Sojourn is a gem on the upper east side. From the tucked away entrance, to the enclave like design and the rustic feel of the space, you feel like you're transported to a totally different new place. The staff is really kind and welcoming and...More

I had lunch at Sojourn on 79th Street recently. The gnocchi was good but not exceptional. Service was prompt and friendly, and even though the restaurant was less than half full, the noise level was very high.

I've been going here for at least 5 or 6 years. The food is amazing and always fresh. Lately I've noticed that it's been busier during the week so I would suggest a reservation. The organic half chicken is a life saver!!!

The acoustics here are horrible. Don't go if you want to have a conversation! That being said, the food is GREAT, service is wonderful and the prices are reasonable for NY. Just go with folks that you don't want to listen to!
