Worst NYE experience....bought tickets through Joonbug/Crave for NYE and they had us, GA and VIP tickets waiting outside,in the cold, for almost 2 hours, even though the lounge was barely full. Will NEVER return to this establishment.

I was visiting my friend in New York and decided to go out to Pranna. The atmosphere is great! The bartender at the bottom section was rude and obnoxious. Really need a class in customer service.

We came here to celebrate our 11 year-old daughter's singing recital. Wish we had gone elsewhere; the experience was not good. The chicken in the chicken wings was raw; the chicken in the chicken wraps didn't have any taste. Then we waited

Places like Pranna in New York absolutely deserve to go out of business. A friend had a birthday party here and had a couple of tables/bottle service. Obviously not everyone gets to a birthday party at the same time and we didn't either.

I threw a party here for my older brother's 30th birthday. It was really fun because we got to eat dinner and chill for a while, and then past 11 it turned into a club. We had the best of both worlds. AccessGotham booked the party for us, otherwise I wouldn't even have know this place existed! Don't miss out, it's a lot of fun!!!!!

I've been here many times in the past two years. However, the last few times it has always been a negative experience - bad service, bad music, bad attitude. The last time I went, I was with a group of 10 girls. There was a blond chic at the door who refused to let one of my friends in because she said her shoe looked like flipflops. How do three inch heels look like flipflops?? we were soo annoyed, we even showed her the shoe, but she insisted that it looked like a flipflop to her so she refused to let her in. someone was drinking on the job. We all vowed to never come to pranna again

I went here during restaurant hours for my friend's birthday party. Unfortunately he ordered the pre fix so we could not order our own meals. They brought out plenty of food for $50 per person (drinks not included) but the food was TERRIBLE!!! I cannot stress how bad the food was. I went there with any empty stomach expecting to walking out with a full one but I was still hungry when we left. Plus I went to the bar to buy the birthday boy a shot of Patron and I bought one for myself for us to take together, it came to a staggering $28. I know that it's Manhattan, but $14 for a shot? Avoid this place as a restaurant and if you MUST go for the lounge, get there early because they set up the velvet rope right around 11 and nobody likes to wait in line. Make sure you hit the ATM first. But I would avoid this place if I could.

Cons: Terrible food/prices

This is a nice venue but it is definitely overhyped and overpriced. You have to pay to get in on the weekends. For what? I don't get this place.

For a lounge like this, you really don't need to charge cover. I would recommend here for happy hour only.

the space is nice, the service wasn't too bad. Unfortunately the food was not good. I had a special tom-yum soup, which had no flavor to it at all and they gave me a teaspoon to eat it with, and the scallops with drunken noodles, which was pretty bad. My husband had the sirloin massaman, and he liked his OK, to be fair. I would not return.

Had a party at Pranna to celebrate my husband's new job last weekend and it was great - we had plenty of space in the Satay bar, the food was delicious (and plentiful!) and the service was outstanding. It was the perfect spot for a gathering of 20-30 people.

While planning for a weekday evening, post-holiday cocktail party for about 15 guests (an alumni board), a friend of mine suggested checking out Pranna for the event. I'm so glad she did! Pranna was the ideal venue for the group. The restaurant was relatively quiet since it was a Monday night, and the semi-private Horizon Lounge was the perfect intimate space for mixing and mingling in a relaxed, sophisticated environment. The event coordinator was extremely accessible and worked with me for several days to plan the menu and finalize the details for the evening. The food selections were delicious and plentiful, the wide variety of drinks (which we purchased on consumption, but for which there were also packages available) satisfied everybody's preferences, and the service was excellent --- the group all enjoyed a wonderful evening! I would definitely return to Pranna for an event in the future, whether in that same space or in one of their other semi or private spaces.

Pros: Fantastic Semi-Private spaces, great food and service

Deterred by some of the online reviews, I almost cancelled my site-visit... I'm so glad I didn't!

Planning a corporate event for 130 guests is no easy task, but Christine was a delight to work with. Pranna-by-day is classy and professional... What happens after midnight Fridays and Saturdays is a whole other world altogether (one that I'm not familiar with).

The food was delicious and the wine that Milen recommended paired perfectly with the hors d'oeuvres... I was concerned about the spiciness and exotic flavors, but my guests enjoyed the satays and curries just as much as they enjoyed the sliders and sweet potato fries.

The whole experience was just perfect... By 9PM our annual reception usually winds-down, but this year... it started winding up! We opted to extend the bar tab and our party captains (George + Lauren) were so accommodating... They even wrapped up some cookies for my boss's kids.

I highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to do an important dinner or reception. Pranna really came through--on so many levels--and my inbox has been overflowing with positive feedback.

There's talk about a cocktail tutorial in March (and a Summer Associates Reception in early June?) but for now, I'm just going to sit back, exhale, and smile for a job well done.

I never write reviews but I had to in this case because Pranna really did not fulfill their promises -

I had booked with a Pranna designated rep a table for 10 with the understand of a $300 minimum. When my party arrived, they told us it would not be available till 11 so we left only to come back to a huge line. The bouncer did not let us in ahead though we had reservations. We did not get in till midnight. At this point our waitress was nowhere to be found. She came about 2 times in 4 hours and then one last time to give a bill. She came so infrequently and was nowhere to be found so we had to buy drinks from the bar. This of course did not count towards our minimum which the waitress gave me an attitude when she finally did come (40 minutes later) and forced us to get bottle service. So my party of 15 ended up spending way too much money because we had to buy from since the waitress came in intervals of 30-40 minutes and then was forced to get a bottle. This really put a damper on to what was supposed to be a great night. I contacted the management which only offered a free champagne bottle if we came back again (about $20 in-house to bring a party so they would spend more money again). I was very disappointed in not getting the table when I was told I would by their representative, the extremely poor service and the little compensation by the service. The music was good but several places in the city have as good of music or better with a higher level of standards in service. I expect very little when I go out to a lounge but Pranna failed to meet it. I do hope they improve their service and do not commit to times they cannot follow

This place doesn't even deserve 1 star. It should be shut down.
Combined with poor food and poor inattentive staff this place is not a great choice to eat or spend an evening.

-Poor Food
-Poor Incompetent Inattentive Staff ?? waiters looking like their bored, college kids at the reservation table/checkin, we had to ask multiple times for refills on drinks, and the wait staff and manager had an attitude like they were doing us a favor.
-Horrible Lounge venue with poor crowd
-Door staff and bouncers are extremely rude. (in particular an overweight girl, an Indian guy who claimed to be the owner, and 2 rude bouncers who behaved like they were in a rap video)

There are too many options in NYC to go to, rather than go to an overpriced venue.

The crowd is bridge & tunnel at best who cannot get into B&C list clubs.

I wouldn??t recommend this place to a homeless person unless you want to hang out with cabbies.

We and our friends will never go here again!

I went out for the first time in years, it was my daughter's birthday thrown and hosted by this charismatic promoter named Kong from theKongList and I was highly impressed. Pranna is a very upscale, high-end establishment. It serves as a restaurant during the day and nightlife venue at night. There's 3 floors and each floor brings you something different and unique. I'm not sure about the maximum capacity level but the place seems to rather large. The rooms got more packed as the night went on and the energy seemed to grow seemlessly. I recommend Friday's @ Pranna to the grown & sexy.

I've traveled around southeast asia and have to say this place holds its own and can whip up some delicious naan! For dinner I had Laksa soup, one of my faves from malaysia and the steamed chili mussels. One can never have enough satay, so I chose the chef's selection too! Don't worry I wasn't here by myself, there was someone to share with. I wasn't sure what to order for my drink and the owner recommended the TYKU Pranna Sunset, the ginger and lime made it so refreshing! Dinner was so savory- with sweet, salty, and spicy complimented with a delcious drink, I will definitely come back to explore the rest of the menu!

As much as I like the food and the service while at dinner, there was a boucer at the door that was downright rude (definte need for an explitive here).

When I asked to leave for a minute and come back because I needed something from a friend's car, he claimed that I will have to stand in Line to get back in!! Never have I heard this said to someone who has just had a big dinner and spent north of 3 hours in a place.

When I did get back he looked at my bag and actually had the audacity to ask if I have knives in my bag. I was totally apalled at the question but just confirmed that it's a work bag and no i dont carry knives to work.

Later a few other friends complained (after I had left) that he was very rude and actually asked someone to shut up!!

When you do go to place thats supposed to be relatively fine dining the least you can expect is some courtesy!!

Definitely turned off enough never to go back!!!

My friends and I were supposed to join a party inside. We were made to stand in line and were not being allowed to enter unless we bought bottle service. This is just a money making scheme! In addition, to that the host walking around (I think her name was Grace) and the bouncers had the biggest attitude. Will never go back back to this place and I advise everyone to do the same!

