It was my birthday and I couldn't decide which of my 2 most fav places to go. Knowing I can never go wrong at the Café, we decided to go there. I am not joking when I say it was one of the most memorable birthday dinners we can recall. Everything and everyone was perfect! Thank you for the most wonderful night!

This place has amazing food that is something I would find in a city. It's current and delicious. I was surprised how quiet it was for a Friday night with the menu options and prices. I will definitely return!

Outstanding all the way around. Great service, food, selections, atmosphere and not at all jammed in. Plenty of space and relatively quiet.

This was a nice find in Wilkes-Barre, as we were traveling through and didn't want any of the chain restaurants. We had the daily special pork ("San Pedro," I think it was called) -- pork cutlets with salsa verde and tomatoes. Very tasty combination, carefully cooked and presented. A very nice salad came with it. Service was outstanding.

Conveniently located, decent ambience, good service, unfortunately the food was poor, especially when considering the price range. The menu led me to choose this over another nearby restaurant, it featured a nice balance of classic dishes but with some contemporary flair. I applaud the idea, but you have to be able to deliver on the food, and they did not. Both entrees were extremely disappointing - bland, poorly prepared and/or not as described on the menu.
