Love their decor, however, the service and food quality didn't live up to our expectation. We ordered the following: 1.Duck vindaloo arepa--Over priced for the 4 mini not so flavorful open-faced sandwiches; 2.Coconut chili mussels --This

This is possibly the worst restaurant I've been to in my 12 years in NY. The decor and my cocktail were fairly good, but that's about it.

The food was atrocious; simultaneously overly-spiced and completely bland. They clearly add the spices too late in the cooking process for any of the flavor to sink in. We ordered 3 appetizers and a meal each; none were good.

Additionally, though the place was half-empty, we had to wait 20 minutes between being served water and being asked if we would like a cocktail.

If you twisted my arm, I may consider returning to the downstairs lounge area for drinks only -- but I'd need to have a good reason.

We've been wanting to go since At Vermilion opened. Heard about and had seen the space... just lovely. Had heard and read mixed reviews, but wanted to try such an interesting menu... figured that not all people enjoy fusion.

We went a week ago, on a weeknight. Only a few tables were occupied. It's a nice space, and large. With all the empty tables we wondered how long this will last (could be slow due to holiday week?) By the time the food came it was clear this place is in trouble.

The food was just awful and disappointing. We got the red meat tasting menu, a few appetizers, and lots of sides, so had a good variety to sample. The appetizers were tasty, but the rest just wasn't good. And we really wanted to like it!

On the plus side, the service was above par, so we didn't hate our experience entirely, just the food.

The restaurant was almost empty when we dined there. There were flies around us, and the food was gross-I had the lobster, which came out 1 hour later and half way frozen!Their food has too many spices w/no direction, portions were small, served on very big (empty) plates-hours after you order it, they never place it all at once on the table,so some plates are cold by the time someone else gets their food - horrible!! I never had a pleasant experience there. We also had a chance to speak with the owner and her husband - they were both very rude and proud people. I will not go back there, and I certainly do not recommend this restaurant unless you want crappy food and service, and want to be kicked our as soon as you receive your entree (hours after you order it).

I have to admit, I was really surprised at the below reviews. I have been to At Vermilion twice; once for dinner about 2 weeks ago and once for drinks and apps at the bar last night. Both times were a great experience for me. Was the food to die for? No but I still really loved the Artichoke pakoras and find the rest of their food very interesting and enjoyable. The staff, from the waiter to the bartender, were fantastic both times I went to this place and very attentive. It wouldnt surprise me if the owner/manager read some of these reviews and made some major changes by the time I started going.

Had dinner on a sunday night. Knowledgeable waiter, good service overall. Food was interesting. It was as if they took a bunch of indian spices and threw them together. Artichoke pakoras and strip steak were delicious. Ginger pomegranate martini was also good. For dessert we had the chocolate cake that came with a weird tasting blueberry sorbet. The best part of the whole night was that Salman Rushdie was sitting at the table next to ours.

Food is awful. Our waiter was fine at the beginning of the meal, but disappeared as the evening wore on and we never saw him again. Last but not least, the ladies' room was filthy with water and dirt on the floor and an overflowing waste can. This restaurant will be closed within months and they deserve to fail. Horrible.

All 5 stars are given by some person from the restaurant. The place is really HORRIBLE. All marketing and wining about recession etc, but the food is really bad. No doubt its always empty.

$16 for a glass of inexpensive redwine. That's all I have to say. It's disgusting the prices they think they can get away with. The place will be closed by April 15, 2009

My boyfriend and went to this new outlet for some drinks. Tried some of the tapas. Wasn't that impressive.The waiter told us to recommend some very good Sous chef to train the Main Chef. We initially felt the server was kidding,but no. Strange.In truth the server wasn't so pleased with the tapas too.
Really funny.

Perfect example of contemporary food and decor. The food is extraordinary and full of surprises. I was there for my anniversary and the overall experience blew me out, right from my amuse. The lychee passion fruit granita to mysore lamb chop, duck vindaloo arepa, spicy lamb shank, perfectly cooked new york strip left us craving for more. Would have loved to try their entire menu only if we were not full up to the brim. Will definitely go back for experiencing their remaining menu.

After having heard from a friend we decided to chq .This place out. We were 6 of us ,all of us tried the cocktails.I tried the so energetically called Peni pori margarita. Disgusting taste. How could any bartender in good lounge / club ever serve such a drink. My friends decided to eat so I too tried the dishes . All the attempts of using a big selection of components have been tried but none of us were happy with the food part at all. It looks good except the jumping men.That gives the place a rediculous feel. A lot of loose strings hanging all over,if put together well ,decor,service and most importantly the food....All of us agreed ,the restaurant has not been put together properly.

I dined at "At Vermilion" and all I can say was that I was totally blown away. The ambiance is trendy and chic. The drinks - my favourite Pear Jalapeno and cucumber mint, were unexpected and delicious. The Tapas looked amazing and tasted even better - loved the duck vindaloo arepa and the artickokes. The entree's didn't let us down- the skirt steak, I am going back just for that, the tamarind ribs and the lamb shank gassi were cooked to perfection. It was an amazing culinary experience and I will be a regular there.

Went in with a lot of hope and fun. Impressed with the decor not the food. The food idea is not bad but what works in Chicago was good by Chicago Standards.The Layon of the 21st century has needs, levels of excellence , stamina and perceiverience much beyond even the old world institutions. Hugs,touches and kisses etc etc included by the owner in FEEDBAG ,a bit too much obvious for media attention. Here We no longer judge a restaurant by gimics. Experience is the good word here.Just 4 years of cooking is far away from calling oneself a rockstar.We weretold the owner keeps looking for new Sous Chefs for every few days to assist and retrain the Chef .An interesting new approach.Its not a sin to say one needs more experience in the cooking end. theBig ideas need better hands in big city.

Offering a blend of Latin and Indian cuisines, this Eastside restaurant is a cavernous, steel-imbued space (barring one bold red-leather wall behind the downstairs bar). A giant mesh chandelier and two-story chain waterfall add to the…
