When we arrived the place was pretty packed. We thought we hit the jackpot, but were quite disappointed by the end of the night. Especially with our waiter. It was a while until we got our drinks (which was excellent - Chardonnay and Merlot) and it took even longer before we got our food. Our waiter was pretty much non-existent.... More

I was walking around the city with a friend who has come in from Los Angeles, it was early and we were hungry, so I thought I would try ARTE Cafe and was delighted to find they had a prix fixe menu if you get there before six which we did. I started with the Caesar salad, my main course... More

Stopped in close to closing time, and had good food and very good service. I was surprised to find bacon to snack on in glasses. I ordered lasagna, and it was very good. Biggest martini I ever had!

Fairly prompt in honoring our reservation and the restaurant did honor our request for a round table - 5 adults. Short wine list, mediocre service But delicious food.

The food and service was second to none, the manager Peter was so helpful to us arranging our meal from the UK. We couldn't fault them at all. And the cheesecake is to die for x

This is a popular dining area on the west side, and they completed a renovation over the summer. Something has happened ,however and management does not appear to be in house or overseeing the operations.. The restaurant was about half full,when we were seated around 7. No one came to take our drink orders or even offer menus till we... More

This is nice place that is off the major avenues, where places may be more tailored for one-time visitors. This place seems to cater more to locals, and so it has a greater interest in providing an experience for which customers would return. The food was quite good, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We ate outdoors as... More

Staying in Upper West Side

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.
