Service was poor, food average. Would definitely not return, can get so much better value for the money in other places on a 0.2 miles radius.

We were starving, hot, tired and really getting fed up with paying $10 for a sandwich that would cost <£4 in London. Having traipsed up and down lots of eateries on the Upper West after coming out of the Natural History museum we finally found Cafe 82 and how pleased we were. Lovely New Yorkers serving us, really attentive and... More

My husband had a Reuben made with pastrami and it was also huge. He loved it. Will definitely eat here next... More

We ate breakfast here every day of our holiday, except one. Open at 6.30am, I was a fan of the "no. 1" breakfast. Two eggs (I liked poached), fried potato, toast, orange juice and bottomless coffee for $6.50 (plus tax and service). My husband had the pancakes with bacon, coffee and orange juice for $8.50. This isn't a fancy place... More

Literally a whole cow on my pastrami sandwich and probably the population of the North Sea on my wife's tuna melt. Not very family friendly or patient with our two year old

Very close to our hotel so we are here several times. But it's worth traveling for as well. We dined in as well as had delivery and no issues. Amazing French onion soup and mozzarella sticks. Huge filling meals. Both breakfast and dinner were amazing

In a less competitive diner intensive world, this diner would rank one star higher. Extensive menu with well prepared foods. Very friendly staff, responsive to special requests, and knowledgeable. Very good cleanliness including in the men's room.

Standard diner menu, well done, with some interesting additions, including lamb shank, potato pancakes, and matzo ball soup. Staff is friendly and attentive. Not far from the 79th street subway stop. We'll be back.

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.
