    Had the Louie Salad with Lobster. Was pretty good and would like to try a few other things on the menu.

    Kobe meatballs plus ricotta cheese on top is crazy good. Fried Oreos for dessert is also amazing.

    Don't be discouraged by the LAVO door, since the amazing musical talent and posh decor make it worth the wait to get inside!

    "Lavo" means “I wash” in Italian, yet for some reason, the Saturday Champagne Brunch is not the picture of purity. Restaurant slash nightclub, with Pastis-esque trimmings upstairs. Read more

    The food, drinks, and atmosphere was great for an afterwork hang out. They wanted $1500 to get into the club downstairs though. Crazy!!

    So fcking crowded. The dance floor is tiny and the worst part is that people are hella rude so they’re constantly shoving and spilling all over the place. The speakers are also way too loud.

    If you are here for dinner get the seafood platter. If you are here for the club, catch the live guitar that is mixed with the house music.

    Ops & Logistics Manager Bo's idea of the perfect night? Lavo. His idea of the perfect brunch? Lavo. What we're trying to say is Bo loves Lavo.

    At the end take care of the security guys and managers. They are currupt and will do everything to have a fight or steal your money (bottle )

    Get past the botox and the thumping house music - the food here is solid. LOVE the Spaghetti w/ Kobe Meatballs & garlic bread.

    The trick to handling the door staff here is smile, tell them you totally know Shia Labeouf, and offer them a free detailing anytime at your import repair shop.

    Okay, so this midtown ultra club may be too Vegas-y for our taste, but with recent guest performances from superstars like Avicii and Afrojack, Lavo doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Read more

    Try the Hummock Island Oysters by Westport Aquaculture. Hand picked exclusively for Lavo, these are by far the finest oysters in the world. See Vanity Fair December 2010 issue for more info.

    If u r from UK then don't compare services. Staff at Restaurants and shopping malls have bad attitude. Lavo is the the same. Food is very average, service does not exist. Gratitude is a must or else
