    Mediocre food

    Cafe Evergreen was well looked after when it opened many years ago. Today it is a regrettable restaurant due to its worn out, ripped-fabric on all the furniture, and the greasy oversalted food. Chicken dishes will be served with rubbery pieces of chicken that could not have possibly been cooked within the previous six hours. Steak dishes in sauce can be tender or tough, and the sauces may be pleasant or unsavory. Where is the quality control? This is also a very overpriced restaurant, and for no reason, since you are eating in a room that's dated and in a state of frozen fall-apart. Stay away from moo-shu chicken; it is way too salty. Stay away from chicken altogether. Pineapple rice is also a waste of time. And it's too bad they don't serve roast pork. You'll get fried rice with bland gray slices of pork. Your safest bet is seafood, and at another restaurant.

    this is the best

    This is the best Chinese restaurant outside Chinatown (and few in Chinatown can compare.) The people are informative and pleasant, the food is superb. I've been coming here for more than 20 years and I cannot understand what people are complaining about. It's not that they remember me. Even my first time it was great.

    Best Dim Sum in NYC!

    Having grown up in Hong Kong, I'm particularly picky about my dim sum. Cafe Evergreen has the most authentic, refined dim sum in the city, in fact, in the U.S. I've had dim sum all over the U.S...Evergreen is very hard to beat. It surpasses all the restaurants I've tried in Chinatown and in Queens which tend to be too greasy for me. I only wish Evergreen has as big a variety as the Chinatown restaurants but their food quality is far superior. I'd take quality over quantity for sure. Certainly, the atmosphere and service at Evergreen is also more relaxed and less rushed than the Chinatown/Queens restaurants. I wish Evergreen would do dimsum every day!

    Excellent Dim Sum

    Quality dim sum and great variety. Best you will find on the UES. They offer very nice seafood dishes and Cantonese style food. Fast delivery and very nice staff.

    Disappointing

    My first dim sum lunch here will be my last. I found the food extremely disappointing. Turnip cakes were over-fried with a too-crunchy exterior and offered no little tasty morsels within, unlike any other turnip cakes I've ever had. Crab claw, too, was over-fried. Sticky rice was tasteless, no doubt because the meat within was all of a bland kind. Spicy dumplings were tasteless meatballs encased in too thick a skin, but swimming in a sauce that was far too soupy and way too chili-spicy for comfort. No subtle tastes here. No finesse to the food. Surely there's better dim sum somewhere in Manhattan? Is it just the Chinatown Brasserie?

    damn good dim sum

    I am a dim sum fanatic. Outside of Chinatown, Cafe Evergreen is by far the best restaurant for gourmet and close to authentic dim sum. I read the other reviews and for people to complain about whether their tea is warm, they missed out on the FOOD. Arrive earlier in the day and your food will be made fresh. You can even watch as they prepare the food in the kitchen. I would highly suggest the Grand Marnier Shrimp with candied walnuts and of course my ultimate favorite, Beef Rice Noodle!

    fact

    basically the best chinese you can get in the UES, meaning in the east 70's. Its not flushing, its not super authentic, but here in the east 70's its the best. And its pretty good! I have lived here for 12 years. Previous reviewers that complain, are simply people that always complain.
