This is one of the hot spots near campus. There is great menu offerings and the food is tasty and reasonably priced.

Good food and vegetarian options in the restaurant upstairs, delicious (but pricey) mojitos in the bar section downstairs. Low-key night out with friends close to campus with mostly a Columbia/TC crowd. Outdoor seating when the weather's nice.

I enjoy going to that place, actually I am there almost every day either having a drink or dinner. I was sitting few tables away from the girl and her friends who were maybe 19-20y.o. spoiled brats, who made all that dramma on purpose. I suggest you and your friends to grow up, before you go to any kind of public places.

Tonight, I ordered a salad and three times was given the wrong meal-- which was twice the price. The last time, the waiter sarcastically told me that this is what I had ordered. They refused to give me the dish I had ordered, and when I requested the speak to the manager, he was even ruder than his waitstaff. He refused to charge me for the less expensive dish that I had ordered. When I told him he had lost my business and that of my friends, he said he didn't care.
I was extremely unsatisfied with the service-- a reputation I have heard reiterated time and again by locals. Don't waste your time; try another one of the other great restaurants in the area.

Pros: Good selection of food

Cons: Very very dark, terrible service

Before renovation, Amsterdam Cafe was your regular good-time place: college campus nearby, karaoke on wednesdays. A place where the price of a pitcher was low and the age of its drinker even lower.
And then they renovated.

My experience at the Amsterdam Lounge got off to a bad start because there was a giant fly buzzing at me and my silverware was not clean. The silverware was smudgy and also had a few "chunks" of food on the fork. Not appetizing! But I like the menu because it has a lot of choices, including some for vegetarians. The prices are decent. I had a bean and sweet potato burrito for $9 and it came with a great little salad. The service is good. I would recommend it if you are walking by, but it's not really destination.

Pros: Fair prices, near Columbia University

Cons: Could improve on cleanliness

This spacious Upper West Side restaurant and club is good for its nightlife, especially with its extensive tapas menu, which is balanced between American comfort food (wings, sliders, crab cakes) and Mediterranean fare (hummus, olives and…
