Many eating places like to think that they offer good food and service. NYC was a little disappointing overall, however, Cafe Viand was a favourite of ours. They didn't pretend to be gourmet, but the food was always very nice and the staff were great. Perhaps you wouldn't travel a long way to eat here per se, however, if you... More

Eaten here many times now. Great service, great menu choices and I know I can always get some vegetables here! Burgers and pizzas get too much after a while so I switched to salads, but needed vegetables - so Cafe Viand are my go to for dinner when in NYC.

We were staying at The Beacon Hotel and this is next door! What a find. Great choice of meals. We went for dinner, but they are open all day. Good service and good food.

Want a place that has good food and service with a smile, this is your place. Had a homemade salmon burger over lettuce and a salad on the side. Very healthy and tasty.

The meal and service was very good but there is a service charge added onto the bill, I don't agree with that as I should have the choice.

Located next to the Hotel Beacon and the Beacon Theatre this cafe has convenience and comfort food down pat. Homemade meatloaf, great burgers and a decent Reuben and the house red is OK as well. On the high side of diners we visited in our 9 days in the upper west side.

Because of its proximity to the Hotel Beacon, this over-priced coffee shop has a steady stream of new customers, mostly tourists, who don't realize at first what an over-priced but otherwise very ordinary eatery this is. If you're visiting, look around for other options. Locals would never eat there.

Breakfast was really good. Oatmeal and omelet were exactly what you would expect in an coffeeshop. In the evening we were kinda tired and didnt feel like walking to a different restaurant. Since we had a good experience in the morning we decided to go back in the evening. This was a mistake. The food was salty and greasy. The... More

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.
