Great for breakfast

We have always eaten breakfast here when staying at The Lucerne Hotel. They have a varied menu and the service is always prompt and friendly.

Had dinner here with a friend and we sat outside and enjoyed a lovely NYC summer evening. Service was excellent and the food very good - especially the risotto with corn, and also the kale salad.

Breakfast was wonderful. My mocha came in a bowl! The omelet was light and fluffy. The service staff was attentive and professional. Wish I could eat there more!

Took a party of 4 there for lunch. There were a few dietary needs and they went above and beyond in helping with all of them!

We stayed next door at the Lucerne, so we were lucky to have this so close. The ambience is lovely and the food is wonderful. They added a special touch to everything. The calamari was distinctively different and wonderful. They're also know for their hamburgers, which my husband enjoyed. Everyone in our party ordered something different, and we were all... More

I have been to this restaurant several time. I find the service and the food to have deteriorated. This week I went with friends. We wanted to sit inside with the air-conditioning. The management assured us that is was on but they also had several very large doors open to the tables outside. The temperature was increasingly uncomfortable - on... More

This was our "special" dinner during our NY trip and it was great. Food was outstanding: escargots, fritters, duck breast, slow-cooked pork and possibly the best hamburger ever. Wine list is massive but the staff was great at helping you narrow down your selection. Wine geeks and foodies take note.

A lovely intimate place on 1st Avenue, serving great French bistro food. Their specialty is mussels, although none of us had them on this visit. I had the roasted cod with an eggplant 'caviar' and a tomato coulis - delicious and cooked perfectly. Nice service, good wine list & a great Upper East find for me.

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.
