Enjoyed Sunday brunch

6 of us managed to get a last minute table. We enjoyed the atmosphere (music a little loud since we were near a speaker) which was busy, but not rushed. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

This is the second time we have eaten at this restaurant on a trip to NYC. We like the variety of the menu, the price and atmosphere. Great for families! Service is very friendly and food is tasty.

Friday evening, four people and we didn't have a table reservation. The only restaurant wich we wisited, that had a lot of vacant tables was Eatery. We understood quite soon why... The floor was very slippery throughout the whole restaurant. I suppose it was due to fat / food that has dropped off and then when not washed away properly,... More

The salmon benedict is always my go-to at this lively, tightly packed local restaurant. The spicy bloody marys are great, too. We always come here for brunch when in NYC.

Very high energy crowd! Terrific menu including healthy choices. Food is outstanding and service above par! The place was ready busy on Sunday at 11:00 a.m but we weren't rushed and enjoyed the food and conversation with our waiter would be actor about his recent audition. Lots of fun and we'll definitely return. Oh yes - excellent value too. Prices... More

Eatery never fails with their consistently delicious food. Their fusion and unique approaches plus great ambiance results in a fun dining experience. The decor is classic and the eye candy from the sexy Hell's Kitchen neighborhood is prevalent as well. They accommodated kids just fine too.

The spinach/salmon egg omelette is great, only the salmon was a bit tasteless. Quick smily service, reasonable prices. I'll be back there

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
