Fantastic experience. Enjoyed more than Little Italy.
I went to Arte Cafe Chelsea for the first time, and really enjoyed it. My mista salad and gnocchi were both excellent, and the prices were very reasonable. The service was good and the dining room is both spacious and beautiful.
Went with a group of friends for Thanksgiving dinner. Menu, food and service were great! Will definately be back!
Great food & service. The value at noon was fantastic for Manhattan.
Always a great place to meet for a social with one other or more. Lovely ambiance, very good food and friendly, accommodating service
Patricia was a wonderful server. Started with POLPETTE AL POMODORO (meatballs), and MOZZARELLA DI BUFALA. For dinner we had 2 FETTUCCINE ALLA BOLOGNESE and a TORTELLI RICOTTA E SPINACI. Desert was a Creme Brulee which was not crusty or warm but still very good. All the food was outstanding.
As a beer drinker I was surprised that they had run out of beer as there was a big party going on. Patricia did find one Peroni for me.Pinot Grigio Purato 2017 Sicilia and Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Moda wines made for a great night. Thank you we will be back.
The staff could not of been lovelier great night
Lovely atmosphere and staff was attentive. The food was quite good and a lovely selection of wines. The seating area is spacious so you don’t feel crowded in by the tables next to you.
Waitress was pushing us to order.
I had a late dinner with a fiend on Saturday night. Lively atmosphere , loved the music but not too load. The food was excellent- tender Finn greasy crisp fried calamari, delicious thin crust pepperoni pizza and al dente pasta- orchietta with sausage and broccoli rabe. Chocolate mouse was rich and had extra dark chocolate shavings inside- big portion. The host - River was very friendly and helpful, with an upbeat personality. We will definitely tell our friends about this very spacious place with lovely decor and traditional Italian favorites on the menu. Looking forward to trying more items on the menu which was priced moderately.
Staff was attentive to our table, menus has a good selection and all the food tasted delicious. $16 pastas, but servicing size was good.
The atmosphere here is very pleasant and the tables are not on top of each other. The branzino is excellent with roasted vegetables and we both enjoyed it. For dessert I had apple tart with vanilla ice cream and it was delicious. My friend really liked the tiramisu. The prices were good for a Manhattan restaurant in Chelsea. I highly recommend Arte Cafe.
Could not get anyone to turn down the damn music - inappropriate for the dinner hour and thumping loud all the time!
Very good food, atmosphere and service, consistently delivers a great dining experience.
My 2nd visit in one week. Great after the Irish Rep or on the way home from the theater. Beet salad was delicious. Both pastas were cooked and sauced properly. The restaurant is spacious ... no banquettes. There is actually space between the tables. Edison was our waiter both times. Very solicitous service. Will return.
I KNEW ARTE CAFE FROM UPPER WESTSIDE BUT I VISITED NEW LOCATION AT ARTE CHELSEA WITH MY FRIEND AND IT WAS AMAZING. THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AND SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. EVERY ONE WAS FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL. WILL COME BACK SOON.!!
Second time there. Food was delicious. Excellent service. Delightful cocktails.
Arte Cafe continues to provide a great dining experience; good service, food, value and nice ambiance - a welcome addition to the area. Highly recommend.
Arte Cafe overall was a disappointment. I wanted to like it, the decor is lovely and the food was pretty good. The service was really slow though and quite rude. One of the waiters even cat-called one of my friends while there as she was walking to the restroom, not okay. Will not return!
We love Arte...there a few times a month. Love the vibe and the food and drinks are always delicious
Great service and delicious food Food is freshly prepared and portions generous. A great casual neighborhood place. Give it a try !
Great service and good value. Delicious casual meal
Discovering that Arte Café had a prix fixe menu as well was great!! Food was excellent and would recommend and look forward to going back again very soon.
The drinks during happy hour were well made, tasty and fairly priced. The price fixed dinner was economical but the food was underwhelming. The minestrone was tasteless as was the pasta bolognese. A grilled octopus appetizer was excellent with a good char and firmness. The branzino filet was quite good.
The branzino fillet both my guest and I had was so over cooked I found it inedible. I also found it peculiar that after picking up my guest’s napkin, which had fallen to the floor, the server didn’t ask if she needed a new napkin. No one was seated near us so it had to be hers.eventually I had to take one from another table to give her. I would not recommend this restaurant.
There was a party in the next room that was very LOUD. The waiters did not bring forks and there were no spoons to serve the appetizers. The empty bread dish was not removed when the new bread was brought to the table. Mixed greens were not delivered with my steak order
We thought the $18 fixed price was great. We were very full after our three course meal. The staff was very friendly and quick. I would go back, and recommend to a friend
Always good: food, ambiance and service. Our 'go to'
Big fan of the uptown version and this one is almost as nice. The big space probably has the potential to get noisy but it was really quiet when we were there. The prix fix is a great deal and all of the options are really good- even with a few having a $2-5 upcharge it is a great deal. We enjoyed meatballs, mussels and two pastas. The pollo pazzo was divine. Service was fine but could have been friendlier given that it was virtually empty. Cocktails are well done- a tad pricey given the rest of the menu but worth it!
18 dollar pre fixed menu was excellent. Staff was very inviting and on point the entire night.
Wanted to like this restaurant but the service was so poor - we rarely saw our server and were outside so had trouble getting anyone’s attention. Had the tuna tartare and was not good - such a standard dish but the tuna wasn’t fresh nor high quality.
I had the prefix and the food was mediocre. The desert was excellent
Very comfortable space. Polite attentive service. Prices and portions reasonable and very well prepared.
You either play no music or keep it low, which is so nice for those of us who want to talk and be heard. Good happy hour too. Nice staff.
We are so happy that Arte Cafe is in the neighborhood. We have lived here for over 17 years and always went to the Italian restaurants that held the space and they were all so good and family friendly. Highly recommend it for dinner and their Happy Hour is so much fun.
Out of the seven brunch meals ordered, four had to be sent back. Even the pancakes were burnt.
The manager and waiter were apologetic, but that didn’t make up for the bad food
Great food / management very attentive and came back 2 days in a row for happy hour. Shrimp tacos on happy hour menu are fantastic!
Tuna tartare appetizer was good. Skirt steak main course was tasteless and not rare as ordered. My partner's veal piccata was passable. Service was polite but very spotty. Servers did not know which of us had ordered which main course.
The food and service was very good. We would come back again.
We went here for their great happy hour menu and sat outside, but were not allowed to have the HH menu it was only for the bar. My friend asked for an exception since we were the only ones in the restaurant and they said no. So we finished our drinks and went somewhere else.
The perfect neighborhood gem.
Some of the best fried calamari ever
