Had a dinner party at Pescatore on 2nd ave and 51st for 17 people- children and adults. They have an upstairs dining room which accomodated us perfectly. It was our own private room, for which we were not charged. And they dedicated 2 waiters to us for the entire evening.
As for the food, everyone was pleased. I had a salad of endive, blue cheese and walnuts that was quite delicious. As a main course I had one of the specials- charred cod over spinach. Also tasted some of the kid's pizza. The pastas got rave reviews, one of them being linguine and clams, the other being one with a meat sauce.
Obviously, I only have great things to say about this place. And along with all of this great food and great service, the price was right! For this party of 17 (4 being kids under age 9), the grand total with tip was $665 - and this amount included tons of wine! I was so pleased, I gave each of our waiters an additional $80 each. I will certainly be back, and would definitely recommend this spot for a dinner party.
