    Try the namesake steak—Italian for “rib eye”—at Costata chophouse. Aged for 60 days, the tomahawk rib is forged in the raging fire of a 1,900-degree broiler. It’s one of our best 100 dishes of 2013 Read more

    Lobster al forno ($46) was an oreganata-style masterpiece. Insalata verde ($15) brought romaine-like, little gem lettuce to life with pitch-perfect lemon-mustard vinaigrette. Read more

    Ribeye is dramatically presented with a prehistoric-looking bone and rosemary sprigs for an “Italian” touch. Start with White’s marvelous minced razor clam crudo ($21). Read more

    Michael White's fifth New York restaurant, spread over three stories in Soho, is one part Italian, one part steakhouse, pasta and crudo alongside steaks and chops.

    The namesake costata is a massive portion of aged rib eye for two, and duos can also order porterhouse and bone-in strip cuts. And filet fans should consider the menu's butcher block option,

    Loved the scallop crudo, pastas (rigatoni & cavatelli), and the artichokes. NY Strip was excellent, especially with the side of truffle butter. Bartender prep of my Manhattan was incredible

    The Costata Burger has a dry-aged beef blend w/ bacon marmalade & cheese. Though height made it fall apart on me, the flavor was excellent. The dry-aged meat knocked my socks off. Read more

    Amazing food, great service, great location. They also have a good wine selection. You can only have this good Italian food in a really good restaurant in Italy. Very impressive.

    Costata ribeye for two = perfection. Flavorful, perfect char, slightly smoky aroma. Farotto w/bone marrow! Garganelli alla famma! Crostatina = dessert. Royal blush cocktail. My kinda happy meal!

    Costata means “ribeye” in Italian. Colorado lamb chops (all dry-aged for 28 days or more), pan-roasted swordfish, prosciutto-and-truffle garganelli and more than 500 wines.

    Michael White's slant on the steak house is fantastic. Terrific steak without the hassle of dealing with the midtown business steakhouse scene. Get the ribeye and don't forget an afogato for dessert.

    Steak for two is fantastic. Add in some oysters and cocktails and it's a rich and delightful meal.

    Just a few months old, people are starting to rave about the Tomahawk Rib-eye. Crisp on the outside is followed by a buttery and rare cooked inside that will convert any lifelong medium-well devotee.

    Great filet mignon. Not a fan of the menu overall and the waiter couldn't explain any items on the menu. Eeessshh for an 'upscale' restaurant

    Go big or go home. Tomahawk rib eye. Go for it. Hen of the woods and carrots as sides. Yes. Yes. Yes.

    Costata (tomahawk ribeye) disappointing but pastas delicious and worth repeat visits. Romaine cacio & pepe another highlight.

    The fried bone marrow salad and tomahawk steak are winners. Save room the hazelnut tart and semifreddo!

    Cavatelli is not that good. That's right I said it. Garganelli is where it's at. And the filet is damn good if you want to do the solo steak thing.

    Get the tomahawk steak. Uni pasta is superb as well. Killer Manhattans too.

    Steak, steak, steak. And one of the largest Amaro liqueur selections in NYC.

    Amazing! Try the Amberjack crudo, agnolotti, ribeye, & crispy red potatoes.

    Beef filet was extraordinary. Some post launch kinks (why the 90s alt rock soundtrack?) but I'm sure they will work it out.

    Steak for two. Florentina (porterhouse). Do it. Even if you're solo.

    NY Strip was excellent, most appetizers and sides were decent but nothing to write home about. worth the steak, though.

    Get the tomahawk rib-eye for two, pass on the sides and deserts, they are too small, too expensive and non-distintive.

    Unworthy of Michael White's name: the space is uninspired and the food is mediocre. Artichoke side was decent. Burger too.
