The set-up is odd. Our server kept forgetting about us. My boss and myself each had to get up from our table to find him. The food is great but it is a pricey place. I would say more a high-end business lunch. Will I go back there again? Probably not. Price doesn't equal the quantity of the food we... More

Love the new location, but the service was slow and mediocre at best, and the items we selected from the menu were interesting but not fresh. We won't be returning.

Trendy, smart casual, but TV's showing sports? We couldn't understand the plan of the atmosphere, nor were we impressed with the service. One of our diners got sick from the pork tacos, I was not served my iced tea until late in the meal after I pressed, the thick, greasy bread served with Arabic style appetizers, the service was slow...

Enjoyed a margarita pizza here last week with my daughter. It was very fresh and baked to a delicious thin- crust crunch in the brick oven. Also had a Caesar salad, that had a great dressing on it. Service was very friendly and quick when we told our server that we needed to be on time for a meeting. Noticed... More

We have visited many times over the years. We love their appetizers and soups as well as the main course lunch menu. We have done dinner as well. Best time to go is off peak hours since they don't take reservations. Highly recommend as a fallback if you don't know where to go!

I was here on 1-26-15. I had their rueben which was very good. It came with a side of orzo, mixed veggies, or their 'mashed potato' of the week. The potato was highly recommended by the waiter, but I was definitely not a fan. I believe it was mixed with red salsa and swiss cheese. Odd flavor. Had their house... More

Cafe Eccell is a very nice restaurant with good food, but it is a bit on the expensive side. The food is tasty and fresh, so even with high prices, it is worth the splurge on occasion.
