Great American food, good for brunches and big lunches. Catered well for my toddler with allergies. We found a table without booking (arrived just after midday) and then it got really busy.

Average-nice food, friendly staff, authentic NY atmosphere. A little too crowded, but the staff handled that pretty well in a professional and friendly way.

My wife and I had breakfast at GETE on a Saturday morning. We arrived a couple of minutes before it opened and there were a small queue. But we got a table and ordered coffee, fresh orange juice and an omelet each. The food is excellent. Especially their strawberry butter taste very good. This restaurant can be recommended to anyone... More

This place lived up/down to the 4 stars they post on the wall. Some aspects of the visit were great like the entrees but it lacks in decor and service. The line outside was long and disorganized where the guy working there told everyone how "not smart" he is. Once inside it took an hour for the whole process. My... More

If you like quaint looking cafe then this is the place for you to sip your latte or even cocktail. Had breakfast with my kid. Mac and cheese was so-so only. I preferred smaller portions so I ordered a half sandwich with soup. Like the latte though. Food quality is within my expectations.

My fiancé and I found this little gem whilst staying in the Upper West Side in September. Our first visit was truly amazing. The staff couldn't have been more attentive if they tried. Great food combined with great service. It was because of this we decided to pay the restaurant a second visit. Sure it was the weekend and so... More

Well the place is a typical American dinner like. Nothing fancy or special about the setting or decoration The food is good However I wanted some additional items that weren't included on the menu and I believe they should be available at any breakfast location The pancakes were delicious and the coffee was great However the service was relatively slow

We found this place to be very welcoming. It is homehow true that service can be a little slow, but very enthusiastic on the other hand. Food here is very good and the plates are large. We asked for eggs with sausage and hash browns (which were great). Also the pancakes were awsome. A nice way to start your day.

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.
