Arriving late, to our weekend rental place on 96th, we were pleased to find a row of restaurants a couple of blocks away. This seemed the most cheerful and was reassuringly busy, though not crammed. Cheery waiters and an enticing menu, although a bit long. I had oysters and slow cooked rib, she had salmon. Both tasty and in European... More

Went for lunch . Service was slow though it wasn't crowded. Food was just okay. Nothing special, and can do better in the neighborhood.

I used to eat here for brunch and always had decent food. Love their biscuit. Went this past Thursday and wow... My kale salad was bad. Bad as in the brown colored spoiled kale used did not taste very fresh. Not to mention the inattentive waitstaff and busboys who spoke no English. Hand signals even failed. I ended up ordering...

We discovered this restaurant when staying on Lexington Ave during a 2 night visit to NYC. The prices were even cheaper than some we are used to in Florida---mimosas for $5 and a grilled vegetable sandwich for $9. Delicious food, nice portion sizes, prompt and friendly service and suited our budget perfectly. Small booths / tables inside and additional seating... More

I have eaten at the Barking Dog Restaurant on the upper east side many times in the past and the food was decent. I went a few months ago and the food was very disappointing. I decided to try the restaurant once again last night. What a mistake. We went for dinner and the portion of food was small, the... More

Went downstairs to have our last lunch in NYC before going home. Saturday - crowded with families and couples, yet service was quick and the food good in every way.

Had lunch Sunday morning. It was packed at 1:00, but luckily they sat us immediately at the bar. Had the spinach-potato dill pancakes and the BDNYC lunch. Great coffee.

Local and good value for money but since it changed hands the service isn't so good. They seem to give preference to their take out customers. Great that your pooch can sit outside in the Summer if you want to take them.

Want a proper full on 3 eggs, bacon, sausage toast or biscuit heart attack on a plate to set you up for a day exploring NYC then look no further. Perfect friendly diner that does exactly what it says on the tin and for a modest price (compared with the mid town options). Emily the waitress was amazing too. Go... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
