    Where It's At!

    I had dinner here last week on Tuesday evening. It was a wonderful evening for my friends and I. The food was delicious and the atmosphere of the cafe was not to be believed. My walk down Cornelia Street was beautiful, I felt like I had left Manhattan, the USA even and once inside the restaurant I felt the same if not more. The wine list was very impressive, I suggest trying one of the flights, the offer 6, I believe. And my server from the beginning set the tone that this was going to be a fabulous evening, helping my decide what to order! I will be going back again and again!! Bravo to the cafe.

    Great Neighborhood Find

    My daughter (10) and I ate dinner at the Cornelia St Cafe last week. We ate early so it wasn't too packed but most of the tables were occupied. The ambiance was good although we felt a little cramped at a table for two.. dining room we were in was pretty small. The service was great and our food came quickly, servers were attentive but not hovering - which I like! We both had the pate to start and really enjoyed it. We had chicken breast with garlic mash for our main meal, the chicken and mash were really good but the carrots were too sweet for my liking and my daughter thought the shredded leeks tasted like hay :).. I didn't mind them so much, I thought they added some texture but weren't exactly flavorful. We will be back!

    Amazing food

    I had dinner at the Cornelia Street Cafe last week and was blown away by the food. The presentation was amazing, but the actual taste was even better. The portions are pretty big. This is a great place for dinner with friends!

    Poor service

    We had Thanksgiving Dinner at this restaurant and I was extremely disappointed. The restaurant was overfilled to the point of extreme discomfort. There were 15 people in line for the 2 small bathrooms and there were tables everywhere you walked. You couldn't move an inch without bumping into someone. The woman behind us was slightly overweight and had to pull out her chair the slightest amount and said the servers were constantly bumping her. The food was average, the desserts were disappointing. The turkey was not fresh and tasted rubbery. However, the surliness of the waitstaff was the worst part of the experience. A 20% tip was included and they did not care one bit about customer satisfaction. One female server with a ponytail was especially rude.

    Great G0-to for lunch/brunch - just wish the food was better

    I went to Cornelia St Cafe for the first time yesterday for brunch. Love the prix fixe brunch menu - it's so reasonably priced by NY standards. The atmosphere is just as described - quaint, European style cafe with brick walls, art by local painters and a small but perfectly adequate mahogany bar. It's also nice to walk the neighborhood afterwards. I just wish the food had been a little better. It wasn't bad by any means, just not great. And the presentation was very disappointing. My friend's omelette looked very bland and alone on a white plate, even though it tasted fine. My quiche was ok but could've been sooooo much better. All that said, the overall experience is nice. I wouldn't steer anyone away, but would caution you to have reasonable expectations about the food.

    reviewer below

    to the reviewer below, that's not being a tattle tale...servers aren't allowed to make those decisions on their own...they need to clear prices by their managers or else risk getting fired. a stranger having to pay an extra $10 isn't worth losing your job over and, like you said, it never hurts to ask. i suggest you loosen up and stop critiquing so much. i am assuming you don't know how hard it is to serve tables, especially in nyc. don't judge until you've tried something.

    Why is the Sangria a problem?

    While the atmosphere was casual and good for groups, our waitress was a tattle tale. We asked for Sangria with no fruit, since our first pitcher had tons, and she told the Host what we asked for. He then rudely told us he would charge us double, instead of answering us nicely as paying customers. We were just asking! They really couldn't give us Sangria with no fruit it in?! The food was not worth going back for. In addition, my friend hates it when the waiters clear one persons dish when others at the table are still eating, and thats what they did. The Key Lime Pie was the only good point of the evening. Oh, yes, and good company of course:-)