I NEVER add reviews/comments and felt I had to for Pranna. I had my birthday party here this past Friday and it was one of the best nights my friends and I have had. There were over 40 people in my party and EVERYONE enjoyed themselves thoroughly. Pranna is a 1st class establishment. Everyone from the staff to the owners went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. The place is gorgeous, music was fire, and crowd was beautiful (my guy friends were quite happy). I can't say enough good things about Pranna!!

This spacious, glowing lounge and restaurant has quickly become my favorite spot. The open layout is inviting and warm; the upper level bar looks out onto the main floor, and the basement bar area provides its own mood as well- popular for younger club-goers. Pranna also offers an array of fabulous specialty cocktails. Alex Sanz (bartender) introduced me to my favorite, the Harvest Moon- a delightful drink including Makers Mark, pomegranate seeds, and a freshly ground nutmeg garnish. I was thoroughly impressed by his expertise and friendliness behind the bar- it created a memorable and enjoyable experience that I will surely have again!

I work in the neighbrhood and I go there about four times a week. The Owner knows me by now. She always come by to say hello and sends me the Wok Fired Cashews which are delicious. Also the Nan bread with the two dips is to die for. I just can't get enough of it. I love the atmosphere and ambience at Pranna. It is really relaxed and they never rush you out. The service is very attentive. I highly recommend Pranna.

This place is AMAZING! I have been there on many occasions ever since they opened. You can go there for so many different things. I went there for dinner with my family... great flavorful food. The satays are wonderful and I loved the Pranna bakery for dessert. I went there again with some co-workers for happy hour and we enjoyed beer & Naan for just $5!! Along with many other great specials like an $8 specialty cocktail which usually is $12. Then two weekends ago I went there late in the evening for a girl's night out and bought one of their wonderful packages. The music was great, crowd was lively and clearly enjoying themselves and all the staff is very friendly. Overall this is a great place that you can go to for anything from a romantic dinner to a fun night out with the girls. Highly recommended.

It's a nice looking place but a complete rip off. I don't mind paying a small fortune for a rooftop bar or other special place but slightly fancy decor doesn't cut it in my book. The servers were hanging on our shoulders pressuring purchases of their over priced drinks but didn't know the beer selection. On the main floor there was a tap system protruding from the bar but I was informed there was no draft beer. Then why the taps? There was also an insect sighting in the mens room. I won't be back and won't be recommending it to anyone.

It's a nice looking place but a complete rip off. I don't mind paying a small fortune for a rooftop bar or other special place but slightly fancy decor doesn't cut it in my book.

On the main floor there was a tap system protruding from the bar but I was informed there was no draft beer. Then why the taps? There was also an insect sighting in the mens room.

Pros: nice decor

Cons: exhorbitant prices, overly aggressive servers

.

Pranna is very average, if you don't have anything else going on, then its worth a visit. The food is mediocre and the crowd is also very average. The place gets crowded with all of the people who can't get into B or C list clubs.

OK So let me tell you, this is one of the best and orginal places I have been to. But please dont take my word for it, this is a must visit place which I urge you fun lovers must experience. For some of the pros excellent cocktails all freshly made right there in front of you, excellent appetizers (you must try their variety of Satay's and Lamb sliders)... I think this is by far the biggest place in manhattan... IT IS HUGE. Now for the decor ... its a class act in the making.... again, please dont take my word ... this is something to be experienced... WOW

Pros: Service

Cons: None really, unless your ugly

While the decor is nice, its nothing special for NYC. The crowd is very Bridge and Tunnel and if you like drinking champagne out of plastic glasses, you will like this place. The line outside is a bit of a joke - its all B&T. Table reservations may get you in, but all your friends will wait for about 30 -45 minutes (even with a table) unles they show by 10 pm.

Went to Pranna this past weekend for a dinner party.
Then after dinner we moved into the lounge where we then had some bottle service, had gotten a great deal from their special bottle packages that they have going on.
Music was great,cocktail waitress was great, food was great.

Pros: Food/Service

Service was great. It's always good to see management touching tables to ensure quality assurance. The director of service, David, was sensational. We will mention Pranna to all of our friends and we will be back there again. I would highly recommend this place.

The minute I walked in, I was greeted by an amazing staff! We went to the bar and had outrageous delicious cocktails! David, the director of service introduced himself and made us feel like kings and queens! All through dinner David checked in on us to make sure everything was going smoothly!
I will definitely go back! The service is SUPERB - especially that DAVID!

