Artist Sinem Disli invites you to dine under the stars. We are bringing the starlight indoors with the help of 33 handmade iridescent yellow light fixtures, arranged artfully with a gentle slope of the night sky. The yellowish-white color has been declared to be the average color of the universe in 2009, after the scientists had analyzed the light from 200.000 galaxies, formed by stars individually indistinguishable by the naked eye. The artist captured that warm beige shade with yellow LED lights in 6 different sizes, which are then arranged in the shapes of 33 constellations.

Perfect place for brunch on your way to Penn station. We were pleased with everything we ordered, especially the burrata and the omelette. The omelette was perfectly cooked. The burrata was delicious with fruit and honey. It paired perfectly with the espresso chocolate martini. The service was great. You order on your phone but if you need help they are there to help you. We will definitely go back next time we are in the city.
AYZA is an incredible find - best-kept secret in NY. Seriously amazing food with very clever flavor pairings - (e.g., avocado toast with smoked salmon and pomegranate...?! Exquisite!!) And of course, the drinks - just explore each one, 'nuff said. You won't be disappointed!
The atmosphere is warm, elegant, cozy - and socially civilized with just the right amount of privacy. Perfect.
But the best part is the service! Everyone is great - and Audrey is AMAZING!!! Hip, kind, smart, and never forgets it's all about you. So refreshing!
Visit AYZA nine or fifteen times before it gets so popular you can't get in!

Ayza was a great choice for our weekend brunch in Manhattan. The food was good, portions were generous, chocolate martinis were tasty, and the service was excellent. My wife and I had visited Ayza years ago and will likely visit again in the future.
Hello from Ayza, Thank you so much for the positive review and glad everything you got was excellent; your support is very much appreciated , can't wait to see you and your wife again very soon!

