We've decided we're never going back. We loved there before, but the quality of the food got worse. We could tell the food was sitting there for hours. One of us felt sick with baked tilapia because of the bad oil. They always serve the same food all the time. Also the service gotten worse, too. Just to get the coffee, we were asked by different girls till we get to the casher at least 3 times! When we asked for utensils at the cashier, young untrained cashier woman told us to go get plastic utensils by the counter even though the silver utensils were prepared in front of her. We told her we want silver ones, she threw them on the tray. We could've just walked out. The city bakery, Please hire the civilized workers who knows they are expected to serve customers. Teach them the difference between silver and plastic folks and knives. Please don't hire unhappy workers who'd give you attitude to the customers. We pay at least $20 when we go, but the atmosphere we experienced was worse than any fast food places. Good bye, the city bakery.

This is one of our most disappointing choices in NYC! The prices are not posted anywhere and you get sticker shock at the register! We ordered 2 small bowls of mac and cheese and a chocolate chip cookie, the total was $18 for bland, lukewarm mac and cheese and a greasy cookie. The decor is unremarkable and we would not be returning to this place, nor recommend it to anyone.

This wonderful nyc sceney place has hands down the most unbelievable macorrni and cheese. Wish I could get the receipe. It is incredibly expensive and incredibly worth it! It is my monthly indulgence (at these prices has to be). The hot chocolate is also best in city. Hint - get the smaller size, much less expensive and you get the same taste experience. Atmosphere is wonderful with lots of interesting people watching. The owner is there a lot as well and keeps the quality of food very high.

Went in for a chocolate chip cookie craving and left utterly disappointed. Greasy, too chewy, salty, and had a certain taste of fried food. Not sure where they keep the cookies before putting them on the counter, but surely close to the kitchen food prep area. Not recommended.

This review only goes for the pretzel croissant, because that is all I grabbed to go. I actually went there to get a blueberry muffin, because I had heard they make one of the best in the city. They were out so I decided to go for the pretzel croissant because I had heard it was good. I am not a croissant person and wasn't expecting much but oh my god, it is so delicious!Get it. Now.

I've been frequenting City Bakery for years now. I agree with other reviewers that their food is WAY overpriced. It is good, but come on. I go there, as it's a place to relax, chat with friends, flip through a magazine, and not be rushed out of your seat. There are few things they could do to make me happier. One being, get some servers without the attitude...so unappealing! You're still just a server, people! Also, please, please, please, bring back the melted chocolate cookie. I can't for the life of me understand why it went away, and why it hasn't come back. It's literally been years now, so saying it was 'seasonal' which I was once told, does not ring true. I guess they get enough people in there, that they don't really care.

this place rocks. is it expensive? yes. does it taste really good? yes. it is a pleasure to eat there. my only complaint is the quality of their plastic forks. i'm paying $23 for a plate of food, i'd like a decent fork. really. pax has better forks. work it out, city bakery. it's in poor taste...and that's just not like you.
