Accommodated dietary requests . Mostly good. Some foods highly seasoned, some bland . Coffee was warm, not hot.. not a great ending.

Open Table took my reservation and sent a confirmation email. We arrived only to find the restaurant was only open for lunch on Wednesday. Not dinner....drove 30 minutes to find the restaurant closed.

I would actually recommend the New Cafe w/ reservations. Three of us had dinner on Wed at 5:00. Only one other table was occupied. The server seemed inexperienced, didn't visit the table often enough, timing was completely "off", re: cocktail order, dinner order. The most confusing: a basket of soft pita. Nothing to spread or dip. Pita is non-appealing w/o a dipping sauce or spread. When we asked, no explanation. We asked for bread then. Bread was hard and dry, no butter offered. Not edible. I ordered a crab appetizer, excellent. we all ordered a roasted beet salad/walnuts/goat cheese. Dressing was very good but beets were NOT roasted and were served in big chunks w/ no dressing on them. I roast my own beets, these chunks were too big. My friends ordered a stuffed mushroom entree. Both said it was Ok-good. I ordered a crab cake. Before the entrees arrived, the owner Dominick came out to tell us he understood we had a problem or two. I explained, he brought out dipping sauce, not enough oil to spices, too strong and pungent for the pita and we had already had our first course. By the time we finished listing our concerns, I started on my crab cake. Good amt of crab, not interesting "cake" tho. and potatoes were overdone/almost black and asparagus was too wilted to eat. I took it home, ate the crab the next day. Dessert: One piece of a Tira mae su (spelling?) and my friend ordered that. She said it wasn't as good as the Olive Garden. The other dessert that the server recommended was gone. So two of us had no dessert. I like the effort of serving clean, simple, good food and I can see the intention is good but they either don't have their act together on Wednesday or ........

The atmosphere is very much a selling point for me. Outdoor dining is tucked away among a landscaped area adjacent to the garden center. Everything in Grey Stone is close by but divided out by rooms. It wasn’t even evident how close the parking lot was to where we were eating.
The food was quite good. It’s a lot of fresher fare than I’m used to getting when I’m in the Scranton area and that was appreciated.

We were very happy to learn of and dine at the New Cafe. The setting is serene and green surrounded by Greystone Gardesns. The restaurant was not too busy and the noise level was very comfortable with Middle Eastern music playing softly in the background. We started with a complimentary plate of cheese, pickles and olives served with pita bread. We tried the small size Mediterranean sampler plate which would have been plenty for 3 or 4 people. Everything was good, especially the baba ghanosh. We each had a salad, pear and fig for me and beet for my husband. They were a good size and we enjoyed both. For entrees we had branzino filet and salmon which were nicely prepared but by this time we were almost full and wanted to save room for dessert so we took enough for another meal home. For dessert we tried the coconut macaroons and an almond custard wrapped in phyllo. They were also delicious. We will be back.

Was not impressed with the salad; beets were bland; better if incorporated into salad as dressing. Candied walnuts not fresh.

The garden setting was lovely and comfortable. It was perfect for a delicious salad plate of the freshest vegetables complemented by tasty meat pies. Add refreshing cocktails and complete with coffee and a beautiful plate of Mediterranean desserts for a pleasant dining experience. The cafe never disappoints.

Service was great, salads and appetizers very good. Thelobster ravioli was good, however,the crab cakes were very disappointing. I was surprised cause I know they were very good for lunch the week before. It was like someone else made them. I was unhappy with them.

This is a hidden gem! Location is very unique, as it is located in a garden center. That is a great thing as one can walk around the beautiful landscape. Restaurant is cozy. Service was very good and most importantly the food delicious. Definitely worth checking out.....you won't be disappointed.

We love the New Cafe. It is our “go to” dining spot whenever we have guests in Clark’s Summit. We especially enjoy sitting outside on the patio in the Spring & Summer. Eating delicious food surrounded by gorgeous flowers & twinkling lights is such a calming, centering way to share a meal.

Dom, the owner and bartender, was very accommodating and friendly. Our meals were delicious with a mid-eastern accent to them. It's in a convenient location and we'd certainly go back there again.

I always enjoy bringing out of town guests here. It is especially pleasant when you can enjoy the beauty outside because of the garden setting, but I have been here in every season. The Middle Eastern fare makes for delightful and tasty fare at both lunch and at dinner.

The beet salad was superb -- so fresh and balanced in flavors, the crab cakes loaded with crab and flavor, and the desserts were delicious and beautifully presented. Cocktails were made to my request. The total dining experience was relaxing and totally enjoyable. Looking forward to a return visit soon.

My husband and I don't get out too often. This was a great place to talk to each other. It was not noisy. The food was different from what we are used to but delicious. We do like to try something different on occasion and this fit the bill. The service was excellent. We would go back again.

Set in Greystone Garden Center, New Cafe is a favorite dining spot. A comfortable setting, excellent service and a menu from which you cannot go wrong (plus daily specials) provides for a relaxing meal at an affordable price. Bonus. If by some chance you cannot eat your whole portion, take out containers are cardboard...recycling appreciated.

I wanted to try this place because the menu looked so interesting. The food was Mediterranean style and we all enjoyed it very much. We got there later than expected so I can not vouch for the surroundings because it was dark. The staff was lovely and accommodating. We had the Lamb Kabobs, The Steak and The Salmon with Lebanese Rice, all delicious. The salads were also minty and wonderful. I would recommend this place.

My daughter and I enjoyed a table by the window; lovely view. The food was very creative and yummy; fresh and seasonal with some very unique offerings. Our server was very kind and attentive, the atmosphere was peaceful, and my 10 day old grandchild slept the whole time. What's not to love!?
