Like the last reviewer, I really want to like this place. The food for the most part is excellent. At least it could be. They have great ideas and options, but they just fall short on carrying it out. Take the blueberry wings for example: Hello? Blueberry wings?! Who would have ever thought? It tastes so good....IF there was plenty of sauce on it, but no, they just drizzle a little bit of sauce over a pile of wings leaving half of them completely untouched by the sauce, so you're left with expensive deep fried chicken wings. It seems like everything was like that- could have been so good, but something so careless ruined it. Also, the female staff tends to neglect you if you are of the same same sex. Everytime I go in Im waiting and waiting on our server because she's flirting with a male patron. I want to say, "Hey. Flirt with me or at least take my order and I'll tip you! You dont even need to flirt, just take my order already"

I really wanted to like 181 Cabrini. I'm a big believer in supporting neighborhood establishments, but I won't be returning. My pork sandwich was dry, my husband's dish was bland and with so many inexpensive options in the neighborhood, I can't justify the expense of our meal. An arugula salad for $12 in a restaurant without working air conditioning? I don't think so.

Great atmosphere, good dining experience. Very unique menu makes 181 a must to visit. Each bartender has their own style and drinks that they make well. A great addition to the Heights.

i love this place! the food is tasty and the people there (customers and staff) are nice! it's great neighborhood hangout just to grab a drink at the bar or go out for a nicer dinner without having to go downtown. the owner also hangs out there regularly and he's a really nice guy who knows his customers. i think this place definitely improved the neighborhood!

I've gone to this restaurant twice. Both times there was no menu available or if there was one (this was morning), there was little on the menu. Once, I went just to see if I could buy a muffin and coffee and that seemed impossible! The woman behind the bar was not all that helpful and the truth is that because of the either disorganized or indifferent staff, I've never been able to try their food! It's pretty bad if you can't get in the front door to even see what you can eat!

One of the better places in this neighborhood. Food and service are always good. The atmosphere is not great, it needs some help in that department. Over all a good place to have a drink and a quality meal. They have a good bar with good cocktails too.
