The best part of this place is the people watching that can be done from the street seating as well as the windows. The food is medicore and not worth it with so many other better restaurants in the neighborhood.

i've always loved the food but the service can be quite poor. i ordered 2 omelettes, 1 OJ, and 1 tea for delivery and got 1 omelette w/ no drinks. turned out the omelette was also the wrong kind. i called back and they had little to offer in the way of solutions (guy could barely understand what i was talking about). i returned the food and ordered from elsewhere.

The food is always great and service is phenomenal. I recommend the steak martini or the sliders. The manager Josh is always especially friendly and greets customers with a smile. The tan italian looking bartender (I think his name is Pete) makes a mean frozen mojito! Definitely would recommend ordering one if that's all you go there for. I'll definitely be returning!!!

I went here with a friend and we loved the atmosphere!! Our server was very friendly and the Champagne Sangria was exquisite!! We got a pitcher which ended up being 6 drinks in total for $19. We thought this was great value!! Its a great place to go on a nice warm day as they open window/walls to be an open air restaurant. We will def. begin to frequent this place.

Moved to Murray Hill in January, and found Cinema right away. I go there with my wife about once a week. Great place to sit at the bar, drink and nibbleor get a table in the front dining area. Since the bar is small..I think only 8-9 seats, very easy to meet/talk to other people. And the bartender Peter..really knows how to take care of his customers as does the manager Josh. I think the food is good..not great..but nice selection. I've had the pizza many times, also the sliders, veggie dim sum and nachos..and always been pleased. My daughter is a vegetarian and never has a problem finding things to eat. Yes..the wines are a bit pricy, but it's one of the few upscale bars/restaurants in Murray Hill. You'll see lots of couples and groups of women it seems like they have a core of regularswho like me, go there often, since they really take good care of you once they know you. I've also had brunch there a few times..and been pleased.

this place is weird, it's been there for a while and several years ago made a transformation to be more upscale. the menu is kind of all over the place and that leads me to view everything on it with suspicion. I had the Cobb salad and it was good. My boyfriend had a pizza which tasted like it could have been frozen. wine costs a staggering $9 for a glass. i mean, what the hell. i know this is america and all, and wine isn't considered a part of the meal as it is in other countries, but why must restaurants gouge us diners? it turned me off and I will not bother going back. it's not a fancy enough restaurant to warrant those prices. the food isn't high quality enough. our waitress was really sweet though.

Went to Cinema this summer with my wife and it was too busy, no tables available, so we decided to set at the bar. It was the best thing we did. The best Bartender i've ever seen. She was so polite, nice, funny and gave us the perfect service (Cant remember her name, but she was from Brazil). My wife had the best Cosmopolitan ever and i had the Watermelon Mojito, recommended by her. It was amazing! We had the Steak Martini for an appetizer, than my wife had a Steak Salad and i had the chicken with mashed potatoes. All recommended by her. She was right, it was delicious! Well, we were too sad when we came back last night and were told that she's no longer working there anymore. Too bad for Cinema, cause we did not had the perfect service she gave us. :(
