Good breakfast

Had breakfast there with husband and another couple. A very busy restaurant. We all enjoyed our breakfasts therefore the "Very Good" rating but I wouldn't rate the service as very good; the staff seemed very curt with us, one person at the table did not get the fruit salad she ordered in lieu of... read more

After arriving a bit early for a show at the Beacon Theater one Saturday evening, Yelper Ben Y and I thought it would be nice to stop for a cappuccino and a couple slices of cake. We walked by Viand and happily entered. We were seated in a booth in the back along a window - my seat of the... More

Had breakfast here every day for a week and a few evening meals while staying at the Beacon. Excellent food in an authentic American dinner with friendly, helpful staff. It is also affordable and has an inclusive service charge which was a welcome change for N.Y. Best recommendation is that it is very popular with the locals. Added significantly to... More

We were staying at NYLO and staff there recommended this to us. I felt obliged to try someone new but it wasn't as good and this became our regular breakfast stop. Tried something new each day and the staff were always will to accommodate our poached eggs on toast requirements without all the potatoes. Kids liked a lolly or sweets... More

Just a very regular, old fashioned diner, if you're into that sort of thing. They automatically added 20 dollars to our tab as gratuity, because we were tourists.

I found it difficult to fault this experience. We too stayed at the Beacon next door, on 4th April, so for convenience alone Cafe Viand scored highly. The menu was varied enough and the service cheerful and well paced. The food quality was so good in the evening that we decided to have breakfast there too the next morning and... More

Our first night in New York, the doorman at our hotel recommended this little cafe, and it turned out to be a great find. The burgers are quite good - I had the turkey burger and it was well done without being dry, which is difficult to manage with turkey. Since we were staying at the NYLO, just a couple... More

Breakfast was alright, bacon was a bit overdone. Coffee was poor. But overall we were satisfied. Staff was alright but definitely were being "effective", dropping the bill of before we were done.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
