Aureole Bar Room or Orso for Pre-Theater this Friday night

We are leaving for NYC tomorrow and I still don't know where to dine pre-theater Friday night. I have narrowed it down to a 5:30 reservation at the Bar Room at the Aureole or Alto at the same time.

Which would you recommend taking into consideration quality of the food and service. I was not sure whether Alto would be more enjoyable for a leisurely dinner as opposed to pre-theater. I want to make a decision tonight as we leave tomorrow morning.

Any help would be appreciated.

  1. Whoops! I meant Alto, not Orso. We had been thinking of Orso as well, but decided on Alto. Sorry for any confusion.
    Any advice???

      I held off responding since I wasn't sure whether you meant Alto or Orso; thanks for the clarification. I've heard great things about Alto.

    2. We went to Aureole recently after dinner at Falai. We had a cheese plate, espresso, etc. so I can't really comment on the entrees. Service was excellent and bar area was comfortable. We plan to go back for dinner soon so if you have dinner there please report back on your experience. BTW I believe Sandy is the assistant manager. He used to be at Falai.
