I went there in the late afternoon after a full day at the Met. We beat the crowd and got a corner bench by the window. It was comfortable, the waiter was excellent, and the food was very good. Not world class but very good. My wife, daughter and I shared the kale ceasar salad, burrata agnolotti, the hanger steak... More

I've been going here for at least 5 or 6 years. The food is amazing and always fresh. Lately I've noticed that it's been busier during the week so I would suggest a reservation. The organic half chicken is a life saver!!!

This is a nice restaurant to meet up with friends or even for a date night. Great decor, atmosphere, service and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend a visit. Plates are a little small....more like tapas to order one or two plates and share the delicious food.

The acoustics here are horrible. Don't go if you want to have a conversation! That being said, the food is GREAT, service is wonderful and the prices are reasonable for NY. Just go with folks that you don't want to listen to!

Thoroughly enjoyed this small upbeat restaurant in my daughters new neighborhood. Our server from Prague was a delight and was spot on with her recommendations. My 15 year old niece loved her gnocchi and my black pasta dish was a highlight. Will definitely return :)

Sojourn is a great spot for a solid meal. The front room feels like a neighborhood wine or cocktail bar and dining room in back is casual and relaxed. This is not your typical UES restaurant with white tablecloths or a beer bar with 20 screens for your sports fix. You're more likely to find people in their 30's and... More

Sojourn was a comfortable refuge on a cold snowy January night after a hard day of apartment hunting. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. I had the hanger steak with roasted mushrooms and whipped potatoes. It was scrumptious. My daughter and I split the cheesecake which was best every cheesecake in memory. My daughter is moving to UES from... More

Came here for a late night din din with my boyfriend after seeing La Boheme. We made a reservation and we were taken care of right away. I had my drink of choice (Titos on the rocks, extra dirty).

Chose this restaurant for location and reasonable prices and selections. Maid a reservation for 6:30pm and met our other couple there who had already arrived seated at a nice table with pillows against the wall. Waiter was pleasant and gave us the specials and made recommendations as the room was dark and hard to see the menu. We sat for... More
