    Eh...OK food and value

    I finally made it to the cafeteria for dinner last night on the recommendation of friends and co-workers who have been there. The atmosphere and ambiance was very nice indeed. The food and service is a different story though. They basically stuck me in a corner and never refilled my water or asked if I wanted another drink. I ordered the Mac and cheese as an appetizer, yummy indeed. For my entree I had the Meatloaf with mashed potatoes and garlic green beans. The meatloaf was nothing to write home about and the mashed potatoes were horrible. Flavorless and watered down. Tasted like boxed mashed potatoes. The cafeteria is nothing to write home about, definitely nice to try once for the atmosphere. Overrated at best!

    Fun for lunch

    Great drinks. Ask for drink menu and ask for specialty drinks. Steak salad is great. Bathroom isn't too clean, but there's always a lot of fun people there. Great for lunch dates.

    Best Mac & Cheese Ever!

    Food was excellent. One eyed Ceasar Salad - EXCELLENT! The Calamari was rubbery, but the dipping sauces that came with it - EXCELLENT. Coconut Martinis - Again EXCELLENT, but very expensive for such a small drink. The Mashed Potatoes and Mac and Cheese were simply to DIE FOR. Waitstaff, and Hosts were EXTREMEMLY FRIENDLY, happy, and enthusiastic about the menu, when I asked them to explain the different desserts. I'd definitely GO BACK. I love it there.

    Great food, reasonably priced

    Food is awesome, drinks are great. My friends and I go all the time. For new york prices, this place is reasonably priced.

    Good eats

    i used to live in soho and found cafeteria to be a great place to go for fine food with a fun atmosphere. And if you know the great restarants in soho, that's saying something. I don't know anyone who goes here "to be seen," or to be "hip," those reviews are probably a bit off. Just for the record, the best pork chop i ever had was at cafeteria (the blue mill's was a close second). Drinks are off the hook, and prices aren't too bad either. Definitely recommended.

    The best drinks around!

    The food is pretty good (the tomato soup, chicken fried steak, and mac and cheese are my favorite menu items), but I have to admit it's the drinks that keep me coming back. I usually opt for beer over cocktails, but the wildberry mojitos at this place are unstoppable. The drinks, the lively atmosphere, and late hours make it a hip place for a date.

    Gee, I think I'm hip

    If you want to kid yourself into thinking you are a hipster, by all means, this is the place for you. Average food served up by mediocre and haughty (why? I have no idea), and good looking staff. Most locals do not consider it a serious dining destination. Don't forget to wear either all black or all white.
