Fairway Cafe- great dinner

Went last night, have not been there in a while. The rosemary bread with oil was great. Tomatoes and mozzerella fabulous, great tomatoes, wonderful cheese, and a very nice balsamic dressing. The salmon was amazing clean tasting and cooked perfectly. Pie was good, son's burger was great, fries a little mushy. Had a $5 glass of wine! Very good also! The salmon was 28 on the prix fix! Incredible value for the quality!

    I must say that I am not a fan of Fairway Cafe. I have found the food mediocre and the service terrible. I hope they have changed out those metal chairs -- so uncomfortable!

      I like Fairway Cafe though I do avoid it during peak hours since service can be forgetful. The salads, burgers, brunch items, and desserts are quite good and the prix fixe is a great deal.

        Granted that it's been a few years since I've been, I think for the price, the quality of the dishes is in line or even exceeds in some instances. I won't expect Danny Meyer-style service given the price, but it is courteous and decent enough (albeit sometime comical).
