The Eatery is a cool little restaurant...perfect for weekday lunches, and it has the BEST jerk chicken (w/mango salsa) wrap + terrific sweet potato fries. They also serve the most unique (very light) chips that are very tasty, but hard to describe. Service is usually top-notch, and they have lots of other tasty stuff too (but I'm hooked on the... More

I am SO furious that Eatery charged an extra $25 to my card that I did not authorize. They say it's their policy to charge an extra 30% gratuity in case patrons don't tip their servers. Never mind the fact that we generously tipped our server in cash because he gave me a receipt with a 9 cent tip already... More

Delicious food, and great location. Tourists mix with trendy locals for a fun mix. We had a problem with the timing of our meal, and it was immediately solved by the manager, who was completely in charge of making sure we ended up with a positive dining experience. Very well managed restaurant, which is as important as the food. We... More

We live very close to Eatery and go regularly. We like their innovative drinks and good food. A fan of the Asian chicken salad. Service is usually pretty good but sometimes can be spotty...but not so bad that it doesn't keep us from coming back! Enjoy.

Went to the Eatery for lunch, had a burger which was pretty good but a bit pricey. Charged an additional $2.50 for a refill of a small glass of iced tea. Probably would not go back.

Sad to say that this place did not please in any way. I had the Mac and Cheese and it is hard for me to say, but, it wasn't good. I normally like just about any mac and cheese. My partner had a burger---don't. The drinks weren't very good either. All around, it was a disappointed. My other friend liked... More

Great for late breakfast or brunch. We came here on a Sunday late morning and the place was packed and very lively. Had a lovely egg white omelette on sweet potato hash browns and avocado - it was delicious!

From the cornflake french toast at brunch to the angry bird chili at lunch, Eatery is always delish!

I loved the upbeat delicious food here. The cost of the cocktails surprised me, but my guests ordered them- I never do- this may not surprise anyone else. I liked it!

After a few not so great restaurants in nyc, our hotel recommended this place, and it was so wonderful. We went for brunch, and it was the best meal of the weekend. It was very busy, and popular. The food was creative, and delicious! I can't wait to go back on my next visit!!
