Good food and the pre-fix menu was very well priced with good options.
Great neighborhood restaurant. Been coming here for years. Salads, pizza, pasta, all excellent.
We love everything except the seating. The chairs are all terrible, the most uncomfortable ever and all 4 of us agreed.
I met a good friend here for Saturday brunch (much less noise and hubbub than during Sunday brunch) and really enjoyed it. My goat cheese and spinach omelette was tasty and too ample to finish. Her burrata salad looked luscious. So did the various Eggs Benedicts passing by. The service was a little lax (we had to flag down a waitress with great effort just to get salt, butter, and a coffee refill). But it was very pleasant, and the dining room is pretty. We’ll be back!
I had an 11:00 reservation for Saturday brunch and for the first half hour or so was their only customer! The service and food were both very good!
We had a lovely evening. The food was very good, we all enjoyed our meal. The service was wonderful.
We found it noisy for a while, due to a very loud table, but I guess there isn't much you can do about that. We will definitely go there again.
Excellent food and service. However, the noise level in the restaurant is so loud that one must shout to be heard. And that necessity adds to the noise level. How about some fabric on the walls to blunt the noise and more room between tables?
The previous page has "energetic" as the only choice for the loud noise, but it is frankly far too loud and ultimately uncomfortable and even unhealthy.
always consistent in food and drink and this time the service was good which was a pleasant change. and always enjoy the eggplant parmigiana and the little muffins at brunch.
Have gone many times, but this time we waited almost an hour between appetizers and mains without explanation or apology. Bread pork chop was too dry to eat. Also much louder than usual. Must have been an off night (I hope).
Food was delicious! We had the Cacio e Pepe and the salmon. Waitress was great too!
The table servers forgot to bring us bread though served everyone around us and the drinks from the bar took an unusually long time. Our dinner came just after we got the drinks.
We do really like this place and will come back again!
I love the ambiance of the bar and the dining room. Service was great, the wine was delightful, and our meal was fresh and delicious. We'll definitely be back to sit outside on the patio.
I eat at Arte Café a lot. Waiter was great; they all are, but this one was exceptional. Thanks for good caring staff altogether.
Will be back
Parma Pizza is excellent
we were lucky this time as there were not too many diners and so it was fairly quiet so that we could carry on a pleasant conversation with our business associates. the food is always consistent if only the service was more welcoming and attentive.
Good food and friendly service at a reasonable price
perfect restaurant for dinner if planning on seeing a show at the Beacon
The young man who served us , Jose B.
was very attentive .
I was a bit surprised they didn’t have special cups for water for kids. Our glasses seemed a bit smudged too, could have been cleaner looking. The menus were also stained.
Service was slow and food not as good as usual
Nice food. Bloody awful service. Waiters slammed plates and barely spoke.
Have been a loyal customer at Arte Cafe since the week it opened. Have never had a bad meal or a bad experience. The food has always been ideal.
The service was professional and friendly and the meal was delicious! This is my favorite neighbor hood restaurant. It can be both casual and “special” — a real gem.
Very good food food. As others have noted a tad loud. Good was slightly delayed but waiter took care of us and made sure to apologize. Very good experience will be returning.
Great place and staff! Delicious food.
The last time I was there with friends and it was lovely. This time the food was mediocre and the paper on the table cloths is a real turn off.
always enjoy the eggplant parmigiana and the little muffins at brunch are a delicious treat. we were lucky this time with the noise level being tolerable which can often be a problem here.
I got injured at this restaurant! They have a non- sense system that forces the bathroom doors to close quickly. I was with my 3 year old son getting out of the bathroom when the door abruptly closed and hit me right on my face. I have now a hughe bump, bruise and swelling on my face. I spoke with the manager and explained what happened and how having a system like this in the bathroom doors doesn’t make any sense and is a hazard, and his response was “no one has gotten hurt before”. Well... I got visibly hurt! The staff was very nice and brought me ice. But management said they were not planning to remove this door system!! It’s so irresponsible to have a system like this that closes bathroom doors very quickly on people without any warning. Thank God the door closed on me and not on my 3 year old! We are not coming back.
Absolutely delicious food, and many options to choose from on the menu. We can't wait to go back!
The interior is very attractive and comfortable. The food is authentic and served hot, what more do you want in a meal?
Delicious food but mediocre service. The waiters and busboys seem bored and some don’t even make eye contact.
Reliably good. Service was sketchy, as there was only 1 waiter. Of course, we were there at an "off " hour.
Staff always very nice and accommodating. Truffle French fries are the best!!!!
This is a great place for groups. Large space for New York with good food.
Great restaurant we frequent often
Found piece of metal in food
if they spent a modest sum on acoustic ceiling tiles, the grim level of noise would be lower. a bit more expenditure on hard surface walls would also make the place more enjoyable. food: we selected fish, served fairly cold but vegetables were well prepared. in sum: nothing special other than the level of noise that's enough to chase this client away.
Arte Cafe was as good as it always is, and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The cocktails were great, as was the food and wait service.
Great neighborhood gem. The brunch is the best deal in the neighborhood!
A real asset to the neighborhood. I've been coming here for years and the food is always good and the atmosphere lively and attractive.
Our server was beyond rude. He began clearing the table while we were still eating the food on the plate, reaching across us as we dined to begin removing our plates.
We asked a question about the menu and the server snapped that we should read the menu.
Totally shocking. last time I will go there. Ditto my dining companions.
It was a lovely evening and the service was fast.
