I came to Cinema Cafe with a friend for lunch, and was excited by the menu. We ordered the Fries appetizer which we were told was bigger and better than the side of fries offered...it wasn't. The fries seemed as if they were previously frozen...I ordered the Ahi Tuna Salad which was $18 and totally not worth it. The tuna was overcooked and the salad was extremely bland. Although I only took a few bites, I was never asked if it was okay or if anything was wrong. And although our server was nice, he was extremely inattentive and we had to flag him down after 15 minutes of waiting for our check. I am in the service industry myself, and the management at the Cinema Cafe need to require more out of their staff. Our server’s menu knowledge was not good and the service was bad. Better servers equal a better restaurant. Unfortunately, I will not be returning.

my friends and i used to go once a week..and now it is just disappointing..the food is great ..but the service is not! Not only are the waiters rude, but they are also extremely unattentive. The past 3 waiters I've had have not been good. we are very disappointed.. :(

They just changed their menu and it's not good. Cinema used to be a great place to get a simple dinner that's better than your typical diner food. Now, they are trying to be fancy, but it's just not working. The food is just not good. Such a shame.

I have eaten at cinema tens of times, at both locations. While the UES location 70s/2nd has a better menu, better bread & spread, etc., this location is servicable. The prices are great, food is consistent each visit. This is my complete go-to for a quick, relatively cheap dinner.

The look of this place isn't that nice but the food and service more than makes up for it. Our waiter was attentive and so pleasant. We got our food immediately and to cap it off it the meal was delicious.

The food is pretty decent - especially salads... but they play obnoxious house music, and it is soooo loud, even at lunch time! you can't even hear yourself think.
