Trimming and removing trees can be dangerous, if not deadly. Learn how to stay safe and when to call a professional.
The location is very good the service not so much. The mega room is the way to go here as it is the size of an average room you would get outside of the city. The staff are nice enough and well meaning but there is no attention to detail so if you are looking for a room close to Time Square and don't need anything from the staff this would be fine. If you are the type of person that likes room service, concierge services or pretty much anything else that the staff would provide this is not the hotel for you. Examples: Check-in ..... This went smoothly except my room was not ready when I checked in, which was fine because I was early. They told me they would call me when the room was ready and since check out is noon I figured it wouldn't be long. Three hours later I was still waiting for my room because they neglected to tell me that the people staying in that room were not checking out until 2:00pm. The manager finally gave me another room at 3:00pm. In addition I was told at check-in that I had a package and it would be delivered to my room. Great, I was expecting the package and was anxious to receive it. Three hours later I had to call and ask for the package. Concierge: Awful! We had to wait to check our bags when we were waiting for our room; we had to wait to get our bags back after we finally did get our room. We went to the concierge for information and the gentleman was on the phone so we patiently waited for at least 10 minutes with no acknowledgement from him. We finally left and did not return. At the end of our stay they had added a charge to our bill for the munchies bar (we did not eat anything from this) We called and no one answered so we left a message and three hours later we still had not received a call back. We finally had to go the front desk to resolve this. We needed a cab so we went to the door man who was hailing cabs for other guests. There was a line and we were the third party in the line. The doorman did not acknowledge us, others came behind us and he asked where they needed to go but still nothing for us. Finally the two parties in front of us left and he still did not acknowledge us but continued to ask the people behind us their destination and even hailed cabs for some of the people behind us. I guess he expected us to give up but we stayed and finally a cab pulled up to drop off a passenger and he waves us over sand said, “you can take this one”. The next night we walked 15 feet beyond the hotel entrance and hailed a cab ourselves and were on our way in less than a minute. For the remainder of our stay we hailed our own cabs and arranged our own drivers. The Acura Experience was the best thing about this hotel. There is only the one vehicle so it is difficult to get a time slot so plan ahead and reserve your time. The gentleman came into the lobby and escorted us out, he treated us like we were royalty (and he was genuine), he was very personably and talked with us while he drove us to our destination, we were even offered bottled water, at our destination he dropped us in the exact right place and was the most professional staff we encountered. A huge thumbs up to the Acura staff. (I have to wonder if they are even employed by the hotel because the service was so out of character from the other staff). Housekeeping: The room was made up nice so no problem there but she did report that we used an item from the munchie bar when we did not. She didn’t give us fresh robes (which were kind of disgusting anyway) and she did not replace our breakfast order card. Again the attention to detail is what this hotel is most lacking in. Checkout – went smoothly Bottom line – I would rate this hotel as average. There was nothing that I would be “up in arms” about but also nothing that exceeded my expectations. If I stay here again I will prearrange my own transportation and will eat else ware.

