'Cesca Ratings and Reviews
Happily enjoyed our meal at 'Cesca last night. The food was delicious. We shared a fantastic Kale Caesar, the mushroom ravioli and roast duck. A beautifully paired bottle of wine complemented the meal as did the port served to us with our dessert selections. I suggest the panna cotta and warm chocolate cake.
brought the boys here for a bachelor weekend. the pretty bartender made them very happy serving them big old drinks. the food delivered to the table was better than last time. they left a bunch of happy bums. large plates, lots of food, cold beers. doesn't get better than that.
Passed this place after an event at the Beacon and always wanted to go back for a try. Very happy I did. The music and vibe are super hip for the stuffy UWS places I've visited. It's got a cool European feel. The food - trust me - it does not matter what you order - will be a home run. My fish was perfectly cooked and served just as I like it - whole! My partners pasta dish was delicious, mixed seafood with their homemade pasta - served al dente - the way it should be!
My sister was in town visiting and wanted some good Italian. 'Cesca came up as a neighborhood gem - it's sure is! From the warm welcome at the door by the GM to the fast and friendly service, we were so pleased. The food was absolutely delicious. We shared a number of plates that are perfectly portioned for two. The beet salad, pasta with clams, NY strip steak and tiramisu, WOW! I can't wait to return! Neither can my sister!
We enjoyed our dinner at 'Cesca very much. The brighter look of the once dim restuarant invites a new feel of elegance. Their menu, although similar has taken on a different flare. There is more attention to detail. The flavors are all harmonious and delightful.
Visiting from out of town and was happy to find this place. It's warm hospitality was welcoming on this brutal winter's night. The musical selection, drinks and bar atmosphere were fun and entertaining. The food was pure pleasure. Everything was served with a smile an every bite better than the last. You must try their grilled octopus!
In this weather who would have thought we would have found anything open for dinner! Thank you to 'Cesca, not only a warm place to unwind, but also for the meal you packed up to go for my mother who could literally not weather the storm and join us! We are truly grateful!
Visiting for the holidays and this place came up at a holiday party. We are so happy to have listened to the suggestion as we enjoyed everything about 'Cesca. The food was delicious and watching them in the kitchen made it more inviting. The service was good and the music was very cool!
Made my reservation 15m before walking in so I wasn't surprised when I had to wait a few minutes for my table. The bar was lively. Good music. The drink was pretty good too - pomegranate martini. Went down way too easy. Dinner was delicious. Salmon was perfectly cooked. Pasta was al dente, the way it should be. Good size portions leave room for every course.
