    We had a great time… we stayed in midtown but wanted something quieter on the upper west side… the food was a amazing, pasta was perfectly cooked, wine flowed like the salmon of Capistrano… you will not be disappointed! Ambience was SO FUN

    We were here for Thanksgiving lunch. The food was excellent and all of the staff was friendly and attentive. Our waitress, Molly, did a terrific job throughout the meal and was extremely kind to my elderly mother, which was greatly appreciated. All in all, it was a very enjoyable Thanksgiving dinner. We'll be back!

    Service staff was inattentive and seemed annoyed to be there. Silverware was not replaced between courses even when requested and table cloth not cleaned of crumbs etc. Food came out at different times for half our group of 6. Appetizers were not hot. Overall food was mediocre especially for the price.

    Returned to Arte as had fond memories and it’s close to Beacon theater. Food was excellent. Noise and ambiance was disturbed by a loud unsupervised table of screaming I’ll mannered young teens. My dining companion wanted to pay for her dinner in cash. The server REFUSED to accept a cash and credit card payment and rudely shoved the cash back and threw the card down on the table. Had to request a manager . She sent another server who weakly apologized and took payment. What restaurant doesn’t accept cash ? I asked for a manager to explain their process but he didn’t respond.

    It took quite awhile for our waitress to take our order. However, the restaurant was very busy, so we were not upset about this. Although the food was tasty and well presented, it was served to us before we received our drinks. When the drinks arrived, one was a very peaty Scotch, not the Scotch that was ordered.

    Our waiter ignored us for the first 50 minutes we were there, refusing to even look in our direction. The bus boy ended up having us write our drink orders on a piece of paper so he could attempt to serve us instead. Even after the waiter finally came to take our order, he then continued to ignore us for the entire hour it then took for our mediocre food to come out.

    Unfortunately this restaurant was overwhelmed by its proximity to the Beacon Theatre. We had to ask more than three times for our drinks and, while l I asked multiple times for the prosciutto that was supposed to come with my mozzarella salad (which was my dinner), all I got was apologies that they were very busy. It never arrived and the waiter said he was too busy to go back to the kitchen and look for it.

    Our reservation was for Saturday night at 6pm. We were placed in second room, with no other guests at the outset, which made it easy to converse. By the time we left, after 8pm, that room was crowded, and the noise level was extremely high. We could no longer talk comfortably. Arte Cafe is one of my very few local favorites. Despite the noise level, I will continue to frequent it, possibly going to dinner a little earlier next time. Lunch is less crowded and during the week, the $25 special menu from Noon- 6pm is a particularly good value.

    The food was great but the best thing was outstanding service. One of our party had an emergency and we had to leave the restaurant for 40mins. They kept our table, didn’t demand payment for wines etc before we left and had everything ready for us when we returned quite extraordinary. Thank you Cafe Arte!

    We went for the mid-day prix fixe menu and it was superb. The options were excellent and the food was very good. We enjoyed all the options, and even though we went a bit off the menu, the meal was reasonable. Service was excellent, lovely environment, and since it was late lunchtime, it was very quiet and had almost no noise. It has become my favorite UWS restaurant.
