If you are looking for a really modern quiet place to grab a few drinks with friend then this is the place to meet. However the food was bland, I ordered the fish and the crust was burnt and wasn't seasoned at all. My date had the James Chicken special which he said was not good and to drown it in ketchup.

Wasn't totally crazy over it, but it's the best so far in the neighborhood

I wasn't blown away but the food was good and it was a nice quiet place to come and have brunch with a friend.

I live in the neighborhood and have been here a number of times. The food is really good, definitely the tastiest on the 181st and 187th street blocks (though don't go in expecting it to equal per se or anything like that). There's also pretty good value on the menu with the chili, chicken, and nightly special options. The eggs benedict at brunch are also really good, and the happy hour goes until 8, so there is time to go after work. Not sure if I would come up to 181st street specifically for this place, but if you live in the area, it's definitely worth a look.

Whether it's breakfast, lunch, dinner or drinks this is a great place to meet friends/family in the neighborhood. I ilke the bar snacks, as well as the Tuna dinner plate. The chicken sandwich on the brunch menu rocks as well.

I am amazed at some of the other reviews here, but to each his own. In my opinion, 181 Cabrini is the best restaurant, best coffee house and best bar in the so called Hudson Heights part of the neighborhood. The staff is always friendly and the food always fresh and tasty. The coffee far surpasses the bitter swill at Starbucks and the bar is a pleasant scene to itself. And no, I do not work there or have any affiliation other than being someone who is happy to have this place in the neighborhood. This is one of the few places around that could compete for business downtown and does not leave me feeling as if I'm a captive consumer being taken for granted. The ingredients used are always fresh and high quality and the dishes range from good to very good. For the quality of the food the prices are very fair. The really great thing about 181 is that you can go any time of day, as it morphs to serve multiple different needs of the neighborhood. Coffee and pastry from Balthazar Bakery in the morning, fresh sandwiches for lunch, a wide ranging dinner menu, and then a bar scene at night. Really, what more can you ask for?

I am appauled by the comments about the restaurants in washington heights. I have lived here all of my life and have experienced amazing meals in great restaurants here. Kismat? 107? Ta cocina? Malecon? Former places like jesses place and hispaniola all displayed much better product than 181 cabrini. If you haven't found better places to eat, you just aren't looking hard enough and need to broaden your horizons in this great neighborhood!
