Nothing else in New York quite matches the atmosphere of La Caverna. Cavern isn’t just part of the name – it is the décor as well! You’ll get the instant impression that you are deep in a cave far below the earth’s crust, but with none of the dankness you might find in a real cave. The menu is relatively short but sufficient for a bar atmosphere.

If you’re putting together a party and looking for somewhere unique, La Caverna should be at the top of your list. With wings, croquettes, salads, lamb sliders, calamari, mac n’ cheese, grilled chicken, grilled cheese and a burger, there are plenty of munchie items to keep the party going. The cocktail list has something for everyone to make the night fun at La Caverna.

I went with a few friends to celebrate my birthday, and it was better than I expected! We went at like 7:50ish, so it was pretty empty inside. But people started coming in at like 9 or 10pm. The food was really good, and worth the reasonable price. Definitely recommend the tacos, they were delicious! I also love the drinks. I had a Lychee Martini, which was strong but not that bad. I loved that they actually put a lychee in the drink. The other drink that I recommend is the Altomira. I wish I ordered another. Would definitely come back again.

I love La Caverna! The perfect place to meet a large group of friends for drinks and dinner. One of the most affordable places in the city too! The place doesn’t get very busy or loud until 10pm so it is a great experience. The food and the drinks have only gotten better here.

If your concern is how the set up is in regards to social distancing (as mine were) they did a good job of it... Food and drinks are always good and prices are very reasonable.
