HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS PLACE?!? After years of traveling to NYC(from Westchester) to relax and listen to live jazz, I have finally found the Watercolor Cafe and it's like hitting the jackpot. By chance, after shopping, we stopped to

We attended an opening act??s performance at this restaurant recently. We invited a number of guests who came only to see the opening act but understandably paid the $20 cover for the main act who none of us were familiar with. The food and drinks were average but extremely overpriced, even for Larchmont. The service was slow and often ignored the guests. Our group bought multiple drinks for the performer which we later found out the owner charged the performer for. After the opening act ended and we??d finished our meal, we moved over to the bar where we were continually ??shushed? until we left the restaurant. Apparently this is a silent bar/restaurant. The owner, Bruce Carroll, had agreed on a price with the performer but then did not pay. When the performer contacted Bruce for payment the next day, she was told that ??payment was agreed to under the assumption that she would bring in business.? We brought 8 guests with us ?? the main act brought 4. The owner also told the performer he expected more gratitude for giving her the opportunity to play. In a business relationship, ??expressed gratitude? should have no bearing on an agreed upon payment being made for a service provided. The owner eventually agreed to pay but said he??d deduct the cost of the drinks that were given to the musician, despite the fact that these drinks were purchased by customers for the musician. The owner did state that the performer ??sounded great? and ??did a great job? ?? I??d hate to see how he treats a mediocre act! This is second-rate management and shows a serious lack of business acumen. Don??t support a business like this.

Cockroach crawling on the wall on the side of our table. Waiter came by and grabbed it in a napkin. No apologies. We left and will not return.

I haven't been to the watercolor cafe in a while, but I remember the live music being fun to listen to over dinner, and the salads being decent. I don't remember the service though

My husband and I went to see Dan Bern at the Watercolor Cafe on 9/17/06. We paid $35 each for the tickets (the show was great and well worth the money). My complaint is about the food and the service. There was a $25 minimum per head to sit at a table. To start, we ordered calamari, which was mediocre (it was a little rubbery, and the sauce was not great) Also, for $9.95, the portion was small. We ordered our food at 4:15 (the show was starting at 5:00). The calamari came within minutes (and was gone within minutes because there wasn't much of it!!) Then, we waited over AN HOUR for our main courses. My husband ordered veal marsala (23.95). I thought it was OK... he wasn't crazy about it. Again, the portion was small.
I ordered filet mignon and shrimp ($27.00). I ordered the filet to be served medium, but it came dry and absolutely CHARRED. The 3 SMALL shrimp hadn't been cleaned or deveined (ick). We ended up spending $100 (not including tip or concert tix which brought it to almost $200) on a completely forgetable dinner. Worst of all, we LEFT HUNGRY. One good thing I can say about this place is that they are a venue for GREAT music. But, they hijack their customers that are there for the music into paying (often more than the regular menu prices) just to sit at a table during the show. I would NEVER go back there to eat. There are so many excellent eateries in that area... I would go back for the music though.

Pros: GREAT MUSIC

Cons: RIDICULOUSLY SMALL PORTIONS FOR JACKED UP PRICES

We went to the Watercolor Cafe for my husband's birthday. Although we had been there before, this was our first time dining here. The experience left much to be desired. The service was lacking and when a waiter got gravy on my shirt, he was troubled by my request for a napkin and glass of water to clean it up. We were rushed by the manager to sign for the 50.00 music charge before they even took a drink order. I chose the steak, medium rare, after being assured that they used only the best meats. My steak was not only overcooked but not a tender piece of meat either.
We were overcharged on our bill for an additional music charge for sitting at the bar; my husband requested that the bill be voided and reentered, which seemed to annoy the server and manager.
Well at least the music was good. I dont think well be returning.