Hello Shai, Thank you so much for dining with us and for the great feedback! We're so grateful for your support!
A first but not the last experience.
Option presented to sot inside, outside or in the trolley.
Brunch with options for me and my vegetarian sister. I savored the French toast and she had an omelet.
I had a glass of Sangria and she a couple of strawberry chocolate martinis.
Hi Tamiko, Thank you so much for the great 5 star review; so glad you and your sister had fun dining with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Absolutely loved our experience. In a time when service is limited and we need to remain more patient, my group found the staff to go above and beyond in every part of our 2-hour brunch. They were so accommodating, fast, and wonderful. Then add the amazing cocktails and dishes and the beautiful ambiance and we had a wonderful time. Thank you!
What an absolutely amazing review Lisa! We're so glad you enjoyed yourself so much at Ayza, it's always our pleasure to accommodate lovely guests like yourself. We hope you will be back very soon for some more yumminess :)
As usual never disappointed! ♥️♥️
The food was awesome and the wine was great. However there is no real interaction between waiter/waitress and customer. I did see other staff checking on customers but I did not receive that same service. The restaurant is small but very nice. They also have outdoor dining and a cute trolley. I probably would not return due to the customer service which is something I am very big on.
Food was good and the service was quick. Which was good since we were going to a concert at MSG.
Hello, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We really appreciate it and hope to see you at Ayza again soon.
This is an experience. I recommend getting a lot of small plates and ending with a chocolate plate. Perfect place to have small bites and have conversations. The trolly outside seating is so unique i would ask for that for my table again.
Hi There, We're so happy you had a wonderful time at Ayza, that what we like to hear :) Thank you so much for the great review; looking forward to your return. Have a great week ahead!
We ordered the house salad and the description was completely different from what we got. I send it back but didn't get a refund since with the new system we paid in advance. Also the new system to order is great when friend are ordering in but not that friendly to request modifications (ie. sauce on the side, no basil, etc). Also no information about allergies or gluten free foods!!! This was very important for us!!
Love the outside trolley as newer addition. Drinks and desserts always yummy!
Hi There, We appreciate you taking the time to give a positive rating; thank you so much for the support! Come back soon!
The drinks were just delicious as was the food. I went there for the drinks but was impressed by the food too. The service was great !
Hello, We're so grateful for your positive review, we hope to accommodate you at Ayza again soon! Thanks so much for the support!
Went for brunch. The food was delicious. Drinks were a little small for the price but the chocolate martini was delicious. Very happy with our experience.
Honesty not a fan of these order yourself applications. if the customer has to do all of the work in ordering and then pay out before anything begins, service better be impeccable and in fact it was just okay. I understand COVID precautions are important and other restaurants have adopted similar systems, but in my opinion the system takes away from the dining experience.
Great Service. Awesome Presentation. Delicious Food.
I've been to Ayza numerous times over the years. I scheduled my most recent visit on Sept 16th to celebrate the birthdays of three family members, who's birthdays are all very close together. I knew Ayza would be a special treat that would make their birthdays feel special, and I was right. The food, wine and cocktails were amazing, and we were treated to the best service! We all had a wonderful time.
Delicious food and drinks but a little bit on the pricier side.
Hello, Thank you for visiting Ayza and for your review. We truly appreciate the positive feedback and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
I've loved coming to AYZA for years and supporting their return from the pandemic, and I'll definitely continue to returning! But, FYI, there is a new system for ordering though is a little frustrating: you order your food through an app, but you can't start a tab for your table. For example: for you to start with drinks, you'd order the drinks and/or appetizers, fully pay and close out the tab, then have to go in again to order entrees or dessert, pay fully again, etc. If you're with a group, it either causes for multiple charges to your payment method, or you take tons of extra time to have everyone decide upfront every item they want and guess how many rounds of drinks you'd like for the evening which doesn't feel as organic when catching up with friends.
Hi Nicole, Thank you so much for the positive review, and for your feedback. We realize the ordering system is a bit inconvenient at the moment, but we have been listening to valued guest and we're working on improving the system to make it more convenient. We appreciate your support and we hope you will come back soon for a more convenient dining experience.
This is my favorite place to meet with my friends. I dream about those chocolate martinis!
Roberta, you are now officially added to our List of Favorite Customers :) Thanks so much for the continued support and please come back soon so we can make your dreams a reality.
Me and my girlfriend went for our anniversary and they hooked us up. I requested flowers for the table and they actually did it, wasnt expecting them to actually do it tbh. We dined in the trolley which was a great experience, service was great ; food came out quick and it was delicious. I would recommend this place for any occasion.
Hi Ken, You ask, we deliver :) Thank you for choosing to celebrate your special day with us and we're so happy you had a great celebrations. We hope to see you again soon for many more blissful celebrations.
The food was amazing
Hi There, Thank you so much for the positive review and glad you enjoyed the food so much; your support is very much appreciated , can't wait to see you again soon!
Group of friends came together from out of town in NYC for a long weekend. Stumbled across Ayza and so happy we did!! The food and cocktails were delicious and the atmosphere was wonderful! Will definitely be back and recommend to everyone I know!
We're so glad you stumbled upon us and we didn't disappoint :) Thank you for visiting us and please come back with everyone you know ;) whenever you're in the city again.
We love going to AYZA and have dined here several times. This time the food and drinks were great as always but we had a bug in our red wine issue. Four glasses of wine, 4 bugs! The manager said it happens with the red wine since one of their walls is plants. Not sure of the reason but was disappointed that after 4 bugs the Manager didn’t even comp us a glass. Only exchanged each glass that had 2 sips out of it with a much less pour. It was almost like he was annoyed this kept happening to us. Either way he could have handled it better and it wasn’t out fault nor were we going to drink with with bugs!
Good drinks. Horrible food. Service is done completely through internet which was annoying. Felt like I was paying a ridiculous premium for an Uber eats meal that was worse than anything I could find on Uber eats
Hi There, We’re so sorry to see you didn’t have such a great time at Ayza! If wouldn't mind, we would really appreciate it if you could email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we would love to make up for the let down. Thank you, Emmy
Beautiful little restaurant. The ambiance is everything and transports you straight to the mediterranean. Makes for a great intimate dinner or romantic date. You must try the chocolate martini.
Hi Desiree, Thank you so much for this lovely review. We're so happy you were transported into a peaceful and romantic ambiance :) We truly appreciate your support and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Had a girls brunch and it was amazing. Heard so much good things about this restaurant and had to come. Plus if you love chocolate, this is the place to go. The beautiful host Valentina was such a great person who also served my table amazing. Overall I loved this place and will be coming back again. Thank you
We absolutely love this :) Makes us so happy to know you had such a great time at Ayza, I'll be sure to pass on your kind praise to Valentina. Thank you for the amazing review, we truly appreciate your support. Please come back soon!
I had an amazing time with my friends! Definitely the best chocolate martini I’ve ever tried! We loved the complimentary shots and chocolate covered strawberries. Delicious food! Great service! A really fun place to go! We’ll be back!
Brunch was delicious, loved the easy ordering from my phone and service was super quick! Also loved the outdoor dining trolley car experience.
Hostess was a gem. We had brunch, highlight was the crepe cake.
You're a gem :) Thanks so much for visiting us and for the great review! Can't wait to see you again soon.
First and foremost, the food and drinks were amazing, particularly the Peppermint Chocolate Martini. My date expected it to taste poorly, but almost chugged it down after the first sip. But the service was also great. Arriving 15 mins ahead of our reservation, the hostesses were extremely accommodating if finding an available table. And when we ordered more drinks at once (two) than allowed for one person at a time, the server did't make us feel bad. She instead brought out the drinks (ordered and paid for through an app that allows you to access the menu and payment system via QR Code from a cell phone), and very gently reminded us of the policy (which she ascertained we didn't know). The lime marinated tacos were amazing. I would definitely recommend trying this place to anyone seeking a cool outdoor vibe with great service.
Hi There, First and foremost, you're the best for this amazing review :) and secondly we're so glad everything you got was so delicious; thank you so much and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
