I love this cafe. The setting is straight out of Vienna. The cuisine is Austrian. Wonderful selection of wines and beers and of course there is always the coffee. The service is spot on. The atmosphere so European. The food is great. A special spot that those in the know know!

Stopped by to have some coffee before visiting the museum, ended up having lunch, dessert, and three types of coffee! Apricot crepes had a perfect balance of sweet and tart, Mozarttarte had pistachio and dark chocolate flavors mingling happily without overpowering each other, and the Feuilletine pastry was divine (a must for hazelnut lovers like myself). Thank you!

Frustrated at not being able to visit the Gallery for German and Austrian Art (a.k.a. Neue Galerie) in New York because it was closed, we opted on a recent hot afternoon to have refreshments at the museum’s café, named after one of its founders. And we rejoiced at this decision! From the typical furnishings of a Viennese-style café to the... More

What a treat for the palate. A menu offering delicious foods and outrageous cakes and pastries. This is a must do. You should not pass this up. Go to the Met Museum and walk here for a late afternoon snack.

Not for everyday but for that moment of remarkable, old world Viennese food, charm and service, dine here. From the appetizers to the desserts, all is well done! PS Try to get a table along Fifth Ave. windows.

Decor is very traditional and rich. Service is typical first class European. Food is very traditional and delicious, featuring Austrian and German dishes. Veal schnitzel is to die for, the sausages are very authentic German style. The cakes and pastries and superb, especially the apricot crepes! This is the fourth time I have eaten here and I am sure I... More

We ate both breakfast and lunch at the Café Sabarsky, located in the Neue Museum. It has a Viennese menu and old world feel. The food was beautifully presented on white linen table cloths in a dark wood paneled room. It is pricey, but we loved the experience!!! If you are spending the day on the "Museum Mile", don't miss... More

It is fun to go to the Cafe. It is like stepping back in time and location. Fun! The food and service are fine but not the best part of the experience. I still so enjoy going there.

Awesome Austrian/German cafe at the first floor of Neue Gallery with authentic cuisine. Perfect cakes especially Mozarttorte and Feuiletine. Good sausages on a list and great selection of German beer. Hot chocolate a la Sabarsky was also delish. This cafe is expensive but has an adorable atmosphere and worth the money.

Vrery good and surprising German-Austrian restaurant in Museum og German Art. Viennese dishes were particularly good and made with care. Service was a bit spotty, with some mixed up orders and a somewhat hurried pace, ut worth a try if you'r in or near the museum.