Fittingly, the decor inside Cloister matches what you would expect to see at a church. The pleasantly sacrilegious ambiance for smoking hookah and drinking fine wine adds to your inebriating experience. Cloister is a term ingrained in the Catholic church, if you're curious regarding it's meaning, check out Wikipedia. I'm here to preach, not to teach. The pride and joy of CC though is the outdoor garden. When the weather is warm and the vineyard has grape leaves draping over slivers of sunlight, you forget that you're still in New York. The ambiance is amazing and the patrons can be very pleasant, even striking up a conversation with your table. The pricing is often ridiculous, and sometimes when our lovely waitress brings us "shots on the house" I swear we've had them show up on our bill. This adds to the charm albeit stings the first two times you see the bill. It's very European how they handle their business, complete with real Russian waitresses! So yea, Catholic stain glass, Mediterranean garden, New American cuisine, Turkish Hookah and Russian staff. It's not ideal, in fact it's all over the place in terms of brand identity. Given that I'm a regular, they treat me a little better than a first timer (My real rating for this spot would be a 4 by the way, but I want to counterbalance the bad ratings) On a wintery night, I came here with a friend, we were both sick and we asked them to make us honey mulled wine, they did it. They charged us whatever they wanted because it's not a standard menu item, but the fact remains, they do care about their regulars. Like many places in NY, you have to know when to come and when to avoid this spot. Some tips if you want to have a good time: - Come during warmer weather and sit in the garden. - Start drinking here, continue at your club/lounge. Not the other way around. - Order a pitcher (or 2) of Sangria rather than drinks for groups smaller than 4 - Order Hookah with a mix, always keep one part leafy (Mint, Jasmine) with one part smooth (Vanilla, Apple, Coffee). - Practice self control when ordering shots. If you follow these steps, you'll have a good time
2 Steps forward, 1 step back. You know how there are certain restaurants that go the extra mile and seem like this business is their lifelong calling? Well, unfortunately this is not the 1. In fact, ironically, those places often go out of business, but I digress. This is not 1 of those places. It has potential. The thin, tall sundress woman who greeted us seemed like she was up for the challenge. The menu is rather thin and my dinner guest said that their steak was only okay and certainly not worth the inflated price. I asked for a taste of avocado with my dish. The big boys typically give this to you as a courtesy or an obligatory $1. Benjamin's whopping $4 took my meal up to the next price bracket. I liked the diversity of the 2 light skinned minority waitresses. When I complimented the Manager on her kimono, she practically lectured me on how it was not. When I asked the waitress for an orange slice, in addition to not having any she got too familiar asking me what I needed it for. What ever happen to the customer is always right, even if my fashion jeopardy was slightly off. I actually wanted to like this place more for the several 2 steps forward, but I would be disingenuous to not warn people of the several 1 steps back. I read both the favorable and unfavorable reviews of the restaurant on this site. I figured I’d pay them the solid of letting them know of the site so one of them could perhaps write a response to any unfavorable reviews that were just miscommunications. The male manager who answered said he would get the female manager that I described only to return as if screening her calls. He was otherwise very polite cordial and professional. When I suggested that someone in his camp might want to write retorts to negative messages posted about the restaurant, he was not interested. Oh well.
Great location and poor service First of all, hotel manager provided me with the room located at the second floor with windows directed to the street, while at least two other rooms with different location were free. This manager was aware that road works had been scheduled at the same night, and he was definitely aware that my room #201, was the closest to the noise. I mean, road works were side by side with my windows, so I have been listening the pick hammers and asphalt-placing machine the half night as I was standing right in front of them. Both hotel managers (the guy who worked until midnight and the next one after him) declined my requests to give me another room saying that although two more rooms were indeed empty, they were reserved, and cleaning service was not available after the business hours. So what was the sense to give me the worst room during my check-in, while other rooms were still available at that time? Next day I had a terrible headache and I've got a cold, because hotel did not started heating and outside night's temperature was about 40 (+4-7 Celsius). The reason why my room was so noisy and so cold - the window near my bed had a removable air conditioner and no curtains at all. So every sound from the street as well as cold air freely getting in. I tried to remove it, and asked hotel manager to remove it - no way. "Free Wi-Fi" in the hotel was also as great as overall service, and died every 30 sec, so I used Cosy's free Wi-Fi to check my e-mails instead.
