Decent dinner on a recent Friday night. Had reservations and were greeted warmly and seated promptly. Service was not up to par. Waiter came to the table ready to take orders but had not asked for drinks orders nor told us about the specials. After that was cleared up, we tried to order the duck; but when he checked, it was not available. Hello, it is Friday night and you don't have one of your signature dishes? We re-grouped and ordered another dished. The appetizer was very good and the beet ravioli was delicious. Bouillabaisse was also a solid dish as was the apple dessert. Still not sure about the bread offering along with the hummus spread. Don't seem to go together for me and the bread doesn't quite make it-just not flavorful enough and feels a bit dry(yes, these are not huge negatives.
Overall, a very pretty place with decent choices for each course. The waiter was more attentive as the night went on. We usually save this restaurant for a special occasion.

We have been to the Cafe of Love many times. Never does it disappoint. Always consistently good if not great. And the bread pudding staple is the perfect way to eat a beautiful dinning experience. Thank you.

We were looking for a place to eat an early dinner. Saw the cafe if love was nearby, had good ratings and it was open for business in the early afternoon. A nice find. The menu had variety and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Great service. Will go here again when in Mt Kisco.

This visit to a usual favorite was not up to par. Our server, though efficient, was rushed and seemed annoyed in general. He had little patience and was halfway on his way while taking any part of the order. We both ordered the crepe special, which was okay - I would not order again. The salmon tasted fishy and the filling was loose and runny. To make things less appealing, the woman behind us was coughing tragically throughout the meal. Despite her companion asking for water several times (don't know if it was delivered when asked) she really had a horrible case of a cold and cough, which was quite off putting (I know that sounds self-centered but it was within an arm's reach of us). Going to write this one off to the full moon and try again because usually service, though never warm and fuzzy, is usually more attentive and kind and the food is usually memorable in a good way.

Best truffle chick peas ever! Cocktails had too too much ice which is usually the case so it wasn't worth the cost unless you are spending hours there milking the bar.

We had a lovely Sunday morning date at a cozy and romantic place. Very easy to find from the parkway; lovely French rustic décor. The waiter was a little bit brash at the beginning but thankfully warmed up. Very good steak and eggs and flourless chocolate cake (with nuts, not too rich or too sweet, it was just right.)

Discriminated for being party of 3
This dinner was to celebrate a special occasion and I personally called the restaurant the day before to confirm my reservation and requested a nice table for the occasion and I was assured they would accommodate us. We were seated at the WORST table in the house, I was basically sitting part of the hallway in front of the restrooms. I mentioned to the hostess that it was a special occasion and asked for another table when I was rudely told that all the other tables, that were empty, were for 4 people and this was the only table for 3. Our table was a standard table that could accommodate 3 or 4 just like all the other tables in the restaurant but she was unwilling to accomodate us because we were 3 people. I was embarrassed by her tone and how she made my guests feels. I decided to stay so not to embarrass my guests any further, but no one apologized or tried to make us feel welcome which was so unprofessional. I have been to Café of Love many times in the past which is why I chose this but in the future I will take my business to a restaurant that cares about their guests and the experience they have.

I've been going to Cafe of Love for several years now and can always count on fresh, healthy and creative meals. They have something on the menu for everyone including vegans and vegetarians. I'm also planning on having my daughters bridal shower there and I'm sure they'll do a wonderful job!

We were practically the only table for brunch and the service was horrible. We had to call the waiter and busboy to get water, coffee, utensils, request a desert menu etc. i ordered the brunch waffle and it was as hard as a rock. I had a note in my reservation that it was my friends birthday to bring a desert to the table and they just ignored it. Such a cute place but would not return because the service was so bad.

A family brunch allowed the Cafe to who off a bit. Bloody Marys were excellent--the right balance of spice and tomato mix. French toast among the best I've had. A soup starter was excellent. All in all, a most satisfying experince.

Cafe of ❤️Love is everything a restaurant could offer and more! The owner Leslie Lampert and her establishment are here to make your eating experience a warm and inviting atmosphere coupled with delicious soups, appetizers and entrees. During this season, she offers her special Celebrations soup which is absolutely delicious!! I enjoyed a bowl and savored every sip! My family enjoyed steaks and sweet potato fries. I also loved their seafood cake with a garnish of salad! Come visit Cafe of Love, It is worth the drive!

We usually love Cafe of Love, but they fell down on this Sunday night. We arrived for our 5:15 reservation and there was loud, techno-rock music blasting—not what you want on a rainy, moody Sunday evening when you want to relax. We asked for it to be turned down, and it was, but on came awful pop music. About one hour into our meal (by which time the restaurant was full)the music finally went OFF. Service was off, too, and this must have been because they were (as we heard one hostess mention to someone) training new staff. A waiter walked around and lit the candles on all the table but ours. I had to steal a bread plate from the table next to ours. They seated a couple in the table next to ours, then asked them to move because they had forgotten that they had booked a party of six for that same space. Some nights are bumpy like this, but, on a night when they are training new staff, shouldn't they have some experienced staff (or Leslie) walking around to make up for these fumbles?
Food was yummy except for the flourless chocolate cake, which had an odd, chewy texture and a dry crust.

We have been here multiple times over the years. We went yesterday for a brunch help was scarce to say the least. The bloody Mary was so spicy could not drink it. Eggs came freezing cold as did the hollandaise sauce. Asked for warm hollandaise sauce came back ice cold again. Bartender was helping us who is very sweet and considerate but I’m not sure what’s going on at this restaurant because this is the first time we have been so disappointed

This was our first time going to Cafe of Love for dinner. Everything we ate was delicious, fresh and had it's own unique Cafe of Love twist. The servers were all very friendly and accommodating. We started with salad and soup all which were very good!! We then had a hanger stake over a bed of beans and vegetables which was delicious and filling. The owner and staff was very accommodating to my 2 year old niece who has a serve dairy allergy. This restaurant his highly recommended and we can't wait to go back!!
