We checked out Cafoterra today and left immediately after walking in. Was jammed. Baruch Hashem for them.
I went monday morning. They clearly have some growing pains, but I think they will do well.
Was there around 10am, very empty, which is pretty normal for a weekday.
They had a soft launch menu, but not everything was available even on that.
What I ordered was delicious and came fairly fast, was presented very well.
I'll reserve judgment until they have a chance to officially open, but I was impressed overall.

I had a similar experience Thursday. I did think the food was exceptional though.

Interesting, I thought that area was dead.
There’s sushi by aisle 9 and authentic Chinese
Wondering what their plan is

Walked into Caffoteria today, looks very nice, and it's basically waiter service without tipping, except for the initial order. They come and refill your water etc. Prices justify that though imo

He barely ate. The only way one can give reviews is by trying at least 5 dishes on the menu.
