I did nit understand why I waited for a seat by the drafty door. My service was great. Not a good value for the price as far as portion size.

Great food and a cool environment. The service was great and pretty quick. I would definitely come back with friends and try something else from their yummy menu. I ordered the meatloaf and it was really tasty and a nice size portion.

Too loud, flies in tables, entree came missing components (eg, steak without polenta fries), had to proactively ask waiter to clear plates, had to stack plates because they were not cleared

We loved our meal at Cafeteria. The food was delicious and the service great. Street noise while sitting outside was very loud since it's above the subway, but still a spectacular meal!

I knew what I was getting by booking this restaurant. It's a diner but better than a diner and so I wasn't expecting fine dining but a good place to stop after going to the Rubin Museum. My salad was very good and service was good. Our waiter said he was new but he did a good job. We were seated right away. A table next to us left after waiting for a bit but I'm not sure what the problem was. My husbands meal was not as good as he had hoped, he got the meatloaf. This is why I am not giving it more stars. Don't expect fine dining, expect diner food with a nice outside seating area.

I've only been twice and both times I got the ginger salmon. It was delicious. Underneath the salmon was a puree of peas with peas and mushroom. I highly recommend it. My dad also got the salmon and he was pleasantly surprised by how tasty it was. The complimentary biscuits are a good touch and quite tasty as well.

that it had a rhubarb, but it was AMAZING!! Hubbie had meatballs - very tasty!
