It was fine.
If you need to grab a cocktail or a food item before or after a 92 Street Y show then this place is fine.

The waist staff was attentive, but not obtrusive or pushy. We enjoyed our experience there and would go back.

Stick to brunch-like dishes. Avoid $33 steak frites since their NY strip steaks are frozen: no taste, weird texture. A shame for the neighborhood.
Burgers and eggs will do it if you’re hungry!

First time here and we LOVED it. The meatball pizza was amazing, and the omelete with pancetta and amigo cheese was great. Cozy seating upstairs and a covered outside heated area was nice also. I definitely would recommend this place!

Disappointing. Basically an upscale diner. Not a Saturday night place ... better for brunch.

Worst service I’ve had in a long time. 45 minutes to get brunch of eggs and coffee and then everything came cold. No manager to be found. I won’t go back.

This is a nice little gem that was close to the 92 Y. Our waiter was very attentive. I had the mushroom flatbread and it was amazing. So many mushrooms! They did not skimp! My friend the Bosc Pear salad and it was very big. She loved it. She even game me some because to was so big and it really was delicious. I will definitely come back to Bocado Cafe. Thank you for the great food and service!

came at 4:40 on Saturday. given brunch menu. told waitress we were there for dinner. she said we would order at 5. at 5 I ordered chicken dinner. was told I would have to wait till 530 because they don't start cooking till 5. so I ordered a salad which I really did not want. my salad took 35 minutes to come. meaning I could have had the chicken. comped with a free cup of coffee.

Not great. Wine was super warm and the stemware was not impressive. Why would you order $150 bottle with no crystal stemware? I wouldn’t return.

Looking for a simple place for a meal on the UES and I stumbled on this restaurant which had, well-deserved, great reviews. I was not disappointed. The place is very popular and family oriented and the food was cooked to perfection and plentiful. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking to dine in this part of the UES while keeping the budget reasonable.

Pricey but good, fresh salads and friendly service. We only had 40 minutes and staff was very helpful in pointing to items that could quickly be prepared. I guess we weren’t prepared for a kids menu item to cost $15 for grilled cheese and fries .
