Unbelievably bad service.
My husband and I went to Makor to see a music show and have dinner. Repeated attempts to place our order with the waitress failed as she said she was "too busy". As we waited, we watched the waitress act extremely rude to the other customers. Granted she was the only one to serve all tables, but that only shows the poor management of the cafe.
To add insult to injury, we waited for change from $40 cash we left on a $22 check that never came. When we asked the waitress about it, she first claimed that we never paid and then claimed that she had no record of change being owed to us. We asked to speak to the manager and were told there was none on site. We asked for the phone number of the manager but when we tried to call, the phone number given to us was not for the manager at all but for a random person unassociated with the cafe.
I would warn everyone against going there.
Cool Place. Although it's located in a very dead neighborhood, Makor is pretty cool place to hang out at. I went there to see Dub is a Weapon. There were a few couples, and many down to earth, apparently single girls. The bartender (the one with the beard) was really friendly. It's a dim place, the bar looks classy, and thank god the people there don't seem yuppyish !
This savvy, visionary cultural center joins Jewish spirituality and the arts in a way many New Yorkers have long craved..
The Upper West Side brownstone houses two reading rooms plus an outdoor patio on the first floor, with a plush 72-seat screening room and an art gallery upstairs. Below ground is the low-lit bar, nightclub and Mediterranean cafe, decorated with stone tiles and a curtained stage area.
Since its 1999 opening, Makor--which became part of the 92nd Street Y in February 2001-- has attracted a youthful community that runs the gamut of religious (and non-religious) identities. Along with Sabbath dinners, funk-driven music nights, DJ parties and jazz brunches, any given week may also feature classes in yoga, creative writing, drumming and Kabbalah.
