    If you are cold - it's your fault

    With it crawling closer and closer towards the coldest part of the year one would think a restaurant would be a good place to warm up - but one would be wrong. Cesca has a great decor no doubt about it - but with hostesses too precious to check if one's table is ready (raising a eyebrow to properly put the guest back in their place) and a manager who is more than happy to tell you are the only one cold - you might want to go somewhere for that warm cosy feeling. Even the red wine was cold. The food however was reasonable good so I guess one will have to wait until summer to dare to go back. If you choose to go - bring an extra pashmina and some patience.

    Good Food, expensive-expect slow service

    The food can be excellent - but not all of the dishes. The service is fine, but slow. It's a little shi-shi - a little full of itself - the wine list is good. Value?, don't come here for bargain dining. Overall, it's worth it, especially considering what else is available on the UWS - but move this restaurant to the Lower East Side, and I'd walk right by it without hesitation.

    Already a Happy Memory

    Just got home from a wonderful experience. The food was delicious, the service was helpful (appropriately opinionated when asked), and the atmosphere was cozy and sophosticatedly sexy. We'll be back.

    Poor Service

    We have frequented 'Cesca about once a month for the past 6 months. I am struck by how often we are treated with cavalier service by certain of the waiters and, on one occasion, the barkeep. Though Valenti is indeed a talented chef and his creations are well executed more often than not, I hesitate to go back.

    Disappointed

    We went on the sunday eve of memorial day weekend after trying unsuccessfully to get a reservation on a sat eve. First there was no air conditioning...I guess we can say that it wasn't their fault. Then we get a waiter who was unhelpful and just plain rude. He thought he was doing us a favor by waiting on us. The food was just ok. I had the tuna which was not seared and it was soaked in this horseradish sauce, someone else had the pasta special which was ziti with sausage and meatballs for $29!

    A good experience

    Having read some of the negative reviews here, I was a little apprehensive and expected to be disappointed. We had to call a couple weeks ahead to get a reservation, and upon arrival had to turn down two tables before being seated in a decent location. After that, everything was fine, The food was top notch and the service was flawless. The restaurant was full, and deservedly so.

    Really Like 'Cesca

    We've had dinner three times at 'Cesca since it opened and are never disappointed. The food is delicious, particularly the delicious appetizers. (I had to be forcefully restrained from making a meal of them.) The waiter service was decent. The wine service was truly excellent. The room is lovely and warm, and the open kitchen is interesting. They had a nice private dining room, and a fun looking "chef's table" that I may try next week. It's great to have some new really good restaurants on the Upper West Side that are good by any standard (not just as neighborhood hotspots). I noticed some bad reviews below, and I'm surprised it's the same restaurant about which the reviewers below are speaking. Everything seemed to work so well at 'Cesca when we were there that it doesn't even seem like things would ever be uneven.
