The service was abysmal on the day I dined here. I know restaurants are short-staffed. And that includes the kitchen.

But……there has to be some sort of consistency offered

I’ll be back. I love the food.

Just the service is always kinda spotty

Excellent cocktails and would have enjoyed more of them had the servers checked in with us more frequently. The food was good (truffle pizza & burger), but the service was less than desirable. We waited at least a half hour before ordering drinks and tracked down the server to get our check after several hours. Would like to go back and support this local spot, but hope they get a bit more organized to enhance the customer experience!

We got there before 11pm and the told us that the kitchen was about to close but we could order quickly. However the person attending never asked for our order, and came later to say that the kitchen was closed. We order some drinks and they didn’t have it either. Horrible service

I love this place. The service is terrific and the staff lovely. The food is very good. The coffee… don’t get me started… anItalian friend, who lives in a state of constant desperation over coffee, comes from the East Side to the West Side for Da Capo’s coffee.

At night the music can be too loud. They need how to get their name out n the UWS and focus on being food forward, rather than chasing a crowd that wants a “vibe”.

Did I mention that the staff is great?? It’s is.

The oven was being replaced, so we really couldn't order food. Had a couple of cold appetizers. The hummus was good. Couldn't order coffee, either, after 4 p.m. I was told.

I never write reviews but I have to with this one. The service was great and our waitress was fantastic, which was Da Capo's only redeeming quality. The food was not at alllll what it should be for the price, which were tiny, poorly cooked dishes. And they were blaring Lizzo remixes so loud I couldn't even focus on what I, or my partner, was saying. Don't get me wrong, I love Lizzo as much as the next millennial female, but the music was so loud (and bad) it was actually jarring. We ate and left as quickly as we could.

Cooking with way too much salt. The restaurant area is dull and uninviting.

Menu was different than what they had on line. When I asked the waitress she said that that was the menu in another location, it was not. I had looked up the right location. What I ordered wasn't very good - not much flavor.

Perfect for catching up with a friend or a date. There was an extensive drink and food menu and the food was excellent. We shared a salad, charcuterie board and a few sides, and all were delicious. Ambience is nice but not pretentious- a step up from the standard UWS places (where we usually frequent), but totally reasonably priced. I’ll be back!!

Horrible experience. Came here with my family to have brunch for Mother’s Day and left annoyed and hungry. Tried to order coffee and was told coffee was going to take a long time because there were a lot of coffee orders in the front. I’m sorry, what? You’re a cafe. You should be able to pour a simple cup of coffee. Needless to say, it never came. Bloody Mary’s were watered down like they had been sitting on the bar for a while. Our food all arrived at different times, had to ask multiple times for things like silverware, omelettes were so small and all undercooked/wet in the middle. $17 for a half-cooked omelette. Waitress kept bringing dishes out and she didn’t know what they were or what table they were for. As someone who’s worked in the restaurant industry, this is absurd. We sat for an hour and a half before the last of our entrees came out. This place might be great to pop in for a coffee to go, but honestly I wouldn’t bother, there are so many other places. Do yourself a favor, stay away.

One very busy waitress covering the brunch rush. Handled it well, food and drinks were timely and tasty.

Decor, if you can call it that, is abysmal. Only one main dish was judged good. Appetizers and main dishes all came together, resulting in one dish being sent back to be warmed up. Waitress was overworked and didn't understand English. We were actually three people; two had dessert also and one really liked the tiramisu.

Nice back room good for small private parties, but when the restaurant's empty, the service attention is sparse. Food was good albeit a bit expensive and fewer choices than I would have liked. Prepared nicely and tasty though. My biggest complaint is that the explanations, both on the menu and by the server, were not clear. The Beet Salad which in dozens of other restaurants come with a modicum of greens, was only beets and not a "salad" per se. A bit misleading. Also a dish we ordered we were told came with a dairy sauce when it was not stated that way on the menu. If you have any allergies or sensitivities or aversions to certain foods, make sure to be specific when telling them and have them double check with the kitchen to make sure it will be prepared the way you expect it to or you may be surprised or disappointed.

Staff was polite and friendly, cocktails were tasty but took exceptionally long to arrive, not sure if they were understaffed?
