    I ended up not staying being as I had the reservation and they said they could not sit us until 7PM. I had theatre tickets for an 8PM show and would not have made it. They need to work on keeping reservations.

  • This was not my first visit
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    This was not my first visit to this restaurant. The entrees, appetizers, and pasta are always excellent. This time, however, I ordered the Ceaser salad and was not very impressed. I do think, since they have so many daily specials, they should present them on a daily menu instead of having the waiter recite them to every table. It would certainly make it easier to decided. Also we would have a better idea of the price of each special.

    Cara Mia was the perfect restaurant choice for a pre-theatre experience. The meal was delicious - from appetizer to dessert!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/15/2008
    reservations through open table were great. we arrived about 5 minutes after our reserved time and the table was waiting. the seating was very tight with typical small new york tables. the service was outstanding. we were never rushed or neglected even though there was a full house. the staff was always courtious and professional. it was finally nice to see a restaurant address ladies first throughout the evening. the salads were good but my chicken parm was ok. my wife enjoyed her eggplant parm. the desserts was fantastic. prices were more than reasonable and we would return again without reservations.

    We usually eat here pre-theatre. We have never had a bad meal or poor service. Despite the pressure, the food is cooked to order and to perfection and the service is always considerate. They have the best ricotta cheesecake in town.
