I've been to both Azya in midtown and in Soho, I would say I prefer this one. There is outdoor seating for when it's nice out and it's spacious for a NY bar. The food is delicious, and the chocolate martinis are to die for. I had the artichoke hearts which were amazing! They also serve gourmet chocolates here - Xiocolati and Jacques Torres.

I wanted to like Ayza a lot more than I did. After all, what's not to love about wine and chocolate? I came on Valentine's Day, which is a great time to indulge in wine and chocolate. But, in the end, both my companion and I went away feeling like we would have had a better experience at The Chocolate Room in Brooklyn. There was nothing specifically wrong with our evening. The staff was nice, the food quick to arrive, the wine good. It just wasn't the decadent indulgence that Chocolate Room usually is. And none of the chocolates seemed very original or special. Overall I'd rate Ayza a meh, but not because they suck, just that I wasn't engaged.

Went here for my anniversary dinner. Had some olive patte and were treated by some free sangria. My SO ordered the tomato soup, which was incredible; it was very light. My dumplings were "meh" unless you dipped it into the sauce. It sat on top of a paper napkin which covered the dumpling basket.There was also a nest of seaweed under the dumplings, which completely soaked the napkin so I found bits of napkin when I tried to eat the seaweed. The sirloin was cooked perfectly but the entree was pretty small for what you pay. For dessert, my chocolate covered strawberries were on top of a napkin again. I'm a foodie and my SO is in the food business and we both agree that the random napkins on plate settings are a bit off. All-in-all decent place but not as exemplary as I hoped

I am came here for a girl's night out with my friend. Okay, truth be told I was having a bad day and wanted to gorge myself on chocolate and she was on a diet and wanted to drink away her misery. Boy, does telling the truth make me feel better. We had made a reservation for 6:30pm, but showed up around 6:20pm the place was not really packed as it is really tiny to begin with. Apparently, they couldn't find our reservations even though I had a print out confirmation. We had to wait for 15 minutes even though there was plenty of seats. Olga, our waiter wasn't very friendly but did her job efficiently. They bought out our food quickly and when we requested her attention came over quickly. We ordered the Fireball Chicken, which was delicious and Grilled Baby Shrimp, which was just grilled shrimp on top of mangoes, nothing really exciting. My friend got the BBQ Pork panini which she enjoyed a lot, I got the chicken panini with cranberry mayo which wasn't that great. I am not a huge fan of cranberry. I had asked to have it removed and regular mayo on the side but I got neither. The waitress said all of the food is pre-made and apparently they couldn't do regular mayo on the side either. The desserts were pretty tasty. The warm molten chocolate cake was divine and the chocolate flights I had were good. They had good variety of chocolates to choose from. My friend got a couple glasses of Spanish red wine which she enjoyed and I got the Hot Chocolate on a stick. It was tasty but it wasn't very sweet and had a hint of cinnamon. I tend to like my hot chocolate diabetes sweet. At the beginning of the meal, they did give us a small tasting of warm mulled wine which I wasn't very fond of but was a nice touch. Overall, the food is okay but I rather just coming for the drinks and desserts [that includes the chocolate!]

I am a native New Yorker and will keep to the directness of how we are known to be :) Drinks: Excellent wine and chocolate bar! They offer wine and chocolate pairings that redefine food porn! Food: Jacques Torres chocolate. Need I say more ;) Space: Very cozy and sleek wine bar that is open and conducive to mixing and mingling. The bar is small, yet intimate. The tabled area is a lot more open. Scene: Date night. Romantic. Single scene. Service: Really attentive and friendly staff.

A little small, but a good spot. Very nice dimly lit setting and a great variety of chocolates.
