The menu is pretty standard. The food is high quality as always and Melvin is a great server. I don’t trek up to UWS often, but when I do, it’s for CCW and I’m never disappointed.
Good vegan food. Good service. A little over priced.
Wonderful brunch - delicious and plentiful portions. Will be returning...
Delicious vegan food. Our server recommended the brownie for desert...it was ymmy!
Lovely! Food was terrific
They failed to inform me on website when I booked that there was a pre-fix menu for $75 for Valentine's Day. They called me 2 days before and I was out of luck re-booking at another restaurant. Disappointed in this, although food is good.
The food was fine, but too expensive for what it was. My biggest complaint was how often we were told we had a "deadline" to leave the restaurant. When they called to confirm my reservation, they asked how much time I thought I would need for my meal, stating they had booked another reservation for the table 90 minutes after mine. Frankly, that's not my problem. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were told by both the hostess and the waiter that we needed to be finished by the deadline. I'm not a person who languishes at a table for hours while not ordering and I don't appreciate being rushed out the door. I would never visit this place again, especially not for a special occassion when we wanted to enjoy wine and conversation and, you know, a reasonable amount of time to complete a 4-course meal.
We went here for Valentine’s Day. For the price, I have had tremendously better Vegan food. Perhaps since it was a busy night, things did not go well but for 200+ dollar dinner I expect the food to at least be more than just OK.
I was extremely disappointed with the 'price-fixed' meal on Valentine's day that had a 'chopped salad' on the menu which was nothing but some lettuce interspersed with slices of red pepper with a no taste dressing....and it wasn't chopped. The fettuccine was also bland and tasteless surrounded by some vegetables. A thoroughly forgettable meal that was accompanied by a hefty, inappropriate bill.
Amazing beyond burger! My meat eater boyfriend loved it too! Great server, and two big entrees plus a bottle of wine was $100 WITH TIP!
Expensive for what it is.
Food was just ok.
Could improve on more natural and organic options.
Very nice restaurant with a great ambience. Catching up with a friend and it is nice when you can have a conversation. The food was excellent and so was the smoothie I had. Friendly staff. Definitely will be back.
The restaurant always seems understaffed on sunday for brunch. Sadly Im yet to get a bowl of pea soup, constantly sold out.
I come almost every sunday .
This is the first time w had a waitress who seemed to care. She is from dublin and a pro.
Good food and interesting menu, but the dishes are possibly trying too hard. Complexity can be enhancing vegan cusine, but menu lacked authenticity in my taste.
Typical place where I want to try everything but I will be unimpressed by most.
We need this place to stay in business and do great so we’ll remain supportive of great quality and choices.
I am vegan and celiac (strictly gluten free) and it can be difficult to find a nice restaurant where I can eat with my non-vegan, non-celiac family. Candle Cafe's offerings were delicious. I highly recommend them. They are very aware of food allergies and it is clear that awareness is shared by the kitchen.
This is one of my favorite places to eat. Absolutely everything on the menu is great. Their new addition of the Beyond Berger knocks it out of the park. Service is good and noise level is low. I can’t recommend this restaurant enough.
The specials of the day were outstanding. I highly recommend the artichoke bruschetta. My husband and I enjoyed appetizer, entrees, and dessert. 10 out of 10.
Wonderful as always. Great, tasty, healthy, innovative food choices. Very helpful wait staff.
Never disappointed at Candle Cafe West. Had dinner with a cousin who had never eaten at the restaurant. She loved it. Shared guacamole, chimmichuras, rolls and a salad. All delicious!
Love the options and the presentation of this very good food.
