On entering the restaurant we were welcomed with a smile by the Manager. The atmosphere had a French feel which was immediately relaxing. The staff are well trained and know their craft and are prepared to offer help in making a choice. The food arrived very quickly and was presented with skill. Having visited several restaurants in New York during... More

We love the ever changing fresh menu at Cafe Magnolia. And, we like that it's BYOB! It's still too cool out now but the patio is excellent during warmer months. Super friendly wait staff too! Awesome experience every time!

I used to work right by here and would order lunch a few times a month. Food was always good, a little pricey but you pay for better quality! Never had dinner there but I heard the food is good!

Cafe Magnolia's is my favorite local restaurant. The menu is broad enough to please every palate and the wait staff always pleasant and efficient. I love their lemon risotto and order it every time I go Even if the dish I want has a different side dish they are accommodating to my wishes for the lemon risotto without extra cost.

Nice little place for dinner (a date or some friends). It's hard to find a place that makes a steak to your liking, they are always over done, not here. I ordered medium and it came out medium. Don't forget that it is BYO!

This is a great restaurant to come for lunch with friends or your significant other. The menu selections are widely varied and the homemade soups are always very good. The only drawback, in my opinion, is that it is a BYOB. The prices they charge are more in line with a restaurant with a bar. Having said that, I have... More

Every time I come here for both lunch and/or dinner the food is great as well as the service. The menu is very diverse and I think that there is something for everyone to eat.

A nice meal, but the place was a bit run down (rustic but with a bit of a "needs a coat of paint" thing going on.) The menu choices are good, and attentive service. The food was "good" but not exceptional for the price. Have had better meals for less money. So - suspect you'll enjoy it - but that... More
