We really enjoyed this restaurant however, don't make reservations on a Sunday. My husband scheduled our 10th anniversary weekend get a way over a month in advance. Friday night before we were scheduled to arrive (less than 48 hours notice) the restaurant called to cancel our reservation. When asked why..the girl said "I'm not really sure. I was just told...

My first visit here while on vacation on the Island post-Christmas. The restaurant is fabulously decorated and the menu is inventive; what you would expect from Robert Irvine. We ordered from the tapas menu and every single item was wonderful. There were other items we didn't order but could have, they were that enticing. Decent wine list not overly priced.... More

After dinner I really wanted to go all Pete Wells on this place. I will spare the verbiage. This place really should have had better food. The menu wasn't extensive but the opportunities to showcase some skill were missed. We did a 10 item tasting and it was 'meh'. Probably the result of success. 4 restaurants and a TV career.... More

We shared a bunch of tapas. If we'd gone for happy hour when they were half off it would have been ok, but we didn't. The food was average at best and had very little flavor. The service was ok; it definitely wasn't up to what I would expect for such a restaurant. For instance, I don't expect to have... More

Visited this restaurant on Dec 7th and ordered the braised short ribs with brussels sprouts. I detested brussels sprouts as a child and wouldn't eat them as an adult. However, since I wanted the short ribs I decided it was time to get my big girl panties on and get over it. Glad I did because they were absolutely delicious.... More

Although food was good, the service was awful. Went on Tapas Tuesday, the waiter forgot some of our orders and one guest didn't get what he ordered at all. Management lacked compassion and offered a free dessert. Why would we want dessert when we didn't get our meal?

Have eaten at EAT! on 2 occasions. Both times, while it was good, it was not great, or above-average. The service was slow…in fact, the second time we ate here, we ordered a nice bottle of wine with our dinner. Our food arrived and we had to wait nearly 10 minutes for the wine to be delivered. The food was... More

This is still an ok restaurant, but with so many excellent choices in HH, it falls short. The coconut shrimp was overdone and the oysters were terrible. The bisque was excellent, as were the short ribs. Service was good. Robert was supposed to make an appearance but we never saw him. A little disappointed in that, as well as the... More

This place gets mixed reviews. We were at Eats on a good night. The service and food were spot on. The interior is a bit of sensory overload. The packed crowd of mostly senior diners appeared to enjoy the ambiance. We tried all of the tapas. The sliders and coconut shrimp were stand outs . Fried green tomatoes were both... More
