I love Cesca. I'm always excited to eat there. However, not the best choice for a busy Saturday night. As two couples, we were there this past weekend, and they clearly overbooked. It was a mad house. We were seated an hour after our reservation...More

We ate last night for the first time since the restaurant has been renovated. The menu was really expanded. The tuna and salmon entrees were outstanding.

One of my favorite restaurants on the Upper West Side. Food is delicious and the menu has a good variety of options. There are many gluten free options as well. The restaurant has an elegant atmosphere without being too pricey. The waitstaff is very friendly.

Attractive restaurant with Good Location, food and service quite good. Very noisy bar area. Dining area a bit quieter. Large menu, good selection of Italian and continental dishes. Two shared the 1/ 2 duck. Good size drinks.

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
