Best

I've made it a winter tradition to sit near the window, order the meatloaf, a glass of white wine, and read. Its an adorable spot. Pros: cozy, great meatloaf

Worst

A formerly good to great restaurant is on the skids and may have already past the point of no return. Look at the date of my and the next review. Something has happened and I do...

Wonderful Food, Good Service 9/1/2007

I am somewhat of a regular. I really enjoy the food there. Favorites are the Linguini special with shrimp and scallops and the marinated skirt steak. Service is good on the weekends. Love the comfortable cozy atmosphere. Pros: good service good food more

What a Shame! 8/6/2007

A formerly good to great restaurant is on the skids and may have already past the point of no return. Look at the date of my and the next review. Something has happened and I don't think there is any hope. Our waiter was so clueless that I was convinced that he had never been to a restaurant in his life. We were the first for dinner and none of the tables were cleaned or set. He sat us but cleaned our table LAST. I GOOD waiter would have cleaned our table first and asked did we want something to drink. We ordered a wine which, 10 minutes later, were told they no longer had. (Then take it off the chalk board, duh.) The meal was only OK. My chowder was not hot and, in fact, was forming a skin when it arrived. The key lime pie was served without whipped cream or any garnish and the crust was soggy. Fortunately, we were still in a good mood and were laughing at the absurdity of it all. In short, my LAST TRIP EVER to the New Prospect Cafe. RIP. Pros: None that I can think of Cons: Below-average food, horrible service, rundown interior, broken toilet. etc. more

terrible service, blah food 6/20/2007

the service was so bad it was absurd. the waiter brought out our wine half way through the meal - and after we asked for it several times! the food was just so...blah... my pear and watercress salad was a joke. regular lettuce with four small slices of pear on top. no watercress. the other food was just totally uninteresting - you could make it at home if you had five minutes. the waiter's cluelessness was the most insane though - one of our dining partners said "i'll have the tempe" to which he responded 'so you want the meat loaf?' like, how do you make that jump??? whatever. don't go there. go to Franny's a few blocks down MUCH BETTER. more

Comfort cooking in a neighborhood spot 1/14/2007

This is a perfect neighborhood spot with good food and friendly service. It's not a five-star restaurant by any means, but if you're in the mood for good food at a valuable price, and you're in the neighborhood, New Prospect Cafe is a great place to go. We?ve eaten there many times, for brunch and dinner, and every time we?re had a pleasant experience. Their food is fresh (crab cakes are sensational) and you can get an eclectic mix, anything from a rib-eye steak to linguini to an enchilada, plus the atmosphere is homey and quaint. more

Terrible Service, Terrible Food, Long Wait, Incompetent Waiter..... 1/11/2007

My date and I had to wait fifteen minutes to be seated yet the place was half empty. We waited another fifteen minutes for the waiter to take our order. Right after we ordered an insect ran across the table. It's took forty five minutes for us to recieve our food. We tried to wait it out hoping the food would make up for the terrible service. Boy was we wrong! My date ordered a chicken sandwich and found it dry, tasteless and all around disgusting. I ordered the brook trout meal and could hardly take a second bite. I've had a better experience eating in McDonald's! As expensive as the meals are we were ripped off! I wouldn't even recommend this place to my worse enemy. Pros: Nada Cons: Terrible Service, Disgusting Food,Overpriced, Should call an exterminator more

Wonderful Food, Wonderful Service 9/19/2006

I have ordered from New Prospect many times and it is excellent. The food is wonderful from the catfish to the meatloaf to the little buns they send with your order. They are always polite and helpful and deliver fast. It's a little more expensive than average but well worth it. I've never had an off night when ordering there. I can't recommend the catfish enough! I not eaten at the restaurant yet, I went in once to pick up another menu and the decor left a lot to be desired (especially when compared to the quality of the food). But having enjoyed the food so much I'd like to eat in, if only to see what the presentation would be like. Pros: Delicious and fast delivery Cons: Interior of restaurant not as nice as you'd hope more

Bad Service, Worse food 4/10/2006

After asking the server explicitly if a soup had sour cream or cheese in it and getting is reassurances that it had neither, I ordered the soup. It came with cheese on top. When I asked him if what i saw was infact cheese, he said "No. It's cream cheese." Hmmm...isn't that CHEESE??? The food took forever to arrive and did not taste good at all. All the tables around us got bread as they waited for their food. We did not. I had to ask for the check 3 times. This place is not worth it. Try the Spanish restaurant down the street on Park and Flatbush. It's not fancy and does not pretend to be, but you get great food at great prices. The New Prospect Cafe pretends to be fancy and the prices indicate fancy, but the food is mediocre at best and the service is terrible. Cons: Bad food, Bad service more
