I have lived in this neighborhood for 6 years and can remember the good old days when Panorama was a charming restaurant with outdoor seating and was so busy there was often a wait for tables. The food was very good so the wait was worth it

Panorama is a classic example of why most Mom and Pop restaurants close. After moving to its new and inferior location, the place is like eating at a graveyard. The food has gone downhill and the service is horrible since they cant keep any good servers since there is no business. The owner has become absolutely miserable, and its obvious that he is struggling to stay in business. With so many good Italian restaurants to choose from with better atmosphere and service and better food, there is no reason to patronize this place unless you simply want to prolong the misery that is Panorama

Pros: if you like quiet restaurants - nobody ever eats here

Cons: rude service, over-priced food, horrible atmosphere

Cafe Panorama is one of my favorite places to eat. The food is excellent. I've had many of the entrees and have never been disappointed. The prices are very reasonable. The service is warm and friendly. The ambiance is cozy. And the owner Nunzio Montagna makes everyone feel welcome and at home.

Always quality food, lovely owner.... the only complaint is that sometimes the waitstaff stinks. Great spot for brunch, lunch and dinner.

I have been to the new location and must say it was FANTASTIC!! The seafood appetizers were great and the main dishes( we ordered 4 different kinds) were very well prepared. I have gone back 4 more times since its opening and have ordered other dishes from the menu so that I can give my BEST opinion and was NOT disappointed at all. I have tried the chicken, steak, seafood and their fish dishes and all were "DELICIOSO". The staff were very attentive and the place is very cozy with its great decor and ambience. Great first date restaurant. My next trip will be to try their Brunch. I am planning on going back for more and have recommended this place to ALL my friends.

I totally disagree with ysettle's review, I have been going to Panorama since it originated, And I have always been treated like royalty by the owner and staff. The food in the new place in my opinion is better, and the owner is always welcoming and doesn't know what to do next to make you feel at home. As a neighbor, maybe you should take into consideration that owning a business in these hard economical times is not easy and be more supportive.

No reservations, Saturday night dinner date around 9pm. Walked in and sat at one of the tables on the second floor balcony. No complaints about the sangria, the food was fine... not bad, not the best, but good. The service was very friendly though, joked around with our waiter which made the night more enjoyable, and made us welcome, not rushing us for anything. Prices were average city pricing. If I'm in the UES and the weather's beautiful, I'd go back and sit outside again for a dinner.

Large menu can be overwhelming, but we've liked everything we've tried. Decent sangria, good amount of outdoor seating. Be sure to sit upstairs if it's open. Welcoming and friendly service.

The food is just not good - the chicken was dry and tasteless, and the sangria had no flavor. There are better places in the neighborhood which cost less and offer much better food

I think the space here is great. However, when you go out to eat you at least expect good service and food to fill that space. Panorama had overcooked pasta, flavorless sauce, and a very rude hostess. So you're better off sitting on your coach and ordering yummy take out.

Pros: Nice looking place.

As always on a beautiful evening in the UES it is increasingly harder to find a table outdoors. After 15 minutes of hostesses telling me a table for two was going to be over an hour I stumbled upon Panarama. My date and I only waited five minutes, were quickly given our wine, and ordered dinner. The appetizer came out promptly as did the food. I would not say the food was excellent, but it was tasty and the portions were sizable. The waiter was very friendly, and the price was right. If you are stuck in a jam and are looking for an affordable, comfortable, outdoor dining experience go to Panarama Cafe.

Our waitress was... odd. She didn't really understand what we said (she spoke English, though) and we had to ask her for oil and vinegar three times before she brought it. Also, I ordered the linguine with mussels... and was brought the mussels appetizer. Because the food had taken so long at that point, I didn't feel like having it switched. So. I only really go for the sangria.

Hardly makes up for the cold apetizers and the bland food.

the food and drinks overall are great, but the lamb chops are to die for. I ordered 2 servings I liked it so much. My wife ordered the sauted calimari with spinich and keeps asking me to go back for it.

Myself and a group of friends were recently in New York visiting from the Buckeye State and a suggestion was made to embark on the Panorama Cafe on the Upper East Side. We called ahead and were greeted by the most fantastic customer service I have ever encountered. They were very friendly but not overbearing, excellent time on order turnover, and I didn't run out of a drink at any point. (I highly recomment the Shiraz). The food was top notch and very affordable. You leave the place feeling welcomed, full, and in an excellent mood.

The people who work here make you feel welcome from the moment you step in to the moment you leave. They are truly hospitable Customer service is making people feel like they are at home and Panarama has mastered this art.

We had brunch there one nice summer day. The food was pretty good - no complaints. Also they have a nice sidewalk seating area. The brunch was a good mix of breakfast, sandwiches, and salads. The service was fine and seemed pleasant enough. We would most likely return, especially on a nice day to sit outside.

This past sunday me and my girl stopped in Panorama for lunch. We left the place feeling like we had made a great discovery. The first thing that jumps out at you is HOW AFFORDABLY PRICED the PLACE IS. She had a bloody mary, it was nice and spicy. I had a margarita on the rocks with salt. The rim was loaded with so much salt, it was a work of art. We gave our order, and like what seemed like only 5 minutes , BAAM we had our food. I've never gotten a meal faster. She had a salad chicken. I had a chicken wrap that was excellent. The waiter was friendly. Got their coconut sorbet for dessert, comes right inside the coconut shell SO GOOD!!!!!!! We will definetely stop in again sometime during the weekdays, because I hear they have an upstairs dining area with outdoor patio seating!!!!

Panorama is a great spot to eat in the summer. They have extensive outdoor seating in the summer and a pretty good brunch option. The food is solid, not great or bad. I mostly enjoy sitting outside there. They also have deals for coupons on restaurant.com

After evaluating several reviews on this site for this particular restaurant, I decided to try it for myself. The weather could not have been more perfect last night for such a place. Well, what can I say; it was a great experience! The menu was loaded with tasty selections. And the list of Specials was unusually large. Even though they were out of the special that Ive ordered, an almond crusted Halibut in a Grand Marnier sauce, the herb crusted, grilled Salmon in a Chianti sauce was just as delicious! My husband was also very happy with his pasta selection. The food, drinks, very friendly/ fast service, and the atmosphere were outstanding!! Oh, I forgot to mention the dessert.. Mmmyummy! A decadent chocolate mousse cake was very rich yet so light! The restaurant was very affordable. Also, the outdoor seating was an added bonus!!! Definitely coming back!!!

I have been coming to Panorama for years. It has always been a wonderful experience. The food is delicious and comsopolitians are too good to be true. The waitstaff is friendly and the prices are great. I just introduced some new friends to the resturant over the weekend and they wanted to go here for new years dinner. Its a great date place or grab a group of friends and go for their drinks, because you can't go wrong with any drinks there. As I told my friend last weekend, this is the place you get the drinks you are afraid to get at other bars because of incompetant bartenders.

Do NOT order the crabcakes! They are advertised as Maryland-style crabcakes. This is the furthest from the truth. I'm from Maryland, and if I ever tried to serve a crabcake like this down there, I'd be out of business in less than an hour. The service was great, but the food was kind of bland. I might go back to try something different, but was actually quite disappointed in the overall experience.
