Party of two. Highlight was the entrees; chicken piccata tender and tasty. Lowlights were : 1)pear walnut salad. Brown ends on lettuce and very tiny pieces of pear. 2)bread would have been great but was burned 3)service: body odor among a couple of staff very noticable, no explanation of price fixe menu and just didn't seem to be a lot of pride. I just think some standards need to be improved and some training done. The hostess was friendly as a positive point of note.

This was my first time dining at Arte Cafe. My husband and I made a reservation for sunday brunch and when we arrived were told their would be a bit of a wait. I was confused by this because then why would I make a reservation??? Considering we arrived a few minutes early it wouldn't be a big deal but a few minuted turned into 45 minutes. Finally we were seated and it took forever for our server to come to the table. Once he got there, he took our order right away. I ordered an omelet and to drink a champagne and my husband ordered a burger and to drink a screw driver. Our server never brought our drinks we had to flag down a bus boy who was more than happy to get us our drinks. Our food came quickly and was very good! We ordered another round of drinks through our server and he never brought them, and again we flagged down another server who brought them quickly. Honestly this place is very nice, the food is great but the service was a disaster!!! We will have the thick long and hard if we will return.

We enjoy this restaurant for their prix fixe early dinner before a performance at Lincoln Center as well as for just a nice night out. The food is well prepared. The room is lovely and the service is pleasant.

I had dinner with friends here last night. Minestrone, Ravioli, some red wine with sorbet for desert. All very good. My friends all were happy with their choices. Our table was in the main room, an attractive room with brick walls. excellent service, from a pleasant attentive waiter, The manager Marko stopped by to check up on us. I noticed he watched over the room to make sure all was in order. Fairly priced.Always busy on A Friday evening/ A fun place.

My party of 5 had only a 10 minute wait at the height of Sunday Brunchtime. Excellent food- tastefully presented. 5 of us ate for about 60$. Definitely will be going back.
