    Bottoms Up

    The Bloody Mary here is basically the best I've had. I hate a thin Bloody Mary or one that uses cheap vodka. Here they have a flambe show and use jalapeno infused vodka - I'm impressed. I happen to think most of their cocktails are killer... word from the wise: you know there is a wait, come early and indulge with a liquid appetizer

    Not recommended

    Hearing about how 'trendy' this place once was...we decided to give it a try...who knew that there would still be an hour wait even though there were empty tables...So, after waiting for almost an hour, we complained to the male host who was rude & not helpful. It should have been a sign...cause once seated, the food was not good.

    Long wait, but worth it

    This is one of my favorite New York restaurants. There's almost ALWAYS a wait, sometimes as much as an hour, so you have to be prepared for that. I've never had any food here that was less than excellent; the fries were iffy but they changed their recipe and now they're as good as everything else. The macaroni and cheese is an experience. I also recommend the blackberry lemonade.

    Definitely Not Your High School Lunchroom

    Went today for lunch, and I was REALLY impressed. While the decor is nothing to write home about, and the noise level is pretty high, the food and service made up in a big way. I arrived at 12:40 early and the place was already pretty packed, but the hostess seated me immediately, even after I told her I was not expecting my friend until 1:00. The waiter came over immediately, and was totally charming; he continued throughout the meal, making smiling recommendations, refilling my coffee without being asked, etc. The food was excellent: a wonderful heirloom tomato salad with burrata, excellent calamari, and fabulous mac and cheese. They have nice outdoor seating, too.

    Bring patience

    We just had a very mixed experience at Cefeteria: It is understandable that a place will have a 20-30 min wait on a busy night, but while we were waiting at the bar, we could not help but notice empty tables that were being filled in slow motion. The slowness continued when we found ourselves in a nomansland surrounded by 3 servers who cleraly did not think we were sitting at "their" table. Slow service continued, and when we complained, the waiter answered in a snippy tone: "Well, that's what happens when you get an appetizer". Water and drinks were never refilled, the salad was drenched in vinegar, because half of the dressing (which was sitting on the side) had found its way into it anyway. When we finaly wanted to pay, I ended up having to go to the cash register, because nobody wanted to pick up our credit card after a good 10 minutes. The food? The Mac attack was remarkably good, the burger was juicy, but we ended up spending more than 2h to have a shared appetizer, a burger and a salad.

    The place is wretched living on past...way past..glories. The service is completely indifferent. Definitely an idea whose time has gone.
