Fabulous food, drinks, a great table out on the patio with beautiful weather and of course AMAZING Service from everyone who works there, but especially Angela who is just one of the best servers ever! She always make us feel special and tonight was no different. Can't wait to go back again!!!

My first date with my now-wife was at Cafe Du Soleil, in May 2011, and we go back there for dinner in May every year. (We live in another part of the City now, so we don't get to West 104th Street more often.) One of the wonderful things about this tradition is that it's not just sentimental -- we always have a truly excellent meal. The food is consistently delicious, and the feeling of being transported to France never gets old. Our dinner at Cafe Du Soleil last night was no exception, and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously.

About the restaurant
Inspired by the Japanese Bonsai Tree which is a miniature tree cultivated to resemble nature in a modest space and nurtured with artistic interaction, Bonsaii Tapas & Wine Bar is the ultimate representation of its namesake.
Our cuisine is inspired in International tapas, where everybody will feel welcomed and find something of their taste, putting spin on classic dishes and bringing creative new ones. Our "Secret Garden" is the perfect hidden gem in Midtown East for finding calm in the stress and noise from the city , located walking distance to Central Park and Bloomingdale's and in between some of the most popular avenues (Lexington Ave and Park Ave).
