"Cesca used to be a neighborhood gem but, sadly, it has fallen on its knees. The worst part about it are the front desk greeters who make you feel they are doing you a huge favor by escorting you to your table (it's a loooong walk). The person we had was surly and completely without affect. Seemed bored to tears. The rest of the evening followed without much incident ... food good, service ok (although strange long waits and cold calamari did not impress). Overall we were disappointed and won't be back. Sorry to see this one go, but it just doesn't have what it once did. Perhaps the bar's still an option. Wine was high point."

"I love CESCA but my last visit was marred by the special appetizer of fried calamari with spicy tomato sauce. I have rarely ever had a more rubbery inedible version of this dish. I left most of it uneaten on the plate. The simply grilled chicken seemed to be a much smaller portion than I remember and the teensy amount of arugula they put on is a joke. It is nothing but a garnish and should not even be listed as a component of the dish. The service was good enough although it was so busy it was hard to get my waiter's attention."

"Solid food, waiter had good suggestions but seemed to get sidetracked after delivering our food (never returned for second drink orders). Reasonable wine list, and food for all appetites and tastes. Great for sitting at the bar and grabbing drinks and a quick bite before a show or after work. We've been looking for a replacement after our favorite restaurant closed (Commerce); this is not it, but fits in as part of the rotation of UWS spots."

"We recently went to Cesca for the first time in five years. While we previously liked the restaurant, we were unfortunately disappointed this time. Service was exceedingly spotty. We had about 3 different waiters over the course of our meal, including one who had no idea what we'd ordered and couldn't discuss the wine, and we waited 20 minutes after finishing our appetizers for the entrees to appear. The food was mediocre and very expensive for its not-great quality. It felt like red-sauce suburban Italian. Finally, the ambiance was bizarre. At one point we were the only people in the restaurant under the age of 55 or so. Nothing against the older generation, but this did not give me the impression that the place is shooting for the stars. Cesca needs to pick up the pieces or give up the ghost."

"Different waiters covered our table thru-out our meal so there was some disorganization. One brought us wine we hadn't ordered. But they all were nice. Food was good. Setting is comfortable."

"Very handsome restaurant. Wonderful bar. Sat at a comfortable corner booth.
Food quality and food presentation was very, very good. Perfect portion sizes. Two things came up short for myself and my dinner mate. The first was the service. The gal who waited on us was less than what would be expected at a restaurant of this calibre. She forgot to quote main entree special. We had to re call her to do so. Poured wine without asking- brought the check without our asking. Unusual for an expensive restaurant. Second thing, though the wine list was impressive, I feel that there should also have been a greater selection of medium priced bottles- there are so many great ones out there. Other than that- a very good dining experience. We will go back
