Zero Stars. Our reservation was for 8pm. We arrived at 8pm. We ordered at 8:10. We started eating our entrees at 9:20!! Unacceptable wait regardless of the following bull crap. \r
The food was fine. Nothing special. $144 for 1.5 scallops,

Naha's been around forever...for good reason. Ever evolving menu, focus on seasonal ingredients, airy & elegant space. Great for a splurge.

Went to Naha with a business associate the other day, and was incredibly disappointed with the level of cuisine. We ordered a very sub-par eggs benedict which lacked both creativity and inspiration. The halibut was a pathetic execution

I love Naha! Very elegant New American food. All of the soup creations are unique and delicious and the entrees are inventive yet approachable. Friendly waitstaff, astounding food and a wonderful ambiance make this one of my favorite

Naha has a surprisingly good burger for an upscale restaurant. I think they only offer it at lunch. I don't remember what my dining companions ate, but I think everyone enjoyed their meals.

Pros: Not much to say...

Cons: Too many olives in dishes, perfect for the Vegetarian, not for the diner who wants to eat

.

Avoid this place at all cost. After being encouraged to try this "foodies dream" I did, only to be let down twice. I've experienced it both during lunch and for private dining, and both experiences I left thinking, I should have gone

Pros: Private Dining can accomodate a number of guests

Cons: Food, service, prices

I should have listened to the majority of the reviews in this section and gone elsewhere. Bring a food dictionary if there is one out there, you will need it to get through the menu to figure out what you are going to be eating. The menu

It is lovely inside. And it ends there. The menu is impossible to read (and I am in my early 40's, not a Senior Citizen and I am saying that!) and the food is impossible to understand. The chef seems to go out of his way to put unusual

Pros: Art on the walls, the plates on the tables, the wine.

Cons: Food is awful and expensive.

Food was mediocre from app to main to dessert - nothing was very tasty.
Waiter was borderline rude - very passive aggressive. In addition, we waited at least an hour btwn our app and our main.

The skillfully crafted seasonal menu offers exquisite dishes. Try the foie gras appetizer - it is a permenant fixture on the menu and always incredible! The service is friendly, knowledgeable, and accomodating. In addition, the wine

Naha - please that's a joke. I've been to all best restaurants in the city. I've worked in the business so I know the business. But Naha is a joke!!! And is very overprised, especially when you have to pay $38.00 for a filet that doesn't

Naha's cool, calming and subdued interior design sets the stage for the creative dishes featuring fresh, American ingredients. In the course of two dinners and a lunch here, I have not been disappointed with the cuisine or the service.
