Best

my son, already is missing the great ice cream you guys make. Hope to have a store in Greenwich ct..

Worst

I think this is just another one of those over rated place that is actually just average. well... if you consider $5 for 2flavors of gelato, it's actually below average. sorbet...

Well worth it! 3/30/2010

I am originally from Argentina so I am familiar with good tasting ice cream. As some have mentioned, due to the Italian influence in Argentina, the gelato they make in the country is delicious. Obviously there are good places as well as bad places but when you find a good one, you can quickly tell by the deep flavor and texture of the ice cream/gelato. Pros: Terrific flavor and texture Cons: Small place more

Does not live up to the hype at all 1/14/2010

After reading the previous reviews on it, i HAD to go try it out for myself. I love ice cream and all things sweet. From the way that people were raving about it and having won the Best of Citysearch, I had high expectations. And so, I trekked my way to this marvelous gelato haven. Seriously disappointed. I got the pistachio and it was overly sweet. I had samples of other flavors but I did not care for them either. I felt a bit obligated to buy one since the guy was staring me down. Who said that they were generous with the tastings? It is 2 per person. Not to mention, my friend got the hazelnut, but let me ask why there were hints of banana in it? They didn't bother rinsing the scoop. Anyhow, go if you must try it out. But honestly, pocket $5 and head down the street for the Italian bakery across the street. Any Italian pastry you can think of, they have. Seriously, the WORST. GELATO. EVER. Pros: Good location I guess? Cons: Expensive more

Can't miss it! 11/16/2009

I don't know where this brazilian reviewer that wrote a previous review came from, but in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where I grew up, the corn Ice cream is a big hit. We even have Corn Ice cream bars being manufactured by food giants such as Unilever. And trust me when I say this, the Cones Corn Ice cream is the best I have ever tasted. Every time my husband and I are walking around Bleeker we get a pint of it to bring home. About the service, New York is the perfect place to trash someones service. It is just too easy. People get mistreated everywhere...but Cones is not that type of place! The owners are always around and are very pleasant. Here is the deal, go and see for yourself. It's worth it. more

The Only Place I Can Go for Tiramisu Gelato 4/18/2009

I visited Cones a while back and to this day, no one makes Tiramisu Gelato like they do. I crave it but I am on the other side of the state! I will always visit Cones when in NYC! Pros: Gelato is to die for Cons: It's over 450 miles away! more

Truly The Best (Big Fan) 5/25/2008

The last two posts are frauds and are actually in violation of the user agreement of citysearch com. There the same person. But anyway I?m not here to talk about them. I have been at Cones several times per year since they opened up and it has been an absolute delightful experience each and every time. There is no way in hell there customer service would act like that. It clearly seems like there competition is trying to discredit them. I would to if I had to compete with them. Well, thank god I?m not competing with them because they truly do have a superior product. They should mass market it. Pros: Thumbs up Cons: None what so ever more

service makes you loose your appetite 5/4/2008

It doesn't matter if the ice cream is good or not. You are treated so terribly that you don't feel like giving your money to these guys. I asked if I could try the ice cream. He rudely said yes, but only two. I chose the first but I took exactly 5 seconds to chose the second one. He said, ""You took to long, I choose for you"" And gave me corn flavor, something I would never ask myself! I obviously got irritated and just left. SO if you want to save yourself stress, don't go to cones!!! there are many other ice cream places around bleecker. IN addition, they sold the corn flavor as""Brazil's favorite"". I am from brazil and can insure you that corn ice cream isn't popular at all and this is just cheap merchandising! more

RUDE SERVICE 5/4/2008

When I went to Cones, the service was terrible. It is the kind of service that can put you in a bad mood. The man who was attending told me I could only taste two ice creams. Fine. I asked for a chocolate and...And I sneezed. So he gave me pistachio and chocolate. I said I didn't want to taste the pistachio. His answer was ""You sneezed, so I chose for you."" Anyway, I thought he was joking, how can somebody be so sarcastic and cynic? So I asked if I could taste the passion fruit. He said NO-because I had already tasted two ice creams. When I said he chose the second for me, he replied very rudely that I had sneezed, so I lost my chance. I really don't understand how can somebody be so rude and careless to a client. I just left and chose from the 5 other ice cream shops on the block-all equally good. more

Amazing ice cream! 4/22/2007

I was a little skeptical when I saw the price of a small cone...but let me tell you, it was well worth it! The ice cream is the best I have ever had! I have had several flavors and they are all amazing! Worth the wait!!! Pros: Amazing ice cream! Cons: A little expensive for ice cream more

Dark Chocolate or dulce leche 8/7/2006

Not great for a group and the serving portions are small but worth the 3 bucks for a small. There is also no seating in the store so its best if you just grab and go. more

Only If You Want the Taste of Sugar! 8/3/2006

My best friend and I tried four different flavors at Cones the other night. Everything tasted the same, just like sugar. What a waste of time and money! I had heard that the owners of Cones, the DAloisio brothers, brought the technique of ""made-from-scratch"" ice cream and sorbets from their native Buenos Aires. I had also heard that they trained with a master gelato maker in Buenos Aires for four months, before bringing their product to New York. I've been to Argentina on many occasions and they certainly know their ice cream and gelato down there. In Argentina, where the population is largely Italian, the taste for ice cream is similar to that from Italy. Therefore, people in Buenos Aires take their ice cream very seriously. Argentinean ice cream is some of the best in the world! These Argentinos need to return home for more lessons on how to make this product properly. I probably will never return to Cones, unless I'm just passing by and decide to try a FREE SAMPLE of their ""zabaglione / sambayon"" flavor. I've heard it's good. But, then again, I heard Cones has great ice cream. I guess those people Only Want the Taste of Sugar! Pros: Better than having a liquor store in the same location! Cons: Rushed, impersonal service, expensive more

AMAZING gelato!!! 7/16/2006

So I walked in here as I was going down Bleecker with a friend, and I wasn't going to order anything but my friend wanted gelato... but since we were in, I figured I'd try some anyway, since gelato is one of my favorite things EVER. So I tried the tiramisu and I swear, I almost cried. It was absolutely AMAZING and had truly captured every essence of good old-fashioned tiramisu. And then I tried the hazlenut which was totally great too. So then I ended up getting both because they were just obscenely wonderful. DEFINITELY worth going to!!! Pros: Ridiculously good gelato more

the best 7/1/2006

for selection, and quality cones is the best, plus the location is great, only three blocks from my house, I love the sorbets dairy free, and they carry like a dozen. Pros: great selection, location. more

Great gelato 6/24/2006

This place gets pretty busy on summer nights and for good reason. Their gelato is creamy and tasty.. although a bit more expensive than your typical ben and jerrys. However, service could be given with a smile by the older gentleman. Try it if you like icecream! The tiramasu and almond icecream are great. Pros: unique flavors Cons: pricey more

Great Gelato & even better sorbets! 1/16/2006

You won't remember that a Sorbet has no milk or fat of any kind when you have a taste of any flavor of sorbet at Cones. They use real fruit, not condensed juices- the rasberry is particularly yummy. The Gelato is dense and tasty too. It is pricey, but remember that gelato has almost no air, while ice cream is loaded with it, so you are actually getting more taste per scoop than you would with ice cream. Just a small scoop is very filling. Pros: Fresh, Tasty more

Really nothing special 8/27/2005

Ice cream is ok, but not really that great. Also a relatively small selection of flavors. Not sure what all the hype is about. more
