Besides a beautiful view and nice decor, the food was excellent and well presented. The staff was attentive and very professional. In response to mar, we not once felt rushed (we were there for about 2 hours) and the staff did an excellent job describing the menu. This was an outstanding dining experience and a good value for the $65 prix fixed dinner.

He comido en los mejores restaurantes del mundo pero este, tiene algo en la comida y en el servicio que te hace pensar despues de haberlo probado. El servicio excelente, la comida, una combinacion excelente, yo si regresaria todas las semanas por buscar algo nuevo en el Lunch menu
The Perfect Restaurant?

First of all, this is the first review I have ever written on the internet... so, why start on Asiate? Well, here is why. When I go to a restaurant I want good food. Thats the bottom line. The food me and my partner ate at Asiate was amazing. The service was brilliant, even down to "little gifts" from the chef during each course. It honestly was the best restaurant I have ever eaten at. Next, the views. Well if anyone can show me a better view than looking over Central Park and the Hudson then I really want to see it. I know that views don't make the food taste better, but they certainly make the whole experience better. The decor was very nice. A glass, walnut and silver theme is obviously present and works very well. Overall I have to give this restaurant 9.5 out of 10. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because there is always room for improvement... actually, saying that I don't know if this can get any better...

I've dined at Asiate for dinner and have found the food to be excellent, but, I must say, the brunch is absolutely wonderful and worth doing over and over again. A great value, a great view, with great service. Though I agree that there is a definite "tourist trap" vibe in the evenings, I will remind my other reviewers that the restaurant is in a HOTEL, which tends to, on occassion, attract a tourist or two...
Loved Asiate... foodies rejoice

Stayed at the Mandarin this weekend and enjoyed a fabulous brunch and dinner at Asiate. Brunch was family friendly, do take the kids and dinner was an elegant, sophisticated affair that lacked the pretention of other restaurants of this caliber. Great crowd and a lovely setting. Did an overnight package with my bride and spent a most fabulous day. The Brunch was amazing, the pork belly and French toast rule, then to prepare for dinner had a spa treatment. It just gets better; Dinner was the tasting menu with wine pairing. Everything was exquisite but the standout was the buckwheat pasta with quail egg and sea urchin. Devine... The wine selections were interesting, well paired and abundantly served. There was absolutely nothing that could have been done better, the service was seamlessly executed and impeccable, the food fabulous. That is the highest compliment for a restaurant. Bravo Asiate, Bravo...
