The restaurant as you walk in has a display of mouth-watering deserts to serve from 2 to 20 of all size tempting cakes, but that is just the beginning - the menu variety has all types of salads, soups, pastas, and fish. The restaurant is appropriate for both couples on a date or a Sunday evening family event. One can... More

We took our out-of-town friend here for a late lunch and were delighted to learn that we could order appetizers big enough for a full meal. We had delicious soups, eggplant, and salads, and great coffee along with a plate filled with all kinds of cookies--delicious! The place is quiet at that time of day and we had perfect seating...

We made the right choice to sit at one of the tables in the vestibule which offered a good vantage point from which to observe the denizens NOT seated in a warm cafe on a rainy New York weekday. Although the room's acoustics weren't fab, the inner space was definitely noisier with lots of gabbing girlfriends meeting for brunch. (Easier... More

This is a great place with two different dining areas. One area is brick-walled and a lovely ambiance. the other is glass-enclosed along the sidewalk. Both are great. The food is excellent and we ate there twice on a 10-day visit.

We had a delicious kosher meal here and they were kind enough to let us linger for a while afterward. Both soups were delicious as was the ahi tuna nachos. The star was the plain cheesecake...but there was nothing plain about it. I'd eat here again.

We hosted a Sheva Brachot here and enjoyed the food, service, and the care MMFF took in making it lively and lovely. We also hosted a large brunch and found the same. When it is crowded some of the tables can be really noisy. Reservations are a big help, otherwise wait can be long.

Once I got there there was a 35 min wait. I waited with a friend got seated, then waited 5 mins for menus. The food would've been more enjoyable if the place wasn't so packed. I suggest calling and making sure it's not to crowded before going.

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
