    Good experience overall. I went there for my burthday with my best friend. We sat by 2 tables with children who were crying and screaming, but calmed down after a bit. Our waitress was great though. The meal was okay: The chicken piccata had great flavors and definitely would recommend it. The bread was way too salty. Your bottled cola is not good at all... My friend got the blueberry white mocha and couldn't drink it. The cakes are way overpriced and to be honest not very good. The Blueberry lemon was so dense, I couldn't eat it... But I appreciated the candle and the happy birthday card. My friend had the Pixie birthday cake and couldn't eat the buttercream, it was overpowered with almond extract. We bought several treats to bring home. The Millionaire Cake, the raspberry jam bar and the lemon bar were delicious, but the Walnut Brownie was super dry. Overall it was an okay experience.

    Our waitress told us with our lunch sandwich we could exchange the salad for a cup of fruit but then charged us $6 each extra. We were enjoying the experience and then that ruined everything because she wasn't honest and then it caused us not to buy the extra cakes we planned to take home to our spouses so Cake Bake lost at least $100 because then we left when she wouldn't make it right. Most of the cakes were very good we tried (4 different ones but the chocolate was dry, the raspberry was very good). The PB Cheesecake was extremely rich. I'll mark I will recommend but if I base it on our service and experience I might say no. Also, our meal took a very long time. We were there over 2.5 hours.

    We had three different soups! All were great! The quiche was lackluster.. burnt and runny with no taste! The ham and Brie sandwich was on point as was the green goddess Cobb salad! Thought it a bit much to be charged for the ice for the vodka and water! The slices of cake were awesome! The caffe mocha was good. Overall a good experience! Needs some fine tuning though.

    I rarely write reviews, but this place was amazing.i was hyped before we got there by the website and in person it still made my jaw drop at the ambiance. I’m still trying to figure out if I’ve had a better slice of chocolate cake in my (long) lifetime. Quiche was great, drinks were great. Excellent service, too. Just go!!!!

    We had reservations for lunch for 4 and the day prior called to modify to 6 since some out of town relatives unexpectedly were in town. I was told they couldn’t accommodate 6. On Open Table I saw openings for 2 so made a separate reservation for 2. Another member of our party looked in Open Table after me and saw availability for 6 but at that point if we canceled (and rebooked) we’d have a penalty of $10/person. On arrival, we asked if we could be seated nearby each other. Two top was seated directly across from an empty 4 top but hostess said that table was reserved for tea not lunch. Instead the 4 were seated at the opposite end of the patio. The “tea” table remained empty for our entire lunch and was empty when we left. When the 2 diners finished before the 4, they sat down in 2 empty chairs across to chat. The hostess came and said they needed to use the chairs for a party of 8. They set up that table and we left to take a Midtown walk. As we walked by 30 minutes later, that 8 top was still empty! The wait staff was very kind and attentive and the food was good but our experience with the inflexible hostess ruined the experience and makes us not want to return.

    Beautiful setting and good service; however, we went for brunch yet there are just a couple of dishes for adults and no brunch options for kids—no pancakes, muffins, eggs, sausage or bacon. This was quite surprising given the posted operating hours. Breakfast options for adults are quiche or Croque Monsieur/Croque Madame. Coffee is expensive and was never refilled, whether by design or omission. Pancakes would be a step in the right direction for both adults and kids—after all, it is a cake shop.

    Food was excellent but $31 for ‘one’ crab cake appetizer is outrageous IMO. The atmosphere is beautiful and the service was wonderful. I did find it odd they crammed everyone in one area of the restaurant when other areas were completely empty - I found it a little crammed and loud.

    Overall, our experience was good. Cake Bake has a beautiful and comfortable ambiance. Our server, Lana, was a gem--friendly, helpful & efficient. We enjoyed our drinks, appetizers and meals very much. Can highly recommend the avocado stack & Cobb salad. Millionaire's Cake & Lemon Blueberry Cake were a treat. Unfortunately, the apple pie was a total disappointment and our recommendation is to save your $16 and just eat a raw apple! Although the pie had plenty of tart apples, they were hugely undercooked and minimally spiced and very dry! And the crust was tough! Cake Bake, stick to cakes! Otherwise, Cake Bake IS a treat and an experience and is worth a visit.

    Hello Natalie, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a five-star review. We are disappointed that your Apple Crumble pie did not reflect the usual high standards that we hold ourselves to. We are grateful for your feedback and have passed it along to our production team. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed many other aspects of your visit. We will pass your compliments along to Lana. Warmly, The Cake Bake Shop

    Beautiful environment, awesome staff and service, food balanced and well prepared and served, cake icing was slightly disappointing - prefer fresh flavors to imitation, overall very good time with family! Will return for special occasions!

    Hello, Thank you for leaving us a five-star review. We are disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy our frosting. We use a Swiss meringue buttercream, with a 6% higher butter content, which differs greatly from standard American buttercream. We would love to recommend some alternate frosting types for your next visit, such as our cream cheese frosting, or our delicious dark fudge frosting. We're delighted to hear you enjoyed the decor, food, and service. We look forward to welcoming you back for your next special occasion! Warmly, The Cake Bake Shop

    Service was great! The atmosphere was beautiful! The cake and food were overpriced for the mediocre taste. Parking made the entire experience stressful.
