“We enjoyed our meal at Cafe Luka”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

We had a nice meal on Sunday night at Cafe Luka. My husband loved their Rueben with Patrami - the meat was tasty and the sauce was homemade and delicious! I even dipped my fries in it and added it to my Roumanian Steak Sandwich. The Roumanian had lots of marinated slices of steak on a fresh, toasted bun. Their fries were perfectly crispy and hot. It is a beautiful building inside with lots of woodwork and cutglass sconces. The only complaint I had was that the coleslaw that came with our sandwiches tasted like it wasn't perfectly fresh. They had a good selection of beer that was served in nicely chilled mugs with a wedge of lemon. I was pleasantly surprised by the prices which were actually cheaper than those at a downtown restaurant in my home city.

“15% discount!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

If you stay at Helmsley Medical Tower, they give you a discount, but I walked there and the ambience is nice and the people there were always ready to help.

“Local lunch, good value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2012

Stopped by for a quick lunch. Good variety of lunch specials. Food well prepared. Close to local hospitals. Tuna wrap was large and tasty. Lentil soup was excellent. House special - turkey, swiss, tomato on rye was large portion and real turkey.

“Good Breakfast, Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2012

Only a block or so from NY-Presbyterian Guest Facility where we were staying. Our breakfast was basic but very good. I joked with our waiter that one menu item said, “Bacon, Sausage, AND Ham,” which he admitted was wrong, the “and” should have been “or.” When my breakfast came I did receive all three anyway, which was not the aim of my comment, but which was a very nice touch on his part. Too often these days restaurants charge individually for every item on the menu, even for breakfast; so it’s heartening for me to get a reasonably priced meal with generous servings, no cutting corners on the quantity, with fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee included. The staff is friendly and attentive. I’d go again.
