Arte is a great place and the food is always fairly good, but the cocktails are priced as if they thought they were a club in the meatpacking district. A $15 martini at a dinner place on the UWS is preposterous! Go enjoy the food, but never order one of their ridiculously priced drinks.

went for brunch with a few people. physically the resturant is nice looking and pleasant, in a nice neighborhood. The menu had a decent selection and you can add $14 to your brunch item if you want unlimited cocktails. Due to time being late, I did not opt for that. The food was so so. Not bad but not great. Just average I guess. They serve a muffin to start-it was a good muffin, but texture a little off for me. I ordered a panini which i thought was a pretty safe bet, but the bread was tasteless. My corner deli makes better ones. The ice tea was over brewed and horrible. Everyone else had same comment about food. Nothing special, at least the brunch selections. basically, OK but nothing great. The service was so-so. it seems like a lot of wait staff just doesn't speak or understand English well. I don't think I would return. too many great places in the city with tastier food. It's not expensive, but that doesn't compensate for bland food. Maybe if I was in the area I might stop by for a coffee or drink, but that's about it. I would rather spend my money elsewhere

Today we made our 3rd and very likely last trip to Arte Cafe. The food was decent but the service was poor - most notably, when we saw a waiter dip his hands in a water pitcher and fix his hair! We were disgusted and almost walked out of the restaurant before our food even arrived.

It took 20 minutes for the waitress to hand us menus. It took a half hour for the first round of drinks to arrive. Food took forever. I ordered a medium-rare burger; it was burnt to a crisp.

impressive italian, will definitely return...short ribs were fork tender wines well priced and value supreme for the neighborhood. the alfresco patio makes for a very special evening.

The food used to be good, if you're lucky on a good night, you'll get a great meal. I stopped going here and every once in a while I try it out again. The other night I ordered delivery. The fish was not fresh, and overcooked. They are usually not accomodating so I am done with them.

I just ordered from Arte knowing they had an ASAP delivery on the web. I figured it would get here within the next hour or so. It was delivered almost immediately! The food is very fresh and quite good! I would order again. Although I did order enough for the next 3 days!
