220 W 31st St, New York, NY 10001, USA


Went there Sunday before show at MSG. The OWNER was nasty and arrogant. Charged us twice for appetizer we had to beg for and when we finally got our dinner one of the meals was raw!!! They took it back and re cooked it instead of giving us a new one. Definitely could not handle a crowd and no bedside manner. If you want to be in the food service business you have to have a pleasant personality !! Not have your waiters apologize for you!!!

This has been our go-to spot to enjoy great food and drinks before any show or sporting event at MSG. Steps away from the Garden, and always playing the music of the evenings event across the street, Fausto and this crew know how to make you feel welcome

A couple of friends and I stumbled upon this place leaving an event at Penn Station. We were so pleasantly surprised by the staff! The owner Dean and Matt were so sweet and generous. Service is everything to me and they NAILED IT! We got lucky with timing because a game was going on at MSG and could score a seat but I can tell before and after games it might be super packed. They have a full menu and serve late. Plus all the sports are on the TVs. We will be back and thanks for making a great night for us!

Had burgers from here, they were very good, with top quality meat. We will be back when we attend another event at MSG.

Food is amazing, price for nyc is reasonable and the owner Dean was very hospitable. It’s rare to see an owner who commits all his time at the restaurant from making drinks, to bringing out your food and mingling with his guests making everyone feel welcome. Anyone who comes through penn station should check this place out. Thank you Dean for a very pleasant experience! Will be back again!. Excellent service

Can't say enough about owners and staff. Always classy and on top of everything. Never know who will see here on Rangers and Knicks nights,or before PBR events. A must visit.

Usually my hangout prior to a Ranger game so I am familiar with the fare served. This time we were joined by three others prior to heading across the street to see ELO. Paul greeted us at the door and sat us. Our waiter was spot on and at the ready. Appetizers were served as we had a second round of cocktails. Then the salad, and then the meal.Of the 5 folks,the meals were wings, a burger, chicken farm, veal parm with pasta, and a cuban. Each was a large portion. Paul stopped by to make sure we were happy to which we were.

Great place to stop by when going to MSG. Food is good (Mozzarella sticks are the best so far) and staff is friendly.

Cafe 31 is excellent. My husband & I were stuck in so much traffic getting into the city. We only had 1 1/2 hours before the Bocelli Concert. We decided to Check our Cafe 31 since it was right across the street from Madison Square Garden. From the minute we entered the restaurant until we left, everything was excellent. My only complaint was the bread. We get the best bread from Brooklyn & Staten Island. The food & drinks were delicious. The waiters & staff were very friendly & accommodating. They went above & beyond. Very inexpensive & excellent fast service. I enjoyed the Bocelli music in the restaurant. It added a special touch to the Pre Concert Dining experience. I would definitely come back & I highly recommend Cafe 31.

Food was good, I had a burger it is the best I have had in NYC and this was my 5th visit, husband had the buffalo chicken frittata. Both meals very enjoyable had soup as an appetiser, two beers and two wines reasonable at $65. Service was fast too.

Excellent food! Good service. Would recommend the penne a la orange vodka. The garlic bread was super toasty and had real garlic.
