Café Fiorello Lasagna (Specialita!)
lemon beurre blanc, asparagus
Smoked Salmon Pizza
black caviar, crème fraîche, red onion
Loved the egg plant stuffed with shell fish. My wife loved her lumped crab salad. Ample portions. Home made cheesecake perfect finish. 5 stars
We sat outside for brunch. We’ve been there many times for dinner. Food was good as was the service. Access to the bathroom is difficult.
Great food & Attentive Service
Our server Linden was the best ever !
Great food, but they rob you blind with the high cost of their small size of Wine glass measures
Always great service which is appreciated since often on a tight schedule. Love the veggie plate choices...mushrooms and caponata especially!
Great Dover Sole in Lemon butter sauce. My wife had smoked salmon and burrata which she enjoyed very much. Favorite neighborhood spot.
Reunion with family and young children.
Wonderful server. Excellent food and drinks.
One of our fav restaurants!
Welcoming front-end staff, professional waiters, good food expertly prepared.
What's not to like?
Fried artichokes are good. Mussels are OK but disappointing,
Dont even think of ordering Lasagna; awful. Open face lasagna or whatever you want to call it. Dry lasagna pasta base with blobs of cheese, wash out tomato sauce, and something looking like meatballs. But very big. If you are so hungry that you will eat a huge amount food regardless of how it taste this is your place.
Disappointing because I have been there a couple of time before and the food was very good.
I was disappointed in the service and the quality of the food this time. This used to be one of our favorite brunch places to come to as it was a breath of fresh air compared to some of the busy and overpriced brunch places in the area.
Excellent service and very good food
Excellent as always. The service is perfect. The food delish!
The food was superb, the service wonderful, and the ambience was delightful,
Really enjoyed our dinner, especially the vegetable appetizers and Dover sole. Prompt efficient service.
Great as usual
Our food was delicious. My companion promised me a bite of her seafood stuffed eggplant but once she tasted it kept it all to herself! My Lobster & burrata salad was refreshing and so fresh. Our waiter was charming and clever. We ate outside, which can be a bit noisy, depending on what’s on the street. Still, a delightful dinner
The food was especially good, the best I've had there over the past decades that I have patronized this restaurant. The waiters were very nice and very incompetent. They had to be told to move dirty plates when serving a new course--they had to be told to do everything practically. Fiorello's does itself a disservice in serving excellent food but hiring their wait staff off the streets.
The staff were incredibly warm and attentive. Generous, even.
Easy neighborhood place where food is consistently tasty and service is good.
The staff is incredible, so friendly and on top of everything. The pineapple mojito was great along with the margarita pizza & meatballs.
This is an ok place for a quick meal across from Lincoln Center. Food is just ok, but expensive.
We had an excellent time dining at Cafe Fiorello. The food is exquisite and we didn’t wait too long for our plates to arrive. Prices are reasonable compared to other restaurants. If you want to dine here, it is a great choice.
Solid food as always, and very attentive service.
Not the first time eating here and it won't be the last. It's a wonderful place!
Fiorello never disappoints. The food is fantastic. Last night we had the Dover Sole and Chicken Parmigiana Pepperoni. Both were perfectly done and superbly flavored.
Always reliable, always good - conveniently located!
So happy Cafe Fiorello is back. I always enjoy the food, staff, etc.
I was surprised at the price increase. But I certainly understand and champion the success of our restaurants.
My friends and I enjoyed a four-hour lunch.! Food was delicious as was the ambience. Our waiter, Jeff, was excellent.....he didn't hover over us; yet was anticipating our every need. We were not rushed. We look forward to a return visit soon. Thanks.
Friendly hostess and quick table service. We stayed a long time and no one rushed us out. Excellent food. Definitely a good value for that neighborhood.
I’ve been meaning to try this restaurant. Everything and everyone was amazing. Keep it up! Thank you!
The service is always the best at Fiorellos. They make you feel at home.
Food was delicious as always but the service was non existent last night... no removal of appetizer plates, drink glasses left, as new ones were place down, no ability to get service when finished. Surprised and disappointed
Service was poor - took a long time, not flexible w/ substitutes, made a couple of mistakes
We love to come here when we visit nyc the place is great vibe and ambiance on point and food always amazing and perfect- just a fun crowd pleasing kind of place
Great service and great food
Great brunch menu. Perfect scrambled eggs with many meat choices. Eggs came with a small mixed greens salad and the best fries ever. Nice brunch cocktails. Good service. We sat outside in COVID-adapted seating, looking out at Lincoln Center,
As usual, Cafe Fiorello was Amazing!! I highly recommend Cafe Fiorello for its amazing food, service and ambiance. It’s number one in my book!!
