We went to Viand most mornings for breakfast as it wa next to our hotel. The food was okay. The prices about average for New York. What let's it down the most is the miserable, unwilling and unfriendly woman on the till by the door who greets you! She didn't smile the whole time we went there. Not a good... More

We went to the cafe viand because of a recommendation of the concierge in our hotel. It is on one hand typical american, but at the same time it is not. Yes, there is a waiting line and you have to wait to be seated, but once you are finished with the excellent (in our case) brunch, nobody is rushing... More

We stopped in on a Tuesday night in October right before a show at the Beacon. We were told that the wait would be around 10 minutes for a table, which it was. The entire restaurant was packed with show-goers and people from the neighboring hotel. Once seated at a table for two, a waiter came and took our order.... More

Awful Management and staff. Rude beyond belief as well. Don't bother coming in for a coffee either. You may even be asked to move your table, as we were, if you don't spend enough money. If I could, I'd give "0" points, but 1-star is generous. With so many great places to choose from in this neighborhood, there's no reason... More

Unless you love rude waitstaff and average cuisine- don't bother coming here. You may be accosted by a Bagel Nazi. Cafe viand was our first stop in NYC's Upper West Side. We were seated and then asked to move tables because we "Didn't order enough food" Apparently there's a quota here on how much money they want you to spend.... More

This cafe was right next to the hotel Beacon I was staying in and so was very convenient for one evening when we were exhausted from sightseeing and didn't want to walk anywhere else. Good quick service, no wait to get a table but it was bustling. I had a burger; not the best I've had but certainly decent enough.... More

We went here for a late night dessert and coffee. Hubby had a ice cream sundae, I had a slice of cherry pie ala mode. Last year we had dinner here so you can't go wrong choosing this restaurant if you are staying on the upper west side.