I have been using Food Merchants (FoodMerchantsCatering.com) for ALL my catering needs in NYC for the past 4+ years. (approx. 6-8 events per year). As Tech Events Manager for a large university, I utilize Food Merchants for EVERY event I do because they are consistently reliable, the food is amazing, and their prices can't be beat. I have in fact taken to NOT using a venue if they don't let me use my own caterers. Once in 2015 and once in 2016 I held events at venues that required using their caterers and it simply reinforced my belief that Food Merchants in simply the best. They have done everything from $2,500 orders to $25,000 orders and everything in between. Once a month we host a hackathon at our university, Food Merchants provides our Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner for these weekend events. Students are amazing to be getting Shrimp Orechiette and Crab Cake Sandwiches, Kale Crunch salad, Quinoa, and more. But their prices are so amazing, it actually costs LESS than the basic options from other caterers. The fruit on the breakfast trays is fresh, the roles are an assortment of grains, many healthy options including vegan and gluten free. Peter is my guy at Food Merchants, and I truly cannot say enough good things, I have NEVER been disappointed. As an event planner, the one thing I know that I never need to worry about is the food. Peter and his crew are amazing. We have also used them for conferences, networking events, and more.
I have been coming here for an eternity, at first mainly for the mojitos, but once they changed their chef, I started coming back for lunch and mojitos. I don't know what magician pours the drinks, but you always leave with a "buzz". The Cloister cafe is the best during the warmer months, so you can enjoy many cocktails, under the grapevines and lush foliage, with hookah and friends. The last time I went, was with a friend, on a rainy day, to celebrate her graduation from Parson's. We were seated "inside-outside" area, which is a tented area, but still not deprived of many trees and plants. We ordered mojitos, a brie quesadellia appetizer, and two salads: the duck and the salmon, I'm not a big salad person, but I like the way they make theirs. Big portions of duck and salmon, well seasoned, fresh and filling. I love their fried potatoes too, with sea salt, time and pepper. To end our meal we ordered a hookah and dessert, and oddly enough it ended up being on a bit over 40$ a person(with out tip), which I think is beyond reasonable for the location, quality of food, and magical cocktails. I would recommend this place 100% for a first date, since they never rush you or take forever to bring your food. I would also recommend this place for sitting alone on a sunny afternoon, with friends at night, or whenever. It's a winner. It got a perfect rating from me, because it deserves it. You get the exact bang for your buck!
I love Malachys! I have been going there for a while now and have got to say that this place is so comfortable that it has become a regular after-work or pre party spot. The bartenders are awesome. The drinks are cheap. The clientele is friendly. Buy-backs happen. What's not to love? Well... If you are looking for a club or lounge or some other hoity-toity establishment where drinks cost 14 bucks, then don't go. I can't make this clearer: This is an Irish Pub! An old one at that. And that's what makes it feel like you just stopped by your friends place for a drink after work. Bring friends and get your drink on. Here's what you NEED to know. The drinks are great! The food is great (get the burger, chicken fingers, mac-n-cheese, or ribs are favorites)! When there is an event at the park or later on the weekends, the place gets packed. Now for my Favorite part: Dorian!!! She's the bartender on the weekends and is amazing! Besides making one of the best darn Irish Coffees this side of the pond, she is hilarious and should have a column in some major publication. You can never get tired of her welcoming smile and the "How you doing sweetheart?" Go early, Stay a long time! Welcome to Malachy's!!!
*This review is for my first hookah experience in NYC only, not for the restaurant portion of this place.Oh hookah, how I missed you so! I haven't been to a hookah lounge in so long, but am glad to have found Cloister Cafe! Actually, my friend & I were looking for this sake place when we stumbled upon this place. Decided to check it out since it was actually affordable ($20 per pipe plus one drink minimum per person). The Ukrainian bouncer wasn't all that intimidating, I've seen worse, but I did notice he didn't allow guys in easily (he told a random guy to call out his friend to meet him at the entrance instead). My friend and I, on the other hand, walked in just fine. The ambiance of this place is awesome; the outdoor garden is covered by trees and grapevines above you, and the music is loud enough to enjoy but still able to hear the other person across the table. Luckily the weather was perfect, it would've sucked if it rained. We got the rose & mint hookah (delicious!) and each got an iced tea (lemon was included, without us asking.. even better!) We must've spent about three hours here, and the server never pressured us to leave. I'm definitely coming back here!
