Had dinner at Eatery in Hell's Kitchen on a Saturday night at about 9pm. We originally were sat inside but for some reason the A/C was not working (it was August) and also quite loud so we asked to be moved to the sidewalk patio and were promptly moved (some others moved outside as well). The patio location was much... More

Went here by chance. Lots of places to eat around here and think i randomly picked well. Service friendly. Sat outside and comfortable. Food tasty and "clean" (not stodgy) and had scrambled egg tostada with spicy fries. White sangria great and fresh fruit salad more than just a fruit salad with a mango sorbet and berry compote. Recommended and will... More

The restaurant isn't exactly in the hub of the city, so don't bother coming here especially. But if you are in the neighbourhood, it's a nice little cafe-style restaurant reminiscent of a diner. We went for brunch, and there was an extensive selection, from burgers to pancakes to salads to omelettes. Portions are huge. Food is average, nothing to wow... More

Low key dinner with old friends -- Eatery was the perfect choice. The menu has a wide variety of interesting appetizers, specials, and entrees. Dinner at our table ranged from Greek Salad to Short Ribs to london broil. The Tuna tartare and tomato appetizer was excellent. $5 sangria special (red or white) was perfect for this sunday night old friends... More

I like their food and enjoy the ambience. It is a bit overpriced but what isn't in NYC? It's pleasant right before the show to sit and chill a bit.

Enjoyed a pre-show dinner here. Server was excellent and helped with kid friendly options/suggestions. The Mac and cheese was a hit ( it's actually on the menu) as was their watermelon martini. Good dessert choices too.

Great location so we dropped in to enjoy their highly rated mac and cheese. Ordered chef's pork chop special too which was excellent. Staff was warm, welcoming and treated us like royalty. Chef responded to our praise with dessert. We'll be back and recommend to others

In what was once Hell's Kitchen, a cool little place with consistently good food, always crafted with slight twists on classic dishes. The people watching is very entertaining while enjoying your tasty dishes, and some good wine selections. Somewhat loud inside, sit in the small sidewalk area if you can for a little easier conversation (in spite of periodic blaring... More

Restaurant was extremely crowded and noisy. Service was acceptable, food was average, pricing was fair. Didn't earn a repeat visit
