    What a Great Find!!

    My boyfriend & I decided to stop into the Cupping Room as we walked home from work one evening. We checked out the menu & decided to give it a try. I noticed the other reviews about service and the food but I have to say, we enjoyed the experience very much there. One thing I can agree with was the comment about the fries. My boyfriend did comment about how soggy and greasy they were but everything else was great. Our waiter and bus boy were very attentive. At one point the manager even stopped by to check on us. The atmosphere was great...rustic and relaxing. I ordered from the pre-fixe dinner menu and was thoroughly satisfied. The spinach ravioli w/shrimp was fantastic! My boyfriend had the tomato, mozzarella and basil sandwich and it was great. There was a projecter playing a soccer game so my boyfriend was in heaven :-) We weren't rushed at all as we sat there for over an hour talking after our meal was done. All in all it was a wonderful night having a delicious meal. We agreed that we absolutely plan to go back again.

    What a great Experience! Not!

    What has happened to this place? I used to live on Houston St. and used to frequent the Cupping Room on a regular basis, Brunch (food) was always good and service was always fast and satisfactory. I moved uptown bout 2 years ago and last week for whatever reason the Cup. Room popped into my noggin and I decided to have brunch there with a few friends. DISAPPOINTMENT!! First, the mexican omelette that I ordered was bout half the size of the omelette that I remembered. The fries were soggy and my friend actually took a bite and spat it out,and he is not a picky eater either. And the service...what service? The waiter that we had did not crack a single smile the entire time, did not care to see if we were happy with everything, as is he was just there to take the order and bring the food, that's it. AH, just a tip for you, you are a waiter, you actually have to "work" to earn your tips. And are there managers in this restaurant? If there were, you guys were not doing a very good job "managing" this spot. All in all, I don't think I'll ever step back into the Cupping Room again.

    Eating Experience

    I ate there by myself tonight, and the service was deplorable. I had to signal the busboy to bring me the following things that my waiter had not and was seemingly unwilling to do: A second cocktail, bread (during the two cocktails), a fork for dinner after my salad plate had been removed, sugar and a spoon for my espresso, a check. Some significant training is in order, or a realignment of who is getting a pass and for what reason.

    Are you kidding?

    This was perhaps one of the least enjoyable experiences that I have ever had in a restaurant. The service was slow, It took ten minutes for the server to come to the table, and then he acted as though we were disturbing his conversation with the bartender. My silverware and water glass were both dirty (I understand this happens, but how about a little quality control guys?) The food was seriously over-priced. The portions were large, but the quality was lacking: most neighborhood dinners do a better job. The menu lacked imagination, any consideration of food-pairings, and any semblance of cohesion. The bathroom was absolutely filthy and small . . . one of the aforementioned is forgivable. We needed to flag our socially focused waiter down to get the check, once again distracting him from something obviously far more important than his job. We would have complained, except for the fact that we realized the person sitting at the bar watching TV was the manager. With so many other and better options, there is really no reason what-so-ever to visit this place.

    Wonder Bread's SoHo Cousin

    Four stars for food??? Are you kidding? I ordered a turkey burger and fries for lunch. Any bar or diner in this city could have made an equal or better burger and fries, probably at a more reasonable price. The burger was a flavorless lump of avian meat on a spongy, mass-produced bun worthy of a suburban school cafeteria. Although the fries looked pretty with their golden brown bodies and charred tips, they were soggy and lukewarm. Even a healthy dose of Heinz ketchup couldn’t rescue them. The service was not terribly attentive, probably because the place was packed. We had a long wait after ordering, again, in all likelihood due to the early Sunday afternoon mob scene. Sure, the atmosphere is nice, but beyond that, this place is just another slice of pricey mediocrity.

    Love It

    The Cupping Room is a staple. I've been eating there for 2 years now and the food, service, and atmosphere have been consistently pleasant. Its cozy atmosphere is warm and embracing, and is one of the few places that makes you feel like you have escaped the city. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
