I shop at Fairway, and wanted to try the Cafe for dinner. My mistake. The waiters ranged from really nice to off putting. Pleasant informal ambiance. The food ranged from meh to pretty good. A little pricy for overall quality. Overall better than a diner...More

Informal local restaurant, good service and nice menu. Prices are reasonable, not cheap, but OK. I like the pizza. This is a local place for us and we tend to go there about once a month.

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,
