Delicious Sunday Brunch – We were seated by the host and the waitress took our order right away, but we ended up waiting over 25 minutes for our food. Other people that came in after us were finishing their food by the time we got ours. How ever they told me that the ticket fell off the wheel that they hang the orders on. When we got our food it was great, the staff was friendly and apologized for what had happened. They gave me 10% off my bill and a $10.00 gift card. I will go back again.
Delicious Sunday breakfast – Just had breakfast there this morning with several family members. We all had delicious meals. I had the poached egg special and it was a feast. My Aunt had the pancakes and she said they were some of the best she had ever had (and she orders pancakes often). All other members of our party had great meals too. I would definitely go back for another visit!
VERY disappointed in this place – Went there for the first time today after a friend suggested--It was nicely decorated and cozy. Got seated by the host and waited for over 15 min for the waitress to even come over to us. We were seated near the tiny bar area and their phone was ringing incessantly right next to us on the highest volume possible--that's when I started to get annoyed. Then the food came out--blueberry pancakes and they were basically mush--wayyyy too many blueberries so they just fell apart. While we were waiting for the check, a family came in and the kids were crying and screaming--the hostess was rolling her eyes and said something like why did these people come? which was totally inappropriate on her part NEVER talk about the customers to other customers. We got the bill and they knew the service was so bad they gave us a $20.00 gift certificate. We gave it to people we knew bc there is NO way we're going back.
QUAINT PLACE – I am someone who goes out to eat alot ,so much !!! I am talking everynight I am very picky about the restaraunts I eat in I stopped at the Londonderry for lunch a few weeks ago and it was so good, So when they came out with a dinner coupon I figured I would go back because I liked my lunch so much, I would go there for dinner It was wonderful! I have went to the londonderry a few times now since the coupon and i really enjoy this place It is so quiet and a nice dinner is served to you and what I like most is that everything is made from scracth
Cozy Little Place – I recently had dinner at the Cafe and it was delightful The staff was wonderful and the food was very tasty The Cafe itself is very cozy The owner is a sweet girl and strives to please all of her guests All of the deserts are fresh made from scratch as the food itself is I recommend if you haven't been to the Londonderry Cafe you should give it a try
A true DISSAPOINTMENT – This restaurant ranks low on a scale of 1-10 and I honestly don't even know how they are still located in the high-end shopping center that prides itself on the best of the best.
The food, service, and fruit flies all what you don't want in a dining experience. My order took almost an hour to come out while I could clearly hear the waitstaff cursing at the cooks. The owner, who made an effort to apologize for my miserable experience, seemed intoxicated and needs to improve her people skills. Overall, I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy. A nightmare.
Depends on the day – have been to many times for many years. highly recomend the burgers they have fun toppings. But food can be poor and service can be poor, depends on the day.
Eat like a governor at this eclectic Stuyvesant Plaza bistro.
– The Scene
Londonderry's fancy storefront stands out even in restaurant-heavy Stuyvesant Plaza. A hunter-green sign beckons diners inside the pleasant maroon, pink and green dining room, where quiet conversation and reliable service prevail. After all, what do you expect from chef-owner, Ron Furan? He cooked for New York's governors for 10 years.
To start, Furan's raspberry coulis adds a wonderful sweetness to the warm Brie appetizer. Organic salad greens are tossed with house-made dressings. Pasta and steak entrees are reliable, and the excellent beef selections change nightly. The New Yorker pasta (roasted garlic and sun-dried tomato pasta in a creamy garlic sauce with prosciutto) will please even finicky taste buds. The gingernut salmon is a masterpiece of flaky fish crusted with hazelnut crumbs and topped with orange beurre blanc. The chicken jambalaya is good, but mild. Like it spicy? Just ask.
