Daily Lunch at the Club

The Faculty Club invites Columbia University and NewYork-Presbyterian staff, employees, students, and their guests to enjoy lunch in our elegant, centrally located dining room. Each weekday on the fourth floor of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, we offer a buffet lunch of freshly prepared antipasti, salads, soup, side dishes, pasta, and entrées of fish, meat, and vegetables, all made of high-quality ingredients. We also offer à la carte desserts and full bar service.

The Faculty Club is the perfect spot to meet friends and colleagues for lunch. It's also ideal if you need to fit a healthy meal into a busy day. View today’s menu and reserve a table online.

Our dining room periodically closes during parts of July and August. Our reservation system will indicate any changes in availability.
