    Great Hidden Gem

    What a surprising experience! I was invited by my close friends for dinner at this superb restaurant a few days ago. Apparently the owner is a famous florist and you can tell by the magnificent flowers in the dining room. I was told that the French Chef is a new partner and that he elevated this restaurant in a few months...I did ask to speak with him and Chef Jonathan came over to our table right away. He was extremely nice, told us about the history of the restaurant and he's career in the US and was simply charming. The dinner was amazing!! I had an appetizer of a pear and blue cheese tart and then the Seafood Risotto, both where equally delicious. They have desserts spread out on a beautiful table in the center of the restaurant and couldn't resist and had a delicious panna cotta for dessert. I actually went back for Brunch on the week-end and it was equally good. I had the best omelet and a warm croissant with a rich cup of coffee. Well worth coming back!

    disappointing breakfast

    I used to go here for breakfast and I loved their omelet. They now have a different chef and different menu. No omelet. The only item with eggs is an English breakfast. The eggs, boiled potatoes and baked beans were not hot, they were barely lukewarm, closer to room temperature. I had to wave down a waiter to get salt and pepper. Instead of toast, they served two mini pastries which I tasted, they weren't very good. No one asked if I wanted more coffee, no one came near me until I asked for the check.

    Very disappointed

    Went for Sunday brunch, had the so-called omelet, which seemed to consist of two very small eggs, a leaf of spinach and supposedly some cheeze, which I couldn't find. Served on an elongated saucer with 2 pieces of dry toast. Nothing else. Not even a sprig of parsley. Butter is available if you ask for it. You can get a tiny serving of fried potatos for another 5 bucks. Ridiculous. Overpriced, overloud, and definitely not special.

What a disappointed moment, food wasn't 4stars as claimed, I give service a 2stars the waiter we have smell like cigeratte the 2nd time he came back after disappearing, come on! 2009 California wine for $65 give me a break! Dessert is a joke. wish I can get my money back, so disappointed

    A lovely neighborhood restaurant

    A lovely neighborhood find for charm and service. It is however very over priced for what it is. The wines are mediocre and much too expensive for this type of restaurant and the food which was lovely but the quality did not deserve the prices. It was not an $80.00 pr person meal.

    A Night To Remember

    My love & I went for Valentines Day dinner. I can't remember the last time a pre fix was any good anywhere in the city. Well... This place was FANTASTIC! Finally a great neighborhood spot with great culinary talent. We usually have to go downtown to eat well every week since the upper east is just littered with bar-food or quick sushi for ordering in. The place was beautiful with great attention to detail, the portions were great, the wine was great, the flavors & aromas were right on & service excellent! We will back soon. I highly recomend this spot to everyone for any occasion. We will be back soon - thank you Ze Cafe for a wonderful evening.
