria. turns out they are the same location. Eataly is this incredible mix of food bazaar meets William Sonoma meets Italian Mega mall. There are at least 4 different eating 'bars' or indoor cafes downstairs. upstairs is the rooftop La Birreria. We made our way up, got seated. The staff is great, that food come out, and not what was expected. The 'salad' seemed to be al dente cabbage. tough and tasteless. my wife enjoyed the duck liver pate, but the bread was sub par. The beers offered, I tried the Dogfish Head 60, great, and then tried the flight on house brews, not so great. In the end, we were disappointed from a dining point of view. It's a loud youngster type of joint. A hang out and hot spot. The bar up top was absolutely packed...ah...I miss those days.

I've been to Eataly many times and always had a great experience. However that is not the case for La Birreria. Upon arrival the hostesses were nice. However our waiter, and frankly the rest of the wait staff, was terrible. We were seated next to the terminal where the staff enters orders. Before our waiter came over we were told we could put our bags in their walk way. Well, where could we put them? The female waitress rolled her eyes and said use the chair behind you. Then our male waiter came over before introducing himself said 'you can't use this chair! I might have people sit here!' I said someone else said we could use it and would move our belongings should that table get sat (it was 9:30pm and the table was never used). He sighed and walked away. He returned and asked if we wanted drinks but only took half the tables order. He disappeared for 20 minutes. I flagged down the manager and asked if he could take our order. He did but never asked why our waiter wasn't around. Our appetizers flew out of the kitchen...in fact, before our drinks. When the waiter finally returned he said they don't have anymore soda OR the pumpkin beer my husband ordered. We then said please tell us what you DO have and make sure the entire table orders a drink. He finally figured it out but again disappeared for 15 minutes. When he finally brought our drinks we were done with Apps. We asked if we could now place our entree order. Were there specials? Who knows?! Again the food flew out but the waiter never checked on us. I was so embarrassed mostly because I had friends in from another country and was excited to bring them to Eataly. Our waiter had such an attitude like we didn't just spend $700 on dinner. Sadly, I won't be back any time soon. Take note Mario Batali!!

This restaurant has its own interpretation of what Italian food is. I suspect that most people with experience of the Italian cuisine from Italy will not recognise themselves. To me the evening was a true disappointment: Vitello tonnato appearing as deep-fried lumps of sweetbread with almost no tuna sauce, the replacement in the shape of sautéed mushrooms that had been drenched in salt. The main course was however somewhat enjoyable, even if also this was presented in a very untypical Italian manner, so was the fact that the starter was taken off the bill without fuzz. This saves the experience to three stars.

Only criticism is that the menu hasn't changed for a while, so perhaps some more specials or I guess it may change to an Autumn menu soon.\n\nReally nice atmosphere out on the wood deck, overlooked by the Flatiron and the other nice buildings surrounding Madison Sq. The bill can creep up if you're not careful, but it's quite a chilled and relaxed place to dine that we keep going back when friends or family are in town.

I had heard a lot of people recommending this restaurant so decided to check it out with some friends. It was a Saturday night but we got seated right away with our reservation (which we had to make almost a week in advance). In terms of food, the menu was pretty limited and I was surprised that they only had a few pasta dishes and it was mostly meat dishes. The food came out fast but it was pretty average overall with small portions and a big price tag. Service was ok, but not super attentive and we had to flag down another server a few times. In terms of the view (which is the main reason we came here), we were very disappointed. It is a rooftop but we couldn't see much at all. Too much was blocking the view and it was also obstructed by surrounding buildings. Not impressed. Honestly, I would skip dinner here and grab a drink at one of the nearby rooftop bars if you're looking for a nice view and relaxing atmosphere.

Being part of the Eataly group of restaurants I guess we set our expectations too high? The customer service right from the get go was rude and unaccomodating, they beat around the bush and avoid clearly answering your questions. The hostess also appeared to loathe her job along with the guests she had to speak with. The food was mediocre too dry and way too much salt. Have you ever had salty salad? Drinks are definitely overpriced with nothing to show for it. Our server was friendly and great at first then left us for a good 20 mins after handing out dessert menus and then took another 20 mins to retrieve our bills and then another 15 mins to retrieve our change. They started closing down the restaurant while we sat there waiting for change. The open rooftop is beautiful especially at night when you can see the stars but new management and menu needed before I would ever give it a second chance.

Been wanting to try La Birreria in Eataly across from the Flatiron Building for ages and finally made a reservations with 3 co-workers during Restaurant Week. Ambience is great. Gorgeous sunny day. Did not feel like I was in the city. Food was creative, tasty and filling but not so much we felt uncomfortable.

All the food was good. I especially recommend the pork shoulder. I never order pork at restaurants and this was amazing. I also recommend getting some of the cured meats and cheeses to start. Dessert was also good. I had an old-fashioned which was strong and pretty good. There was fruit in it, which I don't consider to be appropriate in an old fashioned, but it wasn't watered down or overly sweet. I didn't try any of the beer. The wine was good, but not outstanding.

I went to La Birreria the first time a couple of years ago and loved it. Went again recently and was very disappointed. It was incredibly loud, the service was slow and the staff rude, and the food (taste and presentation) was very disappointing. Previously when there, we were served the cheese/meat platter on a wood board with apricot, nuts, etc. This time it came on a plain white dinner plate with no accompaniments...small cuts of cheese/meat with no presentation whatsoever. Our waiter was not versed in any food sensitivities and when asked about gluten free suggestions for my friend, was rude and not helpful - she ended up having soup for dinner.

