    First off the, Maître d informed us the reservation I made on Open Table was not valid because he canceled Open Table over a year ago. Then he went on to complain about Open Table being a rip-off. Fortunately, there was a table (maybe). It took over 45 min to order and 2 of their house specialties were not available. When the food finally arrived well over an hour after we were seated, my food was inedible (the sauerbraten, dry and tasteless) but my wife said her salmon was very good. They never came back to refill our water, maybe because we asked for tap water rather than the bottle water they "highly" recommended. There is more but you get the idea. Just go somewhere else.

    A fun time. Food and service are Great. Went on a Saturday night. At least two big birthday parties. D.J. and dancing started around 8. Not sure if a typical Saturday, but if looking for a fun party and great food, check out Cafe Prague.

    We loved Cafe Prague. The salads and the gouloush were outstanding. I also had a latte and it was one of the best I have had in a long time. We will be back soon.

    Brought my girlfriend here to celebrate her birthday. She was born and lived much of her life in Czechoslovakia. She loved the place and the food. Said it was totally authentic and very good. Staff was friendly and attentive. Made it a great birthday evening out. Will definitely be returning!

    Food was amazing, original authentic Czech cooking. We tried pork, duck, sauerkraut, both potato and regular dumplings, beef tartare, everything was delicious. Pilsner Urquell on tap, served in real Pilsner mugs with perfect amount of foam. I expected fancier surroundings, it is down-to-earth, just like the Bohemians like it. Even though it is only 10 miles from downtown, it took almost an hour to get here from the John Hancock Building! I just admit that it was well worth it. 5 stars!

    First time visit for us. Wanted some delicious European food, and Cafe Prague delivered! Duck dumpling appetizer is recommended as wells the tripe soup. I had the PERFECT duck and my wife had, as she said, some of the best steak and vegetables ever! Desert was tremendous! Nice little comfortable restaurant in a nice little comfortable neighborhood. Perfect!

    I brought my cousin and her husband here, who were visiting from Albuquerque. We all had a wonderful experience, delicious food like our grandmother used to make! Impeccable service from a young girl who had come to the U.S. fleeing the war in Ukraine. The only issue was the intolerable loud volume of the dance floor music that started about halfway through dinner. We wanted to have dessert and coffee but were forced to leave early. Won't be going back on a Saturday night, but otherwise would love to try again.

    Our first time in Cafe Prague and definitely not a last one. We are Czech and have to say food tasted as we remember back. I had ( besides other dishes) Tatar biftek, I didn’t have for so long and it was delicious. Every dish was just perfect. Our server Magdalena, was very pleasant. We will be back, Thank you so much

    Something changed. It's lost a little of the charm. I recall a greater selection and larger portions. I wish they had brought out the side salad with the other appetizers the three other people ordered at our table. It wasn't crowded on a Friday night.

    We wanted to try a different ethnic restaurant, and Cafe Prague didn't disappoint. I was delighted that our waitress said she could bring me both dumplings and potato pancakes when I couldn't make up my mind. Both were delicious! And--my friend loved his dinner, too. We took home leftovers--and we'll be back. This is a great local restaurant!

    My wife and I loved it! I was craving traditional Czech food in this cold weather. Cafe Prague didn’t disappoint. Bramborak, Svickova, Goulash….just like my grandma used to make. Our waitress was very nice and I was happy to be able to speak my native language. Lovely ambiance for a date night as well. Can’t wait to come back!

    Both my friend and I loved the food and we ordered different entrees. We did split some of the sides. She loved the alcoholic beverage. I wasn't that impressed. The service was excellent, always present when you needed something without being obtrusive. The ambience wasn't the best for a conversation.

    None of the staff were wearing masks. The entire restaurant was supposedly reserved for private parties so they tried to shove us at a tiny table right by the kitchen exit. We were disgusted so we left.