My boyfriend and I went to Pranna for Valentine's Day dinner and it really was delicious. The first two cocktails that we had were fantastic and very unique to the restaurant and the food was very good. The staff was very knowledgeable and my only regret is that I did not ask how the chef recommends the duck being cooked. It was delicious nontheless but heard the waiter mention to another table exactly how each dish should be cooked. Food could be spicy at times, especially the curry dishes but if you like that kind of food then you'll love it here.

Went to Pranna for Valentine's day dinner. Had reservations at 9:30 and got seating in about fifteen minutes. I was impressed. The place was very organized. Ordered the Rose cocktail and loved it. I ordered steak and my girl friend ordered the Paneer dish. Everything was delicious. The choc chili mousse was perfect ending to the meal. Our server was very attentive and knowledgable. We loved the overall ambience service and food. The dining room was very romantic and the lounge very trendy. Best of both worlds. I highly recommend Pranna.

Went to Pranna for the restaurant week and was surprised with how good the food is. We had the drunken noodles and duck curry and for dessert the guava cheesecake. We also ordered a sample of satays which were perfectly cooked with four dipping sauces. It was really fun to eat trying each of the sauce. The cocktails were delicious and my favorite was bali eyes. After dinner we stayed in the lounge and they had a DJ spinning and the place just got mobbed within fourty five minutes. I definately recommend this place.

Great place for dinner and post-dinner drinks... I celebrated my friend's birthday this past Saturday night and we reserved a table after dinner and stayed until 4AM. It was so great to be able to do it all in one place and not get bored with the scene... I'm actually headed back for another birthday party next weekend. The place is HUGE, but you wouldn't know it from the entrance on Madison Ave. Great addition to the neighborhood and totally worth checking out.

WORST BARTENDER ever working here. I've been in the industry myself for 7 years now and I've never met someone as obnoxious as the shortie, (ERIC is it?) that works here. Been to this place only twice and BOTH times he made me want to throw my drink in his face. Whats becoming of customer service? This one here is just giving a bad rep for the rest of us. Don't waste your money.

At Pranna you are able to great great food, ambience,drinks and perfect fun night. We had a dinner reservation and they were very busy but our group of five wanted to sit in the satay lounge for cocktails and some small bites. They were very accomodating in letting us have a cocktail and holding our reservation for about twentyfive minutes. After the cocktails and few satays we went to the dining room. We ordered the whole fish, duck curry and the rib eye for two. The steak was like butter and it melted in our mouth, The sides were delicious aswell. The nan bread was garlic, cilanto and thai basil with tomato and lentil chutneys. They kept on asking us if we wanted more and it was absolutely addictive. We also had the Tom kha soup which was very good as well. We also ordered the Pranna bakery with rose water cream donuts, walnut brownies, coconut macaroons, choc chip macadamia cookies and spiced butter cake. It came with two dipping sauces which were very good. Overall Pranna was a great experience and the prices were very affordable. After dinner we stayed at the bar for some after dinner cocktails and the place was rocking. Great addition to the area.

Went to Pranna tonight and place was absolutely hopping. Great Music along with flavorful cuisine and amazing vibe. Started with the satay bar. We decided to seat at the satay bar and watch the chefs prepare the satays. Later we move into the dining which was absolutely gorgeous. We ordered the duck, prawns. lambchps and steak. Ordered two bottles of wine which were paired perfectly with th food. Had cocktails earlier like the butterfly whisper, emerald bay, maekhong and bali eyes. Loved every single cocktail. The satays were perfect with the dipping sauce and my favorite sauce was salty kaffir lime mint. We also ordered dessert like the Pranna bakery and the chcolate souffle. Both AMAZING. We met the owner and she gave a tour of the whole restaurant. She told us thata they were starting lucnh on Monday the 17th. The place is beautifula nd service was quite attentive. We paid totalof $250 for 4 people which I think is quite reasonable for this caliber of a restaurant. I will definately be back. They also a DJ playing so we stayed for after dinner drinks and dessert in the satay lounge.

Over-aggressive hostess (5 of them!) greet you at the door and escort you through the restaurant while having to repeat themselves > 3 times if they can take your coat. The music is so loud when you first walk in that I actually thought I was in the wrong place. Service was, well, horrendous. Our waiter took our order right away then we waited a good 45 minutes for our apps to arrive. Food is surprisingly good - but, the portions are tiny considering price. Don't think i'll be returning.

The owners of Pranna hope that it can be more than a pretty face, but when you walk into the two-level, 15,000-square-foot space, it's clear that looks are a substantial part of the equation. Handsome dark wood tables, white walls with…
