My visits to Community Restaurant (Morningside Hts. aka Harlem) has been nothing but wonderful. The food always comes to you hot. I like the varied menu choices. I've only been there four times and each time I selected something different. The food was always satisfying and enough. Go for breakfast, brunch or dinner. I haven't been for lunch yet, but I am sure it's just as satisfying. The coffee is very good too. The staff is always polite and helpful. Community Restaurant is easily becoming one of my favorite restaurants.

unrealized potential

this place looks like a great restaurant - lovely, thoughtful, modern interior design, organically-focused menu - but the food just can't compare with its own beautiful decor, or with the cuisine of restaurants further downtown. the drinks were disappointing, and flavors of both cocktails and food were generally off, ending up either too intense or imbalanced. with prices comparable to venues that manage to look good AND deliver on taste, community really needs to step up (and uptown desperately needs betters restos, so i'm rooting for you).

Community seats its guests at, well, communal tables. Long tables fill the center of the main dining room where the acoustics verge on loud. We found ourselves talking in more than hushed voices to be heard over the laughter and good stories told at nearby tables. In fact, we found ourselves entering the conversations at the tables on either side of us -- eyeing and commenting on the butterscotch pudding topped with whipped cream two women shared, overhearing a discussion between a brother and sister of last year's production of Euripides off-Broadway and ogling the very attractive shrimp pot stickers and perfectly browned zucchini scallion pancakes .

I went here for brunch over the weekend, and it was great! Good options for vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores. I can't wait to go back for dinner.

yes the wait for brunch can be annoying and i dislike that they don't take reservations but it's def worth the wait and very very delish! go for brunch early or when not in a hurry and enjoy! lunch and dinner are good too, but brunch is the best! all of the food is spectacular and the ambiance is great....

a faux wanna be jump on the green bandwagon type of place.

They pretend to use organic and local ingredients, which they don't.. The staff is rude. There are one or two nice waiters, but the host at the front is always not nice. The food is too expensive. Breakfast can easily cost $20 per person. The decor is like a Barnes & Noble or Starbucks. The chairs are uncomfortable. It is unfortunate. The Columbia area could really use an honest and affordable organic restaurant. Not a faux wanna be jump on the green bandwagon type of place. overall, its a scam.

Worth the wait!

Every time my boyfriend and I pass Community on our way home it's packed! We finally sucked it up and waited outside one Sunday near the space heater until we were called. And it was definitely worth the wait. We both had the grass-fed burgers which were cooked to perfection. We also indulged ourselves with Hot Ciders. I am planning on having a b-day brunch there. Try it!

I love this place i really do. Other than the fact that it always has a line (wee snack before hand is advised if you're really hungry) and the bartender is touch and go with the drinks everything else is STELLAR! The bowls are fab! such great value for all the yummy food. just writing this makes me want to go right now. I hope more great places like this start coming up here.

Too much hype - No Substance - Huge Attitude - Awful Service

The food is good but only worth the trip if you're already in the neighborhood. draft beers at $6.75 are overpriced... Service is below expectations and comes with a lot of attitude both from the hosts/hostesses and the waiters/waitresses. Not sure what they are all snooty about. This is Morningside Heights - catering to a bunch of college students and upper upper west side folks.
