I like the history here. The food is fairly good, but lunch menu is lacking. The host is kind of lounge lizard looking and is rather creepy. Service is ok, but could be friendlier. The old music playing is rather depressing.

I have benn to City Hall Cafe several times over the years and I have never had a bad food experience there. Last weekend I had the rack of lamb and it was great. There were 9 of us altogether and everyone raved about their meals. Waitress was on top of things through out the entire meal. Chuncky monkey for dessert was great also.

Hostess: chilly chilly, chilly. Made res at 11 am. Asked for an inside table but was seated outside despite empty tables when we arrived and when we left.

Waited a while for service. Server: tepid, tepid, tepid. Waited for drinks - several times. Drinks: Well done! Food: Really good! kudos to the chef. lamb special great. pork special great. (pasta was a bit dry, though) Overall experience was akin to going to a spa and feeling like you're inconveniencing the person giving you the massage. Too bad. So sad.

Traveling between NJ and Boston, stopped off here in the hope of finding a decent lunch. doesn't look much from the outside, but when in, it turned out to be a great bar, great atmosphere decent, but slightly limited lunch menu, but the food was good and sensibely priced.
