Staff is friendly but not terribly knowledgeable. Food is pretty to look at but lacking in distinction. Prices are high.

We went to the Gastronomie because my friend from Croatia worked at this place during the holidays. At Gastronomie I've eaten the most amazing carrot cake ever! Must try! But also, the rest of the food is delicious. Good memories.

A lovely deli style place in upper west side, great selection of cold and hot food, wonderful dishes to choose from, quiet area at the back which has wifi which i found in Manhattan is quite rare. Open until 8pm most days.

I knew this place was going to be excellent the moment I stepped through the door with my mother and 4-year old son around 9:30 AM and smelled the delicious food being prepared for lunch. This is a gourmet deli, store, and restaurant all of...More

The food was awsome, the place is clean and they were really nice! I recommend sitting in the balcony, to watch new yorkers walking down the streets. They serve lunch, ice cream, deserts and a lot of other things!

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,