We had made a lunch reservation, hoping for a rooftop experience with a view. The day was beautiful, and the outdoor spot was a nice respite from the hecticness of Eataly and the street below. There are awnings and fans to reduce the heat of the sun. The tables are nicely spaced to give you some elbow room. We enjoyed the restaurant week menu....panzanella, pasta and pork sausage dishes, with panna cotta for dessert. Food was good, portions small. Had a great Barolo wine.

I tried eataly/birreria after much prompting from the wife. We were fortunate to go during NYC restaurant week. there was a prix fee option of $25 for lunch/$38 for dinner. We had lunch. There was a limited 3 options for appy and main and 1 option for desert. I had the fried shiitake appetizer and my wife the house salad. I was hoping for pastas but only 1 choice was available.My wife had the pesto pasta and I had a sausage over cannelloni and we both had a ricotta type pudding desert(no other choice, remember). Even at $25 I thought it was overpriced for the portions but I guess you pay for the atmosphere..rooftop. It was hot though and tables under the fans were at a premium. Originally we were tucked next to a wall..no air movement..yuck..I noticed the regular menu..which had my dish at $24 alone..and the shiitakes were$12..I would have REALY felt gipped if I paid that. All in all it was an experience I can now check off...but nothing more then that. The next time I visit Eataly I am staying downstairs ,where the pasta choices seem more abundant..although I am sure I will pay a premium for that 'experience' as well

I have eaten in Eataly before and was impressed by the choices and freshness of food. My niece wanted to go to a rooftop restaurant and I decided to take her to La Birreria. The rooftop restaurant has a great beer selection but the food is upscale pub fare. I do not eat beef or pork and therefore had limited choices.I ordered the mushroom 'snack' which were fried shitake mushroom, no dipping sauce provided and the taste of the mushroom was over powered by the greasy fried batter. The chicken thigh entree although tasty was not balanced - three chicken thighs ( pan - fried) with couscous and vegetables ( very skimpy) too much chicken not enough vegetables and couscous. This place may have been lost on me as I prefer lighter fare. The waitress was not very knowledgeable when explaining the dishes which also did not help in finding something pleasing. The restaurants/counters inside Eataly are much more worth a try. Go here for a drink at the bar and to take in the minimal rooftop scenery.

I have lived and dined in New York and been to many many restaurants. I expected so much more from both a Mario based restaurant and a roof top experience. The service was by far the worst I have ever experienced. We had to ask to order wine, we were never offered more or the opportunity to order more drinks. The food was incredibly slow to arrive and again had to flag down the server to order. The food was fair at best. We were on a great roof top on a clear night yet the covers were on the restaurant so we couldn't see any of the view at all, might as well have been inside. It was also 4th of July...once the fire works started, the STAFF all rushed to the windows and stood there with their phones in the air filming and watching the fireworks. It appeared even the kitchen staff came out. Not only were patrons not able to see from their tables, but clearly we were not receiving any service during this time either! Given the reputation and the price, location...this capped off a very great 4th of July weekend with a horrible experience. We will never go again. Very disappointing.

All employees had very non-caring attitude in many areas we encountered. The server was inattentive, got things wrong and chased my friend down for a larger tip than the one we gave him that he didn't deserve and then told her he didn't charge her for the wrong beer he brought her. It took 30 minutes to literally flag him down with the menu in the air to get the right one that was already re-ordered. We thought when he chased down the table next to us that maybe they had not paid their check but now think it was probably for a tip he thought should have been better. With 2 of us being in the biz I could see no excuse for his poor service based on the amount of customers and tables he had in his station. When the hostess saw him approach my friend she essentially agreed with our assessment listened to our story and gave us an oh well response and brushed it of as it was the norm with this server....and acceptable. Not that it mattered but maybe the offer of a free beer could have gone a long way. Took 3 friends from California there on a 3 day trip and feel like we certainly wasted an evening and a lot of money. And I think we work just as hard if not harder for our money than the server did when he cried poverty to my friend who was so taken aback and put on the spot, gave him the larger tip in cash that he never deserved. 3 of us are single moms and our money is earned. TIPS = To Insure Prompt Service. Clearly Restaurant 101 that the servers there do not know. Tips are earned, they are not a gift.

Usually not a big beer drinker, I ordered the Dogfish Aprihot (apricot flavored) and loved it. As the main meal, I had the Maiale alla Birra, tender beer-braised pork shoulder, a Birreria specialty.

Seated for 10 minutes before server, Danielle, came over. Then she spilled half my glass of wine and didn't offer a replacement. I had to flag her down every our table of 6 needed anything. Food just OK. Not spectacular. Not horrific. Setting is awesome. But that is all. Perhaps a place just to come, hang by the bar with friends. Not for a meal.

This is a great place. I have been a few times. The food is nice, the beer is good, and the winelist is pretty solid too. Book ahead so you can get a table!

Everything was exceptional. Our server was very knowledgeable of the beers offered and described the dinner entrees wonderfully. The food was delicious.

Lunch has a very limited selection. They were also training someone so service was less than stellar
